MEMORY TREES TO SOLDIERS Plan Proposed to Adorn American Highways Meets With General Ap proval Throughout Country. To plant a tree along the great new American highways In honor of every United States soldier, sailor and ma rine In the World war, is a proposal which has met with the hearty sup port of the Amelean Legion, G. A. R Gold Star Mothers and other patriotic organizations. A permanent marker would be placed on each 'tree, bear ing the name of one veteran and his organization, with no Indication of rank. A separate Inscription would be placed on the trees representing those who died. Full success of the project means that the great Lincoln highway from New York to San Francisco and the Dixie highway from Chicago to Flor ida will be fringed with shade trees. President Harding has expressed his approval of the plan and the United States forestry bureau has promised Its aid. Will Build Clubhouse. Former service men who visit Chi cago In the future will not be without a place to spend a fe'jr hours.

' ' rib' 4 AtK 11 i GROWING SUGAR BEET FOR SEED Annual Reauirement in This Country Is Approximately 16,000,000 Pounds. REQUIRES LARGE INVESTMENT Plant Is Biennial and Roots Do Not Under Normal Conditions, Send Up Seed Stalks and Develop Seed Until Second Year. .Prepare! by th- fulled Stales Depart ment of Agriculture.) One of the first requisites of a per manent and satisfactory beet-sugur in dustry Is an adequate supply of seed of good quality. It has been scarce and as a result the production of sniur-heet seed III the lulled States has made rapid progress dining the past few years. The present annual requirement In this country is approxi mately lti.ikto.iHH) pounds, of which about 50 per cent Is now produced within the nation's borders. With the continued development of the sugar beet InduMry more and more seed Is required each year, but It Is confident ly expected by specialists of the United Slates Department of Agricul ture that eventually the total Ameri can requirement will be grown. In this country. In order to encourage the growing of sugar-beet seed and assist In lis development along proper lines, the department recently published Farmers' Bulletin 1152, "Growing Sugar-Beet Seed In the Rocky .Moun tain States." Investment Required Large. The development of this Industry has been greatest In the Irrigated sec tions of Colorado, Montana, I'tah and Idaho, and special reference Is given In the bulletin to the growing of sugar beet seed In this region. The Industry Is best adapted to large operators, the Investment required for special ma chinery being so great that the busi ness Is not really profitulde on less than li acres. It Is to the growing of sugar beets on a large scale that the Instructions in the bulletin refer. The sugar beet plant Is a biennial and the roots do not, under normal conditions, send up seed stalks and j develop seed until the second ;ear. I lieets of small size are grown the nrst i season, are stored In pits known as : silos during the winter, transplanted In the spring, and the seed Is har vested at the end of the second sea son. Only small-sized rools not over 10 ounces in weight are used for com mercial seed production. The eight ounce beets are usually considered One of the Many Widely Varying Types of Sugar Beet Found in Com. mercial Fields. the most profitable. These are known among seed producers as steckllngs. Hoots for commercial seed produc tion are usually started about the same time as beets Intended for fac tory purposes, though some growers have had better success by starting their strecklings a little later, as In June. July sowings may be satisfac tory If conditions happen to be Just right, but usually contain a large per centage of roots loo small for profit able handling. To keep the roots from growing too large, seed Is gen erally sown at the rate of 10 to 18 pounds per ncre and the plants are left unthlnned. It is Important that the seed be of highest quality and, be cause an even stand is highly desir able, the hulletln recommends that germination tests be made. Harvest of Steckllng. The steckllng harvest should be started before freezing weather. In northern Colorado It generally begins by September 20 and Is usually com pleted with all the beets lu the silos by October 10. Harvesting begins by mowing the tops of the steckllngs as close to the ground as practicable. If the mowers are run first one way and then back ngnln on the same row, many leaves will be cut off which would not be removed If the machines were run In one direction only. The beets are then plowed out, and In or der to do this work so that they may be gathered more readily, It Is fre quently desirable to irrigate before harvesting, especially If the soil Is dry. If the foliage of the steckllngs Is thick and heavy, It pays to gather the leaves and silo them for feed, but usually they are left on the ground to dry. In order to prevent drying out, steckllngs must be hauled Immediately after being pulled. ANY DETERIORATION IS LOSS 8oener or Later It Must Be Replaced Whether Inside or Out Wear , . , 8tarts at Surface. Any deterioration Is a loss which sooner or later must be