Mettler was born at Elmwood, Illinois, July 31, :1884 and departed this life January 7, 1967, in the Repub- lic County ttospital in Belle villa, Karts., at the age of 82 years. As a young man, lie worked with his father in a grocery store and coal yard. In later years, his brother, Isaac, and he farmed in western Kansas until he moved to Baxter Springs, Kans. to work as a drill rig ope|'ator in the zinc: mines and care for his ailing parents. During the last years of his life, be made his home with his sister, Jennie, in the summers and with his broth- er, Howard, in the winters. He was a member of the Ma- I'm Too Old To Join N.F.O. By Ike Eilert In the obstacle course of fur- thering the NFO program of fair prices one of the stand-by excuses for not joining the or- ganization is, 'Tin too old to join." lit referring to the full time farmer's age we find the average American farmer is around 58 years old. Using the part time l'arnmr data, the age limit drops a few years. Any farmer, who is producing and l)latls to t)roduce any in the future, is not too old to join. In order to price our pro- ducts we must group a large (.,llOUgh amount of these pro- ducts under one label to make the processors have to bid for the|n. By holding enough of the total volume away from the I)rocessors, we create a S(';l/'Ci{y atl(t ()lily than can WU get the price we previously put on the price tag. Without i a need I)y the processor for our products at price tag is ab- so utely meaningless. As 1 said before, the age of the full time farmer is about 58 years. Also, these older far- merE are the ones who got well established in the second World War and really forged ahead during the Korean con- flier. Quite naturally, these are the farmers with a .';izeable the buyers (:pine to us. Looking back on your years of farming, nearly all of you older farmers have been well compensated for your time in regard to the better things of life. You can't buy fresh air and health. You have enjoyed indel)cndence in your deci- sions not present in the work- ing man's life. Your living close to nature, enjoying little things like a covey of quail in 'your yard or a mocking bird on your chinmey is beyond the Use of ZIP Code will make it easier to mail packages at, tar January 15, Postmasters Lylc E. Rafferty of Man- kate and Bruce Corrick of Es- ben said today. New rates and a new sys- tem for identifying parcel post zones will go into effect on that date as provided in legis- lation signed into law by Pres- ident Johnson on September 20, 1966, the Postmaster point- ed out. The rate increases will av- erage about 10 cents a parcel. Starting July 1, the law pro- vides for a series of size and :weight increases on packages mailed l)etween first-class of rices. Mankato and Esbon are 3rd class offices. The size and weight increases will be in five annual steps, the last coming on July 1, 1971. Use of ZIP Code in the re cipient's address will enable the sender or a mail clerk to quickly determine the proper zone, and thus the rate, for, the package. The zones will be based on the distance a parcel travels between the 552 sectional centers in the coun- try. By consulting a simple chart, which is available at all post of ices, the zone can bc readily identified because the first three numbers of the ZIP Code represent the sec- tional center. This replaces a method in which a directory often had to be consulted to locate the proper zone for each of the nation's 33,000 post offices. The new rates will range from 40 cents for a three- pound parcel destined for lo- cal delivery to 60 cents for the same parcel to zone 3 (150 to 300 miles) to $1.05 to zone 8 (over 1,800 miles). The new zoning method will also apply to air parcel post, catalogs and to publishers who pay zone rates on the advertising portion of their periodicals.
