MOB TEN. THE P08TVILLE HERALD f POSTVILLE, IOWA WW>NTODAT. OCTOBta i As I See It by C. W. D. A datelined item from New Hampton reads as follows: A new lighting system for football and baseball at East Park will be installed as soon as necessary supplies arrive. New Hampton was the first Northeast Iowa conference team to have night football. The Fae Sline post of the American Legion here lias pledged $5.000 toward the new lighting system: board of education $2,500: Chamber of Commerce. $2,000 and Elksl $500. It seems as though where there is a will ihere is a way. ***** Dollar bills are no longer germ carriers. Not even a germ can live on a dollar any more. • • • • 9 The 1&4S Postville football team has done the •impossible" by defeating Elkader 6 to 0 and breaking that school's win streak at 40 games. It was a fine game to •watch and the entire Pirate team is to be commended for fine display of football talent. There were several breaks (or brakes) in the game that from a fans standpoint seemed almost too much to take, but the team on the field took it all in stride and concentrated their efforts on winning. It •will be a team long remembered in Postville football history, not so much from any individuals efforts as from a smooth working eleven man team. • • * * • Oh for the good old days when Uncle Sam lived •within his income and without most of mine. The Postville Kiwanis Club, in conjunction with Kiwanis Clubs throughout the country, is sponsoring a "get the vote out" program to go into effect next week prior to the general election November 2. The program is purely non-political in nature with em phasis being placed on getting ev eryone out to vote regardless of party affiliation. A pamphlet issued as a part of the program says in regard to the voting privilege: "Privilege? Of course, it's a privilege We think it is our DUTY too—duty to vote and pick the best men to watch over this great free land of ours. Ride the "elephant"' or the "donkey": vote "Republican" or '•Democratic." i: doesn't matter—WE MUST PICK THE BEST. And remember this: many people in other lands have XO choice. Why over in Russia there is ONLY ONE PARTY—no choice but one. but the Russian people have to vote or pay the penalty of prison or death. "SO LET'S KEEP DOING IT OUR WAY—listen to both sides of the story, make up our minds, ana then VOTE FOR THE BEST." » * » * » A Florida papers comment— "Certainly Russia has free speech— you can talk ycur head off."' ***** A local citizen who was in Madison last week at the time of the arrival of Candidate Truman on his special train, overheard a young boy who dashed up to the platform at the rear of the train yell in a shrill voice. "Harry, what do you think you can do in Washington." The boy was no doubt prompted by his elders in the crowd but he presented a question that many of us would like to have -answered—a true answer. Cattle Buying Price Sets Feeding Profits "Most of the money lost in feeding cattle is lost the day the cat-' tie are bought" is an old saying that farmers might heed this year when filling up feedlots, says Re* Beresford, extension animal husbandman at Iowa State College. A good job of buying puts a feeder' well on the way toward a successful feeding operation. A poor buy can be a handicap thai is hard to overcome. Feeder cattle are graded and sold mainly on the basis of outward appearance, but Beresford recommends selecting on the ability to handle feed and to gain economically. These factors are closly re- i lated to roominess, length and | depth of barrel, and ruggedness ol! bone. ' Breeding Counts Ability to gain and the outcome of feeding cattle are not necessarily indicated by the feeder grade. Beresford says. It makes no difference how well a lot of cattle is sorted on the basis of grade because no lot of cattle will feed out with complete uniformity. Much of the ability to gain and develop satisfacorily is inherited. For the farmer who buys his own cattle, Beresford offers these tips. The one sound basis on which to buy cattle is by the pound, checking carefully the weighing conditions and fill. What the feeder dealer calls condition or amount of fill is important. Beresford points out that a steer carrying 30 pounds of fill is worth no more per head to the feeder than before he was filled. So the steer is worth less per pound. A buyer may buy a steer carrying 30 pounds of fill and feed him for a mbnth without getting an ounce of gain. The animal requires 30 days to replace the original fill, and it means wasting feed dollars. Watch Healthiness Beresford also says to buy healthy cattle. Death losses often run from one to 1H per cent. Causes are usually shipping fever and losses may run higher on long-haul calves coming in dur tng bad weather. Cattle received on contract or order should meet the specifications as to grade and condition or be refused until an adjustment .is made. Beresford asks farmers to keep in mind an old point in law "let the buyer beware." He warns the inexperienced buyer to proceed with caution. He thinks that a beginner at the game might better contact a reliable commission firm or dealer and let the experienced man do the selecting and purchasing. THOMAS E. DEWEY FOR PRESIDENT CLINTON* IS STILL BEST OAT IN IOWA Clinton still reings king of oats for Iowa, according to results of 57 j Standard Community Grain Trials i spread over the state this year. | Clinton yields well, stands up, is i a heavy oat and matures early j enough for all parts of Iowa. The i 1S47-48 average gives Clinton an j advantage in yield over second ! place varieties of 4.4 bushels per acre in the northern section of Iowa. 5.8 bushels in the central section and 2.7 bushels in the southern part of the state, Benton was the next highest yielder in the northern and central sections while Mindo yielded . second highest in southern Iowa in the 2-year period. Tabulations on yield, lodging, maturing, weight per bushel and oat height were released this week by L. C. Burnett, Iowa State College agronomist in charge of the community • grain trials.

