AT IDAHO FALLS (Continued from page one) The more progressive growers try to plant potatoes on alfalfa sod, which gives a fertile soil comparatively free from disease. Fortunately southern Idaho is free from the Colo rado ipotato beetle and tuber moth found in many other sections, and also diseases such as early and late blight. However, the growers have to contend with fusarium, rhizotonia BOOTH TARKINGTON MB FREWUC This eminent hoosier has for years been acclaimed one of the greatest of American authors, "The Turmoil," "Seventeen" and the Penrod stories, are only a few of the many from his pen that have made fame, popularity and wealth for him.

Much improvement in grading has been effected through the shipping point inspection service, although unfort,unate»ly in some instances the growers have brought great pressure to bear upon the inspectors to have them relax inspection enough to pass stock not strictly up to the require ments of the United States grades, The trade wants clean, good stock; and uniform grading practices will do much toward stamping the Idaho product as one that can be depended upon. One of the big reasons why potato growers from other sections of the country have been so success ful in the past is that the high qual ity of their potatoes has resulted in a demand for their product greater than the supply. There is no reason why Idaho growers should not enjoy similar success if they will grade, pack, and ship their potatoes so as to place them on the markets in first class condition. Uniform Grades Advisable. It is only by tlhe standardization of Idaho potatoes to conform to uniform grades that any improvement in mar keting conditions can be expec r ed. Potatoes are shipped in carload îlots from practically every State in the Union. Some of these states grade to United States grades No. 1 Mid No. 2; and if Idaho stock is to compete successfully in the markets it must show the same standards of quality and condition. In years of short sup plies and active demand it is often (possible to sell stock that is not strictly up to grade, but in se isons like the one just past, when supplies are heavy and the demand rather light and critical, ungraded stock or stock slightly off-grade sells only at a substantial discount in price. New, or at least sound, clean bags should be more widely used. It is said that one reason why California potatoes sell at better prices that Idaho stock is because they are gen erally packed in new clean bags. The department, suggests that where it is customary to fill the bags so full that the tops will not sew shut a card board with the words "Idaho Pota toes" printed on it be placed in the toip of the bag to protect the potatoes from injury from the twine. This adds to the attractiveness of the package also. The old system of loading sacks in the cars is rapidly giving way to improved loading methods. The early crop and the first of the late crop are now gener ally loaded with the sacks on end and with ventilating space through the car. The more progressive ship pers load in the winter what is call ed a 2 1-2 built-up load. The sacks are intermeshed so that a space of 12 to 18 inches is left between the load and sides of the car. It is custo I mary to line the cars with paper for II winter shipments, and false floors are used generally. The market news reports issued by the bureau's temporary field station reflect the movement of the crop and market conditions from day to day. This information is secured by em-! ployes of the bureau, and is assem bled and distributed by wire so that it is possible for tlhe grower and ship per to keep in close touch with the markets. The daily reports issued from the bureau's station at, Idaho Falls can be had by anyone upon re quest of Homer A. Harris, Idaho Falls, Idaho. The service is free. oooooooooooooo o o ° GROVELAND NEWS O O o ooooooooooooooo Mrs. James Christensen entertain ed at supper Tuesday evening in honor of Mr. Christensen's birthday.

Commander Leeper Sends Letter of Felicitation to President of Idaho Federation of Labor. Lewiston, Sept. 5.—"The Ameri can Legion is in sympathy with ev ery legitimate aspiration of the working people of Idaho and the na tion," says R. D. Leeper, commander of the Idaho department of the le gion in a Labor Day letter to R. H, Park, president of the Idaho Feder ation of Labor. The letter, which was made ipublic and which offers felicitations to labor in Idaho on the day especially sed aside for it, is in part as follows: "The department of Idaho of the American Legion extends greetings and offers felicitations to labor, both organized and unorganized, of Idaho, on this day which is dedicated to it. Labor Day has ibeen set aside by au thority of our great state as a day whereon shall be celebrated the worth and dignity of the labor of those who perform it. Labor Day is set apart to commemorate all honor by all persons in all walks of life; Its appeal is therefore universal. "The American Legion is composed o^ young men of our country who protected it in times of peril, recruit ed from all walks of life. No one class of people ever have or ever will dominate or control the legion or Its policies. It is our right to make our decisions upon all public questions as they arise, bound only by the dio tates of our pwn conscience and we hope our decisions in the past have always been just and right. Because of t,he universality of its membership we feel the legion to truly represent the mind and heart of America. We aim to stand only for things which are best for the state and nation. Correct Impressions. "In this view of our purposes and to correct any fais» impressions fos tered iby an element hostile to those purposes, it is well to affirm on this day that the legion is in sympathy with every legitimate aspiration of the working people of Idaho and the nation. We feel every movement which is unselfishly prosecuted under the institutions, ideals and principles of our country, which has for its object making our peolple happy and more conten-ed is a move toward better citizenship and better Ameri cans. The attainment of tlhese ends by these means is the very acme of patriotic endeavor. "The legion desires to have it un derstood that it stands in its rela tions toward t'he laboring people ex actly the same as toward any other class. We are all Americans and the legion welcomes into its rank any loyal American who is eligible. The department gladly offers its services to aid in a patriotic way in cele brating this day and I trust your committees will feel free to call upon local posts for any help which they can render in the various commun ities. Let us join together for the maintenance and preservation of the ideals which have made America great in our march toward the goal for which we strive." sipelas.
