His Boasts Not So Loud Now Yule Early at Meade; Banker 'Stuck 9 as Santa By ROY MILLER MEADE — Christmas came early to Cay Avenue here Wednesday night—and Clark Bird gets to play Santa Claus. Eleven of the 12 houses in the Sunrise Plaza subdivision were aglow with Christmas lights. In 80-degree weather, mind you, the houses were outlined with honest-to- goodness Christmas lights. The area has become famous—at least in this Meade County community—for the Christmas lights that usually go up around Thanksgiving. Sultry weather or not, they went up on this September night and attracted the curiosity of hundreds of passersby on USS4, which runs just a block from the new residential area. Inspiration for the premature holiday atmosphere comes from a standing agreement among Sunrise Plaza residents. The last homeowner to put up his Christmas lights has to throw a dinner for the neighborhood. Started Last Year The practice started last year and Clark Bird, president of the First National Bank, was the last to decorate his home. At the buffet dinner which served as his penalty, Bird loudly proclaimed that he would never again be caught in such a predicament. The proclamation stuck in the mind of his neighbors. And Sunday, when Mr. and Mrs. Bird left for a three-day trip to Colorado for a banking meeting, the wheels started turning. One neighbor credited Arlie Johnston, county sheriff who lives on the block, with the idea. But the sheriff, who could hardly talk for laughing, tried to disavow credit, saying, "I borrow money from him. Let's just say it was a block idea." About 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Birds returned to Meade. "Those dirty dogs put one over on me again," Bird said. "I saw the one (lit house) on the left when I got to the corner and then I turned the corner and saw them all. "1 knew right away what they'd pulled on inc." ACCK Colleges Lauded; Cited as 'Clean Industry 9 By MARY ANNE CRABB Value of the private colleges to the mid - Kansas economy was stressed Thursday at a Wichita meeting of representatives of the Associated Colleges of Central Kansas and the news media. The six colleges of the association have a student body this fall of 3,200 and a combined faculty and staff of 620, according to ACCK reports. Payrolls total nearly $5 million yearly. "Our operating budgets will total $10 million this year," said Roy Just, president of Tabor College, Hillsboro, and chairman of the ACCK executive committee. "Almost half of this is money brought into Kansas by out-of-state student tuition, gifts and federal funds." The six colleges are Bethany, McPherson, Sterling, Tabor, Bethel and Kansas Wesleyan. Community representatives attending the meeting included Mayor Harold Wiebe, Hillsboro; Mayor Hugo Lindahl, Lindsborg; Mayor Kenneth Swanson, McPherson; Brad Wells, North Newton; Ralph Wilson, Sterling; and Sherwood Parks, Salina. Just referred to the colleges as a "clean industry" of sizable importance. "A new survey by the American Council on Education shows that the average student spends $85 each month on personal items beyond his room and board. Applied to our 3,200 students, this amounts to more than a quarter of a million dollars each of the nine months they are on our campus. That's about $2.5 million each year going into the mid - Kansas economy." 50-50 Chance The tuition grant program under consideration by the Kan­ sas Legislature is thought to have about a 50-50 chance in the next session. If enacted, the bill would provide a sum of money paid by the state toward a student': tuition at the private college of his choice. A student would have to prove financial need to obtain a grant. An ACCK representative said many public colleges and u n i versities have more students this fall than can be accommo dated, while most private colleges have places which are unfilled, creating an uneco nomical situation and, in some cases, deficits. Higher Part Paid A student at a public college or university pays about 25 to 30 per cent of the cost of his education, and taxes pay the balance. A student at a private college pays about 70 per cent of the cost of his education, and gifts to the colleges, from p r i vate sources make up the difference.

With strong winds battering this Harvey County community —and the rest of Southwest Kansas for that matter, the inflatable dome covering the city's community swimming pool was ripped. The pool was not in use at the time. The pool, completed in early September, was a joint venture of the city and the school district. It's located adjacent to the high school on park property. City Administrator Wallace Stovall figures the constant beating of 40 mile an hour winds was too much. But officials who installed the bubble originally said it could withstand winds up to 110 mph. Later they revised that downward to 80 mph. Exact amount of the damage was not immediately known. Hesston officials plan to meet with representatives of the Salina firm that manufactures the dome Friday morning. Stovall said the firm was scheduled to make its final inspection of the project Friday morning. "As far as we're concerned, it's still the contractor's," Stovall said. (News Photo by jim Morris) The bubble weighs two tons. THE BUBBLE, when inflated, was about as tall as building at right. The dome and air handling equipment cost $18,000. Stovall believes the bubble is salvageable but thinks it would take a major repair effort. At most locales, strongest winds were reported in the late afternoon hours with the blast subsiding at sundown. Leads List Russell's airport led the list ,with a recording of gusts up to 160 mph. Other peak winds were 42 at Hutchinson, 46 at Wichita, 38 at Dodge City and 55 at Hays. More of the same is expected Friday with no relief in (sight until Friday night when a cold front is expected to enter the state. Cooler air and Ithe chance of showers may accompany the new front as it moves into Southwest Kansas by Saturday morning.
