The Community Chest drive is do
ing better this year than for sev
eral just past—the 100 percent idea
seemingly has made a hit. I". M.
Ludlow, chairman of the committee
this year has added fourteen firms
this week to the. two or three listed
last week. ,
The official photographer, sup
posed to get pictures of those firms
which were entitled to display the
100 percent placard, hadf-a misfor
tune with his apparatus and only;
three of the firms were recorded.‘
The first firm over the line, the J.
C. .Penney 00. went through the
tortures of posing twice and‘ still
the picture didn’t turn out good
enough to have a cut made from it.
That’s why the picture of the crew
does not appear in this issue.
However, three of the other firms
did ‘get pictures good enough to

Irrigation Institute is Educational,
RatherThanPolitical Organization
The history of irrigation in the
State of Washington and the history
of the Washington Irrigation Insti
tute make an interesting parallel.
The institute was organised in 1913
by a group of enflmsiastie irriga
tionists of the Yakima valley who
believe that by 1913 this enterprise
had mod to the point where it
deserved the benefits of educatimai
nature that would be possible with‘
an institute. The present officersl
proudly point a» the fact that the‘
institute has always remined an
educational organization, and has
never turned its activities towards!
the political.
E. F. Benson. now deceased, was
selected as the first president in
1913, and served as such for five
years. and is referred to as the
“father" of the institute by its prio
neer members. Most of Washing
wton's best known irrigationists have
served as president or director dur
ing the 28 years of its life, and all
of its presidents have kept the
membership and programs of the
institute at a high level. I
