Fimte, Nail In Steer's Heart Irvin Jeffery found a roofing nail in the heart of a yearling steer Tuesday when he was butchering but-chering it. The nail had apparently apparent-ly been eaten by the animal and had worked through its stomach into the upper part of the heart, making a hole in the wall of the heart that a thumb could easily be pushed into. The point of the nail was actually ac-tually inside the heart, but Mr. Jeffery is not sure that it was not pushed the last little distance as he was removing the heart. It doesn't sound reasonable that an animal could live with a nail in its heart, although the hole was there when the heart was examined. exam-ined. The animal was in excellent condition and was good and fat when butchered, and seemed in good health prior to being killed. There was no blood inside the animal which showed that even if the nail had pierced the heart it had sealed the hole up so that no blood could escape. Mr. Jeffery has the heart in hisj Ice box and anyone wishing to see it can contact him.

The reorganization of the board takes place every two years. esearch Is Backed By Polio Fund Recent success in the search for an effective, safe and permanent per-manent preventive of paralytic polio have intensified the need for March of Dimes funds to explore and exploit the findings, according accord-ing to W. J. Starley, chairman of Millard county March of Dimes. "Certainly the discoveries concerning con-cerning gamma globulin did not mean the end of polio problems," Mr. Starley said. "While they solved sol-ved some problems, they also created many new ones. The two main findings, he said were that first, gamma globulin provides marked protection of a temporary nature against paralytic paraly-tic polio, and second, it may modify mod-ify the severity of polio during the last stages of incubation period of the disease, even though it may not prevent the disease completely complete-ly if given after the infection has taken place. The three limitations he cited were, first, that it gives only temporary tem-porary protection. Thus the search for a permanent vaccine must continue. con-tinue. Also GG is in very short supply and techniques for increasing the supply for reasonable use must be developed. And gamma globulin research is incomplete. It must still be determined, det-ermined, for example, if GG will permit the mild, inapparent form of polio infection that leads to an active long-lasting immunity. Large sums of March of Dimes money must be invested before solutions to the above problems are found, Mr. Starley pointed out. "Our scientists insist that all we can reasonably hope for at this point," he said, "is that gamma globlin may be used in attempting to smother polio epidemics epid-emics in hard hit areas. The final answer will still have to be a safe and effective vaccine that will provide relatively long-lasting Immunity. Im-munity. Efforts to produce such a vaccine for widespread human use are being hopefully pursued." Scientific research programs sponsored spon-sored by the National Foundation Founda-tion for Infantile Paralysis are financed fin-anced entirely by the March of Dimes. This annual appeal is now on and will be continued until Jan. 31. 40 Tears Ago From the Files... Our files of papers of 40 years ago are fast dwindling away. There are only 16 for the year of 1912, and they begin with an April issue and then go hit and miss on to December. I have spent three years going through the old papers, and expected ex-pected to finally arrive at one in February of 1913 that would tell of the arrival of the Beckwith family in Delta. As that was a momentuous occasion, oc-casion, with our father, Frank A. Beckwith, coming as first cashier of the Delta State Bank, I thought Editor Dresser would have a long article about it. Imagine my dismay to find no paper and no mention. By peeking ahead to June 6, 1913 issue I find that we finally made the grade, with news that Mrs. Beckwith and family had come for the summer. We three children had our first glimpse of Delta at that time, after school was out In Salt Lake City. Square Dancing Friday Night There will be square dancing Friday night in Delta First ward recreation halL All square dancers and other interested in-terested are invited to attend. There will be good music, good calls, and favorite dances. Mr. and Mrs. Orlan Hunsaker spent the weekend in Logan visiting visit-ing Mrs. Hunsaker'i parents. