Brown's Bylines Plan Study Series On Farm Managing By DON BROWN Agricultural Agent A series of study - discussion meetings on farm and home management have been arranged for farm couples of Franklin County. The management school will consist of four meetings in February and March with the first session on Feb. 7. The school will start at 10 a.m. on each date and adjourn' about 3 p.m. The Ottawa Co-Op meeting room is the location of all sessions. Husband and wife attendance is encouraged, since farming is a partnership. In p a s t years we have had a wife attend a session when the husband could not be there. Discussions will be geared mainly for persons who still are in the process of growing and changing in their farm business. Wilton Thomas, extension farm management specialist, and Rosemary Crist, home economist agent, will assist with the school. Usual topics include cropping and livestock systems, wise use of Don Can Give To March Of Dimes Persons who have inteded to contribuete to the 1963 March of Dimes but have overlooked doing so are invited by James L. Allen, director of this year's campaign, to join the drive at once. Checks and coins may be left in containers in the lobbies of Ottawa Banks, in restaurants and grocery stores. Checks may be mailed to March of Dimes, Ottawa, and will go to Mrs. Frances Jones who is treasurer for the campaign. Those from out of town will be credited to the community from which they are mailed and will be so reported in final tabulation. Allen said that part of funds received stay in this community, part go to a research fund and the balance to National Foundation headquarters. Covered this year are not only polio but arthritis and birth defects. For the help of victims of the last two, assistance last year was greater than for any year for polio victims. The importance of helping those with birth defects is evident when figures compiled by U.S. health agencies indicate that of the 250,000 babies born in the U.S. each year, one out of 16 will have some type of birth defect. The Mercy Hospital of Kansas City, Mo., staffed by physicians from the University of Kansas Medical Center, is the treatment center in this area for such cases.

In these sessions we try to stress that how well farm families analyze, decide, plan, organize and evaluate their business is more important now than how hard they work. No easy answers are available, but all of those attending can benefit from a study of principles of management. While personal information remains personal the "how to apply" is emphasized in the meetings. We can handle about 10 to 15 couples for this school. Plan to attend the first session on Feb. 7 at 10 a.m. Other dates are Feb. 12, 20 and March 1. Control of cattle lice by spraying now may prevent considerable irritation and damage to cattle in late winter and spring. The damage may be found in reduction of milk produced in dairy animals, or in reduced weight gains in beef cattle. Heavily - infected animals may be weakened by blood losses to the point at which they are more susceptible to diseases. Some animals called "louse carriers" have much heavier populations of lice than others. They may show the blue rings around the eyes and muzzle at the present time. An overall spray treatment is most effective in reducing louse numbers. Any of the following insecticides may be used on beef animals for louse control—Un- dane, methoxychlor, malathion, toxaphene, ronnel or delnav. Apply enough spray to wet thoroughly the animals to the skin—> 2 to 4 gallons of spary for mature animals in winter coat. Rotenone or pyrethrum should be used on dairy animals producing milk. Kansas City Votes School Tax Increase KANSAS CITY (AP) — More than 43,000 Kansas City School District voters braved snow and bitter cold and gave 3-2 approval to a 22-cent increase in its tax levy in a special election Tuesday. The vote was 26,132 to 17,176. The same proposal was defeated at the time of the general election in November. The increase raises the school tax to $2.99 on each $100 of assessed valuation, including a continuing 30-cent levy for the retirement of bonds voted previously for new buildings and equipment. The school (ax also supports the Kansas City public library system. The additional 22 cents is ex- pected to provide an extra $3 million in operating funds for the 1963-64 and 1964-65 school years. The largest part of it will be used to raise teachers' salaries and hire 70 additional instructors needed for the 2,000 new pupils expected in the next two school years.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Post Office wishes Pvt. Peter Wright would pick up his mail. Someone sent him an egg—no wrapping, box or anything. Scribbled on the shell is this address "To Pvt. Peter H. Wright, Fort Knox, Ky.," and the notation "From R. H., Louisville, Ky." The sender also stuck 11 cents' worth of postage on the egg, more than enough for the weight, but Uncle Sam can't handle it: Something about new regulations on the shape and size of mail. Carrier Lawrence Peake discov- ered the egg when he opened a deposit box on the city's outskirts. It had been dropped 16 to 25 inches into the box but other mail kept the egg from scrambling. Wright, contacted at Ft. Knox, said he didn't know the sender but will try to pick up the egg this weekend, if he gets a pass.

However, there is the addition of a vocal ensemble and instrumental ensemble. Under the new section, talent, are dance, novelty or stunt and dramatics which are new. How the musical games are to be conducted will be determined by the 4-H Council. Bill Borst, Wyandotte club agent, wrote the following item about Club Day: "County Club day is intended only as a stimulation to better 4- II club programming. If successful, the event will be reflected in better quality club meetings, demonstrations, project and activity talks, more interesting club programs and more enthusiasm for club work." "Club day entries are judged in order to give the members, their parents and leaders an opportunity to set a standard for improvement. Ribbons are given for those who must have something tangible in their hands for satisfaction. A few of the better events are selected for exhibition at the regional club day.

BUTLER'S "Those who mistakenly understand that club days are set up principally for competition and awards do not understand the function of county club day nor, for that matter, do they understand the truly educational purposes of the 4-H club program."
