John Roberts Takes to Harvest Kiehls
lor Period of Annual Vacation .
John Roberts, veteran passenger
conductor on the Genesee branch of
the Northern Pacific, who has had
charge of trains in and out of Pull
man for nearly 10 years, is doing his
bit toward winning the war. Roberts
started bis annual vacation period
11mo railway duties Monday, and in
stead of taking a trip or hiking to
the hills as has been his customary
plan in the past, he forthwith hired
out to W. W. Robertson to assist the
pioneer tanner in garnering his
crops. The veteran conductor says
his threshing experience will serve
a double purpose in that it, will assist
ii saving the crop and will also prove
to his many friends that his long con
tinuous service as a trainman has not
resulted in the growth of hookworms.
Many Pullman people, more especi
ally clerks, have been spending their
vacation periods in the harvest fields.

The Rev. Leo L. Tot ten, with Mrs.
Totten and the four children, were
in Pullman Sunday and Monday on
their way back to Kalispel, .Montana,
after a 1500-mile automobile trip to
cost points. Mr. Totten was formerly
pastor of the United Presbyterian
church here, leaving about two years
ago for his new charge in the Mon
tana town. The trip consumed six
weeks, being made in leisurely
stages. Mr. Totten made practically
the same trip three years ago and
states that this year he was greatly
impressed with the vast amount of
improvement work that has taken
place in that time along the entire
route. Especially along the Colum
bia river, lie* says, vast acreages of
land have been reclaimed and put
under cultivation, now producing
crops that will help win the war.
