EARLY POTATOES YIELHEST CROP According to word received from the Dept, of Agriculture by County Agent Buckman. potato shipments during the first months of the main crop season often depend less upon the size of the crop than upon its earliness of maturi ty, the price offered and the mental at titude of producers and buyers. A comparison of the estimated po tato crop and the early main crop shipments and the prices during the past five years will show a heavy move meat in seasons of light crops and fairly attractive early conditions, while in seasons of heavy production the car'y shipments are light. Appar ently producers and dealers govern their actions somewhat in accordance with the impression left by events of the preceding season. I f a season of heavy supply and low prices preceded holders remember the experience and are more anxious to sell early. But after a year of 'comparatively high prices holders are reluctant to meet a lower range of prices than those of the previous season. As a matter of fact, however, it is plain that in the long run the price is influenced mainly by the yield of the same season and only slightly by the conditions of the season before , Early maturity is another cause that often promotes active early shipments. The most common cause of early ma turity is a dry rot, hot season, which also tends to cause shortage of the crop. The following table show s the ap parent correlation of light crop, early movement, and high prices for the past four seasons. ,Yr Carl’d sh’mt Est’m'td Sept to Oct 1 crop price Cars Bushels Bushels 1918 24,960 14,976,000 411,860,00 $2-$3 1919 26.232 15,739,200 355.773.COO 2.50-3 1920 17,806 10,683.600 428,338.000 1.5C-3 1921 33,348 20.038,800 345.844.00t4 2-3.15 THELMA JOHNSTON MARRIES CARSON CITY MAN Miss The'ma Johnston and Harold Vanderheide were maried at Carson City Tuesday evening.

We wonder why. It is being rumored that they are going to give a party on the coming Friday evening. W e are waiting anxiously for more particulars Sparks High defeated the 'ocaI 'hoys last Saturday, and although Yerington failed to score, it was a' fast game, and well p'ayed. This was Ycriugton's first football game, and considering that, they put up a very game fight. The Sparks boys companioned the home hoys on their c'ean and fair play ing. They also invited the Yerington high school football team to an enter tainment at Sparks high school Nov ember 12th. on which date the home team wi'l play Reno on the latter s ground. After the game Sparks ex pects them to go to the entertainment which will consist of a dinner and dance" that evening. As Snost of you know, school spirit or otherwise school loya'tv is one of the most essential factors, that must make up a school that is to he recog nized 'by its own community and to es tablish its reputation throughout its state. Some communities hard'v know that they have a school, and it investi gate! it will be found that this ignor ance is due to the lack of school spirit by its students. If they are doing anything or 'earning, it is up to the individual student, each and every one, to let tin people know about,it, and boost the school along. One of the best ways to keep a | sehoo' spirit going is through athlet ics and dramatics. There are draw backs to these, as every student is not athletically inclined or is not imagin ative or talented enough to enter into dramatics. And it is gcncra'ly found j that it is through these students that a school gets most of its knocks. Or; even sometimes a student rit this sort j thinks that he or she is real patriotic, i hut has the miscontrued idea, that i school spirit consists mainly of seeing how much rooting or noise they can make on the sidelines during an ath letic. contest. They support their school in this way and a rooting sec | tion is essential to a school contest, j hut school spirit should not end in the rooting ga'lerv. \\ ha( a school j needs is each student’s support in their own homes and let outsider;, i know that they are a lively and up-to date bunch, and that the decency and respect of the school is as good as the community. \ COYOTE POISON CAMPAIGN TO BE INAUGURATED Ail extensive poisoning campaign in which strychnine in great quanti ties will be spred all over the state for coyotes to feed upon will be started within the next few weeks by the United States biological survey in cooperation with the Nevada Live Stock Association, reports an ex change. 'Phis method of killing off the animals is quicker and cheaper than by using hunters with traps, and an ef fort will he made to make the coyotes hard to find. During September over 1000 coyotes and eats were killed by forty-two hunters scattered over the state. The coyote skins are becoming valuable again and will be sold.
