Suggestions Made at Meet
ing Here on Future
1937 Checks Asked for 1936 Land
Diversion; "Trashy" Sumraerf al
low, Grass Seeding Liked.
Representative farmers of the
county met at I. O, O. F. hall here
Tuesday afternoon in one of a series
of county meetings held for the pur
pose of making recommendations
on the AAA soil conservation pro
gram. " The recommendations of
the several county meetings will be
considered later at a district meet
ing, the outcome of which is ex
pected to Influence future adminis
tration of the soil conservation pro
gram in the northwest.
William Steen of the state soil
conservation committee assisted
with the local meeting. He is a
Umatilla county wheat raiser.
In gaining views of the farmers
in attendance, a list of questions
was handed each.
The first question, "What prog
ress has been made in soil conser
vation in your county under the 1936
agricultural conservation pro
gram?" was. answered by Joseph
Belanger, county agent, who cited
that 7000 acres had been turned un
der as green manure crops, and 6000
acres were in process of being
planted to crested wheat grass. In
discussing future practices, those
present recommended first that
"trashy" summerfallowing be fol
lowed, and secondly that unproduct
ive soil be planted to grass. These
recommendations were in answer
to the second question.
Question three asked, "Should a
greater portion of the payments be
made for soil-building practices
in 1936?" The question sheet ex
plained that two types of payments
were made in 1936, one for diver
sion of land to soil-conserving crops,
and the other for soil-building prac
tices. The group recommended that
payment be continued In 1937 for
diversion made In 1936 without
specifying any portion of payment
for a single type of practice.'
In answer to question four, ask
ing as to whether or not a maxi
mum total conservation allowance
should be established for each farm
or ranch, the group voted in favor
of establishing such maximum al
lowance. Question five asked whether the
crop income Insurance feature of
the present program should be en
larged. The group favored contin
uance of such a feature. This in
surance plan calls for setting aside
part of the Income in fat years to
be paid back In lean years ,to es
tablish what is termed a "normal

ROME. The big event in Rome,
for one traveller at least, was the
receipt of a copy of the Salem
Statesman, sent by the editor, Mr.
Charles Sprague, and containing a
fine account, with ample pictures, of
the projected new capitol at Salem.
These pictures aroused much In
terest when shown to Italian ac
quaintances. "Novo tipo italiano!"
they exclaimed. Of course they
were partly wrong; the new style
is not exclusively Italian but it is
to be' found springing up every
where one goes in all countries ex
cept one.
It is natural for Romans to be
Interested in capitols. They invent
ed the Idea. The very name is tak
en from the hill about four blocks
from here where we ventured in
the dusk last evening. With a good
strong slingshot one could proba
bly hie, from the roof of this hotel
(itself a former pulace) a dozen or
more structures that have once
served as the seat of government.
Governing is the principal local in
dustry here and has been going on
for twenty-seven centuries. Of
courses, in a stretch like that, one
builds a good many capitols. Salem
is a mere beginner with its second
or third or whatever it is.
Even at this distance an acute ear
can detect a slight murmur on the
horizon that probably represents an
active controversy going on In Ore
gon as to whether the new style is
appropriate for an Oregon capitol.
One can almost hear the acute out
cry of those to whom a capitol just
wouldn t look right unless it has an
old-fashioned dome. Also, how
about Carl Gould's idea that the
structure should express the well
Plang for County Show at Heppner
Should Not Interfere, Bel
anger Tells Lions.
Any plans for establishment of a
county-wide fair should not contem
plate doing away with the North
Morrow County fair, Joseph Belan
ger, county agent, told the Lions
club at its Monday luncheon. Bel
anger made a short report on the
fair at Irrigon last week end. The
exhibits and entertainment Were
generally good, with the crop exhib
its especially high in quality while
tne livestock exhibits were not up
to par, he said.
While the north end fair, held
alternately two years at Irrigon and
two years at Boardman, is open for
exhibits from all over the county-
and state and nation, too in effect
it has been purely a local show
drawing exhibits only from the Ir
rigon and Boardman projects, said
Belanger. This will probably re
main the case, but as such it is
wholly justified. It is not reasonable
to suppose that the people there
would or could bring all their ex
hibits to Heppner for showing.
If a general array of exhibits is
to be shown at the county fair in
Heppner, it would be more logical
to bring only the best from the
north end fair. In effect this is
what is being done in Umatilla
county in 4-H club fairs. Four
district fairs are held there from
which exhibits are taken to a county-wide
fair at Pendleton. The
smaller fairs help to stimulate in
terest in the larger, he said,
A discussion of the' possibility of
having the proposed ranger home
in thia district of the Umatilla Na
tional forest established in Hepp
ner gained favor of the club in be
half of bringing it here, and Presi
dent Ray P. Kinne appointed J. V.
Crawford, Earl W. Gordon and S.
E. Notson as a committee to act
President Kinne proposed a joint
meeting with the John Day Lions
club some time this fall as a de
sirable project and Secretary Frank
W. Turner was instructed to write
for an expression from that club.
News was received in Heppner
this week of the deaths of Mrs. Het

In Europe also there is a good
deal of difference of opinion about
the new architecture. In fact, the
two most spectacular personalities
in Europe hold diametrically oppo
site views. To Adolf Hitler the
whole idea is pure poison. That
kind of architecture is, to his mind,
deflntely anti-nazi. It Is Jewish; It
is communist; and If he could think
of anything worse it would be that,
too. Formerly, Germany was a
rather progressive center on the de
velopment of the new architecture.
From all over the world young ar
chitects flocked to the famous Bau
haus at Dessau where the new
ideas were taught in a rather nota
ble architectural school. Now the
Bauhaus has been wrecked, its stu
dents and professors scattered, this
kind of work no longer appears on
the pages of the Ilustrlerte Zeit
ung, and where the buildings exist
there is a tendency to disguise their
original style. Hitler wants build
ings in Germany to carry the older
German atmosphere, just as Carl
Gould wanted a little flavor of Sa
lem, Mass., to be carried on to pos
terity at Salem, Ore.
In Italy, quite the opposite, Mu
solinl dotes on the broad surfaces,
the ample glass, the simple lines,
the convenient arrangements. He
isn't building capitols; goodness
knows Italy has enough of them
already and enough of churches
and palaces and castles probably
too many. But wherever a new rail
road station is built, there you see
the half-acre windows and the
square roofs and terraces, the pure
and undeflled wallspaces, the mod
ern gadgets of bakelite and crom
ium steels, and the simple color
ing. The same is true of the hun
dreds of apartment houses that are
springing up around the 2,000 year
old cities of this teeming land where
new babies are swelling the popula
tion for a 400,000 increase each year.
The new buildings, not being cap

castles, do not appear on the easily
