Biirt Father And Son Month's Conservationists Walter and Richard Campney were named as Conservation Farmers of the Month at the District Commissioners Meeting, according to Julius Baas, Chairman. Walter and his son Richard operate a 240 acre farm three miles south of Hurt. "Contouring holds moi'3 wafer and we have noticed that we have been able to work the flat land as quick as the hills. Contouring holds water out of the pot holes," the Campneys say. "Contouring one year is not a good test. It takes more than one year for you to get to know the value of contouring," they relate. The Campneys produce grade A milk from a 48 head dairy cattle herd. This herd of cattle are pastured on a nine acre pasture consisting of mixture of alfalfa and orchard grass. Rotation pasturing is featured on their farm with a different pasture each day. This is accomplished by dividing the field into five pastures and moving the temporary electric fence each day. The Campneys first started to contour in 1953. That year they contoured 100 acres and Increased their acreage of contouring In 1952. The same year they buUt additional waterways. This spring the Conservation Farmers are renovating five acres of bluegrass pasture and they are seeding it to birds- foot trefoil as part of their renovation program. Their future plans call for more pasture renovation including trefoil, a stock water pond, terraces and a new tile system. Richard is a graduate of Iowa State University. His wife, Dorothy, is the head nurse at the Buffalo Center Hospital. She is also active in the Heart Association. One of their hobbies is square dancing. Walter is president of the Cooperative Elevator Board at Burt and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Iowa Breeders Cooperative. Mrs. Walter Campney is part-time employed assisting In the taking of polls, one of which Is a scientific poll for Iowa State University Statistical Laboratory. Both families are active in the Methodist Church. AHS Thespians Present Burt Man Is Engaged To Wed In Late June "Finian" Here **"- T * .

My older sister is graduating from high school. I know she's going to get all kinds of gifts she can use in college, but I'd like to give her something that's both personal and original. How can I be different without spending much money? A. Knowing what she likes and your own imagination probably will give you several good ideas. Here are a few to start \vith: Is she stage-struck? How about R-o tickets to a summer theater performance or to a special (for her) movie• If her hair is her crowning glory, treat her to a shampoo and set at her favorite shop. Make arrangements in advance, pay the bill after she's been there. If your budget is at rock-bottom, how about a gilt-edged certificate good for cleaning her room for a month? Or for ironing her summer skirts, blouses and shorts for two or three weeks? The thought's the thing, and whatever you decide she'll know it's really from you! Q. Help! I need to lose ten pounds immediately! I'm willing to practically starve if only I can be a size smaller in less than two weeks. Please tell me a good diet. A. .Sorry we don't believe in it. Starving that is. The only effect we know it's had on girls who've tried it is to make them sick, ill-tempered, or both! Hardly the kind of companion anyone would want For the Big Occasion ynii mii^t he thinking r.hnut. A well -balanced diet (no snacks or sweets * and exercise are the cnmhinatinn that takes e\tr.i pounds off slmvly-and sensiblv! For anything more drastic than this, check with your doctor. Q. One of the families I baby sit for has four children. The parents are quite insistent about my checking on them every hour after they're in bed. Usually when I start doing my homework I forget all about the time. Making sure they're all right is part of my job, too. What can I do that will help me remember to look in on them every hour? A. Use the same reminder tli.i: gets you up in the morning —your alarm clock! Take one with you — or ask your client to put one in the living room while you're there. Set it to ring periodically so you can make your "rounds." One warning: The alarm should be loud enough for you to hear but soft enough so it doesn't waken the youngsters. It'll be a reminder, too, that you should finish your science homework and get on to history or social studies! (For anstfers to other question! on grooming, beauty and baby sitting, write for your ttt'o-in-otie guidebook, "Sitting Beauty." Send 35 cents to: "Sitting Beauty," Box 55 l-P, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Nee- nab, Wisconsin.)
