National School Lunch Week di- rects attention to the importance of school lunch programs at a national level. The Food Distri- bution Division of the United States Department of Agricul- ture's Agricultural Marketing Service established the h i g h standards maintained by every school receiving school lunch as- sistance. State educational agencies are responsible for administering the program, while direct manage- ment of the lunchrooms is assum- ed by local school systems. In each participating school t h e lunch program is operated on a nonprofit basis, with lunches plan- ned according to a basic pattern including a protein-rich f o o d, fruits or vegetables, bread, but- ter, and milk. A close ally of the school lunch operation is the special m i 1 k program, designed to encourage children to drink extra milk, oth. er than the half-pint served at lunch. ,Children in this area pay three cents a half-pint for milk at school, with federal funds pay. ing the rest. In addition to the 2.6 billion half-pints of milk served last year in school lunches, 2.8 billion half- pints of extra milk were served, accounting for a total of m o r e than ive percent of the fluid milk moving from dairy farms to U.S. consumers. Phone Bills May Be Paid At Monroe Bank In-person payments of t e 1 e- phone bills may be made at the Monroe branch of the Seattle-First National Bank beginning Tuesday, October 15. Appointment of the bank as West Coast Telephone's n e w payment agency in Monroe, re- placing O.K. Sundries & Foun- tain, was announced by t e 1 e phone Division Manager D o n Hofstrand. Established payment agencies at Park Place Grocery, Rt. 1, and Tri-Valley Pharmacy in the Monroe Shopping Center will continue to receive telephone payments, Hofstrand .added. The division manager empha- sized that payment agents are re- sponsible only for collection of telephone payments and cannot adjust charges appearing on one's statement, nor are they equipped to handle other business pertain. ing to telephone srvice. Matters other than payment of telephone bills should be referred to the West Coast Telephone com- mercial records office in Ever- ett. Telephone customers m a y contact the records office, Hot- strand said, by dialing 181.

MONTH FACT: Johnny Francis buying a new putter. By Steve Hansen Heal Football Coach This Friday we open our league season at Stanwood. The Spar- tans finally got into the win col- umn as they dumped the C o n- crete Lions last week. Stanwood, with All-League fullback, George Lindell will pose a big hurdle in the Bearcat cause. In the first four games this season Lindell has averaged better than f i v e yards per carry. They also have a fine passing game lead by senior quarterback Barry Hammer and sophomore quarterback S t e v e Broz. It could be the biggest test of the Monroe defensive unit. Lake Stevens must be rated as the team to beat in the Cascade League. With a veteran backfi'eld League. With a veteran backfield returning from last years league championship team they will be a threat to any opponent. Against the Langley Falcons last week they romped to an early 19-0 lead and then hung on to win 19-12. Jim Porter, the Langley full- back is one of the hardest run- ning backs to hit the turfs of the Cascade League. At 190 pounds he is very quick. He is also av- eraging better than five yards per carry for the season. Rick Laizure has been cleared to continue in football competi- tion. The junior halfback w h o was kicked in the head early in the second quarter against Lyn- den will be ready for action this week against Stanwood. E v e r y- one was very happy to learn that his injury was not serious. As coach of the Bearcats', I was very happy to see that we were rated as the third best team in the state. However, I also have to admit that I was pleased to see who the two top teams were: Castle Rock, rated number one, is the high school from which I graduated. Tumwater, rated num- ber two (beaten last week 25-6 by Shelton) is coached by my high school football coach. Being rated in the state poll is indeed an honor, and the kids have certainly earned the rank- ing. However, it certainly gives the other schools something to shoot for. With all of the other schools pointing for you, you real- ly have to be ready when game time rolls around. When t h a t whistle blows both teams start even and it is not until 48 play- ing minutes later that the r e a l lrulh is known. 4 4f Ac c  Three fellows who deserve a pat on the back are the three managers. They are the ones who keep everything in top shape. On game day, if we play at home, they have the job of getting the field lined, yard markers put up and all of these nice things. They are senior Bob Hagel, junior Ron Fleming, and sophomore Butch Norling. Fire Closure Lifted In concurrence with a state- wide decision to lift all fire clos- ures, fire closures on the Snoqual- mie National Forest were lifted at midnight October 4, it was an- nounced by .L.O. Barrett, Forest Supervisor. Pointing out that "eradication" means "removing by the roots," Dr. James E. Perkins, managing director of the National Tubercu- losis Association, maintains that banishing a disease wholly or al- most entirely from a given coun- try doesn't fulfill that definition. Speaking before a meeting of sci- ence writers recently, he endors- ed the view that "no communi- cable disease could be considered to be eradicated until it is eradi- cated from the entire world."
