PAGE EIGHT. Hlargmal tlotes 1 Bn BILL A NEW ORDINANCE Since last Thursday a new ordinance is in effect here in Postville which establishes a safety zone at the street crossings near the school house with stop signs at certain hours of the day in which school is in session. This action was made necessary because of the danger to children from speeding cars on this thoroughfare and the town's action in establishing the safety zone is in complete accord with the state highway commission. The first few days the ordinance'has been in effect and the signs in place, shows that the most violations are committed by local car drivers who fail to appreciate the significance of the stop sign. The town officials mean to enforce tins ordinance and violators will be prosecuted. So when you drive past the school house between the hours of 8:30 a. m. and 9:15 a. m.. 11:45 a. m. to 1:15 p. m., or from 3:45 to 4:15 p. m„ you will find stop signs in place and they mean just what they say: STOP! Your co-operation will assure the safety of Postville's children going to and from school. • • * • WPA FUNDS FOR CEMETERIES A friend of ours writes in to tell us that he would like to see some of the WPA money made available for improving cemeteries. He says that throughout the country there are thousands of large and small cemeteries, which for want of funds are grossly neglected and in time will be unrecognizable. This man thinks that our own Congressman Biermann, friend of the outdoors, lover of nature and nature's handiwork, might be able to tip off someone connected with WPA that cemetery improvement and restoration would be a worthy program to carry out to put idle men, in rural sections especially, to work. Throughout the land there are many hurial grounds where headstones are hidden by weeds, brush and uncon trolled growth of vegetation. Tombstones are crumbling and topple over. Trees need the attention of pruners, ragged fences should be repaired or replaced. This man has offered a good suggestion and one worthy of consideration. What finer tribute could be paid the pioneers, many of whose remains rest in these forgotten cemeteries, than a nation wide program to make every burial ground a beauty spot? * * * * LANDSCAPING LOCAL CEMETERY Speaking of cemeteries, reminds us that the Postville Cemetery Association has entered upon a program of landscaping at their burial ground which should in time make that a real beauty spot. The official board, according to Sec retary A. J. Phillips, has this year set out some new shrubs and trees and will add to this each year to the ex tent that their finances will permit. Mr. Phillips states that those owing the cemetery association will be lending their aid to the landscaping pro gram if they will remit either to him or the treasurer any amount they are owing and thus help the work along. • • * » PAVING FOR PERMANENCY. The past winter put the American highway system, especially in the nor them states, to the severest test it has ever endured, says the Detroit News. There were temperatures far below zero. There were floods that covered sections of road many feet deep. When the ground thawed out and the floods subsided, the repair gangs went to work, and this is what they found: Frost had buckled the macadam roads in many places; frost and flood had done severe damage to brick roads: neither frost nor flood had the slightest effect on deep-foun- daiiohed concrete roads. Here in Allamakee, highway No. 51 is to be given a black-top surfacing on the gap remaining unpaved and bids are to be received next week. It would be far better to buy concrete to the amount of money available for this project and then add to the more lasting paving from year to year as funds become available until all of the road is paved, than to gamble on the proposed temporary surfacing. Outdoor Rambles (By Arthur J. Palas) The Misses Gladys and Mabel Ewing and Neva Waters have their birthday anniversaries all about the same time, and hence it was that the three events were duly celebrated last Sunday down at the Old Stone House, where they had a most elaborate dinner and a perfectly delightful social season. Those present to help them celebrate were Mr. and Mrs. Horace Dennison of Waterloo, Horace Gordanier, Howard, Bernice, Opal, Murtis and Violet Gordanier; Paul Waters, Marilyn Thomson, Charleen and Vivian Schlee. Cloy Meier of the D-X Oil Station met with a rather sore accident at the station last Friday while engaged in taking the top off a steel barrel, using a hammer and chisel to perform the job. In some way he made a misslick in his activities, with the result that he socked the chisel into one of his fingers, which has not only been mighty inconvenient in waiting on customers but quite sore as well. "Joy! jollity! jubilee! Wirblety-warblo, happy me! Rest and dream, O tired mortal; See! I push a secret portal, And let in a shining throng, Piping Nature's wander song." • * • • Thus wrote Doctor LeRoy Titus Weeks in his "Ode to the Bobolink." Dr. Weeks was one of our great Nature poets, an Episcopal rector, for a time located at