They have only been farming here four years so they are really just getting a start. The fm'm has 40 hectors (100 acres) one-third grass 'rod two-thirds cropland. Some of the cropland is still poor which mu. .be drained, and have the holes fill d before it can be cultivated. The holes were left when pea was cut out. It's still the common fuel here Most of the raceme of the farm comes from animals. 16 Holstein milk eows 130 feeder pigs. 100 lay- ing hens and last spring Freadel had 800 broilers which were sold at 8 weeks.

A new washroom with shower and sinks were installed at the back of the house, which actually used to be part of the pig pens. All of this is very important because in the middle of the afternoon of the wed- ding day all the gues,s go up and inspect the house and barns. Some women look in every wardrobe and in some of the drawers too. The wedding actually took place at 9:30 a.m. when the musicians ar- rived and were fed white wurst and beer. The white wurst is a special- ty of the Munich area. At 10:30 the guests assembled near the church to form the procession. First. the mu- sicians, the bridal couple, Erna and Alois. the parents, then all the men and last of all, the women. In the church the men sat on one side and the women on the other. The ceremony was much like ours [ except that some responses were made by the best man. He is a pro- fessional and also invites the peo- ple to the wedding. After the cere- mony all the guests {about 140) went to the gasthaus restaurant) where the festivities really began. This was about noon so we started eating. The first meal took about cuts and at 9 p.m. we had another [ damp it is mpossible to use tractors meal with potatoes, roast veal and I here so they also have three horses.  r" salads.

At 9:30 p.m. the best man thank- ed everyone for the bride and groom and for each person he thanked he read a verse about some funny thing they had done. Dancing continued until Midnight when the bridal couple left and so did most of the guests. However. the other family members and some friends stayed until 2:30 a.m. so we finally got to bed at 3 o'clock. That wasn't so bad except that I had to catch the train north in the morn- ing a 7 o'clock. I said good-bye to all the family members while they were still in bed and caught the train by three minutes. Heading Home "Day after tomorrow I leave my last host family.

If you are a familY man, l there are three 'ways you should save. unionl: By building up a cash reserve in your credit 2. By paying off your mortgage, the quicker the better. 3. By carrying adequate ordinary life insurance. ' Don't worry if you can't do all this at once. When your children are small, you will have a hard time sav- ing. You should, by all means, protect them with life insurance. Do the best you can. Meanwhile, don't overlook the insurance program of your credit union. For example, if you have an in- " sured loan of $1,500 and insured savings of $700, you have in effect a total of $2,200 insurance paid for by the credit union. So these three ways of saving all fit together. Waish Credit .Union Park River, North Dakota ? NOVEMBER 29, 1956 WALSH COUNTY PRESS, PARK RIVER, NORTH DAKOTA % .....
