PAGE TEN. THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE, IOWA WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBEl , See It by C. \V. D. Enjoyed a sneak prevue of the Big-Four Fair midway Tuesday and was in no little manner surprised st the number of entertainment features to be offered. The midway is bigger than many I have observed through the territory and and there are some real entertainers in the loop of activity. All of the concessions were not in place at the time but new units were arriving to be added to the circle of fun. One interesting feature to me was a large tent which contained many varieties of animals and birds common to the North American continent. There were foxes, wolves, all types of field rodents, varieties of the squirrel family, ra­ coons, possums, alligators, bob cats, hawks, owls, pigeons, and many others. This tent alone was an educational exhibit in itself and well worth several minutes of anyones time. The bearded lady also assured me that the show she and her hus- FERTILIZER ORDERS We will be-glad to take your Commercial Fertilizer orders for FALL or SPRING DELIVERY.

Farmers Store Telephone 331 POSTVILLE, IOWA band, the alligator skinned man, would present a feature well worth seeing. The fight arena was going into place, the sword swallower was practicing his trade, the fun house was being prepared and in general, there was a buzz of activity everywhere. The dance pavilion was also undergoing a change. New decorations had been put in place and fresh paint added color to the interior. It looked like a successful year for the fair and an opportunity for the people of the four-county area to relax and enjoy a great show. • • • • • Thursday will mark the third anniversary of V-J Day. the formal lend of hostilities of World War II. This happy occasion is now history but probably will in some, instances go by unnoticed. The peace that has followed has become an unsettled state of affairs with former allies now sparring in the world ring. It seems as though the war clouds that were supposed to have been dispelled with the signing of that treaty were only pushed to one side and are still lazily rolling, churning and building on the horizon. Peace in our day is still a thought with a big question mark. Iowa is one of six states which will submit the question of a cash bonus for veterans of World War II to the voters at the November election. The act passed by the last general assembly of Iowa subject to the voters' approval would authorize expenditures of $85,000.000 for compensation to Iowa's sen-icemen. Those serving be- bween September 16, 1940. and September 2. 1945, who were residents of Iowa six months before entering the service, would receive S10 per month for domestic service and S12.50' per month for foreign service up to a maximum of $500. The question as it will appear on the ballot is printed in full in another section of this issue of the Herald. * * * » • The Veterans' Administration says that more than 10 million veterans are allowing about S100 million worth of low-cost National Service Life Insurance to slip through their fingers. The VA apparently overlooks the obvious fact that not even the "slothful" veterans would drop such a terrific bargain without good reason. Sooner or later they get fed up dealings with hordes of bureaucrats who suffer from chronic fill-out- the-enclosed-form-itis.—The Veterans' Corner. Since the first of June shipments of feeder cattle from the four principal markets have been running ahead of a year ago. TRI-CITY GOLF CLUB ANNUAL STAG Thurs., September 9 — • — GAMES -:- GOLF * Lunch Served Beginning at 6:00 P. M. School News— Football Practice Starts. This is a big week for the Pirate football squad. The 30 boys on the varsity squad will have to be divided into a first team and a second team. The remaining boys will join the freshman squad of 16 for practice purposes. The biggest job will be to find the' boys who will make up the starting 11 for the St. Mary's of Waterloo contest here on September 10. Many of the boys have rounded into shape through the nine practice sessions that were held last week and are ready for heavy work. During the past week the boys were given conditioning exercises, passing and kicking drills, light blocking and tackling practice and were briefed on plays for the first game. The squad suffered a blow when it was learned that Roger Christofferson, ah outstanding regular for the past two years, would probably be lost for the season. X-rays revealed a defective hip joint resulting from a childhood disease that may make it impossible for Roger to engage in football this season. A brief sketch of the squad mem bers reveals a bit of the team's chances in meeting this year's schedule. The squad members: LeRoy Duwe, Senior, 5' 9", 152. Saw some action in a few first team games in 47, and was a regular on the reserve team which played three games. A strong contender for the regular center position. Don Elvers, Senior, 5' 6Vi", 147.

You never see me scared, do you?" For Pure Pasteurized Milk, Cream, Chocolate Drink and Cottage Cheeie, CaU 237-J. .SNOW BALLS J. D. Kruse of Little Hock, Iowa, reports "snowballs in August." Not the kind that drop from the sky, however. A number of "snowball" plants, which normally bloom about Decoration Day, have suddenly decided to blossom out there. 237-J SKUNK John Strodtman of Emmetsburg heard a skunk in his chicken house last week. Not having a shotgun handy, he sent his faithful dog, "Shep," in to kill the marauder. Shep went in and came back immediately, carrying a chicken which he carried off and ate. A little disgusted, Mr. Strodtman had his son bang on the chicken-house wall while Strodtman stood guard at the door. The first creature to come out felt the weight of Mr. Strodtman's club. It was another prize hen. Finally the skunk came out and Mr. Strodtman killed it with one blow. Nobody got sprinkled. If you'll need more storage space for silage this fall, consider either a temporary trench or an upright silo. Both have been used to advantage, says Floyd Arnold, extension dairyman at Iowa State College. LATE WANT ADS ! Found—purse. Owner can have same by identifying and paying for ad.

Iowa Woman Reappointed The recent reappointment of Mrs. Robert W. Macauley as assistant chairman of the Republican National Committee, and likewise director of the Women's , Division, should be good news to the women of Iowa. Mrs. Macauley is an Iowa woman, the former Jane Hamilton, of Ft. Madison. She first took over these duties in 1947 and is the youngest woman in the history of any political party to be assigned to such an important post. Prominent party leaders in all sections of the country have expressed from time to time confidence in her ability and have lauded her efforts. In preparation for the 1948 presidential campaign, Mrs. McCauley laid the ground work for an intensive and extensive woman's participation. She directed seven "Organization for Victory" women's conferences in key geographical centers. Another announcement made by Chairman Hugh Scott was the naming of Mrs. Charles W. Weiss, Jr.. of Rochester. N. Y., as associate campaign manager for the Dewey-Warren ticket. She is the first woman in the history of any political party to become a national campaign director. On the Republican ticket this year are many women candidates. There are nine Republican women who are candidates for the National House of Representatives and on Monday, September 13. the voters of rock-ribbed Republican Maine are scheduled to elect the first Republican woman to a full fleldged term in the United States Senate. She is Margaret Chase Smith, who since 1940 has represented the Second District of Maine in the House. Wilson and Agriculture If there is one state in the union which should be interested in the Senate Committee on Agriculture it is Iowa. Senator George A. Wilson is now the third member of that Committee. All places on committees are determined by seniority, so if Senator Wilson is not returned to the Senate, Iowa will probably have no representation on this body. But that's not the whole story. The present chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture is Senator Capper, of Kansas. He is not a candidate for reelection. So with his retirement, other senators on the committee move up toward the chairmanship. The second member of the committee is Sena­ tor George D. Aiken, of Vermont, who automatically would become chairman. This would place Senator Wilson in the position of second or ranking member of the committee. But the story is still not complete. Senator Aiken is not expected to take the chairmanship of the Committee on Agriculture because he is also chairman of another major committee. Thus Senator Wilson, upon his reelection would become the chairman of this important committee. Certainly this would place the Iowa farmer in a decidedly advantageous position. Senator Wilson has always been known as the friend of the farmer, and as chairman of this important committee h« have even a greater opport be of service.
