EXAMINER'S COMMENTS
Considerable difficulty was encountered in making this examina
tion. Mrs. Ramsey, former Treasurer and Clerk, had not made an
entry of receipts from the last examination in April, 1944 to the date
the present Treasurer was appointed in August, 1944.
Duplicated receipts, other than for Licenses and Dog Tax, could
not be located, and the receipts ss shown were made up from the
above and other known receipts, the overage as shown in the last
examiner's report plus a remaining difference of $22.03.
A number of warrants covering disbursements also had not been
entered.
Taxes collected by the County Treasurer and remitted to the
Town Treasurer have not been distributed to the various funds, ac
cording to the levy, but all have been placed in the General Fund.
The indebtedness as shown has not changed in several years and
no levy has been set, and apparently no attempt made to reduce same.
Members of the Council were called together for a discussion of
conditions on the evening of June 1st, and we trust that some good
Will result from the meeting.
Respectfully submitted,
C. H. LOWE,
Deputy State Examiner.

It is true that the people are often deliberately
misinformed by propagandists.
Much has been claimed for the success of certain
Government encroachments in the field of business.
Strip such projects of special privilege; place them
on the same tax-paying basis required of private
enterprise; inspect their accounting systems; and
THEN'compare their accomplishments with those
of business-managed 'industry.
The result is an eye-opening contrast to the claims
of their political managers.

Labor Association
Sponsor Nationals
The Carbon county farm labor
association has taken over the
sponsorship of the Mexican Na
tionals, according to O. P. Rob
erts, county extension agent.
The Great Western Sugar com
pany sponsored the Nationals and
had signed a contract from May
15 to July 15. All Nationals are
to be shipped out of the county
except those who are contracted
through the labor association.
Approximately 75 Nationals
will be held over, Roberts stated.
This represents a slightly larger
number than were kept in the
county last year. "However," Rob
erts said, "in view of the fact that
the acreage of beets has been al
most doubled, it is believed that
the number held is far short for
safety, considering the need for
labor."
An extension has been made on
the war contract for prisoner of
war labor, Roberts said. "This was
done by the sugar company for
use in hoeing and weeding sugar
beets. It will be necessary for a
group of farmers to organize as a
labor association and to sign the
contracts for the prisoners and to
deposit at least $300 for 10 days
in order to obtain the men be
tween July 20 and July 30.
"Also, it will be necessary to
collect a greater portion of the
cost at the time the contracts are
signed. It does not seem feasible
to consider this class of labor. It
is suggested that in this case, a
group in any neighborhood that
wishes to attempt it secure trucks
or school bus loads of help from
Red Lodge as this is perhaps the
best available source in the coun
ty. Practically everyone in Bridg
er, Fromberg and Joliet is work
ing.
Alfalfa Weevil Is
Serious Threat To
County Hay Crops
Alfalfa in the northern part of
Carbon county has been serious
ly damaged by the alfalfa weevil,
according to O. P. Roberts, coun
ty extension agent. Dr. Harlow B.
Miles, state entomologist, has
some time in the county investi
gating fields that have been de
stroyed by the weevil.
Fields on the Joliet-Columbus
cut-off, those in the Dry Creek
territory and some in the south
ern part of the county have also
been affected, Mr. Roberts said.
Most crops of alfalfa have
grown to maturity, so loss on the
first cutting is negligble, Mr. Roh
erts said. However, it was found
that the second cuttings do not
start, and the field continues al
most brown in color,
"Due to the fact that the small
worms or weevils live on gummy
foods, and eat these to the ground,
be left off the fields for from one
to two weeks, and that the fields
be harrowed while in this dry
condition," Roberts stated.
"It should be understoond that
there are three stages of the wee
vil's life cycle. The first stage is a
small beetle which lays its eggs
in the tender new shoots of alfal
fa. These eggs hatch into worms
or weevils and these work their
| the tips,
way up through the stem into the
tips, and then emerge. Alfalfa is
left in a feathered condition on
"These small worms or weevils
are .bright green in color and
spend a certain length of time in
their life history eating on the
alfalfa. In this time they go into
the ground and pupate, then
emerge as adult beetles, after
which time the cycle begins again.
There is only one cycle in the
season.
"It is believed that by leaving
alfalfa dry after the first cutting
and to harrow the ground is the
best method for control. The sec
ond cutting may be considerably
shorter and perhaps be entirely
missing in some parts of the coun
ty this year. Farmers and ranch
ers should consider this before
selling too much of their hay re
serves for feed.
"Dust is still recommended for
feed crops. More information
about the dust may be secured
Is Again Opened
for fli S ht training is open again
at the extension office in Joliet."

KANSAS WOMEN
Following the signing of the treaty
with the Delaware and Shawnee
Indians in 1854, settlers poured into
Kansas. Women and children ac
companied the men on steamboats,
on horseback, in prairie schooners
and wagons. They went to make it
a home territory and courageously
stayed to make permanent homes,
despite the bloody years of border
warfare over the slavery issue. They
were strong, purposeful women who
foresaw the opportunity for prosper
ity and good homes for future gen
erations. Kansas has a monument
to them on the capital grounds st
Topeka. Their grandsons battle for
an unspoiled future for all .the Nation
and War Bond funds equip them.

N between the good news about the war these
days, careful readers of the paper will see grave
words about a serious national shortage that has a
direct bearing on military and civilian production
schedules.
Our domestic supplies of fats and oils will be
approximately one and one-half billion pounds less
than last year. Yet thousands of tons of fats are
still needed to help make countless essentials for the
battle- and home-fronts.
While country people have been doing an even
better job of saving fats than the city folks, we must
remember that, because of the meat situation, we
are in a better position to save. That's why we can't
afford to miss a trick.
So, let's save not only the big amounts from frying
and roasting, but also meat trimmings, plate scraps,
and scrapings. Melt them down once a week and add
the liquid fat to the salvage can. Skim soups and
gravies. Scrape every pan. Every drop is important.
When your salvage can is full, take it to your
butcher, and get 2 red points and up to 4^ for each
pound. If you have any difficulty, call your County
Agent or Home Demonstration Agent.
