Rogers .-. said parents whose children were in parochial schools '•• should view property tax relief as a form of subsidizing nonpublic schools. Money saved in lower property taxes could be applied by parents of parochial students to the operation of their schools,' he said v Rep. John M. Guy, R-jmonti-' cello, was one of the four voting against the measure. He said he felt it was unconstitutional. Rep. Austin Barker, D-Attica, also opposed the bill, saying appropriations for nonpublic schools would rise in years to come.

The REAP program, which ^replaces the old Agricultural Conservation Program, will emphasize anti-pollution efforts in rural areas throughout the county, according to the chairman. The. oldest and largest pollution problem is /soil stabilization,. Mr. Retherford said. Hundreds of millions of tax dollars each year are spent by National, State and local governments in dredging streams and rivers and in filtering and reclaiming polluted water. These efforts are larr gely due to loosened top soil that decides to "go to town". REAP is designed to reduce these costs and improve the environment in other ways. . The old ACP program which contributed to a substantial reduction in soil erosion has now been redirected specifically to reduce pollution which affects communities. One of these, of course, is animal waste. Several practices will be offered with cost-sharing for individual farmers or groups of farmers who can effectively help cure these local problems. Signup is expected to begin March 8 at the Tipton Co. ASCS county office, located at ,118 . South Independence in Tipton, Ind.
