Oregon State College. Bankers of
Oregon last year spent close to $30,
000 on agriculture projects, attended
152 meetings devoted to agriculture,
and sponsored specific: banker-farmer
projects that involved 565 indi
vidual farmers or farmer boys.
This record was so far superior to
that of any other state bankers' as
sociation that the Oregon organiza
tion has been given a national rating
of "perfect plus" by the national
agricultural commission of the Amer
ican Banker's association which con
ducts competitive scoring of farmer
banker work each year.
"Banker-farmer , work in Oregon
carried on under the direction of the
bankers' agricultural committee and
the state may be proud," says Dan H.
Otis, chairman of the agricultural
commission. "These results have been
accomplished through years of organ
ized effort in which the state college
has had an important part."
In recognition of the Oregon record,
the A. B. A. has paid the expenses of
Eugene Courtney, Woodburn, chair
man of the agricultural committee;
T. P. Cramer, secretary of the state
association, and Paul V. Maris, dhec
tor of extension, on a trip to the na
tional convention in Virginia where
they are putting on the only state
display. In addition the major part
of the national monthly bulletin for
May is given over to stories and pic
tures concerning this state.

in the affair, and the scores of pio
neers present to witness the contrast
between modern and ancient agri

to this contrast.

Two Murders Committed
Over Refusal to Use Cars
Two ,15 year old farm boys were
in jails in Clark county, Washington,
and Polk county, Oregon, less than
sixty miles apart facing charges of
murdering three persons, two women
and one man, in two separate coun
ties on the same day for practically
the same reason the desire to drive
One of the youths is Clifford Camp
bell, who Sheriff R. E. Crite of Clark
county, said confessed that he fired
the blast of dynamite which killed
Benjamin Northrup, 55, and his wife,
Mrs. Louise Northrup, 51, and reduc
ed their modest farm home near
Heisson, Wash., to splinters.
The other youth is Dale Lawson,
who confessed to shooting Mrs.
George Dickinson, 45, in her farm
home in Polk county, near Independ
ence, Ore. Young Lawson was held to
the grand jury on a charge of mur
der. He told W. W. Harcombe, Polk
county district attorney, he slew Mrs.
Dickinson because she objected to his
using the Dickinson automobile for a
pleasure trip to Portland.
The blast which killed the North
rups in Clark county occurred just be
fore midnight Wednesday and Lawson
is said to have shot and killed Mrs.
Dickinson Wednesday morning.
tn the confession Campbell is said
by Clark county authorities to have
made, the youth declared he did not
mean to kill the farm couple but to
cripple them because they refused to
allow him the use of the family auto
mobile, a new small car.
