the facts which may be procured from

draft boards, but every community as
sociation that can render help will be
appealed to so that the canvass may
be thorough and the results exhaustive
and comprehensive. It is the feeling
of the council that the service ren
dered by Utah's people during the war
is so magnificent that nothing less
than a detailed and correct record of

the people of Utah will respond at once

be no omissions when the record is

applause, declared that in Europe the

After referring to the declaration
adopted by American labor at Wash

to tho government, Mr. Gompers said:
"I merely wish to call your atten

labor intor-allled labor conference of
September, the American mission pro
posed and the conference adopted the
declaration, not in tho same words but
in the same sense as adopted by
American labor more than a year and
a half ago."

he characterized as the pro-German

of the mission was the target of those

SPECIAL CLASSES AT
A. C. FOR STUDY OF
Important irrigation problems and
their attempted solutions will be the
subject for a course of special classes
at the Utah Agricultural College, Lo
gan, immediately following the farm
ers round up. February 3 to 8, and will
occupy two weeks.
A special course for watermasters
is to be given by the department of
irrigation and drainage of the Utah
Agricultural college during the com
ing winter, according to Professor. O.
W. Israclson. This course will be
given just following the big farmers'
roundup which will be held at
Logan.. It will run for 4wo
weeks and aim. In that time, to
give a fundamental knowledge of cor
rect irrigation practice and to ac
quaint those taking advantage "of the
course with the important irrigation
problems, of the west.
Professor Jsraelson declares that a
most urgent need for such a course j
exists1 in this state. "Every Irrigation
company in Utah should make it pos
I sible for its waterniaster to attend
i this special course in irrigation," says
Professor Israclson. "It would no
doubt be well for every irrigation
j company, purely as a war measure, to
depart from its established practice
of choosing a watermaster during

to look for the best available talen-.

as to need no comment.
"Utah was probably one of the first
slates to gjve special attention to the
conservation of its irrigation waters
as a means of increasing food produc
tion, and the Agricultural college has
been called upon to assist in urging
the need for unusual economy in the
use of water. It has been asked to
assist in some readjustments of water
distribution, in order to save crops
which were threatened with destruc
