to Be Taken for Knocker.
Lexington, July 17. Editor Gaiette
Times: My attention having been called
to the fact that parta of my report on
the annual meeting of the Wheat Grow
er! association, published in your paper
of last week, might be misconstrued, and
considered a disparagement on the prin
ciples of the association, I wish to ex
plain more fully somt things which
might lead some who have not gone
deeply into ita principles to feel thst
I am knocking.
The loss at Condon I mentioned mere
ly as an item of the report, it never hav
ing occurred to me that others might
consider the loss due to lack of judg
ment on the part of the board instead
of an unforseen accident, until suggest
ed to me by Mr. C. A. Barnes, who, by
the way, is our very able and efficient
In regard to the item concerning Mr.
Nelson, he was chosen as Sales Manager
at, I believe, $15,000 per year.
As he did not appear to be the man
for the position, he was dismissed at
the expiration of six months. He is now
suing the association for six months sal
ary, having been paid for the time he
It would appear at present that the
management was merely mistaken in its
judgment of the man.
If the suit should be lost to Mr. Nel
son I should consider the management
to have been careless in the matter of
its contract with him. That point re
mains to be proven. As for knocking
the association, there is not a man in
Morrow county who believes in its prin
ciples and power for the good of the far
mers more than I, nor one who has
worked harder from the very beginning
to make this a success and I still think
that the association is the farmers sal
vation, under proper management and
my object in writing that article was
not to hinder organisation but to awak
en the farmers to the fact that they
have a big business ahead of them as a
whole and each individual must work
for his own Interests and ultimately for
the interest of all.
If the association should fail, which
I sincerely hope it will not, it will not
be the fault of the association but the
fault of the farmers themselves, many
of whom are doing as they have always
been accustomed to doing, sitting disin
terestedly back and. allowing any one,
who will, take up their business and run
it for them.
To prove that I will state that In Mor
row county for the year ending June
1st. 1922, there were 174 signed con
.tracts and only 93 votes cast In the
The association is a decided success
in California, the ralsia growers having
the greatest success as they are under
better management. If it will help them
why not us?
But unless every farmer gets in and
pushes, his association will come tumb
ling about his ears and conditions will
be worse, if possible, than before.
Farmers come to lifel Attend to the
business of your association as well as
your farm, demand your rights, ade-
quate representation and all that goes
with it, and In that way keep out of th
clutches of the speculators, bankers, and
loan sharks who have been your undoing
in the past.
Organiiel Push and pull all together,
for this way lies your salvation.

Here was young Jim Jones just went
into his back garden to see how his
grape vines wero coming along, and ev-
ery one of them was dead not a leaf in
sight. He was sure he had doped the
whole thing out so he would have a
wonderful grape juice crop this year.
He got the finest vines, planted them
with the greatest care, and then gave
them a dose of manure he was sure
would make them come up great. In the
winter months he dug around them, and
gave them more manure to keep them
going through the cold spell. "Burned
up," remarked old Jake when he saw
them. "Ain't nothln' bettor'n manure,
but too much kills. Plants are like hu

Prosecute Persons
Who Deface Road Signs
Persons who deface road, trail and
other signs posted by the Umatilla Na
tional Forest service for the convenience
of campers, tourists and other forest
users, as well as forest officers, are to be
prosecuted, according to anouncement
made by J. C. Kuhns, supervisor.
Mr. Kuhns announced that Ellis Mc
Coy, J, B. McCoy, John Schmidt and
Cleve McNeal, all of Stanfield, and W.
G. Miller and C. E. Lawrence of Pendle
ton, have been reported to him as hav
ing defaced signs. Action is to be taken
at once.
In giving the names, Mr. Kuhns said:
"It is felt that if people are so keenly
interested in having their names posted
for the benefit of the public that listing
them In the newspapers as violators of
a federal regulation would serve their
purpose equally as well as placing their
names on forest service signboards.
"Despite the fact that signs are a
public benefit a large number have been
defaced or destroyed thoughtlessly or
maliciously by travelers. Forest officers
are empowered to arrest without war
rant anyone committing any form of
trespass, including mutilation of signs.
The mutliation and destruction of forest
service signs cannot be considered as
unintentional and such cases of prop
erty trespass come under the head of
criminal trespass.
"The practice of writing names, ad
dresses, dates and in other ways defac
ing the signs has become so universal
that specific action is necessary. All
forest officers are being instructed to
report esses of mutilation of signs and
to arrest the offenders. As the practice
of defacing signs by writing upon them
is, no doubt, due largely to carelessness
or thoughtlessness forest officers are re
luctant to take drastic action and are
n the majority of cases merely requir-
ing that names be erased from the signs
or that new signs be furnished. It is
apparent, however, that offenders must
be treated with severity in future.
"Registration books and blanks are
placed at points throughout the forest
so that visitors can record names and
addresses and there is no excuse for de
facing property to leave a record of a
visit inside the national forest." East

