GOWRIE, WEBSTER COUNTY, IOWA

VOL. 126 NO. 28

New film series highlights Wallace. . .

Henry Wallace in 1927 urged hybird seed


corn in Gowrie at Corn Husking Contest
Served as U.S. Ag Secretary, Vice President. . .

In 1927 an estimated crowd of 4,000 people attending the state corn husking contest in Gowrie didnt realize that the prominent person featured at the event would
become a nationally famous person.

Henry A. Wallace was in Gowrie on that day in
1927 promoting the State Corn Husking Contest which
he organized through the Wallaces Farmer publication.

Wallaces Farmer was the biggest agricultural
publication in that era. It was started by Henrys grandfather known as Uncle Henry. The Gowrie event occurred
two years before the 1929 stock market crash and four years
after that Henry Wallace, who headlined the Iowa Corn
Husking event, would be named Secretary of Agriculture in
Franklin Roosevelts Administration.

His father had served as Secretary of Agriculture
in the Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge administrations.


Farmers from all over Iowa and a few from surrounding states attending the Iowa Corn Husking contest
in Gowrie listened to Henry A. Wallace promoting Hybrid
corn. At the time Wallace talked in Gowrie only one percent
of Iowa farmers were using Corn hybrid seed.

Henry A. Wallace was raised on an Iowa farm,
and he graduated from Iowa State College in 1910, and was
an agricultural scientist, a journalist, and an entrepreneur.
Wallace formed a company called Hy-bred Corn Company, which later became Pioneer Hy-brid Corn Company in
1935. This firm became the worlds first and largest hybrid
seed company.

In 1933 only one percent of all farm land in Iowa
was planted with Hybrid seed. By 1943 nearly 100 percent
of Iowa Farm land was planted with hybrid seed.

As Secretary of Agriculture in the FDR Administration Wallace helped formulate and administer the New
Deal with included policies of control production, soil conservation, and farm prices.

As Secretary of Agriculture Wallace developed
crop subsidy and soil conservation programs that benefited
the farm program for at least six decades.

Wallace gained the trust and respect of FDR and
in 1940 he became Vice President of the United States. As
Vice President Henry A. Wallace served in many capacities

Three rainfalls help


Webster County, area
county crops, farmers

Three significant rainfalls in Webster county,
and in surrounding counties last week significantly helped
Webster, Calhoun, Hamilton and Boone County farmers,
not to mention most of central Iowa that also
experienced the timely rains.

Between two inches and 3.5 inches of rainfall
was reported in our area. One farmer had one rainfall
of 7/10ths early last week, 8/10ths a second day, and
9/10ths on Sunday for a total of about 2.5 inches for the
past week.

The rainfall came at a critical time as corn is pollinating. Iowa, in general, was a little behind in precipitation for the year, but this past week the rainfall provided a
big boost for the crops.

Volunteers make
Gowrie July Fourth
Celebration a success

What a fantastic Independence Day Celebration!
I feel like I say that every year though comments Marcie
Boerner, Secretary of the Gowrie Development Commission.

There is such pride throughout the community
for our town and country leading up to and during the celebration. The weekend was a fabulous success according
to several reports around the community also.

Certainly much of that was due to cool and overcast weather and the holiday creating a long weekend.

There were over 500 riders on the Firecracker 40
bike ride, a huge turnout at the street dance, well over 100
participants in the 5K run/walk, record attendance at the
car show with 135 entries, and an exciting sudden death
playoff finish at the golf tournament.

Several vendors ran out of food including the
firemen serving breakfast before the parade for the first
time.

Cow Pie Bingo had four board games running
(but the cow didnt want to play this year). That event ran
for more than two hours. Many families had outdoor picnics throughout town with the cool weather.

Again I have to thank the many, many volunteers that make this work says Boerner.

There are so many individuals and families that
are involved in multiple organizations and events and family traditions based on events throughout the celebration.
For example, thank you to those that make food for one
event, work at another event, AND participate in the parade! It makes for a busy weekend.

