The high school has had inadequate fire protection, according to board members. Also at the Tuesday night meeting, Price announced that Roxana paid $138.05 interest on anticipation warrants equalling • $30,000 while waiting for tax money to be turned over by the Madison County treasurer's office. County Treasurer George Musso has paid the village over $80,000 in taxes enabling the village to pay off the anticipation warrants. HARDIN — A $500 per year salary hike for the chief deputy sheriff was okayed Tuesday by the county commissioners but a request for a $300 per year raise for the female clerk in the sheriff's department was denied. The original request was for a $1,000 per year raise for the deputy, but this was halved with Commissioner Stelbrink dissenting. This brings the deputy sheriff's salary to $7,000 per year with the clerk, who also acts as bailiff and matron, kept at the same $4,800 per year salary as other clerical help. However, the commissioners did okay a $50 per month raise from $150 to $200 as the county's share of the salary for the secretary in the state's attorney's office, with the state's attorney to pay a like amount to bring her pay to the $4.8M level. With only two attorneys in the county, Sale's Attorney Ralph Moses shares the cost of the county office and conducts his private law practice out of the county office. Also raised was the pay for part-time clerical help from $1.80 to $1.95 per hour. This principally affects the part- time clerk in the office of the county highway superintendent. In other business the commissioners okayed a resolution which would require that each taxing body in the county pay its proportionate share of the estimated $29,000 cost of extending and collecting taxes in the county. The specified share of the cost is to be deducted from the taxes collected for the respective taxing bodies. A zoning change from S-l, floodplain and A-l agriculture to R-5 residential at Bim's Place was okayed as recommended by the zoning board of appeals. A 2 p.m. meeting scheduled with Herman Bimlager and other property owners at and near Bim's Place to discuss proposed road construction with the property owners sharing the cost failed to materialize when neither Bimslager or the other property owners failed to show up. Alton Elks Lodge 746 has invited all 135 members to a showdown meeting at 8 p.m. Thursday to either dissolve .the club or reorganize it in an effort to get out of the red. In announcing the meeting, Karl W. Kaveler, past exalted ruler, listed current outstanding debts of $6,500 in addition to needed roof repairs of $1,000 or more at the lodge at 125 E: Broadway. Kaveler said that the club room and restaurant facilities had lost an average of $150 per week. Both the restaurant and lodge itself have been closed for several weeks "due to lack of participation in the everyday affairs of the Lodge by a large majority of the present members," Kaveler said. Kaveler said that Thursday's meeting was called as a result of an Aug. 13 meeting of past exlated rulers who determined the club had two options — dissolution or reactivation. chases of those items under milk price-support operations, says the Agriculture Department. For all of calendar 1972, says the department, dairy purchases or "removals" from the open market were below last year's rate as of Aug. 1 and probably will continue lower the remainder of the year. Further, the department said Tuesday in a summary report on the dairy situation and outlook, both milk production and dairy cash receipts are expected to be up this year. Officials said price-support removals of dairy products are tentatively estimated at around 6.0 billion pounds of milk equivalent for all of .1972. compared with 7.3 billion last year and 5.8 billion in 1970. Under the price-support program, the department agrees to buy excess manufactured products at rates designed to guarantee Walker rally set tonight A kickoff rally for Madison County volunteers in the campaign of Dan Walker.

That support for the marketing year, which began on April 1, is $4.93 per hundredweight of milk, unchanged from a year earlier. "While sale cheese prices continued to rise in July and August," the report said, "and even butter prices have been above the support purchase price since late July, wholesale prices of most other dairy products have held steady this year." Milk products are expected to be up about 1.5 per cent this year to around 120.5 billion pounds from 118.6 billion in 1971. Prices at the farm level averaged $5.90 per hundredweight through August this year, up more than 2 per cent. Over all, the report said, cash receipts from milk are expected to be a record $7.1 billion, compared w;'h the previous high of $6.8 billion last year, officials sa. f d. "Although dairy ration costs are likely to be higher this fall and winter, increase'! milk prices should keep milk- feed ratios favorable to increased grain feeding of dairy cows," the report said. "However, in many dairy areas, hay harvested this summer was of poor quality, which may have a depressing effect on milk output this winter," it. said. WASHINGTON (AP) — Poultry slaughter in federally inspected plants dropped seasonally by 6 per cent From June to July but still was 3 per cent ahead of the month last year, says the Agriculture Department. Nearly 1.19 billion pounds, liveweight, of chickens, turkeys and ducks were reported for July, the department said.
