Thursday, April13,1961 ----- "YOUR LIFE'S RECORD" The hometown newspaper . . . like the rising and set- ting of the sun . . . is a vital part of our everyday living. A letter to the editor of the Grundy, Iowa, Register, brings this point home. It said: "You were here over 50 years ago and you will find in the files of your paper a report of my birth. Your paper also had stories when I played football in school, when I graduated and later when I got married. You have reported many anniver- saries in our family, the birth of our four children, their activities in school and elsewhere. And in late years you have reported the arrival of our grandchildren. Why, you and your paper have written and printed a life history of our family. And why shouldn t we look upon you and because the local paper isnt self-perpetuating as is the sun. It needs your support even as the community needs its service. l A daughter, Joann Virginia, was born April 8 to Mr. and Mrs. Arthur J.
