According to advance dope, Black foot, Pocatello, Shelley, and Weston were the teams who should fight it out for the championship of the district, and with one exception, this held true as Aberdeen was for tunate enough to draw a "bye' in the second round, thus causing Shelley to be eliminated by Weston. The games in the first round played on Thursday, were rather slow, the only closely contested ones toeing ibetween Emersoin and Ameri can Falls in the ifirst game played In the afternoon and the game be tween Thatcher and Aberdeen play ed in the evening. These games be ing a see-saw affair until the final 'whistle blew. Dope was completely upset when Aberdeen nosed out TJhatcher who came to the tourna ment with a clear record of games won. Of the seven teams surviving the first round, five of them came from the North half of the district, Firth toeing the only team from thi fl sec tion to toe eliminated and that at the hands qf Blackfoot. All the games in this round, witji the exception of the two above men tioned were rather slo w. None of the stronger teams exerted themsel ves to any great extent, but only played steady enough to win, thus saving their men for the games which were to follow. In this round Pocatello drew Malad which team did not appear upon the scene (hav ing cancelled their trip as was dis covered later, 'because of an epldem ls of flu in their community. Poca tello, therefore, winning by forfei ture by a score of two to nothing. On Friday afternoon at two o'clock, the second round opened with Pocatello meeting McCammon. The first half being exceptionally dose while in the second half, Po catello showed their superiority ov er McCammon by rapidly drawing away from the Southern team. For the first ten minutes of this game, it was possibly the hardest fought game of the tournament as neither team was aible to score either toy field goal or foul shot. In the sec ond game, Blackfoot eliminated Am erican Falls easily out classing the Falls during the entire game with the exception of about three minutes In the second half, when Blackfoot made same substitution.

' Shortly after ten o'clock on Sat-; urday morning the fireworks began in earnest when Blackfoot and Poca- j c tello met in t'he first game of the semi-finals. Blackfoot had wo® from Pocatello earlier In the season 1 on its home floor and Pocatello was conifident of avenging this defeat in ;j this game especially as they were,Mrs. At the opening of the second half, the Blackfoot forwards seemed to be better able to locate the basket and rapidly drew away from the Gate city squad until the score stood twenty-one to eleven in favor Oif Blackfoot. At this time, Blackfoot seemed to slacken Its steam while Pocatello turned loose an eitra sup ply and within a period of three minutes, they toad tied the «core and twenty-tlhree all. At this point, Blackfoot settled down to real busi ness and succeeded in caging two shote from the foulu line and Just as the ball was In the air, the timers pistol sounded, the ball went thru the basket tout the referee did not allow the score claiming that the pistol was fired before the ball left the 'hands of the Blackfoot forward. Thus ended possibly tlhe hardest fought game 0 |f the tournament and »Blackfoot proved its entire superi ority over thé Pocatello squad. In the second game of the morn ing Aberdeen tried its best and put up a game fight to win from Weston but again Weston displayed Chat calm calmness that won for it an easy vlctoroy by a score of eighteen to eleven. In the afternoon, Pocatello and Aberdeen refused to go on the floor in the consolation finals, although such ä game had been announced at the opening of the tournament.

These meetings were well attended by far mers who are showing an active in terest in local and national prob lems. The object of these meetings was bo present to bite farmers the activ ities oif the American Farm Bureau Federat ion, the State Farm Bureau, and to encourage diversified farm ing. Mru. Rose showed that the Am erican Farm Bureau Federation and the State Farm Bureau are doing something for the farmers that means dollars and cents to them. He spoke at some length on diversi fied farming, showing that it is nec essary for the farmers to grow high priced crops instead of hay and grain wthdeh have been our* basic props. The slogan adopted by ttie State Farm Bureau is, "The Cow, the Pig and the Hen." They advise that at lealst six cows, two brood sows, and one hundred hens be kept on every farm. By increasing livestock on | uu " l "« various cropg " r ng ' ! During the past year Nampa alone realized one million two hun dred thousand dollars from dairy and poultry products, which is ou« toalf as mulch as all the agricultural products in Minidoka County, and one-fifth of the value of all agricul tural product^ produced In Bingham County In 1921. When the quantity of production becomes large enough the State Farm Bureau experts to establish an egg marketing zone at Pocatello. It requires about 100,000 hens to make such an origanlzatlon pay. They now have an egg marketing associa tion operating at Caldwell with great success if the farmers expect to reallie something from the county, state and national farm bureaus, they must get behind this great move ment to put the farmer In a position to make good.
