esLJa teli .me WESTERN KANSAS By BETH UILLEY It isn't very long until pheasant season opens. The beautifully plummed creatures can be ! seen strutting up and down the | highways and roads in all most j any Southwest Kansas county. These tasty fowl ar e smarter than most hunters give them credit for. The first day of pheasant, season the birds are quite plenti- | ful. But the remaining days find the pheasants hiding. This caused one fella to comment, "I should not wonder if those birds hold classes .on how to out-fox the hunters." Dewey Unruh who farms northeast of' Leoti in Wichita County, said he raised two huge red potatoes in this year's crop. The vegetables weighed 1 pound, 15 ounces, and 1 pound, 11 ounces. 'Taters that size would just about make a meal for a good size family. Alfred Stcitz of Syracuse has no doubt as to what wonderful friends his neighbors are. Alfred entered Donohue Memorial Hospital last week with 360 acres of milo to be cut. Steitz is still hospitalized— but his crop is harvested. T w e n t y-one farmers brought in 14 combines, nine trucks and several of their hired hands to help harvest the crop.

Karen was the other queen candidate. The student body elected the queen by vote. • Breeding's Message to Japanese Hit by Dole J. David Sullivan, who farms northwest of Ulysses, agrees with other Uiysses farmers that almost any kind of crop can be grown in Grant County soil. Sullivan is displaying a tall stalk of an unusual plant with .long and wide leaves. Said he was given several of the shoots from a southern hunter and decided I economy of the' United States, to plant them. Come to find out the plants are tobacco. Sullivan says he isn't going to ask for any tobacco acreage allotment though. He grew them just for the oddity of it. A telegram sent to the head of a visiting group of Japanese government officials by Cong. J. Floyd Breeding came in for sharp criticism today from his November opponent. Cong. Bob Dole, campaigning in this area, termed the visit of the Japanese wheat mission as a significant event, not only to Kansas wheat growers but to the "Japan has developed into a first-class market for U.S. farm products, particularly wheat. In the past six months, more than 10 million bushels of hard red winter wheat from western Kansas and adjoining states have moved to Japan, and the Japanese government sent this top- level mission to discuss continued purchses," he stated, and added: Page 8 Clly T<«l Saturday, October 20, 1962 today... in Garden City Hospitals The old adage ."third time's charm" didn't prove so for Scott City firemen this week. A fire siren blew and the three trucks went out to find the blaze. First report said there was a fir e at 401 Washington. This proved to be the Weinmann Funeral Home — no fire. So, firemen tried 401 North Washington — Again — no fire. In the meantime a little girl told them sh e thought it v/as an abandoned house at 505 North Washington, and the trucks moved again — no fire. Anyway, the would-be fire fighters had good exercise. Most all area farmers will have their milo harvest completed or j nearly so by the first frost. This is quite unusual as the first frost is generally the green light for the _ grain sorghum harvest to get in to full swing. Many record yields are being recorded all ready. One farmer near Ulysses said he thought he planted "bad" seed — he is getting only 99 bushels to the acre and his neighbors were reporting 110 bushels. Better luck next year. Area Eagle Scouts Will Be Honored The Santa Fe Trail Council of City, council president, will wel- "It was unfortunate, therefore that Congressman Floyd Breeding used this occasion for partisan political purposes. By sending a telegram to the Japanese mission and attempting to convey the idea that wheat exports to Japan was controversial, he therefore risked damage to our relationships with Japan." "The message in the telegram wa s indefensible and in extremely poor taste. If Congressman Breeding v were sincerely interested in seeking the goodwill of the Japanese mission and in increasing exiport sales to Japan, he might have sent a simple message of greeting. Instead, he attempted to exploit their visit to his own political advantage." Boy Scouts of America will honor the Eagle Scouts Sunday with the first annual Baigle convocation to be in Dodge City. Dr. E.L. Braddock, memorial class of Eagle Scouts, said ceremonies will begin at 2:30 p.m. at the Oddfellows Hall. The invocation will be given by Dr. Richard Yaple of Cimarron. Arthur M.
