The grain faxmers of Wash- ington are locked in a deadly battle with me and nacur-- and they are losing ground. It is a threat that could afeet the lives o4 every ctize. Millions of tos of the rich and fertile topsoil that makes Was'hhagton Whe*at and grain fields among the most produc- tive in the naLion, are being relentlessly eaten away each year, the vicm o wind, freeze and thaw, and driving rMn. Whitman County Loses Whitman County, *he great- est whe producing county in the rmon,  pt year lost 21.9 nlvi tons of topsoil its greatest sngle year los on record. The warning was made tbi, week in a report from the Spokane Coumy Association of Wheat Growers. "It is str .tlag to realize that in 'the past 80 to 100 years, nearly half o,f the foot- thick layer of topsoil Chat gives life to Washi,ngt's ag- ricuR,ure 'has been lost by eros}on.

Spokane Attorney Assumes Practice Of H. D. Walker Bernard J. Calhgher, for- mer associate and persona] friend of the late H. D.
