Renegade Dies With Boots on Old Buffalo Holds His Own for Over 17 Years Wide World Features PHOENIX, Ariz. — Old Renegade, one-ton .buffalo outlaw, died ns he had lived — fighting. For 17 years the bull held his own against all comers in the stale-owned buffalo herd that roams the wind swept mesas of House Rock Valley, north of Grand Canyon. But five years aog his supremacy was challenged by a younger bull. After hours of lunging, goring, pi ound-shaking battle, the old bull was defeated. Winded, slashed, his mane dripping with blood and his breating tampered by broken ribs, he quit the herd for good. Known since then as Old Renegade, he ranged alone on the sagebrush ridges and cedar breaks under Buckskin Mountain. His disposition grew worse. He began tearing down cattlemen's fences and charging horsemen whenever he encountered them. Old Renegade became a ton of nuisance .Tli,e only redeeming feature was that tye was a perfect specimen of buffalo. The Arizona game and fish commis- Eipn, legally his guardipn, decided everyone concerned would be bet- ter off with Old Renegade eliminated. Accordingly, it authorized Ted tliger, Mesa, Ariz., hunter, naturalist and taxidermist, to kill the old bull. After two days of hunting with automobiles and horses Sliger parly found Old Renegade in a canyon. H,D began shaking his head and showing fight when he discovered riders. He was charging a mounted hunter when Sliger brought him down with a bullet from B high-powered rifle. It required two hours and ten minutes for an expert crew to skin and quarter the carcass. The 17-inch curved horns were 28 inches apart between the tips and 14 inches in circumference at the base. The hide was an inch thick between the eyes and was covered wilh a I prime coal of shaggy hair 12 lo 14 inches long in the mane and back of the legs. When mounted, t)ie head of Old Renegade will be displayed at Arizona state fairs as an outstanding specimen of the buffalo which once roamed the western plains by the millions.

Peanuts Prove Market Value Should Plant Where Cotton Dies From Root Knot "What can we do wilh very sandy areas where cotton dies ouf froir) attacks of root knot and cotton wilt*" In reply to this question that has been asked many times, -Oliver L-. Adams, county agent, se',d that "during the present emergency, at least) peanuts may prove a very good crop for such soils, provided the soils are suitable for peanut growing in other respects." Accoi'ding to information recived from V. H. Yound of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, peanuts are vary tolerant of root knot, and are generally almost entirely free of the disease. In North Carolina, he , said, peanuls have been found to corir • trol root knot almost as well as clean fallowing the soil. "Since there is a real demand fof peanuts at the present time," the plant pathologist said, "farmers may well consider using sandy root-knot areas, including garden spots that are . no longer profitable because of root ' knot, as areas for planting peanuts." fn' • It once was the costom to wear the ' wedding ring on the thumb in England.

The stinker in the whole business is that Congress has for years been ap- propraling funds which made il possible for Uncle Sam lo become the biggest producer of short subjects in the world. The production is so scal- tcrcd through Ihe scores of government departments that il would be impossible lo even estimate the number of pictures Uncle S;nn has produced, but there is hardly an unusual or interesting activity of the government thai hasn't ben put on film. These guneriilly are referee! to as "documentary films," but not all of them would qualify under Ihe strictest definition of that term. Many of them are as simply informative and propagandist as the Donald Duck opus. The government "documentaries" really come to public attention some years aijo when Pure Lorenlz, the one- lime muvie critic, produced several pictures, including "The Plow That Broke the Plains" and "The River.,, Since then, the stream has been a steady one. The point is that if Con- l/ress is goint to crack down on Ihis form of letting the public see what is going on behind the scenes of government, and the war effort, it had better move fast. That little stream of "documentaries" is bursting out of its banks. We already have such films as "Women In War Work," with Katharine Hep- burn reading the script by Mrs. Roosevelt; "Bomber," the story of construction of a war plane, with comments by Carl Sandburg; and Orsen Welles, the original radio man from Mars, telling the story of "Tanks." Walt Disney's efforts with Donald Duck are just a small parl of Ihe Warhington film business. Directors Frank Capra, William Wyler and John Ford are all spending a lot of time here making pictures for the Army und Navy and Marine corps. Garsin Kiinin is doing some work for OEM, ] and Producer Kenneth MacGowan is' directing the production of films here for consumption in South and Central America as part of our Inter-American affairs campaign. -»q> ***• Sunday Paper Added by P.

Our Daily Bread (Continued From Page One) permit nny landlord to profiteer in rents ul the expense of defense workers, families of men in the armed services, and civilian residents of defense areas. To meet the situation—Bureau of Labor Statistics reports rents have risen from 1 to 20 per cent in some places—Henderson has established defense areas. In these, his office will apply the curbs if rents continue higher than a cat's back. Few property owners will oppose Henderson's stand. Landlords are entitled to a fail- return oi) their investment, and most of them get it. But at a time of national emergency when it is either hang together or hang separately, no one should be permitted to gouge a fellow citizen. Especially is this true in areas most vital to the victory drive. Workers making the tanks, guns, planes and ammunition must have healthy, comfortable living quarters if they are to do their best work. Patriotic landlords in many communities already have met the challenge by co-operating with fair-rent committees, moving voluntary to ad just their charges to the July 1, 1941, level. This will bring rents in most towns and cities into agreement with the price control bill. Authoritative and hard-handed imposition of strict rent ceilings will result, Washington hints, unless property owners and local committees handle the situation. Henderson does not now have absolute rent-control power, but there is little reason to think he could not get it. Of interest in this respect was the early action of the legislature of Hawaii. Ivjany believed Washington, D. C., was the first to do something other than complain about rents, but Hawaii got a rent control bill in October, 1941. Shortly thereafter lent control became a fact in Honolulu. Thus the first Ameri.can city to fee) the blast of Japanese bombs apparently was the first to feel the shock of bounding rents and take action. Remember Pearl Harbor, yes, but for renters, landlords and roomers, Remember Honolulu! Josef Hofmann, world-famous pianist, made a concert tour of Amerila at the age of 10.
