FAOB EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA WEDNESDAY. JPN E 9, ^ IN PERSON! FFA Boys Find Trip To Black Hills Interesting HERE HE IS AMERICA S NEW SINGING STAR AND HIT COMPOSER EDDY HOWARD AND HIS ORCHESTRA TUESDAY, JUNE 15 Checkerboard Ballroom - Taproom PRAIRIE DD CHIEX, WIS. The following account of a trip made to the Black Hills area of South'Dakota was made by a group of Fostville F. F. A. youths who just returned from the tour. The Black Hills Trip "The Fostville chapter of Future Farmers of America made its first annual tour to the Black Hills of South Dakota May 31 to June 4. It is hoped the program can include such a tour each year in the future. The boys left Postville Monday morning, and after having dinner at the home of Instructor John Madsen's parents at Ringsted, drove on to arrive at Mitchell, South Dakota that night. The boys were equipped with sleeping bags. roots, and tents. Nick Starcevich i save the boys first hand help on the j art of "roughing it." j The next day the group drove through the Badlands, but before getting entirely through Madsen's Plymouth ran low on water so it was necessary to have two boys get some before being able to proceed. The car was "christianed" right on the spot "The Faithless," or words to that effect. Soon the group was under way again and arrived at THANK YOU! I wish to thank the voters of Allamakee County for their support at the Primaries on Monday. Your support of my candidacy was highly appreciated. MORRIS A. SVENDSON NOTICE!

They not only gave special rates for some of their best cabins, but went all out to make the boys -feel right at home. They liked it so well at the Baken cabins it was decided to remain there for another day. If any one plans to make a trip to the Hills the boys can certainly recommend this park very highly. Wednesday, the third day, was really the "big day." The boys went through the Nameless Cave and also saw the large collection of guns, Indian art. and antique items used by early settlers. The Zoo was interesting and many speci- mans such as peacocks, alligators, and rattlesnakes were seen by some boys for the first time. Next, the group traveled to Mt. Rushmore to see the Shrine of Democracy. The faces representing Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln are carved on the side of Mt. Rushmore. Next the group drove through two of the several tunnels in the hills, where Burr Cook and Dale Schroeder found they must have used a smaller bus than we were driving in trying for size, as it seemed there was only one-half inch on either side for clearance. After seeing the "needles," "The Needles Eye," and "the double reverse bridge" where, two bridges are placed one above the other, the group drove on to be again detained by fuel pump trouble before arriving at Hill City. It was fortunate to have 35 "capable" F. F. A. mechanics along so everyone knew soon what was the trouble. In Hills City the boys went to see Louis Koevenig's brother, after which they drove back to Rapid City for the night. The next day found a tired group ready to start back for Postville, by this time called the best little city on earth they arrived at Fairmont, Minnesota and made camp at Interlaken park. The bus developed trouble, so while it was being repaired the boys enjoyed swimming, boating and fishing at the lakes. After an early morning swim, the group started the final laps of the trip, and arrived at Postville in the afternoon. After about 36 hours of make-up sleep the boys were able to give a more detailed account of a most interesting trip." 'ACCIDENT* ON MILL RIVER ROAD D-X NEWS 7:15 A. M.

Iowa State Convention Friday, July 23rd. has been set as the date for the biennial Iowa State Republican Convention, with the State Judicial Convention being set for a week later, on Friday, July 30th. Both conventions will be 1 held in Des Moines, the State Convention at the Coliseum and the Judicial Convention at the Ft. Des Moines Hotel. County Conventions, to name the delegates to both the State and Judicial Conventions, will be held in each of the 99 counties on Friday, July 2nd. In order to give the counties larger representation at both of the coming state conventions, the State Republican Central Committee decided to increase the number of delegates by 1,089 over the Delegate Convention held last April. At that convention there were 2,307 delegates. The coming State and Judicial Conventions will each have 3,396. Polk County will have the largest representation with 194 delegates. Three other counties will have delegations of more than 100. They are Linn with 111, Scott with 107, and Woodbury with 106. The smallest delegation, numbering 15, will come from Osceola County. The apportionment was made on the basis of five delegates at large from each county and one for every 125 votes or major fraction thereof, cast for. the Republican candidate for Governor in the 1946 General Election. The purpose of the Judicial Convention is to nominate candidates for the Supreme Court Bench while the duty of the delegates to the State Convention will be to fill any existing vacancies on the state ticket and to adopt the Party Platform. Iowa Republicans will present a united front this year backed by a strong state ticket composed of capable men who will carry on the policies of efficient administration of the state's business and the building of a Greater Iowa. With such a strong ticket as the Republicans have to offer there is every reason to predict that Iowa will roll up its traditional Republi- You can control small gullies around your farm by planting some reed canarygrass, Iowa State Col lege crops experts say.
