Gales 4-H Girl Wins President’s Trophy Board Makes Good Sale of School Bonds 2 «/ 2 % WITH S9OO PREMIUM LOWEST PRICE ON RECORD HERE Believed to be the lowest rate at which bonds of a school district or municipality of Redwood county have ever been sold, the school board of independent dis trict one disposed of $85,000 in bonds to help finance the new high school building here Friday afternoon. The rate is two and one-half per cent interest while the brok ers are to pay a S9OO premium and have agreed to furnish the bonds and to pay for the approv ing legal opinion. While the ex pense of these two items has only been estimated, the district saves several hundred dollars by the provision. The Minneapolis firm of Junell,-Driscoll, Fletcher, Dor sey and Barker is to pass on the legality of the issue. Rather spirited bidding resulted at the Lincoln school Friday night when representatives of 11 firms, after examining and commenting favorably on the operation and bookkeeping methods of the dis trict, were called on to submit their figures. Starting at three per cent, the oral bids became more and more favorable as the representatives made new offers in turn, one standard stipulation in such cases being that any bidder who passes twice is out of the running. Even tually the rate got down to two and one-half per cent and the amount of the premium was the remaining factor as it moved up with each bid, sometimes with a $3 or $5 boost and at times with quite substantial advances. The bonds were finally sold to a syndicate of four firms, Harold E. Wood Company, Kalman Com pany, Bigelow, Webb and Com pany and Piper Jaffray and Hop wood. Other firms and their best bids were: First National banks of Minneapolis and St. Paul, SB9O premium; Wells, Dickey Company and Alison Williams Company, $435 premium; George C. Jones company and Justus F. Lowe, $375, premium and Northwestern National bank with a $l3O pre mium, all the above offering two and one-half per cent. The Citi zens State bank of Redwood Falls dropped out of the bidding at two and three-quarters per cent. The first $5,000 of the bonds will come due December 1, 1939 with SIO,OOO bonds retiring each year thereafter until the issue is paid off in 1947. The Lincoln school bonds of $175,000 will be due January 1, 1939 at which time the sinking fund now accruing will make it possible to pay off about SBO,OOO which will leave $95,000 to be refinanced, with principal payments to start in 1948. If the board at that time sees fit to continue payments on the SIO,OOO per year basis, the district can be out of debt 20 years from now and have an ex cellent school system. The city of Redwood Falls re cently sold $21,000 in certificates of indebtedness for street treat ment at two and one-half per cent with a premium of SSO, but is to pay for the bonds and attorney fees. However these bonds have a callable feature which makes them somewhat less attractive to buyers although this was deemed valuable to the city as it has pros pects of getting funds to pay the bonds before they-mature. The following amounts for in terest and retirement of issue will be included in school district lev ies cf future years, payable the year following in each case: 1936, $2,125; 1937, $2,125; 1938, $7,125; 1939, $12,000; 1940, $11,750; 1941, $11,500; 1942, $11,250; 1943, sll,- 000; 1944, $10,750; 1945, $10,500; and 1946, $10,250, V Morgan Hunters in Head-on Collision Morgan Frank and Alvin Seimer and A 1 Anthony met with an auto accident near Sauk Cent er last Tuesday afternoon.

Rogers, county auditor. The city’s rate will be 104.4 mills, made up of the follow ing items: state 12.45 mills, county 18.15 mills, one mill school tax, independent school district one levy 44.5 mills and 28.3 mills for the city. The rate on farm lands in school district one is 15.6 compared with last year’s 22.7 mills. Three of last year’s items were slightly higher, the city and state making the larger reductions. The state rate last year was 13.57, the county 18.33, the school 42.6 and the city 29.4 which with the one mill school levy made a total of 104.9 mills. Belview tops the village levies with 47.3 mills while Clements is second with 33.7 and Milroy third with 33 mills. Delhi property owners get off lightest with 12.8 mills while North Redwood pays 16.1 for village purposes. Township rates range from 13 mills in Springdale and 10.8 in Morgan to 2.3 mills in Vesta and Redwood Falls townships. The complete schedule from which any county taxpayer can compute the rate on his property appears on page 10. The school district one rate has been increas ed since that schedule was made up, however and figures given here are the correct ones. Most interesting, perhaps, are the “electric eyes” which will au tomatically turn on lights when outside light is too dim for normal school activities and turn them off again when the sun shines so brightly artificial light is not needed. These photoelectric cells which operate motors to change the light switches will be placed on two or three sides of the build ing where light conditions are different. The candle power needed at all times can be set on a switch board. School authorit ies contemplate a saving in elec tricity through the switch-off de vice.

