A few days later he returned to Kleven's home for a visit carrying a big picture frame with a very old document. It had his name written in big gold letter, saying he had done heroic things that day, and had saved many people even though he had been in danger, just like a soldier. It was signed by president Franklin Delano Roosevelt. After that he never talked about it again. "His name was Ralph Valentine Tyler, and he was my friend," she said.

He talked about the origins of the two local veteran organiza- tions. Both the VFW Post, and the American Legion Post were formed after Korean War and along with some ans. the same, with about fifty members active. He reflected that many of the World War II vets are gone, and only eight attended the Veterans' Supper last Wednesday night. Phelps talked about the many ways the organizations serve the community. They used to host wed- ding dances, bingo and other com- munityevents, as well as supporting other community projects. Veterans also help other veterans by providing honor guards at military funerals; they visit the Veterans Hospital in Sioux Falls; and the Veterans Home at Luverne. They also hold services at Memorial Day pro- grams as well pro- viding a color guard at Veterans Day Programs.

Nutrition, feed-cost control are subjects of turkey production research By Sally Nell U of MN Ext. It comes as an honor, but as no surprise, that the tom turkey for the traditional Thanksgiving presentation of a live turkey to the U.S. pres- ident will come from Wilhnar, Minn. this year. Minnesota is No. 1 nationally in turkey production, with 47 million turkeys coming from our farms. The turkey industry and related businesses pro- vide 26,000 jobs here. The Dean of University of Minnesota Extension, Bev Durgan, has said that our state leads turkey production because Minnesota producers are quick to apply new research-based ideas and technology to their opera- tions. Forward-thinking entrepreneurs started the business here early on, so we now have a solid infrastruc- ture of hatcheries, farms and processing plants. Minnesota is also a major producer of crops used for turkey feed. Minnesota tur- key farmers feed $75 million worth of corn and $100 mil- lion worth of soybeans to their turkeys each year. Turkey feed is the major cost in the production of tur- keys for market. Extension, through research at the Turkey Research Unit at UMore Park in Rosemount, provides information for poultry nutritionists, assisting in the development of feeding programs. Periodically, turkey pro- ducers are challenged by high cost of feed ingredients, espe- cially in recent months. Earlier research established nutrient requirements and determined the interaction between feed ration and tur- key house temperature, with an emphasis on optimizing feed programs and control- ling feeding costs. While the price of all feed ingredients has increased, the increase in the cost of corn is having a big impact because corn is a major source of energy in the diet for turkeys. Energy content determines how efficiently feed is used; a lower-energy diet causes the birds to eat more in order to meet their energy need; high- er energy lowers feed intake. Less corn in the diet results in less diet energy because corn has the highest energy content of the grains. Poultry don't utilize fiber efficiently, so the number of ingredients that could be fed is limited. A lowered-energy diet with high fiber content will increase feed intake and per- haps slow gain, thus changing overall production cost.
