LUNCH MOOCHING GOT HIM IN THE END Ortonville.---For many years~ a local meat dealer has looked askance at the practice of an otherwise excellent customer who daily surveyed the cold meats, took a generous slice of one or another, and munched contentedly on his way. So when the habit brought discomfit in the end, the butcher felt it only just retribution. The discom- fitted end was on the customer's right thumb. For with a flourish he recent- ly took off not only a generous slice of bologna but of his right thumb, too. State Temperance The Shield Each Member AAA Farm Program To Get Notice The schedule for AAA Committee- men elections for Sibley County was announced thfs week by Reinhold Vorwerk, chairman of the county AAA committee. Each member of the AAA Farm Program will receive a notice indicating the time and the place for his township meeting. In each community, farmers will elect three regular committeemen and two alternates. Elected at the same time will be delegates to a county convention, to be held later, where a county ~ommittee will be elected for the coming year. The AAA chairman said s approxi- mately 2,000 farmers are eleigible to cast ballots in community elections. This number includes all farmers who are cooperating in the agricultural conservation, flaxseed payment, su- gar, or crop insurance programs. Discussing the role of community committeemen, Mr. Vorwerk pointed out that soil and water conservation will continue to loom large among AAA program objectives. Under next year's program, fttnds will be al- located to each county, and committee- men wilt have more responsibility in helping their neighbors to round out Council Of State To Meet, Dec. 4-5 Dates are set for the Annual State Council of the United Temperance Movement of Minnesota. The date is i December 4th. Educational work, county organizations, legislative and election activities, annual reports, election of officers will be a part of business of the meeting. These ses- sions will be held in the First Coven- ant Church, (7th Street and 8th Ave. S.) in Minneapolis beginning at 9 A. M'Also on December 5th, there will be a meeting of County Temperance Or- ganizations in the First Covenant Church in Minneapolis. This will be a delegate body made up of official ~tives of the County Tem- perance Organizatiorf~ throughout Minnesota. The whole day wilt be oc- cup/ed with a discussion of County Temperance Organization activities. soil-building plans for individual farms within the scope of approved practices. This is only one of the programs for which committeemen have a great responsibility. Village Clerks Will Be Able To Call A Spade A Spade Village clerks in Minnesota will now be able to call a spade a spade in prepazing their annual.fimmcial state- ment for publication. They will all express the same ac- counting language and terminology in portraying the transactions and finan- cial condition of their respective vil- lages for the year. At least that is the hope of Richard A. Go]ling, State Public Examiner, who, adhering to a law passed by the 1945 Legislature, prescribed a Village Financial State- ment form and today is mailing it to 653 village clerks who represent vil- lages with populations ranging from 27 to 16,000. "Through the use of this new form," Golling said, "our villages that now receive and disburse approximately $16,000,000 annually will draw abreast of the improved standards advocated for reporting municipal affairs." The form which is designed to per- mit a uniform classification of all re- ceipts and disbursements for the vari- ous funds maintained "will supplant," according to Golling, "the miscellane- ous methods tolerated under the for- mer law." "A village taxpayer can now easily," he said, "ascertain the source of all village funds and by a grouping of disbursements in the statement keepi an eye on the cost to him of eachI function or branch of government ad-] ministered by his village officials."

Which wouldn't necessarily be news were it not for the fact that Mr. Troop is 91 years old and has made the same trip by many more primitive convey- ances. And at Dexter, near Austin, 300 residents gather at a big party with music and speeches and food and everything, to pay homage to Dr. George J. Sehottler, who has devoted 49 of his 75 years to the health and welfare of the folks of Dexter. Heavy Snowfall Covers This Area Winter's wonderland put in its first real appearance of the present winter, when citizens awoke Tuesday morning to see the ground covered with a man- tle of snow. Clinging to trees, shrubs and roofs the picture of the landscape was an inviting one. Along with all this beauty, however, came the chore of cleaning the sidewalks. The snow- ~all, according to measurement taken at the canning f, actory, was 4 inches. The precipitation measured .38 of an R. Sylvester and their families: She reports that her grandson, John D. Wessel is spending a 21 day leave with his parents before being re- assigned to new duties in the Navy. Notice To Property Owners The winter snows, which are per- mitted to remain upon sidewalks, create a hazard which one can at least partially remove by seeing that sidewalks are shoveled clean within a reasonable time following each snowfall. Snow permitted to remain upon the walks soon becomes packed and,ci~eates a slippery and dangerous path for the pedestrian. Property owners are hereby notified that all walks, either alongside resi- dence, business places or vacant lots must be cleared of snow, If the property owner fails to act, the city will t~ke action, in accordance with the city ordinance governing snow re- moval, and the expense will be assess- ed to such property affected.

Victory bonds. however, are not on sale for the purpcee of self-praise.

L. Get- ten, production manager for Land O'Lakes Creameries, Inc. "At one time many questioned the advisability of increasing the processing capaci- ties for dried milk and its derivative products. Now we know that the diversity provided by this type of milk manufacture assures future outlets for quality milk." The basis for Getten's optimistic statement is the volume of orders re- received by dry milk plants throughout the Northwest for all types of milk solids. Getten named a few of the products being shipped to domestic buyers: dry whole milk, non-fat dry milk, dry buttermilk, dry high acid buttermilk, and dry ice cream mix. To further diversify the output of many of these plants the Land O'Lakes official mentioned other milk foods which could be produced: pasteurized whole milk, condensed whole milk, condensed skim, 40 and 50 per cent cream, pudding mixes, and dry milk- drink mixes. sign market for dry milk products that may grow to large proportions as manufacturing facilities in other countries are improved." Getten also expressed the belief that because of the nation's facilities for handling dry milk the price on dairy products would be more stabi- lized throughout the year.
