Never, say the clerks, have they

Even with regular college in
session. T5 hundred students nev
er equaled a day's business of
4-H summer school. And. the
4-H enrollment? Just one-fourth
the regular number of college
students. The ice cream clerks
say that if the ice cream eaten
during the ten days of 4-H sum
mer sehooi were divided between
the 1.7-13 hoys and girls attend

get a half gallon apiece.
With so many 4-H club activ

the happenings of all. Four-H
club delegates to summer school
returned from Oregon State col

Advances in Americas naval ships and equipment have been marked
throughout the century and a half of the Navy Department's history by
important milestones of progress. One of these was the first flight from
the deck of a ship, made in 1910 by Lt, Eugene Ely, when he took off
from a miniature flight deck on the foredeck of the I SS Birmingham
(upper). Three years later naval aviation had its actual start when
Admiral George Dewey signed the report of the General Board, which
recommnded the establishment of a Naval air arm. Today aviation is
one of the elements in the three-pronged American Navy. Flowering
of 'avy Air" can be symbolized in such scenes as the lower photo
in which an FJ-1 "Fury," a jet-propelled Navy fighter, makes a landing
aboard the CSS Boxer while the ship cruises off the California coast.

Bend Proves Fine
Host to Newsmen
Publishers of the stale meeting
in Bend July 2 and 3 were unan
imous in their praise for the fine
entertainment and warm hospit
ality provided by the central Ore
gon city. And all were greatly
indebted to the Bend Bulletin and
its fine staff for the manner in
which the welfare of the guests
was their first concern.
Bend was chosen by the news
papermen because of its central
location, fine facilities for enter
taining conventions, and above
all, because of the water pageant
which is the highlight of the
city's annual Fourth of July cel
ebration. Nothing comparable to
the water pageant is to be found
elsewhere on this continent, and
as the announcer proclaimed, ev
en on the globe, so the newspa
per folk were especially favored
in being invited to meet in Bend
at that particular time.
The convention marked the
close of the writer's term as pres
ident of the association, turning
the reins over to Frank Jenkins,
publisher of the Klamath Falls
Herald and News.
As an anti-climax to the close
of the convention. Bend suffered
one of the worst fires in recent
years with the burning, Sunday
night, of the Eddie Williamson
garage. Located just across the
street from the Pilot Butte Inn,
there was more than the usual
nervousness on trie part of fire
men, police and the public until
it was known the blaze was un
der control. A wind from the
south diverted the sparks from
the hotel but menanced other
property in the neighborhood.

INDECENCY LAW INVALIDATED
Back in 1864 pioneer legislators
enacted a law prohibiting publl
catioas devated to "crime or lust
or deeds of bloodshed." The U.
S. Supreme Court recently ruled
on a case comparable to the Ore
gon law and found it unconstitu
tional. "It is clear," says Attorney
General George Neuner, "that our
law is in many sections similar
to the New York law which the
high court ruled invalid." The
Oregon law prohibited publica
tion of books, articles, pictures,
or showing of plays that "relate
the criminal exploits of any des
perate or convicted felon."
A surprise birthday party was
