In u communication to the Alma
Record jesterday, H. W. Hurt, local
agent for the Ann Arbor railroad
furnished the following information
relative to the strike of the shopmen
on the Ann Arlnir railroad:
"The shopmen on the Ann Arbor
railroad have not presented any
grievance of any sort to the Mr.nage
ment of the Ann Ailor R. K. and
that the strike is one simply in defi
ance of the United States Railroad
Labor Hoard and the Goe i ment.
"The United States Labor Hoard
e ftablislu-tt under an aef passed hy
Congress, after an exhaustive hear
ing, established an hourly wage for
the shop worker:-, iU'eetive July 1,
1922,. which leave:; :;in h worker : a

L'OO". in excess of the rate prevail
ing December, H'17, but they are not
inclined to accept tlu- i duet ion, and
by united action throughout the
country, are defying the tribunal liv
ing such wage as well a" th' govern
ment. "At revel al conference' held be
tween the management of the Ann
Arbor railroad and the commit tee
rcpiesenting the .shop employes on
that load, every dispute, fancied or
otherwise, was taken up and dir po-. d

27,000 Citizen
The war department has issued in
structions to the coipi area com
manders for summer training eamp
in accordance with the sums provided
under the appropriation act for the
fiscal year l'.'li'b
Plana call for the training of UT.nuO
young nun between the ages of IT
and 27 in the citizen's military camps
3,000 to be 'trained in each corps
area for a period of .'?) days. This i
the number for which appropriations
were requested by the war depart
ment. Four thousand and five hundred
members of the Officers' Rese i v
corps will be given 15 days' training,
and 900 an additional .) days' of
training as instructors in the citizens'
milita ry.
Five hundred reserve officers will
be authorized to be trained in each
corps area, divided by grade approxi
mately as follows:
General officer", 1; rnlonels, 5;
lieutenant-colonel-,, l'.t; majors, I'l;
captains, 1200; first lieutenants, 211;
second lieutenants, I Li.
One hundred other reserve eoip;
officers will be sent to special service
rchools for a three months' course of
Appropriations were requested 1 y
the war department for the training
tf 18,000 of the approximate w;,uuo
reserve corps officers.
It is impracticable to allot the
$5,000 appropriated for the training
of the enlisted reserve corps. Corps

to recommend as to the number to be
Just how many of the national
guard will be trained cannot be de
finitely stated until estimates from
state adjutants general have been re
ceived. . It is believed that all the
national guard troops will spend 1T
days in their summ -r training camps.
The four-day preliminary camps of
instruction for officers and i. on
commissioned officers, target prac
tice, except during the 15 day camps,
and state rille competitions have been
eliminated definitely from the train
ing program for the natb.nal guard.
In view of the curtailment of ap
propriations for horses, plans are be
ing considered for sending national
guard, cavalry and artillery to regu
lar army rotations in order to utilize
animals and equipment of the regular
organizations so far as is practicable.
There. are still vacancies at ('amp
Custer, it is reported and those who
desire to attend the camp should con

the local post offi"e, who can furnish
information relative to the'eamp and

young people's work has been organ

young people's chorus has been or

also been purchased by the various

Rey. Shoufier, in addition to being
pastor of the church, lias joined
heartily in all. of the moveme nts for

has conducted a week day Hible class
for high school students. At present
he is the chairman of the education

Church Council.
Rev. Shoufier has not yet accepted
any other pastorate and probably
will not. do so until after he has

Hot Congressional
Primary Race On
Republicans of the Kighth Congres
sional district of Michigan may sc.
a real warm race between now and
time for the primary elect hn, Sep
tember 12, as two hats have been
thrown into the ring by aspirants to
Joseph V. Forclney's seat in congress,
with every expectation that others
will yet get into the fight for the
Republican nomination, which in past
years, or at least since the advent of
I'dnlney, has I ecu the equivalent of
i A few days after William Smith of
St. .Johns declared his candidacy for
the in mination on the Republican
ticket, an announcement that came
right on the heels of Mr. FordneyY,
announcement to retire, Rird .1. Vin
cent of Saginaw stepped into the race
as an act ive candidate.
Vincent, who is a World War vet
eran, is 12 eair of age. Prior to
'going into the service he va:i prose
cuting; attorney of Saginaw county
and was serving his second term,
when he resigned to enter the service.
After bis discharge he became- city
attorney of Saginaw, a post which Ik:
now holds.
Political rumor, during the last tw

the name of lr. 1. .1. llaviland of
Owosso, aii' ther war veteran, as a
pos-ible eandidate. He has not yet
atiiinied or denied being a possible
'candidate. At piesent. lie is eonii' t

is still being; meiiti..n-e as a possible
candidate. Others may also spring
up between now and Augirt 12, the

Fertilizer Needed
With Alfalfa Crop
The tomuioii bedief that alfalfa:
can: es the soil to become more fertile',
i; true only in far as nitrogen h
concerned, other plant food element .
suffering a loss as with other crop'-,
according to O. lb Pi ice, of the Mich

The result of tlii- lend-n.'y will in

in the soil, unl '-s prope r fertilize,
treatments are made.
Alfalfa, whe n propei ly inoculated
at -eeding, take:-, the nitiogeu from
the air, and, by means of the bacteria
on its roots, stores it in the plant tis
sue," says Mr. Rrie'. When a crop
of bay is ie move d there is l.o loss of
nitrogen from the soil because it
cairn- from the air, 1 ut theie is a los:
of other plant food elements either
than nitrogen, particularly phosphor
us and potassium. Analysis shows
that with every ton of alfalfa hay
said from the farm there is removed
with it 5o pounds, of nitrogen, 4
pounds of potassium.
"Taking the average yield of alfal
fa in Michigan at 2 tons per acre, the
losses of phosphorus ami potassium
would b" M pounds and 1 pounds per
acre-, respectively, where all the hay
is scbl. Fee . ling all the hay and ap
plying all the manure will not bal

the organic matter, 2f per cent of the
nitrogen and phosphorus, ami 10 per
cent of the potassium are lost in
"Many of the farmers in south
' western Mic higan are realizing this
situation and are applying from 2i0
t, :)( pounds of acid phosphate in
their rotation, or are u: ing some high
grade mixed fertilizer. It is a very
good practice to apply 200 to 2."(!

"Lookout feir the baby ami the

summer these words resound into
every home from every division of the
state department of health. Infant
death rate-s since RJll have been on
the decrease ami the enlargement of
th' bureau of child hygiene this year
gives hope of further lowering.
Placing herself firmly on a plat
form in favor of the proverb that
"none cares to be accuseel of locking
the stable after the horse is stolen,"
Dr. Rlanche M. Haines, newly ap
pointed director of the bureau f
child hygiene ami public health nurs
ing of the rtate health department,
today sounded a warning to mothers
of babies less than one year obi.
"This is the season of the year," says
Or. Haines, "when the infant mor
tality rate begins to climb."
July has always been the signal
for incieased deaths among infants.
Figures compiled in the vital statis
tics bureau for 1121 how the death
rate began to increase in July and
continued upward until September.
