"The committee system is the backbone of the farm programs. "Us responsibilities include the conservation of natural resources, the stabilization of agricultural commodities, and price-support activities which protect and improve farm income. We need the best possible cross- section of farmers to insure effective administration of the various measures." In KoESiith, Mr. Anderson said 4200 farms took part Last year in one or more programs administered by the ASC committees. Funds disbursed under the committees' supervision amounted to $14,302,400. Of this amount, $9, 755,395 was for price-support loans aimed at increasing market returns above what farmers would receive on an unsupported market. Included in the price-support program in this county are such major commodity programs as corn, beans and oats. Last year, also. Ii0,()34 acres of farmland were improved under the ASCI' cost-shaving arrangement. The total investment in conservation was about $122.517, with about half coming from the participating farmer and the balanco from ACP.

Ntw« »rM., Int.] DEAR ABBY: I am a man approaching 50. My sister and I were married on the same day, and for 18 years the four of us celebrated our anniversaries together. Then my wife and I were divorced. I remarried. She did not. Our "25th" is coming up soon frather, it would have been our 25th had we stayed married to each other]. My present wife will be out of town, so my sister suggested that the "original four" quietly get together again for old times' sakes. I can't see where there would be any harm in it. My children arc all for it. Are you? I. REGRET DEAR REGRET: The "old times" so dear to your sister can be recalled but hardly re-created. The feelings of your present wife are more Important than nostalgic pleasantries with the wife that was. And don't gamble that an anniversary reunion will remain a secret. In other words, if I were you, I would skip it. DEAR ABBY: A girl in our office is getting married, and since there are 25 of us we thought we ^would all go in together and buy her one nice gift. Two girls were selected to purchase the gift. They bought a $4 habachi and added to it a 25-cent card on which they wrote this long list of donors.lt came to the grand total of 16 cents apiece 1 All 25 of us are going to the wedding, and I am embarrassed to tears. Should I go ahead and buy something on my own at the risk of starting a war? Or should 1 just let it go? SURROUNDED BY CHEAPSKATES DEAR SURROUNDED: Buy something on your own and quietly send it. And by the way, the usual procedure is first to collect so much from each girl, and then buy a gift in that amount. There is no excuse for having been "surprised" the way you were. DEAR ABBY: About a year ago my husband took the job as the den father of a Cub scout pack, as our church was sponsoring them. The woman that was the den mother would pump the children about the kind of magazines their parents read, and their home life in general. This got back to the parents, and my husband received so many complaints that he went to the den mother and told her that this was not part of her job. She told him that she was a dedicated civic worker and it was her duty to find out these things, and to let the other people in the community know what kind of t*6pte Ived there. My husband was So disgusted he resigned. To this day, this woman talks about Wfn something terrible. ! think the woman is Sick and shwildfit * dfojedtd hive a pack under her leadership.

Titonka — The Titonka public library was fortunate to secure the services of a college trained director for the Summer Story hour conducted in the library community room for an eight week period this summer. The director, Janice Alke, was graduated from Wartburg college, Waverly in May with a bachelor of arts in elementary education. She will teach in the Peoria, 111. schools this coming school year. The Tuesday afternoon story hour affords the children of the community with pleasant entertainment, serves to build reading readiness in pre-schoolers, and stimulates reading interest in the older group. The community room at the library provides •a roomy, attractive setting and allows the carrying out of the program without the interruption of normal' library activities. Children are seated on, colorful plastic floor cushions especially designed for such a project. Interest of young listeners throughout each period is assured by a varied program of sit-still periods interspersed with move-albout activities, Janice Alke is pictured with children from both age groups. Clowns strung across the wall are used with the summer reading progiram sponsored by the Titonka Federated club in cooperation with the library. The two remaining sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, August 1 and 8; 2:30 to 3— Pre-school through Kindergarten, and 3 to 4—Grades one through three.
