Charges that I. W. W. are flocking to the banners of the nonpartisan league in northwest states and that red radicals are be ing employed as non-partisan league organizers were brought out yester day at an interstate conference of American Legion representatives of Oregon, Washington, Montana. Idaho and Tho conference adopted a resolution bringing these facts to the entire legion in the states con cerned.

The sessions lasted all day and well into the night. Attack is Launched. The meeting was close surveillance in its further ac tivities in the northwest to the end that all activity of agitators em ployed by the league could be checked by law should the activities go beyond proper bounds. The resolution bringing this situ ation to the attention of hundreds of local posts throughout the north west credits the leadership of the non-partisan league with counte nancing if not encouraging the use of red organizers. The resolution reads: AH Posts Informed. "It having been brought to the attention of this conference that members of the I. W. W. and other red agitators In some of the north western states are joining the ranks of the non-partisan league and be coming active in its organization work, evidently for the purpose of using their anarchistic propaganda. and it appearing that the leader ship of the non-partisan league t» . countenenctng if not encouraging the use of such radical organizers. we recommend that this information be given out in the various depart ments of the American Legion for their use In the observation of un American activities.." O. D. Cunningham, representative from Centralla, charged that the red radicule who were active in tho 1. W. W. some months ago have found public opinion in Washington so aroused against them that they no longer boast membership cards. He said he has recognized many of I them carrying on their work under I the cloak of non-partisan league' workers and charged that they have I even undertaken openly to repeal ! the syndicalism laws in the state of !

At I Seattle numerous detours ere made to the surrounding country inelud- ] ing Tacoma and other points of in terest. Mount Rainier was also visited. The car registered 264 miles round trip from Seattle. The road to Rainier is so well built that it was not necessary to change the gear of the car once between Seattle and the top of the mountain. The night was spent at the inn on the top of the mountain. Seventy feet of snow was registered there last win ter. Swiss guides are always at hand to take visitors over the sev eral passes for a stipulated sum. Many cars visit the resort daily, all of which must pay a registrntidh fee of $2.50.

VICE PRESILENT 1 Clearwater as a, Dairy Section I ] INSURES STEADY INCOME 7ITH PRODUCTS AT HIGHEST MARKET PRICES The reconstruction of the farming Industry seems inevitable in lli ir water county. Grain has not b en a-s profitable a crop as it should be in order to make it pay. Itt the past ttie farmers have made e ids meet by selling timber. But the in come from this source is about ex hausted. The fanner is now being thrown back upon the soli itself for his living, made the production of cereals a profitable industry, but these in flated prices can not continue. In fact, the government has already withdrawn its guarantee of a fixed price. This throws the fixing of the price of wheat Into the hands of the grain speculators, and will see to It that the farmer gets the mini mum price afforded by market :on dittons. It is not so with dairy products. The farmer who produces hay and milks cows has a steady income and his produce invariably obtains the highest market price, which is al ways in excess of the pevalltng p -ice of cereals. The market has never been glutted with dairy products. The supply has always fallen far short of the demand. The price and the demand have caused farmers all over the country to "sit up and take notice." In California, for example, many communities that have been regarded as being plmarlly fruit poducing sections have begun to dig up their orchards and are planting alfalfa and clover where the trees once stood. The farmers there have learned that dairy products bring better returns than fruit. Califor nia is becoming less a fruit- produc ing state and more a dairy produc ing state, so that it already ranks among the leading producers of dairy products. It is one of the leading states in the export of dairy products. There is no doubt that Clearwater county will eventually be primarily a dairy section. It has already been amply demonstrated that clover and alfalfa can be grown successfully without irrigation. The tonnage produced is far greater than grain. Further experiments will doubtless show that the production can be materially increased. There is a small patch of ground right in the heart of Orofino that shows what can be done with alfalfa in this (Continued on last page) War-time prices have a to j !
