Thursday, February 7, 1946
No declaration was made in 1945
by either the President or by Con
gress setting the official end of the
war, therefore American farmers in
cluding Noble County, have been
given a virtual guarantee that price
supports on most farm products will
run for another three years, or until
the end of 1948. This statement
comes from Elmer F. Kruse, State
director for the field service branch
of the USDA’s Production and Mark
eting administration at Columbus.
Legislation directing price sup
ports fixes the support period for
the duration of the war and until
the “expiration of the 2-year period
beginning with the
date upon which the
proclamation or the
hostilities in the present war have
terminated.” Since 1945 was per

PUNXY GROUNDHOG SAYS
HIS SHADOW’S SHOWING
Punxsutawney, Pa., Feb. 6—
Punxsutawney groundhog club
ported today that precisely at
a. m., the groundhog emerged from
his Canoe Ridge Weather Works at
Gobblers Knob and saw his shadow.
In accordance with an old tradi
tion the groundhog thus forecast to
the world that winter weather will
continue for six more weeks.
A representative of the club said:

How anyone can bear up un

than I can understand.
Of course I realize that my

could poach an egg and have

practically no time at all. My
wife said you simply get the wa

it cook for a minute or two,
scoop it out and put it on a
piece of toast. She didn’t tell
me, however, the trick of catch
ing the egg when the two min
utes are up, nor that it wouldn’t
work, if the egg breaks, to try
to save the remains by pouring
the whole mess into a strainer.
Nor did she remind me that

But egg poaching was merely a

Board of Review
Set-up For Awards
A board of review for decorations
and medals, headed by Admiral
Frederick J. Horne, USN, has been
appointed by Secretary of the Navy
James Forrestal to prevent any over
sights, injustices or omissions in the
presentation of awards to officers
and enlisted men of the navy, ma
rine corps and coast guard.
The board, composed of regular
and reserve officers of the navy,
marine corps and coast guard, will
review such cases as may be advis
able in order to assure, insofar as
may be practicable, that there may
be no oversights, injustices or omis
sions,” Admiral Horne explained.
All present and former command
ing officers, in service or released
to inactive duty, should submit to
the board any recommendations for
service during the present national
emergency desired for personnel of
their present or former commands
who have not previously been recom
mended. Individuals who consider
they merit an award for service per
formed during this period should
communicate with their former com

New Road Maips
Are Now Available
New 1946 Ohio touring road maps,
firs, printed since the outbreak of
World War II, are robing oft the
presses and probably will be ready
for distribution the week of Feb. 3.
State Highway Director Perry T.
Ford said today.
The last maps printed by the
State Highway Department were
distributed in 1942, but that was re
printed in 1943.
Two hundred thousand of the 1946
road maps are being printed, Mr
Ford said, “but undoubtedly more
will have to be printed later in the
year as the demand for Ohio’s
beautiful road maps is tremendous.”
The map will be 26” 22”, unfold

practically no ill-effects from strip

ground stripped, and because the
land can be reclaimed to greater
worth after stripping.
2. That all the coal stripping in
the state—past, present, and pos

which stripping occurs.
