everyone was well satisfied wjth
everything shown. The arain
exhibit were of a very high or
der and showed careful prepara
: tion on the part of the designer.
Anyone to look at this exhibit as
a whole would never 'think that
every thing came fromr-Morrow
County.. Many of the residents
who had lived here for years
were surprised . and - had to be
-doubly assured that everything
j was real. The Irrigon district
' had one of the best displays to
be seen in the whole pavilion.
Grapes were their feature crop,

- The children's exhibit's was in
charge of Mrs. C C. Patterson
who was assisted iy S. . Not
son and County Judge Patterson.
The children certainly did their
best for all of the exhibits were
excellent samples of what a child
can do when they are interested'.
The chief place of interest was
the exhibition shed and no could

. as it wss last year yet quite a
number of animals were there.
The dances at the pavillion was
fair and could have been better
if better music had been secured.
The erowd however was apparen

There is however a determined
stand on the part of the many