That numbers and the threat of Weapons count where police and the agencies of law seldom penetrate was learned by Peter Paskewitz, Louis Grams, and Fred Radtke of Lucan.

Paskewitz insisted it was his, but the ten men demanded that he give it to them. One of them stepped toward him threateningly and Paskewitz knocked him down. Another lunged toward him and Paskewitz slugged him.

NUMBER 22 Top National Honor Earned By Hard Work FLORENCE ERICKSON, 20, DISTINGUISHED IN LEADERSHIP The President’s trophy, highest 4-H club honor in the nation, will go to Miss Florence Erickson, 20, member of the Gales Rousers, who has been named the most outstanding 4-H club girl in the United States. A club boy will also be selected from thousands throughout the country to receive a cup from President Roosevelt. The girl brings a singular hon or to Redwood county as only once before has a Minnesota can didate represented the 4-H mem bers of the country. Four years ago an Itasca county girl received the trophy. Florence will go to the national 4-H club congress in Chicago Fri day, where the award will be of ficially announced. Catherine Winn of Seaforth, another Red wood county club member, will also attend the congress, repres enting the state in canning judg ing. That Miss Erickson’s selection as most all-around club girl is justifiable, may be judged from her record. In seven years of club activity she has completed 30 projects in as many phases of the work. She has made 17 demon strations for local achievement days and county fairs in bread baking, cake making, room fur nishing and health. Twice she has presented silent bread baking demonstrations at the state fair and in 1935 was grand champion in room furnish ing judging, also exhibiting in the room furnishing class. Evidence of her versatility is her herd of 16 purebred lambs, built up from one purebred ewe. Her two major projects have been room furnishing and junior leadership. She organized the Gales club three years ago and has served as president ever sin ce. This year she is secretary of the county 4-H federation. Her competence and willing ness to co-operate in the organi zation’s work was shown last year at the 4-H achievement day in Wabasso. A state requirement for the bread baking demonstration was that 20 persons must be en tered in order that three trips from the county could be award ed. Leaders were worried when they found only 19 registered for the project. Florence was there with her room furnishing exhibit, but when she learned that one more person was needed for the baking demonstration she offered to fill in. She won one of the trips. Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Erickson of Tracy she is a graduate of Tracy High school with the class of 1932 of which she was salutatorian. She has lived at home since her gradua tion and it was there that Adrian M. Wilson, county agent and Miss Lenore Golden, home demonstra tion agent found her when they went to bring the exciting news of her trip. Characteristically, she was busy making a display for a 4-H club meeting. ! Farm Bureau Expects Crowd at Convention Seventy-three county Farm Bureaus are expected to have of ficial delegates at the state con vention in St. Paul December 28- 31, the greatest number on record. Several new county organizations have been established since the meeting last January. Joseph Zwach, county bureau president, Adrian M. Wilson, county agent and Mrs. Otto Flom of Delhi, county home and com munity chairman, expect to at tend. The dates of the federa tion coincide with those of Farm and Home Week which will also be held in St. Paul. The 1937 membership cam paign, now under way in most counties, indicates that next year’s membership will substan tially exceed that of the present year. Boy Scout Board Of Review Formed An organization meeting of the Boy Scout Board of Review of Redwood Falls was held Monday evening by the three members, C. N. Mickelson, chairman, Rev. Geoffrey O’Sullivan and D. W. Gold. The purpose of the group is to pass on first and second class scout tests, merit badges and ap plications for Life, Star, Eagle and Eagle Palm ranks. They will meet the second Tuesday of evefy month in the Lincoln school.
