The number has been increasing a little over 4 per cent during the past three years. By 1970, the department said, the nation will need 99.5 million head of beef cattle compared with 74.9 million now. But to produce this number of cattle, there will have "to be an annual, increase of 14 million acres of grazing land, the department said. Pasture Required It takes 5.4 acres of pasture or grazing land to produce the equivalent of a year's supply of feed for one animal. The government is now operating a cropland conversion program which is expected to move 10 million acres of land from crops, to grazing next year and around 40 million by 1970. But this 10 million acres would pro? vide only about 70 per cent of the increased feed needed for expanding beef production next year. guage Behavior Problem," Sept, IS.

Police and members of the Henry County sheriff's department received a tip Tuesday that a teen-age boy was carrying a gun.

Officials said a young girl, a parolee from Geneva School for Girls, accompanied the lad on one night when they entered three places. Thefts were reported April 27 and June 21 at the Army Surplus Store; May 24, June 6 and 21 at the Offerle Oil Co., and May 9, 14, 24 and June 21 at Ward's Hatchery.

Henry Board Acts for New School Aide CAMBRIDGE - The Henry County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to furnish an office for a county school psychologist and to form a committee to study the Foods Surplus Commodities Pr- gram. The psychologist's office will be in the building with the county superintendent of schools. Opposition to the measure was based on the contention that no money has been appropriated for a psychologist, and only six schools have ogreed to hire a county psychologist. Iener Olson, Maurice Goembel, Thomas Morgan, Jacob Gottsch and Rollin Hofmeister opposed the motion. The surplus food program is designed to give food stored by the federal government to families qualifying for the aid. The food available includes beans, butter, cheese, corn meal, dry milk, flour, lard, canned meat, rice, rolled oats and peanut butter. State Pays Costs Those eligible in Henry County would receive the food once a month by truck. The state will pay for the cost of the truck and driver, but the county must furnish an individual to ride with the driver-, and help unload the food. The supervisors determine eligibility from an application filed by the families. A surplus commodity card will be issued to qualified persons by the board. The committee members, Frank Verbeck, Walter Pobanz and Wallace Good will report to the board on its findings at the meeting Aug. 13. Scott Creelman, Dartmouth r oot- ball captain, has played in 26 consecutive winning football games. UNDSTROM'S CALLS THEM SUPER VALUES Come See and Youtt Agree!
