GREAT NUMBER OF CHANGES NEAR LUVERNE LUVERNE--More farms have been purchased by local farmers during the past year in this vicinity than there has been for a num- Woman Has nsatiable Appetite KANSAS CITY, Mo., U.R--Mrs. )orothy Barber, 20, wife of a VPA worker, was slowly eating erself to death. She ate and ate and ate while hysicians at General hospital, rankly puzzled by her case, made lumerous tests in an effort to ar- ive at a true diagnosis. They said he would die unless her strange bnormal appetite could be sati- ,ted or it be returned to normal, Mrs. Barber appeared at the lospital clinic Wednesday night, munching a candy bar, and told ~t a year of misery in which she vas always hungry but never sat- sfied. Eats During- Night 'I want to eat all the time," she said. "Why. I can finish a norma) meal and be back in the kitchen n 10 minutes, eating again. My appetite becomes especially bad at night. I have to get up severa times to eat." Although she personally has consumed enough food in a yea to feed a normal family of 10, sht has lost 25 pounds in that time Normally a stout woman, she nou weighs 104 pounds. Dr. R. K. Simpson, who is in charge ot ner case, said it might be three or four days before a true diagnosis could be determined. Meanwhile, she begs for food and is fed, every few minutes. · Digestive Juices Active From his observations so far, STUDENTS WILL PUBLISH PAPER Iowa Falls Citizen to Be in Hands of Collegians for Week IOWA FALLS--Students in the school of journalism at the Iowa State college at Ames will take charge of the editing and publishing of the Iowa Falls Citizen during the week of March 20. The of four weekly the state chosen Simpson said, it was indicated she has a rare condition of the pancreas which causes a low blood sugar count and an abnormal flow of digestive juices. He said it was the first case of its kind to come to his attention. Simpson believed his patient's pancreas would have to be adjusted through an operation but could not be certain until various tests had been analyzed and consultations held. He explained, however, that the appetite is not controled solely by secretions of the pancreas but by secretions of a number of, organs and that some of these, in Mrs. Barber's case, probably also must be adjusted. Her appetite at the hospital played no favorites. She had no cravings, eating what was placed before her, ravenously. Citizen is one newspapers in as newspaper plants where the students may gain experience , in the practical operation of papers similar to those ttiey hope eventually to associate with. The other papers are the Eagle Grove Eagle, the Fayette County Union at West Union and the Scott County Tribune at Wolcott. This is the second time in three years the Citizen has been chosen for this sort of instruction. The work of the group that will publish the two editions of the Citizen will be in charge of Rodney Fox, formerly news editor on the paper and now on the faculty of the school of journalism at Iowa State. Tentatively, the staff in charge of the staff that will work here will be George Spaies, now business manager of the Iowa State Student, the college paper, as business manager, and Ed Jones, the Iowa State basketball star, as editor. The rest of the staff will be students assigned to take over the business office, the editorial pages and news features. The work will be divided to include the society editor, sports editor, reporters and feature writers. Auto Accessories 62 FOR SALE--5.00x19 K n o b b y tires. Like new.

Police put the casualties at 48 killed, 32 probably fatally injured, and 440 seriously injured. Eight hundred homes were burned and more than 8,000 persons were homeless as the result of fires which the explosion caused. Cause Not Determined There were rumors that many people disappeared in the explosion, but these rumors were discounted because of the official police announcement, which was repeated in parliament here by Gen. Seishiro Itagaki, war minister. Itagaki said that it had been impossible to establish the cause of the explosion but that a minute investigation was in progress. He said he assumed gun powder exploded. The suggestion was made also that a workman had dropped a bomb. Now Under Control Whatever the cause, the result was that first one great munitions dump exploded and that others near it exploded one by one. A strong wind spread fire to adjacent buildings, and the flames were brought under control only at 3 a. m. Thursday. General Itagaki, in his parliament statement, said: "The explosion in no way interferes with Japan's military operations." Vice War Minister Gen. Masataka Yamawaki, accompanied by staff officers, left for Osaka Thursday to take charge of the official investigation. Three policemen were killed while fighting the fires which the explosion caused, and many policemen, firemen and soldiers were injured. URGE RENEWED SAFETY VIGOR Decline in Rate of "Life Saving" Seen by National Council CHICAGO, «J.R--The National Safety Council called for renewed vigor in traffic safety campaigns Thursday after noting a decline in the nation's "life saving" rate. The council reported there were 2,500 traffic deaths in the nation | during January, 160 less than during the first month of 1938, but a 6 per cent decline from the rate of improvement maintained during 1938. "There is need for a continued aggressive traffic accident prevention program if a reversal of the downward trend is to be avoided," the council warned. 13 to 25 Per Cent Less During all of 1938, the council reported, monthly fatality totals ranged from 13 to 25 per cent under the figures for corresponding months of 1937. January was the fifteenth consecutive month in which fatalities were lower than during the corresponding month of the previous year. 'Council records showed that during those 15 months starting with November, 1937, there had been 8,500 fewer traffic deaths than during any comparable period. It listed each reduction as a life saved. "The percentage o£ improvement in January was well below those recorded in previous months," the council said- Factors Are Listed Factors in the reduced improvement, the council reported, ineluded: 1. The decrease from December to January was only 23 per cenff as compared to an average decline of 27 per cent between those two months during the last five years. 2. The decreases were not so universal as in earlier months. Of 37 reporting states, only 20 showed reductions while 15 had more deaths this January than a year ago. "The national improvement this year would have exceeded 6 per cent," the council said, "If rural areas had shown as much improvement as cities." DIES FROM INJURIES LE MARS, tiP)--Injuries resulting from a mill accident nearly two years ago resulted in the death of Robert M. Neubrand, 58, resident here since 1920. Funeral services will be held Saturday morning. GETS 5 YEAR TERM WATERLOO, (iP)~D i s t r i c t Judge A. B. Lovejoy sentenced Ralph S.
