Seventy New Members Initiated at
June Meeting of Pomona -
Des Chutes Grange, located in the
territory beyond Rainier and Yelm,
now bears the distinction of being the
largest subordinate grange in Thurs
ton county, having about 150 mem
bers, 70 of whom were initiated in
the third and fourth degrees at the
June meeting of the Thurston County
Pomona at the Des Chutes hall last
Tuesday. Heretofore McLane Grange
at Mud Bay has been the largest in
the county. •
The big increase in the member
ship of the Des Chutes Grange is due
to the organization of a Grange Ware
bouse in that district, along the lines
that have led to the establishment
of such co-operative concerns under
Grange auspices in many places
throughout the state during the past
year. Final organization of the ware
house company and decision as to
whether it shall be located at Yelm
or Rainier wlil be made early next
The Pomona officers conducted the
Initiation of the 70 members during
the afternoon, and in the evening con
ferred the fifth or Pomona degree on
about 50 of them. The July Pomona
meeting will be held at South' Bay.

dered an advance July 1 to 47%
cents an hour in the minimum wage

that the going wage in most of the
camps is already the highest
figure prescribed by the directors.
Reports to the meeting showed that
34,000 men are now enrolled in the
legion, and it was stated that the
number is likely to be increased to
50,000 by September 1. Camp and
mill conditions in the territory where
in the legion operates were declared
to be the best in the world, as shown

(Special Information Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture.)
Every successful manufacturing es
tablishment has a well organized sales
department, and many farm commu
nities are organizing co-operative
marketing associations to act as their
sales departments. The farmer, like
the manufacturer, cannot afford to
give attention to production alone,
but must see that the marketing of
his products is handled to best ad
The average farmer, however, finds
It difficult to give the attention to
marketing necessary to obtain the
best results, because his time is fully
occupied with production problems.
Moreovei, the- limited production of
the average farm ordinarily prevents
the operator from obtaining the high
est efficiency in the sale of his prod
ucts. Individuals are handicapped in
securing complete market information
on account of the time and expense
involved, but a numlffcr of individ
uals can organize in a co-operative
marketing organization and market
their products successfully through
the association, say specialists of the
bureau of markets. United States de
partment of agriculture.
May Employ Manager.
A co-operative marketing associa
tion having a sufficiently large volume
of business is in a position to employ
specialized marketing ability and to
keep Informed with respect to market
conditions. The volume of business
of such an organization also makes it
possible to establish careful grading
methods and to sell the products un
der brands. Desirable outlets can
often be developed and maintained
through co-operative effort where in
dividual action is ineffective.
Factors such as these, together
with a realization that marketing
problems in a' large measure are not
merely Individual problems but are
difficulties which confront all the pro
ducers in a community,, have led to
the establishment of co-operative mar
keting associations in many localities.
There are thousands of such organi
zations successfully operating among
the farmers of the United States They
include farmers' grain elevator com
panies, co-operative creameries,
cheese factories, fruit and vegetable
marketing associations, livestock ship
ping organizations, and tobacco and
cotton associations.
Builds Iteputation for Potatoes.
An example of how co-operative as
sociations are serving as sales depart
ments for farming communities is
shown in a Western Maryland section
where conditions have been found
suitable for the production of seed
potatoes. The farmers in this section
realized from the outset that co-oper
Germany must decide by next Mon
day, June 23, whether she will sign
the peace treaty.
The reply of the allied and asso
ciated government to Germany's
counter proposals and a revised copy
of the peace treaty v.ere delivered
Monday to the head of the German
delegation, Count con Ilrockdorff-
Uantzau. who immediately went to
Weimar, there to present to the Ger
man national assembly the final word
of the victors in the war.
If Germany's reply is yes the treaty
will be immediately signed: if Ger
many declines to accede to the de
mands the armistice will be auto
matically terminated and the allied
armed forces will take whatever steps
they deem, requisite to the occasion.
The covering note of Premier Clem
enceau. president of the peace con
ference, severely castigates Germany
for protesting against the treaty on
the ground that the treaty conflicts
with the terras of the armistice. M.
Clemenceau says Germany fails to
understand the position she occupies
today in the estimation of the world
'for being responsible for a war which
was "the greatest crime against hu
manity and the freedom of the people
that any nation, calling itself civilized'
has ever consciously committed."
ative action was necessary for growers
to agree on varieties and to work to
gether on disease prevention and
eradication problems. They also real
ized that efficient sales methods are
equally as important as productive
methods, and there sdon developed In
their organization a sales department
through which their seed potatoes are
successfully marketed. Through this
association the section is building up
a reputation for good seed potatoes,
such as could not be done by growers
if they sold their seed individually.
Fruit growers in a number of the
valleys along the Pacific coast have
developed co-operative marketing as
sociations to a high degree. Grain
growers in important grain growing
sections are successfully handling
their crops in their own elevators.
Dairymen in dairy sections of Wiscon
sin and other states are adding to
their profits by organizing creameries
and cheese factories. The marketing
of early vegetables through co-oper
ation has reached high
in many southern states, and county
agents in all parts of the country are
helping farmers to combine their
shipments of livestock so that carload
lots can be sent to central markets
where higher prices can frequently be
obtained than on the local market.
Suggestions and assistance In con
nection with organization problems
may be obtained from the bureau of
markets. United States department of
agriculture, and from the various
state agricultural colleges.

