PAYS BUSINESS VISIT
This office enjoyed 'a pleasant call
from Bruce Dennis who was in the
county Friday on business in con
nection with properties he is inter
ested in. He stated that he had sold
his Boardman ranch to parties who
contemplate engaging in potato
raising on an extensive scale. Here
tofore hay has been the principal
crop on the place but Mr. Dennis
says it is more suitable to row crop
farming. He is satisfied that grain
is as well along in Morrow county
as in other counties visited recent,
ly and looks for a good yield this
year. Although not engaged in the
newspaper business for a number
of years, the smell of printer's ink
lures him into shops here and there
on his travels over territory seved
by the Safeway stores.
Remember the O. E. S. show Tues
day night at Star Theater.
i I No....
the question isn't silly.
Trees really do lay millions of eggs which have an important
economic bearing on the future of the United States.
A mature tree may create and distribute over the land anywhere
from a few thousand to half a million seeds in a single year. If given
an opportunity to develop, these seeds can produce almost anything
.... a new house .... a newspaper .... motor fuel .... or a
synthetic tire .... for wood is today one of the most versatile
servants of science. ' .
Since the variety of things which can be made from wood is
increasing so rapidly, it is our job to see that the trees in our woods
have an opportunity to "lay their eggs" and that they hatch into
mature trees for tomorrow.
We are on' the job.
