Mystery feature and some grand
Grazing Men to
Apply March 5-6
Marvin Klemme, regional grazier
at Burns, and the directors of the
Morrow Grazing association will
meet at the county agent's office
Friday and Saturday, March 5 and
to hear appeals from action taken
on applications for grazing permits.
Out of thirty-four applications for
licenses, considered at the board
meeting February 18 and 19, four
were rejected and 13 were suspended
for further information. Each ap
plicant has been notified directly
from Burns of the action taken in
his particular case. At the March
and 6 meeting, the board will also
consider applications which had not
been submitted at the previous
meeting. Any stockman making an
application at -this time should bear
in mind that any action taken on a
new petition will necessarily be fin
al. It might be well, therefore, for
such late applicants to appear in
person before the board.
In addition to all of the govern
ment land lying within the boun
daries of the district, the grazing
association will have administrative
charge of all county lands.
Despite the fact that the district is
new, the board of directors has been
meeting with ready cooperation in
their administration of what, for the
first year, must necessarily be a
very difficult job. Farmers who
have been runnnig only small num
bers of livestock within the grazing
district have, on numerous occa
sions, expressed a fear that the graz
ing association would consolidate
the holdings of larger operators and
thus force the small operators out of
business. These men are beginning
to realize that such fears were
groundless and that the grazing as
sociation is the best protection a
small operator can have.
An Eight Mile force consisting of
nine men turned out Sunday after
noon with shovels and opened the
road leading from the highway tow
ard the Liberty neighborhood.
March 7th is the next regular
grange meeting. All members are
urged to attend. It is the last meet
