No men anywhere in the world known more about their specialites than some of the big men selected to discuss the important questions which they will handle at the Farmers and Home Makers' Week at the Oregon Agricultural college from Jan. 2 to 6.

Russell, leading prune authority in the world's prune center, Washougal, Washington; J. B. Neft, California's nut expert, Anahiem, Cal,; J. A. Churchill, state superintendent of schools; R. E. Ellington, assistant chief western dairy division, Salt Lake; W. E. Meyer, testing assocation specalist, Salt Lake; Capt. Paul Weyrauch, president Fruit Growers' Agency, Inc, Walla Walla; E. C. Schroeder, noted Holstein breeder, Moorehead, Minn,; Telmer Rablid, in charge of dairy farm investiagtions, Washington D. C. and miss Alice Ravenhill, noted English child specalist.

Miss Anna M. Turles, extension specialist in home economics, has the following to say: "I feel we should give special attention and urge that the women of the rural communities come to this conference. The men, perhaps do not need as much enouragement to get them away from home as the women do, so I want to add that you urge the women of your county to come for the week. All those interested please notify the county pathologist's office as arrangements are under way for chartering a special car."

LOCAL AND PERSONAL

  • Chief of Police Hittson has requested that drivers of cars exercise due precaution to avoid running down of pedestrians standing in the street waiting to board street cars. Several accidents have been narrowly averted arising from this matter.
  • Since Wilson has been re-elected, the cost of living has dropped. The Sugar Bowl will sell Xmas candy again at 12 cents a pound.
  • Three cars of machinery for the mill of the Applegate Lumber Co., have been unloaded and the remaining two cars are expected to arrive in Medford within a week. Lumber for the construction of the mill frame has arrived and work on the construction of the frame will begin Monday. Subscriptions to the mill stock are being paid rapidly with the arrival of the machinery seemingly having boosted confidence in the enterprise.
