WASHINGTON. If congress determines to continue the National Guard ns
the array of reserve of the nation, Secretary "Baker states, the Gnunl
crvlce will have to be reconstituted from the ground up. When -the men
are discharged they will return to
civilian life without any obligation
nun mo without any obligation
er to tiio federal or state govern-
its to continue In National Guard
service. Should some systrtn of uni
versal military training be worked out
tt Is probable that the National Guard
will cease to exist.
There are many Nntionul Guard
units organized since the war which
are not affected. The great mass of
the Guard, however, was merged Into
the temporary forces of the nrmy of
the United Stntes for the vjir, thereby loslug Its Identity. These regiments
must be reconstituted, recruited to necessary strength and again presented
to the federal government for recognition before they can take a place In the
federalized National Guard.
Mr. Baker said he believed that state authorities generally would not
nttempt to reconstitute any of the old regiments of National Guard until
after the divisions Into which they had been merged return from France. It
would seem desirable, he thought, that men to be discharged from those divi
sions be given a chance to re-enlist in the guard. This would enable, he said,
the reconstituted regiments to be in fact as well as in name a continuation
of the old organizations, with every right to carry the names of the historic
battles In France of Chateau Thierry, the secpnd Marne, the Ourcq, the
Vcsle, St. Mlhlel, Argonno forest, Sedan, Cote Chatlllon und other pluces tho

Permanent Christmas Trees and Memorial Planting
A CALL Is issued by the American Forestry association to every community
In the United States to take steps to make its community Christmas tree
permanent. The association hopes to see the community tree, in many places
great waste every year caused by cutting another tree. In nearly every com
munity there will bo found an Ideal spot for public gatherings. There should
be the living, growing tree that would come to be the gathering point not only
at Christmas, but at other times. Such a tree might become, In many places,
the center of a scheme for planting memorial trees in honor of our sailors
and soldiers. Let us look ahead to next year by having your committee con
sult the city or stilte forester in regard to planting n permanent community
The nation-wide movement to plant memorial trees is widening in scope.
Among the many Indorsements are these:
T. Gilbert Pearson, National Association of Audubon Societies Tho
planting of trees means more to bird life titan can be estimated. The Audu
bon societies most heartily indorse tho plan for memorial trees.
Mrs. Ida Evans Arnold, General Federation of Women's Clubs, Chiengo
In the planting of the Lincoln highway we are preserving the native flora
of our country for those to enjoy who come after us; we are assisting In tho
building of a permanent monument to those who lost their lives in the war;
we hope to establish u bird-feeding zone and sanctuary from coast to coast.
Nicknames Replace Division Numbers in A. E. F.
TI1E American is strong for nicknames. Nobody and nothing escapes him.
There are, for lnstnnco, Uncle Sam nnd "Black Jack" Pershing; doughboy
and lentherneck ; Gotham and Windy City ; tho Sucker state nnd Little Iihody.
So it Is not surprising that few of the
army divisions of the A. E. F. are
known among the lighting men by
their official numerical designation.
For example, the Thirty-seventh
division Is naturally known ns the
Buckeye, as It Is made up of National
Guardsmen from Ohio. The Eighty
fourth, composed of men from Indi
ana, Illinois and Kentucky, is the Lin
coln division. 'The Forty-first, made
up from Oregon, Washington, Mon
tana, Idnho, Wyoming and North
Dakota, is tho Sunset. The Forty-second, the famous Ilnlnbow,
named because it reflects local color
way, It is made up of portions of the National Guards of New York, Louisi
ana, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, Georgia, Alabama, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana,
Minnesota, Maryland, Soutli Carolina, Colorado, Missouri, Virginia, North
Cnrolinn, Kansas, Texas, New Jersey, Tennessee, Oklahoma, District of
Columbia, Michigan, Nebraska, California and Oregon, anil was, beyond
question, the most cosmopolitan division that left Americnn shores.
The Twenty-ninth, from New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, Delnware and
the District of Columbia, is the Blue and Gray division. Dixie is the name
of the division containing National Guardsmen from Georgia, Alabama and
Florida. Tho Ninety-first, from Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Nevada, Utah,
Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, Is the Wild West division. As most of tho
doughboys in tho Eightieth come from south of Mason and Dixon's line, they
have taken tho name of Lee division.

The exhibit was made up of several

Realizing tho Importance of good
seed corn as an essential in increasing
production, und knowing that fall-selected
seed corn is best, county agents
have directed considerable effort In
seed-corn selection und testing cam
paigns. Three hundred and fifty-four
ugents assisted OII.SIIJ farmers last
year In the 'XI Northern and Western
states in fall-selecting seed corn, and
more than a million udditionnl acres
wore planted with full-selected corn re
sulting from work of the agents dur

given to 30.KI8 farmers In tho testing
of seed corn, resulting in 040,503 addi

TREATMENT OF HOG DISEASES
Ailing Animals Should Be Immediately
Isolated in Clean Quarters
j Disinfect Pens.
I i Prepared "by tho United States Depart-
ment ot Agriculture.)
As soon us sickness appears In the
herd the unaffected hogs should at
oace be removed to clean, disinfected
quarters, preferably without much
range, for by running over pnstures
they mny come In contact with con
tagion. Their feed should be carefully
regulated and, If they have previously
been on pasture, should includo some
green feed, roots, or an abundance of
Tho quarters In which tho sickness
first appeared should be thoroughly
cleaned, all bedding and rubbish
burned, nnd loose boards and old par
titions torn out and burned. If the
pen Is old, knock It to pieces and burn
it. Disinfect pens nnd sleeping places,
using airslaked lime on the floors and
Hie cnrbolic-acid solution on tho walls
and ceilings. Whitewash everything.
If a hog dies from any cnuse 'the car
cass should never be exposed where it
may be devoured by the other hogs or
by passing birds or beasts, but should
be burned nt once or hurled deeply and
the pens thoroughly disinfected Inline
dintely. If possible, do not move tho
enrenss from the place where It falls;
but If necessary to do so the ground
over which It Is dragged should be dis
infected. It Is not known positively
hew long the virus of hog cholera may
survive In the soil, hut under fuvor
alile conditions It Is not unlikely that
it may live In the ground for several
months. Care should be taken to main
tain n strict quarantine between the
sii It and healthy hogs. Tho same at
tendant should not care for both lots
unless he disinfects himself thoroughly
after each visit to the Infected hogs,
l ogs should be confined until tho dis
e;iM is stamped out.
Tho treatment of hogs suffering from
cholera- Is not satisfactory after the
di-ease has become well established in
a herd. The prevention of an out
break by the use of antihog-cholera
viieclnntion should bo relied upon rath
er than the cure of sick animals.
