residents are doing, I am sending
you a few items from Hood River.

where they visited for a few days and
then- proceeded on to McMinnville

Linnfield college. McMinnville is the
birthplace of Mrs. Howard, who with
her parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. An
drews, moved to Morrow county when

ited with Mr. and Mrs. Alex Lindsay.

a part of the Elijah Bristow donation
land claim, known as Pleasant Hill.
Alex owns the townsite comprising
a store building, blacksmith shop and
several vacant lots. He is milking
cows and raising white leghorns, and
is also very much elated over the
prospects for oil on his place, having
leased it to the company who are at
present drilling near Eugene. At Cot
tage Grove the Howards and Hors
mans visited with the Craigs, former

SWEET SPUDS GOOD CROP.
Sweet potatoes in the Irrigon and
Boardman communities . have been
tried out by about thirty farmers
with very good results this year. To
get first hand information on growing
methods, two tours were held in these
communities September 5 and 6. The
crop shows much promise and it is
nearly always a. good price with a
In 1924 192 cars of sweet potatoes
were inspected in Portland. One of
the problems to be worked out as this
crop increases in acreage is a system
of storage so that the potatoes can
be properly cured and put on the
market during the winter and not
dumped at digging time.
Hairy Vetch Seed Available.
About two thousand pounds of
hairy vetch seed have been threshed
by Adolf Skoubo, of Boardman, and
this seed is available to anyone wish
ing to try this crop in Morrow coun
ty. If vetch is planted with a good
stiff strawed barley or wheat it will
make an excellent hay crop. Mr. Skou
bo is holding the seed at ten cents
per pound, f. o. b. Boardman.
