Hyde is a one-man band and also is fair emcee. Allen: Re-election Try Out for Kirkwood Board Morris Allen, a member of the Kirkwood Community college board of directors for eight years, will not seek re-election in September’s school board election. Allen, a Marion attorney, told The Gazette he had no particular reason for not running, but did believe it is time for a change. “I’ve served since the initial formation of the board, in excess of eight years. It’s been an extremely enjoyable situation. But it seems to me from time to time, that things bend it by a change,” Allen said. Two Changes Allen noted that there have only been two changes in the make-up of the board since its beginning— Wayne Newton of Luzerne was elected last fall, and the Rev. Roy Wingate of Iowa City was appointed to the board five years ago. With the same group of people. Allen said, “it's easy to just perpetuate yourself, to perpetuate a program because it is there. One of the challenges ahead of Kirkwood is to see that it does not do that." Allen represents director district 7 on the Kirkwood board of directors. It is made up of Al-, bumett and Linn-Mar Independent school districts, the Marion Independent .school district, and Cedar Rapids precincts 32, 33, 38. 39, and 41. Other Seats Other seats open on the Kirkwood board are those now' held by the Rev. Roy Wingate of Iowa City and Robert Davidson of Mechanicsville. Wingate represents director district 3, which includes Iowa City precincts, I. 2. 3. 5, and 6. Davidson represents director district I, which consists of the community school districts of Clarence, Lincoln, Lisbon. Midland, Olin. Solon. Tipton, and West Branch: Lowden and Oxford Junction consolidated school districts, and Iowa City precincts 7 and 8. Candidates must reside within the district for which they wish to run. Neither Wingate nor Davidson has made a formal announcement of their election plans. Filing Times Nomination papers for the three-year terms are available Survey Reports Food Bill Drop NEW YORK (AR) - Budgetconscious .shoppers got a break in June as the family grocery bill declined slightly, an Associated Press marketbasket survey shows.

Suspected Spy Vessel Is Sunk SEOUL (AP) — A navy patrol boat exchanged fire with a vessel believed to he a North Korean spy boat Tuesday night and sank, it off the southeast coast of the Korean peninsula. The defense ministry said one South Korean was killed and three were wounded, but it made no report of the casualties on the sunken boat. Vacationers who are looking for a foreign holiday or who have wanted to visit Spain bul couldn’t afford it should try Mexico this summer. That’s the suggestion from Vie Hyde, the one-man band who is doubling in brass as lea lured performer and emcee at the All-Iowa fair. Hyde came to the fair directly from a three week tour of Mexico as guest ar fist with “La Banda de la Ainis-tad” - “Band of Friendship.” , It was a group of American student musicians who played symphony concert halls, open park concerts and parades. Replica of Spain Hyde literally has taken his act around the world, including several tours of Spain. “I found Mexico a replica of Spain, both in customs of the people and in geographic nature,” Hyde said. “Mountains Ford Tells Appointee To Stand Firm in Post WASHINGTON (AP) - “You have to take the bitter with the sweet.” Vice-president Ford admonished as he swore in John Eger as deputy director of the White House Office of Telecommunications Policy. Administering the oath Monday, Ford said both he and OTP have had some problems. But he advised Eger: “If you think you're right, stand firm. You'll find it s better than talking out of both sides of your mouth ” are always in evidence and the outlying villages are quaint, just as they were hundreds of years ago.” Hyde, like many other Amen cans, had confined his previous visits to Mexico to the border towns and fie admitted he “was not too impressed.” However, the more thorough introduction to the country Hyde said, has made it a “must” for him to return and “further enjoy a most hospitable people, see their fine ancient and modern arts. enjoy their music and devour their gourmet food.” The entertainer had four basic tips for vacationers heading for Mexico I. Travel to Mexico City via one route and come home another. The first road built from Texas to Mexico City is the “Pan American highway. “The old highway provides mountain scenery and between the mountains ara1 plots of farm land, farmed with oxen, and some land cultivated on steep mountain sides.” Hyde said “A more recent, fast highway, No. 57, by-passes the mountains somewhat.” 2. Visit the town of Puerto Vallarta, west of Mexico City on the Pacific ocean. “Hotels and food are reasonable The sun there gives a tan quickly. The sandy beach has little grass-roofed umbrella-type shade spots and the night clubs on the beach are huge grass tepee edifices,” Hyde explained. 3. Visit the markets and every city has a big market. “But don't pay the asking price.” Hyde said. “Half the fun is wheeling until you think you have a bargain,” Hyde said. 4. Don’t worry about Mexican bandits. “That is totally a thing of the past,” Hyde said, “but the legend persists, like the legend of gangsters in Chicago and wild Indians in Cheyenne.” i •'    ’    ■    *'    .c    I*,    $    -    fc    *    >    x,    "V    ^ Kiln ^— ions 9TJ5T— Semi-Annual Sale!
