REGON AGRICULTURAL COL-
Corvallis, Feb. I. (Spe
cial.) The time for the war gar
dener to begin work Is near at hand
and plans for gardens already are un
der way in many homes. This season
the war garden will be a serious con
sideration, due to the fact that so much
wheat and meat have been released for
war purposes, reducing the home sup
ply. Many of the enthusiastic garden
ers of last Spring are not anxious to
try the vegetable raising plan next sea
son. To combat this feeling and to give
advance information on war garden
planning. G. B. Bouquet, of Oregon
Agricultural College, has prepared a
bulletin on the "Home Vegetable Gar
den." Other bulletins on the actual
growing of vegetables will be issued
when the season for that work arrives.
Many Gardens Kail.
. The factors which caused amateur
gardeners to fail last year in pro
ducing norma crops are many, says
Mr. Bouquet- Many people planted
without knowledge of how to garden.
The past year's training will prove
valuable this year. Unfavorable wea
ther conditions last season were dis
couraging. No definite planting plans,
the selection of unsuitable ground and
the lack of fertilizer, were factors
which contributed much to the failures.
The seed supply of 1918 is unusually
low because of the reduction of foreign
crop Importation, excessive buying of
seed last year, and unfavorable seed
crop weather conditions. Many Inex
perienced gardeners bought too much
seed for their backyard plots. Garden
ers should realize this shortage and
estimate the quantities of seed needed
and should plant carefully to prevent
loss of seedling plants by excessive
Fertiliser Held Keeeeaary.
Last Spring city gardeners endeav
ored to grow bumper crops on ash
heaps, and other unsuitable tracts. In
most instances the seeds gave up the
struggle after a short period and the
garden was a failure. Few garden
areas will produce satisfactory crops
without the addition of fertilizer. To
be of good quality vegetables must
THRIFT DAY TODAY
Objects Will Be Set Forth at
IDEALS WILL BE EXPLAINED
Oregon War Savings Stamp Organi
zation to Make Public Acquainted
With Government's Objects
In Coming Campaign.
Thrift, particularly as to its practice
at this time as a patriotie'duty in con
nection with the Government's war
savings stamp campaign, will be the
subject of discussion at a mass meeting
at the Public Auditorium at 2:30 o'clock
today in observance of National Thrift
It is the desire of the Oregon war
savings stamp organization to make
the public acquainted with the Govern
ment's aims and ideals in the thrift
campaign. The campaign is to last
until December 31, 1918, and though
the raising of 32,000.000 for war-winning
purposes is one of the ultimate
objects in view, Oregon's share of the
fund being 317,000,000, the National
thrift organization places in importance
before the financial end the awakening
of a war-consciousness and the spirit
of co-operation and the inculcation of
habits of thrift.
Ideal to Be Studied.
The Ideal rather than the material
Istic purposes of the campaign will be
especially considered at today s meet
There will be no charge of admis
sion, no collection will be taken, and
no sales solicitation will be made.
K. B. McNaughton, chairman of Con
gressional District No. 1, in the Y. S.
S. organization, will preside. Brief ad
dresses will be made by Rev. E. H. Mc-
Collister, dean of St. Stephens pro.
Cathedral, Episcopal; Rev. V. W
Toungson, district superintendent of
the M. E. Church; Rev. K. H. Pence, "of
W estminster Presbyterian Church
Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, of Congregation
Beth Israel; Rev. Father Cartwrigl t, of
the Catholic Church, and K. A. Brown
for the Young Men's Christian Associa
Fredrick W. Goodrich will play a
number of selections on the pipe organ,
and there will be other music, including
vocal solos and a quartet.
"There is still some lack of appreel
ation tn the public mind as to what
the War Savings Stamp campaign
really Is. says Henry E. Reed, chair
man of the civic-military committee of
the War Savings Stamp organization,
"and National Thrift day has been se
lected throughout the Nation as a fit
ting time at which to set forth the
real objects of the propaganda."
Churches to Observe Day.
The mass meeting at the Auditorium
will be a continuation of the thrift
services to be held at many local
churches this morning.
Sales of war savings stamps in Ore
gon are increasing steadily.
Word was received at campaign
headquarters-Saturday that J. M. Han

over the work of this important post.

Private messages from France have
indicated that the American commander
approves the selection and will not
block General March's appointment, but
so far as is known, no official reply
has come from General Pershing.
Coming from many months of close

Army officers see in the appointment
of General March promise of a moro

assistant, took over the work, but did
not succeed to . the title of chief of
