How co-operation might be
worked out by the potato grow
ers of a given district so as to
eliminate what the compiler
terms "the financial disaster in
tiie marketing of their potatoes
met by the vast majority of Ore
gon farmers for the past three
years" is explained in the con
cluding paragraph of a 40-page
potato bulletin just issued by the
University of Oregon. The bul
letin is called "Markets for Po
tatoes,"" makes a general survey
of the potato situation, and may
lie had on application to the ex
tension division at Eugene.
The paragraph in question is:
"It might be advisable to
establish a central depot at a
convenient shipping plant read
ily accessible to the growers of
the district in which the associa
tion's formed. To this depot all
he growers would ship all their
potatoes where they would be
inspected and sorted. Only
fifiqse of the very highest quality
in every respect "would be mar
keted for seed and for table use,
and these carefully packed and
sold under a name xr brand that
would establish their reputation.
If this high quality was rigidly
maintained and the reputation
fully earned and justified (as has
lieen done sirniliarly for apples
from, certain districts) a pre
mium price above the prevailing
market could be demanded and
V'All culls and surplus could
then be worked up for industrial
Ifurposes and the volume of sup
ply probably would warrant the
erection and operation of the
aiecessary plants for drying,
starch manufacturing and alco
liol distilling. The peelings from
the dryer and the residue from it
and from the starch factory, in-,
eluding the water from the lat
ter, could be used by the distil
lery for the extraction of all re
maining fermentable values.
Tulp mash from the distillery
and the slop could be returned
to the growers for stock food in
proportion to their contribution
of potatoes, or their needs, and
all that finally remained could

"In this way every stage of the
operation, every pound of pota
toes raised, might be made to
yield a prpflt to the growers.
This presupposes and includes
mutual efforts for the improve

potatoes grown, and for the
combatting and eradication of
disease. It might be advisable

POMONA GRANGE TAKES
UP CORN CONTEST IDEA
The Pomona grange of Lane
county which meets next time,
May 9, 1915, in Springfield, will
take up the matter of separate
granges offering a blooded sow
prize to the individual member
of the organizations for the best
jhalf acre of corn grown in his
district. R. B. Coglon, county
agriculturist, and C. J. Hurd,
state deputy of the grange for
Lane county, visited the mem
bers of the executive committee
of the Pomona grange at Junc
tion City yesterday and discus
sed the question, resulting in the
promise of the members of the
committee to support the move
ment, which has been started by
"The idea is to get the granges
to take up a regular program
of definite and useful work and
adopt a policy of progressive
farming," said Mr. Coglon upon
his return from the meeting. He
Is very enthusiastic over the
proposition. He believes that
the quality of corn raised in this
county can be improved by such
a contest and the giving of the
prize sow pigs will tend to im
prove the breed of the swine of
the county. Already Willakenzie
and Irving granges have taken
up the idea.

contest scheduled for Dexter to
day will be postponed on account
, ot f4the heavy rain last night.

did the ground would have been

was to have attended and who
suggested the plan to the far
