County Grange Council
Meets at Rhea Creek
At the hall of Rhea Creek grange
on Sunday the County Grange coun
cil was called to order at 10:45 a.
m. by the chairman, Minnie Mc
Farland, who presided. A planned
program for the day's work had
been prepared by the chairman and
was well followed through. In the
morning session were the opening
song, minutes of last meeting, read
ing of correspondence, considera
tion of new and old business and
the reports of masters of the various
granges. These reports proved in
teresting and Instructive as each
grange, through Its master, tells of
the activities, membership gain,
financial standing, and what the va
rious committees are doing in agri
cultural, legislative and cooperative
work and the many projects taken
up between Pomona and County
Council meetings. These reports
are a real help, as in this way we
get new ideas and learn what have
proved to be successful methods of
handling grange work.
At about 12 o'clock the assem
blage was delighted to hear the call,
"Dinner is served," and it was a
pleasure to feast' with the good
members of Rhea Creek grange in
their well arranged dining room.
The afternoon meeting opened
with singing and the business of
the day was resumed by talks by
masters, lecturers and others on
grange membership. Four mem
bers -from Washington county
(whose names your correspondent
did not get) were present, and one
of them, a lecturer, gave a good talk
on that subject Groups were form
ed by the different committee rep
resentatives from different granges
and plans laid for future work. The
H. E. C. group seemingly did not
care "to tell the world" their plans,
and there is doubtless a pleasant
surprise coming from them later
on. Following a group discussion
by the cooperative committee, O. L.
Lundell announced a meeting of
the county cooperative shipping or
ganization to be held in lone on
Saturday, May 12th. The agricul
tural committee report was made
by C. W. Smith, county agent. Their
plans are chiefly weed eradication
work, and keeping the membership
Informd on the AAA, and it was
suggested that the agricultural com
mittee keep posted on latest infor
mation concerning allotments.
Much interest is being taken right
now in legislative questions and
the legislative' committee group
had quite a sizeable line-up of work
for the immediate future. The
truck and bus bill was explained
and discussed by J. O. Kincaid and
Chas. W. Wicklandcr, state deputy,
suggested that truck owners take
membership in A. C. T. O. in order
to build strength to fight the bill
before election, also suggested that
we take note of the legislators vot
ing against the bill. Some time
was taken up in talks on the ad
visability of abolishing the lower
house of the legislature and having
the bills presented at the first meet
ing acted on a few weeks later at
a second meeting, giving time for
a thorough study of the bills be
fore acting on them. The legisla
tive committee asks that everyone
read the Bulletin carefully for the
legislative Information it contains,
Jesse Richards, master of Stan-
field grange, Mr. Penny and Mr
Dunning from Umatilla county all
attended the council meeting and
each gave a talk on a number of
legislative questions. Mr. Richards
Is candidate for nomination to the
office of joint senator from the dis
trict comprising, Morrow, Umatilla
and Union counties. Bro. Corson
of The Dalles, representing the
Grange Bulletin, was present and
explained the advertising contest
now being carried on. He reports
success in signing up advertising
for the Bulletin. He further stat
ed that a special edition of the Bul
letin, consisting of eight pages, will
be on the press this week with in
formation of interest to those ex
pecting to attend State Grange,
about hotels, camp cabins, camp
grounds, stores, service stations,
etc., and it would be well for you
to have a copy of this issue to take
along with you. The date of the
State Grange meeting is May 12th
to 15th, Inclusive.
Pomona Lecturer Mary Lundell
led the group In a recreation stunt
which was much enjoyed, after
which the committee reports were
resumed. The meeting was then
closed.. It being the general ex
presslon that it had been a busy,
instructive and educational, as well
as pleasant gathering. At 6 p. m.
the ladles of Rhea Creek grange
again delighted the visitors by serv
ing them a luncheon consisting of
clam chowder, jello, cake and cof
fee. This was for all those who
were remaining for the evening
Pomona officers met In the eve
ning to rehearse the 5th degree, and
four members of Lena grange had
the Pomona degree conferred upon
them. Ray W. Gill, Btate master,
was In attendance and the degree
team was glad to receive helpful
suggestions from him, and also
from Chas. W. Wicklander, state
deputy. Mr. Gill's visit was much
enjoyed, and a number of questions
pertaining to grange work- were
asked and answered.
Th Pomona officers will exempli
fy the 5th degree at the Gilliam
Wheeler Pomona meeting in Con
don. May 26th, and have accepted
the invitation of Anna Skoubo,
master of Boardman grange, to
meet at Boardman about 1 p. m.,
Saturday, May 19th, to rehearse the
work. The Greenfield grange la
lies are putting on the tableaux
work at Condon.
Willows grange will hold their
business meeting on May 12th, and
will give a public dance at their
hall in Cecil on May 19th. Correspondent

