excellent entertainment of a kind
seldom seen in a school. Not only
was the play high class but the act
ing and singing was above the aver
age. There was no leading man or
woman. Oopportunities for display
of dramatic talent were rather ev
enly distributed throughout, and
every character was well portrayed.
As Uncle Eph. remarked: "There
is considerable dramatic talent in
Boardman," and his play was well
calculated to call it forth.
Since there was no leading man or
woman in the play it may also be re
marked that there was no leading
man or woman in the preparation of
the entertainment. The entire school
staff was behind it and cheerfully
contributed to its success. Even the
business men, and neighbors on the
project cooperated in a most help
ful manner, loaning clothing for
costumes, and properties for the
stage. It was Boardmau's day and
The audience, though not overly
large, was appreciative and showed
a kindly sympathetic interest in the
work of the children thus giving to
Uncle Ephraim a clearer vision of
the "bright side of life."
For the Play
Mrs. Crowder and Mr. Mulkey
trained the speakers, arranged the
details in stage performan'.'o

At the tree planting gathering at
De Moss Springs, Sherman county,
the following speeches were delivered:
To the school children of Sher
man county -On behalf of the
Boardman Community school, I pre
sent to you these seeds from our lo
cust trees. If you plant and keep
them well watered for a time they
will produce manifold. They can
and then be transplanted wherever de
sirable, and will help to beautify
not only your highways, but your
homos as well.
In the heart of a seed,
Iluried deep, so deep;
A dear little tree lay fast asleep.
"Wake," said the sunshine,
"And creep to the light."
"Wake," said the voice of the rain
The little tree heard,
And it rose to see
What the beautiful outside
World might be be.

L. P. Davidson one of the county
commissioners, with Wm. McCaleb,
road supervisor from the south end
of the county, were in Irrigon look
ing over the ferry road Saturday.
They are figuring on a direct road
from the ferry to the Columbia
Highway and will have same post
ed at once. It will not be possible
to do anything on thl road for a
year or so, however, and the present
road will be repaired for the time
being. Six hundred feet of plank
road will be put in where sand has
caused some trouble and other
patches fixed up temporarily.
Regular monthly meetings of the
farm bureau was held in the high
school auditorium Saturday evening,
April 5, and some very important
business discussed, Including! state
income tax question and the coun
ty school unit plan. The bureau
went on record as opposed to state
income tax on account of its effect
upon the state and practically no
reductions in taxes due to income
tax collections. Its repeal was rec
ommended at the earliest possible
date. The County School Unit plan
was likewise condemned along the
same lines, as being fostered by a
few for the purpose of making big
paying positions and additional tax
es and graft. The only way to re
duce taxes is to discontinue voting
additional graft and useless taxes.
R. B. Wilcox, president of the
Morrow County. Farm Bureau, with
his two daughters and boy, also
County Agent Morse attended this
n ting. Mr. Wilcox gave us a leng
thy talk on the dairy cow while his
children demonstrated milk testing
and methods of keeping records. Mr.
Morse talked at some length on the
rabbit poison campaign question and
arrangements were made to cover
the territory thoroughly with paste
bait on cedar shingles. Gates will be
placed on all bridges over the main
canal to keep the rabbits back in thej
sage brush country. Forces are ,
lined un to do this work on Sunday
