Cross- ley, o f Hicksville, w h o has charge o f the w o rk in this district, is making plans fo r such a cam p to open on August first. This will be ready and in shape fo r potato picking time. A t the m eeting o f Pom ona Grange held last week Mr. Crossley was pres­ ent and explained the plan o f the B o y s ’ W o r k ing Reserve. Some dis­ cussion resulted and it was suggested that each Grange should take up the proposition and make plans fo r us­ ing boy camps to the best advantage. It is hoped that all arrangem ents will be made fo r such camps by July 1st, even though the camps are not to be established until later. This is de­ sirable not only so that Mr. Cross- ley may make his plans but so that the boys who are willing and anxious to make their w o rk tell fo r food pro­ duction may know what to expect. It may be well to repeat what many o f our readers already know, that the B o y ’ s W orking Reserve is a Fed­ eral organization under the D epart­ ment o f labor with a separate or- ganization in each state, and is w o rk­ ing in hearty co-operation with Mr. Parker, the Farm Bureau manager, and Mr. Inglee, the labor specialist assigned to Suffolk county. — Buy W .

N o t only did the farm ers purchase liberally o f ■ the bonds, but the rural communities as a rule were more prom p t in com- I p leting their quotas o f the loan than the larger cities. M ore than 20,000 communities in the United States sub­ scribed or oversubscribed their quotas, many o f them on the first day o f the campaign. The m a jority o f these were not cities, but country dis­ tricts. ' Miss Agnes W o lff, o f New York, has returned to Southam p ton fo r | the summer. | The Misses Dessie Cook andChar- lotte Clark spent the week-end in I Greenport as guests o f the Misses Faith and Diademia Croane.

They spoke at a m eeting in Buttonow ’s garage and succeeded in getting several men to join the colors. I Frank Downs, superintendent o f ! highways o f Southam pton, has a rep- j utation fo r fa r sightedness which I the follow in g incident shows. Last , fall Mr. Downs purchased a used gas tank from an oil com p any, had it shipped to W estham p ton on a flat car, unloaded, set in concrete, and buried. He then purchased tw o cars o f about 15,000 gallons o f road oil : and pumped it into the tank. The ] d ifference in the price o f oil then and now m ore than pays fo r the tank, besides giving him a supply o f oil that will go a long way in patching the roads,providing the governm ent prevents cars o f road oil com ing I through, which have already been contracted for. | Three autom obile loads o f farm e r- , ettes struck town last Saturday after­ noon and sim u ltaneously interest in agriculture on Main street was m any fest.

Top­ ping last Sunday afternoon, and be­ sides stealing several quarts o f ber­ ries, did a great deal o f damage to the plants. Just as they had a nice quantity picked, however, they were taken by surprise by the arrival o f Mr. Topping, and they started on a run leaving practically all they had picked, and one o f the boys even left his hat, which was fu ll o f berries.
