Coverdale of the American Farm Bureau Federation. The object of the Farm Bureau is to create a county-wide agricultural organization to advance and improve the agriculture of the country; to co-operate with the State College of Agriculture and the U. S. Depart ment of Agriculture in the employ ment of county agents; to develop a definite program of work that will bring to the county a better econo mic, social and educational condi tion so as to make farming more profitable and country life more at tractive. The Farm Bureau represents ev ery community of the county by pro viding for a director from each township op its board of directors, and for a local group in every com munity—if one does not already ex ist—through which it can work. The farm Bureau represents all agricultural interests in that it s of ficers include individuals engaged in all of the general and specialized lines Of farming. Urges Co-Operation. The Farm Bureau does not aim to replace any other organization as it includes among its membership re presentatives of all farmers' organi zations. The Farm Bureau encour ages community organization and co-operation. The Farm Bureau is not a politi cal organization, believing that more lean be accomplished in safe guarding and promoting agricultur al interests most vital to the wel fare of the entire county, state, and nation by the united action of all concerned on measures of common interest, regardless of factional or political differences. The American Farm Bureau Fed eration depends for its strength up on the united support of the farm people in the 1500 .counties of the 46 co-operating state federations. The County Farm Bureau will help you solve the prolblema of the county that stand for a better coun ty and that you, as an Individual, know should be solved. In unity there is strength, and the Farm Bu rea£i will he as strong as the people whit back it make it. ■y State Farm Bureau Fédéra^ tion is just an enlargement of the county unit to do the thing that the county as an individual cannot do; where several counties or the entire state is affected it takes or ganization to do the job. The American Farm Bureau Fed eration is no stronger than its com ponent parts. It needs your help if it is to continue to function prop erly. It bases its program of ac tion upon a thorough study of its problems, and has provided depart ments of administration, organiza tion, finance, marketing, researdh, information, transportation, legis lation, and legal counsel, and has employed the best trained men that the country ha s to take charge of the work. It maintains a daily point of contact with the different research organizations of the coun try and with the state and federal agencies in studying agricultural conditions. It holds conferences with .organizations of all kinds In order that it may study their prob lems and at the same time present to tihem the true situation of agri culture. Join, if you are a farmer, because the Farm Bureau needs you and you need the Farm Bureau. FARM BUREAU NEWS. Letter Regarding Clover Seed In dustry. Mr. W. F. Thomas, Blackfoot, Idaho. Dear Sir:—Replying to yours of the 4th inst., I wish to state that tihe past year, 1921, is the extent off my experience raising clover seed In Bingham County. However, I tried for three consecutive years before being successful in getting a stand. The first year I put my seed too deep in the ground, consequently it never came out. The second year wag the dry year (1919) and .it Icame up and I had a beautiful stand, tout with insufficient water through the summer it died. This last season, off a measured field of 18 acres I threshed 180 bushels and 15 pounds of Algike and it cleaned away 4 per cent. I received 16 cents per pound in the fall. Off a measured field of 10 acres I threshed 91 bushel s of red clover and this cleaned away 14 per (cent. I received 16 cents per pound for this and the purchaser, Mr. Nictool sen, of the Michigan Farm Bureau, was very complimentary on the pur ity and quality. My clover is all on ground that is very flat and of a deep volcanic ash. However, I do 'not think this is re quisite, but it is easier to get a stand on flat than rolling land. Also eas ier on deep than shallow soils as they hold moisture better. I seed my clover with barley which I have found to be the best nurse crop, and after starting to irrigate I never let it go more than 10 days without ir rigating until cool weather starts in the fall. My experience in Twin Falls county convinced me that it seldom pays to leave clover for seed for more than two years, a s it gets too foul. A great many who raise Al sike there leave it for seed two years and then plow it up and put in grain the'- following year. They generally get a volunteer stand of Alsike with the grain. I think a good system of rotation of either red or Alsike Is two crops of seed, one of potatoes or beets and one of barley, seeded very thin, not more than 50 pounds per acre as a nurse crop for the clover. 1 put about 10 pound., of Red Clover per acre and about 6 pounds of Alsike. The Alsike I never pasture. The Red clover I pasture off not later than June 1st with sheep. j Get Your New Hoover Before Spring House Cleaning Time » Why turn tlie house upside down twice a year when house cleaning time comes around?

