Rubber Company starts a campaign, it does so in a big way and never fails to carry it on to a successful finish. .Another such campaign—flic 1 War Fund drive—will be started next Sunday afternoon at -!:M() o'clock in front of the tennis mill on Maple street at which time the Company's new honor roll will be unveiled. The names of 8~;f> employes of the Company's plant who joined the armed forces of our country have been inscribed cm the roll. An appropriate ami impressive program has been arranged, and the importance of the fund for war veterans will bo stressed by speakers reprsenting the company ami its employes. T'liis fund is one,' that should appeal strongly to tin.- generosity of people in all walks uf life. The money is to be used .for a commendable purpose. ^\ c have no hesitancy in expressing the npinjoji that tin.- corning drive will bu a splendid success.

N'ot horse- chest mils, mind you, bid: those delectable morsels of which saelcsful, painfully extracted from their prickly burrs, once reposed in the cellars of families hav'mg small boys to culk'ct them. A quarter of a century ago state forestry experts fought valiantly but in v.-iiii l-o cumpier the strange blight; which killed not old}' (.-very chestnut, tree in the state, but also neu - sprouts. Loss of iho trees meant not only the absence of nuts .from the markets, but also uf the lumber, •\vliich was valliable building material. So five years ago the state conservation department tried raising young trees imported from Asia. And they grew. Thcv not only grew, .but flourished, apparently untouched by the fatal blight. It will be many years before chestnuts and chestnut lumber are once more important factors in the domestic economy of tlie state, but the first crop is in, and the state rejoices. When the war is over, the conferences ill keep right on. Sure, there'll always be a Paris, and Paris shall be free. Heard on board ship: "T have given the best years oi' my wife to the Navy."

