Garbee, of Upper Iowa University, announced today the receipt of a gift of $10,000 from the Kellogg Foundation "(1) to improve the quality of the teacher preparation program by giving financial 'assistance for the acquisition of needed books for your library; and (2) to give encouragement for increased effectiveness of your library services generally." Dr. Garbee said that the Upper Iowa university Faculty Professional club would study all phases of the library for its 1962-63 faculty project. Dr. Charles B. Clark, Maltbie Professor of Government, is assistance to libraries can contribute to the quality of teacher education for several generations of students to come, for a strong and dynamic library is a keystone to a DBW prof«uaom>{ and professional curriculums, the stimulus of new teaching aids, and increased emphasis upon self-directed and self-motivated education.

Freeman's press announcement points out. Current law requires that a referendum of growers voting on the question of marketing quotas for a wheat crop must be held prior to July 25 in years when quotas are proclaimed - that is, in years when the available supply is more than 20 percent above the normal supply. The estimated supply for the 1962-63 marketing year is actually 86.5 percent above normal. If the allotments had been determined solely on the basis of the law's supply formula, the 1963 allotment would have been 10 million acres. The secretary said that if Congress enacts new legislation to apply to the 1963 wheat crop, additional time will undoubtedly be giyen for the Department to carry out a referendum and the announcement already made -- calling for a referendum on July 24 -• can be vacated. Meantime, Ellis w. Thompson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, explains that, based on now- current legislation and the Sec- retary's announcement, the following program provisions would be effective for the 1963 wheat crop. If at least two-thirds of the voters approve 1963-crop wheat marketing quotas in the July 24 referendum, producers who stay within their acreage allotments may market all the wheat they produce without penalty. Individual farm marketing quotas will be ,the normal production or the actual production from the farm acreage allotments, whichever is larger. There will be no limitations on the amount of wheat which may be grown by State, religious, or charitable institutions for use on the farm, for food, feed or seed. If marketing quotas are disapproved, there will be no restrictions wheat marketings. Acreage allotments will remain in effect as a condition of eligibility for price support at the 50-percent-of- parity rate required by Law if quotas are disapproved. Under quotas, the national average support price for wheat would be not less than $1.82 per bushel, reflecting 75 per cent of the estimated parity price for wheat as of the beginning of the 1963-64 marketing year. Chairman Thompson said that wheat producers will be informed of the acreage allotments for their farms inadvance of the July 24 wheat quota referendum. Clark, Assistant Professor of History and teacher of Russian, is chairman of the Faculty Workshop committee which is setting up the program. These grants to Iowa colleges are part of a series in a nationwide three-year program during which a total of $2,500,000 will be given by the Foundation to approximately 250 of the nation's liberal arts colleges. Institutions considered for the grants were those which have regional accreditation, well-organized teacher education programs, and real need for financial assistance to improve their libraries. The Foundation funds are to be used for the purchase of books only. As a basis for the grants, each participating college has drawn up a careful and long-range plan for improving its library, and since books serve different curriculums, it is anticipated the acquisition of new books will not only aid teacher education programs but will also heighten the effectiveness of the library services generally. Only those departments or divisions of the colleges which participate in teacher education will be directly aided, with the staff work of ordering and cataloging the additional books to be performed by the regular library staff over a three-year period. Each college has assured the Foundation that the institution will continue its library support at the present level or higher and will use the grant for book purchases that cannot be financed from its regular budget. The grants by the Foundation constitute another recognition of the importance of the small, private, four-year liberal arts college to American higher education. The role of these colleges in teacher preparation programs can be appreciated when it is noted that small, private colleges comprise more than one-half the institutions having teacher education programs and supply slightly more than .25 per cent of all the public elementary and high school teachers of the United States. Expanded enrollments and soaring costs point up needs for increased staffs, facilities, budgets, and services. Obviously, these needs are beyond the aid that can be .extended through the Foundation's limited resources, However it is believed that the president of Alpha Xi Delta fraternity at its 27th national convention held June 27 to July 2 at the Bedford Springs hotel, Bedford, Penn. This social fraternity has chapters at the State University, Iowa City; Coe college. Cedar Rapids; Parsons college, Fairfield; Wesleyan, Mount Pleasant; and Drake -» university, Des Moines. Mrs. Thompson, an alumnus of Coe College and a former Maynard resident, has had wide experience in serving the fraternity as a national officer and at the local level in Portland, Des Moines and Kansas City where the Thompsons have lived. She had two terms as national fourth vice-president and two as national second vice-president. She has the honor of being listed in the 1961 edition of "Who's Who in American Women". The Thompsons have three sons, Dick, LaVerne and Don and 10 grandchildren. Church group assists In tearing down barn MAYNARD — Men of the United Presbyterian church sponsored a barn razing at the Russell Friedly farm northeast of town Tuesday, July 3.

