SALE OF BLOODED STOCK
BURT WEST WILL HOLD : " V
PUBLIC AUCTION ON Jilt 12
At the annual convention of the
Oregon State Bankers' Association
held recently at Corvallis the prog
ress made in agricultural develop
ment and education during the past
year was carefully reviewed. Re
ports from all over the state indi
cated that the effort made last
season to interest the school child
ren as well as their parents had met
with remarkable success, enabling
the association to hold fairs in
every county in the state except
two, at which the various articles
made and the products grown by
the children were exhibited. At
these county gatherings the finest
specimens were selected and for
warded to the State Fair at Salem,
where the children were awarded
prizes in an amount aggregating
$20,000. It. was pointed out that
under the provisions of Senate Bill
72, passed at the recent session of
the legislature, the counties of the
state are authorized to provide an
unlimited amount of money for the
purpose of carrying on educational
farm work and to pay the salaries
and expenses of field agents, with a
further provision that appronri-
ations made by the individual coun
ties will be duplicated by the state.
From the splendid reports coming
in from all over the state to the
Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion and to the Agricultural Col
lege, the Bankers' Association was
convinced that it could not afford
ts discontinue their support of the
notice that 77 head of fine young
cattle have been secured and will
be shipped into the county within a
few days. Until this summer Burns
has had to depend on outside points
for its butter, a condition which
will doubtless be corrected in the
The United States forestry service
and the state game wardens will
co-operate for the protection of
game, as well as of the forests, un
der an agreement recently entered
into between State Game Warden
Finley and District Forester Cecil.
The agreement provides that
rangers, assistant rangers and other
officers may be appointed deputy
game warders. They will report
all viblations of the game laws
within their respective districts snd
will also make arrests in cases which
come under their personal observa
tion, except during the fire season.
On the other hand, the regular
game wardens will extinguish any
small fires they way discover and all
such fires will be as promptly as
possible reported to the forest
officer in charge of the district.
