PAGE EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE TTRRALD. POSTVILLE, IOWA._ THURSDAY, JUNE 4, Mat Kept Marriage Secret For Almost A Year That a woman cnn keep a secret was very much in evidence in Postville Inst Saturday morning when a number of tile friends of Miss Teresa Naso. who had been a very capable music teacher in the Postville schools received cards announcing her marriage nearly a year ago. The Cedar Rapids Gazette of last Sunday contained the following in its Marion department concerning the event: "Mrs. Pauline Naso, 907 Eleventh street north, is announcing the marriage of her daughter, Teresa Pauline, to Peter Meci, son of Frank Meci, 1409 Second avenue SE, Cedar Rapids, .which took place August 5, 1935, in New York City. The couple were attended by Mr. and Mrs. Peter Cardinals of Bronx, N. Y. cousins of Mi - . Meci. "The bride was graduated from Marion high school with the class of 1928 and in 1933 Coe College, where she specialized in music. She was affiliated with Mu Phi Epsilon. national honorary music fraternity, and Chi Delta social club." For' the last two years she has been supervisor of vocal music in the schools at Postville. "The bridegroom was graduated from a Cedar Rapids high school after which he received his liberal arts degree at the University of Iowa. He also had one year of law at the University of Iowa and. one year at Brooklyn college, Brooklyn, N. Y. He is a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, Mr. Meci is a visitor for the linn county relief office in Cedar Rapids. "Mr. and Mrs. Meci left Friday for a two weeks fishing trip in the Lake Vermillion region in northern Minnesota. They will be at home after June 14 in the Pauline Naso apartments, 907 Eleventh street, Marion." The Herald joins with local friends in extending Mr. and Mrs. Meci heartiest congratulations and well wishes. 4-H Rally Day Now Set For Next Tuesday The Farm Bureau office recently received the information from the 4-H extension department requesting that our county 4-H Rally Day be changed from Thursday, June 11, to Tuesday, June 9th. Therefore, in complying with this request this change in schedule has been made and this big 4-H occasion will be held at the Waukon Opera House on Tuesday, June 9th. This will be an all-day meeting starting at 9 a. m. It will be necessary to start promptly at this hour on account of the full day's program planned. The registration committee should be on hand at 9 a. m. to record the attendance of members, parents and guests for each club. The results of this registration from the various groups will later determine the club group winning the awards and other prizes offered in the attendance contest The Farm Bureau has arranged for Miss Zaneta Eager to be present and assist with the day's activities. The day's program as carried in last week's publicity will be carried out, included a basket lunch at. the noon hour. Everybody welcome. Outdoor Rambles (By Arthur J. Pains) Back in "school days" we learned that as a rule the birds of the tropics are more brilliant in color than those with us in temperate zones. It was kind of Nature to provide us with many exceptions, most notable of which is probably the Scarlet Tariager. Large enough to be noticed, and enough of a songster to attract attention, we find him quite often along or near streams in this part of the state, especially along the Mississippi. Even though he passes from tree to tree with dense foliage, his brilliant red and coal black reveal him to us. When we mention these colors we are speaking of the male only. The female is not brilliant in color, although beautiful upon close observa tion. Her color is rather a harmonious combination of the green and the shade of the trees. We often marvel at the great difference in the colors of male and female of so many of our birds. The general rule is that the male is more brilliant and the female more sombre in plumage. There are two theories; or, shall we say, reasons, for this difference in the sexes. One is that the female does the incubating of the eggs in most instances, and as this requires the bird to stay quite closely on the nest, even when enemies come near, it is essential that the colors of the female be subdued, so that she does not attract too much attention. The re suit of this has been that the more modestly colored females have survived and thus has then developed the more modest color of the female. This is known as "protective coloration" The other theory or reason is that the more brilliant males are more attractive for the females. When females had opportunity to select they selected the more brilliant of color. If there was a contest among females for the males, the more brilliant col ored males were more likely to be' mated with the strongest females. This brought about a condition where the more brilliant colored males were the more likely to be the paternal parents of the young. Thus there was a tendency for the males of the spe cies to become more brilliant in color. This is known as "selective coloration." There is considerable evidence that both of these rules have been in ope ration to bring about difference in col ors of the sexes of the same species. The farther we follow this in nature, the more we marvel and the more we wonder, and as we marvel and wonder, we become more and more confirmed in the belief that the Power that rules is Omnipotent and Om niscient, all powerful and all wise. Mullaney and Stewart Win in Senate Races In the race for State Senator T. W. Mullaney won the democratic nomination in the fortieth district, while Paul P. Stewart easily won the republican nomination for the same office. The vote in the two counties comprising this district was as follows: Democratic Ticket Tom Mullaney— Allamakee County _ 917 Fayette County 526 George Holmes— Allamakee County _ 434 Fayette County _ 735 (Majority for T. W. Mullaney—274.) Republican Ticket Paul P. Stewart- Allamakee County 1175 Fayette County _ „ _...1749 F. G. Lee- Allamakee County 1024 Fayette County 1478 (Majority for Paul P. Stewart—422.) "What is the thirteenth amendment to the constitution?" That is the question asked by a local teacher recently. The reply she got was: "It is an amendment to the United States constitution allowing Republicans to vote." So the Republicans vote this fall. The situation in the Rhineland calls to mind the fact that there is a border 3,000 miles long between this country and Canada that doesn't have an armed soldier or a fort for the entire length of it , says the Whittemore Champion. It has never been necessary to have a treaty to provide that this situation continue. The park commissioners are on the "war path," says the Sumner Gazette, and are dangling dire consequences over four boys who entered the park one night recently, tore the legs from under one of the picnic tables, broke them up and proceeded to build a fire, over which they roasted weiners.

