Mr. Stanley Koch made this statement today as he accepted the chairmanship of the January 1967 Huntley March of Dimes campaign. "I think most of us would con¬ sider it alarming if we heard about an epidemic in wHlch a new case struCK every other minute, which was the second greatest de¬ stroyer of life, and which caused half of all cases of mental retar¬ dation," declared Mr. Koch. "Yet, he pointed out. "Birth de¬ fects are resportsible for all this, and for much more human dam¬ age. Many defects are not appar¬ ent at birth. They appear later in life, causing physical or mental disability. "The March of Dimes is making important progress in birth de¬ fects, but we need increajse^^b- lic support to continue and ^PHk- pand these programs." supported centers wh«r« bii|k-dB- fect children recOiye stBi/or treatment from teams of tmned medical professionals. There are now 77 of these centers in oper¬ ation. In research scientists supported by March of Dimes grants have developed ways of detecting sev¬ eral defects of body chemistry that can cause mental retardation, and are studying the hereditary and environmental factors which affect a baby's development be¬ fore birth. "In addition," said Mr. Koch, "The March of Dimes is conduct¬ ing a national educatoinal program to inform every expectant mother of the importance of prenatal care in minimizing risks to the new- bom child."

New Manager At Pattersons Mr. Gene Lindsey has taken over the management at the J. H. Pat¬ terson Co. in Huntley, it was an¬ nounced this week. Mr. Lindsey came to Huntley last September from Flanagan, Illinois, where he managed a retail lumber yard for the previous twelve years. Mr. Lindsey's home town is Clin¬ ton, Hlinois. He, with his wife Norma, tbeir five sons and one daughter have been living In Hunt¬ ley since his emitof iMiut.

Huntley Greets The New Year sm Pictured above aro Huntley residente wekowing in the New Yesr at the Hnntley Ameriten Legion. This wss one of the Isrgesto etotrds the Legion has ever hod ot a New Yeor'o donee. information On School Vote On Saturday, January Uth. 1967 the voters or School District 158 wil! be asked to vote on a 21 cent incr¬ ease in the Educational Tax Rate, raising the present rate of $1.60 tc $1.81. This increase will be based on ihe tortal assessed vatuation of Dis¬ trict 158, which is $15,350,601. and will bring in an additional revenue in tbe amount of $32,141. per year. This will mean to the tax payer an increase Of 21 cents per $1C0 assess¬ ed valuation per year. Further ex¬ tended, on a house that has an asses sed valuation of $10,000. this would amount to a tax increase of $21 .CC per year or $1.75 per month. The Educational Fund (which we are asking to have increased) is used largely for teachers salar- KS. custodian salaries, supplies, and building expense and main¬ tenance. Money from one fund maybe transfered to another fund temporarily, but it must be trans¬ ferred back into the proper fund when the tax money is received by ihe District. The net cost to educate eoch student in the 1965-66 school year Was ^73, an increase of J^' over the 1964-66 schooi year; w/pre¬ sent enrollment is 740 stvdonts. "jl^^pil^AiiiftaCtily' ipWH0^i^-*^^"^o|iO(rt-'^ each month out of the Educational Fund at the present tij^^It is our estimate that at the ^i^f the 1966-67 school year we will have a deficit of approximately $20,000. To help correct this situation the Board of Education has asked that all Department Budgets be review¬ ed and cut back whereever possible and Anticipation Warrants will then be issued for the deficit. When a tax referendum is passed it takes a period of one year be¬ fore the District receives the mon¬ ey. This increase is desperately needed if we are to move mto the hew High School Addition which i^hOuld be ready for occnpancy at ihe end of January. The Board finds itself in a help¬ less situation. The Educatk>nal Tax Rate has been defeated twice be¬ fore and dollars have been stretch¬ ed as far as possible. There is no altemative now but to operate on Anticapation Warrants and if the vote fails again there will be no altemative but to discontinue some of the departments. These are the facts which the Board of Education presents to you, the voters of School District 168. What you are willing to do about them will be determined by how you vote on Saturday, Janu¬ ary 14, 1967. If you are hiterested in seeing the educati(Hi of your children continue at its present level be sure you do go to the jtolls and vote yes.
