For ten years registered dairy type bulls have been brought in and bred to ordinary cows and today we have a very large number of very fine grade dairy cattle. The average farmer is touch more interested in a good producer of quantity and quality milk than he is in registration papers and the fair officials this year want to interest every progressive farmer in better dairy cattle. This is why a special class has been arranged for grade dairy cattle. There is also a classification for pure bred and registered dairy cattle. This should be of special interest to commercial producers of cattle and milk, and premiums will be given for purebred as well as grade cows, but no premiums are offered for grade bulls. Interest in the livestock exhibit is growing daily. One grower in this county says he will have twenty head of cattle on exhibit. Several will have entries in more than one classification. Fair officials are preparing to take care of more than 200 head of cattle and a hundred coops of poultry. With business conditions much better than last year, and better exhibits, premiums, amusements for this year's fair, a very much larger atendance is expected. All children under 13 years of age will be admitted free, all ex- hibilors will be given a pass, and all school children and teachers will be admuted free on Friday, September Hard Battle Ahead Bill Brasher Warns Assistant Coach Tells of El Dorado's Win Over Haynesville Attendance Grows Third Term Issue at Revival Meet Cloudin Nation?
