Initial production from the first plant to locate in the Port of Morrow industrial park is under way at the I. M. Docken Corporation’s alfalfa cubing mill, a $500,000 facility on ten acres of waterfront land a mile northeast of Boardman. Major work ahead is the construction of the underground conveyor belt from the mill to the waterfront. Much of the plant’s output will be shipped via barge, according to company officials. Docken says his firm has long-term contracts with Japanese, Korean and Hawaiian firms to supply them a total of 6,000 tons of high protein cubes per month. Principle ingredients of the cubes are alfalfa and grain to produce a fortified feed for cattle, horses and sheep.

About 40 people gathered for the Current Literature Club’s centennial program and social Friday in the Vert Auditorium. Current Literature started off as the Tourist Club, a group of armchair travelers who first covered foreign countries and then turned to literature. The club as it is known today organized in 1894, founded by Miss Margaret Guyer. The club met weekly at members’ homes, some arriving on horseback. “Life Without Literature Is Death” provided the club motto. The group was dedicated to learning, friendship, worthy living and service. Among community projects, club members helped establish the Umatilla County Library and worked as Red Cross volunteers. Today the club still pursues education, but the group is primarily social.
