Promises to be Interesting Feature
I" of the Coming Round-up. Keen
Rivalry Shown by Local
Potato Growers
As the last day set for the recep
tion of potatoes to be entered In tho
contest which It to bo a feature of
the coming Round-up at tho Agricul
tural Collcgo of Utah draws near,
the potato growers In the valley aro
sparing no effort to get tholr various
products on exhibition. A splendid
array of presumably prlzo winning
potatoes has already been received
by Dr. P. S. Harris, who Is In
chnrgo of this feature of tho coming
Hound-up and It is expected that by
tho end of this week all of those In
tending to exhibit will havo sent In
their prize winners. Tho day set for
the closing of tho entries is set for
v January 20. This date calls on tho
coming Monday and It will bo seen
that all those desiring to onter Into
tho contest will havo to get busy if
they aro to havo their potatoes in
In time. Tho directions for collect
ing the exhibits are as follows:
1. Select a dozen potatoes of each
variety, giving especial attention to
uniformity of slzo and shape, free
dom from dlseaso and other points
making up good commercial potatoes
2. Wrap each tuber In a paper by
Itself, and put all together In a pack
age or box, so they will carry with
out Injury.
3. Address the package Department
of Agronomy, Agricultural College,
Utah, and send the cheapest way,
usually by express.
4. Each variety must bo properly
labeled. It Is useless to send pota
toes tho names of which tho grower
docs not know.
G. Largo potatoes are not always
x a good potatoes, so do not expect slzo
LjtfB to bring prize. Shapo, uniformity and
M truoness to typo nro much more lm
I portant.
I 6. Send In your samples at onco
as we havo good places to storo
I them.
I 7. If further Information Is desired
M wrlto to Dr. P. S. Harris at the
W College.

spector of dairies spoko on this sub
ject beforo tho students of the San
itation class and others who were
regularly assembled for chapel on
Friday, Jan. 10 at the Agricultural
Mr. Lambert pointed out the dan
gers arising from tho use of Impure
milk and told many Incidents which
havo como under his notice while
traveling through tho state, Illustrat
ing how very" closely related are dls
easo and nn Impure milk supply.
Ho mentioned a common practice
of having cream separators In tho
barn; of using milk palls for a week
at a time without washing; of tho
boys or men who milk putting on
the cast off nnd dirtiest clothing pos
sible when going to milk all of
which aro being corrected by dairy
inspection. Fines for some offenses
wero necessary to bring about tho
desired corrective measures.
The spcakor told rather humorous
ly of the efforts put forth by some
men to ovade tho dairy Inspector.
Others would not reveal whero their
sopnrator and milking utensils were
kept until threatened with fine or
Imprisonment. Three bishops wero
nmong the offenders.
But the old feeling of enmity usu
ally evinced towards Inspectors Is
being broken down, likewise the hap
hazard and unsanitary mothods so
long thought to be proper, aro giv
ing placo to tho new, cautious health
ful ones.
"Tho modern sanitary milking pall
allows but one-tenth of tho Impurity
to get Into milk during the process
of milking," declared tho speaker.
That tho old pall allowed.
After making n plea for cleanli
ness all along tho lino, Incudlng tho
hands and clothing of tho milker,
the palls, tho udder, tho separator,
nnd tho plnco of storngo for tho milk
aftor milking Mr. Lambert closed
with a striking stntoment, to-wlt:
"Tho best remedy for all this pres
ont and provlous carelessness about
dallies would bo to let tho older lino
of dairymen go out of tho business.
Wo need young men with n collogo
education to put dairies on their
proper basis. Thcro is money In

Tells Those Who Attend Trenton
Banquet That He Will Surround
Himself as President With
MhL Progressives
Princeton. N. 'J Jan. 13. In a
speech to the presidential electors of
Now Jersoy, delivered nt a banquet
In Trenton, just prior to tho casting
of tho electoral vote for Wilson and
'Marshal, President-elect Wilson to
day made It plain that ho Intends to
surround himself ns president with
progressives and only progressives.
This Is the first time tho president
eloct has dellvorcd himself on this
subject. Tho reactionaries will there
fore find little solnco In his adminis
tration of tho next four years. Tho
speech was wildly cheered and ap
plauded by guests who Included also
tho Democratic legislators, members
of tho stnto commlttco nnd stnto of
ficials. Tho banquet took plnco at
tho Hotel Sterling.
Governor Wilson's speech follows'
Somo men havo been slow to ob
serve but the majority of us havo I
seen that tho people of tho United
States hnvo taken n definite cholco.
I happen to bo ono of tho Instru
ments through whom that cholco Is
expressed, but I am for tho time, nnd
that cholco Is for tho long rutin o
The peoplo of tho United States hnvo
turned tholr faces In a doflnlto direc
tion, and any party, any man who
docs not go with them In that direc
tion they will reject and they ought
to reject.
Says Honor Is Involved
Tboroforo, In looking forwnrd to
tho responsibilities that I am nbout
to assume, I feel first, last nnd nil
tho tlmo that I am acting in a rep
resentative capacity. I nm blddon to
Interpret ns well ns I can tho pur

dotormlnes, tho action only through
tho Instrumentality of porsons who
also represent that cholco I havo no
llborty In tho matter. I Tiavo given
bonds. My sacred honor Is Involved.
Thoreforo, I shall not bo acting as
a partisan when I pick out progres
sives and only progressives. I shall
bo acting ns a roprcsontnllvo of the
peoplo of this groat country. And,
therefore, It Is n matter of supromo BVBl
plcasuro to mo to find In ovory dlrec- BBBl

Impulse that now moves tho wholo : BBBJ
people of tho United StatcB. ' BBBJ
Finds No Division i BBBJ
I do not foresee any serious dlvl- I BBBJ
slotis of counsel In tho Democratic ) BBBJ
party as a national body. On tho BBBJ

Becauso I find, contrary to tho lm- BBBJ
