Real Farm Relief at Last-

GET FAIR RETURNS
Survey of 514 Oregon Farms Now
Completed for Second Yeax;
Slight Profit Shown.
Oregon dairymen may not be get
ting rich these days, but neither are
they as bad off as those in some
other farm enterprises, judging
from figures just compiled by the
farm management department at
the Oregon State college experi
ment station on the results of the
second year's survey of 514 dairy
farms in 22 Oregon counties.
Dairying paid these farmers, on
an average, five per cent on their
investment in addition to prevailing
wages for the dairyman and his
family in caring for the cows, dur
ing the year between April 1, 1930,
and April 1, 1931. The fact that
feed prices dropped even before the
big slump In dairy prices, which did
not hit hardest until early in 1931,
is responsible for the comparatively
favorable showing, say those in
charge of the survey. The work Is
being continued another year to get
data on the present situation.
Average cost of production of
butterfat for the year ending last
April was 40 cents per pound as
compared with 50 cents the year
previous. The reduction of 20 per
cent Is attributed to lower wages
and feed prices. The average price
recived for the year was 41 cents,
expressed as butterfat prices, or
just a cent above production costs
which, however, included Interest,
depreciation and wages for the fam
ily. Irrigated sections of eastern Ore
gon again led in low cost of pro
duction, the irrigated pastures and
cheap alfalfa givng farmers there
a, seven cent advantage over the
Willamette valley and 5 cents over
the famous coast dairy, sections
where year around pasture is a
Willamette valley dairymen were
favored, however, by the larger out
let for fluid milk which was sold at
prices generally higher than that
obtained for butterfat The inves
tigation is a joint project of the
farm management and dariy hus
bandry departments carried on by
H. E. Selby, A. S. Burrier and G.
W. Kuhlman of the former depart
ment, and P. M. Brandt, I. R. Jones
and R. W. Morse of the latter.

Mrs Kenneth Bleakman was
quite seriously , injured last Satur
day night when she fell through
a trap door at the Odd Fellows hall
where she had gone for the eve
ning's entertainment. Mrs. Bleak
man had just arrived there and en
tered the cloak room to hang up
her wraps. As the room was dark
she did not notice that the trap
door which leads to the hall below
had been carelessly left open. She
stepped directly into the open space
and fell some six or seven feet to
the floor below, receiving several
bruises about the head but no bro
ken bones. Dr. McMurdo was call
ed immediately, and he took her
to the hospital for treatment. Mrs.
Bleakman was brought home Sun
day. At this writing she is some

City of Detroit purchases 137 new Ford cars
Hundreds now in use prove low cost of operation
THESE 137 new Ford cars represent one
of the largest deliveries ever made to a
municipality at one time.
21 radio-equipped Ford scout cars were
traded in on this purchase. They had been
operated day and night for two years in
heavy traffic and all kinds of weather. -
Their individual records ranged from
78,434 miles to 143,723 miles with a grand
total of 2,283,097 miles. The operating
cost of the 21 cars was 2.284 cents a mile
less than 2 13 cents. This cost included
all fuel, oil, tires, repairs and every other
item except depreciation and insurance.
Of 577 Ford cars in Detroit City service,
the 300 in the Police Deparment traveled
a total of 6,591,937 miles during the past
fiscal year, at an average cost of 2.9 cents
Many claims have been made on operat
ing costs, but here in the carefully kept
motor car records of the City of Detroit is
positive proof of Ford economy.
In the paragraphs above, it is seen that
21 Ford scout cars averaged less than 2 13
cents a mile and 300 Ford cars in all
branches of Detroit police work averaged
2.9 cents a mile!
Day and night, twenty-four hours a day,
these Ford cars are in operation. Few
branches of transportation demand such
grueling service. The records show that
low fuel and oil consumption is but one of
the Ford's many economies. Ford ma
terials, simplicity of design and accuracy
in manufacturing provide unusual strength,
stamina and freedom from replacements
The individual car buyer as well as the
purchasing department of a city or a busi
ness cannot afford to ignore the proved
economy of the Ford car.
