Just before the Hone of the luncheon Mr. tyr stated that the ladies of the Muie Study Club had asked him to rail for volunteers at the table to ro to the courthouse and move their piano from the first floor to the basement. Almost immediately. If not oon er, the crowd melted away. Finally, however, a resolute band composed of heavyweight like II. L. Broadwell and F. If. Oberthior, headed for the courthouse. On the way two husky recruit in the persona of C. C. Rockwell and Pill Carroll were mim ed up. "Rock" looked the volun teer over carefully, then remarked to Carroll: "Come on Bill, if up to uv!" Ju"t who did the real work is still under debate, but that piano wa moved for the ladies.

I.andrum, made an excellent talk on the gmpe a a commercial possibility under irrigation. Mr. I.andrum said he had raised nineteen grape crops in this country and venteen of them fruited nicely. I.nte front in May of tw years out of nineteen hud prevented crops in those years. He said that (Trapes were Ion lived, there being some vine heie now over twenty year of aire, and th-it if neglected they would still live, and though not very productive, v hile they would come to life quickly and deliver a biK profit if watered and well cared for. Practically all varieties do well here. He estimated conserva tively that 6KH vine could be set out to the acre and twenty pounds of irrnpes to the vine would yield about $700 per acre at the market price of four or five cent. Of course it costa more to harvest and handle a crape crop than a kafir or wheat crop. But the profit i here. Mr. Ijindrum declared, if water and proper care and cultiva tion are given the vines. He hoped to see the time come when some enterprising irrgation farmer would plant several acres and tet out the commercial possibilities of thia coun trv. F. H. Oberthier also made a (food grape talk. sfttting thnt in his opin ion it whs the mot feaible money crop in prospect. The Chamber of Commerce is now engaged in col lecting data on the grape, its cul tivation and marketing, etc.. which will be (riven publicity from a local standKnnt in the near future.
