ONTARIO IS GOOD HOST
An event of much pleasure was the banquet and dance
given Thursday night in Ontario by the commercial club
and women’s club of the neighboring city. Guests were
members of the staff of the bureau of reclamation on the
Owyhee project and Nyssa business people. It was a return
engagement for the banquet given by N y s s a several
months ago and seemed even more delightful as two meet
ings make good friends of folk.
We enjoyed the hospitality of the Ontario people. Such
an event reflects the friendship and cooperation of good
neighbors. It is such effort that gave us the first federal
money for Owyhee and Vale irrigation projects and it is
such spirit that will make them an empire when the last
great task of colonization is completed.
Delightful repast, music, new and familiar faces—it was
a gala gathering. It would be pleasant to have more of

tabloids and found them missing. In their place was a col

—let’s cull it spring fever. He threatens to renounce for
ever the ‘‘insidious habit of wheezing and devote his at
tention to the barnyard golf championship.” He says the
ring of steel on steel when he “shoots a double” is worth
all the wise-cracks ever cracked.
The Digest is all that saved the day. Regardless of what
he “threatens,” when he finds a few of his tabloids in The
Digest, he agains goes back to patient and persistent mull-