Estherville, Iowa, and later teaching at Tabor College, where he died about eight years ago. Above quotation are the words that come from the throat of the bird as heard by the tired worker as he rests in the meadow during the noon hour. Then the poet continues: • * • • "Pinklety-pankletyrpunkle-pinkle, So his broken revels sprinkle O'er me till I catch the sweetness Of the season's rich completeness, Till my soul escapes its keeper, Leaves the earth and soars to deeper Vasts of light, by wing unaided, Where bird and earth are hushed and faded." » » * 9 Dr. Weeks caught the spirit of the song of this bird so completely, that I cannot attempt to describe it. Since the 4th of May it has been our joy to hear this songster over the meadow in our back yard. Whether it be at breakfast, lunch or dinner: • • • • "Comes the symphony supernal,' A thrill of sweet emancipation! A flash of blessed transfiguration!" • • • * The bird will give his song at times from the top of fence post, or more likely, swinging on weed-reed of last year's growth; but seems to reach that "completeness' of which Dr. Weeks speaks, when hovering on wing about twenty feet in the air over the meadow in a sort of stationary flight, where below him his drab colored mate is building a cradle in the reeds. Students To Visit Ames For Veishea This Week A group of Home Ec. girls under the instruction of Miss Lynum are planning a trip to Ames on Thursday. Friday and Saturday, May 14, 15 and 16, to attend the seventh annual Vei­ shea at Iowa State College. The girls taking part in the discussion groups are: Related Art—Eileen Mork, Vivian Schlee, Viola Marie Joyce and Gladys Ewing. Food and Nutrition—Bernice Gordanier, Opal Larson, Helen Jacobia, Beverly Brandt and Eileen Chamberlain. Child Development—Neva Waters and Marjorie McGuire. Mr. Collins, Howard Voelker and Paul Harris are also attending the conference, the latter being entered in the form speaking contest. PARK BENCHES AND TABLES ARE TO BE REPAINTED SOON The park benches and picnic tables were replaced in Postville's City Park last week, and as they were looking rather shabby as a result of their service to the public and the action of the elements, we ventured to speak to Mayor Dietsch about it on Monday, and he informed us: "Just you wait a little and see; they will all be repainted and in the not distant future. His honor also informed us that the color scheme of these park conveniences would doubtless be changed this season, as the city has a bit of gold-hued paint left that will possibly be used to decorate them. Keith Brooks and his friend, Ralph Gordon, both of Des Moines, were enjoying a little vacation visit in Postville from last Thursday until Sunday in the home of the former's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Brooks, who saw to it that the boys were properly shown through some of the natural beauty spots in the "Switzerland of Iowa," taking them on a trip through the Yellow River valley, over to Lansing and New Albin and up to the Minnesota state line, and also over highway 13 down through Marquette and McGregor, and they returned to their labors highly pleased with their visit to northeast Iowa. Mr. and Mrs. Ira Smith of this city entertained a company of relatives at their home on Mother's Day complimentary to the latter's mother, Mrs. Evan Swenspn, also of this city. A fine feast was prepared and heartily enjoyed by all and the afternoon spent in a joyous social season. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Art Swenson, Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Davenport, Hall Swenson, Forrest Swenson and Miss Trumbell. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. B. Welzel had a real Mother's Day celebration at their home in this city on Sunday, occasioned by the homecoming of all then- children and their families. The day was spent happily at feasting and in a social way. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Earl Gilster and family of McGregor. Mr, and Mrs. Roy Welzel and family of Castalia, Paul and Harlan Welzel, and their neighbor, Henry Schroeder, as an especial guest. Between four and five thousand postmasters are still republicans, says the West Union Union. For that matter, they're the stillest of all republicans. THURSDAY, MAY Ml JUDGE HUBERT UTTERBACK born in a log cabin in Keokuk county 56 years ago. Democratic candidate for United States Senator. Now serving as congressman from the sixth Iowa district. Was former Iowa Supreme Court Justice, being elected by a majority of 95,000 votes. Postville Folks Go Eating on Sunday, Mother's Day Postville folks have for years had the reputation of being good feeders, and they also are aware of the fact that the best place to get a big feed at a little price is when the church ladies serve the grub. Well, on Sunday last, which was Mother's Day, two of the Lutheran congregations of this locality, at Castalia and Luana, both served special dinners and the way our people flocked to them was beautiful to behold, and all of them came back home with words of praise for the splendid meals they had