North Morrow Fair Good
Despite Backward Spring
The editor of this paper, who was
an interested visitor on Saturday,
the last day of the North Morrow fair
at Boardman, failed to pass any com
ment on this enterprise in last issue,
because of lapse of memory on hip
part, and a rush of other matters.
We had missed the second annual
event, and this last exhibit of the
communities of Boardman and Irri
gon could only be compared with the
first effort of these people, and we
felt that it was quite a bit short of
the showing made in 1925. The prin
cipal reason for this, however, was
the severe frosts that killed off the
most of the fruit crop on the north
end projects this year, and there was,
as a consequence, no fruit exhibit.
These stood out large in the fairs of
'25 and '26 and added much to the
effectiveness of the display; frost
also got in its work -4his Beason on
much of the garden products and the
vegctablo section was somewhat short
of other years. These are conditions,
however, that the people on the nro-
jects are nt responsible for, and it

tney made the best of the situation.
and had a wonderful display in va
rious lines.
Both projects are comincr tn th
front along many lines of horticul
ture and agriculture, dairying and
bee culture and the fair temohasizes
in a large degree the progress being
maue. a very notable display was in
the domestic art department: this
was large and the work all of a high
order. We hope that the coming sea
son will be more productive along all
lines at Irrigon and Boardman, so
mat next fall's display at the com.
munity fair will be, if possible, better
than that of the fall of 1925. It is
really wonderful what can be pro-
uucea on tnese irrigated projects
and the people of these communities
are to be commended in their efforts
to make an interesting display of

School Enrollment
Grows Second Week
With considorably over three hun
dred pupils registered in the grades
of the Heppner public Bchools, and
with more than one hundred in hieh
school, attendance this year bids fair

Due to Labor day fallfng upon
icBitranon aay ana the necessarv
interruption caused by institute, the
scnools got a rather poor start and
many pupils delayed their reiristra-
tion until last Monday. At that time,
nuwever, a large number of both
new and old students anneared. ami
while several pupils are said to be
delaying their entrance until after
Rodeo, it is thought .that the larirer
number of those who intend to en
ter are already in school.
A word of caution is given bv
Superintendent Burgess against de-
aying school entrance until after Ro
deo. By. that time the work of the
schools will be so well under way
that those who stay out until that
time will be reriously handicapped m
getting a start. It has always been
a custom of the schools to dismiss
upon Friday in order to allow all
interested to attend the "biz show."

With over seventy pedagogues in
ttendance from all parts of the
county, the annual teachers' institute
of Morrow county opened for busi
ness at 9 o'clock lost Thursday mern
ing. It has been the custoh for some
time in Morrow, as well as ,in many
other eastern Oregon counties, to hold
teachers institute early in the year.
to avoid bad weather and poor roads.
The wisdom of this move was appar-
nt in this institute for good weather
prevailed during the entire session,
making iniform attendance possible.
A strong corps of instructors was
on hand from the various institutions
of higher education throughout the
tate. The University of Oregon was
represented by Prof. W. G. Beattie of
the extension division who delivered
a series of lectures to high school and
upper grade teachers. Professor
Beattie covered the social sciences,
history and civics, and for the most
part his discussion dealt with the best
methods of teaching these subjects.
Ut especial interest to lower grade
teachers was the work of Miss Emma
Henkle and Miss Katharine Arbuthnot
if the Oregon Normal school. Both
of these lad:es are authorities in their
respective fields, and Miss Henkle's
lectures on primary methods and Miss
Arbuthnot's discussions of grade
geography, reading, etc., were well
received. Chester L. Ward, an in
structor at Oregon Normal, also de
livtTLd several asvemhlv laptitroe aa
weir as group talks to tipper grade
teachers. Mr. Ward treated the at
tendance problem to a very searching
analysis, and in a later lecture dealt
at some length with the schools of
Great Britain and the United States.
He made some very interesting com
parisons between the two systems in
the course of his talk.
A verv unusual and ovtrmoW int,.
esting feature of the institute was
an exhibit of school art under the
(lirection of Miss Margaret McDevitt.
series of talks on grade art wat
also delivered by Miss McDevitt.
General assemblies during the en
tire session were presided over by
Supt. Burgess while Miss Vail, Mrs.
Rodgers, Mr. Tolles, and Miss Ging
rich presided over the grade, high
school and art sections respectively.
un ihursday evening the visiting
teachers, instructors and patrons of
he school were given a very pleasant
reception in the parish house by the
entertainment committee of the in
stitute. Teachers and instructors
alike forgot their dignity and frolick
ed like children until refreshments
were served.
A more than usually large percent
age of strange faces was noted at the
institute this year, and a few that
had been familiar tc Morrow county
people for some years were missing.
Both the instructors and the teach-
rs felt that the institute was htehly
successful from every angle. The at
tendance wr.s good and the response
to the lectures was very pleasing to
those delivering them.
Mrs. Helen M. Wa'ker, county su
perintendent, is to be congratulated
on her success in procuring such an
ble corps of instructors, and in ar
ranging such a successful institute.
he session closed Friday after adopt-
ng the following resolutions:
1. Be it resolved that we, the teach
ers of Morrow County in Institute
ssembled, do hereby express our
thanks to the citizens and the Board

