TWO INJURED IN AUTO
CRACK-UP FRIDAY NIGHT
a
Two occupants of a Ford V-8
demonstrator were injured last Sat­
urday night while returning from
Pendleton when the car left the road
above Stewart’s Service Station and
turned over in the ditch. Dwight
Mahoney, salesman, was driving at
the time and lost control of the car
when he went to sleep. Mildred
Phelps, another occupant of the car,
suffered a bruised face and lacerated
lip.
Mahoney received medical care at
the Hermiston General Hospital for
serious lacerations about the face,
but recovered sufficiently to be
taken to the home of his parents in
Pendleton Sunday.

Thanksgiving turkeys have been
moving out ot the Hermiston terri­
tory rapidly the past two weeks but
the movement slackened after Mon­
day and Tuesday, November 18th
and 19th, when the Eastern Oregon
Turkey Growers’ association held ita
first pool of the season. Birds going
through this pool registered 98 par
cent prime, out of a shipment of
3415 birds weighing 45,960 pound*.
Only ten commercial birds were re­
ceived through the pool and those
were sold to local trade.
The two car shipment left Tues­
day night for Los Angeles.
J. M. Cornutt of Riddle, Ore., act­
ed as official federal grader and
stated that the quality of birds being
marketed in this territory were
among the highest. “This is due
mainly,” he said, "because growers
are learning how to select market­
able birds and how to prepare them
for market to bring the highest
grade.”
Ideal weather prevailed during the
finishing period and killing of mar­
ketable turkeys. Seventy per cent of
the shipment through the pool were
hen turkeys, with the toms finish­
ing out for market a little later. The
December : pool will carry a great­
er per cent of toms, it is believed.
A crew of between 20 and 24 was
engaged for a day and a half to
handle the pool. Growers brought
their birds in to the pool according
to schedule arranged through Assist­
ant County Agent Sawyer’s office,
which enabled the crew to keep busy
during the working hours.
Birds bought by the Hermiston
Produce company were said to total
9,000 pound*, the majority of which
were prime birds. Other Independent
dealers also shipped birds.
