New York — The potato mar- ket met quiet trade here last week and although prices of all stock held close to levels prevailing during the previous week, movements were slow. Supplies were only moderate but de- mand failed to develop any appre- ciable activity and dealers reported that some of their stock had been carried over from day to day since the beginning of the week. The sentiment at shipping points re- mained strong and at midweek Maine farmers were reported receiving $2'® 2.10 for 165-pound barrels. Paring prices in Long Island held to $1.50 for Green Mountains on the north side and $1.80(ri'1.90 on the south side. The new potato market ruled stronger at shipping points Wltli Bliss quoted at $1.65 f. o. b. Fort Myers and Fort Pierce, an advance of approxi- mately 15c over last week. Digging operations in the Homestead and Goulds sections were expected to start during week of February 12. On the local market In 100-pound bags, Maine Chippewas brought $2.05 ff(2.10.

Typhoid is the chief disease and the great reduction of typhoid cases in this country has largely been due to people connecting to safe Village Water Works Systems which water is contin- ually tested by the State Health De- partment. The tact that water from dug and shallow wells looks clear and spark- ling In a glass Is no guarantee that It does not contain the germs of dlseaie. The tact that a shallow well har always been pure Is no assurance that It will continue to be to. As a safeguard to health, people In any community where there la » Pub- Uo Water Works System, they should consider oonneotlng to the Water don- pany malm Presque Isle, M a i n e — Ship- ments of potatoes from Maine for the week ending February 3 were 1,364 cars bringing the total for the season to 15,570 cars which happens to be equal to shipments to the same date last year. Late in the fall Maine had gained practically 1,000 cars over ship- ments last year but the advantage has gradually lessened during December and January due, it is believed, to the drop-off In shipments of seed pota- toes because of cold weather in the south. Last season Maine shipped 24,- 237 cars by raU and rail-boat after February 3 but with production a little less this year and due to other causes it is believed that Maine will ship ful- ly several thousand cars less than last year. Most Maine growers continue to feel optimistic and are looking forward to a better demand and better prices before long. Distribution of table stock from Maine continues to Improve In New England and New York state with some Improvement noted In Pennsyl- vania and Ohio. There is a definite Improvement In the distribution of table stock potatoes to points along the Atlantic seaboard. This, no doubt, Is due mostly to the recent rail-boat reduction to those sections. Large terminal markets lemalned generally firm to steady throughout the week but demand weakened slightly; late In the week. Prices to growers stayed at really the same level throughout the week with most reports showing $2@ 2.15 per barrel with an occasional large sized fancy lot bringing $2.25. Sales on seed potatoes during the week were generally slow although certified Cobblers met with a fair de- mand while prices on all varieties were practically unchanged. —NEW YORK PACKER Marketing experts, specialists in var- ious fields of agricultural research and Just plain \dirt\ farmers presented a wide variety of information on new wrinkles in potato growing and mar- keting at the eighth annual Suffolk County Potato Growers' Institute, held on Monday and Tuesday of last week in the county courthouse at Rlverhead under the auspices of the potato com- mittee of the Suffolk County Farm Bureau. It was one of the most Interesting and successful growers' rallies ever held In the county. The Farm Bureau lec- ture room, which can accommodate an audience of about 200 persons, was crowded both days. Herman E. Aldrich of Northville, potato committee chair- man, was the presiding officer at Mon- day's session and Bart V. Hadel Jr. of Amagansett, vice-chairman of the committee, occupied the chair on Tues- day. Maine Grower a Guest A special guest and speaker at the Institute was Carl R. Smith, an out- standing potato grower of Penobscot County, Maine, who told the Suffolk growers how they raise and market tubers in the biggest potato-producing state in the Union. Speaking on Monday, Dr. A. C. Cook of the U. S. Department of Agricul- ture, told the assembled farmers that the potato outlook for 1940 Is not al- together a happy one. He said that all signs point to a considerable acreage expansion — possibly as much as 100,- 000 additional acres planted to spuds. If gi'owlng condltons turn out to be fa- vorable, this -will mean as large and probably as unprofitable a crop as 1938's 370,000,000 bushel yield. He ad- vised Suffolk growers not to expand this season. A factor affecting potato forecasts, but not yet thoroughly explored, is the damage caused to potato plantings In the far south by the recent cold wave. One section of Florida, which normal- ly sends 2,000 carloads to market, will have only from 500 to 700 carloads this year. Dr. Cook declared Discusses New Varieties Speaking Tuesday on the topic, \What's New in Potato Growing?