Mr. Sara Moar.. Niece of Henry
Heppner, Dies in California;
Visited Here In Nineties.
Los Angees, Calif, June 19. In
the death of Mrs. Sara Moar here
last week the Pacific Northwest
lost one of its pioneer mothers.
Mrs. Moar was a native California!!,
but spent much of her life in Idaho
and Oregon. She was a member
of a pioneer family that had much
to do wtih the development of this
western country. Mrs. Moar was
a sister of the late Phil Cohn, a
niece of Henry Heppner, one of the
founders of Heppner, and a niece
of Mrs. Henry Blackman. Henry
Blackman was a pioneer merchant
of Heppner and a prominent figure
in state democratic poitics. She is
the aunt of Harold and Henry Cohn
of Heppner.
Mrs. Moar often visited Heppner
in the nineties, dividing her time
between the home of her brother
Phil and "Aunt Fanny," as Mrs.
Blackman was known to her im
mediate family. She was person
ally and well acquainted with many
of the old time families of Morrow
While Mrs. Moar was a native
of California, born in Shasta coun
ty in 1872, with her husband she
went to Boise City, Idaho, as
young woman, where he practised
his profession of dentistry. Dr.
Moar died several years ago and
since his death she had made her
home in southern California. Her
life spanned a greater part of the
period in which the Pacific coast
states were settled and developed,
Her death came after a linger
ing illness at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. Kenneth Yoakam,
36S N. Rexford Drive, Beverly,
Thursday, June 15. Funeral ser.
vices were conducted Saturday at
the R. E. Dayotin chapel, Beverly
Hills, with Dr. R. M. Donaldson
officiating. Immediate members of
the family attending the services
were Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Yoak
am, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Magaw,
Mr. and Mrs. Harry C. Bren and
Mr. and Mrs. Heppner Blackman,
In addition to the daughter, Mrs,
Moar is survived by two sisters.
Mrs. C. H. Magaw of Holtsville,
Cal., and Mrs. William Stark of
Boise; two brothers, Jerry Cohn
and Dr. Jacob Cohn of Boise. Jerry

The corn and cotton states will
afford the greatest increased out
let for Oregon seed crops, Jackman
believes. The corn states are all
clover states except Texas, and all
use orchard grass, tall oat gras3,
white clover, meadow fescue, Eng
lish rye grass and other crops of
which seed is grown in western
Oregon. The cotton states will
probably develop an unprecedent
ed demand for hairy vetch, crim
son clover and Austrian peas.
Four County Girls Busy
At 4-H Summer School
Oregon State College, Corvallis,
June 21. Four members of the 4-H
clubs of Morrow county are among
the 550 club boys and girls and 40
leaders completing a busy two-
weeks junior summer session here
on this compus. Though the total
enrollment is slightly lower than
usual this year for obvious reasons,
the program of work and play is
better than usual following the
club motto of always "making the
best better."
For nearly two weeks now the
delegates from Morrow county
have been following a regular
morning schedule of class work,
going in sections from building to
building on the campus, getting the
latest instructions from the regular
college faculty members on a score
of subjects ranging from the fun
damentals of livestock and crop
management for the boys and
hcmemaking for the girls, to such
interesting specialties as photog-
aphy, radio, fire prevention, jour
nalism, and music for all of them.
Once a day special speakers ap
pear before the general assemblage,
then there is an afternoon of sports
and various kinds of recreation,
followed by educational and enter
taining movies or other programs
in the evening. The group has
regularly organized system of self-
government with Stonewall Jack
son of Canby heading the boys
council and Alice Welbes of Gresh.

