     It is with a deep sense of regret that we announce the suspension of publication of the Kellerton Globe. The last issue of the Globe comes off the press this week, May 25, 1961.

     For seventy-three years the Globe has been reporting the news of the Kellerton area to readers - the births, deaths and happenings that are part and parcel of the small town.

     But time marches on . . . and nothing remains the same. The time has come when the Globe can no longer pay its way and unhappily we find ourselves unable to continue to subsidize the paper any longer.

      This is a sad time for all concerned, for us as publishers and for you as readers. We sincerely appreciate the fine treatment we have received in Kellerton and hope for the continued progress of the community.

New Iowa boat laws go in effect July 4

Beginning July 4, 1961, Iowa's new boat registration laws will go into effect. Under the federally approved system recently enacted by the Iowa legislature all motorboat owners whose craft are propelled wholly or in part by machinery must register their boats with the state. This includes boats already registered under the existing Iowa numbering system. Vessels now registered with the U. S. Coast Guard have until July 4, 1962 to obtain Iowa numbers.

A certificate will be issued to all registrants that must be available for inspection on the boat or in possession of the operator while the boat is in operation.

Where: Applications and numbers may be obtained at marine dealers, yacht clubs, boat shows, county clerks, state conservation officers, or from the State Conservation Commission, East 7th and Court, Des Moines, after June 19, 1961.

How Much: Cost of registration for all boats is $4.00 for a two-year period.

When: Do not send in applications before July 4. The application for all boats not now registered with the Coast Guard must reach the State Conservation Commission between July 4 and July 24, 1961. In order that boats not numbered by the Coast Guard will be able to operate in Iowa waters after Aug. 1, 1961, a temporary certificate will be issued which must be attached to the boat or in possession of the operator whenever the boat is being operated. The number on the temporary certificate will be the assigned number and this number should be placed on the boat in the proper size and color immediately.
