SEES OREGON FA H MING
"As goes agriculture in Oregon o
goes the town I support," said C.
W. I'ugsley, assistant secretary Uni
ted States department of agriculture
after a tour of ome of the leading
agricultural districts of the state. In
company with Paul V. Maris, direc
tor of the aUte colloijc extension
service, Mr, I'ugsley inspected the in
tensive trucking of the Portland dis
trict, diversified farming of the Wil
lamette and MY'Kenzle valleys, the
big; cattle region of central Oregon,
the bonanza wheat growing of the
Columbia basin, and the famous
Hood River fruit belt.
"Tho interest of town and country
here are so intimately related that
any slump in agriculture is immed
iately reflected in down-grade condi
tion in the town," said he. "The
sooner chamber of commerce and
other businessmen's organizations
recognize this and get behind their
farmers, the sooner will they see their
own business make steady progress."
The assistant secretary believes
thai the beat way for city interests
to back agriculture is to stand for
the prosperity of the farmers already
in action rather than strive for mors
farmer with more dairy cows.
"Oregon chambers of commerce
may well put into their platform one
plank to the effect that their farmers
shall be given the conditions of suc
cess," he said. "Unless the farmer
has a margin of profit over the cost
of production he cannot be a good
It wa pointed out by the assis
tant secretary that when the farmer
fail to get a profit wherewith to buy,
the factories reduce or stop produc
tion, labor is thrown out, transporta
tion lines run empties, trade fall off,
and everyone suffers.
The tour wag made to become ac
quainted with farm conditions here
with a view to more helpful coopera
tion by the great national department
he represents in their solution.
