The October meeting of the P. T
A. was held Friday night with a
good attendance. An unusually good
program was given. The third and
fourth grades rhythm orchestra
played, the upper grade girls sang,
and two playlets, "Frances E. Wil-
lard" by the fifth and sixth grade
boys and "On Board the banta Mar
ia" by the seventh and eighth grade
bovs were well received. A clever
little doll dance was given by Mrs.
Sundstand. A dance by Dave Rose
and a reading by Allan Chaffee com'

It was decided to continue the
work in character education for an
other year. A membership contest
was started with Peter Farley lead
er of the West Side and Mrs. Her
eim of the East Side. At the close
of the evening the East Side was
slightly ahead. The contest will
last two months. Membership fees
are 25 cents a year. The losing side
is to treat the winners to lunch. A
resolution was passed unanimously
commending the work of the county
nurse. This resolution was to be
sent to the county court. The ques
tion of whether to serve lunch or
not at the close of the meetings
was a good natured riot with Geo.
Mitchell, a bachelor of epicurean
tastes, moving that we continue to
serve lunch and every man, tried
and true, backed him up with the
result that the women were out
voted. A motion was made that the
men be forced to serve every other
month, and was carried. It does
seem a needless amount of work to
serve refreshments each month but
majority rules and we must admit
that the men do their part when
placed on the refreshment commit
tees. Robert Price and family were
week-end guests at the home of his
brother, W. A. Price. They are
from Cove, Ore.

Advises sheep breeders,
"cull and cull severely"
In a recent talk to several hundred western
sheep breeders, Dr. 0. M. Nelson, Oregon
State College, advised his hearers to "cull
and cull severely." Importance and value
of his advice will be fully demonstrated in
the Sheep Division of 20th Annual Pacific
International Livestock Exposition, Port
land, Oregon, Oct. 25-Nov. 1.
Greater than ever, this year's Exposition
features 13 complete shows, including 4-H
Club, Smith-Hughes and Intercollegiate Ju
nior Agricultural Activities. Millions of
dollars worth of America's finest pure-bred
Beef and Dairy Cattle, Horses, Sheep, Hogs,
Goats, Foxes, Mink, Marten, Poultry and
Rabbits will compete for the $100,000 in' pre
miums. Whether your interests are in Sheep, Cat
tle, Hogs, or other farm livestock we here
at the First National Bank believe attend
ance at the Exposition will bring rich re
wards in practical information regarding
improved f arming operations.
