Madras Succumbs When
"Cubs" Play Football
Last Friday the Cubi traveled to
Madras, where they put up a frame
fight, which won them the first
victory of the season, 12 to 0.
The fir. t quarter started with a
bang, The Cube received and were
downed on the 30-yard line. Then
with few line plunges and end
rum the Cub found themselves
headed for touchdown. For the
third and fourth downs the Cube
ware HM with the hall half ovm
the goal line. Madra got the ball !
on the goal line and punted. Elton j
tnd carried it for a tochdown. Again
caught the punt on the 36-yard line
In the fourth quarter a pas from
Elton to Bill put the old pill over.
The Cubs showed much improvement
over their last game.
Fans remember that during past
seasons Madras has showed Maupin
how the game should be played, but
now the tubing have been turned and
Maupln has something to tearh as
well as to learn.
Those taking cars were Vrrle

GRADE SCHOOL HAPPENINGS
Sevenlh ..J Fitfhth Notes
The parents of several of the
Seventh and Eighth grade pupili
visited achool last week. They were
Mrs. D. D. Wilson, Mrs. P. J. Klrsch
tnd Mrs. E. A Troutinan.
A spelling content waa held in ths
Seventh and Eighth grade room last
week. Henry Wilson and Douglas
Rothwell were the leaders. It seems
as though Henry knows his spellers,
as his tide usually wins.
The following pupils took part In
the Columbu Day program, which
was held in the High school audi
torium: Ralph Kaiser, Jean Rcnick,
Henry Wilson and Theodore Kirsch.
The Seventh and Eighth grades re-
;peclfully challenge the same grades
of the Wapinitia schoob to a spell
ing match, to be held there at some
date in the near future.
Fifth and Siath Grade Notes
Alice Greene and Allcne Wilson
had the highest averages in spelling
in the Sixth grade, as did Emery
Crofoot of the Fifth grade. Dorothea
sparkled in the arithmetic test. Les
lie did well in history and Margaret
In geography. Watch for many
newcomers at the next test.
Thi-. year we arc putting the re
sult of written examinations on the
report cards in the Fifth and'Sixth
praties. Some are not so high as they
might be but we must remember
that Fifth grade people have had
little practice iii formal lexamina
tioiiB. However, a good student
should be able to write acceptable
answers to simple que. tions usually
asked. It is generally an incentive
to better work if the pupil knows
his parents will examine his. grades.
The papers are kept on file In the
class room for . Inspection. The
examination averages arc raised if

FiUow Farmers, Attention:
Our county court pays out 11800
of county taxes and the state and
federal governments fumish $2,600
of our state and federal taxes (it
was nearly all our money in the first
place, farmers paying more than
their share of all taxes) to hire a
farm expert t ohelp us farm, bat we
tr tot permitted to tall kirn WHERE
ke shall work or WHAT he shall do.
He It boteec! by outsiders!
We farmers are treated like child-
re" wno n' supposed to know
,wh,t u begt. or thcm anl our "hi'-
ed man" is established in an office at
the very foot of Wasc0 county, and
w farmers are compelled to travel
from 25 to 100 miles one way to
reach hie office, if we want to see
kin i par ion for special kelp! Use
of a telephone is often a vexation
and requests by mail mean delay
and perhapg, no answer.
Our "hired man's" traveling ex
penses were budgeted at $700.00
for 1929, and you and I have to foot
this huge bill, or most of it along
with the rest of the $4,400 budget
ed for the county agent's office for
1929. The traveling expenses
mount up to $700.00 a year simply
because the agent is located far
from the center of farm activities
and farm population, and he has to
consume much valuable time and
git when visiting us. We pay him
but we can't tell him what we want
done, neither can we locate bis of
fice near the center of Wasco coun
ty farming population where it
should be. We welcome outside ad
vice; we reeaat outiide dictation.
Since we farmers of central and
southern Wasco county are not
given a square deal in this matter,
we should join together in demand
ing tnat tne county court cease
paying out our tax money in the
employment of farm expert who
is really not our agent doing what
we here planned for him to do but
the agent of the extension depart
