City Shoplifters Active Saturday Evening Shoplifters were active in Ka- lona last Saturday and two young women were questioned in Hes- selschwerdt's store as to the con- tents of their shopping bags af- ter clerks become suspicious of their actions. When approached by E. J. they became indignant and left. However Monday morn- ing six sweaters which were found in an alley near the business dis- trict were returned to Hessei- schwerdt store and it is asm~med that the guilty parties disposed of the goods before they left town. This is not the first of such acts which have caused the clerks to keep a watchful eye on certain so called customers who carry the handy shopping bag with them. o.

Hunters Are Urged To Turn In Shotgun Shell Cases Hunters are urged by the State Covservation Commission Com- mission to turn all used brass shell cases back in to salvage organi- zations. In most communities hardware and sporting goods stoves have placed containers with proper signs for empty cases. Gun clubs and many sportsmen's or- ganizations have been salvaging the brass bases for quite some time. Hunters are requested to tear the paper from the shell and save only the brass. In many areas hunters w~ll find shells of past seasons and it is suggested that these also be picked up and turn- ed in. The amount of brass that can be reclaimed if lmnters stay on their toes while in the field can be estimated by eonxparing with estimates made in Minnesota. A' survey made in that state shows 400,00 pounds of brass left in the fields last year when hunters threw away their ejected shotgun shel?s. first one finished in the organiza- tion. Woolen clothing or blankets are needed by the organization to be used in making these quilts and the committee reports that no re- sponse has been made to an earli- er call for these materials. Almost every hou~sehold has old woolen clothing or blankets for which they have no use and it could be used to a good advantage in mak- ing quilts tot the soldiers. Any- one wishing to donate old clothing or blankets may leave them with, Mrs. O. R. Shehnan m" Mrs. Geo.I Fry. The service ladies and a~yoneI else who wishes to help are go-I ing to tie quilts Thursday after-I noon, November 5, at the skat~z~g rink. ] It was also w, ted at this meet-! ing to present: a gift to each |n-i ductee as they leave this commun-! ity. ! Birthday ca~'ds are being sent to local men in the s~rvice, and each family may give the date of their son, brother or husband's birthday to Ruth Thatcher as soon as possible in order that an ac- curate record may be kept in the organization O FURS FOR SERVICE MEN "It's the cold that makes them shiver, not the bullets", said I. Rethchild, county chairman of the "Fur for Service ~Men". To the good folks of the Kalona neighborhood who contributed fur for the sailor ,beys. "I think you did a swell job and am sure the furs sent in will keep the boys warm, and who knows he may be yours. Thanks to Mrs. O'Lough- lin for her work and Jim for bringing them over. write one that is more or less a censor's dream.--I hope . . . After leaving where we were, we left for here and not knowing we were coming ft, om there to here, we couldn't tell whether we'd arrive here or not but here we are and not there. The weather here is just as it is at this season, b~t of course, quite unlike the weather where we were before we came here. After leaving by what we left by, we had a good trip. The land, water and air are just like they would be here and not anything like they are where we were before we came here. From there to here is just as far as it is from here to there. I feel just as I should for this kind of weather here but of course I felt alright there for the kind of weather there, so there is nothing to be alarmed about. The way we came here is just the way everyone comes from there to here. Of course we had to bring along everything we have with us for here we wear what we should wear here. The whole thing is quite a new experience here because it's not like what it's like where we were before we left for here. Even though all the ground and houses here are like all the ones they would have here, they are not like the houses where they were before we came here. I guess it's about time to stop this too newsy letter before I give away too much valuable i~=forma- tion, as the censor here is liable to be a spy as they have there only not quite. Take ~t easy down there so we won't worry here or there too. Maynard Cooking" with honey is nothing sew for Mrs. L. E. Gingerieh who has ~een using the product of the bees as a m~bstitute for sugar for 19 years. The family even uses honey on the breakfast cereal. The honey crop has been good this year and a good fall crop is expected due to the number of flowers and favorable weather con- ditions. About 150 pounds was secured from each colony of bees owned by the Gingerich family this spring. The price of honey has nearly doubled over last year's crop, due to the sugar shorts,. Mrs. Gingerieh is pic~mred above showing her daughter-in-law, M~. Roman Gingerich, a few of the tricks in using honey in place of sugar for baking cookies. "I use about a gal- lon of honey every week for baking, mixing chocolate milk for the children, break2~t cereal, and other sugar ~eeda. of Davenport Demmn~t
