THE PHESS, ATHENA, OREGON, NOVEMBER 14, 1930 ( FEED GRAIN TO STOCK SAYS LEbG E Farm Board Head Gives ; His Ideas To Nebraska Bankers. Omaha. Alexander Legge, chair man of the federal farm board, car i ried into Nebraska his plan for feed- ing surplus grains to livestock. ! Speaking before the Nebraska as sociation here, Legge reiterated his .oft-repeated formula for increased feeding of livestock in Nebraska; Iowa I and other states where there is an abundance of roughage and grain. With feeder animals available at at tractive prices, the farm board head told the bankers their farmer custom ers could safely expand feeding oper ations and probably would "make ; more money doing that' tharf by sell- ' ing grain at the extremely low prices now prevailing." "I am putting forth this sugges- tion," Legge added, "as a possible - outlet for some of the surplus money about which you bankers ' in general . are complaining at the present time." Legge advised the bankers that they will be performing a helpful service to agriculture if they cooperate in the program to adjust production to the potential demand and lend encourage ' ment. in adjusting the size of farm units, particularly in the wheat grow ing sections. Legge denounced all farm relief , plans which have for their purpose the "dumping" of the American farm ers' grain surplus in foreign coun tries. - ' : ' . "As we see it," he said, "none of these schemes would work. Import-1 ing countries, with farm problems of their own, are quick to take action against dumping, most of them hav ing countervailing duties or other re strictions, some going to the extent of embargoes." , "Russia's dumping of . wheat on European markets the past six weeks, illustrates very well what could be ex pected in the event this country adopted a policy of subsidizing the exportation of farm crop surpluses. In five importing countries the govern' ments themselves or business associ ates took prompt action against Rus sia. -..;,v. ' ;' " ,. -, . : Legge stated there is nothing to the charge that the givernment is "in business" because of assistance given to cooperatives. "Our relationship to them is that of a financial banker or borrower," he explained. Bruno Weber " ' - AND ' ' Repair Work Prices Reasonable Successor To JENS JENSEN H. A.

RICHARDS, Insurance - Bulletin Shows Columbia River Basin Territory As An Irrigation Possibility The Columbia river basin geo graphically comprises the territory from the Pacific coast to the Teton mountains of Wyoming, west to east, and from the upper end of Winder mere valley in British Columbia to the great basin of Nevada, north to south. Such is the description given by the United States department of agriculture in a bulletin just issued on irrigation requirements of the Colum bia river basin. Once there were lowlands and shallow lakes where the Cascade mountains stand and the climate was warm and moist, similar to that of the Florida everglades, it is stated, as shown by fossil remains of magnolias palms and other tropical plant life, The ice sheet in the glacial period came as far south as Missoula Spok ane and Pen d'Oreille. It is found that an average of 151, 000,000 acre-feet of water passes The Dalles annually and that the volume will not be affected in any marked degree by future irrigation use, not withstanding the large area to be ir rigated. This is because the flow is so large in comparison with the water diverted. Storage will provide large water re sources in Eastern Oregon and Wash ington in Montana and in Southern Idaho without lessening substantially the Columbia's flow, and it is pointed out that the Salmon, Clearwater and Spokane rivers alone discharge 20, 000,000 acre-feet, more than enough to water all the land now irrigated in the Columbia basin. An area of 3,871,000 acres of land at present supplied with water may be increa&ed to 11,000,000 acres, the bulletin says, largely.by new storage, but also by improvement of canal systems to stop leakage and by more scientific use of water in irrigation. "It is to be noted," says the report "that in some instances the allot ment is less than the quantity now j used. In making this reduction there was no intention by the authors to handicap water users of future enter prises by granting too little water for their legitimate needs; rather the purpose was to emphasize the fact that it is more economical to expend labor and money - in-preparing land and providing facilities for applica tion of water than to pay for the ex cess of water required for poorly-prepared farms."

