"More benefit will come to
those who participate in these ex
hibits, as well as to those who
come to view them, even though
some of them may seem small or
of minor importance, than can
ever come from carnival or side
show attractions. With a suitable
mental attitude such a classified
land products display can be more
interesting and entertaining than
any carnival.
"Become a part of this great
show yourself. The premiums of

you do not care to win a premium
it is worth something to you to
have your products officially com
pared with those of others.
"The primary purpose of the
land products show is to promote
the standardization of Oregon
land products, to make them most
acceptable to buyers in the mar
kets of the world."
