In its Issue of April 20, 1929, re
ferring to the recommendation by
Senator McNary of Colonel Alfred
E. Clark for the office of Solicitor-
General of the United States, the
"Oregon Voter" said, "A. E. Clark
has the legal learning, the forensic
ability and the dignity to represent
the Attorney General of the United
States In appearances before the
Supreme Court He would be a
worthy successor to distinguished
predecessors if appointed Solicitor
General." Colonel Alfred E. Clark

The money the girls earned April
8 when they sold the candy which
they had made was spent for wei
nies. The girls had a picnic down
on Rock creek at the old Bleakman
place. Each one took the buns for
herself. Neva Bleakman baked a
angel food cake and took along.
It proved that Neva really bakes
good cakes. Mrs. Knighten took
marshmallows which they toasted
after the weinle roast
Mrs. Rudolph Ashbaugh and Mrs.
Bertha McDaniel accompanied the
Mrs. McDaniel and several of the
girls who are also members of the
forestry club, gathered evergreen
boughs which were used for dem
onstration purposes the next day.
The party returned about 9 o'clock
all reporting a good time.
L. J. Allen, the assistant state
club leader, and C. W. Smith, the
county agent, visitetd the school to
meet with the clubs. They met
with the Four Legged Chicken
club to teach them how to Judge
their rabbits. The members are
very enthusiastic about their rab
bits and we are sure they will all
be rabbit club members next year.
As Mr. Allen's and Mr. Smith's
time was limited the Hardman For
esters had to omit their business
meeting. Mr. Allen said the Hard
man Foresters was the first fores
try club organized in eastern Ore
gon. He also talked about the club
summer school. We hope Hard
man will have at least one delegate
at the school this summer.
Mr. Smith demonstrated the
boughs, but he couldn't fool the
foresters. They know yellow pine
and other evergreen trees when
they see them.
The boys and girls of Hardman
who are enrolled in the 4-H clubs
are very happy to say that they
help make up the nineteen thou
sand club members in Oregon.
We hope that next year there will
be even more club members and
more club projects in Hardman
and that the club members will car
ry on their work with as much
and even more interest, if that be
possible, than it was this year.
