MARKETING OF CERTIFIED SEEDS Growers of certified seed in Vir? ginia, especially those, who are pro? ducing certified soybeans, have real? ized the absolute necessity of co-op? erative etrort in marketing und dis? tributing their seed, An Organiza? tion, such as is now effectively oper? ated in many other states, is need? ed to advertise, market and distri? bute tile certified seed grown by members of the Virginia Crop Im? provement Association. The indi? vidual grower is not in position to either properly advertise seed, ex? cept nt unjustifiable expense, or han? dle inquiries and correspondence. A meeting of the Virginia Crop Improvement Association was held August 10, 1922, during the State Farmers' Institute at Hlncksburg. More than one hundred members of the organization present nt the meet? ing unanimously authorized the Hoard of Directors to adopt a plan for the co-operative marketing of certified Seed and to prepare a con? tract in conformity with the market? ing plan for signature by the asso? ciation and individual seed growers. The Hoard of Directors is now working out the details of a market? ing plan, the main features of whlcn are as follows: (A) The formation of a co-opera? tive, non-profit marketing organiza? tion to be known as the Marketing Department of the Virginia Crop Im? provement Association. (b) The adoption of a three-year contrail through which individual seed growers appoint the Marketing Department tt.-'ir exclusive sales agent for the advertising ami mar? keting of all certified sheds produced by them during the existence of the contract. 1. This contract will provide that the Marketing Department shall sell seed for the grower at the .icst prices obtainable under market ct nditions. 2. The Marketing Department shall make no probt and shall charge a uniform brokerage fee to all grow? ers sufficient only to meet the neces? sary expense of operation. 8. In the event that there is any seed that the Marketing Department is unable to sell at reasonable certi? fied seed prices the contract on that particular lot of seed shall be sus? pended at the discretion of the Hoard of Directors. Each grower under the terms of the contract shall be permitted to retain enough seed for his own use. I. Orders for seed will be prorated by the Marketing Department in pro? portion to the amount of seed pro? duced by each signer of the contract. However, every grower may exercise as much initiative in selling his own seed as he wishes since any orders obtained by individual growers will be filled front their particular lot of seed. Seed growers who are familiar with marketing conditions ami officers of the Crop Improvement Association are convinced that cooperative mar? keting must be undertaken if certi? fied seed produced by members of the association ia to be sold at fair prices, and that the general plan out lined is entirely practicable. Every certified seed grower should sign the Contract and participate in the ben? efits the marketing organization can afford. Members who have certified soybeans to sell particularly need the immediate services of the Marketing Department. It is thought that the marketing organization can advertise ami sell any certified seed on the brokerage not exceeding live or six cents per bushel. The necessary expense of operation will certainly not exceed ten cents per bushel, which is a very low selling cost. No brokerage is chargeable on seed actually sold. Greece has asked the United States to lower the Immigration bars and allow an additional million Greek refugees to enter this coun? try. There can be but one allSWCI to sui h a request. If money ami food and clothing are needed to care for these people America will contribute her share, and probably more, as she has always done in the past.

OR FULL VISIONED Sophie Kerr Underwood, Noted Writer, and Baptist Parson Fail to Agree on What Sort of Love is Best Whether love is blind, one-eyed or full-visiolicd is still a question for international experts. Several New Vork notables tried to solve it recently, but succeeded only in disagreeing. The matter bobbed up in a talk by Rev. Dr. John M. Moore, of Mnr cy Avenue Baptist church, Brooklyn, in which the minister advised the un? appropriated youhg women of his Hock not to marry unless they could annex a hubby with a sense of humor who could hive intelligently. Dr. Moore, asked just what he meant bji "Inteligent love," said: "Love with both eyes open." "Intelligent love," he went oil to explain^ "is to he distinguished from nn-re physical at tract ion. The lat? ter last only n few years, while the former may endure III or all or even more." Nerd Seme of Humor The wideawake love, according to the pastor, makes pals of wedded ones and keeps their minds above purely sexual emotions. The sense of humor, he added, is the first requirement for intellectual romance. "More than half our marriags are spoiled," he said, "because the part? ners take everything too dead seriously. Of course a husband can't go on telling the same jokes at the breakfast table year after year, hut he ought to he able to discuss vital matters with Iiis wife in a friendly, smiling way." Mrs. Sophie Kerr Underwood, writer, was appealed lo. "Intelligent love is entirely un? necessary," she said. "Anyhow, you can't separate it from physical love or compare the two. There are many eases on record where brilliant men have married foolish women and both have been happy. There are other cases where two people have so many points of intellectual con? tact lint there is constant friction." Humor Unnecessary As to the need of a sense of hu? mor, Mrs. Underwood pish-tished the idea. "It all depends on whether hus? band and wife have the sann- appre? ciation of what is funny," she tiillrm ed. "Some women, sensitive to the dramatic ami ridiculous, would soon he bored by h?skyinds who could only play practical jokes. Better have no sense of humor at all than the wrong kind." One other authority was inter? viewed, hut declined to be named. "It is iny opinion," he said, "that if you looked upon love with the eyes of intelligence thcre'd he no mar? riages."

"Mother," he said, "this is my friend, Mr. Specknoodlc," George's mother was rather deaf. "I'm sorry," she said, "but I did not quite catch the name." "My friend, Mr. Specknoodlc,*' shouted George.

GIANT DOG LEADS CAST OF "THE SILENT CALL" A canine star is making Iiis do Init in "The Silent Cnll," ihe Laur? ence Trimble-June Mm I'm produc tiun, presented by Associated First National Pictures, Inc., which is be? ing shown at the Amujtu Theatre Thursday. The ?log shows a canine intelligence that is striking. II. (). Davis has selected tor his story Hal ('?. Kvarls' "The Cross Pull/' which was published in The Saturday Evening Post. The plot deals with Western life around the Nigh Sierras ami calls for a dog in its leading delineation. The producers spent months of investiga? tion searching the foremost kennels of this country and Europe he fore they came upon Strongheart, the Belgian police hound who takes the role of flash in the picture. Klai.h is a cross between dbg and wolf; and the development of the picture shows the two strains in him struggling for mastery. Because human domination becomes intoler? able he breaks his chains ami goes to the mountains where he mates with a blooded wolf. In the end, however, the human instinct of loyalty is too strong to withstand. When he senses that the human beings who claimed his af? fection are in danger, flash returns to the fold in time to effect a thrill? ing rescue. While the police dog, as a distinct novelty in motion pictures calls for unusual attention from audiences, the story is admirably' acted by an all-star cast which includes: John Powers, Knthryn McCuirc, William Dyer, James Mason, Nelson McDow? ell, E. J. Brady and Robert Bolder. ?Adv. $3,000 IS AWAITING MAN LAST HEARD OF IN WEST VA. Clarksburg, W. Va.J Oct. 28.?