tration. At the beginning of the school
year 1933-34, the newly installed
student body officials faced the try
ing task of rallying the school spirit.
Upon taking office, the new ad
ministration immediately made
known its authority and announced
its intention to return the control
of student functions to the students
This administration fanned the
dying embers of school spirit into
blazing life. It created a new in
terest among the students, and en
forced all the old traditions of the
The student body is now controll
ed by a new democratic government
of the students, by the students,
and for the students.
This administration has set a
good example for the rest of the
students to follow, and as Abraham
Lincoln said, "the success of the
Nation depends on the coming gen
erations." So if the coming gener
ation of students will recognize and
follow the example set by our pres
ent student body officials, we need
have no fear for the success of our
school so far as spirit and democ
racy are concerned.
"H" Club Presents Program
The "H" club entertained at the
Friday assembly. Marvin Morgan
held the student body spellbound
when he took Howard Furlong for
a "spin" in his imaginary "flivver."
After the ride, Coach Mabee pre
sented letters to the following stu
dents: football: Roy Gentry, Claire

and Ed Dick; basketball: Roy Gen

Floyd Jones and Joe Green; girls'
gym: Ethyl Hughes, Lorena Wil
son, Juanita Morgan and Jennie
Swendig. These girls earned 120
points for doing various exercises,
hiking, running, jumping, throwing
and bicycle riding.
The program was closed with a
short skit in which Claire Phelan
played the "boogie man" and scared
Paul Phelan. Mrs. Ayrs' son. Mrs.
Ayers, Marvin Morgan, hid the so-
called boogie man, her lover, in a
closet, and Mr. Ayers, Harold Ay
ers, came and found him.
Harold Ayers, Claire Phelan, Mar
vin Morgan and Roy Gentry, grad
uating seniors, were presented
sweaters for having earned three
or more letters in one sport.

Fortunately, the public is fast
returning to the use of laxatives
in liquid form.
A properly prepared liquid laxa

There is no discomfort at the time
and no weakness after. You don't
have to take "a double dose" a day
or two later.
In buying any laxative, always
read the label. Not the claims, but
the contents. If it contains one
doubtful drug, don't take it.

there are no mineral drugs. Its in

Campaign Started With
Better Cream as Object
A statewide campaign to improve
the quality of cream for butter
making in Oregon was launched the
first week in May by four cooper
ating agencies interested in further
ing the butter quality of the state.
A series of 10 meetings wore held
first at which four leaders of the in
dustry contacted creamerymen and
others in most sections of the state,
explaining the desirability of the
program and means of accomplish
ing the results sought
The National Creamery Butter
makers' association is sponsoring
a national campaign for cream bet
terment, following more strict reg
ulation by the federal authorities on
butter quality. This movement
reached Oregon just at the time the
new butter code made some cream
grading with higher payment for
top quality mandatory on the In
dustry. Agencies cooperating in the move
ment are the Oregon Dairy Prod
ucts Improvement association, the
state department of agriculture, the
Oregon butter committee created
by the new code, and the dairy de
partment at the state college.
