The barn was full of hay and grain. No other buildings were harmed, however. All the milking equip¬ ment ivas'saved. Ten young stock were lost but fortunately the milk cows were n the pasture so they remained unharmed. Algonquin was called in and they brought one of their pumpers. The bulk trucks from the Dean Milk Company did an excellent job of supplying water for the fire de¬ partment. The lalarm was turned in at 11 o'clock, but the fire was well on its way then. The cause of the fire was lightning. It was nice of a neighbor, Jack Oliver, who lived within four miles to take Mr. Tinberg's daily cows to his farm where they are being milked. Mr. Tinberg is anticipating re¬ placing the barn as soon as pos¬ sible.

Spencer, presidoit of SRA, INEDT exams were administered to more than 366,000 students in 9th and 10th grade classes across the nation. The certificates are provided for students scoring in the top Quarter of each state's particlpsmts, by grade.

A special aim of the program, the principal added, is to enable parents and educators to provide realistic guidance and motivation for high school youngsters.
