Executive Board of the

and Dry Sections
A t the meeting o f the Central
Oregon Development League at
Prineville last week it was decid
ed by the executive board o f the
League and the railroad officials
present to establish two experi
ment farm stations in the central
part o f the state. One farm to
be located in the best place in
the irrigated district, and one in
the dry section.
It is the intention to have
these experimental stations su-
I>erintended by an expert from
the state experimental station.
The proposition is to raise a 110,-
000 fund to conduct the experi
ment stations for two years, and
then have the state take them
over. The railroads have signi
fied their willingness to contrib
ute their share, and there is
hardly any question but what the
commercial associations in Port
land and in the League will be
there with their part o f the mon
As Redmond is situated in the
center o f the irrigated district o f
Central Oregon it has been sug

be located near this city. This
