County Agent News . .
To the backyard gardener who
uses a three-gallon hand spray
outlit for 2.4-D as well as other
sprays, here's a timely sugges
tion from Rex Warren of Oregon
State college. 2,4-D is a persist
ent chemical and is tough to get
out of a spray outfit. In fact, it
takes more than rinsing with wa
ter to get rid of it.
Meanwhile, if traces of 2,4-D
are allowed to remain in the
sprayer, that's an invitation to
hard luck. Especially if the spray
equipment is used for other
spray materials. Those traces of
2.4-D that are allowed to remain
in the sprayer will do lots of
damage even if they appear in
small concentrations in other
purpose sprays.
So, Warren has come up with
a home-handy for ridding the
three-gallon garden-type spray
outfit of all traces of 24-D. Here
it is. Rinse the equipment thor
oughly with water immediately
after spraying is completed. Then
refill the sprayer with one-half
'Mother' Honored

The present congress is short
sighted when it looks west.
Appropriations for Oregon have
been and are being cut all out ol
proportion to federal cooperation
given other states. Further, it is
reneging on appropriating funds
that were earmarked for this
The devising of this irrational
and biased slashing program em
ulates from Atlantic coast and
lake state ndustrialists. They are
alarmed at our rapid industrial
growth in Oregon and foresee
rich markets slipping away from
them. They have put pressure on
their representatives in congress
and the result is one of the most
powerful blocs in congress.
The agriculture appropriation
committee consistently denies
forest road funds for Oregon,
when we are leading the nation
in lumber production and have
more standing timber than any
other state in the nation. Appro
priations for self-sustaining dam
projects are slashed to the point
of disablement when there is an
alarming power shortage and an
acute need for more irrigation
This when Oregon has more po
tential hydroelectric power than
any other state in the nation. The
latest slash affects Oregon's fish
ing and hunting, one of the prin
cipal assets of our $200,000,000-a-
year tourist income . A $162,000
intended for wildlife manage
ment was entirely eliminated.
National Red Cross officials
have arranged for a state meet
ing of leaders at the capital on
Monday and Tuesday, April 19
and 20 when problems of disaster
needs and preparedness in Ore
gon and related subjects will be
discussed. Prominent speakers
on the agenda include Major
General Thomas E. Rilea; Ray
mond Barrows, deputy manager
Red Cross in the west; Col. O. E
Walsh, district U. S. Engineer
Commander W. I. Swanston, U
S. Coast Guard; H. G. Maison
Supt. of State Police; Miss Janet
Jewett, state welfare commission
and Dr. H. M. Erickson, state
health officer. When planners of
the meeting were asked if pre
paredness for atom bombing was
the principal objective of th
meeting they answered that they
did not know if it would be taken
up to any considerable extent. It
was the principal topic of a re
cent national meeting, however,

Morrow County
Es M The (Cross Roads
Misunderstanding - Misinformation - Indifference-Dissatisfaction
Is Spreading Within Its Borders
Because of these Morrow County is
slowly pulling apart. The south portion
ot the county has become unmindtul of
the needsof the north portion.The north
portion has become dissatisfied and is
growing restless. A nanalysis of the sit
uation proves that the above named
factors are the underlying cause of the
dissention. Seceding, or the forming of
a new county is not the economical an
swer. Because of these a minority of the
taxpayers and voters defeated last
year's budget proposal. The direct re
sult was confusion, distrust and loss.
Because of these a badly needed
hospital project for Morrow County has
been retarded.
Because of these our road mainten
ance and construction program is in a
disorganized condition.
Because of these Morrow County's
position within the councils of the state
and nation has been weakened.
Because of these Morrow County's
educational and health programs could
be demoralized.
Because of these the budget to be
voted upon at the May election could be
lost. Prepared by nine conservative, fair
minded taxpayers, representing all sec
tions of the county, it represents the fin
ancial needs for the coming year, hon
estly, constructively compiled.
Beca'use of these a road levy of ten
mills over a five year period for the im
provement of our road system could be
defeated. This proposal was prepared
by a committee of five members, select
ed from representative sections of the
county and was approved at a large
gathering of taxpayers as serving the
best needs of the county.
Confidence, Unity and a Willing gncss To Share Morrow County's
Problems Must Be Restored
If we are to restore this confidence
we as taxpayers and citizens must cast
aside our defeatist attitudes and unite
in assuming a responsibility and renew
ed interest in county affairs. We must
elect and place in office those whom we
believe to be qualified and willing to as
sume a leadership that will fulfill our
earnest and reasonable desires.
As a candidate for the office of Mor
row County Judge at the May 21, 1948
Primary Election I sincerely believe I am
qualified to assume such a trust and
would endeavor to unite Morrow County
into a friendly, cooperative unit of gov
ernment. I would promise to serve the
needs of the county to the best of my ab
ility. No one could make a promise cov
ering greater possibilities and keep it.
I would urge you to go to the polls
and vote your convictions. A vote in my
favor would be greatly appreciated.
