PAGE TEN. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 89 , ^ As I See It by C. W. D. One of the best comments in the news last week was an English vomans explanation of why she had lived to celebrate her l(Hth birthday. Her explanation — "I never had a husband." • » • • I have heard several suggestions made recently on means of expanding the parking facilities in Postville to accomodate more cars in the central business district. One idea expressed was paving the parking on the south side of the Herald office from the main street to the alley and repeating the same procedure along the south parking of the Postville Lumber Company. This would provide parking space for approximately 20 to 25 more cars and would in addition relieve the street congestion at these corners during busy periods.. The fulfillment of this idea along with additional measures, would go a long way in solving our present day Sparking problem. A California newspaper commented on the recent egg throwing episode in the south by saying. "People who togg eggs at political speakers have no concept of fair play-ror the price of eggs." The large crowd in attendance at the Postville-Elgin football same last Friday night is additional evidence of what night football will produce as a drawing attraction. An estimated 700 were on hand to see the first game under lights at Elgin with Postville providing a sizeable audience.

Telephone No. 251 Postville, Iowa and Elgin, places all conference • Footb&U schools on a night schedule with the exception of the home team. Lights are not possible this year but should be placed on the "must list" for next fall. • • • • • , The hot breath of politics is churning along its way at top speed now with little apparent effect in producing wanner relations in the "cold war" being waged in Europe. Earl Abernethy tells of several interesting sights observed in Allamakee county during the time he was assisting County Assessor Alfred Hansmeier in the property revaluation program now underway. In one of the northern townships. Earl found a log house and outbuildings that had been built during the past ten years. There are other log homes in the areas of considerably older vintage but this new home of hand hewn timber seems almost unbelievable in our fast moving world today. Earl said the structure was well built and provided livable quarters for the family. Some pioneer history in the county is still being made. « • * • • The Postville baseball team ended play for the season last Sunday occupying a spot in the middle of the heap instead of the enviable top rating they enjoyed last pear. Regardless of the standing, the men are to bd commended for their determination, sportsmanship and willingness in providing good games for the fans to watch. The team was composed entirely of hometown men who received no remuneration whatever for their services. They played the game because they liked it and their efforts were not dependent on how much money each was to receive for a contest. A vote of thanks is due all the men who participated in • the games and provided a good team to watch on the field. • • • • Statisticans predict 58 million votes in the 1948 election, 10 million more than in 1944. » LOST WAY Donald Oltrogge, 10 year old Sumner youth, had quite a bicycle ride last week. Out to see the country-side, he lost his way and wound up in Fayette) On leaving Fayette, he got lost again and wound up in West Union. Back he pedaled to Fayette, where police questioned him and got word to his parents just in time to stop a mass search by 300 persons who had gathered at the Oltrogge home to hunt for the missing boy. (Continued from page 1) a one -yard loss. A short pass was completed, but a hard tackle caused a , fumble which Jack Meyer recovered. Schultz carried for 10, Meyer for five and Schultz for five. Then Schultz started, faked a pass, crossed the line of scrimmage, and cut back for 29 yards and another touchdown. The extra point failed. Postville 20. Elgin 0. The half ended as the kickoff was fumbled. The Pirates started from their 20 on the second half kickoff and marched eighty yards for another score. The march included a 22 and a 14 yard run by Mork and was ended by Schultz's' two yard gain to score. A pass for the extra , point failed. Postville 2G, Elgin' 0. / This finished the scoring for the game although Postville was on the Elgin one-foot line in the final quarter, when . a fumble spoiled their chance to score. The speed of Jack Schultz, the hard driving of Tennis Mork, and the blocking and defensive play of Wayne McNally" and John Hoth highlighted the Pirate's efforts throughout the game. The Pirates return to conference action this week when they play the Fayette team here at 3:00 Friday, October 1. The team's chances will probably be bolstered by the return of Eugene Rima, Don Heins and LeRoy Duwe, who have been sidelined with minor injuries. Hunt Safely This Year Cautions Arms Men With the hunting season getting well underway, the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute is again, bringing to the attention of all hunters the fact that sporting firearms, carelessly handled, are a great danger. In the interest of keeping shooting a safe sport, the following rules are recommended: 1. Treat every gun with the respect due a loaded gun. This is the cardinal rule of gun safety. 2. Carry only empty guns, taken down or contained in a case, into your automobile, camp, and home. 3. Always be sure that the barrel and action are clear of obstructions. 4. Always carry your gun so that you can control the direction of the muzzle, even if you stumble. 5. Be sure of your target before you pull the trigger. 6. Never point a gun at anything you do not want to shoot. , 7. Never leave your gun unattended unless you unload it first. 8. Never climb a tree or a fence with a loaded gun. 9. Never shoot at a flat, hard surface or the surface of water. 10. Do not mix gunpowder and alcohol. Left To Write By Bob Klauer.