Recent floods should Improve the fishing Fishing should improve in the flooded areas of northwest Iowa, State Conservation Commission officials said today. The heavy rains flush out the lakes and tend to decrease algae growths for one thing. Another benefit is the fact that flowing inlets of the lakes cause fish to congregate there for food. Bullheading and white bass fishing should be especially good, nnd at night, walleyes will be coming in to feed. Water is flowing heavily through the East Okoboji inlet raceway from Spirit Lake. One of the best spots for bullhead fishing anywhere in the state is East Okoboji where the water flows from the raceway. Good river fishing will slack off where streams are high but will improve as the settle down. In the areas not affected *fay floods, cat- fishing continues to be good. Bluegills are biting in most of the artificial lakes; and bass, for the real bass fisherman, are running large. Crappies are good fishing in the southeast Iowa lakes. Large motors without Props to be permitted On state-owned lakes Vessels with large motors attached will be permitted on state-owned artificial lakes providing an auxiliary motor of six horse-power or less is used, State Conservation Commission officials said today. Propellers must !>e removed from the larger motors, however. Lakes of 100 acres and over permit the use of motors of six horsepower or less. The changes in the ruling now permits, for instance, a boat to carry a 25 horse-power motor with propeller removed and the boat to be operated with an auxili- iary 6 horsepower motor. To select princess The 1962 Fayette County Dairy Princess selection will be made on July 23. These plans were made at a meeting of the County Dairy Promotion committee acording to Edwin Decker, Westgale, chairman of the committee. Each of the processors of dairy products in the county have been notified and urged to sponsor girls in the contest. Girls from dairy farms, who are high school graduates, 18 years of age and under 23, and not married, may enter. BB shot injures eye MAYNARD — Leo Steffen, who was hit in the eye last Friday by a shot from a BB gun shooting at ants on a tree with other boys in a neighbor's yard and taken to an Iowa City hospital, returned home Monday, June 25. ' Xruys showed the shot did not penetrate the eye ball but lodged behind it. It was removed by irrigation. 1961 wool incentive Payment set at 44.5% Lions club picnic The Fayette Lions club will hold their annual family picnic Mon- Shorn wool payments for the 1961 marketing year will amount to 44.5 per cent of the dollar returns each producer received from the sale of shorn wool during the year, the Department of. Agriculture has announced. Ellis Thompson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County committee, explains that this is the percentage necessary to bring the average wool price of 42.9 cents per pound up to the previously announced incentive level of 62 cents per pound under the national wool program. Producers thus will receive an incentive payment of $44.50 for every $100 received from the sale of shorn wool during the wool marketing year ended March 31, 1962. The payment for the previous year was $47.60 per $100 of marketings. The payment rate on sales of lambs that have never been shorn to compensate for the wool on them will be 76 cents per hundredweight of live animals sold. This day, July 16, at 6 p. m. at Klock's rate is based on the shorn wool Island park. * Each member la to bring a covered dish and table service. The club will furnish weiners, buns, potato chips and pop. payment and is designed to discourage unusual shearing of lambs before marketing. This payment compares with 80 cents per hundredweight for the I960 marketing year. Because the average mohair price of 85.5 cents per pound received by producers was above the mohair support price of 73 cents per pound, no payments will be made on mohair during the 1961 marketing year. Chairman Ellis Thompson announced that the A. S. C. S. county office will begin making payments this week. Applications for payment had to be filed not later than April 30, 1962. The payments will be made on shorn wool and unshorn lambs •marketed from April 1, 1961 through March 31, 1962. The 1962 payments to producers in the county under the wool incentive program for the 1960 marketing year totaled $11,690.52. Of this amount, $9,719.58 was paid on shorn wool and $1,970.94 on unshorn lambs. For the current 1962 marketing year, including marketings from April 1, 1962 through March 31, 1963, the incentive level for shorn wool is 62 cents per pound, the same as for each of the preceding years of the program to date. Program regulations for the current marketing year also oontlnue the same as for previous years.
