This community has been sadden
ed by the tragedy which occurred
Thursday and was the cause of the
death of Edward Compton, eighteen
year old local boy, who passed away
early Monday morning at the Pen
Late Thursday afternoon Edward
and a friend from Umatilla were
riding in the Compton motor boat
on the Columbia river when the
flywheel exploded throwing pieces
of steel toward Edward who was
nearest the motor. He was struck
in the left leg above the knee by the
flying pieces, tearing a very large
hole in his leg, shattering several
inches of the bone and cracking
the knee; also his left thumb was
cut off. His friend's right hand
was badly mangled but he took off
his shirt and used it as a turniquet
on Edward's leg and then rowed for
shore near Coyote and ran for help.
Men on the section were just quit
ting work and they carried Edward
from the boat and Arthur Allen
took him to Pendleton in his car.
After arriving at the hospital It was
nearly an hour before any doctor
could be reached.
Although he was very weak from
loss of blood and from the shock
he was In good spirits at all times.
Eut on Saturday evening blood pois
oning set in his leg and it was nec
essary to amputate it, and he passed
away at 2 a. m. Monday. His fath
er, L. W. Compton, and sisters Dor
othy and Virginia were with him.
His mother who was in Los Angeles
at the time of the accident arrived
in Pendleton shortly after his death.
Funeral services were held Wed
nesday in Umatilla at the Catholic
church and interment was in Pen
dleton. Edward would have been a senior
in high school this year and was a
leader among his friends, and will
be greatly missed by all. He has

Diet of Oregon Trout
Discussed in Bulletin
The bulk of the diet of cutthroat,
rainbow and eastern brook trout
found in Oregon streams and lakes
consists of animal matter, and
while they evidently prefer insects
such as mayflies, stoneflies, caddis
flies, midges and blackflies, they
are known to eat crustaceans, spi
ders, water-mites, molluscs, fish, fish
eggs, and occasionally earthworms,
free-living nematodes, leeches, mill-
ipeds, centipeds, scorpions, frogs,
snakes, birds and small mammals.
This fact, together with a great
deal of detailed information on the
eating habits of various kinds and
sizes of Oregon trout, is contained
in "A Preliminary Survey of the
Food of Oregon Trout," a bulletin
just issued by the Oregon State col
lege experiment station. This pub
lication is in the nature of a prog
ress report oi. cooperative investi
gations undertaken by the station
at the request of the Oregon State
Game commission. It presents,
however, basic knowledge valuable
to sportsmen and to the game com
mission alike, leading to an ulti
mate study of the productivity of
Oregon streams and lakes.
The survey so far has brought
out, for instance, the fact that nat
urally selected food varies with the
size of fish as well as the kind, in
dicating that hatchery reared fish
of different sizes should be liberat
ed in places along streams and in
the parts of lakes where their nat
ural food is present.
Although the major portion of the
fish food investigations so far have
been restricted to laboratory analy
ses of fish stomach contents, partial
stream and lake surveys of fish
foods in several sections of the state
have been made, the bulletin says.
While these surveys were incom
plete they nevertheless indicated
that the amounts and kinds of fish
food organisms vary greatly, be1
tween different waterways. Some
streams and lakes are so sparsely
populated with fish food organisms
that the planting of additional fish

O.S.C. GRAB GETS POST.
An agricultural graduate of Ore
gon State college of this year has
just been appointed to a position at
the government experiment station
in the Virgin Islands, part of the
West Indies. Robert Nichols, who
was graduated last June, will be
horticulturist in the experiment
station at Christiansted on St. Croix
Island. His beginning salary will
be $2800 a year, according to word
received by G. R, Hyslop, who was

Dallas Many Polk county or.
chardists are convinced that the
best time to plant cover crops is
before the fall rains start, says
County Agent J. R. Beck, as they
have found that they get the best
growth by seeding late in August.
The cheapness of vetch seed this
year offers an excellent opportunity
for making use of this green ma
nure crop, Mr. Beck says. The cost
of a vetch cover crop will be less
than $1 per acre, he believes, and in
some cases not more than 75 cents
if the seed is purchased before it is
