SAYS VALLEY SHOULD
PRODUCE BUTTER, E6GS
Professor Thos. Shaw Tells Students
That Willamette Valley Should
Raise Hogs and Cattle.
Declaring that fanners in the Will
amette valley can produce butter 50
per cent cheaper than can be made in
New England, and that a pound of
pork can be raised for the market for
less than it can be raised in the corn
reprions of the middle west, Professor
Thomas Shaw, agricultural expert of
the Hill railroad system, told the Uni
versity^' tudents Thursday that Will
amette valley farmers are growing
the wrong kinds of crops.
The Willamette valley, he said, is
the one place in the United States
where sheep can be grown to equal
those of England. But instead of
raising sheep, pork and dairy cattle,
the farms of this district, he said, are
raising hay, which can not be cut, of
ten, because of rain.
He advocated the cause of dry farm
ing; declaring that the prreat barren
areas of eastern Oregon can by this
system be farmable, and, that, with
dry farming as is now being practiced
in Montana, 300,000,000 acres in 14
states that are now barren may be
made to raise enormous quantities of
wheat. By dry farming, he declared,
Montana has increased its wheat crop
from 250 carloads to 20,000 carloads.
Unless this land is pressed into this
use, the United States has reached its
limit in wheat production, he said.
The growing of sweet clover and
rape he advocated as profitable crops
for Oregon, in the production of
sheep, hogs and oattle.

First to Get Diplomas in Music

graduation program of the School of

The two who have successfully com
pleted the requirements for the de
gree are Miss Ruth Davis and Miss
Jessie Farris, both students in the
piano department. The number of
graduates from the music department
of the University has been small in
recent years, a period of several years

Both Miss Farris and Miss Davis

who will also assist with other songs.
REFERENDUM PETITIONS FILED

“The object of the league is to stop
all expenditures for building improve
ments until the voters pass on the
question of consolidating the Univer
sity and Agricultural Colleges.
Accuse Eugene Legislators.
“Many citizens contend that the
University is not properly located and
that some citizens and legislators of
Eugene use their influence against
good laws and in favor of vicious ones
in order to secure a big bunch of the
taxpayers’ money. This evil is great
and growing. The league may meet
this by presenting in the consolidation
measure a section prohibiting the leg
islature from making any appropria
tion for the college, University or nor
mal school, leaving the question en
tirely with the voters.
“The constructive initiative meas
ure is now being prepared. The real
friends of higher education are de
termined to take the three schools out
of cheap logrolling politics and put
them upon a higher plane where the
student will actually secure full value
for each dollar expended without ref
erence to the selfish interests of those
in favored locations.”
Test Day Law.
Certain it is now that the constitu
tionality of the Day law will be tested
and if Attorney General Crawford’s
construction of the law is correct, the
court will declare it unconstitutional.
An arrangement was made to test
the bill this evening when Secretary
of State Olcott rejected the petitions
asking that the dentistry bill be re
ferred. Those back of this movement
will bring mandamus proceedings to
compel the secretary to file the peti
tions and in defending the secretary.
Attorney General Crawford will con
tend that the Pay bill is unconstitu
tional. He gave it as his opinion that
the bill is unconstitutional and that
the courts will so hold.
