Smith and Harvey Smith ranch, it would not surprise those familiar with the character of the herd they are gathering together and building up there. As head of the herd, they now have Prince Chimacum Cornucopia, whose dam carried 50 percent of the blood of Margie Newman, a world’s record milk producer, and herself scored 101.9 pounds in a test at 1 year and 11 months old.

John Breckenridge will leave Friday for Portland, where he is in his second year at the Northwest Dental College.
