ful comedy in three acts, "All of a

tinct contrast to the young and im

Advantages of Barley Are
Told by Crops Specialist
Barley production has been stead
ily Increasing in western Oregon
and just as steadily decreasing in
eastern Oregon over the last 20
years, a comparison on census fig
ures made by D. D. Hill, associate
agronomist at the Oregon Experi
ment station, shows.
In 1929 western Oregon produced
more than a million bushels of bar
ley, after a steady Increase in acre
age that was most noticeable in the
last 10 years. In eastern Oregon,
on the other hand, the census shows
that in 1909 there were 100,000 acres
of barley grown, while in 1929 this
had shrunk to 43,000 acres, though
the total cereal acreage east of the
mountains had Increased close to
Mr. Hill points out that there Is
now considerable Interest, and
rightly so, in feeding cheap wheat
to livestock. On the other hand,
if grain is to be grown expressly
for this livestock, Mr. Hill calls at
tention to the fact that in both
eastern and western Oregon barley
will normally produce more pounds
of feed per acre than wheat
"For example, at Moro, Marlout
barley will outyleld Hybrid 128
wheat," says Hill. At the Union
station Trebi barley beats the best
wheat, and at Pendleton figures
show Trebi outyielding the best
wheat by 300 pounds per acre. In
western Oregon barley will beat
either wheat or oats on fertile, well
drained upland soil.
"Feeding trials with barley and
corn show that 100 pounds of barley
is equal to 90 to 95 pounds of corn.
But the corn usually shipped in
here from the east usually arrives
with 15 to 18 per cent moisture,
while barley often has a moisture
content of 8 to 9 per cent, so that
it equals corn pound for pound In

The bedrock of Camel popularity is
the inherently fine quality of the tobaccos
that go into our cigarette.
These tobaccos are notably mild, full
mellow, delicately flavored by nature
the finest Turkish and mild, sun-ripened
Domestic tobaccos that money can buy.
To safeguard the essential goodness of
these fine tobaccos we exercise every
care to conserve their natural moisture
and natural flavors.
They are never parched or toasted
the Reynolds method of scientifically
applying heat guarantees against that.
That's why we say Camels are made
fresh to start with and why the Camel
Humidor Pack can bring them fresh to
you, in prime smoking condition.
If you want to know what a blessing
that means in unalloyed smoke -enjoyment,
switch to Camels for just one day
then leave them if you can.
