In a straw ballot the vote was Coolidge 34, La Folette 24, 'and Davis 18. That romance does not de- teriarafe with age was proved by John ('.earner, 82, and Mrs. Mattie Hatfietd, 57, two of Che- ney's earliest settlers, when the)" were married here Satur- day evening.

Water Useless If Lawn Dead, Agent Advises Don't waste water on lawns until you know tLhey can be helped, advises Herman, D. Kruismyk, Spokane County ex- tension agent. This is not to .ay that action isn't necessary, but steps shouM be taken later to watering, according to Dr. Roy Goss, Whgton State Universityd,t exte.on service turf speiah'St. Kruiswyk says that Cross recommends the use of a c0en- nmrcial wetlg agent if cex-tahn patches of your lazn are not receptive to watering. Steep turfgrass, tltched r matted grass hyevs and ofiher problem points*may need this extra attention. These wetting gents reduce surface te 'nion af the grass and allow moe rapid permtra- tion of sprinkled water. "Always insst on non-ionic, org, anie wetting agents," Kruis- wyk says. "Don' use the stand- ard commercial detergents used by the soap industry be- cause these cause soft pb- lelns that eventually make in- itial vcatering diffieuJ]Ues seem minor." One or two aplMieatians of the weting agents per summer is recommended. July and Au- !gust are problem months. The use of a wetting agent may save money in the long run becau,se watering costa can be reduced. Conservation News By Clarence A. Kelley Soil Conservation Service The recent few days of hot, east wind brought a marked change in the Palouse. Such a change, in fact, that harvest is ,just around the corner. Blue- grass seed ,harvesting is al- ready underway in the Plaza- Spangle areas. However, s acreage in the Southwest Spa- karts SWCD is small Yield of bluegrass seed are n good as a general rule this year, due mainly to the poor spring growing conditions. Most of the dryland bay crops have been cut, baled and lmuled. Hay Yields were one- half o t nree-fourt,hs ton light- er this year haan last. Winter barley, although not large in acreage, is nearing harvest rapidly. Normai yields ,are anticipated. Peas are turning real fast and 'in 5-10 d.aTs combines will be rolling in a good many ficl6s. Yields could have been lowered slightly in pe by the dry east wind. Harvest Nearing Wirter wheat is a good three weeks away from cutting, but s'ame good yields are expired. Some light damage in filling the heads could have occurred as a result of the dry east wind, but it is too early yet .to tell. A large uge of winter wheat in the d.isiet is of he Gaines aiety. Good stooling has resulted except on some hilltops, where snow coverage was too lmg or the stand was slow getting eab- Eshed. There is quite a turn in the district for Unitam, a recent sgrmg feed barley release from Washington Ste Uni- vemi.ty. It loks exceent, mad some two-ton yields will quite likely be reported this sum- mer. Chetgrass is not posing a great woblem as a competitor this year--due mainly again to poor spring growing condi- tions. Rye is going to cause some farmers to weep, how- ever, when it comes market time, because of the hrge price dockage. Some serious thou,ght should be given to the comrol of this plant even if hand roguing becomes neces- sary. Footrot is present, as always. and a.rmers wilt begin to not- ice it more ,as ripening time comes on. Emergency Fund U.S. Series E Savin,gs Bonds are good to have as emergency funds. They can be converted to cash whenever you need it, anytime after the first two months. THE CHOICE SHOULD BE CLEAR .fff LONG - J  DEPIESSED !iiiii i!ii!i , " s00or "-al00 SOUND SOLUTION? ..

I have recently received a copy of a form letter signed by Ray Fitzgerald, depaty administrator of U. S. D. A.'s Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, Wash- ington, D. C., contairing inac- curate and miseading ino.r- ration concevrfing the e,ffect of .the 1964 wheat program on the market price of wheat. According to a spo,t check by Farm Bureau leaders, the i salne letter has been received by wheat growers in several Wash,ington counties. It is pre- sumed hat copies stp,plied by the U. S. D. A. rhe've been mailed to all wheat gowers in the state through county ASCS o;fices. Whether this is pa of a nationwide mailing to wheat growers has n'at been deter- nrined. Letter Misleading The letter was both in,accur- ate and misleading on several major tmints, but its Chief im- pact was to grossly misrepre- sent the workings of the wheat pricing structure and the e,f- feet of the export certificates required by ,the new wheat law on prices to the producer. I take issue with the writ- er's satement to the effect that without the new weat law the price of wheat would have dropped to abot $1.26 a bushel nationa,l average. This s[atement is based on the false assumption that the market price always follows the price- support loan rate. This is true only when the government loan vote is above the world market price and Uncle Sam lays the difference in the form of an export subsidy. That was the situation prior to July 1, but not n:ow. The truth is that had no new l wheat program been enacted this year, the net loan rate would have dropped to $1.161 on July 1 but the market price! would have stopped at about $1.77 basis f. o. b. Portland, which was the world price at that time. It cottkl be agtled! tha, t .in this event the world price would fall, but according to competent authorities only h r governmelt drapirg of s 'us stocks could 'have caused een a moderate slump. Grossly Inaccurate I also take issue with the writer's assea-an that the 25 cents a bushel repot certifi- cates (tax) required under the new wheat program will pre- vent wheat being prLeed below the world market price. This is ,a grossly inaccurate state- ment, apparently designed to cover up one of the worst ef- fects of the new wheat gro- gram. One of the facts that the U. S. D. A. official is apparent- ly trying'so hard to cover up is that they were wong hst year when they predicted wheat would be down to $1.00 a bushel in 1964 if growers voted down the referendum. The referendum was defeated anyway. The U. S. D. A. writer also mis,stated July futures quota- tious in attempting to s'how that wheat prices were expect- ed to be at or near the 1,ower su.ert level wior to eonsid- eratien last sprng of new wheat legislation. The record shows that the July utures] to push for new reheat leisla- I tion. I Test Case Planned I The facts are that Washing- J ton wheat growers would to- J dy be able to get 20 cents a [bushel more for their wheat ,on the open market if the 1964 wheat law had not been passed. This is because the net cost of the wheat export certifi- cates (25 cents a bushel less the present 5 cent expo sub- sidy) is part of the marketing cost and is now being reflected in cash orices .offered f. o. b. Povtland'and at local elevators. The state Farm Bureau, through its Wheat Export Tax Cormmittee, plans to file a test case in the near future chal- 'leng}rg the constRution, ality of the export certificates. ................ 2  2 Government Takes Role By Gov.

And, of course, the primary emphasis is always on focusing more of this for- eign trade with Wasfington state ports.

Is a driver automatically liable for any and ,all accidents in areas where young children are present? Sarah Smith's car struck Tommy Jones, a 5-year old boy, as she was driving down a city streOt. Sarah had noticed the boy run out of a store, across the sidewalk, and disappear from sight behind the cars parked along the street. Sarah took her foot off the accelera- tor and slowed down. Boy Is Hit Suddenly Tommy va from behird two parked cars, direct- ly into the path of her car. She applied her brakes, but was unable to avoid hitting the boy. Tomy's leg was broke, and his parents sued Sarah de- manding payment for the med- ical expenses as well as fay his pain and suffer'rag. '"It was an unavoidable ac- cident," said Sarah. "I was only going 12 miles a hour. The little boy just darted out so quicNy there was nflfing I could do." "She dmitted seeing Tom- my run toward the street," sad Tommy's parents. "Corn- mon ,sense shod have told her he might run into the street." ls Sarah liable in this ease? Not Negligent No, said the Supreme Court of Wisconsin in such a situa- tion.
