recommendations of President Waters
tn his Inaugural address a few weeks

a lifetime In the study of wheat for
"Millions of daliars are lost," Presi

of Kansas have not the facilities for
getting the most out of the wheat.
They can't test It before they mill It
for Its milling qualities and Its bak

for them. Kansas Is tho greatest
winter wheat state, and we Intend to
make It the greatest flour state. Every
grain ougut to be milled in the state."

What sad memories linger around
the old vacant chair. Sitting In the
middle of the floor, with a plaintive
look about its frayed and seemingly
weary back, it brings back a tumultu

anguish come to me when I arrive

swiping the loose furniture around the

publicity, and strike my best toe
against the rocker of the old vacant
chair. Then, forgetting for the mo
