Sets Annual Meeting The Annual Meeting of the Farmers Co-op Oil Co. of Tl- fonka will be held Monday, February 3 starting at 7:30 The "Topic" today carries the official proposed budget notice for the Titonka Consolidated School District. This is for the 1975-76 school year and will be the first time that tax collections and budget year will be occuring simultaneously. Attempting to explain this budget figure would take a great deal of space and would probably be of little value to the reader. What is important to every one is the effect it will have on taxes. A comparison of property ,tax revenue and state aid required to meet the budget of the present year and 1975-76 is as follows: 1974-75 Revenue: Property Tax $378,873, State Aid $162,723. 1975-76 Estimated Revenue: Property Tax $393,533, State Aid $209,449. This is an increase of $14,660 In propenty tax revenue and an increase of $46,726 in state aid. General Fund millage rose from 30.063 to an estimated 40.932. This 1.869 mill increase Squaws Win First Came, Indians Whip 1C 72-45 p.m. in the Titonka School {will be more than offset by a Lunch Room, according to John 2.6 mill levy decrease which Gerrit DeWaard Wins Tournament All Events Titonka bowlers took three of the four first places in the North Kossuth Bowling Ass'n.

Finally, it appears that the district has lost two sources ol miscellaneous income which trade had expected, and was one of several factors behind a sharp break in cash cor n prices in mid-January. Other factors behind the decline include weakness in livestock prices and reports of in-1 to"our~districT formal government effor.ts to delay corn sales to two foreign customers. The economist said the next major indicator of corn price trends will be the January 24 USDA grain stocks report. That report will reveal recent domes- itic grain feeding levels, a factor which could have even more significance than export movement or the revised crop figures. Three out of every four bushels of our corn is still used for domestic livestock feeding. apportionments voted out by referendum in the November election and an IPERS reimbursement .terminated by the Iowa legislature.

But Wisner said, a large break in the corn price seems unlikely until more is known about the 1975 crop prospects. The ISU grain marketing specialist attributes the recent sharp price decline on soybeans to sluggish demand for oil and meal, along with, increased competition, narrow margins for cruchers, and inventory build up probletms both at home and abroad. Farmer marketings of beans have been quite light in recent weeks. If that pattern continues, Wisner sees the possibility of a temporary and limited price recovery sometime late this winter or in'early spring. School Board Drops Special Levy Plan The Titonka Board of Education met in special session o n Thursday, Jan. 23 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the possibility of voting on a 21/2 mill levy for school repairs. After discussion, the board took no aotdon to present the mill levy to the voters. They decided to meet 1975-76 jbliga- tions by postponing some building maintenance, attempt to carry over at least $30,00 in 1974-75 funds, and change ,the 1975-76 supply purchasing cycle to the 1976-77 fiscal year if necessary.
