rent deliveries of wheat on De
cember contracts here were being
mored out of Chicago with un
usual dispatch, and that a sharp
reduction of the United States
visible supply total appeared im
minent, gave new xest to buyers,
and so , likewise did ' unexpected
firmness of wheat quotations at

the lake movement of Canadian
wheat would about come to an
end tonight. Increased.; demand,
for flour was an additional reason
given for the upward Bwing - of

Corn and oats derived most of
their strength from j wheat i and
from bullish estimates of domestic
corn production as compared with
estimates a month ago. Further
reports of rain in Argentina are
almost entirely ignored.
Provisions were lifted ,by th?
bulge in grain values.

wine ui iue cuiiq neaun Dureau,
Dr. D. R. Ross, Dr. W. B. Morse,
Dr. L. O. Clem mens, and Dr.
George, E." Lewis made, the examinations.
Most of the 63 children were
brought from the immediate vi
cinity of Salem although some of
them ; were from Marion. Hazel
Green, and several from districts
south of Salem. '
As a' whole, it is said, the Salem
babies compare favorably with
those of other Oregon districts.
However several cases of malnu
trition were discovered.
Many of the mothers were anx
ious to have their children ex
amined, and keen interest was
shown. It developed during the
clinic that mothers wanted to
have a competitive examination in
order- to discover the healthiest,
baby in the group. It is planned
that such an examination will be
held In the city soon. -
All the work that is being done
at the present time 1b paving the
way for Dr. Brown, who is to be
here to promote the county health
work. He will take the cards that
were made for the children ot the
clinic and follow up the cases that
need attention. 1
The doctors were busy, on ac
count of there being a scarcity of
help". The rooms were crowded all
morning, and some of the mothers
were used in assisting the doc
Many of the babies brought be
fore the clinic were in need of at
tention and some were suffering.
The clinic was held under the
direction ot Mrs. Lyda King, coun
ty health nurse.

WOODBURN, Dec. 11. t Spe
cial.) More than "200 ranchers
from the ; vicinity of j Woodburn
were in attendance at the Farm
ers Institute which convened in
the armory here this morning for
a, three day session. The institute
is being held under the auspices of
the Woodburn Communfty club in
cooperation with 1 the extension
services of the Oregon Agricultur
al college. jv v.., ,4': i ;
Today's program dealt with
dairying and poultry: falsing while
the home economic department of
the conferennce, largely . attended
by local women, todk up nutrition
problems and home economic .Ques
tions.' ;J . . ' , "r j '
H. E. Crosby, poultry specialist
for. the Btate college extension ser
vice opened the session with an
address on "Feeding for Egg Pro
duction." Mr. Crosby explained
the necessity of a balanced ratiol
for economical egg production. He
suggested a 400 egg laying flock
as an economical unit and recom
mended that such a flock be kept
or only enough hens to supply the
family requirements on the farm.
There is no other form of in
vestment in which money can be
lost so fast, unless it is in oil
stocks, .than in the poultry busi
ness improperly managed, he
said. "On the other hand there
is not other farm enterprise that
will make as much money than a
glock Of good laying hens properly
managed," he continued. L
Feeding and Management of
the Dairy Cow," was the subject
discussed by Prof P. M. Brandt,
head of the dairy department at
the state college, while the pro
gram also included a discussion
of the "Cost of Raising Pullets,"
Money isn't everything, of course
but it comes in, handy after the
grand jury has done its worst.
