Upper Be* Molne* Tuesday, May 15, 1962 CHANGING TIMES It seems that changing times are having an effect on many lines of activity other than the ordinary retail businesses. At Belmond, there is genuine concern because General Mills has announced that it will withdraw completely from the feed business. General Mills has been marketing feeds under the trade name of "Larro''. Their Belmond plant has been one of several that manufactured the formula feeds, called "Sure Feeds." The shutdown was announced Feb. 28. In announcing the decision to close, the company pointed out that poultry prices have been below the cost of production, and that as a result their poultry feed operations had been unprofitable. General Mills itself will merely discontinue an unprofitable unit of its business. To the people at Belmond it could mean a considerable loss, unless the plant is diverted to other activities. And it emphasizes only too well that when the farmer is forced to operate at no profit, or less than the cost of production, his situation has a more far-reatching effect than just in his own farmyard. * * * WHAT IS A PROFESSION? Britt News-Tribune — A minority of New York City teachers may have done their colleagues an injustice by the recent "teachers' strike" in that city. Of the 40,000 teachers in New York, less than 3,000 went out on strike, although many more are members of the union affiliated with AFL-CIO. Teachers have been trying to establish a "professional" status over a period of years, but they did this rating no good by striking. They have relegated themselves to a position comparable to trade and craft unions, which have a stronger reason for collective bargaining. Teachers, as is the practice in Iowa, are hired on an individual basis by contract. By doing a latisfactory job in the classroom they have no ,'rouble renewing that contract, and usually at a higher rate of salary. The nation's supply of teachers is such that if the salary offer by one school is not satisfactory, there seems to be ample opportunity to apply at other schools. If teachers are to build a professional status, as they like to maintain, they would be ahead to keep this independence of choice and movement. They can't eat off of both ends of the loaf of bread. * * * Someone suggests that the worst punishment that could be inflicted on a woman would be to lock her in a room with 100 hats and no mirrow ! — Columbus Gazette. * * * Housework is something you do that nobody notices unless you don't do it! — Dallas Center Times. * * * A fellow wouldn't mind loaning his mower if the borrower wouldn't take it out of the yard. — Kiron Weekly News LET THEM GO A New Jersey resident, who has been having his daughter educated in Russia, says he wants to leave the United States and take his family to Russia to make their future home. He added that he just wants to get out of the country, to Russia, or even Cuba if he can't get to Russia. He is seeking a passport, but having trouble getting one. Reason is the his native state of Georgia will not give him the necessary birth certificate. Perhaps this is a case where some exception to the rule should be made. If the man wants to go to Russia or Cuba, and either will grant him entry, let him go. That's about the best way we can think of to make him realize just what he had — and left behind — in the U.S.A. * * * HOW ABOUT SAFFLOWER OIL? We know something about corn, soybeans and sorghum, but has anyone in our area investigated the possibilities of raising safflower plants ? Safflower oil is just beginning to reach prominence as a food product; it comes from the safflower plant, an aster-like herb which is being grown mainly in the Imperial Valley of California, and Arizona, but which can also be grown in at least part of the Great Plains states. We don't know about Iowa ? But we can grow Just about anything else except tropical plants, why not safflowers ?

This means it contains the least content of cholesterol, which is what medical science has said leads to development of heart disease. In other words, safflower oil appears to be on the threshhold of replacing other ingredients which produce more cholesterol. But to get back to what we started to say. Maybe this saffiower plant might have a future, and if so, who wants to start raising it? It is already being used in some margarines in other parts of the country.

Men and monkeys zoom around the world, there's cannibalism in the Congo and a bearded wildman on the doorstep. Patriot is concerned about his country and will fight and die for it, without much fuss, jusl as his forbears have. He's against communism, pays his taxes, and can be counted on to uphold and perhaps uplift the standards of his community. A year ago he took part in choosing a President, and feels the man elected is in the spot to know what needs to be done. Patriot is anxious to help and wishes there were some simple solution, but does not think it lies in pushing all the buttons. So he settles down to a long haul and goes about his daily routine, confused perhaps but hopeful. Only to be more confused by super patriot, who alternately cajoles and berates him. Patriot minds his own business pretty much. Super patriot has clandestine meetings, secret handshakes and jousts with presidents past, present and future. Patriot trie-, his best to keep up with the news. Super patriot bugs him for not reading selected :by SP) literature for homework every r.ight. Patriot is proud of the flag. Super patriot bullies him for not waving it all day long. In his slow way, patriot likes to see both sides of a story. Super patriot chastises his indecision. If patriot demurs, he is labeled all colors of the rainbow. So spare a thought this weekend for patriot, bumbling along minus the perfection of his superiors. Not only is he missing all the fun. He's in danger of being silenced altogether. * * * Quality has everything in its favor including the price. * * * The trouble with golf is that by the time you can afford to lose a ball you can't hit it far enough to lose it. date, according to Theo Hutchi- ia's Academy, Algona, entered the A well-known Algona woman, snn pntinrv nnairman f«n *u« ° son, county chairman for the drive.
