Shepherd Lauds
Work of County
Planning Groups
The work of county planning com-1
mittees in helping shape a valuable
program for the agricultural adjust
ment administration in Oregon was
praised recently by John Shepherd
of Linn county, member of the state
AAA committee, in a talk over radio
station KOAC at Corvallis.
Shepherd, a well known diversi
fied farmer and prominent in farm
er organization work, spoke on
"Good Land Use Through the Farm
Program" in his radio appearance
the night of April 7.
"You are familiar with the agri
cultural planning conferences which
have been held in Oregon counties
the last several years," he said.
"Farmers such as you and I sat
around the conference table and
discussed good farming methods,
and talked about what our counties
needed in order to bring a better
rural income. Our major recommen
dations have been incorporated into
the AAA farm program. In other
words, when we cooperate with the
farm program, we're doing those
things which our own planning com
mittees have recommended."
Among conservation practices be
ing carried on in the Willamette val
ley under the farm program, with
"county planning committees as sup
porters," he listed reseeding of pas
ture, range, logged-off and burn'
land, greater use of green manure
crops on orchard and berry lands,
more use of lime, phosphate, gyp
sum and sulfur, increased planting
of alfalfa and red clover, and control
of noxious weeds,
The committeeman said that 45,000
Oregon farmers are cooperating in
conservation features of the farm
program, 20,000 of them living in the
Willamette valley.
Oregon Clubbers Lead
In Fair Livestock Show
Against the strongest competition
in the history of the Interstate Ju
nior Livestock show held at the San
Francisco World fair, Oregon club
members made a clean sweep of
blue ribbons in the Aberdeen-Angus
baby beef, took one blue ribbon in
Shorthorn classes, and were second
only to Texas exhibitors in the Here
ford classes.
Of the 23 club members from six
Oregon counties, 16 won one or more
prizes on their animals. These were
in competition with stock shipped
from nearly, every section of the
United States. Some 4000 head of
baby beeves, lambs, and hogs were
Taylor High of Klamath county
took highest honors among the Ore
gon exhibitors by winning first in
the Aberdeen-Angus class with a
baby beef weighing 650 to 800
pounds, and also took the breed
championship. Charles Kik of Uma
tilla county placed first; Stanley
Masten, Klamath county, second,
and Kenneth Bensel, Umatilla, third,
in the Aberdeen-Angus class with
steers weighing 805 to 950 pounds,
Charles Cheyne and Virgil Ratliff
of Klamath county took first and
second in the Aberdeen-Angue class
with steers weighing 955 to 1100
pounds. Bob Blickenstaff of Klam
ath countv was first in the low
weight Shorthorn class. Robert H,
King of Sherman county with two
animals placed second and fourth
in the Hereford 650 to 800 pound
Others who won ribbons in the
Hereford class were Clayton Char
ley, Jackson county; Marvin Well
man and George Poulos, Baker
county, and Joe Keller and Walter
Ritter, Klamath county. Other win
ners in the Aberdeen-Angus class
were Lawrence Ousterhout and Don
Pruett, Jackson county.
March was the first month in ex
actly one year during which non
resident motorists' permits exceeded
those issued during the correspond
ing month of the previous year,
Secretary of State Earl Snell an
nounced today. Permits for the year
to date are still slightly behind those
issued during the first three months
of 1928, but are expected to pass last
year's figure soon.

National Safety CountO
While the horn on an automobile
must be recognized as essential to
safety in driving, it is perhaps one
of the mosh misused pieces of equip
ment on the car, according to Sec
retary of State Earl Snell.
Excessive use of the horn has
long been known as an objectionable
habit, but it is not well known that
by using the horn unnecessarily a
driver might be creating an element
of needless danger.
There is an interesting mental re
action to be noted in connection
with the use of an automobile horn
in that when the horn is used the
driver seldom exhibits any ten
dency to reduce his driving speed.
He is far more likely to increase his
speed because in sounding the horn
he has indicated his intention to
keep going and he wants to make it
evident that the way had better be
made clear for him.
If, on the other hand, he refrains
from using the horn and places his
foot on the brake he is indicating
that he intends to reduce his speed,
or stop if necessary, until the danger
is past. It would appear obvious that
slowing down until the danger is
past represents a much more reas-
onable procedure than attempting
to blast danger out of the way by
sounding the horn.
Automobile horns have been mis
used by thoughtless drivers to such
an extent that there has been some
discussion of prohibiting them alto
gether, since too many drivers ap-
pear to believe that they can assure
their safety under all traffic condi
tions simply by making a loud noise.
It is reasoned by some that if horns
were eliminated the drivers would
utilize more practical precautions to
avoid trouble, but whether or not
that would be the result is somewhat
It seems that the most practical
solution to the problem presented by
the driver who uses his horn excess-
ively must come in the form of a
general understanding of his true
status. His actions too often symbol
ize the discourtesy which accounts
for much of the trouble and con
fusion in traffic.
Three Homemakers
