THE 2 TJTIGII praise for the services being rendered to the na- t tlon by the American Legion la expressed by Gov. Charles A. Templeton of Connecticut, in a recent letter to State Comman- der E. P. Armstrong. After expressing his sense of the great service which the men of the Legion gave their coun- try In time of war, Governor Templeton proceeds: "Your organization hns done good work in the past and I am persuaded that it will continue that good work. In the dlrec- tlou of combating propaganda and In other patriotic directions, the American Legion Is perform- Ing a great service. I trust that In every way and particularly In the matter of rendering service to your fellow men your organ!- zatlon will prosper, si jjj I J LEGION J (Copy for This Department Supplied by the American Lesion News Service.) GENERAL DRAIN HAS DONE GOOD SERVICE Oen. James A. Drain of Washington, C, prominent In activities of the American Legion since the Inception of that organization, was chosen to represent the Legion at the twentieth anniversary conference on child labor because of the Intense Interest which the Legion has always taken In the welfare of children and the solution f their problems. The conference was held at Washington In May, Just prior to the adoption by congress of the child labor amendment to the Constitution, which now goes to the states for ratification. General Drain was active at the two caucuses held In Paris at which the American Legion was conceived. He D. wns commander of the District of Columbia department of the Legion from May, 1920, to November, 1021. During the same period he was a member of the national executive committee. He was long chairman of the Fourth district rehabilitation committee. At the last national convention ol the Legion General Drain was one of the leading candidates for national commander. For several ballots he battled with John It. Qulnn, the present commander, for that high post. A lawyer by profession, General Drain has been located at Washington, D. C, for 15 years. He served In the National Guard of the state of Washington, rising from private to brigadier general. From 1001 to 1900 he wai adjutant general of the state of Washington. Interested In movements that made for the upbuilding of the national defense, General Drain took an actlvt part In the National Rifle association K v Jf J II J J $ jr x S $ A light leaped up on the top of a shuft In Madison square, says the New York World, to burn there steadily as a reminder to t lie living of the youth cut down on the battlefields of France, and of mothers who weighed the lives of their sons against the call to defend the nation's hurur and made the sacrifice. The "eternal light" shaft, gift of llodman Wanamaker, was hewn from 125-fo- century-olpine in the virgin forests of Oregon. It Is surmounted by a star and by a light that never will dim. A similar eternal light to th memory of war dead burns on tht grave of the unknown soldier, underneath L'Arc de Trlomphe in Paris. Gold star mothers and Congressional Medal wearers stood beside the hollow square of marines, soldiers and sailors around the shaft as Mr. Wanamaker unveiled the Inscribed pink marble base of the shaft. A salute to the dead reverberated from nrmy canBanner' non, and "The was played. "We give this shaft to the city of New York In the name of those mothers we worship, who gave us those heroes who paid the supreme sacrifice on the field of valor," Mr. Wanamaker said. "May It ever shine and be 8 guide to posterity In the interests of liberty and freedom." Mayor Hylnn, who made the speed of acceptance, declared he dedicated the shaft to the mothers who placeo their own flesh and blood on the nltat of sacrifice, and that he further dedl cated It to the Ideals of the American nation.

(Prepared by the United Statu Department of Agriculture.) Changes in the official grain stand- ards of the United States promulgated by Secretary Wallace, May 17, include the establishment of a new grade to be known as No. 1 hard spring to be s dark northern added to the spring of the grades for hard red spring, and the addition of a new provision for grades for mixed durum. The changes become effective August sub-clas- 15, 1924. Number 1 hard spring includes wheat of the class hard red spring, consisting of 85 per cent or more of dark, hard and vitreous kernels ; shall be cool and sweet and shall have a test weight per bushel of at least 60 pounds. Tha grade may contain not more than 14 per cent of moisture; not more than 1 per cent of foreign material other than dockage, which 1 per cent may Include not more than 0 of 1 per cent of matter other than cereal grains; not more than 2 per cent of damaged kernels, which may include not more than of 1 per cent of kernels; not more than 5 per cent of wheat other than hard red spring, which 5 per cent may include not more than 2 per cent of durum wheat and may contain not more than 5 per cent of wheat of the variety humpback. The new section providing grades for mixed durum reads as follows : Mixed durum shall be mixed wheat, consisting of 70 per cent or more of durum wheat other than the variety red durum and may contain not more than 5 per cent of soft red winter and white wheat, singly or combined. Mixed durum shall be graded according to the requirements of the grades for mixed wheat. The grade designation of mixed durum wheat shall be mixed durum, preceded by the number of the grade, or the words "sample grade," as the case may be. Other changes In the new regulations Include changes In the definition of tha terms wheat and cereal grains, grades for weevlly wheat, and a change In the definition of western red wheat and increase in test weight of this subclass. The special limitation against white wheat in wheat of other classes in grades Nos. 1 and 2 of all subclasses of hard red spring and hard red winter wheat Is eliminated, and a change is made In the grade designation of mixed wheat. Some changes are also made in the standards for corn, oats and rye. 0 d Not Necessary for Roof on Cement Manure Pita Where a manure pit Is built of cement and no real opportunity for the liquid manure to. leach away, there would be no real necessity of having a roof on the pit. However, one of the objects of a roof Is to have the manure In a place where It is not so objectionable and the ammonia does not evaporate so rapidly If the pit is closed in. However, this evaporation can be prevented providing the manure Is kept moistened. Where a gnyit deal of liquid manure Is obtained, wailch is usually the case In dairy barns, the manure would not dry out, especially If there was not too much bedding In It. If there was considerable bedding and not sufficient liquid manure going with the manure from day to day Into the pit. It would be necessary to use hose or some other means of wetting down the pile. With horse manure, which dries out very rapidly, It nearly always Is accompanied by a larga amount of dry litter and It Is very essential that the manure be packed and dampened frequently. This would also be true In dry times even though It had no roof. Unless a very good absorbent Is used for bedding, horse manure will go into the pit somewhat dry and consequently It needs a great deal of wetting down In order to prevent It from heating to such an extent as to dry it out.

Some people Insist that the cornfield Is the best germination tester, but It's likely to be pretty expensive. In the shifts of crop production, th wise plan usually la to find out which way the crowd la headed and go tha other way. Sudan grass has been gaining much popularity as a aummer hay crop. It makes very good hay and horses da well on It. Cultivate your garden thronghont the summer because, once you let tha garden go to weeds, yon will become discouraged and more apt to neglect It. Corrosive sublimate, 2 ounces, dissolved In hot water and 13 gallons of wntcr added, will make a medicated bath for seed potatoes. It kills tha scub s and other diseases as well. Poultry manure makes good fertilizer for almost any purpose. It Ii very high In nitrogen content and foi that reason Is good for garden crop and Is also good for melons.
