Elmer Meyer the cheerful Carrier of Rural route no. 1. Postville has been wearing the smile of a Champion and a hero since last thursday afternoon when he and his can of Angl Worms and Oiler fishing paraphernalia journeyed Down into the Jungles of yellow River and pulled into town just before supper time with two of the finest Trout Ever brought into Postville measuring 12 and 17 inches respectively. One was a Rainbow and the other a German Brown and fat says it s just As much fun eating them As catching them. Californians Are wondering what s lie matter with Iowa summer weather this year. A letter from Gilbert Brandt of Redding. Calif., asks Why did not the Postville Herald state anything about Iowa s usual july heat Well Gilbert we just Haven t had anything but the pleasant moderate temperatures this summer in the 80 s during the daytime and quilts and blankets Are comfortable at night time. Gilbert sends along a clipping from the Redding paper which records the weather for the week of july Fel to 27. They had three successive Days of record breaking heat when the Mercury cared to 113, 111 and 111 degrees with lowest temperature for the three Days at 82. And that s warm enough for anybody. It will be recalled that some time ago the Herald reported the fact that or. And mrs. Lester Vogt of Elkader sent a radio broadcast from Berlin Germany to a group of relatives in Clayton county informing them of their Safe arrival at that port the message being Given out by the station announcer.

Vot and his voice sounded As Clear and natural As if he had been in the room at the Schultz Home. Or. Vogt is a brother of mrs. Harvey Schultz and the Vogts expect to Start Back to America about August 23 for their Home in Elkader. When we returned to the office from dinner last saturday noon we thought sure that Christmas was coming and that an agent of Santa Claus had parked in front of the Herald office with a Sample of his 1938 Christmas Trees. However on nearer approach we discovered that it was a stalk of Corn on the Side of an Auto that Loy Gephart had brought in from the we. Everman farm Southwest of Postville that proved conclusively that Iowa is still the state where the tall Corn this particular stalk of Corn was raised from Home grown seed and was not of the hybrid variety. The stalk had been Cut off at the top of the ground and towered thirteen feet and four inches toward the stars it was Tasse led out and contained three robust ears in different stages of development and we could t reach the lowest ear without climbing up on the Hurricane deck of a chair. The exhibit attracted considerable attention during the afternoon and most everybody was of the opinion step ladders would have to be used when it came to husking time.
