tO Galesbura Register-Moil, Golesbura, Tuesday, Aug, 6, 1963 Fourth Ward Alderman Election Required As Cudd Takes New Job MONMOUTH — A call for a special election in the Fourth Ward will be announced shortly as the result of action taken at Monday night's meeting of the City Council. Robert Cudd, present Representative Party alderman in that ward, whose business has kept him out of the city for the past few months, turned in his resignation to Mayor Allan Walters. Cudd stated that he has accepted a new position in his organization which would preclude any further attendance at council meetings. Mayor Walters expressed his regret at Cudd's resignation and acknowledged the c o m m i t tee work that Cudd had done during his weekends in Monmouth. Alderman Don Enslow, after learning that a year and nine months remained in Cudd's term, moved that a special election be called and his motion was approved unanimously. Seymour Golden, of the firm of Golden & Kutsunis of Rock Is- land, presented the annual city audit report to tr- council members and briefly ran through the report for the alderman. A 47- page booklet giving a comprehensive report of the city's operation was distributed which showed that the City of Monmouth was in fairly good condition financially. One exception was the cemetery fund which ended the fiscal year with a deficit of $17,623. The report showed that receipts for the year were $10,254 while the expense of $18,207 was incurred. Appointments Rejected The mayor again submitted the names of Roy Baynes and Michael Romano as appointments to the hospital board. Alderman Cudd moved for approval with a second by Alderman Francis Martin, but upon roll call vote the appointments were defeated by a margin of 5-3. In contrast to previous hass^s over the appointments, no discussion was held last night, but later in the evening the mayor announced the interim appointments of Baynes and Romano. Bids were opened for repair work to the 115,000-gallon elevated water tank at the south well and four companies recorded varying bids which ranged from $3,900 up to $8,293. Completion dates offered ranged from thirty to ninety days. Don McLaughlin, a member of the Missman, Stanley, Farmer & Associ- MONMOUTH Mft RoMMftf) lira*) Ml N H SI. Cormpondoai Chont 7J4-4TI1 FOR MISSED COPIES PHONE 734-4121 Before 6:30 ates firm, was asked his opinion of the bids. He stated he was familiar with the work of two of the companies, but suggested the companies submitting the lowest bids should b a . investigated before the hid was accepted. The motion was made by Alderman James Melvin that action on the bids be postponed until the next meeting, during which time the engineering firm could check on the qualifications of the lowest bidder. Seek Water Improvement McLaughlin also commented on specifications prepared for an aerator to be installed at the city's north well. He said that this installation would eliminate the offensive odor and dark color from the water, but not to expect it to happen immediately after installation. The process, he said, would probably take from six months to a year and he would not guarantee that this would eliminate the rust problem which now exists. However, he said that if further steps were necessary to correct the situation in this well that the aerator was certainly a necessary item in the program. A motion to advertise for bids was approved with bids to be received and opened at 7:30 p.m., Aug. 19, date of the next council meeting. A tax levy ordinance distributed to the aldermen called for raising $209,400. This compares to a sum of $189,013 which was received in 1963. TIus ordinance was passed by unanimous vote. Another ordinance approved without comment was one annexing the City Farm property to the City of Monmouth. Argue; Bu; Sweeper The meeting, which had progressed rather quietly other than the council's refusal to approve the mayor's appointments, ran into an argument when a pro posal was made to purchase a new street sweeper for a total price of $12,150. Aldermen Del Ohren and George Thorbeck expressed their disapproval of purchasing a new sweeper at this time mainly for the cost involved. It was brought out that it would cost approximately $4000 to repair the old sweeper now in use. After a somewhat lengthy discussion a roll call vote ended in a Roseville Entry Wins Horse Show Prizes at Jacksonville ROSEVILLE — Miss Martha Stoneburner, riding Frosty Do, in the Western Horse Show Division, won a first and second award at the Morgan County Fair in Jacksonville, Saturday.

Delivery of the machine will bo in approximately three or four weeks. In other business specifications have been prepared for installation of a new boiler in the city hall and bids are to be received by next council meeting nipht The mayor announced that, as a result of a test conducted of black-top curbing at Harmon Park, he was much in favor of purchasing a machine which could install curbing at a cost of less than fifty cents per foot. He said that the City of Bushnell has installed this type of curbing and it has proved very satisfac tory. The machine used in this operation would cost $1,295. With very little discussion the council voted to approve the purchase of the machine. Fulton Co.

