•;.,v- ,<;V"4- I The aiil^ I6WS, Jttlr Y,'15*2 ' " " REMEMBER THE fflRHT STAMP OF WORLD WAR NO. 1 No doUbt many >of our readers will remember the thrift stamp of the first world war and the drives made for the sales of stamps and bonds. The thrift stamp sold for 25c., When you had 1C>' of them by adding 12 cents you could buy a war savings stamp. This was worth $4.12 on January 1, 1918. If you bought a war savings stamp in February you had to add Ic, and so on through the year, Ic per month, and the war savings stamp In December would cost you $4.23. When you had gathered enough of the stamps you could exchange them for a bond which paid 4 percent, payable quarterly. How Easy Today It .will be remembered that you paid $100 for a bond and later on you might have to sell It for $85. Thousands of citizens took losses on those bonds because they became money market transactions like the stocks of today. Then, too there wasn't any easy time-payment angle to the purchases those days as there are today. Two bits was the least. And a $50 bond was the Enlist in the Navy And Naval Reserve The Navy Recruiting Station at Spencer, Iowa, the navy headquarters for this county, furnishes the following information concerning enlistment in the Navy and Naval Reserve: 1. Enlistment in the Naval Reserve is for the duration of war, and men, 17 to 60 are eligible. Enlistment in the regular Navy is for six years and men 17 to 31 are eligible. In every other respept, such as pay, free medical and dental attention, uniforms, work and opportunity for advancement, the two branches are identical. 2. Men who have special training or know a trade cart be enlisted in the higher ratings corresponding to their training or trade. 3. Young men with no training have an opportunity to attend the Navy Trade Schools. There is a choice of 5 different trades which can be learned. (Training valued at $1500. ) 4. The new pay raise and dependency allowances for men with dependents give every enlisted nr-in and his family a satisfactory income. 5. Any man, 17 to 50, can enlist in the Naval Reserve if he is physically qualified. Even though a man is classified under the Selective Service, he can -en-list in the lowest you could buy. Today you Na ' yal Regerve up to the __ _ I..... n4-n wi nn t M (-Vin T MCI Han/1YY1» " _ . ... . • . 1 can buy stamps in the lOc denonv ination, or 25c. and when you have $18.75 worth of thee you exchange them for a $25 bond. In ten years it is worth $25. How simple and easy, comparatively, that is. Tn this way every citizen who has any job at all can buy a war bond. And though he only buys one he is helping Uncle Sam slap a Jap. A Quarter Century Since Along with the reminder of tho world war thrift stamps also comes the posters that were used in those days. Fred Timm brought to this office a half dozen of the posters which were distributed 25 years ago. They were found in the barn •on the late Judge Quarton's place, 808 S. Minnesota street, when C. D. Colburn, who has purchased the barn, started to raize it. There was one of Pershing, famous general of that tmie; one of J foaon get that time; one of Joan of Arc appealing to the masses to help fight; several setting out appeals for bond purchases, etc. Throughout the appeals were to fight or finance, as they are today.

Setting new high, Johnson county sold 10.9 stamps per capita, breaking Clarke county's long-standing record of 9.8 seals established in 1919. Worth county attained the greatest increase over 1940, its gain aelng 5.3 cents per capita. Kossuth county placed second with a gain of 3.8 cents. Assistance6 to recruits rejected IRVING-TON NEWS moment he is actually inducted (sworn in) into the Army. 6. Men in the Nlavy and Naval Reserve receive the best of food and living quarters. 7. Advancement and promotion is certain for enlisted men willing to work. 8. The physical requirements for enlistment in the Naval Reserve have recently been modified, in regard to vision and teeth. Men who have previously been rejected because of defects in eyes and teeth should apply again. 9. Men- in the Navy and Naval Reserve know that tttey are fulfilling their duties as American citizens in time of war. HO.

Cutting the annual weeds before they seed will control them. .Pastures, roads and waste areas should be mowed now and again once or twice before fall. Cutting before seed matures is very effective. After the seed is matured little is accomplished except the looks. Pastures will also produce much more feed when the weeds are kept down. Cattle do not like to graze in the weed areas and in fact the weeds will in time kill out the grass. WHEN ALL YOUR JARS ARE FILLED USE DRYINO METHOD If fruit and vegetable containers are filled with food from victory garden sand homemakers wish to preserve still more, they may use the drying method. Whatever the method of drying, by sunshine or controlled heat, "speed" should be kept in mind—both when preparing fresh foods and when starting the drying process. (Fruits are easier to dry than njios,t vegetables. " Those commonly dried at home are apples, apricots, peaches and pears, but other fruits that may be satisfucto^]^ dried are plums and prunes. Vegetables ordinarily dried are sweet corn, shelled beans and peas, snap beans, pumpkins and squash. [Best temperatures for drying are between 125 and 160 degrees F., with increased temperature in the middle stages of drying and a decrease toward the end. Dried fruits and vegetables will keep' for a year or longer if sealed in moisture- proof containers and stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Homemakers, test your jar rings now. If they dont' stand the test of a good pull, bring them in to the rubber salvage station. Every jar ring helps. Vegetables canned whole instead of pressed for juice, give more food value for the space in the containers. Good meals for a family of four can use up these vegetables and fruits each week of the year—potatoes, sweet potatoes, 11 pounds; tomatoes, citrus fruits, 8 pounds;' leafy green, yellow vegetables, 12 pounds; mature beans and peas, 3-4 pounds; other vegetables and fruit, 16 pounds. Green tomatoes have practically the same food value as ripe red tomatoes and can be fried, stuffed, preserved, pickled or used for pies. San Diego Marines Have Big 4th Dinner A menu for the 4th of July dinner served in the U. S. Naval hospital in San Diego, California, sent to a friend here by one of the boys stationed there indicates that a fine meal was served on the nation's birthday. The menu was printed on the replica of a big fire cracker and contained the following: tomato juice cocktail, celery hearts, sweet mixed pickles, ripe olives cream of celery soup, roast young torn turkey, sage dressing, giblcl gravy, cranberry sauce, candied sweet potatoes, buttered green p\ts, French rolls, butter, chocolate layer cake, vanilla ice cream, coffee and cigarets. According to that the boys in the service who could not make the trip for a home dinner at least were given the best and finest of meals. 250 COMBINES IN COUNTY UNABLE TO HARVEST BEANS Every farmer who will have soybeans to harvest this fall should be making plans now to take care of the crop. County Agent, A. L. Brown, says that another short combining season such as was experienced last fall together with the greatly increased bean acreage might cause big losses qf a crop which is very important to the successful prosecution of the war. A survey of the County War Board indicates that there are only 250 combines or less in Kossuth county and that the acreage of beans indicates that each combine will have over 200 acres to take care of. If farmers will make contracts for combining beans early, any shortage in harvesting facilities will be known early enough so that proper steps can be taken to obtain equipment, Mr. Brown says. (To assist in the war effort all farmers should make the most of every possibility of using machinery jointly. It is through such cooperation in small neighborhood groups that many labor and machinery shortage problems can be solved. Bancroft Boy Joins 3verseas Air Force Bancroft.
