are going over big in several
European countries, especially
West Germany. The demand hag
been expanding for the past few
years and the prices good. As
usual, however, competition
starts up when sales are good
and now Denmark and Holland
are matching our quality, pack-
aging and price. Poultry is still
a Sunday and holiday meat in
most countries other than this
so we may yet sell a lot of our
surplus grain as chickens, turk-

you rarely see geese on the
market here: Wonder why?

Chevy rides nice, a!! right: takes good

the ha]f of it. Torsion-spring suspension
also means longer life for the truck, extra

sheet metal and body components take less

The term "children " includes
all sons and daughters, real or

and unmarried. Children who
become incapable of self-sup-

causes before reaching the age
of 18 will still be considered chil-

Chances are you worry about
stepping up. taking an oath, and
telting your story in court. Actual-
ly, almost anyone can be an ef-
fective witness if he merely fol-
lows a few simple rules.
1. Don't memorize your story
word for word. That is the surest
way to make your testimony
sound "phony." Rather, think
over what you saw and heard so
you have a clcar mental picture
of what you observed.
2. Listen to the questions you;
are asked with care and answer
3. Give a simple, direct answer
in your own words. Don't be

tonishing ability to shrink hemor-
rhoids and to retieve pain — without
surgery. Incase after cast, white

amazing of alt — resutts were so thor-

1. If you err — and people
often do — correct yourself at
once. It you can't remember some
detail, say so. Don't bluft!
5. Tell the truth. Don't figure
which side you may help. Don't
;dcntify yourself with either side.
H. Stop when the judge or an
attorney breaks in, and don't try
to sneak an answer in before he
can stop you. What youmignt
say could end in a "mistrial. "
7. If they ask you: Certainly,
you have talked to othi r pe ipie
about the atise — the lawyers, for
example; and yes. you are re-
ceiving the hw'ful witness fee to
make up in part for the time tost
from your job.

to be a witness in a lawsuit, but

testimony may tie absolutely

gives understandable and truth-
ful testimony our law will fail to
do justice. If you are called, be
a "good" witness.
