A." has been developed to such a high degree*that the war-born synthetic rubber industry will probably con- tinue long after the war. As of December 31, 1944, the average age of all passenger cars on the road was seven years, ment during a critical period of - constantly increasing activity in far flung military operations. He ably contributed to the develop- ment and procurement of bringing equipment, demolition equipment, airplane landing mats, portable pipe lines and heavy construction equipment. "In spite of the wide scope of his duties, his leadership, energy, con- scientious application and his en- gineering judgment always insur- ed a high quality of performance. His achievements have contributed materially to the overall war ef- fort." Bismarck Youth Killed Instantly BISMARCK -- Ralph Dilger, 22, driver for the Midnite Express company here, was killed instant- ly recently when the pick-up truck he was triving swered off the road west of' the Missouri river bridge on Highway 10 and crashed into the ditch. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Dilger. He was found by Paul Manley, driver for Winston Newell, who was driving a little ahead of Dilger, heard the crash and saw the pick-up roll over. DiN ger was found with the frame of the truck on top of him. According to Deputy Sheriff E. O. Lidstrom of Morton county, it appeared as though Dilger was trying to pass the Winston Newell truck when he lost control of his own vehicle. Lidstrom said that Dilger may have been trying to look at some bills which were found near his hand and which he may have been hold- ing at the time. He was a discharg- -ed veteran of this war, having en- tered the service in February, 1943. Besides his parents, he leaves two sisters and two brothers. i TWO CITIES FACE FUEL SHORTAGE MANDAN -- Members of the board of directors of the Bismarck Association of Commerce and the Mandan Chamber of Commerce were told at a joint meeting that " the two cities face a serious fuel shortage this winter. R. Fay Brown, president of the Bismarck group, said that most coal companies and transfer firms in the two cities had quit deliver- ing coal because of an SPA ceiling price of 60 cents a ton for deliver- a SENSIBLE my, to relieve IIOgTIILY inS. At the same time, the group was informed that Montana-Dakota Util- ities company, which furnished na- tural gas for both cities, had rec- ommended to industrial users that they convert to other fuel if pos- sible. The gas company said plenty of natural gas is available but that lack of "booster" equipment may re- sult in a possible shortage of gas that can be delivered to Bismarck- TEE ~ BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER LAST MEMBER OF SILO BURSTS, Bathroom Cabinet, Gay .and Useful, COMPANY BACK BURIES MAN Creates a Bright Spot m Your Home DICKINSON -- The chapter on i DEVILS LAKE -- Tollef Evenson, the Dickinson rifle company of the 22, manager of the Osborne-McMil- By Ruth Wyeth Spears 164th Infantry Regiment of the lan elevator at Ramsey, four miles ~~a-~Eo--6"-'] border designs on the pattern too North Dakota National Guard, is s~a~th of Penn, was crushed to death ~!t~/;z- .;~1-~ ~ u'~- .~ ~:- oases I o~ers, . for decorating conta~ers" of v closedwith the arrival home of early one morning recently when ~[--'~~~Jl~I ous szzes.

Prisoner Since 1943 Captain Returns Home GARRISON -- A prisoner of war in a Japanese camp since February 1943, Capt: Donald Wade Robinson of here, has now been liberated from a Tokyo prison camp and is soon to be returned here. His par- ents are Dr. and Mrs. John W. Rob- inson. Capt. Robinson was a med- ical inspector and chief of the la- boratory control service in Manila, was interned tn the Philippines in Caban Atuan prison camp after Ba- taan fell. Last November a message from Tokyo, intercepted by the War Department, stated that Capt. Rob- inson was well and in a prison camp there. This was the last word his parents heard until the recent news of his liberation. and ignited a partition in the office. A truck from the Devils Lake fire department was called to the scene, 2'} miles from here, but Big Benson, a neighbor, had extinguished the flames upon their arrival When Evenson was not found at the scene nor at his home, about a quarter mile from the elevator, a search was begun for him in the huge pile of spilled grain. A score of farmers aided four Devils Lake firemen in shoveling for his body. Evenson is married and is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hans Evenson of Bracket and had been managing the Ramsay elevator since the first of the year. Bismarck Man Now Hears From Holland BISMARCK --Frank Slag of here recently received a letter written last August 18th by his brothers in Holland, which was the first direct word he had received from his fam- ily for more than five years. He has four brothers and three sisters living there. Over eight hundred homes, including those of his bro- thers, Herman and Bernard Slag, were totally destroyed and thous- ands of people were killed when the Germans bombed the city of Enschede, Holland. Eight thousand men were taken from the streets of the city, a large textile manufac- turing center, for labor in Germany and many of them never returned. Fortunately all of Mr. Slag's rela- tives are still living in spite of the hardships endured under the Ger- man regime. E EVATOR TkNK COLLAPSES Mandan .consumer& CHILD DIES AFTER EATING POISON LINTON "-- Kenneth Arthur Lundgren, 17-month-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Lundgren, resi- dents of near Temvik, died from the effects of eating rat poison. The toddler had been left alone ip the house for only a short time "when his mother was out of doors. He: somehow got into a corner where some of the poison, which Was said to look like chocolate candy, had been left, and like most children, proceeded to put it into his mouth. When his mother discovered what had taken place the youngster~vas brought to a Linton physician who, after an examination, prescribed some pills which were to counter- act the poison. The child was taken home, apparently recovered nicely, when he suddenly became very ill and his parents started for ,town again, but the little fellow passed away before they had gone very far.

For they are farmers ~ blood brothers the world over. Today, many of the farmers of other lands aren't doing so well. Their lands have been mined, fought over, ravaged. Their stock has been butchered. Their farm buildings burned. They have no aeed to plant the soil. They desperately need your help. And you can give your help--through the dollars you give to your CommunityWar Fund. Those dollars you wring from the soil, and give to a great and worthy cause, help more than the farmers of other lands. They help farmers' sons -- and other men's sons--endure the tedium of prison camps. They help provide the blessing of entertainment to aervice people throughout the world. And theyhdp solve war problems right here in your own community. The dollars you give to your Community War Fund go farther than any dollars you're apt to put anywhere else.