replaced; whether of buildings inside or out, of Iron or wooden fences, concrete or ce ment structures, furniture, carriages, wagons, tractors, Implements every thing. Anything with a surface needs protection.' All wear and tear starts first at the surface. Jl:3 'J PRAISE CO-OPERATIVE TRUCK ASSOCIATIONS Handy Means of Transportation at Reasonable Cost. Opportunity Afforded Farmer of Get- ting His Produce to Consuming Centers and Securing Supplies for Farm Needs. Prepared t.v the fulled Suites Depart ment of AKrtculture.) In manv sections of the country dur ing the past few years the motor truck Ikis met the need for some rename, onveiih'tit means of transportation at reasonable cost whereby the farmer an get his produce to the consuming Particularly Serviceable Type Truck for Ail-Round Work. of centers and secure the commodities which he must obtain from these same centers, specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture have found. There has been a keenly felt need In many rural communities for such a means of transportation. While In most places trucks are owned and operated either by the farmers for their personal benefit, or by private Individuals who hold them selves ready to haul for the public generally at an agreed rate, it Is be lieved that many rural communities would find It more economical to form motor truck co-opera I've associations. Many farmers who live within ID to 25 miles of consuming centers raise bor- ,!,., fruit, and truck crops, and most ,,f ,m,, ,i,.ver t,r produce directly to the city markets. During the busy season this requires several trips each week. To make the trip by team means a long, hard day for both men and horses. Before undertaking the formation of stub an association, specialists of the department advise that a survey be made to determine that an actual need exists and that there will be sufficient business to warrant operating at least one truck. It must be remembered, too. they say, that the personal factor will in a large measure determine the ultimate success of the association. MOLES ARE GREAT NUISANCE Bureau of Biological Survey encour ages Eradication of Trouble some Little Pest. "The little gentleman In black vel vet" who caused the death of King William III by digging the burrow that tripped the Knglish king's horse Is finding his black velvet Jacket a coveted possession. Iteports from the leading fur di alers In this country In dicate that the number of American moleskins marketed during the last fiscal year was 20 per cent greater than for the preceding 12 months. The bureau of biological survey, United States Department of Agriculture, Is largely responsible for this Increase. In conducting demonstrations In co operation with public schools, states extension services, nnd other organize' tlons, the bureau has encouraged the eradication of the mole from territo ries where the little animal has be come a pest. Boys' and girls' clubs have been given an opportunity to study the trapping methods most ef fective and also the best way to care for the tiny pelts. The year's catch of moles yielded a peltry value In the state of Washington of $00,000, and, due to the efforts of the specialists, a costly nuisance has been reduced. GRINDER HANDY AND USEFUL Work Is Done Much Faster When Tools Are Sharp Grindstone Put Out of Business. Sharp tools make the work go fast er, but It's Impossible to have them without something with which to do the sharpening. A tool grinder of the high-speed type, either pedal or hand turned, Is haudy and useful on any farm. These grinders have about put the old grindstone, so disliked in our boyhood days, out of business.

Last year more than 2,000,000 hoys and girls In cities, large towns und In dustrial villages In the United States cultivated gardens under school direc tion and supe'rvlslon and produced many millions of dollars' worth of veg etables and small fruits to be con sumed where produced without cost for transportation and handling and without loss fftun deterioration on the markets. There were many thousands of hoys and girls who produced more thnn $,'0 each in what would other wise have been Idle time, and thou sands of acres of hind thnt would have lain Idle If It had not been cultivated by the hoys and girls yielded more than $500 nn acre. The educational value to the chll dren was far greater than the value of the food products. That value ll' eluded health, physical vigor, habits of ndustry, knowledge of plant life and of the phenomena nnd forces of na ure, and the beginning of the under standing of the fundamental moral principle that every one should gladly contribute to his own support by his own labor. The United States bureau of edu cation will not be able to follow up this work this year as fully as It has for several years pnst," writes P, P. Clinton, United States commissioner of education, "but I hope the Interest of children, teachers, superintendents nd school hoards will not lag and that the time will soon come when this school-directed home garden work will recognized as a necessity and on essential part of the education of chil dren In all cities, towns and Industrial vlllugcs."

