Westside Agricultural Fair
One Round of Pleasure
(Prom Saturday's Dally)
Prom tho plo eating contest to tho
exhibit ot imtchwork quilts, tho fair
hold at tho Tumalo community hull
yostcrday attornoon under tho aus
pices ot tho West Sldo AKrlculturat
Fair Association was one grand suc
cess. A dinner was served at noon
and followed by speeches by County
Agriculturalist It. A. Ward and J. T.
Jllnkle, ot Hormlston. J. . u
Corking was chairman ot tho occas
ion and Introduced the speakers.
Mr. Hlnklo confined his remarks
to an urgent plea for tho community's
backing In the campaign for funds
vlth which to reclaim the arid lands
of tho United States. "When tho
President Is saying that tho food pro
ducts must bo doubted next year, the
tlnio has come for tho nation to look
to tho Irrigated lands. Tho recla
mation ot arid lands in the west
would glvo this country what would
equal three states more of territory
acquired, without bloodshed and for
tho same cost as that of three weeks
ot modern warfare," ho said.
Among tho exhibits thero was n
wldo range ot variety, which, accord
ing to popular opinion, would have
amply represented a much larger
community. The hall was crowded
to the limit with vegetables, fruits,
needlework, culinary products, grains
and grasses and flowors. William
Henderson took first prixo on the
general frolt display. C. I Becker
entered strawberries that would do
credit to Hood River In June. The
potato exhibit contained an unusual
number of large tubers. The farm
ers this yoar had made a special ef
fort to produce a few standard kinds
adapted to tho locality.
Canned goods entered by both the
ladies and school children were in
far larger quantities than in previous
years and gave evidence that food
preparcdnss is being carried out.
Tho conipleto list of promtums was
not available yesterday, but will bo
published next week.
At 2:30 tho crowd of visitors ad
journed to tho main stroot whoro n
number ot contests wcro In progress.
Tho following are tho wlnuurs:

was a worth-while spectacle. A very
small tot took second placo, but had
a tow crumbs left on his plate when
tlmo was called. A man Inquired ot
him how big ho thought tho confec
tion was.
"Qee," was tho reply, "that was
some plo. I guess It was more n
three miles around."
llcntl visitors had a monopoly on
tho 100-yard dash. Charles Krsklno
earned his shnro of tho tlo by falling
flat on the last lap and running sev
eral chunks ot tho lava road Into his
hands, and besides picking up a fow
cubic yards of Deschutes county on
his clothing.
Slow was no name for the first
automobile race, yet In spit of the
fact that tho object was to cross the
tape last, the first car which did so
carried off the honors. The truth of
the matter Is that all the rest ot them
went so slow they died before arriv
ing at the Judges. One expired only
two feet from the line, after having
gone two blocks at snail's pace.
