To Whom ll: '
May Congern:
On April 24, 1939, I‘piantea 1% tons of home grown, second
year seed on 3.3 acres of ground. The previous year. I had
raised potatoes on half of the ground and they were so infested
with wire worms that the returns were very small.
They ran 1-3 No. I’s, 1-3 No. 2’s and 1-3 culls.
This year when I planted the potatoes in this ground, I put
one ton of marl to each acre of ground and found that the wire
worms did not bother to any extent. On August 20th. 1939, I dug
this patch of} potatoes and the returns was much better. I took
nine truck loads or 40 tons offof the 3.3 acres of ground.
Thruout the patch they averaged 70% No. I’s.
As you can well see Marl is of great help to any potato farm
er who is bothered with wire worms. I highly recommend Marl to
anyone who is bothered with these pests. Being the first to try
this new experiment in this locality on potatoes, 1 will be glad
to give any further information which might be desired by an!-
one reading this letter.
Name of this wer furnished on request; also endorsement
by growers of aspgaxgus, sugar beets, grapes, hops, onions, tree
fruit and alfalfa.

Tom Swayze, Tacoma City Comp
troller, says the Tacoma Civil Ser
vice Bulletin, has just been paid a
rare compliment by local politicians.
As a result he faces the primary
election unopposed. So very seldom
does such a situation arise that it
is almost good enough for Ripley’s
Believe It or Not Column. The fact
that no local politician has filed
against Tom, however, was no sur
prise to those who know and love
him best. Tom Swayze has earned
his enviable position. During his
many years as Tacoma’s City Con
troller, the Tacoma public has learn- ‘
ed to depend upon Mr. Swayze, fog
they found that he not only did his;
best, but his best was excellent.
Comptroller Swayze has been a
good City Comptroller, a public of
ficial that voters dream about elect
ing. but seldom find running for
public office. 01’ course, he is not
perfect, for all of us are human:
but Tacoma’s City Comptroller is
right so much of the time that many
of us fail to remember the times he
might have been wrong. And so to
