Rohlf of the county A.S:C. office. Payments now being_ made were | earned on hiarketings of wool and unshorn lambs during the year from April 1, 195P through March 31, 'I960. On shorn wool, the' rate ot payment is 43.2 percent of the grower's net proceeds from, woo) marketings, or' $43.20 per $100 received. For unshorn lambs, the rate is 75 cents per hundred-weight for the liveweight of lambs sold. " There is a deduction from each grower's payment to provide q fund used in' promoting the sale of wool and lambs. This deduction, authorized by growers in a referendum, amounts to one cent a pound for shorn wool and five cents a hundredweight for unshorn lambs. ... The "wool program, authorized by the National Wool Act, is designed . to increase the annual wool output of the United States to a total of 300,000,000 pounds. This is done by means of in^ centive payments which bring the average price received by grow-, ers for wool to 62 cents per pound. *" Payments are now being made on applications received up to May 1, 1960. The 1960 marketing yqar will continue until March 31, 1961, and payments for. mar- ketings during that period will' be made next summer. Warn Children To Be Careful Around Dogs A timely warning to children returning to school to avoid stray dogs was issued today by the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association. "Dogs and children just seem to go together," a spokesman for the IVMA said "But parents should warn their boys and girls to stay away from stray dogs because of the danger of rabies." This disease is one to be avoided for two very good reasons First, it is almost invariably fatal once it has developed. And second, the preventive treatment is painful and expensive. Tuesday, Au0. 16, 1960 Algona (la.) Upper DM Monei-S Rabies is transmitted by the bite of a rabid animal. Many wild animals, in a'ddltion to dogs, may carry the disease. Animals can be protected from rabies by having them vaccinated by a veterinarian. By doing this, dog owners are not only protecting their pets, but they also are helping protect themselves, their children, and their neighbors against this drea« disease. But, unfortunately, all dogs are not vaccinated and they are the ortes with which we must be concernedi the veterinary group said. "So it just wakes good sense for. parents to impress on their children the danger of playing with stray dogs," the IVMA said. "It's much better to avoid them than to wait anxiously for two weeks after a dog bite to find out whether the animal was rabid." We have no quarrel with the man who has lower prices. He knows better than anyone else what his services are worth. Grethen House 1514 NO.
