And what is tihe first thing they read? P P The first (thing they turn to Is the advertisemen'ts. They not only read them completely, but they spend oonsideraible time actually studying them. P P According to Dr Almquist, there is nothing tbat better portrays (the American way at life to thes« natives than (the advertising they read.

It would certainly be )hlghly 'raoourAging to realize tlhat his readin« public itiuzns to the ads ^rst and pursuea them very carefully.

S(pencer, Iowa - Fred Waring and his half-a-hundred Pennsylvanians are coming to Spencer Apr 9 to present their big new musical show "Hear! Hear!" It's a program of wonderful Waring music combined wifb imaginative scenery, and extensive wardrobe and thrilling electronic devices. Bing Crosby aaya of it, "It's, real music! The best ever!" Cole Pojiter declares, "Superbly staged. Spectacular prodfaction. A great show." Waring, one of the nations out-s landing showmen, is making a return engagement to Spencer. His show la&t year was acclaimed the '«best ever" otf the big name productions brought to the fieldhouse. The fieldhouse seats 41B5 for such performance. An old time minstrel show is headline for "Hear! Hear!" Gaily costumed in the traditionally colorful wardrobe of the minstrels and aided by thrilling mins.trel songs, the members of tIhe Waring glee club step forward for solos and specialty acts exactly as they may hikve done a half a century ago. There are religious and patriotic songs, popular tunes, semi-claasics and love songs to round out this pageant of musical joy. Choregr-aphy has added to the production a gay and exciting folk song sequence. Fred Waring, Jr, a college student, makes this debut as a performer in "Hear! Hear!" playing the trombone and banjo. Another father son combination is the singing team, Leonard and Bob Kranen-doak, known as "The Happy Warrior«." Fronk Davis, acclaimed as the greatest Negro voice since William Waidield, is a featured soloist. A native «on of New Orleans, he has been made an honorary citizen of the "Cresent City," iihe second FARM NOTESf.Uiitìri by Leland Long If a fanner is godng to U|kkA a profit tins year, be will haire to follow a slogan such as "ease tihe Squeeze" or "adjust or bust.'-' Laeit year, we felt ti>e firat jolt of post-war adjustment. Will ligfatn' ing strike twice in Hhe same place? Apparently some Congressmen think so for they are woricing feverishly trying to develop « ifarat program which will g^t votes this fall. Wihat will farm prices do this fall? The weather 'has a great dMl to do with the answer. If we have a good crop this year and Congre.-^ doesn't g^ too wild we can. expect 90e com. A dry year may see com reach $1.80 or high er. If this year is as dry as last yeai-, our com may be no more ll'.ian fodder. Our sub-soil waiier reserve is very low. mmem&er that grain sorghum or soyiboans will produce more under drougth conditions than- com. Soyfbeana that fail to produce beans will still give you a high-quality hay. Grain sorghum will do much batter than corn on a dry year and will mstoh it in yield up to 60 or 70 buaheU per acre in « nonnal year. Grain sorghum is equal to com in fattening cattle and »Imoat as good in feeding hogs, is does preswt some prdblems in harvesting and alorage. Cora acreage allotment .may be raised to close to last year. I would be inclined to reserve that right to sea] my com. Perhapis I would try grain aorgton on that S acre strip which would noratally be in com. Check up on youtself, Did yoii Inoculate all legume seed before seeding? Cleaij and treat your oat seed?

Naisliiboi» Md frienda cal«lbrat-edtiia birtlMliy^ Mrs BmaUn* Towktai:. What great joy has brought to mankind! We always like to review this event which never ga.s old for us. Wlhat is some of the evidence upon which the Be^.urreetion from the dead is based? The Chrisi.ian doctrine of Uhe Reaerrection can be a »tumbling block to fai.ih, when we allow ourselves to exalt aaid exaggerate death to a degree altogether beyond reason and Scripture. We then speak, and mourn as though death were the last law of life, but liie ii-, the law of nature. The earth was dead, it was "waste and void' iind wiUhout life ages ago. But now how the earth Uveal There is hardly a clilf too barren for nature not to hang blossomiog flowers upon it; the old earth teems with life. In ithe light of the fact it appears just as easy and natural for God to call'bade life to all mankind that has been laid to rest in the past and will be laid to rest in the future. It ia to be observed that man, \J.-.e crown of crea»'.ion is give« 10 more pain, anguish, distress and suffering than any otheir organism in the whole creation. This ihappens not necessarily alwvya because of his own fault or the fault of others. He is fac^ with this problem no matter how hard ihe may 'try to rise above the unfavorable and trying situations that, confront him at various time?. Now atfir.i, hand one might wonder why man endowed -^th such great gifts and potentialities alhouid suffer more than any other living creaiture. We are sure of course that our heavenly Father uses all sorts of meaois, and methods to discipline, correct and set man right, all of which prompts us to believe that man was created for greater things aheail of him, Man's destiny ia not reached whan i« laid to reat in the grave, but shall arise to a greater life, if so he has lived a life in accordance with God's will and ways. A verse everybody knows from memory or should know is the verse John 3:10: "o^or Uod so loved the world tlhat He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him, should not perish but have everlasting life." Uod has provided for ua all things necessary for all our pihysical needs. He is likewise deaply concerned for our spiritual needs. He iput forth Hia greatest affort and presented His greatest gift in the sending of Chriat to minister to mankind upon earth preparatory to offering His life a» a sacrifice and ransom for the sins o£ mankind. Our heavenly Father, far from being content and with a deep yearning for the redeemad souls of mankind ia craving to continue His love in t&e Life beyond, which implies that this privilege is in store for all as 'the Aipostla Paul puts it, for all who love his appearing on the day Remr-rection. What, eye hatJh not seen and ear hath not heard or ihaa entered into the ;heart of man; God has prepared for them that lova Him. Notice ihow Jesus spoke of death? When Jairus' daughter bad >ed away he told the people who had been hired to do tha mourning for the family: "She is sleeping.' There were a num^ of people there, who laugjhed at him, thinking it were fooUsh of Christ to say it. But he took her by hia hand and called her to life. When called to come as quickly as he could to see Lazarus, Jeaua said that he were sleeping by which He meant to say most likely that he ihad died. Notice ow Jesus called Lazarus to life as ha called him who had been dead four days with a loud voice: "Lazarus come out." And Lazarus arose from that sleep as Jesus likad to call it. When he met the funeral procession where tihey had carried out a young man, the only son of a widow He had iflie procession to stop and call to him as a per&on would call one from (his sleep: "I tell you, young man, ariael" How assuring of life beyond the grave are the words of Chriat spoke comfort to Mary and Martha when their brother Lazarua had passed away, when Ihe said: "I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me, though ihe die, yet shall he live and whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall never die." How very encouragingly did He speak the words: "Father, I desire that they also whom Thou hast given me, may be with me, where I am that they may behold my glory whidh Thou hast given me." We must not omit still another remark Jesus made, most likely not once, but often also: "In my Faither's house are many rooms, if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am you may be also." Indeed Christ is risen, He is risen. The stone waa rolled away. God could not suffer the Holy one to see corruption. He lives and we shall live also, after we arise from our graves. May we be ready to face the judge of all earth and anxious to go with Amen. August F. Bock, Pastor 4-H Newa The Fairfield Farmerettes mat (Saturday, March 17 in the home of Suzanne Vegors.
