Officially the project has been known as the Park River Community Swimming Pool and the organizational meeting was held March 28, 1955. Roland Bate- man was elected president of the group with Fred Silliman, serving as secretary. The pool, which is located in River park. across from the Power house, measures 35 feet x 82% feet. The shallow end of the pool has a depth of two feet, while the oppo- site end is graded down to nine feet for diving. Two fiberglass diving boards have been ordered for the pool, one being a three- meter board and the other a one- meter board. They have not yet favor of continuing the federal controls on the production and marketing of the 1957 crop. Only 34 opposing ballots were cast in the county at the refendum which was held Friday. A total of 2,319 voters favored the supports. A two-thirds majority of all ballots cast were needed to carry the measure. The Farmers Union in North Dakota waged a pubilicity cam- paign urging a "yes" vote just pre- vious to the referendum. The level at which the 1957 crop will be supported by the govern- ment depended on the outcome of the referendum. Under quotas, the support rate would be a national ..... -e of $2 a bushel which is (v ' . about 82.5 per cent of pamty and the same as this year.

Challey, of NDAC Fargo, district extension supervisor and Orville Jacobson also of Fargo, administration assis- tant, taking part. The extension program in Walsh County is carried on through the Walsh County School at a total cost of $8,000 a year. Work of the program has increased considerab- ly and operation expenses are also higher, necessitating the need of an additional $2,000 per year. In other counties, extenaonwork is under the direct jurisdiction of the county commissioners and is maintained out of funds raised by the 13 mill levy assessed for coun- ty expense. Wa;s and means of raising this ded revenue were discussed pro al con by the group which final- ly voted to put the question of fi- nancing extension work in Walsh county up to the people by giving them an opportunity to vote on it at the November election• The same committee was reap- pointed by Chairman Gudjates, with the provision that others may be drafted to work on the project.

Other places visited included pineapple farms and a factory, his- torical places nd the world-fam- ous Waikiki Beach.

A total of 2,319 voters favored the supports. A two-thirds majority of all ballots cast were needed to carry the measure. The Farmers Union in North Dakota waged a pubilicity cam- paign urging a "yes" vote just pre- vious to the referendum. The level at which the 1957 crop will be supported by the govern- ment depended on the outcome of the referendum.

Challey, of NDAC Fargo, district extension supervisor and Orville Jacobson also of Fargo, administration assis- tant, taking part. The extension program in Walsh County is carried on through the Walsh County School at a total cost of $8,000 a year. Work of the program has increased considerab- ly and operation expenses are also higher, necessitating the need of an additional $2,000 per year. In other counties, extenaonwork is under the direct jurisdiction of the county commissioners and is maintained out of funds raised by the 13 mill levy assessed for coun- ty expense. Wa;s and means of raising this ded revenue were discussed pro al con by the group which final- ly voted to put the question of fi- nancing extension work in Walsh county up to the people by giving them an opportunity to vote on it at the November election• The same committee was reap- pointed by Chairman Gudjates, with the provision that others may be drafted to work on the project.
