Intetesting folks, along the way: Set. Finnegan of the U. S. army band, touring the west coast — he 'plays the shotgun' in the band, he states — and he actually does. In the "1812 Overture," he fires a shotgun into a barrel at the right time . . . . George Bear Cloud of Hardin, Montana, ex-marine, ex-TJ. S. deputy marshal, and fine-looking Crow Indian, a real native American . . . Hugh M. Linn, early' day graduate of Iowa State College and now operating the Hardin, Montana creamery .- . . Al West, fire chief at Sonoma, Cal. state hospital, an authority pn early history of his area. • * « * How much "slippage" is the American economy undergoing in the western states? Who knows? New sub-divisions are still mushrooming, especially in areas where U. S. treasury money is being poured out;, navy »and air force camps and bases: airplane factory and subsidiary areas; shipyard areas with government contracts. But sometimes it reminds you of a movie set. All the buildings appear beautiful, but when you get around behind you find some are held up by some shaky props, ihe surface looks good, but if the props give way — watch out . . . there is a general unawareness that midwestern agriculture is not having ! boom times. * * * Roads and highways? Nearly all are good, many double lane in Both directions ... and most use the newer type of asphalt surfacing which is cheaper to construct and in those climates seems as good as cement . . . Iowa's roads while basically good so far as they go, or we should say as wide as they go, lag far behind in safety factors and modernization . . . the western ranges are loaded with cattle, and with rain and grass, which the west has had, more will move directly to market without the intermediate feedi ing process further east . . . even South Dakota, for once, has Water standing in roadside pools, although that may not be the case a month from now. * « « Note: Reports now are thai western Dakota and eastern Montana just burned up in a week of hot, dry weather. • * * Nature has endowed the U. S. with just about everything in the way of scenic beauty and natural resources, and we seem to be making the most of each. « » * Famous Last Line (Stolen from sign in a Montana Cafe): A halo only has to drop six inches to become a noose.

AND MANY OTHER WEED PESTS WITH DB-GRANULAR Weed Kilter it the result of 'intensive research devoted to developing an efficient and dependable destroyer of deep-rooted weeds. At a scientifically balanced formulation of sodium berates and 2,4-D, it effectively solves the "deep- root" weed problems of agriculture and industry. Because of high potency, a very low rate of application gives maximum control with utmost economy. Since DB-GRANULAR gives nonselective herbicidal action for long periods, its use should be restricted to areas where roott of adjacent vegetation will not extend. Application is simple — just a man and a pail — or any mechanical spreader, is all that is required. This granular material is always ready for use-DRY-in its delivered form; there is nothing to .mix and no need to haul water. Seasonal rains add DB-GRANULAR to the soil solution, then carry it down to destroy even the deepest roots! . Check These Important Features: Economical to use .
