2B, ii, - i~ ! i ...... JEWELL COUNTY RECORD, MAN 'ATO, KANSAS ~-- i [ i THU,RSDAY, JUNE 8, 1967 Polluted Water Rolls Down Neosho River Neosho Rapids .... Polluted water caused by feedlot drain- age again flowed down the picturesqu0 Cottonwood - Nee- she river system near here l this week turning a large sec- tion of the scenic watercourse into a blighted, foul-smelling eyesore. The Kansas Forestry. Fish and Game Commission es timates tha~ approximately 425,000 flsli, minnows included, were killed by slugs of wastes which washed into the stream west of Emporia folh)wing rain on the watershed earlier this month "Since' the rain was not heavy enough to cause a raise in the river, movement of the pollution has been slow and devastating," Roy Schoonover, Pratt, chief of the fisheries division, said. "It's too early to determine if additiorml dam age will result as tile wastes wash on downstream," he add ed. The fish-kill was especially costly to Kansas anglers as many of the dead fisl~ were heavy with eggs. The kill oe curred just prior to the spawn ing season for channel catfish. Water pollution caused by aniraal wastes in runoff from livestock feedlots is a serinus problem which has taken a heavy toll of flshlife in some Kansas streams, Scimonover stated. "Fortunately, however, there is a brighter side to this gloomy picture," he said. "This note ef optimism results froth the commendable efforts of the State Department of Health during the past several years in conducting a program for investigating effects of wastes and designing and test ing effective control facilities," Schoonover stated. "Action of the 1967 Legislature provides necessary authority to put these findings to use in con trolling feedlot runoff." "It takes time to make new legislation operative; however, the Health Department is pro eeeding as rapidly as possible. Contacts with some livestock feeding enterprises along the Cottonwood river have already been made to provide cooper arian and a~istance in deter minin~l the best approaches for alleviating this form of stream pollution."

Boating Fatality Rate Continues To Increase Pratt The Kansas Forest- ry, Fist) and Game Commis- sion today urged all boaters to make every attempt to curb the spiraling boating accident fatality rate on Kansas' wat- ers. "There are more people anti boats (Tn OHr waters and (Tn roads enroute to recreational areas than ever before," Fred Warders, assistant director. said. More than 60,000 boats are estimated owned by Kan- sas captains. These craft, com- bined with numerous out-of state heats, spell congestion for Sunflower lakes during the up coming holidays and summer months. In 1966 an increase in boat- ing accident fatalities was not- t,d while the number of re I)orted compared to l0 in 1966. Reported accidcnts, those in- volving injury to persons alxmrd or having property damage in excess of $160, dropped from 2:1 in 1965 to 21 last year. "The largest single cause of accidents in Kansas last year was collisinn witil another ves- sel," Warders said. Other ma jor factors were capsizing due to overloading and capsizing due to overpowering. Tile State Boating Act re- quires certain safety equip- ment to be on board at all times when the vessel is in operation. All safety provisions of the act should always be ohserved. Boaters are cautioned to make sure their registration is current and correct. Vessels powered by machinery of ten horsepower or more are re- quired to register with the boating division of the For- estry, Fish and Game Com- mission. The Commission is to be notified due to change of ownership or change of ad- dress. Warders advised all boaters to clmck state and local rules and regulations before putting a boat on water. The United States Coast Guard says,"The water, as the 'air, is not in itself inherently (or necessarily) dangerous; but it is unremittingly unfor- giving of carelessness or mis- use". Safety, coupled with good sense, will aid in reducing flmehss Fl ;tric Air Conditioning is a clean break with the past (modern electric air conditioning) Modern, flameless whole-house electric air condi- ttoniag systems actually clean the air as they cool your homes. Sl cially designed air filters screen out dust, smoke and even odors. House cleaning is much easier and less frequent since there's less dirt.

Certain weeds may be eaten by livestock but usual- ly weeds are undesirable. Many rank low in palatability and usually ar ignored by livestock. Some weeds cause off-flavor in dairy products. Other weeds are poisonous or injurioUS t0 livestock. Weedy pastures produce con- siderably less than their poten- tial in palatable forage. Such aastures can be made more ar0ductive by chemical weed control. Weeds have been shown to use from 4 to 11 times more water to mature than dq Jange grasses. When comr~Pt~tion from weeds is eliminated forage grasses take ad~ an(age (7t' soil moisture and Imake rapid growth. Many acres of Kansas' 21 million a('res ()1' native grass- lands have been over-grazed and many species of annual and perennial weeds have in- va(le(I the abused acres rend- ing many pastures unproduc- Use of 2,4 I) in a well plan- ned spraying program will re- duce weed population and al h)w (h,sirable grasses tO re- establish.

Bob Dole Administration Scheme "~o Tax Old-Age Benefits Is Opposed The I)epartment of the Treasury has proposed to the tfouse of Representatives that Social Security old age month- ly bencfits and Railroad Re tirement benefits be made sub- ject to Federal income tax. The Johnson Administration ihm to levy income taxes on Social Security benefits is a device to take from thousands of Americans who can least afford to pay. Moreover, the Administration proposes, there by, to levy a tax on that which the beneficiary has already paid taxes.

The same in- come would be taxed first when it was earned and second when it was paid in benefits. This is tantamount to giving with one hand while taking away with the other. House Resolution 495 Expresses Opposition On May 31, 19(;7, I intro- duced a Resolution to express the sense of the House (71' Re presentatives that Social Se curry and Railroad Retire ment benefits whould be ex erupt from Federal income taxes. The Resolution cmpha sizes that inflation, which in itself is a form of hidden taxa- ti(m, in)poses especially 17eavy burdens on persons living on fixed racemes for their basic necessities. A Penalty On Fixed Incomes The 17rice spiral of inflation produced largely hy tile ({seal poli('ies of the Adnrinistration has seriously reduced the pro- tee(ion intended by (De Social Security l)rogram. Millions (71' older Amcricans have watched their fixed llano;ions, savings, ;slmn]uitics, and So('ia] Se('tn'i ty benefits shrink in purchas ing l)ower. There is strong opposition to the Administration's tax pro posals to increase greatly the tax burden on a sizable pro- portion of the Nation's elderly citizens. To tax old-age bene fits would harshly penalize those who have phmned and saved over the years in anti- ({patton of retirement. Every American seeks to improve the world in which he lives so that his c, hildl-n may thrive and prosper fron~ the fruits of his efforts. Surely Americans today owe some- thing to the generation whieh has done the same for us- which helped build the society in which we thrive and pros- per. Who is more entitled to share the fruits of our increas- ed prosperity than our older citizens, who did so much to create it?
