To this union were born three daughters. During his married life he lived in and around Fayette, his home being at Randalia at the time of death. He'attended the Wesleyan Methodist church in Fayette.

Wheat quota penalty Set at $159 per bushel The marketing quota penalty rate on 1962-crop "excess" wheat production has been set at $1.59 per bushel, Ellis W. Thompson, chairman, Agricultural Sabilization and Conservation County committee, has announced. This compares with a 1961-crop wheat, penalty rate of $1.08 per bushel, Under the 1962 wheat quota program, the marketing quota penalty on excess wheat ia required by law to be set at 65 per cent of parity as of May 1 of the crop year. In previous years, the penalty rate was 45 per cent of parity, this rate - $1.59 per bushel for 1962 - times a farm's wheat excess - expressed in bushels - determines the actual amount of penalty. For 1962, the chairman explained, the law also directs that the amount of wheat subject to penalty shall be figured at twice the farm's normal yield on all the excess acres unless the 1982 actual yield is proved to be less and the producer files a request for an adjustment Mr. Thompson stressed the fact that some farms with 15 acres or less of wheat may be subject to quota on their wheat production this year as a result of changes made in the law in 1962. Before this, producers on farms harvesting less than 15 acres of wheat were not subject to penalties. Now, however, quotas apply to all farms on which the 1962 wheat acreage exceeds the smaller of ( a ) 13.5 acres or ( b ) the highest acreage in any of the 3 year 1959, 1960, or 1961. Producers who have excess wheat acreage still have time to reduce their acreages in order to avoid a marketing quota penalty. The Fayette county deadline for adjusting wheat acreage in accordance with program regulations is June 1, 1962. When the penalty is satisfied, the remaining wheat may be marketed free of penalty. If the penalty is not satisfied, any wheat marketed has an automatic lien against it.

Alvin Kelly, industrial arts instructor, will have charge of the Industrial assessed value Five per cent of state total The total assessed value of Iowa industrial real estate, machinery and personal property reached five per cent of the state total last year, the Iowa Manufacturers Association reported today. Reports from the state tax commission showed industrial and manufacturing plants, "machinery and personal property had a total assessed value in 1961 of $265,665,103. That amounted to five per cent of the assessed value of all real, personal and public utility property in Iowa which amounted -to $5,265,739,643. The IMA said industrial and manufacturing plant real estate and machinery amounted to $248,692,128 in 1960 and accounted for 4.8 per cent of the state total. The percentage was 4.6 in 1959 and 4.5 in 1958. The increase in investment by Iowa industry was reflected in increased production, the IMA report said. In 1961, production increased by $150 million over 1960 and reached an estimated $5.4 billion. "This continued expansion of industry is healthy for the Iowa economy," said Harry D. Linn, executive vice president of the IMA.

The estimated 1,000 students by 1966 at U.I.U., he said, would be a leveling off point, and would be controlled by limiting the number of entering freshmen. The added enrollment will also bring about the need for another dormitory. He stated "the present thinking is that this will be one of the new so-called 'H' type buildings, wherein young women will be housed in one wing, young men in another wing, and the two wings joined together with food service and recreational parlors. Dr. Garbee pointed out that presently 386 students, or 52.1 per cent • of the student body is housed in ' college owned, buildings. In the fall of 1961 there were 219 men in the Maltbie-McCosh hall and 151 women in the Zinita B. Graf hall. The capacity for the women's dormitory is actually 104. Off campus there are 46 Fayette homes which are college approved, housing 142 single men. There is only one college approved home for women which houses three girls. "Today, if we were to house two students to a room in both dormitories and include the single students living off-campus in Fayette, we would need housing for 215 men and 50 women," Dr. Garbee said. He also pointed out that in 1952 the teaching faculty consisted of 18 persons, and that this year there are 45 on the faculty, plus several part time teachers. He estimated that in the next 10 years the faculty will increase by as many as - ' -.- ~" - >« -' -•••»•»"Dr. Garbee also stated that he will recommend to the trustees at the annual meeting in October an across-the-board increase in the amount of $1,000 per full time faculty and staff member, and a proportionate increase for the custodial staff. In order to keep good faculty members," he said, "it will be necessary to establish a salary range from a beginning salary of $6,000 per year to $15,iOO per year for the classroom teachers. In discussing the constantly changing curriculum, Dr. Garbee stated that 20 electronic language units will be installed temporarily in the new Baker - Hebron Science building. He said that when a new fine arts building is established or one of the present buildings remodeled the equipment will probably be installed permanently. Beginning this fall, Upper Iowa will take the first step toward eventually requiring competence in at least one language other than English for graduation. Dr. Garbee also pointed out that geology must be added to the curriculum in the near future. In regard to the students attending Upper Iowa, he said that in 1951, 92 per cent of the students were from Iowa. In 1961, 67.6 per cent were from Iowa and 32.4 per cent from outside the state. It is conceivable that in the next 10 years the ratio might be as much as 50 - 50. He pointed out that most of the students from outside the state are full paying students, which helps to equalize the operating costs. He told the group that the budget for the 1962-63 school year will be in excess of $1,000,000, in comparison with a $220,000 budget in 1952-53. For the past three years the university has operated within its budget, and at the present time within a balanced budget In speaking of improvements being planned, Dr. Garbee listed the following things: Baker - Hebron Science building now under construction; remodeling work on the chemistry building; Dorman Memorial gymnasium; complete second floor of Graf hall dormitory; addition to the library; new book store; Fine Arts building; small prayer chapel on campus; married student housing unit; new dormitory; catering food service; new tennis courts combined with off-street parking area; stadium and athletic field house; addition to Colgrove - Walker Memorial building for dramatics; rebuilding inside of Alexander hall; Alumni Social Science hall; off-campus parking; eight or 10 dwellings for faculty members. Toastmaster for the evening was Fred Breckner, vice president of the City National bank in Cedar Rapids and a 193S graduate of Upper Iowa. Dennis Lamport gave the response for the senior class. Dinner music was furnished by Dr. W. LtGrand. Maxwell,
