The Pomona Grange of Tusorawas
county, Ohio, recently issued a mani
festo and adopted a set of resolutions
which shows that the Eastern Granger
is equally dissatisfied with present
economical conditions as his Western
brother. The manifesto is too long
for our columns but we publish the
resolutions as follows:
1. That we know no political party,
but hold alike those heretofore vested
with political power responsible for
the corruptness of the existing
conditions; and we will hold those
now vested with political power re
sponsible if these conditions are per
mitted to remain.
2. We demand a reconstruction of
our governmental system and laws in
such a manner as will secure for us a
reasonable and just application of the
natural laws of trade and commerce
on a basis of true valuation.
3. We do further resolve that we
have not delegated the supreme power
to our public servants, and we ask
and require the initiative and refer
endum applied to all public questions,
and the right of recall of both men
and measures,, and applied to all
public servants, both elective and
4. We are unalterably and irrev
ocaly opposed to the 'Aldrich cur
rency plan,' or any other plan that
will give our banking system more
power than it now has. But we re
commend the establishing by the
government of a "National reserve
association," owned and operated
by the government.
5. We demand that our postal
banks be made government banks,
vested with power to loan money
direct to the people.
6. We are diametrically opposed
to the issuing of interest-bearing
government bonds, but recommend
the issuing of governmental legal

POTATO GROWING CONTEST.
Under direction of the Washington
State grange, a boys' and girls' potato
growing contest will be conducted in
the state this year.
Contestants must be grange mem
bers under the age of eighteen years,
on January Ist, 1913, provided, that
any boy or girl under the age of four
teen years whose parents are members
in good standing of any grange in
the stair may, enter the contest.
Each plat of ground must be one
square rod in size, and the seed used
may be of any white, kidney shaped
variety of potatoes.
Any method of cultivation and
fertilization may be used, but all
work must be done by the contestant,
and each contestant must keep a com
plete record of all operations, amounts
and kinds^of fertilizers, giving^dates
of planting and digging, and any
other points of interest.
The crop of potatoes shall be judg
ed on a basis of a possible 60 points
for quantity, a possible 25 points for
quality and a possible 5 points for
report of operations.
Digging shall be in the presence
of some disinterested party, who shall
weigh and certify to size of tract and
weight of potatoes. No potatoes
shall be counted, which shall have
been dug from outside the 16>s toot
The quality shall be judged on the
basis of one-half bushel of the crop,
selected by the contestant and shown
at some place designated by the local
committee in the several districts.
An essay shall be prepared, which
shall consist of a report of all opera
tions, etc., and shall consist of not
less than two hundred and not more
than five hundred words, said essay
not to be judged on a literary basis,
but on the completeness and clearness
of statement of facts.
The state body recommends that
each subordinate grange co operate
with the state grange by arranging
for a local exhibit and contest, to be
entered into by members of one or
more granges in a neighborhood, and
offering local prizes for competition.
STATE COLLEGE MEN SUCCESSFUL.
If it be thorough, eveu biief in
struction is valuable. A case in
point is the judging contests con
ducted at the recent Northwest Live
Stock Show at Lewiston, Idaho. In
the contest for boys and girls under
18 years of age, several high schools
ootered contestants and many boys
from common schools took part.
Eric Egge, of Pullman, Washington,
made the best score and won first
place. Ross Atberson and George
Whitten of the same school were close j
contenders for first place. The boys
were taught by Lee Lampson, a 11)10
graduate of the Washington State
College, who is instructor in agricul
ture in tbe Pullman high school.
The Garfield schools entered three
boys, Two of them were over eighteen
years of age and had to compete
against University of Idaho short
course men. Both the Garfleld boys
were successful in winning prizes,
even against men with college train
ing. Benton Stookey, a 1912 graduate
of the State College, is instructor in
agriculture in the Garfield high school
and coached the boys from that place.
All of the prizes carried actual
money value. Of more importance is
the fact that such contests interest
the boys in good stock. With proper
instruction they soon learn to recog
nize good stock and to know why it
