True Test Indicated
Duvall Place Says
D. E. Stephens
8-MILE PLOT IS NEXT
Picnic Scheduled With Meeting
Lawrence Redding Farm;
Dinner at Grove.
D. E. Stephens, superintendent of
the Moro Experiment station, said
yesterday that the grain nursery on
the Harry Duvall place north of
Lexington is one of the best in the
state. Mr. Stephens in company with I
Roger Morse, county agent, made an
examination of the nursery yester-j
day afternoon and explained the re
sults indicated to a group of farmers.
A large number of different va
rieties and selections of wheat, bar
ley and oats are planted in these
nurseries in order to check the dif
ferent points of value of each, ex
plained Mr. Stephens. The seed is
planted in short rows with three-row
plots of each kind of seed, repeated
at intervals over the nursery. Thus
a comparison of heighth of growth,
strength of straw, foliage, head qual
ity, maturity and other qualities of
the different varieties and selections
can easily be made. By repeating
each variety and selction at intervals
over the nursery, a check is made on
he trueness of results indicated in
a single section by giving an indi
cation of the evenness of. quality of
soil in any one section. When the
grains ripen the middle row of ech
selection wit be harvested and check
ed for yield and quality of "kernel.
A true test is indicated at this
nursery, said Mr. Stephens, and it
holds valuable information.
Among the grains at the nursery on
which most stress is laid are several
selections of smut-resistant wheats.
The Moro Experiment station has
been working for several years to
produce a good yielding, early ma
turing, smut-resistant wheat that can
be grown profitably on the lighter
soils. To this end wheat varieties
have been crossed and selections of
the resulting hybrids made and In
creased which now give prorr. se of
fulfilling the requirements of the
wheat sought. Some of these selec
tions look good in the Duvall nursery,
and after a check has been made on
the yield, they may be given out to a
few farmers to try, Mr. Stephens
said. Then if they prove satipfac
tory they will be rclcised by the
station to grow on a commercial ba
sis. This is the procedure always
followed by the station before rec
ommending and releasing a new va
riety of wheat.
An interesting wheat pointed out
at the Duvall nursery was a smut re
sistant club wheat. Club wheats are
all very susceptible to smut, stated
the station superintendent, and it
was thought for a long time that it
would be impossible to ever get a
smut-resistant type of this variety.
However, after a long period of ex
perimentation, one has been produced
that gives promise of being valuable.
This wheat looks good in nearly
every aspect at the nursery, and will
probably be given out for farmer
trial in a short time.
As soon as harvest of the nursery
Is completed and checks finished, the
results will be published for the
benefit of those interested. Many
farmers are interested to learn the
progress being made with the smut
resistant wheats, especially.
On Sunday, June 27, a meeting
will be held at the Eight Mile nur
sery on the Lawrence Redding farm.

Big Demand Shown
For Feeder Lambs
Union Stock Yards, Chicago, June
16.--Fat lamb prices met the first re
verses of the season in a 25 to 60c
break at Chicago market this week.
Early Idaho lambs topped at $18.95
to city butchers, others to packers
$18.80 and $18.90, against a high
point of $19.20 on the Monday trade.
This break was expected as lambs
are just starting to come in volume
from native and range states, said
Tommy Lynch, well known sheep
salesman at Chicago. "The next three
vceks will probably see further de-
lines. Prices are three dollars above
last year and allowing for eradual
osses, we expect to see fat lambs
from Idaho, Montana. Oreeon and
Washington realize 16 to 18c this
year, fairly moderate runs will hold
the June-July market strong while
feeder demand from corn belt finish-
rs should support the Fall market."
Mr. Lynch stated that corn belt
feeders can get good corn around 55
to 60c now and there is a big per
cent of last year's crop still available
n Illinois and Iowa. "Feeding pigs
re sky-high and scarce. The feed-
ng margin on cattle is down to zero.
Lambs and sheep offer the best prof-

Men Last Night.
MORE MONEY POSTED
Prizes to be Increased to Draw More
Outside Talent; Better Show
The ball was started rolling last
evening for a bigger and better Rodeo
al Heppner on September 23-4-5, at a
meeting of the Rodeo committee with
Heppner business men at the council
chambers. New plans were discussed
and committees appointed to take
charge of the work.
The general committee, composed
of C. W. McNamer, Chas. Latourell,
V. Gentry and Jack French, was re
tained, with commendation for their
work in preceding years. It is the
policy of this committee to have
everyone at work, and to this end the
numerous committees appointed last
year were held over with a few ad
ditions. In discussing the program for this
yaer's show, it was decided that new
performers are needed to put zest
into the Rodeo. To this end it was
voted to increase the prize money
on the main events, W. P. Mahoney
being named chairman of a commit
tee to solicit Heppner business men
for a fund to augment the prize
purse. It is believed that if purses
are made attactive enough plenty
ci outside material will be after them.
No ban on participants is made this
year, and C. W. McNamer, chairman,
stated that the local boys will have
10 take their chance with the best
that come along. He believed this
action is necessary p keep the show
The list of events with the prize
money to be offered, is now being
made up and will be ready for dis
tribution in a short time.
Improvement of the Rodeo grounds
is already under way with the con
struction of the new grandstand, and
11 is planned to have some new barns
and other equipment by show time.
The track will also be put in better
condition and more stress will be
laid on the races than formerly. ' It
is thought the calf and steer roping
will be eliminated from the program.
The Rodeo committee and Heppner
tusiness men desire to make the Ro-
cieo as good a local show as possible,
at which Morrow county people may
receive a maximum of entertainment
and to this end they are exerting
every means at their disposal. They
bid everyone to keep the dates in
mind, and plan to come to Heppner
on September 23-4-5.
