Tygh Valley Fair announced for
September 28-29-30. At a mass
meeting at Tygh Valley, Septem
ber 8th, 1920, called by the Fair
board of Tygh Valley Fair As'sn.
it was overwhelmingly demonstra
ted that all the towns in Southern
and Central Wasco county were
100 per ceut strong for a fair, de
spite the fact that the promised
division of the total fair fund was
cut in two. WitlKouly $600 as a
start it seemed ut hill work to
finance the full three days' pro
gram until public spirited men
from different districts pledged
themselves to meet the need by
raisiug the required funds.
The fair is iu no sense simply
to be a street caroiyal but an agri
cultural fair with full line of Btock
and products, premiums with
special school children club prizes.
The raciDg bill will be more com
plete, with attention to all side
lines of race sports, than in form
er years.
''Something Doing" is the key
uote. Patriotic and educational
program will start each day at
9:80 a. m., supported by a strong
musical program, with no dull
A Whirlwind Fair on short
notice. Following are the uameB

commiltees that represent the de
partments making up the Fair.

Be reudy to aid the heads o(
the committees if called on and
above all let's demonstrate thai
tbe Tygb Valley Fair is an annual
established fact that cannot be
killed by simply tbrotling the fail
fund rightfully due the fuir. A
strong fight 1b to bo made to oblaii
the division of the funds that wat
agreed upon last fall at the
County Court meeting iu The
Dalles.. It has been stated by
good authority that Supt. Grone-
wald and Frauk Driver, member
of the Wasco County Fair Board,
are willing to give tbe Tygh Fair
tbe sum agreed upon, but that

other two members of tho board
