JGRICULTUBAL EXTENSION SERVICE RETURNS RIG DIVIDENDS 10 COUNTY Work of Three Agents Means Large Increase in Wealth and Efficiency of Rural Districts and Wide Advertis ing of Local Products. Some official estimates has been made that the county's share of cash outlay for the county extension ser vice in the 1922 budget now being compiled by the county commiss ioners, could be reduced without any damage, a proposition the extension service can figure out in submitting Its own estimate of educational work outlined and necessary to carry on if the county is to get the benefits that the service contemplates according to E. B/ Stookey county agent. There is no end of benefits that the county has derived from the ser vice it was organized in Thurston county. The county agent the home demonstration agent and the county club leader, have all greatly aided In perfecting farm work and life thru out the county. In the home demon stration departmnt work the benefit of farm women includes numerous dressmaking and patter cutting dem onstrations, textile testing, schools, wider use of labor saving devices, in- . stallation of water systems and sep tic tanks and the excellent result in 'the follow-up work on the milk cam- | paign. ( Club work has enrolled 475 mem- j bers this year, an increase of 125 I over last year. These organizations ■lnclude calf, pig, canning garden, I potato, hot lunch and sewing clubs (or children throughout the county. The extension service has con ducted a series of berry study tours and lectures over the county, has given eight pruning and spraying demonstrations. Through coopera-! tion with the state department of agriculture and project leaders of the county more than 1,500 cows have been tested for tuberculosis. The j gain In smut treatment demenostra-' tions and six drainage demonstra-' tions have been held. A federal hun-| ter and trapper to exterminate pre- i datory animals was procured for the oounty by extension service coopera-; tion with the farm bureau and the; county game commission. A dosen livestock and dairy study tours and lectures have been conducted.. j ' Saving Is Shows As a basis for simplified estimate of extension service value to agri cultural Interest of the county, an 'Outline ot what has been under taken and accomplished in the past year through extension service or ganisation and operation, and in co operation wltb other organisations 'ls herewith presented. Figures on cash saving or increase of Income; are given only as to activities upon j which they can be actually credited! ait against that total it is to be r«Sh«mbered that the extension ser vice whole budget for next year is $9,585, so far as the county is con cerned. The state and national gov ernment match the county expen diture practically dollar tor dollar in supervisory service and extension specialist work additional to the sal ary apportionment. The extension service is establish ed to carry to the people on the farm the benefits of the best farm practices and scientific information that has been made available by experiment stations generally and the U. S. department of agriculture In any county the extension ser vice is a cooperative arrangement whereby the funds for the work are provided by the U. S. department of agrlcuture, the state college and the county. In Thurston county there are three workers in the extension office servece, the county agent, home demonstration agent and club agent. The work ot each agent is with the farmer on the farm, women in the farm home and the boys and girls. Extension activities are large ly carried on by demonstrations, working with organized communi ty groups and are largely of an edu •cational nature. In placing a money value on work of this character it is necessary to confifine the estimates to»farmers buying and selling, which occupies but a small part of the extension service program of work, altough marketing is coming to be considered as much within extension service scope as anything else, in finding the most favorable markets at the least expense to the producer. Buying At Wholesale Pri< «-s. Consideration of the various ex tension activities in Thurston county shows an appreciable service all ready rendered through cooperative buying and selling, as an instance, shows a saving to the farmers of approximately |2,000 since January 1. Figured from August 1, 1920, would show approximately ?4,000 saved on powder. These purchases repri'Stit fufhcimt powder to clear 200 ;•■_]' ■; of land which probably would not be cleared but for the favorable wholesale price obtainable through carload guying through the local dealers. Through the extension service land farm bureau the same plan of jcooprative buying was followed in procuring two car loads of super phosphate for Thurston county last spring, one which was delivered at Olympia and the other at Yelm. This 60 tons of fertilizer is sufficient to enrich about 420 acres. Fertilizer demonstrations in the county and resultant use of the superphosphate have increased crop yields from 25 to 75 per cent. At Yelm hay was in creased from the ordinary crop of two to three and a half tons per acre. This increase of crop means additional income of $24 per acre ! with a fertilizer cost of ?6 per acre. By giving the total fertilized 420 acres in the county only one third incrase per acre, the cash income added through use of the fertilizer nets more than $2,500. Similar cooperative buying of seed corn through a local dealer by which a superior strain was introduced re presents a saving In purchase price of only about S6O, but the produc tion increase should run close to 100 tons, making an additional valua tion of about SSOO. The June strawberry marketing campaign organized by the exten sion service is acknowledged by the growers to have been an important factor in saving the crop, which by conservative estimate this year was 30,000 crates in Thurston couny. Figuring a saving of only 10 cents a crate on the Thurston county cam paign supplemented by similar cam paigns in King, Pierce and Grays Harbor counties, the total easily was $3,000 to Thurston county growers.

The local high school prospects for a winning team are growing larger as practice continues and Coach Mil holin's policy of athletics for every one has brought out a wealth of ma terial not dreamed of before. Although the first team has not been chosen outright, still it will probably be centered around La Chance, Capt. Stark, Koenig. Berlin, Rennie, M. Mills, Cooper, White, Peasley, Convery, G. Mills, W. Alver son, Scott, Forbes and McKinney. The team will consist of a heavy line, averaging about 165 and a light but fast backfleld, which, with Mil holin, McCroskey and Fullerton as coaches, will be a combination that ought to net yardage this season. Second Team Good. Besides the first team there will be a second that will give the first team men some good scrlmage work. Tho the scrubs will necessarily be lighter than the first team, they will not by any means be featherweights and when a second string linesman hits the man on the receiving end will very probably realize <he is up against a tough proposition to keep his berth on the first squad. Miller, second team is hard at work rounding out a second team squad and teaching them the technicalities of football. So far the practice has consisted merely of punting, passing, and fall ing on the ball with some line prac tice. Next week, however, the dumm ies, the best Spaulding puts out, will be up and the real work in tackling and blocking will begin. Later on there will be scrimmage between the first and second teams and as men show up in there practice games they will be promoted or put in the %crubs accordingly. First Game in Two Weeks. The first game of the season will be played in the next two weeks at which game the new field will be dedicated along with fifteen brand new football outfits, complete from head gear to cleated shoes, whffch will adorn the bodies of the first team.
