NEWS FROM THE
The Outlook for This Year.
The general outlook for the mar
keting situation for 1927 is not much
different from the past year, and the
surplus problem is as yet unsolved.
Cotton, corn, hay and beef have not
been profitable products, while pota
toes, eggs, butter, wool and hogs have
had fair markets. The big surplus
cotton crop of the south is reflected
n Wisconsin and other sates in the
cheese industry. The south has been
a big consumer for middle west
cheese, but with the big surplus and
low price for cotton, this demand for
dairy products has been materially
decreased. The Labor Bureau reports
lhat wages of industrial workers are
on the increase, as are also average

Many Small Co.Op. Associations.
More than one half of the co-oper
ative buying and selling associations
of this country have memberships
ranging below one hundred, accord
ing to a survey of the U. S. Depart
ment of Agriculture. Approximately
23 per cent of the total number which
made reports had from one to 60
members each. About 10 per cent
had from 200 to 300 members and less
than three per cent of all had more
than 300. Twenty nine per cent had
from 61 to 100 and 39 per cent from
101 to 200 each. Organizations weak
in numbers and volume of products
can have but small influence in price
determination and their overhead ex
penses are certain to be too great for
the volume of business. Cooperatives
must have strength of number and
product to be effective and co-operation
must become a philosophy, a re
ligion, between fanner members and

Intelligent care of mother-to-be is
a means of safegurading the lives of
both mothers and babies in Oregon.
There is an increasing consciousness
in all civilized countries of the im
portance of decreasing the heavy loss
to the community due to the high
death rate among mothers at child
birth and among infants during the
first year of life. Saving the lives of'
others and babies is largely a mat
ter of giving the mother and child a
square deal. One of the greatest
problems today is maternity and child

hygiene. Each year in the counties
of Oregon there are about 800 deaths
among children under a year old or
approximately one out of every twen
ty born alive.
A better understanding on the part
of the mothers of baby hygiene, baby
care, and baby feeding, has cut down
the death rate among older babies.
Many little lives can be saved when
the mothers are properly advised and
cared for before the babies are born.
Some interesting figures have re
cently been published that are of in
terest to every mother in Oregon. A
survey made in 25 cities showed that
S per cent had received proper in
struction before their babies were
born. Among these mothers there
were no deaths. Among the other
four thousand women who did not
have such advice one woman in every
96 lost her life at the birth of her
baby, and in this last group there
were six times as many baby deaths
ns fn the number born to mothers
who had prenatal care. These figures
are juBt as true in Oregon. Thous
ands of mothers in this state have re
ceived and are receiving advice and
instruction through the Bureau of
N'ursing and Child Hygiene of the
State Board of Health.
Oregon boasts of the lowest infant
mortality in the United States. Many,
many lives can be saved by providing
an adequate service for the instruc
tion and care of mothers and children.
The Federal government will cooper
ate in this work on a 60-60 basis. Ev
?ry state in the United States with
several exception has some form of
organized service for the conservation
of the lives of mothers and children.
When a state goes to improve its
apple crop it begins in one or sev
eral localities, does the best it can in
these places and keeps other apple
growers of the state informed about
the progress made. Such undertak
ings are called demonstrations, be
cause they show how the thinr ii
done. That is exactly the way Ore
gon has gone about improving the
crop of babies. At present there are
five counties in this state that are
providing an adequate and efficient
health service to every community
within their boundaries.
Of course there must be funds to
carry on and extend this work. The
funds for this work are supplied en
tirely through matching federal
funds. Oregon has accepted federal
funds to improve its crop in the fields
and in the past two years it has also
accepted them to improve the crop at
heme. A Word from you to your legis
lator will assist materially in obtain
ing adequate funds with which to
carry on the work of providing you
with health protection.

The spectacular Kiccesi of the
PontiacSix is as simple as A-B-C.
When introduced it was a car
such as no one had ever seen bo
fore a six developed by General
Motors, manufactured by Oak
land and offering, at $825, qual-
Ities of performance, comfort, beauty,
economy and reliability entirely new
in the field of low cost sixes.
Yet revolutionary as it then was, the
Pontiac Six is even farther in ad
vance of its field today. For no
only is it still the lowest priced
six with Body bv Fisher not
only is its power plant still the
largest used in any six selling
up to $1000
but the fundamental tightness of its
entire design has been proved by actual
service in the hands of over 60,000
PontiacSix, $825 to $975. Oakland Six, companion to Pontiac Six, $1025 to $1295. AUpHctt
