If you are one of those planning to install or convert to G a s heat, we most strongly advise that this work be done during the months of July and August. By so doing, you will get a better installation, and in most cases at more economical cost to you. These next two months are a "slack season" in the heating business, and your heating and plumbing contractor would welcome the the opportunity to do this work now, so that your Gas heat installation will be completely ready for the first days of cold weather. We urgently advise you to consider this now ... as we and all heating men, we believe, wish above all to avoid a "rush" such as was necessary last fall. Here at your Gas company offices, we can give you full details, and also explain such items as finance plans which are available to all of our customers. In brief, it's better and cheaper to get your Gas heat installation during July and August, and avoid the rush! Sincerely yours, North Central Public Service Co.

Rabbit Count Begins July 15 Iowa conservation officers will soon begin their annual July rabbit survey in an effort to determine the size of Iowa's 1955 rabbit crop and predict the outlook Cor this fall's rabbit hunting season, according to Frank Tellier, Burt, Kossuth conseivation officer. All officers have been instructed by the commission's biology section to diive regular country routes from July 15-28 from sunrise to about G a.m. Records of all rabbits seen, their size, condition and approximate age, will be submitted to commission biologists for analysis. In tiiis way, Iowa's wildlife scientists gain some idea of the breeding success of rabbits, the number of old labbits that made it through the winter, and the gen.eial condition of all the animals.
