The Mid-America Chorale, a regional professional performing vocal group, is composed of 24 young professional singing artists chosen last summer by audition in major U.S. cities. Since early October, the chorale has been rehearsing a choral concert of music of the 1300*5 up to and including the new works of'1967.

Anyone not currently attending a high school is eligible to participate. Some registrations have been received, but more are needed. Mayors, Peace Officials From Area Hear Gov. Five persons from this area, including Mayor Bill Finn and Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst of Algona, Mayor Harold Gartner of Titonka, and Norbert Hilbert and Mr. Hansen of Wesley, attended a one-day conference, entitled "People vs. Crime" at Des Moines Thursday and heard Gov. Harold Hughes and well-known law enforcement officials tell of the appalling crime wave in Iowa. Gov. Hughes outlined a plan he calls "All Iowa Alert" aimed at doing something about crime in this state. The plan is quite extensive and if accepted by community leaders, phurch officials and law enforcement agencies, could possibly provide some of the answers to control of crime. Citizen support of law enforcement agencies, plus cooperation, are necessary, according to Gov. Hughes, if such an all-out plan is to work. He also pointed out that when poverty, discrimination and inequality are fought, crime is also fought. Ever Talk to Yourself like this? I have worked X years, earned $X, and have saved $X.

Upper Oe$ M0!nei-5 WHEN IT COMES TO WARS, we women don't have much to say about them. We are expected to do a great deal in providing the manpower, supporting the efforts, and shedding the tears, but nothing in the decision-making that brings war about. That is all left up to the men, and the way things are going, it isn't so good. - o - A NUMBER OF YEARS BACK there was a woman from Montana, a Miss Rankin, who cast the only vote in Congress against our entrance into World War I and she lost her job in the next election. More recently we note that she is again in the news, and she hasn't changed her mind. She is still against war. So you see that while women are usually accused of having changeable minds, Miss Rankin is an exception. - o - IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES, raising the kids, planning the meals, sewing on the buttons, taking care of the tummyaches, humoring our husbands after a bad day in town, in the field, or at work, we usually don't have much time for getting involved in the processes of government which seem to lead to war about every 20 or 25 years. But maybe it's time we did I -G-- MEN HAVE MADE A mess of things. No matter how glib they can get on the TV or in their other speeches, they have made a mess, pure and simple, of the best form of government in the world. And in other nations where the government organization is a little different, they aren't doing any better. Their ideas always seem to center on a lust for power, or a place in history, or a Big Name for themselves, no matter what the cost to the rest of us, especially the women. We are supposed to sit around and give them the gaze of adoring wonderment, when actually we should probably be telling them the truth, which is that they aren't as blamed wonderful as they seem to think. - o - NOW MOST WOMEN DON'T have the time to get too active in things like the League of Women Voters — an organization which sometimes seems to have an honest interest in government at heart — and at other times seems to be a springboard for some political partisanship. But we do have a little more time than we did in the pre-electricity clays, and perhaps we should spend a little more time taking an interest in just what is going on, and if necessary tell our husbands a thing or two about some of the insensible things that their men in government are doing. - o - WE WOMEN MAY NOT BE the smartest ones who ever put on a girdle, but if we didn't have some common sense we'd sure hear about it from the lord and master of the household. One thing for sure, we learned long ago that when you try to solve a problem you don't always have to go to war over it. If we did, the divorce courts couldn't handle the rush 1 - o - MAYBE THE GOVERNMENTS of the world would be a lot better, off if each one of them had to have one or two women sitting in on all" of'those decision-making and policy-making meetings. Over half of the people in this country - and the world— are women. Yet you cannot name one woman today who really is sitting in on any of the major decisions that will effect their homes and the lives of their own families, not to mention themselves. - o - IT'S FINE TO TURN OVER the problems of beautifying the roadsides and wrapping packages for CARE and some of those other things to the women. But what we need is a little of woman's intuition in running this world. One thing for certain, we women couldn't guess wrong any worse than have the men, and it's just possible that we might guess better! Postmasters Hold District Meeting, Burt BURT - The North Central District, National Association of Postmasters of the United States held an all-day meeting the Burt American Legion hall Wednesday, March 13, with Wallace P.
