Grant Given Mf. Mercy For Seminar Mt. Mercy college has received a grant from the Iowa Board of Public Programs In the Humanities (IBPPH) as the sponsor of a community-college project on ethnic awareness in Cedar Rapids. A grant of $3,069 was allocated for the development of a program consistent with the statewide IBPPH theme of “Issues in Education in Iowa Today”. The Cedar Rapids project entitled “Threads in the Cedar Rapids Tapestry—A Seminar in Ethnic Awareness”, will examine the values and beliefs in human relations, especially in the local schools. “The purpose of the seminar,” explained Janice Richie, assistant professor of English at Mt. Mercy and codirector of the project, “is to get people to talk to each other and from there to develop an appreciation of the cultural heritage of Cedar Rapids.” Participants in the seminar will come from all sectors of the community — civic, educa-• tional, economic and private. The seminar will be held on the Mt. Mercy campus June 3-6. The program is being planned by the ethnic awareness committee, comprised of community and college representatives.

Old Oil Tank Has "Antiques” Ne* York Times Service PUTNAM, Texas - It is not unusual in these vast isolated expanses of west Texas to come upon an interstate highway exit that leads to a dirt road. Nor is it unusual for that dirt road to lead to three giant oil storage tanks. But it is somewhat unusual to discover that the middle oil tank — the giant rusting one with the 57,000-barrel capacity — is really a store for antiques of sorts. “I don’t know, it doesn’t seem strange to me,” said Ruel W. Reynolds, the proprietor of what he bills as “the world’s only flea market in an old oil tank." Which just might be true! Strewn about inside the cavernous container, safe from the wild weather that rages hereabouts, are thousands of items — old saddles, juke boxes, nails, cow skulls, trunks, hub caps and broken parasols that some people call antiques and others call junque. $2.98 Whistles JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) — Sjgn of the inflationary times in a music shop window: “Penny whistles— $2.98.” Take Months to Pay Use Smulekoff’s Budget Account Your transaction Is a private, confidential one at Smule-feoff s.
