Sheridan is the new headquar- :ers of the Northwestern Army Remount Area and all over the west horses are going to war. The remount office is scouring Wyoming, Montana, Utah and Idaho for horses ami-mules for the armed services, and in addition is placing thoroughbred stallions with ranchers to insure the raising of more good horses. Cow country experts see in the wartime move a postlwar industry gor the area --· thre raising of blooded horses. Sheridan county and the sur- sounding country has for a long and, oddly, learned a lot from its enemj. At the moment all along this front the operation is one of beau- tiftilly-timed encirclements. There is no secret about the red army tactics which have put the Germans on the run. The Russians scout and then begin their encirclements with fast- moving units which include airplanes, air sledges which can^go better than 100 'miles an hour, cavalry and motorized infantry. When artillery is needed to blast the Germans from their positions they have plenty of it--and it is plenty big. Throughout the whole drive here- the artillery has been the real backbone. S o v i e t mobile units have achieved great skill in cutting up the enemy's front. Their tanks, on which tommy-gunners ride, strike with great effect. The Russians assert that medium tank, called the their 14, is period of years grade horses for supplied first- army use. The horses purchased in Sheridan and vicinity are half-thoroughbred or better, which, according to standards of the army, is ideal. These horses have what it takes to carry on under the rigid requirements of wartime use.

They also have sleds, the horse- drawn variety, by the thousands. When the snow gets deep they are vital to battle operations. But I have yet to see the Germans using any of them. The commanders one talks with impress one with their great confidence in victory. This was apparent when I visited the front last winter as the Russians then had the Germans on the run--but it definitely was not on this scale. . They are not laughing at the Germans, however. They still pay them considerable tribute as fighters. But the commanders all say Hitler won't come bounding back next summer. The present weather, they assert, should be ideal for the German armored forces and motorized units. Every soldier and officer I talked with possessed a deep, almost religious faith, in Premier Stalin's direction of the war. They gave him full credit for everything. The fighters are finely equipped in clothes. Soldiers generally wear the famous Russian valinki--a felt boot that comes to the knee, or above, if wanted. Their uniforms are thick and so is their underwear. Most of them prefer a fur-lined hat to a steel helmet in winter weather. Their gloves are deep, fur-lined and equipped with trigger fingers. Their lommygun is a neat, easily handled, light little weapon. They also carry a very ugly-look- ine knife. The red army front-line fighter gets 100 grams (three and one- hah* ounces) of Vodka daily which, Charles City News Poultry Health School, Training Course 164, Opens at Charles City CHARLES CITY--The first of a series of Dr. Salsbury's poultry health schools and dealer training courses opened Monday at Dr. Salsbury's laboratories with 34 students in attendance, representing hatcheries, poultry processing establishments, feed manufacturing firms, feed dealers and druggists. Seven states are represented in the school with Iowa leading with 17. Minnesota has 11 attending, Illinois two, and one each came from North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Wisconsin. T. P. Beekman of the May Drug company is the Charles City representative in the school. In the absence of Dr. J. E. Salsbury, Dr. John Salsbury opened the school, welcoming the men to Charles City and making preliminary explanations as to the nature of the course and its purpose. The present schol is the lG4th° school on poultry health education that Dr. Salsbury has held since he originated it in 1934. Gas rationing apparently has little effect on attendance at the school, most of the men coming on trains or busses, with those nearby driving their automobiles. The students will be under intensive training for five days in Highballing "" ' "^ America's 233,000 mile railroad network, 30 per cent of the world's total, is playing a. vital role in joining production line and battlefront.

W Crawford of Clear Lake, iield representative for Equitable Life Assurance society of the United States, reported Monday the sale of the 102.58 acre Carman farm in Floyd county to Fred A. Ehlebracht of Rudd. The reported sale price was approximately $120 per acre. This farm is located 'within the city limits of Rudd, and is now operated Charles LaCoste. FREIGHT: Guns,.tanks, oil and civilian supplies added up to 630 billion ton miles in 1942, a 33 per cent increase over '41 and 150 per cent greater than in war year 1918. Cars like these, leaving an Indiana factory, averaged a load of 31% tons each. The railways put on 61,000 new cars in the year to help carry the staggering load, increased efficiency and maintenance. PASSENGERS: While freight is the big revenue producer, a major war job is carrying troops. Added to this is increased travel by the public, combining to produce 53 billion passenger miles in '42, a 13 per cent increase from the 1920 all-time record. Shown is a typical example of resultant crowding in day coaches. Nine million troops were carried by Pullman. Former Charles City Man Dies in Minnesota CHARLES CITY--Word of the death of Eugene M.

