Now comes the report that in our state, in Grantsville, they are experiencing a dust storm of some proportions and at the same time the people of the state are warned that the continued cutting down of the trees and orchards will make the conditions ideal for wind and dust storms, and in the future if this practice continues we will find ourselves in the same condition as those that prevail in the middle west.

One bank has loaned, under plan. the plan, $4000, the average loan being for $400 and the average time being three years.

Christensen, o field superintendent of, . the Sugar company, Box Elder county will fall short of the control allotment of last year's acreage. It is expected that 9000 acres will have been signed by April 15th, Last year 13,000 acres were planted, but pracnt tically only the beets from the type of beet produced in Utah were harvested. The tonnage on this strain sown in the worst blight and drouth on record yielded very well, averaging over twelve tons per acre where the beets were planted early enough to get started under the adverse dry conditions which existed last year. Mr. Christensen stated that only beet seed of this variety is being issued to Box Elder growers in the event there should be white fly prev alent this year. Some of the reasons for reductions have resulted from a recent wide distribution of a forecast of fly in cer tain areas by an agricultural colleeo entomologist, without statins the fa vorable side of the conditions. These constitute sufficient blight resistant seed produced by another branch of tne agricultural department which has proved marvelously resistant to aisease, ana tne much Improved soil, water and temperature conditions as adversely affecting fly population this year, xnese ractors are going to be favorable also to tomato production. A plentiful supply of beet labor for thinning beets is evident. Hundreds of boys and men are Inquiring about the employment they want in beet work, and the beet growers association has set a scale of pay that la better than last year, due to the increased price which will be paid for beets under the allotment program. Mr. Christensen added that the outlook for the beet farmer is much better this yeai than last: that the gov ernment seems to have control of production and importation.' which has brought the price of sugar in the .last month steadily upward. A good price ior Deeis is tne same as guaranteed. The large crowd that filled the auditorium of the high school were thrilled and delighted with the grand musical festival presented, under the direction of C. C. Watkins by the high school and district school bands of the valley, held Friday evening of last week. The performance of the "D" band captivated the audience, who showed their appreciation for the accomplishment of these young boys and girls by their continued applause. The "A" band handled some very difficult pieces and also received hearty applause In recognition of their accomplishment. The soloists were all good with one n or two outstanding. Professor of the U. S. A. C, complimented Director Watkins and his players and also offered constructive criticism to the band, as well as to the soloists. He called attention to the fact that to have a successful band there must be ample instrumentation, which Is lacking In this organization due to lack of funds and not boys and girls who are capable and anxious to play them. The girls and boys glee clubs, under the direction of Geo. O. Nye, were praised by Professor Christensen for their numbers. Mr. Watkins and his "D" band will participate at Ogden on April 12 arid 13, at the music festival for northern Utah. The "A" band goes to Provo next week. The soloists who performed during the concert and those who will perform at Ogden and Provo are Cole Winzeler, saxaphone; Emma Gardner, cornet; Reed Johnson and Rex Laub, trombone; Junior England and Rich ard Anderson, clarinet; Reed Taylor, cornet; and Shirley Beard, trombone The glee clubs will also contest at the festival.
