Bancroft Home plans addition Bancroft — The officers of the Heritage Home in Bancroft announced this week that they would begin construction this fall of its first six unit Senior Citizens Apartment building to be built directly east of the present nursing home. Heritage Home has been operating at capacity level the past year, and has a waiting list for its facilities. Some of the applicants are able to care for themselves and prefer a separate unit, and this expansion will take care of the public demand for senior citizens housing, There will be four one bedroom apartments and two two bedroom apartments in this Unit All units will be facing the North Kossuth Golf Course. A separate corporation has been formed. This is a non-profit corporation, financing being done by the Farmers Home Administration, who have funds available for this purpose. A long term, low interest loan will be made through the FHA, approval of which has already been tentatively made. Thus, low rental housing will be available to senior citizens. Shares are available to the people of Bancroft at a cost of .$100 each. . 4-ALOONA (!•*•) ADVAMCI THUMDAY, OCT.

At the farm, they took the 1964 Erpelding car from the garage. He noticed the car was missing Saturday night but assumed his hired man had borrowed it, an occurance that was not uncommon. The two boys then drove to a point eight miles west and one mile south of Rembrandt, near Storm Lake, where the car went into a ditch. They got a nearby farmer out of bed early Sunday morning to pull it out and the farmer invited'them for breakfast. They apparently wanted to unload their troubles and told him the story and he notified the Storm Lake sheriff's office. Deputy sheriff John Galbraith of that office took them into custody and notified their parents at Lake Crystal, Minn. Local deputy Wood notified Erpelding .that" his car had beep found near Storm Lake and he was, of course, more than mildly surprised since he still thought the hired man had it. The pair drove to Storm Lake ;o recover the machine Sunday. Neither his nor the Titonka cas was damaged.

Over-dependence on the property tax to support mushrooming school bud. gets resulting from more students, more subjects to teach and reorganization has created a problem which touches all education levels. , Increased state aid is • must for beginning a solution, The aid must be steady, predictable and reflect rising costs and inflation. Thirdly, changea must be made in the method of time of distribution of the aid.
