Editorial Comments - - - INTERESTED ??? YES or NO ??? The regular meeting of the Fayette Youth Council was scheduled to have been held Monday evening. July 9 at the Legion Hall. Because of the fact tbere were 2 adult advisors, one Youth Council member and one honorary' member present, only an informal dis cussion was held The same situation existed at the preceding meeting in June. There will be no dance held Friday night. July IX as the Legion will be participating in the city wide promotion' - nor will there be any further opening of the Center until more evidence of concrete interest is shown by both parents and Youth Center members. The adult advisors felt that previous disciplinary action taken should have solved behavior problems, but disrespect and destruction of property, failure to accept responsibility, and general disobedience still prevails. The Council appreciates the American Legion having permitted its using the Hall. A few weeks ago over one hundred invitations were sent out to parents of members to attend a Parent-Youth dance, and out of that number there were nine sets of parents represented, although almost sixty young people attended S.r.h when an average att. ndance of over 50 Youth rn mbers register at an activity it would seem the p-ojoct is ail worthwhile, but discipline problems should not be a part of any true Youth Center, and it should no! be impossible to get pvents to serve on- the Council, or to take active part toward the betterment of a project beneficial to their own children. Now we are leaving the future of our Center up to you parents and members. The next regular meeting of the Council will be held Hie 2nd Monday of August. (August 14th) We invite all who are interested to attend and try' once more to work out our difficulties, and give all an opportunity to share in the responsibility. The meeting will be fx id at the Legion Hall at 7:30 P. M As far as the active Council Members are concerned this is the last time «uch an invitation will be issued, and an organization which has been held together for 2 1 * years by a few ink* ested people will come to an end. Will you be there A: mist 14th ??? Youth Council Board KM her Johnson Publicity Chairman Big Question Does anyone in the government really want to save the taxpayers money? Before considering that question, read this story. Last January H. established electric utilities-all big taxpayers, all under public regulation -submitted a plan for firming the federal government's hydroelectric system on the Missouri river. It would work on a barter plan, with no money changing hands. The utilities would supply needed supplemental power to the government system during low water periods, and the government would pay it back during the periods when water releases were ample. Now the Department of the Interior has rejected to the proposal. Instead, it apparently has decided w accept a plan proposed by a group of rural electric coops involving the construction of a $3G million steam plant. The plant doesn't exist now, couldn't be completed for several years, and wouldn't be needed at all if the utility plan were accepted It would be financed with a Rural Electrification Administration loan, at below-cost interest rates, which is a form of subsidy if there ever was one. And, as a practical matter, it would provide only about 30 per cent as much supplementary power as would the utility offer. There's the story. Now you might consider question which opens this little piece. the Invest In America A million new jobs a year call for at least $17,000 new capital investment per job--seventeen billion dollars per year. And at least another twenty billion dollars a year is needed to maintain the plants and machinery providing the 67 million jobs we now enjoy. Where is the money coming from? The answer: From the same source of capital that has provided it in the past savings in the form of retained earnings of business enterprises and the savings of the American people-your savings. Survey suggesis changes In entertainment program By E. T. Alcorn As many of you who attended the 1961 fair know, a survey was conducted in an effort to learn the likes and dislikes of our patrons. As a result of the survey, several changes have been made in the entertainment program that will be presented to fairgoers this year. We nave endeavored to retain the popular features and to add others in which an interest was shown. One of the new features to be added is an open competition tractor pulling contest This event has proven to be very popular everywhere providing it has been properly conducted. We have secured the services of Ken Vesperman of Lancaster, Wisconsin to run the contest. Ken has excellent equipment and a wealth of experience and we are confident that a first class contest will result Contestants will compete for cash prizes totaling 9450. There will be pulls in three different classes depending on the weight of the tractor entered. Each contestant will pull a weighted stone boat over a 220 foot course which will be laid out in front of the grandstand. Weight will be added every 10 feet as the tractor proceeds down the course until it stalls. The contestant who • travels the greatest distance will be the winner of the class and will pick up 950. prize money. There ^will be a total of $150. in cash awarded to the first five places in each of the three classes. Rules of You don't have to own stock in a corporation to be a capitalist- an investor. That's only one way. If you put your savings in a bank or savings and loan institution, or take out life insurance or buy estate, your money-your savings-is put to work by business and industry to develop jobs, production of goods and services. That's what investment means -putting money to work. Let's voluntarily and wisely Invest in America: our funds and our faith in our future. "We are all capitalists-investors of our savings.

The oldest persons present were Mr. and Mrs. John Wilkinson. 91 and 90, former neighbors of the Wegners, Lynelle Yvonne Wolfe, 16 months, daughter of the Max Wolfes, was the youngest. the contest and entry blanks will soon be available from all implement dealers in Fayette County, or may be obtained by writing, to the Secretary of the Fair in West Union. Another afternoon feature to be added this year is not a new one, in fact it is one of the oldest forms of entertainment at fairs. However it has not been presented at the Fayette County Fair for several year. On Thursday afternoon members of the Iowa Thoro- bred Horse Racing Association will present a six event progrtm of running races. All races will be started with a starting gate. As a special added attraction there will be two heats of harness racing with Shetland ponies between the shafts.

And it seems th. re'«~ no v .ith thing as doing something individ ually. . . everything is done in a group, such as getting a drink, -something to eat going lo the- hath room. Three times we were chased out of the bathroom so they could hold a short convention. And, to wind things up before they even got to sleep, the question "what time are you going to get up" was thoroughly discussed. Well, we knew that if they didn't get to sleep pretty soon. . • they'd still be up when they should be getting up. t Anyway, the girls appeared to be having a good time. . . and apparently that's uhat slumlvr parties are for. What th< heck, you can sleep anytime. —•— There has been considerable comment on the color chosei, for the front of the new Lade.- building. And most of the comments were derogatory. . . or at least just a little insulting. However two or three people did say that it looked real nice. Now they may or may not be color blind, but we certainly appreciat ed their comments. Quite frankly, the color didn't turn out just as we had anticipated, but we didn't feel it was too bad. Especially not bad enough to go to the expense of repainting It right away. But. we also like to make everyone happy if possible. And. since there are so many who expressed a negative opinion of the color, we have come up with a way tu change it. We'll put a container on the counter in the Leader office, and anyone who dislikes the color of the building is cjuite welcome to step inside and drop pieces of silver or green backs into the container for the purpose of repainting the building. When enough contributions are received - we'll i e paint. Friday night, July 13. the black cats will be howling again in Fayette, as the second Mad Midnight M.irathon takes over. Let's hope it's bigger and better than the first. Practically all of the Fayette merchants are participating in this sales event, and they have some real good bargains. The sale will begin at 8 p. m. and last until midnight. And many of the stores will have exceptional bargains to be placed on sale each hour of the evening. There was standing room only in Fayette during the last Mid- nighCMarathon. And the customers and merchants were all happy with the promotion and results. This one should really be terrific, so come early and stay late if you want to pick up those bargains.
