Oregon Agricultural College, Cor­
vallis Four courses in vegetable grow­
ing are to be given in the short course
at the Oregon Agricultural college
which opens its four weeks' session
January 6.
For the past few years Oregon, un­
surpassed for opportunities for the
production of vegetables, has seen a
large increase in vegetable growing.
Hundreds of carloads of vegetables
that might easily be raised within the
state, however, are now being shipped
“The state should be an exporter of
vegetables, rather than an importer,"
says Prof. (’. I. Lewis, discussing the
situation. “At the present time, with
the exception of onions and potatoes,
a large per cent of the vegetables we
consume art* imported. In order to
meet the demands for information on
vegetable gardening four courses are
beng offered this year.”
Twelve lectures, given Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday of each week,
will be devoted to the problems con­
nected with commercial vegetable­
growing. dealing with such important
products as celery, tomatoes, aspara­
gus. rhubarb, onions, cauliflower and
Special consideration will be given
the matter of soils for these crops,
blanching and storing.
"No matter how g/xxl a product we
can grow, unless it is marketed intel­
ligently and unless it is properly
graded, we will often be unable to
realize the profit that we should be*
able to make,” says Prof. Lewis.
“One of the greatest problems before
the Oregon vegetable grower at the
present time is the proper marketing
of vegetables.
The various markets
of the state will be considered in a
course given on the same days as the
commercial vegetable course. Special
attention will be given to grading,
packing and marketing the most im­

Engineer Recommends Rapid Work
Done On Celilo Canal.
Washington, D. C. How $100,000
in cash and more than a year in time
can be saved on the construction of
the Celilo canal is fully set forth in a
report by ,Captain H. H. Roberta, of
the Army Engineer corps, recently
transmitted to congress.
It remains
to be seen whether congress will be
willing to direct this economy by in­
creasing the appropriations for the
canal, so the work can be completed
The report of
by January 1, 1915.
Captain Roberta, heretofore reviewed
briefly, summarizes the appropriation
to date, showing a total of $3,150;000,
and adds:
“The amount required to be appro­
priated for completion of the existing
project is $1,808,392.64.
“The delay incurred since January
1, 1912, as compared with what would
have been the rate of progress had
ample funds been available, is esti­
mated as at least six months, there
having been necessary reservation
made of a portion of the then avail­
able funds to provide for the possi­
bility of no funds becoming available
by the last river and harl/or act. This
delay was made up of reduction of
force and partial suspension of work
for several months, total suspension of
work for about two months, together
with additional delays incident tp de­
livery of materials, collection of force,
etc., necessarily incurred in starting
the work again.
“After careful consideration of
present conditions, it ¡8 believed that
in view of the above-mentioned delays
already incurred, the canal cannot be
completed to best advantage before
January 1, 1915, even with ample
funds available for the work.
canal can, however, with funds avaii-
able, be completed by that date, which
is one year and six months in advance
of June 25, 1916, the time orginally
proposed in the river and harbor act
of June 25, 1910.
