Wash. 98223 Date of filing copy of notice to creditors: July 30. 1981 Date of first publication: August 5. 1981. Date of last publication: August 19. 1981 VA news The annual interest rate charged by the Veterans Ad- ministration on National Serv, ice Life Insurance (NSLI) pol- icy loans has been increased to 11 percent. NSLI coverage was provided service personnel on active duty from Oct. 8. 1940 through April 24, 1951. Those who converted this World War I! coverage to a permanent plan may obtain loans up to 94 percent of the cash value of their individual policy, in fiscal year 1980, VA made about 96,000 loans on NSL! policies. The change does not affect the lo~n interest rate on United States Government Life Insurance (USGLI) policies, VA pointed out. Interest rates on USGL! policies, which were extended to military personnel who served between May 1919 and April 1951, are set by law. The loan interest rate on NSLI policies was increased to five percent in 1971. Since that time, other investments made for the insurance trust funds have yielded increasingly higher earnings and dividends for policy holders. The increas- ed interest rate will permit earnings on policy loans to become comparable with other investments: The Arlington TIMES - Wed., Aug, 19, 1981 - 11 She flipped over a little red rocker By EflSe Atldns The minute I saw it. I knew I had to have the beautiful chair, It was definitely me. Or, to be grammatically correct, it was I. Perhaps I was reliving an unresolved childhood dream, How many times, as 1 browsed through the Sears catalog, had I pictured myself in the little red rocker? t could dress my doll and rock her to sleep. Maybe I'd learn how to make a dress for her. 1 could look at a picture book or rock back and forth as I listened to older people discuss politics, religion, or whatever. A red rocker became an obsession with me. And here it was, smack-dab in front of me. In the window of the furniture store. right on Main Street. It beckoned and 1" responded, i was as one possessed, "You can't afford it." my sensible self reminded me. "I know. But I'll just sit in it for awhile." t argued. "After all I don't believe in impulse buyingl" The chair. It fit me perfectly, short wheel-base and all. And it was beautiful. Not the garish enamel red as was illustrat- ed in the catalog. It was ~ refined rust- color velour. It could rock. It could swivel. "Great." I declared. I can watch my program, turn just a little and see the pot roast boiling over." I was hooked. I simply must have the rocker. It was delivered on the same day. It sat majestically in an open space between the dining and living room area, Because. after all. it must be visible from all angles. The Avon lady, an insurance agent or the minister could see it from the front entrance. Family and neighbors were offered'a viewfrom the kitchen door. It complemented the whole decor. The safe beige, green and gold of the rooms needed something to make a statement and this was the answer. It was a jewel in its setting and provided the perfect accent for an otherwise hum-drum room. Not wanting to outshine the star of the production. ! dressed in a simple little pale green outfit and settled into the luxury of my little red rocker, 1 had watched the news on television and was waiting for Fonzie to appear on Happy Days when my husband chose to pass my chair on his way to replenish the supply of firewood. Several farm facts By Tyler C. Clark For trivia enthusiasts, here are several interesting farm facts compiled by the Skagit County agricultural extension agent: A gallon of cream weighs less than a gallon of milk. To estimate the number of tons of hay in a square or oblong stack, multiply the length in feet by the width in feet and this figure by one-half the height. Divide the result by 300. The potato (solarium tuberosum) was first cultivated in the Andes of South America in A.D. 100. U.S. Agricultural exports to lran plummeted from 5415 million in 1979 to $8 million in 1980. Gains to Arab markets. however, more than offset this loss. Tractor prices from March 1980 to March 1981 increased 10 percent. During this same period the cost of component tractor parts climbed 16 percent. Maybe this explains the popular bumper sticker: "Think food is expensive? Go cheCk tractor prices." It takes the average sheep 12 months to grow I0 lbs. of wool, The top cow in Skagit County last year produced 13 gallons of milk per day for 10 months. The top cow in the nation produced 17 gallons a day for 12 months. That equals 272 glassfuls per day, The mule is a hybrid animal resulting from the mating of a jack (a male of the Ass family) with a mare.'Combinations are limitless. There are pack mules, jumping mules, coon huntingmules, and iust plain mules. A 210 lb. live hog yields just 24 lbs. of cured bacon. You can figure 600 Ibs. of hay per month m feed a mature beef cow through the winter. Everyone knows there are 56 lbs. of shelled corn to the bushel. But few people can remember a bushel also equals 60 lbs. of soybeans. 