Date for the election is Monday, September 13. Moist Silage Is Danger In Drouth Drought - stricken corn silage may contain high levels of nitrates which can cause potential problems when fed to livestock, according to Michigan State University authorities. Dr. Clifford C. Beck, Extension veterinarian and ,©on^ld. Hillman,. Extension dairyman, warn farmers that they should not be too hasty in putting corn in the silo. The moisture content of corn silage may remain very high, although several leaves have turned brown near the bottom of the stalk. Allowing more time for the plant to grow and ears to develop could also increase the quality of the silage. Much of the nitrate might also disappear as the result of growth and maturity of the plant. The' Extension specialists suggest these points to avoid nitrate toxicity problems with livestock: (1) Allow the crop to reach maturity before ensiling. (2) Let the silo stand, two to three weeks after filling before feeding the silage. (3) Make feeding changes gradually - feed small amounts for a few days and give added roughage in the form of hay for about a week to permit cattle to adjust to the new feed. (4) Feed grain liberally to dilute the nitrate-containing feed and enhance conversion of nitrate to ammonia. (5) Be sure cattle are receiving adequate levels of Vitamin A. Cattle getting a heavy silage ration and very little hay should receive 30,000 I.U. of Vitamin A per head daily. (6) Be sure cattle are getting iodized salt. Nitrate problems are more serious when cattle are deficient in iodine. The iodine contained in salt fortified with dicodosalicylir- acid is reported to be poorly utilized.

A new yellow reflector tape is being .applied on state trunklines for temporary markings in construction areas. The tape has been under tests by the Highway Department for the past year and has proved highly .successful where all traffic must be channeled into one lane. When applied to a clean dry pavement, with an adhesive primer, the tape has such lasting qualities that even snow plows have failed to dislodge it. St. Cecilia's school will open for first classes on September 8 with forenoon hours only and the same schedule will apply on the following day with the first full day of school on September 10.

Pastors, Elders and Delegates from Arthur Center, Eagle, Elm Grove, Colonville, in this area were among those in attendance. Rev. Alvin Rockey was elected speaker, Walter Kleiner, Clerk, Connie Randall, reporter, Edna Brannon, financial secretary and Marion Kramer, treasurer. As trustee of Findlay College, Walter Kleiner gave a fine report. President Richard Kern of the Winebrenner Theological Seminary at Findlay addressed the group giving the highlights of the Seminary program. One thing worthy of note was that all churches had paid every.obligationinfull. Church extension was given serious consideration with plans outlined for the coming year. Since "Eldership" denotes a meeting of the elders only, and church business now includes delegates of the laity, this term was changed to "Conference", and all future meetings will be announced as the Michigan Conference of the Churches of God in North America. Rev. Charles Hilliard was elected manager of the camp board, Rev. Alvin Rockey, dean, and Rev. Ruth Showers, registrar. The annual memorial service took place the last afternoon of the conference. Connie Randall as chairman, was assisted by Jean- ette Kleiner, Joy Rilett and Delite Kistler. A carnation was presented to each family touched by death during the past year, as a' special ■ part of the service. The following placements of pastors was made by the Board of Appointment and Supervision to include Rev. Charles Hilliard to Arthur Center, and Eagle, Rev. Sarvor, Colonville, the supply pastors, Rev. Ruth Showers, Rev. Roy Miller, and Rev. Virgil Brinkman. The matter of Scholarships for the Churches of God youth was discussed. A special volunteer group is sponsoring a drive for this fund, and any person or group who wishes to give $100 or more per year will receive recognition at the annual meeting, and monthly reports from the college. Groups must be represented by one person. The Conference made a hundred dollar donation, and appointed Glen Armen- trout to represent them. Survey For Stream Banks Improvement Some soil conservation survey work has been done recently in Vernon town-? ship, reports John Foster of the Isabella County Soil Conservation Service. This included a survey for Charles Smith, on stream bank improvement, and James Maloney, a random type drainage. This is a new'practice for Isabella County in the Agricultural Conservation program. This work will involve some stream straightening, shaping and the seeding of the stream banks, also fencing to keep cattle from cutting the banks.
