RABIES EXPOSURE CAUSES FEAR Wednesday, February 1, 1961 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD 7 More than half a million persons are bitten by animals each year, About 23 of these persons die from rabies. Although the death toll is rela tively small, the fear of rabies caus es severe anxiety, for it is common knowledge that there is no cure or recovery once the disease has de veloped. Every year nearly 60,000 Americans exposed to rabies must take the expensive, painful series I of 14 to 21 daily vaccinations. Any animal bite should be re, garded as serious until it is prove that the animal did not have rabies in Iowa rabies has been reported in skunks and cattle, as well as cats and dogs. Bats also have been known to be rabid. All animals can get rabies. The infection is caused by a virus which! is in the saliva and nervous system of the infected animal. In order to infect, the saliva must get into a! break or cut in the skin, as when a rabid animal bites. Bites about the head are the most serious, since the virus then has a short distance to travel to the brain. Bites through clothing are less serious than those to the bare skin, as the saliva may be absorbed by the cloth. There is no easy wav to recognize a rabid animal. Many animals with rabies don't foam at the mouth, nor are they particularly vicious or unmanageable. Beware of any animal showing an unexplained chanee in behavior, followed by excitability or paralysis. Never kill an animal susnccted of rabies; confine it under the supervision of a veterinarian. If it is killed early, (he disease may not be developed and it may not be possible to tell from the brain if the animal had rabies. If the animal is alive and well at the end of two weeks, it is fairly certain that rabies did not exist. If the animal dies, arrange through your veteri- ? I narian for laboratory examination of the brain. One good way to control rabies is to have all pets vaccinated by your veterinarian. YOU CAN'T SELL UN-TESTED SEED The state of Iowa is expected to have receipts of $174 million each of the next two years. Thats the word from H. D. Wicker, assistant ! state comptroller. His estimate is [based on present tax rates. Wicker, in an appearance before the Iowa senate appropriations committee, said state receipts totaled $165 million for the year ended last June 30 and collections for the current fiscal year ending June 30 are estimated at $168 million. Wicker told the committee that state department askings, including capital improvements, totaled $259 million a year for the next two years. State department appropriations for the 1956-61 biennium have totaled $171 million a year, including $12 million for capital improvements. The assistant state comptroller said the state unencumbered balance on July 1 was placed at $44, • 300,000, but that figure has been re vised upward. He declined to say what the state expects the balance will be this coming July 1. Governor Norman A. Erbe is expected to deliver his budget message to a joint session of the legislature on Thursday, February 2. In his message he is expected to call for a state budget of $189.5 million a year. School Legislation. It's no secret in statehouse corridors that many lawmakers are unhappy with the state board of public instruction and the manner in which schools have been removed from the state's accreditation list. First word of the situation came following a closed meeting of the house schools committee, attended by the state board of public instruction and Paul Johnston who has been named to succeed J. C. Wright as state superintendent of schools. Chairman Richard Stephens Ainsworth Republican, of the House committee said it would be a fair statement to say committee members had been highly critical of the state officials. He said committee members believe state school officials should establish more definite minimum standards for approval of local schools. In fact, some legislators are toying with the idea of setting out the minimum standards by law rather than having the state department of public instruction draft these standards. The state board removes schools off the list when they fail to meet state standards and these schools become ineligible for state school aid. It's reported one legislatoor told the state board it should not have power to disapprove schools, claiming such power was granted by the legislature unintentionally^ As a result of legislative disapproval of state school policies, a bill has been introduced in both houses of the legislature to abolish the elected state board of public instruction and replace it with a board appointed, by the governor. Also, 28 representatives have filed a bill seeking a bipartisan study of Iowa's public school system. The legislators have requested appointment of a 13 member committee