•flie Algdha LAKOTA FARM HOME DAMAGED BY FIRE SATURDAY Lakota — The house on the Steve Powers farm west of town was badly damaged by fire Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Powers used kerosene to start a fire in the range preparatory to getting supper, when the can caught fire and ignited a sweater she was wearing and in order to save being badly burned Mrs. Powers threw the blazing can onto the back porch while she put out the fire in her clothes and the wind being high, the house was soon on fire. Mr. Powers was at the barn and got her out of the house in safety and she drove the car to the Petersen farm and called the Lakota fire company and neighbors and the fire was soon under control. While fire, smoke and water damaged the kitchen and equipment, the main part of the house was saved. Luckily Mrs. Powers suffered no serious burns and the building was insured, but with the terrific wind that was blowing it is a wonder the house was saved.

Worlmans and the Jerry Ukenas were Sunday dinner guests at the Wilfred Carlsons at Swea City.

I guess that is the reason we are having such a wet season. Here is to you. Keep the babies coming anJ pass the ammunition. God bless the mothers and the wives that fill the hives. There are some sad, anxious mothers in this country now. Putting our boys in the Salerno beaches against overwhelming odds must have been a military mistake. The enemy outnumbered them 3 to 1 and was well fortified. Our gallant boys won, but there are 14,000 broken hearted mothers in this country as the result. I wish this horrible war was over and the ones that started it in H . Harry Hopkins has moved out of the White House. Now if Mrs. Roosevelt will get it out of her head that this war is a social affair and quit chasing around it may help. The Red Cross nurses, the Salvation Army, and the Sisters of Charity are the women the boys want to see. It is a long hard road yet to victory and it is a man's job. On the home front we all have jobs to perform. I am trying to keep the shoe store going and am putting every cent I can rake and scrape into bonds. All I keep back is enough to pay the shoe factories. No trouble to sell the shoes, but it is a hard job to get any new shoes that are fit to sell. With me it is good serviceable shoes or no shoes at all. Just now we are making a special price of $3.98 on our men's Jeffersonian oxfords. They are a nationally advertised line at $5.00 and $5.50 and the best wearing line I ever handled. Leather soles, well tailored, splendid fitters. At $3.98 they are a real buy.

At Jeb Crowell's the other day, we were havin' a glass of beer or two and talkin' about the kind of world there'd be when Peace came. "Hear they'll have trans-Atlan- tic airplanes flyin' regular as taxi service," says Ed Carey. "Yep," says Will Frost, "and television and plastic cars and air-conditioned homes and super-duper highways." Finally, Doc Mitchell chimes in. "You know," he says, "we're talkin 1 about the future in terms of luxuries-like air-condiUcjned houses and television. "But what really will shape tomorrow's world Is what goes on In men's own hearts ... like tolerance and understanding." And from where I sit, Doc's right Whether It's tolerance of another's politics or respect for a neighbor's right to enjoy a glass of beer occasionally, tolerance is a mighty good foundation for a peacetime world. No. 69 of a Scries Copyright, 1943, Brewing Industry Foundation ;ernoon. „. Luedtke and Alice and Mr. and attended tha reception held at the I Mrs. Albert "My old Sahara Jeep was never like tourin' this way, Mom" When Johnny comes sailing home again, he'll be more than ready for soft seat cushions. Through the windows he'll eye that super-colossal feature, the grand old U. S. A. It will look all the better because you—Johnny's loving proud folks—are with him again. After your nights of volunteer war work—and coupons—and questionnaires— you could easily stand as much touring as Johnny. You'll need a car that can stand it. But since the conversion from war production must take time—just aa conversion from peace production did—you'll fret a long while for any new Victory model. Better preserve your present car for the duration and beyond. One big thing working against this, plainly speaking, is engine acid! After combustion stops, and your car stands long, the acid always formed in any engine can keep gnawing undisturbed. Gone are the big mileage, ample speed and resulting engine heat that formerly kept down acid damage. Today's opposite driving conditions could multiply acid damage, except that you can have the interior of your engine protectively OIL-PLATED by the simple economical change to Conoco N"> motor oil. There is a synthetic in Conoco N^» oil that makes it "magnetically active," as it were, attracting OIL-PLATINQ to inner engine surfaces. OIL-PLATING resembles other anti-corrosive plating in not all draining down at a standstill, and in maintaining interference against such a dangerous corrosive as acid. Today—and for many tomorrows—OIL-PLATE with N'A at Your Mileage Merchant's Conoco station.
