Benson Reveals Revision Of Agricultural Dept. A proposed reorganization of the* Department of Agriculture was announced last week by Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Benson. Re- organization of the department will become effective after Nov. 1 allo~ing interested parties time to comment and make suggestions on the proposal. The new organization puts all service agencies of the department under four main groups: (1) Fed- eral-States relations; (2) market- ing and foreign agriculture; (3) agricultural stabilization, and (4) agricultural credit. Department of Agriculture of- fices in Crook county remain rel- atively unchanged. Only change in the Soil Conservation Service involves the discontinuing of the regional offices with their func- tions transferred to the state of- [ices. The Agricultural Conservation ]Program office of the Production and Marketing Administration here will retain its same functions but will operate under the name of Agricultural Conservation Program Service. In announcing the reorganiza- tion, Benson said, "We propose to continue and to use the commun- ity, county and state farmer com- mittees which have administered many phases of conservation and price support programs. These committees will be a part of the Agricultural Stabilization group and will have important respon- sibilities both in the agricultural conservation program and in the various commodity programs such as marketing quotas and price sup- ports." One of the major changes of the 1)roposed reorganization would transfer the functions of the PMA and the Bureau of Agricultural Economics to other services. --Vaccine (Continued from First Page) Salk said that tests conducted on 637 humans had repeatedly demonstrated that the vaccine can produce in man antibodies theo- retically protective against the major viruses of polio,--and also demonstrated the safeness of the vaccine itself. But he emphasized that it's now mecessary to determine whether the vaccine can ac~lly protect the disease in nature. Salk said that would be the acid test--pro-i tection under natural conditions vf exposure against the disease. The University of Pittsburg prof- essor said that large scale pro- duction of the vaccine was possible. --Weather (Continued from First Page) 1951 1952 1953 Alva ................20.88 14.06 15.08 Devils Tower __16.89 14.06 15.78 ~Hulett ..............18.32 9.06 10.61 ]Keyhole Dam ..14.17 11.65 10.47 ]Moorcroft ........ 16.98 9.69 9.19 Rockypoint ...... 15.66 9.98 11.07 Upton ............. 15.85 13.50 11.54 Sundance .......... 17.96 12.95 13.99 --Gas Tax (Continued from First Page) i, county road construction.

This included four years each of English, a foreign lang- uage, math and history. Students under that system, the board said, had a full four years of hard work to earn the sixteen units required for graduation. Today, the picture has changed, the board said. Shop work, physi- cal education, vocational and com- mercial have appeared and do not require any preparation outside of class. The board said that students were able to complete 16 units of work in less than four years of high school work. It indicated however, that it felt that students graduating in less than four years were not mature enough to cope with the world. The uniform standards adopted: by the board follow: BASIC Class of 1954: will graduate on 16 units distributed as each school has required in the past. Class of 1955: base records on semester hour basis. 175 semes- ter hours required distributed as follows: a. English - 20 sem. hrs; 30 of which shall be grammar, compo- sition, and literature. 10 may be journalism, public speaking, or dramatics. b. Mathematics - 20 sem. hrs.; 10 of which shall be Algebra 1, the other 10 may be geometry, al- gebra II, or general arithmetic. c. Science - 20 sem. hrs.; Gen- eral science, biology, physics or chemistry, with the two latter pre- ferably limited to juniors and sen- iors. d. Social Studies - 30 sem hrs. 20 of which shall be world history and American history, and the other 10 shall be divided between civics and everyday problems of living. e. Physical Ed. - 15 sem hrs. If physically unable to take P. E., then band or chorus may be sub- stituted. f. Electives - 50 sem hrs. One class period per week running through one semester shall consti- tute 5 semester hours. Class of 1956: 195 semester hours, increasing electives to 70 semester hrs. Class of 1957: 210 semester hours, increasing electives to 85 semester hours, of which 5 semes- ter hours shall be in Fine Arts-- music, music appreciation, art, crafts, dramatics, declamation, de- bate, etc. Beginning with this class of 1957, 4 years of High School attendance shall be requir- ed. Class of 1958: 220 semester hours, increasing electives to 95 semester hours, of which 10 se- mester hours shall be in fine arts.
