He Declares That Income of Farms
Is Increasing While Costs
Oregon Agricultural College, Oct.
16.—Present indications point to a
rising tide in farming conditions all
over the United States, according
to A. B. Cordley, dean of the sehool
Although ten leading agricultural
colleges of the country report an
average decrease of 28 pef cent in
degree students in agriculture, Dean
Cordley sees no need for alarm over
the situation. The agricultural de
pression of the last two years, the
continued propaganda to the effect
that the farmer is the “under dog’’
have caused this condition, he be
“Farming conditions are surely
on the upward trend,’’ says Dean
Cordley. “The nation has passed
the low' point in agricultural de
pression and prices for farm prod
ucts are rising while the cost of
farm commodities is falliag. The
student who does not allow his fu
ture to be influenced too much by
present conditions is making a good
investment in common sense, be
cause agriculture is a basic industry
and in the long run it must be
profitable. We are approaching a
period of agricultural prosperity and
when it comes it will bring in
creased opportunities and demand
for trained leaders.’’
A statement made this week (by
Senator Arthur Capper, wheat belt
publisher and chief of the senate
farm bloc, corroborates Dean Cord
ley’s belief as to the upward ten
dency of agriculture. The income
of farmers this year will be a bil

Following the plan adopted five years ago, The Sentinel will this
year put on its sixth annual November subscription special. The
price of The Sentinel is *2.25 the year. Until November 30 we
will accept subscriptions paid in advance for a full year or more
In case subscription is in arrears, arrearages must be paid in

advance. Arrearages should be figured at 19c for each month in
If subscription is paid in advance, multiply 19c by the number
of months it will take to carry subscription to November of next
year, deduct 50c therefrom and the remainder will pay to next
If subscription expires during November of this year, *1.75
pays to November of next year.
These explanations show that subscribers get a saving of 50c
whether subscription is in arrears, paid to date or paid in advance.
If subscription expires in September, 1923, 38c will pay to
November; add *1.75 (total *2.13) and subscription will be
paid to November, 1924.
If subscription expires in October, 1923, 19c will pay to
