Babson, stat istician and business authority out lines the first opportunity of the com ing period oL' prosperity as follows: "This situation, apparent as we reach the bottom ot' the present area of depression in 1922, offers the first real chance of the coming period of improvement./ Future business is now on the production counter. You can buy it cheaper now than you will be nble to buy it at any tinre during the next four or five years.

Can you picture the trouble, inconveni^ncr!, danger and loss of time that would result if aii ti-3 telephone lines were silent for a single day? The telephone is so reliable that we fume and fret if it falters or is silent for even a few hours. Of all inventions, there is none t!iat gives a person as much pleasure, profit and protection for the money he spends, as the telephone. NORTH DAKOTA INDEPENDENT TELEPHONE CO. How to Have Beautiful Walls THE most economical and satisfactory way is to paint them with Mellotone a flat wall paint made by Lowe Brothers. Mellotone is easily ap plied with a brush. Dries quickly with that soft, dull velvety finish that is so much desired. Using it, you can have a different color scheme in every room, yet all will be in perfect harmony. Mellotone colors are as soft as the tints of the rainbow. Easily cleaned with soap and water. Come in and see the sample panels and ask for literature. KING & SMITH Hope, N. Dak. ^. jr .J immediate returns a.re smaller than usual, but I convinced that the man who has that foresight and cour age will gain ail advantage—a runn ing start—that will carry liini through the coming periods of im provement and prosperity. "Ninteen hundred twenty-two is the year to use the reserve set aside during the fat years. Cut produc tion costs as much as possible, but don't skimp your selling appropria tion during 1922. Defer expansion of plant until next year, but this year—increase your advertising. "Take the aggressive course! There will be considerable business this summer, more the coming fall and winter, more still next year. But the man who goes after it now is the man wlio.wil get it. APRIL 1—CROP REPORT North Dakota's 31 percent of the total rye acreage in the United States came through the winter with an April 1, crop condition of 8S per cent, according the crop report is sued Friday by the U. S. Bureau of Markets and Crop Estimates. This condition 88, is 4- points above the April 1, condition last year, 3 points above the 10_year average, and in the past 7 years has been exceeded only once, in 1917, when the April 1, condition was 89. The report, which also shows an increase in the number of brood sows and a more satisfactory farm labor situation, follows: Rye North Dakota The preliminary estimate of fall sown rye in North Dakota placed the acreage at 1,607,000 or 31 percent of the total fall sown rye acreage in the United States. Rye made an ex cellent fall start and entered the win ter with a December 1, condition of 92 percent. Moderate temperatures in January, when the snow cover was deficient and an ample snow cover during the alternate cold spells that followed were favorable factors. At the end of March, enough snow and frost remained to make the rye cond ition estimate difficult in all parts of the state, reporters generally giving weight to this factor. The April 1, condition is estimated to oe 88 per cent of a normal, compared with 84 percent on April 1, last yea*-and a 10 year average of 85. For April, this condition in past seasons back to 1915 has been exceeded only once in 1917, when it was placed at 89. Rye United States The condition of rye in the United States on April 1, is estimated to be S9.0 percent of a normal, compared with 90.3 percent on April 1, last year, and a 10 year average of 88.B percent. The indicated production for the United States on April 1, is 69,667,000 bushels, compared with the estimate of 57,918,000 bushels on April 1, 1921. Winter Wheat U. S. No report is made on winter wheat in North Dakota. The condition on April 1, for the United States is estimated to be 78.4 percent of a normal compared'with 91.0 'percent last year, and a 10 year average of S4.3 percent. The indicated produc tion on April 1, for the United States is 572,974,000 bushels, compared with the estimate of 587,032,000 bushels on April 1, last year. Brood Sows The number of brood sows in North Dakota on April 1, is estimat ed to be 7 percent more than that of a year ago, and for the United States the number is placed at 11.1 per cent more than that of last year, or 12,424,000. Farm Labor No. Dak. The situation with respect to farm labor in North Dakota is generally more satisfactory that that of a year ago. The supply of farm labor estimated to be 3 percent more than that of a year ago, with