To Make Payments
The finance committee of the
Heppner Rodeo association is anx
ious to clean up the year's business.
Under the guarantor plan adopted
for the 1939 Rodeo, a small deficit
occurred. A large number of the
guarantors responded promptly and
it was expected that all payments
would be in the hands of the finance
committee shortly. Those who have
not paid up are urged to do so at
once as the committee is faced with
the necessity of winding up the

N. Dakota County
Wins AAA Wheat
Compliance Race
Benson county, North Dakota,
with a near perfect record of com
pliance, was declared winner of the
Eastern Oregon Wheat League's na
tional AAA wheat program contest
at the twelfth annual convention of
the league in Condon.
As a result of the victory, John
Conway, chairman of the agricultur
al conservation committee in the
north central county of North Da
kota, returned home this week car
rying the trophy presented Friday
by the league. In addition to re
ceiving the trophy a large glass
globe filled with Oregon wheat and
mounted on a myrtle wood base
the Dakota representative also re
ceived a free trip to the wheat lea
gue's convention.
Interest was keen throughout
wheat growing states of the nation,
according to H. D. Proudfoot, pres
ident of the league, and a number
of counties nudged Benson county
closely in the final judging. Baker
county, winner in Oregon, made an
excellent showing in its record of
compliance with the federal farm
program, he said.
The North Dakota county received
a statistical rating of 98.2 per cent
in degree of compliance, indicating
that relatively few acres were not
being farmed in accordance with the
national plan. All farms in the
county were signed up under the
agricultural adjustment program.
Purpose of the contest, Proudfoot
said, was to focus attention on the
need for avoiding large surpluses
of wheat," and recognize counties
which are showing best cooperation.
In 1939, Benson county farmers had
reduced wheat production by 83,000
acres and had planted 15,000 acres
of this amount into permanent grass.
Winning counties in 23 states par
ticipating in the contest each receiv
ed an Oregon juniper wood plaque.
Representatives of a dozen states
were present to receive these in
person. The list of winning coun
ties follows:
California, Butte county; Idaho,
Latah county; Kansas, Greeley

New Mexico, Harding county; North
