Those Who Sign up for Acreage
Control to Beoeive Cash by
Actual cash benefits to Oregon
farmers who contract with the gov
ernment to cooperate in a national
plan of agricultural adjustment
will be paid early this fall, proba
bly by September 15, according to
details of tne wneat adjustment
policy received by the Oregon
State college extension service.
Wheat has been selected as one of
the two first basic surplus com
modities to which acreage control
will be applied, cotton now being
included under a land rental plan.
The domestic allotment plan has
been definitely decided upon as the
most practical for immediate use
and will now be applied as a three,
year program, acocrding to word
from Washington. Decentralized
admjninistration has) also been
worked out, intended to make the
plan practically self-executing with
in each county.
In putting the plan into effect,
the farm act administration will
first determine the average amount
of wheat consumed as food in this
country in the five year period of
1928-1932. Every wheat producing
state will then be "allotted" a
share of this domestic production
on the basis of the proportion of
the total United States crop it pro
duced during the same five years.
Next, every wheat prducing county
within the state will be allotted a
share on the same basis.
This amount of wheat will be
that on which benefit payments will
be made. It is pointed out that
these proportions are worked out
on a national basis and allotments
will be made without regard to the
ultimate disposition of any partic
ular block of wheat
Disposition of wheat by the
grower, as a matter of fact, is no
concern of the agricultural adjust
ment administration under this
plan. Once the farmer complies
with the other provisions of the
contract, it is entirely up to him
where or when he sells his wheat,
or whether he sells it at all or not.
Acreage control is the fundamen
tal feature of the new plan, and
every farmer must sign a contract
to reduce his acreage, if called up
on, by a specified amount not to ex
ceed 20 per cent The exact amount
may not be determined until after
it is seen if an international agree
ment among the wheat exporting
countries for acreage reduction can
Application of the organization
plans in counties may be started in
July. Wheat growers In each coun
ty will form their own associations
for administering the plan and will
elect their own officers.
Each wheat farmer will be as
signed his share of the "benefit
wheat" for his county, the propor
tion being determined on the basis
of his average production for the
last THREE YEARS. To join the
plan, which is entirely voluntary,
he contracts to reduce his acreage
for 1934 by the amount specified,
and sow his quota to wheat in a
workmanlike manner. On comple
tion of the contract he will be eli
gible to receive two-thirds of his
allotment benefits, the remaining
third to be paid when he gives
proof next spring that the reduc
tion has actually been made.
Just how much these benefits will
be is yet to be finally determined,
but the plan is to make them
enough so that added to the actual
market price of wheat they will
bring the total return per bushel
on this domestic proportion of the
nation's wheat crop up to the pre
war parity with prices of things
the farmer buys. The cost is to be
paid from a processing tax of about
30 cents a bushel on all domestic
Regional work has already been
started toward putting the plan in
to effect here in the west and as
soon as further steps are decided
upon, notification will be given
through the state extension ser
vices which are being used to the
fullest extent possible by the ag
ricultural adjustment administra
tion in order to avoid setting up
costly duplicating organizations.
Educational Trucks Visit
Emergency Forest Camps
Two cooperative forestry educa
tional trucks, known to the forest
service as "showboats," have just
started out on a summers cam
paign of carrying to the President's
Emergency Conservation Work
camps a program of forestry edu
cational motion pictures and lan
tern slide talks, according to an
nouncement of regional forester C,
J. Buck of Portland.
The "showboats" are two trucks
equipped with electric light plant,
motion, picture projectors, lantern
slide machine, silver screen, movie
reels, and all other necessary ac
cessories. The Oregon "showboat"
has been In service on cooperative
forestry educational work for the
past six years, and Is one of the
pioneer forestry educational trucks
In America, the Washington truck
modeled after the Oregon vehicle,
has been equipped to meet the de
mands for such work In the peace
time camps of the forest corps.
The project Is In charge of Geo
E. Griffith, assistant In public re
lations in the regional ofnc& The
Oregon truck will be manned by
W. V. Fuller and A. G. Jackson
The crew of the Washington truck
consists of Albert Wlesendanger
and N. J. Penick. All of these men
are experienced in forestry as well
as in public program work
The Oregon truck started on the
Mount Hood camps Tuesday, June
6, and will cover the camps of the
13 Oregon national forests by pro
gresslve travel. The Washington
truck started Monday, June 12, on
the Columbia national forest, cov-
tional forests in Washington pro
gressively. According to the announcement
the programs will be designed to
build up the morale of the men and
give them a pride in their work, by
explaining the monumental import
ance of forestry in the local and
national picture, and the relation
ship of the work the men are doing
to the general problems of reforest
ation and forest protection. The
foresters consider it the best kind
of training in citizenship.
Home Seed Supply Started
Prineville Because of the con

beardless barley for hay, most of
the Crook county crop is harvest
ed for that purpose, and it has been
necessary each year to import seed.
This year, however, H. W. Flowers
and Vernon Eldridge of the Ocho
co project have agreed to cooper
ate with County .Agent W. B. Tuck
er in starting a home supply by
harvesting seed instead of hay.