\ Dr. E. V. Hardenburg of the Department of Vegetable Crops at Cornell University, declared that the new potato varieties showing greatest promise are Earlalne No.2. Houma and Sebago, all U. S. De- partment of Agriculture originations. These new varieties tm-ned out fairly well In cooperative tests conducted last year by the L. I. Vegetable Research Farm and the Farm Bureau. All are attractive, smooth-skinned potatoes, apparently lack some of the superb cooking qualities of Long Island-grown Green Mountains. Dr. Hardenburg revealed that a new method is being worked out at Cornell to test the cooking qualities. It is a specific test, the potatoes being placed in a brine solution, and by observing whether the tubers sink or swim, the experts can tell how good they are. Robert H. White-Stevens of the L. I. Vegetable Researcdi Farm staff ans- wered the questions \Does it Pay to I r - rigate Potatoes?\ In the affirmative at Monday's session. Giving the results of extensive tests conducted on the ex- perimental farm at Baiting Hollow, Mr. White-Stevens offered exhaustive sta- tistical evidence to prove his point. In a talk given Tuesday aftemoon, Dr. P. J. Findlen of the Department of Agriculture Economics at Cornell declared that the acreage of potatoes in the Northeast has declined about one-fifth during the past 30 years. Dis- cussing trends in costs of producing potatoes. Dr. Findlen said: \Costs per acre to produce potatoes have usually moved with the general price level. In recent years, the use of tractor equipment has enabled produc- SOUTH FLORIDA TRtTCK GROWERS REPLANTING ers to reduce costs per acre. As a re- sult of reduced costs per acre together with increased yields per acre, costs per bushel to produce potatoes on New York cost account farms have declined. From 1921 to 1925, costs per bushel averaged 79 cents compared with 45 cents per bushel for the five-year per- iod 1934-38.\ Among Most Profit Crops Comparing the returns for the time spent on potatoes with other farm en- terprises in New York, Dr. Findlen said that from 1914 to 1938, the return for time spent on potatoes averaged 58 cents per hour. Potatoes, cabbage and apples are among the most profitable crops grown on New York farms. Discussing the declining trend in po- tato consumption. Dr. Findlen said it may be halted If the public becomes better educated regarding the nutritive value of potatoes. He also raised the question whether, in view of the added expense entailed in marketing pota- toes in branded consumer packages, a large volume of consumer packages can be sold to medium and low Incomc families who consume by far the larg- est quantity of potatoes. John Wickham, Cutchogue potato grower and a member of the State Ag- ricultural Conservation Committee, ur- ged that all growers should, when buy- ing certified seed for the coming sea- son, demand disease readings based on Florida tests. Mr Smith, the visitor from Maine, gave the Suffolk growers a clear pic- ture of growing and marketing meth- ods followed In his home state. Rota- tion of crops Is common practice, he said, and Maine farmers swear by barnyard manure and double strength fertilizers. So many potatoes are now moved by water routes — chiefly on tramp freighters which range the en- tire Atlantic coast, that Maine rail- roads are going In the red. There has been a noteworthy tendency to step up grade standards in Maine, and con- sumer packages are being used more extensively, although the bulk of the crop Is still moved to market in 100- pound sacks. Maine farmers are also trying out new varieties, although Cob- blers and Green Mountains remain the most popular. The outcome of a discussion over which Farm Bureau Manager W. G. Been presided was a decision to ad- vertise Long Island potatoes, at least to the extent of (Hsplaylng plates on cars bearing some appropriate slogan, such as \For Health and Pep, Eat Long Island 'Potatoes:\ The plates, about -one-half the size of automobile license plates can be purchased for 25 cents each and the Farm Bureau will secure them for all interested growers. Asks More Careful Handling The growers also voted in favor of a campaign, to be conducted by the Farm Bureau to persuade both grow- ers and dealers to handle potatoes more carefully. It was pointed out that potatoes are often damaged in packaging operations In warehouses. A move bo tighten up on grade stand- ards met with little success as It was generally agreed that the existing grades are satisfactory. —The County Review Pahokee, Florida, — Growers in south Florida are working night and day replanting the vegetable crops that were lost during the recent cold weather in an attempt to have crops to ship as early in the spring as pos- sible. The recent cold spell was the worst experienced since 1934 when prac- tically everything was wiped out in the Everglades. The only crops left in the lake section are celery and cab- bage and of course these crops suf- fered some damage. However, it is believed at this time that a consider- able acreage will be marketable. It is believed that pcices Hor the re- mainder of the crop probably will be more than would have been received for the entire crop under normal con- ditions. Prices for both celery and cabbage now are advancing, and are causing growers and shippers to re- member the prices which prevailed In 1935 after the December freeze of 1934. The market before that freeze was so low that vegetables were left In the fields. After the freeze which took everything but cabbage, prices for this commodity began sky-rocketing, and it sold as high as $100 per ton. Naturally, growers who are so fortunate as to have cabbage at this time are begin- ning to dream about such prices again. —NEW YORK PACKER BUSINESS CARDS TERRY & KRUPSKI Attorneys and Counselors at Law SOUTHOLD, N.
