The Outgoing anJlncoming Presidents
few weeks, the present level of
prices is 5 to 8 cents below a year
ago and there are some adverse fac
tors to be considered. Receipts of
eggs have been running ahead of
last year they were about 16 per
cent heavier in October; cold stor
age holdnigs of case eggs on Novem
ber 1 were 13 per cent larger; and
the estimated consumption of eggs
has been running materially behind.
There is also an increase in cold
storage poultry of practically all
kinds, the total on November 1 be
ing reported as 58.452.000 pounds as
against 52,315.000 pounds last year
at the same tmie. Of turkeys there
was 4,803,000 pounds compared to
4,170.000 pounds a year earlier and
five-year average of 3,734,000
Calvin Coolidge is to give up the reigns oi othce to Herbert Hoover,
who it is believed will closely adhere to the policies formulated by his
predecessor. Both men are more given to action than to words, and have
marked business and executive ability. Calvin Coolidge has been nominated
for man- offices, never suffering a defeat, but Herbert Hoover has not
engaged in politics before. The many important offices he has heretofore
held hav been appointive offices.
HOBBIES AND HABITS OF HOOVER AND
COOLIDGE BUT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT
Our next President, Herbert Hoo
ver, has always been known as a
man of action. He devotes about
sixteen hours a day to work, and
never seems to get tired of it One
of his chief recreations is fishing, at
which he is a great adept another
amusement is watching sports
events, at which he is always seen
with a bag of peanuts in his hand.
Peanuts seem to form one of the
chief items of his diet- He is tre
mendously fond of them.
Efficiency is his byword in every
department of life to save time, he
orders his clothing In large quanti
ties. He purchases as many as half
a dozen suits at one time in order
to avoid frequent trips to the store.
Hoover is six feet tall, and very
strong, but has a quiet reserve and
is at times quite shy. Though he is
very busy, he is one of the most ap
proachable men in America.
Calvin Coolidge, who is complet
ing his term as President, is also an
ardent fisherman an expert, in
fact, whose exploits in this line have
attracted much attention. He is an
able marksman, too, having as
tounded persons with his ability at
shooting at clay pigeons and other
targets. He is fond of wearing cow
boy clothes and "ten gallon" hats on
Coolidge believes in economy. In
his private life as well as through
out his administration, he counten
ances no extravagance. When his
term is up, he is returning to a
small house where his rent is $32.50
per month. No success makes him
depart frqm his simple tastes. '
Coolidge Is a splendid talker, but
never speaks when there is nothing
to be said. He is always sparing of
He has at the same time a great
sense of humor. One of the stories
told of him is that a lady next to
him at a dinner once turned toward
him and said:
"I bet someone that I could make
you say three words,"
"You lose," answered the Presi
FIREMAN HURTS FOOT.
Tait J. Garman, fireman on the
local branch train, met with quite a
serious accident Wednesday evening
when doing some work on the en
gine. He was preparing to take a
collar off a shaft, when the gear
slipped, catching his left foot be
tween the gear and guard. The foot
was smashed and cut on the right
of the instep. He was brought to
the office of Dr. McMurdo, who
dressed his injuries, it requiring
several stitches to close the wound
in the foot No bones were broken.

RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT.

While on . the way into Heppner
last evening, when some nine miles
out on the highway, the lights of
his car went out suddenly, and Geo.
Fell landed in the ditch. After
making an investigation and find
ing that no damage had been done,
and being unable to repair the
lights, he decided to drive on into
Heppner, which he did, but found it
a slow process.
Sharp reductions ta estimated pro
duction of alfalfa and tweet clover

Market Review of the O. S. A. C.
Extension Service. Turkey market
ing; is becoming: active with prices
variable. The demand for feeder
cattle and lambs is not so keen In
corn states as earlier this year.
Corvallis, Oregon, November 19,
1928. Bread Grain. The world and
domestic wheat markets were gener
ally steady last week and soft red
winter wheat advanced at St Louis.
Sharp reductions were made in the
official estimates of the Canadian
crop and there is a large amount of
low quality wheat because of frost
damage. Reports from the south
ern hemisphere were also less fa
vorable for the wheat crop. Rye
markets were firm.
Feed Grain. All feed grains were
steady to higher last week. Some
reduction in the Canadian barley
estimate and Improved demand
from Europe strengthened that
grain. New corn receipts were
Hay and Feed. The official esti
mate of the hay crop remained un
changed on November 1. Markets
continue about steady with choice
alfalfa tending to advance some
what Feeds were about steady.
Alfalfa meal is inclined to advance.
Cottonseed cake and linseed meal
were almost firm at the higher level
of prices reached in recent weeks
although the supply of cottonseed
is somewhat larger than a year ago.
Seeds. The alfalfa seed crop is
reported 15 to 20 per cent smaller
than was expected about September
25. Growers cut fewer acres than
they originally intended and the
yield was not as good as expected.
The preliminary report Indicated
only about 65 per cent as much al
falfa seed as last year, therefore it
seems certain that the alfalfa crop
will be very small. The sweet clo
ver seed crop has also turned out
much poorer than expected. Dam
age by frost and heavy rains has
cut down the production of sweet
clover seed 50 per cent compared
to what was expected in September
and the United States production of
this seed may be only about one-
third of the 127 crop. Sweet clover
seed is moving rapidly irom grow
ers' hands at advancing prices. Un
certainty regarding the amount of
foreign red clover seed which may
be imported and low quotations on
this seed from France were factors
in causing dullness and some price
decKne in terminal clover seed mar
kets last week. On the whole, how
ever, there is an unusual scarcity of
good domestic grass and clover seed
this yeas and farmers who must buy
such seeds are being warned by the
United States Department of Agri
culture to look after their needs
Dairy Products, Butter markets
were firm to higher in the west but
barely steady in the east last week.
The situation reflects conditions for
production. Storage stocks are low
on the Coast and less than a year
ago for the whol ecountry, but the
tendency has been toward increas
ing stocks in eastern states as com
pared to last year's trend, with pro
duction again running ahead of the
same period in 1927. Cheese mar
kets are steady to firm although
there is evidence of increasing the
large storage holdings whereas last
year decreases were made at this
time of year.
Poultry and Eggs. Although the
egg market situation seems to be a
little firmer and prices may advance
seasonally somewhat in the next
