The cold air is keeping overnight temperatures below normal for most local stations. The cold spot of the Gem State Wednesday nigh I was Stanley, wilh 41 below zero. FairfieW dropped lo 17 below and many olher stations in Ihe southeast highlands were below zero. Other overnight low temperatures reported this morning were 11 below zero at Idaho Falls, 2 above al Pocatcllo and Ontario, Ore., 15 al Lewislon and 16 at Boise. Clear skies and light winds prevailed over most of Idaho during the night, but Southeast Idaho experienced low clouds and some light snow. No significant amounts of measurable accumulation were reported at Pocalello or Idaho Falls. The main cause of this precipitation activity was low level moisture IrappccJ in (he Upper Snake Itiver Valley. Conditions this morning have improved over Southeastern Idaho, which will join the rest of Ihe stale today in cold, but sunny weather. A Pacific front off the Washington coast is expected to spread cloudiness inlo North Idaho by tonight and into Southern Idaho Friday.

Beef growers get first 75 checks OGDEN, Ulah -- Continuing high prices for sugar have prompted the Amalgamated Sugar Company this week to make a supplemental payment, its firsl of 1975, lo local sugar- bcel growers. Under the provisions of their participating contracts wilh the company, local growers in Idaho, Ulah, and Oregon will receive individual checks amounting to $13 million by this weekend. This will bring the company's lotal payments to date lo $64 million for Ihe 1974 beet crop. Utah growers will receive $635.000; Mini-Cassia growers will receive $3.1 million; Twin Falls growers will receive $1.6 million; Elwyhee growers will receive $855.000; and Nampa- N'yssa growers will receive $6.7 million. This initial payment for 1975 follows very closely the company's payment picture of lasl year when growers received a supplemental payment in early February. This initial 1974 payment was followed by a series of supplemental payments throughoul Ihe year because of (he unpredictable marketing condilions t h a t existed al that time, and which continue today. Company officers said Ihis early 1975 payment is based, primarily, upon marketing pressures in the world to buy sugar. Annually, the Uniled Stales musl buy approximately 50 per cent o' its sugar from foreign countries. Domestic producers provide 'lie balance used.

McFarland said CETA was Ihe best way to cut Ihe unemploymenl rale in Idaho. He said, "We realized that CETA was a new kind of instrument." The pay rate for the jobs made available under Ihe CETA program will be $2.75 lo $3 an hour for the workers, Andrus said. North Idaho also learned about insurance programs for the unemployed from Jack Anacabe, chief of benefit payments, Idaho State Department of Employment. Anacabe said Ihe slate has "built a .whole arsenal of weapons lo figh! poverty.'" Under Ihe Iwo insurance programs-thc Regular Unemployment Insurance.Program and the Special Unemployment Insurance Program-iho only people in the ilale who arc not covered are !l»: self en'!*V« ! i"! l «« 1 '*) officials. To receive unemployment insurance a person must be looking, available, and wanting work. The regular amount paid by Ihe insurance programs is a minimum of $17 a week for 10 weeks lo a maximum of $83 a week (or 26 weeks. Anacabe told the representatives thai in fdaho one million dollars is paid ou( weekly in unemploymenl checks. There arc 15,000 checks scnl out each week to Idaho residents who arc unemployed. Andrus said this money is "high velocity dollars" because il is pul back into the money stream in Idaho. Two state officials remained in Ihe Couer d'Alene and Lewislon areas lo help county officials work oul Ihe programs. They will explain and clarify (he programs lo officials and lo local depnrlmenls of employmenl in Ihesc areas so lhal Iwal officials can make the programs available lo Ihe public. Andrus said his concern is lhat Ihe public should know of Ihe programs because "Unemployment is (tic largos! problem we face." lie also poinlcd oul thai anyone with questions about Ihe programs should notify their local departments of rmplnymrnl for information. Rodeo yearbook ads stir up confusion Obituaries 1 N'AMPA--Confusion c o n c e r n i n g solicitation of advertising support for a slatewide rodeo yearbook is causing concern among directors of Ihe Snake River Stampede and Caldwell Night Rodeo. Gene Richey, president of Ihe Snake River Stampede board of directors, expressed his displeasure today over rumors that somebody was seeking adverlising support for a program in competition with Ihe Stampede souvenir program. Similar concern was echoed by Gene Graves, a director of the Caldwell Night Rodeo. The misunderstanding results from the efforts of the Roger McGinnis public relations firm in Boise to promote a statewide rodeo yearbook containing information and history about all the rodeos in the stale. Contacted Ibis morning, McGinnis said the yearbook, "The Idaho Rodeo Review," is being sponsored by Ihe Idaho Cowboys Association (ICA). But according to McGinnis, advertising solicitation by his firm for Ihe yearbook has not begun in Canyon Counly al this time. "We have nol gone inlo Canyon Counly and won't sandbag any one area, but will make il a stale publication," McGinnis promised. "Il is not designed lo pinpoint any one rodeo, but all Idaho rodeos." McGinnis said if overtures lowurd potential advertisers in the area are already taking place Ihey arc unauthorized by him. The public relations executive further explained lhal the book will contain history of rodeo in Idaho from all levels-the tCA (o the RCA and will include stories about professional rodeo slars who started in Idaho. He expects advertising support from the entire stale, nol an isolaled area. , For many years Bela Sigma Phi sororily members in Nampa and Caldwell have handled advertising sales (or the rodeo programs and will continue lo do il this year. In Nampa, solicitatiqn will begin early in February, according lo Rulh Winnicki, city council president for the four Nampa sorority chapters. The local adverlising campaign benefits both (he sorority and Ihe rodeo, according to Mrs. Winnicki. She said the ads pay for the book and (he profits, if any, are distributed equally between Ihc'stampede board and the sorority. The Nampa sorority president said lhal some rumors had reached her (hat Ihe ICA project and Ihe local rodeo projects had been combined. "This is not true." she said. "It is unforlunale that some misinformation has been given lo various businesses concerning the ICA. indicating the advertising was for the Snake River Slampede program," Hichey said. "Bela Sigma Phi will solicit advertising for the program as Ihey have in the pasl." The stalemenl was echoed by directors of Ihe Caldwell Night Rodeo, according lo Graves, who verified thai Bela Sigma Phi also will continue lo handle their advertising campaign.
