Washington, D. C, Mar. 8. "Ride
'em cowboy" will likely be the battle
cry in the Department of Agriculture
for the next four years. That there
is going to be some plain and fancy
riding U a foregone conclusion, to
those acquainted with the life story
of Dr. William M. Jardine, former
cowboy and ranchman who becomes
Secretary of Agricultlure March 4th.
Cowboy to Cabinet.
From the great west, comes Jar
dine. Born in Idaho 46 years ago, he
spent the first sixteen years of his
life on his father's ranch. He "punch
ed" cattle, broke broncos, at 25 cents
each, and attended district school In
the winter. At 17 he felt the call to
be out and doing, so he left the home
ranch and went to Big Hole, Mont.,
where he got a job on a cattle ranch,
performing the usual tasks of a ranch
He then became interested in dairy
ing. Realizing tho need of education,
he entered Utah Agricultural Col
lege, graduating in 1104. Those years
at school were active for young Jar
dine. He was up and doing and active
in sports. He played four years on
the varsity football team, captaining
it the last year. During the summer
he pitched hay and worked on dairy
farms. One summer he was out with
a surveying gang.
Farm to Washington.
After graduation he taught for a
year, then sought and obuined the
job as manager of a farming company
which was tilling acres on the whole
sale plan in Utah. Then came his
flrat contact with government work.
He sought and secured a job as an
assistant in the cereal branch of the
Department of Agriculture. He work
ed there three years, from 1907 to
1910. Then he returned to the rug
ged west he knew so well, little real
ising or with little ground for hope
that fifteen years later he would re
turn to Washington to head the De
partment of Agriculture and sit as a
When he returned to the west in
1910 he was offered a professorship
at Kansas Agricultural College. Af
ter three years as professor of agron
omy he was made Dean of the Divis
ion of Agricultral and Director of
the Experiment Department. In 1918
he succeeded Dr. H. J. Waters as
president of the Kansas College. That
is the post he now leaves to become
Secretary of Agriculture.
Dr. Jardine is a rugged westerner
who will bring to Washington first
hand knowledge of agriculture. He
has always been an outspoken advo
cate of the farmers' Interests. He
is openly opposed and a foe to gov
ernment price-fixing on farm commod
ities. He runs counter to the views
of many men prominent in the Ag
riculture Department and the influ
ences of the farm bloc in congress.
What to Expect.
In plain words. Dr. Jardine U a
fighter. A polite but positive shake
up in the Department may be expect
ed. Such opposition as is thrown up
will meet a mental vigor credited
with a thorough acquaintance with
farm problems through a lifetime
spent in studying them.

At the end of the week the stock of

the naming of Jardine by President
Coolidge. It Is understood that Creel
is in complete accord with the views
of the new secretary and will vigor
ously carry out Jardine's policies.
Under Jardine, a radical change is
expected in the policy advocated by
the late Secretary, Henry C. Wallace.
Mr. Wallace favored the government
handling of surplus farm products
and for the virtual fixing of price.
Dr. Jardine is especially interested
in co-operative marketing. In address
he has said: "Only 10 of the trou
bles of the farmer can be remedied

James Hager, young son of Mr. and
Mrs. Osmin Hager, was injured quite
seriously in a runaway on Saturday
morning. He was coming down from
the field on the hill where he had
been to deliver a harrow, using the
wagon that had dump boards on.
These boards slid forward and struck
the team and they ran. The boy held
on pretty well, but when the team
made a turn at the feed yards near
the north end of Chase street, he was
thrown and struck by a wheel. Sev
eral stitches were necessary to close
the cuts on his head, but fortunately
no bones were broken.
Sheepmen and farmers are thank