Up here at the front we have I been eating well--far better than we eat in Moscow; It also gives an American a thrill up here to know that most of the food for the red army is hauled up over great distances by United States made trucks. Russians say that the American trucks are good and strong but they are in great need of spare parts. They also say that they think their trucks behave slightly better in extreme temperatures but that this doesn't mean they are not thankful for the vehicles from the United States Charles City Briefs CHARLES CITY--Mrs. Laura Ward is confined to her home 1002 East Kelly street, after having broken her right wrist when she fell on an icy sidewalk.

(U.R) -- James Irving Son, Inc., manufacturers of woolen garb for soldiers in the Civil War, Spanish-American War Mexican War and World War I are supplying wool products for the nation's armed forces in World War II. Founded in 1842, the concern now is headed by S. Lloyd Irving, representing the third generation of the Irving family. WORKERS: To keep the trains rolling 1,270,000 workers are working. Women are replacing men called to the colors in many hitherto strictly masculine jobs. The feminine contingent finds important -work as cleaners and maintenance crews in yards and depots. Here a group of the new style engine cleaners head toward the locker rooms after a busy day on the Long Island railroad. MAINTENANCE: Every day, 80,000 of the 2,000,000 freight cars come into repair shops from the main line. Daily maintenance and repair cost is more than §4,370,000. Blacksmith shops are even equipped to rebuild a -heavy locomotive completely. Because of government restrictions on new rolling stock construction, much equipment has boon recalled from sidings, overhauled for duty.

COLONEL COLBY TALKS ON TANKS Declares Improvements Continually Being Made MILWAUKEE--"We dare not be self-satisfied for a moment with our present achievements," Lt. Col. Joseph M. Colby declared in an address before the war engineering production meeting of the Society of Automotive Engineers here. "Wo arc' continuing to improve not only the tanks, but also the performance of other combat team members, such as reconnaissance vehicles,. scout cars, command cars, self-propelled anti-aircraft, self-propelled artillery, cargo vehicles, personnel carriers and motor transport vehicles," he continued. Drawing on his observations, made while under the guns of Rommel on the Egyptian desert battlefront a year ago, and on present day news, the colonel pointed out to the group that "the British declare the American- made tanks to have been the mainstay of their drive in thrusting Rommel's men back across North Africa. They knew that the American tanks reliability would take them into action, give a gooci account o£ themselves and bring them out of battle again." Lt. Col. Colby, chief ot the tank-automotive center's development branch in Detroit, is the designer of ( the M-28 tank, and one of the army's outstanding authorities on tank warfare, having traveled over 70,000 miles as nn army observer on the battlcfronts of the world. He is a native of Lake Mills, Iowa. Colonel Colby is in command o a staff of 60 ordnance officers (Lt. H. B. "Hank" Hook, formerly of the KGLO staff, is serving with the staff of Colonel Colby) and 40 civilian engineers who are engaged in the improvemen and testing of army tanks. He told the gathering of technical experts that the dcvelopmen corps is conducting tests at thi Aberdeen, Md., proving grounds for muck and mire, in Canada fo sub-zero temperatures, in thi deserts of California for sand ant at Phoneix, Ariz., for powder; dust and high altitude work. Flat-bottomed sailing yachts on middlewestem lakes are said t have attained speeds as high a 125 miles per hour. For Posterity A somber Abraham Lincoln stood on the station platform at Springfield, Illinois, and looked down on trie faces of the thousand friends and neighbors gathered to bid him goodbye as lie left for Washington on Feb. 11, 1861. Removing his hal, the' President-elect asked for silence and Lcgan his historic farewell address. A young Associated Press correspondent, Henry Villard, was tras'eling with Lincoln and as soon as the train had started told Lincoln that he had made .in extraordinarily moving address that should be preserved for posterity. He asked that Lincoln wrileil out, whereupon the President- elect took the correspondent's paper and pencil and set the speech down in his own band, giving Villard the manuscript to telegraph at the first station. This was typical of AP's coverage of the Lincoln administration and the ensuing war, a coverage that was to produce countless beais from the first authentic story of the Union policy toward the South to the flash on Lincoln's death. The government itself, lacking adequate telegraph facilities, commandeered the AP system. In the 12 years since its founding the AP had grown up so that a New York Herald man wrote: "The special correspondents of the several New York papers are nearly if not quite as numerous as the agents o£ the AP." One of the agents, as AP reporters were then called, Lawrence A. Gohright, in Washington, summarized an AP man's creed. lie said: "My business is to communicate facts; my instructions do not allow me to make any comment upon the facts. My dispatches are sent to papers of all manner of politics. I therefore confine myself to what I consider legitimate news, Uy to be truthful and impartial." Today, more than 80 years later, that creed still holds, for AP men covering the war news and all the news. -FIRST AT TIE FRONT FOR i CESTUIT
