COUNTY AGENT MONROE TALKS
M. O. Monroe, Bingham county
agent stated Wednesday evening
that they have 1200 members for the
farm bureau and that seems to be
about 66 per cent of the farmers In
the county altho nobody knows ex
actly how many farms there are in
iVI r. Monroe says that one of the
important problems he is dealing
with now is the purchase and dis
^_Ltrtbution 0 f strychnine for use in
fighting rodents. It is expected that
the county will appropriate some
money to apply on the purchase of
strychnine, but the farmers will
have to put up the rest. An effbrt has
been made to secure 2000 ounces
for use just as the winter breaks up
In order to kill the old stock before
the little squirrels arrive. It is not
considered a success to try to kill
them oif after there is plenty of vegi
tation fey them to feed upon as they
will leave the poison and feed upon
the tender herbs.
In localities where only part of
the settlers are willing to enter Into
the (poisoning campaign 'an effort
will be made by the farm bureau to
get them interested and working In
a united campain. The man who
neglects or refuses to help is just as
much of a slacker as those who did
not help to win the war, for he sets
I the efforts of his neighbors at naght.
Heretofore the state itself has been
'a slacker because it did not help kill
the squirrels on state land adjoin
ing the settlers' farms. An effort is
being made now to get the state to
do Its part and get every settler to
co-operate In the big spring drive to
kill the squirrels,
Mr. Monroe says the worst trouble
he sees in the plan now is that people
are not buying sufficient quantity
of strychnine. He is afraid they will
not have enoughjto complete the job.
