on Friday, October 2, it was er
roneously reported that the meet-
was for the purpose of electing
officers, when the purpose was in

last week's article were,, elected
at a meeting in the Franklin
school building prior to the be
ginning of school.
The executive board decided to
reduce the local fee to 25 cents
this vear, this amount to take
care of local expenses. The goal
set for this year is 100 per cent
membership, and the secretary,
Miss Edna Jamison, requests that
all teachers who have not paid
state and local dues to do. so
soon. She reminds these that
'United we grow, divided we fail."

Q. What steps should he taken
in storing a tractor for the winter?
A. If the tractor is equipped
with rubber tires, block it up so
the tires carry no weight. It is
best to keep the machine under
cover so the tires will not be ex
posed to the sun. Also see that
there is no oil or grease on the
tires. Start the tractor every week
or so and allow it to idle until
the engine is warm. This wiM coat
all engine parts, particularly the
cylinder walls, with fresh hot oil
and will prevent rust due to mois
