Bobwhite quail, and plenty of them, were the chief concern of state conservation commission personnel in Ringgold county
recently. Over 600 adult quail were involved in the four-county -- Ringgold, Union, Decatur and Clarke -- stocking operation
directed by Pete CAVENDER, Mount Ayr game area manager. Ringgold county received 200 breeding adult bobwhites.
The quail were supplied by the Iowa State Game Farm at Boone and the birds released were surplus members of the game
farm's breeding stock.
On July 1 a new school organization in Ringgold county became effective. A new and larger Mount Ayr community school district
was formed as the result of an election held February 3, of this year. On that date the citizens of Tingley and Tingley
township went to the polls and signified their intentions to merge with the Mount Ayr Community school district and
thereby created the larger district.
The Rev. E. B. STEWART of Beaver Crossing, NE was honored June 9 as the "Rural Pastor of the Year" at a banquet of the
Nebraska Annual Conference of the Methodist church. Before moving to Nebraska in 1948, the honored pastor served town
and country churchs in Iowa for 20 years, included among which was the Methodist church in Redding.
