ANGLE _____..___ l The eyes of the nation are again turned to-l ward the far Pacific and the problems of the rc—l cent turn of Axis affairs due to Hitler taking on! Stalin and disturbing the ‘old deals between the; two and Japan which now leaves the Nipponese‘; out on a limb. Japan is nearly bled white from the war in; China which has run longer than the European: struggles, and certainly is no asset to Germany}. since the Russian embroglio has cut off any con-l nection and support from Japan which mightl help out Germany. i The Dutch East Indies is the real prize whichl Japan seeks to make up what is needed for foodi and raw materials but the United States standsi in the way with a naval force ready and willingl to go to the aid“ of the British arms to thwarti Japan’s aims.’ But the major factor in Nipponese thinking is the serious effect of cutting off gas and all] trade from this country which must follow J apanl taking in any more fighting territory; leavingl Japan isolated and with slight chance for helpl in any other direction. So while the Japanese ministry has been; shaken up the war party seems to be still in pow- er and doing the thinking, but the peace partyi which comprises the commercial and. industrial», element and the support of that nation, is fight—' ing against new war and breaking relations with. the United States. Japan is faced with the latest blow, freezingJ of its assets in America and England and in all' its domain, and the necessity of moving south to beat the blockade; while the watching fleets of the allies are clearing decks to meet the move to—I ward Singapore and the ‘Philippines, with the! prospect of real action any day. This means theI United States is in the war on both sides and in3 earnest. ' _\,‘_ W." I THE OLD ALUMINUM PANS The drive for old aluminum utensils and! truck has dug out several thousand more or lessl old and battered articles, and not a few not so oldl but perfectly good for their uses which the good- natured housewife has added to the collection; all of which means new business later on for alum- inum or “ersatz” products replacements, and per- haps in due time some new industries. The drive is alleged to seek this particularl product for building of airplanes, but it is doubt- ful if this old stuff is of particular Value for that purpose because of the difficulty of separating the dross materials in old manufacture to reclaim. the littlepure aluminum suitable for future use; However, this drive is one of several intended toi wake up the people to the realization of, the real I sacrifices ahead. Out of Washington comes hints of another drive, that for salvaging of waste paper, but at the moment we can think of no better way to save paper than stop sending out the tons of propa- ganda which is mailed from the national capitall bureaus every day; old pap'er has no value except for strawpaper and corrugated boxes and there is no demand or price to pay for the time and energy of the citizen in picking it up. Such pet- ty savings are but a drop in the bucket of nation— al spending. COULD SPARE SOME REDS The most vocal demand for support of Rus- sia against the Nazis comes from the Communist element which has about faced and urges this country to give all-out aid to the Soviets; yet there seems to be no marked movement of the sympathizers to go to help Russia fight. This country is having some trouble with this element! in its defense industries and could well, spare a lot of the Reds, but they prefer to stay here to make trouble and grow fat on the jobs. THE TRANSITION SIGNIFICANT It is significant that when any person, com- mittee or group of people want to reach the pub- lic they rush to the newspaper with reams of ex- ploiting copy to get help to market their bright ideas and pulsating plans. Seldom, if ever, do they consider that it costs money to hire print— ers and buy paper and that even an editor some- times needs a 65 cent hair cut. Therefore, this is due warning to the patriots and near-patriots who are preparing to beat a path to the doors of the Washington weekly press, in their plans to do altruistic things, that there has been a change of spirit come over the land and that editors, worthy of the name, are no longer on all-fours, as a community door mat. Newspaper work has come to be a business in this state, county and valley—Sumner Standard. BY RALPH HERBERT SOME seven years ago, 'when vast areas of the prairie states were being converted into dust bowls, the government planned to save other areas from a sim— ilar fate by planting shelter belts of trees. The scheme embraced the states of North and South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Okla- homa and northwest Texas. It was estimated that planting 21/2 million acres of trees would give protection to 50,000,000 acres of farm lands. The work was started by ex- ecutive order of the President in 1934. Actual tree planting be- gan the following year. To date, one-tenth the original plan has been effected. If the rate in the past is maintained, it will be 54 years before the whole scheme is consummated. An average of 40,000 acres of trees has been planted since the plan was started. Twenty-seven thousand farms have been provided with tree shelter belts. Sixteen thou- sand miles of trees have been planted. This means about 190,- 000,000 trees. They came from nurseries operated by the U. S. Forest Service. The government plants the trees, the farmers guarantee- ing for some years to look after them by hoeing the ground, get- ting rid of weeds and killing rodents. The total. cost to the government so far has been about $9,000,0 0. a: a: a, REES selected are those which it has been , found , thrive best in the prairie' states. Those most favored are cotton- wood, green ash, Chinese and American elms, Osage orange, hackberry, black locust, Russian olive, catalpa, tamarisk, willow, chokecherry, ponderosa pine, blue spruce and wild plum. The trees are planted in from five to ten rows. The center rows haVe the trees which grow tall. The back and front rows are planted with trees which are more on the bushy type. It has been found in the prai— rie states that the greatest enemy of the farmer is the wind.

Ed Casey’s South Dakota farm looked like this. Sand had drifted onto his land three days after tree planting started (top photo). Mr. and Mrs. Casey and the children are now happy and contented on the farm they were going to leave (lower photo). Their field windbreak planting of trees gets the credit for the change. Note watermelons grown on their farm in 1940. shelter belts are designed to protect farms from those winds. -i= fie . IT is claimed that the belts shield growing plants from being burned by hot winds; pre- vent wind from blowing the fertile top soil off the land; keep high winds from actually blow- ing seeds and young plants right out of the ground; prevent rapid evaporation of the water in the ground after a rain fall; slow up the growing crops; and give shelter to wild bird life, the lat- ter in turn helping the farmer by beating insects which other- wise would be free to attack the crops. In addition, it is claimed for these shelter belts that they give the farmer something which is very precious in the prairie re- gion—wood for fences and posts and fuel. transpiration of moisture from pleasant atmosphere of this dining room facing a’bacl: pailo and lawn.

DeLong, State Director of Selective Service, emphasized to- day. Under no circumstances wil the new group of potential trainees be classified and considered for [possible military training en bloc, the Director declared. Each man will have his .order number by which his Local Board will con- sider his classification and no Lo- cal Board can classify the individ- ual registrant until his number is reached, except in case of volun- teers, he said. The National Lottery served as a guide for every Local Board to integrate its new registrants among those who registered last Autumn, and that integration recent registrants will consider ,their classification only in a fair 1and equitable ratio to those men not yet inducted, Director De- Long asserted. It was pointed out that it was vobvious that the new registrants ,who had received the A, low order numbers would be clas‘ lsified sooner than those who had. mer residénts; but now living atlreceived the higher numbers.