American Legion Peterson Post 431, Gowrie
Growth Group, Gowrie Fire Department, Legion Auxiliary, Xi Eta Sigma, United Methodist Church and so many
more are able to put together a solid list of events that
showcase our small town and bring in people from all over
the country.

A group of volunteers even got together on Tuesday to walk around town and pick up trash. Again, taking
pride in their community and teaching that to their children.

Be sure to check out Gowrie online at www.gowrie.org, on Facebook, and Twitter. There are several additional photos from the Independence Day Celebration and
other events happening year round.

Jamaica Continued - The Orphanage. . .



After landing in Montego Bay, Jamaica, going
through Customs and picking up our luggage, we met our
bus and driver, loaded up and was taken to the Jack Tar.
The rest of that day was spent acclimating to the tropical
heat, having left Iowas frigid temperatures. After getting
somewhat settled into our rooms and doing a quick refresher of selves we went back down to check out the seaside snack place, bar and the beach. We gave ourselves
time to clean iup, get into proper dining (not necessarily
fancy) attire and go down to the Wedding Pier where
we had evening devotions and communion after which
we enjoyed a leisurely, delicious buffet dinner.

Sunday morning we got up reasonably early
so we could have time to enjoy our breakfasts before
boarding our bus for the trip up the mountains, be shown
around Westhaven, the orphanage which we would be
serving on this trip. We were taken through the various
cottages and told about which children were in each. My
most memorable cottage of that initial day was the one
where they were cleaning up the babies for the day.

I noticed one little boy who had very large nodules which we learned were tumors with which he was
born. His twin sister had at least one too but slightly less
prominent. They were Marlin and Marlene. They endeared themselves to us immediately. We watched their
progress over the years we went to Westhaven. We were
sure, had they been in this country they would have immediate from birth attention but this was Jamaica.

As time progressed we noticed they were of
average or better intelligence and we are positive in our
country they would have learned well but we learned that
birth deformities were not too acceptable by families or
public and thus with no school teachers available to the
facility ----. Marlin especially enjoyed two things, coloring and music. He asked did we bring coloring books
and colors. Yes, we had. Marlene was more sociable
and they finally decided she was well enough or mobile
enough to go to school.

The school for pre K through around 5th grade
was just down the hill and so she eventually was sent, but,
she had to start from the beginning and was soon aged
out as she was a kindergartner at eight years of age. Marlin had not been physically able to attend.

Oh, how some of us wished we had the time and
finances to personally come for a few months at least to
teach the teachable. Marlin and Marlene continued to
grow in body and Marlin had to go to various types of
transportation as his conditions worsened. He still wanted to color and one year I had brought along a portable
Casio keyboard.

One of our group was an excellent musician/
teacher and he took that keyboard each day and Marlin played and played it. We used it each night for our
devotions but on the last day it was left at Westhaven
for Marlin. Needless to say that the next years group
learned the keyboard had disappeared. This was Jamaica.
Just a few years back after I had no longer been able to
make the trips we learned of Marlins death. But shortly
thereafter, Mission Jamaica finally was to get a visa for

Friends

What is your definition of true friendship?


Hopefully weve had friends all through our lives, but
do we understand what being a friend actually means?
Ralph Waldo Emerson said happy is the house that shelters a friend. A friend is a person with whom we may
be truthful and speak what is on our mind without thinking how should we say a certain circumstance. Someone
once said that the only way to have a friend is to be one.

There also is the definition that states a friend
is one who walks in when others walk out. And then
there was the fellow who said a friend is a person who
laughs at your funny jokes, even when they arent so funny. So, the question is do we have a friend and do we
understand true friendship?

Too many of us have to answer no. The wonderful news is that we can have an unbelievable friend
who will be our friend forever. That friend is Jesus
Christ. He is the kind of friend who does not judge us,
but loves us regardless. If you dont feel like Jesus is
your friend, I encourage you to get to know Him. Youll
never be disappointed and He will always be there for us.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your friendship.
Help us to get closer to You each and every day. Help us
realize that You will always be there for us. In Jesus Holy
Name, Amen.

Marlene and bring her to a facility in the U.S. where her


tumor was removed. Marlenes tumor, to my knowledge,
has bit not reappeared and she is now a young woman of
around nineteen or twenty who is helping other children
at the home.

