Now Pick Your Winner In Each State
Here's a good game to play.
Just study the chart above. It
shows how the different states in
the union voted during the y-ivs
1888 and 1892.
Ten states show an unbroken
black line, indicating that since 1888
they have not once voted for any
other than the Democratic party.
These "states are Alabama, Arkan
sas, Florida. Georgia, Louisiana,
Mississippi, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. These
states have a total electoral vote in
1928 of 114.
Tennessee voted other than a
Democratic ticket only once, in 1920.
Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Michigan,
Minnesota, Oregon, Pennsylvania
and Rhode Island among other
states have been mostly Republican,
whlie Vermont has been solidly Re
publican since 1888.
Now mark in the spaces headed
"Your Estimate 1928" how you
think each state will go in 1928.
Then after the election compare the
actual results with your prophecies
and find out what sort of a political
prophet you are!
Fascinating game, isn't it?

The North Morrow County fair
was the leading event of the week
and Irrigon the Mecca for many
Boardman folks. Boardman and
Irrigon have held this fair jointly
ever since its inception and plans
were to have the two towns alter
nate each year but heretofore Irri
gon has not had a suitable place to
hold it until this year when the new
gymnasium was completed. The ex
hibits were shown in the basement
of the gym and although Boardman
did not "come up to scratch" this
year as was expected the Irrigonites
showed more than before so the
quantity on display was practically
the same. The matter of getting
the material to Irrigon seemed to
be the chief difficulty here and as
fair funds can be used only for pre
miums there was no money to pay
for hauling the displays up there,
hence many had no way of entering
their exhibits. Also a number were
haying or doing other work that
could not be deferred. The veget
able display was much smaller than
usual since Boardman raises more
vegetables than Irrigon.
There were three excellent gen
eral farm exhibits, all from Irrigon.
These were judged according to va
rieties, maturity and artistic ar
rangement with prizes of $6, $4 and
$3. They were well arranged and
showed productivity of the sandy
sou with water available. F. H.
Rieks won 1st prize and Mr. Light
2nd on these. Last year there were
no fruits shown, but Nature was
more kindly this year and melons
and fruits were present in abund
ance and lucious pears and peaches,
rosy apples, delectable strawberries
tempted both the eye and the palate.
Frank Frederickson was in charge
of this section. Adolf Skobo, who
won many prizes this year, was
awarded first on the best three wa
termelons. That Boardman receiv
ed the award rather than Irrigon
is explained by the fact that the
Irrigon section is from two to three
weeks earlier than Boardman and
the prime melons were gone. The
farm crops exhibit was not so large
as usual, only three or four entries
of corn being shown, and only two
sheafs of alfalfa. C. C. Gignoux
judged the farm crops (in charge of
Chas. Saling), the fruits, melons
and vegetables. C. H. Dillabough
was appointed superintendent of
the vegetables but was unable to
attend so Jess Badger acted as su
perintendent The usual gorgeous array of flow
ers was displayed, giant zinnias,
huge dahlias of various shades,
potted plants, asters, especially no
ticeable were some of the velvety,
odd shaped coxcombs, and some

oddity, the latter entered by Mrs.
B. B. Lewis of Boardman. Mrs.
Smith of Irrigon had charge of this
department and Mrs. Wooster of

had charge of the Domestic Science
section and the many entries made

art with the modern housewife was
again demonstrated even more this
year than last Only one cake was
entered and one loaf of bread, a few
cookies, doughnuts and pies. All
that were entered looked "good
enough to eat"
The bees and honey exhibit was
almost negligible which seems
strange in a section that produces
honey by the ton but it was always
difficult to create interest in that
division. Mr. Rodda of Hermiston
judged this and Hugh Grim was
F. Markham took the place of
Vaj-non Jones as poultry superin

hunting. Mr. Allen and Mr. Holt

Bannister of Heppner judged the

The live stock department had a
greater number of entries this year
than probably ever before. O.
Coryell was superintendent and Mr.
Geo. Jenkins, assistant county
agent, judged the garden club work
and L. J. Allen judged the sheep.
Miss Grieve of Irrigon and Miss
Spike of Boardman very graciously
gave of their time and judged the
Domestic Science and Domestic Art
division, a stupendous task because
of the many classes and entries.
Mrs. Bert Knight was superinten

Now that the fair is over, the
question arises, shall we continue
to have it or shall we abandon it?
This money is appropriated for fair
purposes and can be used only for
such. If any is left over it is re
turned to Heppner and goes into
the general fund. Will the interest
be any keener another year or will
it be the same faithful few who
bend their every effort to make it
a success, the same faithful few
who exhibit every year. It is a lot
of work to get an exhibit ready and
it means taking a lot of time, but it
is only once a year. Shall we do it
again or not? Let us hear from you.
Keep the date, Tuesday, Sept. 25
in mind. It is the night of the so
cial get-together meeting of the P.
T. A. and everyone is invited.
