several hundred at once at nominal cost.

TO SAVE SCENERY
Picnicing Spots and Wooded
Areas Said to be Fading
Away Rapidly, t
Portland. Initial steps for launch
ing a statewide "Save . Oregon
Scenery League" : were taken at a
meeting of the - outdoor recreation
committee of the Portland , Chamber
of Commerce, members of the high
way commission and other interested
parties. . An ; organization. , meeting
will be called later.
The primary purpose of the move
ment is the saving of scenic spots
along the highways of the state and
the creation of parks and recreation
al areas. ; . . '
H. B. Van Duzer and Judge Robert
W. Sawyer, members of the highway
commission, assured the 'gathering
that they were heartily in accord with
the movement. f
"Points that a few years ago were
accessible to the public for picnick
in? and other recreation have disap
peared one by one," said Dean Eric
W. Allen of the University of Ore
gon school of journalism. "The
tendency is to fence in more of these
open areas and to reduce further the
number of locations for public enjoy
ment of Oregon's outdors."
Dean Allen, who has made an ex
tensive study of the scenic and rec
reational phases of the highway sys
tems, pointed out how the "Save the
Redwoods league" of California had
Rtotmed the cutting of big timber
alone- the Redwood highway and con
trasted it with the situation prevail
ing on many of Oregon's highways.
"It is regrettable, but the impes
sion one receives upon entering Ore
- gon after passing through the giant
redwood forests, is not too favorable,"
be said. "Our big trees are gone from
many of our- highways. Second
growth and stumps mark where they
stood.; Unless adequate steps are
taken, in a few years there will be
few areas, where our old growth firs
nnr real timber, can be seen from
J. C. ' Ainsworth. president of the
TTnitAd States National bank, a lead
ing exponent of the movement, de
rlared that immediate action was de-
sirable. "Every six months we delay
will be our loss." he said.
It was suggested by several that
there are numerous owners of s:eivc
and recreation areas adjacent to high-
wavs who would be willing to deed
the property to the state under the
nrce of a state-wide scenic conssr
vation movement, V 7

Warm Rain Bring Grass
Warm rains have fallen in the Wal
Iowa section for several days. The
warm weather and rains are proving
beneficial in giving the new grass
chance of getting an early start On
some of the early range areas the
grass is reported to be starting up
nicely and some stock are being plac
ed on the ranges While most farm
ers and stockmen still have plenty
of hay on hand to feed their stock
several weeks, all welcome a change
of getting at least a part of the stock
on grass. Winter, wheat crops are
showing up well and report from
farmers say they have not noticed
any places where the grain has been
