HOLD YOUR RANCH
We who know of the vast resources hidden within
the State of Idaho's soil, or have seen the poor man
come out of the east and become independently weal
thy within a short time thru the fertility of its lands,
have never doubted but the future w r ould find us citi
zens of the commanding agricultural as well as min
ing states of the union.
And these post-war da 3 *s of re-construction mean
the realization of our golden dreams. There is a deep
significance in the statement of an army officer who
returned to his home the other day when he says:
"Hundreds of men in our cam]) came to me when the}
heard I was from Idaho. They wanted to locate
here. They asked me about the possibilities of the
country; its resources; its climate, and its people. An
Idaho booster and lover, I told them the truth. The 3 '
are coming thousands strong. They will bring brawn
brain, training and in some instances, monc 3 \ They
will attract—as they accomplish things—eastern cap
ital. Land already worked will jncrease in value.
Deeded land will have a market and material wealth
will be increased in the state with the increase in pro
duction." Thousands of acres of now idle land will
be taken up. Cities will grow and towns will flour
ish. Factories will come, attracted by a market and'
power made by the mighty streams of the state. It's
a rosy picture, but a true one and we therefore urge
you to hold onto your ranches.
