But they are so Hen prepared by wrong methods that jir true flavor is not discovered and j hear such comments as "I hate ines" and "What, nothing but slew|apricots for dessert?" jo average cook either soaks dried pi too long or cooks it too much, j home economists at Iowa State Jlege. Sometimes the dried fruit is Btencier that it needs only a little iking and no cooking at all to make palatable. Yet the housewife will ; prunes or apricots all night and boil them vigorously until they ! both shape and flavor. „i general, it is best to wash the j|t carefully, soak it for an hour, and cook it in the same water for J an hour, very gently. Use only fugh water to cover. Avoid adding |much sugar. A pinch of salt usu- ' brings out flavor, and for variety pice of lemon or orange may be |ved with the fruit. pi E.

MORGAN [ Veterinarian f Office in Stockman Garage I Telephone No. 273 -OUIS SCHUTTE Evergreen School—Post Township Esther Peterson, teacher. We have completed our eighth month of school. Our school will close May 22 with a picnic on the school grounds. We arc proud of the successful little program of a few weeks ago. From the money we earned we purchased a lamp and a water can. A recent entertainment brought a new bulletin board. Miss Peterson has been having three interesting contests: spelling, reading and citizenship. Virginia Kalke was awarded an autograph book. The pupils have all enjoyed writing in it. Robert Krousie got an aero­ plane bunk fur winning in spelling. The citizenship contest is between the boys and girls. We hope the best side wins. —Barbara Brainard. Undertaker and Embalmer lOrders Taken For Out Flowers Myron School—Post Township Dorothy Bray, teacher. April 2-1 marked the end of the school trail. Everyone was both happy and sad. Sunday, April 26. we enjoyed a picnic at Docorah. Last Friday afternoon we presented a small program to our parents. Some of the parents could not come on account of the bad weather. They all enjoyed the puppet plays very much. Robert Livingood led in perfect attendance this year, having missed only one day, Bonnie Lou Evans came second with only one and one-half days of absence, and Harlan Bray was third with three days of absence. Four more have been added to the dental honor roll: Calvin, Bernard, and Evelyn Snitker. and Miss Bray. This makes a total of seven. Our record could have been better: nevertheless, it shows we are interested in better health. Visitors this period wore: Miss Irene Baltz. of Postville. Mrs. Harold Flack. Mrs. Joe Evans and Bobbie, Mrs. Kenneth Livingood. Donna Mae, Mavis and Milton Dale, Doris Winters. Darlene Westerholm. and Beulah and Raymond Bray. Last week we all enjoyed a trip to the woods. We Hatched the birds and picked flowers. Many of the pupils earned spelling, reading and perfect attendance certificates. For nature study we planted some beans and peas and watched them grow. With the citizenship club money we decided to buy an animal booklet. Our room looked very much like spring with the pussy willows and the J flowers. I Tin's month the curtains held characters of poems we have learned. The ' bulletin board was a poster of pussy willows and spring birds, and a series of Bible pictures. The primary literature class enjoyed many new spring poems and stories. The first grade language class enjoyed writing about nature, health, spring, fun and animals. Pupils who earned a half holiday were: Betty and Allen Lawson, Bonnie Evans, Robert Livingood, Vivian. Leslie. Charlotte and Betty Flack, and Harlan Bray. TROUT FISHING GOOD AS SEASON GETS UNDER WAY With the streams in better condition than for several years and 20,000 adult trout slocked in advance of the open season, trout fishing was reported to be extremely good on the opening day. Reports reaching the Conservation Commission offices indicate that many obtained their limit of 8 trout. The average size was from 9 to 14 inches with one 19'i and one 21 inch brown trout reported. The majority of trout caught were brown, however, a fair number of rainbows and brooks were included in the first few days of the open season. Nine billion dollars is a lot of money to spend on relief, says "On the Air" in the Independence Conservative, but there are any number of well-informed men and women who sincerely believe that if things had been allowed to drift as they were during the last two years of Hie Hoover administration and nothing had been done for the relief of the unemployed our country would have been faced with rebellion, if not revolution. If they are right, then nine billions was not too much to pay for saving us from sucli a fate. Lemon juice mixed with wood ashes will remove tarnish from brass. Law Versus Chance A TENDENCY of the unenlightened human mind to believe that it can ultimately better conditions, financial or otherwise, by resorting to what is known as the element of chance, 1 B one of the delusions which seem to beset mortal existence. If uncorrected, it may lead the individual Into most undesirable, If not, indeed, unlawful byways of speculative endeavor. It may also tend to keep him In a continual condition of unrest and disappointment because of unfulfilled hopes and expectations. Furthermore, he may fall to see that having admitted what is called chance Into his thinking, having accepted it as something, and consented to its so- called operation, he may see this attitude of thought externalized in his human experience in ways which are not desirable. The Apostle Paul said (Romans 6:16), "Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey?" To yield oneself a servant to chance is to place oneself in a precarious position. Moreover, it means pinning one's faith to false gods— to things which in reality do not exist, such as so-called good fortune, good luck, and so on. Anything which can change In a moment from what appears to be good to something which manifests itself as ill, was never good and never will be, for good is stable, unchangeable, indestructible, never subject to chance, or swayed by untoward circumstance. What a contrast to such a possible experience is that of one whose thought and life are governed by divine law! It means safety instead of danger, security in place of uncertainty and risk, stability and steadfastness of thought and purpose instead of vacillating gullibility. Conformity to divine law in one's thinking and conduct precludes any such thing as chance. Correct thinking resulting in right action brings its own legitimate return and reward. The more one's thoughts and life are governed by the law of God, good, the more assured is one not alone of true prosperity and success, but also of safeguard from all ill. . . . How reassuring it is to remember that as mental allegiance is transferred from any dependence upon chance to reliance upon the operation of divine law, not alone are we ourselves safeguarded from harm, but we are helping to safeguard the entire world. On page 424 of the Chris, tian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes, "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God's unerring direction and thus bring out harmony." Who is there, who, having changed "the notion of chance" to "God's unerring direction" does not feel happier, more at peace, more safe and cecure? He has exchanged a precarious and unstable mental footing, which Christ Jesus spoke of as a house built "upon the sand," for one which the Master described as a house built "upon a rock," against which the winds and rain and floods of adverse circumstance could not prevail. . . . One thus conforming with divine law is graphically described in the first Psalm in the following beautiful metaphor (Psalms 1:3): "And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."—The Christian Science if on it or.

