OOOLEY, Foreman JOHN ELLING~ON, Secy.-Treasurer SAFETY MEASURES ISSUED AGAIN BY C W A DIRECTOR SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS WITH EXPLOSIVES SHOULD BE HEEDED In an article released to the press of the state this week, Roy G. Arnt- ~on, CWA director of safety, lists certain precautions in handling dyna- mite and other explosives Herewith is his statement: rock, tree stumps, road construction, or in any other way,.place or roaster first secure the servme of an experi- enced man; or consult an engineer, experienced in this class of work. If none are available locally, write to the safety department, Civil Wvrks Administration, Federal bldg., Bis- marck, and a list of names of experi- enced men to select from will be sent to you promptly "Directing inexperienced men to ~ndle d~mamite, or permitting them to do so, is nothing less than man slaughter, pure and simple. In addi- tion we urge the following simple rules wherever explosives are handled: 1. Do not smoke while using blast- ing caps or detonators or handle same near to open fire or sparks~ do not Store in any place, other than a maga- ~y. 2. Do not leave blasting caps near steam .pipes, hot water pipes, boilers, tmate~, or other hot surface, or leave them exposed to the rays of rite ~n or allow electric blasting ci~u~t~to~ come in contact with electric cables or wires. + 8.

A general underweight condition allows the n~ve endings to be~ ex- posed to shocks from extra-hal stimuli such as heal cold and noise, which would not be noticed if an insulating layer of fat were present. Nerves a~e like electric wires, Miss Latzke says, is unprotected they are likely to do considerable damage. Calcium is one of the few specific foods whieq influences directly the condition of the nerves and tht~ tour of the m~~cies. Dissolve2 ~n the body fluids which bathe the nerves and muscles, calcium controlg their abil- ity to contract or expaz,d regularly and smoothly. Valuable food soureeq of calcium are milk, cheese, dried vege~ab]res and green leafy vegetables. If each child under twelve receives a quart of milk a day and every adult nearly a pint, there will be no lack of the mineral in the daily food supply. Vitamin B is another food found to have a specific effect upon the ner- vous system. Even a partial lack of this vitamin ill the diet is exhibited as poor intestinal tone, lack of appe- tite and nervous irritability. Food sources of vitamin B are whole or cracked grains of wheat, dark farina, oatmeal, whole cornmeal, brown rice, green vegetables, tomatoes, and most root vegetables and fruits. Irritable underweight children, or nervous thin adults have been proven to respond quicMy and effeetively to a well planned diet rich in milk, green vegetables and whole grains, supple- mented with a little common judg- ment m the matter of work, sleep and Ifresh air.

Various ~ethods are ~aployed in securing the fish, some effeetiv9 and others indif- ferent, but all the fishermen get a big "kick" ot~t of it. So ardent have some of the anglers become that they have built houses on the ice in which to sit while waiting patiently for the 9like, pickeral and suckers. The hook, ne and sinker method is no~ the only one used. You will see vicious spears in the hands of some fishermen, and others will use nets. When you're lucky you carry home some good speci- mens. Yes they tell just as good fish stories in winter as in summer here. One Towner resident boasts of a distinction which he maintains no+ ma~y can duplicate. Frank PJpan says he has been a citizen of three nations. He explains is thusly: "I was born in Austria, and was there- fore an Austrian citizen. As a result of the war Italy annexed a part of Austria, consequently making me ah italian. Then I migrated to the Unit- ed States and went through the pro- cedure which makes an immigrant a citizen of this country." Who can beat that ? One of our county officials has a rather peculiar hobby. Did you ever see the botanical garden in the office U Will Sponsor High School Contests Dates for the thirtieth annual state high .~chool contests to be held at the University of North Dakota have been announced by A. H. Yoder, heaei of the extension division. The state event which was temporarily aban- doned last year will be l~Id Ma.v 17. 