Maybe we were slightly hesitant in samp ling the first mouthful but after taste there was no more hésita - Never have we eaten more nci one tion. delicious meat loaf than that made from the bear which had fattened on the Bakker apples. Fish and wild berries in the sum mer, and game in the fall add many appetizing items to Lincoln county Our own worst trouble is menus. to find the time to go out after these good things. Of course there are also little matters of finding the berries, landing the fish and con necting with the game when we do get out! „ _ . . „ _ _■ , .,, & Spit Club made a -p the other day to tell us no to -. come conceited bec e V people are speaking and waving to us on the streets now-a-days.

"T , , No. it is not because of failure of the country to produce a plenty to supply all; rather it is the re suit of governmental regulations and restrictions which have been and are stifling all business and taking away from the masses their blood bought heritage of liberty. While blaming the government for foregoing conditions, we must not) lose sight of the fact that we. our selves as citizens, have aggravated and added to the unrest and trouble someness of the times by our own greed and total disregard of the rights of others. We would seem to have degenerated oftimes to that condition so aptly described as "dog cat dog." In many ways the American I people retain their old time habits, j one of which is enjoying a good j "rooking" at a circus; so maybe the) irrepressible Yankees will come out! on top in the long run—They al ways have in the past! Rare Metals Did you ever hear of titanium, zirconium, hafnium or indium, bari um or cerium? And then there's rhe nium, molybdenum, boron, lantha num, yttrium and gallium and thalli um and germanium, gadolinium, uranium, thorium, strontium and berylliom. Well if you have heard of them, the department of the interior's electrodevelopment labor atory chemists say they are now al. most unknown, rare metals which in the future may become familiar to everyone. They have been developed more recently by war usage. For instance, titanium and zirconium have been used as substitutes for stainless steel. Titanium ores are available in almost unlimited quan tities. Zirconium is useful as an al loy of copper, such alloys having | twice the strength of copper. or never Timid Guanaco The guanaco is the larger of the two wild representatives of the wool bearing animals of the camel fam ily found in South America. The other is the vicuna, and the two do- ! mesticated varieties are the llama and the alpaca. The exceedingly tim id guanaco is graceful and appeal ing In appearance. At maturity its shoulders are nearly four feet above the ground, its legs are long and slender and its neck curved. The long, soft hair is fawn colored on top and white underneath. It lives in herds of 6 to SO animals and its cry has been described as being "be tween the belling of a deer and the neighing of a horse." |You Are Standing On Holy Ground, Says Hindu Scholar By Charles D. Rowe Here is a paragraph I ran onto in my reading the past week that should hold a real note of interest for the people of this land. reads: For decades foreign students have come from other lands to study in our American colleges and universities. Since China's "first hundred" in 1872, the number has ÎÂ predicted that by 1950 it w.U have reached 50,000. students recently arrived from In dia, met in an Indian restaurant in New York City to relax over familiar food. They were addressed by an Indian scientist long resident in this country. "You are stand ing on holy ground in this land of Washington of Jefferson, of Lin coin." he said; "the hope of the world is here or at least three A group of fifty young fourths of it." "You are standing on hold ground . . . . the hope of the world is here!" And yet there is a strong and active group here in the United States composed of parlor-pinks and wild radicals who are constantly, scheming to change thi9 govern-j ment to one similar to what is found in Europe where there is confusion, tyranny, bloodshed and a pathetically low standard of liv ing. No wonder the Indian scientist said, after a long residence here, "You are standing on holy ground." These are dangerous times.

"To preserve constitution of the United States." "To insure the rights of free press, free speech, free worship, free as sembly and free elections." "To provide social and economic security to all." "To maintain full production and full employment in the United States under a system of private enterprise." We like those principles. They voice a healthy and vigorous Ameri canism.

The average freight train in the United States in 1944 carried 1,138 tons of freight, a new all-time high. This compares with 1,116 in 1943 and 651 in 1921. Hotel Growth The change of the wayside inn— which was an integral part of life centuries ago—into the modern lux ury hotel was a gradual process in this country. Until the beginning of the 19th century, 30 rooms had been the maximum size for an American inn. In early Colonial days, in spite of their limited size, the public inns played an important part in the national life and were second only to the meeting house as a focus for community life and warm refuge for the traveler. Communities had a vi tal interest in the public house. In 1656, for example, the general court of Massachusetts made towns liable to a fine if they did not maintain a public house or "ordinary." Amer ican inns in pre-Revolutionary days kept pace with those of Britain and were generally modeled on the Lon don style. Seed Production Ever since World War I the U. S. has been growing more of its own vegetable seeds than it did before. But the requirements of the United Nations forced U. S. growers to make "phenomenal efforts. In prewar years the average three-year production of the large seeded vege tables such as peas, beans and sweet corn was about 100 million pounds, in 1943 and 1944 the average was nearly 300 million pounds. The three-year average production of small vegetable seeds was formerly about 10 million pounds, the 1944 production was more than 35 million pounds. The four leading biennial and onions, in 1944 showed produc- i tion of nearly 4V4 times the prewar average. % Aiiïanzïi- .'-Prv 4« ■ VI ■» i?! 1 o , Your Best SALESMAN ! That's the Classified Ad.
