PROOF OF THE PUDDING
Many people stated that Senator
Elect Steiwer would not succeed to
any important committe appoint
ments when he took his seat in the
senate Now comes tha statement
that inasmuch as he will be one of
the few newly elected senators who
are in accord with the administra
tion's policy, that his chances to se
cure a seat on the best and most im
portant committees of the upper
house, are growing better every day.
His colleague. Senator McNary, is a
member of the agriculture commit
tee, ranking republican member of
the irrigation and reclamation, com
merce, manufacturing, and second
ranking on the Indian affairs com
mittee. With Senator McNary hold
ing berths on the important commit
tees he will be in a position to re
commend the appointment of Sena
taor Steiwer to some of them. It is
more than provable that both Ore
gon senators will secure appoint
ments on every committee in which
It is said that "money talks." No
doubt it does in loud tones to thosi
who are mixed up in the campaign
contribution scandals throughout
various sections of the country.

country rir-wspayer should be neu

Some people cannot take a joke.
Those people who advised one of
the mentioned in oud "Picked Up"
column to get mad at the editor for
what he said, in a joking way, are
known to us and they may have a
chance to take on a mad fit all of
their own sometime.

Enthusiastic Youngsters Tell How
They Grew and Prepared Ex
hibits For South Wasco Fair
I have been in the potatoe club
fnr three years and I want to say
that I have enjoyed the work very
I have found it very hard in pick
ing my potatoes for the exhibit, be
cause of the potatoes taking second
growth. They have so many knobs
After coming in from my day's
work, I dug two sacks of my pota
toes and from these I picked my ex
hibit. Then I hitched a nineteen
year old horse to a one-horse-shay
which came to this country in the
year 1912, and delivered my pota
toes to my club leader.
The financial summary of my po
tntoe project is:
Total receipts $118.50
Total expenses 24.00
Profit $ 94.50
Arthur N. Appling, Criterion.
This is my third year in the pota
toe club and I like the work fine.
We had one of the club meetings at
the swimming pool on Deep Creek.
I caught three gophers in my po
tato field. They are hard to catch,
but I kept setitng my traps until I
My potatoes are a fair crop this
year, but have Becond growth, which
makes quite a few rough potatoes.
I dug; eight sacks to get my pota-
itoej for the Fair.
Theodore Kirsch, Criterion.
Garden Club Project
My work this year has been
almost a failure. My garden was
hit with the blight and my beans
made all the vines and no beans. The
potatoes did the worst of all. They
took second growth and were small
and rough. But this does not dis
courage me. I am going to take
gardening next year.
Jesse Addington, Maupin.
Bee Club Project i
When I first took up the Bee club ,
project I had two colonies of bees
that my father gave fie. On April J
10th I divided one hive and about
two weeks later I divided the other
hive. The hive made the second
time I divided failed to make a 1
queen, so our leader, Mr. Guynup, j
had to come over and fix them up. I
About this time I took my bees to j
Criterion, Oregon, where they be- i
gan to improve. One of my hives
lost its queen so I set it on my
I August 19th I extracted 19 lbs of
honey and estimated that honey in
the hives to be about 70 lbs.
Doris Bonney, Criterion.
On April 23, 1926 I got 25 An
cona chickens by parcel post That
evening I put five little chickens un-
ider a Barred Rock hen. The next
morning I gave them all to her. The
next morning when I went to feed
them one was drowned in the hens'
drinking fountain. When they were
three weeks old I went out one even
ing and she had them on the roosts.
In July one of my little pullets got
her foot hurt. I brought her to the
house and cared for her. She is well
now. She stayed around the house,
and one day she fell in the swill can
and Mother rescued her. I like my
Ancona chickens and expect to have
more next year. I gather a litte An
cona egg every day.
Betty Slusher, Maupin.
I have been sewing for three
years. I am in the second division.
Four of the sewing and cooking girls
got a trip to Summer school. I was
one of the lucky ones. We learned
many useful things. I think my
sewing looks very nice, and so do the
I am going to take sewing again
Doris Kelly, Maupin.
Sewing Club Project
The first time we had our club
we met at the school house, planned
what we were going to make and
made different kinds of stitches.
The next time we made our needle
case, and estimated what we needed
for our next article. We began to
meet at the club leader's house to
make our articles.
We all examined our work each
time we met. I did my work at
school and at home. I love to do
club work as I learned to be patient
and do my work well.
I had to rip lots, but I never gave
up. "If at first you don't succeed
try, try again."
Dorothy Hood, White River.
I have taken and enjoyed sewing
for three whole years. I have
always taken a prize, if not always
first. I will finish. three years of
sewing this year.
I got a trip to the "Boya and
Girls" summer school at O. A. C.
I learned many useful things in sew
ing as well as in many other things.
We have a very nice leader fn our
club. She has always tried to make
our work pleasant for us. I am sure
that all the girls of club No. 1, Mau
pin, Oregon, appreciate what Mrs.
L. D. Kelly has done for us this year
and in past years.

Home Making Project
In my home making the most in
teresting work I found was the iron
ing. The marketincr Was Tint at nil
difficult as we have a gardon and
iruu trees of all kinds. The fly
eradication was not hard atr the
people rf our community have
always fought flics and wc have not
many barns, as we live in town. ;
Crystal Stuart, Maupin.
For a long time I have admired
the homemaking course because of
its practical teachings, bo this
spring when Mr, Groncwald came to
our school for the purpose of organ
izing clubs I took up this project.
The work has not been hard as it
consisted of the simple home tasks
which we do every day and I have
learned to do these tasks well and
Winifred Kaiser, Maupin.
I have taken up cooking every
since I was nine years old. Two
years I have won first priie in my
cooking at the county fair and I got
to go to the State fair. Last year I
took Rural Home Beautification. I
won first prize at the Wasco county
fair and first at the State fair.
From this I got to go to Corvallis
this summer. My three brothers and
one sister have all won trips to the

When I signed up I thought that
I was taking camp cookery, but they
didn't have a camp cooking club, but
I went ahead.
