Eickhoff Believes 50,000
Acres Summer Fallow Is
- Adapted to Bean Culture
H. H. Eickhoff of the Eickhoff
Farm Products company was a Pen
dleton Kiwanis club speaker at Tues
day's luncheon. Mr. Eickhoff is quot
ed by the East Oregonian, in part,
"Annroyimatelv 50.000 acres . nf
summerfallow land in Umatilla coun
ty seems adaptable to the growing of
navy beans. This year the company
has a total of 10,450 acres in beans,
of which 6500 acres are in Umatilla
county and the remainder in Walla
Walla" county, .Washington."
The company is expending a total
of $350,000 on its Derations in the
two counties this year, of which
amount the sum of $80,000 is for ma
chinery, said Mr. Eickhoff. '
Thn crnwer is naid S3 an acre rent
for his land and is paid for his labor
in seeding, harrowing, etc., around
S5 an acre thus nettine the farmer
$8 per acre and in addition he has
the privilege of using the straw if
he wishes to do so.
According to Mr. Eickhoff this re
gion is particularly adapted to grow
ing beans of the variety tne company
is interested in because we usually
have the right seasonal rainfall, be
cause of the probability oi dry
weather during the bean harvest in
Aiicnst. and Sentember. The bean
being produced here is entirely for
canning purposes and tne Deans win
be shipped east. The navy bean is
desired because it is of a uniform
size. The crowing season for the
navy bean is 100 days.
Tn the view of Mr. Eickhoff the
growing of beans will not material
ly reduce the wheat crop tne ionow
ing year and in some instances may
actually improve conditions for wheat
At nre&ent. the comnanv reckons
upon an annual rainfall of 17 inches
in order to make good bean growing
conditions but much depends upon the
rainfall during the growing season.
A.pnrHin(T to Mr. Eickhoff most ot
the reservation country seems adapt
able to bean growing but m answer
tnrlnv he Questioned if
the Helix country would be suitable.

five to one, Walla Walla residents
voiced their approval of the purchase
by the city, of the Walla Walla Air
port. An unofficial report from the
25 precincts in the city showed 2,787
persons favored the, issuance of $50,
000 in bonds for the purchase of the
field east of the city, while only 576
votes were cast against the projects.
Although such an overwhelming
percentage of ballots in favor of the
project was hardly ' anticipated, the
organizations and' individuals back
ing the campaign expected the neces
sary 60 percent of the ballots to be
cast in favor of the purchase.
The gratifying feature of the elec
tion was that the required number
of votes! necessary to make the spec
ial election legal was exceeded by 495.
The total vote needed was 2,868 while
the total actually cast amounted to
3,363. , - ;

Proposed to Make
Legion Regatta Races
Annual Sport Event

made possible by utilizing the steps
on the concrete dam, and others view
ed the events from automobiles park
ed on the hillside and near the lake
'shore. . . ', ,.., ,

Igatta a Success and plans are being
made to have an annual affair of it.
Financially, the Pendleton Legion
Post, sponsor of the event, is away
to the good, notwithstanding the
small attendance Saturday.
Some complaint is heard to the ef
fect that the program was slowed up
for the reason that there was no en
tertainment for the, crowd between
races. - Henry Collins, starter in the
racing events, is quoted as follows
in the East Oregonian:
"In my opinion, it would be an im
provement if the course was short
ened. Another improvement, I think,
would be some sort of Handicap sys
tem. In addition, the program could
be enlivened by having entertain
ment between races. This could in
clude water sportB and similar features."
