". Who said Eastern Oregon was a desolate wa-te of snow and frost? .Whoever it was is invited . to visit Ihe Deschutes valley at this time. Should he come he would be greeted , by singing birds, a breath of spring, bursting pussy willows and an at mosphere as healthful and life-giving as can be found anywhere in the world. The chinook winds of the past few days have about cleared the snow from this section. The hillsides are bare and but a small coating re mains on the fields. The best of the thaw ia that the water, inrtead of running to the river, has sunk in to the ground, thus insuring a bounti ful yield of wheat the coming sea son. .. C C. Chapman, publisher of The Oregon Voter, was recently charged by a certain legislator with main taining and directing a lobby in the state , house for the purpose of in fluencing legislation inimical to pub lie owner, hip of utilites. Editor Chapman easily disproved the charge and the legislature absolved him from the charge. C. C. Chapman is one of the big men er.gagedt in journalistic pur suits in Oregon. His Voter ia one outstanding medium of education along political lines and his counsel and advice has been asked and ac cepted on numerous occasions. That he would be cleared of such a charge as was laid against him was not boubted. by a single publisher in this state, and the fact that he in vited drastic inquiry into his work at A Farce Comedy in Three Acts to be presented by the Willing: Workers of Dufur, Oregon, under the auspices of Troop 33 Boy Scouts of America at the Legion Hall, Maupin, Ore., IN CAMP Admission: Reserved Salem carried treat weight with tho. e who were appointed to Inventi on to him, crowned him with a halo of tight iid good purpose.

Each room of the grudea was repre sented and with a varied program of songs, dialogues, drills and playlets entertained a large gathering for netrly two hours. Several of the offerlnga partook of the comical, and each elicited loud applause. Those taking part showed they had been carefully drilled and rendered their lines with -promptness and a clearness seldom heard from little ones. The drills, especially, were fine. The Flag drill, in which 20 pupils took part, was better than waj expected, little Louise Duus carrying of the chief honors, sho sppcuring as comman der of the forces. The fan drill by Jean Renlck, Bcrnice Hollis, Doro thy Greene and Francis Lindley was also worthy of special mention. The little girls went through the intra cacies of the drill with great preci sion and their natural grace added to the effect of their evolutions. Perhaps the outstanding feature of the evening's entertainment was the February play. All the pupils from the six grades took part and the birthdays of many celebrated persons were remembered as well as those people in rpeaking repre sentation. Bernice Hollis took the part of Miss February and chowed rtr.l Urumntic Went We would like to make individual mention of each one taking part, but space forbids. Each one did fine and should their teachers again attempt a similar entertainment pur people would be assured one of the be. t .and most pleasing shows possi ble by little folks.

"INSIDE INFORMATION , Ecea should not be handled in the early spring any more than neces sary.. Opening a hive in cool weather wastes heat and may even kill the brood. It is a good plan to wrap hives in black tar paper in the spring, to conserve heat and hold the sun's rays. Put is on as soon as the bees start flying in the spring. Milk may! be used in b'read-mak-fng to improve the nutritive value of the loaf, and also Improve its appearance through the fine golden brown crust and more creamy color and better texture of the crumb. Dried skim or evaporated milk will give good results as well as fresh whole milk. FIXED STEEL HEAD QUESTION House Settle Matter by.
