THE SUNDANCE TIMES ! Sundance, Wyo. Feb. 9, 19561A I/1 County Still Short Of Exceeding 1954 Christmas Seal Sale Crook county still needs $50 to exceed its 1954 Christmas Seal sale, according to Mrs. Lucian Robinson, Jr., Crook county board member of the Wyoming Tubercu- losis and Health Association. Mrs. Robinson urged all residents who had not paid for the 1955 Christmas seals to do so as soon as possible. During the past 50 years, Mrs. Robinson said buying Christmas Seals has become a tradition with many people and little thought is given to the continuing needs of the program. Yet, in urging the purchase of Christmas Seals, Mrs. Robinson pointed out that 18 of the state's 23 counties reported one or more cases of tuberculosis last year. In all, 68 new cases were reported. Wheat Allotments- For Farms Without May be Secured Farmers on land on which no wheat was seeded for grain for any of the years 1953, 1954 and 1055 may apply for a 1956 wheat acreage allotment, according to James D. Wham, chairman of the Crook County Agricultural Stabili- zation and Conservation Commit- tee. However, to be considered for an allotment on a farm which now has none and on which no wheat has been raised for three years, the farmer must apply in writing to the county ASC committee by March 1, 1956. Blank application forms are available in the county ASC office in Sundance. Information is avail- able there as to whether there is now an allotment on a farm or whether it meets the requirements for consideration for an allotment as a new wheat farm. The committee said there are definite limitations as to the ex- tent of allotments allowable and usually, where only a very small allotment can be obtained, the farmer is just as well benefited under the regulations which per- mit seeding of up to 15 acres of wheat without an allotment. Survey to Be Sent to SHS Grads Since 1950 A survey of Sundance high school graduates since 1950 will be carried out at the high school, Supt. Wes Huckins said this week. The superintendent said the fac- ulty was already working on the questionaire to be mailed out to graduates. He said it would help determine whether the school is teaching the right subjects for this community. ' Huckins said the survey would attempt to discover the most and least valuable subjects and the subject most liked. The survey will also reveal how many grad- uates go to college, how many are housewives, how many are farmers and how many stay in Sundance. The survey will also include other questions. The Sundance Harvesters, who saw their winning streak snapped by the Lead Independents a couple of weeks ago, will have a chance to gain revenge here Saturday Right against the same club. The Independents are the top club in the Homestake league. Be- fore running out of gas in the closing minutes, the Harvesters had given Lead a savage battle, The clMh is set for Saturday Right in the high school gymna- ~. The o~g tap is set for p.m. Feb. 12 officially opens the Week of Dedication in the Methodist church. The title is a very fitting one as Wednesday, Feb. 15 is the first day of the Lenten Season, Friday, Feb. 17 is known as the World Day of Prayer. The week ends on Sunday with Christian people coming to the altar to dedi- cate or re-dedicate themselves to God. The World Day of Prayer is sponsored by the Christian Wo- men's groups around the world and is the day that Christian peo- ple all over the world begin a 48 hour vigil of prayer to the Heaven- ly Father, thus forming a continu- ous communion of prayer around the whole world. This year the W.S.C.S. is sponsoring an after- noon of prayer at the Methodist church. People from other com- munions are invited to come and pray with us on this day. It is the custom of many churches to take a sacrificial offering for some benevolent purpose during the Lenten season. A suitable location for a church retreat and camp site owned by the Methodist Wyoming State Con- ference has long been a great need in this part of the state. A group of laymen purchased the site in Tensleep Canyon called Cir- cle J ranch, and presented it to the conference last year. There is much to be done in the way of building etc. to develop the ranch, so it will be of most service to churches in this area during the whole year. This year the sacrifi- cial offering of the Sundance church will be used to help with this project. Some of you may i not know that due to government regulations the camp at Meadow- lark is no longer suited to our needs and purpose. BEAGLE HOSPITAL Mrs. Orren Clyde and son Wayne Eldon of Osage were dismissed Friday.
