The purpose of the home demonstration work is to inform homemakers on how they can make their home plea- sant, and housekeeping efficient. These Home Demonstration Clubs work closely with the Home Agent. The Home Agent is train- ed by the State Extension Ser- vice to interpret research and government findings into practi- cal use for Sanborn County's community members. The educational program pre- sented in each home demonstra- tion club is planned by homema- kers according to their needs and interests. Through participating in home demonstration work, families learn to apply the latest approved metbods developed by home ec- onomics research. The goal of home demonstration work is to strengthen home and family life by helping women be more ef- ficient homemakers and more ef- fective citizens in their communi- ty, state, and nation. This year's borne demonstra- tion work is based on the theme "Live Creatively". Some of the important creative adventu r es homemakers will explore are tak- ing an intensive and reflective look at today's American woman. Is she still a pioneer or an ad- venturess; how can she enrich her every day beyond being a mother, nurse, babysitter and doctor; and how can she control her emotions and become more pbysically fit? In the clothing she wears: how can she improve her wardrobe and still spend very little money, bow can she still retain her identity as an indivi- dual like Jacqueline Kennedy? In her home: how can she pre- pare good food, set the table, be a gracious hostess, and have guests enjoy themselves? There will also be a lesson on transfers of property, investments, and in- surance. These are just a few of the things home demonstration clubs will have as their educa- tional program this year. The month of September is nat- ional "Better Breakfast" month and it could not have come at a better time. Housewives across the nation are tryin to keep a- breast with household duties and have their children off to school on time with breakfast. For some housewives breakfast and school don't mix, either one or the other has to be sacrificed. It seems at every survey ta- ken on American families' eating practices finds that breakfast is the most neglected meal of the day. Yet, it is abe one meal which is the most nutritious, wholesome, and energy-building of the day. When breakfast time rolls around our bodies have been without food for nearly 14 hours. In order for our bodies to carry out the work schedule we plan for ourselves during the day. we need energy to motivate those muscles for labor. Breakfast is our body booster so why cheat ourselves and our bodies of activities we planned. A breakfast is not a good break- fast unless the meal is basically adequate from the standpoint of nutritional content. An adequate breakfast contains a protein, juice, cereal and bread. Those calories ( of the daily calorie requirement) eaten are used for work manufacture not for waste storage. The fat tissues come from foods eaten in late after- noon snacks and the supper meal. A good breakfast also provides one third of our daily protein al- lowances. The skipping of breakfast Is disastrous. A reduction of calcium vitamin C, iron, thiamine (B1), and calories in our daily recom- mended allowances result s. Snacks and eating empty calor- ies during snack breaks increase peat the 4-H pledge, ! say, 'I pledge my health to better living.' In order that I may live up to that pledge it seems necessar). that I learn as much as I can about the effect of food on my health.' Letters... Dear Editor: Last Tuesday, August 28, I at- tended with the overflowi n g crowd of 20,000 farmers who met at the "Meeting for Action" at Des Moines, Iowa. It was a great enthusiastic experieqce to be one of the grouo to witness farmer. finally building backbone to stand up, work together, and run their own industry, AGRICULTURE. Big business and big labor put their own price tag on their pro- duction and we farmers must do the same to compete and save our family type farm. At the "Meeting for Action" farmers came from the Canadian border to Oklahoma and as far west as Idaho to Pennsylvania. They represented all farm com- modities and with the feeling of sufficient strength, it was decid- ed at the business meeting fox' NFO to go to work, and that NFO start an all out Holding Ac- tion beginning midnight Friday night, August 31st and to contin- ue until processors sign contracts with the NFO. The Holding Ac tion will not affect dairy and egg products. Action with reference to those products will be begun later as the producers themselves decide. This Holding Action covers on. ly finished products from th farm" that go for processing, such as: fat cattle, hogs, Iambs and poultry ready for slaughter and all grain commodities. Feede 1 and breeding livestock are not