BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Officers Elected For 1961 Mother of Year Committee The annual meeting of the North Dakota Mothers Committee was held April 23rd following the Mothers of the Year luncheon at the Bis- marck Municipal Country Club. Mrs. E. A. Handy, Washburn, state chairman, presided at the meeting. She stressed the impm'tance of informing the public of the aims and the purposes of the National American Mothers Committee, New York City. The national office recently an- nounced the appointment of Mrs. H. W. Case. Bismarck, as regional chairman. This area includes North and South Dakota and Minnesota. Embracing all faiths, the objective of the national organization is to develop and strengthen the moral and spiritual foundation of the American home and to give to the observance of Mother's Day a spirit- ual quality which highlights the siapdards of ideal motherhood and recognize the important role of the mother in the home, the community, the nation and the world, Mrs. Case says. Mrs. Handy stressed that anyone can nominate a mother. Blanks for that purpose will be available ear- ly in 1961 and may be obtained from officers or committee members. In- dividuals and organizations are in- seizure by the food and drug ad- ministration The situation which the cranberry growers faced last fall is a good illustration of what can happen to growers who misuse chemicals on food or feed crops. North Dakota growers should re- member that all the crops we grow are used eit'her as food or feed ip.- eluding flax the meal of which is used as a livestock feed." !

Winners of the 1959 North Dakota Press Women's writing contests were onnouneed at the annual awards banquet. Mrs. C. W. Frost of Lidgerwood, contest chairman, presented certifi- cates for the 5 winners. The 26 first place entries were sent to the national contest chair- man early in March and any nation- al winners will be announced at the national press women's con- vention in June. North Dakota has one category, rural news column, which is not included in the national list. This and seven other first were won by Mrs. Gilman Peterson of New England, who writes for sev- eral publications. This gives her sweepstakes for the 1959 contest. Mrs. Peterson is past president of the North Dakota CowBelles and lives on a ranch, with no telephone service. Mrs. W. E. Shemorry of Williston was second with three top entries In the daily newspaper competi- tion Mrs. Dorothy Collins of The Fargo Forum took first place for news story.

Blue Cross had proposed rate in- , creases as high as 24 per cent, and i Blue Shield had proposed rate in- creases as high as 29 per cent, along . with additional services to be pro- vided under the increased rates. Jensen refused the requests, which were to have gone into effect Jan. 1. He asked Burgum for the opinion on his jurisdiction. The opinion said the Blue Cross plan is a hospital service plan gov- erned under the 1943 North Da- kota code. It also noted that under a chapter of the code enacted in 1947 accident and health insurance plans were excluded from provi- sions of the code, The opinion said, however, that Blue Cross is not an accident and health plan, but simply a health plan. :Burgum noted that connections between the 1943 code and the chapter added in 1947 are not too clear. But. he said, the provisions of the 1943 code pertaining to in- surance contracts at all times make contracts subject to the approval of the commissioner of insurance. The ruling maintained that rates are an integral part of contracts and therefore subject to the commis- -starter's approval. Another point made by the opin- ion concerns the question as to whether a hospital service plan is considered an insurance program. The opinion cited previous rulings by courts that said in effect a hos- pital service plan substantially amounts to an insurance contract. The previous rulings said the mere fact that payment is made to the hospital and not to the subscrib- er, does not change the character of the contract. ---4:3---.

WILl) OATS CHEMICALS FOR FARM TESTS O'NL~' Some North Dakota farmers, esp- ecially along the Canadian line. may be tempted to buy Avadex or Car- byne chemicals in Canada for wild oat control on Norllh Dakota farms 'Tarmers purchasing these chem- icals in Canada and using them in U. S. are doing so at their own risk," says L. A. Jenson.

An estimated 10,000 marchers had set out on the 53-mile, four-day hike with others joining on the way to express their indignation against nuclear weap- on tests. Canon Collins said the size of the procession means authorities "can't write us off as a bunch of cranks any more." @ $ The annual Fishing Kdition of North Dakota Outdoors, ofiieiai pu,blication of the state ~anle and fish department, is on the slands, complete with the 1960 fishing map.
