PAGE FOtfK HOPE STAR, HOPE, Animal Husbandry Gets New Meaning Under Air Raid Threats in British Isles By MLTON BRONNER NBA Scrvce Statt Correspondent LONDON — What air raid wardens •arc to humans In case a British city Is attacked by German bombers, Na- Jional Animal Guards, enrolled by the National Air Raid Protection Animals Protection Commtitee will be to the dumb pets and servants of man. It is a tremendous task because, •while panick humans can be reasoned with, a panicky dog or a terrified horse is a danger to thc community. The special guards are being recruited from animal lovers who will look after panic-stricken or gassed animals. It is hoped in an animal guard in each block. First aid ports wilt be equipped with mobile units which, after an nir raid, can be rushed to the aid of injured animals. Identity disks are to be tied to such household pets as cats and dogs. Bromides for Pets Greater London, which includes a radius 15 miles around Charing Cross and thus includes real farms has an animal population of 40.000 horses. 9,000 cattle, 6000 sheep. 18,000 pigs, 400,000 dogs and 1,500,000 cats. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has issued a booklet advising pet owners what to do. As animals are not- going to be allowed to be taken into public air raid shelters, pet owners are advised to have their own home shelters into which they can take dumb friends. If a dog is a highly nervous one, in case of an air raid, the animal bromides or aspirin. A special kind of car flap is also recommended which will prevent the dog from hearing thc noise of anti-aircraft gun fire. Animals differ smoewhat from humans in their reaction to gas. Tear and nose gases leave them quite unmoved But phosgene, chlorine, mustard and Lewisite are as dangerous to animals as to man. It is pointed out that no satisfactory gas mask has been invented which twill protect cats, dogs or horses. It is true in the last world war some messenger dogs, specially trained, did use masks. But they were the exceptions. Served in Lost War As in the last world war, so in this one. the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals expects to do an immense amount of work. When the last war broke out, the society volunteered its services to the War Department. They were declined with thanks. But the small Army Veterinary Corps soon found it could not cope with the war problems' of animals. The army had an immense number of horses and mules. many of which became sick or were . injured, t was possible to save them j organized by the Rev. Owen H. Whit- i er or landlord.

Faces Problem Of Rehabilitating Stranded Farmers By BRUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON—In a scrub-timbered tract on the banks of the Little Black River in Butler county, Missouri, there is a "lost colony" of four or five hundred people who are. collectively, a headache to their neighbors, an unsolved puzzle to the Department of Agriculture and an active worry to one of the C. I. O.'s most energetic unions. This colony is made up of the fam-i' ous "hunger march" that drew headlines in southeastern Missouri last winter. That march to nowhere was broken up. or petered out. after it briefly focused attention on the plight of the dispossessed sharecropper and tenant fanner. When the end came about 100 families clung together. They had no money, no homes, no prospects and no place to go. and the authorities were ordering them to "move on." Ex-Preacher Led March them. It can make food grants, but that's ju.st a day-to-day stopgap.

B, Hayton on November 3rd, 1939. There were eight old members, one new member, nnd two visitors present. The a^ent nnd president both being nbsent, the Irrteet- ing was directed by the secretary, Mrs. Lee Garland. The response to the roll call was naming a new dish for Thanksgiving dinner. After the devotional and the reading of the minutes a short business session was held. It wasvotcd to keep the $15 won nt the fair in the treasury to be used as the club advised. Officers were elected for the coming year as follows: Mrs, F. B. Fenwick. president; Mrs. Lee Garland, vice president; Mrs. John Urrey. treasurer and secretary; Mrs. Goad, reporter; Mrs. Carroll Schoolcy, recreational leader; Mrs. Uuffin White and Mrs. Carrol Allen, program chairman; the other leaders are to be appointed at the December meeting. Mrs. Garland gave a rcceipe on how to make a persimmon loaf or pudding which promised to be very delicious when made. Also a demonstration on how to make lovely winter bouquets frr.'irf things grown on the place, such as hi-gear, sorghum, goards, balsam, apples, red peppers, etc. During the social period games were played. The hostess served a delicious plate with hot chocolate which was enjoyed by all. The meeting adjourned to meet with Mrs. Goad on Blcvins Highway on December 1st. Everyone is to bring a hoincnuidc gift for the Christmas tree.

In the end, it ran 13 haspitals with accom- moditations for 13,500 horses. Each hospital had its operating rooms, forage barn and dressing sheds. It also had a convalescent depot for horses recovering from wounds. For the present war, the Army Council has recognized th society" as the only one to assist the army. In spite of the great mechanization of modern armies, there will still be large numbers of horses and mules with the British Expeditionary Force in France. They will be carefully looked after as in the last war. Hitler is already having his troubles in Czechoslovakia, The Czechs apparently don't appreciate being saved from the menace of liberty.

CTI this tract the 100 families camped out sometime in June. They have been there ever since—living in tents, log huts and makeshift shacks. They haven't land enough to do any farming, and they haven't thc equipment anyway. They haven't any money, except for a icvi who managed to get jobs during the cotton picking season. They have lived, according to reports to the cannery union headquarters here, almost solely on corn grits, 'meal and beans furnished by the Surplus Commodities Corporation. Local authorities don't want them— can't afford to keep them on relief, pointing out that the wanderers came from distant parts of the state anyway. Their presence makes for friction, especially since a number of the families are colored. Further-more, thc cotton picking season will end soon, and the camp may draw yet more- casual farm workers whose jobs are finished. -No Authority to Provide Land Agriculture 1 :; Farm Security Administration doesn't know what to do with beU. "Just keeping these people from starving doesn't solve the real problem," he says. There are thousands and thousands of people like these. The situation hasn't changed much from the situation which led to the original hunger rrjarch a year ago, "Thc government is trying to turn enough help to the cotton growers to enable them to make a fair profit. But it has never put in a guarantee that a fair share of this financial help would go to thc non-owning producers. "There ought to be new legislation. First, there should be real guarantees that sharecroppers and tenants get their share of thc benefit checks. "There ought to be a provision that benefit checks would not be given to landowners who didn't pay their help an adequate minimum wage. "And—since work in the cotton fields is bound to be seasonal—there must be more adequate relief for workers in the off season." Alone—and the Other Fellers Are Out Having Fun C. S.