Another child I noticed on the first day was
placed on a bed on her side and she was bent almost totally into a circle from head to heal. She was very small
but around five years old.

She was not there the next year. God had taken
her and gave her a whole perfect heavenly body. There
were many others that endeared themselves to us over the
years but one that grabbed me that day and each time I
revisited was Keno.

He was only around five or six and in a tiny little
red wheel chair which he couldnt propel himself but with
his big brown eyes, fetching smile and winning personality did not lack for chauffeurs. I think with one on one
tutoring Keno would have learned to talk better and perhaps read and write and even propel himself but he was
fortunate to have had a place of refuge.

All the children (and they were all children
whether a few months or into twenties) endeared themselves to us in many, many ways. When this facility
came into being with the barest of buildings and equipment, it was to be for newborns to late teens but now there
are some who will be there for life. Ill eventually tell
you more about the facility and its growth, thanks much
to Mission Jamaica, its residents and employees.

After our approximate two hour tour it was time
to go on up the mountain about half a mile to join in
Jamaican Pentecostal Church services which didnt officially begin until around noon. We were to find out
why we were encouraged to eat a hardy breakfast but that
report is for another time.

THE GOWRIE NEWS

Dave Hoover, Gowrie, was school bus


driver for 50 years in SV school district
Many memories as bus driver. . .

By Jill Viles

Its a labor of love that spans several generations. Gowrie resident Dave Hoover has transported children to school for the past 50 years. In some cases, he has
opened the school bus door to youngsters born to former
passengers.

Residents of Gowrie laud his efforts, but Hoover
is rather humble when it comes to recognition of his
achievements. His nomination as Grand Marshal of
Gowries annual Fourth of July parade has been wellreceived by the community, but Hoover chuckles that he
will participate unless he can find a way out of it.

Hoover was born in Leon, Iowa, a small community in southern Iowa. He is the eldest of two brothers.
His mother was a homemaker and his father worked for
the railroad.

His family relocated as Dave Hoover was a junior high schooler, and he attended school in Creston.
Eventually the Hoover family settled in Gowrie, and
Dave Hoover met his future wife, Delores. They dated
their senior year and both graduated in 1961.

Dave Hoover worked for the Gowrie News
following high school graduation. He ran the linotype
and set type for newspaper headings. He worked for the
newspaper from 1963 to 2005.

In 1966, Hoover was approached by the school
superintendent and asked if he would consider driving

Dave Hoover has driven school bus for over 50 years.

Dave Hoover's grandchildren love to "drive" the bus.

a school bus route in addition to working for the paper.


That Saturday he took a test to qualify to drive a school
bus. On Monday, his daughter was born, and the very
next day he went to work driving the bus.

Hoover has witnessed many changes throughout
the years. He has witnessed the district change names:
first, the Prairie View School District, then Prairie Community, next Prairie Valley, and now Southeast Valley.

When asked of the greatest changes he has observed over the years, Hoover notes students were better
behaved on the bus in previous generations. He says he
used to be able to drop unruly students off at premature
bus stops, a practice he only utilized in extreme situations, but this is not allowed in todays world.

Most are good kids, acknowledges Hoover.
Only a few are troublemakers.
On a positive note, Hoover suggests the addition
of associates on bus shuttles has made his job a lot easier.

She can watch the kids, and I can watch the
road, says Hoover. That makes things a lot safer for
everyone.

Hoover notes that eating on the bus is perhaps
the biggest problem. He doesnt like to discipline children for this practice, particularly if this is their only
chance to eat breakfast. The problem occurs when trash
is left on the bus as a result of eating.

Another change in recent years is that Hoover
picks up a lot fewer children than he did in previous years
resulting in many more miles between bus stops. Another
change involves higher seat backsa necessary change
to bring school bus seating in line with industry safety
standards. However, this poses an additional challenge to
monitoring student behavior as it is more difficult to see
students behind the tall seats.

Several of Hoovers favorite memories are the
candid things children say.

