U of I Prof Urges Summer i-r^^r 6 Exercise for Youngsters FUNNY BUSINESS IOWA CITY - Don't let the TV set immobilize your children for the summer, advises Peggy Burke, an assistant professor of physical education for women at The University of Iowa. Preschool and elementary-age children need to take part in activities which will use the large muscles if they are to develop strong bodies, the U of I professor explains. Watching worthwhile television programs an hour or two a day should be beneficial to any child, but spending hours in front of the TV set at the. expense of any vigorous physical exercise will be a mistake, she stresses. Except for toddlers, who do a lot of climbing onto chairs and laps, muscles of the arms and shoulders tend to get less use than the legs in the average pattern of activity for both children and adults. So it will be worthwhile for you to encourage such activities as tennis, archery and climbing. Field archery courses, which contain targets in the form of pictures of animals and birds spaced some distance apart, are becoming more numerous, Prof. Burke notes. One at the U of I Lake Macbride field campus takes you around a target course as you shoot arrows from a variety of sites, from hilltops to valleys. A trip around such a course could provide excellent exercise for the whole family, she suggests. Hiking and biking trips also offer opportunities for family exercise. Combine them with study of flowers, fossils and birds and they'll be educational as well. Seeing their parents enjoy exercise regularly will encourage children to follow a way of life that will keep them in good physical condition. So plan regular family exercise, Prof. Burke advises. Games involving vigorous motion such as touch football and softball can give the whole family a healthy workout, she continues. Many games can be played in your yard with little or no equipment, but if you want to provide apparatus for exercise, start with pieces which encourage climbing. Besides inviting use of the arm and shoulder muscles, climbing equipment is safer than swings and slides, another plus. Small children get exercise in simple activities such as running, jumping, skipping and hopping. MOW COME ^VOU POT OFF s " Predicts Revenue May Be $25-to-$30 Million Higher I FKSOPEDITOOTAND MM SIUOER WNWERSAW WOULD HAVE FAUUEM OM A ?ATURDA<J... AND I GOLF Of4 By Harrison Weber Iowa Daily Press Association DES MOINES — The state's fiscal experts may have underestimated revenue to the state's general fund this year by as much as $25-to-$30 million. Legislative Fiscal Director Gerry D. Rankin thinks state revenue for the fiscal year ending this June 30th may approach $890 million. That's exclusive of federal revenue sharing and road use tax money. A month ago, at the close of the legislative session, Rankin had projected receipts of $863.4 million for the year. Collections had tailed off in April, so Rankin was cautious about revising his upwards. But receipts bounced back in May to their former level. Through the first 11 months, July through May, state revenue totaled $679.3 million, an increase of $147.8 million over the corresponding period. Overall, state tax receipts are running 21.8 per cent ahead of last year. As one might suspect the big gainer has been individual income tax collections with receipts for the first 11 months up 26.9 per cent. Through May lowans had paid $340.3 million in individual income tax compared to $268.1 million for the corresponding 11 months. That represents gross collections and does not include refunds. Rankin says if individual income tax collections hold up during June, the total from this source for the year may reach $360-to-$365 million. Sales tax collections are also running ahead of last year with $233.2 million collected in the first 11 months compared to $199.6 million during the same period a year earlier; that's a gain of 16.9 percent. However, Rankin said a large portion of that increase is because of inflation. BRAHMEN'S WITH FILLED GOLD BOND SUPER DISCOUNT BOOKLETS SUPER VALU GALLON 2% SUPER VALU 5-Lb. BEET l-Lb.
