To Corvallls and Newport must Ijo
extended the honor of being Oro
gon'a most entertaining twins. The
exhibition of co-operation, of bound
less hospitality, of wholo-heartod
fellowship which these enterprising
communities afforded to the mem-
bora of tho Oregon Editorial associ
ation will furnish tho inspiration
for more laudatory comments upon
tho civic He of these remarkablo
towns than has been the good for
tune of any similar communities in
many years.
For genuine good fun and a de
lightful chango In cllmato and
scenes tho Argus does not hesltato
a moment to recommend the Ya
quina bay resort and the city which
is tho gateway to it. There Indeed
will bo found plenty to Interest, in
spire and choor tho visitor. Tho
beautiful beach, the boundless
ocean rlmmod by tho rugged fir clad
mountains unlto to mako an alluring
vacation region. Nothing which na
ture can provide is missing, while
tho enterprising spirit of the peoplo
has added to thoso other attrac
tions which some must have to mako
tholr sojourn away from home a do
light. Yaqulna bay Is ono of Oregon's
groat watorways. Nye beach and
tho Jagged cliffs along the shore
combine to mako a play ground par
oxcollont . Whether It Is fishing or
tramping that tho summer visitor on
Joys most; either may bo had under
-ldoal conditions. Beautiful mer
maids brighten tho plcturo, If bright
ness be noedod, whilo ovonlngs of
dancing, roller skating and swim
ming in tho ndoquato plunge sorve
to whilo away pleasant hours for
thoso who scok variety of oxerclso.
To others tho roar of tho surf, tho
grandeur of tho great ocean Is tho
sourco of ronowed strength. Tho
contrast which unfolds itsolf on the
ocoan shore to that which Is our
dally vlow is most appoallng, and
whilo other portions of tho Oregon
coast aro greatly blcssod, nono havo
moro to appoal to tho roBt or ro
croatlon sookor that has Newport.
Thoso -who havo not yet taken their
vncntlon should not overlook tho
possibilities of tho Yaqulna bay region.
O. A. C, tho dark picture drawn by
tho California wizard loses much of
its terrors. Through the applica
tion of scientific knowledge gained
within tho collego walla, students
from 0. A. 0. have Increased the
productivity of the soil. Thoy havo
literally reached the stage of tho
blessed who havo "made two blades
growwhere ono grew before."
The statement is mado on author
ity of high officials of the collego
that tho poultry department of O.
A. C. has through selective breeding
so improved the strains of the poul
try of Oregon that $5,000,000 an
nually-is added to the income of tho
commonwealth It was O. A. C.
that devoloped the scientific spray
ing of fruit trees, thus saving year
after year millions of dollars for tho
fruit men of Oregon, and at tho
same time increasing the available
fruit supply of the nation.
What this great school has done
for these two allied departments of
agriculture Is true to a degree at
least of the others, and through the
oxtonston system It haB carried lta
message out to tho people. It was
for tho reason that the representa
tives of tho peoplo In Congress who
realized that unless science came to
tho aid of agriculture, wo as a peo
plo were doomed to suffer, that
fedoral aid was given for tho pur
pose of stimulating the diffusion of
information through the extension
Whilo taxpayers may complain 'of
tho cost of sucli an Institution they
forget when they do so tho servlco
that Is rendered. Few of them
know how much they as Individuals
are saved by the added productivity
of tho soil; they do not take into
account the mission of the school In
training men to so use the soil that
11 fo may be made endurable for tho
peoplo. If we as a people aro to
contlnuo to grow and prosper we
must bo wllllngto meet this growing
cost of agricultural education. Up
on its continuance rests the founda
tion of our prosperity; yes oven of
our very existence, If Mr. Burbank's
statement Is at all Justified.

USt V g&?l Cross-Rib Tread Cord
A Popular-Priced Cord Tire
Without a Rival
The new Goodyear Cross-Rib Tread Cord Tire is built with
genuine high-grade long-staple cotton as a foundation.
It is liberally oversize -the 4,2-inch tire, for example,
measuring nearly 5 inches.
The deep, clean-cut, cog-like pattern of its 'tread affords
excellent traction even in snow and mud, engaging the road
like a.cogwheel.
The scientific distribution of rubber in this tread-hewide
center rib and the semi-flat contour-gives a thick, broad
surface that is exceedingly slow to wear. ' ,
This new tire is a genuine Goodyear through and through "
in design, in material, in construction.
It costs less to buy than the net price you are asked to pay for
many "long discount" tires of unknown reputation and value.
Why be satisfied with less than this efficient tire can rive
why take a chance on an unknown make?
You can get this new Goodyear Cross-Rib Tread Cord now
as well as the famous AH-Weather Tread Cord, from any of
the Goodyear Service Station Dealers listed here.
