THE BOISE CITY ]0000[EWS FORMERLY THE C1MARRON NEWS Volume 45 Boise City, Cimarron County, Oklahoma, Thursday, June 17, 1943 Number 50 Quints Hold Center of Stage in Launching Vitam;llS for Victory F Human Interest BY FRieD R. KREI,GER The leader of a brass bans sent a letter to a music ptthlisher, which read: "Please send us some music without sharps or flats-- the boys don&apos;t pay any attention to them, anyway!" And this reminds ,me +.utt people who write much, know very little about punctuation marks. No one in fifty can clear- ly define the meaning of a period, comma, colon, semi-colon, apotro- Fhe, a dash, the asterisk, para- graph mark, exclamation point, hy- phen, parenthesis, and the question mark. From the copy I receive here at the linotype in the News office-- not from novices---but ,from pro- fessional ,men, stenographers, and other so-called learned gentry, it appears that they use these punc- tuation marks with about as much learning and precision as a fellow would sprinkle .salt and pepper on fried eggs. I once head a neigh- bor say, "Chat fellow knows more about nothing than anyone I ever met!" And nearly every time I receive copy from some wiseacre, I'm impressed tha he knows less about the language he uses sc First Wheat Arrives Here Etling Grain Tests High In Protein Seven true loads of wheat, the first for the season, rolled in to the elevator Tuesday afternoon. It came croon Carl Etling's field nort of town. The average weight of the wheat was 60 lbs. er bushel, which is number one wheat. The first day's cutting was averaging a little better than 15 ,bushels to the acre, w.hich was better than had een estimated. "Dhe grain tested very high in plxr_An. CANNERS MUST USE CARE IN SELECTING JARS Serious accidents nmy dog .the ootsteps of people canning food Shis .summer unless @ome precaut- ions are taken, warns I)r. DeWitt Hunt, safety specialist at the Okla- h<ma A. & M. College. Glass jars which contained may- much than anything else in life. Casey Jones doesn't like this i crazy Ibusiness. He's sure mad. He loaned his chains and boomers to some guy about three months ago, and now lhe needs them badly, and doesn't know where they are. He further stated that oh well, guess you can surmise just what he sMd. During recent years while the pendelmn of political strategy was swingirg in favor of,beneficient la- bor laws and increased regulation 0f business, vote seeking politicdans have time and again stepped across the line in their capacity as law makers to show open-armed avor- ilium to certain groups. Out of welter came such 'laws as the Wagner Act, the Nabional Labor Relations Act, the Guffey Coal Act, and others. Thee# ,laws were drawn to appeal  ;0/' or- ganized labor. Justice and  na- tional welfare were ignored. Labor racketeering and strikes increased. Evil as these are, especially in wartime, smething worse has come of the class-conscious legis- lative thinking tat ,has ruled Washington the "past few year --- a frightening admiration for per- serial government 0hat has sprung up withdn the groups which the politicians have patronized. If this admiration prevails indefirfitely, the repubUc will likely perish, for it was founded on a government of laws, not of men-=-and its laws must `be just ff we are to survive. I may ,be all right for She people to have their idols in basall, mo- tion "pictures, on the golf links and ootball .gridiron, and among croon- ing cboy arlsts---even for the girls to have their favorite fellas--- but the goverament should not be used to further the social status, financial rating, or ,political pre- domance of any individual. Wages For Harvest Hands Discussed Much  been said recently con- cerning wages gor harvest work in Cimaxron county this year. At a meeting of the County F,m La- bor Advisory Committee held in the county gent's office May 29, ,prices were discussed and the ffol- lowing wages were recommended: Combining- Two dollars an acre where the yield does not exceed 15 bu., five cents ,per bu. to be al- lowed for any mnount over 15 bu. Truck drivers, tractor drivers, sco- opers and conbine men should re- ceive 5 to  dollars per day accord- ing to the type of work performed and ability of the person working. It ws the opinion of those pre- sent that the yield of wheat would not be more than 5 to 12 ,bu. per acre over roost of county. Bible School Closes With Program Friday The vacation Bible school which has `been in progress for two weeks at the Baptist church will close l riday evening at eight ,p. m. Ttis school has been a uoce in every ,respect. The children en- joyed every part of it. The faculty and children invite all "parents and friends to come to the elmrch t eight o'clock p. m. l%idRy and enjoy r[th them the eloaing exercises. The students will give demonstrations of their Bible Work, and