I told the children I was 73, recalls Hoover.
One child thought about this for a few moments and then
said, Youre old enough to use a cane, and youre old
enough to die. You can never know exactly what to expect from a five year old. They just tell it like it is.


He recalls another memorable experience in
which a six year old girl kept tapping him on the shoulder. Finally he asked her what she wanted to say.

My mom is pregnant! she finally offered.
Hoover chuckles at this memory.

When asked of other memorable events on the
bus, Hoover describes a harrowing incident in which a
strong gust of wind blew the bus sideways on ice, and
then tipped it into a ditch. Fortunately, the bus didnt tip
over and no one was hurt, but it was a day no one would
forget. Additionally, Hoover also notes that driving in
fog or snow can be quite treacherous. He states fog is
particularly dangerous as it can vary so much even on the
same route.

In addition to his lengthy service to bus service and the Gowrie News, Dave Hoover has also devoted much of his life to dedication to the Gowries Parks
Board. He initiated service in 1985 and has served to
present day. He notes one of the greatest challenges is
finding others to serve on the board. With terms of six
years, it can sometimes be difficult finding those willing
to make this commitment.

Jaguar boys finish week strong;


victories over MNW and SSC
June 27 - Pocahontas 2-5 L (12-11)

The non-conference matchup between conference foe Pocahontas was the first match up of the week
for the Jags. Last time Pocahontas defeated the Jags in
Pocahontas and it was the same outcome sadly as the first
matchup with the Indians as they grabbed the win with
the final score of 2 to 5. Taking the mound to start off
was Nolan Brand who was quickly replaced by Fernando
Salazar who finished the game pitching the rest of the
way, throwing a good game for the Jags, only giving up
one hit over seven innings while giving up 6 walks which
turned into runs for the Indians.

Junior Dakota Jaeschke had a monster game going 3 for 3 with a triple, while only two other Jaguars finished with hits which included two other juniors in Sam
Berglund and Ryan Gustafson. Sam made the best of his
one hit scoring the only two runs on the night for the Jags.
This was a game that the Jags thought they could win but
the defense just couldnt make the plays and the offense
couldnt get the bit hit.

June 28 - St. Marys 4-5 L (12-12)(4-6)



The postponed game against St. Marys came
back around to the Jags and it bit them in the butt as the
Panthers shocked the Jaguars scoring the game winning
run in the last inning. Starting the game was Cam Anderson, who could not complete the postponed game sent
Nolan Johnson to the mound. The Achilles heel for the
Jags was walks, too many walks lead to extra runs for the
panthers and ultimately the difference in the game. The
Jag bats were quiet again for the second night in a row
with five hits on the night. Recording a hit for the Jags
were Nolan Johnson, Cade King, Dakota Jaeschke with
King scoring a run on his lone hit. Andrew Dorage was
the lone Jag with multiple hits going 2 for 3 and plating a
runner.

It was a disappointing loss for the Jaguars as
they knew they were the better team but credit to the panthers for finding a way to win the game. This game ended
the Jags conference schedule finishing with 4 wins and 6
losses. Surprising they had a shot to win conference just
a week ago but with some losses and other teams getting
big wins it was not to be.
June 29 at Manson NW Webster 14-4 W (13-12)

With 8 runs in the 3rd inning and four runs in
the 5th, the Jaguars earned their 13th win of their season
with an impressive offensive explosion of 14 runs on 14
hits. The Jaguar explosion was spurred by the top of the
lineup with Cade King going 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and
2 RBIs. Myles Davis and Andrew Dorage were both 2
for 3 with one RBI each. Dakota Jaeschke had a monster
game going 3 for 3 with 4 RBIs on the night. Finishing
out the hit parade were Nolan Brand, Ryan Gustafson,
Mitchell Reck, Sam Berglund and Cameron Anderson
were Jaguars who all finished with one hit each, Cameron
Anderson being the lone Jaguar one hitter with an RBI.

