The oc-I casion was he eaterin,g upon] the 19th year of its ,life. For 181 years the lper ,has been a rag- I uar weelIy visitor in t he homes of most Cheney people. ! At times its appearance has i been at0h.ed rand welcomed, at others with sme i, ndifer- once. But whether one or the other, it has so far outridden ,the storms of adversity, feel- ing glad they were rm wo'se and rejoicing when fair weath- er broke upon it , snes beckoned onward. [ The Cheney Ghataqua is this i week setting a record from which time will be marked in Cheney far another year at least. The assembly opened on time last Saturday afternoon, the first meeting drawing a capacity crowd, and practical- ly all the sessions since hav, seen the big tent filled with interested and appreciative listeners.

Conservation News Soll Co,..s,-,,at,i,, "gl,t-it By Clarence A. Kelley SCS Technician Harry Eonshuk, Spangle, has reported the open drainage ditch installed n his farm last ,ear .h, as been working real good. So good in fact that Soil Conservation Service teeni- clans have staked anot'her 1400 lineal feet which Konshuk plans to construct this year. Kontshuk's problem was on a cropland soil having a real tight clay subsoil within 12-20, inches of the surface. Thel downward water movement I was real slow which created I wet mire slots in the field. By I the time these spots drained I the rest of the field was almost too dry to work Experimentally an open drainage ditch was constructed across the field last year in hopes to pluck up scene hteral water movemenL It worked to the extent that Konshuk was lame to farm the area s@oner I than ever before Konshuk stat- ed the problem isn't complete- ly solved but i,t has been les. sened considerably. The Agriculture Stabilization and Conservration Service, 301 Hutton Bldg., Spokane, will as- sst la,nd, owners and operators financially in, the development i of such projects. The ,basic cost-share rate for' open drain- age this year N 15 cen per r cUbc yard of constriction plus i 3 ,cents per yard for" spo 'bank spreading. Open drainages differ from sod waterways i that the ba- sic objective is to remove sb- surface water. A sod waterway is a pathway for surface run- oef. Ill ,--.. Washln0ton Bar Association QUIRKY BULL A country boys know that I you slmuld stay away from[ bulls. Even though Ferdinandt was gentle, some buffs are l fierce. [ How much information do farmers have to give to peo- ple who ork with their bulls, especially when the. bulls have quirks ? Lavmer Ford wanted to show 'his prize bull at the fair. He 'sked Olarles to groom his broil. Charles knew a lot about shaening horns, currying cots, arid making a bull lok pretty. In aet, he ,lad done this many times .for Farmer Frd 'Farmer Ford tld Charles that a Shw bull differs from most bulls; it is gentle. After the bull was ed Farmer Ford then asked Charles to lead the bull ba'ck to the pen. Alas, no one told Ciarles that this bull hated the gate and the pen. When back in his )en he would often wheel around and butt the gate As: so,n as Charles took ,him back the bull Wheeled on cue aad Charged the gate The bull lso gored Clarles, who sued Pard claiming he should have been warned about the bull's odd habits. ord said, "You can neer trust ,any bull -- show bull or not. Since the bull lind never hurt ,anybody else before, I saw no reason to warn Charles." The court nevertheless ruled for Charles; Ford 'had special knowledge of the bull's d,an gerous habits ami therefore had 'a legal duty t'o warn Charles. Whenever you hire s)meone to work on your place, you have a legN duy to give him a safe place to work ad to warn him .of hidden dangers or "traps." As for (>bvious dan- gers, :he is enpected to look out for himself. LETTERS... TO THE EDITOR U. S. CAPITAL DUBBED "DIST. OF CONFUSION" Dear Editor, Wasbingtn:, Rap. Clyde Hos- mer of California is advising his constitutents, in the lates: of his highly educational bul- letins from the nation's capital, is in the "District .of Confus- ion." As evidence, he cites a! long list of items, of whic:h! the following should be ade- quate to prove his point: "Conlgress has lowered in- come taxes in the name o,f giv- ing Americans more of their own money to spend. It is also raising taxes o,n their incomes in the name of Social Secur- ity. "The country is fighting a war in Vietnam and simultan eously repealing 'wartime' ex- cise taxes because we are not at war. "Our prosperity is the high- est in the nation's history and ue are embarking on a mas- sive anti-poverty campaign. "We face a "ong h, ot sum- me' of discontent and violence on the streets of our cities and a gigantic domast:c 'Peace Corps' is being formed. "The Administration wants to spend $3 bilIion for foreign aid in the name .of fried:ahip while Uncle Sam is badgered by ,over 100 nati'ons at the UN and 'Yankee Go Home' signs are posted on ive continents. "The Pentagon spends $150 billion a year for an Army, Navy and Air Puree and the US Arms Control and Disarma- ment Agency ctamors for total and complete dsarma,ment. LBJ cuts duty-free tourist allwan,ces to save $50 million in gold ,outflow and Governor Pat Brown of California seeks authority to spend almost hal that amount abroad on equip- ment for the State's Feather River Water Project. "In order to maintain a 'sounld dollar' we ,are no long- er minting them. "'Togetherness' and 'I,nter- dependence' with Communist countries is being urged ,at the State DeFartment while Russia expels our diplo,mats and we expel hers." The California Congressman says these examples (of which we have quoted only a few) "may seem coafusing to the average person, and the reas- on it seems corffusing }s be- cause it is." ut Mr. Hummer is no proph- Slaffman Needed flow al Moses Lake Job Corps Center Cohtmbi,a Basin project of- ficials in Elhrata stated today (June 10) that applications are being taken at the project headquarters in Ephrata far 34 staff positions at the recently announ,ced Colu, mbia Basin Job Corps Conservation Center at Lars:on Air Force Base.

"One point we want to em- ph,asize," Columbia Basin pro- je.ct personnel .officer Ed Arn- old of Ephrata stated today, "is that in spite of the relatively short time availa,ble to secure )ersonned for the camp, we are going to seek the best qual- ified ,staff we can get."

He assures us, in fact, th, at "there is n,o reason fr alarm or despair." If the thrust of our Government con- fuses us, then, as he says: "It confuses our enemies, too. They have no idea w,lat we are up to either. There,fore, they cam,ot p,cssibly devise countermeasures to thwart us." Which reminds us th,at a bill has been introduced in the Ohio legis, iature to require green tail lmps o.n all vehicles. Doubtless the same philosophy that there's nothing ahead to fear.
