Watson Lowe and Forrest Hare Clash Future "For once in your life will you shut up and sit down." So said At¬ torney for the Farmers, Hal Mc- Kenney to Cial Skinner Jr. at the assessment of McHemy County hearing at Cary on Thursday, Sept. 7. The above was said after Mr. Skinner stated that the Hugest and best use of the property not wbat it was presently being used for should be the amount that it be assessed at. Chairman of the Board of Re¬ view, G. Watson Low contended that such taxation would force the fanner who was farming his land! to go bankn4)t because he would not be making enough by raising farm products to pay the high taxes if the farm was taxed at what it might someday be used for in the line of business or subdivisions. Louis Engelbrecht, Extension Ad¬ visor for the U.S. Department of Agriculture presented research which showed that based on the national productivity irtdex, farm land in McHenry County was worth $300 per acre for the poorest land to $900 per acre for the best. He chaiged that taxii>g farmers off their land would result in a food crisis. Hare asked if operating gravel pits should be getting the same break as the farmer and Engel¬ brecht replied that a gravel pit in operation is a business enterprise and he would not put them in a farm classification. "They should be assessed as a business." he said. Continued on Page Seven LOWE Arthur T. Tyrrell, Sheriff of McHeno C:ounty, was preaented with a certlHcate of appreciation Iiy Arthur T.

I -e I. •i-i.ei; lihrary staff at the junior high and high schtK>l are 1 rcfessitnal'y qualified end can ;cicqualely provide the necessary services to implement the library- m''iia pragram.

An effective prrgrnm oT liarary !n;lruction exists ¦,if the junior high ' -•! the high school. R< "ommerdatior>s — 1. Since the cleinentary school d; ;s net have a centralized library, meke a concerted effort ti acquire adeouate space for a library-media facility. 2. All print and non-pririit ura¬ te riais on the edementary leve> should be centrally catalogued. 3 The AV budget for materials and equipment shoi»ld be admin¬ istered by the junior high librar¬ ian. This would facilitate more ef¬ fectively a truly unified media pro- gicm on the junior high level. 4. Co-ordination of materials se¬ lection for the elementary and junior high school should be the I esponsibllity of junior hi^ li¬ brarian. 5. In the event of a possible ex- ransion program at the seraor high library facility, provide more workroom space and coitference room. Tiiere is a need presently for more electrical outlets and car¬ peting if a full program of media activities is to take place in the library.
