Milnor, president of the Grain Stabilization Corporation, said today. "This is equivalent to less than three weeks' average consumption of wheat in the United States and it is, therefore, obvious that stabilization stocks are not now in any sense an important market factor." , On March 8th the congress gave to the Red Cress 40,000,000 bushels of Farm Board wheat which the thea previously had beeja.,bojij.5hJ;-JGrain Stabilization Corporation. up to July 1st. the Red Cross had taken delivery on approximately 25,000,000 bushels of this wheat. "The new allotment of 45,000,000 bushels thus makes available to the Red Cross about 60,000,000 bushels of wheat, which, considering the annual per capita consumption at approxi mately five bushels, will meet the needs of about 12,000,080 persons per year, less any quantity that may be utilized for livestock feed, as provided in the bill," Mr. Milnor said. "Wheat available to the Red Cross is stored at different points in the United States, principally in the central and eastern parts. The wheat will be available to the Red Cross at any time upon its application, approved by Tremonton Lions Club met at their regular meeting, WedDon Fishburn and nesday evening. Reed Taylor rendered the musical part of the program, with trumpet duets. 1 revious to the luncheon reports of the devastating hail storm that had visited the valley, coupled with the closing of the bank a week previous, had considerably sobered the den, of the king of beasts. The regular routine of business was carried on and it looked for a few moments that a Lions meeting was about to fall flat, when C. J. Dewey, sensing the situatoin, ventured the Idea that what this club and this community needed during the trying times in which we were passing is a sense Jbumor and arereational program to take "aw'ay the depressed and downcast feeling, prevalent all over the country at this time and referred to the M.

Hall, Monday evening, in answer to a call from the temporary depositors committee, for the purpose of hearing reports and organizing a permanent committee. After some discussion it was moved that the temporary committee become a part of the permanent 'committee and that other communities be represented by the appointment of men by Box Elder County Is Second in Tree Planting in State this committee. the a fcrief statement of the condition of the Herbert Taylor, representing State Banking Department ankr whie-ah- o , made farr $s that., assets and liabilities are concerned Nvas at the time of its closing in good condition and that lack of ready cash, with which to do business, was the only serious trouble, this haying been caused by heavy withdrawals during the last 30 days. Three plans were briefly laid before the people, with respect to the bank. The one was reorganization by the subscription of capital stock, in the amount of $25,000, added to the liability of the stockholders, which if 100 was paid would be $25,000, the holding of 10 of the deposits and the payment of the balance deferred over a period of years, not to exceed 20 per year. Another plan was to try and get another institution to take over the assets of the bank and pay the de positors off, which of course would leave the community without a bans. The other, and only alternative in case the other two failed, would be the liquidation by the State Banking Department. The large majority of the depositors favored the reorganization of the bank; if possible. Since the mass meeting the committee met in its' first meeting and aa 'composed of the following: From L. 'Sr1and, Harold Persson, Cecil and Hyrum Jensen; from Fred Gephart, Dr. Jay M. Schaffer, David Holmgren, O. P. Bates Israel Hunsaker, Jr., Paul Heitz and James Walton. Added to this group, by the committee were Harry Drew, west; Victor L. Hansen and P. S. Jensen, south and A. D. Hunsaker, east, making every part of the valley represented. In the reorganization of the committee James Walton was made permanent chairman with Harold Persson, of Garland, as secretary. James Walton, David Holmgren and Paul Heitz were named as a committee to contact outside interests in the hope that they could be induced to come and look over the conditions of the bank and furnish capital, along with what would be subscribed here in the valley, for the reorganization and opening of the bank. Since going into the assets and the liabilities of the bank tke committee is very optomistic that a new organization can be formed and that because of the condition of the bank, which is to say at least, it is in fair, if not good condition, that outside capital could be interested in opening it up. The committee is working diligently n every avenue open and hope to have something definite to report in ."' a very short time. Pin-73- During the last three years, 55,834 young foit trees have been planted on Utah farms in potential windbreaks shelterbreaks and woodlots, according to figures just compiled by Paul M. Dunn, forester for the Utah State College extension service. Planted with a spacing of eight by ten feet, this number has been set out on more than 100 acres of land, eighteen different varieties, which are recommended as being suitable for Utah growing conditions LOf this number 39,056 were