Terrace Construction Makes Progress in County Carroll County farmers benefited from a number of federal programs last year, according to Donald H. Severin, executive director of the Carroll County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation service. Course Scheduled to Open on May 22 Opening of the new 18-hole golf course at the Carroll Country Club is scheduled for May 22, according to George Mackanos, golf professional and club manager. The construction project took about two years to complete. Until the opening date, members will be able to play the old nine hole layout. The new layout, which cost in excess of $100,000, was financed by loans from individual club members. The project involved construction of eleven new holes and revamping the former nine holes into seven. The new facility includes automatic watering for all 18 greens and tees. The new layout contains about seven acres of lakes and ponds., Several sand traps have been included in the new layout. An extensive remodeling project on the club house of the Country Club was completed last spring. That project was financed by over $50,000 in donations from club members. The project involved establishing a new dining room as well as expanding the bar area. New carpeting was installed as well as new drapes, chairs and some new tables. , The remodeling project also included a new roof and new siding and trim on the exterior of the club house. Mackanos, a member of the Professional Golfers of America, oversees the entire operation of the club. In addition to conducting the golf program and giving golf lessons, Mackanos also oversees the maintenance of the golf course and manages the club house facility. Mackanos was also in charge of the changes made in connection with the golf rnurse exoansion project. The 1975 terrace program "was very successful with 16 miles being completed and another 4Mz miles staked out ready to complete in 1976," Severin said. "Just before the end of 1975 the county committee received additional funds and approved another 11 farmers for terrace construction in 1976." Three farmers signed up for long term agreements in 1975 and three in 1974. The long term agreements allow farmers to install practices on their farms to completely control water and soil erosion and in some cases wildlife habitat and windbreaks. The length of the six agreements vary from three to eight years.

Severin noted that according to recent news articles the 1976 agricultural conservation program has been funded at 175 million dollars nationally, "which should give our ASCS office about double the 1975 AC program funds.' ' The county committee has not received the details of the 1976 AC program. The county committee is responsible for developing the program for Carroll County as to practices offered, cost-shares, and practice requirements. The ASCS office made a number of 1975 corn loans. The loan rate is $1.09 per bushel for. corn. The interest is now 7.5 per cent, subject to change every six months. The length of the loan is the last day of the llth calendar month following the month the loan was made. The drought in Carroll County was rather spotty this year, Severin noted. "It appears the farmers along the North Raccoon River, around Carroll and east to Ralston, were affected by the drought," he said. Most of the 1975 feed grain disaster payment applications came from those areas. The 1975 feed grain program provides payments to farmers for low yields of feed grains or Presbyterians Emphasize Church as 'Family of Faith' A major change emphasizing the church as a "family of faith," is part of the innovations carried on by the United Presbyterian Church of Carroll. The change unifies the Sunday church service and the Legion Sponsors Projects Maurice Dunn Post No. 7, American Legion, hosted the Iowa Pearl Harbor Survivors Association annual reunion on Dec. 7. The survivors of the World War II battle had a banquet and memorial services in Carroll. Remodeling of the Legion building, 200 E. Fifth St., has been discussed at length this year, but renovation plans are still uncertain. Last summer the Legion sponsored six boys to Boys' State in Des Moines. They are Brad Knott, Mike Bierl, Marty Meshek, Phil Kalkhoff and Kevin Hall. The Legion sponsors Boy Scout Troop 105. Ray Goreham is the scoutmaster. A Little League baseball team is also sponsored by the post. The Legion is sponsoring cribbageand pool tournaments monthly this year, Larry Chartier, sergeant-at-arms, said. The hall also has been 'used for wedding dances and by other clubs for parties and dances. The Legion is trying to remain flexible and provide the hall for a wide variety of activities, he said. The post's honor guard has the opening flag ceremonies at all Kuemper High School and Carroll Community High School games in Carroll. The honor guard participates in all Carroll parades and military funerals, he said. Officers of the post are installed in August. Cliff Bierl is the post commander, and Chuck Harms is the second vice commander. Sunday scnool into one nour beginning at 10 a.m. The "Unified Service" began in September and includes a song and story time during the first portion. At 10:20 a.m. the youngsters through 12th grade have Sunday School classes. The parents and adults remain in the Sanctuary for the sermon, the Rev. Allan M. Peterson, pastor, said. "We emphasize the 'family of faith' because the unified service provides the opportuinty for parents as well as children to come to church together and go home together,'' the pastor explained. He noted, church attendance has increased because of the plan. Other activities emphasizing "family of faith" have been by the Adult and Family Fellowship. They sponsored a wiener roast at Swan Lake Park, a family night program, Halloween Costume Party, a steak fry at Swan Lake and Hickory Hissl Camp. The theme for the annual stewardship commitment meetings in the homes of members on the Sundays in November were also the "family of faith." Other church activities are the Adult Bible Class Sunday mornings with Robert Merritt as discussion leader and the Lenten Bible Study Hours during Lent with the pastor as teacher. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Woodhouse advise the Junior High Youth activities and Mr. Peterson is the Senior High Youth Fellowship advisor. The United Presbyterian Women's organization conducts general meetings at the church and circle study meetings in the homes of members. Mrs. Roy Olson is president of the group. The Presbyterian Mens' Club has a breakfast meeting every other month under the •direction of President Eldon Umbarger. The club sponsored a landscaping project planting several trees and shrubs around the church. After several years of inactivity the Chancel Choir resumed this fall under the leadership of Mrs. W.L. Chambers and assisted by Roxanne Ohde, organist. The choir was featured on a Des Moines television station in December. Larry Cruchelow has served as clerk of the session of 12 elders and the pastor is the moderator. The session Pre-Cast Makes Farm Products The Carroll plant of Midwest Precasting Company of Orange City employs 14 full-time workers, according to'co-owner Ray Cambier. The employment rises to 24 during summer. The operation remained about the same in 1975 as the previous year, said a company spokesman. Pre-Cast deals directly with the farmer who is interested in erecting bunker silos, feed bunks or confinement systems for both hogs and cattle. Products manufactured at the plant include gang sections for slotted floors for hog confinement, three heights of bunker silos and a Combo Bunk which is adaptable to both yard and fence-line feeding. Also, there is the 48-inch yard bunk, which comes in opened or closed-bottom models. Pre-Cast was sold in early 1974 to Midwest Precasting Company. The owners said when they purchased the plant that two plants under the same management would offer better service, more variety in products and an increase in the sales territory.

The office paid in 1975 to 88 farms a total of $139,828.00 for low yield of feed grains, which in Carroll County is corn. All of the payments were for low yield. The 1975 feed grain program provides deficiency payments in event the corn market prices fall below $1.38 per bushel during the five marketing months of October through February. Because of good demand, both domestic and foreign trade, the market so far has been well above the $1.38 floor.

ESKIMO OIL BOATS LITTLE DIOMEDE ISLAND, Alaska (AP) — Eskimo boats made of animal skins were used recently to transport oil to this small island in the Bering Strait. The rocky coastline prevented an ice breaker carrying the oil from approaching the island's shores. The Eskimo craft were brought into service to haul the barrels of oil over the remaining two miles of ice-filled seas to the island. .. but we have almost >.l00 years of experience to offer you! , See JOE for ALL YOUR PAINT -WALLPAPER -ACCESSORIES BENJAMIN MOORE PAINTS Wall, House, Barn and Texture paint.
