Lather J. Chapin Speaks
to Salem Floral Society
: Luther J. Chapin. former county
agricultural agent, gave an address
on "War Gardening" before the Sa
lem Floral society at Its meeting In
the Salem Commercial club auditor
ium Monday night. Mr. Chapin em
phasized three points in his speech,
gardening for profit, gardening for
pleasure and health, and gardening
for patriotism -
' In the development of his subject
the speaker dwelt at some length on
soils, their treatment, drainage by
sub-Irrigation instead of ordinary
methods, the breaking of ground in
tended for garden purposes in the
fall or winter. He somewhat sur
prised a large part of his audience
when he told them a compost of
dried leaves and ashes makes the
very-best kind of fertilizer, barring
the more expensive kinds. Most peo
ple after the winter has passed, and
real spring comes, have : the bad
habit of raking the dried leaves Into
piles and urnlnr them- a ' rank
waste of good material, according to
Mr. Chasln, that eosts no more to
spread on the garden patch and not
so much effort as to wheel out into
the streets and waste a lot of
iifatrhes and paper to make a small
sized conflagration, which . does
nothing but scent the whole neigh
borhood for days.
"In the first place plant spuds.

and then some more spuds," said Mr.
Chapin. "This Is a war necessity,
leaving those raised for commercial
purposes for array use; then aspar
agus, rhubarb, and last of all but not
the least, make a horse radish bed.
and when you have used all you
want during the seaftm, pull up the
plants and plant them again in the
spring. Many leave these plants In
the ground all winter, which. Is a
great mistake." ; .

FINAL TEST TO BE
ON WESTERN FRONT
(Continued from page 1)
received today from Minister Vo-
plcka at Jassy, Rumania.
Such consular officers as the
United States happens to" have in
Ukrainian territory will be retained
at their posts jn accord with all
usages in the case of the establiah-
ment of new governments, but this
cannot be taken to mean even a de
facto recognition. Official ronfirm-r
atlon that either -France or Great
Britain had recognized the Eew Uk
rainian government was still; lacking
today. - .j . t - x. ,
The one clear thing in the whole
situation from a military point of
view is that the struggle has nar
rowed down to a western front of
which the Italian theater already has
been of flcally recognized , as a por
tion by the allied chiefs. The final
test of arms Is to come on that front.
