Three young men from Repub- liclanri are certainly deserving of the congratulations of many people. I'm referring to William Schroerler of rural Woonsocket, Edward Burian of Kimball and William Walsh of Mitchell who have dedicated their lives in the work of God. All three were recently ordained. Rev. Schroeder was ordained into the ministry of (he American Lutheran Church last week end at Lane and the Rev. Burian and the Rev. Walsh were ordained into the holy priesthood of the Roman Catholic Chunh at the Holy Family Church in Mitchell last Saturday. My personal congratulations and best wishes to these three young men. * * * MORE CONGRATS! — And certainly another young man from Republicland deserves more than just a tip of the hat. As you may have read, Edwin J. Buckingham III of Chamberlain was listed as a "Presi- idential Scholar" and will be honored as one of two South Dakotans at ceremonies at the White House next Tuesday when he and some 120 others will receive special scholarship medallions from President Lyndon B. Johnson. I liked "E. J.s" reference to this high honor in his "Skcet Loads" column in the Chamberlain Register which bespeaks of the modesty of this outstanding scholar. He wrote: "I was very surprised when I received the telegram from the President of the United States informing me that he had named me a Presidential Scholar. Something like that is rather hard to comprehend. For a while I went around saying to myself, 'You're going to the White House where the President will give you an award.' "The answer kept coming back, 'Sure, fella, now why don't we go to the nice psychiatrist and tell him all about this?"' Well, it was true — and EBJ III will receive a medallion from the President. * * * CIRCUS! — A little late, but a reminder that the Woonsocket Kiwanis Club is sponsoring a circus at the old ball park location tonight (Friday) at 6 o'clock and 8 o'clock. The Woou- socket Boy Scouts will benefit from part of the proceeds of this circus. * * * SQUARE DANCERS! — Another affair for tonight — but. List Outstanding Students at Springfield High By Republic New* Service SPRINGFIELD - Students were honored at the annual Awards Day held May 25.

Named as outstanding students were Luann Genant and Gene Halsey, freshmen; Pamela S c h a in b e r and Bob Poelstra, sophomores; David Liiideman and Marilyn De Boer, juniors; and Judy Uken and Virgil Wynia, seniors. maybe this notice will reach some people in time The Redfield Square Dancers .will appear tonight at 8 o'clock at the Armoiir High School gym. These dancers, from the Red- j field State Hospital and School, <who recently appeared in Mitchell, are directed by Mr. and I Mrs. Kenneth Sargent of Redfield. The affair is sponsored by the Douglas - Mix Association for | Retarded Children. Try to get there, won't you? * * * FINE EVENT! - Congratulations to Richard Parsons and the many Woonsocket business- j men. who had responsibilities for presenting the big ( area dairy day in that city this week. Dick was the general chairman. This was the first of six to be held in South Dakota — and a lot of hours went into planning and presenting the day-long event which was filled with entertainment and varied activities. + * * CAR WASH! — Have been asked to mention that the Junior Catholic Daughters of Kimball are sponsoring a car wash on Saturday, June 5 at 9 o'clock a.m. at the Chmela Gas Station. Proceeds will be used to send a girl to the national CDA con- ivention In Chicago. * * * ROAD-E-O—Liked the head lin e in the Gregory Timns- Advocate over the story and pictures of the Jaycee-sponsored Teenage Road-e-o. It read: "You 'Auto' Been There!" + * * FINE EVENT! — Enjoyed attending the recognition event for Bryan Parks down at Platte last Sunday afternoon. The respect which the community and former students have for the veteran Platte High School band director was attest ed to by the large crowd which turned out for the event honor ing Mr. Parks on his retirement after 40 years of service as music director. I think events like this are great! Too often communities have never had the time to "honor" many of their outstanding citizens, longtime businessmen or dedicated public servants — but then stand around to pay tribute after the person has moved away or has died. Congratulations, Mr. Parks, on four decades of dedicated service to your community. I know they have appreciated it very much.... Kidnapper Gels 10-Year Term In State Prison PIERRE (/PI - William G.

LRC Studies Savings, Loan Regulations PIERRE Mi—South Dakota's present laws governing savings and loan associations are very antiquated, the legislative research council committee on state and local government has been told. The committee, chaired by Sen. Robert Hirsch, R-Tripp, has under study a proposed re- codification of the savings and loan association law and also is studying equal pay legislation. Russ Greenfield, Sioux Falls, attorney for the state savings and loan associations, said there has been discriminate chartering of new associations in the past. "There are no strong legislative guidelines for granting or refusing new charters," he said. Greenfield said the proposed model law would give more precise definition of terms, provide minimum requirements a new association must meet to gain its charter and also establish regulations for the industry. A subcommittee was to be named to further study the matter. The equal pay legislation would provide equal pay for women workers who hold jobs comparable with men. A legislative research council staff report said South Dakota had 72,268 women in the state's labor force in 1960, with most of them employed in the clerical, service and professional fields. "Women workers in South Dakota generally receive lower full-time earnings than men primarily because of differences in the types of jobs they hold and in their education and training," the LRC report said. The report said a major factor to be considered in the adoption of an equal pay act is the cost of enforcement. If South Dakota were to adopt such an act, the report added, it is estimated enforcement costs the first year could run as high as $63,651, with estimated costs in following years of $47,251 annually.

Rustling Said Acute Problem In South Dakota BELLE FOURCHE ffi — Rustling presents the most acute problem facing the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, says the organization's president, Rodney Larson. The Fruitdale rancher, in his annual address to the association's 1965 convention Thursday, was especially concerned with difficulties in obtaining prosecutions in livestock theft cases. "If there was one problem more acute than all others during the past year," he told members at the opening session, "theft would be that one." Investigation by association agents and county and state officers "has dug up a lot of alleged cow thieves," he noted. "But when it comes time to charge'and prosecute them, every roadblock conceivable is put in the path. And this is where we come in. "We elect the county officials whose responsibility it is to prosecute. We also elect the county and circuit judges who often seem to class cattle thieves with candy-stealing children and pass sentence accordingly." Not only did Larson suggest stockmen review the records of public officials at election time, but he suggested matters be explained to "everyone with whom we have influence." But the best way to improve prosecutions, arson stated, would be to consolidate counties so they would have enough tax base to pay salaries that would attract capable people, as states attorneys as well as all county officers. "This is contrary to our principles of decentralization of government, but I'm not sure we don't have horse and buggy county government in the jet age." Turning to the state legislature's record this year, Larson termed the session "a disappointment to every conservative voter." Taxes were added and increased for needless expenditures and every bill lived or did strictly on political'consid- erations, he explained. In particular, he criticized a 50 per cent sales tax Increase and a broadened tax base "mainly to finance additional state aid to education. Education must remain the responsibility of local taxing districts, he told the convention. "It's the only way to insure careful management of school funds." . . The worst bit of legislation, in Larson's opinion, was reapportionment regardless of state constitutional requirements that it be done only in years ending in Larson urged the association take one of two steps to block reapportionment legislation: petition for a referendum or obtain a court injunction. The choice is to gather 14,000 petition signatures by June 13 or obtain $1,000 or $2,000 to test constitutionality of the legislation.

The local workers agreed that the MAA program was the easiest of the welfare programs to administer "The recipients seem to be 'satisfied and are easy to work jwith," one woiker commented.
