Supple Wants Kast Water Widened.
Joseph Supple, who owns a shipyard on
East Water street between East Morrison
and East Yamhill, wants East Water
made SO feet wide between East Morrison
street and Hawthorne avenue. It 19 not a
new project, but so far has not succeeded.
The street is $0 feet wide, and some per
manent buildings have already been built
on the east side of the street. It would
be necessary to take 30 feet from the
property on the west side next to the
river. Mr. Supple says that as the river
blocks are long blocks and extend soma
distance out Into the river, this strip can
be taken from that side of the street
very easily, and the property on the east
aide could be assessed the value of 10 .feet
of the property taken, which he considers
would be fair. Mr. Supple has been a
persistent advocate of a wide avenue for
East Water for a number of years, and
the proceedings were carried forward
nearly to a successful end on his initia
tive, but failed because of the opposition
of one or two property owners. He calls
attention to the present heavy traffic
along East Water street, -which will be
Increased as the warehouse district fills
up. "We shall have a narrow alley," he
said, "to transact the business of this
whole district. There is a car track on
the street now, and it has some side
spurs, which take up most of the street.
There will be manufacturing concerns and
wholesale houses erected along this
street, and it will become more crowded
every year. We can take 30 feet off the
west side of the street and it will not
hurt anybody. It will give a wide street
to do business on. and add to the value
of the property on botji sides. In Seattle
they cut down brick buildings to make
wide streets. We shall have SOO.OlO people
in a few years. Central East Portland
along the "river will fill up. and if we
don't make East Water an SO-foot street
now we will have cause to "regret It In

distinct educational agency insofar as it
applies to the Older ana weaitnier ngu

work can best be done under the direc
tion of the various state agricultural col
leges. Following a paper by G. A. Putnam, of
Toronto. Canada, on the practicability
and advisability of holding separate In
stitutes for women and of organizing
women's clubs, there was considerable
animated discussion concerning the place
and value of women In institutes and in
Woman Holds Key.
Said Lewis A. Merrill, of Salt Lake
Citv: "The women hold the key to the
situation. It remains for us who are in
'tereeted in this movement for farmers'
organizations to use every means within
our grasp to make the women of the
country realize the beauties, the joy, the
freedom from restraint and the all-sided
development possible. This understand
ing is more possible when the farmers
and the men and women meet jointly In
the institutes. The woman Is the power
behind the throne on the farm.
"The work of the rural clubs Is con
cerned more with eradicating the point of
view of many women that housework Is
a thing to be gotten rid of as quickly
as- possible than with any other phase
of the subject."

Operation With Other Educational
Agencies," discussed the matters of co
operation with extension schemes and
"agricultural colleges, the final place of
the Farmers' Institute and the institute
system, and the responsibility for dif
ferent kinds of work. He also said, "The
agricultural college Is primarily an educa
tional Institution, and It therefore be
comes the function of the college to
teach farmers as well as to teach stu
dents who come to college.
"The highest form jai co-operation be
tween the different Institutions interested
In institute work will be the development
of the educational work chiefly by the
colleges and the public service and police
work by the state departments of agri
culture." Movable Schools Discussed.
D. W. Working. In discussing the move
able school question, said the motive of
the movable school is not to get student3
for the college but to reach those who
cannot or will not attend the short
courses at the college.
Tho present system of issuing agricul
tural bulletins from the colleges of the
United States Department of Agriculture
was given a rap when C. H. Tuck, of
Ithaca, N. Y.. made the statement that
nearly one-half of the bulletins distrib
uted are wasted. Professor Tuck said:
"We have closed and even prejudiced the
rnlnd of many of our farmers by send
ing to them such a vast amount of agri
cultural information on all subjects, re
gardless of their particular interests.
"Nearly one-half the bulletins distrib
uted by the colleges are directly wasted.
They find their places in the waste paper
basket with a readiness that would do
credit to a commercial mail order busi
ness." Dr. James Wlthycombe, of the Oregon
State Agricultural College, in Sn address
drew attention to. the co-operative field
of usefulness of demonstration trains. He
said in part:
"This Is an age of specialization. Not
only are individual farmers becoming
specialists, but farming communities are
rapidly being characterized for special
production. Agriculture being a strictly
progressive vocation, is constantly con
fronted with new problems. It matters
not how well farmers may be succeeding,
there are always questions upon which
Information Is greatly desired. To meet
occasionally and discuss these various
problems is good, but opportunity for
practical demonstration is better. Thus
if it be at all feasible to maintain co-operative
demonstration work along the
dominant lines of production in the vari
ous sections, it would be of inestimable
value. This work could be conducted at
accessible points in the different locali
ties and form the base for practical agri
cultural demonstration. The fact that
farmers can without much effort see the
things in which they are greatly interest
ed will have a far greater significance
than they could simply hear without see