been permitted to enjoy as a result of the activities of the Ladies' Aid Societies activities at these two churches. We don't know as we can give you the names of all our people who partook of these dinners, but we can tell you of a few of them at least as follows: These Went To Luana Dr. and Mrs. M. E. Kallman and family, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. H. Schultz, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Schultz, Mr. and Mrs. Eaton Waters, Mr. and Mrs. Cloy Waters, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Behrens, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hoth, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Stone and Catherine, Mr. and Mrs. Bert E. Tuttle, Mrs. Geo. Waters, Mr. and Mrs. Karl Erb and family, Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Meyer and family, Miss Matilda Huber, Mrs. Ella Schultz, J. T. Humphrey, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Zieman, Mr. and Mrs. Willard Schutte, Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Harrington, Mr. and Mrs. Mort Deering, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Schultz. And These To Castalia Mr. and Mrs. Helmie Meyer and family, Mr. and Mrs. Will Baltz, Mr. and Mrs. Elzer Schierholz, Mr. and Mrs. Will Everman, Mr, and Mrs. Lee Folsom, Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Sander and Helen, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Schutte and Paul, Mr. and Mrs. Gus Dietsch, Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Douglass and family, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Hill and Louis Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Ed Poesch and family, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. J. Schroeder, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Hein, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Eberling and family, Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Meier, Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Beucher, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Samek, Mr. and Mrs. Ed F. Schroeder and family, Mr. and Mrs. L. C.

Sebastian and family, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Steele. Everybody has his hobby for breaking the monotony of the every day drag. Some enjoy baseball, some golf, some go fishing and others go gunning, but none of that kind of monkey business hits the spot with Elmer Kugel of this city, he wants a game with some thrills in it. Hence it was that on Sunday last he wandered down into the Yellow River country and went chasing over the rocky bluffs in the vicinity of the Lester Smith farm home hunting for rattlesnakes. It was not an ideal day for snakes, because it was cloudy and rainy, nevertheless Elmer got one thrill and captured a rattler that carried five rattles and a button. Mr. and Mrs. Warren Harrington were called to Elgin Tuesday evening by an accident that befell his mother, Mrs. C. J. Harrington. She was standing on a step ladder holding a pan of water up for her husband, who was on a taller ladder washing the outside of the windows at their home. Of a sudden the ladder on which Mrs. Harrington was standing tipped over and threw her to the ground with considerable force, she striking oh the ground with sufficient force to fracture her left arm a few inches below the shoulder. Charley Fay of McGregor was a Postville visitor Tuesday, being here to transact business. Charley is again a candidate for county supervisor in Clayton and has three opponents on his party ticket at the primaries. But his friends tell him that this will not prevent his nomination as he has done a good job in the county's affairs and they want him Teturned for another term. Biermann's Letter. (Continued from Page One) So those who voted "aye" declared for taking the income tax for all of Iowa for more than eight years and putting it into one ship. That isn't all. Major General Mitchell, who was court martiallcd a half dozen years ago for talking too violently in favor of airplanes as against other kinds of armament, said that the auxiliary craft that have to attend a capital ship cost another fifty million, so the total cost involved in providing one capital ship is more than 100 million dollars. Of course, I voted against the capital ships. Admiral Sims, who commanded our naval forces in European waters in the World War, said that, in case of another war, we should run our battleships up the Mississippi river as far as possible to get them out of harm's way, I wish the American people could be made to realize the enormity of our war expenditures. For the next fiscal year, the cost of past and future wars to the United States treasury, according to official figures I put into the Record, will not be less than $4,226,000,000, and they are very likely to closely approach five billion dollars for that single year. What point is there to trying to reduce governmental expenditures until we can cut deeply into that item? Frazler-Lemke Bill Up For Vote Tho necessary 218 signatures to bring the Fraizer-Lemke bill up for a vote have been