RECORD PRICES AT ANNUAL RAM SALES BUT VALUES ERRATIC DECORD yard prices for Terrick Terrick flock rams was a feature 1 of the Roma Annual Ram Sales held on Tuesday, although compared with other years values generally were very erratic. Almost a full clearance of the 311 stud and flock rams offered was effected, however, for a total value of £3571, at an average price of £11/7/6 a bead. Good rams sold well throughout the day, and any that were brought up to show condition met good cOinyetitiu. Bams that were not prepared for the salo, however, lacked support. It proves that the studB will have to give more attention to rams forwarded for future sales. Good Terrick Sales Tcnick prices included iho yard re cord of 30 guineas for iluck rams, while 42 flock rams averaged out at £20/15/ a head, another record for the yard. i Baby sold well to average 17} gus. | for flock rams, with studs selling to 51 guineas. .Minnie Downs sold to 16 guineas.

PARENTS WARNED AGAINST ALLOWING CHILDREN TO LEAVE SCHOOL EARLY A warning to parents against allowing their children to leave school before completing their training was issued at the an nual speech night of the Roma State High and Intermediate School on Monday by the school principal (Mr. F. Perry). Expanding business in Roma bad been making a great demand on students by endeavouring to coax them away from school as Boon as they reached the age of 11, Mr. Perry said. For apprcnticcBhipB, however, lie wuulil recommend at least one year in high school, because lack of science ■■Hid drawing made correspondence pap ers very difficult.
