Plans for the Gruis Recreation Area are starting to take shape and some progress is being made. • We met wLth the golf course architect from Des Moines last week and should have a firm bid on the construction of the course in the very near future. We were also able to contact a young architecture student at I.S.U., and he and his wife were up last weekend to check out the feasibility of using the barn on the site for a clubhouse. Several 'barns have been remodeled and have proven to be very attractive. An over-all plan for developing the area has been drawn up, and in .time will really be an asset to the area. This isn't just a plan to build a golf course and clubhouse, but will have a very wide range of recreational activities. Eventually there will be tennis courts, camping, pic- nicing, horseshoe courts, ball diamond and other activities. Of course the golf course and chibhouse will toe the first to be developed, but eventually there should be something out there for everyone. The first of a series of public meetings, designed to inform everyone of the goals of the Tri-Counity Recreation Associ- aton, will 'be held Monday, Dec. 2 in the basement of the Farmers Trust & Savings Bank in Buffalo Center. The meeting will start at 8:00 p.m., and everyone is invited to attend. With present cost estimates and projected income, it is going to be necessary to raise about $33,000 before too much m6re can be accomplished and determine how much interest there is in the project. This is a lot of money, but ,tihe area to be served is quite large and there seems to be a lot of interest. However, to accomplish the task, it is going to take the cooperation of many people in several area towns. Since I have been in Titonka I have Seen several community projects that seemed quite remote, both here and l n surrounding towns, but with a lot of people pulling in one direction, they have been afcomplished; and In And Out Of Farming Is Conference Subject Farmers, bankers, lawyers accountants, vocational agri culture instructors, and others are invited to join the Iowa State University Agricultural Economics Dept. for a two-day conference on the problems of getting into and out of farming, according to John Ley county extension director. "Entry-Exit Problems In Ag riculture" is scheduled to be held at the ISU Memoria Union on Dec. 10 and 11. The program will feature experts in agricultural finance, econom ics, and law. Topics to be dis cussed include financing the young farmer, rent and lease agreements, installment con fracts and mortages, retiremen plans, partnership and corpor ations, estate planning, and others. The information will ta presented by several ISU exten sion 'specialists, as well as out side speakers from the financia and legal professions. For registration informatior and a copy of; the program write to Extension Courses an Conferences, 111 Curtiss Hall ISU, Ames, Iowa 50010, or cal (515) 294-6222. A week ago Saturday evenini visitors in the home of Mr. ani Mrs. Layton Nonnweiler wer Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Hallet of Forest City. 40 DAYS Without A Fire I feel itihis project is also feas ble. To raise this money, share i n the association will be sol for $100, and for the golfers they will receive a $10.00 dis count on their annual member ship each year.

The ISU team had seven runners, the first five counting in the team score. The 6th and 7th runners acted as "pushers", by pushing up the score of the other teams. The 7th runner on the Iowa State team was Jean Mayland, a sophomore. Jean finished 40th in -the nation, with a course time of 16:40. This is her first year of cross country with the Iowa State team.

Edith Hagen It was a non-conference evening, but the Titonka Squaws and Indians went all out for victories as the girls were defeated 54-29 and the boys picked up a 64-46 victory. In the opening contest, the Squaws worked hard and were in the game through most of the first half, but the ball just failed to drop for them and they tried ,t.o play catch-up ball Don Budlong Attends Meeting In Chicago Don Budlong, cattle feeder from Titonka, has returned from Chicago where he and other agriculture spokesmen met with leading national consumer representatives to explore ways of establishing' communication between farmers and consumers for the benefit of both. The first meeting of the Agriculture Council of America's new Agriculture-Consumer Action Panel was held Monday, Nov. 18 at the Sheraton O'Hare Motor Inn. "This is a big step forward in a long-range effort to get better understanding so .the two groups can work together", Budlong said. "We've been pictured too often as if we're enemies when no one could have more in common than the farmer and the consumer." Representing the producer's point of view were Midwest participants in ACA's "Let's Keep In Touch" program recently introduced in Illinois It was a wild night in Ring- reserve forwards came in and sted Tuesday as the Titonka basketball teams invaded the local gym and put on quite a show! Alt/hough the Squaws dropped their third game, they had their best offensive performance of 'the season as they fell 78-60, and the Indians picked up a 64-59 overtime victory. Once again the Squaws' opponents completly dominated most of the first three quarters as the Danes built, a 20-6 lead after one period and moved out in front 43-19 at the half. With less than three minutes to play in the period and the Squaws trailing 56-23, Titonka's cut the margin to 61-33 at the buzzer. The reserves remained in through the entire final period and hit for 27 big points while holding Dhe Danes to 17 as they fell 78-60. Vanessa Follman led the local scorers with 15 points, Shirlee Madsen hit for 12, and Bonna Tapper and Brenda Meyer added 10 apiece in the 2-2 Senator Priebe Elected Ass't, Majority Leader Senator Berl Priebe was elected assistant majority party leader for ,the coming session of the 66th General Assembly icn Des Moines, which convenes January 13, 1975.

