(ConHnqrd from Will P
he did not consider himselw a pion
eer of this particular part of the
state, he had lived In Oregon when
a much younger man than he is
now, and got part of his education
and preparation for teaching in the
Oregon schools. He could tell of
conditions, however, that bordered
on those of the pioneer, as his work
as former superintendent of schools
of this county was done under cir
cumstances more of a pioneer na
ture than exist at the present time.
A special program of music, reci
tations, pantomime, etc., had been
prepared under the direction of
Mrs Karl Miller, and special worn
had been done in preparing a min
strel stunt that was delivered in
good shape for the evening's enter
tainment The auditorium of the
high school building was filled to
overflowing for the two hours of
splendid entertainment, and then
following this was the old-time
dance at Leach hall, participated in
by all that felt the urge to trip the
light fantastic toe. It is remarked
that some of the old timers showed
that they had not forgotten what
they had learned In younger days,
and were able to perform the qua
drilles and other dances of the early
days In a manner quite satisfactory
to themselves. Much fun was creat
ed at this old-time party and all
thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
We are sure that no one fortun
ate enough to be present at Lexing
ton Friday regretted the time spent
Everyone expressed keen apprecia
tion of their splendid entertainment
and it was a day always to be re
membered. We give herewith the

Among the offices to be filled at
the coming election on November
6 is that of joint representative in
the Oregon legislature for Umatilla
and Morrow counties.
Joseph N. Scott of Pendleton, who
was elected to this position two
years ago, is a candidate for reelec
tion. Joe Scott is well known in
the district as a native of Umatilla
county, an extensive farmer and
heavy taxpayer on wheat lands lo
cated !n both Umatilla and Morrow
counties, also owning residence
property in Pendleton. During the
1927 session Mr. Scott introduced
but two bills, both by request One
of these passed both houses unan
lmously and was signed by the gov
ernor. This law provides that in
counties where there are no local
road districts, signatures to peti
tions and remonstrances for road
improvements shall be restricted to
freeholders residing in the local
road districts as they last existed
Mr. Scott says: "There were over
one thousand separate bills and res
olutions Introduced and disposed of
In the 1927 session of the Oregon
legislature, the record of which fills
several good-sized books and is a
matter of public record. A com
plete and detailed review of the
same is Impossible in the limits of
a newspaper article. I will say in
a. general way that I took my office
seriously and devoted the time dur
ing the forty-seven days of the ses
sion to hard and serious study of
the mass of legislation offe.-ed and
especially the matters referred to
the committees of which I was a
member. I was a member of four
committees as follows: Agriculture,
Assessment and Taxation, Health
and Public Morals, and Mining.
"I worked among my fellow mem
bers with the best of feeling prevail
ing at all times nad was treated by
both the speaker of the house and
the governor with every courtesy
If the voters of Umatilla and
Morrow counties elect me as their
representative again I shall con
sider it a great honor and I will be
glad to serve the district to the best
of my ability and for the pay speci
fied by the constitution and limited
to $3.00 per day or not to exceed
$120 for any one session with mile
age in addition. I served for this
compensation in the 1927 session al
though the legislature appropriated
to its members $5 per day addition
al for the entire forty-seven days It
was in session. Four members did
not accept the extra amount"

Now is Time to Clean
Your Field of Gophers
In the furtherance of the county
agent's extension program In Mor
row county, Rooy Fugate, junior
biologist of the biological survey,
spent two days in the county in
company with Charles W. Smith,
demonstrating methods of poison
ing gophers. The months of Octo
ber and November are by far the
most favorable months for poison
ing pocket gophers as they are lead
ing a solitary life at this time of
year and one bait placed in a run
way will usually be enough to do
the work, says Mr. Smith. Each
year in Morrow county the stand of
alfalfa in many of the fields is cut
down by gophers, a large amount of
time is lost in stopping up the holes
along the irrigation ditches in the
spring, and a large amount of the
limited supply of water available is
The poisoning of gophers is a
very simple matter and takes only
a short time to cover several acres
of ground. The most effective me
thod is to dust strychnine sulphate
which can be secured at the county
agent's office without cost, on some
cubes of freshly cut carrots and
place in the run way. The run way
is found with a probe and the bait
dropped in, the hole is then cover
ed with a clod or grass and enough
dirt placed on the top to shut out
light If this was not done the
gopher will plug the hole and the
bait will not be found.
If you have gophers and never
had a demonstration on your farm,
you may get one at any time after
November 15 by making inquiry to
Gophers can be poisoned In the
spring but at that time there are
usually two or more gophers oc
cupying one run way and one may
eat all the bait as it acts very slow
ly, and at that time also, one will
have to kill the Increase. Then, too,
the gophers will destroy many al
falfa plants during the winter by
cutting them off a few inches be
low the ground.

A GREAT TRIBUTE.
If you are ever so fortunate as to
visit out National Capitol at Wash
ington, you will find many things
there to thrill you.
But none, perhaps, as stirring as
one picture that hangs as a per
manent gift to the American people
and a fitting tribute to one of the
most glorious deeds in all our na
tion's proud history.
This wonderful picture bears the
simple title "WE," and as its name
suggests, depicts the gallant flight
of Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh
from New York to Paris the flight
that thrilled the world, and gave it
probably its most loved hero of all
And the' best part of all this is,
you can have a handsome copy of
"WE," printed in twelve colors and
measuring eighteen by twenty-four
inches, to hang in your own home.
You cannot buy the picture at any
price. It may be had only through
The Youth's Companion as its free
gift to you with a year's subscrip
tion to the magazine.
In its new form as a monthly mag
azine, The Companion itself has
more to offer than ever before a
full book-length novel complete in
each issue; serials and short stor