to take a good look at "Iowa has the largest population of any two-judge state in the United States," he declared, "and the population ratio per judge is twice that of any other district in the eighth circuit." Highway Patrol. The Iowa highway patrol made 46,677 arrests for hazarrous moving traffic violations in 1960, according to chief David Herrick. This is a 25 per cent increase over 1959—an all-time record high. Herrick said hazardous moving ! violation arrests in 1959 totaled school laws and operations. The I committee would work between legislative sessions and make recommendations to the next general assembly in 1963. Judicial Reform. A proposed constitutional amend 36,600. He said the increase in enforcement "is a tribute to the individual patrolman's attention to duty." Reviewing the 1960 report, Herrick said patrol arrests for speeding increased from 14,191 to 18,340? illegal passing from 4,280 to 5,100: ment to take judges out of policies j drunken driving from 1,134 to 1,234, is on its second-go-around in the I and stop, sign violations from 2,887 legislature. The proposal, passed two years ago, must be approved by the 59th general assembly and then be approved by a vote of the people before it becomes part of the state constitution. It is expected to draw heavy fire in the senate where Senator D. C. Nolan, Iowa City Republican, has vowed to renew efforts to defeat it. Iowas Interstate. Harry J. Bradley, Jr., chaiman of the Iowa Highway Commission, has revealed Iowa's share of interstate road construction funds has been increased by about $8,280,000. Bradley said Iowa's share of interstate money has been increased from $20,550,000 to $28,835,000. Third Judge. U. S. Senator Bourke B. Hickenlooper has introduced a bill in the U. S. Senate on behalf of himself and Senator Jack Miller to establish an additional federal district court judge for Iowa. Senator Hicken looper said that Iowa's two district courts are overloaded and presently handle as many cases as three average federal courts. "There is a definite need for an additional fedeiul judge in Iowa," said Senator Hickenlooper, "and I feel certain that this session of congress will authorize one. However, the authorization probably will come in an omnibus bill cereating 25 or 30 new federal judgeships and will not be done on a separate state-by-state basis." Senator Hickenlooper said if the new judge is authorized he "probably will serve on a rotating basis in the two districts and it will not mean additional personnel in the federal court districts." Senator Hickenlooper has sponsored a bill proposing a third judgeship to be created for Iowa in each session of the congress since 1953, and he has supported each of the omnibus judgeships bills reported out by the senate judiciary committee. to 3,468. Other 1960 arrest totals were reckless driving 980; driving without a valid license, 11,245; faulty equipment, 4,817; driving while under license suspension. 398; failure to dim lights, 340. In addition to arrests, the patrol last year also issued 118.310 faulty equipment tickets requiring repair of vehicles, and 30,636 warning memorandum tickets. Chief Herrick said the use of highway patrol spotter planes played a large part in the sharp increase in speeding arrests during the year. Two Presidential Inaugurations? Washington will be the scene of two presidential inaugurations this year if Congressman Fred Schwengel has his way—Kennedy's which took place on January 20 and the re-enactment of Abraham Lincoln's first inauguration on March 4. The March 4th date marks the 100th anniversary of Lincoln's first inauguration. Schwengel sees it as one of top events of the Civil War Centennial Year and has introduced a joint resolution to commemorate the date with a joint session of congress and a replay of the 1861 inaugural. FRESHMAN INTELLIGENCE Currently, 86 per cent of the freshman class at The State University of Iowa graduated in the top half of their high school classes — this percentage having increased from 71 per cent to 86 pec cent in four yars. SATELLITE DATA Some 3.000 cans of tape-recorded data received from Explorer VII satellite by nearly 30 receiving stations around the world have already been shipped to The State University of Iowa Data Reduction Center in the University Physics Building for decoding and interpretation.

The seller must display on a seed tag or placard: . 1. The germination percentage. 2. Calendar month and vear and seed was tested, and 3. the name and number of each kind of secondary noxious weed seed present. Everson points out that the seller must guarantee that his agricultural seed contains no primary weed seed . . . seed of quackgrass, perennial peppergrass, leafv spurge, field bindweed, horse nettle, Russian knapweed, Canada thistle or oerennial sow thistle.
