nation as to where the state stands in
the matter of swine. According to
the 1920 census we have less than one

seventy-hundredths; Lewis ami Ska

while Whitman has I.:: I brood suns.
Were the farmers to carry one
brood sow for each of the farms in
the state and should they save five

ORCHARD COVER CROPS
EFFECT ON FRUIT COLOR.
Clean cultivation or orchards, and
covet 1 crops, with their effect on fruit
color and the general health of the
trees, wore discussed at the recent
meeting of the State Horticultural
Society of Washington by Professor
O. M. Morris, head of the horticulture
department of the State College of
First he told how orchardists in the
irrigation regions had boon devoted
to clean cultivation, and secured
j splendid growth, rapid development
I and early fruit production by this
means. The soil is, however, ex
tremely low in humus, inclined to al
kalinity, and rapidly depleted of its
fertility under his clean cultivation.
The extremely high coloring of the
fruit should have been taken as a
warning, he said. Shortly after the
trees gave evidence of slowing up of
growth abruptly, unsatisfactory coloi

Orchardists, noticing these siinis.

started cover crops. In run-down

I twecn the trees and the cover crops
i for water and plant food from the

trees. Others were fortunate enough

finish. After the crop had time to

gradually came hack to more normal

PREDICTS HIGHER PRICES
All (foods composed of cotton and
wool will be higher this coming
Bpring for the following reasons:
Cotton is forty per cent highei
than a year ago at this date: cotton
yarns are twenty-six per cent hitfhei
than last December; worsted! yarns
are fifty-three per cent higher than
B year ago.
Ii is computed that the farmers
will >>:et for this year's crop f1.50 foi
every $1.00 they received for last
The new tariff i.< responsible foi
the advance in wool and the advanci
in cotton is due to the ravages of the
boll weevil, which has destroyed fifty
per cent of the crop.
The advance in the price of wheat
is justifiable as the farmer has not
been getting enough compensation
for bis product compared with the
prices of other commodities.
NEAR BAST PROBLEMS:
What is tho foreign policy of Bol
