Dangerous holiday Week-end coming The third anniversary of Iowa's worst holiday traffic death toll falls this Labor Day weekend and State Safety Commissioner Carl Pesch called it a "terrible reminder of what can happen on our highways If drivers let down.",.;. During the Labor Day weekend of 1959 a total of 21 persons lost their lives on the state's streets and highways, a toll that has never been surpassed during a holiday period of similar length. "The warning this record carries for the coming Labor Day weekend is obvious," Pesch commented. "We have more traffic and travel now than in 1959. We could suffer an equal tragedy unless drivers use extreme caution," he said. During the past five Labor Day weekends, 52 persons have been killed in Iowa traffic accidents, making the holiday one of the most consistently dangerous of the year. Pesch urged drivers to begin preparing now for safe travel during the Labor Day weekend. "One of the most important preparations that can be made," he said, "is to plan weekend trips for an early arrival, both at the destination and on the return home." Such planning will help motorists avoid fatigue and long stretches of nighttime driving when traffic hazards increase sharply, Pesch said The Heart Of Northeast Iowa's Scenic Wonderland Thursday, August 23, 1962, Fayette, Iowa Experimental math. Labs scheduled Four Pages This Issue Rules, insurance discussed At football meeting here About 150 parents and athletes attended the football meeting at the high school Monday night, prior to the opt-ning of footbnll practice this Friday. Coach Robe! t McCormack was in charge of the meeting. Among other things, Coach McCormack discussed training rules and insurance on the athletes. He stated that the insurance policy that has been accepted by the srlux)! board will cost $21 for the school your, plus $.3 to cover the student for the remainder of the school year. The board, however, has decided to pay $6 per person on the football policy and the extra $3, leaving $15 for each football player to pay.

Two schools, Carlisle Consolidated, with an approximate high school enrollment of 200 pupils, and Marion Independent, with an approximate high school enrollment of 500 pupils, have been selected as pilot schools to evaluate the effectiveness of mathematics laboratories. The Marion Independent school district pilot study will consist of a two-room mathematics laboratory, while the Carlisle Consolidated school district pilot study will consist of a one-room mathematics laboratory. The NDEA allows for reimbursement consideration for the purchase of equipment and materials and for minor remodeling, if deemed necessary to adequately utilize the equipment and materials. The project will include an evaluation of such equipment as mathematics desks, teachers desks, enrichment books, models, magnetic chalkboards, teaching machines, projectors (8mm, 16mm, 35 mm slides, strip film and overhead), cameras (8mm, 35mm), and tape recorders. Special techniques for teaching general mathematics on an individual basis, using a variety of teaching aids in a laboratory situation, will also be evaluated. . The teachers plan to use some of the materials developed by the School Mathematics Study Group, University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics, University of Maryland Mathematics Project, and various programmed mathematics units. A library of 200 reference books will be available for the mathematics laboratories.

There will be entertainment, special recognition of honors earned and refreshments served by members of.the Circle and library board The referendum of wool and lamb producers coming up in September is to determined their approval of a new agreement to continue financing an advertising and market-development program for wool and lambs, Ellis Thompson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, said today. He emphasized that the outcome of the referendum will not affect continuation of the wool incentive ments to finance the market-development program have amounted to 1 cent per pound for shorn wool and 5 cents per hundredweight for lambs. Under the new agreement, the deductions cannot exceed these rates. Ballots will be mailed between Sept. 4 and 7 to producers in the county, and all ballots should be received by Sept. 10. The voting will take place over the two-week period starting Sept. 10, and all payment program; which was ex- _ ballots must be received by the Service* held Funeral services for Pr.

