FAGE TWO. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA WEDNESDAY, JULY M , ^ State News Letter- iContinued from page 1) Start Plans For 1949 Farm Bureau Program Highway Heat The state highway commission believes that use of asphaltic-con- crete instead of cement on re-surfacing and widening,, projects will save the state $12,000,000 in road costs in the next 10 to 15 years. The commission has received lots of "heal" since it started using the new type surfacing for roads, but members have withstood the pressure, which they say stems from cement interests which have opposed the use of asphaUic-concrete instead of cement. Commission members say that roads can be built with the new I material at a considerable saving, particularly in view of the fact All Farm Bureau members in Allamakee county this week were urged to begin thinking about the kind of a program they would like to see the organization carry out next year. Within the next couple of months the County Farm Bureau resolutions committee will be ap- I pointed and will start developing the program for 1949. "Every member of the Farm Bureau in Allamakee county is completely welcome to express his ideas concerning the organization's platform." declared President Mitchell. "We do not want our members ever to feel that they have no j opportunity to have a part in the , , i development of their official reso- that costly detours are not needed j lut - ong; . he said „ For ^ rea because traffic can be maintained;^ we wfeh to do evervthing pos . i sible to make all of our members on one-half of the road while as- phaltic-ccncrete is being laid on the other. The commission plans to take bids on widening and re-surfacing 90 to 100 miles this year, but it appears unlikely that more than 60 miles will be completed. Grant Money The legislative interim committee has come to the aid of the state department of public safety, granting the department $110,000 from the contingent fund to meet increased feel welcome to express themselves." "When the resolutions committee is appointed, it will have the responsibility of drawing up a set of resolutions which express the sentiment of Farm Bureau members in the county. Once these resolutions have keen officially adopted at the annual meeting this fall, they cannot be changed until the following year. The resolutions set forth the policies of the organization, and it last winter, there was a decided drop in the spring, and the trend now seems to be an increase. The convictions included all traffic violations, although the predominate ones are still OMVI and driving without a drivers license. The number of peopde required to post proof with the Department of financial responsibility for three years in the future because of these convictions total 2033, divided ns follows: JainWy, 409, February, 460, March, 288, April, 228, May, 310, and June. 338. for the first six months of 1948. The records of all violators as received is carefully examined to insure the general driving public that if they become involved in an accident with a previous violator, they may be assured that this vio- later is now financially responsible. lllllllllllllllllllllllll DOUBLE-DUTY WARDROBE BEST FOR LIGHT TRAVEL costs until January 1.

Tax Yield Up New tax records were set during the past fiscal year. State Treasurer John Grimes has reported that income from 13 special taxes and liquor store profits amounted to $70 for each man, woman and child in the state. The produced a record S139.492.000. or a gain of $26,000,000 over last year. The only special tax which did not show a gain was the chain store levy. Beer and Oelo tax receipts were nearly double the "take" of last year. MILEAGE The Chamber of Commerce at Iowa Falls released a number of small free balloons recently, each bearing a small card. One of the cards was returned from Hurricane, West Virginia, a distance of over ;660 air-line miles. UPSET Seven met dealth in a truck upset near Grand Junction last week. But they were hogs, not people. Ninety more porkers escaped death when the big semi-trailer in which they were being hauled upset. part in their development. DECLINE SHOWN IN DRIVER SUSPENSION There has been a steady decline in the number of Iowa drivers being suspended for failure to post security, following an accident, according to the monthly report of Kenneth F. Neu, Director, Safety Responsibility Division, to the Commissioner of Public Safety. The following suspensions were reported since the first of the year: January, 719, February, 886. March, 456, April. 391. May. 303, and June, 254. This totals 3009 for the sixth- month period of 1948. In submitting his report, Neu stated "the day of the financially irresponsible driver is almost over in Iowa, and that Iowa drivers must make a choice of being financially responsible or face loss of their driving privilege." He added this is an indication that the driving public is becoming more conscious of their individual responsibilities in the operation of motor vehicles, which is becoming a matter of concern. He pointed out that although convictions were quite numerous WitlTtwo-in-one outfits and some wise planning, even for a month's vacation you can travel light. A complete wardrobe needn't mean taking everything you own, comments Frances Friedell, Iowa State College clothing specialist She suggests clothes that doublf for more than one occasion. Of course, consider the mode of travel, the things you'll be doing and the climate. There's no point in taking clothes for special activities unless they're planned. The sunback bolero dresses popular this year are good for variety without bulk. And so are print dresses with jackets to go over them. The print doesn't show the wrinkles and soil as easily as do plain colors. A suit, perhaps three-piece, is the mainstay of any travel wardrobe. Make it a plain one which becomes casual or dressy with a change of accessories. Of lightweight wool, cool butcher linen, crease-resistant linen (it's coming back on the market) or faille, it will survive wear with few wrinkles. For underthings, Mrs. Friedell suggests easy to launder nylon. Seersucker and cotton knit take well to packing and laundering, she adds. And don't forget rayon and wool jersey. Coordinate your wardrobe colors, Mrs. Friedell emphasizes. Then you'll need fewer accessories. Dark colors travel best. Grey is especially popular this year, and for good reason in the travel wardrobe. Generally, simple tailored clothes go more places than fussy ones. As for hats, Mrs. Friedell says there are some to go in your suitcase. Investigate the halo " hats which open out fiat and berets.
