MR. MARIS VISITS
He is Enthusiastic Over Back
to Farm Movement
N. C. Maris has been iu Henpner
several days tin's v,eek and met with
the Booster Clnb on Monday and Tues
day evenings to discuss the "back to
the toil" movement. Ha is repre
senting the O A. C. Extension De
partment, enl on Tuesday evening
gave a god talk before the Club iu
which ha outlined the work that is
being undertaken, and explained fully
the plan for the contests to be entered
into by the school children of this
county. Mr. Mans is fully alive to
the importance of the work just be
ginning and brought to the attention
of onr people here the great benefits
that will result from the inauguration
of this movement to interest the chil
dren in learning those things in life
that will be of erent assistance to
them in fiehting the battles they will
sooa be entering upon. He also show
ed in a e'ear and conciss way that the
idea of leaving tha farm and going
to the city was loosing ground; the
profesisons are full to running over
already and onlv those who can take
a place at the top can exocet to suc
ceed against the odds of competition
and oversupoly. So the logical thing
is to get back to the farm an teach
tha children to produce from the soil
tha wealth that lies there. The plan
is certainly a great one, and another
year or so will show the wisdom of it.
A committee was appointed to confer
with Mr. Maris and select a list of
products that prizes will he offered
for, this committee to act in conjunc
tion with a like committee appointed
by the Farmers' Union, and a full
report of their action will appear next
week. From the interest manifested
so far it is evident that the movement
will prove a success in this county.

He is a bright young attorney with
five years practice to his credit, and
during this psriod he has had sime
very excellent training in the office
to which he aspires, as he was deputy
district attarney for two years under
Judge Phelns v. hen he was filling
that office and also served for four
nianths nndor S. E. Van Vactor, the
present incumbent. During this period
Mr. Steiwer had charge of and assisted
in prosecuting a number of the most
important criminal cases of recent

Mr. Stiewer has no extended plat
form to put before the people Just at
this time but pledges simply a strict
and impartial enforcement of the
laws of Oregon.

ceeded to organize The Morrow
County Poultry Association, on Tues
day evening. The temporarv organiza
tion was completed by the election of
Frank Gilliam, chairman and L. W.
The following permanent officers
were then elected to serve for the
ensuing year: President, E. G.

Instructive and encoursginz ad
dresses were made by D. C. Gurdane,
who outlined thu experiences and
progress of the Umatilla-Morrow
County Poultry Association by; N. C.

ing data regarding the poultry and

of the state, followed by Mr. Marls
on the same line. Enccurnffinir re-

It is the purpose of the Association

Arrangements will at onoe be made
t bold a poultry fair at Henpner this
coming winter and with the assistance
that will undoubtedly be given by tha
business men and poultry raisers of
tho town and county this fair will
certainly prove a great success, and
be of untold advantage to the county.
In addition to the regular premium
and prizes it is the intention of the
Association to offei special prizes te
children as an inducement to engage
in this profitable and fascinating in

Morrow has more poultry fanciers
and etxensiva poultry reisers than
any other county in Eastern Oiegon
and there is no reason why this show
should not be ona of the largest and
most successful in the Pacific North
Before the advent of poultry assoc
iations the 200 egg hen was not heard
of and the farmers' yards were filled
with a heterogenous mixture of mon
grels. Now, with the educational
influences of these associations, iu
traveling over tne country, we find
many flocks of beautiful thorough
breds, of manv variety, and the 2C0
egg hen is no longer a rariety. Many
new breeds are constantly being evol
ved in the efforts to create more pro
fitable strains and wonderful things
are being accomplished in that line.
Oregon imported, during 1911, over
400 car loads of eggs from other states:
our total importations of eggs and
dressed poultry amounting to over
two and one half million dollars.
Here is food for thought and one thing
we should set our thinking machines
to work on.
