"And what do we have to sRow for all that money today? Nothing."

The picture was taken on an Egyptian farm called "The Pearl of the Desert" . ... carved from the desert in 1939 and now a show place of 259 acres of orchard operated by Andy's host, shown with him above, and family. Practically every farm has such a pigeon loft, made of mud brick . . . the 10,000 occupants provide manure. The other building in the background holds the farm's water supply, part of which comes from deep wells, some from a three-acre storage lake, some from canals. Andy, who has farmed for many years in Pittsfield Township, returned this week from a tep.gthjr exchange farm tour in Egypt.

"I am very pleased with the result of the election; I think it shows that people realize and understand the needs of their school system." But "there are a lot of things to iron out yet," Superintendent Harold Hintz said, and "you can't buUd a school in six months". %' » Until the school is completed, present overcrowded conditions in the schools will continue and probably increase. When the second elementary school goes into operation, however, the present Intermediate School wUl be used as a junior high school; included in the approved bond issue was $35,000 for repair and remodeling of the existing schools, which would, among other things, "upgrade" the Intermediate for junior high use.
