THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE, NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA.
A. CAPITAL m National Guard? Then It WASHINGTON. If congress determines to continue the National Guard ns the array of reserve of the nation, Secretary "Baker states, the Gnunl crvlce will have to be reconstituted from the ground up. When -the men are discharged they will return to civilian life without any obligation nun mo without any obligation er to tiio federal or state govern- its to continue In National Guard cither meutR service. Should some systrtn of uni versal military training be worked out tt Is probable that the National Guard will cease to exist. There are many Nntionul Guard units organized since the war which are not affected. The great mass of the Guard, however, was merged Into the temporary forces of the nrmy of the United Stntes for the vjir, thereby loslug Its Identity. These regiments must be reconstituted, recruited to necessary strength and again presented to the federal government for recognition before they can take a place In the federalized National Guard. Mr. Baker said he believed that state authorities generally would not nttempt to reconstitute any of the old regiments of National Guard until after the divisions Into which they had been merged return from France. It would seem desirable, he thought, that men to be discharged from those divi sions be given a chance to re-enlist in the guard. This would enable, he said, the reconstituted regiments to be in fact as well as in name a continuation of the old organizations, with every right to carry the names of the historic battles In France of Chateau Thierry, the secpnd Marne, the Ourcq, the Vcsle, St. Mlhlel, Argonno forest, Sedan, Cote Chatlllon und other pluces tho divisions mndo famous on their banners. Permanent Christmas Trees and Memorial Planting A CALL Is issued by the American Forestry association to every community In the United States to take steps to make its community Christmas tree permanent. The association hopes to see the community tree, in many places great waste every year caused by cutting another tree. In nearly every com munity there will bo found an Ideal spot for public gatherings. There should be the living, growing tree that would come to be the gathering point not only at Christmas, but at other times. Such a tree might become, In many places, the center of a scheme for planting memorial trees in honor of our sailors and soldiers. Let us look ahead to next year by having your committee con sult the city or stilte forester in regard to planting n permanent community Christmas tree." The nation-wide movement to plant memorial trees is widening in scope. Among the many Indorsements are these: T. Gilbert Pearson, National Association of Audubon Societies Tho planting of trees means more to bird life titan can be estimated. The Audu bon societies most heartily indorse tho plan for memorial trees. Mrs. Ida Evans Arnold, General Federation of Women's Clubs, Chiengo In the planting of the Lincoln highway we are preserving the native flora of our country for those to enjoy who come after us; we are assisting In tho building of a permanent monument to those who lost their lives in the war; we hope to establish u bird-feeding zone and sanctuary from coast to coast. Nicknames Replace Division Numbers in A. E. F. TI1E American is strong for nicknames. Nobody and nothing escapes him. There are, for lnstnnco, Uncle Sam nnd "Black Jack" Pershing; doughboy and lentherneck ; Gotham and Windy City ; tho Sucker state nnd Little Iihody. So it Is not surprising that few of the army divisions of the A. E. F. are known among the lighting men by their official numerical designation. For example, the Thirty-seventh division Is naturally known ns the Buckeye, as It Is made up of National Guardsmen from Ohio. The Eighty fourth, composed of men from Indi ana, Illinois and Kentucky, is the Lin coln division. 'The Forty-first, made up from Oregon, Washington, Mon tana, Idnho, Wyoming and North Dakota, is tho Sunset. The Forty-second, the famous Ilnlnbow, named because it reflects local color way, It is made up of portions of the National Guards of New York, Louisi ana, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, Georgia, Alabama, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Maryland, Soutli Carolina, Colorado, Missouri, Virginia, North Cnrolinn, Kansas, Texas, New Jersey, Tennessee, Oklahoma, District of Columbia, Michigan, Nebraska, California and Oregon, anil was, beyond question, the most cosmopolitan division that left Americnn shores. The Twenty-ninth, from New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, Delnware and the District of Columbia, is the Blue and Gray division. Dixie is the name of the division containing National Guardsmen from Georgia, Alabama and Florida. Tho Ninety-first, from Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, Is the Wild West division. As most of tho doughboys in tho Eightieth come from south of Mason and Dixon's line, they have taken tho name of Lee division. Where, Oh, Where, Are Cherry Tree and Hatchet?

