Burns Delegation Meets
State Highway Commission
I Silver Creek and Crane Also Represented in Effort to
Obtain Better Roads for County; More Successful
Than Anticipated.
Burns had a large and representa
tive delegation In Portland this week
to meet with the State Highway Com
mlfsion to discuss road building. In
addition to those going down from
Burns (lure were alao wen from the
Silver Creek section and later one of
the citizen of Crane was present.
The 6elegtlu had in mind one
particular proposition when it start
ed to the metropolis, but upon get
ting on the ground and finding en
couragement from an unexpected
iource, they asked for more and got
It. This comes from having numbers
and the sporting spirit.
The road in mind when the dele
Itatinti itarted for Portland was one
between Hums and Suntex over on
Silver (reek. The delegation had re
ceived Information before going that
the Department of Agriculture had
approved the Burns-Lawen project.
It had been the intention to ask fur
ther consideration on this route and
possibly get a slight change of loca
tion that was desired In the Imme
diate vicinity of Lawen. but upon
consideration it was thought Impossi
ble after the approval of the Depart
ment. However, In apite of this. It
Is to have the attention of the engi
neers with favorable prospects.
Tbe members of the delegation had
been informed by the county court
that all available road money had
been appropriated for thla year but It can reasonably expect until such
which Harney will repny later In pro
portion to the amount expended. It
Is also committed to prepare as a
project the road between this place
and Suntex. Harney county to par
ticipate to the amount of $20,000,
available next year.
It was ascertained that Malheur
county has pledged $45,000 to use
on the Centra! Oregon Highway west
from Ontario; the project between
here and Crane is settled and the
link between this city and Silver
Creek is agreeable to the Commis
sion In 1920; Bend had a delegation
there who proposed to put $35,000
In on the project of an east and west
highway and secured the promise of
survey eust 17 miles from that place
towards Burns and this will be done
when a survey can be spared.

If present plans are worked out It
Is expected to have the gap between
the two terminals out of Bend and
this place connected In 1921 and the
connection between Crane and the
Malheur county line also done. It
will then be possible an all year road
east and west through the state to
conect with the Columbia highway.
This Is how the matter stands at
the present time and the delegation
feels It has accomplished as much as

Our agricultural forefathers went to the bank to borrow money. The present generation of boys
and girls gees to the bank, too but their mission Is to borrow calves and pigs. It Is the new keynote of
developing "Interest In farm life." Iowa alone this year has placed nearly 1000 high grade dairy heifer
calves under the care of boys and girls In the state. The bank buys the calves at reasonable price and
furnishes them to the boys at a low rata of Interest, the boy or girl to raise the animal selling at a big
profit In the fall. Calf distributing days evolve Into virtually a community holiday, as tbls picture from
Decorah. Iowa, shows The Insert shows a member of the club holding two calves which will furnish,
the foundation stock for a future Iowa herd.

the proposition was to present the
importance of the completion of the
entire distance between this point
and Crane this year and try to gt
the Commission to pledge ltsolf to
luoh a program without further obli
gation upon the part of this county.

The post road from Burns to Sun
tex, on Silver Creek, as a part of the
Central Oregon Highway was the
particular business before tbe people
and Harney county was ready to
pledge $25,000 next year to this pro
ject and ask the Commission to com
mit itself to the project.
Most of the delegates arrived in
Portland the day before the meeting
and Commissioner Mass and others
who knew members of the board,
obtained an uudlenee with the result
that Harney county was heard from
before the regular meeting and the
Commission took the proposal under
consideration to be answered the fol
lowing day when the session began.

A'most every county in the state Is

advisability of getting busy and vot

the early part of the week.
Mr. Jameson was sent in by tho
Bureau at tho request of local ranch

he explained the method of mixing
and using the poison recommended
