Save Money on Plowing,
Says Jackman of O.S.C.
Among new ways for Oregon far
mers to cut down cash expenses in
operations this year, E. R. Jack-
man, farm crops extension special
ist at O. S. C, mentions particu
larly the possibility of saving In
"Plow shallow," says Jackman,
"particularly if you use tractor
plowing this spring, as the deeper
you plow the more money it costs.
This may sound like agricultural
heresy, but results at the experi
ment station show that if you disk
first then five-inch plowing results
in yields exactly as good as 8 to 11
For eastern Oregon farmers he
makes a similar suggestion by
pointing out that by disking all the
stubble first one can then take his
time about getting it plowed and
thus save putting out cash for hired
"If I couldn't afford to hire help
I'd disk all the land and then come
back and plow it extending the
plowing into June if necessary,"
says Jackman. "June plowing if the
land is disked first isn't so bad. It
is not as good as April plowing, but
it beats June plowing without disk
ing and beats it badly."

The Wise Counsellor declares that the man who "sits tight" wait
ing for the depression to leave will more likely than not find him
self holding nothing but the sack when that time comes for he
is doing the very thing to prolong the condition he desires to avert.
No waving of wagic wand is going to bring better times... They
will be had only through redoubled effort by thte majority of the
people. Economy is necessary. But an economy program which
includes curtailing of the greatest force in merchandising AD
VERTISING is certain to defeat the purpose of such a program.
Advertising is more necessary now than ever before, because
people must be convinced of the value of things before they buy
And again the greatest advertising opporunity in years is
present as probably never before were merchants able to offer
such attractive bargains... Today the purchaser's dollar is worth
$1.79 in the value of the merchandise it will buy, affording
