WORK OF NATIONAL FFA CONVENTION
AT KANSAS CITY TOLD BY CASEBEER
Over-Confident Locals Fail
to Click as Air Passage
Taken for Scores of "Birds"
Last Friday at Heppner an in
spired Arlington team walked over
the seemingly over-confident Mus
tangs, 18-0. From the moment the
starting whistle blew, all of the
Honkers' plays clicked wtih an un
canny precision, while everything
Heppner tried failed.
The Heppner team seemed unable
to cope with the brilliant passing
attack. Receiving the ball on their
own . 30-yard line, Arlington, on a
series of well executed plays', went
down to Heppner's 20-yard line,
from where a pass was thrown into
the end zone for a touchdown. The
ball was partially deflected by a
Heppner player into the arms of an
Arlington end who was lying on the
ground in pay dirt.
In the fourth quarter a long pass
from Heppner's 30-yard line netted
the second tally, with the man cross
ing the line standing up. In the last
8 seconds of play, Arlington made its
final score on another long pass. Ar
lington failed to convert any of their
The outstanding player of the
game was Baker of Arlington, who
did a fine job of passing, running,
and blocking. Wetherell also played
a good game on defense. For Hepp

offensive advances by their fast
Heppner's line play, tackling, and
blocking were decidedly not up to
former game standards. Vast im

Heppner didn't even threaten to
score in the first half, although Cox

yards on a pass which he intercept
ed on his own ten. Heppner reached
Arlington's 12 yard line in the last
quarter, but was held for downs.
Kenny made a nice interception of
an Arlington pass, almost getting
away in the third quarter. Heppner's
playing was marked with fumbles,
interceptions, and plays trapped be
hind the line of scrimmage.

became candidates for the Ameri

judged poultry, dairy, animal hus
bandry and milk. In addition to the
above members, 25 representatives
from the various state chapters at
tended. The group traveled through eleven
western states and one foreign coun
try, Mexico, covered 5000 miles and
traveled over the Union Pacific,
Rock Island, and Southern Pacific
railroads. The Oregon boys joined
the Utah, Wyoming, Nevada and
Washington groups at Green River,

ver and were treated to a banquet
and a sight-seeing tour of the city.
While in Kansas City they par
ticipated in the national convention
of over 8,000 boys from 47 states and
the Hawaiian islands. They entered
in the judging contests held at the
American Royal Livestock show and
went on a number of side trips in
and around Kansas City. After
four-day stay at Kansas City, they
returned over the southern route
through Kansas, Oklahoma, New
Mexico, Texas, Arizona and Califor

Paso, Texas, and one night in Los
Details of Convention
The convention was held in the
newly completed municipal audi
torium. The mayor of Kansas City wel
comed the Future Farmers at the
opening session Monday morning,
Oct. 18. Joe Black of Wyoming, na
tional president, made a short re
sponse. Other business at the sessions was
the selection of seventy-five Ameri
can Farmers from a group of one
hundred candidates. Each state is
allowed to submit a candidate for
the American Farmer degree for
each 1000 members or major frac
tion thereof. Oregon submitted two
boys for this honor.
Other important business trans
acted was the revising of the con
stitution, place of holding the next
convention, election of honorary
members, financing of delegates to
the convention, reading state re
ports, discussing the addition of an
other national honorary degree and
the election of national officers. One
of the interesting features of the
convention was the three hundred
piece band from Texas, Utah and
Missouri who made several com
bined appearances as well as in
dividual. One of the most outstanding
events was the national F. F. A.
public speaking contest. The win
ner was Jack Gunning of Wiscon
sin, representing the central region
and speaking on "First in Agricul
ture." He spoke before a group of
about 3000 Future Farmers.
According to the opinion of the
Oregon boys, the Pacific Interna
tional Livestock show at Portland
compared very favorably to the
American Royal. There were no
dairy cattle in the Kansas City show.
However, we saw a large exhibit of
fat beef cattle and breeding stock
as well as car load lots of fat stock
in the yards. We also saw a large
exhibit of Missouri mules.
A Newberg boy won third high in
judging all classes of dairy cattle,
the Amity boy was high in Holsteins
and the Corvallis boy fourth in milk
judging. The Oregon milk judging
team was fifth in this contest. Beck-

cultural agent of the Union Pacific,
it required 30 acres of range land
to maintain one beef animal.

Albert A. Steers, father of Mrs. Col

a number of years ago, since which
time it has been the source of much
local interest and a few months ago
was brought to the attention of the
University of Oregon department of
anthropology by Mrs. Lucy E. Rod
gers, county school superintendent.
The department requested that the
hole and its surroundings be left as
little disturbed as possible until such
time as it could make an investiga
tion, which was hoped for next year.
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Peterson were