Many Dumbarton Delegates Like FDR's Security Plan Property Disposal Group Attacked Ey Congressman lo Contra! Tress A Disease Caused By Injected Ticks . I "-iAVE been requested by the Editor of the Hifrh Point,- North Ciu-'ilinn. "Entorprisi!" to discuss Rocky Mountain Spotted 'Fever. We s'laios that there have boon several cases i-nportcd . in liis noiKhhoi'l' 00 '!- T!lLs P' jinl " s u !' thu wan-miK th;it it is no lonRur ".n exclusively KocUy Mountain disease. It h:is now benn reported in •12 SL.-II.LVS, thu exceptions boiliS the New Kn^lunc! States rind Michigan. Il is mu.-it I'rcciuor.l in thu Rocky Mountuir. states where it was lli-Ki described. Of tho eastern states it has belli reported most frequently from Maryland. North Carolina and Virginia. The tivcr- :if;o number of cases occurir.g each year in the United States is probably in excess of 600. Rocky Mountain Spotted 'Fever is an "acute, infectious, but not contafiious. disease, transmitted to human beinprs exclusively by bites from infected ticks. In the early days in the west this relationship was recognized and it was called "Licit fever." Variotiifti of Ticks There arc several varieties of wood ticks which can trnnsmit the disease—tho common do™ tick ar.d rabbit tick nmonK them. Tho disease is not primarily one of humiin bcinjrs, but of .-mimals, and .1 ve- sui-voii' of the disease is kept froinif in the bodies of such wild animals as raccoon, skunk and rabbits ar.d possibly domestic cattle, horses and (lojrs. Human beings pick up the ticks when they arc in the woods or garden or possibly from domestic animals. Very few" of tho ticks which you or your do;,' may pick up during a woodland sli'oi:, however, arc ini'ccted. The licks transmit tho virus, or KCI-IJI. of Rocky .Mountain Spotted Fever to humans, or other animals, when they bite. They also become infected themselves by bi!.- IIIK an infected animal. After feeding they full of!' the host and soeli shelter in the bushes and attach themselves to man or .animal as he posses by 'rick carry the virus of the disease for lonfr periods. After hibernation in the spring the virus in their bodies is attenuated and a bite at this time does not produce infection in a victim. But in the course of the summer the virus becomes activated in the tick's body, and it is then dangerous. This accounts for tho seasonal distribution of the disease—in summer rind early fall. Symptoms of Fever Tho symptoms of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever in humans come on abruptly wi'th fever and usually .1 hard chill. Headache and muscle .'.iche arc very severe. On the second to fourth day the eruption appears with thickly distributed rod. sometimes raised, spots on tho feet, leys, hands and arms lirst. later ihe entire body. Com- lete prostration and mental con- fusjon are common. The treatment is general r.ithcr" than specific. In other words, no driij,' or serum which has a- certain •record of cure is known. Resf. in bod, liquid diet and supportive measures arc the first line of defense. Convalescent serum ar.d a form of anti-serum, are sometimes helpful. Dr. Gcoi'KC Baker, of Casper, Wyoming, has used nco- arsphor.aminc in metaphenc solution in the vein with increasing WASHINGTON — Delegations ! representing the "big threu" Allied I powers at tho Dumbarton Oaks i conference arc reported to have ac! copied in the main President j llooscvelt's plan for the general outline of a work! security organ- is-.aiion. At loast it-is the "Amen: can plan" lo which 'the president I ha:; given his personal blessing. I Tho delegates have gone further than that. They .ire lining in some i o; 1 the wide gaps in the general structure. These gaps, incidenially, are tho important and troublesome . parts of the proposed organi-ation. i They constitute its sinews and sub| stance. The- .composition of the council of the new league of nations called for in tho American plan has been i agreed upon by the delegates. Tho plan is to have the "big four" Ali Hud powers the permanent members of this council, with corwin other nations -sitting in from time to time on a rotation basis. All participating nations would bo represented in the assembly, which would be a kind of international "Hyde Park" whore spokesmen for the small nations could jjivo vent to their views. But, from all present appearances, the "big four" actually would run the show. One feature of the American plan which threatens to cause considerable controversy in the Senate is the proposal to permit the president to move against an aggressor without a declaration of war by Congress. Under this plan, it is said, the president could take initial action against an aggressor in the "American sphere" if a majority of the council approved- this course the American delegate voted for It. What thi! "American spiicro" woulrl be -has not been clearly defined. A HYDRA-H 12 A D E D MONSTROSITY" is the way Rep. Carter Mar.asco (D) of Alabama describes the four-member board and administrator tentatively approved by House and Senate con- forces on the surplus war property disposal bill. Manasco, chairman of tho House conferees, said the senate conferees insisted on a. board while the House stood firm for s. single administrator "iind that's what ra- stiltcd. Manasco said that, under the plan, both the administrator ami the board would issue regulations for the disposition of surplus war property. If the board disagreed with the administrator, it could overrule him. But the administrator could appeal to the director of war mobilization and reconversion, who could overrule the board. but the-Navy has no prediction to make on the end of the war will) Germany-" ADMIRAL WILLIAM F.

Tho olrtcer? • under him really love and .rcspo'ct ."Bull" Halsey.'- Here is a .story that has come out of the Pacific—and whether true or not it demonstrates the man's character and why his men revere him: An unidentified naval olllcer was scheduled to get two medals for heroism a; Halsey's headquarters. The night before the presentation, tde hero and some oiHcer friend celebrated a little too vigorously. In the morning; the olliccr appeared before Halsey all spic and span but a trifle shaky on his feet. Halsey eyed the ollicer and noted that he was trying- hard to appear in Ihe best possible parade form. Hulsoy read the long citation, then fiinncd the lirst medal on the hero's blouse. The admiral then read tho other long citation, and when he finished he reached for the medal, looked at the ollicer, and remarked to his aide: "I shouldn't pin -this ore on. I don't think he can stand the weight." You're Telling Me! By WILLIAM KITT (Centriil iTt-sd writer) A UTAH burglar broke into '.' -.iore,_ swiped its clock but lefi the cash register untouched.
