THE NEED OF A "CENSUS
There Is a good deal of discus
sion as to why there should be an
agricultural census this year. C.
A. Cole assistant supervisor- of
the first Oregon district, sends to
the Oregon Statesman the follow
ing bulletin which Is certainly con
clusive: ; .
"We are frequently asked to giro
reasons why an agricultural census
Is desirable at this time. The fol
lowing statements from a letter by
the late secretary of agriculture,
Henry C. Wallace sets forth the
needs of such a census, i
An agricultural census will fee
of very great value for farmers,
but it will also be of great bene
fit ' to the industrial Interests as
well, particularly those connected
with the processing, manufacture,
and sale of agricultural products.
An agricultural census is neces
sary and Important for the follow
ing reasons: : f ' v -: ;'
First: The census of 1920 was
taken at a time when agriculture
was Tery much out of adjustment.
Much pasture land was in crops,
and some crops were much out of
line with the usual proportion
which existed before the war, and
which now exists. In 1919 In
some oft the northwestern states,
the abandonment of land seeded to
crops was very large. Thus; these
conditions make the 1920 census,
in these states. ,of little value for
use in succeeding years. ; ;
Second- The agricultural census-
was incomplete in some re
spects. Adverse weather condi
tions made it impossible to visit
some of the farms, especially in
the west where the enumerators

Third. The census report on
the number of acres of land In
farms, and In crops and the nam
ber of live stock on the farms con
stitute the basis upon which most
of the annual estimates of farm
production of the department of
agriculture is based.- For In
instance, if for a given state the
census showed three million acres
of wheat, the estimates of the de
partment - of agriculture, for the
following year would be made as a
percentage of increase or decrease
of the three million acres, as de
termined from the reports of crop
correspondents and other sources.
The estimates for. the second year
following the census for acreage
of wheat would be made as a per
centage of the increase or decrease
from the preceding year. If an
error occurred in the 1920 census
the 1925 census will now giye a
new basis to estimate from.
Fourth. The same is true of
lire stock. As changes In lire
stock, especially , sheep and hogs,
are likely to be sudden and ex
treme. It is Important that an ac
curate base - be had on which to
make estimates. During the last
two years marked Improvements
have been made in crop reporting
methods. With a 1925 census as
a basis, it will be possible to make
much mors accurate estimates
during the next five years than It
would be if the 1920: census were
used as a basia. - .

Fifth. A census of-manufactures
is taken every two years.
The capital invested in agriculture
is 7 5 per cent greater than that
Invested In manufactures, . but
heretofore the agricultural census
has been taken only every ten
years. The fact that agricultural
production is of such great im
portance makes it Important that
a census should be taken at least
every five years.
7 -Finally?" an'' agricultural census
will not only be of great value to
farmers and farmers' organizations
in the readjustment of agriculture
where " war conditions have seri
ously disturbed normal farming
conditions, but also will be of
material benefit to ' business in
