riculture will hold its annual
picnic tomorrow, after five
o'clock at the fairgrounds.
This will be the first annual

the organization is just a lit

per will be served with staff
members and their families
bringing the food. Looks like
no swimming, though.
Rufus C. Holman is strong
for standardization of wages.
In fact he is so sold on the idea
that he urges standardization
before another reduction in
state salaries, and then if nec
essary the cuts be based upon
the new schedule. Not a bad
idea at all.
While speaking of the agrlcul

grounds, one is reminded that
; the annual fair is not far off. Just
two more months remain to pre
pare for the annual event. Much
interest is noted in plans tor this
years fair, which will operate
without horse races and stock
shows, but with other attractions.
