Washington advices are to the ef
fect that following the signing of the
farm relief bill, the president would
ask congress for $150,000,000 of the
$500,000,000 revolving fund author
ized for loans to assist the farmer
owned and controlled stabilization
corporations and co-operatives
Simultaneously he will begin selec
tion of the eight men to compose the
federal farm board, which is to ad
minister the fund and have author
ity in agriculture comparable with
that of the federal reserve board and
the interstate commerce commission
in their spheres.
Secretary Hyde will request farm
organizations and others interested
to suggest men for board appoint
ments. Mr. Hoover hopes that within
two weeks he can select ' a board
from this personnel and that which
already has been proposed to him.
Thus far Mr. Hoover haB made no
definite selections, but it is known
that two being considered seriously
are James C. Stone of Lexington,
Ky., president of the Burley Tobacco
Growers' Co-operative association,
and Carl Williams, a , farm paper
publisher of Oaklahoma, and former
ly a member of the federal board of
mediation. r r. A
Rather definite information is
available that neither Julius Barnes
of New York, ex-president . of the
United States prain corporation, nor
Frank O. Lowden, ex-governor of
Illinois, and foremost among the ad
vocates of the equalization fee plan
of farm relief, will be offered places
on the board. Both had been men
The president is understood to de
sire men who have had successful
experience in the co-operative field
and especially in handling basic com
modities such as cotton, grain, live
stock and tobacco. ;
. 1 President Hoover described the
farm relief bill as "a constructive
start at agricultural relief" and as
"the most important measure ever
passed by congress in aid of a single
His formal statement, issued sev
eral hours after the actual signing,
"After many years of contention
we have at last made a constructive
start at agricultural relief with the
most important measure ever passed
by congress in aid of a single indus
try. "As it would have introduced many
cross currents to have initiated any
movement toward the selection of the
farm board until after the legislation
was completed, no steps have been
taken in this direction beyond the re
ceipt of several hundred recommenda
tions. "It will require two or three weeks
to make these selections. The choice
of the board is not easy, for its mem
bers must in a measure be distributed
regionally over the country, it must
at the same time be chosen so as to
represent so far as possible each
major branch of agriculture.
"Moreover, the board must be made
up of men of actual farm experience
and inasmuch as its work lies largely
in marketing in conjunction with
farm co-operatives its membership
should be comprised of men who
have been actually engaged in direct
ing farmers' marketing organizations.
It is desirable that the board should
have in its constitution at least one
man experienced in general business
and one with special experience in
finance." . .
Wenaha Stock Men
Fix Standing Reward
For Cattle Rustlers
Members of the Wenaha Cattle and
Horse Association, holding a special
meeting at Walla Walla Saturday,
voted to offer $100 reward for infor
mation leading to the arrest and con
viction of any person caught stealing
cattle or sheep within the jurisdiction
of the association.
Posters announcing the reward are
to be printed and posted along all
roads in the forest reserve, on trees
in conspicious places, and elsewhere
in sections where stealing is going on
or apt to be going on, to let the
thieves know that the stockmen are
aroused and mean business.
President Eugene Thomas called
the meeting to order at the cham
ber of commerce rooms in the morn
ing' and at noon presided over a
luncheon at the Grand hotel, follow
ing which the rustling problem was
. Instances were cited of cattle
stealing in the past and the difficulty
of getting evidence. Mr. Thomas
suggested the "reward as a possible
solution and after being thoroughly
discussed it was decided to try it Mr.
Lowden, manager of the Walla Walla
Meat and Cold Storage company said
his firm would offer $50 toward such
a reward and the association voted
immediately to match this.
The association has been fighting
"rustlers" for years and through the
reward system hopes to make it easi
er to get information which will lead
Some men have been going into
the hills with trucks and killing
calves, bring them to the markets, it
was stated. Some other methods of
handling the situation were discussed
but it was decided to make public
simply the matter of the reward.
"The stockmen mean business on
this .-rustling matter," i said , Mr.
Thomas. "The money will be paid
when earned. We are going to stop
this stealing." , -,.
Would Clamp Lid On
Fire Works Kettle
The Pendleton East Oregonian'says
the lid to the "Firecracker" ordin
ance,, which was undamped in Pen
dleton this year, may be clamped on
again immediately after the Fourth
of July, and extra bolts put into it to
keep it down for all time. Such was
the attitude of the city councilmen,
who met after a week of endless cele
bration of nothing in particular.
The councilmen didn't celebrate,
they all kicked themselves for ever
slipping the clamp off of the ordin
ance, for not one of them have en
joyed the premature celebration of
But after the Fourth of July this
year, when all merchants will have
had a chance to unload their stock of
fireworks, the clamps will be put in

Eliminate Summer Fal- :
low Is Experts Task
Designed to develop a system of
farming in the Palouse country which"
will eliminate the costly summer fal
low and establish a permanent sys
tem of agriculture, an extensive re
search project has been started by
the agricultural economics at Pull
man, cooperating with the University
of Idaho and the bureau of agricul
tural economics of the United States
Department of Agriculture.
Byron Hunter, of the federal bu
reau has established headquarters at

fessor George Severence, head of the
department of agricultural economics
in directing the research work.
The project is already under way,
according to Professor Severance, and
will continue until late in October.
The area to be studied includes those
portions of the present wheat belt of
eastern Washington and northern
Idaho where nreciDitation is suf
ficient .to make crop rotation and
elimination of summer .lallow pos
sible. . . 1 - . '
"Many of the - more progressive
farmers who have broken away from
established practice in straight wheat
farming will be interviewed," Profes
sor Severance says, "and several
feasible plans of organization will be
developed from a study of their ex
periments and the results of experi
ments conducted by the two institu
tions at Pullman and Moscow.
