The sale of malt beverages will become legal in the state of Kansas Saturday and all of the cities of Republic county have prepared, uniform regulations to control the situation.

Three applications for licenses to sell malt beverages in the city of Belleville-have- beeiv-flied witlrl the city office^ Applications will probably "be received from at least 14 more applicants withjn the next two days. The application is accompanied by $25 in cash to pay for the license. If the application is__rejected^-the_fefi_posted. will be. returned to the applicant. Before Coimmission Monday The board of city commissioners of Belleville will meet Monday night to consider the applications that have been filed prior to their meeting. Only two establishments in the city would' be ineligible under the new law. No applications have come before the county commissionei's as yet. .Beverage supplies may run a bit short on the first day of legality, because retailers will be unable, to ' purchase beer fi-ojn wholesalers until they can show a permit to sell. The retailers find themselves in a situation where they can sell but cannot bqy. However, the retailer may purchase his supply before May 1 but will be subject to a gallonage tax of five cents a gallon on all beer on hand the first day of May. , • Regulations covering the sale of beer throughout the county have been kept uniform by the coopera- tion~of-the-variou.s—city councils and township boards. Strenuous efforts have been made by the regulatinih authorities to prevent the new law from becoming too involved, and the resultant simplification of the regulations was j . ^i,!<i.,.„i. _,i j planned to. enable. better enforce-!-rj.theatc^a™^^ C^ arena.

The^uiiper deck, flat afeirat the top of the building, which comprises about a third of the entire roof area, will be recoated with asphalt-base paint, as will the gutters around the building. Cement will bo used to repair any faulty joining, but it is not planned to replace any of the metal. Some patchwork will be necessary on the sloping sides of ! the roof.

A. judging and public speaking contests. The Belleville team wii's composed of Max Scofield, Maynard Abrahams and Rudolph Rundus, who made an excellent showing in the statewide event. Newton high school was winner of the contest. Max. Scofield-was ninth individual in the livestock division, in a field of 258 high school boys. Only the top 10 individuals were announced—in-each -division—The. contest required two days, with a half day devoted to judging each of four divisions, crops, livestock, dairying and poultry. Experience gained in this competitioif with 86 schools was of .miich value to the local students, who have won high honors in district contests since vocational agriculture was instituted here two years ago. Honor Merrill Abrahams Charles Krause represented Belleville high in the F. F. A. public speaking contest. Herman Baer of Abilene high school won the speaking title. Merrill Abrahams received the coveted State Farmer degree at the banquet concluding the two- day youthful farmers event Tuesday night. He was one of 25 honored with that title out of the enrollment of almost 1,500 F. F. A. boys-iii_Kansas. It-is the highest state honor in the organization. The Belleville high school stu- j-dents-were -acGompanietl— to—Man­ hattan—by—J—R—WellsT-vocational- agriculture instructor. The showing made by the school this spring is noteworthy, in that the pupils have had the advantage of only two years of vocational training, while • many schools have had Smith-Hughes departments for a number of years. Cool weather the past 10 days has resulted,in further improve-' ment in Republic county's wheat condition, according to County Agefit H. J. Adams. Plants have stooled in excellent fashion, recent weather being ideal for that purpose. Stands of wheat in scores of fields have improved greatly, thickenings up in surprising fash- jon. •. lli'own spots in some fields, which farmers blamed on the ice- coat during much of the winter, have disappeared in most instances, "rhe state crop report April 1 gave Republic county's wheat condition_ as 86 per cent, which local-observers-believed'-was a trifle high. Now, however, with the improvement the past two weeks, they believe that the condition is probably better than that figure. Mercury Down to 32 A colcf wave which arrived Fri<lay evening with .13 inch of rain has brought constantly low temperature since. The low mark was Tuesday morning, when the mercury dipped to 32 degrees, and frost was visible for a short time after daylight. No damage resulted, however.- The wind blew almost a gail from FHday through Sunday. Oats have been growing slowly. Stands are good, and acreage to oats and barley is little below the intended 35,000. J'armers -are- busy locating seed supplies, preparing to plant corn. Estimates on corn acreage intentions run from 75,0(J0 to 90,0.00 acres.

Akdams, county agent, announced this week. The farmer must turn in to the Republic County Farm Bui'eau office or their township committeemen a legal description of all ground he farms this year, and show how he cxpects-to-earn - SCA payments. The papers- all must go to the district office May 15. He must list the acres he will plant to alfalfa, clover or grass, or will allow to lie fallow. On the fallow ground he will collect, the reduction payment, of $5 per acre, and on land planted to alfalfa, clover or grass, he will obtain the additional soil-building payment of $3.40 per acre. These figures are county averages, and will vary with the productivity of the indi- . vidual farms. Must Apply for Offset The farmer who has lost alfalfa and expects to offset that loss in soil-building acreage by planting emergency hay or pasture crops must make application to his township committeeman immediately. Compliance could be virtually impossible -for farmers who have lost, large plots of alfalfa, which had previously been deducted from their acreages of soil- depleting crops. ' However, it is now i)ossible for such a farmer to plant sudan, millet, oats or similar hay crops as an offset to the lost alfalfa. Upon application to the SCA committce- many this emergency hay crop can be- designated -as neutral- acres- 89 48 Clear 87 47 Cloudy .,55 . .15 .la PUCldy, 5.1 . 38 Cloudy 50 34 Pt.Cldy. 59 32 Clear 55 44 Cloudy WORK STARTS AT SCANDIA Construction of East Approach to New Bridge Gets Under Way There Monday.

The instruction will be in charge of H. J.,Adams, county agent. He rlepbi'ts a rapidly gro'wirig demand for terracing, and has run almost 10 .miles of terrace lines for farmers over the county in the past two weeks. The need for terraces and the interest shown in that im- ])ortant farm development furnished the impetus for Monday's meeting, which will be held at the Belleville Chamber of Commerce rooms. Township leaders trained at this meeting will bo able to encourage terracing and assist with the lines. The project is another of the valuable educational programs instituted by the Republic County Farm Bureau. A group of 30 to 50 farmers is expected to attend thc-teri'acing schnnl. TO CONFER K. OF C.
