The Tyffh Valley Fair of South
ern Wasco county has again been
realized -eiKht consecutive years
-with an agricultural fair, Btock
and other exhibits as required to
fulfill the true spirit and pur
pose and meet the demands of a
county agricultural fair.
Lt us look back over the year
that has gone. From an agri
cultural standpoint we were
never entitled to a good fair
more than in 1920. A cloud was
thrown over the southern part of
the county by the severe cut in
the fair fnnrs for the eighth an
nual fair at Tyfh Valley. It
staggered us to think of financ
Ing a fair on $000, but public
won out. The enthusiam of
Southern Wasco county spread
northward toward The Dalles
until the county superintendent
and county court and fair board
swelled the fund to 925.00. The
balanci had to be made up from
gate receipt!) and personal pledg
es. The fair has been held and
no debts incurred. This speaks
well for ihe people and the fair
What abfit the exhibits? They
were below standard, not De
cause we lacked the products
no - but du to the damper
thrown over the district by the
announcement that the fair had
been killed by the action of the
. We did the best we could but
what about next year ;' it is not
too early nor is it too late now
to think of our fair for 1921.
Sunday the fair board and
others who are public spirited
will meet at Tygh Valley to con
sider the next fair.
The departments of the fair
are many and must each he
handled by a committee hem.
who is responsible for the work
of the department.
The committee on concessions
will know 30 to 60 days before
the next fair dale all about the
Committee on races and sports
will know just what program-
races, games and contests are to
go on and a separate race pro
gram will be published and scat
tered broadly in advance. Thus
through the several departments
the good work must be done to
insure success for 1921.
Exhibits must be thought of at
seed time and from then to har
vest must be carefully studied
and selected and kept against
that day of the fair. Any less
loyalty or service will spell fail
ure for the exhibits.
The stock, fowls, swine and
rabbits, etc, must be found.
Many good horses, stock and
hogs this year did not appeal
that should have been featured.
A man cannot say he is 100 per
cent loyal who with holds bit
