Second about million a year in lost revenue. Could Reinstate In passing the repeal bill, many legislators in both parties observed that if the state's farm economy should drop in the next year it might be necessary lo reinstate the tax or to raise it on other items. Gannon, who raises soybeans, corn and cattle on the 550 acres he farms with the help of a hired hand while he campaigns said he suffered some loss as a result of the rainy season. Gannon took five days out of his campaign to plant corn.

She said her daughter ob- tained the form only after a telephone call to the city recrea- lion commission. She also said information sheets distributed at local schools referred only to boys, with no mention of girls. Opens Ranks Mark Doolin, rights commis- staff member, said the league decided to open its ranks to girls this year, on its own ini- tiative, and is the first league in the state to do so. He said the information sheets were printed before the league decided to admit girls. Since then, he said, league represent- atives have made an effort to inform the public thai are eligible.

He added that, the deadline for registration has been ex- tended. Ralph Coly, commission exec- utive secretary, suggested the commission ciingralulalc the league "for its foresight in being the first in the stale lo allow girls lo compete." Acting Chairman Ruth Rogers agreed, adding. "II was a com- munication.'; problem." In another matter, Doolin was authorized to accompany a complainant to small claims court. The woman, who is white, said she rented an apartment but was told she would have to leave when the landlady discov- ered the woman's two-year-old child is black. She refused to leave, and said the landlady plans to go to court to force eviction. Doolin said the landlady claims she objects to the pres- ence of a child, not the pres- ence of a black child. He said the complainant claims witnesses heard her tell the landlady, prior to renting the apartment, that she had a small child. A similar apartment across the hall is occupied by a woman and small child, he said.
