1940
Pocatello, Bannock, Idaho
Samuel Z. Adelstein 47 [as transcribed on Ancestry.com]
Roberta P. Adelstein 44
W--- J Adelstein 16
E--- A Adelstein 5
J--- C Adelstein 20
Edward A Prater 17

Comparing the 1940 census to the 1930 and 1920 censuses already posted, looks like the older children here are also offspring of William Prater senior (b abt 1881 in Wales), rather than being Adelsteins.

Edward Prater's death certificate should verify that William was his father (you have his death date and place).

Praters in the online Idaho death index - includes a William Prater (unknown so far if same person):
