O. Preus, who is general chairman of the Minne- sota Dairy eomrnittee, and were an- nounced here bv R. E. Hilton, general! secretary of tie Saint Paul Associa-I tion.

Committee representatives from this city will act in co-operation with the Minnesota Dairy Show commit- tee in outlining and carrying into ef- fect its program for more creameries, more cows, better cows, and better sires, thruout the farms of the North- west. Secretary Hilton said in this connection: "We want you to know that Saint Paul is strongly behind this dairy movement, its business men realizing that the Northwest can grow commercially only as the far- mers of the Northwest make their farms ,more profitable. We are all in partnership together, farmers and city folks, when it comes to any move- ment that means increased prosperi- ity. 2 Odessa Track Meet and Exhibit Pleased Many Maurice Chanberlain of Odessa won first place for the boys, and Laura Reindl first place for the girls at the annual track meet of the Odes- sa Public Schools, held on Wednes- day at the school athletic field.

Farm Remember the chinch bug and the havoc it used to do season after sea- son in grain fields ? or a dozen or 15 years no authentic reports of the presence of this bug in Minnesota have been received at University Faxm, according to A. G. Ruggles, state entomologist. This 10ng silence has now been broken. Persons at Bagley in Clearwater county, north- ern Minnesota, have forwarded to Mr. Ruggles a small consignment of gen- uine chinch bugs which were found in clearing next to" cultivated fields. The chinch bug is a small black and' white bug which kills the grain stalk by feeding upon and sapping its juices. When all the small grain worlds in the vicinity have been con- qttered, it turns its attention to the growing corn, and is capable of do- ing great damage in corn fields. The state entomologist warns far- mers to be on their guard against re- currence of this pest and to ,make prompt report to him if the bugsare anywhere found in large numbers. Big Stone-Traverse Old Settlers to Hold. Frolic To go back into the early history of Big Stone and Traverse "counties when prairie schooners were in vogue, in place of limousines of today, when telephones and wireless mssages' were broadcasted in length dependent upon the lungs of the sender, and when walking was not taken primari ty for the benefit derived from exer- cise, will be a part of the recollec- tions when the Old Settlers of the two counties meet for a general" old- time "hand-shake" at Graceville in June. The exact date of the gathering has not been announced up to .this time. It is planned t5 hold the affair, vehich will be in the natu of a-picnic, in connection with a dedication of the Toqua Lake State Park and officers of the association hope to have pres- ent many visitors of distinction, in- cluding Governor Preus. tion. The plan is expected to further en- dear Minnesota to motorists and tra- velers who come here from other states to enjoy the recreational ad- vantages of the lake country. The Ten Thousand Lakes Associa- tion will start its program with a talk to the traffic officers in the twin cities on stated days. These addresses will be printed and mailed later to every police department in Minnesota and the rules for handiing the tourists thus will be uniform. Traffic officers will be asked to watch carefully for out-of-state tour- ists and answer all questions or di- rect the inquiries to the proper source of information. This system of co- ordination is expected to result in a doubling of tourist business in Minne- sota and  will do away with the many complaints made by visitors about treatment accorded them by traffic officers not only to the twin cities but in other cities of the state, in the past. On Saturday morning the Milwau- kee road ran a special train as sec- ond section to the Olyrnpiar No. 16, to accommodate the extra travel westward. It had been rumored that the company intended to rur a train dailyas second sectionto sixteen but verification of the report ha not been officially made.
