By State Market Agent.
The potato crop of the United
Statea Is about the same as that of
last year, and indications are for fair
prices. Prices were good in 1925, and
the production this season is about
13 per cent below the five year aver
age and around 73 per cent of normal
Peaches 50 Cents Each.
While peaches have retailed as low
as 50 cents per box in Oregon they
retail from 15 to 50 cents in England,
so states a Department of Agricul
ture publication. The same authority
states that Pacific coast Gravenstein
apples sold for $4.62 in Liverpool,
with the smaller sizes at from $3.41
to $3.89. Southern apples in barrels
sold from $5.11 to $9.73.
Illinois Knows Value of Lime.
The state of Illinois knows the val
ue of lime as a renewer of cropped
lands and last year 800,000 tons wore
purchased by the farmers of that
state. Oregon farms need lime us
badly as the middle west states but
the high cost has held it back from
general use. The lime rock is shipped
from Jackson county to the prison
plant at Salem, where it is ground by
prison labor and shipped to farmers
under local freight rates. The com
bined rates make tho price too high
for general use, so state the farmers
and county agents. Governor Pierce
has taken up the matter of reduced
rates with the Public Service commis
sion, and a hearing has been called at
Salem, September 22.
Warehousing Canned Goods.
The Secretary of Agriculture has
authorized the placing of canned
goods on the list for warehouse stor
age under the U. S. Warehouse Act.
Canners and various growers' asso
ciations in Oregon and California
have been working for this for two
years past. Under a Federal Ware
house receipt it is far easier to fi
nance than under the old method.
All products must be Federally in
spected by licensed graders before
they enter storage and they are
barred from storage if they do not
meet the requirements.
Farm Conditiong Improve.
The Bureau of Agriculturaal Econ
omics states that the average farm
family earned $648 for labor and man
agement during 1925-26 or $24 more
than in the preceding year. Although
tliis showing is considerably abovs
the very meagre earnings during the
severe years of the depression, it is
yet nearly 30 per cent below the
comings of 1919-20, the Department
formation on which to base the price
may safely put it at nearly one-third
of the market value of a 200-pound
I'ig. This relation of cost of wean
ling to cost of market animal in Ore
gon was arrived at through many sur
veys and studies by the experiment
station animal husbandry department.
The actual cost of producing the pig
depends mainly on the size of the lit
ter, but 30 per cent of the value of
the 200 pound pig has been found to
be a fair valuation of the weanling,
Bordeaux mixture 4-4-50 should be
applied to apple trees before fall
rains start to protect against rainy
season infections with apple .tree an
thracnose canker and European can
ker where present.
One-crop farmers using irrigation
water all need it at once whereas di
versified crops in suitable rotations
in one community permits a more
even distribution of water throughout
the irrigation season. An increase
of 50 per cent in crop production
through rotation is made on the ex
periment station farms at Corvallis
where the oldest experimental plots
in Oregon are maintained.
Anyone wishing to buy or sell a
pig at weaning time and lacking in-

New Rules In Effect
For U. 0. Registration
Universiyt of Oregon, Eugene, Ore.,
Sept. 18. Although new applications
are being admitted every day, 1268
new students were accepted up to
September 15, it was announced today
by Carlton E. Spencer, registrar. The
total resident enrollment, Mr. Spen
cer estimated, will be approximately
3500 which exceeds last year by about
Scholarship rules, in effect for the
first time this fall, designed to elim
inate poorly prepared students have
so far kept approximately 300 from
entering, Mr. Spencer said. Those
who have failed in other colleges are
barred. Non-residents must pay the
$150.00 fee and meet two require
ments: qualify to enter the state
university of their home state and
meet the Oregon requirements. Many
students have been kept out, some go
ing to other institutions, by the rule
which allows the lowest one-fourth
in Oregon high schools to enter "only
on probation.
"Although our motto may be fewer
students and our scholastic standards
high, enrollment will exceed all oth
er years," Mr. Spencer declared.
President Arriold Bennett Hall will
n.ake his first public address at an
exclusive freshman assembly Tues
day as part of freshman week, the
purpose of which is to introduce the
students into university life.
For several years the university
has given the entering class psycho
logical tests, which, this year, will be-
gin Monday lasting two days. Th
results do not affect the admission of
students but throw light on what they
are expected to do as the tests are
utilized by the scholarship and disci
pline committees as well as for edu
cational guidance.
Ban on Automobiles
Wanted at University
University of Oregon, Eugene, Ore.,
Sept. 22 Pointing out that automo
biles brought to college by University
students are a cause of poor scholar
ship and increase the danger of moral
delinquency. University authorities
have appealed to parents to prohibit
their sons and daughters from bring
ing cars to Eugene, it was announced
While several other, large institu
tions have prohibited the use of stu
dent cars, Oregon will attempt to
solve the problem by seeking the par
ents' co-operation, it was stated.
"The increasing use of automobiles
by university students has been ob
served with much concern by univer
sity officials everywhere," a letter
sent to parents today read. "Careful
studies have shown that they cause
poor scholarship, are expensive, waste
valuable time, increase the danger of
moral deleinquency, and cause traffic
congestion about the campus; that
at best they are undesirable and un
necessary at college, and that they
are often positively demoralizing."
Although permission may be ob
tained in cases where automobiles
are particularly necessary, officials
pointed out that "we are constantly
striving to maintain on the campus
a simple, wholesome, democratic and

Out of the lot!
NO need to argue quality when you can taste it,
nor to prove popularity when you can see it!
Out of the whole lot, men pick Chesterfield for its
tobacco character and its natural good taste. Every
bit of its enormous growth has been earned by its taste,
and by that alone!
It's pretty clear from Chesterfield's record that good
tobaccos can speak for themselves.
