8 THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, January 29, 1963 Pomona News 348 Take Type II Vaccine Says Kennedy Trying To Scare Farmer Into 'Yes' Vote On Wheat By MARY HUDELSON Type II polio vaccine was given to 348 persons at the Pomona Grade School by the staff of the county health department. Mrs. Herbert Wolf. Mrs. Kenneth Stoffer, Mrs. Harold Staadt, Mrs. Fred Wood, Mrs. John Lederer and Mrs. Everett Burgess, members of the Harmony Homes HDU, were volunteer helpers. A run-down of those who received the shots showed 9 in the age 0-1 group; 17 in ages 2-3; 21 for 4-5; 18 for 6-7; 23 for 8-9; 114 for 10-21; 82 at 22-40; and 64 for age 40 and over. According to Dr. Joe Henning, county health officer, more persons in the over-40 age group need to be encouraged to take the vaccine even though they may be less susceptible to the disease. They can be carriers. He saw to it that your correspondent took a dose even while she was gathering these statistics. The March of Dimes collection taken at the quarter of the Pomona-Princeton basketball game amounted to $22.97. Mrs. Neal Baxter, local chairman, was in charge of the effort and will turn the money in to headquarters. Vernon Hill and son, Charles, Barnston, Neb., were Sunday dinner guests of Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Hill. Charles has been home on a 14-day furlough from the Navy and will leave on Wednesday for San Francisco where he will begin electronics schooling. Mrs. N. V. Hudclson and Mrs. E. J. Neeley, women on the parsonage committee of the Methodist Church, gave a tea at the Hudelson home Monday, Jan. 21, for 16 women to make plans and discuss ways and means for raising money for a new parsonage. This project is slated for some time in the future, but backing for it must begin now. Phillip Griffin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Griffin, left Kansas City Wednesday, Jan. 23, for San Diego, Calif., to begin training in the U. S. Navy. He was a high school student during the first semester. HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) Walter Peirce, president of the Kansas Farm Bureau, said Monday night the Kennedy administration is trying to scare farmers into voting for its 1964 wheat program in a referendum this spring. "The secretary of agriculture has already released a scare statement saying that there will be $2 wheat if his program is ap- proved and $1 wheat if it is rejected," Pierce told about 200 bureau members at a leadership training school. He said the Farm Bureau has been accused of having no program. "Such ridiculous statements mean that we in the Farm Bureau are going to have to spend a large part of our time and energy answering our critics when it would be so much more constructive to put this energy into our state legislative issues and commodity, citizenship and marketing programs," Peirce said. Under the administration's certificate plan, farmers are given acreage and bushel allotments for wheat. A farmer could get $2 a bushel for his share of the domestic market, and the rest of his wheat could be sold at the world price, which Peirce said was $1.35 or $1.40. Pierce said the only way wheat could drop to $1 would be for the secretary of agriculture to dump surplus wheat on the market, a power he has under the farm bill passed last summer. Farm Bureau legislation, Peirce said, would prevent dumping any surplus at less than 115 per cent of support prices. He gave this description of the Farm Bureau's wheat plan: 1. A simple easily-administered land retirement plan to give us supply control with freedom of choice for the farm to raise what is best suited to his area. 2. Elimination of allotments and marketing quotas so farmers will not have to go to the ASC office for every commodity produced. 3. Price supports that are realistic with present world conditions and marketing problems, with rewards for milling and bak- ing quality wheat in the market place. 4. Provisions that present surpluses be used for export programs and not dumped on the domestic market for less than 115 per cent of support prices.
