Food ! £- tuts jwWiSr- Become outdated. & provide'tHe food needed by the :' r H§Hfcd States in today's war, six "Jfiillion American fanners have mo- Bllized their fields and barnyards into a huge Food-for-Frecdom campaign. The anticipated production will be the largest in U. S. history. The t aitti is to give every soldier, sailor and busy civilian of the United States and her Allies the victory-vitality that comes from three square meals 4 day. And, looking ahead to the day when the war is ended, farmers exited to be equally ready then to help hungry people of liberated countries get back on their feet. Agriculture's aims are expcrssed simply in the maxim, "Food will win the war and write the peace." Top commissions in this wartime food army have been given to familiar barnyard animals—the cow, the chicken, the pig. Also in the new quartermaster's corps is the common garden vegetable. From such sources come the foods most needed to insure maximum energy and health. In order to have some guideposts in this gigantic production job, the U. S. Department of Agriculture has set up "food-for-freedom goals." National goals were established first, based on the food needed for military purposes, civilian use, shipment to Allies, and for end-of-the- war stockpiles. These production aims were broken down into state goals, then county. Today every U. S. farmer knows what he should produce in order to make the best patriotic contribution. Milk production of 125 billion pounds seven percent more than last year, is the 1942 dairy goal. This amount of milk literally would float hundreds ,' of battleships. Egg production of 4200 million do^ zens, a 10 percent increase over 1941, / is the tremendous goal assgined the i poultry industry. This fantastic num- > ber of eggs would create an omelet far larger than the world's greatest airplane landing field. Meat production will be increased proportionately with the marketing of 10 million more hogs than last year. 2 to 3 million more beef and veal animals, and 60 million more chickens. Vegetable production is being in- creased by asking that farmers have one and a third million additional ^home gardens, and that commercial vegetable growers greatly expand 5 their fields. The biggest increases are 1 needed in green peas, cabbage, onions , and tomatoes. >Ih addition, farmers are asked to grow 50 percent more soybeans and more than double peanut acreage because of need for the valuable vege- ' table oils each contains. It's a time of dramatic expansion for virtually every- farmer in the - nation, with the possible exception of .grower sof wheat, cotton and to' bacco. They have done their jobs ' so well hi the past that huge gran- ^•aries and warehouses bulge with their commodities. Both land and labor will be most helpful today, says the Department to these farmers, if some of.it is diverted to food-for-freedom production. ' The fact that American farms are fully "tooled up" and are turning out ' record-breaking quantities of food is 6rie Of the nation's most potent wea- ' $hp, declares the Department. This ', production assures health and phys.- jcal strength for U. S. armed forces. »it assures plenty of fair-priced food - lor consumers. It gives energy to Allies. It lifts the hopes of oppressed nations whose granaries and pantries have been robbed by the Axis. Having Fun in a Blackout Favorite Game Is Quiz or Ask Me Another By LUCRECE HUDGINS AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON - There's a story going around about a lady who called up the Air Raid Warden and asked him what her family should do during an air raid. He said to play games So she called up the game warden and asked wht games they should play.

Says Thai (Continued Prom Pngc One) word may bo pronounced different ways or with different intonations or accents and each pronunciation, each inflection, each accent gives the same word a different meaning. "Thus a word might have six different meanings. The Japs may have sent with their invading forces men who think they know the Thai language, but it is doubtful they understand everything. "So, a Thailander meeting n Jap soldier, may say—'Mahn Mitrn.' On the face of it that means—'big friend.' But if that Thailander gives the words n different inflection, it means—'dog of a friend.' That's a pretty good substitute for the German "schwein- hund'." The Minister begged .Americans to reserve judgment about his country and not believe all the stories about Thailanders warmly welcoming the Japanese and proclaiming themselves as allies of Japan. He pointed out that as the Japs had control of the cable, the wireless and the mails in Thailand, no news could come out except such as was passed by the censors of the "perfidious Japancs"—his own words for them—Japanese who, he said, were proven liars in great things and small.

The presence of these officials added greatly to the interest of the meeting and served as an opportunity for information concerning operation of the plan from aulhoritalive sources. Approximately 90 per cent of the food merchants in Nevada county have expressed desire to participate by submitting their signed dealers' agreement. Indications point to a successful operation of the plan and fullest cooperation of all those participating.

