Coons, plants •pathologist at the Michigan' Agricul-f* tural College-! Crop estimates iiowt indicate one of the largest potato] crops produced in recent years, and! Michigan -will rank second in qiidft-1 tity only to New York, and second tq; none an quality. "Many factors enfcar into the pata4 to situation", says Dr. Coons, "and one would be rash, indeed, who at-; tempted to advise the farmers wheth-J; er to" hold W sell. It is likely that much of the crop will he held, for later delivery, however, and proper handling and storage is practically vital for this portion of the crop. "Whether the crop is moved .at onCje or held ih storage, the farmer must exercise care jn handling, pro-j tect from frost, and prevent deterioration, A common fault in the past has been to injure seriously by- bruises or wounds( in handling.. In addition serious loss (from - rotting arises from warm, moiist storage- conditions. . ' ■■■'.--." "The cardinal principle Is "to pno- vide ventilation and to keep the xn- hers cool. The black heart condition which developed so maikedly last season may he avoided if the tubers are well aerated and do not get too warm. The potato, even -at the lowest o'fferinig- of this uncertain fall market, is worthy of -careful handling." •' FIRE PREVENTION DAY SATURDAY, OCTOBER, 1) In a single year 20,000 'lives and §325,000,000.00 were lost hy lire, is the statement of the National Board of Fire Underwriters, who are backing a nation wide movement far the observance of Hire Protection Day. ■October 9. Mosit of the fires that occur are preventable. The general character of Fire Prevention Day is three-fold. First, that of arousing the public to a sense- of the importance of the subject and of its own responsibility. Second, that of instructing the pub- lie as to the precautions to be observed. Third, that of accomplishing definite results, such as cleaning up premises, -promoting inspections, removing hazards, etc. Ohservattion of the Fire prevention Day began in 1911, and last year it was designated in 33 states hy governor' proclamations.

MICHIGAN GRAINS TO COMPETE AT CHICAGO State Growers Making Effort tp Better Last Year's Fine Record at International. Announcement that 'the International Hay amd Gralin Show will be held at Chicago again this year, in connection with the International Live Stock Show, November 27 to December 41, has claused many Michigan farmers to start -preparation of exhibits for the big competition. Hope that state growers; will be able to better tbqir splendid record of last year is being expressed by local Men, who believe that Michigan grains can lead their classes at the International. "Michigan was well represented at the Chicago show last year," says A. L. Bibbins, secretary of the Michigan Crop Improvement Association, Wiith the result tttiat state crops won recognition and distinction. This was particularly true in the case of red rock wheat and rosen rye, both of which won a large number of prizes in Uheir class, "Competition of this kind is valuable for the state, in that it acquaints thousands of people -with' Michigan's crop production. It is advisable that we start early to prepare our exhibits. Tliose who have good quality grain, clover, alfalfa, etc., should make selections of the same inline near future and get ready for the International. Corn growers in particular should make selections early." Ten thousand dollars in prizes was distributed at the show last year, and a similar amount will be put up this fall. Those who are interested in sending an' exhibit to the International should communicate at an early date with A. L. Bibbins, Farm Crops Department, M. A. C, Bast Lansing. Woman's Club Meeting , On .Tuesday .afternoon ,o£ this w-efek L.hg Saline Woman's Club was delightfully entertained ait the home of the new president, Mrs!. Wfaodbridge. Twenty-seven members and one guest were present Roll call was responded to by the subject "Improvements I Would Like to se% Made in Saline.'' Some of them were as follows: Better # roads on Michigan avenue, a much needed rest room, all the lots in Oakwood cemetery kept mntm. a skating park, an office room for our resident nurse, a better community spirit, etc. These and many more responses brought forth considerable discussion. The program of the afternoon opened with a- piano solo by Mrs. Taylor, This was follow|e!d by the president's address, who in ,a few well chosen worlds gave a cordial welcome to all present. She also gave a brief outline of the wfork and coopesration she djesired to have during the year that lies before -us. The club wasi then favored with hrief histories of the work done by the past presidents, Mrs. Kate Weiennett, Mrs. Anna Miller, Mrs. Unterkircher,'-.Mrs. George Barr, and Mrs. Caroline Burkhart. These papers brought out many interesting events that hapipiened in the early days of oiir dub, as well as those that had taken place up to tihe present time, A letter was read, also pictures shown, of tha French orphan boy, tnat is being taken care of by our club. Piano duet by Misses Mills and' Smith was very much enjoyed by all. After singing our club song we adjourned for a social - hour, and it certainly proved to be one. At the close Of the' hour the hostess in her most gracious manner invited the ladles to the dining i-oonv where a delicious two-course luncheon was served, the club, colors, yellow and white,- being carried out in both courses. -The' ,guests at a late hour departed for their homes, each feeiing that it was a "President's Day" lon'g ro be rembered.
