No one who saw the nriv." n r "--\- ucts of Hie 150 colonist fainlllo.s spread out on loivj tables In the spacious new community hall an-J. f.chqol at Palmer could fail to i'2- cnll.'niiollicr T^anksgivitis. Pioneer colonists celebrated -that one,' loo,' at 'Plymouth in l(!2l. For four days the Mitlanuska colonists gloated over the fat livestock housed in special barns, the bundles of vegetables, tlie golden sreave.s of wheat, the bunches '">f clover that v;ere their answer to Mio^p who sa r | thay couldn't grow ' anything In Alaska.

Ross L. Sr.cely, manager of th? eorporatlon, pointed prourllr to his own garden to show what can be grown, and is being fuown. Potatoes, radishes, turnips, beets, rutabagas, parsnips, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, kohl rahi, peas, beans, onions, spinach, S\vuss chard nnd celery were all there. Tomatoes even ripened during trie uast favorable summer. Wheat, oats, barley, rye. buckwheat, mid flax, clover an:l several varieties qr hay and vetch were', shown nt the fair. Tree fruits, melons, and alfalfa . were failures. FRET OVKK FARM COSTS The fair and (its c:\iibits did much lo reassure the colonists as far us the farm possibilities of the region go. But Uhere .ire complaints, even nmong the mast industrious, about the financial end ofjthc colonization scheme. In the first plncq.!'lr</y rjnd-it hard,t<i gat .used loathe /Alsstan". prices, substantially' higher '-an everything than in the states. "We can't find whore \ve stand . v as to what we owe tr.e government." said a colonist with a splendid record. "We get statements on what we owe the commissary for food and c'Jlbin?, but we can't .find out what our houses, bud, and 1m- IVMIPP-OHI, : , re goju» to stand us. OPINIONS IN CONFLICT "We now find our farms are go- ine to cnst 115 more Mian \vt were told," he continued. "Even mv -:lebt will be more than SSflfiO, anil I Iwv? done all my o;vn labor in building my house and Improving tbr land. Other., who liave labor bill* will have debts higher than mine." Another colonist's more cxtrsm" view was:. "There won't. b2 any farmers on these farms when thev find out what they're going to cost No one is going to pay 10 or 15 thousand dollars for a 40-ucrc farm in Alaska." But still another says "They couldn't chase me out!" Manager Shecly says hs has made vain efforts to get the appraisals made and reports sent. Ha thinks ttie average debt will bo around S5COO. Most of the colonists do not fear the oncoming second winter. Their houses are built now, and it wasn't any colder last winter than in the homes they left bjhind them in the states. Nineteen below zero was the coldest, a relatively mild winter, anil snow \vas only a few inches deep, old-timers say 1G inches is gcorl nverngc. '.WOSQUITOKS ARE ^The mosriuilocs were bad. the jfllanisls admit, but the season for Minn is only about a month and a half loin, you could stnnrl them. if you wore a veil when yon \vcr.t Into the forest. It ts now more than two montli? since any colonists have left to go back to the states. Fourteen or 15 families who were residents of Alaska have been accepted to replace some of the 55 families who left. and others who are paying their own way up from the states will also be accepted to fill vacancies on the 111 farms which now- have houses on them. Sixty children have nlso added to the population of ths colony since arrival, an.1 there will ba many more within the next few months. Three colonists, Virgil Eckhart, Joseph l\ihl, and Walter Pipptl, have already declared their inrtc- pendence of further government credit, and have started payin? back their loans. There will be several more this fall, sheely believes. BARNS BEING BUILT New barns arc rising now, to supplement the houses built last winter, nnd the colonists have cleared nn average ot eight acres apiece. The first creamery in the region, which will market co- ralively for the whole valley. Ill soon be in operation.
