fire broke out in the small building
at the rear of Mrs. Helen Farrens'
residence on Second street A hole
was burned through the roof, but
all the furniture was removed from
the building before the water was
turned on the fire, so the damage
was only slight. The place is being
occupied temporarily by Mr. and
Mrs. Blain Blackwell.

Mr. Campbell said, that this pro
duce is brought in from the out
side when suitable ground, climate
and all is available for raising just
as good or better produce here in
Morrow county. He recalled days
of the past when the Hardman vi
cinity raised all the potatoes the
county could consume and more.
What is needed is to rid the county
of potato bug infection, and this
can be done, he said.
Mr. Rankin returned to the dis
cussion of asparagus growing, ex
hibiting two cans of home-grown
asparagus which he obtained from
the cannery at Hermiston one a
can of tips and the other a can of
soup stock. The canning process,
he explained, plays an important
part in marketing. Good asparagus
is cut two months after the peak
of the green market season has
been reached and this can only be
preserved and marketed by can
ning. Canning Problem Solved.
At present the Hermiston can
nery has facilities for cooking
about 200 cans an hour. Mr. and
Mrs. Ora L. Barlow, former Mor
row county people in charge of the
cannery, said the capacity could be
doubled at comparatively small ex
pense by installing a second retort
It is expected that the cannery will
be enlarged as the volume of pro
duce increases so that the canning
problem appears to be taken care
of for some time to come.
The local asparagus canned at
Hermiston is known as the All

were opened and their contents
sampled by the Lions, and a crate

Controlling Our Moods.
"Be of good cheer." Matt 9.2.
The text is a divine command.
And a divine command always im
plies ability to obey that command.
This particular divine command
implies ability on our part to con
trol our moods. If we had not the
ability to cultivate and maintain a
cheerful mood, we would not be
commanded to be of good cheer.
And it is especially in times like
these; and in times of illness and
disappointment; that we need to
hear and obey this divine com
mand; and control our moods and
BE OF GOOD CHEER.
The fact that we so often give
way to our feelings and drop into
a low, joyless, dull and despondent
mood is due more to a lack of faith
and effort on our part than to any
external circumstance. If we but
look about us, we shall find on ev
ery hand many who are inflnitetly
worse off than we are and who
are still keeping their heads up and
controlling their moods and are
being of GOOD CHEER.
There may be, and there are,
hard conditions to face, but if we
have the will and the determination
to face. these conditions with faith
and courage, we shall master them.
Never forget that No mattetr what
our trials may be, no matter how
depressing our circumstances, we
need not and should not, give way
to a feeling of despondency and
hopelessness. When we find our
selves about to yield to such a
mood, when we are tempted to be
bitter and hard and sad and melan
choly, we ought to remember that
we are divinely commanded to be
of GOOD CHEER, and we ought
to learn and remember that the
ONE who gave this divine com
mand is able to help us in every
time of need to be of GOOD
Life has its inevitable trials and
sorrows and struggles. But it is
possible for us all to face them with
courageous buoyancy and cheerful
ness. Why and how? Listen. We
have the assurance of divine help
if we put ourselves in the way of
it. What God commands us to do,
He pledges Himself to help us do.
And remember, too, that God helps
those who help themselves.
We can control our moods if we
will. It means a battle, and often
a hard battle. But the divine as
surance is that we shall be more
than conquerors if only we will
trust God and walk in His ways
and make the fight "Be of good

Early Diagnosis Campaign Ex

MRS. SADIE ORR DUNBAR.
Executive Secretary. Oregon Tubercu
It has been only 50 years since
Dr. Robert Koch, a cautious, reti
cent German doctor proved to the
world that tuberculosis was caused
by a germ. On the basis of his
discovery rests all the modern ma
chinery and knowledge for con
trolling this disease.
Many Oregonians now living
grew up in the belief that it was
inherited, a family taint, and neces
sarily fatal. They were told this,
and passed the thought on to oth
ers. Today, this old-fashioned be
lief is no longer accepted. The un
reasoning fear that was based up
on it has largely given place to the
understanding that, taken early,
tuberculosis is one of the most eas
ily controlled afflictions of man
kind, and that it is not inherited.
To further remove the fears and
phobias that for example, cause
people to put off having an exam
ination and X-ray, or to change
doctors when a diagnosis of tuber
culosis has been made, the Oregon
Tuberculosis association is conduct
ing, in cooperation with the 2,084
similar agencies in the United
States, its fifth annual Early Diag
Because tuberculosis is caused
only by the germ, which Koch first
discovered, every case must come
from another case. To "find the
other case" has therefore been tak
en by these modern health crusad
ers as their rallying cry. Physi
cians, health officers, public health
nurses, social workers and all in
terested citizens throughout the
state are being divided to share
in this great search. Anyone who
suspects he may have the disease
will be urged to let his doctor de

Northwest Wheat Carry
Over Less Than in 1931
Estimated stocks of wheat in in
terior mills and elevators of the
four Pacific northwest states, on
April 1, 1932, are only slightly more
than one-half of the stocks esti
mated on hand a year ago, reports
the bureau of agricultural econ

Stocks of wheat remaining in in
terior mills and elevators in Oregon
were estimated to have amounted
to 2,800,000 bushels on April 1, 1932,
representing a decrease of 400,000
bushels during the month from the
March 1 estimate. It is believed
that this represents almost entirely
a movement to terminals for ordln
arily very little hauling from farms
to warehouses is done until after
spring seeding is completed. The
current season is so late that move
ment from farm to warehouse dur
ing March was probably less than
usual. Stocks on farms March 1st
were estimated at 2,473,000 bushels
which, although considerably less
than the March 1, 1931, estimate
was about 15 per cent above the
five year average 1924-1929. The
movement of wheat to terminals
during March this year has been
considerably greater than was the
case last year when interior eleva
tor stocks were over twice as great.
Prospective carryover of the old
crop into the new crop season be
ginning July 1, will be much less
than a year ago, the total April
first stocks this year amounting to
only a little over one third more
than the July 1 carryover last year

three months remaining from the
