:ISii Hi h
Let's All Do Our Be to Make
this Christmas a Merry One. We Need It
While it is true we are at war, and both as a Nation and as
individuals we are pledged to our last drop of blood - and our
last dollar to win this war, and it is worth every sacrifice we may be
called upon to make. . This is Our War because it is for humanity and
Freedom against brutality, oppression and greed. Our country has ev
er been champion for the right, and it is up to each one of us to do all
in our power to prosecute this struggle to the end that right will triumph and brute
force will be wiped out for good and all.
At the same time there is no reason why we should ignore the Christmas Season.
Christmas means a great deal to the World and to Each One of Us.
Our Children Need a Merry Xmas
and it won t hurt the old folks, so let's all get busy and spread the Christmas spirit as far
as we can. The price of good cheer has not gone up; a pleasant word and a smile re
main at the old prices; the supply is unlimited and there is no embargo on the distribu
tion of these good things. Here is one line you are not asked to Hooverize in.

Thompson Discusses Potato Grading
Parkdale, Ore., Dec 18, 1917.
Editor Glacier: In regard to Mr.
Grampa' potato spiel, I quite agree
with him on grading. But I did not
know Mr. Grampa was so high an
authority. I thought nrohahlv hn had
reference to the potatoes he bought in
me upper vaney. nr. Mteuey bought
about $22,000 worth of potatoes in the
Upper Valley, and he told me he had
nokick coming on grading and ouality.
It is very.hard to grade when you have
nothing to grade from.
