THE SUNDANCE TIMES Sundance, Wyo. May 3, 1956 i of mine, a carpenter by trade, hired a few of his carpenter friends and started a small enterprise to build ammunition crates for the Army. The Army desperately needed the crates for overseas shipment, and paid a premium price to expedite and expand pro- duction, to get thousands of people busy building crates. My friend rented an old warehouse, set up saw rigs and an assembly line, and turned out crates by the thousahds. He made a small fortune Demand Halted At the end of the war, the need for ammunition crates in huge volume abruptly stopped. My friend attempted to convert his plant to the manufacture of soft drink crates.

Is it right, is it good for America and agri- nerimenting all over again which is bad. Personaly, I think the veto will shift no Votes in the final analysis, either way. He will lose some and win some. Farm and ranch people are careful, analytical thinkers. The most of them take very little stock in political promises and when they see a statesman who does what he thinks is right, re- gardless of where the chips fall and how the votes will go, they culture and places the question of up m his plant, he finally halted ..
