The building activities of 192C
will likely far exceed those of the
present year in Salem. Some big
projects are already in, sight, and
others on the tapis.
Work is progressing on the New

splendid publication to go to the
people of the east who are look
ing for more room and better conditions.
Oregon beekeepers will hold
state convention at The Dalles,