specially express our thanks to our
County School Superintendent, Mrs.
Helen M. Walker, for arranging this
Institute and for her efforts in our
behalf: to the various sneakers and

the various committees and individ-
als who have aided in making this
Institute a success.
3. We especially wish to express
our appreciation of the splendid en-
tertnniment extended the teachers of
the Institute by the teachers of Hopp
4. Feeling that the concensus of
opinion among the teachers of Mor
row County is that the health work
in the public schools should be stress-
be it resolved that we express
urselves in favor of greater atten-

amatoiy work in the schools, it is
the opinion of the teachers here as-
cmbled that special stress be placed

the Oregon State Teachers' Associa
tion has done for the teachers of the
tate, be it also resolved that we go
on record as favoring a one hundred
per cent support of that organization
by the teachers of Morrow County;
nu inasmuch as athliation with some
professional organisation marks the
progressive teacher, bo it further re
solved that we announce ourselves in
favor of membership on the part of
II teachers in the National Educa-
ional Association.

At Rodeo, 23rd, 24th
One of the main features of the
Morrow County Wool and Grain show
to be held in connection with the
Rodeo will be the sack sewing contest
on Friday and Saturday. The contest
will be conducted the same as last
year with preliminaries Friday and
finals on Saturday. The contest will
be held on the platform at the Hepp
ner Farmers Elevator company tipper
Prizes of $30 first, $20 second and
$10 third will be offered. The same
point system as before will be em
ployed in scoring. With the basis
100, time will count 35, workmanship
35, weight of filled sack 20, cleanli
ness 10. A minimum of 11 stitches
must be taken for a sack to be count
ed. Men who contemplate entering this
contest are instructed by Chas. W.
Smith, county agent, in charge of the
how, to get in touch with Chas.
Swindig at the elevator.
The exhibits for the wool and grain
show, now coming in, indicate the
finest display of wheat in years, while
the wool to be shown is somewhat
poorer quality due to the clod spring
and consequent lack of grease. The
county agent asks that those having
wool or wheat to show not already
in, to bring same to his office before
Tuesday. The premium list will be
practically the same as last year. Geo.
Mitchell, grain expert from the Moro
experiment station, will judge the
wheat, and Edward Ludwig, of the
Pacific Wool Growers association, will
judge the wool.
Club Work Progress
Shown in County
While ever $25 in prizes was cap
tured by the youth of Heppner and
vicinity in the recent North Morrow
County fair held at Boardman, the
rhowing made by the clubs through
out the entire county was remark
able, and goes to show what Morrow
county children are capable of doing
wnen tney are given a chance and
really try.
In addition to cash prizes manv
ciuo woriters won free trips

ships to O. A. C.
Through the efforts of Helen M.
Walker, county school superintend
ent, and Chas. W. Smith, agricultur
al agent, a great deal of encourage
ment haB been given to club work
during last spring and summer.
Clubs were organized in nearly every
community in the county and every
possible encouragement was given the
workers. Nor does the work stop
here for the plans of those who are
behind the movement call for a still
greater amount of club activity. Ani
mal clubs are well as garden, and in
dustrial clubs are being organized
and next years fair should see a
still larger and better exhibit.
Mr. Calavan, the state director of
club work, acted as judge of the ex
hibits at the fair.
The bachelor sewing club of Pine
City captured nearly all the prizes
in that division, while the clubs at
Hardman carried home five prizes in
bachelor sewing, first year sewing and
Handwork. rrora a point of organiza
tion the Hardman clubs were proba
bly the best in the county, as they
completed their work in much better
shape than did those clubs working
in other parts of the county. The ad
vanced sewing club at Irrigen captur
ed all prizes in that division, while
the first prize in second year sewing
went to an Ior.e girl, Helen Smojse.
The first prize in home-making went
to a girl from Lexington, Doris Wil
cox. Doris does not belong to any
club but worked alone and entered
the fair as-an individual competitor.

