Oregon on Return
Watt Shipp. of the Valley . Motor
company, returned yesterday from a
two weeks' trip in California. Mr.
fhipp devoted considerabla of hl time
thoroughly investigating the tractor
rtu u u(i cjnrtiilona In California.
. "I was m-catly surprised." said Mr.
Phlpp, "at the manner. In which Clt-tu-u.iL
has uUten to power, farming to
insure greater production and to meet
tl e. suit labor conditions. I find the
Fordson tractors in California now
n s-x thousand and all
Fordson dealers nave orders bookea

taking orders for fall - delivery nl
next fpring delivery. The rordson
'dealer have sold power farming in
their respective districts; the value of
tractors has been proven beyond doubt
and it has created such a demand
that It is no longer a matter of selling
' Fordson tractor but a matter of get
ting enough to supply fhe demand.
After looking these condition over I
could not but feel greatly disappoint
ed at the Fordson dealers In Oregon
who appear to be asleep as to the
great opportunities' of our state and I
cannot but emphatically " express my
disappointment nl the lack of enter i

of the Oregon dealers that they do

Jheir responsibility and prosecute a
vi a ,ign on the rale of trac
tors to our farmers. Our wonderful
.Willamette valley is lagging behind
and falling to enjoy the prosperity to
which they are entitled."
"he greatest enterprise In the Wil
lamette valley is Its farms and or
chards and wo are behind In produc
tion and deevlopment. I sincerely hope
the l'ordnon deulers of our Mate can
be soon brought together and the fact
impressed on them how much they
are failing In their duty, not only to
themselves but particularly to- the
farmer and the development of the
mate.. I cannot censure our farmers
for not generally adopting power farm
ing, as they have (lone in California,
for our farmer are kept too busy
striving to meet conditions and the
competition of our neighboring state,
to make a xtudy of the; benefits of
power farming. '
"My censure is directed to the
Fordson agents who have the great
est tractor In the world, bucked by
a company who have studied every
phase and detail of power farming.
Henry Ford worked fifteen years on
Various types and models until eigh
teen months ago when he went Into
production with a present production

before they are manufactured, tils
policy of "show me your orlers be

Interest our farmers to adopt the new
way. Die slate of Oregon would be

would bo spld under their own label