IMPROVED METHODS SHOWN Beginners Shown Advisability of Using Western Ewes as Foundation Stock Farmers Realize Value of Pure-Bred Sire. (Prepared by the United StiUes Depart ment of Agriculture) That the county fair is a fertile field for carrying on extension work has been demonstrated in the tipper penin sula of Michigan by Duncan L. Mc Millan, extension specialist In sheep husbandry of the United States de partment of agriculture, co-operating with the Michigan College of Agricul ture. . During tho recent county fair season Mr. McMillan displayed a novel sheep exhibit, prepared strictly on ed ucational lines, nt live locnl fairs. Tho object of the display was to demon strate Improved methods in handling and breeding sheep to farmers al ready in tho business, and to stimu late and assist others in getting start ed properly. It illustrated to begin ners the advisability of using western owes as foundation stock and crossing them witli pure-bred rams of the black fared breeds to build and grade tip tlocks. Make-Up of F-.hlblt. The exhibit was made up of several pens of sheep, Including one of west ern ewes brought In from the range this year, and others of first, second nnd third crosses of western ewes and pure-bred rams. One pen of Angora goats was used to demonstrate their brush-clearing ability by placing quan tities of brush in such fashion ns to make the goats climb for it. Milk goats were also included In the exhib it. The sheep In the exhibit were used for special judging demonstra tions nnd In Illustrating the more im portant points to be considered In se lecting breeding stock and culling tho ilock.

Important Things Accomplished. On the whole, tho most important things accomplished sejem to be that farmers came to realize the value of tho pure-bred sire. Also, they learned to appreciate western ewes as foun dation stock and to recognize the or ror of using the open, coarse-wooled breeds of sheep for this purpose. AIM FOR BETTER SEED CORN County Agents Have Directed Consid erable Effort In Selection and Testing Campaigns. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Realizing tho Importance of good seed corn as an essential in increasing production, und knowing that fall-selected seed corn is best, county agents have directed considerable effort In seed-corn selection und testing cam paigns. Three hundred and fifty-four ugents assisted OII.SIIJ farmers last year In the 'XI Northern and Western states in fall-selecting seed corn, and more than a million udditionnl acres wore planted with full-selected corn re sulting from work of the agents dur ing the previous full. Assistance was given to 30.KI8 farmers In tho testing of seed corn, resulting in 040,503 addi tional acres being planted with tested seed. The agents conducted extension campaigns to encourage seed corn se lection In the fall and seed-corn test ing in Illinois, Indlnnu, Iowa, Michi gan and Pennsylvania.

(Prepared by the United Stntes Depart ment of Agriculture.) Ambition engendered by boys' clubs in tho South does not stop nt crop growing or production. Tho progres sive spirit inculcated by county agents nnd demonstrators leads to higher as pirations, good citizenship nnd the tie- mam Bale of Broom Corn. sire for education beyond that obtain able in tho elementary schools. An example of this commendable spirit comes to the states relation service in n recent field report from Alnbamn. "One of my boys," writes the agent in Center, a town in Cherokee county, "has made 102 brooms from his corn, lie lins sold GO at $1 each and has 200 more to make. The proceeds he will devote to ids education along more advanced lines." TREATMENT OF HOG DISEASES Ailing Animals Should Be Immediately Isolated in Clean Quarters j Disinfect Pens. I i Prepared "by tho United States Depart- ment ot Agriculture.) As soon us sickness appears In the herd the unaffected hogs should at oace be removed to clean, disinfected quarters, preferably without much range, for by running over pnstures they mny come In contact with con tagion. Their feed should be carefully regulated and, If they have previously been on pasture, should includo some green feed, roots, or an abundance of .skim milk. Tho quarters In which tho sickness first appeared should be thoroughly cleaned, all bedding and rubbish burned, nnd loose boards and old par titions torn out and burned. If the pen Is old, knock It to pieces and burn it. Disinfect pens nnd sleeping places, using airslaked lime on the floors and Hie cnrbolic-acid solution on tho walls and ceilings. Whitewash everything. If a hog dies from any cnuse 'the car cass should never be exposed where it may be devoured by the other hogs or by passing birds or beasts, but should be burned nt once or hurled deeply and the pens thoroughly disinfected Inline dintely. If possible, do not move tho enrenss from the place where It falls; but If necessary to do so the ground over which It Is dragged should be dis infected. It Is not known positively hew long the virus of hog cholera may survive In the soil, hut under fuvor alile conditions It Is not unlikely that it may live In the ground for several months. Care should be taken to main tain n strict quarantine between the sii It and healthy hogs. Tho same at tendant should not care for both lots unless he disinfects himself thoroughly after each visit to the Infected hogs, l ogs should be confined until tho dis e;iM is stamped out. Tho treatment of hogs suffering from cholera- Is not satisfactory after the di-ease has become well established in a herd. The prevention of an out break by the use of antihog-cholera viieclnntion should bo relied upon rath er than the cure of sick animals.
