Oj BK Up on Cheyenne mountain, half a mile above the Broadmoor hotel, near Colorado Springs, Colo., Spencer Penrose has built this beautiful Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun. On the backbone of America, it is as near as man can build to Will's celestial resting place. The picture seem-ingly shows Will Rogers In the heavens, smiling his approval of this memorial, which is now open and will be dedicated Sept. 4, 5 and 6. with a world-wid- e Will Rogers Memorial rodeo on the Broadmoor polo grounds. This Is the bronze bust of Rogers, made for the Shrine by JJ Davidson, noted sculptor wbo also recently was commissioned to make a similar bust of Rogers for the state of Oklahoma to be placed in the National Statuary hall in Washington, D. C. PROSPECTS FOR EGG AND POULTRY PRICES FAVOR POULTRYMEN Things are "looking up" for the poultryman. Prices farmers will receive for eggs this fall are expected to be about the same as they were last fall, says Carl Frischknacht, exten-sion poultryman. And egg prices next spring, he points out, are likely to be higher than they were in the first half of this year. This outlook for egg prices, Mr. Frlschknecht says, is based on the August poultry and egg situation report of the U. S. Bureau of Agri-cultural Economics. Though storage stocks of eggs are unusually large this year, the effect of these stocks on egg prices this fall is expected to be offset at least in part by higher purchasing power of consumers.