TURNER INSURANCE AGENCY "Complete Insurance Service" Telephone 170-J Postville, Iowa More Oilmeal To Make Protein Feed Cheaper Protein livestock feeds will . be cheaper as soon as mills begin crushing the 1948 soybean and flaxseed crops, says Francis Kutish, Iowa State College farm eco nomist. Kutish points out that price de clines will start showing up next month. Mills are already quoting lower prices for soybean and lin seed oilmeal for October delivery. He thinks it would be wise for feeders to buy on a hand-to- mouth basis until new crop oil meal is available. A big soybean crop is certain. ARTIFICIAL At Hawarden, E. R.

SERVICE Wilson and Business Agriculture has always been known as Iowa's big business and rightfully so, but little business in Iowa is also big business. Taken singly these private ventures may seem small. But together their resources are huge and they are of tremendous importance to their communities and certainly to those who own them or who in anyway share in their benefits. By little business we mean the stores and shops along Main street as well as the comparatively small manufacturing plants and other types of local business concerns. U. S. Senator George A. Wilson has always had the steadfast support of this important business group as well as those who are in any way related to it or who con e'ern themselves with the welfare of small business. Until recently this important business group has lacked the or ganization that has always fought the battles of big business. This lack of organization has handi capped the small business man in efforts to make his voice heard in our legislative halls against the regimentation and harassing that has so sorely tried his soul. This is changing. His local association has helped greatly These in turn have been consolidated nationally into the Conference of American Small Business Organizations and this great voice from the Main Street of the nation now carries prestige and authority. The Conference now speaks for more than 600,000 small business concerns representing 260 different lines of industry. A letter written to Senator Wil son dated February 26, 1948, and signed by Fred A. Virkus, the chairman of the Conference, ex plains the senator's great following from Iowa's small town cities and small business folks. Mr. Virkus' letter to Senator Wilson says in part, "You, more than most of the other members of the Senate, have shown your active interest in the problems of small business and we are mind ful of your efforts to aid us in solving some of the problems small business is facing." The letter goes on to say. "We wish especially to commend you for your statesmanlike stand on what are regarded as controversial issues which certain other senators have straddled or evaded entirely." In closing his letter to Iowa's senior senator, Mr. Virkus said. "We wish to take this opportunity of expressing to you our deep appreciation your unfailing courtesy and friendliness. I wish it were possible for me. personally, to tell every business man throughout the state of Iowa it is my conviction that he should feel under obligation to you." Where Was Gillette? Former Senator Guy M. Gillette has on a number of oc casions cited his record during the time he was a member of the senate, from 1937 to 1944, as one of the reasons Iowa voters should return to the upper national house. But here's what the Con gressional Record reveals about Mr. Gillette. During the six years he served in the senate there were 819 roll calls. He was absent or failed to 1 vote on 237 of, them. In other words, during those six years, he was absent or didn't vote nearly one third of the time. In the 75th Congress, 1937 and 1938, there were 167 roll calls and' Gillette missed 47. In the 76th Congress, 1939 to 1940, the roll was called 263 times and 69 times he was among the missing. During the 77th Congress, 1941 and 1942, there were 195 and Gillette failed to respond 58 times and during the 78th Congress, 1943 to 1944, he was absent 63 times out of 194. Included in the roll calls on which Gillette failed to vote were 47 war defense measures. There were 45 on agricultural bills and amendments which were vital to Iowa farmers. There were 35 on appropriations, 13 on revenue measures, 26 on relief measures, 15 on orders of business, and 38 on foreign relations and miscellaneous matters. It appears ns if Mr. Gillette served a good part of his term in absentia. W. Harold Brcnton, who served! as. general chairman of the com.l rriittee on arrangements lor Gov. 1 ernor Dewey's opening campaign 1 address in Dei Moines September! 20, and State Chairman Whitney Gillilland expressed their thanks to county chairmen and vice chairmen, the committee members and newspapers for their contribution toward the success ot the rally.
