Hill, of th4 state farm bureau, has appointed Senator C. W. Amsdeo as couotv chairman of the grift corn relief project, and a meeting is to be held in the farmers' room at, the court house on Saturday, March lUth at 2 p. m. The gift orn relief work will be discussed, and Hual arrangements made for collect ing and shipping Grant county's ijift corn. All corn growers are urged to b- present Shipping directions have been received from the state director, and tbe next step is to find out how much Grant county corn growers are ffoinif to contribute. Corn i» already being shipped from other states, and whatever we do should be done promptly. Shipping instructions in clude ihe following: QUALITY OF CORN7: Corn for foreign shipment must be of very good quality, for these reasons: 1. wost of it wi be milled aDd made up into corn products, such as grits, flakes, hominy, corn flour, etc.. wnich require high quality of corn. 2. Corn shipped whole must be of good quality lo stand shipment, and to furnish acceptable food for foreign child reu. 3. It is necessary in order that the corn may accomplish its mistsion food for starviLi? humanity, that as a it be interests of the faritets of •this country lie in furnishing a real demonstration of the value of corn products to people in loreigiU coun tries who do not know the laste of corn. li the quality is not good it wiil be necessary to sell such corn as is not good ati'i replace it with a of suitable quality. This is a great opportunity for ser vice. It is to the muiual interest of starving children and of the farmers ot America to make the quality invar iably 4*top-notch." In the words of Mr. Hoover we want our gift "pi od iu-ts of which we will be proud." Do not load corn beiow No. three grade.

Colors must not be mixed in the same car. All white corn possible is wanted, as this is t»est adapted to corn products manufac ture. Yellow corn may be contribut ed, thougu it may be necessary for us to exchange it far the same amount of vrhlte corn. 4 EXTRACTS FROM FARM BUREAU BULLE TIN ON GIFT CORN RELIEF. "Lei us market our surplus in relief and take our pay in love," said a young Illinois farmer in answer to the appeal of the war waif children ol Europe and the starving millions of China. The "gift corn relief" is headed by one of the nation's big farmers, Carl 8. Vrooman. It is a great humana trian project, besides being a wonder ful opportunity to save starving hu manity and to do a true service for the world. It is a great economic op portunity, providing an outlet ffVr our surplus corn and putting palatable corn products into the mouths of mil lions of people in foreign «ountries who have never tasted corn—a chance to open new markets for future sur pluses. It )emands most serious at tention and warrants much activity. Indications are that South Dakota farmers will give in a w»y that will make the more eastern corn states realize tbat the Sunshine state is in the neart of the 'corn belt." South Dakota's quota, based upon the world needs and what is being done by other states is about one and h^f million bushels—or ne and a hftlf p$r cent of our state production. Ca 8. Vrooman, national director of the gift corn relief, reports that gift corn is reaching the mil is in ever increasing volume every day. To date Illinois hns loaded more corn than any other two states. Ohio ia planning a big state eorn state corn day, dfuring which buckeye farmers will shell and load their en tire quota—half million bushels, re quiring some 850 cars. "The End of a Perfect Day."

Thia, ll the type of schoolroom that i nation out of the 10,500,000 i If a teacher In n politic school In the Philippines desires to punish a oiliId, she doesn't have to apply tlie ruler. She simply sentences the uileud ing pupil to remain away from school a few days! This Is the most severe punishment she can Inflict, for Filipino children take an almost abnorrnyi pleasure in going to school and,acquiring an edu cation. The all-.'ili^ino legislature, in response to the popular ^demand for "schools, and still more schools," is constantly increasing Its .appropria tions for education, but the schools can scarcely be constructed fast enough to care, for the ever-increasing enrollment. Tl»e school enrollment is now 8U2,(X»U without any compulsory attendence laws. When Dewey sailed into Manila Kay there were 2,100 private school in the islands.

A Passing Landmark of Old Manila This is a photograph of the famcus old Bridge of Spain, Manila. It t* now a departed landmark of the Philippines, for its pluce has been taken hf one of the finest bridges in the entire Orient, the new Jones bridge. The .Tones Bridge is named in honor of the late Congressman W. A. Jones of Virginia, author of the Jones law of 1916 which promised the Filipinos independence upon the establishment of a stable government. The old Bridge of Spain is called "the mother of Manila's bridges." T&s original bridge was built of pontoons sometime between the years 1590 and 1000, being known as the Bridge 0/ Boats. The stone bridge shown abof® was built about 1680.

In the citie# those who work days go to school at night. "Today there Is hardly a barrio where youngsters cannot be found who speak English. One-third of the house of representatives and eighteen of the twenty-four senators speak English.
