GRANGERS SHOULD STAND
SOLIDLY BEHIND GOVERNMENT
State Master Frank E. Blakeman of
Stratiord called upon every member
to use nis utmost endeavor to stand
firm for the principles of integrity and
sobriety upon which the solid founda
tions of our government are laid in
making his annual address at the
thirty-fifth annual session of -the
Connecticut state grange at Foot
Guard hall in Hartford Tuesday
In attendance at the session the
premier event in grange activity ev
ery year are nearly 300 delegates
from the ten Pomona granges and
the 146 subordinate granges. .Numer
ous visitors are expected during the
session, and one Natiorlal Master
Sherman J. Lowell of New York will
install the new officers Thursday af
ternoon. One of the features of the- session
will be the. election of officers for the
coming two years. It is probable that
the present officers, who have served
only one term, will be elected.
Moster Blakeman said on the sub
ject of prohibition "Our Connecticut
Senate voted to place the disgrace of
refusing to ratify' the prohibition
amendment on the state, although
forty-five state and Congress
and the highest courts In our
nation sustained .every measure for
its adoption of and enforcement For
tunately our delegation in congress
and those senators who refused to ac
cede to a demand for a higher and
better .civilisation are net permitted
to deprive our state of the advantages
of a saloonless nation in 1920.
Therefore it becomes tle duty of
every patron to use his utmost en
deavor to aid the federal government
in the enforcement of the law. The
rapid growth of our cities in recent
years, populated very largely by peo
ple of foreign birth and foreign ideals.
has carried the sentiment of our staite
far from its reputation of' being the
land of steady habits. Therefore it
behooves every home loving patron to
stand firm for those principles of in
tegrity and sobriety upon which the
solid foundations of our state, gov
ernment were laid.
'Master Blakeman said that earlv
this year a request was sent out from
the master's office for an extension
regarding the daylight saving law and
nearly every grange voted emphatiear
iy in favor of its repeal. This session,
he said, should take some clear ac
tion whicH will express the policy of
tne grange in a. clear and unmistakable
One of the problems which con
front the farmer, Master Blakeman
said was that of protecting his crops
from thieves. "After successfully
combatting drouth, storms, winds,
hail, blight, bugs, caterpillars and
fungus" said Mr. Blakeman, , "the
worst rodents of all are the city
thieive They d(icenf upon our
crops just before maturity and, in the
cunning of their maliciousness and
destructiveness exceed all - others.
Our experiment station, or our Agri
cultural college, has - not devised a
practical method of exterminating
them. -This is a rapidly growing evil
and while the last general assembly
provided a law with a very heavy pen
alty it does not abate the nuisance.
The farmer must be watchful of sus
picious persons and be willing to ap
pear as witnesses in court whenever
they are in possession of evidence
which might lead to conviction. It
would be well - if this session could
formulate a plan which our legislative
committee could' urge before the next
legislature as a possible remedy."
VLt. Blakeman m referring to high
way development said that there
should be further dvelopment of the
so-called feeder roads that the farmers
may be more easily in touch with the
enters of trade at all season of the
year. Many of the best farms are not
being operated at a maximum of their
producing ' capacity because of. the
condition of the highways leading to
them four months in the year. lie
urged the grangS to adopt a definite!
policy to be placed before the legisla
ture whereby state aid can be
used to improve feeder roads: This
would increase the value ' of farm
lands and so Increase the amount of
