A THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK , JKN BE All young farmers of Bear River Valley are urged to attend the meeting at the Ag room of the high school, Wednesday, January 3, at 8 p. m. An organization will be effected and a young farmers project will be selected. AH men on farms under the age of 30 years are usged to be present n; coup- R5 and S3 which became valid Dec. 3. Red stamps T5, U5, V5, W5 and X5 become good on Sunday, Dec. 31. and B2. Look for these developments: FARMERS' CASH INCOME will approximate that of 19 11, which was $ 20 billions. Both BITUMINOUS and ANTHRACITE mining will run 5 per cent below a year ago. PETROLEUM output will be upped 5 per cent. IRON and STEEL will decline 10 per cent. A similar drop is in prospect for CHEMICAL MANUFACTURERS. LUMBER output will increase 5 per cent. The PAPER and SHOE industries will run along- on the same levels as during 1941. Industrial EMPLOYMENT will be 7 per cent less and factory PAY ROLLS will decline 10 per cent. Greatest single expansion will come in the CONSTRUCTION and BUILDING group, which will show an increase of 25 per cent from the low levels of 1944's first six months. Look for a sharp drop in RETAIL TRADE, especially in luxury items. ELECTRICAL POWER output will be reduced 5 per cent as war contracts are cut back. For basically the same reason railroad freight ton mileage will fall 15 per cent. yf"; HEART ATTACK FATAL TO - With the Fifth Army, Italy and groceries back Private John R.
