George Ickes, Jr., stated that he had beeu able to secure good men through the haying harvest for $2.50 per day. L. i~. Chase stated that his: labor had cos! him $3 per day. George Ki|lc'dd had paid $?, and he expressed the desire to pay the laborer all that the farmer was able to pay him, but said that under existing condithms aed the future outlook for a good iprice for wheat as It is, the farmer would not be justified In paying over is considered by outsiders to be one of $3.50. .I.C.

Nels Couchlnan was asked to talk in behalf of labor. He gave a very able talk, statiug that the working- man must have wages enough to ena- ble him to support himself and family decently, but at the same time labor wanted a wage which was equally just to the employer. Several threshing machine men were present and were called upon to talk and several of them responded, but none seemed to be able to state ex- actly what the price should be for threshing, as the hazards of the busi- ness could not be reckoned with until actual el)era|ions had started. A comnlittee was chosen consisting of lwo men from each class repre- sented at the meeting and they were instructed to fix a schedule of prices Much has been done to interest. the farmers in the vicinity of Palouse in the work of the chamber of com- merce, but it is seldom that the ranch- ers contiguous to Palouse attend. It is to be hoped that next year the farnling communt'ty will become more interested in the work of the cham- ber. Much of the work of this body directly concerns the welfare of the farmer. With his aid this organiza- tion would he able to be more of an instrument fur the upbuilding of this commnnity. Much as tt has accom- plished in the past, it could aceom- !)lish much more with the support of the farmer and both merchant and farmer would be fimtually benefited. J. T.

Bloom, son of Mr. and Mrs .ll)hn Bloom, returned home this week. Mr. Bloom entered the navy early in 1917 and served during the war on a transport and after hostili- ties had ceased he was transferred to the United States battleship Wyom- ing. He made nine trips across the Atlantic during the war and saw many European ports during that time. He was discharged in Honolulu re- rently. 1luring his service he rose to the rank of chief pharmacist mate. Mr. Bh)on~ has many interesting ex- periences to relate, having seen a great deal of the world. He is ac- companied on his visit by H. N. l]ciertz, wko also is a discharged navy man. He is en route to Malta Montana. his former home. Both men are pleased with navy life, but neither have decided to reenlisL M. E. Ladies to Hold Social. The M. E.

Is credited with a loss of $15,000,000 during the past year, and the Montgomery-Ward company is credited with a loss of $8,000,000. To the thinking man this suggests but one thought. When money is plentiful mail order houses prosper, but when money is scarce people do not send in a stream of money to these houses, but go to their local merchant for credit, UNION SEBVICES DRAW GROWD SUNDAY NIGHT Interesting Meetings Continue---Rev. Delepine Preaches on Churoh-- Choir Renders Fine Music. Those who attended the union ser- vices at the Methodist church Sunday evening, contemplating a dry sermon on a dry subject, were agreeably sur- prised, for Rev. C. R. Delepine han- dled his subject very ably. He drew distinction between the church and a church, declaring that any who had the spirit of Christ in his heart be- longed to the church of Jesus Christ. ile went on to say, however, that if any one belonged to the church and had not joined a church he was a slacker and had no place in the king- dora of God. tie declared further that many peo- ple belonged to a church who did not beh)ng to the church, and he ~aid that sueh people were doomed. His audience drew from his inference that it was safer to belong to the church and not behmg to a church than it was to belong to a church without be- kmging to the church. It seems al- most paradoxical that a man eould belong to a church without belonging to the church, or that a man could belong to the church without belong- ing to a church. Mr. Delepine made this paradoxical expression clear, however, by classifying the first as hypocrites and the second as slackers. It was Mr. Delepine's opinion that it was not good policy to place one's self in either of these lists, although he stated that there was a possible hope for the slacker, but none for the hyp- ocrite. The choir furnised especially good music. Miss Agnes Dllts rendered a solo. "Flee as a Bird." This song was very well rendered and caused a great deal of favorable comment from those present.

TROOP ORGANIZED BY I]II]L SGOIJ1S ORGANIZATION OF WORLD-WIDE L~[PORTANCE WILL BE ESTAB- LISHED--GIRLS MUST CONFORM TO SET OF RULES. At an initial meeting last Friday a girl scouts' movement was started ~:t Palouse. Mrs Ethel Wood wins chosen captain and a picnic plann0d for next Saturday. The headed wheat was chosen as the emblem for the new troop and brown and gold as its colors. %'ork for th~ coming sea- son was outlined and the girls are very enthusiactic over the prospects for a good thne. Such a movement should receive the backing and support of the en- tire community as It fills a long felt need for wholesome reereation for the girls of Palouse. There is nothing now or faddish about the scout orglnization. They were organized in America in 1912, and since then their growth has been phenomenal. At present there are 104,000 registered scouts in this country and each month brings in 3,000 new applicants, or scouting makes a universal appeal to girls just outgrowing the little girl stage as welt as to the older ones. There are troops in Russia and the Philip- pines, in Alaska and the West Indles~ in Palestiae, A u.-tralia, China, in England, France Norway and Den- mark, and everywhere the girl scouts have tl~e ai~i~;~,val and en- dorsement of thinking men and wo- men. The scout liteals are high, their laws strict, thelr leaders care- fully chosen, their work and play intelligently supervised. Outdoor life Is the ke)note of the scout movement. It provides a normal healthful outlet for the abundant en- ergy of the adolescent girl. Her in- terest Is gained and held through troop competition and merit b~lgl~. Rewards are given for profleienoy in different lines house keplng, home nursing, canning, cooking, l-nnsle, needlework, swimming and athleties. She Is taught thrift and ~onomy. The scout generally earus and makes her own uniform al~d ~ a r~ault has a pride In it that a taller made outfit could not give her. Each mer- it badge that she may add to It in- creases this sense of efficiency. A girl must learn the following be" fore she can become a tenderfoot: Mot to--"Bo Prepared." Slogan---"Do a Good Turn Dally." PROMISE--On my honor I will try to do my duty to God and my Coun- try; to help other people at all times and to obey the scout laws. Lawa of Girl Soouts 1. A girl scout's honor ia to be trusted. 2. A girl scout is loyql. 3. A girl scout's duty Is to be use- ful and to help others. 4.

A girl scout is cheerful. 9. A girl scout is thrifty. 10 . A girl scout is clean in thought word and deed. Banker's Assooiation Offers Reward The banks of Palouse are dlsplay- h~g placards announcing that a re- war,l of $1000 is offered by the Whit- man ('ounty Bankers Associatoin to any who will deliver the body of say one robbing or attempting to rob these banks. For some time now there has ben no reports of bank robberies Just what has caused the :utspension of the operations Is a matter of conjecture, but no doubt the fact tl~at the bankers them- :,elves taking matters into their own hands and preparing to defend them- selves has had a wholesome elect up- ou the hold up men.
