"One has to like people, I think, to be an auctioneer," she added. "And a sense of humor helps, especially when you think so- meone has made a bid and they are only waving at a friend." There is a festive air about a country auction and the Valley View auction is a clealer's haven. The sale lasts from four to five hours. "I keep my throat cool by drinking lots of iced tea," the auctioneer said. Buyers are looking for furniture and children's toys bring tots of response. Many dealers are looking for coUectibles, including Red Wing jars and McCoy pot- tery. Now and then crates of ducks and geese show up for the sale. There is considerable expense in connec- tion with an auction, not the least of which is advertising. The sale is advertised in the University of Kansas Medical Center. The program invites parents, teachers and administrators to come to- gether when problems arise to find solutions in the best interest of the child. The exceptional child is one who may suffer from an emo- tional or physical handicap, such as cerebral palsy or a speech or hearing defect. Exceptional children range from the profoundly retarded to the very gifted. Some may already be receiving special education services. All have special education needs.

It is funded annually by a federal grant through the Kansas State Department of Education Special Education Adminis- tration and consists of a Hotline and a Surrogate Par- ent Program. As the coordinator, Miss Nerka provides information about the rights of parents and children in special educa- tion, is the mediator to re- solve home and school con- flicts and if necessary, helps parents in initiating a due process hearing or finding legal services. At Individual Education Program sessions, she assists teachers and par- ents in planning a child's special education program.

The toll-free Hotline num- ber is 1-800-332-6262. The goal of the surrogate parent program is to recruit and train interested persons to serve exceptional children who are wards of the state in making all decisions concern- ing their education. There are over 100 children in the state who need sur- rogate parents. Miss Nerka's job is tp notify area groups, check references, make recommendations, set up interviews and run the pro- gram. four newspapers and merchandise comes pouring in. "Sometimes we have to limit con- signments," Lynette said, "asking the sellers to hold the merchandise for a later date." Lynette does not call work at the auction moonlighting even though she has a fulltime job as a cashier at the Superior Jack and Jill Store. "I particularly like my job at the store as it keeps me in touch with the public. People shop pretty much the same, be it at a grocery store or at an auction," she claims. A talented musician, she plays the organ at church each Sunday and also is in de- mand for public concerts. Along with the work-filled days, Lynette still has time for dates and dances. But the chant, rapid and clear, rings out at the old Valley View School on auction Sundays -- and the crowds find the hunt for bargains exciting.

Waterfowl Endrin Testing Underway Pratt -- Numerous Kansas sportsmen are understand- ably concerned about recent reports of pesticide contami- nation of Montana waterfowl, but the Kansas Fish and Game Commission has not yet received any precise informa- tion on the scope of the situa- tion. "As soon as we know any more, we'll immediately get the word out," reports Fish and Game waterfowl biologist Marvin Kraft. Montana De- partment of Fish and Game technicians are currently studying the scope of the problem before making any final recommendations. The issue is also being addressed by directors of wildlife de- partments of Central Flyway states at a meeting of the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. The problem stems from ingestion by birds in eastern Montana of Endrin, a pesti- cide applied to an estimated 120,000 acres of Montana wheat earlier this year. Although the chemical has been outlawed by the En- vironmental Protection Agency, it was temporarily exempted from that restric- tion last spring to combat an infestation of cutworms in Montana croplands, Kraft said. Biologists in Montana found unusually high concen- I I HI Nice 2 bedroom bungalow house, 4 years old, located south of Courtland Elevator on east side of highway.

All new rugs, fully insulated, front room, living room, kitchen, washer and dryer built in tration of the chemical in the fatty tissues of ducks, geese, and grouse sampled earlier this month. An alert was issued from Montana, since Endrin levels in the tissues of some birds were several times higher than what is consid- ered acceptable by the En- vironmental Protection Agency. Although Montana is con- sidered a relatively minor contributor to the duck flights passing through Kansas dur- ing fall migrations, Kraft ex- plained, waterfowl banding studies over the years indi- cate that Montana waterfowl do pass through Kansas, more commonly in the western regions of the state. "We expect to know more in a week or so," Kraft said. "Meanwhile, most Kansas hunters who have brought home teal during the Septem- ber 12-20 early teal season are keeping the birds in the freezer until more is known." Fall Fishing It is time for the fall hunting season and people have started to put away their fishing rods and tackle boxes and get out their shot- guns and decoys. But don't get over anxious and miss out on one of the better fishing seasons. Fish usually go through a period of activity in the fall as the water coils from the summer heat, and some good fish can be taken at this time. Walleye and crappie in particular go through a period of inactivity in the summer and then have a burst of activity in the fall. Record Classifieds Bring Fast Results!

A set line or bank line takes just a few minutes to put up on the way to the blind in the morning and can yield a nice channel cat when you come back after the day's hunt. Or, if you have to cross a stretch of open water, try trolling a large spoon or a lure such as a hot-n-tot for walleye or white bass on the way back to the car. Just remember that as the water cells the fish get slower, also. If the hunt- ing is slow, try jigging around the brush for crappie. They won't be schooled up as heav- ily as in the spring, but a nice catch can be made and they can still put up a good fight.
