The Astoria fire called to the'minda
of a'number of local citizens, former
residents of The Dalles, the big fire of
that city, which occurred some 20
years ago when 20 blocks of business
houses and residences were destroyed
"The fire started about 1 p. m.
says C. N. Clarke, who grew to man
hood in the Wasco capital. "By sun
down it had burned itself out, and such
a desolate sight I have never seen,
The flames were stopped at the edge of
the block in which our home was lo
"In those days every household in
The Dalles had a cow. The animals
wandered away to pasture on Columbia
lowlands in the day time. I was re
turning home at dusk the night of the
fire. I met the .herd coming in. 1
thought I would cut our cow out and
take her into the alley and milk her.
I shall never forget the confusion of
all of those cows as they sought their
familiar night time haunts that even-
ins: after the fire. Such a bawling I
never heard. I started back up the
street with our cow and all the drove
took after me, bawling at my heels, i
looked like a 20th century Pied Piper,
Pledges for Anti-Japanese Bill
Enough votes have been pledged by
members of the 1923 session of the
Oregon legislature to make certain the
passage of the American Legion's
Anti-Alien Land Law, which failed to
secure the required number of signa
tures to place it upon the ballot No
vember 7 due to lack of time to obtain
names, according to George R. Wilbur.
The carefully drawn bill, which in ef
fect prevents further acquisition of
agricultural lands of the state by any
person not a citizen and ineligible to
become a citizen, protects all present
ownerships and treaty rights. Lorn.
manner Wilbur says the Legion is in
earnest and wants Oregon to follow at
this late date, the lead of California
and Washington in such legislation.
Two legislatures have rejected this
legislation due, according to Legion
leaders, to a combination of ignorance
of the situation and purpose, politics,
and vicious selfish interest.

Leroy Childa, who returned last
week from a tour of the middle west,
says that the low price for apples this
season will have the natural effect of
causing growers in various parts of
the nation to grow lax in the fight
against disease and insect pests. As a
result, he says, it will mean the elim

Mr. Childs went to the middle west
primarily to attend the annual conven
tion of the American Pomological So

delivered an address on spray equip

eases. He says he finds that the
Northwestern lapple growers are far
ahead of growers of the middle west in
usinz un to date machinery.
The sesfiofi was attended by applo
growers and scientists from all parts
of the United States and Canada. Mr.
Childs says that some very fine apples
were exhibited from all points of the
east and south. Apple men from 'all
points, he says, expressed the opinion
that there is a greater need for cooper
ation among various national organiza
tions, in older that some markets may
not be ovflrgupplied, while other cen
ters go without apples.
Mr. Childs says he was particularly
interested in exhibits of Golden Deli

advertised the last few years. He

work is being accomplished in the de

Over 150 acres ar planted to breeding
orchards there, he says, the station

Notice to War Stamp Savers
"It is to be hoped that every person
who can do so will exchange War Sav
ings Stamps, soon to fall due, for
Treasury savings certificates," said
Postmaster T. A. Resvis. "The large
amount of money invested and the
great number of persona who pur
chased war savings stamps showed
that the people of this country could
save money wnen trie necessity arose.
Now, if they will take the money they
saved when they bought stamps to aid
the government in the prosecution of
the war and buy Treasury savings cer
ticates, they will demonstrate that the
thrift lessons of the war have not been
without effect. The holders of war
savings stamps have seen investments
of about $20.50 grow to $25 in five
years, and larger amounts in the same
proportion. They can see the same
thing repeated if they reinvest In