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Morrison returned Monday from a trip of ten days In California. Parents' Day At DHS Set February 12th Twenty-seventh annual Parents' Day at Delta High school has been set for Thursday, February 12. The date was made at the committee meeting Tuesday night at the high school. As that, is a national holiday, and local business houses will be closed, it is anticipated that there will be an extra large attendance at Parents' Day. Further details of the program will be given later. Officers in charge of this year's day are Auer Jensen, president. Mrs. Fred Greathouse, vice president, presi-dent, Eva Bradfield, secretary, La-Vell La-Vell Johnson, editor, Ray and Ethel Eth-el Western, yell masters, Cecil Baker, athletic manager, and Clair Gardner and Lena Steele, campaign cam-paign managers. Snow Arrives For January Warm Weather After thirteen , days of mild, warm weather to begin 1953, a snow storm arrived early Wednesday. Wednes-day. Even the snow storm was warm, with the thermometer at 31 degrees minimum. About 4 inches of snow fell in the Delta area with .30 precipitation. precipita-tion. This is the first precipitation since Jan. 1 and before. In fact, from the Deseret weather observer reports, the last was Dec. 22, with .02 precipitation. Quite a long, dry spell! Minimum temperatures during the last week were from 14 to 36 degrees, and a maximum was 64 on January 9. Car Wrecked In Canal Jump In the small hours Sunday morning morn-ing Norris Bidgood, 16, tried crossing cros-sing the canal east of Delta without with-out using the bridge, as he was driving home. The car nearly made the jump, but not quite, which resulted in a badly wrecked car. Norris was bruised and shaken, but no bones were broken. : Local Farmers Speak Well Of Wheat Grass George Talbot has a lot of wheat grass on his farm. When he first came here from Idaho about 14 years ago, he planted 14 acres of bromegrass and alfalfa and crested crest-ed wheat gTass. He says of it, "The crested wheat grass hasn't done much, but every year I get one good cutting of alfalfa- brome grass hay, then let it go for seed. I get a good crop of seed. Then afterward I have right good fall pasture. Of course, a lot of grass goes through the thresher with the alfalfa.but that makes good feed." Wells Robison likes tall wheat grass. "The harder it is to kill, the better," he says. "If it is worse than white top, so much the better. bet-ter. Personally, I would rather have 80 acres of tall wheat grass than the best range permit." Sam Hales, who has Angus cattle cat-tle out on his North Tract farm says, "My trick to get organic matter back into the soil is to turn part of my farm into pasture." pas-ture." Mel Sharp expressed his opinion opin-ion this way, "Nothing will make feed like a fence." When men speak so well of grass, there is probably a good rea son. If they don't recognize their words, at least I got the meaning right, and I mean well. That may be a little reassuring, especically when you remember having heard of the bounder who always exaggerated. exag-gerated. When his neighbors jumped him about it he moaned, "I know I exaggerate, and when I think of H, I weep barrels of tears." Annette Rawlinson, 5-year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Rawlinson, is recovering at the Delta hospital after an appendectomy appendec-tomy Jan. 12. Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Lambert spent several days in Delta this week on their farm after spending two months in Stella, Neb. They are leaving now for a month or longer long-er in Long Beach, CaL, and will return for the spring farm work. Mr. and Mrs. Lee McAllister and Mr. and Mrs. Max Bennett made a trip to Pioche. Nev, Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Al Willden, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Willden and Mr. and Mrs. Heber Wilkins were In Eseal-ante Eseal-ante Wednesday to attend fnueral services for their niece, Mrs. Leona Monroe. Volume 43 Number 29 Cow On Highway damages Car It was 3 a. m. Sunday when Mr. and Mrs. Joe Ellis, on their way to Las Vegas, Nev., ran into a cow on the highway atLeeds. So their trip is postponed while they wait for car repairs. They were going to Las Vegas to bring home Mrs. Ellis's mother, Mrs. Evelyn Larson, who has been visiting there. They were not travelling very fast at the time, as they had been ridnig through several herds of deer. Then the cow came onto the highway and Mr. Ellis was unable to avoid the animal, which was killed. Mr. and Mrs. Ellis returned next day by bus, leaving the car to be repaired to a cost estimated at $400.00. Odd Accidents Crop In 1932 For those who are upset by a feeling that things aren't what they used to be, the National Safety Counciu has this reassurig word: unusual accidents are going on just as usual. If fact, the Council is able to report that odd accidents not only on-ly are continuing to happen, but they are happening the same old ways. The Council's annual roundup of freak squeaks shows that in 1952 animals were still shooting people and causing traffic crashes . . . . folks stillwere falling fantastic distances dis-tances out of windows and down cliffs, and walking away from the accident .... and safty experts were still getting hurt doing what they tell other people not to do. For example: Julius Monroe was awakened from his sleep in Baltimore, Md., by a sharp pain in his right hand. He looked over to a chair, and there was his pet rabbit moodily staring down the sights of a .22 caliber rifle. Monroe charitably figures the rabbit hit the trigger accidentally. But a pig in Lueneburg, Germany Ger-many had a clear motive of self defense for shooting a butcher who was trying to kill it. As the butcher knelt beside the pig to finish loading his gun, the pig sprang up and struck the trigger with a hind leg. The butcher was shot through the knee. You can imagine the surpiise of Mr. and Mrs. Milo ft. Ewing of Denver when a 1300-pound cow alnded kerplunk on the roof of their car as they drove along. The bovine bombshell had escaped for the stockyards and, fleegin from tow cowboys, elaped off an overpass onto the Ewing car. Casualties: Cas-ualties: one dead cow, two frightened fright-ened and bang-up people, and a badly battered car. Each year a bumblebee cracks up an auto not by driving it, but by buzzing Into the driver. This year it happened in Elko, Nevada, and the victims were ..I .r . : I 1 i.t . ituuoipn R.osic, rus wue aim m ' mother. Kosic did what came naturally na-turally when the bee flew in. He swung at the instruder, forgot, to steer, and the car turned over three times. But while rabbits and pigs and bees were causing accidents, a dog saved a child from serious Injuries In-juries in a five-story fall. Six-year-old Louis De Rosa slipped while playing in a hallway of his family apartment in New York City, and fell down a stairwell. Five floors below he landed on the back of a German Shepherd dag, named Prince. Neither dog nor boy was badly hurt. But the champion distance taller tall-er in 1952 was 10-year-old Kenny Wright, Jr., of Campton, Calif. Kenny was playing on top of a 1.500-foot cliff near Lake Arrowhead Arrow-head when he slipped. He fell 200 feet virtually straight down, landed on a nearly vertical rock-slide, rock-slide, rolled and tumbled down the slide for 1,000 feet, then took another an-other drop and roll before reaching reach-ing the foot of the cliff. He didn't break a bone. A real hardy kid. Births This Veek... To Arjaan and Elaine Webb Dekker. Hinckley, a boy, Jan. 8. To Elw:n and lx:s Iversnn Dut-sn. Dut-sn.