FRED STRAATE. High school seniors from Postville and surrounding communities have been invited to be the guests of Luther College at an all-day program of sports and other entertainment on Luther's annual High School Senior Day to be held here Wednesday, May 6. Designed to acquaint prospective college students with the opportunities Luther offers in the educational field, Senior Day will open with .an address on college education by D. O. L. Olson at 10:30 Wednesday morning and will conclude with the annual University of Iowa-Luther tussle on the baseball diamond at 3:30 in the afternoon. A varied and interesting program has been prepared which will be cer-| tain to attract the attention of all stu-l dents no matter in what branch of liberal education their interests may' lie. At 11:00 a. m. the Mixed Chorus will present a concertized version of von Flotow's famous opera "Martha." At 11:30 a half-hour concert will be presented by the famous Luther College Concert Band under the direction of Dr. Carlo A. Sperati. This is the same band which will leave Decorah on Juno 3 on a European Diamond Jubilee Tour. Clifton Weihe, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Weihe, will accompany the band on the tour which will include the'capitals and principle cities of six European nations. The climax of the day's program will be the baseball game between Luther and the University of Iowa. This is one of the toughest games on this year's Norse schedule and will find an exceptionally strong nine from the state institution pitted against a young but rapidly improving Luther aggregation. The game, at which the visiting students will be the guests of the school, should find one of the largest crowds of the season in the local stands. In addition to the special features of the program of the day exhibits will be prepared by the science department and the visiting seniors invited to visit the laboratories and other buildings on the campus. All department heads and instructors will be present to help and advise'the visitors with their personal educational problems. For Representative I hereby announce myself as a can didate for the office of State Representative from the 90th district of Iowa, on the Democratic ticket, sub ject to the will of the voters at the June primaries, and respectfully so.- licit your support and co-operation, OVE T.

MEYER'S Four-County Hatchery If there are any West Union folk who haven't visited the new state park adjacent to West Union this spring, we warn you that you will be a greatly surprised person when you do, remarks the West Union Union. The progress made last fall and winter is simply marvelous. The grounds have been partially landscaped and planted to hundreds of shrubs and trees. Artistic rustic seats have been fashioned without the aid of hardware and a most inviting shelter house of stone overlooking the artificial lake is ready for use. The house has a cement floor and is a most inviting place to eat lunch on a windy day or to rest while meditating on the beauty of the view from its wide-open front and an excellent shelter in a sudden rainstorm. There are seats in plenty and a huge open fireplace has been included in the east wall. Numerous stoves built of the native rock have been scattered over the grounds and convenient tables with benches for seats are available, also plenty of good spring water. The CCC boys built paths over the place and the destination is plainly marked on neat signs. The name of the park has been placed on a rustic sign board at the entrance. On the "hill parking space has been marked off by the use of the brown rails in evidence in so many places in the park. The autoist may have his "stall" all day and feel that his car is safe in this place. At the Iowa Press Association convention in Des Moines recently it wa3 brought out that farm auction sales which were advertised with fairly liberal space brought the farmers putting on the auctions between $200 and $300 more than when small space was used, says the Decorah Journal. An interesting report was made on this subject by Tom Purcell, Iowa Falls Citizen, who won recognition as having the best farm newspaper among the weekly papers in the state. While this is not the farm auction period, this is something for farmers to consider. f' 4 THE YEAR 'ROUND TRACTOR It's fun to run!
