AIM STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLIS "Intel taunt fey Still AiMft" A LOCAL YOUNG man, never known for his academic ability in high school, met one of his former teachers on the street the other day for the first time since he left high school . . . after exchanging pleasantries, she asked him what he was doing now. "I'm studying for my Master's degree and then am going to get a Ph. D,"'hc told her. "Well," said the startled teacher, "you just never know, do you!" * * * PATROLMAN TOM COGDALL made notice the other day a change in the Iowa law which provides for a stiffcr penalty to anyona defacing or injuring any traffic control device, railroad sign or signal or any barricade sign . . . before the maximum penalty was 30 days in jail or $100 fine — now it is Up to 6 months in jail or $500 fine (or both). The measure is in the face of increasing evidence of vandalism and destruction of emergency warning and traffic devices around construction sites. PRICES ARE SOARING in everything these days and athletic events arc no exception . . . thus a note from Beanie Cooper advising of a slight price rise at (.arrigan's football games this fall comes as no surprise . . . but Beanie did want to get some notice out before fans got to Hie gate and found they needed $1.25 rather than $1.00 to watch the Bears play. "One of the reasons for the price jump is the new law that places athletic contests under the 3% sales tax category," Beanie explains. "Last year, three of the eight schools we played charged $1.26 for adult tickets. And a poll of Iowa high schools earlier this year showed half charging $1.25 and most of the others anticipating a jump to that figure next year." (MS Note — Lots of us made hardly a murmur when the price of cigarettes has jumped steadily the past few years so should we complain at all for an athletic boost?) GARRY McDONALD, supervisor from the 2nd dis- trist, put up several dozen signs with big, black letters "Danger — Corn Corner" in his district which includes Union and Plum Creek townships a few weeks ago and feels they slowed traffic down at some of these dangerous intersections ... at least a number of compliments from farmers in the areas gives him the feeling the signs did some good. He used steel fence posts with a piece of plywood attached and then stapled the cardboard signs onto the post . . . they were put along the shoulder 300 or 400 feet ahead of the intersection where tall corn obscured the vision of motorists from both directions. Maybe they saved YOUR life this summer?
