IK DRIVE US USUAL
CITY MUST DO MUCH WORK TO
RAISE ITS QUOTA OF WAR
A rush of war- savings stamp buyers
is reported at every postoffice in Latah
county and there are strong hopes now
that the county, which has been far be
hind in its quota, will "go over the top"
before New Year's day. Despite the in
fluenza epidemic which has hurt both
the Red Cross and the War Savings
drives, many communities have re
Genesee announced by telephone to
day that she is "well over the top with
more than $35,000 worth of war savings
and thrift stamps sold." Her quota could
not be learned, but she has gone far be
yond her quota.
Juliaetta was the first town in the
county to report her entire quota taken.
Potlatch, Deary and Bovill report heavy
sales and a big drive to start the day
after Christmas. Troy expects to reach
her quota tomorrow and Viola and other
smaller places report that their quotas
will be reached before the end of the
Heavy sales of the stamps are being
made at .Moscow's postoffice,
been almost impossible to get to the
stamp window without having to wait
from 10 minutes to half an hour, long
lines of people being before the win
dow from opening to closing hours
Saturday and today. Postmaster
Morgareidge says he is too busy selling
stamps to make a report but he is con
fident that Moscow will reach her
quota this month and that the county's
quota of $360.000 will be taken.
The Red Cross drive is going forward
well, despite the influenza epidemic
which has hindered the work in every lo
cality. Moscow will have over 2000
members tonight and Chairman Simp
son says the county will go well
4000 members. All outside points that
have reported have sent good reports of
progress made but Mr. Simpson thinks
it will be a week before the final reports
are in from all parts of the county.
Moscow had 1945 members Saturday
night when work ceased. Today many
farmers are in town and most of them
are joining the Red Cross.
Nez Perce county, of which Lewiston
is the county seat, has taken its full
quota of war savings stamps and is
"over the top." Judge W. F. Morgar

WARN I. W. W. AGITATORS THAT
DISLOYALTY WILL NOT BE
Following the speech of George
Vanderveer, the I. W. W. attorney
Chicago, at a socialist meeting at 309
Sprague avenue, last night, some 60
soldiers and sailors, home on fur
lough, all in uniform, entered the
hall, drove out those still lingering
to speak to Mr. Vanderveer, turned
out the lights and announced through
their leader :

Wonsan Upbraids Soldier.
"Send for the. police," insistently
suggested one of those present, .but
no one took his counsel and no one
else offered resistance by word or
act, filing out silently, except one slight
woman who sputtered her indignation,
saying. "The beasts; Uncle Sam has
been teaching them something." Out
side, she addressed her remarks to one
the soldiers, who started to argue
with her. "Come on, let the lady
alone," shouted a half dozen of his com
rades, to which he replied, "I wasn't
arguing. I was just explaining to her."
Soldiers Scatter Crowd.
Having accomplished their purpose
the soldiers and sailors promptly left.
Later seeing that about 50 of the crowd
remained outside the hall, discussing
their eviction, the boys returned and
Two returned soldiers in civilian uni
forms were present during the early
part of Vanderveer's talk, others of the
soldiers explained. Disliking his ad
herence to the bolsheviki of Russia and
attitude toward the United States,
they immediately went out, passing the
word as to what was going on and they
quickly had a large sized following.
They also said the speaker declared his
pleasure to speak here without police

Answering a question as to the man
ner of defenses of the I. W. W. on trial
at Sacramento, Vanderveer said he was
too much of an attorney and consequent
iy reactionary in his views, to view with
favor any defense that did not avail it
self to the fullest extent of the technic
alities of the law. By so doing, he boast
cd, that here in Spokane he had been
able to free 100 I. W. W. from the
clutches of the immigration department.

CORN WILL PAY HERE
BETTER THAN ROOT CROPS
(Continued from page 1)
lars to the acre.
If comparisons in tho yield of the
two crops are made and we suppose
that an average yield of seven tons
of beets be secured each year, we can
safely figure that the corn crop will
average a like yield of silage. The
Great Western Sugar Refining com
pany shows that the average yields
of beets in northern Colorado under
irrigation from 1911-15 was only
12.4 tons, so that seven tons would
be very high under conditions in
When the yield of these two crops
is placed on the basis of dry matter,
seven tons of beets would amount to
about 1.75 tons of dry matter and
5.25 tons of tops would contain about
three-fourths of a ton of dry matter,
making a total of 2.6 tons of dry mat
ter from the entire beet crop. A
yield of seven tons of com silage hav
ing a fair percentage of ears would
produce approximately 36 per cent of
drv matter, or a total of 2.46 tona.
When based on dry matter produced,
if the beet tpps were «Iso untiliaed
for feed the yield from the two
would be nearly the* same.
There is little question but that the
farmer would prefer to grow corn,
when the yield of dry matter was
equal to that from beets; the cost of
production less, and the ease of hand
ling the crop ip favor of the com.
When we compare the acreage which
could be handled by the stock farmer,
the corn crop would still be favored.
The last question is that of the
yield of wheat following the two
crops. If the com were used for
silage, and it should be grown for
that purpose on the stock farm, the
crop could be removed from the field
from two to three weeks before the
beets would be ready to harvest.
There is little question but that the
beets leave the soil in excellent
dition, but the same is true with
ground if well cultivated during the
summer. The remaining com stalks
could be disked under and the crop
planted, and even if left standing
would aid in preventing winterkilling
of the wheat. If the corn were de
sired as a grain crop, the wheat
could be drilled between the rows with -
a one horsé drill as is commonly
practiced in many of the corn-belt
According to experiments, conducted
by the United States department of
agriculture at Akron, Colorado, sugar
beets required 377 pounds of water to
produce 1 pound of dry matter, while
corn only required 369 pounds to pro
duce the same amount of dry matter.
Thus, the com crop would remove less
water from the soil and consequently,
more should be available to the wheat
Some question may be raised as to
the possibility of growing corn in
Idaho, but there is little doubt as to
its success, provided the varieties or
strains are adapted to the climatic
and soil conditions in the locality. A
substitute crop of pease and oats
could be used for silage with fair
success in those localities at very high
altiitudès where corn might not be
