Idaho Kiwanians Arc Trying
To Effect Better Marketing Conditions
For Their Enormous Potato Crop
The effect of Kiwaniiins influence
placed baik of the economic proh
lems of Ihi- nation is yet to he learn
but we Mitmit that the following
letter in worthy of line's ronsidern
tlun, ami believe that in the writer's
attempts to create bct'er nnikoing
condition fur tin- prnilui'i mention
ed he is pulling some mighty strniu
levers for bringing about a practical
solution to the problem.
This, it happens, is the first letter
of its kind brought to our attention
this is the first instance of a local
Kiwanis rluli getting buck of a nn
tioniil problem, anil we hetirtily ceo.
grntuliite the writer for taking such
practical steps for discovering a
medium through whirh to deliver
his message to the people.
The Kiwanis club is one of mag
nificent possibilities, just like the Ro
tary, I. ions and nil other similar or
ganizations. These clubs are composed of men
whose efforts are to he so directed
that constructive work might be tba
Ultimate results of their labor, and
we believe that the Nampa Kiwunis
Club secretary has started sometluvK
that will discover the great influen
tial power of the Kiwanis club.
The letter is as follows;
Nampa Kiwanis Club
Nampa, Idaho
Kiwanis Club,
Lubbock, Texas.
Iear Kiwanians:
Our attention has been mlled to
the fact that the potato crop in
America this year is menaced hv the
most un-favorable market ronduioi.s
that have ever confronted the in
dustry. It is apparent that.the great oo
tato crop, which the American farm
ers have produced is, on account "
bad market conditions, not an asset
but a liability in many sections of
the country. The farmers of Itbtho
have produced and have ready for
market, over iMl.not) cars of the tin
est potatoes grown in the world,
with no market at the present time
and with the farmers in many in
stances unable tn hear the expense
of harvesting their crop.
The total potato crop in the Tin
ted States is estimated by the De
partment of Agriculture at -I 10,
000,000 bushels which, wih one sni
ffle ex eptuiii, is the largest crop,
ever produced in this country. This
condition, toirether with the r.-tilr.d
and coal strikes and other economic
drawbacks, has caused our potato
crop in many sections to be of prac
tically no value and to be worth less
than the cost of production in prac
tically every producing section in
the country.
Our Chamber of Commerce has
started a "Buy a bug of potatoes"
and "Buy your winter's supply of
potatoes now" movement, which 'heyi
intend to extend to every ottter
State producing potatoes in tomniir- i
rial quantities and they have asked j
us to send this letter to "very Ki j
warns Club in America with the sur-
gestion that each of your members I
buy a bug '' potatoes or buy their
u inter' mmiik now. at a fair mark
et price and liiat each of your mem
l,cr unciv-l this to his asoi itres
and t:eu.'hbors. We do not nl; 'ha'
you loiy Idaho potatoes but do uk
thnt yoi buy any kind of poiiitois
that iire avail.'tMe and suitubb.
Since one of America's git'trct
nirru ult un. I industries is on the
verge of bankruptcy and po'at"CS
are a necessity in every home, we
urife ivei v Kiwanian to heed this re
quest, believing that your purchases
and vour influence will nave a ire
metiiluous effect in improving t hi
potato market at this time ntul tl.a
not i.fdv the potato grower but 'he
entire country will be greatly bene
fitted by suving the industry fioir,
We have hesitated about taking
the matter up through Kiwanis but
concluded that a service could be
rendered here by each KiwatiiHn a
no individual and that it would not
be improper to ask that publicity
be given the fact by reading this
letter at your next meetine and
would appreciate your advising us
just what action is taken in the
premise and greatly oblige.
Respect fully submitted,
Nampa Kiwanis Club.
