This Is tho first reply recolvod to

splendid state-whin example.

A letter Issued to the members of
the county agricultural council by
County Agriculturalist Hlanohard,
omphaslzos the food shortage whleh
menaces the nation, nnd urges the
Immediate meeting of all farm or
ganizations in tho county, to do their
part In solving (ho problem.
Mr. Illanchard's letter Is as fol
lows; Tho United fltatos Is at war. Largo
preparations ore being mado for mu
nitions and an army of 2,000,000
mon. It Is a matter of historical re
cord that during tho length of any
hostilities between nations it Is not
guns and men but food, that offors
tho most sorlous problem. You al
ready know why Germany waged her
submarine warfare. You have read
for two years of Dolglum's pitiful
plight, as woll as others. Thero ex
ists a world food shortage and tho
American farmer holds tho crisis in
If our county agricultural council,
which has worked so splendidly prior
to this cvont. has never functioned in
a big way, tho opportunity now beck
ons for action. President Wilson is
calling on the loyalty of every Amer
ican citizen to take up the hoe, pro
duce something of value, that our
army, navy, citizens and allies may
be fed. Our council of 33 members
represents organized farmers of over
1175 men in both Crook and Des
chutes counties In Oregon.
To each member who receives this
letter an urgent requost is being
made to immediately call your local
club, union, grange, organization and
neighbors together. Explain to the
farmers that this Is not a matter of
tho agriculturalist, tho council, your
self or any particular interest, but
ooncorns us all in patriotic duty to
tho United States In that mutual co
operation which characterizes a suc
cessful national in war.
Tho movomont is national, spread
ing over tho entlro country, every
city nnd town is mobilizing Its cit
izens and children in back yard and
vacant lot gardening. Tho American
farmer ns never boforo in our history
has a duty to perform. Prices of
course aro bound to be high.
The season is already late and in
some parts advanced. However, tho
following are some of tho things we
can do:
1. I) rood every sow on tho place
2. Dreed all heifers ln condition.
3. Plant more potatoes, within
reason ef labor.
4. Sow spring barley, wheat, rye,
and oata on ever available place.
