i Thursday, November 4, 1943 THE GOLDEN VALLEY NEWS PAGE THREB 1 'HIE GOLDEN VALLEY ws" Published. Every "rl~m'l~:lay by ......... PUBLISHING CO. A. 8hipmgn, Editor ~d as Second Class matter a~ ~e Postoffice at Beach, North Dakota, October 7, 1936, under the Act of March 3, 1897. A PERMANENT PEACE Armistice Day, twenty-five years after the event it celebrates, lives on. It was popular, formerly, to say that Armistice Day was differ- ent from other great days, that it would be remembered only as long as peace lasted. Memorial Day, it formerly was said, Americans shall always keep to "blow bugles over the rich dead" who know dawn no more or sunset and the colors of the earth and, who, dying, "made us rarer gifts than gold." Christmas Day would remain, it was said, whatever of Joy or sor- row comes, so long as there are children and men and women who become children. Independence Day would not al- low America to forget her national natal day, even ff a new calendar were to give it a new place in the year. The birthdays of Washington and Lincoln were to keep their February places, for their deeds have "bid in" these days for as long a time as the nation lives. To Columbus Day still others were in time, no doubt, to be added. And Than]csgivlng Day was to continue to be celebrated with every harvest, whether it be plenti- ful or lean. But as these great national days continue to be celebrated, so will Armistice Day be remembered while the nation lives--not as the day that marked the end of all wars, as It was hoPed twenty-five years ago, but as marking the first ffreat victory over the global forces of evil. It was the knowledge that Ger- many was defeated in 1918, more than anything else, that gave civili- zation the courage and inspiration to carry on in the dark days of 194 and 1942. Although Armls- Day did not bring permanent I~tee to the world, it was a har- of it and as such has won a Immanent place in the calendar. v CHEMIST AND FARMER Wartime developments in chem- istry are opening new horizons for agriculture. Out of retorts and flasks in chemical laboratories are coming developments, born of stark necessity, that\ will give farmers Undreamed-of marlCets for their crops when peace comes. On America's farms the products of chemical research are helping to fulfill the promise that record production goals will be attained. Thls year, more than ever before, meadow and plain and pasture must yield every possible ounce of food and fiber for civilian and military needs. Chemists are aid- ing in that Job, But they are looking ahead, too. In Texas, a research worker has discovered a method to treat cotton Wlth synthetic resins to produce a fibrous composition material from which clothes can be made Without weaving the cotton into cloth. On Mississippi and Louis- lana farms, acres of sweet potatoes have been planted to produce the 500,000.000 pounds of starch for- merly imported from the tropics. More than 200,000 acres of South- ern cotton land will eventually pro- ~t~ee sweet potatoes. Corn and wheat are going into the manufacture of industrial al- eOhol by the hundreds of thou- rereads of tons. Vegetable oils are transmuted into paints, varnishes and e4aamels. The once-discarded Whey from cheese factories now m~akes milk sugar, ethyl alchohol and glycerine. Farm produce ~rom l~0re than 40,000.000 acres in the United States is now used by chem- m~Zle manufacturers, and the Farm Chemurgic Council believes that Within the next decade, 50,000,000 additional acres may be required to meet the demands of industrial ~arm crops. -----~V LONGING FOR HOME It was recently said by one of the senators who visited world hattlefronts, that the question most frequently asked by the ser- Vice men in these far spots "When do we go home?" youth. "see the world." co~n~ to see many try and often Of the and to wish for the o~d home life. There they have long time friends, home comforts, pleasant amuse- ments end opportunities in work and bmdness. Homesickness affects some men quite a bit. It has led some to a melancholy state of mind that does their health no good. The American people ardently hope for the end of the war and the time when the desire to come home can[ be gratified. Home will seem likei a wonderful place to mlllidns of[ men after this experience Our service men will meet this desire with the same fortitudel they show in all troubles of war. t They are determined to fight thisI war through to a