New Federal Profliirtinn
Credit System Arranged
Provision for farm production
credit through regional production
credit banks and local production
credit associations is the outstand
ing feature of a new law which has
passed congress, says the Oregon
Agricultural Extension service in a
review of the agricultural situation
just issued. The circular also gives
an analysis of other farm credit
and adjustment developments, and
the current trend of demand, prices
and costs of farm products.
The plan is to have the five di
visions of the new farm credit ad
ministration, each with a commis
sioner in charge under the govern
or and the deputy governors. Each
division will handle one class of
loans. The production credit com
missioner will be in charge of
twelve production credit banks, one
in each Federal Land Bank district
"The land bank commissioner
will supervise the twelve federal
land banks," the circular states
The intermediate credit commis
sioner will supervise the twelve in
termediate credit banks. The Co
operative Bank Commissioner will
administer the Central Bank for
Cooperatives and twelve regional
Cooperative Banks. And the emer
gency Credit Commissioner will su
pervise the regional Agricultural
Credit Corporations."
Local production credit associa
tions may be formed by ten or more
farmers, and a part of the capital
of local associations may be sub
scribed by the regional production
credit bank.
According to the circular the
trend of farm prices flattened out
somewhat during the past four
weeks, compared with the grand
advance during the preceding four
weeks. As things stood at mid
June, the general level of farm
prices is around ten per cent high
er than a year previous for the
whole county, and around 40 per
cent higher for the average in Ore
gon. High hop prices contributed
materially to the upswing of the
Oregon general farm price index.
Wool prices staged a remarkable
comeback and now head the list in
degree of pre-war price "parity"
with an index of 99. Wheat ad
vanced sharply, but is still far be
low "parity" with the May wheat
price index at 67 per cent of pre
war. The general level of farm
prices at 62 is still a long way from
"parity" as contemplated under the
farm act Even without any ad
vance in prices for things farmers
buy, most farm products would
have to go up around 50 per cent to
reach parity. Prospects for further
improvement are reasonably good,
says the report, but much depends
upon national and international
economic programs and developments.
Young Earwigs Ready
Poisoned Bran Dose
X Ul
Young earwigs are on the march
again in yards and gardens and just
at the best stage for effective pois
oning, says R. E. Dimlck of the
Oregon State college department of
entomology. In many localities
the ranks of the earwigs have been
greatly depleted by the ravages of
the earwig parasites that have been
liberated in Portland and many
other cities of the state, but some
supplementary poisoning at this
season before the parasites are ac
tive has been found a big help
in control.
The poison most effective is bran
12 pounds, sodium Fluosilicate 1
pound, and fish oil 1 quart, mixed
together without water. The bait
is applied thinly over the yard and
in large quantities around the base
of buildings, trees and fences,
avoiding lumps that might attract

Electricity on Farms
Making Rapid Strides
Development of more apparatus
and methods of applying electricity
profitably to agriculture was report
ed at the annual meeting of the
Oregon Committee on the Relation
of Electricity to Agriculture held
at Oregon State college the middle
of June. The work of the com
mlttee, supported by private funds.
is now starting on its tenth year in
this state. During the past nine
years most of the modern uses of
electricity in Oregon farm opera
tions have been either developed or
improved by its work.
New projects on which progress
reports were made this year Indi
cating successful development are
electric pig brooders, homemad
electric poultry brooders, use of
electric hotbeds In potato tuber in
dexing, sprinkler irrigation of pas
ture, and corn drying.
The annual meeting was presided
over by W. A. Schoenfeld, dean of
agriculture and chairman of the
committee, with reports being made
by F. E. Price, project superinten
dent, and C. J. Hurd, assistant in
agricultural engineering. The work
is coordinated closely with that of
the experiment station.

Oregon Seed Crops Vital
Farm Adjustment Move
A prospective demand for mil
lions of pounds of crested wheat
grass seed, which can be raised in
eastern Oregon, to be used on land
taken out of wheat production
through operation of the new fed
eral adjustment act, is foreseen by
h. K. Jackman, extension agrono
mist at Oregon State college.
For western Oregon Jackman
forsees an almost equally stlmulat"
ed demand for the seed crops
grown there, such as the clovers,
vetcnes and various other grass
"If the administration decides to
try to effect a reduction of 20 per
cent in wheat acreage, as has been
suggested, that will mean some
300,000 acres in the Columbia basin
aione, for which the only possibil
Ity In the long run would be seed
ing down to grass." Jackman
points out. "The only grass possl
bility is crested wheat grass, which
has proved itself so wonderfully In
the few years since its introduction
throughout eastern Oregon by the
experiment station and extension
"The same statement applies to
much of the wheat belt of Kansas,
Nebraska, the Dakotas, Oklahoma
Texas and the Intel-mountain and
Pacific Northwest states, It seems
safe to predict then that we will
have a demand for crested wheat
grass seed far In excess of the sup
ply. it is doubtful If more than
iou.uuu pounds or tnis seed was
produced In the United States last
year. It would require 3,000,000
pounds to seed the 300,000 acres in
the Columbia basin alone, using 10
pounds to the acre.
"Of course there will be other
uses made of the same land, an
even if seeded to forage crops, not
all will go into crested wheat grass
but the fact remains that If pres
ent plans continue there will be
heavy demand for years to come
