School Tax Levy Compares Well In Area The Postville FFA Chapter hold their regular monthly meeting on Monday. January 9. The main item of business was the raising of greenhands to the degree of chapter farmer. In order to achieve this degree an individual must have productively invested at least $50.00 in a farming program and must be regularly enrolled, in a vocational agriculture course. A rat control program was discussed and was decided by the chapter to conduct such a program as a community service project. The program will go into effect immediately. February 11 was set as the date for an FFA skating party. The chapter voted to extend the invitation to all students of the high school. The chapter will take a school bus allowing free transportation to all who wish. The recreation committee also reported on plans for a swimming party at the indoor pool at Fayette sometime in March. Purina Beautina. a purebred Holstein calf purchased by the McNeil feed store and managed by the local FFA chapter, was sold at a public auction in Cedar Rapids Saturday, January 14. The calf was sold for $140.00 with all proceeds going to the chapter. The purpose of the project was to teach students how to keep records on a dairy animal. The calf developed a naval rupture and required an operation in mid-December. This resulted in a setback as far as feed efficiency is concerned.
