Young said today that Governor Scranton's optimism for the future of increased home or residential building "is entirely justified."  ' Young pointed to preliminary kidney danger signals Getting up nights, burning, frequent or scanty How, leg or back pains may warn of functional kidney disorders � "Danger Ahead."

Widmann, Inc., Clearfield. estimates of the 1965 volume of all new construction in Pennsylvania that shows "a substantial 13.9 per cent volu.oe gam over the previous record breaking $1,076,006,000 in 1964. "There were 45,486 new dwelling units authorized during 1965, or 15 per cent and 27 7 per cent more than the number approved in 1964 and 1963, respectively," Secretary Young added. Governor Scranton told a convention of home builders here last week that "for a number of years the market for new housing in Pennsylvania has been soft," but that under improved conditions since 1962, the industry "can only flourish and expand." "The $514,549,000 12-month preliminary estimate of authorized new residential building significantly surpassed'the 1964 all-time high of $425,810,000 by 20.8 per cent and the $418,876,000 of 1963 by 22.8 per cent," Scranton said. Last year's new all-time high of $1,225,310,000 in new construc-tior was authorized by 950 Pennsylvania permit-issuing municipalities encompassing about 80 per cent of the state's total population, Secretary Young said. Secretary Young said that December's new reside ntial building volume of $41,253,000 was down 4.1 per cent from November, "but 11.1 per cent above December a year ago, and 123 per cent above December of two years ago." Between November and December 1965 a decline of $8.6 million in single home construction, in addition to small volume decreases in double home and public-owned dwelling buildings, outbalanced by $1.7 million to $7.0 million upsurge in apartment construction. In the over-all volume of au- thorized building permit operations in December the $98,929,-000 estimated costs were up 6.3 per cent from November, 35.6 per cent from December 1964 and 112.4 per cent from December 1963. In non-residential construction the 196$ preliminary estimate of $574,584,000 volume was 16.2 per cent ahead of the $494,304,0011 previous record-breaking valuation in 1964 and 30.4 per cent above the 1963 totals. "For the third consecutive year since 1945," said Young, "the total valuation of new nonresidential construct ion approved in 1965 exceeded that of new residential building. This is industry providing reasons for increased residential building," he said. Secretary Young reported "the December volume of $49,366,000 in newly authorized non-residential construction increases of 22.2 per cent over November, Gives Auto to State LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Gene Austin of Greenwood gave his car to the state. Austin appeared Monday at a State Board of Equalization meeting, told the board taxes on the car were too high, then tossed his auto title on the desk. When Secretary of State Frank Marsh said the state couldn't accept the car, Austin replied: "I'm going to abandon it on a state lot, yank the plates off and leave it whether you want it or not. You're stuck." , The car is a used 1961 taxicab which Austin said he bought last year for $100. This year, he said, his county assessor valued it at $180 with taxes of $18. 82.4 per cent over December 1964, and 132.9 per cent over December 1963. Feed Groin Program Similar to 1965 Plan Farmers in Clearfield County who plan to take part in the 1966 feed ' grain program will find that signup procedure and general program requirements this year are similar to those followed for last year's feed grain program, according to James H. Bonsall, chairman of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee. For example, the first -step in taking part in the program is to fill out an intention-to-participate form and leave it with the ASCS county office. This can be done at any time during the signup period, which runs from Jan. 31 through April 1. After a producer has signed up, he is responsible for: (1) diverting acreage from corn, grain sorghum, and-or barley to the extent he has agreed upon; (2) designating the acreage of land to be diverted and establishing approved conservation use on that land; (3) maintaining the conserving base acreage on his farm; and (4) not exceeding the feed grain base on any other farm in which he has an interest, Mr. Bonsall explained. Farmers who request it will be eligible to receive 50 per cent of any diversion payment they may expect to earn under the 1966 program at the time they sign up. Farmers who request it may receive this payment at the time they sign up for the program. always appreciated... Your Headquarters for Fine Candies! COWDRICK'S GIGANTIC SAVINGS MANY ITEMS BELOW COST!