The prince of Wales has brought back with him from the Antipodes a very beautiful conception of a form oX memorial for the soldiers who have fallen In the great war. He approached Bullurat, the great gold mining city In the Australian colony of Victoria by means of a broad avenue, some fifteen miles long, lined on either side by trees, which are flourishing, and that bid ere Long to form a sort of foliage domed roof for the entire thoroughfare. Each tree, planted within the last three or four jears, and there are about Ave thousand of them, com memorates a Bullurat boy who gave his life for the empire at the front In France, on the peninsula of Gal lipoli and In Palestine. Each of the trees bears tlio name of the soldier Igd whose supre.ne sacrifice It Is de signed to recall to his kith and kin at Ballarot I-ondon Mall. Fight Well Worth Waging. It pays the community to make a battle for tree treasures. It Is a fight wMcb should employ many differ ent tactics and a rids. First, perhaps, should be the selection for city plant ing of trees that are most nearly Immune to the more dangerous pests. Next Is good care, and the foster ing of birds which do so much to check insect plagues. Finally comes scraping snd spraying to get rid of the enemies which, like the oyster shell scale, have broken through the other lines of defense. A good tree Is worth fighting for.

Marshall, an English scout offi cial who visited this country recently, writes as follows in an article In The Trull, the official organ of the London scout council : "American boy scouts are very much as we are. "It Is a tremendous responsibility upon the shoulders of the executives of the Boy Scouts of America, and our own executives to guide aright the thoughts, hopes and aspirations of the youth of these two' great English speaking nations. We must remem ber our colonies are part of us and our great ernrtre, but Americans owe allegiance to their own President and government, though they speak our tongue surely the closest of ties I It Is therefore our bouuden duty to take every step we can to further the closest relationship possible between us. Animated by the same Ideals as we are, It should be our aim to de stroy all thoughts of distrust and sus picion between the two greut nations and encourage the hope that working together we can really make the world safe for democracy.' Among all the American scout officials there Is the keenest desire to learn all about us, to study the best that Is In us and take It to ourselves. From our age long character, from our quulltles of perseverance nnd doggedness, they can learn something, whilst we, too, from their buoyant enthusiasm and youth, can help ourselves to the full. Who knows but what the boy scout move ment In America will have the grea' est influence that any movement In that country has ever had in shaping the destinies of a great people, and In binding together two people hav ing more In common than any other people In the world?" SCOUTS MEASURING DISTANCE. Among the Many Useful Tilings Scouts Learn Is the Measuring of Distance. EYES TO THE BLIND. "And, God, kindly extend Thy bless ings to the boy scouts of Pasadena !" Bo prays a grateful blind mun nightly out In California. This Is the Btory behind his prayer, a big stoty for alt Its simplicity : "You can get back your sight," said the doctor, "provided you will take long walks daily. Exercise Is the only thing that will help you." Think of It, boys! To be able to see again, to see birds and trees and mountains and the faces of friends and dear ones after long blackness! But how could he take those long dally walks by himself? And he was a poor man. How could he afford to hire a companion to guide him? It was almost hopeless. He must go on In darkness unless Ood could bring help as by a miracle. What happened? The miracle. A troop of boy scouts heard of the sad case and volunteered to take turns In escorting the blind man dally on his walk. Best of all, the doctor's proph ecy Is coming true. The man will get bark Ills sight and the boy scouts of Pasadena will have another good turn to their credit. PRESIDENTIAL TREES. Boy scouts of Pasadena have plant ed trees at their week-end camp, ded icated respectively to the late Theo dore Boosevelt, to ex-Prenldents Wil son and Taft. President Harding and Vice President Coolidge, The trees were planted by 21 scouts represent ing 21 scout troops of Pasadena and the 21 year of preparation for citl senshlp. j LEARNING BY DOING.
