Resident and taxpayer in Benton County 38
years; wheat - fruit farmer; charter member
Locust Grove Grange; in business 19 years;
Mayor of the City of Kennewick 10 years.
In my campaign for the republican nomina
tion for the office of county commissioner from
this district, I have been asked several times
concerning the employment of road crews, etc.
This is particularly true as regards the job now
held by L. M. Keene.
In the event- of my election I have made ar
rangements for continuation of Mr. Kenne’s
employment. In addition, I have .secured- the
promised services of a .former county employee.
—Mr. Elmer O'lson, as foreman of the rock
crushing equipment. In this combination I feel
that the greatest efficiency for the district and
county can be secured.

‘ Commissioner
County Agenl's
by Walter L. Click
To top the list of interesting
items this week is a statement
about the most important crop
grown in Benton county, or in any
county or community. This crop is
our youth—the youngsters, boys
and girls, who within a few years
will be the men and women citi
zens of our nation. I wondered
what we are doing for them, to
them, or with them. Wartime
makes youth have new positions,
new responsibilities, new concep
tions of true values. I wonder if
we are giving maximum effort to
leadership and guidance of this
most important crop?
Four-H club work is an excellent
way for boys and girls to be guid
ed. Learning to do by doing is a
good motto, and when boys and
girls learn by doing and do useful
and purposeful work, they grow,
expand and become useful and
’productive men and women. If
you would like to know more of
4-H club work for your commun
ity, would you please contact your
county agent’s office.
You agent last week mentioned
an instructive meeting on soil
classification and land use held
at. Yakima recently and here is
something more along the same
line, which concerns the returning
veteran, the defense workers or
others interested in “settling on
the land.” '
When “Johnny” comes marching
home and decides he would like to
settle on a farm he will be able to
get sound advice on local farming
conditions from veterans’ advisory
committees on agriculture now be
ing set up by county extension
agents in each county in the state.
n‘These committees will be made
up of experienced farmers, busi-
ness men and representatives of
state and federal agricultural ag
ncies,” ,we are told by R. M. Turn
;er, assistant director at the State
College of Washington.
“They will have information on
types of land needed for different
kinds of farming, the amount of
capital required, size and type of
an economic unit, suggestions for
credit facilities, and many other}
tips to help make the venture a!
success,” Turner declared.
County agents and committee
members have already been given
a special training course to help‘
answer questions of prospective‘
settlers. This course, largely car
ried on in the field at seven dis
trict conferences stressed soil types
and latest farm management in
formation. ‘
In field trips the agents learned
how to classify land by consid
ering soil capacity ’and soil sam
ples, and prosperity of the farm
over a long period as indicatéd
by surveys. The capital invest
ment in buildings, condition of
livestock, machinery and general
upkeep of the farm are also care
fully considered.
' The ability to diversify or the
alternate opportunities a farm of
fers like dairying, growing truck
crops, seeds and other cash crops
were stressed as important in suc
cessful farming. Market oppor
tunities, size of the farm, tax de
linquencies, relief loads, farm
records, and ability of the oper
ator to secure credit were shown
as important for the committee to
consider in giving advice to pros
lpective settlers. Soil survey maps
outlining the classes of soil from
‘one to five, have already been
made for five western Washing
‘ton counties and many other coun
,ties will have them soon.
' Prospective farmers not ac
quainted with local practices will
be urged to take short courses at
the college, and to work on fanns
awhile before locating. Others
with only limited capital will be
advised to rent a good farm rather
‘then buy a poor one.
‘ A new bulletin “Suggestions to
Prospective Farmers” has just
been released to give information
on what to look for in locating’a
farm in Washington state. Copies
can be obtained from county ex
tension agents.
I Dairying has a big future in this
Istate and in Benton County it
l'dairymen are prepared to meet
the changing conditions of the post
bwarperiod, predicts M. B. Nichols.
Extension dairyman at the State
‘College of Washington. He be
‘lieves the Pacific Northwest has
an ideal climate for dairying and
*some of the nation’s finest herd
However, it seems logical to ex
pect a surplusgof dairy products
after the war, since we have more,
dairy cows and heifers on farms
in the United States now than ever
before, Nichols said. ‘
1 “The dairyman’s problem, then,"
Nichols went on to say, “is being
ready to meet any change in" con
ditions. He can best do this by

Feeding maist mash to chickens
involves extra labor and presents
the danger of harmful mold and
bacterial growth. It is not neces
sary in order to main egg pro--
duction either.
In emergencies, moist mash may
be fed to help maintain an ade
quate mash consumption. Sick
ness, extreme cold, disrupted
schedule, or moving the birds often
means that mash consumption
If moist mash is fed. it is sug
gested that mixing it with water
or liquid skimmilk, just so it is
crumbly is satisfactory. Feeding
what the birds will clean up in 15
to 20 minutes is usually enough.
The board of education of San
Gabriel. California. was presented
with a petition recently asking that
progressive education be discon
tinued and that reading, writing,
arithmetic and spelling be taught
in the grades five days a week.
In higher grades it was asked that
U. S. history and geography be
taught. The petition aslo asked
that color( work and projects he
used only as a reward for good
work done.
