Rradstreet’s statdf ntent that H4 per cent of all failures are among non-advertisers is signifi cant. Intelligent advertising has be come an essential in every modern in dustry, but what shall the advertiser do in the face bf the war situation when he finds it difficult ui till his or ders? First of all. it should be re membered that the foundation of ju dicious advertising is to fix indelibly the trade mark in. tiie pub lic's mind. A let-up in that campaign must be fatal to any product. So we find George II. Charles, vice-president of the Nmerican Rolling Mill Com pany. declaring the company's, pur pose to continue its advertising, al though for two and a half years it had been unable to supply the demand for its .product. "We are building," said he, " a permanent business edi fice, am, some day we would have to spend millions of dollars huyipg back the business and good will of our clients if they are forsaken in this emergency." Unless advertising is kept up without a break the advertiser loses the result of the initial effort, ill ere is a warning to the advertiser who neglects the dull season in sum mer. When advertisement- are few est is the very time when a message to the public will get the most atten tion. It is good "psychology" to push the advertisement of a winter pro duct in summer and of a summer ftro dltct in winter.—I. e-lie’s. -oo — ODDIE OUT FOR GOVERNOR Kx-Governor Tasker I..

AND POTATO CROPS ,«• i 1 --.* t Investigation Made by State Engineer Assures Enough Water for These Two Crops A called meeting of the water Risers of Mason Valley under the auspices of the Farm Bureau was held in Owl Hall Monday night, it was largely attended by the patriotic fanners of this district who are very anxious that the crops should not fail if coopera tion ami conservation will save them. Vic Bernard, chairman of the Irri gation committee of the Bureau pre sided and 1£. H. Whitacre was the act ing secretary. The purpose of the meeting as explained by VV.-W. Cole man. deputy State Engineer was to arrange so that all may have water for irrigation in spite of the shortage. The plan adopted is the rotation of supply, fields needing it most to have it first, in the order of grain, potatoes, alfalfa. 'I'll i s plan will undoubted ly give the most economical and bene fieial use of the water. \ committee of five was appointed to gather data with regard to'the crops of the valley so that a system in the use of the waiter can he worked out. The men chosen were 1*. O. Stickney. Pete Henrich, C. C. Perry, Joe Borge ami Geo. Osborne. 1 hey hate examined the condition of the crops all over the valley, working Tuesday anil \\ ednesday, and have listed the various crops, deciding what date each field will need water so that a big head will he available when it will do the most good. Tjie com mittee will notify the farmer when it is his turn to use the water and the farmer must take it when it is turned to hint. Any interference with head gates or laterals as set by the water conimis-inner will subject tlie guilty party to the penalties prescribed by la w . Investigations made by the State Engineer and his deputies at the head waters of the river lead them to think that there will be nearly enough wat er to take care of' the crops since it has been withdrawn from the meadow lands in the mountains. Information was received to the effect that pri vate owners at Twin Lakes are will ing to release five feet of water for the use of Mason Valley farmers which will help some. The offer was made to the State Council of Defense and the Food administration. Cooperation between the committees for Mason anil Smith Valleys will al so assist at this time. The Smith Valley meeting was held at Welling ton. Friday evening of last week. Char les Day. presiding, at id D. C. Simp son. 'eeretary. The 'jme action was taken there, the working committee being Fred Fulstone, W. L. Klackwell 11. C. Jessen, Geo. McVicar and Lige Dftfkingon. They have completed their examination and listed the plac es, the water has been turned in from the upland meadows and Smith Val ley is going to save every acre of grain, potatoes and alfalfa there is This Committee had finished the survey of 75(1 acres Thursday night anft had found the potato crops all in good Condition except under the Tunnel Ditch in Missouri Flat, which are now suffering. Grain is not in danger. The good condition of the crops is ilue to the fact that the potato men have used ri.e wat.tr belonging to the alfalfa men. some <>i whom have had no water for garden and stock. The water commissioners have been very lenient with them. The committee will finish the sur vey at once and will make recommend ation.- to State Engineer Case and to the State Council of Defense regard ing the situation and needs of the ' farmers.
