JUNIOR PLAY SELECTED
The play chosen to be presented
by this year's junior class is a three
act comedy farce, "Melodrama in
Nankipoo." It is to be given March
18, at the high school gym-auditorium.
The following cast has been
selected: Marjorie Landis, Mary Jane
Casteel; Mr. Landis, Robert Scriv
ner; Mrs. Landis, Bethal Blake; Aunt
Mary, Juanita Phelps; Helen Ste
vens, Sibyl Howell; Jimmie Barlow,
Bill Barratt; Jack Dixon, John Craw
ford; Horace Bilgewater Dilling
ham, Omer McCaleb; Miss Kelly,
Frances McCarty; Von Blagden, Joe
Aiken; Burke, Leland Edmondson.
The action of the play revolves
around a group of small town peo
ple trying to battle their way to the
glamorous motion picture metrop
olis Hollywood. Horace Bilgewater
Dillingham, a local "genius," writes
a "melodramatic masterpiece" in
which he employs the age old mort
gage theme with Simon Legree, Lit
tle Nell, and all the over-acting, vil
lainous gloating, and other laugh
provoking characteristics so remin
iscent of by-gone days and by-gone
With the people of the town as
actors, Horace's play is to be pre
sented before a famous motion pic
ture director who is to decide on
their ability to act. However, two or
three of the characters, very much
annoyed at the way events are
transpiring, plot secretly to change
the play around so as to make it ap
pear as ludicrous as possible.
Farmers to Plan Future
In County Conferences
Not what Oregon farmers can
grow nor even what they would like
to grow, but rather what can be
grown and sold at a profit now and
in the future will be given detailed
study at a forthcoming series of 36
county agricultural economic con
ferences, starting the last week in
January and continuing to early in
As a result of similar conferences
held over the past 15 years, many
changes have been made in Oregon
agriculture which were planned in
advance to meet changing conditions.
A review of past findings in the light
f recent developments and improved
farm home life in future agricultural
development are objectives sought in
the new series of conferences, ac
cording to farm leaders and 0. S. C.
extension men in charge of advance
"With some curtailment of some
of our crops apparently in the off
ing, Oregon producers are faced with
the question of what to grow in or
der to maintain and continue to in
crease the state's agricultural in
come," says F. L. Ballard, vice-director
of extension, in commenting
on the value of such conferences.
"Oregon is a relatively new state in
many phases of its agriculture. The
last 15 years have seen a tremendous
adjustment in production in Oregon.
"We have seen the small seed bus
iness approach a four million dollar
volume. Here we have no surplus
crop, and one which will stand long
shipment because of its concentrated
form. We have seen the turkey bus
iness grow to approximately one
million birds annually, in competi
tion with all the turkey states there
are. We have seen apples drop from
70,000 acres of trees down to 20,000,
and pears increase from 10,000 to
25,000 acres at the same time.
"In every county of the state, far
mers themselves, in cooperation with
the extension service, will give these
and other adjustments review in the
light of new conditions."
January conferences are: Linn,
January 24; Josephine, January 25;
Jackson and Marion, January 26;
Douglas and Washington, January
27; Coos and Yamhill, January 28;
Clackamas and Curry, January 29.

WHEN COLDS BRING
The speed with which Bayer tab
lets act in relieving the distressing
symptoms of colds and accompany
ing sore throat is utterly amazing
. . . and the treatment is simple
and pleasant. This is all you do.
Crush and dissolve three genuine
Bayer Aspirin tablets in one-third
glass of water. Then gargle with
this mixture twice, holding your
head well back.
This medicinal gargle will act
almost like a local anesthetic on
the sore, irritated membrane of
your throat. Pain eases promptly;
rawness is relieved.
You will say it is remarkable.
And the few cents it costs effects
a big saving over expensive "throat
gargles" and strong medicines.
And when you buy, see that you
get genuine BAYER ASPIRIN.
