"If there ever was ,a year to line up feed supplies during the summer, this is it. For bar- ley, it is a matter o getting it before foreign buyers do." In addition to the short bar- ley crop, carryover supplies of all feed grains in the sate probably are the smallest in 10 years. The oats crop is down 14 per corot from las,t year a, nd 17 per cent below average. And the state's field corn crop is down 2 per cent from last ,ear and 27 per cent below the 5-year average. Wheat could he}p bridge part of the feed gap if sock- men .act promptly. For the first time shwe the oernme,nt sold wheat cheap during World War II, wheat prices are low enough to compete with other feed grains. Moreover they may drop a li.ttle more during the peak of harvest in early autumn. Export demand, however, may cause vcheat prices to ad- vance sharply soon after lar- vest. Towel Helps A beach towel is the best weapon against schistosome cercarial dermatitis, the state Department of Health seid recently. The condition, more com- monly called swimmer's itch, has been reported de- veloping among swimmers in Eastern Washington. A rash appears, with in. tense itching, the depart- ment said, when a small free-swimming perasite bur- rws under the skin and dies. The reaction lasts for about a week. The condition can be avoided by using a towel immediately after swim- ming, t h e department advised. eWEATHER max. min. pre.

Riggs, superintenden,t o C heney schools, says his work here wilt closely parallel that in the West Valley dis- tafict, here he 'last worked. He joined the West Valley district as an adm'mis,trative assis- tant in 1960 and was named assis.ant superintendent on July 1. He then accepted the Cheney position earlier this month. Riggs told a reporter on the Spokane Valley Herald last week the Cheney situation re- sembles recent developments in th West Valley district. "The Cheney buitd'mg pro- gram calls for the construction of a new tfigh school, eonver- ,stm of an old .h;tgh shoot building into a junior high, the demolition of a bufld,g, prep- aration of atMetic facilities and corstruction of a new adn- istration building--just as has bee,n done here at West Val- ley," P'ggs said.

"Cheney voters will cast bal- lots Sept. 15 on a $500,000 bond issue for a new high sch, ool and vote on a special- purpose levy of $178,000," he continaaed.

He 'drives" his car under the watchful eye of an instrumet which records his every move. Unit Is Unique "[ he simulated instruction unit is a unique method of pro- iding instruc(m, to beginmng drivers, and it cuts down on the classroom and actual driv- ihg sessions of students. The instruments are situat- ed within a mobile trailer, and are lined up on two sides, wi, th six units on each side. Each unit is designed exactly like an automobile, and he drivers ,respond to situations deputed on a full width screen at the end of the trailer. The machine registers ac- tions of the drivers, tells ex- ,actly ,hcw fast .each is going, how they use their brakes, lights, steering mecharAsm, and a number of other deta. The machine s furnished by Evans lnditstries, Inc., and is utilized through caoperatim of Allstate Insurance Co. Link Division, General Precisions, inc., manufacture arid service the machines. Provides Experience The driver trainer simulated in.struction teaches the function and inter-relationship o the driving controls mechanical coordination reqtti,red in auto- mobile driving, and provides experience in safe dving ,lrO- eedures, as well as many other items necessary in cultivating good drivers. It offers realism for the young leammr and is endorsed by the National Safeey Coun- cil. l,l is reported to cut costs in driver education up to 40 per cent, allowing for fewer in- structors and less time re- quired in the actual instruc- tion, for beginning drivers. Each student spends from two to three hours on the instm- znents and is graded individ- ual and automatiea.y as he progresses. ++ +State Pla0s Program: le said fla+e State De,part- memt of Education p]a_s to use two smulators this year in a pot program.
