"VOLUME IX MOSCOW, LATAH COUNTY, IDAHO, number tar TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1920 DAVIS A CANDIDATE for own successor! /jdViBvnu w.Kwt! » fi0 TERM îNSTFA > T» A nw S »rTwîïîî E,i TERM INSTEAD OF BUNNÏNG FOR THE SENATE BOISE.—In his statement announc ing his candidacy for nomination for re-election, Governor Davis says: "In making the statement that I expect again to be a candidate for governor of Idaho it is with abso lutely no intention of opening up at this time a campaign for the nom ination. It is doné rather for the purpose of informing my friends in the political party with which I affili ate that the wishes of many of them are being acceded to in this action. "Six months will ensue before the conventions which will nominate the candidates for state office and in that time matters of the most supreme im portance to Idaho and her people will *be before ua. In these I hope to take -a part and expect to give my energies a campaign for office. Naturally it will accord me but little time to give to political matters. "If members of the republican party in their state convention select me I will stand squarely upon the ad ministration records. I have had an opportunity to know without ques tion that the business of the state has been conducted carefully and with a high degree of efficiency by those placed in charge. Let me make the positive statement that our cabinet form of government is a living, virile success. Let me make the prediction that Idaho will never change back to the worn-out, out-of-date system of the pasts. Our new ideas of state government may approve and may enlarge but the principle of central ized responsibility will remain.'' To the republicans of Idaho Gov ernor Davis gave the following mes sage; "There never was a greater neces sity for a united party and unselfish individual activity than there is today in Idaho and in America. We repub licans must establish ourselves on ground where conservative, construc tive thinkers of other parties may find in our party the organization where true Americanism thrives. There must be harmonious action in the elimination of radical thought and of hysteria and the only way to get this is for men in every public posi tion and in every line of endeavor to think for the general good. "I believe our party represents constructive thinking and that it will bring into its folds a great army of Independent voters who have in the past paid little attention to partisan politics. "My party and the people of Idaho have highly honored me and may I express the hope, beyond all things, that my service to them has been and will be in a degree the proof of my appreciation." FORGING FARMERS ON BUSINESS OASIS FARM MANAGEMENT DEMON STRATOR THINKS- INCOME TAX MAY BE BLESSING Inasmuch as the income tax law is forcing farmers to • put their farm ing on a business basis and to keep a "To supply the need for an adequ ate farm account book, the extension division already has on hand an In expensive book which will be dis tributed at cost.

C. Taylor, newly appointed farm management demonstrator of the University of Idaho extension divi sion. "Any farm account should provide for an inventory of all real estate^ livestock, machinery, feed and sup plies on hand at the beginning of the year and at the end of the year,'.' says Mr. Taylor. One of his first services to the farmers of the state working through the county farm bureaus and in cooperation with the county agents, will be to assist them in establishing ^uch accounting sys tems. Then he will help them in terpret the figures they have kept, so they will know just why it is that they are not making thé money they ought to be making or why they are making so much. "Farmers will undoubtedly have to submit income statements next year, as in the past," says Mr. Taylor, and even thought no income report were required by law it would be ad visable from the farmer's individual standpoint to have such a set of fig ures for his own use. "The farm account should provide, not only for an inventory, but also for a list of all cash farm expenses and all cash sales from the farm, in day book form, just as they occur throughout the year. Finally, it should provide for a summary of the year's figures, showing the farm in come and an analysis of the strong features of the weakness of the busi ; ness. ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦ Lumber Prices to Drop. !+ SPOKANE.—(By A.

ELKS (0 mil EXTENSION WORKERS UNIVERSITY FIELD FORCE TO BE GUESTS OF LODGE—RE CEPTION TOMORROW get ac quainted with the university and let the university people get better ac quainted with them. And they want to meet the people of Moscow while they are here. To do this two re ceptions have been arranged. The first will be held at the Uni versity of Idaho tomorrow (Wednes day) night, beginning at 8 o'clock sharp. Moscow men and women are invited to go to the university and meet the visitors. All are to meet at the Administration building and there they will be divided into groups and visit the home economics department, where ice cream cones or some other form of refreshment and good cheer will be offered. They will visit the engin eering and other laboratories, In fact they are expected to visit all departments, for the great univer sity, will keep "open house" for the out of town visitors and the people of Moscow. Every department will ! be in operation and this will prob- 1 ably be the 'first time that many Moscow people will have seen it in ' operation. If the weather and roads | are fit those having cars may visit the stock barns and especially the dairy bams and creamery plant. It is felt that Moscow citizens owe this much to these men and women who are working the year around for the j good of the school and for the uplift ing of those who cannot come to it. They are taking the message from the university to the men and women and children of the state. It is hoped there will be a big attendance. The affair is to be absolutely informal and there will be no regular program but a "get-to-gether" meeting is to be held and everybody given an op portunity to meet everybody else. Elks Entertain Friday Night. But in case all cannot attend the university reception tomorrow night the Elks will hold an informal re ception at their hall Friday night where Moscow men and women will be given another chance to meet the visitors.