finish and give! the Nazis and Japs the licking they need There are some who need to return soon because of wounds, sickness or various causes. It would be a fine thing if it was possible to give the boys a rest period at home after a long period of service. The critical situation in the war, distance of these battlefronts from home, and the lack of vessels to carry them, may make such plans impractical, for the immediate present anyway. The spirit of the army is admir- able, and orders are cheerfully l obeyed. HOPE AND FEAR The American people alternate between hope and fear on the speedy ending of the war. In the main they are optimistic, inclined to look on the bright side. Perhaps they do sometimes when there should be a greater realization of danger. Government authorities keep warning us that a bitter fight is ahead before the strong Nazis are beaten. It was recently claimed that Ger- many still has an army of around 8,500,000 well trained and equipped men. Such a force can't be put out of business soon, unless the morale of the home front cracks. Thelre has been no conclusive evi- dence that it is doing so. There Is opposition to the im- mediate drafting.of fathers for war service. The country may chafe .u~der higher taxes or new restric- tions on daffy life. The recent surrender of Italy sent a great wave of hope through the land. The thought that one of the three Axis partners had gone busted con- vlnced many that the remaining two would go before long That point of view ignored the fact that in many w~tys the Ger- marts have been living fairly comfortably. They have drained food from the countries they have conquered, and have probably beenI fairly well fed. They should be l far better off in that respect thanI in 1918, when tl~y had access to[ only lim/tod seaports, and had oc-I cupied relatively little territory. I [Now vast populations axe required ] to work as slaves for their benefit.'| Hopeful features in the situation are the greatly superior Allied air power, the shortage of oil in Ger- many, the curbing of the sub- marine menace and the nmnificent striking power of the RUSSian, American and British armies. But those armies have a big job ahead. V APPRECIATION NEEDED One of the problems in the life of a "town is to find people who are willing to take the lead in getting needed things done. It happens in many towns that the HIGH BLOOD PRDSURE | Dangerous High Blood Pressure (Essential Hypertension) is usually marked by distressing symptoms such as dizziness, throbbing head- ae~es, sleeplessness and nervous- ness. If disregarded, this may lead to Heart Trouble, Stroke~ Paralysis, Hardening of the Arteries or Kid- ney Trouble. "Diamonex~ discovery of a heart specialist, is designed w quickly aid in the relief of then distressing symptoms. A Chicago r~sident says: "I suf- fered from High Blood Pressure for several years with increasingly severe throbbing headaches, dizzi- hess and shortness" of breath. I showed the Diamonex formula to my doctor and, on his advise, tried the treatment for two wesks under identical conditions as previous treatments. Within only three days my bad headaches and dizzy spells were gone. My high blood pressure was reduced and I sleep fine." Diamonex goes directly to work In three.different ways to aid in the relief of these dangerous syrup. ~oms. Results are speedywwtthin as short a time as two weeks suf. refers often find that Diamonex has accomplished 75~ of the total re- duetien possible with this formula. If you suffer from High Blood Pressure ~,ou may try DIAMONEX without r|sking a penny. To intro- duce this wonderful treatment to a million new sufferers this liberal trial offer is made for a limited time only. Send only $1.50 to the Diamonex Company, 318oA North Michigan Ave.. Chicago, Illinois for a full TWO weeks suppl~ of genuine DIAMONEX, prepmd. Use Dia. monex according to the no VINE Co', LOCA /-II I"Q bS people realize the existence of some defect or the need for action of some kind, but there is a lack of those who will take the ,lead and do the work of organizing necessary to accomplish desired results. It helps the spirit of progress if the people who ~re trying to do the work of carrying on or- ganizations and promoting needed movements get warm appreciation for what they do. If a person works hard in some public cause, and people take little notice of his effort, he has little encourage- ment to keep on. Hut if his praiseworthy