''Can you beat It? Mrs. Glen
Hadley who has had pronounced
success with poultry gathered 210
eggs one day last week from 220
pullets, almost 100 per cent lay In
mid winter. They have excellent
facilities for poultry and give the
birds the best of csre and are well
repaid for their work.
Miss Mabel Miller of Seattle is a
guest at the D. F. Rausier home.
Boardman farmers shipped the
balance of their turkeys at the Jan
uary pool on Monday. The price
offered at this pool was much better
than the December price. That a
cooperative organization will not
succeed, at least in this project, was
shown by the results of the Turkey
Growers association, for in Decem
ber many of the growers shipped
their birds to Portland or elsewhere.
In fact so many of the Umatilla
project farmers did this that the
grading and packing crew at Her
miston was not kept busy. When a
farmer works for months raising
birds and a concern next door offers
him one cent premium, naturally
he's going to take it regardless of
contracts, even though conditions
may later react against him. Board
man had two bitter experiences in
cooperatives In the early days here
with a hay growers association and
with a cheese factory. The principle
is sound but somehow it doesn't
seem to work out satisfactorily.
When a farmers' organization gets
as large as the Turkey Growers as
sociation, the packers and specula
tors begin to worry and do their
utmost to kill it, for if a farmer
ever learned his power, just what
would happen to the middle men?
Farmers might well take a lesson
from the bricklayers union.
The P. T. A. sponsored a movie,
"The Head of the House," Friday
night Because of the cold weather
there was only a small attendance
and expenses were barely met
Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Fortler enter
tained another group of friends on
Wednesday evening at a 500 party.

lespie received high honors, and Mr.
and Mrs. L. E. Marschat received
consolation. Others present were
Messrs. and Mesdames Coats, Dilla
bough, Kennedy, Mead, Gillespie,

The upper wall of the Mefford
house will be removed and a one
story house made of it The house
was destroyed by "re last summer,
leaving only the concrete walls

Everyone is urged to attend the
February Silver Tea to be held at
the home of Mrs. Royal Rands, Feb.
5. At this time each person who
has taken part in the capsule stunt
will tell what her capsule has done
for her and whom she thinks it is,
and the identity will then be re
vealed. L. E. Marschat and Mrs. Martha
Titus made a business trip to Hepp
ner Saturday on business connected
with the coming declamatory con
test. Mr. Marschat is chairman of
a committee for reorganization of
the methods of handling the dec
lamatory contest, involving a con
sideration of having divisional con
tests so that the contests at Hepp-
ner will not be so lengthy. Mrs.
Titus was on a committee to work
with representatives of Umatilla
county with a viewpoint of finding
some common ground for intersec
tional declamatory contests. Mrs.
Rodgers Is chairman of this com
mittee. The executive committee
will meet in the near future and
complete its plans for the contest
The date will be set at this time.
A wedding of interest was that of
Esther Nicerson and Eli Knight on
Saturday, Jan. 11, at Pendleton,

by County Judge Schannep at 11 a.
m. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Nickerson,
aunt and uncle of the bride, accom
panied them and acted as witnesses.
They returned on Sunday and will
remain at the home of the bride's
parents for a few days and then go
to Sunnyside, Wash. The bride, who
Is just 18, is the eldest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Nickerson and
the groom is a stranger here, but
a man of sterling worth. They
were given a charivari on Sunday
Lexington acted as host to the
Pomona grange on Saturday, Jan.
11. More than 40 persons from
Boardman attended in spite of the
extreme cold but even so the Wil
lows grange carried away the ban
ner for attendance.
Eighty-four persons were given
the fifth or Pomona degree at this
meeting. Members of Greenfield
grange put on two beautiful tab
leaux. Mrs. Rands sang with Mrs.
Mead at the piano, during the por
trayal of these. The grange at Lex

Mrs. A. W. Porter came home
Sunday from a pleasant week's visit
with relatives at Portland.

Richardson was worse was received
Saturday. Mrs. Richardson went

proved. She returned on Sunday.
Boardman's basketball team did
not make as good a showing Sat
urday night at Stanfleld as was de
sired. There were several reasons
for this a smaller floor, and some
of the stronger members of the
team being Incapacitated. Stanfleld
simply walked all over them. Better
luck next time.
Boardman farmers who are milk
ing cows are pretty much discour
aged over present cream prices and
Boardman ranchers owning sheep
are wondering how they will be able
to pay to have their sheep sheared
in the spring with wool at its pres
ent extreme low ebb. Pity the poor
farmer for being a farmer. Hay
high, feed high, cream low, wool
low, turkeys low; it's a great life
and at that the average farmer here
though poor he may be, isn't worry
ing about his food supply or stand
ing in' a bread line.
Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Waite were
both quite ill with flu, but now are
on the mend. Dr. Gregson of Ar
lington was called on Friday and
advised Mr. Waite to remain in bed
for several days longer. Mr. Thur
ber was the relief operator sent out
from Portland the first day or so.
Mr. Thurber is a versatile person,
being not only an operator but an
aviator, photographer, and a writer
for the Associated Press in addition
to holding the present world's rec
ord for distance in a glider. He
plans to bring his glider up to this
section some time because of the
contour of the land. He feels that
opportunities for an even greater
distance are offered than in the val
ley. The interesting pictures of pet
roglyphs at Roosevelt were all tak
en by Mr. Thurber.
Wo may not have much to brag of
financially in this section, but we
surely do have the climate, and the
past week we had almost too much
of it, but previous to that time we
had weather that would make a
Californian livid with envy.

Many salads would be improved
by better seasoning, particularly by
the addition of salt in vegetables.
One satisfactory way of getting the
salad well seasoned is by preparing
the ingredients a little beforehand,
and allowing them to soak in
French dressing for a while. They
may then be drained and used with
any type of dressing desired.
A heavy, rich meal is more enjoy
able and more healthful if followed
by a light dessert, while a richer,
more substantial dessert may very
