D. Geography Makes It Hard for Student FORT YATES, . N. D.

Instead it's the county seat of Pembina County and Pembina is "just another town.' 1 Likewise, Steele is not the county scat of McHenry County—nearly 75 distant county of Kldder. Then there's Towner, the county sea of McHenry County—nearly 75 miles from Towner County; Mc- Kenzte in Burlclgh County—nearly 75 miles from Towner County; and Hettlngcr, county seat of Lie Detectors Organize To Keep 'Em Honest CHICAGO (UP)—Leonard Keeler, president ol the newly-founded International Society for the Detection of Deception, has chosen Chicago as headquarters for scientific crime detection.

Marshall. The Ferguson - Knowland move developed after the State Department was rebuked sharply hi an ApproprlcJ ions Committee meeting for permitting commercial exports to Russia and for allegedly running an "underground l«nd- lease program" in defiance of Congress. The latter charge was vigorously denied bv Assistant Secretary of State Wlllard Thorpe. But he admitted that American Industrial goods are being sent to the Soviets by private traders.. Knowland, pointing, out that the State and Commerce departments have authority to cut off *uch shiprnents, said that if the'trade Is not stopped he believes Congress will stop it. The California senator said trade with Russia is reminiscent of the prewar "appeasement policy" toward Germany and Japan.
