Reglstcr-Moit, Galesbutfl, HI, Tuesday, Sepf, 17, 1963 Two Alternative Plans for Hospital Improvement Are Cited at Council Meeting MONMOUTH — A capa city crowd was on hand for Monday night's meeting of the City Council to hear the report of the Hospital Planning Agency. Kenneth Critser, chairman of the committee, pre- Probe Grudge Theory in Bomb Threat MONMOUTH—Fire Chief Dale Moore said this morning that investigation is continuing into the bomb threat at Western Stoneware Co. which occurred early Monday morning. Yesterday an unidentified man called Marshall Romine, superintendent of the pottery plant, and told him a bomb would go off in the plant sometime during the day. He added that if Romine did not believe him, to check the John Switzer and Wilber Romine homes for fire damage. Both men are plant foremen. Investigation by authorities revealed some slight damage at both places. It was surmised that either a blow torch or a fusee, a color flare used as a railroad signal, could have been used to cause the damage. In connection with this, fire officials are checking on the possi bility of arson at the plant. Due to all these recent events, author! ties believe that someone must ha a a grievance against the company. In a meeting at the plant yesterday afternoon, company em­ ployes were informed of the situation and told to report anything suspicious, Bernard Bolan, the firm's president, said today. Firemen were called Monday at 12:15 p.m. to the 600 block on South Main Street when a minor fire occurred caused by brakes locking on a Burlington farm machinery company truck. Later in the day, firemen were called to the Robert Farm home, 837 N. Main St., where grease in a broiler caught fire. No damage was reported by authorities in either case. sented a short resume of the council's action last Feb. 4, setting up the agency. Critser explained that upon organizing the committee it was immediately divided into two subcommittees with Lawrence Martin as chairman of the building committee and Jack Lemmerman heading the finance committee. The firm of Foley, Hackler, Thompson & Lee of Peoria was engaged to carry on the architectural work. Richard L. Johnson of the firm of A. T. Kearney and Co., hospital management consultants, was also hired for advice on the financing problem. John Hackler of the architect firm was present last night, to explain the program selected for the City of Monmouth. Two proposals together with cost estimates of each were presented. Hackler stated that their study had shown that Monmouth needed an 80-bed hospital together with a 68-bed long-term care unit. One proposal called for ac quiring all properties south of the present hospital and using the entire square block lying be tween North Third and Fifth streets and East Detroit and Euclid Avenues. The 80-bed hos pital would be an entirely new structure with the old hospita being remodeled to use as a C8 bed nursing home. Total cost of this project would be $2,900,800 with the community having to raise $1,217,000. An alternate proposal was to purchase 10 acres of land and build both a hospital and nursing home on the site. Total cost of this project was estimated to be $3,146,400 with local financing to furnish $1,383,489. Johnson spoke briefly following Hackler's presentation and gave details of financing methods available to the city. Both men answered questions from the mayor and councilmen after which Critser proposed tq, the council that the architect's report be accepted and that the agency be granted 90 days for further study of the project. The council acted favorably on his request after which Mayor Allan Walters thanked Critser for his efforts in spurring on the committee work.

Seen in Budget MONMOUTH—Chance of a slightly lower tax rate next year for Warren School district, No. 222, was seen as a result of the reduced costs of operation indicated in the district's budget Monday night. The district Board of Education adopted the budget after receiving a report on its provis-' ions, in regular meeting at Warren School. The -educational fund income was listed as $294,931, with the educational expenditure $292,175. The building fund income was $18,249 while the building fund expenditure was $18,000. After approval of the budget the tax levy was passed, with $257,000 levied for an educational fund $10,000 higher than last year. The building fund levy was $20,000, or $10,000 lower than last year, making the figure on the combined levies same as last year. The levy for the bond sink­ ing fund will be somewhat lower—a drop of $2,500 below last year's. Clinton Hagemann, superintendent, stated this indicates that the total tax rate for the district will be very slightly lower than previous years, assuming the assessed valuation remains the same.

Morris invited all farmers to attend the session, which will be devoted to the volunteer grain sales contract. Morris said the contract authorizes the sale of soybeans to be made not less than $2.75 per bushel. He observed that the NFO is driving for contracts with processors. Morris reported that NFO members have pledged more than 50 million bushels of soybeans in a 2-week span. By the end of harvest, NFO expects many more million bushels of soybeans will be signed in the volunteer contract. NFO leaders have asserted that commercial feedlots have put many farmers out of the cattle business, and this will continue "as long as we have cheap grain." Morris suggested that this is the time for all farmers to seriously consider holding for a price and put agriculture on a business basis. mm 7 .-jar * mm Ifl 1 1 41 CATTLE DRIVE involving 2,000 white-faced Hcrefords is in its third day on the plains of South Dakota, as pictured here.

ON THE TRAIL IN SOUTH DAKOTA (UPD—Seventeen trail hands started a herd of 2,000 white-faced steers across the Missouri River at the crack of dawn today in a cattle drive even the Old West seldom matched. "I reckon this is the longest cattle drive that anyone has ever made in South Dakota," said tanned, lean Roy Houck, 58, a former South Dakota lieutenant governor and one of the state's "blue blood" ranchers. As the sun peeked across the rolling hills in some of South Dakota's most storied Indian country, a chuckwagon rolled onto a new, concrete-and-steel highway bridge with a milk cow tied on behind. The herd followed. Houck, riding horseback just like his cowboys, pushed the herd across the Missouri on the'nearly mile-long bridge that carries U. S. 212 into South Dakota's rough, sprawling West River Country. Houck considered the crossing one of the most hazardous points in the 125-mile drive, now in its third full day. The bridge soars 175 eet above the "Big Muddy" of yore, now transformed and widened into a crystal clear lake by the mammoth, earthen Oahe Dam a few miles downstream. Once across the wide Missouri, the herd will move down the west bank of the reservoir. A few miles Always Available 18 Handpacked Flavors of ICE CREAM & SHERBETS For Your Eating Pleasure at yow Golden Cream Dairy Stores south of the highway bridge at Whitlock's Crossing, the drive will proceed through the Cheyenne Indian reservation. Houck planned to powwow with the chiefs and present them the traditional gifts of beef in exchange for permission to continue the drive through Indian territory. "The drive is going well," Houck said as he bedded the herd down Monday night. "The cattle seem to be getting plenty of feed and water and I haven't noticed any change in their weight." Some of the hands, doing a lot of riding for even a cowboy, complained a bit of "saddle sores," Houck, a long-active politician who seconded Sen. Barry M. Goldwater's nomination at the 1960 GOP presidential convention, said he was taking his cattle to market the old way for both economic and sentimental reasons. It's cheaper—and many ranchers say easier on the cattle—to drive them to the sales ring at Fort Pierre from the range country of north-central South Dakota than to take them by truck.
