with the proper officials thla ver
phase of the food control situation.
In the statement given out by the
mill management. It wa pointed out
that the reduction in the price of
wheat cannot reduce flour pricea ma
terially, since flour food are even
now among lha eheapeet edible. Un
lea other farm product are regu
lated, however, farmer will put In
lea wheat this fall, sowing a more
profitable crop. The regulation of
all claaae of food product, on the
other hand, while poealbly lowering
the profit on all, would leave their
rumiHinitlve desirability from the
farmer' standpoint, the same aa be
fore federal Intervention.

A part of a carload uf seed wheat

representatives of tha Central Oregon
irrigation company yesterdsr pre
sented to the Daaart Land Hoard the
company's proposed plan of reorga
nization, which Stearns ssld would
lead up to the settler' eventually
having control. The plan Is to orga
nize what will be known as the Des
chutes Water Users' Corporation, un
der the general laws of the state, as
co-operative with the water users
association. Under the articles, as
many fcharos of capital stock as there
are Irrigable acros In the two segre
gations would be authorized, making
approximately 100,100 shares Bach
share of stock Is to represent a defi
nite tract of land and no stock la to
be transferred without the transfer
of the land. The stock would be val
ued nominally at J 10 a share to rep
resent the coat of Irrigation work
already completed. It would be Is
sued to the Central Oregon Compaq .
which In turn would deliver tit. stocc

Portland, who was present for the
settlers, Intimated that the t'lfrs
would never stand tor the plan pro
posed by Stearns.
