SI BM KII'TION I'll ICE, $2.00 A V EAR The work of the agricultural extension office is one that is of so great importance that it should be generally understood by both the town and country population of the county. There are three agents in the Thurston county office. They are E. B. Stookey, agri cultural agent; W 11. Dunham, county club leader, and Miss Ruth Kennedy, county demonstration agent. The agricultural agent gives his time to advising the farmers on their problems. He studies out crop possibilities and fathers experimentation. He looks after the promotion of drainage and clearing proposals and acts as agent for the farmers in wholesale purchase of seed and fertilizers. The club loader organizes the boys and girls into clubs for va rious purposes. The girls learn to cook, can and sew; the boys are encouraged to raise thoroughbred stock and otherwise learn to he roine efficient and progressive farmers. In the matter of promoting the breeding of registered stock the club leader's work will far more than pay for itself in a few years. Tliei value of Thurston county herds will be greatly increased and the effect will be felt by the whole county because of the increased reserve capital and buy ing power of the farmers. Miss Kennedy devotes her time to the instruction of the girls' clubs and to organizing demonstrations for the women of the county. These include new features of housekeeping and such other matters as judging textiles and the like. The saving to the people if tK.y can learn to judge a piece of drygoods for what it really is and not he charged all-wool prices for half cotton or shoddy or be similarly put upon is bound to be very large. Asidle from the statehouse, Olympia is an agricultural commu nity and Thurston is an agricultural county. It behooves the people to know what is being done in an agricultural way in their county.

WEST SIDE COUNTY ASSESSORS SUPPORT LOWERLEVY PLEAS King, Pierce and Grays Har bor Officials Cite Losses. EXECUTIVE SESSIONS FOLLOW OPEN HEARING Grays Harbor County Representative Objects to Unjust Penalty of Recent Years. West side county assessors yester day added their pleas in support of lower assessed valuations as a basis for 1922 taxes to those already heard by the state board of equalization. Assessors from the smaller counties gave way to representatives of King Pierre and Grays Harbor counties on the ground that their cases were so similar no added presentation need be made. Frank W. Hull, assessor of King county, asserted that there had been a net loss of $1,000,000 in property valuations i:i King county this year through failure of the shipyards and that all property had been shown some decline In value. Eighty-five per cent of King county's taxes falls on Seattle, he said, adding that Seat tle preperty values have been figured too high. He asked consideration for this condition in fixing King county's ratio. Austin Takes Exception. Harry C. Austin, Pierce county assessor, took exception to the state ment of representative of the North ern Pacific railroad before the board Wednesday that assessors were not making an effort to assess on a 50 per cent valuation. Austin asserted that the assessors were coming near to the the correct 60 per cent valua tion as it is humanly possible to do. Other business, like -the railroads, have been hit by depression, and should be accorded the same con sideration by the state board as is given the railroads. E. B. Benn, representing the as sessor, the county commissioners and the Taxpayers' League of Grays Har bor county, said his county had been penalized heavily in recent years, especially in 1920, by great increases in assessed valuation out of propor tion with increases in other counties of the state. From $8.40 per capita In 1919, Grays Habor county taxes had increased to sls per capita in 1920, he said. He complained that Grays Harbor county had been as sessed by the state for 25 per cent of the logging railroads of the state wheareas a check of the mileage showed that out of a total of over 2,000 miles of such roads Grays Har bor county had approximately 261 miles, or about 10 per cent. The county also was assessed for 10 per cent of the manufacturing plants of the state when In comparison with King, Pierce, Snohomish, Whatcom and others, whereas Grays Harbor's proportion of mills and manufactur ing plants was much smaller. Data and affidavits purporting to show the injustice of' past taxation in the county were presented to the board with a request for relief. Yesterday's session ended the pub lic hearings before the board. Execu tive session will not be held, covering from two to three weeks, in which will be determined the equalized as sessed valuation o? the state and the 1 ratios for the various counties.
