Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - June 14, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma r This Week By Arthur Bricbait* LONG UFE TO THEM. DOWN GOES WHEAT; WHAT WILL LABOR DO? MACHINERY PLUS POWER. You hope that ftae'* young couple will live many years happily; and- everybody knows that you meari Colonel Lindbergh and his wife. ' ,, � There is happiness in being well known, and well liked for good reasons, and young Lindbergh possesses it. Without exception, the entire world wishes him well. The price of wheat dropped to 97 1-4 cents some days ago. . Lowest price since 1914. For the Federal Reserve and the combined forces of usury to attack stock values makes no difference. Only wicked gamblers buy stocks. XDAIR CdfcNTt'S LEADING NEWSPAPER mm. VOLUME NUMBER 32. stilwell, Oklahoma, Friday, june 14, 1929. NUMBER 19. GRAPE OUTLOOK FOR OKLAHOMA IS DISCUSSED Says That Adair County Has Largest Acreage Planted in ;�� State. But the'conduct of the Federal Reserve will attract President Hoover's attention, if wheat, cotton and other farm products.continue dropping. It is embarrassing to take office on a "save the farmer" platform andjfind that your Federal Reserve is hitting the wheat and cotton growers , on the head. Labor appears to have won the Brit-� ish election. British Labor is socialistic, much of it communistic, but of mild communism. Imagine the panic in dear old Wall street and every well organized financial mind if Labor and Socialism controlled the government of this country. But the British will-manage. They "muddle through'/ because they have common sense and British Labor has honest, intelligent leaders. Ramsay MacDonald is as good a man . as there is in Britain, although not as great or able a -statesman as Lloyd George. The motto of the Pacific Coast seems to be: "If you haven't got a thing, get it." The city of Stockton, the San Joaquin and Sacramento valleys can produce enough food'to feed a great part of the world. But the place needs a harbor for ships, and will have it. Stockton, the State of California and the Federal government this year will dig a deep water channel to the sea, and Stockton will have a harbor "big enough to hold 90 per cent of the ships that come through the Golden Gate. No one knows what the future of the Pacific Coast will be, or what the size of inland harbors built will be* wherever men want them. Mr. George E. Moore of No. 52 Van-derbilt avenue, New York City, can tell about an electric shovel that digs fifteen cubic yards of earth at 'one bite. You can dig out another Lake Michigan with a tool like that. Given machinery, PLUS POWER, everything is possible. ROY CLINES Roy Clines, 48 years old, died at his home in the Oak Grow community Friday, June 7, fbllowjag a short illness.

The youth vwttl not serve that terau how. tr. t�& issuance of Writ of Pro* B. A. T. Burge (In State Marketing Bulletin) The one fruit possible to grow in Oklahoma is the grape. That it is adapted to Oklahoma is evidenced by the growth of wild grape in every section of the state, There is not a section of the state that cannot produce enough grapesfor its population and then some, to spare. The Western half of the state has good local markets for . an unlimited supply of grapes and many sections have already determined the varieties profitable to grow .there. The Markle Vineyards at Lawton an-for vineyards and six ton yields are not uncommon. _ " >. Phil Hprton, living in" Craig county', has a sever! acre .vineyard from which he has harvested as high as six tons of grapes per acre. A. L. Kauffman has a fifty-acrefarm north of the little town of Ketchum in Craig county. Mr. Kauffman paid $7.00 per acre for Jihis farm. He got cuttings from a neighbor and grew three and one-half acre vineyard. Every year this vineyard nets him more money than the farm originally cost. Of course most people who have planted grapes in Oklahoma on com-;mercial scale have failed to make money, but with the possible exception of two years, die fault was one of the grower's instead o fthe crop. At Westville last year, West & Jones had a ten acre vineyard which they harvested and shipped 15 thousand baskets. Besides these they sold many in bushel baskets and left probably a car load in the vineyard. Jas. Leake had a twoacre vineyard on land, the like of which can be bought for $5.00 per acre in many sections. 'This vineyard yielded better than four, tons per acre. Spencer Tharp had a three acre vine-yar dwith the second crop from which he harvested four, tons per acre. There are a number of factors that play an important part in financial success of commercial grape growing. The choice of site of the vineyard is important. The site needs to be well drain ed. Just a fourth of the vineyard on poorly drained soil, causes loss from a failure of this portion to ripen evenly with balance of vineyard. Size of vineyard is another factor. One acre to three and one-half acre vineyards usually make the highest . acre returns. Varieties planted are; important. Unless one has a. good local demand, it is not wise to set more than two varieties and probably then one variety is better. Vineyard manageenmt plays a very important role in production of a high quality product which always demands a fair price. The last important factor is that of a. growers' marketing organization. When the . commercial growers are unorganized and sells as an individual. Last year twjo towns, 20 miles apart,  in Oklahoma, around which graeps were grown in commer cial quantities, market their grapes-one of the groups was an organization, and the other group of growers marketed individually. The. first group delivered, their grapes to the shipping shed, had them inspected and clasified, loaded into refrigerator cars and then1 shipped them out to the markets. The second group brought in their grapes and sold most of them/to buyers who loaded them into cars and sent them tp market. This group got their money on the barrel head and all grades, brought the same price. The first group had: to waVfor then- money but got appro*!- 2 MEN INJURED IN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT HERE Arkansas Men Sustain Injuries When Car Plunges Off Embankment At Railroad Crossing. - ;) . , i wtwtiTiwiurT- iTfi \ rvn One hundred seventy-two hour*"and thirty-two minutes!

