Let's take a trip over there and see how many of the animals we recognize in this snowy setting . 1. The animal in the zoo with the longest neck cun't make a sound and it isn't because it has laryngitis. What is its name and why isn't it in good vocic? 2. One of the birds in the zoo dotes on winter weather, and looks like it's dressed formal for it. What is it? 3. While it's winter here, it's summertime back home for a certain jumping animal that carries its young in a pouch. Name this one and tell where it comes from. 4. Biggest of the zoo's birds flaps its wings in the summertime to keep cool and has a kick like a horse. It doesn't need to flap its wings now, but can you name it? 5. A certain animal thinks this is all very funny, and laughs quito hysterically. Name it.

NII "Wur Boom" Prices You're not being asked to step up productio nof Ihc vital farm products and lake a risk on the price. The basic crops, cotton, wheat, corn, rice, and tobacco have a floor under them at 85 per cent of parity, established by the loan rate. Cheese, dried skim milk, evaporated milk, hogs, eggs and chickens, are supported at 85 per ccnl of parity by purchases. There is reason to believe that the demand for most farm commodities will hold prices well above the supporting level. Supplies of feed are adequate and the ratio of feed cost to the price of livestock products is favorable to increased production. 1 don't think farmers want to see farm proccs skyrocket, as they did in World War I. Too many of us lost our shirts and our farms in the crash that followed the last war. We are anxious to avoid it again. We want parity prices, but we'll not push for more than parity. That is my interpretation of the sentiment of most farmers, and it is the basis on which the policies of the Department of Agriculture are founded. Abundant production to meet urgent needs is the request the nation makes of you; the reward parity prices for farm products. go necessary to putting the entire job in such Mate that it may be used, has accomplished. Forty facilities on the project are 80 per cent complete, and to dale there ar« thirty-one facilities which arc between Gl per cent and 87 per cent completed, with eighteen «ddit- ional^ facilities between 31 per cent cent complete.

Construction of the sewer and water systems has reached the point whore ail lines are in the ground and completion of tho entire systems is progressing on or better than schedule. The electrical distribution system has been pushed to the extent that il is now approximately 70 pel cent complete. With favorable weather, seven or eight more working days should sec the runways at the airport poured, and probably the most tedious end of airport construction thereby accomplished. All employees on the project are responding in a most gratifying manner to the invitations to purchase defense bonds and stamps. No effort toward promoting the sale has been taken on the project other than having them available on the reservation. Arrangements were made with the post master of Hope, whereby the stamps and bonds could be sold on the project, and many employees are taking advantage of the convenience offered by this arrangement. In the past four days personnel employed on the project have laid close to $1500 on the line for purchase of these defense issues. With only four more shopping days -intil Christmas, employees of the W. E. Callahan Construction Com- iany went into town this week with nore than ?228,000 in their pockets.