They entertained Infrequently. The general's favorite form of relaxation was the movies Every weekday night found him in one of Manila's six theaters, often slccpnig through the show, but resting. As the years passed, Mat-Arthur's job became harder rather than easier. A lukewarm Philippine congress constantly pared down the $8,000,000 appropriation Mac Arthur had been promised yearly. In 1940 it was little over $1,000,000. But Uiis and other handicaps only spurred him on. Ho had faith in the Filipinos. He set out to instill them by word and action—as only MacArthur can—with the highest military traditions. "Write your history in red on the breasts of your enemy," he told them. "Only those arc fit to live who are not afraid to die for their country." Mac-Arthur's ardor with his native troops amused some of the more supercilious officers of (lie United States Army. They laughed at his title of field Marshal. "MacArthur doesn't •ate in the American Army now any nore than a buck private," they said. Suddenly MacArthur ceased to be a "buck private" to them, ceased to be amusing. When the Japs moved into Thailand and crisis mounted in the : acific, President Roosevelt recalled Wat-Arthur, as Lieut. General, to head the United States Army forces in the Far East. Now Mat-Arthur's previous work seemed like a vacation. His pace wore out men many years his junior. His aide de cnmp went to the hospital with nervous exhaustion. MacArthur raced against time. But the time was all too . short. lit was early on the morning of Monday (in Manila,) Dec 8, when lis aide routed him out of bed with the news of war. The physical moves that have followed already are history—American history in the highest traditions. MacArthur's brilliant stand has been made in the face of overwhelming odds. They were not only Jap odds—though these were probably greater than even he had expected Beginning a Valiant Stand The ten years to build Philippine defense were only half gone. The Jap blow at Pearl Harbor deprived MacArthur of protection he had every reaso nto count oh. In the face of these facts and 10-1 superiority by an enemy with control of sea, and air, MacArthur has brilliantly conserved his forces, retired to positions long prepared. Still he has taken his beloved offensice. At war for the second time in his life, Douglas MacArthur is reproving the character of his military genius. Aiding him arc the stout-hearted officers and men of the U. S. and Philippine armies. Mac-Arthur's faith in his Filipino troops has been justified. At war's start MacArlhur was everywhere at once. Busy though he was, he took time out to be seen in Manila in order to keep civilian morale high. One action alone engraved l\is name on islanders' hearts. An officer suggested that the American flag on staff headquarters might serve as a target to Jap bombers, asked about removing it. MacArthur, as usual, found words appropriate to the occasion: "Take every oilier normal precaution for the protection of the headquarters," he ordered, 'but let's keep the flag flying." Shortly before Christmas, 1941 Douglas MacArthur was made a full general for the second time in his life. Full general or not, on December 24, he made a charactristic move. Ever a brilliant soldier and gallant man, he took to the field to lead his mcn : .^ e knows better than most the significance of time in modern war; knows that every second he holds out means another second ticking towards the setting of the Rising Sun. MacArthur's future plans are no secret. He has announced them to the world—simply, dramatically, Mac- acthur-ly: "The United Slates has directed me to defend these islands, and I propose to do so."

We, theWomen , By RUTH MILLETT An army officer's wife reports there isn't much gossip going the rounds these days, since an officer is held responsible for all talk and action of liis immediate family. W It's too bad husbands in civilian life can't make their wives understand that they also are held res- ponsblo for everything their wives say. They are, too, but only the smartest (1 wives seem to realize it enough to censor their conversations accjording- ly. The others go right on losing friends, clients, patients, and customers for their husbands, without over seem- ,., ing to realize that no one wants * to do business with a man who is married to a gossip. It is just too great a risk to take, since most men talk over their business dealings with their wives. Maybe civilian husbands could '&, scare their wives into giving up gos- * sip entirely if they could show them how easy it is for a woman's talk to cut down a husband's income. If the loss were translated into clothes, furniture, or school tuition it might strike home. • I What Hubby Doesn't Know But the trouble is, few husbands know just how much their wives gossip. For though a wife may tell her husband what she heard at her bridge club, she never tells him how /v much she herself passed on. So while a man knows that women gossip a lot, he always feels that HIS wife is a listener-in—and not a passer-on of choice bits of scandal. If the average husband knew how tty much gossip his wife repeats in the course of a week, he would soon do something to stop it. For if he has any business -sense at all, he knows that it is not just army officers who arc held responsible for their wives'-, talk—it is also every man whose* living depends on others doing business with him.
