In ad dition to Mr. Booher'a wheat crop which the Herald notes, Mr. Booher threshed 25 acres of peas from which he took a yield of 2,898 pounds, net ting him $79.33 per acre. The Herald says: .. ', . , ..,. v The harvesting of spring wheat is well under way in almost every see tion of the Kootenai Valley and all reports have it that an exceptionally high quality of gram ia being - pro. duced, with a high protein content In Drainage District No. 1, J. Booher is harvesting a field of 320 acres , on which the average yield is better than 78 bushels to the acre. An 80-acre tract in this same district owned by Frank Clapp is reported as having produced better than 80 bush' els to the acre. The wheat yields are exceeding an ticipations and many fields have pro duced far larger crops than was es timated by the owners. ' In Drainage District No. 9, an es timate of 30 bushels per acre was made on a field of 30 acres of wheat by one of the best qualified men in the county to judge wheat yields and when the tract was threshed it was found that better than 40 bushels to the acre had been harvested.

Closing of Deer Season Hinges Upon Fire Hazard J-.y r - 1 ' Salem. Unless 'the fire hazard in Oregon forests becomes worse than it is now Governor -Norblad will not interfere with the opening of the deer hunting season on September 15, he announced in a statement issued late Wednesday. Extraordinarily danger ous weather, he said,' would cause him to keep the season closed to October 1, but he said he would not close it after that date. The governor said he had received many requests to proclaim the season closed beyond September 15, the nor mal opening' date, as a precaution against forest fires, but also many petitions not to interfere. , A ban on deer' hunting until October 1, he add ed, would work a hardship on "fall workers, college professors, students and other persons from enjoying the season. "If the huntiner season is partly closed there will be a great number of hunters in the woods during the condensed season thereby increasing danger to life and limb," the state ment said. "The deer hunters are no more careless than fishermen, hikers, berry pickers, tourists and others. The latter class ' of people are not prohibited by law from going into we forests durlntr the huntinsr season and they far outnumber the hunters." Another reason is that "our Oregon season overlaps the season in some AilininiiiF? states. If the season should be closed up to October 1 many hunt ers would come from other states al ter having killed a leeal auota of deer in their own states. This is unfair to the people of Oregon. The governor stated that alter RontomW 1.1 there is heaw dew in the mountains, reducing the danger of fire, pe further says tnat many OTiiHes. small storekeepers and am munition dealers depend on the bunt ing season for most oi tneir years income, ' .

Washington, D- C The Farm Board' read a acreaze reduction nnliiio api culture department reports that farm ers intend to seed 4.5 per cent less winter wheat this fall th Alt MTQ O onan. MO U-; ed last fall. , ' . , Board headouarters. in the h of Chairman Legge and Sam R. Mc Kelvie, member representing grain, authorized a statement that the re duction in the heart of the wheat belt notably Kansas was of particular significance since in that state the bitterest opposition to acre age adjustment developed. . Kansas expects an average onlv 93 per cent as laree as the acrence need ed in 1929; Nebraska, 87 per cent; Oklahoma. 87 ner cent: Texas. AS cent and Colorado, 93 per cent While considered favorable to the Farm Board's program, the situation in Kansas admittedly is somewhat, nt an enigma. The reduction in intend ed seeding there is figured against the, largest acreage in history In Kansas, unless the 1930 acreage ' Proves to have heen 1nrror Tn 1090 Kansas harvested 11,476,000 acres against 10,433,000 in 1928. According to current estimates a - total of 42.392.000 of winter wheat will be seeded this fall as compared with 42,820,000 acres actually planted m i28, or which 40,162,000 acres were harvested in 1929. It is the lowest intended acreage since 1923. Farmers in 17 of the 22 states growing winter wheat report inten tions to seed more land this fall than a year ago but they are not surplus producing states. With the exception of New; Mexico all have harvested large acreasres at some time in the jJUBC LI1HII III. -4949, iBW Bntl- cipates a 5 per cent increase over her records of 263,000 acres in 1929. Almost all the cotton belt states. except Texas and Oklahoma, show in tention to increase their acreage of winter wheat .from 10 to 50 per cent over the acreage seeded in J929. Georgia lists the 30 per cent increase. but Georgia harvested only 85,000 acres in 1WJ as against 125,000 in 1927. Nevada and Washington are the other two states indicating a 50 per cent increase. It is not considered so important in Nevada, where 5,000 acres in 1926 was a record, but Wash ington indicates an acreage of 1,956, 000 acres as compared to 1,210,000 harvested in 1929 and 1,424,000 in 1928.