Oregon State College, Children raised on the Pacific coast need more protection against teeth deficiencies than anywhere else in the United States, said Dr. Guy Woods, of Port land who examined the teeth of the 4-H club boys and girls entered in the health contest at the Pacific Interna tional Livestock exposition. Lack of minerals m the water of the coast region deprives the children of the building material for the growth of strong, healthy teeth, the doctor pointed out, and many parents, not realizing this, fail to make up the deficiency through the child's diet. -"The prenatal period is the all-im portant time in this matter of teeth building," said Dr. Woods. "It is then that the child's teeth are form ed, and whether they are good or bad depends largely on the mother's diet during that time. She needs a double supply of milk and cod liver oil ' to provide for both herself and the child." Of next importance to the child's teeth is the first 10 years of its life, according to the doctor, and with this in mind, Miss Lucy A. Case, home economics extension specialist of Ore gon State College, who is in charge of the 4-H' health club work of the state recommends to the boys and girls en rolled in her clubs a daily diet con sisting of 1 quart of milk and 1 of water. 3 servings of vegetables, in cluding 1 of potatoes-and .2 of green or leafy vegetables, 2 - servings of fruit or 1 each of fruit and tomatoes, t serving of any two protein foods such as eggs, cheese, fish, meat, dried beans or peas, and 1 tablespoon of codliver oil. Miss Case places particular em phasis on a well-balanced diet, point ing out that it is unwise to eat ex cessive amounts of any one type of food in an effort to build up any one part of the body at the expense of an other. Other recommendations she makes to the health clubs include regular meals, no tea or coffee, at least 10 hours of sleep, and regular exercise out of doors. U. L. C. A. Downed By Oregon, One Touchdown , With John Kitzmjller leading the way in his last game on Hayward field, the University of Oregon Web foots punched over a touchdown in the first four minutes of play against the U. C. L. A. Bruins Saturday. It was the deciding touchdown for the final score was Oregon 7, U. C. L. A. 0. Kitzmiller did not score the touch down but he opened the way with a 30-yard dash through center to the Bruin one yard line. Sam Rotenberg, right half, took the ball across on the next play and Kitzmiller converted. Five times more the Webfoots ad vanced to within the Bruins 10-yard line but lost the ball on downs. - Oregon Gobblers Fewer Fewer gobbles of Oregon gobblers will be available at the Thanksgiving festive board this year, according to an Oregon State college agricultural department survey. Only 93 per cent, of 1929's turkey production will be raised this season, it was reported. Although the spring hatch of chicks was larger than for last year, depre dations of hawks and wild animals caused heavy losses in some sections, it was said. Dragged By Seed Drill The Weston Leader reports that Raymond Banister, who has been seeding in a field near town was drag ged more than 50 yards the other day bv the drill, one foot having become entangled between a wheel and the drill box. Ralph Piersol was driving the Banister "cat," and stopped as soon as he noticed Raymond s pre dicament. The foot was quite badly injured,' and "Banty" will be out of commission at a busy time. ' j .

If everyone would abide by this quotation how much better ofT he would be. Many things can happen between now and tomorrow, and as tomorrow never comes how can you do what should be done today, tomorrow? You can not do it; and do it like it should be done, or perhaps you will not do it at all. A very good example of leaving things until the next day happened during the Revolutionary War. The British, who were under the leader ship of the general, Coriiwallis, had made camp not , far from General Washington and his American troops. General Cornwallis, thinking that he had Washington cornered, said, "At last we have run down the old fox and we will bag hipi in! the morning." Thus he sent his army to sleep. While they slept Washington left fires burn ing in his camp, and he quietly and stealthily slipped -away into the dark ness and defeated other - British troops in a battle at Princeton. So the old fox escaped because Cornwal lis left the attack until the next morning. If the British general had only attacked, the Americans the night when he said he would leave it until morning, the story would have been different. Another good example of putting off until tomorrow what should be done today is that of a man who was going to take out an insur ance policy, so his family would be provided for in case of emergency. Upon leaving his home in the morning he remarked to his wife that he would take out the policy on his way to work. While on his way to his of fice he thought of something that his employer had asked him to do. He de cided to leave the insurance policy until noon and do what the employer had asked him to do instead. He very easily could have done both but he put off the most important thing. At noon he was late getting home lor his lunch. He rushed back to his of fice definitely declaring that he would get the policy that evening after work. Evening came and he left the office. He was crossing the street from his office to the post office when he was struck by an automobile and killed. His family was left in pover ty and want. And allon account of his putting oft until evening what he could have done in .the morning. One more good examplej of putting off is of some students in their school work. They may not have time to get a lesson in school so they take it home. When they get home instead of getting-that lesson, thfn, they say, "Oh, well, there is plenty of time between now and tomorrow,"? and they go and do something else of less importance, meaninsr to eet the lesson later in the evening. In the evening some of their friends come in and want tnem to go Rome Dlace with them, ao lor tne second time the lesson is left. This time to be gotten m the morning. The student goes and has a good time n1 forirets completely about the twice neglected lesson that he has left behind. In the morning ine student oversleeps and rises just in time to get to school before the bell rings. He has the class for which he was to get that neglected lesson the first period. He goes to class with an unprepared lesson, His grade goes down in the grade book as a zero. Do not be like these people just mention- Mi. It will not sret you any piace. Therefore let us all try and develop the "do it today" spirit at ence. Oregon Spuds Come Back After being pushed into the back ground for several years, commercial potato growing in Oregon has fairly floated back into prominence on a tide of irrigation water, according to E. R. Jackman, extension specialist in farm crops. The industry will be worth approximately $5,000,000 this year, he said. See ...
