Lampson, county agricultur ist, came up to the high school Thurs day morning and told the students about his trip to Dallas, Texas, some time ago. He was sent as a delegate from Washington to the National Corn Show. The exhibits of the thirty-three states represented were placed in one big building, those of the U. S. Depart ment of Agriculture in another. Mr. Lampson told about some of the things he saw—rainfall maps, samples of soil, soil analysis, scientific information as to how crops were grown, pictures of agriculutral scenes of various localities in the Union, models of good roads and road machinery, and estimates of the cost of constructing such roads. The fair was not only an exhibition of cereals, but there were art exhibits, musical entertainments, broncho-bust ing contests and amusements of a high class to be found in every good fair. There was also a boys' and girls' in dustrial contest. Our state is one of the leaders along this line. There are nearly 200 local students already entered in the contest for this fall, so Kennewick will stand in the foreground among cities in the state carrying on such work. Mr. Lampson told of his trip, the stops at the Kansas Agricultural Col lege, at Denver, Ft. Collins and Salt Lake City. He gave a fine description of the Mormon temple and the taber nacle at Salt Lake City. Farming is no longer looked down upon as an occupation. The field of office work is full and overflowing and the cry is "Back to the farm," and it is,a scientific farm to which we return. We are educating our farmers of today. That is one reason for the corn clubs and canning clubs and agricultural con tests for our school people. The high school students were re leased from school two days this week. Tuesday, the boys went out to work on the roads and the girls were excused from attendance. Friday was visiting day, when all the teachers spent the day visiting neighboring schools. The boys accomplished quite a little Tues day, if dirty faces, blistered hands and lame backs are any indication of work. We'll mention no names, but one of our worthy "boys" stubbed his toe quite frequently on the rocks and an other got his eyes filled so full of sand that he was compelled to suspend oper ations indefinitely. Mr. Twitmire, state inspector of schools, visited Kennewick the fore part of the week. He made an address to the high school assembly, and like EASTER SUNDAY will soon be here!
