New opportunities
Research progress
noted by P. P. & L
Research progress in areas of
agricultural economics that open
doors to new opportunites for ex
pansion of Central Oregon's live
stock industry and also foster the
growth of a manufacturing Indus
try are among the highlights
of the work of Pacific Power &
Light Company during the past
The research Involved the pub
lication of a study which Pacific
Power undertook on the econom
ics of pelleted livestock feed and
a related study of the potential
for Increasing the region's live
stock feed supplies by utilizing the
chaff of wheat and other grains
that are now going to waste.
A direct benefit to a Central
Oregon Industrial enterprise, the
thriving Foster Manufacturing
Company of Madras, has come
about because of the interest
stimulated among cattlemen and
wheat ranchers in using the Mad
ras company's equipment. It is
built especially for gathering the
chaff which is usually blown onto
the ground during the wheat har
vesting season.
Manager Cites Potential
In a review of the progress of
Pacific Power during the past
year, R, G, McFarland, Central
Oregon district manager for
PP&L, said the extensive re
search report Issued by the com
pany a industrial Development
Department was among the ac
complishments of the year.
"Pelleting of livestock feed and
utilization of the more than a mil
lion tons of the wheat chaff avail
able In the Northwest offer a pro
fitable area of agricultural
growth." McFarland noted,
"principally because of the rapid
ly growing market for beef in the
growing West Coast states."
"Central Oregon is In the mid
dle of this market so far as the
feed, transport and other econom
ic factors are involved," McFar
land added for emphasis.
Area Ranches Add Data
McFarland reported a number
of Central Oregon cattle and
wheat ranchers had contributed
significant information, particu
larly on pellet feeding, to the sub
ject. He said the brochure alrea
dy has attracted national recog
nition to tho company's agricul
tural specialists for their work.
"And as a result of the atten
Serving Crook, Deschutes, Grant & Jefferson Counties
tion given the subject of feeding of
wheat chaff as a supplement and
roughage for winter - feeding
steers, the Madras company has
received many inquiries for their
equipment," he added. "The pub
licity focused on this Central Ore
gon company is particularly
pleasing to those of us who work
for the progress of the commun
ities our company serves," he
More Resources Avallsblo
During the past year Pacific
Power also completed a merger
with California Oregon Powar
Company, which will result in the
two hydroelectric systems being
integrated and increasing the
power resources available to the
company's customers. The inte
gration makes available more
than 1,000,000 kilowatts of gener
ating capacity in Washington,
Oregon and California for the system.
Construction of water and elec
tric service facilities in Central
Oregon in the year Just past re
quired the outlay of $500,000, Mc
Farland reported.
"The work programmed for
1962 will require almost double
that amount of investment to ex
pand and improve the systems,"
he added.
Major items on the construction
program Include substation addi
tions in Madras, a voltage con
version project in Redmond that
will complete a program started
earlier and a new 69.000 - volt
transmission circuit slated to con
nect Redmond and Prlneville, plus
a new substation at Culver.

You can't see it, although it's constantly at your

modern living into your life.
Electricity heats your home in winter, cools it in
summer, cooks for the family, does the laundry,
entertains you and can even "sit" for the baby.
There's almost no end to the magical comfort

Left hand
furn against
red light?
Do you know if you can legal
ly make a left hand turn against a
red light? The answer is "yes"
when entering certain one way
streets in Oregon. Although this
law has been part of the Oregon
Motor Vehicle Code for more than
ten years, it is still largely un
known. Bend field office manager, Mrs.
Virginia Laidlaw, of the Oregon
Department of Motor Vehicles,
recommended today that all local
motorists periodically review the
Oregon Driver's Manual, which
contains an up to date summary
of Oregon traffic laws, driver li
censing and financial responsibil
ity requirements and the Driver
Improvement program.
Some traffic laws that have
been on the books for years are
still misunderstood or not prac
ticed by a large percentage of
Oregon motorists, according to
Mrs. La'dlaw. She said too many
drivers. only study the Oregon
Driver's Manual when they first
get -their license and neglect to
keep up with changes in later
years. "A quick review of the lat
est manual can keep you Inform
ed on the requirements of the law
and clarify some safe driving
practices,". Mrs. Laidlaw said,
adding: . .
"Familiarity with the law is a
basic requirement for safe, driv
ing, and , the Oregon Driver's
Manual was designed to help mo
torists fulfill that requirement
