"ME THINKS" SAYS SAGEBRUSH ANNIE Thundering--thundering hordes Sweep across the sands; Gathering barbaric rules Of all the pagan lands. Thunder--thundering tanks Lumbering through the day And alien life beneath them Is battered to decay. Thundering--thundering planes Blotting out the sky. To drop their deadly burdens Causing men to die. Thundering--thundering guns Spray their lethel steel Until men are rendered mute And can no longer feel. Thundering--thundering feet Tramp the earth to death; And blood and rotting flesh Polute man's breath. Thundering--thunderlng hordes Cry out the awful wrong; War's a hateful creeping thing, A monster cruel and strong. Thundering--thundering hordes Pain ridden in their fear; Hungry, hopeless, pleading-- Death hovering ever near. Thundering--thunderlng hordes-- Finland, Poland, Greece-- ,arth's multitudes are praying For wisdom, and release. , --Helen Ashley Anderson.

In Mis-! Governor Vivian went on record souri private citizens were given the right to police places where liquor is sold. EASING DISTRESS OF SMALL MERCHANTS-- Three states took action last win- ter to ease the distress of the small merchants within their borders. They were New Hampshire, Minnesota and North Carolina. In each of the states the assessors are allowed to reduce the valuation of their proper- ty in accordance with the losses they have sustained., Thus taxes are saved. North Carolina allows her assessors to value for taxation purposes as low as fi;ce percent. WHY THE MARKET DROPPED-- We noticed that the Chicago and New York markets dropped the day after Mussolini had been ousted from authority in Italy. We could not understand it, so we asked one of the best financial men in the city. He said that at the present time the country is in high gear manufactur- ing war products. That if Italy gets out of the war there will be less need for production and there will be fewer poeple working at such high salaries, with the result that there will not be as much money to spend. That wars always bring better times while they are on but generally they are followed by a depression. That the stock market is very much im- pressed with any thing that changes the flow of trade. That the fact that Italy might get out of the war and thus stop that much manufactur- mg prosperity had the effect of causing the markets to drop. If that theory is correct those two markets are liable to drop to China if the entire war were to stop over- night. RECLAMATION ASSOCIATION-- CONVENTION-- The annual convention of the Na- tional Reclamation Association will be held in Denver Oct. 27th, 28th and 29th. The board of directors will meet two days in advance of the convention Oct, 25th and 26th. The general discussion of the con- vention will be on food. It is ex- pected that the convention will go on record as favoring the immediate completion of all of the reclamation projects now under way in the west in order that more acreage may be brought under cultivation and thus help the food situation. Flood control will also be discus- sed. The association embraces all of the arid states of the west. GOOD NEWS FOR COLORADO--- In this connection it is well to note that the production board has approv- ed the priorities' for the Big Thomp- son project. Work on that enterprise is expected to start again within the next three weeks. The irrigation features of the project will be completed as fast as possible. Those in charge say that water will be flowing over the acre- age to be irrigated within the year. They say that the increased food crop that can be raised because of the completion of the project will amount to millions of dollars an- nually. ., THE TRUCKING SITUATION-- At this writing there is a dispute between the truckers and Highway Engineer Vail over charges that Vail wants to collect for over weights Recently Vail issued a circular list-I ing charges that would be made on I over loads. Some of the truckers I have refused to pay the extra charges, l Others have paid them. The great- I est complaint comes from the truck- I i ers who haul gasoline. They threat- t en to stop the movement ofthat pro-I duct altogether. Both Vail and the truckers claim the federal govern- sent is backing them. Gay. Vivian is inclined to stand back of Vail. A conference with federal govern- ment people will probably be held to settle the matter. RAISE ALL CROPS THEY CAN-- "I want every farmer in Colorado to raise all of the crops he can in 1944 and to sell them on a ligiti- mate market, whether the ederal government likes it or not. I do not war/t any farmer to allow the gov- ernment to tell him what he can raise, or how much he can raise. I want every farmer to raise what he pleases. When he gets it raised I t News items are always appreciad. I the other morning as being against price ceilings and against the control of the amount of agricultural pro- ducts any one can raise. He advises the farmers of Colorado to go ahead and raise as much as they please, of what they please and sell it for what they wish and let the federal government see what it can do about it. The governor took his position af- ter the sugar beet growers of the west had sent him copy of resolutions they'had adopted condemning the government for limiting the amount of beets they could produce this year.
