He showed a heavy Hereford steer to win the grand champion- ship trophy and ribbon in the steer class and a senior heifer calf to win the grand championship of the heifer class.

The boys are sons of Peanut Butter Cookies Pack a Wallop There's more than one reason for making a batch of peanut butter cookies. A big first is that nearly everyone -- and especially kids -- like them. But just as important, and often more so to mothers concerned about the good health of their children, is the fact that peanut butter cookies pack a wallop in nutritional goodness. Peanut butter ranks as one of the most nutritious foods that Americans eat. It is rich in needed protein, a good source of polyunsaturates, as well as B vitamins, especially niacin. In the Skippy peanut butter recipe here oats and nuts add to the protein value.

Pulaski was admitted to the Abraham Lincoln Me- morial Hospital Monday. Miss Melody Naylor was a surgical patient in Abra- ham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.

Mrs. kmel Beidler is now in Room 153 at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, in Lincoln. Ill. When you're six years old, the world an be a wonderful place - - if you can see it. Tommy couldn't. He lived in a world of blurred images. School is tough e- nough when you're six. But it's even worse when your friends are learning to read, and you can't keep up. To Tommy, letters were merely blurs; so were base- balls and faces. Because Tommy's father had long been out of work, #asses were simply out of the question - - until this year. The boy's #asses were paid for by a volunteer organization hundreds of miles away, called New Eyes for the Needy, Inc., of Short Hills, New Jersey. New Eyes, as it is famil- iarly known, has earned the reputation of being one of the most effective sight- saving charities in the world. It has helped many .TIMES-NEWS (Mt. Pulaski, Ill.) tTHURSDAY, AUG. 12, 1971-5 thousands of needy peovle obtain #asses- - here and abroad - - and it has never asked for a cent in dona- tions. Since its inception, al most 40 years ago, New Eyes has asked only for used eyeglasses and pre- cious metal articles such as old watches, jewelry (real, costume and antique), good or damaged silver and den- tures. The eyeglasses and glit- tering clutter are sent to New Eyes for title leedv, Inc., Sh0rt Hills, New Jer- sey 07078. Thousands of packages from all over the United States arrive in the neat stucco headquarters every year. There, volun- teers, mostly housewives, sort out the glasses, sep- arating those in plastic frames from those in metal frames. Many of the 250 workers have learned to operate complex optical grading and testing equipment. They help fill specific or- ders from missions and hospitals in foreign coun- tries where plastic framed glasses and sunglasses are sent. The metal, framed glasses have thetr uses, too. Through refining, they yield precious metals that are sold, along with the jewelry, to finance New Eyes funds in over 100 hospitals and health agen- civs throughout the United States. The money in these funds buys glasses for people who have nowhere else to turn. In addition to these funds, arrangements have also been made in 48 states through health and welfare agencies whereby New Eyes purchases glasses for carefLdly screened persons, to whom no other private or public funds are avail- able. Last year 8,000 people were helped under this pro- gram. Tommy was one of them. But, as public respome has grown throughout the years, so has the volume of requests. Therefore, New Eyes needs more discarded jewelry and eyeglasses to do its job. As one New Eyes vollanteer put it "The wonderful thing about New Eyes is that we can ask people to send us things they no lortger need".' And these gifts can bring vison to a little boy, like Tommy.

Fall, winter and spring, each bill is an easy-to-pay amount for nine months of the year. And, there's no extra charge. Thousands of CILCO-served families have found the Level Payment Plan to be an automatic way of helping balance their budgets. You can, too! Here's how the Level Payment Plan works: CILCO studies your service bills from September 1970 to June 1971, then determines an average monthly bill for that period. This amount is rounded to the nearest dollar and billed to you every month (except June, July and August). The June bill adjusts the difference between the estimated average bill and the actual usage during the preceding nine-month heating season. Call your local CILCO office soon to start your Level Payment Plan this September. Or fill out the return card you will receive with your service bill.

The account had bruit up a debit of 72 over a nine month period. rhe actual math's usage was $19.11, so a payment of $19.83 balanced the acommt. 00Nrammt0000