Facts You Should Know About Television Sets Things you should know about the purchase and servicing of television tel-evision sets, presented as a public service by the Radio-Television Manufacturers Association and the Association of Better Business Bureaus, Bur-eaus, Television is probably the nearest near-est thing to a miracle that most of us will see in our lifetime. It can bring drama to thrill us.music to soothe us, sports and variety shows to entertain Us all in the comfort of our own homes. A television set is also a commodity com-modity when you're buying one or having one serviced or repaired. Amazing as they are they are sensitive sen-sitive instruments, and they have limitations. Because of some misunderstanding mis-understanding concerning these limitations and concernig the proper pro-per method of approach to the pur chase and operation of a television receiver, the Radio-Television Man ufacturers Association and the Association As-sociation of Better Business Bureaus Bur-eaus have put out this article. Its purpose is to give you the basic information you should have if you are shopping for, or already have, a television set. NOTHING as wonderful as television tele-vision is simple. Don't get the idea, however, that because a television tel-evision set is an intricate thing, it is also a constant headache. Although Al-though it will usually require servicing ser-vicing more frequently than other appliances, there are certain rules that you can follow, which will give you better results with your television set, and help you avoid complications. Let's assume that you are just considering buying a receiver and follow through from there. Background Facts First of all, here are some background back-ground facts you should know: Television waves are more limited lim-ited than radio waves. They travel In a straight line, instead of following fol-lowing the curve of the earth. This means that ordinarily your reception would be limited to those stations that lie between you and the horizon. Most people have little difficulty difficul-ty in tuning in local channels. How good your reception of each of these will be depends in part on your specific location with respects to the station. But even in- the most unfavorable spots you will probably be able to get some stations. sta-tions. To put it plainly, your location affects: 1 The number of stations sta-tions you can get with 8 rtandard installation. (2) The quai'ty of reception you can expect lrom each. 3 The auxiliary equipment you may need for best results Whether extra equipment will be needed usually cannot be known until tie set is placed in your home. By the way, auxiliary equipment equip-ment found necessary by the installer in-staller is subject to extra charge. REMEMBER Reception can vary from block to block, from house to bu? and even from one side of th-? r vim to another! Type of Interference The images on your screen may be affected bv several thintrs. (V Atmosphere eond'Uons, a mount- '' - January 15, 1953 .Mark E'axton Xamcd President Mark Paxotn, Senator from the Beaver- Millard district, was named president of the Utah State Senate in their first meeting Monday morning. morn-ing. Senator Paxton is the first Republican president of the Senate since 1931. Mr. Paxton has served both in the House of Representatives Representa-tives and in the Senate, and is well qualified for the position pos-ition he now holds. It is a distinct dis-tinct honor to him, and also to the counties which he represents. rep-resents. Hehekahs Name IVew Officers Installation of new officers was conducted Jan. 7 in Betah Rebe kah Lodge No. 47, I. O. O. F., with Mrs. Phyllis Munster officia ting. Now In office are Anne Broderick Noble Grand, Lola Mankin, Vice Grand, Mabel Welton, recording secretary, Phyllis Munster, finan cial secretary, and Louise Bogh, treasurer. Right support to the Noble Grand is Olive Allred, with Inez Kelly as left support to the Noble Grand. Fern Foote is right support of the Vice Grand, Beryl Brush, left sup port of the Vice Grand. Idonna Gavin is warden, Faye Steele, Conductor, Ethelene Brun son, chaplain, Lena Peterson, In side guardian, Thera Davis, out side guardian, Ella Dean Corbett, musician. According to Mrs. Broderick, the Rebekahs will hold lodge every Wednesday from now on, instead of twice a month. tain, or even a tall building be tween you and the transmitting station, might adversely affect your reception or reduce the ef fective range of your receiver. 2) "Ghosts" (multiple images) are generally caused by your loca tion and surroundings. Sometimes they can be completely or parti ally eliminated by antenna ad justments, or by auxiliary antenna equipment. Sometimes they can be corrected on some channels and not on others. (3) Passing automobiles or air planes may mar your picture mom entarily. Sometimes this interference interfer-ence can be reduced by locating the antenna away from the street side of the building and using lead-in wires. However, don't ex pect 100 percent elimination. 4) Your reception can also be affected by other television sets or antennae, by nearby diathermy machines, or by other electrical de vices. Sometimes the interference can not be corrected. This doesn't mean you have a "lemon." Tele vision technicians can do wonders but they can't alter the essential characteristic of, say a skyscraper. This is why your next door neigh bor may be able to get some chan nels better than you can. In any case, if you have trouble with your reception, the sensible thing to do is discuss it with your retailer or service company or tel evision repairman. That way you will find out what, if anything can be done about it Since each case poses individual problems, each must be handled separately, and will probably involve extra char ges for parts or labor.
