GILLIAM COUNTY'S LEADING HOME PAPER
CONDON, OREGON. FRIDAY. MARCII 2, 1917
WASHBURN OF MILTON
SAYS HE WON FAIRLY
Milton, Or f iron.
February 13, 1317.
E litor Condon Globe,
A copy of your iitue of Feb
ruary lC'.h. containing an article
eigned by I) VV. Hammock hax
come into my bands. Will you
do nie tho courtesy of allowing
metogive tb facta regarding
the selection of judges for the
Condon-Milton debate of Feb
Mr. Hammack says:"Tbe Con
don principal sent in his list of
judges about the first of Feb
ruary." His letter reached me
if I remember correctly on the
2tid. of February or eight days
before the debate. He proposed
three men from Walla Wall as
I had told him earlier' that
we should like to get men from
Wulla Walla in order to kerp
down exponses. I rung these
men up at once. Two of them
thought they could come but
could not tell for certain so far
ahead. They said they would let
me know by the middle of the
week. I could not get the third
man on the 'phone until several
days later but on Tuesday even
ing, February 6th, I did ge't him
and found that he could not come.
Wednesday evening one of the
two men I had got first rang up
and said that he could not come.
On Thursday morning, Februnry
8th, at 8.10 a m. I telegraphed
Mr. Hammack: "Can get Mill,
Davis and Millspaugh or Simpson
of Whitman. Turk will 0. K
Wiie if you disapprove." Mr.
Hammack did not wire any dis
approval nor did he express
while here the slightest dis
satisfaction with the way the
judges hud been chosen. The two
whom he proposed and I failed
to get were Prof. W. D. Lyman
of Whitman College and Marvin
Evans, vice president of the
Whitman College alumni associa
tion. It would seem that Mr.
Hammack decided that Whitman
men were unsuitable judges after
he had lost the debate but not
Mr. Hammack continues: "The
Milton principal let the matter
rest until the evening of Febru
ary 8th, one day before the de
bate, making it imposs;ble to re
ject his and select others before
.the time set for the debate." I
telegraphed Mr. Hammack CO
hours before the debate and fail
to see why he could not reject
the names I proposed and offer
Mr. Hammack continues: "In
this way he was able to select
two of the judges himself and
he selected them from the school

The methods of handling sheep
and wool to get the best result
as demonstrated in the wool car
which was in Condon Monday
was very interesting to the sheep
men who were able to be present
and will be of much value to them.
A large number of local people
visited the car also and were"
surprised at the manner in which
the Department of Agriculture
and the Agriculture College have
worked out these demonstrations
for the benefit of the woolgrew
er. The methods shows were
obtained from practical teste anl
this information ie appreciated

was in no way responsible for the
pupils of the High ScEbol being

evening before that be thought
it well to ask pupils who had
possibly been exposed to remain
out of school for a time.
Mr. Sturgill knew nothing of
this ruling until the next mora
ing when he came to teach the
classes of Mrs. Kenyon who was
