But never any lens Govt. in anything—always more. And our highways are crowded with Govt, men in Govt, cars —using free gas. So far as I can see into the crystal ball, she looks like less and less for the ordinary person to do. and more and more for the Govt., and unless you axe in I politics, the day is in the offing when you will be on a limb —un- less you get elected to something. But there is one dubious angle about everybody working for the| Govt. I cannot savvy who will I then furnish the free gas—or even make it —or if there will be any. These same fellers there on the banks of the Old Potomac, who have been getting us into the 1 mire for years versus getting us, out. they are showing signs, of do-j ing likewise about getting u s into war. If we let them do so, we won’t need to furnish any further proof that we are an even 100 per cent simple—and need a guardian. Yours with the low down, JO SERRA. o HOW LONG..

Ship loads of cottonseed and its com- I petitor of soya beans, formerly ex-! ported to Scandinavian and other! north European countries, are be ing forced back upon the markets; of America. Even at home the cotton farmer, finds hog lard hogging his largest! fat market,while the greatest im- ! pending domestic soya bean crop in history makes the prospects for j cottonseed prices on his year’s crop low indeed. Here is a situation which calls for united defense on the part of j I cottonseed producers.

Arizona in 1938 produced 2,- 548,000 pounds of butter, 1, 171,- 000 pounds of cheese, 632,000 gal lons of ice cream, 9,860.000 pounds of canned milk. “In 1931 milk was the third larg est single source of farm cash in come in the state, topped only by cattle and cotton. Milk wa« 10 per, cent larger than the combined farm cash income from all grain, fruits and nuts, 14 per cent greater than the combined income from hogs, sheep, chickens, and eggs, over 4 times wool. “Estimates for the nation as a whole show that milk production on farms this June will reach a new aK-time peak. Last June farm milk production in the U. S. total ed 5,332.000.000 quarts of milk.’’ o Coolidge is getting white divi- I sion strips on the main highways | and safety zone ß for pedestrians which will aid some in preventing ; accidents. o Making Log Cabins Endure With vacation time approaching, buf'ding a log cabin is often in cluded in ones plans. Log cabins in t hese days are built mostly for summer homes and recreation pur- ( poses although in wooded sections of the country the building of log I cabins for year-long homes has not j entirely ceased. Few people care THE COOLIDGE EXAMINER to put up a cabin that will begin to rot in a short time, but many are built in such away that early ’ decay is almost certain, say g the U, S. Forest Products Laboratory, Madison, Wis. Os first Importance is the foun | 1 ! dation. The easy thing to do, and too frequently the thing that is done, i 8 to lay the bottom logs directly on the ground. Placing wood in direct contact with the ground is one of the surest ways to hasten its decay. The Boil molß ture has direct access to the wood and keeps it damp, making condi tions very favorable for the growth of the fungi that cause de cay. Logs of some species, such as cedar, are very decay resistant and their heartwood will last a long time even under unfavorable con i ditions. Such the decay resist ! ance is only in the heartwood longest life can be expected from logs containing the least sapwood. Aspen, is one of many species that have little resistance to decay either in the heartwood or sap j wood. Good practice requires that the bottom logs or sills be kept a foot or two above the ground on foun dations that will keep the wood : dry. Stone or concrete is excel lent. Good ventilation beneath the floor Is Important because it keeps the soil and the wood dry. Foun dation posts or piers allow good ventilation unless the spaces be tween them are filled solid. In put ting up the walls and framing the window and door openings care should be taken to avoid forming creviceg where water can accumu late and soak Into the wood. Storm water does little harm to the building if it an run away quickly. Peeling the logs as soon a 8 they are cut avoids the attacks of bark beetles and most other insects, but there are a few insects that will attack peeled logs, especially hard wood loga. after they become dry. Light coating of coal-tar creosote applied to all surfaces before the log a are built Into the cabin are more effective than other kinds of coatings, but they cannot be count ed on to protect the wood very long under conditions that favor j decay 4 ' gjsgss-a-g-ag ■ =g ■■ ■ ill= Mi HBMI Mi MMi ■■■■HMM M wm I a asxsxsxsxxxxxssg ■ I Let Us Print Your I I | STATIONERY I Statements I I Letter Heads I I Legal Blanks j I I Cotton Tickets I I Coolidge Examiner I I ( I I i CENSUS TAKER STUNNED ' BY HOUSEHOLDER'S DEBT » Toledo, Ohio, April 30—Mrs. Ar , thur Cline, whoso husband is a lawyer, told the census taker to - day that the mortgage on her home [ amounted to $45,000,000,000, which i she said, is the national debt. So i ihe row started. ; The census taker was indignant. . Mrs. Cline called her husband, i who advised her that the answer . was correct. Then he called Richard Marlow, also a lawyer, . who Is supervisor of census here. Mr. Marlow said that Mrs. , Cline’s answer amounted to a re fusal to answer. Mr. Cline warned the census supervisor to put down Mrs. Cline’s reply. Mrs. Cline declared that the $45,- 000 000,000 which the Government 1 owes is a lien or mortgage on hisj home as well as others in the Unit ed States.

They are emerging from a shel tered infancy to face problems which no other childhood has en countered. The five little girls are close to reunion with their parents and their seven brothers and sis ters. Some time soon Oliva (Papa) Dionne will build a huge house to shelter the 14 member 8 of the Dionne family and the staff re quired for the care of the quints. Dr. Al’an Roy Dafoe, the country doctor to whose skill is credited the lives of the quintuplets, has aggreed with Dionne on the ad visability of such a move from a psychological standpont. The rest of the quints’ board of guardians have come to the same conclusion and the undertaking will begin ■ whenever Dionne la ready. Hitherto the children have UvecL • in a specially designed nursery: i erected soon after their birth to i provide them with the utmost in! ► care. Their segregation has been pleasant, as well as secure, but to; • assure nomal development as they ■ grow older it ha s been thought ad-| visable that they are reunited with) • their family. 1 Another experience for the quints: will be the learning of English to 1 supplement the French upon which' their French-Canadian parents have insisted. This wiH assist them financially, especially in the fields of radio and moving pic- I tures. Because they speak only ( French their guardians have been I forced to reject many lucrative of ) fers. ) It had been Dr. Dafoe’s plan to i have them taught English at meals ' and he started the educational pro gram a year ago but Papa Dionne protested so strongly that the Idea was dropped. Now he realizes the financial importance of the lan guage to five girls who must al ways be in the public eye. The five little girls are com fortably wealthy, In the nine months from April, 1939, to Janu ary, 1940 their contracts paid them $110,266.66 and investments in the same period brought them 23,672.48. Freak offers which promised another $500,000 were turned down and in their six years of life it is estimated that the guardians have rejected offers worth $1,500,000. Ptobably they know less about . the war than most Canadian chil dren of their age. Even so, and in spite of the fact that they have been permitted to see no soldiers and hear no talk of the war, their official guardian. Perry D. Wilson,; and their board of guardians are anxious to employ the children and their resources in some at tempt to assist the Allied cause. What form this will take not been determined. As a minor war effort along “constructive lines which follow . the general plan of their education Page Three it is planned that they will fold bandages for the Red Cross. They already have been folding paper during schoolroom periods ami the , transition to bandages will be j simple and also have publicity value.—Exchange. ; COMMUNITY CHURCH E. M Ward.
