The winning bird for the Davis Loft 15FWB208 flew the t01 miles averaging 56 and three tenths miles per hour. The second place bird of the Davis Loft was clocked in at about 1 minute 30 seconds after the first bird. Third place winner was Mrs• Edward Huckaba. She was breathing on the neck of the winners and came so very close to winning the opener. This was the first time she has ra- ced, and if its any indication of how good her birds race, she is going to be some competi- tion. Fourth place was won by her husband, Edward Huc- kaba and he is no new comer Vote for Ronald Reagan May 4 by voting for delegates pledged to Reagan.

Mac's birds flew 1479.5478 yards per minute. Seventh place was won by Ray Blocker of Elba, Alabama. Ray, a great sportsman, also has some really good birds. Eighth place was won bibYrd Rancy Huchaba. Randy's flew 1212.6736 yards per minu- te and that's good enough to many races. Randy is go- lag to be tougher every year. Randy is a really fine pigeon man. Ninth place was won by Edward Huckaba. Edward had two birds scoring in the top 10Tenth place was won by Craig Huckaba. As the record clear- ly shows, the Huckaba's had their birds flying extremely well. The sad note of this race was when Roland DeFranco's clock stopped. Mr. DeFranco would have surely had two birds in the top ten birds. One thing is for sure, he knows he had two birds that did their part. This race was fast, the competition extremely keen. The people WhO didn't place birds in the top ten can still be proud of their birds. The races can't get much faster than this first race. Our next race is from Port St. Joe, Florida and will be on April Z4, 1976. ammmmmmnmnmm FOr Delegate to Republican National Convention--State at Large Place No. 1 Place No. 9 l~n Collins (Reagan) Sue Mathisen Steele(Reagan) ~ace No. 2 Place No. 10 llace G.

Atuber- culin skin test is a good place to start. TB germs can thrive al- most anywhere in the body, but they usually attack the lungs. If the germs are flourishing and reproducing, they get into the person's sputum and can be spread by coughing and sneez- ing. This is active disease. Unless the person is treated by drugs, he or she will pro- bably suffer extreme weak- ness, weight loss, and short- ness of breath eventually. Not everyone who is infected with TB germs, though, has active disease. TB germs can enter the body but remain in a dor- mant state for years. But un- der certain conditions...when the body's defenses are week- ened . . . active TB can break out. Most new cases of active TB develop in people who have been infected with TB germs for some time. A tuberculin test can indicate the presence of TB germs in the body. Though there are se- veral types of tests, a common one consists of injecting an ex- tract called tuberculin into the top layers of skin. The area of hardness around the injec- tion two to three days later gi- ves some indication about the presence of TB germs. Large reactions are particularly sus- picious. If active TB is con- firmed by X-rays and labora- tory analysis, drug treatment must begin at once. Even if the disease is inactive .... that is .... the person infect- ed with TB germs that aredor- mant . .. taking pills can pre- PERSONALS Place No. 3 ._ N.L. and Beverly Cox (pre- Place No. 11 Mr. and Mrs. Arthur R. viously of Bethesda, Maryland, Guy Hunt (Reaga,,) Bob French (Reagan) Turner of Florala were in Ma- con County on April 24tb, (Sa- and now residing in Herndon, ~aa~No Place No. 12 turday) for the official de
