Upon in- vestigating he discovered two of his Cows in the well and he called upon a ranch hand with s tractor to help get the cows out. In backing up to the well the tractor fell fn and as it dropped down it boosted one of the cows out and the other was res- Cued with a team of horses. The Gross Garage wrecker was used to get the tractor out which was sub- Vaerged in 18 feet of water. The only damage to the tractor was a . bent Steering gear. We wonder how ~aany co~#s etc. have perished in this old well and can only guess why SU'eh~ a dea~ly cow-trap is left un- gnarled by fence or cover. Harvey-- Syan Of Sheppard Field, ~exas called : his mother. Sunday her on Mother's Day. He and likes his work. the Navy is the highly important job of each Naval Training Station's Selection Division. The Selection officer determnies by tests, examinations and interviews the particular field of activity of the Navy each recruit is best fitted to fill and if possible place him in that field. Each recruit takes a series of com- petitive written examinations or gen- eral classification tests which in- clude English, spelling, arithmetic, mechanical and radio aptitude. These tests are designed to meet the level of grammar school graduates and are used to indicate the recruit's area of general information. Each recruit also fills out an individual card indicating his occupational, vo- cational and academic experiences. He also states the rating he hopes to attain and his choice of'Class "A" schools. Recruits then attend a special lec- ture during which they learn of the various opportunities availible to them in the Navy, when information is given regarding methods, of:selec- tion, special tests, special details, requirements for the service acad- emies, Aviation Cadet (V-5') and Reserve Midshipmen (V-7) classifiCa- tions, and Reserve Commissions. On the basis of his test scores in the competitive examinations, pre- vious vocational or. occupational ex- perience, schooling and desires, and his company commander's= mark in- dicating h/~ p0t~i~/al ability as a petty offi~ each Navy newcomer i.s then assigned either to a school or sea, or is given a special occupa- tional test for a petty officer's rating. Filling Class "A" school quotas .and special details as established by tlae Bureau of Navigation is only one of the many functions of the Selec- tion Office. Men are interviewed by a corps Of experienced occupa- tional analysts, and candidates for service academies, aviation cadet training and 'reserve midshipmen openings are given advice and in- structions. The use of automatic scoring and tabulating machines enable the de- partment to ,expediate the handling of the many thousands of records and details and aids the Selection Office in ably placing enlisted men where they can be of most service to their country. Dr. Reginald B. Weiler, Del Norte physician, delivered a profound and thought provoking address on the present world revolution to the Tuesday evening Club meeting. The address was followed by roundtable discussion. Viol|n selections were played by Melvin. Coleman, Jean Ainsworth and Virginia Whitten and Gordon Solo- mon gave a cornet selection. Miss Harmon, instructor of these talented high school musicians, was at the piano. Visitors were Kenneth McDermith, District Lieutenant Governor Kiwanis International, Alamosa ,Harry Wells, Del Norte, and C. H. Kelleher, Salida.

TODAYI BOY SCOUT NEWS A regular meeting was held at the High School, May 11, with only four members present. There was an ex- tended discussion on the topic of paying dues and renewing the char- ter for the coming year. It is now three weeks past time for renewal of the charter, but because of the failure of the members to pay their dues it is doubtful if a new charter can be secured. If any of you are interested !n qkeeping up your mem- bership it is now three weeks past the time for paying those dues. And this DOES mean you! After some discussion on the sub- ject,, it was decided to disband foz the summer, with meetings to be re- sumed next fall, if there are enough members with .dues paid to enable us to prcoure a troop charter. This means that there will be no more regular meetings fintil some time next fall. We hope that all of you have a pleasant summer and that you are able to do a bit of Scout work during the season. Willis Bennett, S. M. Carl Jones with the Naval Re- serves stationed at Honolulu, Hawaii called at the Dick Kenny home and no doubt enjoyed a very pleasant visit.

"ME THINKS" SAYS I SAGEBRUSH ANNIE The deserDtE:EshRe:t:TORnMand blow- ing high Above the salt flats, and the road bed, And trails are covered with brown fog As clouds of dust upon the hilltops spread And fall to earth, and rise again; A hundred voices--eerie notes from on high, Float down the air in doleful sigh For lost souls from ages long gone by. And as night comes rosy lights shine through The thickened air; and on the hills Purple shadows mingle with the dust Floating to earth as the wind's wrath stills. ---Helen Ashley Anderson. "Mail From Home" Needed In Soldier Morale Here-Abroad Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. well known screen star, who is with the U. S. Navy, writes feelingly about the 'good effects of letters and papers from home to the men in service He says in part: "The mail problem is a real and serious one. The boys serving in these bleak and desolate outposts re. ceive every attention and considera- tion which a nation at war can give them. Their health and welfare is supervised by experts and their train- ing the best available. But too often the strictly personal and intimate stimulant is missing~and this can only come from "the folks back home." In this war, great units in the front line and at monotonous training in camps, spend long periods of inactivity, and action is intermit- tent--violent and complete when it comes. The issues at stake this time are greater than at'any other period in the world's history, and the war takes on a sor~ of "Holy Crusade" appearance. Consequently, the men nee dat all times to feel that the home front is carry on. Over and above this they want homely con- tacts---they feel so far away--so iso- lated~they starve for details of every bit of home news. "One young lad I know was with- out mail for several weeks. Finally he received news that he was the father of a baby girl. This man had an added incentive for doing his job. Others get news of much less im- portance but it means almost as much to them. None of the services are "professional" in the old military sense---despite the fact that many are Regulars. They are all citizens-- they are all very home-inded. When a mail ship comes in to a post away from home the .first question which the signal lights blink out to the newcomer is Shave you any mail for us?" If there is, the ship's work is done with added vigor, and spirits soar. "'These men are doing a job of work~that it is in their line of duty and must be done goes without say- ing. We take it for ganted that they should make sacrifices---which is as it should be---but we can help them to do their job by letting them know we are thinking of them and 'keeping the home fires burning' ". As ever, DOUG. NEW ARRIVAL Mr. and Mrs. Gene Davis of Monte Vista are rejoicing over a boy which was born to them at the Monte Vista hospital Saturday night, May 9th. The little fellow has been named Kenneth Eugene and tipped the scales at 7% lbs. Gene Davis is the father of Charlie and Tom Davis of Saguache and John and Glen Davis of Center. WORKERS MAKE GARMENTS Mrs. Will Hutchinson and Mrs. Margaret Robb of Crestone cut and made twelve children's convalescent robes and one sample garment for the Red Cross War Relief. The garments were well made. ~o-- Mrs, Edward Schneider and Mrs. Geraldine Papuette of Villa Grove, have completed eighVwomen's gowns which were stitched very nicely. ~ MAKE EVERY PAY DAY WAR BOND DAY STOP SPI:.HDING-- SAVE DOLLARS THE U.

TELLER AMMONS OFF TO WAR Former Governor Teller Ammons is off to war; so writes Alva Swain, who continues: "He leaves the last of this week for one of the military camps in Utah, where he will be sta- tioned until transferred to some other zone. The former governor who saw services across the seas thruout the first World War, goes as a captain in an infantry ~vision. He expects to .see plenty of combat ex- perience. He had an opportunity for a desk job that would have been in this state, but he declined it with the tl~ot, if he is in the war at all, he wants to take chances with the boys from the state who are also on the firing line."
