One of the greatest benefits of the
land products division of the Manu
facturers' and Land Products show,
which opens this week at the Armory,
will be the Impetus It gives toward
decided city people to make their
homes and living on the soil, accord
ing to C. C. Chapman of the Portland
Commercial association.
With millions of acres of tillable
land available in all sections of the
state, he says, Oregon people who
come searching for a living and a
home in the city are overlooking op
portunities, vast and plentiful in the

Xand Xs Calling' Them.
"There are 25,000 people in Portland
today," he said, "who should not be
here. They should bo making homes
in the country, where they would grow
Independent, and have children grow
up in wholesome surroundings. Those
people are not our near successes or
failures. They are the sturdy, stick
on-the-job kfnd of people. As for our
failures they will and should stay in
the city. They are part of the burden
which large communities carry.
At the show, people will be able
to see the state at a glance. There
will be exhibits from every section
and corner of the commonwealth-
Wheat from the eastern part of Ore
gon, berries from the valleys of the
western slope, grasses and fruits from
the orchard districts, and men from the
several sections on hand to tell of
local conditions and explain how re
sults are brought about.
A definite movement shapes itself
slowly and results also are not ar
rived at in a minute. That is why
the Land Products show cannot be
figured on a basis of immediate re
turns. .
.Will Point way.
"Its sole purpose will be to help
point the way to the land for many
people who need such sign posts to
guide them toward Independence.
The country does not need nor is it
looking for inexperienced city bred
folks to farm it. Such people don't know
the first rules about the wonderful
industry and for this reason they would
fail. But there are others 25,000 of
them in Portland alone who hav the
ability to operate farms, and many of
them do not know how to buy or
where, for the reason that the op
portunity to study conditions have
not been afforded them. For them
the land products display will go far
toward giving them the needed op
portunity. "In the heart of virtually every man
Is a conscious or unconscious longing
to live near nature. The fact that
life In cities is highly tinctured with
artificiality has been uttered so otten
that the statement is a platitude. But
it is true, and also it is true that the
stress and strain of such life irri
tates many who, not knowing that
they really desire country life, cling
to the smoky towns and little jobs
instead of looking for the one they
are fitted for and ought to fill.
Great Cnanca Awaits.
"Oregon has 4,000,000 acres of land
available for farming,
"The second third Is covered with
merchantable timber and ultimately a 1
large part of it will be requisitioned ;
for home and small ranches. The re- ;
malnder consists of cut over lands and .
brush lands and other privately owned 1
property which is lying idle. And all j
of the 20.000,000 acres is evenly dls- j
tributed throughout Oregon. I
"The man who Is looking for a par- j
ticularly kind of farming land, in
short, will not have to look far. Land j
beckons from every hand.

wonderfully productive inland empire j
the granary of the west. Wheat, I
oats and barley flourishes. And in ,
this regard I might add that there j
will be displayed at the show samples !
of what kind of wheat grows on the
'homestead lands," at an altitude of ,
5000 feet. It has been said that wheat
will not grow on these lands where the
rainfall averages only f rom , 8 . to 10
inches per year. And yet from 12 to
18 bushels of wheat is harvested to
the acre.
Many Varieties Shown.
H"he coast will be represented by
exhibits of berries, and root crops,
ganging from potatoes to beets, gar
den truck and grasses among other
things. Willamette valley squash will
vie with Columbia river watermelons,
and the fruits, prunes and hops of the
western portion of the state will rival
for admiration the big apples of Hood
River and of southern Oregon.
"Dry farmers and those from the ir
rigated districts will show how the
lands once characterized as desert
make them wealthy.
"But through it all, those who are
not fit to take on the burden of de
veloping rural Oregon, will not be en
couraged to attempt it. That is ex
actly what the products show is not
for. '
"A man will not be told that he can
make a fortune homesteading. Instead
men from the homestead districts will
show him what can be accomplished.
and then will be told that he should
not attempt to homestead unless he
has money enough to tide him over
three years. It takes three years to
subdue homestead lands in certain sec
tions of the state. After they are once
subdued the reward is there but the
reward comes only when the proper
kind of man and the right kind of soil
get together and work together And
the right kind of man is not the fel
low who thinks that farming consists
of planting seed then resting easy
until th harvest. That kind of man
will fail. The kind we want the land
product show to attract and guide is
he who is willing to work, who is will
ing to pass by his vacation, and who
has the patience to wait until finally
ho wins home, wholesome surround
ings, health and independence."
