Delegates Register i was devoted loj arrival of delegates by special train j and automobile, assignment to tents and registration. A luncheon was j served at noon in the camp dining j hall. The campus offered a decidedly! military appearance with scores of, army tents erected to house the dele- j gates during the convention. The convention officially opened .it i 2 o'clock with demonstrations in re-i frig-oration, shoes, good growth and development, livestock and a special session for senior club members. All sections were well attended, and the demonstrations were based on activi-f ties of club members during the past year. I Select Sessions At 4 o'clock, each delegate was al- lowed to select and attend one of the following demonstrations: landscape! gardening, feeding and selecting dairvj calves, selection and care of sheep breeding stock, feeding fat hogs to-- market, turkey breedin Chief Roy Hillhouse, of the po- lice department, has been wearing a "badge of authority" in Wood- land and Yolo county for 20 con- secutive years. With the exception of R. W. Woods, county tax collector, he shares with Sheriff J. W. Monroe the distinction of having been a peace oficer for a longer period than any other Yo'.oan. He and Sheriff "Monroe begin- ning in 1911. when Sheriff Mon- roe was first elected to that of- fice and Chief Hillhouse became his deputy. Collector Woods has them shaded four years. He first becarre ?n officer as a deputy under Sheriff Sam Montgomery in years ago. Aftec his appointment in 1911 as deputy sheriff, Chief Hillhouse served in that capacity until 192-1, when he elected consta- ble. He continued, however, to ho'd his commission dur- ing his eight years' tenure of that during the per- iod when he was a candidate for sheriff against Sheriff Monroe. He has retained the commission since his election as police chief. It is evident that Yoloans be- lieve in experienced peace offi- cers, and that these officers are giving value received. Twenty years is rated as a long, long time to satisfactorily serve in an elective or appointive of- fice.
