Corvallit, Ore., August 22, GRAIN
Favorable weather in the Spring
wheat sections of the United States
and Canada last week with lack of
further frost damage and no further
serious developments of rust caused
an easier tone in the wheat market.
High protein wheat sold at substan
tial premiums and cash wheat brought
better prices than futures. Official
estimates now indicate that 60.000.
000 bushels of wheat more than last
year will be produced in the Northern
Hemisphere, but weather conditions
may still cause change. Crop condi
tions in the Southern Hemisphere
are a factor. Increased receipts
caused com and oats markets to go
lower but barley was generally firm
especially malting grades. The new
corn crop made favorable progress in
recent weeks but is still uncertain.
The oats crop is expected to be 25,
000,000 bushels more than last year
but stocks of old grain are smaller
making the prospective supply 60,000,
000 bushels less than a year ago. The
rye crop is expected to be 61,000,000
bushels or about 20,000,000 more than
last year. A barley crop of 249,000,000
bushels is forecast which is next to
a record but a short crop of corn
gives strength to barley in the mar
kets. FEEDS. Cash hay markets held
fairly steady with western alfalfa
markets benefitted by the deteriora
tion of pastures. The movement of
new crop hay is reported to be below
normal. Official estimates for the
tame hay crop now indicates 102.000,
000 tons which is the largest crop
ever harvested in the United States.
Wild hay is also expected to produce
a heavy yield and pastures are espec
ially good this year in most sections.
Wheat feeds are higher on light pro
duction and other feeds firm but de
LIVESTOCK. Top grades of killer
cattle in good demand but prices were
inclined to weaken for poorly finished
stock last week. Feeders and stock
ers came in larger numbers but met
demand enough to maintain steady
prices. Hog markets were up and
down with the situation not too
strong in eastern markets where much
poorly finished stock is arriving. De
creased receipts of fat lambs bol
stered up the markets somewhat last
week generally but there is difference
of opinion regarding the supplies to
be marketed in the near future. Good
feeders were strong and limited sup
plies of all kinds found an outlet at
steady prices, but there is consider
able resistance to current prices by
buyers and some orders going un
filled. BUTTER. Prices advanced gener
ally last week. Production is declin
ing but running ahead of last year
-.ith storage stocks gradually in
creasing more rapidly than last year.
On August 1 butter in storage totaled
145,146,000 pounds or about 14,000,

State Board of Health.
Eighty-two cases of epidemic polio
myelitis or infantile paralysis were
reported to the California State
Board of Health during the first two
weeks of July. A few cases have been
reported in Oregon. Infantile paraly
sis is an acute generalized infection
due to a filterable virus, occurring
both in epidemics and sporadically.
The infective nature of the disease
has been conclusively shown. The
virus attacks the nervous system
and persists in the nasal secretion
for a long time. The paralysis may
be preceded three or four days by
nausea, vomiting, and fever. How
ever, a child may go to bed apparent
ly well, and wake up in the morning
with paralysis and slight fever. The
great majority of cases are found in
children under five. Cases among
persons over twenty are comparative
For the benefit of the public the
following regulations for the control
of infantile paralysis are published:
The patient should be isolated as
completely as possible in a clean.
bare room, well screened to keep out
insects. Visiting is not permitted,
and only the necessary attendant
should come in contact with the case.
All discharges, including sputum, na
sal secretions, urine and feces, should
be thoroughly disinfected. Eating
utensils should be boiled. Every
thing that comes in contact with the
patient should be streilized. Towels,
bed linen, and other fabrics should
be boiled or dipped in a strong germ
icidal solution. The period at which
isolation should be maintained can
not be guessed at. Children are not
permitted to return to school for at
least three weeks.
In the presence of an epidemic,
street and house dust should be kept
down by sprinkling, oiling, or other
means employed for this purpose
Dust should be allayed whether there
is an epidemic or not. During epi
demies children should be kept away
lrom public gatherings.
The possibility of infantile paraly
sis being a milk-borne infection em
phasizes the importance of the proph
ylactic value of pasteurized milk.
The summer prevalence and thi
rural distribution of this disease are
disturbing factors with regard to
summer vacations. The only safe rule
is to avoid places where localized out
breaks are in progress. The fact,
however, that infantile paralysis does
not UBUtlly strike the same place in
epidemic form two succeeding sea
sons makes such places reasonably
safe the year following the epidemic

The story of the guy that everybody picken -on the drama of a man who wanted to but couldn't
