BILLINGS COUNI~ PIONEER KENNEDY EXPERTS--Bill, 8, and Ashby Cleveland, II, find the election year is just right for earning spending money, es- pecially when you live next door to a Presidential nomi- nee. For ten cents, the young stets will point out the sum- mer home of Sen. John F. Kennedy in Hyannisport, Mass give you statistics on his boat or show you his pet. Oil and Gas Group Meets August 15-16 The ergnth annual meeting of the North Dakota Oil and Gas Assn. will be held Aug. 15 and 16 in Bismarck, according to William R. Pearce, president. Speakers will include John O. Winger, vice president in the petro- leum department of the Chase-Man- hattan Bank, New York City, whose address will be on "The Petroleum Outlook for the 1960s". Dr. Leonard W. Larson of Bis- marck, president-elect of the Ameri- can Medical Assn will speak at the annual smorgasbord Tuesday Aug. 16 on the subject, "Politics-- Everybody's Business". Winger lived in Tolna, N. D. at one time when his father was a bulk oil distributor. He was graduated from the Uni- versity of North Dakota in 1941 with a bachelor of science degree in commerce and entered the U. S. navy the same year, serving in Hawaii and later on a Naval trans- port in European waters during World War II. In 1946, after leaving the service, Winger joined the staff of Cities Service Oil Co. in New York as a petroleum economist. He entered the Chase organiza- tion in 1950, was appointed petrol- eum economist in 1956 and was elected vice president in 19{}9. 'FI" Slate Agencms Receive 'Funds The North Dakota emergency commission has approved expendi- ture of nearly $80.000 from the state contingency fund for use by six de- 13artments on an emergency basis. The largest amount. $26,925 ,was made available to the .state bank examiner to carry out provisions of the small loan act, the referred measure approved by voters in the June 28th primary election . Second on the list was $26,000 giv- en to the state board of administra- tion for its new building and special projects fund. The funds are to be used in the remodeling of a building at the State Training school in Mandan. Bids on the project exceed- ed the $50,000 appropriated amount. A special enlarged committee was necessary under law to approve the two amounts over $10.000. The reg- ular committee is made up of Gay. John E. Davis. Secy. of State Ben Meier, and Math Dahl, commissioner of agriculture and labor. The enlarged board includes State Sen. P. L. Foss, Valley City, chair- mar, of the Senate Appropriations c am m it t e e. and Rep. Richard Thompson, Underwood. chairman of the House Appropriations com- mittee. Other emergency expenditures ap- proved by the commission were: $9,500 to the governor's special study committee on labor laws for use on committee expenses. $6,000 to the board of administra- tion for landscaping of the gover- nor's mansion. $3,000 of a $4,000 request to the state civil defense organization to be used for travel expenses. $500 to the governor's office for use in the miscellaneous fund. ---[[]--.

For others, it will repose in a' new home with a new father and mother. There are few orphans among them--actually only one-half of one percent are true orphans. They are the products of their parents' failure to be good parents. What caused the family to col- lapse? It could be economic or, illness of the parents, emotional neglect, failure to educate, failure to provide, low moral standard in the home. drunkenness, brutality, divorce, abandonment. Whatever the reasons, the child- ren are not denied their right to be helped. This is because of the close teamwork between public and private welfare, child protective 6ervices and the courts. Take one agency for example - the Children's Village, Fargo. It's North Dakota's oldest such service, once known as the North Dakota Child- ren's Home Society. In 1959. the non-sectarian child- care and child placing agency pro- vided service9 for 211 individual kids. It devised 309 separate serv- ices for the 211--in some cases providing two types of service dur- ing the year, such as foster home care followed by adoptive place- ment. The agency placed 63 children in 1959--nine Catholics, 13 Lutherans and 41 other Protestants. Some of the 63 were illigitimate infants, with a problem of nameless- ness solved spectacularly through quick adoption. Others we r e teenagers, not anxmus to change their names by adoption but with a terrible need to be wanted. In one way or another, all of them said. "Won't you help us?" and had their entreaties answered. The Village's staggering accomp- lishment in 1969 is matched by the other child-care agencies. It is swift. skilled, hard-hitting social work, combatting the evils that cause dam- age to children, and helping to heal those already hurt by circumstances beyond the child's control. Not all the children in need are rescued. Some of them never come to society's attention. But those who do get swift help---thanks to gen- erous understanding citizens.

Wages today are almost 100 per cent above the 1945 ones. Minnesota will get $40,822,031 in interstate funds; $7.808,474 for pri- mary roads; $5,333,100 for secondary, or feeder ro~ds, and $2,812,332 for urban highways. Comparable figures for South Da- kota are: $9,182,250; $3.930,431; $3,- 068,975, and $335,448. North Dakot,~ Salads Abound It's Summer It's summertime and salad time. The two go hand-in-hand.
