Funds raised will be used by the Iowa 4*H Foundation primarily ments for facility at the 4-H improve- Camping Center near Madrid, Skow said. The Iowa 4-H Founadtion came into being in June, 1949 for the purpose of holding title to land purchased for a state 4-H camp. A key objective of the Foundation is "To receive, hold and disburse funds for the best interests of 4-H and other youth it Iowa", according to Skow. Approximately 10,000 persons use the camping Center each year. Prospective donors are -asked to symbolically purchase a n acre of land at the 4-H Camp with a $125 contribution. Such contributors will be recognized as "Grantors to 4-H with a special plaque. Larger contributors will be recognized as 'Builders of 4-H" or "Investors in 4-H" depending on the level of their gift. Persons interested in supporting the Iowa 4-H Foundation with a contribution of any size are encouraged to contact one of the county section chairpersons or the County Extension Office in Algona. To be eligible, a student mus* earn a grade point average of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, and must carry a full schedule of .three courses during the 10- week term. Central College is a four-year liberal arts college offering broad program of cultural training. Affiliated with ,the Reformed Church in America, the home campus is in Pella, with branch campuses in Austria, England, France, Spain and Mexico. HAPPENINGS ON THE HILL by Senator Berl E. Prieb* This first week of the 66th General \Assembly, was, as usual, spent mostly in for|malities. The senators and representatives are all sworn in on the first day and the governor and lieutenant governor at special ceremonies on Thursday. I was a few hours late on the first day of the session because of the ON DEAN'S LIST Stephen Janssen, son of Rev. and Mrs. John Janssen of Titonka has been named to the Central College Dean's List for the fall term.

We were truly snowbound and 1 Urant to ithank the county crews for their efforts in getting We out. I have hired «ty research aide for this year. He is Charles Riekena of Forest City, a student a.t krwa University. He will be a fine addition for me this session. 1 will have a very heavy work load due to iay chairmanship of the sub^eommittee on Human Relations, along with four full-time committees, and' being one of three senators on the Departmental Rules Committee. Most legislators have four committees, some have only three, while some have ranking minority or majority seats on a committee. I will be serving as 'assistant majority eader this session and this is part of the reason for my being Burnished a research aide. I would like to comment on .he leadership as I feel we have probably more total years of leadership and experience han we have had for some fears, especially in the Senate. Appropriations is the most important committee in this ses- ion, with the chairman start- ng his llth year in the legis- ature. The president pro tern )f .the Senate is beginning her 1th year; the assistant major- ty leaders i n the Senate, one his llth year.and I am starting my 7th year in the legislature with ,two years experience in eadership in the House. I really believe we are in strong hands with the leadership in the Senate averaging 10 years of experience. The Democrats did caucus this 'first week as there were problems to work out with some of ,the people. I had always felt closed caucuses were best but after this caucus which was open to everyone, Including Republicans who attended, I am convinced open government s best. Had we had open government i n Washington as the Democratic caucus was, I don't believe we would have the problems we now have on a national level. -,. I feel, as several of the lobbyists have commented, we will be a lot tougher on the askings for appropriations in- the various departments. I predict we will <not various departmental askings by more than $100 million. I am sure the Governor will cut these ask- ings also and it must be very frustrating to see the department heads he has appointed, increase their askings to this: degree. I fell we will have » great deal of cooperation be> tween the Governor and the Democratic leadership with a cut in the to,tal appropriations. The sooner we finish appropriations, the sooner we ca n close the session. We hope to do more work in committee to cut down o n floor debate and the time consuming rhetoric indulged in by some people. As a leader, we will make every effort to move this session in a businesslike way. The Governor presented his first message to the joint session Tuesday with several proposals which had been included in the Democratic platform. I had a resolution introduced in ithe Senate asking the ' Governor to declare our part i Of the state a disaster area and I was happy to see him do this. I was happy to see so many people from our district down for the Inaugural festivities. My phone numbers for .tjiis session are 281-3371 for the Senate, my office phone is 281-5511 and our home phone while in Des Moines is the same as last year, 282-4734. If I can be of any help at any time, just let me know. TRAIN TO BE A LIVESTOCK BUYER No experience necessary. However, you should have a farm background and enjoy working wit& livestock.
