Meyer of Ossian, together with those from other northeastern Iowa towns, were up at Decorah park last Sunday to partake of a picnic dinner given in honor of Mr. Meyer, it being his birthday anniversary. The event was a surprise and had been planned by Mr Meyer's children. Ronald Gundcrson. the little son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Gunderson on the Schuette farm, south east of Postville, was severely bitten on the left arm last Friday by the German police dog with which he was playing. The little fellow was brought to the office of Drs. Kiesau & Kiesau to have his injuries attended to, and it required three stitches to close the wound. Mrs. Albert Zieman of this city accompanied Arthur Brandt and Mrs. Gene Birdsell of Frankville up to St. Cloud, Minn., on Monday to attend the funeral of their cousin. Ed Mueller. Mr. Mueller was a former resident of this locality, having some years ago resided on the present Henry Heusman farm east of Postville. Mrs. Lena Behrons of this city met with a very unfortunate accident on Tuesday evening as she was coming out of the L. F. Schroeder Variety Store, when she made a misstep and fell down the three stone steps at the store and striking on the cement sidewalk face foremost, bruising her hip and receiving several cuts on her face. Friends will be pleased to learn that she is getting along nicely and will soon be about again. Mr. and Mrs. L. F. Putnam of Postville, Mrs. G. W. Hunt of Guttenberg, Miss Lydia Schukei of Waukon and Miss Cora B. Darling of Waterloo motored out to Hampton last Sunday to meet Miss Edna B. Stolt of Sheridan. Wyoming, who was there that day. In the long ago these ladies were all teachers in the Postville public schools under the superintendency of G. W. Hunt, and to relate they had a most happy time goes without saying. The Neighborhood Card Club of Postville enjoyed a picnic last Sunday at Decorah Park and Siever's Springs near that city. Those in attendance were Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wilke. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Meyer. Mr. and Mrs. Luver C. Schultz and Dorothy, Mrs. L. H. Schroeder. Mr. and Mrs. Joe Duwe and family. Mr. and Mrs. Gus Miller. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Wegner. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Koevenig, Mr. and Mrs. L. O.

Father Schares and Joseph Steele were former classmates at Columbia College. Dubuque, and the close friendship formed at that time happily still continues. A. J. Phillips of this city has been a very sick man the past week, being stricken with pneumonia very shortly after primary election day. when he served as a member of the election board.

Klingbeil and Richard were week-end visitors with their respective home folks at Monroe and Juda, Wis. The princi^ pal event, however, for Mrs. Klingbeil was attending a reunion of her class from the Green County Normal School which was held at Monroe on Saturday. During Monday night and Tuesday afternoon this section was visited by close to an inch of rainfall that came in the best possible manner to moisten the ground and give aid to vegetation. The Monday night storm was accompanied by scattering hail which, however, did little damage worth talking about. The rainfall down along the Elkader branch of the Milwaukee seems to have been a little more vio lent than here resulting in a slight washout on the railway. Nancy Lee is the name of a sweet little Miss that came last Wednesday to gladden the hearts and home of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Lange of Decorah. And as this is the first "blessed event" in this home we extend hearty congratulations. The arrival of this sweet little bunch of femininity also conferred grandparental honors for the first time upon Mr. and -Mrs. Gaddes Brooks of this city and Mr. and Mrs. Ben W. Lange of- route 3, Postville, who are wearing their new togas with becoming dignity, and we also extend to them hearty congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Roberts, the Misses Elma Berkland, Annette Ris lov and Irene Wagner returned last Thursday evening from almost a week's outing up in northern Minne sota that took them clear up to the Canadian border and put 1300 extra miles on their speedometer. They made headquarters for several days at a tourist camp in the vicinity of Duluth, Minn., taking journeys out in different directions. One of these trips was over Gun Flint Trail, a delightful 60-mile journey through virgin forests with beautiful lakes at the end of the trail. Another trip was to Port Arthur and Port Williams, two of Canada's principal shipping ports, and on this drive they had a view of Kakeekicka Falls, with, a greater drop than Niagara Falls, and a most charming sight to see, and they also had the privilege of seeing 60,000 feet of pulp logs make the plunge over the falls and into the abyss below and then go floating on down stream to the paper mills. Then they spent a day visiting in Duluth. After this they went on to Minneapolis, where it.twas their privilege to hear the Luther College Concert Band in their first concert on their way to Europe. The concert was held in an enormous Norwegian Lutheran church at the triennial conclave of the Norwegian Lutheran churches of the United States and Canada, and although this great church has a seating capacity of not far from 5.000 it was packed solidly and many had to stand, as did Mr. Roberts and his party, to hear the concert. A very pretty and probably pre-arranged incident occurred during a brief pause in the concert, when a number of young ladies, each carrying a basket, came on to the player's platform and presented each member of the band with a copy of the New Testament to carry with them on their journey across the sea. There was no admission charge to the concert, but at the close of the program a free-will offering was taken that amounted to something over $400, which - is evidence of how well they had appreciated the great musical program. And be it remembered, our own Clifton Weihe is a member of that band.

