Project work is already under way with the Junior Red Cross quota for the county. A special order of navy menu covers, decorated 'in keeping with the season and service classification, has been filled for Christmas det livery by the Red Cross to sailors ot our navy, wherever they may be stationed. The folder, a 6x9 paper cover, is appropriately decorated and sent to the Red Cross in the area or location of the naval base' where printed menus from the navy department are placed inside the folder. For Christmas Dinner Each boy is given one of these at the Christmas dinner, as a personal souvenir. The county quota •of 200 was quickly filled and has been sent on its way to the area Office of the American Red Cross at St. Louis, and the true spirit •of the project was evident by the collection of neat and original cover designs made by the following schools (from their high school and tipper grades): Buffalo Consolidated, Titonka, M. F. Cheever, superintendent; Presentation Academy, Whittc- more, Sr. M. Raymond, principal; St. Joseph's school, Bode, Sr. Mary Clare Terese, principal. The name of the school appears on the cover and each school is thus credited for its share in the project. Enrollment Campaign On The enrollment campaign is being carried on this week within each elementary room to be completed by the 15th. The enrollment fee for each elementary room is 50 cents and for each one hundred pupils in the high school it is one dollar. The amount re- ceived above that total will be retained in the Kossuth County Chapter treasury for financing the work of projects. The amount o some three hundred dollars raisec last year in this campaign from nearly 100 per cent of the schools is expected to be increased with the 100 per cent participation ii every school in the county. More Projects Other projects will be undei way for the remainder of the year and these include scrap books, games (checker boards ring toss, chess, ping pong, efc.) made by manual training departments, bed room slippers, af- "hans, bedside bags, made by home making departments ant additional table and tray favors described as "gloom chasers" for the service men of our country Writing boards, bed tables, canes and many other miscellaneous items are on the list and ready for the willing and creative hands of the school boys and girls.

It is holding a "syre'tte." "Syrettes" are small morphine hypodermic syringes. They are important items in the supplies of all Medical Units of the Armed Forces, and are carried on all combat expeditions. The "syrette" contains enough morphine to deaden pain for 10 to 14 hours in the event a man is seriously wounded. Millions of "syrettes" are required now. Millions more will be requqired. They are made of tin. The tin reclaimed from TWO small used food cans is enough to make one "syrette". CONSERVATION NOTES FOR IOWA Des Moines, Nov. 1—The 1943 pheasant season opened at 9 a. n. Thursday in 65 counties, 38 of which are open through December 3 with a daily bag limit of ix birds. Twenty-seven counties were opened only from October 28 :hrough November 7, a total of 11 days, and in these counties the daily'bag limit is three birds. In the territory with the long season one hen may be included in a bag of six. In the short season territory no hens may be .aken. Possession limit on pheasants for thfj third day is 18 birds, hree of which may be hens. Huniers Have to 'Hunt.' Though game technicians and observers generally .agree that there is the greatest pheasant population in history, the early opening plus extremely dense cover is expected to make hunters work for their game. Hunters are cautioned to ask permission before entering any >rivate property to hunt, and hey are also cautioned to use ex- reme care in handling firearms. Carrying loaded or assembled guns in automobiles on public ighways is prohibited by statute, ind so is extremely dangerous, nd it is also unsportsmanlike. onservation officers in the pheasant territories have been in- tructed to pay special attention o this type of violation. Quail Season Too. The quail season opened No- 'ember 1 at 8:30 a. m. and closes N T oV. 30 at 5:30 p. m. The bag imit is eight; possession limit, he same.

Washington, Louisa, Union, Clarke, Lucas, Monroe, Wapello, Tc'fferson, Henry, Des Moines, Taylor, R i n g g o 1 d, Wayne, '\ppanoose, Davis, Van Buren,, Johnson, Muscatine, Cedar, Scott. Clinton, Linn. Jones, Jackson, Delaware, Dubuque, Dallas, md Polk. Big Quail Population. Post-census quail observations have painted even a rosier pic- •ure than was obtained during a census. Many observers believe the quail population this fall is greater than in 1939, when Iowa coverts contained the largest number of quail in modern times. Trout fishing in Iowa closed by statute September 30. However, fter irivostiBrttion by fisheries employes which revealed a large •nrry-over of trout, the conserva- ion commission by administra- ive order extended the season for 31 days, and under this order he season closed at 9 p. m.

The especially mild autumn weather plus the finest display of -mtumn colors for rn-any seasons was responsible for the sharp attendance increase, according to the park men. 'Strong' Game Outdated. With most game seasons in Towa opening earlier than usual this year, special attention should he given to the care of game after it is taken and before it is used for food. For many years sportsmen deliberately allowed game to set "high." or "strong," before using it. However, this has almost ceased to be a practice in this state, and "high" gave is no longer considered fashionable. In hot weather birds should be bled upon killing in order to remove body heat quickly, and entrails should be removed to eliminate both heat and the possibility of souring. Don't Bunch Birds. Wipe out the body cavity with paper or dried grasses. Carry same head downward to let the feathers open at the top, so that heat may escape. Never bunch birds together or put them in a tight box or sack. Separate birds in the car, so they may cool on the way home. In hot weather dress birds out as quickly as possible and then put in a cool place. Old Neighbors — Fifty years PO.
