/ They Made a Mess o~ Recipient's Sel/-Esteem Girls who broke off their engage- ments to servicemen in a certain outfit in the Southwest Pacific re- ceived a severe shock. When a man out there received a letter from his girl friend, say- ing she was tired of waiting, he didn't, as a rule, retire to nurse his broken heart in solitude. He would pin the letter on the camp notice board. The other men in the unit would then read the letter and scribble on it what they thought of the girl. Then after three or four days it was taken down and mailed back to her. These candid symposiums were known as "mess pots." CLASSIFIED DEPARTMENT I BUSINESS & INVEST. OPPOR.

This was one of the major conclusions of importance to all North Dakotans at Missouri river meetings held at Omaha recently and attended by Kenneth W. Simons, vice chairman of the state water conservation commission. The Garrison dam, Sim o n s reported, will be built by army engineers to a height of 1,875 feet above sea level and the "maximum normal operating pool level" will be 1,850 feet. He said the dam will cost approximately $123,000,000, will be nearly two miles long, and will impound more than 23,000,000 acres of water. "In the effort to get money for the construction of these projects North Dakota will have the backing of this state united behind the coordinated program plus~ th e backing of 10 other states in the Missouri basin," Simons said. He said the Missouri river basin committee had agreed to ask Congress to immediately appropriate money to begin the work. "Since the Garrison dam is number one on the army list of projects and the Heart Butte dam is number one of the bureau of reclamation list in North Dakota, if anything is done in the Missouri basin, North Dakota will get a lion's share of the initial work. The integrated plan provides ~or the development of all o~r tributary streams by the bureau of reclamation and the construction of other main-stem dams by the army engineers in the lower river." FIRE CAUSES MINE DAMAGE SAWYER--Fire which started from unknown origin recently de- strayed the coal tipple and loading facilities of the Quality Lignite mine south of Sawyer ~-ith damage es- ~ated at between $10,000 and $15,- The machine shop and warehouse, including all electrical equipment, was destroyed. L. C. Stearns, owner, says he hopes to have a new tipple in opera- tion within 30 days and in the meantime will supply customers at the pit. Mine manager is B. L. Ka- rains of Mlnot and John Dixon is fcreman. The loss was partially covered by insurance. A call was made to the Minos fire department and Acting Chief Claude Metz and Joe Fruntz of the depart- ment went to the mine. They were able to save a few things with chemicals. A high wind and slowly burning l~gnite coal made the fire a stubborn one to fight. Three tires were burned from a truck and coal in the metal box of the truck bm'ned. N. Dak. Nurse Is Awarded Bronze Star GLEN ULLIN--Lt. Florence Ber- ger was recently awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious achievement in connection with military operations in Italy. Lt. Berger is now serving with the 300th General hospital in the Mediterranean. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Berger of Glen Ullin, she is a graduate of Glen Ullin high school and the Iowa State college. She was a dietitian at Stanford University Hospital, Calif before being com- missioned as a medical department dietitian in the Army Nurse Corps in' March, 1943. Lt. Berger's brother, Capt. John E. Berger, has also received a Bronze Star for his service in Germany. Ruso Farmer Has Car In Norway Here's a story his old neighbors are telling on Tom Buchold, old time farmer seven miles south of Ruse, who is now living in the Twin Cities, and it is probably true. When Tom was. visiting his aged father on the old home farm in Norway just before the erman inva- sion, he shipped a new automobile to Norway when he sailed for the old homeland. He got wind of the coming inva- sion, and as he had no way of getting the ear out, he dug a cave into the side of ~l hill on the farm, drove the car in and covered the opening of the cave with earth. He intends to go back to Norway ~s soon as he can to see his father,~ if he is still alive, and to recover his car if the Germans did not find it. THE BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Soldier Drops Message By Plane JAMESTOWN--Recently when a 21 passenger army transport flew over the state carrying a load of soldiers westward, a former resident of Jamestown found a novel way of telling his relatives that he was on the plane. Lt. Oscar Bjelland wrote a note to his cousins, Nina Baker and Mrs. Floyd Burchill, stuffed it into an ice cream