Telephone No. 251 Postville, Iowa EARL WARREN FOR VICE PRESIDENT significant comparison to make because consistency is important in crop testing. New Ones Lodge More Burnett points out that two newer varieties, Zephyr and Shelby, out-yielded Clinton this year in some sections of the state. However, seed is not available to farmers. He also points out that Zephyr has not done so well in other years and may be dropped from the trials next year. Zephyr is a heavy strawed oat, making it poorer in quality than Clinton. Zephyr and Shelby both have poorer lodging scores than Clinton. However, they stand up well compared with the old varieties. Clinton is outstanding in lodging resistance, topping all varieties by a wide margin. Clinton averaged a lodging score of five compared with a score of 23 for an 'average of all varieties. Zephyr and Shelby are also later than Clinton, averaging 5.5 days later in northern Iowa, 4.5 days later in central Iowa and 3.5 days later in the southern part of the state. Burnett says that their lateness may be one reason why they yielded so well this year. Benton Is Good Even though Shelby has its faults, it is good oat and the agronomists have given it their stamp of approval. Shelby topped all varieties in yield this, year in west central Iowa, outyielding Clinton by 10 bushels. In southern Iowa it was second to Zephyr and out- yielded Clinton by a bushel and a half. Benton, the second highest yield- er in the 2-year average comparison in northern and central Iowa, is about as early as Clinton. It is a tall oat but is stiff-strawed. It is a good one for thin ground.

SERVICE Choose Your Clothes Just Right For You Chances are there's some dress or suit in your wardrobe you "Just love," something you always feel "dressed up" in regardless of fashion changes. Or at least, at some time you've owned an outfit you wore to the last shred and could hardly bear to give up. You like to wear that kind of outfit because you feel right in it, not only because it's comfortable but because you know it makes you look attractive. But just what is it that makes that suit or dress so very special? Maybe you don't quite know. It may have been a very ordinary looking dress when you first saw it on a hanger in the store. What makes it so successful is that it somehow just suits you. It's an outfit which expresses, in its style, coloring and fabric texture, the individual characteristics you happen to have. All your clothes can be special favorites, says Lucille Rea, clothing specialist at Iowa State College. That's the secret of always being well dressed. But you need to study yourself, and never trust to luck when you choose. Of two of us are alike, And remember, all of us have our good features. The thing to do is to emphasize them. Expressing your own personality and individuality in your clothes takes some time and thought. But it counts far more toward looking attractive than spending a lot of money for clothes or having a closet full of many things. Look at yourself and then at your friends. You're different from each other not only in your physical features but also in your ways of doing things. Perhaps some one of your friends is regal of stature, with striking coloring and a decided energetic way of doing things. Maybe you've another friend, , just as attractive, who is the direct opposite in personality and appearance. She 's petite, retiring in nature and calm at all times. Most of us are in-betweens. Miss Rea points out. Perhaps you happen to be small of build; but at the same time, you fairly bubble over with pep and energy. Or maybe you 're broad shouldered and tall, impressive of build; yet you're reserved and quiet in your ways. There may be softness in the lines of your face, while you are sturdy of build and decisive in your actions. In any one of these cases, you have a combination of characteristics. Study your individual characteristics—both in physical makeup and personality. That will give you a helpful key to choosing becoming clothes to wear. Large print designs, long flowing lines, striking colors and pronounced textures — these we associate with the personality and appearance that's forceful. Soft greyed colors, delicate looking prints, fine textures and soft smooth fabrics are suited to the person with more retiring traits. If you're an "in-between" with a tall, well proportioned figure, you might look best in dresses with long flowing lines. But if at the same time you've delicate coloring and fine textured skin, soft colors will be most becoming. Perhaps you also have a vivid personality. Then you may wear rather large designs in print; but you'll want to keep the colors delicate and greyed and the fabric smooth and soft. School News— Warren G.
