LET THEM LIE
Legislation is presently pending in
Washington to have the remains of
all American soldiers who died a
broad moved to th.s country and re
buried. As it stands at present the
bill would authorize the moving of
any soldier's body when his next of
kin so desired. The war department
contemplates moving all from any
cemetery when it is sixty percent va
cated. There is some controversy about
the disposition of the remains after
they are brought to the United
States. The first expressed intention
of the War Department was to estab
lish national cemeteries for the war
dead. This intention is viewed un
favorably by cemetery operators in
the country who are arguing that the
Government should grant a set a
mount of money for reburial to the
family of each soldier and leave the
matter there. The motive behind this
argu r.ent is not abstruse, and we
wonder who started the whole move
ment anyway, and whether the mo
tives were strictly sentimental.
This action, if carried out, will cost
the United States many, many mil
lions of dollars. It will cause to be
reborn and will add immeasurably to
the grief already suffered by the
families of these men who died over
seas. It will move the-soldiers from the
places where most of them wanted
to rest if they were battle casualties.
This was proved by art opinion poll
taken of combat soldiers during the
war, in which the preponderant ma
jority wanted to be bujied near the
scene of their last great battle. Gen
eral George S. Patton. Jr., the war's
outstanding combat leader, wanted
to rest there forever. It's what the
rest of them wanted, too. Let's let

In most American homes there was
happiness this Christmas, and plenty.
In most European homes there was
cold this Christmas, and hunger.
In these American homes there
was the Christmas spirit of giving,
giving to our friend and those we
love, and giving to the needy among
us, who are mighty few.
The United Nations Relief and Re
habilitation Association (UNRRA)
is doing its best to help these people
in Europe not just because it is
Christmas, but to keep them from
freezing or starving to death, or both.
The UNRRA is doing well with what
it has but it has not the food nor
the money to even keep all these
people from starving or freezing.
They need more.
To bring a Christmas spirit that
seems more real than the exchange of
gifts between our warm and well
fed selves into our homes right now
we can help the UNRRA in its Her
culean task by getting together a
little non-perishable food, some can
ned goods, clothing, or a cash dona
tion and giving it for relief use. Non
perishable food and donations may

QUESTION: When does a sweet
potato become a yam?
ANSWER: Hazel Meacham in
charge of Extension Marketing at
State College, has Just returned from
a trip to Eastern produce markets
and a study of conditions there, and
he says that after a sweet potato
crosses the Mason and Dixon Line,
it becomes a yam. "Consumers in
the East and Northern markets have
an idea that the yam is an improved
sweet potato and make their pur
chases accordingly," Meacham ex
plains. "Tests have been made with
the following sign 'Sweet Potatoes, 3
pounds for 28 cents,' and the sweet
potatoes sold very slowly. When the
sign was changed to read, 'Yams, 3
pounds for 28 cents' on the same bin,
the sweet potatoes were sold much
QUESTION: How can I keep my
chickens from getting colds?
ANSWER: Here's where an ounce
of prevention is worth more than a
pound of cure. Cold, damp days are
ideal for chickens to contract colds,
roup, and bronchitis. Prof. Roy
Dears tyne suggests that you take
definite precautions to prevent such
infections by providing dry floors.
ventilation without direct drafts, and
plenty of floor space per bird. Once
established in a flock, such Infections
are extremely hard to control and
usually are quite costly in reduced
production and high mortality.
Shortages of soap and other es
sential household articles which de
pend on industrial fats and oils point
to fat salvage as a number one duty
of all housewives.
