With the yearly increase expected, Minnesota must prepare to take care of thousands of additional touriscs next summer, it was pointed out at the offices of the Ten Thousand Lakes As- sociation. Plans for the year's work of the as- sociatiq will be mapped out at the meeting in Duluth.

In competition with apple growers of a dozen other states, including states like Michigan, Illinois, and In- diana, which are commonly thought to be more in the apple belt than is Min- nesota, D. C. Webster and Henry Voll- enweider of Houston county, Minne- sota, won six out of ten sveepsfles at the expositiQn. Mr. Webster, who lacked but 12 points of winning the sweepstakes prize for the entire show, was awarded sweepstakes for the best single barrel, the best single box, the best five trays, and the best bushel. Mr. Vollenweider captured the sweep- stakes for the best five bushels and the best ten trays, They exhibited De- licious and Northwestern Greenings principally. Apples from the Webster orchard took 25 firsts and two seconds in a total of 28 classes in which they were entered. The triumphs of the Minnesota ap- ple growers were duplicated by Minne- sota potato growers. Minnesota ex- hibitors won all four places on early Ohios, three out of four places on Green Mountains, and three out of four on Cobblers, or 10 places out of a possible 12.
