is not a communist, to be allowed
to return to Russia for a visit The
book tells of her impressions of
the changes which have taken place
in the ten years since she had been
in her native land. Following this
review, Mrs. George Tucker gave a

In a recent issue of the Eugene
Register-Guard there is a two col
umn story regarding Bob Harbison,
a former student in the lone school,
who has turned a hobby into a prof
itable income. Bob had carved some
little toys out of Port Orford cedar
for his small daughter, Dorothy
Ann, and they attracted so much
attention from friends who visited
the Harbison home that, having
been idle for some time since the
call for university-trained archi
tects has reached a low ebb in the
past few years along with many
other vocations, he decided to make
more animals. He carved cats, el
ephants, squirrels, deer and other
animals, making them about five
inches high. These were offered
for sale in an art shop in Eugene
and their appeal was so great that
he was able to make and dispose
of 45 articles in the two months
before Christmas.
Among others who saw, appreci
ated and bought his little carvings
were members of the staff of the
art department of the University
of Oregon, and when the Civil
Works program included projects
for artists, Mr. Harbison was com
missioned to carve a series of Ore
gon animals for the university's
art school building. Two, a mother
cougar watching her cubs play, and
a mother bear on her hind feet
with two cubs beside her, have been
finished. These figures stand about
fifteen Inches high when mounted
on a base.
Mr. Harbison plans to extend his
work to include game boards, ash
trays, book ends, etc. His work is
very highly praised In the follow
ing words: "The design of the ani
mals Is distinctive. There is a
whimsy and delicacy of the design
that appeals perhaps more to ad
ults than to children. The squirrel
eating his nut almost moves while
you watch him. All the grace and
beauty of the deep woods is reflect
ed in the deer." lone friends of
the Harbison familv will h criori
to learn of the success of Bob In
his new work.

Wheat Growers May Still
Sign Allotment Contracts
Oregon farmers with an estimat
ed amount of wheat totaling 179,834
acres are once more eligible to join
in the wheat production control
program of the government and re
ceive allotment on which benefit
payments will be made for the next
two years unless the wheat price
reaches parity, as a result of the
reopening of the three-year wheat
control program recently announc
ed by Secretary Wallace.
Oregon is among the states with
a large signup in the regular cam
paign, getting 82 per cent of the
1,027,000 acres that make up the
Dase average amount seeded an
nually from- 1930 to 1932. Most of
the unsigned acreage in this state
is in relatively small holdings in
the diversified farming districts
west of the Cascades, according to
the Oregon State College extension
In reopening the campaign the
AAA officials say they have receiv
ed so many requests from growers
that they be given a second chance
that it is believed a large addition
al signup will be had, especially east
of the Mississippi river. The per
centage of signup is given as 70
per cent for the country as a whole.
The new signers will receive the
same future benefits that original
signers received, but will not get
the first payment of 20 cents a bu
shel on their allotments such as
have already been made to early
signers. Signup of additional wheat
growers may start at once, though
there will be no new campaign
Those who desire to join will go to
their county wheat control associ
ation where old blanks are being
adapted for the new use.
"The allotment plan provides a
measure of crop insurance," points
out Chester C. Davis, administrator
of the farm act Contract signers
are assured of their allotment pay
ments even though the crop is a
failure. The wheat contract calls
for making full adjustment pay
ments on the 1934 and 1935 crops, if
prices on these crops do not reach
parity. The payment already made,
and the remaining one of 8 cents a
bushel less local administrative
costs, are for the 1933 crop."
New signers will be eligible for
the remaining 1933 benefit but they
will have to eliminate any excess
seeded acreage above the 85 per
cent of past production allowed in
the contract covering the 1934 crop.
The method of bringing this excess
acreage down is left to the individ
ual, but it must be accomplished in
advance of the pre-harvest inspec
tion. Average farm price of wheat In
January was 69.4 cents a bushel,
while the parity price as computed
by the government, needed to give
farmers a fair exchange value, was
$1.02 1-2 a bushel.
The government reports that oth
er wheat exporting countries are
taking steps to comply with the in
ternational reduction agreement,
and that the United States will take
whatever action is necessary to
make the 15 per cent reduction this
country agreed to, '

Where Rest Is Found
"Oh that I had the wings of a
dove! For then I would fly away
and be at rest Lo, then would I
wander far off and remain in the
wilderness." Psalm 55:6-7.
David had been having a lot of
trouble His enemies had been mak
ing it warm for him; which added
to his already heavy burdens, he
felt pained and oppressed under his
load. And it was with this feeling
that he uttered the cry recorded in
the verse above.
"I wish I could leave all this
tangle; this perplexity about mon
ey; the apparent everlasting need
for struggle," said a business man,
tired and harassed. He had a feel
ing akin to that of David. A feel
ing we have all experienced at one
time or another. For there are times
when we do wish we could get away
from all our cares and troubles and
be at rest.
Well, this is a wrong feeling. For
the normal man or woman can find
rest only in the place and line of
duty. Never by fleeing from it.
An old writer said this about Dav
id's wish: "David should have been
praying for the strength of an ox
to bear his troubles, not for the
wings of a dove to fly away from
The necessity for courage, for ac
tion, for work, for struggle, Is
something from which none of us
can ever escape: That is, if we
would play our proper part in the
world's affairs. And the best way
in all the world to meet all such
situations as is pictured in David's
cry, is in the strength of the Spirit
of Jesus Christ in the lives of men
and women. There and there only
is real rest found this side of the

Democracy in Education
Urged by U. of O. Head
Eugene. A plea for a true "dem
ocracy in education," which will not
only provide for the needs of the
average and the below average stu
dent, but for those of superior abil
ity as well, was made here by Dr.
C. V. Boyer, acting president of the
University of Oregon, at the meet
ing of Oregon chapter of the Amer
ican Association of University Pro
fessors. Dr. Boyer was honor guest
at the meeting, at which he pre
sented his views on higher educa
tion In an informal talk.
President Boyer based his talk
on his definition of a liberal educa
tion, which he said is "an education
that expands the capacities of the
individual harmoniously." Such an
education, he pointed out, not only
supplies a man with learning on
many subjects, but leads him to In
tegrate the material from the va
rious fields so that his Intellectual
life may be both coordinated and
enriched. To this end the president
advocated further development of
courses such as the survey courses
here, that would actually teach stu
dents this coordination.
The president stressed especially
the ideal of excellence, which he
pointed out, has often given way to
the Idea of "getting by." "We stress
excellence on the athletic field, and
there is no reason why this stimu
lus could not be carried over into
the classroom and so inculcated in
to the student that he would carry
it on in his life work," Dr. Boyer
Dr. Boyer was introduced by Dr.
W. J. Kerr, chancellor of higher
education, who declared that the
new president had the full confi
dence and support of the chancellor
and the board of higher education.
By virtue of an Order of the
County Court, dated February 19,
1934, I am authorized and direct
ed to sell at public auction, as pro
vided by law, the following des
cribed real property, at not less
than the minimum price herein set
Lots 17, 18, Block 30, Irrigon,
minimum price to be $12.50.
Lots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10,
Block 25, Irrigon, minimum
price $35.00.
Therefore I will on the 17th day
of March, 1934, at the hour of 2:00
P. M., at the front door of the
Court House in Heppner, Oregon,
sell said property to the highest
and best bidder for cash in hand.
