THE OREGON STATESMAN. SALEM, OREGON
Farms, Austin, Minn,, Is
Hatching Eggs from Their
White Leghorns, Headed
Square Garden, January,
alo their fittest breeders. Three
and one half years afro, Septem
ber, 191ft, Oak Dale Farms pur
chased the complete flock of D.
W. Voting, then of Monroe, X.
Y . inelndinr his entire founda
tion stock, made up of many prize
winner at Madison Square Gar
den and elsewhere. Practically
uone of these Young birds were
sold by Oak Oale Farms and com
paratively few hatching eggs. On
the contrary this stock. In the
n.ain. aiso the bulk of eggs pro
duced by them during the hatch
ing season, have been reserved
by Oak Dale for foundation stock.
Recently, Arthur O. Schilling of
Buffalo, X. ., well known poul
try artist, visited Oak Dale Farms
to make catalogue illustrations of
numerous choice breeders pro
duced from the original Young
stork and that purchased in Uan-i-ary
of this year from Owen
Farms. While In attendance at
the third and final meeting of
the A. P. A. Committee of Forty
at Buffalo, we talked with Mr
Schilling about this visit, during
which Interview he said, in sub
i "Yes. they have theeal thing
at Oak Dole Farms. Of course
during my three days' visit, and

an intelligent comment on them,
but at the home plant I saw 40

Oak Dale Farms own today a
larper number of superior qual
ity S C. White Leghorns than
any otner poultry plant in tti
world. And why shouldn't they?
We need to remember what they
lro;itlit about thre years ago
iioin that past-master in the
breeding of 9. ('. White Leghorn?.
D. W. Young, and how they re
cently added he entire Owen
farms iiock, consisting or over
1 200" birds. Including Mr. De
lano's winners at Madison Square
Garden, at Hoston. etc.
"And the Oak Dale Farms neo-
rfe understand the valu of this
Yonng stock. I say 'Young stock'
because, as we all know, the Owen
Farms stock originated from some
of D. W. Young's master prod
ucts: therefore in acquiring the
Owen Firms White leghorns the
Osk Dc::e people have simply
idded further choice specimens of
the same blood. While I was at
Oak Dale Farms working on the
illustrations for their 1921 cata
'ofcue and matin; list I was told
that they intended to ask $10 per
fFR. or 81S0 pr setting of 1".
for their lest mating, headed by
hat wonderful first prize cock
hown by Mr. Delano at this
vear's Garden show, believed to
he the finest S. C. White Leghorn
male ever produced and exhibit
ed. My opinion was asked about
the value of hatching eggs from
this mating and I told them
frankly tha I believed they are
truly worth $10 apiece. I saw
and examine every female in
this mating and each bird is a
star of the first magnitude. More
over, they are expertly mated, not
only as to blood lines, but on the
basis of individual characteris
tics and any purchaser who is so
fortunate as to get 15 hatching
eggs from this pen will obtain
value received, if he has average
good luck as to the number or
rhlcks hatched and then raises the
chicks In a porper manner."
There can be no question but
that hatching eggs can be worth
$10 each. It will be recalled that
Mr. Kellerstrass, in bis laudable
ambition to set this new price,
limited the sale to five settings
that many and no more. A
coint of special importance in the
ase of the price thus placed by
Oak Dale Farm on this "best mating-
is the fact that all who are
able to place orders with them
or these particular eggs WILL
GET WHAT THEY ORDER.
That is one comforting point in
asking such a price they can af
ford to deliver the goods.

Six, piloted by Hart L. Weaver and carrying a crew
of five men from the Chester N. Weaver Company,
was the first automobile to reach the Yosemlte Na
tional Park over any one of the three snow covered
roads tinder Its own power this year. The, car went
over the narrow and dangerous Coulterville road,
bucking snow as deep as tea feet in some places,
arriving In Yoeemite Valley, January 16.
2. Round Trip Record Between Kan Franrbo-o
and Loh Aageles. On February 2 the same car,
driven by Hart L. Weaver and James V. Ourley of
the Chester N. Weaver Company, established a new
round trip record between San Francisco and Los
Angeles.. a distance of 864.8 miles, in the sensational
time of 21 hours and 23 minutes.
3. Coutt Route Record from San Francisco to
Lou Angeleft. On the round trip record of February 2
the Studebaker Light-Six lowered the coast route
record from San Francisco to Los Angeles by 2 hours.
35 minutes and 20 seconds. The former record was
12 hours, 47 minutes and 50 seconds, the time of
the Studebaker Light-Six being 10 hours, 12 min

The pilots were Hart L. Weaver and James F. Gurley.
4. Valley Route Record Between Ixm Angeles

Light-Srx smashed the valley route record between
Los Angeles and San Francisco, running the dis
tance of 411.1 miles in the remarkable time of 9
hours, 15 minutes and CO seconds. This record was
made all the more remarkable on account of the car
having to jro through a dense fog a distance of more
than 100 miles between Tulare and Merced. The
pilots were Hart L. Weaver and James F. Gurley.

ing of March 23 the Light-Six left Los Angeles la
an attempt to lower the fifth and only remalslng
record of consequence onithe Pacific Coast. The
422 miles of desert trail frim Los Angeles to Phoe
nix were made in 13 hours, il 6 minutes, and 2 boars,
28 minutes were taken Irom the best previous
automobile record. The railroad time is 14 hours, 20
minutes, or 1 hour 4 minutes slower than the record
established by the LIght-Sljf.;
Hart L. Weajrer of the Chester X. Weaver Com
pany, Studebaker Distributors in San Francisco,
made the following statement after the completion
of the Los Angeles-Phoenix-run:
"These tests have demonstrated on the road every
thing that Studebaker engineers have claimed for
the new Light-Slx-cylinder 'ear. When it is remem
bered that the bore and stroke of this car is only
3Mx4tt, giving It a piston: displacement, of 207
cubic Inches, and that thenar fully equipped only
weighs 2500 pounds, these records are all the more
remarkable since most of them were formerly .held
by heavier cars costing much more than the Stude
baker Light- Six. I am Inclined to believe that the
secret of this car's wonderful performance, and road
ability is due in a very large measure to Its remark
able balance. Halved or quartered the parts of the
new Llxht-Six would weigh approximately the same.
"In making the Los Aligeles-Phoenrx record I
am frank to confess that despite my faith in the
stamina of Studebaker automobiles 1 could not be
lieve that any car could nfake the speed over the
desert road with its ruts aad chuck holes that was
necessary in order to lower vthe record by a large
margin without (ailing, to pieres. Any automobile,
