Comstock. Regional Director. Bureau of Realama,tlon. Billings, Mort'Vans. am]ounces. "Dean VCalster is preeminenC2y qualified o serve in that capacity because of his ir~tensive and diver~- fled knowledge of agricultural prac- tices in the Great Plains area, pa2ticulafly in North Dakota," ~k said. "The Bureau of Reclama~on is pioneering a new field in its pro- posal %0 irrl~te vast areas of the Ore~t Plallm now being oper~ under dry land farming practices," Comstook continued. "This trans*Cion will req~ilre a great deal of study and guidsmce.

Contract Let For The Garrison Dam Town Designing Cor~tract for the design of the construction town ~o be buil* near ~e site of the proposed darn south of Garrison, has been awarded by the Army Engineer Corps to John Latermer and Sons. Omaha architects. The architects will plan the town Which will be built before any work is done on the dam proper, I~. Col. De~be~t B. Freeman, District Engineer in charge, said. (~t Is not y~ known where ffle proposed town will be located. Rumors in Bismarck have it the, t ~wo sites are con&idered, one on the west side, north of Stan~on, and another on the,e(ast side, w.esz of Coledaarbor. However, all reports agree that the town will be built to accommodate a population of 10.000. .Freeman said all structures in the town will be# bull* and owned by the governmer~t. Commercial est~blisa'xments will be operated in these structures under concession atreements. He emphasized that no negotiation for concessions will be considered until after plans are completed the exact number and size of com- mercial struomres established and construotlon {acllities actually are sere'ted. At that time, he said, "adequa%e notice" will ,be given by published advex~tisemer~ts to ,all persons who are imerested in doing business in the construction town. These ad- ver~lsernen~ts will be similar o ,those used to notify prospective bid- ders on construction contract. A~thoug~ no money h~ yet been appropriated for con~ruetaon of the dam, funds for he design of the town have been made a~ail~ble and work will go forward at once. Construction of the town will be first on the army agenda in order that workers on the dam proper may have a place to live and may have f~cili ies for decent living. during ,their stay in the construc- tion area.

He is admin- istratively responsible o H~tson, the P~A Admin~s~rsvtor, but will report through the Director of the PlVIA Field Service Branch, headed by N. E. Dodd, ~ormer AA~ Chief. The Assistant Director, under t~e supervision and direvtlon of the State ~Director, will be concerned $055 The North Dakota War Chest "Be Generous in Victory" campaign which opens October 1, is going over w~th a bang. That's the opinion of Supreme Court Justi'ee A. M. Ghrlstianson who recalls the 1918 "VictmT Drive" of the United War Fund--an or- ganization similar to ,the National War Fund--which opines.ted for the benefit of servicemen and needy peoples in war-torn countries in the first World War. q'hat drive was slated to start November llth 1918---which was the day the armistice was signed erOd- ing the war against Germany," Ohristianson said. "Due to excitemeI~t and celebra- tion attending the even~, North Dakota United War Fund officials, postaponed the drive until November 18. Then started out in quest of funds. North Dakota in 1918 wasn't nearly so prosperous as she is to- day. Yet a generous citizenry came through with approximately one million dollars donation from th~s state to the national fund to heal the wounds of that first war. "North Dakota's goal in a sim41ar drive this year ~s only $345,0{)0--- about a third of the amount con- tr}buted to the "Victory Drive" in 1918. "And North Dakota today is more prosperous ~han at any time in her history. Bank deposits of in- dividuals have soared to almost 400~09200. Many millions more are nvested in stocks and bonds, postal avmgs and war securities~ Bins ~.d elevators are filled :o over- ,lowing with umrmrketed grain. ~astures are loaded with fat live- -Sock wh,ich will soon be ready for the market. "And another bumper crop is crowding the old crop for the mar- ket. "And in such a land of plenty, where citizens have escaped the scars of war, it would be strange indeed if the people would turn a deaf ear 'to a plea for help from those ~ho have suffered and are still suffering, paying the price for victory which has made us secure." 4-H Achievement Institute Likely News for 4-H club members in North Dakota is that their annual s~ate Achievement Instatute at NDAC will be continued this fo~ll, provided no further government re- strictions are imposed on holding of meetings. The 4~H club depart- ment of the E~tension Service says Oct. 30 to Nov. 2 has .been set aside for the event. H. E. Billing, st~e 4-H leader, adds that the number of delegates will be governed by existing emer- gency conditions, but it is hoped a full attendance of approxinmtely 500 will be possible. County 4-H org~nlzations are be- ing notified that Achievement In- stitute will be held and are being instructed to select their official delegates. &chievement Institute at NDAC has been the most important state event for North De~kota 4-H mem- bers for many years.

CORRECT CUTTING NECESSARY Corn should be cut for silage when the kernels are nearly glazed, at least 75 per cent, according to NDA~ Extension Service. If~ frost appears, corn should be cut im- mediately. Improved qualities of regular and premium grades of gasoline, about to come on the market, will cost no more ,than the lower qualities of these grades produced for civil- tan use during the war, OPA an- nounced recently. Premium grade g~soline is also being improved, and, as a result, OPA has lifted the minimum octane rating for this type gasoline from 75 to 78 octane. Dairy Production Ralph E.
