For years in this country th ous
ands of people have lost their lives
and many more have been maimed
:l’or life because of excmsive speed
on the highways .by motorists. In
spite of the tragic toll little or no
ef‘fort was made to regulate the
speed of drivers. Recently, obeecause
it will save a little needed rubber,
a natim-wide limit has been placed,
on driving speed. The result willt
be a saving of rubber and incidental
-3y a sharp reduction in the loss of
life through traffic accidents. The
moral is, if one the pointed out, that
when a people want to do a thing
badly enough, a way is usually found
to do it.
The suggestion that farm labor be
subsidized as a means of keeping it
on the farm and meeting the compe
tition of the high wages paid in ‘de
tense industries is a matter that ap
pears to have some merit. It is ob
vious that unless something "like this
is done the farms are going to be
stripped of their labor and a real
mod shortage will result. Food is
going to be every [bit as important
in the war during the next year as
planes andguns and ships. An extra
(orce can be put on in a plant and
extra planes and guns be rushed
to completion, but the production of
food has to deal with the orderly
processes of nature and man must
arrange to work with these processes.
Because of the tire situation and
the rationing of gasoline, many, who
in the past have taken frequent
long trips in the summer, will the re-‘
quired to, vacation at home. This
will afford a splendid chance to re-‘
vive the picnic supper that was so
popular ‘before we got too busy anal
in 1:00 much‘ of a hurry to prepare
and eat, a picnic supper. There is
scarcely a town in the country that
does not have some splendid picnic
spots a short ways from town. With
a few elementary facilities these
should become increasingly popular.
It will be an interesting experience
{or the nation to ride less and relax
Every town has one of those
merchants who sits back and lets
the other merchants of *the town do
all the boosting for the community.
He lea the boosters advertise and
expects 'to profit from their pro-
métion. Ho'w good a towndisuverg
often depends upon the activity of
its boosters. .Jnst stop to think what
kind or a town would the town be
if all the merchants in it werelike
the merchant who never boosts the
town and who never invites trade
to the town through advertising his
store. The merchants who boost the
town through inviting business to
the town through advertising de
out them the vtbwn would be a dead
place. ,3 ‘
The new road 'being built by the
unified States to Alaska may help
solve the problem of aid' to Russia.
Alaska is separated .from Russia by
the Bering Straits which are only 56
miles wide. This means that sup
plies to Russia, instead of traveling
thousands of miles through sub
marine infeeted waters of the north
Atlantic to reach Russia, may be
transported to Alaska, from which
point there would be only 56 miles
of travel by water.
We agree with 'Willkie that there
should be a. second front, but we are
not in possession of enoth facts
to say when the second front should
be launched or where. The need of
a second front is obvious. but this is
one matter in which a mistake
might prove disastrous to the Allies.
When we are inclined to grow Im
patient for more thousand plane
raids into Germany it might be
well to remember that a thousand
plane raid requires 40,000 barrels of

We note there is some objection
on the part of the army officers to
the suggestion that 18-year-old \boys
be given a full year’s training before
being sent to the firing line. We
don’t pretend to 'be a military ex-‘
.per-t, but we ebelievee in justice to the!
{young boys, they should not be‘
rushed from a peaceful farm and
lsmall town homes to the firing line.
They deserve a year’s training to ac
custom them to the realities of war.
’We believe the younger group will
make much the best soldiers, but
they are entitled to the benefits of
'training. '
We have long read in history of
‘Napoleon’s disastrous retreat from

The “kraut barrel” once again is
expected to return to favor in the
grocery store. You see. none of the
1942 production of sauerkraut can
‘be canned for civilian conssumption.‘
so the wooden barrels will roll into
’the grocer’s for bulk sales. At the]
same time, the supply of canned}
sauerkraut carried over from the
1941 pack has been frozen. So all
signs point to the kraut barrel. In-‘
cidentally. kraut is a low priced food
rich in vitamins A. B and C as well
as valuable minerals necessary in
building übody structure. And here's
a suggestion to use for menu plan
ning. Pig’s knuckles, often com
bined with sauerkraut, are expected
to be plentiful because of the huge
lhog slaughter. ’
Put on the skillet and some 11
other items of cast iron kitchens

of household equipment for the

styles of cast iron kitchenware will
be reduced from some 200 to 12, and
also the amount of iron for these;
articles has been decreased. But
there will still be dutch ovens. grid-g
tiles, muffin pans and pans for corn
:bread or corn sticks. And the glam-‘
our product of the pot and pan
corner—enameled kitchenware—also‘
is facing reduction, both as tovcon
sumption of iron and steel and asl
to the variety of articles which may
be made. But ,there will be enough‘
for the kitchen brigade. l