The offensive explosion was helped by solid
pitching by Cameron Anderson pitching 3 innings only
allowing one hit, while Andrew Dorage finally saw some
mound action after recovering from shoulder surgery in
December. It was great seeing Andrew on the mound and
even better seeing the Jaguar bats come alive.
June 30 South Central Calhoun 6-5 W (14-12)

Conference winner South Central Calhoun traveled to Dayton Iowa to take on the Jaguars. A big game
for the Jaguars as they needed to prove they could play
with the top team in the conference and also to show they
can beat the Titans for postseason play. A crazy game
that saw different lead changes and the Jaguars scoring
huge two runs in the 7th inning off the bat of Andrew
Dorage to send the game into extra innings. Then it was
the Jaguars and Sam Berglund scoring the winning run in
the 8th inning on a past ball with two outs.

Starting the game for the Jaguars was Freshmen
Jackson Housken pitching 4 1/3 innings allowing two hits
and pitching admirably. Relieving Jackson was Fernando Salazar who pitched good as well allowing 2 hits in 1
1/3 innings work. Finishing up the pitching was Andrew
Dorage coming in and pitching great not allowing the Titans to gain any momentum and pitching at the right time
got Andrew a win on the season.

Leading the bats was Cade King, Myles Davis
and Andrew Dorage going 2 for 4. Cade King had 3 sto-

len bases, while Andrew had the big double in the seventh
and 3 RBIs on the day. Myles Davis was not to be outdone having two doubles and scoring 2 RBIs. Rounding
out the hitting for the Jags was Jackson Housken, Sam
Berglund and Cameron Anderson all going 1 for 2 on the
night. It was a great win for the Jaguars heading into the
long July 4th break, building some momentum into the
Post season tournament which the Jaguars will start on
July 9th @ 5:00 in Madrid as the Jaguars will face off
against Woodward Academy.

Jaguar girls finishes


third in TLC; four
seniors end career


On Wednesday, July 6 the Southeast Valley
Jaguar softball team hosted Pocahontas Area in the first
round of 3A regional softball tournament play. The Jaguars just couldnt hold off the big bats of the Indians and
dropped the decision 2-6 ending their 2016 campaign.

The Jaguars were able to jump on the scoreboard first in the bottom of the first inning. Kasey Lundberg reached on a base hit to left field and advanced to
second on a base hit by Erica Rittgers. Morgan Castenson then came up to drive in Lundberg for the first run of
the game. The Jags held the Indians until the top of the
third inning when their first batter of the inning reached
on a base hit and then stole second base. A two out single
scored the first Pocahontas run tying the game at 1-1.

The Jags answered in the bottom of the third inning when Erica Rittgers reached on a single and then
stole second base. Morgan Castenson reached on a
fielders choice and Cassidy Lambert walked to load the
bases. Rittgers scored on a passed ball, but unfortunately
the Jags left the other two runners stranded.

The Indians came back and tied the game again
at 2-2 in the top of the fourth inning when the first batter
of the inning reached on a base hit and a sacrifice bunt
moved the runner to second base. With two outs a single
scored the run to tie the game at 2-2. The Indians sealed
the deal in the top of the fifth inning with a two out rally.
A base hit, a walk, and a 3-run home run put the Indians
in control of the game with a 5-2 lead. They would go on
to score one more run on two Jaguar errors in the sixth inning. The Jaguars just werent able to get the timely hits
they needed, stranding nine base runners in the contest.

Natalie Lambert pitched well in her final appearance on the mound going 5 innings while striking
out seven batters. Morgan Castenson lead the charge offensively for the Jags going 3 for 4 with a double, two
singles, two stolen bases, and an RBI. Kasey Lundberg
and Erica Rittgers were also 2 for 4 with a run scored.

The Jaguars ended the season with a 19-11 record. Southeast Valley finished third in the Twin Lakes
Conference. Four seniors finished their five-year careers
Wednesday night. Kearsten Hainzinger was a five-year
letter winner and four year starter, first in the outfield and
then at second base for three years. Natalie Lambert was
a four-year starter and letter winner, mostly at pitcher.
She earned 1st team All-Twin Lakes Conference honors
as a pitcher in her Sophomore and Junior years. Erica
Rittgers was also a four-year starter and letter winner,
mostly at third base. She was a second team All-Twin
Lakes Conference infielder as a Sophomore and earned
Honorable Mention honors as a Junior. Cassie Zinnel
was a three year letter winner at both infield and outfield
positions. These seniors have put together excellent careers in their five years of softball. They have worked
hard to achieve much success and have made an impact
on their teams with the contributions and sacrifices they
have made. They will truly be missed.

