Anderson, Lewis County Chairman Victory Loan Drive.—Fixing- for Start 21st. Henry G. Anderson, deputy postmaster at Nezperee, has been appointed chairman for Lewis county of the Victory Loan drive and spent the later part of last week in conference at Boise with State Chairman Flynn and all but two of the other county chairmen of the state. It is reckoned the Victory Loan will be a six billion dollar issue—or the same as the last Liberty Loan—and the date of the starting of the drive has been definatelv set for April 21. The general impression of the Boise conference was that the Loan will he put over in Idaho with a good margin to go on. Reckoning on the six billion dollar basis, Lewis county's quota will again be $250,000. She passed this quota on the last Loan by $65,000. Mr. Anderson has not yet nam ed his district chairmen, but has drawn about him an advisory council composed of P. W. Mitch ell, L. N. Swift, G. C. Pennell, Ernst Wienss and A. E.

It is understood that Vollmer eon templates making this a general gala day. and will provide a gen eral program of music, oratory and sports for the entertainment of the big gathering anticipated before tbe arrival and after the departure of the train.
