IDAHO POTATO iGETS SKINNED I. BOISE, IDAHO, tVt. 1G "A j Big Totato Gets Skinned At Cafe Show" headlined the October 6 Chicago Daily News. C. G. Price, field representative of the Idaho Advertising Commission, Commis-sion, mailed the paper to Agriculture Agricul-ture Commissioner Jas. B. Newport New-port from Chicago, where Rice is attending the National Restaurant Show on behalf of the Commission The Chicago paper's story, which shows what they . think of Idaho potatoes back there, continues: "A big, wide-eyed rural visitor from Idaho got thoroughly skinned today when the National Restaurant Restaur-ant Association's show and convention conven-tion opened in the Furniture Mart "It was an elephantine unbaked potato of the kind that only Idaho produces in-satchel-size proportions "A gentlemanly demonstrator dumped a pailfull of tubers of assorted as-sorted sizes into a peeling machine Surrounded by pygmy potatoes, the big Idahoan found itself in a fast merry-go-round in which it rubbed elbows with ordinary little red round fellers from Illinois and Michigan and some middle-weight Murphies from up Wisconsin way. Soon the hick potato looked like the biggest fighter in a battle royal. Bumped and pushed this way and that, it suddenly emerged from, the mixer conpletely nude. "Like so many golf balls,- the smaller potatoes thumped onto a pan, all of them having taken the same strip-tease treatment. The lime for undressing 'em-one minute, min-ute, thirty seconds." It's hard to keep Idaho potatoes out of the news, Newport commented.
