Protective Tariff
Would Revive the
Potash Industry
Governor McKelvie's endorsement
of a protective tariff on potash as p.

rise and fall of an industry that in the
war period loomed

Whether a tariff on foreign notash
would serve as an incentive to rpviv
this Industry is a matter of specula
tion among investors and the soil sur

The proposed tariff of two and a
half cents per pound on foreign potash
would, in the opinion of the majority,
af the once prosperous mine owners
here, have put little effect toward re
gin of difference per ton between
prices and product'on and sale would
be so slight it would not tend to en
courag investors to again stimulate
the industry.
The potash boom came as a natural
one to Nebraska. With its 200 or more
lakes which conservation officials
state contain potash, in larsre iuan-
tities and the comparatively easy pro
cess of product'on the cessation of
imports from the cheaper sources in
Eurrpe during the war put the in
dustry from infancy to one of the
state's most fascinating futures. In
the more centralized potash areas,
towns grew over night, similar to
those that follow in the wake of a new
oil field. Money was plentiful, inves
tors sunk heavily and in, but a short
time Nebraska's output was estimated
at approximately 1,500 tons daily.
During these dnys the product sold
at $125 a ton. With the termination

mines have deteriorated to ?uch an
extent that large sums would be neces

the proposed tariff is passed, the mar-

You Need a "Reed"
Why continue to use open pans and old style roast
ers which waste a large part of your roast? The meat is
sometimes raw at the bottom and scorched at the top;
sometimes dried up. At best there is a big loss in nutri-..
tion through'evaporation.
The reed roaster pays for itself
in a few months. The self basting feature does away with eternal
vigilance, it's a perfect sterilizer for canning and its easy to clean.