Producers eligible to vote in the referendum are all those who have owned sheep or lambs, six months of age or older, for any one period of at least 30 days since Jan. T,';J962. Each producer will report the" number of sheep and lambs on his ballot. Approval by producers having at least two- thirds of the volume of production represented by votes in the referendum will be required if the agreement is to be extended, No youth center Until school opens The Fayette Youth Center will not hold any more dances until after school starts. At that time it will be decided whether to continue, as the attendance of students and parents at the youth council meetings has not been very good. A new supervisor will need to be hired, due to the resignation of Miss Patti Wells. There has been a good attendance at the Friday night dances, but the council members feel the students must participate more in the work of the club, also. Sn«k« The snake found recently in the yard of the Phillip Brown home in Bloomfield had two heads. The tiny reptile, some 6 inches long, appeared to be a garter snake. The two heads form a "V" at the end of -the snake's "neck". The third meeting on the proposed golf course for Fayette will be held this Thursday night at the Coffee Nook in Fayette, beginning at 8 p. m. All interested persons are invited to attend. At the meeting last Thursday night Lee Stammeyer of St. Lucas told the group how the golf course at Calmar and Fort Atkinson was built, and encouraged the local golfers to work on the course for Fayette. 'A special committee has been busy this week locating persons who are interested in helping ti) get the local course started, and will report on their activities at the next meeting. Plans are to construct an 18-hole course near Fayette, which would serve the entire area surrounding Fayette. The course would be a- vailablc for the use of college and high school instruction, also. Anyone who is at all interested in having a golf course built in the Fayette area is invited to attend the meetings. Those who do not play golf may find it a recreation to their liking if a course- is nearby. Optimistic view On future business Executives of Iowa manufacturing plants generally are optimistic about the level of business activity during the next 1G months, a report by the Iowa Manufacturers Association showed today. In the survey of members of the I. M. A., 71 per cent said they expected business to increase during the second half of this year and 15 per cent indicated a decline was in prospect. Fourteen per cent expected business activity to continue at the level of the first six months which an earlier I. M. A. survey showed was generally higher than the same period last year. Looking ahead to 19G3, the I. M. A. survey showed 71 per cent expect an increase in business, 20 per cent foresee a drop and nine per cent fexpect no change. One manufacturer ( sporting goods ), commenting on talk of a recession, said "This business usually is hit by recession six months ahead of the event, and it hasn't been felt by us yet. We are always the first out of a recession, too." Another, uncertin of what will happen next year, said 1983 will depend on future pronouncements from the capital. On the minus side, fear of government involvement in major business was given by a manufacturer as the reason for expecting decreasing business during the next 16 months. In general, manufacturers predicting an increase in business through 1963, felt the upsurge would be largely the result of stepped-up sales efforts. Banquet speaker Fred Hatch of the Hatch Livestock Commission Company, Chicago, 111., will be the main speaker at the Fayette County Beef ro ducers' annual banquet to be at the Community hall Thursday, Sept. 6. There will be other members of the beef trade present also. Announcement will be made of the winners in the junior feeding program along with presentation of checks and awards. There will be an award also for the person showing the grand champion steers »t the Fayette county fair.

