The survey of I. M. A. members showed that 70 per cent of those answering the questionnaire reported an increase in business during the January-June period this year compared with sales during the frist half of last year. Increases ranged from .4 per cent to 114 per cent. The average increase was 14.5 per cent. Nineteen per cent of the manufacturers reported a decline in business ranging from two to 50 per cent. The average drop was 13.8 per cent. Eleven per cent of those included in the survey reported no change in business between the two periods. Among th reasons cited for increased business were favorable economic climate, expectation of a good grain crop, expanded markets, good farm income in 1961 and better business conditions. New products and increased sales efforts . alo were mentioned. Nearly one-third of the compan- . les reporting a decline cited "giv- ernment spending" or the present administration's attitude toward business as the reason for the drop. Other reasons cited included in- creaed competitive activitity, change in buying habits of custcn mers, bad weather and business generally slow. "The general improvement in business during the first half of this year is very gratifying," said Harry D. Linn, executive vice- president of the IMA. "We need to do all we can to encourage continued improvement as a spur to the economy of the state." week. Receives special award MAYNARD — At the alumni, faculty and nursing service banquet at the Allen Memorial Hospital School' of Nursing, Waterloo,' Thursday, Aug., 24, .Virginia Hen f niges was presented brie of. the special awards for her outstanding, qualities during her three years of training. Egg industry plays An important part Don't underestimate Iowa's egg industry. It's an important part of the economy of the state, says Iowa State University Extension Poultryman Paul R. Walther. Iowa is second in egg production to California, producing about 24 percent fewer eggs than that state. Iowa had a lead in egg production for 30 years until California took the lead in 1959. The 80 thousand flocks in Iowa produce almost 5 billion eggs a year. If these eggs were loaded in 600 case carloads there would be a total of 23,100 cars. If these cars were to pass at a rate of one car per second It would take a total of 6.5 hours for them all to pass. Eight-five percent of Iowa's eggs go outside the state. Iowa produces one-third of New York's eggs, 27 percent of Qhicago's, 16 percent of Baltimore's, 15 percent of Detroit's, 13 percent of 'Philadelphia's and nine percent of Pittsburgh's egg supply. Iowa has six poultry breeding "farms, 300 hatcheries, 1,200 egg assemblers, and 23 egg breaking plants. Four and one third million hours are spent candling and handling eggs each year. Take-it-easy attitude A take-lt-easy attitude helps more than anything else to keep the family mealtime from becoming a problem time. No single vegetable is essential enough to justify an "eat or else" ultimatum, says Nancy Lysen, Iowa State University extension associate in human development and family relationships. Neither is the eating or leaving of food ever sufficient cause for bribery or "wild celebration." A relaxed, pleasant'atmosphere .is much more likely to result in a healthy appetite than a death-watch over' the child's plate.

The menu for the free smorgasbord will include: Potato salad, cold meats, cottage cheese, potato chips, cracker snacks, pop, milk, coffee, pork and beans, pickles, bread, cookies and ice cream. In order to inform everyone in the Fayette area of this gala event, the FAYETTE LEADER went to press one day early this week. Everyone in the Fayette shopping area is invited to attend the smorgasbord. The Super Valu advertisement appears on another page in this issue of the Leader. The monthly meeting of the Fay- cite Chamber of Commerce will be held at the Colegrove-Walker building on the Upper Iowa campus Thursday, August 30. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p. m.

Following the Chamber of Commerce meeting, at 8 p. m., the golf course meeting will be held, with reports on the number of signers who are interested in building the 18-hole course near Fayette. Plans are to also show a colored movie of championship golf.

Remember that children have oc- Study turkey grades And save more money A housewife-who takes the time to study turkey grades sometimes can save a considerable amount of money, Iowa State University Extension Turkey Specialist Wallace Ross says. He says that in some cases the turkey grade may misrepresent what the housewife Is actually getting. The three turkey grades, A, B and C, are determined by several methods. A turkey may fall into the B and C grades because of lack of fleshing, poor fat covering, conformation, cuts and tears, and discoloration such as flesh and skin bruises. If an otherwise A-grade has an aggregate of tears totaling 1 J inches, it falls into the B grade. Ross says that as far as wholesomeness and nutritional value are concerned there is no difference between this bird and an A-grade turkey. Another similar example would be a turkey with a crooked breastbone or a dent in the breastbone of more than one-fourth inch. This would not affect taste or nutritional value, but the turkey still would be downgraded. A B-grade turkey usually sells for 3-5 cents less per pound than an A-grade turkey. Ross says that not all B-grade turkeys are graded down because of cuts and tears or a crooked breastbone, nor that they are as eye-appealing as "A" Aurkeys. If a turkey is underfinlshed, the flavor may be affected. "But sometimes there is little difference between A and B grades, and the housewife who knows this difference can economize on the food Bedtime battles with Youngsters unnecessary Bedtime battles between parents and preschoolers need not be fought nightly. Instead, a leisurely, pleasant routine can preserve the peace, says Nancy Lysen, Iowa State University extension associate in human development and family relationships. You may not see the reason for the elaborate, and sometimes wearisome, bedtime rituals children often develop. But for a child, the ritual seems to be a kind of "magic" that helps him move from waking to sleeping. The same steps, followed in about the some way nightly, reassure him that everything is all right and will be the same when he wakes up. In time, a youngster changes and even abandons portions of his beloved routine on his own. But woe to the parent who tries to hurry up the process-he has a worse battle on his hands than before. A child clings to adults all the harder when deprived of his special supports that make "good nights" bearable. , The following pointers may make bedtime more peaceful: Never use bed as a punishment. ...Give your child a little of your time just before bedtime for quiet play or stories. .Warn him a few minutes before it's time for bed, then go with him to his room and help him settle down. ...Above all, let him know that you expect him to go to sleep.

Although the season opens Sept. 1, it gets really in gear around Sept 15 when the game habitat is better for hunting and the operators have had an opportunity to see how the birds react to the field. Pheasants, quail, chukar partridge and mallard ducks are among the game offered. They are pen-reared birds and all must be at least 12 weeks of age before the liberation date.
