      Eminent Bacteriologist.
      While the uncontaminated air and perpetual sunshine od Colorado, coupled withe the crystal key of irrigation which unlocks the treasure chest of a rich soil, combine to produce marvelous yields, there is the ever present gacteria to foster and to combat. Realizing the importance of careful study and investigation of the various bacterial forms of plant diseases, Prof. W. Paddock, for a number of years past has aptiently conducted a line of research that has reslted in great benefit to the general farming interests of the state. So great have the demands upon his time and energy become that it has been found necessary to employ a specialist. Mr. W. B[G?] Sackett has been appointed to the position of Bacteriologist, of the Colorado Experiment Station, and will enter upon his important duties immediately.
      Professor Sackett brings a broad training and a wide practical knowledge of his subject to Colorado. Graduating from Ohio State University, he completed a post-graduate course of study in Chicago University, after which he was engaged as bacteriologist in connection with the Chicago drainage canal suit. Later he was in the employ of the government. For the past four years, Professor Sacket has been assisstant professor of bacteriology in the Michigan Agricultural college.

      This house was built in 1895 by Professor Walter Sackett on a parcel of land (at what is now the corner of Bluff and Westwood) that was purchased for $700 from the 150 acre Tilton subdivision. In 1909, Prof. Sackett traded teaching positions with Prof. Wendell Paddock who was at Colorado A&M University. Prof. Paddock was the author of several books, including a famous treatise on growing fruit trees in the arid western United States, and taught horticulture at OSU after arriving here. Not only did the two professors trade positions, but Sackett sold his house to Paddock as well. Over the years Paddock planted a wide variety of regional wildflowers to bloom throughout the season, and was called the "daffodil man" because of his impressive array of daffodils. He and his wife Jessie had a daughter Jessie, who in turn had a daughter Marcia Murphey. Marcia was married to singer Neil Diamond from 1968 to 1996.

      "FILTER PLANT OPERATED IN HAPHAZARD MANNER"
      Prof. W. G. Sackett Tells Aldermen They Have Allowed The New Institution To Become A Wreck During Administration
      ASTONISHING STATE OF AFFAIRS IS MADE KNOWN TO CITY OFFICIALS.
      "The city council and other city officials were told in unmistakable language on Monday evening that the city's filtration pland had been allowed to go to "rot," and that it was of absolutely no benefit to the community. The institution has been operated in a hap-hazard manner with no regard for any of the working parts of the plant. The most essential parts of the works had been neglected and the filters have been used merely for running through water.
      "The adminstration of the city's affairs with respect to the filter plant was rebuked by one of the city employes. Prof. Walter G. Sackett, bacteriologist at the college, who makes the bacteriological examinations of the water for the city, made the statements to the council. Mr. Sackett did not spare words and he told of the conditions at the filte plant just as he found them.
      "These conditions were called to the attention of several aldermen. On Saturday, Alderman Eves drove his car to the filter plant, taking with him Alderman Cummings, Prof. Sackett and the city physician, Dr. B. A. Gooding. What they found was told by Prof. Sackett at the council meeting. ..."

      PROF. SACKETT TURNS DOWN FLATTERING OFFER
      Professor Walter G. Sackett, in charge of the bacteriological department of the experiment station here, has jus turned down a very flattering offer from the Michigan Agricultural college. Mr. Sackett came here from Michiban where he was assistant professor of bacteriology and hygiene. The Michigan college sent word to Mr. Sackett a few days ago that he was wanted to take charge of this department at a very nice salary. Asked why he turned down th offer, Professor Sackett replied that he preferred the work here. This is a new country and there are new problems being presented continually for solution and he enjoys original research work which is being done under the Adams fund. The opportunities here for new work and development are larger and better, whild the work in Michigan is confined to the same old lines with a large amount of executive and administrative work included.
      Director Gillett of the experiment station is very much pleased that Mr. Sackett turned down the offer made by Michigan as he considers the bacteriologist one of the most valuable men in the experiment work.
