Funds raised will be used by the Iowa 4-H Foundation primarily for facility improvements at the 4-H 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 contributaon. Such ontributors will be recognized is "Grantors to 4-H with a pecial plaque. Larger contributors will be recognized as 'Builders of 4-H" or "Investors n 4-H" depending on the level of their gift. Persons interested in supporting the Iowa 4-H Founda- lon with a contribution of any size are encouraged to contact one of the county section chairpersons or the County Extension Office in Algona.

Priebe This first week of the 66th General 'Assembly, was, as usual, spent mostly in forjmalities. The senators and representatives are all sworn in on the f irs.t. day and the governor and lieutenant governor at special ceremonies on Thursday.

OR YOUR LOCAL HEATING CONTRACTOR snow storm. We were truly nowtoound and 1 want to .thank ,he county crews lor their ef- orts in getting Me out. I have hired my research aide lor this year. He is Charles Riekena of Forest City, a student ait Iowa University. He will e a fine addition fot me this ession. 1 will have a very heavy work load due to »y chairman- Jiip of the sub-uwnmittee on Human Relations, along with our full-time committees, and' eing one of three senators on -he Departmental Rules Committee. Most legislators have our committees, some have nly three, while some have anking minority or majority eats on a committee. I will be erving as assistant majority eader this session and this is >art of the reason for my being urnished a research aide. I would like to comment on he leadership as I feel we ave probably more total years f leadership and experience han we have had for some ears, especially in the Senate. Appropriations is the most im- ortant committee in this ses- ion, with the chairman start- ng his llth year in the legis- ature. The president pro tem f ,the Senate is beginning her 1th year; the assistant major- ty leaders i n the Senate, one is llth year and I am starting my 7th year in the legislature vith ,two years experience in adership in the House. I really >elieve we are in strong hands with the leadership in the Senate averaging 10 years of ixperience. The Democrats did •aucus this 'first week as there were problems to work out with ome 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 in Washington as the Democratic caucus was, I don't aelieve we would have the problems we now have on a national level. x I feel, as several of the lobbyists have commented, we will be a lot toiagher on the askings for appropriations to the various departments. I predict we will c*i 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 ;his 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 plat- 'orm. I had a resolution introduced in .the Senate asking the Governor to declare our part of the state a disaster area and I was happy to see him do this. I was happy to see so many >eople from our district down 'or the Inaugural festivities. My phone numbers for .this 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 can be of any help at any ime, just let me know. TRAIN TO BE A LIVESTOCK BUYER No experience necessary. However, you should have a farm background and enjoy working with livestock.