Mistaken Farm Idea.
Shorter School Hours.
Cleanliness For Health.
Senator Walsh, of Massachusetts,
when Congess meets will introduce
a bill to provide "a West Point of the
air," a United States aviation acad
emy, to take equal rank with West
Point and Annapolis. An excellent
suggestion, and "equril rank" 1b none
too high, for in case of war the fliers
would have to protect the obsolete
warships and slow, crawling army.
West Point and Annapolis should
be changed to flying academies, and
the sooner the better.
A group of well-meaning, but not
too intelligent farmers inform the
Government that they don't .want any
more reclamation work done, no more
irrigation canals, no more land drain
ed or deserts irrigated until the price
cf farm products increases.
Those are the farmers that have
voted to keep out the first-class Euro
pean immigration that this country
needs, the immigration that would
provide mouths to eat all tho farm
ers can grow and more. They vote
to keep out customers for the farms.
and would vote to prevent develop
ment of the country. But they will
not prevent it.
No extensive development begun
now would have any effect or add one
acre to cultivatable land in less than
ten to fifteen years. By that time, in
the natural course of events, the pop
ulation of the country Will increase
oy twenty millions.
The farmers, more than any other
class, are interested in canal devel
opment, which would take, as Mr.
Hoover has shown, from six to twelve
cents a bushel from the freight charge
of export wheat, and increase the
price of American wheat by that
amount per buBhel.
Professor Hemps of Budapest is re
ported to have perfected a new cure
for hydrophobia, better than the Pas
teur antitoxin. In one year 3,063 per
sons bitten by mad cats and dogs
were all cured, and every one of them,
except four, within a few days. That's
good news, but it would be better to
wipe out hydrophobia as the British
have done. Every dog is kept in quar
antine for a necessary length of
time, and no hydrophobia case was
known in England until recently,,
when a flier brought a dog through
the air, escaped the quarantine and
started a small epidemic,
The secret of health is cleanliness,
inside and out. Clean lungs, clean
bood, clean thinking prolong life and
fight disease.
Leprosy, that killed thousands and
was looked upon as a necessary visi
tation from above, was another word
for filth.
In Africa a strange, destructive fe
ver swept acoss the great dark con
tinent. 60,000 were killed by it, quar
antine stations were established with
out success.
Soap, water and disinfectant would
have done the work. .Disease is car
ried by vermin. Before asking why
the natives do not free themselves
of the vermin, we must remember
that it isn't so long in this country
since people looked upon the absence
of vermin as a sign of ill health.
They thought the tidy children
abandoned, unhealthy children. They
also thought that the mosquito's bite, '
which actually put malaria in the
blood, was a good cure for malaria,
Mr. Will C. Wood, California's su
perintendent of Public Instruction,
says that school' hours should be
made longer, and recommends legis
lation to the effect. He is mistaken,
the hours should be made shorter if
there is to be any change.
Two hours a day, or three at the
most, a child properly taught could
learn all that its mind could absorb
in one day. No tiours of sunlight
should be spent indoors unnecessarily.
For centuries men quarreled about
the lfliture of the soul. WTas it com
posed of solid matter or was it pure
ly spiritual? Now science shows that
there is no such thing as solid mat
ter, every atom being only an aggre
gation of elecrtons and nuclei, tiny
positive and negative charges of elec
trictiy. And we don't know what
electricity IS.
Parchment manuscripts, written
with Latin characters in ncjent Ara
maic, spoken by Jews in the time of
Christ, found in Pompeii, have been
translated. They contain slighting
references to early Christians. It is
hard for prosperous Christians of
1927 to realize that ancient pros
perity looked upon early Christian!
as we look upon the Russian Bolshe.
We wish to thank all our friends
for the kindness and sympathy dur
ing the sickness and death of our
father, J. T. Hadley, also for the
beautiful flowers.
