OUTLOOK FOR BEEF
EXPECTED PRICE DECLINE
NOT TO REACH LOW FOR
1321 TO 1928.
The beef cattle outlook remains
good for producers who are already
in the business on a well organized
basis, with ample fe d in sight On
the other hand. Oregon producers
starting new herds or increasing
their present herds may well bear
in mind that breeding stock is high
in price and that feed in many lo
calities is limited, says the Septem
ber 10 report of the Oregon Agricul
tural college and U. S. Department
of Agrciu'.ture cooperative report
In the 1929 Mid-Summer Cattle
Outlook, the Bureau of Agricultural
Economics of the United States De
partment of Agriculture reports
that "cattle and calf slaughter in
1930 probably will not be greatly
different from that of 1928 and 1929.
Some increase is to be expected,
however, in 1931 and 1932. . . . The
estimated number of cattle and
calves on farms changed but little
during 1928, births and importations
about offsetting slaughter and death
losses. With total slaughter this
year somewhat less, and importa
tions about as large, some increase
in numbers may result
. "The increase in cattle numbers
seems to be taking place in the prin
cipal cattle states of the Corn Belt
area. Records of movements into
that area show that in-shipments
through markets for 12 months end
ing June, 1929, were 160,000 head
larger than for the preceding 12
months, and that marketings from
that area for the nine months, Oc
tober, 1928, to June, 1929, decreased
850,000 head from the same period
a year earlier. Undoubtedly the
possibilities for expansion are larg
er in the states of this area than
elsewhere. Unless there is a re-1
duction in sheep numbers in the
western states, the possibilities for
expansion of cattle numbers there
are limited. This situation applies
to a larg area in Texas. Present
indications are that the increase in
cattle numbers during the next six
years will be less rapid than that
which occurred from 1912 to 1918,
when production was stimulated by
war conditions, and numbers in
creased from fifty-five million to
seventy-one million head.
"Although some decline from the
present high level of cattle prices
is to be expected within the next
three years, there seems little pos
sibility that this decline will carry
prices to the low levels prevailing
from 1921 to 1926. . . . Suppliers of
cattle available for slaughter during
the next 12 months are expected to
equal those of the past year. While
marketings of cattle this fall prob
ably will differ little from those of
the fall of 1928, the proportion going
for slaughter may be larger. Early
marketings probably will be smaller

No matter how much you have
read and heard about the necessity
for preventing bad cases of sun
burn and tan, the chances are that
this month finds you with at least
minor discolorations and probably
And now as you begin to plan
your new fall wardrobe you are
realizing that however becoming
tan may be on the beach and with
summer frocks, it is not the most
becoming complexion with the for
mal styles and colors of fall.
Will you bleach, then? It is one
sure way to be certain of a skin
that looks lovely with any color at
any time during the coming season.
For remember, if you do wish to be
tan with some colors you can al
ways wear a gypsy powder!
The bleach you use will depend
upon the result you wish to obtain.
In the first place, there are all va
rieties of tan to contend with, from
the light golden to the deep copper
bronze, which usually remains well
into the winter months.
For a mild tan try the following
recipes: Make an infusion of par
sley and horseradish and apply it
to the skin. Horseradish infusion
is made by pouring a cup of boiling
water on two tablespoons of fresh
ly ground horseradish. Parsley In
fusion is maOe in the same way.
Cool, strain, mix them and use to
gether. To remove a deep tan try this
stronger preparation: Mix mag
nesia and rosewater into a paste.
Leave it on the skin from 15 to 20
minutes and wash off with water
softened with oatmeal or almond
meal. The oatmeal may be thrown
loose into the water or tied into a
little cheesecloth bag.
If you are still suffering from the
irritation or sunburn, bathe with
lime water and olive oil to which a
small portion of boric acid is added.
Use one part of lime water to two
parts of oil, adding about five per
cent boric acid.
For severe cases of freckles and
tan that do not respond to this
treatment, procure a reputable
freckle or bleaching cream and use
according to direction.
Kohl-rabi is cooked much the
same way as the turnip, but is more
delicate in flavor.

than those of last winter. No mark
ed change in the present active
demand for beef is anticipated. De
mand for stocker and feeder cattle,
however, is not likely to equal the
unusually strong demand prevailing
in the summer of 1928. The season
al trends of cattle prices are ex
pected to be more nearly normal
than those of the fall and winter
The hay crop is normal in some
Oregon localities but very short in
others. On the average it will be
somewhat below normal. The carry
over of hay is practically nothing.
On account of dry weather, grass
is in most cases a bit short and
stock may have to go into the win
ter somewhat earlier than usual
and not in too good condition. Other
parts of the northwest, particularly
Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and the
Dakotas are drier and shorter of
feed than Oregon. The constant
tendency throughout the past seven
years to increase the number of
sheep is also increasing pressure on
our feed supply. With the present
small numbers of cattle the feed
supply for the coming winter should
be sufficient at least for a normal
winter, but feed conditions are not
such as to justify expansion.
FAIR IS ENLARGED
Hermiston, Ore., Sept 18. Prep
arations are reaching completion

to be submitted for Inspection.

association is sponsoring a contest
for the general exhibits of food
cooked with honey, and the live
stock division will give special
awards for Guernseys. Over $1500
in cash will be divided among the
farmers in the various divisions.
Many have entered livestock exhib
its and all indications point to the
most successful year in the history
of the fair.
Arrangements have been made
with Shield-Clark Flying service for
an airplane and experienced pilot
to be here for the show. The air
plane will be equipped to take up
passengeis at a nominal fee, and a
parachute jumper and wing walker
will be here to provide some inter
esting stunts for the crowds.

Legion will be in charge of all con
cessions, and a merry-go-round will