32 Ibs. of oats, 32 lbs. of Spanish peanuts. 57 lbs. of onions or 55 Ibs. of turnips. Since his recent surgery, my husband coml~nsates for his weakened condition by utilizing the furniture to hence himself as he goes from place to place. I should have been prepared for impending danger, but I was so pre-occupied with the rocking and the swiveling and the pure joy of relaxation, I was unaware that my life mate had chosen to steady himself by bracing against the top of my chair - over we went, My husband caught himself but Red Rocker and 1 landed on our backsides with a vengeance[ "Pride goeth before a fall," proved to be no comfort as I crawled to my bed where I suffered until time to arise. Chair sat there looking innocent, even arrogant as I hobbled past him to the davenport. "Didn't you break your back?" I asked him. The ruddy tone of his complexion assured me that he had come through the ordeal unscathed. Somehow, though he seemed to have lost some of his vitality. Me? I ached when 1 stood, when i sat. when I lay, I couldn't walk. sleep, nor enjoy the embrace of Red Rocker. Nourishment consisted of tomato soup until one day, Cook discovered that he could apply the same technique to open a can of chicken soup. Household help was recruited from every available source. Instead of a raid on the cookie jar, grandchildren were accord- ed the privilege of running the vacuum cleaner, folding clothes or doing a tad of dusting. My husband manned the mop and even did windows. I read everything I could lay my hands on. I crocheted a doily. Time. and doctors heal all wounds and 1 am finally recuperating. I feel alive again, The fortune cookie I received at a recent visit to a Chinese restaurant bore this admonition: Guard against heavy-handed individual. I have. Red Rocker sets safely in a far corner of the living room. Re-organization plan delayed The Unsecured Creditors' Committee and Western Farmers Association infor- mally agreed on a plan of re-organization for Western Farmers. but no actual proposal has been approved. The principal reason is tho Spokane Bank for Co-operatives must fund any plan and the bank was not satisfied with the Touche Ross report and decided to make its own investigation into the viability of Western Farmers. Another factor that will undoubtedly delay a plan proposal is the fact that Cenex, a substantial cooperative from the Minneapolis area, has now indicated a firm interest in acquiring Western Far- mars. Obviously. its investigation will take some time. although the company hopes to have-it completed by ~gtlst~.' '7~" ~. Regardless, as long as Cenex is interested, it is obvious that the Spokane Bank for Cooperatives will make no recommendations for a plan of reorganiza- tion, hoping perhaps that Cenex will make enough of an offer that it will be unneces- sary for the bank to fund any proposal, Western Farmers Association continues to show adequate margins and continues to follow reasonably closely its operating plan. It is liquidating some minor parts of its business, has completely eliminated the fryer end of its business and is selling off some stores no longer profitable. The committee feels that the company is well run and in no danger of liquidation, at least at the present time. The bank debt has been reduced from somewhere in the vicinity of $58.000.000 to below 544.000.000. which is obviously substantial progress. A large amount of this. however, comes from the sale of facilities, including the grain division. The bank continues to fund the operation of the business on a 90-day basis and it would now appear that another financing order will be entered in July to go until early October. Buy avocados, bananas, pears or cantaloupes three or four days before you plan to use them. Let them ripen at room temperature for this length of time for best flavor. Of course, this means buying fruit that isn't dead ripe. Arlington TIMES 15 Words 1 80 or Less ...