the demand placed at i4 percent less. Compared with the normal or 100 percent, the ratio farm labor supply to demand this season in 124 per cent, against 116 percent last year. Financing farm labor again present w&at many reporters believe to be a problem and it is evident that farmers gen erally with the help of their fami lies and by cooperating with their neighbors, will continue to hold their hired labor requirements to a mini mum. Following a state conference of club workers, Harry E. Rilling, State Club Leader, lias announced that boys and girls' club work will be given at the State Fair at Fargo this year and next year all of the work will be at the State Fair at Grand Forks instead of splitting between the two fairs, as has been the custom in the past. The work planned at the Fargo fair this year will include demonstrations by agricultural and home economics teams a junior stock judging con test exhibits of corn and potatoes, gardening, clothing, canning, baking, poultry and pigs. This is the first year that any livestock has been ex hibited by the boys and girls and it is planned to increase this depart ment in the future. DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION PLAN FOR POTATO GROWERS Plans for the organization of a State Potato Development Associa tion, together with endorsement of a proposed new Federal potato grad ing system, were the principal ac complishments at the conference of potato growers of several states call ed at Grand Forks March 3t and April 1 by G. W. Randlett, Director ot the North Dakota Extension Divi sion, and H. J. Hughes, Director of Marketing from Minnesota. The report of a special potato marketing committee of the Agricul tural College w&s given at this meet ing and from this report it was ap parent that the source of cotnplaints made by potato growers last year re garding the price received for their product was the fact in most cases that they had failed to properly pre pare their product for the market. The meeting went on record by a vote of 30 to 24 favoring the estab lishment of three grades of potatoes with tolerances of 6, 12 and 18 per cent respectively to displace the pre sent system which many speakers de clared consisted of one grade for the very nest product and what they de scribed as "a bottomless pit" for the balance of the crop, which they said would include from 85 to 90 percent. Those who favored retention ot pre_ sent grades declared that at least THE HOPE PIONEER J. G. DIAMOND, Jr. Agricultural Statistician CLUB WORK FEATURED AT FAIR THIS YEAR three-fourths'of the crop of the state could be graded to come into the No. class and that in the long run the retention of presention grades would be most beneficial to growers. A committee of seven was appoint ed to arrange for a second meeting on or about June 10th, at which time consolidation of existing state organ izations is planned and efforts will be made to recommend specific mar keting agencies for farmers to use in selling their 1922 potato crop. Memebers of this committee include George H. Hoople of Hoople A. M. Peterson, Hunter I. M. Rasmusson, Doyon A. J. Mclnnes, Dasey, H. L. Finke, Berthold, and G. P. Wolf and N. D.

COMMITTEE REPORT The committe appointed on March 15th 1922 to investigate into the matter of safeguarding county records submitted a report as follows: "The undersigned, wish to report to the Board of County Commissioners, as follows: There are 16 safes on the 2nd floors of the Fire Hall and First National Bank building, two of which are very heavy and made of steel, cast iron and concrete. The safes are located as follows: Second Floor Fire Hall 2 Heavy old style safes 4 Steel safes, bearing Underwriters label. 5 Light steel safes First National Bank Building 5 Light steel safes Nearly all the storage space in afore said safes is exhausted. It is our opinion that the records with in the safes are properly safeguar.ed against any ordinary Are which might occur in either building where they are kept but in cases of Are it is probable that safes would fall through the wood floors and unto the first floors. There is a cistern under the entire first floor of the Fire Hall. It is doubtful if the floor would hold in case the safes with contents were to fall. This cistern, at nearly all times, is full of water, and should the safes fall into the water, thru Hope rZIZfZIZIHJRIZfZJZfZIZI2f2fZIZIZJZfHf2IZI2IHiaiZJZrZIZIZIZI2IZI2IZI2JZI2IZI2IZri Every Meal Every Day All the Year Round for the smallest or largest family The Hottest, Quickest, Cleanest, Cooking Flame Produced by any Oil Stove 1-2-3-4 or 5 Burners The housewife who pre pares food for a sturdy family needs a NEW PERFECTION OIL RANGE OR STOVE Sold exclusively by KING & SMITH Hardware Dealers Hope, N.