deciduous or hardwood trees, while 16,778 were coniferous of evergreen seedlings. The plantings were made in 24 different counties of the state and were .distributed in 232 separate orders by the Forestry Department nursery of the college. The distribution is made at cost for farm planting, by section fonr of the law, authorized by the f eder- al government Salt Lake county led the state in this project, by making 56 different plantings of 19,239 trees, of which 11, 380 were hardwoods, and 7859 were conifers. In leading during the three-yea- r period, this county lead the state for the number of trees planted during 1930 and 1932, and placed second in .. ,' Clark-McNa- i ry 1931. ....... ed y . - The bill just signed by the President makes the 45,000,000 bushels of wheat available to the Red Cross "for use in providing food for the needy and distressed people, and in providing feed for livestock in the 1932 crop failure areas, after the needs for human consumption have been taken care of." It further provides that "wheat or the products thereof may be milled or processed into or exchanged for flour of any kind, bread of food, providing, in making such exchange, preference shall be given whenever practicable to foods of which wheat products are substantial ingredients." for' the period was The runner-u- p Box Elder county with 41 plantings totaled 8346 trees. Weber county was third with 5000 trees being set out in 11 plantings. Weber, also, lead the state in 1931. Utah county was fourth with 19 plantings, of 3221 trees; Duchesne county, fifth with 24 groves of 3111 trees; and Juab county, sixth with four plantings of 2610. The other counties included in the project and the number of trees set out during the period are as follows: Beaver, 950; Cache, 2087; Carbon,1625 Davis, 1175; Emery, 525; Garfield,100; Iron, 925; Millard, 1213; Morgan, 350; Rich, 650; San Juan, 230; San Pete, 550; Sevier, 100; Summit, 285; Tooele, 1575; Uintah, 777; Wasatch, 100; and Washington, 990.

His suggestion was readily accepted I and one of the most enjoyable half , hours experienced by the club follow ed, in which every conceivable sport and health-givin- g recreation was proposed for the docile Lions. Out of all this merriment came a definite organized plan for greater recreational and social activities for the club. The first activity under this new program will be a water melon bust and swim at the Udy Hot Springs, Wednesday, July 27th, at which the wives of the club members and all other business men who de sire, are cordially invited to attend. Baseball, horseshoe pitching and other sports will help occupy the time. 'A. resolution was passed strongly endorsing the activity of the depositors committee of the Tremonton Banking Company, in working for the reorganization and reopening of the bank and it was duly pointed out that Lion President T. A. Supan, in the name of the club, called the first meeting, at which the temporary com mittee was chosen, and that the Lions would lend their moral and financial support in every way consistent and work with the depositors committee when called upon in furthering their plan for a bank. 25,000 Shares Poultry Stock to be Redeemed Approximately 8,000 Utah poultry-me- n will participate in returns from the distribution of some $60,000 in cash and credit to be made soon by the Utah Poultry Producers' Cooperative association, it is announced by Clyde C. Edmonds, association general manager, y Of the total about $25,000 shares will be distributed by the association in the redemption 25,000 shares of its capital fistock held by members. The other $35,000 will be set up to the credit of poultryraen who have patronized the association's feed department. The credits given the patrons of the feed department will be subject to redemption in cash or feed at a later date. Thi3 $35,000 represents the feed department's earning for the past year. Notices have been prepared and are now being sent out informing stockholders that the Association stock certificates bearing the date of January 3, 1927, will be redeemed at par value, which is $1 per share, when presented at the Poultry association's offices, 1800 south West Temple Street, Salt Lake, anytime after July 1, 1932. Interest on this stock for the six months will doubtless be paid when the Association's board of directors declares the annual dividend on the ff'-aom- first of January, 1933. ' Retirement of 'stock is" part of the association's plan of maintaining its operating fund at the desired level by a revolving method. A nominal deduction of one cent per dozen eggs is made by the association from the selling price of eggs and stock bearing eight per cent interest is issued to the members in return and in pro portion to their accumulated deduc tions The total amount of deductions represent the association's operating capital and the stock given represents the members' respective financial interest in the association. Since the association's operating fund has now reached the desired size, under, the plan the stock will be retired in the of its issuance at about the same Day order rate of good speed that new stock is issued, it is explained Dairymen of Utah should be interested in the first annual Utah State Mr. and Mrs. O.

