IIKL'M ANN, roi 1"""lun' I'l'tm.llJ Rocently there has appeared In the Western States n team of discharged soldiers who, after fighting in the recent war to uphold the dignity and principles of our flag and tho United States uniform, insist upon belittling and desecrating the uniform by wear ing it to arouso the sympathy of the public In general to the purchase of unofficial and fake pamphlets, mag- ft 1 D OS 6 1 C In a majority of Instances it has been found that the men wearing the uniform for peddling, hawking and panhandling on the streets and from door to door, are not bona fide soldiers but are using this method to take nefarious advantage) of pop ular sentiment. This practise is in d rect violation of the Nafioral De- feuso Act of June 3, 1916 and sub jects the offender to punishment by ' f .ne of $300 or imprisonment not to exceed Bix months, or both. The real American soldier is ab salutcly and positively opposed to the use of the uniform for commer cial purposes, because the sight of a soldier peddling, panhandling, can vassing or soliciting In uniform cre ates the falacious impression that he has been neglected and is obliged to nsort to the public through the patriotic appeal of his uniform, to Make a living. Tho War and Navy Departments are opposed to any such misuse of the uniform; the American Legion Is opposed to it; the public should not encourage it. rs .. j t A V.

The idea of the annual stock show was conceived two years ago when the Yankton grange bronght in a few head of stock and staged a judg ing contest as a part of their onter tainmont of the Pomona grange. The undertaking was so instructive it wus made a one day Bchool and an annual affair. To this end the cooperation of the Animal Husbandry Depart ment of Oregon Agricultural College was secured and with the success of last year's event the Yankton Stock Show was definitely established on the calendar of the Yankton grange.

For the Eastern and Southern parts of the Htate Bunflowers are tho better crop wherever corn will not mako a quantity of at least ten to.-.s to the acre of silage. Sunflowers may be broad casted or sown in rows the s.imo as corn, except thr.t the plants are put closer together in the rows. The rate of seeding varies from pounds to 8 pounds to the acre depending on the closeness with which they are planted. The County Agent's office would be glad to assist anyone who would like to give them a trial.
