"Food costs rose 5.9 percent, another blow to the elderly who spend an average of 27 percent of their budget on food as contrasted with 16 percent for the population as a whole." "And despite Medicare, the elderly were hit by a 5.7 percent increase in the cost of medical care," Cranston said. He pointed out that the average elderly person paid $225 for medical care during fiscal 1971, "Almost as much as he paid the year before Medicare went into effect, when the average payment was $234."

S. District Court Judge William Jones, July 6, to order the transfer of a roadless-area study case to the Northern California District Court from Washington D. C. The judge also granted timber industry representatives the right to intervene. The transfer order came as a result of an industry motion. . Judge Jones noted the need for such transfer to meet the convenience of western witnesses. He spoke of the concern of counties and industry people about the impact of the restrictions that were proposed by the Sierra Club in connection with its suit. Another consideration mentioned by the judge was the fact that a similar case is currently before Judge Alfonso Zirpoli in the San Francisco Federal Court. The Sierra Club indicated , that it might appeal the proposed transfer. Judge Jones gave the Sierra Club an additional ten days on the 10-day restraining order granted July 1 of this year. "Many western communities and firms would be adversely affected by the injunction sought by the Sierra Club", said George A. Craig, executive vice-president of the San Francisco based Western Timber Association.

Plumas County residents are taking increasing advantage of a two-year-old law which allows individuals to file for divorce without engaging an attorney. Exactly one third of the divorces filed with the county clerk since Jan. 1 have been filed In Pro Per, without counsel. Of the 27 divorce actions filed' with the clerk this year, nine have been filed In Pro Per. This is a marked increase over 1971, the first year the law was in effect, when only one such action was filed in Plumas-County. The procedure followed is relatively simple. Legal forms, obtained from the clerk's office, must be correctly prepared and filed with the standard $25 filing fee. This is the only expense to the individual seeking a divorce Candidate endorsed by Nixon Francis X. Callahan of Chico, GOP candidate for the U. S.
