Alvin Fall, Sr., is shown at the foot of a htrge tree, which is located on his farm % of a mile north of the pond on Highway U, Just east of the Port of Entry. The tree has a cireunfference of 28 feet. The height can be estimated by noticing the relationship between Mr. Fall, who is 6 ft. and the top of the tree. e Mrs. Marshall Bishop Word was received here of the pasing of Mrs. Ewily John- ston, 81, of Vailejo, Calif.

Arden Dierdorff A flood of new bills and ~earings on major proposals highlighted activities here in Lhe legislative halls this past week. Over 150 bills were they|r intereStcovered ,w, kinds of sub- ~, our area as Jects and doubtless only a few will pass beth branches before the legislature adjourns about April 1. With the deadline for intro- duction of individual bills out of the way, we should be able to get down to the business of acting on those we have to look at and we certainly need to do just that if we are to complete action on many of the major proposals. Committee rooms are pack- ed from early in the morning to late afternoon each day for hearings on such major isues as turnpikes, assessment pro- cedures, llquor-by-the-drink in hotels and restaurants, chan- ges in the school foundatior, finance program, fair housing, pay raises, reduction in in: come tax, reduction in with: holding tax rates, interest or state inactive funds, home- stead exemption, and many other bills. Certainly no legis- lator can say he hasn't been able to hear beth sides of the issues involved. Only time will tell what will eventually be en- acted into law. What to do about the state's highway needs has generated a lot of interest. Whether re- venue bonds should be used to finance new toll roads or whe- ther to increasq gasoline taxes to raise more money for free highways are chief topics of discussions. Last Monday, a bill to create a new Kansas highway authority to issue bonds for super highways was Harkins, Concord. Ruth Young of Vallej0, and Zella Oranskog.

This Senate hoppers Tuesday as bill is Governor Docking's ap- the deadline for introduction proach to the construction of of individual bills for consid- super highways.

This brought to nearly his recommended construction $00 the number introduced in of a turnpike that would link the two branches since the legislature convened in Janu- iary.

Just what package of new highway construction will eventually pass is anybody's guess. Many more hearings are scheduled. I cannot believe that this legislature will pass any legislation creating a new state highway authority con trolled by the Governor with ~oorWer to sell revenue bonds highway construction. , Discontent with the valuation Of' property throughout Kan- sas was very evident at thc hearing last Monday before the House Assessment and Taxa- tion committee. Changes in the present law doubtless will be made so that a more uni- form' schedule can prevail throughout the state. The issue of the sale of liq- uor-by-the-drink in hotels and restaurants appears to be dead before it gets off the ground. Just what changes in the school foundation finance act will be made remains in doubt. After a hearing Thurs- day, it was announced that the Senate Education Commit- tee would start on a new bill.

Property at blddePs agreed upon to date is that expenditures for special edu- cation will be taken out of the ;budget limitations. Action on the bill to boost legislators' pay allowances was completed today (Friday) when the House passed Senate Bill 86. The bill would increase the daily expense allowance from $15 to $25 a day: in- creases pay for months not in session from $50 to $100 per month, and provides for pay- ment of mileage for onetrip home per week while the legis. lature is in session. There was little or no comment on the bill when it came before ,the House Thursday, The matter was resolved in party caucus- es held earlier in the week when a majority of both par- ties voted to /ess the bill. The final vote was 79 yes, 41 no. I opposed the bill in the caucus and I voted "NO" on the final roll call. Again it was the legislators from the urban a~eas that favored the pay raise. The measure now goes back to the Senate for concur- rence of a minor amendment and then goes to the Governor for his signature. I believe it |s unlikely he will veto it. The Senate on , Thursday passed out the bills reducing the state income tax from 2~ to 2 per cent on the first $2,000 of taxable income and reduces the rate of withhold- ing on state income tax from 15 to 10 per cent of federal withholding. Both will, in my opinion, pass the House with- out any trouble. What will be done on grant- Ing a homestead exemption to persons over the age of eS re- mains in doubt. Thereis in- when bid off.

The ice cream ~oduction in- crease results from an expan- sion of the distribution area for the company-made Best- yet Ice Cream products. Be- ginning in mid-March, Bestyet ice cream and sherbets will be distributed through retail food stores served by Scrivner-Boo- gaart in Oklahoma. The com- pany serves 122 contract and affiliated Redbud stores in Ok- lahoma and southern Kansas. Heretofore, BestYet ice cream products were distribut- ed only to the Boo~aart's and Bestyet stores in Kansas and Nebraska served by the corn- pany's Concordia, Kan. subsid- iary, Boogaart Supply. Construction began this month at Smith Center on a 65 x 60-foot modular steel freezer designed to increase the company's frozen foods storage capacity at Smith Cen- ter, to allow greater variety i in stocking. The freezer will store frozen goods at -10 de- grees F., but is capable of -20 degrees F. temperatures for ice cream storage. The $90,000 construction con. tract includes some rer~odel-i ing and installation of aadedI materials handling equipmen.*~ in the present Smith Center i warehouse. Work is by a local Smith Center contractor. Manhattan -- With a twinkle in his eye, a 94-year-old Man- hattan resident said he built the first grandstand for foot- ball fans at Kansas State Uni- versity "out of the goodness of my heart." It was more than 60 years ago when Emil C. Pfuetze started the "first stadium" project in the early 1900's. Today, K-State is going jzWzt,L Thursday, Page 6 D0ug Page, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jam is shown above with the deer he shot thls with" a bow and arrow, ahead with plans to build a Pfuetze said ' new $1.6 million stadium cials" had the northwest of the campus that moved from its Would seat 34,000 fans with ex- cation to the pansion up to 55,000 seats. It was a warm Sunday af- ternoon in early fall when Pfuetze, who owned a lumber yard in Manhattan, started on the grandstand. In those days, football was played on a site which is now Bluemont Grade School, locat- ed a few blocks east of cam- pus. Reason for building the grandstand, Pfuetze said, was that "I got tired of going to the games and standing there looking over the shoulders of the spectators." The grandstand, erected on the south side of the school lot, faced north. It was 16- feet wide and about 80-feet long. It could seat approxi- mately 300 persons, he said. Pfuetze said he had a "stack of stuff that wouldn't move" at his lumber com- pany. So, he decided to put it to good use. and build the grandstand. Pfuetze, who was graduated from K-State in 1890, rustled up some 1 by 10's and some number-two yellow pines. He said he and three carpenters finished the stand in about a week. field south of the morial Stadium used until in 1924. When asked hoW J .~y he received stand, Pfuetze "I didn't get didn't cost and I got a lot of of doing so."
