The recent cool weather has demonstrated the need for such a heater as the pool has been able to continue operating and giving swimming lessons. Contributions should be given to the Superior Swimming Pool or to the Farmers State Bank.

Approximately 40 percent of the Guide Rock rural customers were converted from multi- party to one and four-party service Wednesday. The remaining 60 percent of the Superior's application ranked first 38th of the 77 Nebraska sewage treatment projects given pariority by the Nebraska Environmental Control council. More than $400 million are needed to meet Nebraska's sewage treatment needs and only a'small amount of that is available, according to James L. Higgins, director of the State Department of Environmental Control. As only $11.1 million in federal funds are available for the fiscal year which began July 1, only the first 26 municipalities will receive funds this year. The list was weighed in favor of those municipalities which have large populations and severe need for sewage treatment. Metropolitan Omaha area communities received the top 26 and should receive funding of $223,000 this year. Superior's application, ranked 38th, was approved for $150,000.

After that, a final document will be produced. "We hope that this document changes have been successful and Superior probably wouldn't need to increase the size of its sewage treatment plant in the immediate future. Plans are underway to in- crease the size of the city's water supply system because of the continued growth in demand for water by both industrial and residential customers. Tentative plans are to add at least an additional two and possibly four wells to the present system. The wells will be in the new well field north- east of Superior. Two of the four wells have been drilled and test pumping will begin this week. Beaumont said the present will haveconsiderableinfluence wells are meeting useage on state senators as well as demands but the additional state and local officials as they wells would allow a better plan for the future of recharge of the present wells Nebraska," commented Dr. and lengthen their projected priorities, giving them the best chance of obtaining the federal and state monies which will pay 67.5 percent of construction costs.

The tour which started at Wymore included visits to 14 of the association's top herds. Included in the stops Friday was a visit to the Oscar Tegt- meier and Sons farm southeast of Davenport. The Tegtmeier herd was started in the mid 1950's with the purchase of three females. The second tour stop on Saturday was at the Vernon Yost and Sons farm near Edgar. The Yost's have been in the Hereford business since 1942 but didn't purchase their first Polled Herefords until 1960. They were purchased from Alfred Schutte and Sons of Guide Rock and showed in 4-H at the county and state fairs. Their cow herd consists of 75 registered cows and 50 com- mercial cows. At noon Saturday the group stopped at the Alfred Schutte and Sons farm northwest of Guide Rock where they were served lunch and inspected the Schutte herd. The Schuttes have been raising Polled Herefords on their 1,320 acre farm since 1955. Tour stop 12 was at the Vic M. Bargen farm near Abdal. The Bargen herd was started in 1963 and has expanded to more than 40 head, all of the Lamplighter bloodline. Their farm has been in the family 53 years. In 1970 Vic and his wife, Marilyn, built a new home on the farm and this year added a large enclosed machine shed and future sales area. They had planned to show their animals in a new corral, completed for the tour, but because of the recent rains, they had to show the animals in the pasture south and east of the homestead. Following the visit to the Bargen herd the tour moved to Chester to visit the Leonard Kuhlmann and R, C. Polled Hereford farms. The Kuhlmann herd was started in 1964 while the RC Polled Hereford herd began in 1966. emergency medical equipment available.