On the other hand some growers have not thinned. It is not yet too late to thin, and I would like to suggest that all do so at once. Nature has set on an abundant crop. Many trees are carrying from one-- i lf more fruit .than fourth to should be permitted to remain. A fruit tree, in its attempt to reproduce, very often, when weather conditions do not interfere, sets many more fruits than it is capable of maturing without sacrificing size. When this is true, we must remove some of these fruits to stimulate size in the balance remaining. In some of the more successful stone fruit sections such as Marysville and Loomis in northern California, the successful peach grower thins his peaches from six to eight inches apart. Our experience here has taught us that the operation of thinning can be done for from ten to twenty cents per tree, according to the size of the tree. While on this fruit tour, managers of the large grading and packing plants, brokers and dealers in Oregon, and the large wholesale and retail markets of California, have told me that the one paramount criticism of Utah peaches is that they lack size. Growers, let me appeal to you once more to thin your peaches this year, even if you do nothing more than break up the clusters. Robert II. Stewart, County Agi. Agent A one-ha- Bp. W. W.

Poultry Association Ships Car of Cockerels A carload of cockrels was loaded at the local plant of the Utah Poultry Producers Association Wednesday for shipment to California. The car contained 1000 birds which were of fine quality. The price for this product is at the present time at low ebb along with other commodities and no doubt these birds were raised at a very small profit to the producer. Mrs. J. S. Stoddard Stoddard of Rfchmond, Thorriley of Smithf ield, guests of Mr. and Mrs. and Mr. Noel and Mrs. J. D. were week-en- d Guy Johnson. Men stood grim faced and silent while women wept as they viewed the wreckage and havoc left in the wake of one of the worst hail storms known in the history of the valley, Wednesday afternton. The storm struck out in the southwest of the valley, near Penrose, and took a strip, coming north and east, of about a mile and broadened as it swept up through the valley. Striking about a mile north of Garland, it swept on to the east and north, reaching as far as the, ridge north of Plymouth. It appears that it spent its worst furry in the northern part of the valley, where the editor drove in eifcler to get an accurate description of the damage done. Beautiful fields of grain, beets, hay, potatoes, peas and other crops, which according to observations made, were the best of any in the past ten years, were laid in ruin and so completely that the only way the kind of crop could be determined on the field, that is row crops, was by the size of the furrow in the fields. Trees, in places, were stripped practically as bare as in winter time; saga brush stood stripped of its leaves and bark and even the cedar posts were stripped of their bark. In Plymouth considerable damage is reported to out buildings (shede and coops) which were unroofed by the driving wind that accompanied the hail. One building was completely picked up and placed in another mans lot. Many of the west windows of the homes were broken out. On the hills west of Riverside it was reported that one family had the table set for the noon day meal and the hail broke the windows out and some of the dishes on the table. On the surrounding hills great torrents of water came rushing down, bringing debris and rocks with it it upon the fields and land. The water completely filled the Malad river and the large canals to overflow- ing. The mud and debris was so thicfc that the water could hardly run. Not a farmer in the wake of the storm has a vestage of crop left with the exception of hay, that of course will grow up again. Even the grazing lands on the hills were destroyed by the hail beating the foliage into the ground. Fielding was struck only light in the town proper but north ef the canal the storm seemed to strike in its worst furry. Several small homes had been purchased from the Sugar Company and moved to this location this spring. The windows were broken in all of them and the homes belonging to Mr. Allred and Mr. Lott were completely demolished. Their furniture and belongings literally ruined and the occupants in the latter home escaped injury only by a miracle. Hundreds of sea gulls in this vicinity are lying dead, which were killed by the large hail stones. Turkeys and chickens were also killed in great numbers. South and west of Tremonton the storm struck in the vicinity of the farms of Joseph Stokes and Ray Por-rit-t, taking a northeasterly direction up through John T. Anderson and R. A. Christensen farms and on north. The writer met a car of travelers coming from the north, where it was impossible to pass and as soon as he had stopped his car he hastened to tell of his experiences of the terrific storm they had been in and added, "If these are not the last days, I am not a prophet" He undoubtedly has experienced the furry of the elements and how helpless he was while it raged. He told of the hail stones being from 1 to 1J inches in diameter and of the havoc they had wroght along the way. v As the skies cleared and the sun dicame out, the beautiful fields versified crops which had waved in the breezes a few hours before, had like magic, vanished and In their place were only the shreds of the foliage pounded into the mud. It was a pitiful sight. There is, perhaps, time to plaat in some of the land quick maturing crops that could be harvested before the frosts come and where the storm was less furious perhaps there are some fields of beets and potatoes that Holds Annual Outing at Hermitage Og-de- Bate-ma- n, Recreational Courses at .
