That corn may be successfully and
profitably grown in Oregon has been
demonstrated by the Oregon Agricul
tural College, and by many private
growers as well. The reports of the
Federal (ioverniiiciit show that tint only
cun more and better corn be grown in
Oregon than in the average state in
the I'nioii, but that corn prices are also
higher in Oregon. For the jcar 1913 1

ing a highway around a hill or grade
hut little appreciable distance is added
and thla I more than offset by tr.e re
duced attain of hauling.
The chief drawback from the farm
owner's point of view ia that the laying
out of roads on thla principle nf avoid
ing grade necessitate. In some case,
through good faim
land or orchard or pastures, instead
of going around the farm line and
building the road through old, worn
out field and over rocky knolls. This,
of course, must raise a question in the
minds of the individual land owner at
to whether the cutting up of his
property by a road yie'd him 'ndlvidual
udvai.tsge and s benefits his com
munity as to offset the use of such land
lur a ronci, or io overcome the con
venience of having his land divided.
In this connection the Ollice of Koada
point out that the running of a road
and the resulting tralt'ic through a good
farm, where there are good sheep,
cattle, horses, grain, fruit, or vegeta
bles, has a certain advertising value
and In many instance make the land
more valuable. In otner cases the im
portance of such a level road to the
community i so great that it might
well repay those using the road to give
the farmer the equivalent in land

sacrificed to the common welfare. At
