She is also accustomed to "firsts" in her 23-year Civil Service career, always with the Logistics Command and its antecedents. She is the first woman to receive the APLC Commander's Achiever ment Award (1951) for duty as secretary to the AFLC dep< uty director of personnel and admjnistra'tion.

As far as anyone knows, she is the first female administrative assistant in 1956 to the Commander of Air Materiel Forces in Europe. When she transferred in 1965 from the WRAMA general's office to 'helicopters, she became the first female helicopter logistician in the Air Force. In the acquisition of the HH-53B — originally a Navy system — for Air Force operations, she has worked with the first converted model used for training, the first operational model used for training and evaluation at Elgin AFB, Fla., and with the first delivery model.

They are Rich Black and Max Laird. Black is a senior and Laird a junior. The Americans Abroad Program was started in 1950 by AFS exchange students who, once they had returned home, wanted to offer young Americans the kind of opportunity which they had been provided in the U. S. FOR THE individuals involved, this program entails an experience in eve)ryd(ay living. The family experience is the core. The families participating in the prog'ram are a kaleidoscope of personalities, values and interests. Becoming part of a family involves sharing its day-to-day existance; its relationships, its spirit, its emobionq, its chores, its active moments and quit times. Hcst families accept ASF students into their home voluntarily; they are not paid. In all but the English speaking countries, Americans Abroad students must commit themselves to intensive language study. The participant is expected to participate in a school as a regular student, and generally there is no special treatment because he is an American Abroad student. Over 50 countries participate in this program. PLACEMENT is not a process of simply matching personalities, interests or cir- """II""" UllllllllllllllllllllllllAllHIIHU H • cumstances. These factors are taken into consideration, but the main emphasis is on bringing together a student anld family whose qualities and personalities will compliment each other and give a basis for mutual enjoyment •and learning. Consequently, AFS can make no guarantee <to accept a candidate from any of the participating schools or chapters. The selection committee from the local chapter in'eluded: Elgin Allen, James Andersen, Mrs. Floyd Bode, Mr. and Mrs. Dale Laws, Debbie Laws, Richard Soh- in neider, Mrs. Mitch and Mrs. Rex Taylor. Combine hits car north of Bancroft One year volume of '16,319,859 Algona merchants who col- 'lect sales tax did $1,585,496 more business in the year ending last June 30 than they did m the year ending June 30, 1966. This is shown by sales tax figures released by the state tax commission'. Sales tax collected in the year ending June 30, 1966 totaled $326,397.19 representing a sales volumn in taxable items of $16,319,859. Sa'les tax collected in the year ending in June 1967 totaled $358,107.10, representing a sales volumne in taxable items of $17,905,355. The tax paid by people in Kossuth county as a whole jumped from $575,985.90 in the year ending June 30, 1966, to a total of $620,627.74 for the year ending in June. This represents a sales volume increase from $28,799,295 to $31,031,387. This is $2,232,092 over the previous year. The largest item in the collection for Kossuth was the general merchandise classification which jumped Crom $176,838.24 to $189,342.38 in 'tax paid. This represents a sales increase from $8,841,912 in 1966 to $9,467,140 in the year ending in 1987. Next biggest volume in the county was in food tax paid which went from $146,465.31 in 1966 to $156,301.86 in the year eriding last June. This represents a sales volume of $7,323,265 in 1966 and of $7,815,093 for the year ending last June. With very few exceptions •there were increases in Iowa towns. This is caused some by inflation, which raises prices which in turn at 2 percent increases the tax paid. Only exceptions to the general trend of increase were some, of the smaller towns. 'With 'the increase to three cents on items already taxed and the new three percent services tax the income from Kossuth to the state of Iowa will skyrocket. For instance each item previously taxed will require a 50 percent increase in -tax from two to three percent Thus on 'the same sales in the coming year on food Kossutii people will pay $78,150 more in that one item. Likewise in 'general merchandise Kossuth people will be taxed $94,671. In all categories the people Kossutlh will be taxed A •ruling blocking the consolidation of Bancroft and Ledyard school districts has been upheld by the Iowa Supreme Court. A. M.

These 'townships 'have been sending students to Bancroft on a tuition basis. Although Ledyard operates a high school, it appears un- 'likely that Bancroft will be attached to Ledyajrd. A 17-year old Bancroft girl, Kathleen Murray, escaped injury Tuesday when a combine bsdng towed by a pickup truck swung into her car, sending it into a plowed field four miles west and l ] /4 miles north of Swea City on a blacktop road off highway The accident occured about 6:45 p.m. and was investigated by highway patrolman Tom Cogdall. He charged the driver of the pickup truck, Alfred Godfredsen, 77, of Fairmont, with failing to have control of his vehicle. Godfredsen was operating a pickup truck owned by Elvin Godfredsen of Armstrong and towing a John Deere corn- buns south on the blacktop. Miss Murray, driving a car owned by her father, Joe Murray, was going north. The combine apparently was loose and swung across the center line as the two mar ohmes mat, knocking the 1967 Murray Chevrolet off the rosad and into the field, ft had $1500 Taylor, $310,312 more in this coming year than in the year ending •last June if sales are the same. This is just on taxes which ihave been subject to 'the two percent 'tax in the past. In the new services tax •about everything except babysitters (so far anyway) will be taxed. What the "tax take" will be from Kossuth under the new sales and services tax is a mystery—but it will make the tax paid previously look pretty small, Auction buildings at golf course Whittemore — Auction of buildings on the grounds of the new Whittemore golf club was 'held recently. Successful bidders included Stanley Op- haim, tenant house and garage; Alfred Meyer, corn crib; and Ernest Meyer, hog ihouse.
