Virginia .Whitten, Reporter Farmers cooperating with the Farm Security Administration and other farmers not able to get local credit but who need emergency grain stor- age facilities may get lbans from the FSA to provide these granaries, ac- cording to L.T. Sharp, Chairman.of the USDA War Board in Saguache County. "With current prospects in wheat producing areas of one of the larg- est yields in recent years and with terminal elevators already strained by a carry-over of about 630,000,000 bushels of old wheat, farmers must prepare now to store about 75 per- cent of their 1942 wheat on the farm or in near-by towns," said Mr. Sharp. Farmers participating under the Commodity Credit Corporation wheat loan program, the principle outlet for the crop, must provide suitable and acceptable storage in order to be eligible. Farmers unable to get adequate credit elsewhere may borrow from the Farm Security Administration in order to construct or repair the em- ergency storage facilities needed to meet these requirements, providing that the need for storage is not in excess of 3500 bushels. Where practical to do so and where the requirements for a Commodity Credit Corporation loan will permit, several farmers may pool individual loans under the Farm Security Ad- ministration for the acquisition, con- struction, or repair of a single fac- ility to meet the group's needs. Interested farmers should contact Mr. William Downing, Farm Secur- ity Administration supervisor in Monte Vista. PEOPLE WILL TALK We may get through this world, but t'will be very slow, If we listen to all that is said as we go; We'll be worried and fretted and kept in a stew; I?or meddlesome tongues must have something to do For people will talk, you know If threadbare your coat, or old fash- ioned your hat, Some one, of course, will take notice of that, And hint very strong that you can't pay your way, But don't get excited, whatever they say-- For people will talk, you know. If you dress in the fashion, don't think to escape, For they'll criticise then, in a dif- ferent shape: You're ahead of your means, or your tailor's unpaid: But mind your on business, there's naught to be said-- For people will talk, you know. The best way to do is to do as you please, For your mind, if you have one, will then be at ease: Of course you will meet with all sorts of abuse. But don't think to stop them, it is not any use--- For people will talk, you know. Drama is the golden key That opens wide the door To the land of Just-Pretend With all its treasured store. ~Halff. Hear a great artist every week. In May, Grace Moore, Charles Kullman, Lansing Hatfield, Jose !turbi. I ] eloped by the oil industry. W. S. S. Rogers, President of the Texas Company, says that the auto- mobile is so interwoven with our national economy that its necessary civilian use should and must be con- tinued. The government's current synthetic rubber plans call for the creation of a supply which will be almost entirely absorbed by mili- tary needs. Therefore, the oil ind- ustry has appointed a committee "to make recommendations for in- creasing the announced program~ so as to include some rubbe: for what we consider essential civilian use." Commenting in this, Mr. Rod. gers said, "I have a great d~al of confidence in American ingenuity, and I would no~ be surprised if we should soon find some satisteactory solution to this rather difficult prob- lem." Very great progress has been made in increasing the wearing ability of synthetic rubber for tires. Accord- ing to W. S. Farish, President of the Standard Oil Company of new Jer- sey, rubber substitutes developed as late as 1940 would deliver only 200 miles of service. New synthetic rubber may deliver 10,000 miles at speeds of not over 35 mile~ per hour. And, says Mr. Farish, a single day's output of steel would (.nable the oil industry to built all tho equipment needed to kee? the nec- essary civilian cars rolling. It will, of course, be a long time before much rubber is available for anything except vital uso. So take the best possible care of your car and its tires. And in fhe meantime. it is reassuring to know th'tt the oil industry is doing everything in its power to give thi', nation the syn- thetic rubber it so desparately needs. DRIVE TO VOID NATURALIZA- TION OF CITIZENS WHO ARE DISLOYAL A drive to void naturalization when fraudulently obtained has start- ed in New York City. Paul Huissel, a toolmaker and a native of Mann- helm, Germany, came to this country in 1927 and, in November, 1934, was given his citizenship papers. The very ne~t day he became a member of the Friends of the New Germany, which organization later changed its name to the German-American Bund. United, States Attorney Mathias- F. Correa and his assistant, George B. Schoonmaker, set forth, in their petition for voiding his citizenship on grounds of disloyalty to this country, that he refused to work in a factory producing war materials because they would be used against Germany and he recently stated that German blood is the only thing that matters and that all other people will not last. While the United States Attorney was filing this petition to void Huissel's certificate of citizenship because of the falsity of his oath of allegiance to this country prior to his naturalization, a federal grand jury returned an indictment charg- ing him with refusing to register under the requirements of the Sel- ective Service Act. If the proceeding to void his cit- izenship is upheld by the Court, Huissel can be interned as an enemy alien. If, on the other hand, he is convicted of evading the draft law, he faces a prison sentence. It is stated that this is the first move during this war to cancel the citizenship of disloyal citizens. Drivers Licenses Are Due By July 1st Some 225,000 Colorado motorists must renew their driver's license by July 1st bf this year. Check on your driver's licenses, and if they were issued prior to June 1939, they expire July 1st and must be renewed. Traffic manuel "Facts" is available to anyone wishing to study before being examined for their license. BUY DEFENSE BONDS We guarantu SAGUACHE COMMUNITY METHODIST CHURCH Robert C.

"You are richer today than you were yesterday iS you have laughed often, given something, forgiven even more, made a new fYiend, or made stepping-stones of stumbling blocks; if you have thdught more in terms of "thyself" than "myself", or if you have managed to be cheerful even if you were weary. You are richer tonight than you were this morning, if you have taken time to trace the handiwork of God in the commonplace things of life, or if you have learned to count out things tha~ really don't count, or ifi you have been a little blinder to the! faults of friends or foe. i You are richer if a little child has smiled at you, or a stray dog has i licked your hand, or if you have looked for the 6est in others and have given others the best in you.
