be present Monday evening at the
Oleo Diacuaaed )
A very Interesting discussion of
oleo took place during the report
of the agricultural committee and
several communications on tax
reduction read and discussed.
North Howell grange went on
record as advocating a change in
the Pomona grange meeting from
June to July. This would make
the Pomona meeting a regular
Quarterly meeting and It would
not conflict with state grange
dates, i - 7
l it would also enable many
members to attend who are too
busy with fruit harvest in June
to do so.
During the lecture hour a song

enjoyed and encored.
Mrs. Mattle Vinton gave a
