PAGE EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA I See It by C. W. D. Some of the most reassuring words heard in the past week were spoken by Representative H. O. Talle of Decorah speaking to the Postville Commercial Club. In telling of portions of his conversation with General Clay. V. S. commander in Berlin, he slated that Clay was of the opinion that war with Russia is not as near as many Americans have been led to believe by newspaper and radio reports. The general, as reported by Mr. Talle. seemed to believe that Russia would go to all ends short of war but that the Communists at present were not prepared to enter any major conflict. These reassuring words coming from a man who is well acquainted with the intelligence reports regarding Russia and her military strength, acted as soothing balm on a few jittery nerves. However. Mr. Talle reported the general to be of the opinion that we must maintain our position in Berlin and refuse to back down one more step. It is still beyond question a tense situation and a spark could go astray causing the unexpected. • « a • * England has socialized medicine.

Having just finished looking at some of the modem realistic art shown in Life magazine, it was hard to comprehend how scenes of such natural beauty might look to the realist"* eye and especially how it might look on canvas in his finished work.

SERVICE Dewey and Wilson The Council Bluffs Nonpareil in an editorial entitled, "If Gillette Should Be Elected," calls to the attention of the Republicans of of Iowa the inconsistency of voting for Governor Dewey, for president, and not supporting Senator George A. Wilson, of Iowa, for U. S. Senator. "Former Senator Guy Gillette is making a persistent effort to be elected United States Senator this fall," the Nonpareil editorial states. "It does not seem to have occurred to many Republicans in Iowa what Gillette's election might do to Dewey. "It could wreck the entire Republican program and make Dewey practically helpless in the White House. "At the present time there are 51 Republicans and 45 Democrats in the Senate. The Democrats need to gain only four seats to gain control. "The election of a Democratic senator in Iowa might assure a Democratic majority in the senate. Then what would happen? "The Democrats would elect a president pro-tempore to preside in the absence of the vice president. Much more important they would control all of the committees. The chairmen would be Democrats. "Thomas, of Oklahoma, would be chairman of the committee on agriculture" the Nonpareil points out. If Senator Wilson is elected he will undoubtedly receive this chairmanship, so important to the farmers of Iowa. The Nonpareil editorial continues: "McKellar, of Tennessee, would be chairman of the committee on appropriations. Tj'dings, of Maryland, would be chairman of the committee on armed services. Wagner, of New York, is ill, so Maybank, of North Carolina, would preside over the currency and banking committee. George, of Georgia, would be chairman of the committee on finance, Thomas, of Utah, would be chairman of the labor committee. McMahon, of Connecticut, would be chairman of the committee on rules. Every committee would be headed by a Democrat who would determina the measures permitted to come up for consideration. "How far do you think Dewey would get with every senate committee dominated by Democrats?" the editorial asks. "Yet this may happen if Guy Gillette is elected Senator from Iowa," the Nonpareil warns. In conclusion the editorial states: "The only thing for every Republican, and every Iowan who wants a real change in Washington to do, is to vote for George Wilson for United States Senator." Wilson Aids Sportsmen Iowa sportsmen and others who are keenly interested in the obvious relationship between wildlife conservation and the long range agricultural program will be interested in an article in the July 1948 edition of Sports Afield. This publication calls attention to Senator Wilson's active part as co-sponsor of the long range farm program known as S-2318 and calls attention particularly to Senator Wilson's amendment de­ signed to include wildlife conservation to the agricultural program. Sports Afield says: "Senator George Wilson (R. Iowa) co-sponsor of the original bill S-2318, and a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, took action to include wildlfe conservation in the long range farm program. "Senator Wilson offered n scries of amendments which would encourage and aid farmers and landowners to cooperate with the state and federal agencies in restoring and conserving wildlife habitat on their land. "Senator Wilson declared: 'Unless constructive action is taken to preserve the wildlife of the United States we may some day discover that it has vanished from the scene. Pheasants, quail, grouse and other species of wildlife must have sufficient cover in which to rear their young. By a cooperative and co-ordinated program the farmer will, under my amendments, be aided in replenishing habitat for this natural resource of our .country.' " Senator Wilson's amendments were accepted in their entirety by the Senator Agriculture commit- 1 J tee and became a part of the bill) || which the Senate passed. In the | g late hours of the session a House- • ] Senate conference committee temporarily dropped the amendments in an eleventh hour rush to get an agricultural bill passed. They will come up again during the next session and will be adopted if Senator Wilson is re-elected. the deep yellow pigment of their skin, shanks and beaks.' Poor quality birds show less color, and those that may carry some infection usually have little color. The plumage of poor birds may be dull in color and their weathering may not be complete. Pullets selected for housing in the lightweight breeds, which includes Leghorns, should weigh 3 pounds or more. Barred Plymouth Rocks, White Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, New Hampshires, or Crossbreds thoi weigh at least five pounds, quite says, Pullets selected should \« uniform size and develop, Only those that are laying sim be housed together.

INVEST SAFELY Need To Cull Pullets Before Housing Them An all-pullet flock doesn't necessarily mean all are layers. Some pullets may be loafers too. says Prof. Robert Penquite of the Poultry • Husbandry Department at Iowa State College. By getting the loafers out of the way there will be more space for good pullets. Penquite says that Leghorns need not less than three square feet of floor space and heavier breeds not less than four square feet. In choosing pullets for the laying flock, select the ones that are healthy, full-fleshed, large, heavy, deeply pigmented and sexually mature. The faces, combs and wattles" of the pullets kept should be fully developed and bright red in color. The pullets should be healthy. This can be determined by the bright, clear appearance of their face, the smooth, well-finished eyes, the red color of head and condition of their plumage, and This Bank provides a safe place to invest surplus funds and protect valuables . . . those in need of ready cash come to this Bank for assistance.