container, weight- ed it down and dropped it from the plane as it roared over this city. A Jamestown youngster, Burnell Demo was watching the plane, saw the object fall and hurried to pick it up and deliver the note. The note told the relatives Lt. Bjelland was e~route from Newark, N. J to meet his wife in Sumner, Wash before going to the Pacific for duty. Grafton Soldier Is Guest of Pres. Truman GRAFTON--A Walsh county ser- viceman, who has been on guard duty at the White House in Wash- ington, D. C was a guest at a party given by President and Mrs. Harry S. Truman recently. He is Cpl. William Kubousek of Forest River. On guard duty since last March at the White House, Cpl. Kobouseki and the other guards were restricted for two weeks before and after V-J liay. Unable to leave the premises because of the huge throngs near the premises when word of Japan's surrender was announced, the presi- dent "threw a party" for the guards when the hub-bub had ceased: Invited into the White House, Ku- bousek and the other guards were introduced and shook hands with the president and his wife. They were then guests at a movie and later beer and cheese and crackers were served. Woman Credits Life To Dog STANLEY--Mrs. Lena Molzhon, 72, credits her dog with twice sav- ing her life when she was recently attacked by a cow with a newborn calf. Mrs. Molzhon said the dog came to her rescue and drove the enraged cow away after it had knocked her down, breaking Mrs. Molzhon's hip and dislocating her shoulder. Then, said Mrs. Molzhon, the dog lay down close beside her and kept her warm throughout the night. Mrs. Molzhon was found lying in the pasture, the dog still close be- side her,23 hours later by a son-in- law. In a Minor hospital, where she was reported in good condition, Mrs. Molzhon said she does not believe she could have survived the chilly night if it had not been for the dog. Colleges Provide Vets Apartments GRAND FORKS--With approxim- ately 200 veterans of World War II expected to attend the University of North Dakota when the fall term begins September 24, a solution of the housing problem on the campus is being met by the construction o~ low-cost apartments now being re- modeled from army barracks. Eight of the two-room apartments will be completed in time for the fall term. About twenty more will be available during the school year as rapidly as they can be constructed. The apartments comprise a separ- ate community center on the cam- pus with private entrances on land- scaped courts. They will rent for $30 to $35. The apartments, composed of liv- ing room, bedroom, bathroom with shower bath and kitchenette with gas stove, steel sink cabinet and ice- box, will be partially furnished in early American style maple furni- ture. The overall size of the steam heated units is 20 feet wide by 24 feet long. Only married veterans of World War II will be eligible to rent the apartments. Fargo Soldier Is Liberated FARGO---A Fargo mother, who has not seen her son since he left for army duty four years ago has recently learned that he is among American prisoners liberated from a Japanese prison camp. The mo- ther is Mrs. Mazie Wayne and the text of her recent telegram from Gem Ward F. Witzell, acting adju- tant general of the army is as fo]~- lows: "The secretary of war desires me to inform you that your son's name, Pfc. Wehrkamp, Leroy V appears on a list of personnel at Camp Ha- ten, Mukden, Manchuria, dated Aug. 26, received from the American camp commander. As further in- formation is received you will be, inI~med." Last word received by Mrs. Wayne: from her son was a letter written from Formosa in August, 1944, and received in December of that year, Beulah Lad Dies Struck By Auto BEULAH~Cyril, 14-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Erickson re- cently was the victim of a tragic accident on the Main Street here when he stepped out between two cars to cross the street and was hit by an approaching car.

Name Address Plane Speedily Strings Wires Over Mountains As the stringing of military tele- phone lines through swamps andi jungles and over mountains is slow and dangerous work, a math-: od of laying such wire from a plane has been perfected, and was dem- onstrated a short time ago in the Great Smoky mountains of Ten- nessee by an army plane, says Collier's. Flying at 150 miles an hour, it parachuted the lead end to one group of engineers, paid out 16 miles of wire and dropped the far end to another group, in less than seven minutes. Connecting the lead end to a field set, one member of the first group talked for four minutes with a man in the air, and thereby es- tablished for the first time com- munication over wire between the ground and a plane in flight.