Owner Frets as Sight Dims for His Guide Dog CHICAGO (UPD-For 12 years Leamon Bunch has seen the world through the eyes of his clog. But now Bouncer, the blind man's guide dog, is going blind. "It's just like getting rid of one of the family. It's worse than taking my eyes away from n/ie," the 72-year-old Bunch said. He has been blind since an accident in 1941. He doesn't know whether he will get another guide dog. Bouncer was "just like a person," he said. The dog has been going blind with cataracts. He is 14 years old. The dog and his master have been separated only twice in the 12 years they have walked the streets of the city together. Bunch said he might be too old to go into training with another dog. He said his brown and white Boxer will be sent to a strange home or perhaps put to sleep. "It's so hard to even think about letting him go when he's taken care of me for so long," Bunch said.

UNIFAX Proposed Junior College Receives Cool Reception MONMOUTH — Warren School District citizens expressed an interest in a technical or trade school rather than an academic junior college at a meeting Monday night at Warren School to discuss the proposed college. Clinton Hagemann, superintendent of the Warren District, said today the peo pie in attendance last night were most concerned over f .he possibility of a 60-cent tax rate legal under the junior college setup, allowing 50 cents pet $100 valuation for the educational fund and 10 cents per $100 for the building fund. The group last night suggested that the executive committee set a lower rate, as many junior colleges are operating on 25 cents per $100 valuation. They also favored holding off the referendum at this time, in view of the recent defeat in both Monmouth and Galesburg regarding an educational referendum.

Of course, if West opens a spade there is no problem in play, but West opens the six of trumps. At this point South can make the hand against any defense and I will devote tomorrow's article to this double dummy play, but the first problem is to find out the best line of play if you are actually at the table playing the hand normally. If East holds the king of clubs you can make 12 tricks easily, so the normal play is to lead dummy's ace of clubs and continue with the queen. Unfortunately for your purposes East plays low. You discard and West wins the trick with the king. Now if he leads a spade you go down two, but you have worked out a neat bit of camouflage. Your discard on the queen of clubs was the nine of diamonds. West is pretty sure that his partner holds an ace. It now appears that it is the ace of diamonds so he leads a diamond whereupon you take the rest of the tricks because you can discard two spades on clubs and one spade on the king of diamonds. Family Farm Not in Danger From Corporations--Briggs LINCOLN, Neb.—A farm cooperative and credit leader here te» day took exception to the claim of some agricultural authorities that the trend toward fewer and larger farms means a takeover by corporations farming in American Agriculture. The spokesman was Marvin Briggs, member of the Federal Farm Credit Board and former manag-' In Arabia, coffee is flavored with cardamom, clove, cinnamon or anise. o er of the Indiana Farm Bureau Cooperative Association. He was here today to address the general session on "Financing Our Agriculture in the Future," at t h e American Institute of Cooperation. "There are several reasons why large corporate farms are not likely to become numerous," Briggs contended. "In the first place, large farms cannot be easily aggregated into solid blocks because family farms are not frequently offered for sale. Too, land which is offered for sale tends to be absorbed by adjacent family farms. "Secondly, a large corporation farm can't be supervised looking down a production line. Superintending* 10,000 acres of farm lyid will spread a manager's talenv too thin, and costs of production per unit will increase." Predicts Drop Although Briggs believes the family farm will remain the dominant face in agriculture, he foresees no reversal in the immediate future in the shrinking number of farms, predicting that the farm population (now 10 per cent) in the U. S. could well drop to 5 per cent by 1975. The veteran farm official sees no letup in the agricultural revolution. "These changes, now oper- ating, will crucially test the managerial ability of farmers and the statesmanship of leaders," Briggs said. He described the successful farmer of the future as being a "hard, careful, and sharp buyer, and a good, intelligent, and experienced seller. His purchases will move from factory to farm to cut unnecessary costs, and many of his sales will move directly to the processor, to eliminate duplication," Briggs said. Among other things Briggs sees in the near future for agriculture are: 1. More people living in rural areas, but most will be non-farmers. 2. Average farm size of 400 to 600 acres in the Corn Belt within 10 years, with one million farms producing 90 per cent of the products. 3. Continued rise in capital investment per farm, most of it supplied by the family, landlords and credit agencies. 4. Agriculture will assume more characteristics of other businesses, becoming less of a way of life. 5. Increase in specialization on farms. 6. Increase in contracts between farmers and cooperatives, to produce supplies and market products to specification.
