OFFICERS CHOSEN I : FOR THE RED CROSS 1 Dean Roach Explains:the Work Out lined for Coining Year hy the Na tional Organization The board of directors of the local Red Cross met last Friday tor the purpose of making plans for the com- ! Ing year, and for the election of of ficers. Dean Beach, having attended the ( meeting in Spokane "at which time I the national chairman of the Red : Cross, Dr. Livingston Farrand, was present, gave a report of the peace ■ program of the Red Cross as outlined i by Dr. Far rand. The three most j vital points of the new program were especially emphasised by Dean Beach. ; First, the great need of Europe today for clothing and for medical ; supplies. In order to supply these ( needs it will be necessary for the Red Cross to make and ship large i numbers of garments during the ; winter. i Second, the continuance and mak- 1 ing permanent of the home service i branch of the Red Cross. The origi- i nal work of this branch was to meet the problems of the families of men in service and to help returned men. Since all problems of suffering are < regularly with us, and must be met, | the work of the home service will , i be along this line, helping all fain-, ilies. The.scope of this work will be left to the community. The third and biggest work of the Red Cross is to be the health center programs. The previous work of the Rod Cross in the prevention of tu- 1 berculosis was pointed out and the - now plans for the prevention of tv- L berculosis and other diseases were i outlined, a health center for meet- | ing these problems being strongly * urged by the Red Cross. Dean Beach empnasised the fact, that the Red Cress was not an ehier- H gency agent to act during the war, 1 as many persons seem to think, but < a permanent organization with def-h mite work to do. . i The probable re-occurence of the influenza was discussed as a local l problem, the matter being left to the committee on civilian relief. The following officers -were elect ed: Chairman—Mrs. George Ewing. Vice chairman—Mrs. Pfeiffer. I Secretary— Mrs. Lester Folger. Treasurer—A. R. Met/ Home service secretary —Mrs. P. ' F. Potter. Chairman of the committee on civ ilian relief— Win Goodyear. The chairman appointed the fol lowing persons to serve as p. board of directors: Mrs. E. W. Downen. Mrs". Thos. Neill. Dean Beach, Mr. Pinkley, Dr. Kimzey, Mr. Allen, Mr. Forrest and Mr. Slagle.

M I.I.MAN RECEIVES CHINESE PHEASANTS >o/.eu Game Birds Sent Here for Liberation —Open Game Season Still Unsettled K. W. Carter, deputy county game rarden for the Pullman district, Sat rday received 12 young Chinese iheasants for planting in this com- QUnlty. The birds are thought to >(. too young for liberation and will >c kept in captivity by Mr. Carter intll they are old enough to take are of themselves, when they will e( liberated. Fifty of the game birds .re assigned to Whitman county by he state game warden, coming from he Walla Walla game farm, and the 'ullman quota was sent here by the ounty game commission. There is much uncertainty here as o the open season on quail and Hun garian partridges this year. The ■ounty game commission declared an •pen season on the birds for the first .wo weeks in November but this ac ton was declare*! invalid by the state name warden in a recent ruling. In tome counties, where the same con lition prevailed, the county game warden has permitted the hunting >f the' game birds in question, assur ng the sportsmen that no arrests will i" made.

Bam* An interesting disc USßion 0 . „ feting of the grain grower,** Inland Empire with Julius up wheat director and president V* United States Grain c^ r J^' Saturday in Spokane, wai rore the meeting of the e £^ commerce Tuesday by Dean E « Johnson of the college of agriculJ it the State College. Dean j oh * outlined some pf the fe*g» -he farmers, as registered at the Zl ing. and remarked that the meZ was one of much value to the IS « of the wheat producing *" on. and one of the most helpful ' -ions ever held in the state. From the time of the establishment it the grain corporation there had been much criticism by the farm*, one of the foremost objections beine against the government grades th growers contending that the grades established were not sufficiently ela. tic and made possible profiteering by the millers and elevator men The farmers argued before Director Barns that there has been too much No. 2 wheat sold in comparison with No. 1, and intimations were rife that some millers and elevator men" had mixed the two grades to secure a No. 1 rating on the entire lot, the mix ture resulting In their own profit a"nd netting nothing to the farmer. Claims were also made that there is too great a dlfferentatlon in the pri.ee between No. 1 and No. 2 wheat the established differential . bein: three cents. The farmers suggested that the difference in price be fixed a*, one cent on pound basis with a re duction of one cent per pound per bushel from the standard weight for all underweight wheat. The sugges tion, according to Dean Johnson, wis received quite favorably by Director Barnes, and possibilities for favorable consideration of the proposal are not remote. Another specific grievance of the fanner was noted in which the farm er himself was id error, due to an erroneous impression of the real con ditions. The farmers contended that a bushel of wheat weighing 56 or 51 j pounds would make as much flourm J a bushel of 60 pounds, standard j weight. This is net true and tbe farmers were set right on the Ques tion by the director. The farmers criticized the grain corporation for attempting to male the minimum price established the maximum price. Director Barnes ad mitted that this v was done, and that it was the Intention at the outset to follow this course during the war. With the signing of the armistice, however, certain grades of wheat went above the set price, and today hard wheat brings considerably mora than the minimum set by the govern ment. Dr. F. F. Nalder also discussed the Spokane meeting, from an education al point of view, and in concludine urged the value and need of a con tinuous campaign of education amom us all. PROF. C. W.
