Set up Groups To Aid Returned War Veterans Establ~ment of co~n~ttees of farm p~: in every County in North Dakota to give advisory as- sistance to returning war veterans vho want to farm will be complet- ed within the next several weeks ~. J. Haslerud, Director of the ND- ~C Extension Service, announced ecently. A series of meetings with county extension agents outlining the pro- gram will be finished May 24th and it is expected committees will be functioning in all counties by .~he end of June. The plan for helping war veter- ans is being organized on a similar basis throughout the United States with the extension agent in each county responsible for establishing the local committees and serving as liasion between the committees and the local selective service boards and other groups. According to Director Haslerud, establishment of the farm advisory groups is being done in harmony with and does not duplicate other programs for the benefit of return- ing service men. For the veteran who wants to get started on a farm, the committees now being set up will be the central county agency from which to obtain in- formation wnd advice. Activities in providing this aid to service men are associated close- ly with other similar work begun several months ago by the Exten- sion Service under the supervision of S. I~L Thorflnnson, Director Has- lerud says. The complete facilities of the extension service under these joint programs are now combined with the work of the county farm advisory committees to assist war veterans. Raise a Bigger Gar this Year We hope that by now most of you have planted all of the frost resistant ~tables in your gar- den. We hope that you are plan- ning on a garden at least as large as last year's. Don't be fooled by 'the relaxing of rationing of some of the more important vegetables. There is little doubt that most vegetables will be back on the ra- tion list before the summer is up. Plan now to grow enough of the more important vegetables so that you will be able to put up enough to take you thru the coming win- ter and spring. our transportation facilities are now being taxed to the limit haul- ing war matel~.

All young women interested, even if you haven't played soft ball before please attend. Two Arrested for Breaking Signs A favorite sport among certain classes of individuals has been the destruction of highway signs and damaging other state property. This vandalism has amounted to quite a few thousand dollars dur- ing the years, every cent of it coming out of the taxpayers pockets. Recently three young fellows in a car damaged signs and posts ~long state highway No, 37, west of Garrison. Two of them were apprehended and after confessing paid about $37 for property dam- age and $33 costs, about $50.00, or $35.00 each.

That was the general opinion of those attending Gov. Moses' labor and combine conference in Bis- marck Friday. Last year's scarcity of new farm machinery and equipment will be eased somewhat for the coming season, it was explained, although it is doubtful if the full allotment promised North Dakota farmers will be available. However, North Dakota farmers are assured 2,600 full size combines direct from the factories. In 1943 700 new combines were brought into the state. Last year 700 out-of-state com- bines operated in the North Dakota harvest fields with out-of-state crews. A considerable increase in this number can be expected for this year. Besides, Governor John Moses explained, there are posat- bilities that U. S. customs and health regulations may be modified so as to allow crews with combines from Canada to cross the border into the state without too much red tape. The labor situation will be more acute this year than last season. While North Dakota will need at least 15,000 men for the small grain harvest in addition to our ow~ labor pools and the seasonal influx of harveet workers from nearby states, the number than can be re- cruited in southern states may be greater than last year. But last season's troop labor may not be available this year. And with a smaller number of men available in our own state, the labor outlook is not encouragiug. Six hundred Mexican nationals will arrive in the state on May 28 ami 600 Jamaicans are assured for later in the season for the best field. Some German war prisoners may be available. The North Dakota harvest pla~ of mobilizing all available local manpower will continue to be the backbone of our harvest war effort, "Local mobilization will be-of ex- treme importance," Gov. Moses said. All highway restrictions will be removed, the same as last year, for transient combines and out-of-state harvest crews, Highway Commis, the trio had joined the arn~y before ,he law caught up with him~. Superintendent E. M. Klein of ~e highway patrol has issued or- ers to all patrolmen that anyone caught defacing or damaging high- way signs or other property of the highway department are to be ar- rested ahd prosecuted. "Not only are signs hard to re- place at the present time, but their cost is almost prohibitive," he stated. "Signs are erected for the guidance and protection of the motoring public and should not be molested. The highway patrol will appreciate reports whenever signs or any other highway property is dan~ged so that the perpetrators may be apprehended and convicted." guests were: Red Higgins, Mrs. Hugh Worthen, mother of the bride ~nd Miss Pauline ZinslL Mr. and Mrs. Knopp will leave in a short while for a honeymoon trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota. They will make their home at Alpha. A wedding dance was held at Alpha Tuesday evening, which was well attended. V~ 1VIETHODIST CHURCH Rev. D. J. McTavish, Pastor Sunday School at 10 A. M.
