" .'"c atutucie. rew has a Uree acrun in crass anfl CU1 regulating the affairs of men. Letters already are coming to the legislator! In fairly large volume. Definite opinions are held on the subject of capital punishment, for Instance, Then there are a few new proposal being made about everything under the sun. The house seems disinclined toward introducing bills. According to Ex-Sen. Brooke Howell, of Frederick, the first week'i record was as slim as the previous low record set ln 1911. Slowness ln appointing committees might have had something to do with the paucity of legislative proposals. In previous session legislators have taken to the appropriations committee like ducks to water, but there was actually a little difficulty ln getting a senate chairman this year. Sen. Leo Heck, who held the . Job last year, was very much dis-' interested in assuming the responsibility again. Surprising. This Job has often led to political advancement. Chairman Fred Ferguson of the 1939 session, of Woonsocket, now Is a member of the board of charities and corrections, and House chairman George T. Mickelson of the same session, whose address Is Selby, has landed in the attorney general's office, i v . Sen. E. L. Stavlg, of Rosholt. who finally took the Job and will supervise the state's purse strings while trying to undo the death penalty law, Is considered highly qualified. J O- v Both Speaker O. H. Hove and Lt. Gov. A. C. Miller have spent long hours In their offices going over committee appointment matters. The Pierre statesmen also have been fighting shy of fish and game committee chairmanships. It seems they fear there is something to pro tect this time besides the pheasants ana Duimeaas, Speaking of letters, Jim Sanders of Sioux Falls has started to bombard the lawmakers. As far as is known, his first victim was Rep. Arthur Fanebust of his home city down on the silvery Sioux. Jim said he supposed Art was out'to' befuddle the farmers again. Fanebust turned the letter over to Rep. John Swen-nlng of Brookings county, chairman of the agriculture committee, probably with the idea that he ought to give fair warning to the farmers that they were due to be befuddled. The legislators have expressed the desire that Mr. Sander visit Pierre and give his ideas to them from the rostrum m as to save typewriter wear and tear. They might even go so far as to contribute toward the expense of transporting the white-haired Moses to the capital city. i Brown county has two august senators. There's the august (accent second syllable) George Ernst, the man with the four suits who doesn't even wear overalls, and then there's August Dahme, Farm Union leader. No landed aristocrat, he's a dirt farmer, and he promises a little excitement ln the present session. Both are democrats. The house of representatives believes it has more claims to farm aristocracy within Its membership than the senate, but the landed gentry there isn't SO proud as not to don overalls. One of the eminent agriculturists is Julius Thoene, of Bonesteel. who Rep. Henry W. MeU of Miranda. Faulk county, is extremely happy over the turn in agricultural conditions. A South Dakota resident since 1882. the bettr crop vindicate an abiding faith ln South Dakota. He has steadily increased hi holdings.

Sharpe have a ride ln a flying fortress. Miller replied, "Oh, no not me. If the governor goea up, I want to stay on the ground.' Al thinks of everything. IT TAKES BOTH! Seed Shortage Seen Possible Brookings Authorities Say Farmers Should Make Tests of Grain Now Brookings, Jan. 11 Possibility of a seed shortage ln Brookings county, especially in corn and barley, looms likely, according to Carl Quail of the Farmer Cooperative company and John Johnson of the George P. Sexauer company. "Late heavy rains combined with a poor quality crop will cut the grade of the seed available to farmers this year for planting ln the spring. A shortage la very possible in this section," said Quail. "A germination test should be made on all of the grain they have set aside for seed," said Johnson. "In this way, they will know Just how much seed is going to be needed for next planting season." Only by having tests made now, will the farmers be able to anticipate their needs and place orders with seed dealers, lt Is said. This year, more than ever, increased farm production Is needed under the emphasised agricultural production program in the war effort. Orders have been placed for seed by the companies and it Is expected the seed will be available at an early date. ' Alexandria Judge and Wife Celebrate Golden Wedding Mr. and Mrs. H. J.
