Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 3, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEW THE LETHBRroCE DA11.Y HERALW SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1918 OF INTEREST TO THE ON FARM NEAR CITY repreaentptlJBate make green tomatoes for the pickle market. \\"ltliin tpn days Messrs. Terrill and On-'June Cth Mcasra. TorrlU and Kerr "set out astiO tomato plants on the G,: O. Kerr farm about five miles east ai the city., Last evening, just 57 davs after planting,-the first pick-, , , ,. , -,,^ ,, ing Was staged and forty pounds of Kerr expect to be pickmg from oOO to excellent fruit, uniform in size and lOdO pounds of ripe tom.itocs daily, contour, were gathered.

The outddor-irown fruit is �C*l!aider6d superior to tho hothouse tomato and a sample of the fruit being grown on th6 Kerr farm will prove tjils. This is tho first tinte a serious attempt has been made In tho Loth-bridge irrigation district to grow tomatoes outdoors on a commercial scale, and Mr. Terrill Is highly elated over the success. From the four acres ft is expected more than eight tons of tomatoes will bo taken, and at the prevailing wholesale prices for tomatoes the returns will run well up Into tho hundreds per acre. The year has been iin excellent one for toilia-toes,*and arrangements are now being made to ward off th# frost which usually comes within tho liext month, so that the season will bo a long one. Smudges, will bo used for this purpose. One tomato was picked last evening whlqh weighed halt a poimd whilo green ones on the vine were tiieasur-cd which were over twelve Inches in circumference and will weigh over tho pound mark when rlpo. > ? ? ? SHOULD NON-FARMERS BE .? ADMITTED TO MEMBER-? SHIP? The above question raises'a very interesting point, viz., how far Is it wise to admit outside people, thai is, people not directly interested in farm' ing-into membership iu the association? In this connection one thing must be kept in mind. The United Farmers of Alberta is essentially an association of farmers and was organized to promote the interests of farmers,^ and this must be the touchstone In deciding every question of membership. The first consideration in every individual case must be whether or not the person In question is In sympathy with the ideal^ of the association. There are no doubt many non-tarraing people outside our association who, if admitted would be a source of strength. There are others whose admission would be detrimental, owing to the fact that their own private interests conflict with those of tho association. Itts necessary, therefore, In deciding these questlone, that, the character, business connections and sympathies of each indivld-4ial applicant should be taken into full consideration. .Mere friendship should certainly not be a deciding factor It our locals "are to be the power for good in their own communities that they might be. It is sometlmee pointed out in reply to this question tha.t bankers, lawyers, merchants or otlier professional . business kssoclatlons would not admit farmers to raember-ehlp, why then should farmetg admit them to their trade'or professional association? Some locals find.-that the presence of outsiders handicaps free discussion of; farmers' . problems. However, this matter is entirely in the hande of the locals, and must be left to their decision, but they would In all cases do well to keep the above considerations in mind. A small membership committee to de'cide upon, the standing of condidates for' admission before being admitted Sv-ould be . a good feature.
