? PAGE EIGHT l tiE BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 1945 Local Coal Dealers Will Cooperate With Public The Bilings county Pioneer, in cooperation with retail coal deal- ers of Billings Cour~y and the federal Solid Fuels Administration, urge every citizen of this county, who normally use coal for heating and cooking and who again an- tictpate using coal during the 1945- 46 season, to file a "Consumers Declaration" with their retail coal dealer not later than May 15, 1945. According to W. J. Ray and John Taylor, .local coal dialers, if you place your "Consumer Declara- tion" and an order before May 15, 1945, with the dealer who regularly supplied your house or building with solid fuel last year, you are entitled to get, before Ootober 1, 1945, at least 30 per cent of your normal annual requirements if you are ready and willing, and able to take delivery of any usable fuel on terms agreeable to you and the dealer. The Solid Fuels Administration has stated that there will not be nearly enough solid fuel to give you as much as you ordinarily usa. Generally a dealer is prohibited from delivering, and a consumer is prohibited from receiving, under severe penalty, during the period April 1, 1945 to Ma~h 31, 19460 more than 80 per cent of the con- sumers normal annum require- ments. In view of the stringent control of the solid fuels ,users will be prompted to conserve fuel in every way they can. Stop your fires at the earllest possible date this spring and do not begin burning fuel next fall sooner than is ah- r solutely necessary. Keep the tem- perature down to 68 degrees or less. Shut off heat in rooms not in use. According to provisions of regula- tion No. 26, issued by the Solid Fuels Administration, a consumer who wants to buy any solid fuel (such as anthracite, bituminous coM, coke, lignite, briquettes, packaged fuel) must fill out and file form SFA-360 "Consumer Declaration" with his dealer. No dealer may deliver solid fuel to a consumer who does not file a consumer dec- laration with him. Due to the fact that retail out- lets of coal are on a quota basis, it is entirely possible that those not filing their "consumer declara- tion" forms before May 15, 1945, will have some difficulty in obtain- ing coal next fall or winter. Livestock Conservation Plan Effective May 1st A livestock truck commrvatlon plan will go into effect on May 1, 1945, in Bilings County it was an- nounced today by Alfred Schwartz Chairman of the BILlings County Livestock Industry ~rtatRm Committee. Mr. Sohwartz further stated Chat he had received word from James A. Jowders, District Manager of the Office of Defense Transporattion at Fargo, who is also Administrator for the Bismarck ~Lrea ,Livestock Industry Tr~trmpor- ~ation Advisory ~tee that a -similar plan had been adopted and will be placed into effect on this date in all counties under the jurisdiction of the office. The plan has been oompiled jointly .by ODT and the ~ism~xck Area Livestock Transportation Com- mittee who have been studying the problems in connection with livestock trucking for .the past five months. "I~ne plan was then sub- mitred to the ~illlngs County Com- mittee which is composed of A. T. Thompson, ~Fairfleld and Alfred Schwartz. Belfleld, representing the producer; W. F. Sylvest~r, Medora, and A1 Re ~dmond, ~elfield, repre- senting the for hire truckee. The Billings County Committee adopted the plan and is now charged w~h the reslmnsiblilty of administering it in this county. The local committee has been as- sisted in ther work by the County AAA offlcals and will use the County AAA offices at Betfield for ~helr headquarters. The local committee will render a~sistahoe to livestock truckers and producers by making reports to the Administrator on all pl~blems in .connection with maintai~ ade. qu~te motor truck &tcflities for moving livestock to m~rket from this county, Specifically the com- mittee is aiding on ,truck and tire problems, repair and replacement parts, and is now conducting a sur- vey to determine if there Will be a shortage of competent livestock truckers in the county, q[11e local committee has been requested to ~pu~lio .~ the method of submitting requests for deferment of livestock truckers to the Administrator. All truck drivers or mechanics between he ages of 18 and ~9 who ~vere ~class/fled 2-A or 2-]3 on January 1 of this year are el~le to use this procedure. Mr. Schwartz requests that truck- ~rs, producers, ~aulers, ~ and buyers of of ]lvestook cooperate bY strict adherence to the regttlatlons which provide that sli tru0ks, farm ~wned or commerc/al, carry eal~- city loads to market, tha~ truckers exchange listings of shipments when ~tcok can be picked uP with fewer miles, and that where feasible central dispatching offlce~ be or- ganlzed to route crucks efficiently, The plan also requests producers to list livestock adequately ,in ml- vance of their desired shipping date and lmve their stock really for loading in a pen. The plaR pro- hiblts the use of all trucks over l~on capacity for soliciting live- ~tock purchases, and regulates the movement of stock-from auction rings by motor truck to either pro- ~essing plants, terminal IZ~ts or producers for feeding and br~ purposes.