secured. The vote may have been taken before this letter is in print. I signed the petition to bring the bill up because I believed that the interest in the bill is so great that its proponents had the right to a debate and a vote on it. President Roosevelt is against the measure and that has delayed the signatures to the petition. Members generally dislike to vote on it, because it "puts them on the spot." Their votes will probably determine the election fates of many members. Few members like such a vote, especially if their consciences tell them to vote one way and their election prospects tell them to vote the other way. Step In the Right Direction It was with pleasure that I voted for a resolution for the appointment of a committee of the house to study the overlapping of departments, bureaus and governmental agencies with the view to consolidating their activities, eliminating waste and cutting down expenses. In recent years there has been a great enlargement of governmental agencies. It has gone on for years. The emergency has made some of it unavoidable. The house committee will co-operate with committees appointed by the President and by the senate to find how the enlargements can be con traded. Some agencies have been wiped out or cut down recently, but, in my opinion, a wholesale job of it ought to be done in the near future "A government of the people can never be either economical or efficient," I was told years ago. But it should be our purpose to minimize waste and inefficiency as much as possible. He Wants Revenge A man in this city bought a new car which turned out differently than he had expected. He went to the dealer and he wouldn't make the adjustment the buyer demanded. So the buyer painted over his car in huge yellow letters "I bought a and got a lemon." Everybody within a block sees the words and comments on them. Of course, it does leave a bad impression of the car named. The result has been so bad that the automobile company has started legal proceedings against the revengeful buyer. Fraternally yours, FRED BIERMANN. (Continued from Pago One) bye.

Postville 4—Delhi 7 Postville was defeated by Delhi in the first round of the district tournament held at Fayette last week-end by a score of 7 to 4 in a game in which many errors were committed. The lead changed hands many times throughout the game and the fitjal score was not decided until a Delhi man cracked out a fluke home run with two mates on bases to decide the fray. Kamp started the game for Postville but was relieved by Kneeskern in the fifth inning because of a sore arm. Postville will play Luana on the home diamond Thursday, and Clermont there on Friday. Band and Orchestra Students May Rent or Buy Instruments An intensive campaign has been started to interest beginners in all phases of instrumental music in the Postville Band and Orchestra. A. J. Bender, official representative of the Renier Music Co., Dubuque, is in the community assisting Mr. Lowell in the promotion of the campaign. A new system of rental is being presented, whereby a pupil pays rent on an instrument until all concerned are sure that satisfactory progress is being made. At that time the rental fee may be applied toward the purchase price of the instrument If tho pupil does not show an aptitude toward music the instrument may be returned at no further cost. In this manner a parent can at a very reasonable cost find out whether or not his child is fitted for musical training. The instruction will be furnished free and will be continued throughout the summer. The pupil is required to furnish an instrument and an instrument book. Anyone wishing additional information may call Mr. Lowell. Honor Roll A large congregation was in attendance at the Community Presbyterian church last Sunday morning to hear the special Mother's Day sermon by Rev. R. F. Galloway, in which he stated "The Godly mother is the outstanding bulwark of society." The special music in connection with this service was especially beautiful and appropriate to the occasion. The opening number, "Mother Machree," by the young people's choir, with Cathryn Harrington at the piano, was very prettily rendered as was also the solo by Mrs. Dillon Lowell, "Little Mother of Mine," she being accompanied by Cathryn Harrington on the piano and Mr. Lowell on the cornet. The closing number was a song by the choir, "That Wonderful Mother of Mine," with Mrs. Lowell playing the accompaniment. Monday morning of this week Louis Hangartner trucked a load of loose hay to town and he had it piled up plenty high. As Louis turned the corner at the Farmers Store for the purpose of weighing his load on the scales the hay lost its equilibrium and a good big hunk of it fell off the top and nearly buried Fred Hangartner's car which he had parked just around the corner at that point. It was a bit embarrassing, but Louis never said a word, but proceeded to pitch it back on again and pulled over to the scales which showed he had 300 pounds over two tons aboard, which was some load of its kind to transport with any degree of certainty that it would stay put.
