Secretary of Agriculture Char
les F. Brannan has announced that
no wheat "marketing quotas wi:i
be proclaimed for the 1950-51 mar
keting year. At the same time the
secretary announced,- pursuant tc
the provisions of the agricultural
adjustment act of 1938, a nations
'acreage allotment of 68,900,000
acres" for the 1950 crop of wheat.
"Wheat farmers are now tacf
to face with a natural post-war
problem," Brannan -started in makj
ing the allotment announcement
"The great expansion in United
States wheat production," induced
by the war and the usual post-wai
foreign rehabilitation needs have
continued 'at a time when market
outlets arfe showing signs of conj
traction. The indicated wheat prot
duction in 1949, even as adjusted
downward in the latest crop ,re
port, .would be our third largest,
exceeded tonly in 1947 and 1948.
It -will be our sixth consecutive
wheat croj in excess; of one bil
lion bushels against an average
domestic consumption of approxi
mately 700 million bushels." f
Brannan pointed out that th
United States has recently been
exporting over ten times 'as much
wheat as? we did before the wajr.
Even with expected exports sev
eral times true prewar level, much
adjustment is still needed. v
W. M. j Tate, chairman of the
Marion county ACA committee has
been notified that Marion county's
allotments is 13.530 j acres. The
wheat acreajge. allotment for Ore
gon is 944.891 acres and this allot
ment has been apportioned among
the counties.

Nut Growers
To Opse 1
The board of directors bf Nc-h-west
Nut Growers association has!
approved September 15 as closing1
date for 1949 walnut and filbert
grower membership -rolls, in, line
with earlier recommendations by
managers of local unit associations
according to John E. Tjunk, gen
eral manager. ' ' i .
No reopening of the rolls dur
ing the current or future harvest
seasons will take place, as has oc-.
curred in some previous years.
Trunk said.
Crop and marketing conditions
are such that the handling of the
harvest and packing with well
planned operations is of utmost im
portance. Trunk declared, and
these plans, once established, can-
nnt h fhanrff urithrui'tJ rratin
added problems which reflect on
all . members.
"The estimate of 10,680 tons of
filberts as the area production for
this year, is a 21 per cent increase
over the previous record crop of
8,800 tons in 1947, and is 66 per
cent greater than the. 1948 ton
nage," Trunk remarked. "While
the Oregon-Washington walnut
crop is estimated at 29 per cent
less than the bumper tonnage of
1948, the crop estimated for all
growing areas, if it materializes,
will bring-to market the largest
tonnage of walnuts ever produced.

Coast .Guard
159 Years Old
The "always ready" U.S. coast
guard will celebrate Thursday, its
159th birthday, climaxing a year
in which its forces rescued more
than 5.000 . persons from dange. 1
The coast guard, now at'ji
strength 01 ZJjDOO - men. was
founded Aug. 4, 1790. by Alex
ander Hamilton, secretary of the
treasury. Present commandant is
Adm. Joseph F. Farley.
In addition to rescue operations
to vessels and along coasts and
navigable streams, the . guard
maintains aids to navigation, ship
inspection, jce patrol, weather
vessels and enforcement Of feder
al laws on the high seas.

Tourist Travel
- of - State Drivers
and Oregon Cav es have showed a '
large increase in traffic over 1948
leads Robison to believe that the i
number of tourists visiting in the
entire state this year is greater '
than in 1948. v
Gas tax figures also show an j
increase over last year, but there j
is no way ' of determining how .
much of this gas was sold to re- '
sidents of the sjtate. ;
There are 102 stations in Xpe !
state where a continual count of !
passing cars- is tabulated Robison
said. .
Some of these stations operate
mechanically and individuals do
the rest manually. Surveys by in- j
dividuals separate resident cars j
from foreign cars! j
These surveys. Robison said, are
added to;' the three-week survey!
beginning next week and the net
results proviae an accurate esn-
mate of visitors to Oregon during .
the year. ;
Results of the threeTweek sur-j
vey probably will be tabulated a- j
