Plans are afoot to double the production and facilitate the marketing of potatoes on Honey Lake Valley this year.

Already three cars or over 100,000 pounds of certified seed have been ordered from Idaho and will be shipped before April 1. Plans are being made to get the state inspector, who is located at San Diego, to inspect the seed in order that the California certified seed association may be able to handle much of this crop as seed potatoes thereby commanding a better price. With this possibility there will still remain a sufficient quantity of potatoes in the valley to supply all local needs.

Twenty-one sacks of certified seed have arrived for the high school potato club and another shipment of 25 sacks will be here soon. This seed is supplied the high school boys by the association at a very moderate rate to compare in production with local or ordinary seed.

Mr. J. F. Lane and Mr. Nelson of Madeline, have just purchased two purebred Ayrshire bulls from Carl J. Lockwood of Sparks, Nevada.

Dr. I. J. Anderson of the United States Bureau of Animal Industry, has announced that Big Valley was entirely free from tubercular cattle.

The women of the Methodist church held a bazaar last evening in the church parlors. A cooked food booth was managed by Mrs. Ralph Taylor, assisted by Mrs. Anderson. Mrs. J. J. Woodward and Mrs. Ira Price managed an apron and fancy work booth and Mrs. Spaulding one for potted plants. Mrs. Love and Mrs. Robert Fulton, assisted by high school girls served coffee or tea with doughnuts.
