In Iowa, after golf beer's the one... for good taste, good fun After a hard-played 18 holes it's good to settle down on a soft chair in the club house and add up the score with friends. What better time for the drink that scores with almost every golfer—cool, thirst-quenching beer? Yes, beer's great to relax with, great for refreshment, great for taste. So whatever your sport- boating or baseball—swimming or tennis —relax afterwards with the zestful taste of beer. UNITED STATES BREWERS ASSOCIATION, INC. P.O. BOX 159. OSCEOLA, IOWA Algeria (la.)

Republicans Plan A "Buck" Night Oct. 21 "Plans for making'Buck Night' one of the most successful drives in the county's history are nearing completion," Kossuth County Republican Chairman Oliver S. Carlson said today. "Buck Night," which will be held in all parts of Iowa the evening of Oct. 21, is the major statewide fund-raising and organization drives to be held by Iowa Republicans this year. "Our aim is simple," Carlson said. "We want to collect money to help us get ready for the 1966 election campaigns, and we want to find out right now how our county organization is working." Carlson said, "A drive such WOODEN GOODIES Can't part with a certain magazine picture, comic strip or postcard? Don't! Ask your lumberyard for a piece of scrapwood to fit. Stain or paint the wood's edges. Spray the picture with clear plastic. Spread a thin, even layer of wallpaper paste on the wood. Press picture in place, then quickly soak a cloth in wallpaper paste. With circular motion, smooth paste lightly over picture, making sure all air bubbles leave. Dry. Re- spray with plastic, and put a hook on the back for hanging; gives you Christmas gift-ideas, doesn't it? Why not start saving pictures now? GOBLIN-OUSTER Is there a "goblin" at your house — an ancient stove, outworn water heater or outmoded clothes dryer that keeps haunting you? Hurry to your local gas company or gas appliance dealer! The "Great Autumn Sale" is on. It's your chance to save dollars on wonderful late-model gas helpmates (at terms that won't make Daddy walk in his sleep). Northern Natural Gas Company supplies clean, efficient, economical natural gas to your local gas company so you can live modern, for less. > Northern Natural Gas Company, Omaha, Nebraska DOUBLE DRAMA [Who ever de- Icided all four ijwalls in one (room had to 'wear the same [wall paper? [.My neighbor decided they didn't. The effect is great! She used one pattern suggesting open iron grillwork, another linen-like design in a newsy turquoise blue. The couch-wall in her living room has panels of the two patterns, like stripes. One wall — backgrounding a big library table — wears the grillwork, while the other two are blue. Think of the fun you could have with a mix-match like that! If Dad's a do-it-your-selfer, you could do it over a weekend. TAMER GAME )W hen the | young ones at jyour Halloween party reach the j ump-an d- bellow stage, bring out this button game to tame them! Paint one or two egg cartons a bright color. Set one score for buttons tossed into the back sections, a lower score for buttons landing in the front. Kids take turns by teams, and add up their scores when finished. Prizes? Cookies trimmed with Jack O'Lantern faces, or hard- boiled eggs wearing witches' hats and painted frowns. FAREWELL, FAIR As the World's Fair draws to a close, I just must remind you once more that 90% of the heating and 80% of the cooling at the entire fair was supplied by gas. There's a moral there for you and me! Gas heating costs less, and works more efficiently. Keeps places cleaner, too. And if you convert to gas heat — which takes only a day, in most cases — you're all ready to add whole-house gas air conditioning later. Why not have your local gas company recommend a gas heating expert to give you a free estimate?
