; Rains have prevailed all over
Morrow county this week and much
of the wheat belt has been thor
oughly wet While In lone for a
short time on Monday, District At
torney Notson met many of the
farmers of that section, and the
general report on crops was very
encouraging. He learned that nu
merous farmers, who had expected
"to reseed, are now convinced that
it will not be necessary to do so, as
the grain is coming all right This,
of course, was regarding those who
had sown Federation in the fall, and
felt that the freezing winter weath
er had killed It off to such an ex
tent that reseeding would be re
quired. The abundant rains will
soften up the fields that have been
crusted, and the grain should -now
come along rapidly.
Frunk Baling was a visitor In the
city on Saturday from his Alpine
wheat ranch. Mr. Saling has been
a resident of Morrow county since
last September, having at that time
moved on to his farm at Alpine
known as the A. Andrews place, and
farmed for many years by his son-in-law,
Earl Simonton. He is well
pleased with the splendid prospect
for crops in his locality, and thinks
the north end of the county will
enjoy another crop equal to that of
last season. Mr. Saling comes from
Umatilla county, where they raise
abundant crops, and he was for a
little over twelve years county clerk
of his home county.

PRESENT LAW ENDORSED.
The Columbia Farmers' Union lo
cal of Wasco county has unanim
ously endorsed the present auto li
cense law. From Farmers Union
News, published at Independence,
we have the following:
'The present auto license law was
unanimously endorsed at a meeting
of the Columbia Farmers' Union
local at their hall on Wednesday,
February 1. This vote was taken
to determine the attitude of people"
towards the three dollar license
which will be voted on at the com
ing election. This action was taken
when it was pointed out that the
present license law is the state se
curity for millions of dollars worth
of road bonds.
'Although it was pointed out that
if the automobiles in Wasco county
were placed on the tax rolls they
would create enough revenue
to pay the county's share of the
state tax, it was unanimously
agreed that until some more feas
ible method of collecting the auto
license tax is brought about the
present law should be supported."
