(AP)— The county commissioners of Montgomery, Wilson, Elk and Chautauqua counties have agreed to levy a half-mill special tax and set up an area mental health center in southeast Kansas. Bob Sayers, a member of the board of the Montgomery County Mental Health Association Inc., estimated the levy on tangible property will raise about $60,000 a year. Sayers said inclusion of the levy in the 1964 county budgets will make possible the location of a mental health center in the area next year. The location will be determined by the county commissioners. Operation of the clinic is estimated to cost about $40,000 to $50,000 a year. No building program is planned, since the center would operate as an out-patient clinic.

He took the $1,000 fiction prize Tuesday with "Morte D'Urban," his first published novel, which deals with a fictional religious order and the ironic fate of a popular priest who is overwhelmed by the buffetings of misfortune. Stafford, 49, was born and reared in Hutchinson, Kan., and teaches literature and composition at Lewis and Clark College, Portland, Ore. He won the $1,000 poetry prize with Traveling Through the 'Dark," which as he says is not the kind of poetry that has a lot of modern shock in it. Edel, 56, was born in Pittsburgh! He teaches literature at New York University. The $1,000 non-fiction prize went to him for the second and third volumes of his four-volume biography "Henry James," a scholarly work enlivened, as the judges put it, with psychological insight and narra- The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader.

It has 5 per cent of the school districts in the nation but snly 1 psr cast of the pupils. Fourth, Teachers in Kansas this year are being paid $689 less than _ the national average.
