Lions Eat and Talk Lamb;
Wheat Situation Also
Given Attention.
MEAT EXHIBIT HELD
Choice Cuts With Purpose Told; R-
A. Thompson Presented Cup
Won at Exposition.
Advertising measures for the ben
efit of Morrow county's largest ba
Bic industries, wheat and sheep,
held the limelight at the Lions club
meeting Monday, with the serving
of lamb and a lamb demonstration
used to emphasize points of the dis
cussion. Chas. B. Cox, past pres
ident of the Eastern Oregon Wheat
league and active in wheatmen's
organizations, presented a short dis
cussion of the wheat situation. Mrs.
W. P. Mahoney, president of the
Women's Auxiliary of the Oregon
Wool Growers association, Garnet
Barratt, a vice president of the Ore
gon Wool Growers association, and
Leonard Schwarz, local butcher,
took the lead in the lamb discussion
and demonstration.
A feature of the meeting was the
presentation to R. A. Thompson by
C. W. Smith, county agent, of the
Rambouillet Breeders association
cup, recently won by Mr. Thompson
in competition at the Pacific Inter
national Livestock exposition in
Portland. Petite Miss Lorene Ed
wards, second grade pupil of the
Lexington schools, favored with an
essay on the President's Thanks
giving day proclamation, and Miss
Alice Montgomery, Lexington high
school instructor, was well receive
in two readings, "Home Sweet
Home" and "Alice."
Signal Honor Told
Mr. Smith was appointed by Pres
ident C. L. Sweek to make the pres
entation to Mr. Thompson, on tele
graphic authorization from the sec
retary of the Rambouillet Breeders
assciation that the Lions club make
such presentation. In a few well
chosen words Mr. Smith called at
tention to the signal honor which
winning of the trophy brought not
only to Mr. Thompson -but to the
community as well, and compli
mented Mr. Thompson on his in
dustry in building up a fine flock of
thoroughbred stock, declaring that
in a few years Mr. Thompson will
be recognized as one of the leading
breeders of Rambouillet sheep In
the country. To show the value of
herd Improvement he cited the fact
that this year Mr. Thompson's prize
buck fleece took first place over the
fleece of Its sire. Mr. Thompson
replied in compliment to Mr. Smith
for being responsible for the fleece
having been displayed, saying that
many other fleeces equally good had
gone Into wool sacks without re
ceiving attention, and In behalf of
the woolmen thanked the Lions
club for cooperating In helping put
across the lamb campaign.
Mr. Cox, in discussing the wheat
situation, cited the Important part
wheat has played In the economic
life of man since first discovered
among the early lake dwellers. That
it has been seized upon as a tool by
capitalistic interests is shown, he
said by more than a billion and a
quarter bushels being traded last
year in the Chicago pit alone, while
the total United States production
for the year was approximately 800
million bushels. He referred to
government intervention as one of
the hopes for Improving the condi
tion of the producer.
Auxiliary Helps Work
Mrs. Mahoney told of the pur
poses of the women's auxiliary of
the wool association, wnlcn sne
stressed to be helpfulness In solv
ing the association's problems rath
er than a mere social adjunct She

Forest Road Money
Doubled in State, 1931
Apportionment of $9,500,000 in
forest highway funds this fall to 29
states and two territories is making
possible more rapid road construc
tion on the national forests, says
the U. S. forest service, Portland.
Oregon will receive $1,334,195 or
an increase of $701,557 and Wash
ington $669,555 or an increase of
$336,939 over 1930 allotments.
In most of the regions receiving
forest highway funds, the allocated
amount will be more than double
that of the last fiscal year. For
1930, Oregon was apportioned $632,
638, and Washington $332,614, so
that the new amounts are over
twice the former figures. For five
years the annual federal appropria
tion for forest highways has been
$4,500,000. Under provisions of the
Oddie-Colton law, an additional
fund of $5,000,000 became available
for the first time last July, to be
used in the current fiscal year.
Division of these funds for con
struction of highways within and
adjacent to national forests is made
on the basis of area and value of
the forests. Half the amount is ap
portioned according to the ratio of
the national forest area in a given
state to the total area of all the
national forests. The other half is
divided in proportion to the value
of the national forest lands in each
state.
This road-building activity, more
than doubled this year, is part of a
continuing program. An equal am
ount of federal funds has already
been appropriated for the work in
the fiscal year 1932.
In addition to the expanded pro
gram of forest highway construc
tion, the forest service is continuing,
with funds from other appropria
tions, the construction and mainten
ance work on secondary roads, and
on protection roads and trails in
the national forests.
