The committee, which will make recommendations to the next legislature, has received reports from several groups, and the' total is nearly one billion dollars. But it won't be done all at once. The program is to be spread over 15 or 20 years, and .would, if completed, give a dust proof surface for 9.700 miles of main roads.

Brown Liquor Books The new liquor books go on sale June 15, and purchasers will find they are brown. The state liquor commission, which did not follow the suggestion of prohibitionists that the books be black with a skull and cross bones, adopted the new color in preference to red because red is "too conspicuous." Some 370,000 permit books were sold the past fiscal year. That's a drop of 140.000/from the previous year and reflects the end of wartime rationing when several members of family held liquor books. Dangerous Trio Tops Roster Of Hazards Spring, that time-honored season renowned for its affect on the minds of young men. is a turning point for more tragic matters as well, safety experts warned today in a plea for caution against Spring hazards. Three outstanding accidental killers come out of winter's hiding in June, they said. The three are drownings, excessive heat and traffic deaths for children four years old and younger, according to the Accident Prevention Department, Association of Cacualty and Surety Companies. "These accident hazards can easily be explained by the weather," says Thomas N. Boate, director of the Public Safety Division of the Department. "Warm days bring people swarming out of, doors, not remembering the caution they had learned against summer hazards by the time they were forced 'indoors the previous Fall." 4,500 Drown Annually Mr. Boate pointed out that about four and a half thousand persons drown every year. Many of these tragic accidents occur to persons who have gone in the water for the first time in a season. Lack of vigorous outdoor exercise during the winter has left their muscles soft and susceptible to quick fatigue. Yet they carelessly swim too far from shore or do other hazardous things for which they are not physically prepared. "Just because you could swim several miles or battle strong surf at the end of the swimming season last year doesn't mean you can do it now," said Mr. Boate. He urged swimmers to take it easy for a time until they get in shape and are sure of their capabilities. Farmers Set Good Example "Even tho excessive heat deaths and heat exhaustion accidents are at their peaks in July and August, the Spring months of May and June still take a huge toll in this type of death. Farmers, doing Spring plowing and other seasonal i work are especially vulnerable, but | set a safety example for the nation by being careful. The farmer always wears a hat in the field, and takes frequent short rests. Though his work is hard he knows how to apportion his energy. Only two per cent of the accidental deaths on tarms are due to heat exhaustion. Excessive heat accidents take two forms — sunstroke and heat pi-ostration — the Accidents Prevention Department warns. A sudden, splitting headache is the first warning of sunstroke, after which the victim falls unconscious. The temperature sometimes rises as high as 10 degrees and first aid should be for the purpose of bringing the temperature down. Children Allowed Outdoors In heat prostration, on the other hand, the victim's temperature drops and he has a chilled clammy feeling. Regardless of how hot the day, first aid treatment Is to raise the body; temperature.. In either case a doctor should be called immediately. Reason for the sudden rise in traffic deaths for small children during the Spring months is that they are released from confinement indoors and allowed to play outside. A majority of the deaths are pedestrian accidents where youngsters run out into the streets or driveways and are struck by motor vehicles. Parents would do well to ignore the currently popular cowboy song and "fence them in," the Department safety men said. To motorists they added the advice to be extra cautious while driving in residential areas. Cultivation Best Way To Kill Garden Weeds Conditions have been just about right this spring for everything that grows in your garden—including weeds. Unfortunately, there's no chemical weed killer that can be safely used in the garden, so it's still a matter of keeping the rows weed- free by good cultivation. Ed Cott, Iowa. State horticulturist, says that the less you disturb the soil when cultivating, the better job you are doing. He suggests using a sharp hoe, and simply shaving the weeds off the ground by cutting their roots just beneath the surface. That can be done successfully if you always get them when they are young, he says. Deep cultivation only brings more weed seeds to the surface where they can sprout and grow. It also injures the roots of garden plants and decreases yields. Cott reports that after four or five shallow cultivations, weeds won't spring up so readily and will be easier to control for the rest of the summer. Keep your mind and eyes ahead of your car. An empty train of thought doesn't whistle ,a warning ! Swine Vaccination Project Successful More than eight million pigs have been vaccinated against swine erysipelas in the past 10 years in the largest single animal disease control experiment in American history, livestock health authorities reported today. The huge experimental project, using the live-culture and serum method of vaccination, hus been carried on since 1938 under federal and state supervision, the American Foundation for Animal Health reported, and results have been "entirely satisfactory." "Successful control of swine erysipelas, however, still must begin with proper management on the individual farm." the statement warned. "This disease is costing farmers millions of dollars in pig losses, and must be fought by every possible means. An immediate diagnosis of any suspected case will enable the swine raiser to segregate the infected animal and take other Illl "Yours For Dancing" TOM OWEN — and his — COWBOYS Of Radio Station WMT Saturday, June 12 COMING!

Postville Quality Foods A Northeast Iowa Institution AN OPPORTUNITY TO OWN AN INTEREST IN A LOCAL MEAT PACKING PLANT AN OPPORTUNIY TO BUY STOCK IN POSTVILLE QUALITY FOODS Northeast Iowa is a prosperous farming region. . . Here the food is produced. Here it should be processed. We have raised livestock in Northeast Iowa—shipped it to Chicago and other large cities—there it was processed—and they in turn shipped it back to us. Now there is a movement of food processing plants from the large cities to the farming sections—to the place where the food is produced—to the source of the raw materials. THAT IS ECONOMICAL! THAT MAKES SENSE! Financial and Economic Surveys of the Meat Packing Industries made by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago for the years 1946 and 1947 reveal that the smaller packing plants, mostly located closer to the source of supplies, are sue- cessful and net a larger gam on invested capital than the larger plants in the larger cities. . Two men with long experience in the operation of meat packing plants will be associated m the management of POSTVILLE QUALITY FOODS They will make their home, in Postville. They know the meat packing industry. They are investing their money in POSTVILLE QUALITY FOODS WRITE OR CALL FRED W. GROTH, President, Postville, or any of the following Directors, of Postville: W.
