There's more to farming with a Fordson than
the mere turning of wider furrows faster. There's
more to it than the mere increased crop yields
that make you smile when you meet your banker.
More than either of these is the fact that the
Fordson has taken the drudgery out of farming:.
The Fordson way of farming has made it a busi
ness, not a slavery to weather conditions.
Farming jn many sections of the country is as
big a gamble as the roulette wheel. This is be
cause the time of planting is so short, the amount
of moisture so uncertain and harvest days likely
to come and go so fast.
The Fordson way of farming removes the
greater part of this gamble. Seed beds can be
prepared and harvest over with in double quick
time by working a Fordson day and night if nec
essary. The better tractor built seed bed con
serves the moisture and makes a better crop yield
with less rainfall than before.
A pleasant and profitable existence is the ser
vice the Fordson can render.
Beware of imitation Ford and Fordson parts.
They are more expensive in the end.

SOME CHANGES IN
COURSE OF STUDY
University of Oregon, Eugene In
an address to the Principals' club, an
organization made up of more than
GO high school principals and super
intendents in the state, J. A. Church
ill, state superintendent of public in
struction, outlined the new course of
study for the Oregon grade and
high schools, which will be in effect
for two years from next September.
Superintendent Churchill appealed
to the schoolmen present to carry out
faithfully the provisions of the state
law providing for 20 minutes of
physical education daily for every
student in the public schools. This
exercise, the superintendent pointed
out, must be taken in the regular
school period and not at recesses, and
special games and sports, in which
only part of the children can partici.
pate, ought not to be substituted.
The new physical education courses
was prepared under the direction o'
John F. Bovard, dean of the school of

! Upon his return, Mr. Moore
swapped his light six "Studo" for a
special six of the same make, having
come to the conclusion on his trip
that he wanted a heuvier machine.
He made the deal with G. C. Skinner

only required about 'steen minutes to

vided for the tourist, this is the ideal !
way to travel during the summer j
The party visited "The Caves", aj
chain of wonderful nutural caverns j
in the Siskivou mountains. These j
caves are the property of the govern-j
ment and every possible precaution j
is used to prevent the destruction ot
their natural beauties. At the en-i
ranee to the caves, the tourists are I
provided with torches and coveralls,
and are conducted by guides thru
the subterranean passages. Here are
immense rooms, Keveral hundred
feet in length, the ceilings hung
thick with stalactites, while from th!
floor reach up stalagmites of vary
ing lengths and grotesque shapes, de
posits of lime, left by th constant
dripping for thousands of years, o!
water from the roof of the caves.
The entire surface of the rooms is
wet, and the light from the torches
reflected on the dripping formations,
forms a picture that, for beauty anrt
grandeur beggars description. In
one of the caverns is a pillar some 12
inches through, which scientists
have estimated was formed from the
constant dripping at that particular
spot for the last 80,000 years. While
these figures must necessarily be
but an estimate, the immense pillar
has without doubt, been ages in as
suming its present proportions, the
amount of lime deposited by one drop
of water being so infinitesimal as to
be invisible to the naked eye, but for
nges the water has dripped here con
tinuously, until there it stands, a
pillar of lime, seven feet high and
more than a foot in diameter.
