8 THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, November 3. 1961 Active Members, Support Help 4-H Club To Grow By MARGARET TURNER Rambling Rancbers 4-H Club On the first of January, the Rambling Ranchers 4-H Club will have its eleventh birthday. The club was organized in January, 1950, with 19 members. Muriel Bonine was the first president, and Etta Fay Smith, secretary and treasurer. Ira Bonine and Mrs. Timmonds Ross were communitv leaders. Mrs. Lawrence Lundstedt was project leader. The club included the Wycoff. Mud Creek and' Chippawa communities. Since the club started in January, it received only the charter the first year, and the secretary's books were lost. In 1951 the club had grown to 23 members with 37 exhibits at the county fair. Since that time the club has continued to grow. Each year it has added new members, more projects, became more active in county activities and increased the number of project leaders. Rock Springs 4-H camp was once attended by only one or two members. In recent years al- Interpreting The News 4 Tough Stalinism' Used By Kremlin By WILLIAM L. RYAN Associated Press News Analyst PARIS (AP)—The new Kremlin pressure on Finland and Scandinavia reflects the results of the 22nd Soviet Communist party congress in which the Red leadership, having destroyed the Stalin legend, turns more and more to tough Stalinism in foreign policy. This paradox — reviving Stalinism on the world front and turning away from it domestically— indicates that the Kremlin, having backed off from the perilous Berlin crisis, intends to keep the world political pot boiling. This raises new storm signals for the West. While the Kremlin can be expected to grab whatever it can from "mutual defense" talks with Finland, the West now will be obliged to stay alert to the possibility that the new Soviet thrust is at least two-pronged. There is a disinct possibility that the pressure on Finland and Scandinavia also is a diversion in preparation for a move elsewhere, and a good bet is that Iran will be the target. These moves are going to take time. The Soviet Communist party is going to have to digest the sensational developments of the 22nd congress. These were bound to have shocking effects, both on the Soviet public and on the world Communist movement. The congress resulted in a public airing of the crimes of the Stalin era. The congress also produced the spectacle of a battle within the world Communist camp, with Red China arrayed on the side of tiny and defiant .Albania against the Soviet colossus. Thus the thrust toward Scandinavia can have yet another purpose—to deflect world attention from the internal convulsions of communism and provide time to bring the Red Chinese to heel. Peiping seems to have little choice, in the long run, but to go along with Moscow's leadership, however unpalatable it might be It is noteworthy that in the program adopted by the 22nd congress, an article frequently stressed by Premier Khrushchev himself warns world communism to prepare for quick shifts of policy in the global cold war. Tt became necessary to back off from Berlin because the spark of World War III definitely was there, and the Kremlin was not prepared to fan it into flame. most every member attended camp if he was old enough. Last year the club presented a model meeting, three folk games, chorus and several demonstrations and project talks at the Spring Festival. We were pleased to have one of our members, Hurst Coffman, win the talent show last year. Members also took part in style revue and 'best groomed boy contest, junior lead ership and county fair, and several members received county awards at the achievement pro gram. As we enter the new club year we will have nine members eligible for junior leadership. An active program in recreation has helped to keep older members in terested. Last year for the firsl time our club sponsored a coun ty-wide square dance party. In September this year the club held its annual achievemen meeting.

Walker, stripped of his divisional command, says he is quitting the Army because "I must be free from the power of little men who, in the name of my country, punish loyal service to it." Walker's decision to leave the Army was announced Thursday in a statement supplied to a Senate Armed Services subcommittee. The 51-year-old West Point graduate defended what he saw as a duty to speak out on communism and he will pass up retirement pay of more than $12,000 a year. Walker said he was taking leave of military duty "with a heavy heart" and would "find other means of serving my country in the time of her great need, in order lo pursue the dedication of a lifetime." Later, in San Antonio, Tex., where his mother lives, Walker, a bachelor, declined to say whether he expected to enter politics. He said he was not ready to say, adding: "When my plans do develop I suspect I may have some statements to make."

(AP) — Flying a zig-zag course that demonstrated its ability to withstand violent wind gusts, a Pershing artillery missile has scored its 21st success in 23 test firings. The missile darted 250 miles down range Thursday night. Preplanned erratic maneuvers were built into the controls to test the ability of the inertial guidance system to return the missile to proper course. O'Dea; secretary -treasurer, Rodney Fritts, and public Fallout Shelters On MU Campus COLUMBIA (AP)-The University of Missouri has designated underground passageways and basements of new buildings to serve as 14 fallout shelters. A committee has drafted plans of warning and action for such disasters as tornado, flood, fire, blizzard, riot and enemy altack. Construction of missile bases around Whiteman Air Force Base puts Columbia close to a critical target area and makes the disaster plan necessary, President Elmer Ellis said.

Brown 9 s Bylines 7 Varieties Top Premium Value In State Wheat Test Bus Drivers Vote To Strike KANSAS CITY (AP)-Bus drivers have voted more than 10 to 1 o strike against Kansas City Transit Inc., a union official said. No date for a strike was set. Negotiations for a new contract will continue. Loren Hargus, president of Local 1287, Amalgamated Association of Street Electric Railway and Motor Coach Employes, said a strike "will be called when our negotiating committee feels it has no other alternative." The voting started Tuesday and was finished Thursday night. Hargus said nearly 800 of the eligible members voted. By JK)N BROWN In tests at Kansas State University to determine the protein content and sedimentation values of wheats commonly grown in Kansas, seven varieties exceeded he value of 40 on which premiums are to be paid on 1962- crop wheat. Dr. John A. Johnson, of the K- State flour and feed milling industries department, made t h e ests. The protein and sedimenla- ion tests were run on wheat produced this e a r at K- State's branch experiment sta- ion and fields. The average s e d i m e n- lation value ranged from 65 at Dodge City and Garden City to 24 at Powhattan. The average for all locations was 45. The average protein content for all varieties at the Colby station was 15.4 per cent. The lowest average protein content, 9.8 per cent, was at St. John. The overall average protein content for all stations and fields was 11.9 per cent. Sedimentation values and protein per cent in Johnson's tests at Kansas State University are as follows with the protein listed first and the sedimentation value second: Bison, 12.2 and 51; Kaw. 12.8 and 49; Ottawa. 12.9 and 49; Rodeo, 12.8 and 49; Triumph, 12.6 and 47; Tascosa, 11.4 and 46; Ponca, 11.3 and 43; Wichita, 11.7 and 39. and Pawnee, 11.1 and 37. Don Browa Farm Agent The announcement of the premiums was made after many farmers had purchased their sup- ply of seed. You may want to follow the progress of one or mort of the top varieties listed. The gluten quality of varieties •>uch as Bison are evident in the edimentation values. Even though he protein content of Bison, in his instance, was lower than that >f Triumph, the sedimentation reading was higher. These tests also indicate that the so-called mellow gluten varieties, such as [Yiumph and Ottawa, can quali- y for premiums based on sedimentation tests, if the protein con- ent is high enough. The advisability of planting strong gluten varieties as assurance of high sedimentation values is obvious from this study by Johnson. I realize that most of our wheat has been planted for this year. 820 School Plans Drug Building KANSAS CITY (AP)-The Uni versity of Kansas City will construct a $600,000 pharmacy building, Dr. Carleton F.
