About 1/10 of this contribution (o the nation's food larder, office estimated, came from the midwest Indian country. Two-thirds of the reservation areas in the north central plains are composed of open grazing lands suifabie for stock raising. There cattle replace the buffalo which once the Indian followed. The Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, for example, is made up of lands typical of the great plains. .This reservation has an area of 2,056,139 acres, of which 1,752,686 are trust alloted, 256,614' tribally owned and 48,839 government owned. Indians use 742,621 acres of this land. The reservalion primarily is stock-raising country. Siuce the Indians are dependent upon the natural resources of the area, they have turned to cattle raising as the industry best adapted to their laud. The number of Indian- owned cattle 011 the Pine Ridge reservation has increased 7,104 in 1934 to 18,208 in from The value of the cattle sold in 1934 amounted to $29,000 compared with $281,824 in 1942. The Indians are improving the quality of (heir stock by selective breeding and by organizing in stockmen associations, the Indian office reported. Indian schools ill the plains are providing opportunities for Indian children to learn about stock raising by actual participation in the management of school herds, the office* said. Offspring of school herds are used to help Indian farm students start herds of their own. Indians also art; contributing to the pulpwood campaign. The stumpage value of timber cut in 1942 from the 1,015,045 acres owned by Indians in the Great Lakes state, tribally or individually, amounted to $214,231. At the Menominee agency in Wisconsin where all of the 231,788 acres-are tribally owned, the total stumpage value of timber cut in 1942 was 5154,188. Nearly all the limber cut there is finished in the Indian-owned Menominee Mills. The total sales of lumber, logs and by-products ifi 1942 amounted to $1,142,569. Hogs Reach Top of $14 DEMAND FOR SWINE STRONG Advance Reflected in All Classes of Hogs Chicago, VP)--fiog prices advanced again Tuesday, reaching a top of S14. All interest were active on reduced receipts. Trade was active on all classes of cattle, generally firm to slightly higher. Lambs sales were fully steady, but mostly under asking prices. Demand for hogs at higher prices continued strong, after topping the support price Monday for the first tune since early November. The advance was reflected in all classes with gains as much as 25 cents. The top was paid by shippers for the lighter weights of the government supported bracket, while packers showed a preference for hogs weighing under 200 pounds. Good and choice 170 to IBB pounders brought $13.25 to S13.85. Salable receipts were" cut to 20.000 head Tuesday as compared with 25.535 head unloaded a week ago, and, with no hogs held over from previous sessions, all stocks were expected to be sold.

Hardin County Hemp Growers Get Checks lou-a Falls--The first checks for be times. I sometimes curse them tnen- ^ tally; The \vhile I know kids will kids, , Not meaning to be mean Io me. Not that we should complain a heap about the school kids. It is rather seldom they track across the lawn. Yet it always peeves us considerable when, and if, they do. And we get exceedingly exasperated at the lad who rides his bike over the lawn and right through the young hedge we have been trying to get going. Which riding a bike through a young hedge makes a discouraging proposition, not only for the hedge grower, but for the hedge as well. However, the kids from Monroe school are a mighty fine bunch of youngsters. In other words they are classy numbers. Which, as they attend the classiest school In the country, is no more than might be expected. . Who said it was such a'job to make up the income tax return. There's nothing to it. Just as simple as filling out a blank check. Any one can do it with no trouble or inconvenience if they use our method. We just "gathered up all the figures and papers, hied our- self to the office of our lawyer, laid the whole mess in his lap and said: "Brother, this is now vour baby. You rock it to sleep." Which rangements lor the event, it was earnestly hoped by all members that the robins would fully cooperate and do their part to make this annual event as outstanding as the occasion demands. Tiic president then delivered a short address in which he warned members against being misled bv' false reports from amateur first" robin seeers who sometimes get mixed up on their birds. After which the/ meeting adjourned with the usual eclat and decorum. _ A .^^. ,, . Soln * t '»e back we remarked in this Pillar of gloom that no farm sale advertisement c o u l d be printed without staling why the sales was beine held. And ive cited numerous examples to~prove onr case. However we now rise on oar Ions hind legs and publicly state we are a liar. For the impossible has happened, occurred and taken place. Two recent farm sales ads prominently refrain from specify- mff why the sales are beinff held. They just slart off telling about the sales and nobody's d -- n business why. CAN SMELL FOOD COOKED BY NAZIS lowans Among Those Fighting in Cassino By JAMKH E. KOPER With the 5tb Army in Italy. Feb. 13, (U.R)--American fighting men-- iircd, homesick, cold, dirty and scared--were moving into Cassino Sunday, some of them so close io German lines they could smell the food the nazis' were eating. Most of them had been there before, but were thrown \out as many as 3 times in 24 hours. This time they hoped to stay. The Americans and Germans frequently were onl^ 10 yards apart and sometimes were separated only by a wall, while American artillery pounded the southern end of the cily and the German artillery pounded the northern end. Sgt. Donald WLese of Hartley, Iowa, said that once he and his comrades were so close to the German line that they could smell "some kind of greasy food which we thought the Germans must be eating." "Vfe culled our guns which soon hit the house and we could hear the jerries yelling and chattering as they scrambled from the house " he said. Pvt. Lee Henderson of Olive Hill, Ky., told how a German rifle grenade hit the door through which he was peeking, knocking him across the room and over 2 chairs. "But the only thing wrong with me is a crick in my back because of the shelling which kept jarring us all the time," he said. Some Americans, using bazookas, blasted holes through heavy stone walls of CJssino's houses and then tossed in grenades before entering-. Cpl. Howard Finch of Sheldon Iowa, said he climbed into the 2nd floor of one house and that shortly after, Germans took over the ground floor. Finch signaled from the window and American guns hammered the lower floor until the Germans lied. Finch climbed down, unhurt and thankful for tne accuracy of American artillery. Later, Finch shot one German through the head and 7 others surrendered to him. S/Sfff. Ivan Degrraff of Alton, Iowa, went to the rescue of a tank which was unable to see enemy Sunaets. lie leaped on Jop of the tank and directed it toward a German dugrout which was wiped out.

I have also tried jerking the door open real quick to try and catch the light going on, but, if it was not burning before I opened the door, it always beat me to the draw. And of course one Urges No Limit to Jews in Palestine New York, (U.R) -- Palestine is now prepared to accept and aid any number of refugees from embattled Europe, Rabbi Meyer Berlin, president of the World Mizrachi Organization, reported recently in a cable announcing his safe arrival in Jerusalem. Berlin urged the British government to remember the bailie now being fought to defeat the same enemy that has "imposed the dreaded Jewish dilemma" in acting to stop the activation of the White Paper, which would limit the number of .Tews able to enter Palestine. Failure to act with justice towards the Jew now is equivalent to a military and political "shot- in-the-arm" for Hitler, Berlin said.
