Brazil (AP) —The United States rushed tons of food supplies today to about 300,000 homeles s refugees fleeing from four days of uncontrolled garden— ing«., with Hie editor Another wet weekend — especially in some spots around the area — and another score for local weather prophet Elihu Allman. Early las r t week, after hitting the rains the weekend pi'ior lo that, he predicted more rain for this weekend. And it came Saturday night. He also sees more today or tomorrow — and so does the ••eather bureau. Hope United Fund board members and drive officials aren't superstitous. The annual drive will get underway this Friday — the 13th, that is — with the first mailing of letters ioi\ advance gifts. UF Secretary, Mary Knief started work this morning in the Chamber of Commerce office, and will be holding forth most of the time from now until the drive is completed. A postcard from an anonymous reader contained this information: "Sorry to hear you are giving up telling elephant jokes, but after reading about your troubles with razor Wades, it's apparent you have lost your 'patch a derm'." How 'about that, sports fans? * * * Also contributed was' a suggestion we start telling turtle jokes with this for a starter: Seems three turtles went into a restaurant for a cup of coffee. Just as they sat down, it started to rain. The biggest turtle turned to the smallest and told him to get an umbrella. "I will if you won't drink my coffee while I'm gone," the little turtle replied. After getting a promise from the other two that they would not drink his coffee, he departed. Two years later, the big turtle turned to the middle one and said: "I guess our little friend isn't coming back, so I'll drink his coffee." From just outside the door came the voice: "If you do, I won't go for the umbrella." That should end all turtle Jokes. forest fires in the drought-parched slate of Parana. Officials expressed hopp that heavy rains moving slowly northward from Argentina would end the fires that have claimed possibly 250 lives and destroyed thousands of acres of coffoe plantations. Food supplie s were running short. Th c United States and Brazil combined in rushing powdered milk, cornmeal and Hour to the refugees. Doctor and nurse teams of the U.S. Peace Corps were reported treating about 500 injured refugees. The U.S. Food for Peace program ordered foodstocks flown and trucked In. Brazilian President Joao Goulart called for an all-out effort to help Parana. The government lias ordered $1 million in federal funds released to Parana Gov. Ney Braga. "Now only rain can save us from total defeat," said Col. Italo Conte, head of the fire-fighting effort, in a telephone interview from Curitiba, capital of Parana. There ha s been no appreciable rain in the state since January. Conte had said 230 persons perished in the fires but revised his estimate. "The final count could be much less or much greater because there is just no way to know," he said "(Many families are separated but most of the men are probably fighting the fires somewhere." He estimated that 300,000 persons out of a state population of 2.1 million, were burned out of their homes. The fires, scattered over SO areas, apparently dealt a severe blow to the coffee crop. Parana is Brazil's biggest offee-producing state. Sterling Main Heads Wheat Commission HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Ralph Ball of Sterling is the new chairman of the Kansas Wheat Commission.
