m:V CAMPAIGN. OATEH IN DECEMBER.
A campaign to promote farm re
cord keeping has been planned Joint
ly by the Oregon State Bankers' As
sociation, the Oregon Agricultural
College, and the U. S. department
"The project will encourage und
assist farmers to keep financial and
cost of production records," explains
It. V. liuiiii, farm demonstrator for
the extension service. "Tills practice
has not been generally developed
among farmers, although Its value
is not "questioned by them.
"The need for such records hus
been emphasized by the government's
requlrome&l that nearly all farmers
inn .1 submit income tax reports, to
determine whether they are subject
to the income tax. This n i Is
further emphasised in the s.ani re
cognition given to farmers by pride-
fixing commissions engaged in fix
ing prices on farm produce, because
aci urate data Is lacking.
Groups of l, mm rs in nine coun
ties have already agreed to cooperate
with the bankers and the College In
obtaining ami recording production
cost. Simple, uniform farm records
have been prepared and will be sup
plied to the farmers through the
county agents und farm bureau.
One more county group will ho
accepted by Mr. Ounn, who says
thai he can handle ten groups next
year. Officers i the bankers' as
sociation iaj thai the first issue t
B000 record books Is only one third
enough to upply the demand thai
will be created by the campaign.
