Presenting the check to Lupton on behalf of the club, McClintock said: "Mr. Mudd's presentation on behalf of the YMCA had tre mendous impact and convinced us that this local youth organization is indeed worthy of our support. Besides, we allocated this contribution in the budget we drew up last February." Along more serious lines, Me Clintock added that the Exchange Club has for the past few years been supporting the YMCA fund drive. "We hope the YMCA reaches its goal of $30,000 this year" and want to do our part, both as a service club and as individuals, to assure the success of the 1963-64 fund drive," he said.

Book Covers Aid Fire Prevention Week Program MONMOUTH-One of the many items that the Monmouth Fire Department is using during Fire Prevention Week is "fire prevention" book covers. Firemen passed out 1600 of the book covers Monday to all of the grade schools and to junior high school of the public school system, and to Immaculate Conception School. Each child, from the first through the eighth grade, will have one fire prevention book cover. On the book covers are many fire prevention slogans, and one section explains about how the children should go about reporting a fire, such as the number to dial, giving the correct address, and describing what is on fire. On the back of each book cover, there is a section telling what to do in case of fire. Explanations are given as to what to do in case of a fire at school, and also at home. These book covers have been used throughout the United States, and they have received a very favorable response.

Paul Findley, R -JH. ...

Cites Need, Cotton Crop Rule By BERNARD BRENNER United Press International (Reg. U.S. Pat. Office) WASHINGTON (UPD - Rep. W.R. Poage, D-Tex., said today t h e Agriculture Departments latest cotton crop report should make it clear that new cotton legislation is badly needed. The department estimated Tuesday that the 1963 crop would reach 14,847,000 bales. The per- acre yield was estimated at a record-breaking 500 pounds, a one bale to the acre average for the entire cotton belt. With production at this level, the cotton surplus will go up for the third consecutive year from 11,200,000 bales last summer to a total of about 12,400,000 bales next Aug. 1. Poage said, "this report should show anybody that we simply can't go on as we're going." Farmer's co-operatives may be a $5 billion business by the end of this year. Agriculture Department economists estimate that at the beginning of 1963, the net worth of farm co-ops was $4.8 billion. That represented a 6 per cent increase over the net worth for one year earlier, about equal to the average increase for most recent years. If there is a similar increase this year, the net worth of farm co-ops at the end of the year will be over $5 billion. The department said the net worth of rural electric co-ops during 1962 rose by about 12 per cent, while production credit associations reported an average growth of 10 per cent. Co • ops which buy and market farm crops and supplies reported an average gain in their net worths of about 5 per cent last year.
