Entries for the eugenic section of the Oregon State Fair are pouring into the office of the superintendent. The most physically perfect baby from southern Oregon, from eastern Oregon, from the central development league country, from the Willamette Valley, and from the coast towns will be in evidence, and when the final scoring has been done Oregon will undoubtedly have maintained its reputation as the home of the most perfect type of child.
The eugenic building at the state fair has been so arranged that a full view of the examination rooms may be obtained both from the inside and from the outside, so that the interested people may watch the examination without crowding the babies and the physicians.
Governor Oswald West, who is known over the state as a great lover of children, will present to the winning babies the grand champion trophies and other prizes, the presentation to be made in the auditorium of the pavilion between 8:30 and 9 p.m. on Friday, October 3.
Lectures will be delivered at 2 o'clock each day on the subject of eugenics, the following well known eugenists having been asked to deliver addresses: President Kerr, Oregon Agricultural College; President Campbell, University of Oregon; Rev. L.R. Dyott, Rev. W.B. Hinson, Rev. Benjamin Young, Father E.V. O'Hara, Rabbi Jonah B. Wise and Professor Harry Beal Torrey of Reed College.
