OREGON FRUIT TO
MEET ALL TESTS
Last Chance Given to
Get Wheat Plan Money
With the deadline for signing ap
plications for wheat allotments set
forward about two weeks in many
Oregon counties, particularly west
of the mountains, those in charge
of the campaign in this state are
making a final effort to see that ev
ery wheat grower is acquainted with
the benefits that await him under
the provisions of the act, and that
he knows this is the last chance to
get an allotment for the coming two
"Indications are that many far
mers are just now realizing the fact
that this plan affords immediate
cash benefits to the individual and
that its advantages to the average
wheat grower do not depend entire
ly on future betterment of the
wheat market," says Paul V. Maris,
director of the Oregon State col
lege extension service, which is di
recting the educational and organi
zation campaign. "As .fast as this
is understood, farmers have hur
ried to get in their applications.
Extension from the first deadline
of September 25 was granted at
the request of many county organi
zations to accommodate these late
Estimates made at the end of the
first closing date were that Oregon
will ultimately turn in 6000 appli
cations covering some 800,000 seed
ed acres of wheat, Maris has re
ported to Washington. Eastern
Oregon has given quick and hearty
support to the plan, running 90 per
cent or better. Western Oregon,
with its many small acreages, has
been slower and it is doubtful if
the final signup will exceed 50 per
cent of the acreage, though nearly
an tne larger growers have ap
plied for allotments.
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace
has directetd a final warning to
growers in states that have been
slow to sign up that there is ab
solutely no prospect of bettering
tne wneat situation without pro
duction control as provided in the
allotment plan. Incomplete reports
near the end of September showed
380,472 farmers had signed appli
cations agreeing to take more than
iVi million acres out of production
in return for the cash benefit pay
ments, Wallace reported. The or
iginal goal was the retirement of
about 9 million acres from wheat
Those who sign will get the mar
ket price for three crops plus cash

Those who stay out will get only

Latest Cleaning Methods Worked
Out by O. S. C. Chemists Now
Used Throughout the State. '
Oregon apples and pears will go
to world markets this year cleaned
better than ever before and fully
meeting the new federal require
ments of an extremely low toler
ance for lead as well as other spray
residues, says R. H. Robinson, ag
ricultural chemist In the Oregon
State college experiment station.
As soon as it was learned early
this year that the new regulations
would be in effect this season, Rob
inson and other station scientists
set to work in cooperation with
growers, shipping . interests and
cleaning machinery manufacturers
to see what extra precautions, If
any, would need to be taken by
Oregon growers this year to make
sure that fruit from this state
would receive the federal O. K.
The result is the perfecting of
washing procedure which is already
in effect in the principal fruit sec
tions and which has been recorded
in permanent form in a new bulle
tin entitled, "The Removal of Lead
and Arsenic Spray Residues from
Apples and Pears," by Robinson
ana nis assistant, M. u. Hatch.
"Under moat Orppnn rtnimmB
we find that the usual hydrochloric
acia wasn as developed by the Ore
gon station some years ago is ade
auate to remove both kinds f
idue when the fruit is washed
promptly and with slightly heated
solution when necessary," says
Robinson. "Pear growers have ex
perienced little or no difficulty this
"Complications in cleaning arise
mostly through the use of oil
sprays late In the season and thru
accumulations of wax on the fruit
because of its being allowed to re
main long on the tree or to stand
long after picking before washing.
For that reason growers were ad
vised not to apply oil sprays after
July 7. Tests this year will show
