Wool Wheat Show
4-H Clubbers Will
Make Good Showing
With Fair at Rodeo
With the wool and grain shows
plus the 4-H club exhibits, the Mor
row county fair, held in conjunction
with the Rodeo, promises to be not
only the largest but the best show
ing since the abandonment of the
old county fair some years ago.
An outstanding feature of this
show will be the 4-H club sheep ex
hibits. Prof. O. M. Nelson, Oregon
State college, has agreed to judge
the sheep on Thursday, the 26th.
Professor Nelson is an outstanding
man on the Pacific coast as a sheep
judge and goes from the Morrow
county fair to the big Canadian show
at Vancouver, B. C. The marked
improvement shown in the sheep
exhibits last year over the year be
fore so impressed him that he ex
pressed the wish to judge our show
again if he could arrange it on his
schedule. While there will be an ex
cellent showing of blackface sheep,
the outstanding feature of the sheep
show will be the line-up of fine
wools. The competition between De
laines and Rambouillets should be
of interest to every sheep man in
the county. For the last two years,
Morrow county 4-H club members
have won all premiums at the state
fair in the 4-H fine wool classes.
With the quality of exhibits fur
ther improved this year, 4-H club
members are bent on making a third
clean sweep at the Salem show.
In the dairy department, nearly
twice as many animals are lined up
as were exhibited last year.,
Every sheep man in the county
will be interested in looking over the
wool show. Last year fleeces from
this show won first and second in
their classes at the Pacific Interna
tional. There is every reason to be
lieve that the wool show here at the
Morrow county fair this year will be
as fine as any in Oregon outside of
the big show at the Pacific Interna
tional. With Morrow county standing out
as an important wheat producing
section, our grain show should be
good. D. E. Stephens, director of the
experiment station at Moro, will be
the grain judge. Samples of grain
for this show should be a full bushel
of wheat. These samples can be
tagged with the name of the ex
hibitor and the variety of wheat and
left at any of the warehouses in the
county where they will be picked
up for the show. After the fair they
again become the property of the
owner. First and second prize win
ning exhibits will be cleaned up and
taken to the Pacific International.
It is planned this year to show field

DAVID OLIVER JUSTUS
David Oliver Justus was born to
James H. and Nancy (Bennett) Jus
tus in St. Clair county, Missouri,
July 22, 1863. His father was a na
tive of Illinois and his mother a na
tive of Knoxville, Tenn. His early
days were spent in Missouri, and he
married Miss Margaret Devin of
Boliver, that state, July 30, 1882. He
first came to Morrow county 46
years ago, making the trip out from
Missouri with his brother-in-law,
the late S. P. Devin.
Mr. Justus first found employ
ment on the James Jones ranch
near Lexington, working there and
on the Jones ranch just above Hepp
ner, now the Frank Monahan place,
for two or three years before locat
ing on the present ranch on Hinton
creek, the original part of which he
took up as a donation land claim.
Following stock and sheep raising
continuously since that time, and
for the last several years assisted by
his sons, Nels and Ralph, highland
holdings were largely increased to
include a large tract just above the
forks of Willow creek.
For many years an additional res
idence was established in town
where Mrs. Justus and .the boys
stayed through the winter while the
boys attended the local schools. Mr.'
Justus found time from his large
ranch operations to take an active
interest in fraternal work, and at
time of death was a trustee of the
Odd Fellows lodge. He was also af
filiated with Knights of Pythias,
Masons, Elks, Rebeccas, Order of
Eastern Star and Ancient Order of
United Woodmen. Of progressive na
ture in both private and public af
fairs, he lended his support to bet
terment of the community, and while
never himself seeking public office
he was at all times interested in
He was a highly respected citizen
whose loss is keenly felt by the en
tire community which extends its
sympathy to the bereft family.
Mr. Justus was the last member
of his immediate family. Surviving
are the widow, two sons, and one
daughter-in-law, Huldah Justus.
Born, to Mr. and Mrs. Robert V.

Camp Heppner Rated
Second in District
In accordance with the policy es
tablished by Capt. B. A. Johnson of
awarding a gold flag with letter "S"
to the superior camp, in all depart
ments, of the Pendleton sub-district,
Vaucouver Barracks CCC district,
and a blue flag with letter 'T' for
the camp showing the greatest
amount of physical improvements
each month, Camp Heppner won the
blue flag for the month of July and
was runner-up to Camp Squaw
Creek for the gold flag, losing out
by only two points. The losses were
on administrative deficiencies and
lost time injuries. With a little ef
fort, care and watchfulness the above
items can be reduced to a minimum
and this camp will be the superior
camp. Anent the honor Capt. W.
R. Reynolds, camp commandant,
"At this time I wish to give all
credit for winning the blue flag to
Assistant Leader Sylvio Roberts and
his 'landscapers' because it was due
to their efforts that Camp Heppner
won this flag. If all members of
this company will cooperate to re
move weeds along paths, put papers
in trash cans, keep bunks and lock
ers neat and tidy, Camp Heppner
can't help but fly both flags. The of
fice force has agreed to do its part
and with the spirit of the three mus
keteers, 'one for all and all for one.'
this company will rise to its rightful
position in both district and sub-district."
