Treynor Record, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1975, Treynor, Iowa Surveying the by Em Krohn So Whos Elmer Carlson I found I needed to explain to some of the younger readers of last weeks column that he was not a popcorn eating nor an old flame of but that he was Iowas own national corn husking champion in the Then I found so little was known by our young folks about the meaning of that championship and about corn harvest in that period of the past prior to the mechanical For those who do recall cornpicking by hand remember it as a timeconsuming drudgery that went on week after from the first streaks of daylight until through the the late fall and early Backbreaking each ear that filled the cribs was picked one by Often stooping was needed to pick up fallen or down and then they were tossed into a wagon all to be scooped one scoopful at a before the work day Equipment was a winters supply of double thumbed so you could turn them over when one thumb and one side wore out cotton flannel husking and a winters supply of heavy handlotion for chapped hands and sore Also needed was a husking peg or strapped across the palm of the hand to help pull off the husk to clean the ear before it was tossed into the The wagon was a 26 high box rigged with a set of bangboards on one side some 4 or 5 feet The picker heaved one ear toward the boards without and as that ear bounced and fell into the another ear was already on its The efficient worker kept a steady staccato beat while he giddaped or whoaed his team of horses at a steady pace to keep them abreast of Corn picking was a continual test of man against the elements a test of stamina and It was only a natural result that state and national competition was started to find the Thousands would attend the national including politicians on all even presidential courting the farm The contestants at these husking meets went in for a short burst of picking time for about 40 and the champ was judged not only on the quantity but also on how many ears were left in the field and how many ribbons husks were left on the ears in his Elmer Carlson was such a A hero of the 30s not an overpriced but the envy of farm boys by their Too Little fo Eat Chicken The Krohn twins attended their first Zion chicken Grandma tried to get out of the way before the pic was but thats half the shot The Treyoor Record Boosting The Treynor

for a delicious sample and new information about Mary Publicity Chairman Strange Rumblings From Above by John Got a chance to see the followup to the CBS documentary The Guns of Autumn the other and it really made me kick myself that I hadnt seen the original In a day of complete pablum on the it was great to a program where your thinking process was actually In the first thats the purpose of any to provoke Maybe thats why there was such an uproar about the made you form an Knowing a little about opinion and its I sympathized with CBS when they got blasts from all But one thing remains very wrong with what happened on that first CBS inadvertently ran a United Fund public announcement spot somewhere in the and a lot of people thought that the United Fund was somehow sponsoring the controversial The result a lot of people are refusing to contribute to the Fund because of And the Fund had nothing to do with it When and where public service an nouncements are placed in television programming is up to the not the agency It is too bad that this spot had to appear when it but to penalize groups like the Red United because of this situation is very To my there is no need to have game preserves here for the express purpose of letting hunters in to kill the There are many farm fields with acre upon acre of land on which to chase and hunt All you have to do is ask Ive tried my hand at and I would have to say that I havent hunted or killed game for many Which is not to say I havent been on trips with other people and the just dont like to kill You know what they a duck may be somebodys When hunting is carried out according to game laws and in conformance with there are few problems that I can Lets just hope the art of hunting around here never reaches the lowness pictured on the Guns of And what about anyway You around hunting is almost conditioned into Hunting pheasants and the like is second nature in a lot of local and Im sure that the type of hunter pictured on the CBS program is not one wed run into around The Patty really has her Her lawyers say she is deteriorating mentally in Seems to me that anyone who would choose to join a violent activist spurn their rob make wouldnt have too much more mental deterioration to go The point is There are thousands of those in jail who dont have the millions the Hearsts and you dont see anybody going around crying over And theyve been in jail a lot longer than Patty will ever What about their mental states Nobody ever said jail was a resort on the She wouldnt even be in jail if she hadnt chosen
