Liens Club Buys Heifer The Mt. Pulaski Lions Club recently purchased a Registered Shorthorn heifer from the W. H. Van Meter farm at Elkhart. The heifer will be given to a 4-H boy or girl who applies through their local 4-H leader. The applica- tion blanks will be made available to them soon. This is a continuation of the Beef heifer pro- gram started last year when a Hereford heifer was given to Kent Brooker and an Angus heifer was given to Bill Maske to initiate the program. The Shorthorn heifer has prominent Leveldale breeding on both sides of the pedigree which de- notes its origin to the internationally known Mothers Bros. farms of Mason City, Illinois. The heifer is to be the property of the 4-H boy or girl who will return the first offspring to the Mt. Pulaski Lions Club to per- petuate the program for others to have beef heifers in the coming years. SCHOOL BONI) REFERENOUM TO BE VOTED ON SATURDAY DENTAL EgOGRAM TOBE AT GRADE SCHOOL The Mt. Pulaski Com- munity Consolidated Grade School District, in cooperation with the Illi- nois Department of Public Health, will hold a free "tooth fluoride treat- ment" program for chil- dren in Grades three through eight. The program is general- ly not recommended for children under third grade. Personnel from the Illi- nois Department of Public Health and the school nurse, Mrs. Alice Lee, will instruct and observe the program to be held in the new school cafeteria of the Mt. Pulaski Grade School beginning at 8:30- a.m. on Monday, Dec. 13 and Tuesday, Dec. 14, 1971. Each child will be in- structed in the proper manner of tooth brushing and will brush fluoride gel on his own teeth under the supervision of a den- tist or a dental hygienist. This treatment is not magic and will not elimi- nate tooth decay entirely. It will decrease tooth decay but is not intended to replace regular home care and regular dental check-ups. For best re- suits, this application should be made annually. No attempt will be made to include a dental examination at the time of the treatment. NOTICE The school pictures of pupils at the Mt. Pulaski Cons. Grade School will be on sale this Thursday and Friday on the stage in the gymnasium during school hours and on Satur- day morning from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. MT. PULASKI TWP.
