RECEIVE RULING FOR OBTAINING SUGAR IN THRESHING SEASON A new ruling has been received by the Rationing Office concerning farmers receiving extra sugar for threshers. The following rules have been set forth: 1. That farmers may be allowed according to the one-half pound per week per person ratio. (Note—If seven men were to eat at one home for one day It would equal one man eating there for seven days and the amount of sugar allowed would be one-half pound). 2. That threshers must relinquish their sugar stamps at these places unless they were not allowed looks. Members of the board state this would be difficult to do unless meals were taken at one place for several days consecutively. They suggest that the threshers bring thefltr sugar along.

T FOR VICTORY SPRINGS TO LIFE IN DUCKS-POTATOES "V's" for Victory have been found In almost every form of animal, vegetable and mineral life In this section, and some of the more prominent merit mention. Recently someone left In Humboldt a potato that had grown into a perfect "V". It looked very much like two potatoes joined at t>ne- end of'eaoh,'--*v...-^.-i,j ; .-,'..;> The latest and perhaps tlie most interesting is a small duck only a few days old that was brought to Humboldt by Mrs. Ora Landmesuer of Gllmore City. This little "Donald the Dunk" was, as said, only a 'ew days old. His color was a bright golden and his only mark was a jet black "V" with Its point at the tip of his bill and the two >ars extending back over his head above the eyes. "Donald" was a beautiful little fellow and he car- •ied his "V" In grand fashion, and n the manner of ducks managed to uake himself heard and seen con- tantly. The newspaper man thought It would be a grand stunt to get a icture of "Donald's" "V" plainly howlng, and with that thought in nlnd went to the Molander studio nd attempted to have Mrs. Mo- ander focus the big cameras on Ira. If you never tried to hold a small uuk still so that a clear picture f the top of Us head could be holographed, you "ain't been nowhere and ain't seen notbin' ". Donald" was on the move con- tuutly, his head was bobbing, uckiug, twisting and jerking, and 11 the time he kept up a constant alible that was both confusing and ntertainlug. We didn't get a ugiitijlj of iliu "V" uu his bead, or a clear view even "Donald's" ace, and so will have to ask you o take the newspaper man's word that "Donald" Is a grand duck even 1C he la small, and that be la a wonderful golden color and has a splendid "V" tvr victory of the glossiest jet blank you ever saw on the top of his bead, and that be lias a musical if constant voice, and la a very lively and lovely little duck just the same. If the Allies can keep their intents from Hitler as well as "Donald" kept this "V" from the camera, the war Is won. 0. J. Olson, prominent farmer living south of Humboldt in Corinth township, and a one-time Humboldt County supervisor, passed away at his home suddenly Saturday morning, death being due to a heart attack.
