'' i, General Douglas MacArthur has the most successful Allied r* Prices received by dairy farmers for butter should not be affected by the "rollback" in retail prices ordered by the Office of Price Administration and farmers should receive at least as high a price for their gutter as they received prior to the 'rollback," Earl N. Martindale, chairman of the Hempstead County USDA War Board, said in discussing the butter situation. The commitment of the Department of Agriculture to support wholesale prices of butter at levels equivalent to 46 cents per pound, he said, will be carried through until at least June 30, 1944. After that time the price will be supported at a level at least 90 percent of parity until two years after the end of the war. The RFC is financing a subsidy to minimize any loss which might occur to trade inventories from the 'roll-back." The subsidy is 5 cents month in which the manufacture took place. Q. What is the meaning of "butter" as used under this order? A. 'Butter' means a food product usually known as butter and which is made exclusively from milk or cream, or both, with or wilhou salt, and with or without additiona coloring matter, and containing no less than 80 percent by weight o milk fat, all tolerance having been allowed. It shall not include adulterated butter or renovated or processed butter. this crew: V. A. DRUMB, ENGINEE V. R Drumb, Jr., fireman; R. L Drumb, conductor, and twins, Leo and Elmo Drumb, brak'emen.

Dog Wa'tch Colorado Springs, Colo. — A shepherd dog has remained beside an cquesrtian statue for two clays and nights. Frequently he walks out into the street, gazes up at the statue of William S.

First of all he is 1 an American, and another Ameri•can general is in supreme com- mand in Africa; besides Australia 'must be defended, and the en• trenched Japanese must be driven 'back from their island bases in that South Pacific area. India is part of the British empire. It would not be logical for an American to be assigned to this post. The Japanese have had a great deal more to do with the present unrest in India than is known gen- "' erally. Mitsuru Toyama, the evil old man who runs Japan's secret societies, has subsidized rebellious 1 Indians for years. He works on the . theory that any man who opposes ' 'the government may be valuable ' r to him, and to "Japan. In the past " several of India's trouble - makers ( have found a haven in his secluded , , Tokyo home until it was safe for 'them to return.

We need Burma back, first of per pound to creameries making 1,000 pounds or more per month. Mr. Martindale also stressed the need for keeping the present high milk production as long as possible. The following questions and answers give some information on the butter "roll-back" that is of interest to farmers: Q. Are persons manufacturing farm butter eligible for the rollback subsidy? A. Farm butter production is not eligible .for the roll-back subsidy. However, if a large dairy farmer produces more than 1,000 pounds of butter in any month of the calendar year, that person is eligible all, as a route to China. But JJurma also is an important source ' at food, particularly rice, for India and the loss of these supplies would be a severe blow to the Japanese. for the roll-bacK subsidy for the butter produced during the month in which production exceeded the limit of 1,000 pounds. Q. Why is the roll-back subsidy limited to those manufacturers producing more than 1,000 pounds per month? A. For administrative reasons it was determined impractical to include those butter producers of less than 1,000 pounds per month; also, the limitation of 1,000 pounds per month represents the minimum average of commercial production. Q. How does this subsidy affect assemblers and co-ops? A. The 5 cent roll-back subsidy will be paid to any person svhich manufactures butter without regard to where the milk or cream is obtained. Q. From which agency will creameries be able to obtain copies of applications for butter production payments under Regulation No. 2 of Defense Supplies Corporation? A. These aplications may be obtained from the Defense Supplies Corporation's office.P. O. Box No. 6910-A, Chicago, Illinois. Q.
