News of Week.
That the age of miracles has not
passed is proved by the accident
which befell Leo C. Cooney on Fri
day the 13th -when he lost his bal
ance while working on the top of
his newly-constructed silo and fell
heart first from the inside striking
his head and shoulders on the con
crete below. A few broken ribs and
dislocated shoulder was all the doc
tor could find wrong, and unless
some internal injuries develop, Mr.
Cooney should be as well as usual
in a short time. To find a man

opportunity he now had to sleep aa
he wished, half an hour after a fall
of 32 feet, was indeed surprising to
Dr. Christopherson of Hermiston
and the neighbors who assisted in
getting Mr. Cooney out of the silo.
On Saturday Mr. Cooney was sit
ting up and on Monday he was at
the breakfast table. The scaffold
ing inside the silo broke his fall
and no doubt helped him that and
the fact that he is well padded with
surplus avoirdupois. Friends are
indeed glad to know that Mr. Coon
ey was not seriously injured.
Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Marlow of
Pendleton spent several days at the
Ransier home this week.
Mrs. Peter Farley and a group of
West-end ladies entertained at a
miscellaneous shower on Thursday
for Mrs. W. H. Mefford who recent
ly lost all her belongings in a Are.
The honor guest received many
lovely things, both useful and pret
ty. After the packages were open
ed a lovely luncheon was enjoyed.
Mr. and Mrs. Mefford and family
wish to extend their thanks to all
their friends for the many useful
and beautiful gifts given at the
shower, and at other times, also for
the many kind offers of help since
the fire. We are all prone to take
our friends as a matter of course
but at a time like this it is worth
much to have the hand of friend
ship extended and it brings a real
ization of the meaning of friends.
Sound business administration of
a school system was tvidenced re
cently by the school board when
the discussion was made to reduce
the high school teaching staff to
three teachers, thereby reducing an
nually a substantial sum of money
for the payment of the district's
debts and for the strengthening of
the grade system wherever it was
thought necessary. The more equit
able distribution of district funds
is obvious. This move has the en
thusiastic support of state superin
tendent C. A. Howard, and was
made possible by the resignation of
Judith Pierson, besides a registra
tion that made necessary the elim
ination of two two-hour period sub
jects. While this arrangement gives
an added load of teaching and re
sponsibility on the present high
school force, the arrangement of
courses is such that full offering is

Feed, housing and labor costs in dairy farming are
practically the same for all grades of cows. Therefore,
by standardizing on pure-breds producing up to Vz
times more milk than is given by the average cow, in
come is correspondingly increased with but little add
For example, compare the 3 gallons of milk per day
produced by the average cow with the 13'2 gallons
given by Idaho Piebc Priscilla, 3-ycar-old, pure bred
Holstein-Fresian owned by University of Idaho Col
lege of Agriculture. Recent tests credit Piebe with
3024 pounds of milk in 30 days, more than 100 pounds
(approximately 13'z gallons) per day.
Demonstrating the profit of pure bred stock to the
dairy farmer will be one of the feaures of the forth
coming 19th Annual Pacific International Livestock
Exposition, at Portland, Oregon, Oct. 26-Nov. 2. And
because we here at the First National Bank believe
dairymen can learn much of value in their farming
activities, we recommend attendance at this year's
