Workers Tackle Stretch Leading
From Eagle Creek Camp With
Vim Last Sunday.
Five eighths of a mile of easy
trail, leading from Eagle creek camp
grounds to one of the high points
overlooking the Columbia river was
tfte result of the day's labor of the
Mazamas last Sunday when they de
voted their usual Sunday outing to
building a project. that opens up to
the public one of the most beautiful
views of the Columbia river gorge.
The day was perfect, and about 75
workers turned out, rolled up their shirt
sleeves, grabbed axes, grub hoes and
saws, and pitched in. Displaying the
same qualities of persistence and cheer
fulness with which they scale the most
obstinate mountain peaks, the Mazamas
attacked the brush with a vigor, and by
J p. m. a well built trail extended from
the campgrounds to Buck Rock.
Buck Rock has been hitherto but
rarely visited, because of the difficulty
entailed in reaching it. Until Sunday
afternoon Buck Rock was known as
Little Goat Rock, being thus named by
the trails committee of the Mazamas
when they surveyed the route. , But
when, upon the completion of the work,
the crowd gathered upon the rocky point,
capped by two tall trees, with the Stars
and Stripes waving between, the motion
was made and carried that the point be
called Buck Rock, in honor of C. J.
Buck, chairman of the 'trails committer.
The trail to Buck Rock is the second
the Mazamas have built during the year,
the former being that to Tanner Creek
falls, which the Mazamas further im
proved Sunday by the placing of planks
over the pipes at the lower end.
The United States forest service co
operated In providing the tools and the
signs with which the trail has been
marked. At the entrance to the trail.
which starts from behind the ranger
cabin, has been placed an archway built
by Forest Ranger Albert "Wlesendanger,
over which is the sign. "Mazama Trail.
Buck Rock V Mile." The trail is very
scenic, winding through the timber on an
easy grade, overlooking the highway and
the river. On Buck Rock, around the
sign, "Welcome, Mazamas," have been
placed signs pointing to Wauna Point,
Hamilton mountain, - Table mountain,
BeAcon Rock 'and other points of inter
est visible from the point.

STRIKE CALLED REACTIONARY
MAY LOSE FIGHT
Disaster of '80s, When Wheat
Strike lost, Recalled in Pres
ent Demand for Three Dollars.
By James L. Kilgallen .
(Cnited New 8taft Correspondent)
Chicago, Oct. 30. Gray-haired fi
nanciers in LaSalle street who re
membered that disastrous "wheat
strike" of farmers back in the '80s
are dubious concerning the success
I of the present "strike- of Middle
West farmers who are holding their
wheat until tho price goes back to
$3. It is now around $2.
"It's a reactionary movement" de-
clared, Joseph P. Griffin, twice president
or me cnicago tsoaro 01 iraae, weanes
The full effect of the "strike" is not
expected to be felt for another week or
10 days. The first news of the action
of the farmers resulted in a 2 to 3 cent
drop Wednesday In values on the Chi
BANKS ARE SPLIT
All the grain growers are not for the
"strike," according to an official of a
leading board of trade firm with branch
offices in the Southwest, He said the at
titude of local banks In farming com
munities will have mdeh to do with
success or failure of the movement.
The farmer without money has got to
sell unless his bank finances him much
in the same manner a labor organization
sometimes does its striking members.
Karl Akers, president of the Kansas
reserve bank, in a dispatch from Topeka
was quoted as saying he doubted that
the farmers would ever be able to get $3
for their wheat, although he recognised
their right to hold it for higher prices.
FARMERS LOST OCT
Back in the '80's the farmers insisted
on $1 wheat. They finally accepted 50
If the price is shot up to $3 this year,
according to Griffin, it will not be be
cause of any "strike" but because of
the world's supply and demand situa
tion. "The Southwest is but a small factor
In the world influence on grain prices,"
said Griffin who is held to be an au
thority in LaSalle street "The so-called
strike is a local situation. Its effect will
bo purely local and temporary.
"While the Southwest is an Important
factor. It cannot control the world sit
uation. Canada Is still shipping freely.
There is a lot of wheat accumulated at
market centers and in country elevfctors
and mills. The rest of the United States,
Argentina. Australia. India nd other
wheat-raising countries, must be reck
"The war has been over for two years.
Prices in other lines are coming down.
The farmer must face the situation as It
exists, not as he would like it to be."
And meanwhile the Southwest Is mili
tant J. Rosenbaum Brothers company,
Chicago, Wednesday, got this wire from
Wichita, Kan., hotbed of the agitation
against prevailing prices:
. "Reported here that farmers are
picketing country points and urging
farmers who happen to haul In wheat to
take it btck home. Those who deliver
wheat are hooted by strikers."
W. E. Freeman, president of Kansas
State Federation of Labor, was quoted
as saying: "The farmers are beginning
to realize that they. too. must strike in
opposition to those who control and
manipulate prices of their product"
The leaders of the farmers who have
called the "strike" were reported as
optimistic and "determined to see that
the growers would at least get a price
equal to the 'cost of producing the crop,
or not 40 sell it at alL"
