Lack of Support From Federal
and State Funds Caused by
Congress Disagreement is
The government experiment station,
located at Hermlston for over 10
years, is to be discontinued June 30,
because of lack of funds, according
to orders from the federal govern
ment. The support for the station is from
federal and state funds, the federal
funds being derived from the western
Irrigation and experiment station
funds. These funds because of a dis
agreement among members of a con

the size of the appropriation, have de

stations must be closed, and the Her

that the request will be granted.
The station, which is under the
management of Harold K. Dean, has
done much to aid the farmers of the
county. Experiments are carried on
and new methods used. Umatilla
county farmers are expressing great
regret that the station is to be discon
