Movement^ of potatoes to the cen tral markets continue, heavy accord ing to reports received here today. The heaviest shipments come from Maine and the central statw, but a considerable quantity is also being shipped fipom points in North Dakota and" Minnesota, according to J. H. Griffin, Great Northern freight agent. To date about 600 carloads of spuds have been shipped out of Greater Grand Forks, while any number of the smaller towns hereabouts have shipped from 100 to over 600 cars. Hoople holds the record for a town of its size with a shipment of 686 cars. A considerable quantity re mains yet to be shipped fro'm this point. Kempton and Buxton each shipped out over ttt ears, while 202 carloads have left Park River so far this year. Edinburgh sent out 105, Hillsboro 170, Crystal 1S6. In the western part ot the state, a district not known particularly for potatoes, has also a good record in Berthold, that shipped out 310 cara. In Min nesota, Ulen. a few miles from Crookston shows a good record of 500 cars, while Halstad. a seem to be a very creditable showing. The greatest need at the present time is potato warehouses, according to those in close touch with the spud situation. To meet this demand, a fact' potato.?"™ is more storage facilities on the farm. At the present time, most farmers are forced to bring their produce di rect from the field to market. This of course gluts the market and pro duces an inevitable slump. Many farmers expect to build root houses on the farm this year to -nable them to, dispose of their crop gradually.

Kane Talks On Rotary Meeting ~(-r- Dr. Thomas F. Kane, president of the,University of North Dakota, gave a talk before the Rotary club'at noon today, on the annual convention of the fifteenth district of Rotary, held at Duluth recently. Perhaps the chief value to be de rived from such gatherings, Dr. Kahe. said, was the development of the "get together" spirit. At Duluth the Ro tarians not only met" their Rotarian neighbors in their own state, but also those of three other states, and they had an opportunity to acquire a feel ing of general neighborliness, he said. The address made by Governor R. A. Nestos of North Dakota, brought a recognition to this state from the other three states represented tl\at could not havp -been gained hu any other way, Dr. Kane said, because of the fact that Mr. Nestos was a Rotar ian, speaking to Rotarians. Dr. Kane emphasized the point that Rotary not only has conceived the practicability of ethidal teachings, but has provided a definite plan for their practice. The local Rotarians went, on record as being opposed to any change in the 15th district. There has recently been discussion of changing this district of Rotary* Autoists Have Hard Going In Suburbs Street Car Delayed, Autoists, who find it necessary to leave the pavement these days, are having a rather sticky time of it. Even the street cars must suffer. A little Ford, venturing into the suburbs Monday night without chains, tried to bury itself in the mud, in the path of the street car, with the result that the latter was delayed for half an hour, while the street car patrons lifted it bodily onto a dryer spot. This iKither upset the street railway service for a time, to the discomfiture of' pat rons. To'remedy some of the worst spots, Street Commissioner B. O. Serbo has a crew of men at work "hauling cin ders on the streets. New Equipment For Co. I»eal Guard Unit to Be Transformed Into Machine Gun Company. According to word received here by Captain H. I...

An unusually small vote will be cast in the city election here today according to indications this after noon. The largest vote cast in any pre cinct at '3 o'clock today was 15, the number voting at the city hall, in the Fifth ward. Other wards reported all the way from three to eight votes. This is due to, the fact that the four candidates to fill vacancies in the city administration have no opposition, and hence voters probably consider voting superfluous. The four candidates are as follows: Parkl board, M. F. Murphy. Park board, John Void. Eolice magistrate, R. J. Purcell. Justice of the peace, Phil McLough lin. All are candidates for re-election, with the exception of John Void, who filed for the, place in opposition to Max Rabinovich, who later withdrew frbm the race. MRS. C.
