Meantime the country has also given peaceful haven to Congolese refugees 5n several large encamp- ments. It has brought these needy expatriates within easier reach of missionary efforts, but at the same time added greatly to the burdens of [he very meager Staffs of all the variolls missions active in Bur- undi. One of the major problems has been to establish schools for the Congolese, with no additional mis- sionaries available for teaching and no extra funds with which to build and equip even the most ele- mental of schools.

SHELTOH MOTOR CO. il 233 South First St. Teenagers Constitute Large Business Harket NEW YORK (Special) -- Mason County's teen-age population has become an economic force to be reckoned with a $1,662,000 force. As a consumer group, they have lhis impressive amount of money at their command, a matter of great interest to local retail mer- chants. Equally important, from a bus- iness point of view, is the influ- ence these youngsters wield in de- termining how l heir parents spent] money. They help decide the kind of car that is bought, the applian- ces that are purchased and the type of improvements that are made in the home. TIIF SIZE-I:P OF TIlE teen- age market is based on studies and reports made by the Department of Labor, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Gilbert Youth Re- search, Inc., and other agencies. In M:son County, as in most other areas of the United States, the teen-age population is large and is growing larger raNdly, it is ;hown. In 1960 there were 1,837 boys and girls locally between the ag- es of 13 and 19, according to the Census Bureau. q'he number is ex- pected to be about 30 percent greater by 19e5. The }'ate of growth in this age category is found, in line with the national trend, to be 3! times faster than that of the popula- tion as a whole. BUT SHEER NUMBERS is only part of the story. Teen-agers lo- cally have bigger allowances than ever before. One reason is that their parents can afford to give them more. Another is that since, to a greater extent than in former years, the children do their own shopping for clothes and other nec- essities, they have to have more spending money. A breakdown shows [that it costs about $800 a year to main- tain the average 13-year-old, tak- ing into consideration food, cloth- ing, housing, medical care, enter- tainment and miscellaneous expen- ses. At the age 15 the cost is up to $865, at 17 to $920 and at 19 to $955, with college costs excluded. The average figure is $905, which occurs at age 16. Applying this national average locally, the amount spent on Ma- son County's teen-age population pet" year comes to an estimated $1,662,000, Local Income Averages Up NEW YORK (Special) The ef- feet of the income gains that Ma- son County families lmve achieved cluring the last few years has been -to move them up into higher in- come brackets. Some, who had been at the $4,000 to $7,000 level, have climbed a rung to the choice $7,000 to $10,000 bracket Others. previously in the $2.500 to $4,000 gronp, have moved to the next higher category. All along the line the shift has been upward, with the result that a smaller proportion of local fam- ilies remain in the low income po- sitions and a larger proportion than ever before are in the middle- or-better brackets. THE PROGRESS is detailed by Sales Management in a copy-right- ed report that reveals, for every section of the country, what part of its population falls within each of the income classifications. In :Mason CoUnty, 3,121 house- holds, representing 57.8 percent of the total number, are listed with net cash incomes of $4,000 or more per year. This is after paying their Federal and state taxes. Not included is any non-cash in- come. such as the value of home- rown products consumed on farms. Another of the income categories for which loCaofiflwes are given i the $7,000 $ 0,000 bracket. This contains 9.9 per cent of all households in Mason County. In the $2.500 to $4.000 group are 17.8 percent of the households. The results are important in that they give an indication of the well-being of the majority of the people, more so than average in- come figures are able to do. They take note of whether an unusually large, share of a com- munity's income goes to a small group at the top, with very little going to others, or whether the fat is well distributed. NationAlly, even in areas where there is a marked imbalance, def- inite improvement has been noted. The gap has been narrowing with the rise of family income from year to year. The fact that the proportion of middle-income households is grow- ing is a healthy sign for business, according to the economists. They find that people in these brackets spend more for goods and services, on an ovezall basis, than do any others.

SLHELTON HIG,H SCHO(tL School Year Starts Off With Busy' A Number Of Organizations Start  By Molly Murdey As another year of school be- gins, stu:lents are once again caught up in the rush of fall activi- ties. It seems as if there are sev- eral club meetings each night after school, as well as football turn- out, lists to sign and fees to pay. Added to all this is the ever pres- ent homework, which ahvays seems strange and difficult when first attempted. TIIE YEAIIlgOOK staff is one group that mflst work quickly in order to meet the strict; deadlines required by the printing company. Some pictures for the 1964 Sagha- lie, which is edited by Bobble Hil- debranJ with Tom Sehlegel as assistant editor, were taken last Tuesday. Dean Pahner spent most of the morning at the school photo- graphing lhe Smiling faces of jun- iors and sophomores. Several of the Saghalie staff, including Bobhie I:Iildebrand, Marie Kneeland, Tom Schlegel and the staff's adviser, Vm. Steinbacher, attended a yearbook workshop at the University of Washington Sept. 28. The staff picked up sev- eral valuable ideas in the meet- ings which lasted from 9 a.m. m- til 3 p.m. Tills YEAR'S PEP CLUB, led by President Sue Gilliland, has' discovered a new way to cheer the Highclimber football team on to victory. Members of the chlb meet in front of the gym just as the boys are leaving for an out-of- towm game. TSe girls then form two lines for the team to walk through as they bord the bus. Other Pep Club officers are Joan Quimby, vice president; Gerrie Gems, secretary and Carol Hardin, board of control representative. FTA (Future Teachers of Amer- ica) has recently re-organized for this school year under the direc- tion of Larry Nelson. In order to raise money for the FTA scholar- ship fund of $100, members plan to sell hot coffee and cider at home football ,games. These warm drLnks will certainly be appreciated as tile nights grow colder. Those wishing to join PTA must write a paragraph entitled "Why I "Want To Be A Teacher", and have it signed by two teachers. Sandy McArthur was elected pres- ident. As I met my deadline, seniors were wondering what the theme of the Senior Ball will be. Themes for the bail which Ts slated for the middle of Nbvember. were sub- mitted last Friday to Andy Tuson, senior class adviser. Various com- mittees are now being organized as the seniors prepare to present an event they have long looked forward to. GIRLS' CLUB OFFICERS were installed Friday to the theme of "Stars, Now and Tomorrow". Of- ricers installed were president. Kelly Fredson; vice president.
