We hear and we read much about the bad policy of spending our Money away from Homo for merchandise of various kinds. The Money so spent goes to pay tuxes build schools and churches keep up the improvements and pay the Pren Chor in some other town and Don t help us one Whit. And what is True of our merchandising elsewhere is just As True when it comes to raising Money for Church or other purposes when we employ outside Talent to come in Here and take away just As much As they leave behind and in most cases More. For instance a few months ago the american legion made arrangements with an outside concern to put on a play for two nights and the patronage was Good both evenings. The total receipts amounted to several hundreds of dollars but what did the legion realize out of it less Tihan $25.00. The great bulk of it wont away from Postville never to return. Last week the Community Church had a two night show playing to packed houses on both nights.

The woman less wedding was a 50-50 split As we Are informed. $145.87 being the share received by the Church and an equal sum going to the producing company and not a Penny of it will Ever come Back to Postville. We have right Here in Postville people is capable of staging a drama As is anyone w to has yet been Here for that purpose.
