ALMOST A MILLION ALL TOLD Gunnison County in the Clear Gunnison County subscribed for $196,400 of the Victory Loan Notes which represents an oversubscription of $55,650. The people of the County have “finished the job” with the same enthusiasm and patriotism that has characterized every war activity in which they have participated. Each and every loan has been oversub scribed in the County. This week it is impossible to pub lish the corrected list showing the amount subscribed in each district. The committee will check up the bank reports, railroad reports, and district reports and expect to be able to pub lish the amount subscribed in each district of the County next week. However, from the bank reports, and railroad report, the exact amount subscribed by the entire County is obtained. These figures are as fol lows: First National Bank $ 78,500 Gunnison Bank & Trust Co. 44,950 Bank of Crested Butte 57,150 Railroad Subscriptions 18,550 $199,150 Minus Railroad Subscriptions taken through Banks .... 2,750 Total Subscription $196,400 Quota 140,750 Oversubscription $ 55,650 Clifford'H.

There were between twelve hun dred and thirteen hundred Gunnison County’ subscribers to the Victory Notes, indicating a splendid distribu tion. People of the Town of Gunnison subscribed $65,000, in Victory’ Notes, and the Crested Butte people sub scibed $55,000. The quota was $36,000 for each town. The records show that in the five Liberty' Loans and War Savings Stamp loan the people of Gunnison County have subscribed for $911,576 in these Government securities.

Art Work for the Annual Normal School Bulletin. A much-desired innovation is being tried for this year’s Annual. It is a rare occasion \Vhen one finds this in teresting book decorated in a suitable manner; as a rule, anything goes, both as to the kind of work and the ideas presented. There is no reason at all why the drawings should not be made fitting not only in execution but also in ideas. Everything going into the Annual this year is planned so as to be related in some way; some draw ings refer to the locality in which the Normal is located, portraying things' with which our students are familiar; others are connected with school life—and yet all are bound in one complete harmony by a pleasing geometric -design, and by' masterful execution, planned especially for pur poses of reproduction. If every thing works out as well as planned, and the results are as good as the be ginning, we feel certain we have an Annual which is among the best.

Colorado led the rest of the states of tho Union in tho amount of pub licity per capita in all the other Treasury Department drives and I am inclined to think that we led in this drive, although I do not know at this time. At any rate, the campaign was so conducted that we were the fourth state to go over the top by selling tho bonds direct to the people. lowa and Michigan reached their quotas first but their banks underwrote tho Loan. Oregon reached its quota first through sales to tho people and Col orado was second. Tho direct sales to tho people secured a wider distribution of the Loan and was really what the Government wanted. Again thanking you, I am, Yours very truly, ALVA A. SWAIN, Director of Publicity Liberty Loan Committee, Denver, Colorado. FOR SALE!—A heating stove, sew ing machine, a buggy tongue and neck yoke.

Explicitly Explained The engineer had become tired of the boastful talk he heard from tho other engine drivers at his boarding house. One morning he began: “This morning I went over to see a new machine we’ve got at our place, and it’s astonishing how it works.” “And how does it work?” asked one. “Well,” was tho-reply, “by means of a pedal attachment, a fulcrumed lever converts a vertical reciprocat ing motion into circular movement. Tho principal part of the machine is a huge disc that rotates in a vertical plane. The power is applied through the axis of the disc, and work is done on tho periphery, and tho hardest steel by mere impact may be reduced to any shape.” “What is this wonderful machine?” was asked. “A grindstone,” was the reply,— Chicago News. An Increase in Rye Production Colorado shows an increase of about 3 percent in acreage of winter ryo this year as compared with last year, or about 120,000 acres, against 117,- 000 acres for 1918.
