acreage shows an increase of 6 per
cent ver that of last year and the
area for harvest is estimated to be
1,060,000 acres. Conditions have
been favorable for spring wheat since
planting time and the crop on June
1 averaged 92 per cent of normal
This condition of 92 forecasts a' pro
duction of 17,066,000 bushels, as
compared with 9,200,000 bushels in
1922 and 16,673,000 bushels, the

improvement in condition of all
grain crops during the month of May-
is the high spot in the Oregon crop
situation as of June 1, 1923, accord
ing to P. L. Kent, agricultural sta
tistician, United States department
of agriculture. Condition of the Ore
gon winter wheat crop is estimated
at 9 7 per cent of normal, which is
higher than in any other important
winter wheat stalte. Condition of
the crop in other states ranges from
a high mart of 92 per cent of nor
mal in Washington to 6 5 per cent of
normal in Kansas, the nation's
heaviest wheat producing state.
Condition of the winter wheat crop
improved slightly in the state dur
ing the month of May. Good grow
ing weather, for grain, prevailed
during the month, although a little
more sunshine would have been bet
ter. A good rain fell over much of
the eastern Oregon wheat country on
June 1, and came at a very oppor
tune time on the lighter soils. Much
of the acreage is fully headed and in
some districts the crop is said to be
a week or ten days earlier than us
ual. It is predicted that the crop
will be ready for cutting before July
1, in the earlier field3.
Reports indicate the acreage seed
ed this spring in Oregon was about
9 5 per cent of that of a year ago.
A fine fall for seeding over a large
part of the state allowed for heavier
than average fall seeding, and it is
reported in some districts that there
has been ". decided trend toward the
planting oil more barley and oats and
less wheat. The Oregon spring
wheat acreage is now estimated at
237,000 acres with a condition of 95
per cent thus indicating a probable
crop of 4,005,000 bushels. Last
year the final estimate was 2,864,
000 bushels, two years ago, 4,4 54,
000 bushels, and the live-year aver
age 4,433,000 bushels.

Leave an ample margin between your
income and your expenses. What you
lose in immediate pleasure will be amply
repaid in the sense of assurance and
self-respect which go hand in hand with
a good-sized bank account.
Living- on margin is diametrically op
posed to the principle involved in buy

servation, the latter is speculation.
