SET FOR CLUBBERS
Largest Attendance on Record Is
Promised for Session to
Start June 8.
Between 700 and 800 4-H club
boys and girls, ranging in age from
12 to 20 years, and representing
more than 30 Oregon counties will
arrive on the Oregon State college
campus June 8 for the Seventeenth
Annual Club Summer session.
Despite the much-talked-of econ
omic depression, both the total at
tendance and the number of boys
and girls attending on scholarships
awarded by the state fair and by
various service clubs and other or
ganizations of the state will be con
siderably larger than in any pre
vious year, according to H. C. Sey
mour, state club leader.
Regular classes in agricultural
and home economics subjects,
games and all forms of supervised
recreation, daily assemblies with
prominent men of the state as
speakers are provided for the boys
and girls during their two-weeks'
stay on the campus. Classes in for
estry and training in fire prevention
are among work offered for the
boys for the first time this year. A
number of additions have also been
made In classes for girls.
The club members will live in the
college dormitories again this year,
will have the use of the regular col
lege laboratories, and will be taught
by members of the college faculty.
In addition to the broadcasts put
on by certain counties each evening
over KOAC, the college radio sta
tion, one class will be broadcast
each day, so that parents and oth

The supply of beef In storage Is
light compared to last year and to
the average, the college report
points out. Holdnigs of pork prod
ucts, except lard, have increased un
til there is now more on hand than
last year and the average at this
time of the year. Stocks of lamb
are light, but the supply available

W. C. T. U. NOTES.
MART A. NOTSON, Reporter.
The talk by the wets that the re
turn of beer would help the farmer
because of the increased use of
grain in the manufacture of beer
is sheer nonsense. The government
records show that 2,500,000,000 more
pounds of grain is used each year to
produce the 212 pounds extra milk
per capita consumed annually since
prohibition was enacted than was
used by all the breweries and dis
tilleries in 1917, the last normal wet
year. The money that formerly
went over the bar for drink is used
to a great extent to buy extra milk
for the little children. How can
anyone with any heart wish for the
return of the liquor business at the
expense of the helpless little chil
dren? Especially is this so when it
would not help the farmer in the
least, but would be a detriment to
Joy Elmer Morgan, editor of the
Journal of the National Education
association, says: "All over Ameri
ca schools are being built where
breweries once thrived, and the
money that in my childhood nour
ished the saloonkeeper and the
brewer is now going into schools,
homes and autos."
According to the Pittsburgh
Leader of January 6, 1901, there
were received at the Pittsburgh jail
in the year 1900 prisoners to the
number of 9,182. The year before
the number was 8,440. The Leader
attributed this marked increase to
the prevailing prosperity, reason
ing that more money means more
pleasure for the individual; more
pleasure, more license; more li
cense, more crime. The jail physi
cian stated that 95 per cent of the
prisoners came to grief through the
abuse of strong drink.
The wets argue that ten years'
test has proven that the 18th
amendment cannot be enforced. In
December, 1960, the secretary of
the navy reported to the president
that the suppression of the African
slave trade had received attention.
The law abolishing the slave trade
was enacted in 1808, fifty-two year3
before. Yet, in 1860, according to
the report of the secretary, twelve
vessels engaged in the slave trade
were captured and 3,119 Africans
were rescued. The act prohibiting
the slave trade was violated as long
as there was money in the trade.

An English cub reporter, fre
quently reprimanded for relating
too many details and warned to be
brief, turned in the following:
"A shooting affair occurred last
night Sir Dwight Hopeless, a guest
at Lady Panmore's ball, complained
of feeling ill, took a highball, his
hat, his coat his departure, no no
tice of his friends, a taxi, a pistol
from his pocket, and finally his life.
Nice chap. Regrets and all that"
The schoolmaster was explain
ing to his class of small boys the
nature of common fractions. "If
I take a potato, cut it in half, then
in quarters, and then in halves
again, what shall I have?"
"Chips, sir," was the unexpected
response from one small boy.
