MINNESOTA STATE FAIR
To Be Held From September 3 to Sep
tember 8 Bigger and Better
With the possible exception of the
entertainment features, which have
not yet been completely arranged for,
every ^department of the Minnesota
State Fair, to be held September 3
to 8, has reported an.increased de
mand for space and, with the govern
ment placing exhibits for the first
time, there is every reason to be
lieve that the fair will be the biggest
ever held in the country.
"All that we are worrying about
this year," stated Thomas H. Can
field, Secretary-General Manager, re
cently, "is the weather. Give us good
weather from now until the fair, and
especially during the week of the fair,
and we will break all records."
One of the departments that will
far surpass its work of previous years
is the School Exhibits Department, of
which George F. Howard is superin
tendent. Recently Mr. Howard issued
an appeal for more space, stating that
the exhibits already accounted for
would more than fill the space allotted
to the department.
Similar conditions seem to prevail
in many of the other departments and
the fair managers are very optimis
Mr. Ray P. Speer, Publicity Man
ager of the Minnesota State Fair, to
be held this year September 3 to 8,
is authprity for the statement that
the government food exhibits and
demonstrations will materially add to
the attractiveness of the annual fair.
"This food conservation movement,
which will be made the chief feature
of the State Fair," said Mr. Speer, who
is a member of Food Administrator
Hoover's advisory board, "is bigger
people of the Northwest realize.
It is, in fact, the biggest problem the
government has ever had to solve and
when one realizes that it covers such
a broad field and takes in everything
we eat and things we wear it is not
difficult to see that it is an important
Practical demonstrations in food
conservation will be held daily at the
State Fair. These will be under the
direction of government experts.

WAR SERVICE FOR CHILDREN.
The children as well as the grown-ups must do their bit for
their country. The Minnesota State Fair Food Training
Camp, Sept. 3 to 8, will devote an entire department to stimu-
lating interest in children's work and to pointing out ways in
which the children may best serve their country.
One of the most important features
of the Minnesota State Fair, which
this year is to be held September 3
to 8, and which is to be conducted as
a government "Food Training Camp,"
will be the livestock exhibits.
These exhibits have always been an
important part of the State Fair, but
they are made doubly important this
year because of the fact that the
great world war has for several years
been draining the supply, especially
in* America, which has been obliged
to feed the world almost from the
very start of the struggle for human
Realizing the great necessity of pro
ducing and conserving food, the gov
ernment officials at Washington have
joined the movement recently start
ed to make the fairs and expositiols
throughout the country centers where
the people can be taught these things.
Especially are the government offi
cials eager to stimulate the raising of
Bheep, swine, horses, cattle and poul
try and they will leave no stone un
turned in the effort to produce great
To this end the State Fair manage
ment has offered inducements in the
way of attractive premiums for
best in the various branches in the
Among the various features which
will interest those who are interest
ed in the raising of stock and also
those who attend the wonderful shows
held each year at the fair, will be the
cattle exchange, which is to be locat
ed near the livestock pavilion. This
exchange will serve a double purpose
it will bring together men who have
high grade cattle to sell and men who
with to buy such cattle.
The idea of instituting a cattle ex
change was originated by Prof. H. H.
Kildes, head of the dairy husbandry
department of the Minnesota College
of Agriculture, who is recognized as
one of the best authorities in the coun
try on the dairy industry, and
has long realized that stringent mea
sures must be adopted if the produc
ing herds of the country are to
saved. He is authority for the state
ment that the dairying industry of
the United States is being seriously
threatened by the rapidity with which
the herds are being killed off and that

First Training Camp.
At the Minnesota State Fair, which
is to be the model "Food Training
Camp" for the country and which
will be copied by the other big fairs
and expositions, thousands of people
from all sections of the Northwest will
gather and to these persons will be
given the urgent message of Presi
dent Woodrow Wilsonthat each and
every individual in the country must
realize the importance of and must
do his share in producing and con
serving food if America and her al
lies are to win the titanic struggle
for democracy and humanity.
Farmers and stock growers all over
the West will doubtless take advant
of the opportunity to show their
stock this season. The State Fair of
ficials are of the opinion that the live
stock show this year will far surpass
any yet held, despite the war condi
tions, and that the campaign already
started by the government to encour
age production and conservation will
have its effect.
Secretary Thomas Canfleld of theR.
Minnesota State Fair is optimistic over
the prospects of the big annual show
and believes that, with the government
behind it to the extent of sending sev
eral exhibits and also speakers the
1917 State Fair will be the best ever.
"We are doing everything in our
power," said Mr. Canfleld, "to encour
age the raising and showing of live
stock of all kinds. We want to co
operate with the government so as to
stimulate activity, especially in the
of stock. No efforts will be
spared this year to make the displays
in the different departments of the
section the best we have ever
had. We have experts who this year
will giro their co-operation in every
possible way and, I believe, the re*
suits of the fair will be evident hi
the next two or three yeara."
