BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Dakotas Electric Cooperative, Inc. will hold its annual meet- ing Nov. 21. Rose said registration will be held in the Patterson Hotel dur- ing the morning with sessions slated for the afternoon. About 130 board members of the 14 distribution members serv- ed by Dakotas Electric from North and South Dakota are ex- pected to attend the meeting. Dakotas Electric was first or- ganized in 1948, but last year was the first time the organi- zation employed a full-time man- ager. The 14 cooperative members were 30,000 rural customers in south-western North Dakota and north-western South Dakota, Rose said: Directors include Telford And- erson, warlord City, president; Joe V. Rkl]~ Dickinson, vice president; Donald Naughton, Blunt, S. D secretary-treasurer, and directors Sam Merkel, SeN by, S. D.; Theodore Lang, Ster- ling; Theodore Martel, Ipswich, S. D.; Elmer Jorgenson, Bison, S. D.; Clarence Welander, Edg- eley; Herbert Weber Linton; Otto Schneider, Timber Lake, S. D.; John Toman, Jr Flasher; Arn- old Dannert, Aberdeen, S. D.; Fred Miller, Hazen, and J. O. Jacobs, New England. One of the problems facing Dakota Electric, and sure to be a topic of conversation at the Nov. 21 meeting, is that of power MDU toSell New Issue of Preferred Stock Montana-Dakota Utilities Co. of Minneapolis this week an- nounced plans to sell $5,000,000 in preferred stock The company has called a special meeting of its stockhold- ers for Dec. 13 to vote on a proposal to increase the number of authorized shares of preferr- ed stock to 300,000 from the present 150,000. Of this amount the company plans to sell 50,000 shares for a total of $5,000,000 late this year or early next year. The funds will be used to retire a like amount outstanding in short term bank loans used to finance the company's con- struction program. supply to serve the expanding co- operatives. At the present time Dakotas Electric has had a load factor of 42,000 kilowatts and an antici- pated load of 47,000 kilowatts, or a 15 per cent load growth for the one year. Dakota Electric gets porter from the Bureau of Reclamation and has a contract for 8~00 kil- owatts ~rom Montana-Dakota --U--- NDAC STUDY SHOWS GRAIN TRUCKING UP The volume of grain shipped by truck from county elevators to first destinations increased from five per cent in 1956 to seven per cent in 196'/, and jumped to 14 per cent in 1958, ac- cording to a research study by the Agricultural Economics De- partment at NDAC. No single factor was singled out as being responsible for this continued increase in shipping grain by truck. However, the ag- ricultural exemption clause in the Interstate Commerce Act, which exempts truckers of ag- ricultural products from econ- omic regulations, is believed to play a significant role in the advantages motor carriers have over railroads. Another factor listed by Fred R. Taylor, agricultural economist, and David Nelson, graduate ass- istant, is the ability of truckers to reduce rates at will. Truck- ing also gained because of such things as less time in transit and less handling of the commodity. The railroads of North Dakota reduced grain rates to Minneap- olis-St. Paul and Duluth-Super- ior effective in April 1960. This should have a significant effect on the trend toward shipping grain by truck, the economists believe. The report, based on data ob- tained from a mail survey of all known elevator firms in North Dakota, shows about 91 per cent of the trucked grain was shipped to out-of-state destinations. A- bout 50 per cent of this went to Minneapolis-St. Paul and 26 per cent went to Duluth-Superior Wheat was the major portioz of the out-of-state movement, o about 56 per cent. Oats and Fla: were 17 and 12 per cent, respec - ively. =--[~-- Beef Council The company said its policy is to use bank credit for tern- T to finance con-.ncorporates porary loans struction .but to periodically re- pay such loans with perman- ent financing. MDU provides gas and elec- tric service in large sections of North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana, and to smaller areas of Wyoming and Minnesota. --[3-- CPAs Meet In Willislon Meeing in Minot last week. members of the North Dakota Society of Certified Public Ac- countants elected Roland Suess of Williston to succeed Dale Youngern of Grand Forks as head of the organization. Other officers are Lloyd E. Orser of Bismarck, Vice presi- dent; and R D. Koppenhaver of Grand Forks, re-elected secre- tary-treasurer. Next years meeting will be held in Bismarck. Five changes in North ~ota accountancy laws, including