FFA Elects; Trip to
State Meet Reported
By FFA Member
New FFA officers were elected at
a meeting held April 26, as follows:
President, Omer McCaleb; vice pres
ident, Howard Patton; secretary,
Dick Wilkinson; treasurer, Bill Blake;
reporter, Guy Moore; sergeant-at-arms,
Dean Gilman.
The boys attending the state con
vention at Corvallis started about
5:30 Thursday morning. They had
breakfast at The Dalles and were
held up for about 31 minutes on a
tunnel that was being repaired. They
arrived at Corvallis about 2:00 and
went to the agriculture building and
registered. Mr. Bennett had the 500th
ticket. We then took our beds to the
gym where we slept in army cots
which were donated by the army at
Salem. Howard Patton and Omer
McCaleb put on their demonstra
tion for the elimination contest at
3:00. We ate dinner at the M. U.
building and then attended a dele
gate meeting from 7:30 to 10:00. We
swam from 10:15 to 10:30 in the
men's gym. We then went to bed at
about 11:30.
We didn't get much sleep the first
night. We got up at 6:30 and had
breakfast at 7:15 in the M. U. build
ing, then attended officers' meetings
until noon. We had dinner at the
M. U. building at 12:15. Then some
of the students went on campus tours
but most of us rested and studied
on our demonstrations. We then at
tended a very exciting game between
Oregon State and Washington State.
The Washington State coach got mad
and kicked the water bucket over.
We then got ready for the banquet
at 7:15. This banquet was enjoyed
by everybody. The Oregon public
speaker from Scappoose was there
and gave his speech. The new state
officers were installed, the president
being from The Dalles. There were
several speeches and plays.
We then studied our demonstra
tion till 11:00 and went to bed. But
not to sleep. Some of our wits, or
would you say half-wits, had some
fun by putting hooks in our instruc
tor's bed, and finally ended up by
putting a bed over one of our boys,
We woke up at 6:00 and went, out of
town to get some sheep shears and
a sheep for Dick Wilkinson and Le-
land Edmondson to use in their dem
onstration. We then ate breakfast at
7:15. At eight o'clock we put on our
demonstration. Leland and Dick
won third in their demonstration of
wool and the shearing of sheep.
Howard Patton and Omer McCaleb
won first on their demonstration
of sharpening the plane. These lat
ter boys would have had a good
chance of winning a banner but they
left out the best part of their dem
onstration. Dick Wilkinson, Leland
Edmondson and Howard Patton,
forming out dairy judging team,
placed seventh in the state, with
Howard placing tenth high point
man. Some very good looking dairy
cattle were seen. We left Corvallis
at 3:30 and arrived at Heppner at
Although officials of the re-employment
service appeared before
the Board of Control six weeks ago
with a demand for immediate ap
proval of a lease on a new office
space in Portland to save them from
being thrown out into the street, the
deal is still pending. At that time
the re-employment service was
urging rental of a building at $850 a
month. Negotiations conducted by
the Board of Control reduced the
rental to $700. New conditions writ
ten into the lease by the bureau re
sulted in a stalemate. The Board of
Control this week reiterated its will
ingness to approve the lease on the
$700 basis but so far the bureau and
the building owner have been unable
to get together on an agreement.
Oregon Known as
Source of Supply
Of Crested Wheat
Eastern Oregon counties are be
coming known throughout all west
ern states as a source of crested
wheat grass seed, reports E. R. Jack
man, extension crops specialist at
Oregon State college.
Frequent inquiries are received
as to sources of this seed, and in re
sponse to these and other outlets,
Oregon growers have shipped seed
to nearly every state west of the
Mississippi river. All eastern Ore
gon counties produce some crested
wheat grass seed, but leading coun
ties in out-of-state shipments are
Union, Malheur and Gilliam, Jack
man reports.
Eastern Oregon has about 50,000
acres of crested wheat grass, most
of which is sown on wheat land re
tired from production for the time
being. Even so, every eastern Ore
gon county is expected to increase its
production in 1D38. Stockmen would
like to use this grass for improving
the carrying capacity of ranges, but
so far seedings on range lands have
not been as successful as on culti
vated land, Jackman point out. Sev
eral of the eastern Oregon county
agents are experimenting, however,
with plantings on sagebrush lands in
an effort to work out suitable seed
ing methods.
Among the methods being tried
are seeding in furrows, burning the
native wild grass and weeds and
seeding in the ashes, dragging a
railroad rail to kill weeds and brush
and seeding behind it, seeding broad
cast and covering with a brush drag,
pasturing the ground closely and
seeding on virtually bare ground,
and broadcasting and tramping in
by driving sheep across the seeded
area. To date, the furrow method
has given the best results on un
plowed lands.
Ernest Smith, in town Monday
from the Lexington farm, reported
his crop prospects very favorable.
