They need your help. In the past the young merchants have collected by the month, in advance, basing their bills on the number of Saturdays in a month. But, our calendar being what it is, the number of Saturdays varies from month to month. Sometimes this confuses the carriers' customers since the amount collected differs one month to the next. So to eliminate all confusion, effective April 1, Monday, car riers will collect $1.55 per month, all 12 months per year. By settling on this amount each month, it is hoped all confusion will be eliminated. Your carrier will be knocking on your door in the next few days to collect for the month of April. You can help him by having the money ready. After all, he is i busy boy with school, his car rier duties and he does need some time left over just to play.

(Herald Photo) She'll Make A Nice Home GARNETT - How does it feel to be chosen State Betty Crocker Homemaker for Kansas? "It's a real thrill," says Ruth Sue Raymond. Garnett High School senior, who has just received that honor. Miss Raymond, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs George A. Raymond, Garnett, ranked first among 4,570 girls in 313 high schools .in_,the state. She will receive an $1,500 scholarship from General Mills. As State Homemaker of Tomorrow she becomes a candidate with the State Homemakers from each of the other 49 states and the District of Columbia for the title of All- American Homemaker of Tomorrow. On April 20, as guests of General Mills, all the state Homemakers and their school advisors will begin a historical tour of Colonial Williams- New York, burg, Va., and Washington, D. C. The educational trip will culminate on April 26 with an American Table Dinner in Minneapolis, Minn., where the Ail- American Homemaker of Tomorrow will be announced. Her scholarship will be raised to $5,000, and the scholarships of the second, third and fourth ranking girls in the nation will be raised to $4,000, $3,000 and $2,000, respectively. Miss Raymond says the written test which she and other high school senior girls throughout the country took Dec. 4 covered everything involved in homemaking. She feels that her work in 4-H and FHA helped her to achieve the high rating. In 4-H work for the 10th year, Miiss Raymond is president of her club, the Lucky 13, this year. She is an "A" honor roll student, a drum majorette in the school's marching band, a member of .the school choir, is active in the Pep Club and Y-Teens and plays the piano for Sunday School and her own enjoyment. FHA work has given this State Homemaker a wider range of experiences in recent months. She was state president last year and was elected national vice president for public relations of that organization at its Salt Lake City, Utah, convention. Miss Raymond Says that as chairman of this committee it was her duty to plan a project and carry it out with the members from nine other States. She wrote an article describing the project, Satellite PR, for the February-March issue of Teens Times, the magazine for Future Homemakers of America. She also is president of her chapter this year. "She has worked on FHA about every day this year," says Eve lyn Ruth, her home economics teacher who will accompany her on the Eastern trip. Miss Raymond plans to major in family and child development at Kansas State University, Manhattan. She is much interested in interior decoration and has carried out several room decoration projects.

Bowers' District Would Be Larger State Senator William Bowers of Ottawa, under the provisions of the recommended reapportionment arrangement of the Senate, would represent 56,384 persons instead of the 39,292 he now represents, and the territory added to his present Franklin-Miami County district will be, roughly, the southwest portion of Johnson County. In adding that portion of Johnson County to Franklin and Miami Counties to form what will be known as the new 5th senatorial district of Kansas, Senator Bowers will have in his new district the cities of Olathe, Gardner and Spring Hill in addition to the rural areas of that portion of Johnson CJounty. Time population figures are from the January, 1962, state census, latest figures available. Senator Bowers said this morning that he is in favor of the reapportionment arrangements worked out in the Senate reapportionment committee of which he is a member. "On the basis of population represented," he ' pointed out, "the new arrangement certainly puts the representation on a more equal basis." "In order to accomplish this," he added, "some of the western Kansas districts take on much more territory." He explained that by geographical measurements the distance across some of the new western Kansas districts will be equal to the distance from Kansas City to Wichita. 10 m 55 10 p. m. 24 .51 .50 11 a. m 58 11 p. m 47 Noon 1 p. m. 2 p .m. 3 p. m. 4 p. m. 6 p. m. 6 p. m. 7 p. m, 8 p. m. .56 Midnight 44 58 .67 .69 .67 .65 .59 .55 1 a. m, 2 a. m. 3 a. m. 4 a. m. 5 a. m. 6 a. m. 7 a. m. 8 a. m. 41 40 38 .......3' 35 36 37 40 For a number of years a report, or rumor, has been circu- ated in Ottawa concerning the alleged payment of funds by the itate highway department for re>air work on South Willow Street >avament. The report was circulated fol- owing the use of that street as a detour while a part of South Wain Street was being repaved several years ago. According to the report, the state provided funds for repair- ng the street after traffic of the lighways through Ottawa had damaged it with heavy use as a detour. The story circulated also stated that the money was never used for that purpose, and there have been questions concerning the report each time the Ottawa's Memorial Auditorium is to have a new roof in the near future. The city commissioners last night approved the quotation o: Peterson Construction Co., of Ot tawa for the roof project at a price of $1,650. One other bid was submitted that of Perry Roofing Co., Ottawa', at $1,725. The Ottawa Lions Club recent ly has modernized the lobby ol the auditorium. * * * To Put Gates On The Levees The city will proceed in th< near future with construction o gates at the ramps which lead on to the flood protection levees, i was announced at the meeting of the city commissioners las night.

Last night at the meeting of the city commissioners, City Clerk Don Capper said he has searched the city records back over a considerable period of years and can find no record of such a contribution of funds by the state. Inquiry was made at Topeka, and the city was informed that the state highway department has no record of such a contribution. Capper also said that his predecessor in the city clerk's position, L. I. Crater, said he has no recollection of such a transfer of funds from the state to the city. To Study Sewer Needs In Highland Heights Area Don Jones, acting for Mrs. Elsie Roberts, owner of the property in Highland Heights Addition in the south part of Ottawa, has requested sewer facilities for the area. He made the request at the meeting of the city commissioners last night, and the commissioners referred him to City En- ginner Robert Lister who will work out details of the sewer facilities needed for planned development of portions of the area. Also in regard to improve* * * about hav- in his new which is "Elbow Lounge" City commissioners last night approved one application for a beer license and delayed, temporarily at least, the approval of another. Clifford Gibson was granted a license for sale of beer at 1205 N. Main, the new name for the tavern being "The Elbow Lounge." The commissioners delayed action on the application of Allen Reed who asked for a license to sell beer at 120 E. Dundee Street at a place to be known as "Reed's Kozy Komer." Holding up the approval for the present is the question of the manner in which the building will be altered to meet ordinance requirements for beer establishments. The ordinance requires that a clear view of the interior of the establishment can be had by anyone on the outside of the building.
