Business Institute Monday
and Tuesday Arouses
Heppner and lone business men
to the number of about 50 gathered
at the banquet table at 6:30 on Mon
day evening to partake of the good
things prepared for them as a part
of the entertainment of the repre
sentatives of Oregon State college
and the Oregon Retail Merchants'
association. At this gathering the
college was represented by Messrs.
H. T. Vance, head of courses in
merchandising of Oregon State
College School of Commerce, and
E. E. Bosworth, head of courses in
Acounting and Auditing, and O. F.
Tate, secretary of the merchants'
association. These gentlemen ar
rived In Heppner on Monday for the
purpose of conducting a business
institute, one of a series of eighteen
being held over the state this sum
mer. After the splendid feed had
been disposed of, the assembly was
addressed in the Endeavor room of
the Christian church by the visitors,
the meeting lasting about an hour
and a half.
Previous to this gathering, con
ferences had been held during the
day, and all business men who could
attended. This was also the order
on Tuesday morning, and at noon
a luncheon was served in the dining
room of the church.
The business Institutes are a new
departure of the state college, this
being the second year, and have
been brought about through the co
operation l the state college and
the Oregon Retail Merchants' asso
ciation. The college has been,
through its school of commerce,
making surveys of business meth
ods and gathering in a lot of Infor
mation that has been put forth in
the shape of printed bulletins. In
recent years the annual meeting of
the Oregon Retail Merchants' asso
ciation has been held In Corvallis
and this organization came to real
ize that it would be a fine thing to
carry the educational features of
the work right to the merchants In
the various communities over the
state, hence the business Institutes.
It was a little unfortunate that
the lnstitue came o Heppner just
at this,' our busiest season, other
wise the attendance would no doubt
have been much larger and the
merchants could have been In bet
ter position to receive the splendid
Instruction offered. Another year
an effort will be made to have the
dates placed earlier in the season.
However, the subjects discussed at
this Institute by the able speakers
and instructors, reached a sufficient
number of our business people, and
the representation of the various
lines of merchandising was suffi
cient that much good will no doubt
In consultation with some busi
ness men since, we are led to make
the statement that one result will be
the organization of a local mer
chants' association for the purpose
of protecting credits. Prof. Bos
worth just drove this home In his
splendid talk on "Credits and Col
lections" Monday evening, and
when the merchants had listened
further to Mr. Tate on "Business
Barnacles" Tuesday noon, there
could be little doubt left that our
busnless men would take this step.
Mr. Tate will return to Heppner a
little later, and then the steps neces
sary to organize the local associa
tion will be taken.
Not all the good work resulted
from the public meetings, as the
visitors were kept busy In various
conferences and many phases of lo
cal merchandising were discussed.
We are glad this conference came
to Heppner and feel that It has done
much good. Those of our merchants
who failed to attend any of the ses
sions missed a lot of good Informa
tion and this Is their loss. We hope
the conference well be held again
the coming year, and that at a time
when there can be a better attend
ance, and every retail merchant will

U. S. LAMB CROP
REPORT FOR JULY
From V. S. Department of Agriculture.
The United States lamb crop of
1929 was about 1 per cent smaller
than the crop of 1928, but over 7 per
cent larger than the 1927 crop, ac
cording to the lamb report Issued
by the Department of Agriculture.
The indicated lamb crops for the
three years are 25,976,000 in 1929,
26,225,000 in 1928, and 24,153,000 in
1927. The number of lambs saved
per hundred ewes one year old and
over January 1, was 83.1 in 1929,
89.2 in 1928, and 87.2 in 1927. This
decrease in the number of lambs
saved per 100 ewes more than off
set an increase of 6 per cent In the
estimated number of breeding ewes
on farms January 1 of this year.
The smaller lamb crop this year
was due to the decrease in the west
ern lamb states. The crop In the na
tive lamb states this year was about
four per cent or over 300,000 head
larger than that of 1928. This in
crease was due to the increase In
the number of breeding ewes since
there was little difference In the
number of lambs saved per hundred
ewes in the two years. The native
lamb crop was 8,331,000 In 1929, 8,
882,000 In 1928, and 8,875,000 In 1927.
The western lamb crop of 1929
was over three per cent or more
than 600,000 head smaller than that
of 1928. While the 'estimated num
ber of breeding ewes over one year
old January 1 was 1 per cent larger
in 1929 Uian in 1928, this was more
than offset by the decrease in the
number ,of lambs saved per hun
dred ewes from 83.8 In 1928 to 75.5
in 1929. The decrease in the west
ern region was due to decrease In
the late lamb crop, the number of
early lambs produced being as large
as in 1928. Texas was the only state
In this region where the number of
lambs saved per 100 ewes was larg
er in 1929 than in 1928 and the lamb
crop in Texas was over 8 per cent
larger than in 1928. The largest
decreases were in Wyoming, Utah,
Nevada and Oregon. The western
lamb crop was 16,645,000 in 1929,
17,233,000 in 1928, and 15,278,000 in
In the native sheep states the in
formation as to lamb crop was ob
tained from reports secured by ru
ral mail carriers about June 1. The
lamb crops for these states are
based upon the ratios of lambs sav
ed as shown by these reports. In
the western sheep states the lamb
crops are actual estimates of the
number of lambs docked based up
on reports from larre numbers of
range sheep owners in addition to
the rural carriers' Reports. Avail
able Information Indicates that lamb
losses after docking In some of the
western states were considerably
larger this year than last year and
that the decrease in lambs raised
will be more than the decrease In
the lamb crop as estimated.

Man Defeats Nature.
Chain Store Growth.
Up Goes Wheat.
A Bird Bootlegger.
Man consistently surpasses the
performances of nature.
Locomotives and automobiles out
run the deer. Airplanes already
outfly any bird, and will do better
when they stop imitating birds and
create an entirely new plane.
Bulls of Basham bellowed and
were heard afar. The microphone
talks around the world. Man's
latest defeat of nature is the crea
tion of an artificial ear "a thousand
times more sensitve than the hu
man ear, that picks up the faintest
danger signals coming through the
fog and tells the direction whence
Anything that men can imagine
they can do.
Forty-five chain store organisa
tions, in June, did $236,281,747 busi

Sears, Roebuck stands first with
June sales of $25,747,979; Wool
worth next $23,000,000; Montgom

farmrs by injuring the wheat crop
here and in the Canadian North
The price of wheat went up ev
erywhere, Chicago, Winnipeg, Lon
don, Buenos Aires, touching $1.36 a
bushel. The price was 96 cents a
few weeks ago.
It is not so pleasant for those
farmers whose wheat is "irrepar
ably ruined." . ..
W. T. Logan, Christian mission
ary returning to Buffalo, from the
headwaters of the Zambesi, tells of
a little bird that makes a hole in the
river bank clay, fills It with fruit
lets it ferment and develops alcohol.
At the proper time the bird re
turns to Its little clay vat takes a
drink and will fight anything.
What could our prohibition forces
do about that? Satan, of course,
educated that bird, far back in the
Garden of Eden, very likelv.
