There Were 72 Entries, and These Counties Won 11 Prizes

Iran Stowart. field representa- H;annchen springy barley, and E.
Jtlve for the Archerd Implement
company, reports that there Is an
t unusually fine exhibit of grain and
'email seeds at the state talr his
yfcar. There were eventytwo
entries in both these classes' which
iare representative of the main
grain and seed growing sections of
- the Willamette valley. The only
exhibits from eastern Oregon are
from Wasco and Malheur coun
ties. Marion and Polk counties
won eleven prizes out of the total
of Be venty-t wo entries,
j The keenest competition was In
the gra'y winter oat class, and
William Patty of Amity won first
, pn'se and sweepstakes over seven
-other entries ,-wkh a bushel which
tested '4 J. 1 '
The next keenest competition
was in the white winter wheat!
class. Sherman Seely of WUson
vlUe won first with a bushel of
Jenkins Club which, , tested .-.out
61. 9. ' Wiilllam'Patty"o'f Amity was
. second with a bithel of write win
der wheat which tested out 59.6.
Best for Valley .
, There is very little Jenkins
Club wheat grown in the Salem
vicinity, and it was interesting to
note that this variety is being
'used extensively as a winter wheaA
in Washington and Clackamas
counties. Professor Donald Hill,
judge of the wheat, classes, re-
' marked that Jenkins Club and
white winter wheat are probably
the two outstanding winter wheats
"which should be grown exclusive-
- ly on the well-drained soil of the
Willamette valley.
He mentioned that this is a
6 white wheat valley as contrasted
with the red wheat of Eastern Ore-
gon. . He further mentioned that
"be' has not observed any red wheat
which should be extensively grown
here in view of a price differen
. vital of several cento a bushel in
favor of the whHe wheat over the
red.' V
There were six exhibits of
Varner of Cornelius, Oregon,
first with a bushel of out-
won first with a
standing barley which tested 57.1.
Varner has been growing Hannch
en barley for about four years, and
he won the first prize and sweep
stakes at the state fair last year
as well as at the Pacific Interna
tional. The field from which his
exhibit was.' taken yielded 80
bushels to the acre. In the four,
years Varner has been growing
Hannchen barley he ' has learned
several practices which have en-:
a bled him t o increase his acre
yield1 from twenty-five bushels to
seventy to eighty bushels.
His first seeding was 60 to 80
pounds' to an acre' as contrasted
with his present seeding of "110
to 116 pounds to the acre. He ap
preciates the vaue of a. firm seed
bed which he packs down with a
corrugated roller because such a
seed bed causes the barley to
stool out. During' the past -two
.years he has counted as many as
thirty-e'x stocks to a single plant.
He plants his barley on fertile,
well' drained .soil, reasonably early
In the spring after the ground is
warm, that Invariably if there is
a good rain after the barley is up
that -It will stool out and make a
heavy yield.
Good for Marion
Hannchen barley unquestion
ably is destined to pay a most im
portant part as a spring grain for
Marion county, because, if proper
ly handled, it will yield more
pounds of grain per acre on the
average than ei'ther spring oats or
wheat, and furthermore It is fine
feed for hogs a well as dairy
John Kanffman of Woodburn,
Oregon, won first with white Six
Row winter barley. " He has been
growing this type of barley for
several years and finds that it of
fers great possibilities as a fall
sown grain to help clean up weedy
land because it ripens about the
first of July and can be harvested,
before the' weeds have gone to
seed. ' Moreover the winter ' bar
ley' provides early Jhog feed dur
ing the months of July and Aug-i
mst when feed Is scarce and high
On Kinney Wheat
Harvey Walker of Salem won
first on Kinney wheat with a bush
el which tested 63, and Roth
Bro3. (Earnest and Henry) won
second with a bushel of Kinney
which tested 62.6. The Kinney
wheat seems to do exceptionally
weir on the well drained soil of
Salem and Howell prairies, where
the humus and nitrogen contents
of soil ns high.
On the Clover
Ed Loop,' who is farming near
Perrydale, won first on red clover
this year. Loop had a wonderful
110 acre field of red clover which
was outstanding from a standpoint
of. size and color of seed. Henry
growing section of Central Howell,
won second in the red clover class,
prize for Alslke clover.
Pohn Kauffman, farming near
Jones Bros, of Gervals won first
St. Paul, won second with his ex
hibit of white clover. Kauffman,
as well as a number of St. Paul
farmers, has been growing white
clover for a number of years "and
find that it not only is a consist
ent and heavy yfelder of seed but
that it also furnishes wonderful
pasture for their dairy stock. They
grow an exceptionally fine quality
of white clover seed and in mak
ing ,a placing for ' Kauffman 's
White clover, the judge mentioned
that ft was A-l white clover seed
but that he would have to give a
second placing because It 'con
tained some mixture of Alsike
clover. ' J - " y t w . ' t -
Young Men Leal
h In checking over the entries for
Marion county, it was Interesting
to note that the majority of the
exhibits were made by young far
mers, and it is' encouraging to
know that these young farmers
are making a real attempt to pro
duce a high grade of the finest
quality of grain and small seeds
that is best adapted to Willamette
valley conditions.
These young farmers who are
specializing in seed growing will
open up a field that shows great
promise for them, and at the same
time they are making available a
local supply of seed gTaln whoch
will help In a large measure to
Increase' the per acre production

