Tumalo Project Pleases Ex
ecutive. Who Thinks Ex
ample Encouraging.
Assurance Given Settlers on Central
Oregon Irrigation. Company's
Land That Full Report
Will Be Published.
BEND. Or., Juno 26. (Special.)
This morning Governor Withycombe
and the members of the Fish and Game
Commission left for Klamath Falls on
the second leg- of their Central Oregon
trip. Secretary Olcott and Attorney
General Brown with other members of
the Desert Land Board returned to Port
land last night after spending the day
on irrigation projects near here.
"I am more than pleased with the
Tumalo project" said Governor Withy
combe after inspecting the newly com
pleted state project. "The work has
been, well done and it seems to me that
the project as the state has built it
stands not only as a. monument to the
efficiency but especially as a more de
sirable example of the right way to
construct Irrigation enterprises. It the
example set will encourage others so
much the better."
Governor la Pleased.
The Governor, whose many years of
practical and scientific agricultural
work make him an expert In such mat
ters, spoke with enthusiasm of the
agricultural projects of the Central
Oregon Irrigated lands. In his talks he
urged that farmers devote their chief
attention to raising hogs and cows, as
both were proved successes. Under the
leadership of Fred Wallace, project
manager, and W. D. Barnes a big
gathering of Tumalo settlers greeted
the party at Laidlaw at noon yester
day, giving an elaborate luncheon in
the Community Hall, with more than
250 attending. Representative Forbes,
of Bend, one of the speakers, referred
to the fact that the guests included
the most notable gathering of state
officials ever assembled in Central Ore
gon. Other speakers were the Governor,
Secretary of Stale Olcott, Attorney
General Brown, G. P. Putnam, secre
tary to the Governor, and a resident
of Bend: W. D. Barnes. V. A. Forbes
and W. O. Smith, of Klamath.
While there was not enough time
available to attempt to see much of
the Central Oregon Irrigation Com
pany's Carey act project east of Bend
and Redmond, an hour's meeting was
arranged in the morning, at the request
of settlers. Several settlers told of
alleged, grievances against the company
and its management, and were assured
by the board members that their com
plaints would be heard fully.
In reference to a report on the
project, recently prepared by a repre
sentative of the board and revised
brfera publication. Governor Withy
combe. emphatically- told settlers who
objected to delay in getting out the
report that absolutely no facts or find
ings of the engineer who prepared
the report have been omitted.
Findings o Uc Made Public
"So far as I am concerned." said the
Governor, "the settlers will get all the
facts about the project that are avail
able to the board."
Officials of the company havi ob
jected strenuously to publication of
certain engineering findings in the re
port which they allege to bo unfair
or innreurate. According to the Gov
ernor, however, the board believes that
the facts set forth are correct and de
spite the objections no effort will he
made to take the action desired by the
An elaborate banquet was given here
last night by the Emblem Club, with
a programme of unique "stunts."
W. r. Cheney, the "taboo" presided
over the singing, and was "stunt
master," and C. S. Hudson acted as
toastmaster. All the visiting officials
spoke and several local men. W. C
Wilkes, assistant general freight and
passenger agent of the North Bank
Railroad, was given a warm welcome
and a genuine ovation greeted Gov
"nor Withycombe, who spoke last.
The Governor spoke warmly of the
country and the splendid reception ac
corded him and especially discussed
the desirability of educating the young
people of the United States in America

WOOD, LAND, Wash.; June 26. (Spe
cial.) The sixth annual fair will be
held irk Woodland. Wash., September
23, 24 and 25 under the direction of
the Cowlitz bounty Fair Association.
For several years past. Woodland has
held fruit shows, each one growing
larger and covering new branches,
until a permanent association was
formed to cover the entire field of
fair work.
In the Fall of 1913 the Cowlitz
County Fair Association was incor
porated by a number of farmers, busi
ness and professional men, who paid
for enough stock to purchase grounds,
erect buildings and finance the first
real fair of size. This fair was well
patronized, both by attendance and ex
hibitors, despite the wet weather, and
the association could show a credit
balance at the end of the season.
Improvements and extentions have
been undertaken by the direotors for
the coming season, which will add
materially to the capacity andat
tractiveness of the grounds.
The association will award a silo tb
the owner of the best five dair cat
tle exhibited at the fair this FalL
In order to qualify for this prize,
the herd must be represented for the
three days of the fair by at least
five animals, and must be on the
grounds by noon September 23, there
being no discrimination as to breeding.
Grains and grasses, vegetables and
roots have their separate space allotted.
Poultry, geese, ducks and turkeys will
have a new home on the west side
of the grounds.
Special attention is to be given to
the county school work.

RIDGE FIELD, Wash., June 26 (Spe
cial.) The hop crop in the-western
section of Clarke County, in the Sara
country, is said to be in the best con
dition at this season for a number of
years. A much larger crop than last
year, judging fFom the present indica
tions, is expected. Joseph S. Harris,
one of the leading hopgrowers in this
part of Clarke County, expects his. six
acres to yield 1500 pounds dried.
Summer Attendance at Eugene
Expected to Set Record.
Educators Drawn From Several
Noted Institutions, Including
Clark, Princeton and Wis
consin Universities.
June 26. (Special.) Summer school at
the University will begin Monday. The
attendance, which was expected to
show a temporary Interruption in its
growth, or even a decrease, on account
of the counter-attraction offered by the
San Francisco Exposition, bids fair to
exceed all previous Summer sessions.
"We have had a much vlarger bulk of
correspondence this year than we ever
had before," declares Dr. Joseph Scha
fer, head of the history department in
the University, who each Summer acts
as dean of the Summer session, "and
unless every indication is misleading,
we can count on a considerable increase
in attendance."
Among the outside professors who
will take part in the Summer session
is d. Stanley Hall, president of Clark
University. Dr. Hall is considered by
educators as the greatest living author
ity on adolescent psychology, and is,
according to Dr. Schafer. "a lecturer
of extraordinary brilliancy." His rep
utation is international.
J. Duncan Spaeth," prof essor of Eng
lish at Princeton, will have as his gen
eral theme, "Poets as Interpreters of
Life." His open lectures will deal prin
cipally with several of the 19th cen
tury English poets.
One of the strongest men connected
with the Summer school, according to
Dr. Schafer, will be Charles Forster
Smith, for many years head of the de
partment of Greek at the University of
Wisconsin. Professor Smith Is in gen
eral demand as a lecturer and usually
Is offered fees far in excess of the pre
vailing rates. He was induced to come
to Oregon, however, through his fon,
Dr. Warren D. Smith, who was last
year called to Eugene from the posi
tion of chief of the bureau of mines for
the Philippine government, to take
charge as head of the Oregon depart
ment of geology.
Professor E. P. Cubberley, head of the
education department of Stanford Uni
versity, will lecture on themes connect
ed with school administration. Profes
sor Cubberly has recently been con
nected prominently with the school sur
veys of many cities, including that of
Professor William S. Morgan, of the
Pacific Unitarian School for the Min
istry, at Berkeley, Cal., will be the Car
negie endowment lecturer in interna
tional law and conciliation.
One of the most unusual courses of
fered by the Summer school will be a
geological-botany scientific expedition
which will be conducted along the crest
of the Cascades from Eugene to Med
ford. a distance by trail of several hun
dred miles. Professors Smith and
Mitchell, of the geology department,
and Professor Sweetser, of the botany
department, will be in charge.

OREGON CITT, Or., June 26. (Spe
cial.) Plans are now under way for
a big Nebraska day celebration in honor
