Kimber Awning Co- By TIMOTHY HARPER Associated Press Writer TOMAH, Wis. (AP)-"This town isn't much of a convention center. I mean, the Republican or Democratic conventions will never be held here. So I guess this rodeo is the biggest thing that will ever happen to Tomah." Uke most of the 5,647 residents of this southwestern Wisconsin farming community, snowmobile dealer Ben I-arry was talking about the National High School Rodeo, scheduled to begin here Monday and run through Aug. 11. Sponsors see the national publicity surrounding the rodeo, billed as the largest in history, as a means of bringing new money and new blood to a tired little town. Dozens of other small towns have annual festivals celebrating everything from tulips and watermelons to hoboes and antique aircraft, but many tow- nfolk think Toman has bitten off more than it can chew. They argue that while other small towns spend a few thousand dollars to attract a few thousand visitors, the rodeo will cost $400,000 and draw 90,000 spectators, not counting the 1,200 teen-age cowboys and cowgirls from 28 states. The skeptics fear the rodeo, being held east of the Mississippi for the first time in its 28-year history, will be a Woodstock-style happening for the chaps-and-spurs set. "If you took a survey here two or three months from now I'd question whether very many people would want it here again," said Larry. Actually, the often-troubled mechanics of bringing the rodeo to Toman are typical of the difficulty in staging any major event in a small town. In 1970, after the state rodeo association bid for this year's event, a handful of area businessmen organized to bring the rodeo to Tomah. Since then, the promoters have found finances the biggest thorn under their saddle. They scrounged for pledges, but still had to raise nearly $50,000 in a last-ditch radio telethon last summer to firm up the site. They wrote in vain to major foundations and federal agencies, and promised to build a new barn and grandstand on the fairgrounds to elicit $55,000 from the City Council and school board. The logistics of where the rodeo people are going to eat and CROSSWORD PUZZLE sleep have some natives fretting, even though promoters say there will be plenty yi room in . motels and campsites within a 40-mile radius. But the horse lovers overlook the qualms. To them, the rodeo is a clean-cut slice of Americana that provides a wholesome outlet for youngsters. "These are good kids, and it's a great activity for them," said rural Sparta farmer Gordon Gilbertson, whose son Uuane, 17, and daughter I,u Ann, 18, are in the nationals for the second straight year. "The kids in the rodeo won't cause any trouble," said Duane. "If there's any hell raising itwill be by local kids."

NEW YOKK(AP).-The nation's top four mass merchandisers report record sales in July were boosted by increased demand for such seasonal items as air conditioners, pools, sporting goods and barbecue equipment. The highest over-the-year sales increase of 23.4 per cent was reported Thursday by the third largest retailer, S.S. Kresge of Troy, Mich. Kresge said in the four weeks that ended July 27 it posted $407 million in sales, compared with $329.8 million in the similar period a year ago. The smallest rise in sales, 3.1 per cent, was recorded by the largest retailer: Sears, Roebuck & Co. of Chicago. The company tallied $1.03 billion in sales compared with $1 billion a year ago. A Scars spokesman blamed cooler, drier weather in some of the firm's marketing areas for hindering sales of air conditioners, dehumidifiers and lawn mowers. The availability of re- frigerators and freezers was limited by a strike. J.C. Penney Co., Inc., based here, tallied a 14.2 per cent sales rise to $478.7 million over the $419.2 million in July, 1973. Penney credited strong sales in summer white goods, sporting goods, outdoor furniture and barbecue equipment for the increase. Montgomery Ward & Co., Inc. of Chicago, the fourth largest retailer and a subsidiary of Marcor, Inc., said sales last month totaled J263.2 million, 12.2 per cent over the sales of $234.5 million counted a year ago. HENS NEED LESS ELECTRICITY RACINE, Wis. (AP) - It seems even the nation's hens are doing their bit to help ease the energy crunch. Researchers at Cornell University have found that if the light in henhouses is reduced from 16 hours a day to 10, the hens lay more eggs. 1. Oppose 5. Points 10. Arab's headcord 11. Get 13.