FDR, left, is with Henry Wallace on April 15, 1935.

Henry Wallace...
continued from front page...
and was regarded as the first working modern Vice President. Wallace headed the Board of Economic Warfare and
he group supported the US war effort. He was a Good Will
Ambassador to Latin America, the Soviet Union, and China.

As Secretary of Agriculture Wallace was the key
advocate for the Agricultural Adjustment Administration,
The Rural Electrification administration, The Soil Conservation Service, the Farm Credit Administration, and the
Food, Stamp and School Lunch Programs.

George Washington Carver was a major influence
in the life of Henry A. when he was younger. He met Carver when he was six years old. Carver was a student and college of Henrys father at Iowa State Collage. It can be said
that Henry A. Wallace was an Iowan who made an impact
on Agriculture throughout the state, nation and the world.

Famous filmmaker Oliver Stone has produced a
ten part Showtime series, The Untold History of the United
States, and also a new book by the same name. The book
was written with historian Peter Kuznik. Stones documentary series and book portray Wallace as a true American
hero, and a visionary on both domestic and foreign policy.
Stones work could restore Wallaces place in our nations
history. Stones work not only describes the many achievements of Henry A. Wallace, it also delves into the what if.

Conservative Democratic Legislators convinced
Roosevelt to abandon Wallace as Vice President in 1944
and replace him with Missouri Senator Harry Truman.
Many Democrats supported Wallace and Franklins wife
Eleanor was a strong supporter of Wallace.

Some Political observers refer to his decision to
replace Wallace with Truman his, biggest blunder. When
Roosevelt died early in his fourth term, Harry Truman became president. Many Political observers at the time believe
that Henry A. Wallace should have been the Vice President
succeeding FDR as President.

How did FDRs decision affect our Nations history?

Elkhorn Eagles


Members of the Elkhorn Eagles are Anna Heatherington, Dakota Jaeschke, Emily Jaeschke, Madyson Jaeschke, Lilly
Johnson, Foster Krug, Ralston Krug, and Abbi McKinney. The leader is Amy Jaeschke.


Dave Hoover wishes to express his thankfulness
for the role of volunteers in terms of park development.
He is reticent to name specific names as he doesnt want
to leave anyone out. Additionally he wishes to thank his
board members. They include: Brad Lane, Craig Heisterman, Bruce Mc Cormack, Sara Tempel, Krystal Steck,
and Phil De Castro. He notes they are a good and active
group.

Dave Hoover admits he has had to slow down in
recent years. Its hard to ask people to volunteer when
cant go help yourself, he admits. He offers that the
towns maintenance employees are particularly helpful
in terms of a lot of work that needs to be done at the
citys parks.

Additionally, he notes the parks board also depends a lot on organizations in the community that organize fundraisers such as the Legion, and various business
owners. He loves to see the fruition of the gifts of many
others, particularly at the soccer fields.

People have furnished the land and the concession stand, and the high school shop class built the shed.
Hoover also recognizes the assistance of inmates from
Rockwell Citys work release program in terms of making the parks beautiful. He does say he would love to see
more play equipment in Laurel Park, but this is a very
expensive endeavor.

Sadly, vandalism is a persistent problem for the
citys parks.

That [vandalism] takes a lot of our money,
says Hoover.

He notes the curfew in place at the parks does
help some to alleviate vandalism. He also wants to
remind residents there is a $100 reward for turning in
names of those involved in vandalism. Its a small
close-knit community, he acknowledges. People just
dont want to turn in someone they knew. That tends to
be the problem.

In closing, Hoover would like to express his
thanks to his wife, Delores, and all the people who help
in the community. He notes that volunteers often weed
the veterans memorial in the city park, and often those
people go unrecognized, but he wants them to know their
efforts truly make a difference.


Dave worked for the Gowrie newspaper from 1963
to 2005. He ran the linotype and set type for the newspaper
headings.
