The poppiesy 3,000 of them, Were in boxes shipped from Des Moines where they were made by disabled war veterans under direction of the Iowa department of the auxiliary. : Have Deep Meaning Shaped patiently by hand, each little flower Is a replica in crepe paper of the fldwers that bloomed on the battle fields of the first world war. Each is slightly different, but, as Mrs. G. D. Brundage, auxiliary poppy chairman explained, all have the same deep meaning. "Flanders Fields are on the other side of the world from Guadalcanal and a quarter of a century distant in 1 time but the little Wild poppy >of Flanders speaks for the dead of both battles," said Mrs. Brundage. Commander Recalls Service Men, ; who 'served in the first world war were urged to be first .flffirptit on a poppy Saturday in a message issued today by Ralph Miller, commander of Hagg Post i of the "American Legion. Commander Miller said! "Men are again being called upon to give their lives for America as'did our Comrades of 1917,and 1918. Our own boys and our neighbors' boys are among them. Our hearts are heavy at the thought that these young 'men must meet the same fate as did those other young, men we left beneath the poppies of France 25. years ago. To show thai we honor and remember the dead of both wars we have our memorial poppy. By wearing this little flower we signify' that we are carrying on in their spirit for the ' final triumph of • the • cause" for which they laid down their lives." Will Receive Contributions While distributing the memorial flowers Saturday, auxiliary members will receive contributions for the Legion and Auxiliary rehabilitation and welfare funds. All of the money contributed will go into i these funds, the workers serving without pay. Poppy contributions form an important part of the funds which support the vast humanitarian efforts of the Legion and Auxiliary for the disabled veterans,,and children of the dean and disabled of both, wars. More than 13,000,000 poppies were dis r tributed by the Auxiliary-last-year and tyie number worn Saturday is expected to be. muph larger.

FARM WIFE MAY GET POINTS TO FEED EXTRA HELP Farmers Who Employ Help For Less Than 30 Days May Apply for Extra Foot Rations The local rationing board today released an explanation of fooc rationing rules as applied to extra farm help and regular farm employees. The board^has received, a fromjftossuthv farmers, ployes are divided into three classifications, extra help for less than 3Q days, the farm hand who lives in town and goes home for the week-end and the farm hand who lives continuously with his farm employer. Farmers who employ extra help for a period of less than 30 days may go to their ration boards am apply for extra food rations to serve those employees on a basis of three meals a day. The farmer is not permitted to collect ration stamps' from such employees. Six Day Farm Hand If a farm hand works six days a week at the farm and then goes to his own home in town for over Sunday, he is not considered under OPA regulations as a permanen 1 boarder at the farm. In other words, there is no rule requiring the farm hand to give up his ration book to his employer in such cases. OPA, however, suggests that in a spirit of fair play, the farm hand offer -to his employer a sufficient number of ration stamps to "pay" for his meals. Such an agreement is strictly between the employer and employee, the OPA stresses, and no federal regulations apply .to force such an ad-< justment of rationing. The farm hand who lives seven days a week" at the farm he is employed, is required under OPA regulations to turn over his ration book to his employer. For Hungry Threshers Farm wives who have been'.worrying about how they are goinj to get enough ration points to feec the neighbors when they come over to help at ^threshing time may go ahead and plan, the usual big dinner without stripping their own ration books; The OPA has ruled ,as "extra help" this typical Iowa plan oJ exchanging work at threshing time.' This means that'' the farrr wife may go to her ration boarc and secure enough extra points -to purchase the necessary supplies to feed those hungry threshers.