18 and 19. In a news-letter to be mailed to all North Dakota high schools plans for the state contest, that in the spring of 1932 attracted over 1200 entrants, have been outlined. Preliminary con- tests will be held in the ten districts, according to ~he plan inaugurated sevefat years ago to reduce the num- ber of participants in the final e~,ent. Test pieces for all music events have been listed in the letter and qualifications for music organiza- tions are outlined by Prof. John E. Howard. In the debate work the same plan will be followed as last year, i. e., di- vision of the state into districts, ac- cording to the location of the schools registered, with a tournament for each district. A deadline for entries has been set at February 17. Forty junior playmaker organiza- tions in state high schools will be eligible to participate in the one-act play contest but as to whether these groups win go direct to the state con- test or have district eliminations, it has not been definitely decided. An announcement will be made regarding this in the next news-letter. Declamation contests will be carried on under the rules adopted in 1932 which permitted two boys and two of Clerk of Court D. F. Grim ? For- rest has developed some plants ,there which would mak~ any greenhouse keeper green with envy. His collec- tion includes ferns, flowering plants, cactus, lillies, and a huge rubber-plant: Forrest follows a regular routine of watering the plants and changing soil. Sometimes during ,the summer he moves the plants outside for bene- fit" of direct sunlight. Towner affords an ideal location for a creamery, and the surrounding te~. ritory should supply sufficient busi'~,,~'~ ness for such an institution. This is essentially a cattle country so ~why should there not be a local market for dairy products. It is true that now beef cattle are chiefly raised, but with a local dairy market, the milking types of cattle would, no doubt, be raised on a comparatively large s~a]e. And now they say the wheat allot- ment +checks may come into McHenry county during the first week in Feb- ruary. I won't vouch for that for I'm afraid that is about as good a ~uess as any .previously mentioned. evertheless the contracts are ready to go to Washington, and the allot- ment lists will be the McHenry . county newspapers next week. Be ~sure ~yo9 secure a copy the lists for they will tell you acreage you have been alloted. You can't stop the automobile driv- ers any more, no matter the amount of snow. The roads drift in over night, but somebed~ has to go some place; so with Chains, a shovel and lots of determination the motorist is on his way and he gets there too. There are som~, hewers, who lutve abandoned their cars for the winter. they have devised methods of travel which a~'nearby as good. You see all sorts of horse-drawn convey. ances, from the graceful little cutters, so prized by the young swains of an- other day, to the large bob sleds on which has been mounted the body of the flivver. These busses and rigs are equipped with various sorts of con- veniendes. Electric headlights are not uncommon. Good coal heaters are~ installed to keep the occupants com- fortable. Perhaps you w~ll find' cu- ~lrioned seats, foot warmers, a wind- shield, cigarette lighters and arm rests Of course there is a swift team of to furnish the knee action and 2fee wJ~eeling. So tire only dif- ference between these winter convey- ances and the modern automobile is the license plate and four wheel brakes. ---t-- Now to the arithmetic lesson. What fee figures multiplied by 4 will ~ke precisely 5? Answer to last mk's problem:--219, 438, and 657. Speaking of Niagara Falls, heres' something to worry about: Lately the scientists have been called upon for a new calculation on the Falls, due to its recent misbehavior in going almost dry as the result of a strong east wind. The world is reminded that the $0,000 year old cataract eats four feet of its own bed every year. i~i~ bed, extending from the falls to Lake Eri~, being sixteen miles tong, ~11 last about thousand ~eitrS if everything continues in the same old way. But, cheer up, the world may have agree excitement to break the monotony before the falls reach the deadline on the calendar scientists for A. D. 28,058. We have a few earthguakes before time, or some ~m~que engineer placed in the White House, a new deal for Niagara. --4-- There is no use arguing with the nevttable; the only argument with the north wind is to put on your overcoat, jag Treatment of horses and mules f~ removal of bets should be done before Feb. 15.
