Many of their costumes, ranging from bridesmaids gowns to period dresses are authentic. Mrs. Stanton Sherman supplied the group with many of her own clothes including her late husband's wedding tuxedo and the cape and brown and white bolero suit the heroine Nellie wears. The period was backgrounded before sewing and collecting for the 27 costumes was begun. Costume crew members brought suitable props to rehearsal and final costume decisions made by the director, James Knott. "Carloads have already been taken back. We had 14 nights of carrying out and we were exploring attics in the 100 degree temperatures. We feel it is authentic, 1 ' Mrs. Gaffney said. Males cast members were slicked down with butchwax and "Dippety Do" to creat hair parted in the middle: Mustaches were created for five and crepe hair beards applied with spirit gum to two cast members. Some of the beards and mustaches are authentic. Three men grew their own. Index cards were compiled on each character for make up reference. The first night of make up required about three hours of experimenting, including the creation of wrinkled faces for Old Mag played by Sharon Wanger, and Sara, played by Donna Olsen. "I got an idea what each character was like during rehearsal," Miss Cawley said about the cards. The make up and costume crew appear to be successful. When Mrs. Jay Krogh brought 18-month-old Chad to his father, made up as Hi Perkins with crepe hair beard and slicked haird, Chad wouldn't have anything to do with him — he didn't recognize him.

Ferguson of Glidden is one of five state representatives named to the state school aid study committee. The committee will consider possible changes in the state foundation aid program for public schools and will make recommendations to the next session of the legislature. Ferguson is requesting all school board members, school administrators and others interested in public school finance to send him any suggestions they may have regarding changes in the present state aid formula. Ferguson, a member of the House committee which developed the present formula, said: "The state is now paying between 40 per cent and 50 per cent of local public school costs and the formula for distribution of these millions of dollars is Ken Puck Tells of Trip to Australia Ken Puck of Manning described his experiences on a trip to Australia last spring at a meeting of the Carroll Rotary club at Tony's Restaurant Monday night.

The state aid study committee will meet at least once a month until the legislature convenes in January, 1975. Others on the committee are Reps. Delwyn Stromer, John Patchett, Ingver Hansen and Wally Horn and Sens. William Hansen, Leonard Anderson, Joan Orr, Norman Rogers and James Griffin.

He showed slides of the places visited. The tour was in an area of New South Wales. In Melbourne, the capital, the group which included three lowans, visited a Ford motor car assembly plant and also a bottled gas plant. In other cities and towns they visited racing installations, paper mill, army base, volunteer fire organization, wineries, milk products plant, rice farm and mill, and "outback" station serving isolated ranchers, orchards and irrigation projects. One feature of the trip was watching a new American-made grape-picking machine in operation for the first time. Puck noted that the railroad system is uncoordinated, the various railroads having different track gauges which prevent interconnection between states. The fire departments they visited were manned by volunteers, but served entire counties, or "shires." Equipment included a flying service. Dr. James Jensen announced three of next month's programs, including; Aug. 15, talk by Supervisor Jack Thein of Carroll; Aug. 19, noon meeting at Tony's followed by a tour of the Farmland Foods plant, and Aug. 26, official visit by District Governor R. Lynn Johnson of Chariton. V. Stuart Perry announced that arrangements for the annual farmers flight night program Sept. 9 are being made. Farmers from the southwest part of the county will be treated to airplane rides over their farms. Past president lapel buttons were presented to Dr. Lynn Curry and Donald Jones by Dr. Paul D. Anneberg, on behalf of the club. Gerald Ferris, Denison Rotarian, was a guest. THE BORN LOSER Art Sonsom BUGS BUNNY by Heimdohl HAVE A DWIPPING FAUCET THATfe GETTING ON MY NERVES/ HOW MUCH TO FIX IT?

The skunk is u stocky little animal with a long pointed nose, an arched hack, short legs and a long bushy tail. It has long, blal-k, glossy fur with a double white stripe down the back. The skunk is about the size of a cat and defends itself from enemies by the use-of a pair of scent glands near the tail. If it is frightened, it squirts a smelly fluid from these glands. This vile odor usually keeps animals and humans at a distance. However, it gives fuir warning before squirting this fluid by stamping the front feet, hissing and raising its hair. Any human or animal sprayed by the skunk finds it hard to eliminate this strong, persistent odor. The common skunk lives in forest borders and open meadows. It hunts at night for mice, rats and all kinds of insects. It is helpful to the farmer because it kills animals injurious to crops. 7.-30 (Krenda Counts ofOpelika, Alabama, wins a prize for this question.