will .have the ,hand work on dplay at the clo@e f the sm'- I onalse, pickles, and other commer- cial products are not always tem- pered, tbt is, treated to wthgnd intense .heat and .may .blow u@ when used for canning purposes, Dr. Hut advises. Such jars usually do not have enough tlreads to hold a top if much pressure forms underneath it, i and also enough pressure can not i ,be put on such thread to hold safe- ly. These jars may be used for "pick- lea,, relishes, etc., which do not have to 'be ,processed. Many people who have never can- ned any thing before will try to put up some home.grown products this year, Dr. Hunt tldnlm, and he believes that R lll ,pay Rtc indi- viduals to get jam .fy know will be safe efore an eye is lost or a serious burn is sustained. Address Mail By District *: Large Cities Withdn a few days after initi- ation of the plan, under instruct- ions of Potsmaster General Frank C. Walker, nearly aUl the post- C. Walker, nearly all the post- had asaigued postal uni$ numbers to their branch offices, milLions of residents have ,been advised of the ntmber to be added to their addresses, and a considerable vol- ume of mail already w-as carrying the numbers as&igned. Rapid increase in volume of rn and the loss of some thirty thousand postal employees ,to e armed forces made i necessary to adopt the .plan, in the intre of accurate, efficient mail service and for the aelief of postal per- sonnel ho are carrying an ex- tremely heavy burden of work. An example of the new type of adress is: John C. Smith 222 Mtapan Ave. Boston 8 Maachusetts The number ogler the name of te city indicates e ,bmch "post office (or "postal unit") threugh wch deRvery is ;made. Each resident of the large cities is asked by his .postnutster to wid the pos- Col unit number to / return ad- dress, nd to n<tify all to whom he writes that his adadrea is not com'plete without fltv rmmber. Uuder the new plan, mail that .s sent to large cities, carrying the postal unt nmber, will ,be di- Cributed more quickly than is poilble now nd with much le strain on ooatal clerlm. GOOD ATTENIIANCE AT CANNING SCHOOLS The three canning demonstrations given in Keyes, Boise City, and Kenton by Miss Eunice Stith, As- sismt Food and Nutrition Special- ist, from ,Stillwater, ,proved to be sucessful in every way. Te Keyes demonstration was iven in the American Legion .Hall with thity-ive women prescott. Thirt: y-tw women attended the demonstration given in the Boise Cty Hams ,Economics department. Kenton eld an all day meeting with canning demonstrations in the moaning, a covered dish luncheon at noon and the regular home dem- onstration chub meeting in the af- ternoon. ,Sixteen women attended. Miss Edsel, County Demo lion agent, said ever}one was well pleased with the suece f the chook. Eighty thousand spectators packed the hge Butler shipyards at Su- Imrior, Wis., to witness the floating of five brand-new Allied vessels--and also the Dionne Quints' first appearance on American soil. The Quints, whe acted as spousors, are shwn before a U. S. immigration officer. Wheat Crop Damaged By Hail Small Percentage of Loss Covered By Insurance According to a careful survey made by County Agent, Wm. E. Bker, much, damage was done to wheat ,by She hail which fell here June 7 and 8. ,r Baker gives the following report on the damage done last week: hail on the evening c June 7 evidertiy started about five miles south of Keyes. end 2 miles west: and continued in a northeasterly direction, passing out of Cimarron county about four miles from the Kansas line, or two miles east and three miles north of Sturgis. The distance traveled ,in Cimarron coun- ty was about 22 miles. The .path was from two to ,four miles wide. The damage from this hail ranged from ten per cent on the outer edge to 100 per cet in the center of the .ltth. T hail .storm under date of June 8th started about five ,miles norsh and two miles west of Bodse City, and continued almost rectly east bout 14 or 15 miles. The pa was a Iftle broader than the one east of Keyes, rnging from two to four miles wide, with a 10 per cent danage at the outer edge incma#ing to 100 per cent in te center. frhe area covered ,by those two storms represents about two own- ships, or 72 square miles. Taking the average wheat per section in this area, it would indicate that t least 10,000 acres have `been dam- ged. This wheat, before the ha1, indicated an average of about ten bushels. The average damage in this area would be about 33 1-3 per cent, including the lighter damage with the heavier damage. This would indicate a loss in bushels of wheat by he storm of nearly 33,- 000 bushels. I feel that an estimate of `between 30,000 and 35,900 bush- els is very nearly correct. Unfortunately, only a small per- centage of the farmers had hil in- RU'$JIC. Win. E. Baker, Cotmty Agent.
