Leaguers Meet Again
DACKED by a strong record of
meritorious service the Jastern
Oregon Wheat league started grind
ing out a new year's program at the
anual conference in The Dalles to
day. Preliminary committee sessions
at which recommendations will be
taken from county reports for fu
ture action on the floor are the or
der today. While this part of the con
ference is not spectacular, it is high
ly important; for in the committee
rooms is expressed the sentiment of
the "grass roots" that will later be
coordinated in the conference res
olutions. Tuday's groundwork will be fol
lowed tomorrow and Saturday by
enlightening addresses delivered by
leaders in all fields affecting wheat
production. Thus will the final con
ference reports and recommenda
tions be based not only upon the
expressed desires of the growers
themselves, but these desires tem
pered with the best information ob
tainable from highest sources.
It is this policy followed through
the league's history that has made
the Eastern Oregon Wheat league
such an effective instrument for
united action. But the policy alone
would not have been sufficient. The
fact of the effectiveness is largely
attributable to the high type of lead
ership that the league has command
ed and developed.
It is to Morrow county's credit
that this year's sessions will be pre
sided over by one of her own sons.
Through the last year, George N.
Peck has dignified the league's pres
idency with the same high concepts
of service and unstinted loyalty that
have marked his predecessors in of
fice. Again, Morrow county may
feel a kinship to the league's veteran
secretary, Chas. W. Smith, who start
ed in that capacity at the league's
inception when serving as county
There is no need to say that the
league's destiny is in competent and
sympathetic hands. The record
speaks for itself. What should be
emphasized, however, is the need for
a personal and active interest of
every wheat grower in the league's
affairs. Not only should every grower
attend the conference sessions and
have his say, if at all possible, but
he should contribute the dollar
membership fee for another year.
The price is an investment and not

LOST CAMP GIVES DOCTOR LONG
TRAMP AND AN EARLY BREAKFAST
"I wasn't lost; the camp was,"
declared Dr. A. D. McMurdo in re
lating his hunting experiences of the
elk season just past before the Mon
day Lions luncheon.
The doctor went over on Cabje
creek in the Ukiah district early in
the season with his son Scott, F. B.
Nickerson and Owen Leathers.
Climbing back up the ridge from
the camp (they had a cozy cabin
belonging to Neil White), he sought
to find where the elk might be one
morning. He continued to hunt thru
the day separate from the rest of
the party, and as twilight settled
he decided to head for camp.
But where was camp, up or down
the creek? That he didn't remem
ber. He tried up the creek first, but
on coming to a barbed wire fence he
didn't remember having seen before,
he decided down was the right di
rection. He then went' down, a mile
or so and darkness had completely
set in. Again he decided he was
wrong, and turned back up the creek.
After going a short distance, he fired
a shot and was pleased to hear an
answering shot from above. That
