WASHINGTON STATE COLLEGE, Pullman, Nov. 29.—1n the last 1') years the number of farms in eigh teen states has become smaller, an-1, generally, there Is a tendency of coun try people to move to town; but wo need not be too seriously alarmed about this, says Dean Edw. C. John son, of the College of Agriculture at the State College. First of all, he points out that in Washington the last ten years has witnessed an increase of 18 percent in the number of farms. He says also, in part: "That yields thus far have not suf fered is illustrated by the fact that fo r the last 25 years there has been a steady increase in the yield of all crops per acre. Acording to the 1919 report of the Secretary of Agriculture, the increase for the ten year period ending in 1918 was 25 per cent for wheat, 10 percent for corn, 24 per cent for oats, over 30 percent for hay; ELEVEN—Standard while the average increase for the major field crops of the entire United States for this period as compared with the ten year period ending in 1890, was 16 per cent. "The increase in the number of horses in a working team, the use of the tractor and the greater power gen erally, demand an Increased ability and intelligence on the part of those who farm. Also, the returns from intelligent farming must be such as to b$ An Incentive to young men and women of ability and ambition, to take up this great calling. "As long as there are new regionn to be reclaimed, as long as the number of acres under cultivation increases, and as long as the yield per acre and the output per man are increasing, let us not decry too much the de creasing number of farms in some of the older states. Let us. rather, help to shape things so that the people on the farm may have the same opportun ity for an education that is enjoyed by those living In town." STATE COLLEGE PLANS REVISION OF PROGRAM President Holland Summons Agricul tural Conference for Decem ber 1, 2, and 3. For the purpose of revising the agricultural program at Washington State College so that the college "can better serve those engaged In all branches of agriculture in this state" a meeting has been called at the col leg by President E. O. Holland for next December 1, 2 and 3. "We expect to have in attendance from 75 to 250 persons representing every state-wide agricultural organi zation, who will be asked to present the problems peculiar to their indi vidual lines of endeavor," stated Dr. Holland, who is visiting in Spokane today. "With the developments at this meeting as a basis a meeting con sisting of myself and the agricultural experts at the college will be held and a new agricultural program out lined to be presented to the college board of regents for their considera tion and adoption." Invitations have been mailed to the president of the Washington wheat growers, the millers and ship pers, state horticultural association, the state berry growers' association, the state grange and the farmers' un'on. and all other state-wide organ izations representing the dairy, live stock and poultry business. Dr. Hol land states. The president of each of these will be asked to select four aides and attend the meeting at Pullman. "The principal question to be settled will be "How can the State College, through its Agricultural Ex perts and Extension work render the Most Effclent Service to all Agricul tural Organizations in the State of Washington?" Dr. Holland says. "We realize that the money devottd to this purpose is limited and that great economy must be used.

FUR ROBBERY SUSPECTS PROVE INNOCENT PEDDLERS On suspicion of being implicated In the $17,000 fur robbery which occured in Washington, D. C. on Oct ober 4, four men wearing shipping board uniforms wero taken ofT the Shelton stage by Chief Endicott at 0:30 o'clock Wednesday and escort ed to police headquarters. The con tents of their baggage, however, did not tally with the description of the missing furs, and the men were re leased. Saturday night the four men had registered at a local hotel, stored several sea bags, and instructed the hotel keeper not to leave the door unlocked while they were away. As soon as they left the proprietress informed the police. "Because I detained the men they decided not to take out a peddlers' license in Olympia," said Chief Endi cott. "and that suits me all right because I believe the goods are phoney stuff. By wearing shipping board uniforms they wish to give the impression that the goods were aumg gled and consequently of far greater value. They had bills of sale which showed that they acquired the furs honestly." will therefore attempt to devise a highly efficient organization for the aid of the agriculturists of the state."
