Consider Idea Of High School For New Area Plans to operate one high school for the entire Twin Rivers Community school district of Bode, Livermore and Ottosen and grade schools at Livermore and Ottosen were discussed at an open meeting held Tuesday evening, March 27, in the Bode school. The meeting was called by the combined Bode, Livermore and Ottosen school boards and the newly elected Twin Rivers board. A large crowd attended and many participated in the discussion. Arlo McGowan of Livermore acted as moderator. The new Twin Rivers district, approved by an 81% majority , last December, includes the present Livermore, Bode and Otto- : sen districts and some adjacent areas. It has about 84 sections of land and a population of about • GOO school-age children. The new board, does not go into office until July 1 but present plans are to have one high school (grades 9, 10, 11, and 12) for the entire district at Bode. An enrollment of between 180 and 190 students is expected and it is planned to have a well-, rounded course of study and a number of extra-curricular activities. Livermore and Ottosen will have grade schools for children from kindergarten through the 8th grade and all students in the area will attend one or the other school, depending upon location. At present all three towns operate complete school systems through high school. According to Arlo McGowan, ternporary president of the new Twin Rivers board, one school administrator for the entire area will be hired, as will principals for each of the three schools. Further discussion of plans for the 1956-57 school year were considered Monday, April 2, when the new Twin Rivers board and the outgoing Bode, Livermore, and Ottosen boards met at Bode. Members of the Twin Rivers board are; Arlo McGowan of Livermore, Erling Olson of Bode, Lester Wehrspann of' Ottosen, Orren Olson of Bode, find L. E. Kay of Livermore. Treasurer is J. F. Hamm of Livermore. , The three-school merger is tha second in this general area to go into effect. The Cedar Valley district (Farnhamville, Rinard, and Somers) which has been in operation this year is planning to have one high school at Somers next year. Another three* school district in Northwest Iowa, Lanyon, Harcourt, and Burnsid,fi, is also being considered. The proposal for one new high school to serve the entire area is ,similar in principle to that proposed for the Sentral area in Kossuth county, which in-eludes Lone Rock, Seneca and Fenton.

Apr. 30 Deadline To File For Wool Payments Wool producers of Kossuth county were reminded this week by the county ASC office that they have until the last day of April to file their applications for incentive payments in the first year's " operation of the wool program. The deadline filing date of April 30 applies only to wool sold during the marketing year beginning last April 1 and ending Mar. 31, 1956, it was stated by Virgil L. Rohlf, manager of ^he county ASC. Applications for the incentive payments must be filed with the county-ASC office. So far, 417 applications have been filed with the Kossuth county office. Generally speaking, Iowa farmers have shown keen interest in the wool incentive program. As proof of this, Rohlf cited the latest national summary p| tha Department of Agriculture whicn showed that 78.4 percent of the estimated 1955 Iowa wool crop was covered by incentive payment applications at the end of January. Kossuth county wool growers were urged by manager Rohlf to be especially careful about providing the required sales record when submitting applications for incentive payments. The sales record for shorn wool must show name and address of producer, net weight of wool sold, and net proceeds to producer after normal deductions. Those who marketed lambs and yearlings for slaughter between last April 1 and March 31, 1956 must provide bill of sale with name and address of slaughterer; date of sale; name and address of seller; and number, description, and net live weight of animals sold. They also must certify that the animals were purchased for slaughter, and that they h»d or had not been shorn at the time of aaAe. Thirty-day ownership is required to be eligible for payment.
