Union Officials Claim at Least
600,000 Workers Will Be

E VENTS HAM
Indianapolis, Ind. Coal production
was stopped by the union coal miners,
who quit in the mines of 20 states
with the avowed policy of remaining
idle indefinitely in an effort to force
the operators to accept the miner's
terms for new wage contracts.
Officials at the headquarters here
of the United Mine Workers of Amer
ica declared that the suspension would
not only include a half million work
ers, but also that at least 100,000 non
union men would join in the walkout.
No last-minute instructions were is
sued from headquarters anil the only
significant conference held by John L.
Lewis, president, was with Lonnle
Jackson, president of the Kentuck;
union district, where 5000 union , sn
will continue at work because t :eir
contract with operators has another
year to run.
In a formal statement Mr. Lewis
declared the nation-wide walkout
would affect "hundreds of thottsai is
of citizens" not directly engaged in
the coal industry, and he relter; ted
his charge that the operators had
"forced the strike upon the miners."
Union men in Nova Scotia will re
main at work but those in the western
Canadian provinces were expected to
Join the suspension.

COUNT! At. EXT CALKINS
o DIVERSIFIED FARMING
We are in the same position of all
new projects. Alfalfa has necessar-j
Uy been the main crop used in re-'i
claiming the land. Regardless of
the future rotations that may be ad-:
opied. alfalfa will be our major crop.
Alfalfa alone was quite satisfactory j
even though the entire crop was sold
while prices were high. The returns j
are not sufficient with present alfal
t':: prices to make such practice pro
After Interviewing a large number
of farmers a't Board man and lrrigon
we found that they are all pussled
as to what farming practice to adopt.
With alfalfa as a major crop, the
first step of Importance is to provide
;oino satisfactory outlet for that pro
duct at a good price. The feeding of
tin' hay to dairy or beef cattle or
Pet der lambs will usually net you
greater returns if in a position lo
do that feeding for yourself. It
leaves the manure on the farm which
if properly applied will greatly in
crease crop yeilds. The possibilities
along this line are well worth careful
invest igal ion.
The ordinary farm in going to
need some cash crop to augment the
income. Late potatoes on the SOett
binds offer perhaps the best induce
ment at this lime. We would not
recommend that anyone put ill a
large acreage unless quite familiar
with the raising of potatoes under
Boardnian conditions but we do re
commend thai small acreages be
tried by a large number this year.
Old alfalfa land should be aged,
Crapes will no doubt be a good
future crop. a. b. Capp, of Grand
' View, Wash., is selling one year old
Concord plants at 8 1-2 mrnts. Those
plants are as 'arge aB two year olds
I and are a bargain, the most of the
plants sidling at from 10 to 15 cents.
His supply is about exhausted, how
ever, Strawberries and cane fruits
as well as asparagus will do well on
some of. our soils In limited acreag
Partners inclined along these lines
COUld Well be tesling these out.
Wind breaks are Important lor
small fruits and vegetables and
: should be planted at once.
With alfalfa as your major crop, j
be careful about gelling other ormps
, that will Conflict with the major
j crop which requires most of your
lime. Feeding of live stock or rais
ing late potatoes fit in well. Lim
ited amounts oi the other crops man-
I tloned can also be worked in on I lie i
average farm. Study these crops as
the appear on Hie project llns .war.