Harrison, Maynard. training rules that will be in effect wh«-n football practice begins Friday, and stated that the "training rules will be carried out." Specific rules listed we're: Smoking will not be allowed; drinking of alcoholic beverages will hot be allowed; athletes must be in their respective homes by 10 p. m. on Sundays through Thursdays and 12 p. m. on Firdays and Saturdays unless s|x>cinl permission is given by the couch. Punishment will be divided by the coaches. Also, any trouble that a boy gets into after school hours will be subject to review by the coaches, and they in turn will decide how it will fffwl the boy's participation in snorts. Hi> MJiU'd that the purpose of the rules is to help build a winning attitudi', better team spirit, better citl/ens, help the boys develop physically and to develop mental discipline. He also pointed out that thtf parents can help enforce the training rules by knowing where their sons are between the end of practice periods and the cerfew. Also by seeing that their sons follow the training rules. Coach McCormack stated that that six game suits, six new pairs of pants, several blocking dummies, vests and footballs have been purchased for the coining season. The rest of the equipment, he said, was in fairly good condition. A display of the football equipment used was also laid out for the students and parents to see, along with the price of each article. Prices listed for the equipment used,: was as follows; Rib pad $7.45; game football $17.45; hip pads $9; game pants $11.50; knee pads $3; thigh pads $5; face bar $2.45; "JIB; gam^ihTrr^SOrmounrp^^ $4.50. Also, about $150 worth of tape is used during each football season. The Cardinals will open their llKi2 football season on Friday night, Sept. 14, at Dyersville. Eastern Iowa farm income Ranks high, survey shows Radl«h Pete Swank of Newton has grown a giant radish. The king-sized vegetable measure^' 20 inches long and eight and three eighths inches at the largest circumference. The radish weighed three and one fourth pounds and was solid all the way through. Lightning A bolt of lightning killed 15 hogs on the Bill Horr farm near Stanwood recently. Horr and his son, Larry, were standing near the truck intending to load the hogs for market when a sudden shower came up. The men were standing about 50 feet from the truck when the lightning struck. The force of the bolt knocked Larry .down. Neither was injured. Eastern Iowa farmers continous- ly have a higher income per farm and per acre than farmers in other parts of the state, a recently completed State University of Iowa study reveals. The study of the composition and distribution of Iowa farm income by counties during the decade 194857 was made by Mrs. Ethel Viitter, research associate at the SUI Bureau of Business and Economic Research. During the decade, Fayette county farmers had an annual net income per acre of $28.11, which ranked the county 44th among the state's 99 counties. The local county had an annual net income per farm of $4,424 ranking it 70th among Iowa counties in per farm income. The S. U. I. study also shows the concentration of high gross aggregate form incomes in the counties of eastern and western Iowa, and of Iowa aggregate gross farm incomes in the counties of southern Iowa. Mrs. Vatter adds that when these incomes are netted, eastern Iowa retains most high income counties, and the southern pasture and northeastern dairy areas contain many medium-high income counties. In addition there is a noticeable shift of counties with low net per acre returns to western Iowa, and of counties with low net per farm returns to north central Iowa. Mrs. Vatter also points out in a report of the research project that the trend in net farm incomes in Iowa was downward during the entire decade studied. The S. U. I. research prpject creates a substantial new body of primary farm income data for Iowa counties, and includes figures on cash receipts from farm marketings by commodity, total gross farm Incomes, fixed and current operating expenses, realized net farm incomes, net changes in farm inventories, and total net farm income. Mrs. Vatter points out that variations in agricultural data from county to county hold important implications for three groups. First of all, they are important to the farmers themselves. They are also of crucial importance to planning by businessmen who serve the farm sector, she soys. These businessmen find their firms affected as incomes, input purchases and the number of farms vary. Also, she continues, these variations will similarly be important to u wide variety of "community enterprises" such as schools, churches, hospitals, libraries and county governmental units, all of which have planning needs similar to those of private business enterprises. Mrs. Vatter conducted the study of Iowa farm income in partial fulfillment of requirements for a Ph. D. degree in economics at S. U. I. She has accepted an appointment as assistant professor of economics in the College of Home Economics, Cornell university. In its final stages, the research project was supported by a grant of $1,244 from the Economic Research Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture. An additional grant of $3,850 has been made at the University to continue S. U, I. research in this area, including making county farm income estimates for the year 1959, and county non- farm income estimates for the years 1959, 1954 and 1949. Iowa is one of three states being ^studied by the U. S. D. A. -the other two are Arkansas and Missouri-with Iowa being used to represent the high income farm states. Serving with battalion Marine Private Leroy J. Necker, son of A. Necker of Route 2, Hawkeye, is serving with % Second Battalion, Third Marine Regiment of the Third Marine Division, currently afloat as the battalion landing team of the Seventh Fleet in the Western Pacific. The Second Battalion- relieved the First Battalion of duty August 10, and will serve aboard Seventh Fleet ships for approximately 10 weeks, during which time they will make several practice amphibious assaults. ,. Afloat to serve as our nation's "force-in-readineas," the marines are, .scheduled, to visit Japan, Hong Kong and the Philippines between operational training assignments.