Although the outcome of the game was decided early, the Squaws continued to battle as they suffered their second defeat in as many starts in the young season, 54-29. K. Bahling FT FG TP 2-2 5 12 S.

Things didn't improve much in the second quarter as the Indians managed to put only 10 points on the board while the Eagles were adding 11 to close the gap to 22-20 at intremission. Lakota committed only three fouls in the half and the "Big Red" failed ,to get an opportunity at the charity line while the visitors made only 4 of 11 attempts. Tyke's defense stiffened in the third period and their shooting percentage improved as they moved into a 38-28 lead after three periods, and then played the type of ball fans had hoped for during the final eight minutes as they dumped in 28 points and turned the game into a route as they picked up the 64-46 victory.

Car License Plates Go On Sale December 2nd The new Iowa license plates will go on sale at the office of the Kossuth County treasurer on Monday, Dec. 2. The plate fee on some 1972 autos and most 1973 and 1974 models has been increased. Because of the fee change, owner of 1972, '73 and '74 model automobiles should not use the fee shown on their present registration to mail for 1974 plates, If owners of these models want to mail for new plates, they could make their check payable to the Kossuth County Treasurer and leave the amount blank. All mail orders should describe the auto .that would certainly push for a n improvement in the IPERS system. Another priority is tax reform with more help for the growing number of our elderly and low income people. An attempt will be made to go to a "post card" type return on ,thc state inccime tax. This would" be a percentage of the Federal return. There will probably be legislation in regard to land use or a critical areas bill until a state water plan can be adopted. There will be some changes in the eminent domaii laws and also in the implied warranty laws in regard to live stock. In the coming session .there will probably be more state aid for local schools with hopes o reducing local property taxes Another priority will be legis lation in regard to politica campaign spending limits, etc There will also probably be some legislation on transporta tion with some hopes of returning the $30 million to the road fund which was taken out by the last session of ,the Iowa legislature. There is a real problem with road financing Boys Play Catch-up The Indians got off to a good start in their game as they pulled ahead 6-2, but seemed to ack the "killer instinct" and went for over four minutes without scoring as the Danes pulled into an 11-8 lead at the end of the quarter. Tyke trailed by as many as 7 in the second period and were still down by 5, 27-22, at .the half as they were out-hustled, out-rebounded and out-shot by the smaller Ringsted quintet. With 4:23 to play in the third period, the Indians regained ,the lead 30-29, but were trailing 43-39 at the end of the quarter. It was an uphill battle through the final eight minutes, and Tyke regained the lead 52-51 witlh 2:43 to play. The game was .tied at 53 and 55, when Tyke got the ball with 1:13 remaining. They stalled until there were just 13 seconds; left on t/he clock and called a, time out. Jeff Loeschen was fouled with 5 seconds remaining and made both shots to take a 57-55 lead. With Tyke's defense playing deep, a desperation shot from just across the center line ripped the bucket to send the game into overtime. Dean Medhler hit the first bucket, but the Danes came and Sen. Priebe felt it was a right back to knot the score. the present 1972 plate number and the year of your car. Postage will be 50c on all types of plates. Mobile home owners making- less than $6,000 per year and either disabled or 65 years of age or older may qualify for a lower rate of mobile home tax by signing a form in the treasurer's office. Car and truck owners have until January 31, 1975 for storage of plates. mistake to have taken this money in the first place and had opposed it. There will be a push by the Democratic Panty to appropriate additional funds for Four Local Men Attend Des Moines Tax School Attending the Iowa Bankers Association Tax School in Des Moines, Nov. 25 and 26, were Allan Boyken, Neal Boyken, Harold Gartner and Bruce Kitzinger, all of Titonka. Instructors from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security 'Administration, the Iowa Dept. of Revenue, and Iowa State University, reviewed the current economic stabilization program, changes in the federal .and state income tax laws, 1974 amendments to the Social Security Act, farm tax returns, and other subjects. SENIOR CITIZENS TO HAVE POT LUCK DINNER DEC. 2 The Titonka Senior Citizens will have their monthly pot luck dinner at the Center at 12 o'clock noon, Monday, Dec. 2. Bingo will be ,the entertainment, and each member is asked to bring articles for prizes. ment of imore doctors in Iowa towns. These are a few of the major priorities that the Democratic leaders hope to accomplish and certainly there will be a real effort made to cooperate with the Governor for the good of Iowa. There will be a complete report of the treasury made to indicate the surplus and exactly what funds are now committed out of the surplus at this time. Sen. Priebe feels this will be a very good session for "people" legislation. Hot Lunch Menu For the week of December 6 Monday: Chicken noodle soup, green beans, cheese sandwich, apple sauce, milk.