one that would upgrade educational and training requirements for certificate, were reported by the society Seven new CPAs received car- tificates to practice. They are Paul Storsteen, lVrinot; V a n c e Steen, Bismarck; Donald Ford. Grand Forks; Donald Bostrom, Grand Forks; Michael Vinyon, Grandin; Donald Schu~Ite, Grand Forks, and James Lacher, La- Moure. The proposed legislative chang- es were presented for approval by Thomas Clifford, dean of the School of Commerce a.t the Uni- versity of North Dakota. The educational change would extend the present requirement of three years accounting experi- ence to four for those CAP ap- plicants who have not attended school. The present two year ac- countancy schooling requirement would be extended to require graduation from a college or university. The other proposals would in- crease the fees for taking the CPA e~amina~ion, increase the number of times that an appli- cant may be re-examined and permit a person who has passed only one phase of the e~cam to be conditioned for re-examina~ion.-- They also propose to eliminate the time 3-year requir,~ment for the certificate holder from anoth- er state to be admitted to prac- tice in North Dakota. Two proposals affect the state board of accountancy. One would raise the board per diem allow- ance from 10 to $5 and the ex- pense allowance from $5 per day of actual ex~pense incurred. The other would permit fund expend. lure without the president's sig- nature. The North Dakota Beef Coun- cil recently obtained a certifi- cate of incorporation from Sec- retary of State Ben Meier, ac- cording to .Leonard Davis of Kildeer, council president "Thls ~,- a progressive forward step in the cattleman's continu- ed effort to promote his own product and it marks one more milestone in the advancement of the vast potential of one of North Dakota's most important industries " Davis said. all,mr officers in the Council are Cal Foss, Valley City, vice president and Clair Michels, Bis- marck, secretary The North Dakota Beef Coun- cil was originally founded in 1955, with Congressman Don Short as its first president, and had operated as a non-incorpor- ated group to this t~ne. The Beef Council is single in purpose, namely, to "unify al! organized interests of the cattle industry in the state in a coordi- nated effort to increase the sale and consumption of beef and beef products and to promote the sale of North Dakota cattle " Operating funds are derived through the cooperation of the various auction markets through- out the state and producers in allowing a five-cent per head market deduction The following North Dakota or- ganizations will be asked to ap- point special representatives to the Council; North Dakota Stock- men's Assn, North Dakota Live- stock Auction Assn; Grazing Dis- tricts, North Dakota CowBelles, North Dakota Hereford Assn; Aberdeen ARgus Assn; North Da- kota Shorthorn Assn; North Da- kota Farmers Union; North Da- kota Farm Bureau: North Da- kota Bankers Assn; North Da- kota extension service; North Union Stockyards Co. of West Fargo, North Dakota Experiment Dakota Restaurant Assn; PCA, Station.

Poisoning due to nitrates causes sudden death losses when animals eat feed or drink water containing toxic levels of ni- trates. The NDAC diagnostic la- boratories had 47 nitrate poison- ing cases from all parts of North Dakota during the year ending June 30, 1960. The circular out- lines measures for preventing livestock losses from nitrate pois- oning. The circular is I~'o. A347, tiffed '~Nitrate Poisoning". North Da- kota county extension agents have the publication, or it can be obtained from the Agricul- tural Information Department, NDAC, Fargo. [] ANTELOPE BOWH~RS SCORE HIGH SUCCESS North Dakota's bowhunters scored a high success ration dur- ging the archery season on prong- horns last month, announced Tom Klett, game biologist for the game and fish department. Although not all of the bow- hunters have mailed in their re- port cards, early tabulations in- dicate that around 11 5 percent of the bowhunters succeeded in bagging an antelope. Approxi- mately 260 pronghorn bow li- censes were issued, and 30 hunt- era have reported bagging their game. Although North Dakota bow- hunter success on deer or ant- elope has never been below eight per cent, a score of over five per cent is well above the na- tional average. The 11~ per cent success mark would be an ex- cellent one during a deer sea- son, and can be considered very high for antelope hunting. Those hunters who have not yet returned their report cards are urged to do so, even if they did bag an antelope.
