Rainfall wa s a little below average with .43 of an inch, although measurable rain fell 7 days. The mean temperature was 62.8 degrees, which is approximately one degree lower than recorded in 1962 and 1963. The low of 36 degrees on the 3ist brought a new low for this period, while the high shot to 97 degrees on the 22nd. There were G days 90 degrees or above, and the average maxJnmm was 77.8 degrees.

C. Wayne Eshelman returned to his teaching duties hepe fm the 1964 Radiation BiologY Sum- mer institute conducted at the University of Washington in Seattle. With his return, Esh- elman will introduce to students not only the latest developments in the field of atomic radia- tion, but also the equipment to measure radioactivRy. The institute, sponsored jointly by the National Science Foundation and the Atomic En- ergy Commission s is conducted to familiarize high school and college instructors wRh the lat- est in developments in the field of atomic radiation. Eshel- man said emphasis of the training he received at the in- stitute was that pertaining to the affect of radiation on and the use of radiation in biolog- ical systems. Eshelman said the instRute consisted of seven weeks of In- struction and study at the Fish- erles Center on the UnlversRy of Washington campus, plus a week of visRatlon at the Atomic Energy Commission's Hanford operation near Richiand, Wash. Upon completion of the in- stitute course, Eshelman was among participants to receive a kit of instruments s invaluable in the teaching of various as- pects of radiation biologY. The Sheridan High instructor intends to incorporate the in- struments with the knowledge and techniques he gained at the institute into the teaching of some aspects of general blol- ogy at the sophomore level and in the teaching of advanced biology at the senior level He pointed out radioactive materials will be used in the instruction, but he also em- phasized that the quantities with which students will be working in the classes are not at II harmful when simple and prop- er precautions are taken. Ma- jor use of the equipment will be to show students how radio- active isotopes can be used to discover new information about biological systems. Included in the items of equip- ment are a detector and a scal- er, as well as various other pieces used in connection with the measurement of radioactiv- ity. Eshelman said the de- tector, operated by the ioniza- tion of gasses through radio- activity, sends electrical Im- pulses to the scaler, which keeps an accurate record of radiations per minute. This equipment can be used to de- termine the quantity of radio- activity in material. The biology instructor sald the instruments are loaned to RADIATION BIOLOGY instruction at Sheridan High school will be given this year by C.

Balloting 25 to 1 in favor of sending their seventhand eighth grade students to Chapman school this year solved the problem of the Buell districtSs one teacher handling their in- struction. Only about four stu- dents are involved, school of- ficials have reported. The seventh and eighth grad- ers will attend the local grade school on a transportation and tuition basis. High school stu- dents from Buell attend Sher- idan High school on the same basis. Planning is undel:way to hold another election later this fall in the Buell district. In this election voters would be asked to cast their ballots on a pro- posal to consolidate with the Dallas school district. A pe- tition to hold an election on this question has met with a remonstrance petRion filed by voters who favor consolidation with the Sheridan School dis- trict or who are in favor of maintaining the Buell dis- trict's own school operation. Up to this year, grade school students in grades one through eight have been taught by one instructor In the Buell school.

(Sun Photo 300) Commerce Board of Directors meeting Monday noon were some of the aspects of finding area residents to accept coun- cil positions. It was pointed out that because of some ac- tions taken by the council bus- inessmen on the council are the targets for economic reprisal from segments of the com- munity who opposed a partic- ular council move. Former council members have discussed the feeling of accomplishment and the great- ly increased knowledge of city government and of the opera- tion of the city's departments gained from their terms on the conncil. It was proposed at the cham- ber board session that mem- bers begin thinking of local residents who might be ap- proached with the idea of fil- ing for council posts. County Assessor To Speak At Sept. 14 Chamber Meet Members of the Sheridan Chamber of Commerce will hear YamhlU County Assessor Hew Kraft speak at a delayed regular meeting Monday noon, Sept. 14. Chamber President Art He- bert said the program meeting will be held the second Monday of the month because of the con- flict with the Labor Day hol- iday next Monday, the regular meeting date. In his talk and in answers to questions that will be asked from the membership, Kraft is expected to outline reasons for the increase in Shertdan's proposed millage rate for the coming year. Kraft, a long-time assis- tant in the assessor's office, was appointed to the top post earlier this year after the sud- Sheridan Man GetsC0mmissi0n In Air Force SAN ANTONIO, TEX.-- Ste- phen A. Beardslee, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas R. Beardslee of Evans Road in Sheridan, has been commissioned a second lieutenant in the U. S. Air Force upon graduation from Officer Training School (OTS) at Lackland AFB, Tex. Lieutenant Beardslee, selec- ted for ors through competi- tive examination, is belng as- signed to an Air Training Com- mand unit at Keesler AFB, Miss., for training as a com- munications officer. A graduate of Sheridan High School, he received a B. S. degree from the University of Oregon and is a member of Delta Upsilon. Lt. Beardslee was graduated from Sheridan High school with the class of 1958. den death of Assessor Fred Muhs. The new assessor, when he released probable millage fig- ures for the county a few weeks ago, pointed out a big reason for the jump in this community's millage rate. Cit- ing exemptions allowed senior citizens, veterans and veterans' widows, Kraft said these have removed several thousand dol- lars in assessed valuation from the tax rolls. At the chamber board of di- rectors meeting Aug. 28, He- bert read a letter he had writ- ten to Fire chief Cecil A. Har- rison. In the letter , it was proposed that the chamber don*- ate $100 toward purchase of heavy wire to be permanerT is;Lalled along cat> tree=s by the volunteer fire department. The strands would be used to hang Phil Sheridan Days and Christ mas decorations every year. The board earlier had determined these strands would greatly facilitate putting up and taking down the decora- tions for firemen. Also announced by Hebert were proposed plans to get underway on the organiza- tion of a Toastmaster's club in Sheridan. Earlier this year several chamber members ex- pressed interest tn such a group. If the interest still re- mains, Hebert said, the club will be organized.