ELECTRIC SHOP IDAHO POWER COMPANY m It Beats as J l Sweeps as if CJeans m po The Red clover chaff is excellent feed and has considerable value as such, but the Alsike is not so good. I think the industry should be encouraged and deserves a place alongside of Grimm. However, we must ibe very careful if we raise dif ferent kinds of seed on the same farm or we will giet our fleld 8 mix ed. For instance, I never haul clo ver chaff across a field of Grimm and visa versa. We must be very careful in every manner about getting seed from one kind scattered over another. We also cannot be too careful about letting any kind of noxious or objectionable weeds go to seed along our ditch banks and fence lines. If I can give you any further in formation to promote the industry I shall be pleased to do so. Very truly yours, T. S. V ANDERFORD, Aberdeen, Idaho. AMERICAN FARM BUREAU FEDERATION NEWS Livestock Men to Start Work at Once In tihe Chicago meeting last week the Board of Directors of the Na tional Live Stock Producers' Asso ciation, decided to begin work at once in establishing co-operative live stock commission associations at Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Buffalo and Pittsburg, and to! seek arrangements with farmers' co-oper j ative commission companies already established at other markets where by all will unite under the national plan. The following telegram was dis patched to Milo Reno, Chairman of the American Co-operative Congress in session in Des Moines, Iowa: "The National Live Stock Produc ers' Association, through its Board of Directors in session in Chicago, expresses ttoe hope that your 'con ference will co-operate in an effort to create and make effective a Na tional Co-operative Live Stock Mar keting Plan toy uniting cur activi ties with the thought of using ex isting Co-operative Terminal Mar keting Agencies and creating others whenever and wherever advisable. Illiteracy Considered. Secretary J. W. Coverdale, of the American Farm Bureau Federation, will ibe in consultation with repre sentatives of the National Educa tional Association in Chicago on February 27-28, on the problem of illiteracy among rural people. The latest figures show that there are In the United State s 4,931,905 illi terates—persons over 10 years of age unable to write in any language«. Most otf tihese unfortunates have had no schooling whatever. Sec retary Coverdale declared that the Farm Bureau will exert all its power and influence to see that edu. catlonal advantages are made avail able to every person in America. The Farm Bureau in the Capitol. Because the charge has been made that tlie fertilizer industry i s con trolled by a combination of corpora tions which either as individual members or collectively has employ ed attorneys and lobbyists to influ ence Congress against the accept ance of Henry Ford's offer to 'buy Muscle Shoals for the purpose of manufacturing fertilizer and otner nitrates. Senator Kenneth McKeller. of Tennessee, ho- introduced a reso lution asking that the suh-tcomimit tee of Agriculture and Forestry in vestigate the charges made. That Henry Ford will undertake the additional development of wat erpower on the upper Tennessee ri ver was the opinion expressed be fore the House Military Affairs Committee by J. W. Worthington, representative of the Tennessee Riv er Improvement Association. Mr. Worthingiton estimated that 1,000, 000 more horsepower could be pro duced In addition to the 750,000 de veloped at Muscle Shoals. Hearings on the Ford offer are progressing slowly and the entire committee may visit the project before taking final action on the hid. "Henry Ford will manufacture a minimum of 110,000 tons ojf am monium nitrate, which Is approxi mately 200,000 tons of ammonium sulphate, and if successful, in all probability will double the capacity of the plan," stated W. B. Mayo, Chief engineer of the Ford Motor Company, when testifying before the committee. Mr. Mayo stated that "as the demand for the con sumption of fertilizer Increases, in all probability Mr. Ford will keep abreast of this demand so that he will always control at least one fifth of the total amount consumed on the farms of America today.'' He further stated that after six months study Mr. Ford is willing to state that almost without doubt he will be able to lower the price of ferti lizers one-third and possibly cut them in half.
