of pneumonia following an opera

Davis School Recognized
In Junior Red Cross Work
In carrving out a program of cor
respondence exchange work be
tween schools of the United States
and foreign countries as outlined by
the Junior Red Cross, Miss Audrey
Beymer, teacher of the Davis school
near lone recently received a com
plimentary letter from Geo. T. Ber
ry, assistant national director of the
organization. An excerpt from the
"The portfolio was so very fine
that we showed it to almsot all of
the members of the staff. Some
booklets we have received from
time to time have been very much
more elaborate, but the simplicity
of the Davis portfolio, and the beau
tiful sentiments expressed in the
letter from the teacher and the chil
dren makes the booklet one of very
great value to the' accomplishment
of Junior Red Cross ideals. There
is something very inspiring about
the portfolio, and I am sure that
that spirit will be caught by the for
eign children who receive your ma
terial. We took the liberty of copy
ing your own letter to be used as a
sample of the kind of greeting we
like to see teachers exchange. I
hope you will have no objections."

Jesus loved the mountains. In
their fastnesses, He fought His
greatest battles and achieved the
most glorious victories of His life.
The climax of His struggle to
"destroy the works of the devil"
came when He ascended Mt Cal
vary and placed "final judgment
forever on the Prince of this
This idea of moving mountains is
always associated with the problem
of evil; and the triumph, through
Divine Grace, of humanity over the
power of evil; by real faith in God.
But it is not that we should pros
trate ourselves before any moun
tain of evil, or whatever, as though
it were an expression of the will of
God. But, we are to seek to ex
plode and clear away the mountain
by asking and expecting and be
lieving for, great thing3 from God.
Many "Mountain Movers" of ser
ious obstacles are seen in the annals
of the Old Testament. By a ven
turous faith in God they did great
things. They were not afraid to at
tempt the seemingly impossible.
They staggered .not at the promise
of God through unbelief. We read
the inspiring account of their ex
ploits in the eleventh of Hebrews.
This same Mountain Moving spir
it was a chief characteristic of the
Christian Church for the first three
centuries of the Christian era. They
believed that all things were possi
ble with and thru God. They had
not learned to "wink" at the evils
of their day.
At every great crisis in history
the Church of Christ has sent forth
an army of Mountain Movers to
overthrow organized evil, and to
give a new birth to New Testament
Christianity; to overthrow war and
be done with it; to heal and fuse di
vided Protestantism by substitut
ing for dividing prejudice, the bless
ed tie that should, (but which does
NOT), bind our hearts in Christain
The problems of this hour call
again and again for an army of
"Mountain Movers" of the New Tes
tament kind. Come with us, if you
have not a Church home, and help
in moving some of the mountains
of this day, out of the way of the
forward move of New Testament
Christianity. For the coming Lord's
uay the sermon subjects are: At
the Morning Worship, "Be Saved."
For the Evening Worship, "Does
Christianity Pay?" "If ye have
faith as a grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain, re
move hence to yonder place and it
shall remove; and nothing shall be
impossible to you." Matt. 17-20.

Results of Eastern Oregon Experi
ment Station Work Recorded
in New College Bulletin.
The oft-argued question among
stockmen as to whether beef heif
ers should be bred to calve at two
or three years of age is no longer a
question. The earlier age is the
best according to actual data gath
ered as the result of combined feed
ing and breeding tests run at the
Eastern Oregon branch experiment
station at Union over a period of
from four to six years, and which
have just been concluded.
In additon to the breeding angle
the experiments included compari
sons between light and heavy win
ter feed and between different kinds
Conclusions from these tests re
ported in Station Bulletin 271, "De
ferred Breeding of Beef Cows,"
which is just off the press, are to
,the effect that it is more profitable
to have heifers calve at two years
of age than three. Although the
first calves are smaller and the
heifer is lighter for the first few
years, by the age of four years the
early calving heifer has given 36.15
greater returns than the one bred
at three years.
That the effects of early breeding
are not changed by light or heavy
feeding in winter was also brought
out in the tests. Straw at the rate
at Vi pounds to each pound of hay
was found a satisfactory combina
tion, as was silage at the rate of
two pounds to one of hay. Feeding
the heifers two-thirds of the hay
they would eat was found distinctly
more profitable than a full ration.
Heifers wintered on straw and
alfalfa, beginning to calve as two-
year olds, showed a profit of $49.44
per head, while heifers fed a full
ration and bred to calve as three-
year olds showed a loss of $36.10 per
neaa, or a difterence of more than
$85 a head in favor of the early
Dreeding and light feeding.

able from county agents or from
the college, upon request.
