Newly or re-elected City Commissioners take office in the first meeting following the election, but not so on the Board of Education. The two new members, elected last April, and the one re-elected member, didn't start their terms until last night. Ixmving the board last night wore two veteran members who did not seek re-election last spring and who have earned the right to hang up their hata of public service. While they have very capable replacements, the board will miss tho wisdom and counsel of Helen Dale and Andy Erhart. Both have made great contributions to public education in this community, and have put forth considerable effort in behalf of our schools. Their sacrifice of time — many long evenings which could have been spent at home with their families — and their burden of heavy responsibility place them in the debt of all citizens here. They, arid the several other local citizens who have served on the school board, have both our gratitude and admiration. Their's is not sm easy task, the bouquets are few, and the complaints «re many. Those of us on the Telegram staff who have drooped eyelids on several long-night sessions can testify first-hand of the demands put on our school board members. Thank you, Helen, Andy, your colleagues and predecessors, for a job well done. Continuing an Investment A campaign Is underway to raise $35,000 for research facilities at the Garden City Branch Experiment Station. For those who may ask why a branch of tax-supported Kansas Slate University needs any donations, it is well to KD back into history. This station was established here more than 50 years ago. Farmers and farm interests in this area — realizing the potential of agriculture here — raised $0,000 to drill an irrigation and made 320 acres of land available for research. Now we can look back and realty the wisdom of this $6,000 investment. Indirectly, the 1963 efforts are to carry on work started with the $6,000. Much information on special- ity crops under irrigation is needed to expand them afttl the industries that accompany them. It is planned to ask the state legislature to match. the $35,000 for a total of $70,000. This would almost double bath the research date produced and the time for experiments — simply by making year-round research possible. Responsibility for raising the $35,000 has been taken by the station's advisory committee — composed of Southwest Kansas farmers and representing 26 counties. The drive comes just after a below-average wheat harvest, in the midst of prolonged hot weather, and with some other fund campaigns due to start soon. But knowing Southwest Kansans, the money will be raised.

By FRANK TROTMAN ONE THING that every community seems to have in common is a pvoup of senior citizens living out their days of retirement observing the young 1 folks proing about the day's business. No particular size community has a monopoly on these fraternal gatheriiiKs. The old timers can be found sitting around the general merchandise store in small villages or sitting on the hand rail of a basement establishment in larger cities. Every day they see things going- on that provide them with hours of conversation. * * * BACK IN the old days when passenger trains .., ran every hour on the hour, the depot j was their favorite gathering place. i They'd pull out their watches' to check j trains arriving or departing. They were ,j' authorities on time-tables. ; * But in the "jet ape" living of today, •-] there aren't many passenger trains run- H ning any more. The old timers have to | find somewhere else to hang out. I know of one Kansas town that even has an ordinance against loitering in the business district. It's sad. * * * WHAT PROMPTED these thoughts about the old timer? The other day Bill Brown told me he wanted to put the press up front in the new Telegram building and phk'e a "spit and whittle" bench out side where those interested could watch the press run. 1 think it would be a public service. * * * T11H PRESS won't be up front, however and d'arden City has an ordinance against such benches on the sidewalk.
