are also little matters of finding the

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

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.

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."

For Safety
Check Your Lights and Brakes
Before doing sommer driving or taking a vacation
trip, let us check the lights and brakes on your car. It
may save you a very serious accident.
Good Lights and Brakes are the most important items
to protect both your safety and the safety of others
on the road.
We have the only official light testing machine in the
county. Have your lights checked with the proper
equipment.

"If we were to have a depression

Some of the veterans of World War
II are organizing and have come
out with a statement of political
principles that include the follow
ing:
!
"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. We also have always had a
genuine admiration for the prin
ciple S enunciated by that other
patriotic organization, the influential
home strongly convinced of the
great superiority of our American
way of life. We are glad to see
them preparing to fight for it here

What do the records show at '
as to tonnage transported per
freight train, which we have read
is the largest ever?
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.
