The hen roosts have been duly raided

will in fact constitute a banquet, and
all for the price of fifty cents.
This is strictly a community affair
sponsored by the Patron-Tteacher as

Registered Dairy Cows
Brought to County
That their present herds may be
improved and built up to a higher
standard of production, J. 1. Hanna of
Hinton creek and Jay Hiatt of Rtiea
creek have recently shipped from tne
Willamette valley 36 head o' high
grade Jersey cows, 2 registered bulls
and 4 registered cows, which they
will add to their holdings. The stock
was purchased around McMinnville
and comes from some of the very best
herds in that vicinity.
We understand that these gentle
men will retain the most of this
. stock for themselves, though Mr. Han
na has disposed of a few cows to
other praties who offered him prices
that were too attractive to be turneJ
Both Mr. Hanna and Mr. Hiatt are
situated to take care of dairy cows
and they are to be commended for
bringing in stock of such high qual
ity. We understand that Guy Boyer
and Jas, Morgan, two other Hinton
creek residents, are adding some new
blood to their herds. They recently
bought a registered bull from Mr.
Dyer, of Hermiston, who 1b said to
possess one of the best herds of Jer
sey cattle in the Eastern Oregon ooun
try. Others will fall in line, as the
interest grows in dairy cattle for the
creek ranches of Morrow county, and
we can look froward to much im
provement in the stock. Mr. Moehler,
who recently purchased the Eph Es
kelson place, will engnge quite exten
sively in dairying. While he now has

Election of Former Head of Idaho
Body Unanimous on Part
(Monday's East Oregonian.)
Hugh Sproat of Boise, Idaho, for
several years president of the Idaho
Woo Growers' association, was elec
ted secretary of the Oregon Wool
Growers' association, at a meeting of
the executive committee which was
held here Saturday. The action of
the board was unanimous.
"The board considered that the as
sociation is extremely fortunate in
being able to secure the services' of
a man of such high type as Mr.
Sproat," Mac Hoke, former secretary,
stated today. "Mr. Sproat has been
in the sheep business and knows the
problems that sheep men have to face
from actual experience. He Is also
in close touch with the national body,
due to the fact that for the past year
he has been engaged in work for that
association in investigating the cau
ses of slumps in lamb prices in the
Mr. Sproat will assume his duties
about March 1. Offices will be main
tained in Pendleton. For the present
Mr. Sproat will not move to Pendle
ton, due to the fact that his children
are in school in Boise.
A series of 20 meetings will be held
throughout the state during March
to take up some legal problems and
other matters that have been engag-
ng the Interest of the Oregon asso
ciation. The first of these meetings
will be held in Pendleton, Monday,
All of the members of the executive
committee of the state association
were either present or represented by
proxy in Saturday's session. Those
present included K. G. Warner, pres-
dent of the association, Pilot Rock;
Ernest Johnson, Wallowa; Charles
Burgess, Fossil; James Murtha, Con
don; and William Mahoney, Heppner,
as proxy for Robert Thompson, Hepp
ner. The decision to employ an execu
tive secretary to -devote his entire
time to the affairs of the association
was made at the annual convention
held in Pendleton in January. Since
that time the executive committee has
been receiving applications from can
didates for the office. In the past the
post of secretary was filled by Mac
Hoke of Pendleton, who devoted only
a slight part of his time to the work.

Combined Harvester from the Peo
ples Hardware Company and cut about
805 acres of grain. The machine was
highly satisfactory and I do not re
gret purchasing the Case.
I was well pleased with the service
as every few days a Case mechanic
inspected this machine.
I can recommend this harvester to
any grain grower.
Very truly yours,
