Will is ton, N. D. STATE FURIt OFFICERS BONDS COMMISSIONER OF INSURANCE CLAIMS FALSE STATEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE That the public may know what kind of competition the State Bond ing Department must contend with in its hard fought, and recently acquir ed position in the business field, will be readily seen from the following quotation copied from a letter sent out to a township clerks by one of the private bonding companies of our State: "The time (March 19th) for the biennial meeting and election of town ship officers is close at hand. Bonds will be necessary as in former years. Inasmuch as the State Legislature failed to provide sufficient funds to carry on the work of the State Bond ing Department, it will be necessary for you to secure surety bonds as you have in the past." These are the first few lines only, but will suffice for the purpose. In the interest of the State Bond ing Department, I wish to announce to the public, that this statement is erroneous and false, and intended to mislead the respective officials having the bonding of public officers in charge. The fact is, that the State has already issued about .140 bonds and the premiums on same, amount ing to over $2300.00 are now on de posit with the State Treasurer. Thousands of blanks have been sent out to the County Auditors and township clerks and a general stam pede for applications is anticipate after the March elections. Special attention is called to Sec. 12 of the Bonding Act, where it states that no public moneys must be paid out for such bonds, except to the State Bonding Department. It is only fair, that the public should know these facts, and we trust that a general patronage will be ex tended the Bonding Department in order that the $100,000 fund may be reached as quickly as possible. Af ter that the interest on this fund should make the department self sus taining. Other papers please copy. S. O. Olsness, Commissioner of Insurance. Various Forces To Lose Identity NOT RESPONSIBLE TO KEEP NA TIONAL ARMY GUARDSMEN AND REGULARS SEPARATE Washington, March 15.—The neigh borhood character of national army and national guard units is certain to vanish as the war progresses in the opinion of army officials. British and French forces already have undergone the process and it now is being felt by American front line divisions, as the system of defense, held indispen sable by General Pershng and the allied chieftains to keep the front line at full fighting strength. Plans projected by the general staff for erecting a replacement sys tem to handle nearly a quarter of a million men this year, its is under stood, are .founded on acceptance of the fact that localization cannot be maintained. Eventually, it is believed that en listed men of the regular, national army and national guard will be in termixed throughout all divisions at the front. Mugt Be One Unit Congress expressed a decided pref erence for localization of the national army in the selective service law, but many officers have maintained insis tently, that it should be impossible to handle the army except as one great unit. The facts promise to bear out that view, it is said, and with the replacement of casualties, thy weld ing of the expeditionary forces into one homogeneous unit has already begun. In an opinion, rendered last Septem ber, Acting Judge Advocate General Anzell sustained absolutely the legal right of the department to transfer officers and men among the regulars, national army and national guard as found necessary. The six division corps organization adopted by General Pershing was devised to give a corps commander a two-division front to hold, backed up by two divisions on the second line and two divisions on the third line. As casualties occur in front line divi sions, men are drown from second line divisions and second line units fill up immediately front third line divisions. As an illustration of the effect of 93 WILUSTON GRAPHIC this process on the personnel of a particular regiment a New York na tional guard or national army divi sion, might be in the front line. Be hind it in the same corps might stand an Illinois division in the second line and a far western division in the third line, or either of these support ing divisions might be a regular unit, composed of men from all parts of the United States. Gradually, as its casualties and other replacements in creased, the New York division would become filled with men from the oth er divisions or, when it was in re serve, would feed many of_its original New York men into the division ahead of it. If they continued in the same relations long, the three divi sions would become composites of all three with a steady flow of casuals, inti*oduced from the United States at the third line, still further diluting their original neighborhood complex- Red Cross Notes Scores of farmers in North Da kota have obtained iron crosses, not the black crosses of Prussianism but Red Crosses made from sheet iron to be used next summer in marking off acres of land the produce from which had been pledged to the Red Cross. At Tioga, Ray and Mott, all small North Dakota towns, nearly every farmer in the vicinity has pledged a part of his next year's crop. As a reward for growling and snarling when the word "Kaiser" is mentioned, a red dog in Quinn, S. D., has been presented with a Red Cross membership. Women of the Moorhead, Minn., Red Cross chapter announced two two workless and knitless days last week when all workers in the Red Cross rooms pledged themselves to go out and collect money .with which to buy more material for their work. Many men in Great Falls, Mont., have announced observance of "shave less day" once each week for the ben efit of the Red Cross. Money that they would otherwise give to barbers will be turned over to the local chap ter. The speed record in knitting has again been broken this time by a Red Cross worker of Grand Forks, N. D. Mrs. George Butterwick, mem ber of the Red Cross society of St. Mark's Lutheran church, completed a standard sweater in 5 hours and 50 minutes. A flower sale was held in Hoskins, N. D., recently and the entire pro ceeds were turned over to the Bis marck Red Cross fund. Florists of the town donated everything they had in the floral line for the sale, and $256 ^vas raised during the day. THE BACK YARD GARDEN A surprising amount of vegetables can be raised in the back yard gar den. The rows can be quite close to gether, 1 to 2 feet, and the late sea son plants can be started between the rows of early vegetables. For in stance, plant peas, onions, carrots and beets in rows 2 feet apart and then plant radishes, onion sets and early beets between the rows, thus making the rows 1 foot apart till these early season vegetables arte used. Sweet corn, beans, cabbage, potatoes, etc., can be in rows 2 feet apart. Each one will need to do a lot of planning in order to secure the best use of the space available.— Division N. Dak. Agr.
