Sanner said the program, uncler the supervision of Jim Taylor, director of the Northwest Vo-Tech. School now being built, trains persons to operate heavy equipment and build roads. Four persons are presently participating in the program, he said. One man is from Springdale and likely will join the city's street department upon Mayor .

The men in the program have worked on Siloam Springs' roads up to about three weeks ago. As'part of their on-the-job training, they are now pavin'g Springdale's Pump Station Road. Within a week, according to Taylor, the men will begin work on Old Missouri .Road. But about two weeks is lett before Pump Station Road,-where they presently are working, will be completed.

Inflation Forces Closing Of Illinois Family's Dairy Farm NASHVILLE, III. (All) -Jke his fnlher, Cnsimer Kozus- :ek worked all his life to leave iomething for his sons: (he tnnlly dairy farm. But his sons von'l have it. Inflation milked t dry. 'The feed is too high and milk wasn't high enough," CG- ear-old Kozuszek says. "I sold ut because my hoys were supposed to take over but there vasn't enough money and I'm getting-too old." . Kozuszck sold his ,,herd of Jairy cows' at auction in Sep- :embor. -He still lives on the 'armland, but no-longer as a armor. His son, who would liive run -it, works in a factory.- His voice accented .by traces of his ancestral Poland, .Kozus- lick talks in plain terms; dollars and cents.- . "In 1950, '51 and '52, corn was; 85 cents a bushel and milk ivas more than $6 a hundredweight. Now corn Is $3.80 a jiiEhcl and'milk is-still onlya little over $G.", When Kozuszek sold his herd, milk for cheese and other commercial products brought only $6:30, though ' this month the price reached -$7.50. "Everything ' else is too :iigh," he says. "Two years ago baling wire was $9. This year $23. Seven years ago'a tractor cost.$9,000. Now the same tractor is $18,000."

But until recently, it was living, Clarence Kozuszek, 21, vtinted to take over. "Yes, I would, , if it would lave been profitable, he ·=""·:. 'We weren't coming-out ahead, you know. We were just ]i.i...i^ ~ r t h e hills a n d thats : il. Now Clarence earns $3.80 an lour on the night shift at a factory. , "Its a lot · easier, he says. There you work for what you get. On a dair ylarm you work all day long and all 'night and you'll' have nothing to show for it. You don't, know what's going lo happen from day to day. If yon can't make a living on the farm'you have to do. something else. . ' The trouble with farming, as Ih'c. Kozuszcks see it, is that farmers won't work together. "They are going to'have to organize like everybody else, like union labor. 'If they don't they are going , to'.go broke'," says Casimer. .
