Friday the 13th rolled out of the
eastern dawn with a que.- twist.
The wind, sighed ominously, thunder
head rolled up In the routheast,
threatening to bring hail and lightn
ing. Flags on high, poles hung
limply or wrapped around their
staffs; buffalo flies annoyed the
Cattle. The late moon arose in the
morning; dogs barked In answer to
the erratic coyotes; owls hooted In
the fore t fringes. Lucky was the
perron who got through tho day
without mishap. The fish took the
bait in, an uncanny manner but the
big majority of them refused to bite
deep enough to be hooked.

Past conferencca have been of
keen interest to educator through

worked out by the class under the
direction of Miaa Agnes Motlock,. of
Portland, chairman of the con
ference, promines to be of even
greater value.
The general topics will center
around the theme of "Raising Stan
dards of Teacher Training." Vital
topics will be discussed by such
. peakers as Dr. W. H. Burton of
Chicago University, and Dean Jss.
E. Jewell of the Oregon State Col
lege. Miss Julia Spooner, one of Port
lands outstanding class room teach
ers, will discuss the "Future Certi
fication of eachcrs," looking toward
the elimination of any with less than t
two years' training after 1931, and!
limiting certification for teaching
after 1939 to those with at least
four years work beyond High school.

Col. A. G. Bruitt, nationally
known geologist, whose exploitation
of numerous oil and metal fields
with great success has caused him to
he looked upon as almost Infallible
In locating oil territory, recently
sent a letter to the secretary of the
Clarno Basin Oil company, in which
he reiterates his faith In the Clarno
basin as an oil bearing region.
Col. Bruitt states that the scdl
mentaries in the regfion seem to be
of proper origin and depth and with
prolific organic matter to jurtify the
j belief that commercial oil will be
found In some of the lower sand
stone layers. The structural condi
tion of the ground is favorable for a
gathering place and there ia a wide
area from which oil could be collect
ed, he declares.
"You have sufficient hydro-stat
ic pressure to act as a
agent With these facts in evident
it surely looks very favorable and I
hope you will have good success with
your drilling operations until you
will reach an oil sand," the, gcalog-
ist writei.
Col. Burritt is actively interested
In the development of the John Day
conl and oil lands, owning some
stock in this latter concern. Both
the Clarno and John Day projects
are financed largely by local capital.

; A few little boys bearing matches
started a fire in an old tin bucket
in Greene' canyon Tuesday after
noon. The wind blew the bucket
over, the fire communicating with
dried grass and quickly covered a
large area. Chief Chalmers with a
corps of volunteers combatted the
flames, confining .them to the can
yon, except In one instance when the
fire reached the old road and burned
over the point back of the church.
The fire gave a chance to test the

Kaylor Top Yield Wheat
37 Bushel Per Acra
Ray Kaylor got into his wheat last
week and from 30 aereo threshed out
500 sacks of wheat or a little better
than 37 bushels to the acre. The
kernels were large and fully ripened.
Taking that figure as a basis it is
safe to say than an average of 30

By Doing so Weeds Will Not Have
Chance to Seed
Most persons do not realise what
an enormous number or seeds are
produced by weed . The number
varies with different weeds, but most
kinds produce from a hundred to
several thousand seeds per plant.
Weeds such as wild carrot, burdock,
and sowthi tle may produce 20,000
or more seeds per plant. Not all
weeds germinate at once, hut delay
sprouting for some time, some of
them for several years,
This fact is
rcsponrible for the old saying, "One
year s seeding makes seven years
weeding." The only sure way to
prevent annual and biennial weeds,
from increasing is to prevent them
from going to seed,

A hte bulletin from the Stat
Agricultural college says regarding
the wheat crop situation for 1928:
The new official estimate indi
cates a total United States wheat
crop about 70.00'j.o00 bushel lew
then last year. 3o,a traders are In
cliiied to argue that tha cron will b

of hard red winter i.i in progress and
this together with favor'Ie crop re
ports from Canada tended to depress
wheat markets la t week. Rye waa
dull and lower derpite unfavorable
prospects for the new crop. Crop
conditions and import requirements I
in Europe are little uncertain.
Thirty Fattest Plaaes oa Coast
Participate Hair RaUiag
Stua's Promised
A monster air circus in which
some thirty of the fa test planes on
the coast will participate will be one !
of the major attractions of the
American Legion convention at Med- i
ford, Auguest 2, 3 and 4. This will j
be staged under the direction of
Seely V. Hall, svte chairman of
aeronautics for the American Legion
and promises to be one of the most
compete aerial displays ever seen on
the Pacific coast.
Among the features to be shown
will be aerial races, loop contests,
dead stick landings to a mark with
motor cut off from 5,000 feet
aerial formations, wing walking,
acrobatic stunts, ruch as hanging by
toes and knees, from landing gear
from an airplane traveling one hun
dred miles an hour, wire work, rope
ladder act and a man changing from
one ship to another in mid-air at an
elevation of 5.000 feet at a speed of
100 miles per hour, cabin plane
races and aerial stunts of all kinds.
One of the irajor attractions and
possibly one of the most thrilling
stunts in mid-air will be a triple
parachute jump from an elevation
of 5,000 feet and bombing a minia
ture village by airplanes which will
give evidence of modern warfare
from the skies.
The'commission has also secured
the services of an aerial stunt man
who will crouch upon the centersec
tion of the upper wing of an airplane
and the pilot will loop the loop sev
eral times.
Among the dignitaries at this big

Skyline Trail Attraction
For Hundreds Daring
Very Hot Weather
Teats Pitched From Frog Lake to
Broitaaba.h, Near Mt.
All the lakes on the skyline trail
from Frog lake to Breitenbush, near
Mt Jefferson, are now open for
angling. . The road in ia fair shape
and all the gates are open.
Many devotees of Izaak Walton
are piching canvas along the trail
and many intend to remain in the
mountains until the hot weather
sub. ides. Here is a pointer for in
tending campers. Before entering
the reservation be sure to procure
a fire permit These may be got at
Zig Zag, Government Camp, and at
Clackamas lake. Don't wait until
you further south, as you may
te brought up with a tound turn
if you start a fire without first hav
ing obtained a permit. There are
many forest ranger in the moun
tains, and each one has his eye
trained to detect fires, and those
who are setting auch, even for pre
paration of meals, are liable to ar
rest and fine if they are not in pos
session of the nece&ary permit. Be
sure and extinguish each fire after
using, as smoldering coals have
started many fore.t fire with mil
lions of dollars of loss.

Contrary to some opinion, adver

the general stores were found to use

In general the Oregon figures
