government to "clean up" archaic
methods still employed at the customs
"efficiency in business nnd in gov
ernments is quite the fad, she con
tinued. "Hut few men anil women thing
of employing it in the home. Let the
mother and father preach it and the
son and daughter will grow up with so
broad a knowledge that emciency ex
perts will not be necessary in the fu
tare. Let the mother start by bringing
up her daughter with a knowledge of
kitchen wastes; her son witn a knowl
edge of business affairs, and the sav
jiug nf pennies here and there.
j "Then let the schools start in where
ithe parents leave off. If there is one
place where the lesson of efficiency
can be well taught it is in the schools.
There has been much neglect of this
most import uit matter. The housewife
if fur too inefficient. She has no house
hold system. The high cost of living
could lie given a hard blow by the in

Extension of Time
At an informal meeting of the desert

project for three years on account of I ,
the attitude of the department of tho j
interior which the board considers a;
haiulicip to the development of the re-j

ment engineers decided that the lands j
now covered by this project were desert
lands and allowed the state to enter in
to contracts to develop these lands by
irrigation. Accordingly Morson took
up the project to irrigate abut 27,000
acres and now has 10,1100 .icres upoii
which sufficient water can be turned i
to produce crops. j

Recently, however, the interior del
should not be declared to be desert
lands until some future date. Then if
the lands were reported as not desert
lands the government could refuse pat

done until after the binds had actually
been reclaimed. The action of the
board today was taken in order to pro
tect Mr. Morson whom the board con

Morson asked permission to transfer
claims from the area which is held up
by the interior department to lands
which can be irrigated now in order