Mrs. Jotin Lynch of Pleasant Glade
Hurt in Strange Accident.
Mr-* John Lynch of Pleasant
Glade was painfully injured and her
daughter badly frightened in an acci
dent in front of the postoftice Wed
nesday afternoon, when the horse she
was driving, scared by an approach
ing automobile, started to run away,
crossed the street, and the buggy was
struck by a street car.
Mrs. Lynch was taken into the
postoftice and a physician called and,
after a hasty examination, she was
removed to St. Peters' hospital for
treatment, her husband and other
daughter being notified. She is suf
fering from three broken ribs and
probabi) a punctured lung.
The first announcement of the at
tractions to be presented at the
Olympia Chautauqua July 12-19, in
dicates that reconstruction problems
are receiving primary consideration
in this forum of the people this year.
Probably never before have so many
men and women of national standing
been included on the lecture list. Af
ter-the-war issues and developments
are to be treated from all angles and
view poinjs.
Foremost'among the members of
the lecture staff stand* Ida M. Tarbell,
America's noted woman publicist;
and Edward F. Trefz, member of,the
American food missioa to Europe and
assistant to Herbert Hoover of the
food administration during the war.
Miss Tarbell comes to the Ellison-
White Chautauqua to speak on "The
United States at the Peace Confer
ence." For several months she has
been attending the conference in
Paris and she brings a first-Mhnd
story of the great which trans
pired around the peace table.
Edward F. Trefz is known throug
oiß the country not only for his war
work, but also as one of the organ
izers of the National Chhmber of
Commerce at Washington and for
years its secretary. In the past eight
years he has delivered 4891 addresses
before chambers of commerce and
national trade association meetings.
He is a business oratof and will treat
the reconstruction problems from a
business man's viewpoint.
Private Peat, unquestionably one
of the greatest lecturers, humorists
and writers the war period has pro
duced, will tell the war story of the
week. His book, "Private Peat," h)s
articles in the national magazines and
his movie films have made his name
a household word throughout the
United States-and Canada.
The music of the week is of more
than usual interest. The feature at
traction is to be Jaroslav Clmera and
his Czecho-Slovak band, a splendid
musical organization!, from that little
country of Bohemia which has been
so much in the eyes of the world of
late. In the evening Madame Helen
Cafarelli, formerly in Chicago opera,
will present a group of Bohemian
folk songs.
Another headline musical attrac
tion will be the Chautauqua tour of
Mary Adel Hays, the New York col
oratura soprano who has established
a prominent place for herself in the
world of music. She will appear on
the fourth evening, assisted by her
company of recital artists.
The Lewis Military (Jhartet, four
voices picked from forty thousand it
Camp Lewis, is probably the best
male voice ensemble that has ever
been over the Chautauqua circuit.
Each member is a concert or
opera singer, with the ability to do
splendid solo work.
Other musical companies to be pre
sented during the week are the Fillion
Concert Party, under the direction
of Ferdinand Fillion and including
Fern Goltra, formerly with the Chi
cago Grand Opera association: the
MrDonough-Eagleston company, two
musical fun makers; the Regniers. in
music and entertainment, and the
Apollo Concert company, five excep
tional musicians featuring the Apol
lcphone in their two concerts.
Edwin M. Whitney of Boston is an
other big man in the program list.

rights on this big metropolitan suc
cess and his delineation of it 3 dozen
