TO BE IMPROVED
Annual Outlook Report Forsees
Gradual Betterment from the
Many New Deal Flans.
A prospective increase in raw ma
terials prices Including farm com
modities, better and cheaper credit
and less unemployment with con
sequent better demand for farm
products, are forseen as likely de
velopments in 1934 in the first of
the agricultural situation and out
look reports for this year just is
sued by the economists of the Ore
gon State College extension service.
This issue, which is the annual
review and outlook number put out
at the start of each year, has been
prepared by L. R. Breithaupt, ex
tension agricultural economist, as
sisted by A. S. Burrier, associate,
and H. H. White, assistant econo
mists. It is now ready for distri
bution through any county agent
or direct from Corvallis.
Total supply of agricultural pro
ducts for the ensuing year is ex
pected to be less but no great im
provement in export demand is for
seen at present, hence any mater
ial improvement in the economic
position of agriculture must come
largely from improvement in the
home market, the report points out.
Home demand, moreover, depends
on the continued flow of income to
industrial workers, hence any Im
provement in business conditions
should be reflected in agricultural
betterment, even though It brings
some advance in farm labor costs
and prices of farm supplies.
The new year starts out with
farm prices 14 points above the low
level reached early in 1933, though
it is not equally distributed to all
branches of agriculture. Farm pur
chasing power is not comparably
improved because of the advance
in prices of things farmers buy.
Complete application of the AAA
programs and other projects de
signed to adjust production to the
probable demand, are expected to
balance the temporary disadvant
age to agriculture of the price ad
vances under the NRA and similar
movements the review sets out
The review is illustrated with
charts, graphs and tables which
help give a complete but easily un
derstood picture of the agricultural
business outlook as the new season
starts. It also contains suggestions
and aids to farmers In making out
operating budget and keeping farm
accounts so as to put their enter
prise on a strictly business basis.
Changed for County
Inasmuch as the re-licensing of
Oregon motor vehicle operators in
the eastern part of the state has
been almost completed, it has been
deemed advisable to combine the
two eastern Oregon traveling ex
aminers' territories so that they
might be more economically oper
ated, announced Hal E. Hoss, sec
retary of state, this week. For this
reason, a new schedule has been
drafted which will be handled by
C. M. Bentley, examiner.
Effective February 1st, the ex
aminer will be on duty at Heppner
once every four weeks, beginning
Saturday, February 24th, 1934. He
will return on Saturday, March 24th,
and continue on this basis until
further notice. The hours will be
from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. and the lo
cation will remain at the courthouse.
Movies and Slide Sets
Used Widely in Oregon
Corvallis Visual aid material
from the state system of higher ed
ucation was used by schools, clubs,
granges and other organizations In
more counties this year than ever
before, according to the annual re
port just issued by U. S. Burt, head
of the department of visual Instruc
tion in the general extension division.
Moving picture films, slide sets,
charts and other visual aid mater
ials are all sent out now from a
single office on the Oregon State
college campus. Under this unified
plan, the budget for the work has
been cut from more than $10,000 a
year to less than $5000 a year.
The consolidated library now In
cludes 316 motion picture films and
790 glass and film slide sets, mak
ing it one of the finest visual aid
libraries in the United States, the
report shows. The smallest service
fee in effect .anywhere, ranging
from 10 to 25 cents a set, Is the only
charge made for the use of this vast
store of Interesting educational ma
terial, A recent express company
ruling allows the return of such
material at half the out-going rate.
Last year more than 250,000 per
sons viewed materials from the vls
ual aid library at meetings or
classes held in 30 Oregon counties.
Requests also came from five other
states for materials,
Blasting Drain Ditches
Has Limited Application
Digging drainage ditches with
dynamite is usually an economical
method only where a tractor or
team cannot be used, but in such
places the work can be done quick
ly and well at fairly reasonable
cost, says Art King, extension soils
specialist at Oregon State college.
Methods of blasting ditches have
changed greatly In the last few
years, since the passing of the sur
plus low powered war explosives,
says King. Now the accepted prac
tice is to use dynamite running 50
to 60 percent nitro-glycerine. Sin
gle sticks of this kind are put in
the ground along the line of pro
posed ditch, and placed shallow in
stead of three to four feet under
ground, as was beat with the slow
When properly placed in wet
ground, such a charge may be set
ofT by firing a single stick with a
cap, King explains. The result Is
a ditch 3 to 4 feet deep and 8 to
12 feet wide, costing from 6 to 10
cents a foot. The wetter the ground
the better the job. In fact, some
standing water is no handicap.
Mr. King does not recommend
home use of this method unless the
aid of the county agent or other ex
perienced person is obtained. Blast
ed ditches are used only where run
ning water will keep them open, and
not for collecting seepage.
U. of O. Students Write
Early Oregon Stories
Eugene. Since this is the "Dia
mond Jubilee" year of statehood
for Oregon, University of Oregon
students In jounalism have pre
pared a number of stories for news
papers that will be appropriate for

nounced by Eric W. Allen, dean.
The stories cover many fields and

the Hub of Southern Oregon," by
Paul Ewing; "How Oregon Lived
in its First Statehood Year," by R.
R. French; "Indians Were Quiet
When Statehood Came," and "En
tire Northwest Fights the Indian,"
by Ernest Rae, and "How Oregon
Pioneers Started their Schools,"
and "How Higher Education Ar
rived in Oregon," by Lenore Wells.

can be obtained by writing to the
school of journalism at the univer
sity, or to the Oregon State Edi
torial association office In Eugene.

Two non-advertisers manufactured practically the
same kind of rat traps, costing 1 5 cents each, which were
sold to thte trade at 20 cents, the purchaser paying 30 cents.
One of the producers decided to advertise. His in
creased sales enabled him to make the traps for 1 Oc each.
He then sold them to the trade for 1 5 cents. The purchaser
bought them at 25 cents. Who paid fo the advertising?
Not the maker of the rat traps, because he made more
money, by selling more traps. Not the retailer, for he made
the same profit on less outlay. Not the purchaser, because
he bought for five cents less. Who paid for the advertis
ing? Why, the fellow who didn't advertise, and the dumed
rats with their lives, on account of the large increase in the
use of traps.
