Winter Week of Oct. 18-23 Weed Cutting Week The week of October 18 to 23 has been designated weed cutting week along the state's highways by Gov. John Moses. "It is essential that our roads be kept open during the winter months for use of the traveling public in general, and particularly for doctors visiting their patients in the country districts, rural mail carriers, bus drivers transporting children to and from school, and others who perform a public ser- vice," the governor said in a pro- clamation Friday. Weeds are chiefly responsible for the collection of drifting snow on our highways. The governor urged all public officials as well as private citizens "to lend every possible assistanqe in clearing away weeds and other similar snow - catching material along the roads and highways of the state. Every possible effort should be made to undertake and complete this work in advance of possible snow sto~." South--era Workers Say They Like It In North Dakota North Dakota farmers may be interested in what in~presslons southern farm workers carried away with them on completion of harvest this fall.

Do not pu~ a s~ove or range closer to a wail than 18 inches. Put insulation of metal or asbestos, or both, under all stoves, extending at least 12 inches on all sides and preferably twice that distance of sides with open- ings, to prevent sparks falling from the stove to start a fire. Put a metal or asbestos shield on the ceiling over the basement furnace, leaving an alr space be- tween the metal shield and the wood above it as an additional protection. smoke over years of time will cause mortar between bricks of unlined chimneys to deteriorate and work out, leaving small holes between bricks. Even a small hole is large enough so that a small chimney fire may cause the loss of a home. Another important fire hazard from defective chimneys comes, WoJohn points out, when a chimneys sags~ slightly and produces a small crack between floors. A chimney fire, escaping through this crack, will set fire to the Joists or start a fire between floors. Check grates of furnaces before cold weather starts, and replace them if necessary.

We never before have seen such large fat sheep." i T his man also stated that he and his fellow Okiahomans were im- pressed with the interest North Dakota farmers showed "in their health and well-being, and good food." He added that "not a man in our group expected or ever ate so much good food except on very rare occasions." With between 3,000 and 4,000 farm workers from Mississippi, Ok- lahoma and Arkansas helping with harvest and threshing in North ] Dakota the past season, it appears[ North Dakota's friendliness and appreciation of the southern men has created general good feeling. I Many of the workers indicated they would be glad to come back if needed next year. -V Harvesting In County Almost Finished Up Due to unusually nice weather this fall, the combining and thresh- ing seems to be nicely cleaned up. We are truly fortunate to have this nice weather because we no- tice many farmers are putting much needed improvements on i,heir farm buildings. Many outer ~tlldings were started last year and never were finished until now, this being due to the bad weather ~nd late harvests. Many farmers are rebuilding this fall and many are shingling, painting and fixing up the old buildings. The Golden Valley chapter of Future Farmers have organized their program of work for the coming year and are able to secure from the department of agriculture here in Beach or from Fargo, re- qiable information concerning the improvement of farm buildings and surroundings, ~V = Dinner Honors 'Young' Ladies Mrs. Charles Doubles gave a chicken dinner for the young ladies of the eighteens at her home on Wednesday. ~12~ose present were lad~. who have long lived here.

NUMBER 3 Waves Want Two Girls From Golden Valley County During a two-week period Octo- ber 11 to 23, Beach area girls and women interested in enlisting in the WAVES will have an oppor- tunity not only to gain informa- tion about the WAVES, but to take aptitude tests and their final physl- cal examinations in Bismarck. A Naval WAVE Recruiting Board consisting of Lieut. (jg) P. O. Net- land, officer in charge of the boarl, Ensign Janet E. Murks, Yeoman Harriet Haggberg, Yeoman Eliza- beth Bonauch, a Navy doctor, and a nurse will headquarter at the Men~orial Building in Bismarck. The recrulting office will be open from 9 A. M. to 9 P. M. these days. October 18 and 25 a Navy doctor and nurse from Minneapolis will be in Bismarck to give physical examinations, permitting girls to complete enlistment at once. A Tea or Open House, sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary of Dickinson, will be held at the Memorial House House Building in Dickin~son Tuesday evening, Octo- ber 19, from 8 to 10 P. M. Girls and their~ mothers who are inter- ested in obtaining informatio~ about the WAVES are invited to be guests at this informal gather- ing. Present at the tea will be Ensign Marks and Yeomen .Ha~- burg and Bonauch, who will give any personal information desired. North Dakota girls enlisted dur- ing these two weeks will go as a unit to Hunter College, New York City for their basic trahflng. After five weeks, girls may be sent to other colleges or universities for specialized training in whatever field they select or for which they are selected. There are now 230 various as- signments WAVES may take. A year ago there were four Jobs, but girls were found so efficient on assignments that naval com- manding officers requested WAVES for many new jobs. The Navy plans to replace with WAVES every man possible on shore duty. "We have the greatest respect for the work demonstrated by these girls and are convinced that their services are an essential part of the building and efficiency of the Navy," state~d Lt. Netland while in Bismarck to arrange for the drive. A WAVE can earn up to $200 a month in addition to free uniforms and other privileges. From an educational standpoint the nation- wide travel and acquaintances is of equal nnportanee to that of the formal education. Further information about the WAVES can be secured from the Navy Recruiting station in the Bismarck post office building. -~V County Well Over Top in Bond Drive Latest reports from Chairman Grenier indicate that Golden Val- Icy county is really going places in the sale of Bonds and at the present writing the sales amount to $308,967.50, or 132% of the quota.
