They began their program with some very creditable music by the Algona Silver Cornet Band, then commenced croquet balls to roll and the happy lads and lassies exercised their skills in arches and stakes. "Some of the party were busy making ice cream and others equally as much engaged in devouring it. Tables were prepared numerously with eatables which might be palatable to the delicate lips of a fairy. They dined and then all Jumped aboard the Challenger and went out on the water for the balance of the evening. The courteous Clear Lake band united with their brother musicians and climbed upon the skow and assisted with their music in making the occasion a pleasant one." In 1875 that trip to Clear Lake must have been quite an event I * * * A Russian teacher in class recited as follows: "April 11, 1961, Uri Gagarin orbited the world, Aug. 6, 1961, Major Titov made 17 trips around the world.

Greigg announced today that he has introduced legislation to provide income tax credit for college tuition and related educational expenses. The credit will apply either to the individual who is paying his own tuition, or to someone else, usually a parent, who is paying tuition for the student. The credit will be computed separately for each student, thus easing the tremendous burden now faced by parents with more than one child in college. Under Congressman Greigg's bill, the amount of credit will be: 75% of the first $200 of expenses; 50% of the next $300; and 20% of the next $1000. Expenses of higher education covered under the bill include: tuition and fees required for the enrollment or attendance of a student at a level above the twelfth grade at an institution of higher education, and fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for the courses of instruction. Expenses covered do not include amounts paid, directly or indirectly, for meals, lodging, or similar personal, living, or family expense. Congressman Greigg stated that while he strongly supports student scholarship and loan programs, he believes this proposal could particularly ease the burden 'of parents in the middle income group. The Congressman said he is confident the measure would also be particularly beneficial to the private colleges in northwest Iowa. Greigg noted that other bills which have been introduced along this line allow less credit to students paying tuitions in the range now in effect in these institutions.
