Klonglan is holding the gaudy cock bird. The oth- er is a hen. Release Reeves Pheasant In Nearby State Forest The highly-publicized. Reeves pheasant has been released b> the Iowa State Conservation Com- mission m the Cedar Creek unit of Stephens State Forest, north- east of Chariton The cocks and 12 the remainder of the commission's original supply of brood stock. Over 100 young birds remain in captivity to furnish future slock. Tne birds were released main- ly to determine if they could sur- vive through the remainder of the winter in the wild. The Reeves is a timber phea- sant from southeast Asia. It prefers wooded areas, which makes it desirable for southern Iowa's timbered river valleys and pastures. The ringneek pheasant bird which is hunted in open land. Slightly larger" than the ring- neck, the Reeves is a gaudy combination of copper, deep maroon, black and tan. The cocks are hard to miss v.-ith their white head. Lore Ranger mask, and spectacular tail reaching a length of four to five feet. The unique tail acts as a rudder when the bird flies through the trees- Being one of the strongest fliers in the pheasant family, the Reeves could offer an extremely fine target m timbered areas. As yet. however, the Reeves is not legally hunted anywhere in the United States, although other states are ako experimenting with the bird. The commission considers its potential outstanding from the hunter's viewpoint, but says it will take years to determine if the birds can take hold in the state. '-IJUle is known of the bird's and could require many years of study before we could feel certain of success or the commission state- ment said. The commission pointed out that the ringneek pheasant was stocked in Iowa around the turn of the century, but there was no open season until "Estab- lishing a new species is often nothing more than repeated fail- ures, or on some occasions spec- tacular the commission said. Sixty-five marriages were per- formed in Monroe county during 1962. records in the office of the clerk of court show. At the same time, district court judges here were granting 12 di- vorces. The clerk's office recorded 135 births during the year. A total of 124 certificates of death were completed in the county, and the clerk has received certificates of death of 31 other Monroe county residents who died outside the county. These certificates for the last half of December have not yet been received. Three adoptions were allowed during the year- Changes in marriage license laws apparently have been effec- tive in halting quick marriages in Iowa of couples from outside the state. Before the law was chang- ed, at the middle of 1961. a mar riage could be performed as quickly as the couple could pur- chase its license and find a miii ister or justice of the peace. The new law requires a three-day period- During 1962. only one of the 65 marriages performed was of a couple living outside the state, and in that case the groom was a of" Monroe county. Eight otJher marriages were of one per- son living in Iowa and one living outside Iowa Only 10 of the 130 persons married here were non- residents.

Area School Districts Could Provide Numerous Services Organization of the stale into 16 area school districts, as out lined by the State Department of Public Instruction to members of the Iowa Legislature, could result in numerous additional educational services being abie to students of Ihe stale The larger school units could also assist local districts, which would be retained under the sug- gested change, with a variety of administrative services The educational ind trative services which could be furnished by the area district are only a part of the function suggested for them. They could also provide the framework for the organization of community colleges which could serve larger areas than are served by ihe ex- isting community colleges. Under the plan drawn up for consideration of the legislature. Monroe county (except the 200 acres of land ir. the Russell d's- tnct) would be in district XV. This district is generally Mah- aska, Keokuk. Washington. Jef- ferson, Wapello. Monroe. Ap- pahoose. and Van Curcn counties. In -June. 1961. the Association of County Superintendents re quested the Stale Board of Pub- lic Instruction to establish a committee to study and draw boundaries for intermediate dis- tncts. to the educational and administrative services men- tioned earlier. The Department of Public Instruction had also re- ceiied a directive of House Re- solution 6 requesting thai a statewide system of public area community colleges bo planned. Smcc both proposals required the of the stale into tax districts, and the election of con- trolling boards and appointment of an administrative officer, con- sideration was given to organiz ing both functions with the same boundaries. Although considera- tion was also given to using dif- ferent boundaries for the two functions, it was decided to re- commend the establishment of one set of area districts to fulfill both functions. An educational export with ex- tensive experience in Midwestern stales. Stephen J. Knezcvich. stales. an'd func lionally. the intermediate unit lies between the state on the one hand and the local district on the other. It is an arm of the stale bul at the same time oc- cupies territory 'hat encompas- ses manv local school districts as well.'' The intermediate units Knezevich .says, can "provide specialized services at a reason- able cost per pupil that the local unit district could not provide because there were either too few- pupils or the cost would been prohibitive." The report to the legislature does not specifically outline ser- vices which the intermediate dis- tricts would provide. "These have to be determined by local dis- trict desires, cooperation, ana the report states. Il does provide information which can be used to determine the population base needed to pro- vide certain programs. High school enrollment in area XV (grades 912) is While- total school enrollment is not included for each district, the total enrollment for district XV v.ould probably be about 30.000.