"The fez is a tall red brimless woo) felt cap with a colored tassel of silk or wool. It was formerly a characteristic of Moslem dress in the Middle East. It was first made in the city of Fez, Morocco, considered one of the holy places by the Mohammedans. There are more than 100 mosques in Fez. All fezzes were originally colored with a dye made from red berries found in Morocco. The same color can now be duplicated by chemical dyes. The fez, often called the tarboosh, is worn in Turkey, Egypt and in North Africa. In 1927, Mustafa Kemal Pasha, the president of Turkey, ordered all Turkish men to wear hats of the European style. However, many Turks still wear the fez. They evidently prefer this - close fit-' ting cap to the other kinds of hats. Some organizations in the United States use the fez as a part of their ceremonial dress at parades and conventions. 8-3 ( Niel Johnson of Santa Cruz, Calif., wins a prize for this question.

(AP) — A 14-year-old Burnsville girl who died in her home Wednesday night apparently had been inhaling fumes from a pan spray. Police confirmed reports Thursday that Debra I.ynn Devito and a neighbor girl had been reading a magazine article that described the effects of inhaling fumes from the spray before the incident. The pan spray is used to keep food from sticking during cooking. An autopsy was to be performed to determine the exact cause of death. The victim's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Angelo Devito, told police that their daughter and her friend were alone in the family room about midnight when Debra collapsed on the floor after inhaling fumes from the aerosol can she had taken from the kitchen. Efforts to revive her failed. Dear Dr. Thosteson: Over a year ago our son had rheumatic fever. A cardiology doctor said the fever had not damaged his heart. He kept him in the hospital for a week. Then he had to have complete bed rest for about two months. The only medication he gave was aspirin, about 15 a day. After he came home the doctor kept him on aspirin and penicillin and said he would have to take penicillin for the next 10 or 12 years. Recently I took him back for a checkup. The doctor said he is in perfect condition. My son said the penicillin was causing sore throat. The doctor changes to an antibiotic twice a day. Our son is almost 15. My question is: do you agree with this form of medication? If he is in perfect health, why should he have to take medication for so long? We are worried about the amount he is taking. When I got his medication last time the druggist said we must have a really sick boy, which we haven't. So naturally that alarmed us. — Mrs. P.M.G. I hope you realize that your boy wasjucky not to have heart damage, because rheumatic fever is notorious for inflaming the valves of the heart and causing permanent damage. Rheumatic fever is caused by a streptococcus infection. Why it causes rheumatic fever in some patients and not others is not understood, but it is so. Once a person has rheumatic fever, he is likely to get it again whenever he encounters the strep germ — strep throat is probably the commonest form of it. And that's why rheumatic fever patients are kept on penicillin for years after the original attack — to make sure * MO MORE- EATING FUOW&R S ON BOAKD." •****• Fix IT AND repair faucets, car penter, handyman.

ROSTAD, Section 32, Maine Township, Uwis Tysdal, Auctioneer < Dairy & Farm I **** that the strep germ won't attack them again. For, you see, repeated attacks of rheumatic fever will cause progressive heart damage. Your druggist unquestionably knows this — but when your son wanted to change from penicillin, which led the doctor to substitute another antibiotic, that misled the druggist. He is used to continuing prescriptions of penicillin for rheumatic fever but not used to other antibiotics which are used for that only when a change is required. So by all means continue the medication. Otherwise you risk more attacks of rheumatic' fever and perhaps a sadly damaged heart. I have this one thought. Quite often penicillin is given in a longlasting form, an injection once a month or thereabouts, in such cases. You might discuss that with your doctor. Your son may be ready for it. But I have one reservation. Why the tablets made his throat sore raises a question. Could he be developing a sensitivity to penicillin? If so, he will have to use some substitute. Tests should show whether he is indeed sensitive to it, or whether he could switch to once - a - month injections. Dear Dr. Thosteson: My mother who is 69 loves chocolates to such an extent that we are afraid they will do her some harm. Can they? She is slim and it doesn't seem to add any weight at all. She also loves eggnog and we are wondering if that would hurt her. — D. & S. If she were getting fat my answer would be different. But under the circumstances, my advice is to stop fretting about how much chocolate she cats or how many eggnogs. Dear Dr. Thosteson: When a man is 74 would an ulcer on the ankle, caused by varicose veins, be likely to heal if the veins were removed ? Would the presence of the ulcer make the surgery difficult?—I..E. Yes, the ulcer would be likely to heal, and that may be virtually the only way to get it to heal. Presence of the ulcer should not interfere with the surgery. Troubled with varicose veins?