During this two weeks every effort will be made by those in charge of the mem bership drive to visit every home in every township. Organized agriculture is extremely essential in holding the gains already made and putting a sane and intelligent program of activity for perma nent stability in the future of this agricultural industry. During the two weeks work the lo cal organization will have the assist ance of Mr. Mathews and Mr. Hamilton, of the Farm Bureau Federation. Plans are outlined calling for one day's work in each township. The Farm Bureau organization holds an important place in the betterment of agriculture. It has come down through the years since its organization with an enviable record of achievement and will continue to follow, in the future as it has done in the past, putting forth all its efforts for an instructive program of activities with the primary thought of reaching the objectives of a more stabilized and satisfactory price for agricultural products and a complete harmony of feeling between all the people of an agricultural section- regardless of whether they live in the country or in town. The experience of the past few years has brought keenly to the attention of business of any nature the necessity of a program for the safeguarding and promoting of agricultural interests and there should be no doubt in anyone's mind of the splendid work which the Farm' Bureau is accomplishing through its many different phases of projects and program work which is sponsored throughout the county, state and nation. Experiences of recent years are still vivid in our memories and the merits and results to be achieved through organization is plainly evident to all concerned. The officers and directors of the local County Farm Bureau and the various committees in charge are looking forward to a record membership during the work of the next two weeks.

He then boarded up eleven of the nineteen fire stations. To meet the tax situation, tax gatherers are making house to house calls endeavoring to collect by personal solicitation the back taxes.

For Prevention of War The other day I signed tho discharge petition aimed at the consideration of the resolution of Congressman Ludlow of Indiana. The resolution is for an amendment to the United States Constitution providing for a popular vote before this nation could go into war, «except in cases of actuaV invasion. It provides also for commandeering all munitions plants and other plants used for making war ma­ terial—nt the outbreak of war. That is aimed nt war profiteering. I am not entirely convinced of the wisdom of the resolution, but I am sympathetic with its purpose. Would the people be less inclined to vote for war than Congress? Probably a popular vote would have kept us out of the War of 1812 and the Mexican War. Perhaps it would have kept us out of (he Civil War, but if it had, the country would have been divided into two republics. I doubt that a popular vote would have kept us out of the Spanish War or the World War, but I suppose some of your readers will disagree to that. However, it would be a good thing, I believe, to get the Ludlow resolution up for debate. It would be a wholesome thing for the American people to turn their very thoughtful attention to the subject of war, past and future. REPUBLICAN TICKET United States Senator- Smith W.

I asked if he knew who they were and he said he didn't, "but the woman must have been his wife from the way he was talking to her." . Some Signs of Economy The House cut seventy-five million off the Bureau of tho Budget's estimate for relief. Then last week, after spirited debate, the House defeated two amendments to the Interior appropriations bill that would have cost about sixty millions next year and hundreds of millions more in years to come. They were amendments providing money for about a dozen huge irrigation projects, which, not only would involve the cost I've mentioned, but they would bring into use millions of acres of land at a time when we have already too much crop land. I was glad to have a small part in these big economies. They appear to me to be hopeful signs, (But the fact still remains that the cost of wars, past and future, is what we'll have to cut if we are going to get back to a reasonable expenditure of the public funds.) "The Senate Is In Session" When the senate is in session, the American flag flies over the north wing of the Capitol, where the Senate meets. When the House is in session, the (lag flies over the south wing, where it meets. Frequently people pass the Capitol at night, see the flag flying over the Senate wing, and exclaim. "Oh, the Senate is having a night session." Such is not the fact. The Senate "recesses" from day to day, so it is technically "in session" nearly all the time. I went by the; Capitol Sunday evening and the Senate flag w.'s flying. It made a beautiful sight against the background of the granite building, but no senator was inside the Capitol. President's Press Conferences , President Roosevelt's press conferences have never had their like in our history. Twice a week the President admits the press correspondents and lays himself open to all their questions. No other president has ever done this. President Hoover met with the press and to him questions had to be submitted in writing in advance. Then he answered those he chose to answer. But President Roosevelt undertakes to answer on the spur of the moment any question any correspondent hurls at him. Writers like Frank Kent and Mark Sullivan, who seem to have a personal hatred for the President, attend these conferences and are treated just as considerately as the others. "How long do these conferences last?" I asked one of the correspondents. "Until we run out of questions," he answered, "sometimes 20 minutes, sometimes an hour and a half. The President never shuts them off." SCHOOL NEWS?

A New York District Vito Marcantonio, a Republican congressman representing an east side district in New York City, told me that his district is less than one-half mile square. In other words, it occupies less than 180 acres of land. The population of the district (of the 160 acres) in 1930 was 150,523. Marcantonio flies to New York City every Friday evening, spends all of Saturday and most of Sunday conferring with his constituents, and flies back Monday morning in time lor the convening of Congress. The round-trip by airplane costs him something more than $21 and the time consumed is about five hours for both ways. Income Taxes A friend has asked me to state the facts regarding salaries and income taxes to correct some misinformation. The salaries of congressmen and all other federal government officials are subject to the federal income taxes, just exactly as any other salaries. Fraternally yours, FRED BIERMANN.
