Glenn Burroughs, who with his Mr. and Mrs. Ed Hackett visited
family is spending the summer at over Sunday with Heppner friends,
the home of his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. French Burroughs on Rhea
creek, is a professor in the state
teachers' college at Kirksville, Mo.
He and his famly arrived here some
two weeks ago, glad to be out of the
intense heat of the Mississippi val
ley. Severe conditions of drouth
prevailed there and the Bun shed its
blistering rays over the land relent
lessly. He states that the latest
word received from there was to
the effect that there had been no
let up and the thermometer regis
tered 107 In the shade. Mr. Bur
roughs is glad to be in Oregon and
enjoy the cooler weather conditions.
Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Wilson, daugh
ters Shirley and Dorotha, and Mr.
and Mrs. Harry O'Donnell depart
ed Sunday on a motor trip to the
San Francisco bay region for a two
weeks' vacation. The Wilsons ex
pected to visit at the home of Mr.
Wilson's brother-n-law and sister,
Mr. and Mrs. W. V. Crawford, at
Sausalito, at which time Mr. Craw
ford is taking a vacation from his
job in the city, and the O'Donnells
will vist with relatives and friends
at points about the bay where they
used to live. They had some fore
bodings about running into diffi
culties because of the strike, but
decided to take the chance.
Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Cutler of
Phoenix, Arizona, passed through
Heppner Saturday, and Mr. Cutler
took a little time to look up some of
his old-time friends. Quite a few
years ago Mr. Cutler came to the
county to recover from what he
was advised was tuberculosis with
little hope held for his recovery. He
got a job working with sheep on the
Johnny Woodward farm, slept out
in the open and revived his health
only to find that he had not been
afflicted with tuberculosis at all. He
is now enjoying good health and
would like to hear from some of his
old buddies. His address is Route
5, Box 554, Phoenix, Ariz.

Mr. and Mrs. French Burroughs
and their son Glenn were visitors
here Wednesday. The harvest is
finished at theBurroughs farm and
a yield of 8 bushels to the acre is
reported. For the season, this is
much better than was expected, and
Mr. Burroughs is quite well satis
fied. Some other pretty fair reports
are coming in from the Rhea creek
and Jordan Butte sections, a num
ber of yields around 12 bushels be
ing gathered with the combines,
and the quality is good.
We heard a lot of boasting Mon
day about how a game of croquet
to be played that evening at the
Charley Barlow court was going to
turn out; the next day we heard no
boasting by the said parties for the
game did not end as per schedule.
Joe Snyder and Tom Humphreys
were pitted against Chas. Barlow
and Will Dix, and the former were
humiliated. Evidently some addi
tional coaching is needed, but not
on behalf of the winners.
Rodney Keating, who several
years ago called on most of the farm
homes in the county selling a lead
ing make of cream separator and
who since was graduated in law
from the University of Oregon, was
a Heppner visitor Saturday from
his oftice in Portland. He expected
to cover most of eastern Oregon
before returning to Portland in
making a survey of business condi

ON OREGON FARMS
Corvallis Damage by squash
bugs has been reported to the O. S.
C. experiment station here from
southern Oregon, the Willamette
valley and the vicinity of Ontario
this year, according to Dr. Don C.
Mote, entomologist, and in past
years considerable damage has been
done by this pest along the upper
Columbia river near Hermiston.
The squash bug differs from most
of the large insects that infest gar
dens, Dr. Mote says, in that it has
piercing mouth parts and sucks the
juice of plants, feeding extensively
on gourds, melons, pumpkins, and
squash. They have also been found
in enormous quantities on the so
called "Man in the ground." Be
cause of their sucking habits they
can be killed only by contact sprays,
and recent tests indicate that the
pyrethrum spray known as Pyro
cide 20, applied according to direc
tions on the can, will kill the insects
when applied to them. Several py
rethrum sprays are on the market
under various commercial names,
such as Evergreen 20, Red Arrow
and others. Evergreen 20 is said
to have the same toxic constituents
as Pyrocide 20 which was used in
St. Helens The value of West
ern Rye grass as an emergency
crop that will make hay the same
year it is planted has been demon
strated in Columbia county where
considerable of it was planted this
spring after the winter floods and
excellent results are being obtained,
according to George A. Nelson,
county agent. On the Herman Man
nen farm at Midland Western Rye
was planted the first of April and
was ready to cut 80 days later. It
will undoubtedly produce two and
three tons per acre, Mr. Nelson said.
Canyon City The grasshopper
menace in Grant county, so far as a
serious infestation goes, is a thing
of the past for this year, reports
County Agent R. G. Johnston. The
Logan Valley Cattlemen's associa
tion worked diligently and with
federal aid for supplies has com
pletely wiped out the beds in that
district, Mr. Johnston says, thus
saving summer feed for at least
4000 head of cattle. The main beds
in the Fox Valley district were also
poisoned and killed out before the
hoppers spread very badly.
Strawberry Tests Point
To Better New Varieties
Results of this year's work in
strawberry breeding at the Oregon
State college experiment station are
highly encouraging to those who
have been endeavoring to get Ore
gon growers better commercial pre
serving and canning strawberry
varieties, reports George F. Waldo,
U. S. D. A. specialist working in
connection with the Oregon sta
tion. Farmers who visited the berry
plots this year during the various
field days saw more than 5000 seed
ling plants that had never before
fruited, and saw hundreds of oth
ers held over from previous years
for further testing.
Waldo now reports that from
those that fruited this year for the
first time he was able to select 96
that showed enough promise for
To hold its place as an important
canning and preserving center in
the strawberry industry, Oregon
needs a variety that is better than
the Marshall for the preserving
trade, and one that is better in
some respects than either the Et
tersburg or the Corvallis for the
canning trade, says E. H. Wiegand,
head of the work in horticultural
products at O. S. C.
For commercial preserving the
trade demands a bright red berry
of medium size with bright yellow
seeds. One of the U. S. D. A. crosses
has these characteristics but is un
suited otherwise for this region. It
is now being used in further cross
ing, and seedlings from it crossed

C ITIES TO BE SI RVEYED.
Eugene, Ore. Three cities in
Oregon, to be chosen for their repu
tation as well governed municipal
ities, will be surveyed by experts
under the direction of the League of
Oregon Cities, as part of the organ
ization's program of maintaining a
clearing house on municipal affairs,
it has been announced here by Hesv
man Kehrli, executive secretary of
the league and director of the Uni
versity of Oregon's bureau of mu
nicipal research and service.
Oregon City will be the first to be
surveyed, and Charles McKinley,
professor of political science at
Reed college, will be in charge. Mr.
McKinley is also a member of the
Portland city planning commission,
and is an expert in this work.
Selection of two other cities, one
of a population from 8,000 to 12,000!
and the other from 2000 to 2500, will
be announced later.
"Oregon City was chosen aa the
first city to be surveyed because of
the fine reputation It has established
for financial administration and ef
ficient service during the recent
years," said Mr. Kehrli. "This rep
utation has been established by the
testimony of city officials who have
received many helpful suggestions
from the officials of Oregon City
during recent years, and by the tes
timony of business and financial
agencies that come in contact with
cities throughout the state."
When the survey is completed
copies will be sent out to all civic
officials, and to anyone interested,
it is stated. It is planned to pub
lish the findings in The Common
wealth Review, journal of the col
lege of social science of the Uni
versity of Oregon.
