A very pleasant time was enjoyed

Mrs. Allen in charge of the devo-

in the women's exchange which
has been the occasion of much fun.
No one is forced to take part in
this but anyone who wishes is glad

owned the controlling interest in a
store here for several years, and
still owns the store building in
town. Three of the girts are grad

the two younger children were in
the grade school. Mrs. Broyles is a

ECHOES OF THE FAIR
Mrs. C. G. Blayden was one of
the largest prize winners at the fair.
having a wonderful selection of can
ned goods. She received 17 prizes
in this section alone and earned
every one. The Blaydens have been
consistent boosters for the fair ever
since its inception and have always
taken the attitude that if the ar
ticles entered were not deemed wor
they of a prize, all well and good, it
helped to add to the display.
Mrs. E. T. Messenger was also
near the top when it came to blue
and red ribbons. Paul Smith won a
prize on nearly everything he en
tered, having the largest squash, the
largest sunflower, tallest cornstalk.
The monstrosities are not of any
commercial value but people like
to see these and so the fair board
always lists them. Mr. Smith also
had prizes on vegetables and livestock.
The opinion is general, it seems,
that the premium money for the
grange booths and the general farm
displays should be more equally div
ided. The grange booths were given
$20 and the farm exhibit $6. It is
no small task to arrange a farm
display and the money should be
larger. The premium for this was
formerly $10, but a shortage of
funds caused it to be lowered.
Would it be possible to have all
the exhibits on the same floor? It
would add much to the appearance
if it could be done.
Some entertainment is needed
for Friday afternoon of the fair.
Irrigon had a number of athletic
contests on that day, which ia a
splendid thing. This extra feature
presents the ever present problem
of finances, for funds for these
contests must be raised in some
other manner as the funds raised
by the dance and movie are needed
for the running expenses.
It has been suggested that we
elect our fair directors in October
so they will have time to plan for
the next fair without a last minute
rush. Let us try to do this. Mrs.
Faler is the retiring director this
year. She has served faithfully and
has done splendid work. We sug
gest that she be reelected.
The large display of club work
both indoors and out was a source
of much pleasure and pride and
made C. W. Smith, Mrs. Lucy M.
Rodgers and the various club lead
ers feel well repaid for all their
hard work. The club prizes: Sew
ing division I, Charlotte McCabe,
lone, first; Mildred Lundell, lone,
second, and Margaret Lindeken,
lone third. Sewing II, Bessie Wil
son, Irrigon, first; Norine Olson,

The Hand Work club prizes went

Beth Wright and Doris Allatott
Joseph Stevens of Rhea Creek,
Leah Mahrt of Hardman and Ed
ward Skoubo of Boardman were the
prizewinners in the Garden club.
Mrs. Worden of Eight Mile was
leader of the Poultry club there
and winners were Boyd Redding,
Myrtle Green and Nola Keithley,
Geo. Wicklander won first on his
turkeys and Wanda Shane had the
only pen of ducks.
On Saturday afternoon the 4-H
stock was judged and the girls'
demonstrations were held at the
same time. This was quite disap
pointing to many who wished to see
both but just how this could be ar
ranged is not known as many of the
club youngsters who came from the
far end of the county could be here
only one day.
In the stock judging contest the
following were chosen as a team to
represent Morrow county at the Pa
cific International in Portland this
fall: Clayton Shane, George Graves
and Delbert Machan. Boyd Redding
received the summer school scholar
ship with George Wicklander as al
ternate in the Poultry club.

cine King second. Ewe raised lambs
for market Jimmy Farley first and

George Graves, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Ward Graves, walked away
with the lion's share of the prizes,
having the grand champion calf,
which brings him the registered
Jersey calf given by Mrs. Bertha
Cool of lone. He also has the grand
champion lamb which gives him
the ewe given by W. O. King of
Boardman. Mitchell Ellis received
the Jersey calf offered by L. C.
Cooney and Clarence Frederickson
of Irrigon the scholarship. Jimmy
Farley was given the scholarship
for the second best lamb in the
grand champion class.

the health work handled by the
county physician as in previous
years. We do not know whether
this feeling is general in Lexington
or not, but we feel safe in saying
that outside of the few "perpetual
knockers" which every community
has, that the Boardman people feel
it would be a step backward to
eliminate the county nurse. Space
will not permit us to elaborate on
this, but we are all interested in
finances and would like to know
just how much in actual cash we
would save on taxes by doing away
with this office. The work that has
been done and the plans for future
work are justification enough to
continue, for, after all, the health
