J. and I:. WILLIAMSON CO. of Palou LATAH FARM BUREAU MOVES TO NEW OFFICES Farmers Invited to Visit County Agent~Office Day Is Saturday of Each Week. The office of the Latah County Farm Bureau and of O. S. Fletcher,t I county agricultural agent, has been moved from the offices of the Farm- ers Union Warehouse company on South Main street, Moscow, to the Os-, troot office, on Fifth street in the former Shields & Frantz building. The proposition of moving the office has been under consideration tor some time, as the Farmers Union Is in need of all the room in their building. Also the officials of the Farm Bureau felt that the Union was being subjected to unjust criticism by some who claimed that the Union was deriving direct financial benefit by having the office of the county agent in the Union building. The officials of the Farm Bureau do not believe this to be the ease, but desire to remove any possi- ble ground for complaint. N. Wllltgmson, president of the Farm Bureau, has given a statement to the press in which he says that during the three and one-half year~ since the Farm Bureau was organized it has been given office room, fuel and light free of all charge by the Farmers Union, for the purpose of aiding and helping establish the work of the Farm Bureau in Latah county, and he believes the management Is entitled to credit for Its liberality and assistance. The Latah County Farm Bureau was organized as, and is now, an edu- cational organization and Is not com- mercial. Through this organization the farmers cooperate with the col- lege of agriculture and the experi- ment station and with the United States department of agriculture in the solution of their problems. Among the projects on which the Farm Bu- reau ts working are Hvestock im- provement, grain standardization, weed control, land clearing, p~t con- trol and poultry improvement. Farm- era in all sections of the d~untry are Interested in the work of the Farm Bureau and 24 communities have local organizations. Farmers from any part of the coun- tY, whether Farm Bureau members or not, are invited by County Agent Fletcher to cMl at his new headquar- ters when in Moscow. Mr. Fletcher will continue to hold Saturday of each week as office day and can be seen tu his office on other da~s by appoint- malt. Red Cross.

The most difficult tiling for an Amer- ican traveling in Europe, outside of England, is to have a window opened in the dining room of a hotel or on a t train. ] saw an aged Fren('h baron at i Mentonc enter the dining room of a hotel with two valets and a tame waiter who was engaged specially to-I keep out the slightest draught.

The two valets at his side fed him with the choicest tid- bits from the table, but he was not satisfied. Just before I left the ener- getic waiter found a keyhole which had not been used for a quarter ofa century and plugged it up. When I was at the Krupp factory in Essen in May, the chief engineer took me from one building to another in a fine limousine car belonging to one of the dlreetor~. It was a very hot day and I suggested that we might Red Cross Gives $310,000 to Aid 'Clean-Up' Drive An approl)rlatlon of $310.000 for Red Cross work lzl cermet'lion with 1he "clean-up" campaign instituted by the Government to bring tim clalm:~ .f all disabled service men who are entitled to Federal aid before the proper gov- ernment bureau for action, has been made by the' American Red (:ross.
