This accident was preceded by tii
'i ceremony of the presentation of an
American Mac to the equadrilla by an
employe of the treasury department at
; Washington. French and American avla-
'. tora from aeveral equadrllla were pa-
raded on the flying grounds for the
rereroony which was a fine spectacle of
tha fraternity of two nations. The f-
Dou Alpine band played tha national
anthems of both countries.
! Before tha ceremony. Corporals Carci-
tU. Bridgeman. Hewitt. Htnkle and
Draxel were promoted to be sergeants for
bravery during recent operations. They

wounded in three places. He lost oon-

i. i. v.t too early to form
any definite conclusion about the winter
pricea of Irish poratoee. i w v ;
in Texas only to tha extent that they
may have a relation to sweet potato
prices. If they continue at U Pref"'
level through the early fall months tnay
will probably have a depressing affect
upon sweet potato pricea at the aaine
time but I can not believe that the de-
pression will continue far Into tha spring.
Certain it is that sweet potato In the
fresh state marketed in the early fall are
likely to be tower than profitable but It
is almost equally certain that sweat po-
tato stored and dried by the wall-tested
government process which hss been suc-
cessfully practiced ra Texas can be mar
keted to one advantage eany
I have on my deak here In Washington a
basket of sweet potato grown on the
department's Arlington farm In Ills hr-
veated and put In storage earlyJa Octo-
ar H mmnvsd oa June la of thla year.
They are In perfect condition and they
would have sold at any time during the
late winter and spring of 1917 at tl.25 to
ti ka nor tmahel. Thev were stored in a
hnuan constructed on the government
plana with which East Texas poraio
growers are more or leas ramiuar.
We had tbe same experience with at
least II such large storage boueea In
Texas last fall and winter and there waa
difficulty in only one or two Instances
where the directions for harvesting and
storage were not properly observed. On
the whole the storea iww pwiuot tpi
well and sold at a very proniaoie price.

I am hopeful that within two or three
weeks or possibly within as many days
the food production bill now pending will
become a law and with its additional ap
propriation aeveral additional men wiu
be employed ror this particular service in
Texas In any case it is easy for busi
ness men or. farmers associated in group
preferably business men and farmers
working together to obtain these plans
and to be guided by the printed matter
which Is freely Issued. This plan 01

There la nothing secret about It and. if
we can make It the rule In Texas our

will yield highly satisfactory prices to
Allusion haa been made In Texas papers
to plans of the bureau of animal industry
to facilitate tne sale or nigh grade oeei
heifers from the West now going to
slaughter for varied economic reasons to
formers in East Texas and in the South
Thla undertaking can not be initiated
until the emergency appropriation passes
and makes funds available but meanwhile
much work can be done in advance by
way or pusiiclty and especially by way
of ascertaining from the cattle raisers of
the West general idata upon which the
department will be able to work. Indeed
it would be quite worth while tr.r the
rattle raisers' association of Texas and
for other groups of citlxens in the cattle
isislnr regions to make a sort of survey
of the high grade heifers that may be
tvailable within the next few months for
breeding purposes. This Information may
he conveyed to the extension office at
(. oilege station or may be held for in-
ir tne nign grade she cattle now going
io mantel can oe diverted to the farmers
the effect will be two-fold towit. imme
diately to give the-cattle raiser a better
rrice for his product and ultimately to
increase ine supply oi oeet animals wnicn
the world sorely needs.
I realise that actual results may not be
expected until a force can be organized
to conduct this undertaking but mv dut-
pose Is to stimulate the thinking of our
peopis m auvancooi uie operation.

and other cities.
In Holland Denmark Norway and Sweden
Mr. Corey will make a special study of food prob-

On his return to France about three months
hence Mr. Corey will join General Pershing
having permission to visit headquarters at any

on conditions but we anticipate a long period for
him with our men at the front.
Mr. Corey's long experienc in the war- he has
been on all fronts except in Russia and Mesopo-

put him far ahead of almost all of the present war
