(AP)-The kids of Kane are ripping up ragwood like mad this week so everybody else can relax next week. That's'when the big late-summer hay fever season begins. Across the country as many as 20 million Americans will start sneezing, coughing and using up handkerchiefs by the dozen as the microscopic pollen from the pesky plant takes to the ail- on its annual mission of misery. But not in Kane. All of the ragweed will have been ripped from the ground, carted off to the city dump and burned. They've been doing it for 15 MEN'S OPEN Summer Sandals Cleland talked the city fathers and the Chamber of Commerce into sponsoring the annual ragweed contest for kids. All this week they, will pull it out and take it downtown where it's weighed and loaded on big trucks. On Saturday, the winner is decided and gets a $25 bond. /'There are lots of other prizes for runners-jip," Cleland said. "And everybody gets 50 cents for the trouble." Last year, three 2^ ton truckloads of ragweed were burned. Kane's pollen count was .1. Even that was a disappointment :o people who had gotten used ;o .00. Black, tan or mahogany. Cushioned insoles.

"If I wouldn't go to Kane," said Edna Wise of Harmony, 200 miles away, "I'd go to the hospital every year." Every suiiim*: Mrs. Wise wisely spends a month in Kane'.s only was motel. Ragweed-ripping is the pet project of Dr. Charles Cleland, a local doctor who specializes in allergies. "My ideas don't jibe with some of the experts," he said. 'Some of them say the pollen rises but of the Midwest and floats through the air all across the East. But I say everybody grows their own. "You find the miserable little weed in vacant lots, near factories, beside walks, everywhere in a city," he said. That's why cities have pollen counts in the 60s and 70s, when a count of 10 is enough to put a sufferer in agony, Cleland said. Ragweed pollinates on Aug. 15 usually and lasts until the first frost. It grows in most sections of the United States, and experts estimate that 10 per cent of the population suffers from it.