efforts are warmly applauded, and people express hearty thanks and gratitude, he has an incentive to keep on with his most useful efforts. ~V SERVICE MENS' CHRISTMAS The New York post office re- ported the greatest mailing rush In its history, due to the big rush of Christmas gifts to overseas ser- vice men. The six millionth pack* age thus sent abroad went out before the deadline closed. One unfortunate item in the rush was that many of these packages were] not put ~lp strongly enough andI were broken and scattered beyond J repair. I Most of the service men are ]going to get these renmmbrazices, and how they will be treasured. Some little ~hnple thing will seem like a princely gift when received on the crags of a mountain or l on a to~lng ~hip cross the globe. The home will seem nearer and the boys will see the bright and shin- ing faces of the senders. A tre- mendous ammmt of love goes with those parcels. ~V,~ WHAT DO WE WANT? "This countries and our allies would be far safer if an army of wildcatters could venture forth to- morrow and drill their heads off to find the necessary fuel for the war effort," says the National Petroleu~ - News. It points out that an advance of one dollar a barrel for crude oil is as nothing compared to the danger of an oil shortage which this nation faces as a result of arbitrarily holding the price for crude oil at a figure which discourages rather than eno courages the fullest incentive to locating new sources of supply. Supposing such an advance meant two or three cents increase on a gallon of gasoline--what is that compared to no gasoline? The country has plenty of car drivers, but it could use more cow drivers in wartime. COMPLETES COURSE OF STUDY Rex Hemnes has saUa~torily completed the prescribed course of study at the Naval Tralni~ School. Navy Pier, Chldago, Ill., for diesel curriculum, and is now at Wash- ington, D. C. ge~ to school The brkles all look so awfully sweet, that It is no wonder the bridegrooms want to take the~z away for a time. N E RVI N POWERS FARGO COFFEE .... NORTH ~=~ SHOP DAKOTA The past few months have witnessed a Iot of talk by business about being all-out for victory. Food is an important factor in anyone's all-ou~ effort, and the Powers Coffee Shop is, as ever, a|l-out in its efforts to serve only the very best f~od, at pocket-pleasing prices. I 'M TI-IIZ GUY who looked at you from a U S O poster a litile over a year ago. I'm the guy you forked over $34,000,000 for -so that, through the USO, you could let me and all my buddies know that someone home still thought about us-stall cared enough not to want us to miss out on any of the things we were in uniform fighting for. A hot cup of coffee for example, when you come in all grimy and tuckered out from a little "business" trip... .. A dub house with easy chairs to melt into md desks to sit at and write home and a dance floor and some decent girls to give "us out here a litde reminder of what it's still like back there. You remember, don't you? You probably dug deep for a lot of other things that year, too...for British War Relief, United China Relief, and so on. Well, this year it's going to be simpler for you. Because this year, seventeen war relief agencies have banded together into one great big campaign -the Nationa, War Fund. This time you are only asked to give 0no, for all seventeen. And take it from me, as one who ought to know, that contribution you're going to make USO United Seamen's Service War Prisoners Aid Give ONCE British War Relief Society French Relief Fund f or/1LL these Greek War Rehe/Association Norwegian Relief Polish War Relief Queen Wilhelmma Fund Russian War Relie~ United China Reliei United Czechoslovak Relief United Yugoslav Relief Fund Refugee Relief Trustees United States Committee for the Care of European Children is one o~ the greatest things yeu can do to bring about victory. Not just because part of it's going to USO to do wonders for the morale- of the fellows under arms, but because a good; deal of it is going to help relieve distress~ at home through local agencies--as well as, abroad, to help keep our allies in the fight.. So when you're asked to give to the united' campaign of the National War Fund and our community's own war fund this month, re- member me. Every dollar you give helps me out in countless ways, and does its bit m bring me home sooner. Give in a big way, will ya? NATI ONAL WAR FUND MAKE YOUR CONTRIBUTION THROUGH War Chest C
