Thomas McEntire Takes
Bride at Galena, Illinois
(The Galena Daily Gazette, Jan. 29)
Married life may be a long road
to travel on together but in some
cases the road that leads to mar
riage may be a very long one.
This is illustrated in a marriage
that took place here in Galena, to
day. Thomas McEntire left his
home in Tully Carrigallen, Co. Leit
rim, Ireland, some years ago and
journeyed to Heppner, Oregon, a
distance of over six thousand miles
from the "Old Sod." At Heppner
he spent many years in the stock
business and later lived at Echo,
Oregon. About the time Uncle Sam
was preparing material to build a
wall to stop immigration, a Mary
Jane Kiernan from the same parish
town, and country, came to White
Plains, New York, and soon after
entered St. Agnes Hospital to be
come a nurse.
Tom rememerng the woman's
privileges for this year of 1936 de
cided to leave Echo, Oregon, early
last December with his brother Ed
ward to make a trip of approxi
mately thirty-five hundred miles
back to New York to seek the hand
in marriage of some one he re
membered in Ireland. Mary Jane
Kiernan received the invitation
and accepted. The next important
consideration was a priest to mar
ry them. The one wanted was in
the same parish and county in Ire
land but he was located in Galena,
111., some twelve hundred miles
away. By mutual agreement trav
eling immediately became a pleas
ure for the bride and groom in
tended and their best man Edward,
as they set out for Galena, Illinois,
to have their marriage performed
Today they were married by the
Rev. J. T. Donohue, pastor of St
Michael's Church, Galena, 111. The
ceremony was followed by a Nup
tial High Mass sung by the chil
dren'g choir. The processional
march was by Mendelssohn.
As the bridal party left the
church the old favorite "Here Comes
the Bride" was played by Sister M.
Edward McEntire and Anne Mc
Namee were the witnesses. The
prevailing colors were naturally
green, white and gold. This eve
ning the happy party will leave
Galena on a twenty-five hundred
mile trip back to Oregon.
If mileage in this case figures
their marriage years should be
very long and we hope happy.

showed by photographs how bunch
grass may be killed in three years'
time by clipping or grazing it so as
to prevent its ever reaciiing the
height of five to six inches. The
grass roots, he said, are fed by the
leaves, and these leaves do not be
gin replacing food material in the
roots until they have reached the
height of about six inches. Up to
that point the roots themselves pro
vide the material which goes into
the leaves. If, therefore, the grass
is continuously cut off before it
reaches this height it is a matter
only of time before the roots will
become exhausted of plant food
and will die of starvation. Mr.
Jackman discussed at some length
the place of crested wheat grass in
our farming set-up and urged the
planting of a few acres of this grass
on a large number of farms for use
as seed on such farms. There is
nothing complicated, he aid, in the
matter of establishing the stand of
crested wheat grass or in harvest
ing it and no additional equ pment
is necessary for either.
G. R. McDole, formerly soils ex
tension specialist in Idaho and now
with the Soil Conservation service
at Pullman, gave a lantern slide
talk on soil erosion and the cul
tural practices being used in con
trolling soil losses. Many of the
slides shown by Mr. McDole -as
typical of severe water erosion
could easily have been taken right
here in Morrow county. Mr. Mc
Dole emphasized the idea that the
tool used was not itself of so much
importance as the results that were
obtained by that tool. He said that
we must forget the old idea that
good farming consisted of having
our summer fallow bare and clean
of all forms of trash. The straw,
he said, must be kept on and close
to the surface of the soil if we are
to control either wind or water
erosion. Mr. McDole went to some
length in discussing the use of a
sub-soiler. They have found in
Idaho, he said, that twelve inches
is ordinarily deep enough to go with
this type of tillage and that the
power requirements for chiseling
to a depth of twelve inches are only
half of the requirements for going
to a depth of sixteen inches. He
said that six chisel points in dry
ground ordinarily take about the
same amount of power as six four-teen-inch
mold-boards in the spring.
He described equipment which
could be adapted to the points of
a regular mold-board plow and by
removing the mold-boards give just
as satisfactory results as any other
tool in chiseling.
E. H. Miller, Lexington, presi
dent Eastern Oregon Wheat league,
discussed the league's history and
accomplishments and urged that
every wheat farmer in the county
become a member and contribute
not only his moral but financial
support in carrying on the work
which the league is doing for the
betterment of wheat growers.

Perhaps the greatesf need in
America today is for more spirit
uality. The church needs to re
vive its spiritual power. Govern
ment has been ignoring spiritual
things in its program of recovery.
The business world must seek spir
itual guidance if it expects to build
permanent prosperity. Education
must recognize the need for soul
culture if it is to provide the kind
of citizens which will preserve the
ideals of the founders of this na
tion. The spiritual has been slight
ed in individual lives.
The Bible school lesson and ser
mons for this Sunday will help you

Not Reduce Wheat Yield
So far as yield of wheat is con

stubble for summer mallow, accord
ing to D. E. Stephens, superintend
ent of the Sherman County branch
The Soil Conservation service has
been placing much emphasis lately
on leaving as much wheat stubble
on the surface as possible. This is
accomplished when either the one
way disk or the double disk is used
for summer fallowing. The one
way disk is favored by farmers in
regions where soil blowing is prev
alent. Unless stubble is present
however, use of disks aggravates
Following are the average yield
records at Moro with double disk
ing for fallow and plowing, with
both winter and spring wheat, from
1926 to 1935 inclusive:
Disked fallow: winter wheat, 17.5
bu.; spring wheat 17 bu.
Plowed fallow: winter wheat 17.2
bu.; spring wheat 17.6 bu.
At the Pendleton Field station
five-year figures are available for
all three types of preparation with
winter wheat. They follow for
Moldboard plowing 42.6 bu.
One-way disking 41.8 bu.
Double disking 42.1 bu.
These differences are all so slight
as to indicate no appreciable differ

all these experiments the fallow
was kept free from weeds. When
