"No one was more surprised tc land here than we were," write Ellefson who was only recently promoted to the rank of sergeari' "The country is pretty, the peo pie are friendly, but the money is most confusing." "They have so many notes tha when one gets change, it is jus a handful of paper. "Tangerines; oranges, dates ano figs grow here the year around and we are getting our fill." Sergeant Ellefson was amazev to find the architecture so ad vanced. The buildings are modern the houses are stucco aod painte white, yellow, pink or brown. It is interesting to discover tha the beers served in Africa are more nearly like the American brew than any the men in Ellefson's outfit had tasted on the continent. "We must not speak to the mos- lem women who dress i n white robes, and wear veils," writes Ellefson. He concludes that they are all jetting along very well, and thai they are picking up a few French phrases as they go along. WHEREABOUTS Charles P. Pippert, route 2, has eported to the U.

PUBLIC ACCEPTS LESS SERVICE "Customer Always Right" Is Casualty of War CHICAGO, (JP)~A major war casualty on the home front is the cherished business policy that "the customer is always right." With patrons plentiful and help scarce, the public is becoming accustomed to taking--and liking treatment that would have war-' ranted the pink slip in bygone days. A few examples of this revolution in public relations that have turned up in Chicago are: A suitcase laden passenger, boarding an elevated train for a strange destination, told the conductor, "I'd like to get off at Belmont avenue." "Well, go right ahead, Buddy; nobody'l! 'stop you," was the reply. A grocery customer finished off his order with "and two pounds of coffee, please." "1 can let you have only one pound," the clerk told him. "But I have two stamps," the customer protested. "So write me a letter," the clerk yawned, A bowler, anxious to keep his game moving as fast as his opponent's on another alley, began signaling the pinboy to speed up setting the pins. The signals only slowed down the boy; he left the pins lying in the pit and the bowler standing nervously. After about five, minutes of this silent treatment, the pinboy yelled: "Now, fella, if you've got that hurry-up feeling out of your system, I'll set your pins." A housewife went to her neighborhood market repeatedly trying to buy something besides pork, the only meat the dealer had to offer. By Saturday she had despaired of buying anything else and greeted the dealer with, "well, I guess I'll finally have to take some of that pork.'' "Today, lady, you gotta take steak or nothing," he told her. Profitable Prices to for Canners Assured Growers of Vegetables WASHINGTON. (U.R)--Secre- tary of Agriculture Claude R. Wickard announced that the government would purchase the 1943 crop of tomatoes, peas, sweet corn and snap beans from canners and then re-sell the products to the canners at a discount in a move to insure profitable prices to grow- OEADUNEli II a. ·.

A similar program involving the same products was in effect In 1942, but under it canners were not required to abide by the minimum prices recommended by the agriculture department. The program, It was explained, will enable canners to pay higher prices to farmers, but will keep retail prices from increasing. The loss will be absorbed by the government. Wickard said the action represented the first step in a program to encourage farmers to produce sufficient quantities of the four crops to keep canning and dehy- ' drating plants operating at full capacity.

This disease has been increasing slightly week by week since the third week of December and may be expected to become more prevalent during coming weeks, the department said. "Control is more difficult this year than before the war because ol the extra cue loads physicians are carrying, and the public must take increased responsibility in helping prevent spread," officials pointed out. The department urged families to co-operate with physicians in reporting cases and following isolation regulations. (Isolation is for ~ minimum period of 21 days.) Under scarlet fever- isolation regulations, immune persons in the home, including school children, may be released to live elsewhere with the approval of the local board of health. They should not, however, handle milk or food or attend public gatherings for a week after last exposure to the patient, the department added. Mmes. E. C. Callanan, Luick, Miller and Ellen Nielsen. Mmes. Cookman, Hill and Johannessen are. the committee' on resolutions. Mmes. Leith, Winterstien and Cookman served. The camp voted to give $5 to the service men's honor roll board fund. The next meeting is Feb. 25 when candidates wiU be initiated. The officers are requested to meet for practice at 2 o'clock of that day and to have their charges learned.