It was just after dark and the road was new to the men who happened to be looking at the speedometer' when they reached the curve just below the crossing. "We were traveling, about 35 mfleB an hour and came upon the crossing unexpectedly^ We tried to make the curve but the car pluged off the embankment just before' �r�" got- to the railroad," Mr. Turner-.saidin.dJscussing the accident. The windshield was broken out and the top demolished on the car. Other minor damage was done to the car ^nd the men say that, tine fact that the windshield was of non-shattering' glass probably saved them ' severe injury: from flying glass. , � � , Mr. Parker states that this sale; is for the purpose of getting more people acquainted with the quality merchandise manufactured by the Penslar company and sold here by the Stil-wejl Drug store. � � s -m ": - -:c C.

He will keep his other gins in operation here, during the season. mately 5c per basket or $150.00 more per car by their method of marketing. Their reputation for quality of product is high, for they would not allow low quality to go into the car. .." There is still room for good grape growers in. Oklahoma. If they will take into consideration the factors that make for success. The sooner the careless grower quits the better off will be-the industry.; Western Oklahoma can profitably grow enough grapes to supply local demand. Eastern Oklahoma should adopt at least better vineyard practices and increase acreage in sections where the production is too large for local consumption and too small in volume for profitable shipment. Watts has more and prettier flowers in the yards of many homes than has ever been seen here before. We have just come from the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Davis where an Ammi Roy Golden hued dahlia is in bloom. One of the flowers- measured nearly i eight inches, across. Another purple-hued dahlia was in bloom, almost as large, with others a close second- in size. The bulbs of these fine flowres came from Colorado and were sent to Mr. and Mrs. Davis by their daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Hay good, who live there. Dr. Davis probably has the finest collection of flowers in Watts and makes a specialty of raising roses for the market. He has just finished a water lily pond, the first in town.

C, June 12- Congressman Hastings, in discussing the conference report on'the Farm bill, emphasized the importance of five amendments added to the bill in conference, which friends of agriculture attempted to have inserted when the bill was originally up-in the house for consideration. Two amendments .related to the chairman of the board. The bill. as it passed the house made the term of the chairman' indefinite and was a continuing threat of removal held over" his head. The bill also authorized the Pres ident to fix the salary of the chairman, which would be used as a dangerous precedent in all subsequent legislation. The present bill fixes the term of the chairman the same as it does with reference to the other members, and fixes his salary. The third amendment fixes the rate of interest on loans from the revolving fund at the current rate which the government pays on its obligations, hot to exceed four per cent. The bill, as it passed the house, left the rate to be fixed by the board. The fourth amendment makes it certain that loans may be made from the revolving fund to cooperative associations for advances to its members pending the marketnig\pf ;-^eir farm pro-^ ducts. The language fa the" original bill was indefinite and uncertain upon that point The fifth amendment was jhe, takfag of the board from withont.'^^epart-ment of agriculture and' thereby� e^b-lishing itas a� mdepelrfemt-tpftrd, |d* ding to its p^tiig^^^ it would rnotNb^ entirely.'1^}ffi^**'m"''' board, Four marriages are recorded in the,/' Standard-Sentinel for the issue of g June 13, 1919: .
