That 84 % of the men students at

thirds of their money, and a like
number who must do the same dur
ing the college year. Some 13%
earned half their funds and 14% are

State College to Give 73
Days of Instruction to
Local Farmers
Due to the fact that Stevens coun
ty, speaking through its board of
county commissioners, has seen fit
since 1916 to maintain a county
agent, it has had the benefit every
year of the services of a corps of
twelve to fourteen highly trained ag
ricultural specialists in the employ
of the extension service of the Uni
ted States department of agriculture
and the State college of Washing
ton. Last year this service totaled
110 full days of time.
This year, for the sake of econ
omy, the allowance of specialists'
time has been cut to 75 days for
Stevens county. It is felt that by
better organizing and systematizing
the work more, that as much if not
more can be accomplished, notwith
standing the shorter period allowed.
To accomplish this end it is hoped
to get the assistance of the farmers
of the county in a more intensive
and efficient way than ever before.
Only problems of the most vital
nature to the agriculture of the
county will receive attention.
During the last year, due to the
fact that Stevens county has had
the assistance of these specialists,
some things of far-reaching impor
tance have been brought to the
county. A good example of this is
the new copper carbonate dry treat
ment of seed wheat to prevent rust.
To give better service is the am
bition of the extension service of
the State college of Washington.
Ways and means of accomplishing
this end was the subject of a five
day conference just held at head
quarters, methods being the only
subject under discussion, except for
the subject of marketing, which is
deemed fundamental and of far reach
ing importance at this time. The
discussions were led by the special
ists in the respective lines, assisted
by county agents who had been es
pecially successful in putting over
the line of work under consideration.
The following are suggestive of the
subjects embraced. Farm manage
ment, soils and crops projects, live
stock projects, dairying, horticulture,
plant pathology, bees, foods and nu
trition, clothing, and home manage
ment. The subject of marketing re
ceived especial treatment by Pro
fessor F. E. Dummier, of the eco
nomic department of the college.
"As a result of the intensive dis
cussion of the various subjects each
county agent went back to his re-
On Christmas Day, more than at any |
other time during the whole year, do
we realize the truth of the centuries
old teaching that it is more blessed to
give than to receive.
It is the joy of giving, rather than the
pleasure of receiving, which makes
this the best holiday of them all.
And in business, the spirit of giving j
means just one thing—service.

it is our privilege to serve every
month of the twelve, we desire at this
time to express our appreciation of

Seed Potatoes Must Be
Kept Free from Frost
Hundreds of bushels of potatoes
are lost annually in the state by
frost injury. At this time when po
tatoes are more or less at rock bot
tom on the market, it would seem
that little attention should be paid
to frosted potatoes, yet seed for
next year must be preserved in
good shape.
A thoroughly frozen potato col
lapses into a watery mass which rep
resents the extreme type of frost in
jury. Various other types of injury
are often mistaken for diseases.
"The actively growing portion of
the potato, and the stem end are
more likely to freeze than the water
tisue and the eye end of the potato,"
asserts George L. Zundel, extension
plant disease specialist. "Individual
potatoes vary in the manner in which
they may become frosted.
"In many cases where potatoes
have been lightly frozen, there is
no external symptom and the po
tatoes are thought to be in proper
condition for. marketing purposes.
When these potatoes are cut open,
there is a browning of the tissues.
"Wilted potatoes freeze as readily
as unwilted ones. Potatoes with a
high sugar content freeze at a
slightly lower temperature. The
sweetening of potatoes which is of
ten but incorrectly attributed to
freezing, is caused by long storage
at low temperature, much above the
point of frost injury.
"When the potato is allowed to
sprout, the potato itself freezes
more easily than the sprout. Slightly
frosted potatoes are almost useless
as seed, as the potato piece decays
before the young plant can form
roots, but if plants form they grow
more slowly and produce a good
crop. Seed potatoes stored at 82
degrees F. do not produce as good
a crop as when stored at 50 degrees
Postoffice Will Exchange
the War Savings Stamps
During the war the government
offered war savings stamps, paying
4.27% as a method oi saving for
people of small means. Since the
war, and to take the place of war
savings stamps, the government of
fered treasury saving certificates in
denominations of $25, $100 and $1000,
now sold to investors at $20.50, $82
and $820, respectively. They pay
4% if held until maturity, five years
from the date of issue About $625,
--000,000 of war savings stamps, series
of 1918, become due January 1, 1923,
and the government now offers to
issue treasury savings certificates in
exchange for them, affording the
owners an opportunity to continue
a .safe investment with good inter
est ,
Savings has furnished the life
blood for many nations and insures
prosperity to the people. The gov
ernment is doing everything possible
to encourage saving in the United
States by offering sound and attrar
tive securities for the investment of
small sums. If you want to save,
and insure your future, it would pay
you to investigate Uncle Sam's sav
ings system.
