The standard of quality of tlvesock to dot the farms of this country in the future is being deter- mined today by this ever-increasing number of po- tential young farmers and farmereHes. Dad may not have been developing the mem- bers of his livestock family as he should have been. Too busy with his grain crops perhaps, but knowing that he admired in cattle, horses and hoqs for which his mouth watered but he did nothing about. Now that youngster of his thru the encourage- ment of farm bureau advisers is making Dad migh- ty happy and proud by having livestock that mer- its exhibition at the county fair and is awarded ribbons. Besides, it gives Dad a "darned" qood excuse to spend more time at the fair. The future of the quality livestock on the farm is in the hands of .+he youngsters of today who will be the farmers of tomorrow. And it's in safe hands. $ I1( $ DRAFTEES NOT ENTHUSIASTIC OVER EXTENSION OF SERVICE Reports of folks who have visited the traininq camps since Congress passed the law compelling draftees to stay in the service 30 months, soy that they found a sick bunch of young Americans.

NEW YORK LEGION DOESN'T LIKE GOVERNMENT'S NEW BEDMATE The American Legion of New York state has come out fiat-footed against the extending of aid to Russia in no uncertain terms. Here is the way their resolution r, ead: "We destest the ideologies of both these tyr- annical governments. Communist Soviet Russia did not enter this war for the purpose of aiding any government whose principles are founded up- on democracy or decency, but to protect itself against an aggressor whose ideology cells for ruth- less murder, the same as Stalin does." The resolution also expressed full support of the Dies committee investigation into unAmerican activities. "WakeUpr' says the President. The lack of war fever which seems to be missing in most parts of the country clled forth the above statement which seems just a bit too harsh when one thinks of the thousands of young men who have given up businesses ana pro- fess!ons to take a hitch in military training. We !1 admit that the sfaggering blow after blow of 7 bllion, then an uppercut of 5 bil- lion, and a left and a right to the bed t for 4 billion and] 6 billion, does have a tendency to make one more or less groggy, don't you think) COPELAND MRS.