Stamps Individual Purchases Is Urged In 7th Bond "Nor~ Dakota is mobilizing its War Bond Army for service in 'the Seventh War Loan Campaign," F. L. Conklin, State War Finance Ohalrman, said today. "Following a series of six regional meetings of county War Fir~nce leadership held throughout the state," Conk- lin continued, "County War Fin- ance Chairmen and their Executive Committees axe planning the strategy and marshalling the strength needed to enable them ~o meet their 'Seventh War Loan quotas." Conkiin pointed out that the Seventh War Loan is the most difficult war finance task North Dakotans have been called upon to meet, because of its emphasis on sales to individuals and the high- est Series E Bond and individual sales quotas thus far established for our state. "Because this is true," the stute chairman said, "county committees planned to take the fullest advantage of the 90-day accounting period for Series E, F, and G Bonds and Series C Savings Notes, extending from April 9 th ~ugh July 7, by dividing ~e sales campaign into three parts."] The first part known as the Com-[ pany Quota Campaign is to be completed in April. In this cam- out between May 14 and July 7, I includes the person-to-person salesI campaign in rural townships; the house-~o-house campaign in the residential areas of the cities and towns; and, the personal solicita- tion of special lists of those invest- Ing $200 or more. The third part of the campaign, extending from June 18 ~hrough June 30, is the sale of market issues to non-bank- ing corporations and individuals. ~r. Conklin stated that under this plan of action County War Bond sales campaigns would be un- der~ay early and would continue w~th increasing force until t~e ac~ counting period closes on July 7. i He said .that with every county in our state planning carefully f~r the~ drive, and organizing thoroughly to unite and coordinate their forc- es, North Dakota will meet Fas full responsibility in the Seventh War Loan. = = =d . be Governor Calls On good through July 31.

Townfolks to Help Seeding Operation Gov. Fred G. Aandahl in a radio address last week appealed to North Dakota townspeople and high school youths to lend a helping hand to the state's farmers during the next 60-days' planting season. "The graveness of the situation makes it necessary to call for this unusual service." The governor said that, while during the last two years the emphasis on the farm labor prob- lem had been almost entirely on harvesting, a critical period this year will be getting the seed in the ground. '~Fnis year, I am glad to say, we can give North Dakota farmers assurance, backed up by arrange- ments already worked out, that an adequate supply of harvest labor will be forthconflng." The governor referred to ~ re- port by the state htbor advisory committee that 10,000 to 12.000 out- of-state farm laborers will be re- crulted for work in North Dakota grain harvest fields next fall, plus several ~dditional thousands for the beet and potato harvests. '~ut," he said, '~e will have to depend upon our own resources within North Dakota during the planting season we will have to call on our high school routh and our neighbors in town to get us over the hump."

Short Featured By Farm Magazine Con Short and Son who live near Medora in Billings county, are among a group of North Da- kota farmers featured in a story in the May issue of ~apper's Farm- er, entitled "North Turns to Corn," which describes their success in growing corn. "North Dakota farmers are learn- ing corn is one of their good crops" the s~ory in the nationally circulated farm magazine points out. "Acreage planted to corn is increasing for several reasons: Good northern hybrids are coming out, farmers have learned that wheat following corn will make nearly as much as that on fallow and is aI- most as effective as fallow to clean up weeds, and that corn fits in particularly well with livestock and soil-conserving programs. "Con Short and Son grow 200 acres of corn and pick only 40 acres of it. Last fall they finished nearly 200 hogs and 60 ~ig 2-year old steers in cornfields. A~ter the hogs and steers were fattened, the fields were used to carry stock o~ttle through winter. "Corn is more economical in the use of moisture than wheat. J.C. Thyseil, Northern Plains Experiment Station, Mandan, says it takes 700 pounds of water to produce a pound of dry matter in the form of wheat, but corn will produce a pound on 400 pounds of water. Several experiments in the state, show that corn will produce more feed an acre than any other grain crop grown in North Dakota." FOR SALE--Concert Grand Pla~a and one Simmons baby crih. W. A.

CO-OP GRAIN CO. THE OLD JUDGE SAYS. "Judg remember that place up in the moun- tains where we went trout fishing last year?" "I sure do. George. We had a great time up there, didn't we?" "I'll never forget it. But this will interest you, Judge. I heard just yesterday that the revenue men raided a big still right near there. Guess that's where all that hi h- pficed m(xmshine we heard about has been confine from." "Wouldn't be a bit surlx sed. I saw in the Pal the other day where the Government has raided thoumn& of such stills during the past year." "Sounds sort of reminiscent, doesn't It. Judge?"