Break Grounds For
New Church Building
An impressive little service was held
on Monday evening at 7:30 by the mem
bers of the Christian church and
friends, at the site of the old church
building, corner Gale and Center streets,
and ground for the new church building
was broke, workmen starting in on
Tuesday morning with the excavating
for the basement. This will be pushed
just as rapidly as possible, when it is
contemplated that the work of construc
tion on the superstructure will go for
ward. At the services Monday, evening there
was singing of hymns, a solo by Mrs.
Frank Turner, reading of a poem by
Mrs. Livingstone and short addresses by
S. E. Notson and W. O. Livingstone. Fol
lowing this the ground was broke, and
several members of the church and a
number of the Boy Scouts took a hand
in turning the first dirt in the work of
excavation and the building of the new
church was started on its way.

It still is a noticeable fact that a
large percentage of the fields would lack
much of passing the certification test
Over half of the fields inspected for cer
tification were rejected. No doubt there
are many other fields which might have
passed had they been reported in. How
ever, the fact that only the class A
wheat was passed this year eliminated
a good many fields which otherwise
ted to pass the inspection having over
would have passed. No field was permit-
one half of one per cent mixture unless
a large percentage of the mixture hap
pened to be of the same color as the
wheat in question. Most of the fields
passing the test had less than a quarter
of per cent mixture and a few were
practically pure.
In addition to well prepared summer-
fallow and early seeding you need good
seed. The list below is published in or
der that you may know where certified
seed can be secured. These fields were

Travel on Highways in Oregon Heavy
Now and Great Need of Observance of
Road Laws and Caution on Part of
Drivers la Urged by State Official.
There is a great congestion of traffic
ever the highways of the state of Ore
gon during the months of July and Aug
ust This has been true in other years,
but it is doubly true this season, as
there is a continual stream of automo
biles coming and going. The need of
care in driving is therefore urgent that
accidents may be averted. Concerning
this question we desire to give the fol
lowing letter received this week from
the office of the Secretary of State:
Salem, July 13, 1922.
Mr. Vawter Crawford, Editor Gazette
Times. In view of the fact that during
the months of July and August travel
on the highways of Oregon is the heav
iest, and, as a consequence, liability of
accident from the operation of motor
vehicles is greatly increased, I deem
it an opportune time to direct attention
to this condition and earnestly urge
upon car drivers in your locality greater
care in the operation of their ears. Cau
tion on their part in this respect will
help in a large measure in making the
highways reasonably safe for travel, and
continued attention to a few simple
rules of the road will ultimately make
travel comparatively safe at all time of
the year.
There is no time in the year when
careful driving is not imperative. Dur
ing the summer months congestion of
traffic, which is greatly augmented by
thousands of tourist cars from other
states, necessitates closest attention to
the observance of road laws, while win
ter months demand, in addition, extreme
caution on the part of drivers on ac
count of slippery pavements, obscured
vision, etc. A little thought on the part
of operatora will minimize the danger
and reduce the number of accidents, of
which it is said the greater percentage
is due to carelessness.
To this end I am, therefore, taking
the liberty of asking you, through the
columns of your newspaper, to urge
upon your readers who are car opera
tors, the real need, especially during the
current summer months, of the exercise
of added caution and discretion, so that
avoidable accidents, with consequent in
juries and possible fatalities may be
I feel quite sure that cooperation be
tween the state press and the traffic di
vision of the state department will tend
to direct the attention of all drivers
to Vie necessity of, care on their part.
and impress npon them their direct li
ability and risk by failure to observe
certain rules of the roadway as well as
impose upon other vehicles unnecessary
dangers, tun cooperation will reduce
to a great extent our record of viola
tions in this state and prevent many
accidents which are avoidable.
Appreciating deeply your interest in
our efforts to make travel safe in Ore
gon, I am,
Yours very truly,
Secretary of State,
The public sale at the Hendrix ranch
on Rhea creek last Saturday was well
attended but no heavy prices were offer
ed for the most of the stuff put up,
Many of the horses were range animals,
young and unbroke and sold at prices
ranging from two dollars to twenty-five.
In years gone by, such animals would
have brought better prices for the horse
cannery at Linnton.

Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Wilt
As on expression of the high regard
felt for Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Wilt most of
the professional and business men of

ed last Monday evening at Dr. Walker's
pacious residence and lawn to bid them
farewell on the eve of their departure
for their new home at Grass Valley. The

tion of what was coming until they were
escorted from their home into the pres
ence of a half hundred of their friends

Walker made everyone feel at home,
Music and song interspersed with games
on the lawn and light refreshments
caused the fleeting hours to pass rapid

ure of the guests of honor, best wishes
were showered upon them with the hope
that the coming years would be as kind
to them as the past thirteen of their res
idence in lone. Both will be missed here,

Sale Manager, Caravaa Greatly En

Local dealers throughout th state are
awake to th great opportunity present
ed by the plan for a hug caravan of
automobiles, trucks, tractors and imple
ments which is being assembled in Port
land and will begin its itinerary of th
state near the southern lln in th near
future and work its way northward. Th
schedule of stops will be announced
soon which will include this locality.
A similar demonstration in western
Washington last year attracted fully
10,000 persons in some of th mor pop
ulous sections, and crowds of from 1000
to 5000 were common. Local business
men will cooperate with th exhibitor
and their representatives for th con
venience and comfort of th crowds
which will gather wherever a stop is
The tour will cover about three
months, using the highways exclusively.
Associated in the enterprises are th
Ford Motor company, featuring Ford
trucks and Fordson tractors, the Stand
ard Oil company, Oliver Chilled Plow
works and allied manufacturer of a
complete line of farm implements for
which the Oliver concern is th North
west distributor, th Ersted Machinery
Manufacturing company, showing th
Ersted hoist; Talbot 41 Casey, with the
trailmobiles and a number of tractor
specialties and attachments; Parsons
Gordon company, Northwest distribu
tors of the Lee Lin trailers, contractor
dump bodies and similar equipment; th
Francis Motor Car company with Hercu
les truck bodies for various commercial
and industrial purposes; Modern Appli
ances company, demonstrating th Delco
light and a number of electrical special
ties, including many for use in th mod
ern farm home; to which exhibit in
numerable features will be added to
meet lcoal demand for special demon
strations of a widely varied character.
In the neighborhood of 40 truck and
tractors will be required to handle th
entire apparatus. It is estimated that
approximately 4000 miles will have been
covered by the- date of th last demon
stration. Cooperating with th distri
butors will be their respective local
representatives in about 150 cities,
towns and villages in Oregon and a por
tion of Washington along the Columbia
river. More than 50 mechanics, drivers,
lecturers and technical experts will par
ticipate in- th various demonstrations.
Civic organizations throughout th
course of the tour will cooperate in ar
ranging special features. At Oakland
and in southern Oregon, there will be
a great barbecue to which the whole
countryside is being invited. A clam
bake will be a prominent event at Sea
side, and special programs are being ar
ranged at Lebanon, Grants Pass and
many other points throughout the en
tire state.
Daily radio concerts will be riven.
There will be motion pictures, illustra
ted lectures, various prixe contests, re
freshments on the grounds and innum
erable entertaining and educational fea
tures. The entire plan was originated by W.
H. Goodwin, Portland branch manager
of the Ford Motor company who staged ,
a similar project in western Washing
ton a year ago. That attraction proved
so highly interesting to farmers, con
tractors, engineers and business men
that requests for a similar tour cam
from hundreds of points throughout th
entire Northwest and it is in compli
ance with so widespread a desire that
the various manufacturers and distri
butors are putting on an entirely new
industrial and power fanning tour in
Oregon this year.
This year's show will differ greatly
from that staged a year ago by th same
exhibitors . Upon reaching a demonstra
tion point instead of setting up all
equipment and apparatus in a single
field, a distribution of the equipment
will be made in accordance with local
demand. Thus, if a farmer wishes a
demonstration of mowing or plowing it
will be conducted at a point convenient
to all who are interested in such dem
onstration. Should a contractor desire
first hand information concerning spe
cial body trailers, hoists, road building
machinery, etc., such demonstration will
be given at a spot apart from th agri
cultural show. A business man wishing
to be shown the advantages of deliver
ing merchandise may have the free use
of a vehicle specially equipped to meet
his requirements. A tabulation of oper
ation of truck, trailer, tractor and their
special equipment and upon conclusion
of the several demonstrations at each
point, there will be an entertainment
and educational program for the entire
crowd at the headquarters of each show.
The caravan will not confine itself to
the highways and main traveled roads,
but will go into the back country in or
der to give the more remote sections
every possible opportunity to witness
a demonstration.
The itinerary will be announced with
in a few days, but it has been definitely
determined that the caravan shall pro
ceed under its owu power southward tn
the California line, making brief stops
en route and witholding actual demon
strations until the caravan reaches its
extreme southern definition at such
points as Ashland, Mcdford and Grants
Pass, from which points a return will
be made for a huge show in the vicinity
of Portland before leaving for towns
and cities elsewhere in the state.
Watch for date of arrival of the car
avan in Heppner announcement of
which will be made later.
