INDIAN VALLEY RECORD Thursday, August 22, 1940 h.- Washington, D. Co THE LINDBERGHS DISAGREE There have been two backstage developments regarding the radio broadcasts of Colonel Lindbergh. One is the fact that the men who originally encouraged him to go on the i'adio, now are backing vigorous- ly away. The other is the still un- Solved mystery of those now behind him. The two men who originally got the flying colonel on the air are Pulton Lewis, enterprising radio newscaster, and William R. Castle Jr undersecretary of state during the Hoover administration. Castle now denies emphatically that he is having anything to do with recent broadcasts, while Lewis intimates that the farther he keeps away from Lindbergh's microphone the better. The man w.ho now seems to be Close to the flying colonel is Col. Robert McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune, who is violently anti-British and pro-appeasement. Whether or not McCormick inspired Lindbergh's latest speech is not known, but Lindbergh was McCor- mick's house guest while in Chi- Cago, and also it is interesting to ~ote that the broadcast originated Over WGN, which is McCormick's radio station. Mysterious Colonel Smith. Another man who has been close to Lindbergh is Col. Truman Smith, of U. S. army intelligence, and the arrny's chief specialist on Germany. Colonel Smith was stationed at Fort Bennlng before the advent of ~titler, when some German officers Came there for training. He became a great friend of the officers, and as military attache in Berlin sevelal Years later renewed that friendship. I~ fact he was giving amazingly ac- CUrate information regarding the 0erman army. For instance, when Germany mOVed into Poland last year, Colonel Smith was able to tell the war de- Partment the points which the Ger- man army would take, and almost the exact-hour it would take them. .At first the war department would trot believe his information, eventu- ally had to admit its sounc~ness, Colonel Smith got to know Lind- bergh in 1938 when the latter spent much of his time in Berlin, so when Lindbergh now comes to Washing- ~n, sometimes for broadcasting, he ~ equently stays at Smith's house. tae colonel was reported to have ~Uad a hand in writing some of the broadcasts This he later denied. Opinion in the war department is ttnanimous that Colonel Smith is an extremely able officer, but it is mixed as to whether his admiration of Germany is purely from the military viewpoint or also includes a Political viewpoint. Opposite Lindberghs. Mrs. Dwight Morrow, widowed of Colonel Lindbergh, isn't the only member of his family Who disagrees with him on his anti- 13rltish pro-appeasement views.

In the last few years any number of batters have had a harder time in the wake of his fast ball, curve and control. Paul Derringer has played a lead- ing role in the Red drive for the last two years, despite the fact that sev- en years ago he was rated all through and on his way over the hill. That was the year that pitch- ing for both Cardinals and Reds he won 7 games and lost 27, for the meager average of 206, far below taft-end form. Six years after this dashing deba- ele Paul won 25 and lost 7, one of the most startling reversals I know in all sport.

Six years after he turned in his .206 average with the Reds he gave the'same city a winning average of .781. This upward leap of 575 points is close to the high-jump rec- ord of all time. But it still belongs to Paul Derringer. By L. M. WINTERS (Professor ot Animal Husbandry. Univer- slty Farm. St. Paul.) Most of our older ideas on animal breeding and improvement are due for considerable revision in the light of fundamental present-day knowl- edge. The "purebred philosophy" which reached its peak about 1920 must now give way to new and more scientifically accurate methods of making live stock more efficient and profitable. The old idea that a pure- bred animal is better because it is purebred will not stand the acid test ble.

Equal- are that they'll use modern Ameri- ] ly incorrect is the belief that our present breeds of farm animals possess all of the good characters they need or that it is possible to give them. In the past years we have relied on type and body conformation ~as measuring sticks for profitable farm animals. We know now that speed and" thrift of gains, size of litters, pounds of wool and lamb per ewe as well as pounds of butterfat pro- duced are far more accurate tests of real efficiency The excellent progress made so far in the improvemeet of live stock with purebred sires should by no means be ridiculed. However, this is only one step in the improvement process. The old ideas that pure- bred animals are always best and that appearance is a good indicator of performance must now yield to such developments as crossbred was engaged for chorus work in the Astalre-Rogers musicals, and her gift for comedy got her the role of the maid In "Stage Door."

He is one of the main credits to the game, that has car- ried him along into middle age-- middle age as far aa active competi- tion is qoncerned. And with 10 out of 11 for 1940 he is now headed for his greatest year. Those Who Come Back The most somber line ever writ- ten in sport was this: "They don't come back." Nothing was ever farther from tim truth. No other line has ever had a more depressing effect on some stars, The true fact is they keep on com- ing back. We have Just related the two cases of Derringer and Fitz. simmons. Then there is Schoolboy Rowe. swine and completely new breeds developed from crosses of present breeds. Experiments at Minnesota clearly show that crossbred hogs are more efficient producers of pork tnan purebreds. Likewise the 'Maine Experiment station has proved that there is very little rela- tion between the so-called type standards and production of dairy cattle. Beef cattle similar in type often differ greatly in their ability to make efficient gains. Future live stock breeding work will be directed at increasing ef- ficiency rather than improving ap- pearance of farm animals. Proved sires, cow and sow testing, inbreed- ing, crossbreeding and artificial in- semination are valuable tools that will be used widely in the future to develop more profitable live stock. Fly-Trap for Live Stock Aids Pestered Animals Farm animals soon learn to make frequent use of a device for brush- ing off and trapping horn flies that are such a pest to live stock in summer. It is a cagelike structure that fly-pestered animals pass through, leaving their tormentors behind in traps to be destroyed. The framework of the cage is a structure 7 feet wide, 6 feet high, and 10 feet long with a fly-tight roof. Canvas flaps hang from the ceiling and brush off flies on the backs and sides of animals walking through. Other canvas flaps on frames attached to the floor brush the legs and bellies. Simple wire fly traps are arranged at the sides of the passage to catch the flies brushed off by the canvas flaps. The device is usually set up at some strategic spot through which the animals must pass several times a day--in a lane to the pas- ture, in the entry to a dairy barn, or on the way to the water tank or pond. Live stock soon learn to make for the "brusher-offer" when flies torment them. Roughage Fed Cow Affects Milk Color Recent studies have shown that the type of roughage fed to dairy cows greatly affects the amount of yellow color in milk. Green pasture grasses and leg- umes head the list of feeds which produce high color. Closely fol- lowing pasture on the list is grass and legume silage of good qual- ity. Good field cured hay, when new, and corn silage are only fair, while hay of poor quality and beet pulp produce milk which ts very low in color. The yellow color of milk is due to a pigment called carotene. When carotene is taken into the body, it is converted into vitamin A. An increase in the yellow color of the milk of a cow means, therefore, an increase in vitamin A potency. Hoe and Honk Geese are saving a lot of Arkansas cotton from 'ruin by gobbling :weeds 16 hours a day. Farmers in a ~est- era Mississippi county today keep flocks of from 75 to 100 geese busy in cotton patches from sunup to sunset. Pestiferous Johnson grass is especially relished by these birds, which eat steadily up and down the rows in both wet and dry weather. Some of the farmers sell their geese after the cotton sesson, while others keep them tbe year round. :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: [Design No. 8738 has very soft and feminine lil)es, however sailorfied its spirit, because the skirt has smart unpressed front fulness and the blouse is gathered to round out your bustline.
