even in the midst of ice and snow to
B>' v start working on the new plan of coB
operation which has been submitted
by the United States Department of
- Agriculture and State Extension de.,
partment. County Farm Agent W. E.
Hit McComas is already enthusiastic about
Hp the work and has outlined a comrau^^H.
ziity plan of organization which will
^Ky^inCIade committeemen in each comf.jC?
; manity. These committeemen will
choose demonstrators who will enB
deavor from time to time to show how
W best to grow various important prodnets
according to improved methods:

A special campaign has been

there will be an Important meeting at
one In the afternoon at the office of
W. E- McComas In the court house, to
discuss putting together all plans discussed
at the various meetings. In
this'* manner an excellent working ba?sis
will have been established for the
County Plan of Work.
. -Meetings are to be held once a
month in the various communities
throughout Marion county in order
that work may be gone over and dis
cussed and problems of local Interest
f taken up. These meetings will furnish
a common meeting ground where
farmers may co-operatively bny such
materials as fertilizer, seeds, feed and
anything else which may be bought
better and cheaper in large quantities.
It is also planned that through
a co-ocprative working this year, farmers
may pool their products for sale.
If they so desire. There are a hundred
or more objects to be gained
-through co-operative activities. Coun.
ty Farm Agent McComas has his plans
wen in hand and is anxious to get the
work started. The main object is to
so organise all of Marion county farmers
that the county agent may know
at'all times Just what is going on:
so TGtart he may be of greater service
to each farm community. It is impossible
for a county agent to visit every
one of over 2.000 farms. By appointing
demonstrators who through large
experience can best demonstrate to
others more satisfactory methods of
work. County Agent McComas feels
-that a better farm bureau and better
y results from that farm bureau ca^oe

man had been receiving the attentions
of her spouse while the supposed cul

j trol of venereal diseases within the
, ranks, is rigid. Prior to demobiliza '
tion. the tense fighting morale of the
forces is bound to relax. The men will
be buoyant in spirit and eager to celebrate.
When mustered ont they will
' return to conditions in civilian life
! which have been responsible for
venereal disease. Many of them will
j contract it as a result. Unless all
j cases of venereal disease have proper
: treatment during the period of recon
struction. the scourge will reach
alarming proportions. The time from
: now on is the most critical of all.
By authority given by Senate Bill
! No. 129 jessed by the state legislature
; February 16. 1916. the West Virginia
Public Health Council adotped a regulation
adding yenereai diseases to the
list of communicable diseases and
I making it obligatory on physicians to
! report all such cases and to furnish
literature to those so infected.
The Stat? Department of Health under
the supervision of the U. S. Public
Health Service has established a
I bureau of Venereal Diseases at
j Charleston and is making ail exhau3!
tive research into conditoins in ordei
! to disseminate, knowledge which will
I tend toward raising the standard of
-j the state in this particular.
I The department would call atteu
tion to the state law which gives the
I Public Health Council authority to
j compel all individuals suffering from
j venereal diseases in a communicable
i form, to take proper and sufficiently
. prolonged' treatment either at the
hand* of w private physician or at an
Institution. This, law will be rigidly
enforced throughout the state.
