And it's all because summer weather conditions wern't too suit- • able for a good hay crop. Clare county's Extension Director George Mac Queen and MSU specialists -warned several weeks ago that the hay supply was likely to be some nine per q^nt under normal, and feed supplies and market prices would be affected. Hillman believes farmers should consider plans for substituting grain or silage for hay. "They should plan their feeding programs so they will have a minimum of 15 pounds of hay per cow each day all winter long," says the specialist. Lower amounts of hay may reduce butter-, fat tests. How much grain should be fed? It depends on how much milk you want produced. Hillman suggests that dairymen feed at least SjOOO pounds^of grain per cow, including 500 to 700 pounds of protein supplement. "The best herds in the state will be feeding over 6,000 pounds of grain," he points out. There were 141 herds >ChristntOS which made outstanding ac- -T7- * * complishments enrolled in WorkSHOp the Extension program to boost grain feeding last year. The average increase in income overfeed costs amounted to $47 per cow. The average dairymen in the program fed 1,000 pounds more grain.

May Order Tree Stock "Poppin Appaloose Patches", an stallion owned by Melvin and Marvin Bon- ||" ham, won Grand Champion ribbon at the Saginaw Fair last week, Friday. Other honors won by entries from Bonham's Sugar Creek Ranch include Reserve Grand Champion, mare, first place, yearling stallion, second place, gelding. A colorful part of the show was the Indian Cos- I turns ■X competition. Some 10 million young trees are now on sale throught the Conservation Department as planting stock for future timber production, erosion controls and farm windbreaks on private lands. Stock may be ordered for delivery this fall or in the spring of 1964 under a system introduced last year to help landowners plan ahead with their reforestation projects. Offered at approximate production costs are red pine seedlings and trans plants, .white and jack pine seedlings, white spruce transplants, and Austrian pine seedlings. Red pine again accounts for the largest share of the Department's nursery stock. Fall shipments win be made from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31, weather permitting. Official stock price lists and order blanks are available from the Department's forestry division in Lansing, or at offices Of district foresters artd county extension agents, Clean air being passed upward through the mist will oxidize iron in the water. Part of it will be blown away as gas or vapor, while the remainder will be changed into a state easier to filter away in the following process. Cleaner, colorless, softer water will be the final product.

The State Police reported that although delayed death reports are expected to increase the toll somewhat, the difference of 17 deaths, or a reduction of 9.6 percent, is not expected to be overtaken enough to put the month in the loss column. The provisional eight- month toll is 1,128 or, 12.6 percent more than 1,002 in 1962. The Labor Day weekend toll, which was recorded between 6 p.m, Friday to midnight Monday, was 31 deaths in 19 accidents, six Of them multiple deaths. Two persons were killed in each of three accidents, three in one, four in one, and five in one. The death toll was five more than 26 in 1962, and was the highest in 10 years. Election Held The Little League annual meeting Tuesday night at the Clare school drew an attendance of 100 or over persons who heard reports of the year's activity and elected officers for 1964. President is Al lacco who took one of the leadership jobs in last summer's project to light the playing field here and return boys baseball to recognized Little League standing. One avowed goal for next season is to bring district championship games_ to Clare for an end-of-season sports spectacle. Elected to serve with the new-president is Vice President, Lyle Gallagher, Secretary Dale Lyons, Treasurer, Robert Camp - bell. Umpire-in-chief is Joe Greer while players' agents are Glenn Vance for the senior division, and Ivan Lozen for the junior division. Clare's Chamber of Commerce, currently floundering in a low-activity cycle and' suffering from members' lack of interest and financial support started plans for re-juven- ation at a meeting Tuesday evening at Barnes' Town & Country. • Its president, Marlin Alexander, "laid it on the line" when he told about 20 members there, that the organization must have more funds and active cooperation or else begin to cut back some services and projects that are designed to bring in to Clare tourists from the cities and travelers from the expressways. Officers and directors of the group called the meeting to let members know how badly their bootstraps need a'tug! - There is ah expected $800 deficit after heavy cost of leasing three giant expressway signs which promote Clare as a place to eat, shop, service autos and stay overnight. One of the signs is lighted, adding to the expense, - At least three major promotions this year ran in the red to deplete the treasury still further. They were the January Winter Festival, Michigan Week, and retailers' June Sidewalk Sale. Chamber of Commerce leaders believe that members specifically, and the entire town generally would suffer from the suspension or curtailment of any of these activities. The alternative is more members, - more dues collected, - more help with the management and working operation of projects. Directors heldva meeting a week ago Monday to decide what to ask members to do, "Its the members' organization and each one has got to come across with help to make it go.", Alexander said. "Too much of the work load has been falling on too few individuals." He asked for a show of hands from those who assisted in promoting, first the Winter Festival, then Michigan Week, then Sidewalk Sale Day. When no more than one to three or four men claimed' credit for working on the various projects, the meeting was opened for suggestions how to enlist better co-operation. A committee, appointed Tuesday will analyze business activity in Clare and recommend a list of pres- Friends in Clare learned las t week of the death of Kenneth C.

It was the season opener for both squads. Coach George Perry sees his team as underdogs in nearly every encounter this fall." Although his Green and White gridders are, "coming together" in the shape of a team improving with practice, he still isn't promising anything more than a brand of football that will display courage ahd interest for spectators.- Clare goes to Cheboygan tomorrow night for the second game of the schedule and does not open at home until October 4. On Friday at Gladwin the two teams battled through a scoreless first quarter and Gladwin 'drew first blood with a running score by Jim Young in the sec ond period. Half time score, 7-0. Clare got back into the game with a third quarter score when gains on the field were aided by penalties against Gladwin and Quarterback Tom Dunn crossed the G's line. The point conversion failed. But two quick fourth quarter scores by Dennis Breault and Louie Edgar shut off Clare hopes. Gladwin' s Greg Juneac converted after each of their TDs.
