Kirby were visitors at the home of Mrs. Eva Havens in Mystic, July 4. We thought we had it made when we put up a recently acquired porch swing, but it turned out to be a passing fancy. Not that the swing didn't fit in with our mood to sit and rock but other road blocks were placed in our path. First 'off our youngest daughter seems to think it was put up for her personal use. Too, the granddaughter has a yen to carve her initials in the swing. As of this moment we have had little opportunity to sit and swing and relax. T Fact is, certain handicaps have developed. Seems like our youngest thinks that you must swing high wide and handsome, and as a result, our first step out the back door almost knocked us flat. There's got to be some sort of warning signal devised. Some day, when the newness wears off, we're going to be able to enjoy the swing. Until that time arrives we'll have to be content to watch two of our favorite gals perform. + Cool weather here again. Thermometer down to 50 in early morning but swings upward during the day. What's all this doing to the crops? We asked a farmer friend of ours about crop prospects and he told us the corn never looked better, that the beans were literally bustin', and the oats crop would be excellent. Hay? Tons of it. All this with the weather far from being perfect for growing. But-we have had rain. Nearly two inches over the week end. + Bill Horn continues to impress on our mind that he's a handy man around the house-particul-arily in the garden. Says the potatoes are bustin' the roasting ears poppin' and the onions de-lish. But what about the tomatoes, William? We like the I. S U. and the company personnel, but bless their little pea pickin' hearts we could have gladly given them the treatment yesterday afternoon when we got a power interruption. Tied us up tighter than a jug for more than two hours. Stopped the automatic press, froze the metal in the linotype which made us wait an additional hour over and above the blackout while we waited for the metal to heat. In other words we were stopped cold. And right at a time when every second count ed. If it had been storming and lightning and raising thunder in general our blood pressure wouldn't have gone up to such a high point. But it was a beautiful day. A day made to breeze along. And there we were doing the slow burn. Yes, there are days like that-many of them, t It mattered not to this tired soul that it was road workers dynamite that caused the trouble. It was our time to gripe. So we just griped. + We are always happy when we hear of someone hieing themselves off on a vacation, but we can't understand why neighbor Earl Brown selected roasting ear time to head for Utah. 'Not that i we're complaining for along with Paul and Arminta Pedrick we're keeping the patch pretty well trimmed. And we can report to Brownie that they were delicious. + How's the wheat doing? Edwin Boettcher tells us that his made 40 bu. to the acre. But Dick Burger up Unionville, Iowa, way takes the cake with his 50 bu. wheat. Next! THURSDAY, JULY 10, No. 21 Another Appeal In Council Asks For Slightly Higher Levy Next Year _ i It's budget time and in this issue the city presents its estimate of funds necessary to conduct the business of the town for the period from July 1, 1958 to July 1, 1959. It will require a little more tax money to conduct the business of the town this year than it did last year. According to budget figures the town spent $17,189 during 1957. The proposed expenditure for 1958 is $22,400. However, a major part of the increase will be taken care of from non-tax sources. A $900 increase in taxes is made necessary by the erection of the new addition to the town hall, and replacing some sidewalks on city owned property The county conferenre board and county board of education also presents their budgets in this issue. RADAR SPEED DETECTOR IN OPERATION HERE Wednesday night of last week Sgt. James Douglas of the Iowa Highway Patrol had a radar speed indicator in use on the road north of Moulton; This stretch of road is commonly called the local "drag strip". Mayor Dean Duley who watched the radar equipment in operation reported that no violations were noted, but several motorists stopped to inquire if they were wanted for anything. The radar device used was placed on the front fender of Sgt. Douglas' patrol car. It's beam extends down the road about 300 feet and when an oncoming car hits the beam the speed is recorded by a meter located on top of the equipment. It does little good to apply the brakes once you have hit the beam at a high rate of speed as your top momentum has already been automatically recorded. J. P. Robert Daniels was also present to watch the operation of the radar equipment. Lingering Illness Proves Fatal To Craig Daniels Carl Francis Goldenstdt son of Henry and Ollie Goldenstdt was born June 25, 1909 at the farm home near Monterey, Iowa. Carl spent his entire life at this home except three years spent with the United States Air Force during World War II. He entered the service November 4, 1942 and served his country well during the three years of service having received four overseas bars, a European, African, Middle Eastern theatre ribbon, a Good Conduct medal and a World War II Victory Medal. While in England he attended a sheet metal school at Blackpool and for six weeks worked as a combat sheet metal man, repairing planes damaged in combat. Upon his discharge from the Service, November 26, 1945 he returned to his farm home to be associated with his father with the farm work. On July 5, 1958 at 12:15 a. m, 'he passed away, after suffering a lengthy illness, at the age of 49 years and 10 days. He was educated in the public schools of Davis County.

Carl's presence with us will be greatly missed, but the pleasant memories of his life shall be remembered. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Quentin Johnson from the Wagler Funeral Home Sunday afternoon July 6, at 2:00 p. m. Interment was made at the Burgher Cemetery. School Matter To Be Made Soon The Moulton-Udell planning committee will appeal their case to the state board of education. This move was made necessary by a stalemate of the Davis and Appanoose county boards when the proposed local plan was handed to them for a decision. It will be remembered that Appanoose county's five member board voted for the plan and the five Davis county members cast a negative vote. At the meeting held Tuesday night, Charley Pettit, attorney for the local plan, gave a brief resume of what had transpired at the last meeting and explained the various courses left open. Following that school directors from all the districts represented at the meeting were caucused and it was their unanimous cision that every effort should made to keep the Moulton-Ud plan alive, and they instruc; the steering committee to p' ceed with plans for the appeal. It is understood that the action will be brought by the Appanoose county board of education and the Moulton, Udell, Wells, and Orange districts. The meeting Tuesday night was fired by the many expressions that the maintenance of a high school for the affected districts irt this area is a must, and that a consolidated effort would be put forth to see that the Moulton-Udell plan would be okayed. The appeal is now being put in the form of a brief and will be followed by a public hearing before the state board of education. The date of the hearing will be announced at a later date. Craig Emil Daniels, son of Warren Taylor and Eliza Craig Daniels, was born March 8, 1886 in Jackson County, Ohio and departed this life July 7, 1958 1PFC.
