prop ..... By McDfll l oydr The vrovosal of the gan administration to limit the amount of loans and grants to $4,000 per year has led to loud outcries the poor will be denied access to a college education. Families with incomes of more than $32,500 per year, would also participate in the cost of sending students to college. It would appear that $4,000 per year should be sufficient for a education at most public colleges and universities. If it no one ever got hurt by doing a little outside work while for a degree. Admission to some private schools, with tutition getting up into the $15,000 range, would be difficult, but it always has been, for most students. There is nothing new about that, and the taxpayers Should not be forced to pay such costs; They are having trouble enough already. And there is an alternative. The Navy, the Air Force and the Army, have lucrative grants available for qualified applicants. Even the Army and Air National Guard has a program with benefits of up to $5,040 available. To earn the benefit, the student must join the National Guard, but those who are hard pressed to finance an education do have an alternative. An educational opportunity requiring a little old fashioned effort the part of the student, is probably worth more than one which Can be obtained more easily.

NORTON VALLEY HOPE ALKATHON The 18th annual Norton Valley Hope Alkathon will draw several hundred recov- ering alcoholics and drug ad- dicts to Norton for a day of fellowship. Almost 500 per- sons including families and friends attended last year's Alkathon. This year's pro- gram is scheduled for Satur- day, April 27, beginning at 2:00 p.m. The theme for the Alkathon is "Go For Itr'. According to program director Kenneth C. Gregoire, "The theme of 'Go For It' reflects the enthusiasm that recovering alcoholics and addicts express toward the attainment of sobriety and serenity." Gregoire went on to say, "Getting sober is one thing, but staying sober and straight takes something else. It takes an active interest in changing one's life for the better." The day's activities will in- clude musical entertainment, fascinating speakers and spe- cial guests and several sur- prises.

LAST CHANCE Musk Thistle, the most pro- lific noxious weed in Kansas can be effectively controlled by chemical treatment in the rosette stage. Most musk thistle plants bolt after May 1, therefore, the month of April is the last chance you have to successfully spray this weed. There are several chemicals approved by the Kansas State Board of Agriculture to con- trol musk thistle and each will kill almost 100% of the grow- ing weeds if applied at the recommended time and rate. None of these chemicals will do a satisfactory job if the plants are bolted or sending up their seed stalk. In the past several years, the month of April has been windy and rainy and only a few days have been favorable for spraying. Consequently, thistles were sprayed too late and many went to seed. If only 50/0 of the thistle crop goes to seed, one may expect the same infestation the fol- lowing year. Fall spraying has advantages in that it gives the landowner more time to treat and he usually has better weather conditions. It is the desire of every county director that anyone who plans to treat this spring get their chemical now and be prepared to spray on the first favorable day. ,esu April 2, 1985, the following were elected to the various postiions as shown: Burr Oak: Mayor, Mike Harris; Councilman: Marvin J.

Jim Peroutek County Executive Director 1~[84 Wool Payment Sheep producers will re- ceive about $90 million in federal incentive payments on wool and lambs they sold in 1984. The 1984 national average market price for shorn wool was 79.5 cents a pound, 85.5 cents less than the $1.65 per pound support price. Dividing the difference (85.5-cents) by the average market price (79.5 cents) results in a 1984 pay- ment rate of 107.5 percent, compared with a payment rate of 149.6 percent in 1983. They payment rate is the amount required to bring the average price received by all pro- ducers up to the support price. The wool program encour- ages the production of higher quality fibers because the more producers receive from sales, the more they receive in government incentive pay- ments. Producers' payments are determined by multiplying the payment rates (107.6 and 20.2 percent) times the net dollar return received by pro- ducers from wool. Producers will receive $3.42 per hundredweight in federal payments for unshorn lambs they sold or slaughtered in 1984. This payment is to com- pensate growers for wool on live lambs they marketed. The payment is based on the shorn wool payment rate, the aver- age weight of wool per hun- dredweight of lambs and the price of lamb's wool relative to the national average price for shorn wool. USDA Announces Changes In Dairy Price Support Program The national support price for milk will be reduced from $12.60 to $12.10 per hundred- weight on April 1. The current $.50 per hundredweight de- duction from the proceeds of all milk marketed for commer- cial use by producers will end on March 31. It is our hope that this adjustment will bring supply and demand into a better bal- ance. Producers will be re- lieved of the $.50 per hundred- weight deduction required by the Dairy and Tobacco Ad- justment Act of 1983. The $12.10 support price will remain in effect until September 30, 1985. The manufacturing allow- ances used to calculate the new purchase prices are un- changed. CCC-owned dairy products will continue to be offered for sale for unrestric- ted use at prices about 10 percent above the newly es- tablished purchase prices.
