Wheat League Told How
Export Plan Has Helped
Vigorous action regarding numer
ous matters of state and national
policy affecting farming in eastern
Oregon particularly, and the state
generally to some extent, was taken
at the annual convention of the
Eastern Oregon Wheat league in its
"homecoming" session at Moro early
in December. The league was or
ganized there in 1926 as an out'
growth of the economic conference
on wheat growing sponsored by the
Oregon State college extension ser
vice. J. B. Adams of Moro, vice-president
for the past year and chairman
of the taxation committee for this
convention, was elected president
for the coming year, and Mac Hoke,
Pendleton, vice-presdent. Charles
Smith, Heppner, was reelected secretary-treasurer.
Arlington will be
the meeting place next year, as the
league renews its "swing around the
circle" of cities in the wheat belt
The meeting was the occasion for
what were considered highly sig
nificant reports by officials in charge
of government managed exports of
wheat from the northwest, and fed
eral farm credit agencies at Spo
kane. Orris Dorman, chairman of the
federal exporting board at Port
land, reported that close to eight
million bushels of grain have been
disposed of outside the country
since the exporting machinery was
set up. He said sales are being
made only at world prices and that
supplies are not being dumped
abroad as some had feared. Sales
so far have averaged about a 20
cent "drawback" or subsidy from
the government processing fund to
give growers a domestic price for
this export wheat
Dorman said he is convinced the
export plan has been responsible for
reducing the spread between Port
land and Chicago prices by at least
10 cents, and that it has kept the
Portland market at least 15 cents
above what it would otherwise have
been. He believes that this export
subsidy method, which is the first
plan closely approaching the old
grange export debenture plan ever
tried in America, is workable even
on a more national scale.
The league voted to ask continu
ance of this export plan as long as
necessary to clear out the oppress
ive surplus from this area. Careful
ly prepared committee reports were
adopted by the convention dealing
with taxation policies, farm finance
and marketing, transportation, and
production and handling.

Lowly Spuds Finally Get
Place in Vitamin Lists
Food research is bringing in
creasing respect to the common po
tato not only as a source of energy
but as a builder of red blood and a
protection against common ailments
says Miss Lucy A. Case, extension
specialist in nutrition at O. S. C.
Potatoes are now known to be a
good source of the essential vita
mins B. C. and G. tha vitamin f!
content, however beinc denenrient
on quick, short cooking. Professor
Henry C. Sherman, national nntri
tion authority, says that potatoes
are a very important source of vita
min C because of the large extent
to which they enter into the daily
dietaries of many people, and in

practice it is often largely upon po
tatoes that the adequacy of the
supply of vitamin C in low-cost
winter dietaries depends.
One might not consider that po
tatoes are much like oranges in the
diet which some homemakers buy
at a sacrifice of other necessary
items for fear of a shortage of vi
tamin C. Potatoes are eaten much
more frequently and in larger
amounts than oranges, and doubt
less the total amount of vitamin C
obtained from potatoes is as much
as the amount we take in oranges,
points out Miss Case.
Potatoes are also valuable for the
minerals iron and phosphorus, and
as an aid in maintaining the alkali
balance of the human body. In low
cost diets, where a wide variety of
vegetables and fruits is impossible,
serving potatoes twice a day Is a
desirable practice in attaining good
nutrition. Fifteen pounds a week
are recommended for a family of
parents and two children, in an ad
equate low cost diet and this amount
may even be increased.
Soaking peeled potatoes in water
before cooking causes loss of min
erals and vitamins. Very little
mineral Is lost by baking, steam
ing or boiling in their skins, but
consderable mineral Is lost by peel
ing and boiling, especially if cut
small. On the other hand, vitamin
C is largely destroyed by cooking
longer than 15 minutes. In order
to strike a balance, bake, steam or
boil potatoes whole in their coats
part of the time. Part of the time,
peel and cut them and boil rapidly.

The public is fast returning to the use
of liquid laxatives. People have
learned that the properly prepared
liquid laxative will bring a perfect
movement without any discomfort
at the time, or after.
The dose of a liquid laxative can
be varied to suit the needs of the
individual. The action can thus be
regulated. A child is easily given the
right dose. And mild liquid laxatives
do not irritate the kidneys.
Doctors are generally agreed that
senna is the best laxative for every
body. Senna is a naturql laxative. It
does not drain the system like the
cathartics that leave you so thirsty.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
liquid laxative which relies on senna
for its laxative action. It has the
average person's bowels as regular as
clockwork in a few weeks' time.
You can always get Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin at any drugstore, ready