Western Paper Converting Company Has Added Some New
Machinery, Designed to Increase Its Output and Its Work

Money for Salem.
One of he big payrolls of Salem
is now that of the Western Paper
Converting company. Front and D
streets, ir it Is not the fourth in
dustrial payroll in Salem in size
now. It will likely be before long
with fhe paper mill first, the
Spaulding wood working plants
second, and the woolen mill third.
The annual paper mill Slogan
number of The Statesman of two
years ago had this item:
"A number of the men connect
ed with the Oregon Pulp and Pa
per company have organized the
Western Paper Converting com
pany, and this company is already
building a large plant on North
Front street, that will employ a
hundred or people from the
start, and eventually will employ
several hundred, in making paper
boxes and many other forms of
paper containers, including envel
opes, and also including the print
ing of these paper containers."
The plant has been in operation
for nearly two years. It has a
building 240 by 100 feet, of the
concrete factory type construction.
Only One In West
This is the only factory west of
the Mississippi making bonbon,
"bakery, artd all kinds of crimp
cups. Glassine bags 'are turned
out in'varfous styles. Food wrap
pers of all kinds are made. Ad
ding machine and cash register
rolls are turned out in great quan
tities. This factory furnishes Armour
& Co. Swift & Co. and many of
the independent packing plants
with all their printed meat wrap
pers. In short, this factory takes the
finished product from the paper
mill and finishes it further for
the use of the trade in various

part of the work is . Interesting,
with the operation of machines
that seem to do about everything
but think.
Growing Fast Now
A new Kidder three color ad
justable rotary press has Just been
installed and started to running.
It is the very latest of that make.
It will print 50,000 impressions
In eight hours, size 36 by 48
Inches. The press is running 16
hours a day now, the first week of
full operation. It will no doubt
run- 24 hours a day soon.
There is also a new very latest
type ruling machine, that rules
both sides of the paper both ways.
Many thousands of the school chil
dren of the coast states are using
this paper in penmanship exercises
and for making up examination
papers, etc. It is being sent to
the trade in large quantities.
There are pow 60 people em
ployed in the plant, besides the
sales force. The number'will con
stantly increase. The output has
been 10 cars of finished papers
a month on the average.' This
amount will grow fast now, with
a practical trebling of the facili
ties in the past year.
Manager Riches has recently re
turned from a trip of three weeks
over the wide trade territory of
the concern. He finds that the
prospects for the marketing of an
increased output of the plant are
bright now.
Practically all the money re
ceived from these products comes
from outside of Salem; most of it
This is a
factory that helps to keep Salem

(By Radio Contest Editor)
Time is fleeting. But three and
a half weeks remain in The Stat
esman's radio contest for boys and
This radio is on display at the
Statesman office and can be seen
vt any, time. Boys and girls in the
race s'houid realize how valuable
these prizes are and that they are
practically within reach to be
claimed for their very own or for
feited to more ogressrtve oppon
ents during the next few days, de
pending almost entirely on the su
preme effort put forth while the
special bonus of 25,000 free votes
is awarded, on each club of $7 on
To the hoy or girl who halts for
a moment if you slack up or
let your enthusiasm wane If you
overlook one opportunity to better
your chances to win, you are tak
ing the desperate risk of losing
the big prizes.
This radio contest is so big that
it should have the attention of the
brightest boys and girls in this ter
ritory. -Hereone stands to gain up
to $175 With' every active -candidate
guranteed 8 per cent on ev
ery dollar he or she turns in on
subscriptions. There are three ra
dios, three bicycles, two phono
graphs 20 prizes in all that
will be given to active boys and
' "Everyone Wins Something" Is
the slogan. It is safe to predict
that there will be very few boys
and girls in Salem territory be
tween now and October 22nd who
wall make up to $175 any other
. One couldn't imagine a finer
list of prizes for boys and girls.
But. this is a subscription getting
campaign. Subscriptions will win
and subscriptions do not come on
the wines of mornrng without ef
fort. The goal is too big, the ob
jective Is too important not to
make a supreme effort to produce
tne subscriptions while they count
for so many votes. Those who have

tions compared to the clubs and
