A. COLE WILL INVESTIGATE INCOMES OF LATAH COUNTY PROPERTY OWNERS W. A. Cole, deputy internal revenue collector for the district of Montana (which includes Idaho) is here today looking up the records of Latah county people in reference to income taxes for 1917-18. He will be here several days, inspecting the records of the county council of defense which has listed the property and incomes of all residents of Latah county. He will also inspect the records and books of the grain buying and shipping firms of Moscow and other Latah county shipping points. Mr. Cole's headquarters are at Pocatello. It is believed by the internal rev enue department that many persons have failed to report their full in comes for the years 1917 and 1918 and a careful investigation is being made. It is reported, on excellent authority, that a revenue inspector from Washington, who visited Mos cow recently, and inspected the wheat record sales of Washington farmers who sold their wheat at Moscow, col lected about $20,000 in income taxes that had not been reported. This sum included interest and penalties on the 1917 taxes. Mr. Cole erpects to re main here several days and make a careful and complete investigation of the incomes of all Latah county prop erty owners and residents for the past two years. ■ COUNTY COMMISSIONER-ELECT WHEAT PROSPECTS FINE SAYS CLARK! - VISITS MOSCOW TODAY EN ROUTE TO HIS FARM "I have never seen a better prospect for fall wheat than we have now in La tah county," said Columbus Clark, pio îieer farmer of Fix ridge, who was elect ed county commissioner for the third t , .- ... district at the recent election. Mr. Clark said. The fall rains have brought, the what up and given it a good start and the mild weather has given it a chance to grow. The prospect is one of the best this section has ever had. Mr. Clark also owns a fine farm north of here and near Palouse, but on the south side of the line. He was enroute to that farm, which he has rented, when he stopped at Moscow today. Mr. Clark says the bean crop in his neighborhood has been harveted and the entire crop saved m good condition. The yield was the best in years. He had 30 acres of white navy beans that yielded 1100 pounds to the acre. At present prices (6 3 t 4 cents) the crop will bring about $74 per acre, Beans were 8 1-2 cents a pound ~ earlier in the season. Mr. Clark says that as high as 1800 pounds per acre was secured by some of the farmers on Fix ridge, and that the corn crop there this year was the best ever known. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.

N AWAKENS INTEREST UNIVERSITY PLANS OTHER GAMES THIS SEASON AFTER FLU BAN IS RAISED Saturday's foot ball victory has stimulated the University of Idaho S. A. T. C. squads to new enthusiasm according to Lieut Lyle J. Meehan, coach. Several old-time stars have reported for action and the squads have been cut down to thirty, Among the new men reporting for practice is Lieut. W. C. Bleamaster, former coach of the university eleven, Lieutenants Hale and Kimball, who have had considerable previous foot ball experience have also donned the mole-skins. "Last Saturday we won the game in spite of the fact that our men did not know football. In two weeks we will put out a team that can give a ' good battle to any eleven in the north west," said Coach Meehan, Next Saturday the Idaho contin gent will play Gonzaga at Spokane and two weeks from Saturday the game will be staged with the Marines, Lieutenant Meehan expects this to be the biggest and hardest game of the year and all efforts are being bent for victory. The advantages of the direct pass or new style of play were demonstrat ed in Saturday's game when it was tried out against the old style used by Gonzaga. Although Idaho lacked team-work, the men showed foot-ball sense. This sense is being developed by the coach. Practice will occur in the morning after this, according to Lieutenant Meehan. Signals will be tried out at night. Arrangements have been made to ; take a large crowd of Idaho rooters to the game with the Marines, a week from Saturday. Special trains will be chartered and the military ( surgeon, Lieutenant Kotalik has j given permission to the team to take along as many men as can be releas ed from service. | EXTEND TIME FOR MAILING I ' j I Information has just been received by the Christmas parcel committee of i jj ed Cross that the time for mail ; n g Christmas parcels has been ex tended to November 30.

On Marie's birth day her mother and herself, along with several other refugees from the threat of the Hun at Soissons, were swarming into cattle cars that were pressed into use in the emergency, when a German Incendiary bomb fell among them, killing her mother and making herself, a noncombatant, go through life a crip [ pie with only one arm.

Several hundred of these tanks led the counter-offensive from the Villers Cotterets forest In July, which marked what appears to have been the turning point of the war. They broke through the enemy's lines, destroying his ma chine guns, overcoming strong centers of resistance and spreading panic and demoralization in the German ranks. Where the Infantry was preceded by the "chars d'assaut," as the French call them, the advance was three miles a day. It was these same French light tanks which preceded the Americans in their advance upon Juvigny and Terny on the Solssons plateau. One of them, manned by a lieutenant, killed more than 200 Germans on the plateau. Documents that have come into the hands of the French staff show that the Germans are greatly worried by the light tanks and are studiously coaching their men In methods of de fense against them. The light cars have the advantage of greater speed and of being • more easily handled than the heavier tanks. They require a crew of only two men, driver and a gunner, and carry one one-and-a-half-inch gun and a machine FEAR FRENCH TANKS Machines Spread Terror in Ranks of Foe.

One has only to see other vegetables of the beet class to be con vinced that our climate and soil are adapted to their successful cultiva tion. The half-mangel, which is half sugar beet, grows to an enormous size and yields several tons to the acre. The sugar beet ought to do equally as well here. The prospect of a continued shortage of sugar ought to start Potlatch people to giv ing this question some careful con sideration. The Press is endeavoring to collect some good general informa tion concerning sugar beets and the manufacture of sugar, and the result of our effort will be published some time in the future. It is possible that we ma y f ' nd that growing sugar beets in quantity would be more profitable than raising all grain or beans. Ev ery farmer is looking for something that will return a profit for his labor. We believe we can show that the sugar beet will fill the bill.-Latah County Press, Sleep and Rest.

STEVENSON." * I The article appeared in The Star Mirror dated Nov. 12, about a certain young farmer living near Moscow kissing the flag in Uniontown. Ev ery fact but one was untrue. That certain young farmer went to Union town on business. When he got there he was in company with two other friends. One certain scaRawag say ing, "Here comes Jacksha, the slack er." He was asked to sing America but he told them he could not sing because he saw the leader was intoxi cated. He and his friends saw him drink and also saw the bottle in his pocket. Then Jacksha was told to kiss the flag which he did and which every patriotic citizen should do. He claimed he was born under the flag; lived under the flag and will die der the flag. This is the flag which redeemed the world from autocracy. This young man was in service of U. S. for three months and received an honorable discharge for agricultural purposes. When he was discharged he was told he was still under mili tary regulations and was subject to call in case of un He is emergency, ready to go any time the military commander thought he is more neces sary for military purposes than agri culture. Another Item appeared in the same article that Uniontown was composed of mostly German people who were all loyal and patriotic people. That is very true, but there is always a few scallawags around Uniontown who always interfere in some one else's business and try to cause trouble. There isn't one out of a hundred of the Uniontown citi zens that approved of his act. So far as a mob was concerned there wasn't any one angry except the young man who insulted the farmer and he was not angry but 'intoxicated. Another error was that the young man's father came to Moscow to have some dental work done but was refused by the local dentist, after offering to pay 'in advance. Whoever brought this ar ticle from Uniontown is nothing but coward or he would have signed his name to the article as most every one does. This article will be printed Genesee, Uniontown, Colton and Spokane papers. JOHN JACKSHA, SR.
