The famous violinist and hi* Stradivariusj stars of the Chevrolet Musical Moments programs, have the distinction of going on the air from more broadcasting stations than any other program in the history of radio. Three hundred and seventy-eight stations broadcast Rubinoff three times a week, a total of 1134 fifteen-minute programs. That figures out at 283 hours, and if one week's programs were broadcast one after the other, day and night, it would require 11 days. The illustration shows Rubinoff, carrying his precious violin, posing with his car after a special appearance at Detroit. For Supervisor —1937 Term.

BABY BEEF FEEDING WAS REAL PROFITABLE LAST YEAR Feeding baby beeves was a profitable enterprise on Iowa farms last year, even though calves cost more per pound and feed costs were higher than in 1934. This fact is revealed in the 1935 summary of 4-H baby beef club work carried out in 98 counties, compiled by J. S. Quist. assistant state 4-H club leader in the Iowa State College Extension Service. The baby beef project was the most popular of all the livestock and farm crops clubs, leading in number of members enrolled, size of project, premium money won and total volume of business. More than 82 per cent of the 3.181 Iowa 4-H club members who enrolled PIONEER EDITORS PLAYED IMPORTANT ROLE IN IOWA With nothing more than an old font of type, a hand press, partisan zeal and irrepressible confidence, the early printers in Iowa boldly assumed the position of oracles and purveyors of news. They wrote vigorous editorials, clipped items from other papers, mentioned a few local happenings, copied stories and poems from current books and magazines, gathered advertisements, and begged for subscriptions. In most instances the glowing prospects soon faded. Weeks when no paper appeared became more frequent. Hope flickered and sometimes went out. But the editor only gathered up his meager equipment, moved to another town, and began all over again. The story of some of the old in the project last year completed it. est Iowa newspapers is told by Velma Of the total of 4.986 calves started on 1 Critz Stout in the April number of feed. 4,255 were carried through to the The Palimpsest. close of the club year. | During the first five years of the Total selling value of the 4.255 history of journalism in Iowa, eight calves was $453,029.85, as compared j newspapers were established.

The calves' average weight at the beginning was 413.9 pounds and cost 6'i, cents per pound, making the average cost per head $27.28. The calves, fed an average of 266 days, made an average daily gain of 1.98 pounds per head, about the same gain per head as made in 1934. Feed cost per 100 pounds gain was $9.70 in 1935 as compared with $6.14 in 1934. This increased the total cost per head from $30.84 in 1934 to $51.03 last year. In 1934. the members had an individual investment charge plus feeding cost of $54.75 as compared with $78.81 in 1935. The selling price per head for 1934 was $75.15 as compared with $106.47 for 1935. The net profit, excluding labor and equipment charges, was $28.16 per head in 1935 as compared Willi $20,40 in 1934. The profit to members, however was even greater than the $28.16 indicates, inasmuch as the majority of the members fed corn raised on their own farms and entered it in their record books at a higher price per bushel than they had done in previous years, says Mr. Quist. Clay county led in membership with 179 members enrolled. Marshall, Benton and Cerro Gordo counties all had more than 75 members enrolled. About 90 per cent of the members completing the project exhibited stock at one or more of the 244 shows and fairs conducted during the year. The fairs ranged from one-day local shows to the International Livestock Exposition. For the sake of those people who pay no visible taxes, the Guaranty Trust Company has driven the concealed taxes out into the open for all to see, says the Christian Science Monitor, The typical family of four with a $2500 annual income, though it pays no federal or state income taxes, still pays $183 a year for the upkeep of government, the company asserts. Many tax experts have urged a system wherein each citizen will pay whatever he has to pay in the form of visible and direct taxes, rather than in indirect and invisible taxes. The theory is that if each person knew the cost to himself of an added government service, such services would be more cautiously voted Sell it througli a Herald Want Adlj peared at Montrose on June 28, 1837. The third newspaper appeared at Burlington, the fourth at Fort Madison, the fifth at Davenport, the sixth at Burlington, and the seventh and eighth at Bloomington (Muscatine.) Six of them still survived at the beginning of 1841. The second half of the territorial decade witnessed the establishment of newspapers at Iowa City, Keosauqua, and Keokuk; another attempt at Fort Madison; and the rise of competitors in the other towns. In the yellowing pages of these old papers the story of the creation of the Commonwealth of Iowa can be traced; It is doubtful if any other men played a more conspicuous part in the life of the territory than the pioneer journalists.

When built in 1870, the lighthouse was a mile from the water's edge, but now the ocean is less than 100 feet from the tower's base. A new steel tower will be built another mile inland, according to present plans. SAW A WONDERFUL VISION VANISH INTO JUST THIN AIR Sales Books At less cost than you have ever bought them! I had a vision of a town in which everyone was loyal; where everyone insisted that his town was the best town on earth; where everyone boosted and no one knocked; where everyone bought everything at home, and even merchants bought of each other and merchants' wives and daughters were not seen in neighboring cities buying at department stores; where the catalog houses had ceased to send catalogs because no one sent in orders from there; where the farmers for; miles around were ready to swear al-, legiance; where business was always good, taxes were not too high and the bread trucks and meat trucks didn't crowd the local residents off the streets; where local merchants would not sell an outside product that could be made at home. And an ancient figure said to me, "Do you recognize this town?" and I said, "No, father, I don't recognize the town." And he said, "Of course you don't, because no such town exists, but it might have been your town."—"On the.Air" in the Independence Conservative.