"BUSTER" NEUENSWANDER WRITES FROM CALIFORNIA In sending in the "spondulicks" for a yearly subscription to the Herald, "Buster" Neuehswander, formerly of Castalia, and well known in Postville, but now of Maywood, California, has the following interesting things to say: "Friend "Bill"—Well, news from the old home town and vicinity is very scarce here in Southern California; except during the week of the Iowa picnic. "Southern California is On the boom and is fast becoming quite an automotive center. General Motors has re cently opened a new giant assembly plant about three miles from Maywood. "I have been employed by the U. S. Tire & Rubber Co. for the past eight months, and at present we are in the midst of plenty of business; working eight hours a day capacity, and are way behind on orders. I am employed in the shipping department as a clerk, and an idea of how we work can be had by my weight. When I first entered the plant I weighed in at 218 pounds and at present tip the scales at 168 pounds." John Falb, Jr., and Mrs. Truman Overeen ' went to Rochester, Minn., Monday and brought back with them Mr. Overeen, who had been in the hospital there for several months recovering from a serious operation. Truman's many friends will be pleased to learn that he is gradually regaining his health and is now able to walk about a little each day and the physicians say in due time will be as good as ever. Mr. Overeen before his illness was the efficient mechanic at the Falb garage. 'Gifford Berkland and the Misses Alice and Florence Berkland, all of Inwood, motored here last Sunday to get their sister, Miss Elma Berkland, a teacher in the Postville public schools. While here these people were guests of Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Roberts, with whom Miss Berkland makes her home during the school year. They were entertained at dinner at the Blue Arrow, after which Mr. and Mrs. Roberts escorted them through a bit of the - "Switzerland of Iowa," showing them some of the scenic beauties in the vicinity of McGregor and then piloting them across the big suspension bridge at Marquette and taking them on a tour through the Nelson Dewey state park below Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, and we can assure you tjiese good people were more than delighted with the many beauties of nature they saw.

Pharmacy The REXALL Store IRIS THEATRE TO SHOW FILM "UNDER TWO FLAGS" JUNE 14-15 "Under Two Flags", to be shown at The Iris Theatre Sunday and Monday, June 14 and 15, is one of the biggest pictures that has beon attempted since the depression era. Little do people realize the tremendous efforts and the stupendous costs of making a big picture. In order to film the scenes for this big picture here is an idea of what was necessary: "To film the scenes it. was necessary to travel to the dune country near the Arizona border. Here, not far from the southern transcontinental highway, camp was set up. Technicians and workers hated the task. They recalled the woes that beset the Beau Geste company in years gone by. Every mile they traveled away from the highway was over treacherous sand dunes towering one after another. After considerable discussion, a wood road was built for five-eighths of a mile across the sand. Built by Yuma Indians, the road's 6,000 odd Eucalytus logs were anchored down in 20 days and a thunderous motorcade of tractors and trucks trek to the camp site. Twenty-seven truck loads of lumber were hauled to the scene. With 90 carpenters on hand, four of the largest outdoor sets in many a year went up almost overnight. These sets included a fort 200 feet square for the embattled Foreign Legion; an Arabian oasis with eight buildings and transplanted palms; two Arabian tent cities and a horse market and a smaller fort. But still the construction work continued. One camp had to be constructed for 200 major players; another housed 600 higher-paid extras, and a third was built for locally hired extras who were to become Arabs. Each of the 107 house tents had maid service, heating facilities, electricity, and other conveniences. In addition a radio headquarters, two large wardrobe tents, two offices, three mess halls and stables were erected. To feed the more than i,000 extras, 20th Century hired Anderson Brothers' facilities. It was this outfit that satisfied the appetites of thousands of workers at Boulder Dam during its construction. All together, approximately 1,400. persons spent three weeks among the sand dunes. On occasions local populations were hired enmasse for big scenes, bringing more than 3,000 people on the scene at one time. More than 6,000 costumes were used in the production. P r o ps included 1,287 French Lebel rifles, 800 U. S; 30-06's; the later rebuilt to resemble Arabian arms. Frank Lloyd, the genius behind 'Mutiny on the Bounty", directed this great film. The Iris always shows two | shows every night, at 7:00 and 9:15," and on Sundays, the matinee starts at 2:30 o'clock p. m. POSTVILLE COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. . . Regular meeting on June 5, 1936.
