Dangers of rabies outlined by PH vet To protect the public against rabies, a dog leash law for Hope will be on the November 5 ballot. Because of this; the dangers of rabies were outlined by Dr. Marvey Ellis, Public Health veterinarian of Little Rock, who is a member of the State Veterinary Board, when the Hope Rotary Club had its weekly luncheon meeting in the Town and Country Friday, October 18. The program was arranged by Bob Gullett, and a special guest, Dr. Herbert Rogers, introduced the speaker. A film, "Dog Bites and Rabies," was shown, which depicted the victims of rabid animals. Then, Dr. Ellis explained how these mishaps could be avoided by vaccination of cats and dogs, by keeping pets under leash, and by restraining, destroying, of stterilzing stray animals. Dr. Ellis warned his listeners against capturing wild animals to make them pets, because quite often they may be rabid. Methods of testing for rabies have changed over the years, but it is still painful and costly for the victims of animal bites. For this reason, the public was urged to vote for the dog leash law on November 5. President Gerald Keith welcomed Dr. Ellis, Dr. Rogers, Rotarian David Day of Texarkana, Tex., Hugh Berryman of Texarkana, Jim Pilkington, and student guests, Mike Bobo and Rusty Cole. ASC committeemen nominations sought Farmers are asked to nominate candidates of their choice to be on the ASC community committee ballot, says Ralph Montgomery, chairman. The ASC community committee election will be conducted from Nov. 22 to Dec. 2, by mail ballot. The five ASC communities in Hempstead county are: A-B Spring Hill- Patmos, C-D Shover Springs- Hope, E-F-G Fulton, Cross Roads-Washington, H-I DeAnn- Blevins, J-K-L McCaskill-Ozan- Bingen. ASC committees are responsible for managing government farm programs on the local level. To meet the needs of individual producers, ASC committee members must be concerned and responsible individuals, montgomery said. Farmers have the opportunity to nominate persons they feel would best serve the farm community. Farmers have received petition forms by mail and may submit them to the county ASCS office anytime before Oct. 29, 1974. A few basic considerations should be kept in mind when circulating petitions, Montgomery said. In order to be'" valid, petitions must be limited to one nominee each, must include written certification that the nominee is willing to serve if elected, must be signed by at least three eligible farm voters in the ASC community, and must be received in the county ASCS office no later than Oct. 29. A farmer may circulate or sign nominating petitons for as many candidates as he chooses. Anyone wishing to nominate a farmer for the ASC committee election may contact the county ASCS office for full details, including eligibility requirements for officeholders. Montgomery believes that farmer nominations of candidates for the upcoming ASC committee election are very important. He said, "Farmers should petition for and elect those individuals they feel would do a good job as ASC committeemen. The election of concerned farmers to positions on ASC committees is necessary for good administration of farm programs." Montgomery further explained that the county ASC office welcomes all valid petitions. The opportunity to nominate, vote, and be,elected tcupffice., is,, guaranteed ,to iall farmers regardless of race, religion, sex, color, or national origin. All Around Town .By The Star Staff.