included. We farmers are not trying tc starve our nation. We want to feed it as that is our business. But we must have our Cost of Production and a reasonable pro- fit as any other business to do it. We invite businessmen, workers and farmers to all of our meet- ings to find out what the NFO- program is. Please don't listen to the guy who knows nothing a bout NFO. Come and find out yourself or from any NFO mere. ber. The time has come for we farmers to make the decis i o I whether we operate and control our own business or let someone else run it for us. Do we want to lose two million more farmers in the next five years as we are told will happen? We need more members to make NFO a positive reality. And for the fence sitter we ask their co-operation to hold delivery with their NFO neighbor during this Holding Action until we win the battle for bargaining power. This next three week period will be a determining factor whether we will be business men pricing our production or a single decaying farm among many to hang fore- closure sale bills on in the near future. I feel that any farmer wh( markets any production during the Holding Action, regardless el what the prices may be, is cut- ting his own throat, his neighbor's and mine. Just stop and think it over! Once the farmer has hL, purchasing power back it will put unemployed back to "wor k, the small community will boom and the national economy will be- come more sound. Our whole do. mestic trouble today is Agricul. ture, and the farmer is the only one to blame. I thank you. Sincerely yours, Sanborn County NFO Charles Swenson National Staff Organizer.

Donald Swenson met with the City Council relative to the water empounded on his land. It was decided after much discussion that Mr. Swenson should have a survey made by the Soil Conser- vation Office to ascertain, if pos- sible, where the water came from and if any part of it was from the City drainage system that steps would be taken to correct the matter. There being no further business a motion to adjourn prevailed. APPROVED: Loren J. Tiede, Mayor. (SEAL) F. D. Richards, City Auditor. The TAXPAYER WATCHDOG By R. LYLE BARTON S. D. Taxpayers Assn. Executive Director "Less government and lower taxes encourage economic growth will be the major theme of the Taxpayer Convention sponsored by the South Dakota Taxpayers Association in Pierre September 14th and 15th. The Association is very positive in the basic belief that the only way to achieve tax relief is to have government spend less mon- ey. You cannot continue to in- crease the budget every year at every level of government and expect to come up with any re- lief for the taxpayer. The organi- zation mission is to encourage a- doption of plans to effectively curb the growing size and author. ity of government. By implementing recommenda- tions to reduce the size of govern. ment, you automatically curtail the need for tax revenue to feed the insatiable appetite of the hun- gry monster. Money left in the hands of the taxpayer, with the accompanying climate of less gov. ernment restrictions on the indi- vidual, automatically makes for a better economic climate, thus encouraging faster growth. This ]s the essence of the American success story of a continuing higher standard of living for more people. The Taxpayer Convention pro- gram will include speeches and discussions covering many areas of governmental operations cover. ing highway and road programs, welfare operations in the state, public education, and federal gov. ernment activities. Presentations will be made by many represen- tatives of government, business and agriculture covering expendi- ture trends showing the problem. Some of the corrective steps which must be taken to achieve the benefits of the Taxpayer Con- vention theme, "less government and lower taxes encourage eco- nomic growth, will be spelled out in considerable detail during the two well-filled days of the ses. sion. o FARMERS HAVE OPPORTUNITY FOR MORE COST SHARING ASSISTANCE Huron, S.D.--Farmers through- out most of South Dakota have good opportunity to participate in cost-sharing of ACP funds for construction practices such as terraces, sod waterways and dams plus fall seeding and the application of heavy chemical for is usually omitted or skimped. A good part of the answer to this problem appeared to be fear of over-weiubt, eating alone, or in a hurry. People who do eat break- fast but only a cup of coffee and a doughnut develop fatigue in the office and at home. Breakfast can be included in the morning routine. If possible a little night-before preparation can be done like setting the break- fast table, having fruit juice all ready in the refrigerator, covered cereal boxes set on the table, coffee and water measured and all the necessary pots and pans on the stove ready to go.
