Farmers seeking loans from the
$400,000,000 emergency crop loan
fund will be directed to apply first
to the production credit association
of their respective communities, an
nounced Governor Wm. I. Myers of
the Farm Credit administration.
If the association cannot make
the loan because the applicant has
lnsutilcient collateral this will es
tablish the proof required by law
that the borrower is not eligible to
Dorrow from other sources, the gov
Rules and regulations relating to
the administration of this fund, to
gether with application forms, are
now being prepared.
It is required by the law that
borrowers as a condition to receiv
ing an emergency loan must furnish
proof of cooperation with the Ag
ricultural Adjustment administra
tion. The nature of proof of copo
eration will be similar to that re
cently announced as applicable to
other borrowers who apply for
loans under the Farm Credit ad
ministration. Each applicant must obtain clear
ance through or furnish a certifi
cate of cooperation from the coun
ty production control committee of
the Agricultural Adjustment ad
ministration. The production con
trol association will make available
lists of those who have signed acre
age control contracts. Farmers
who are on this list, if otherwise
eligible to borrow, will be able to
County councils of the production
control associations will certify to
representatives of the Farm Credit
administration the names of any
farmers who, while not signing
acreage control contracts, are co
operating by not increasing their
production contrary to the acreage
Where county councils have not
been set up, Farm Credit adminis
tration representatives will be in
structed to make no loans to farm
ers who are planning to increase
For the time being, according to
Governor Myers, the various dis
trict emergency crop loan offices
will handle the applications for
loans from the $400,000,000 fund,
and these offices will be under the
immediate direction of the Emer
gency Crop loan division, which is
placed under the supervision of the
production credit commissioner, S.
M. Garwood, and the governor.
The emergency crop loans will be
made at an interest rate of 5
Governor Myers pointed out that
the 587 production credit associa
tions chartered through Tuesday
with an aggregate authorized cap
ital of over $60,600,000, could make
available in excess of $300,000,000
of production loans to elegible farm
Associations are being organized
rapidly, he added. Before spring
the entire agricultural area of the
United States will be served by
these associations. The total amount
of production credit which can be
made available through them will
far exceed the $300,000,000 possible
from associations chartered to date.

Pacific Woolgrotvers Approved
For Handling Federa I Wools
The Pacific Wool Growers has
been approved as a marketing agen
cy for growers whose wools are
financed by the Regional Agricul
tural Credit corporation or the Fed
eral Intermediate Credit Bank units
of the Farm Credit administration,
according to wrd just received by
Garnet Barratt, Heppner, director
from this district of the Pacific as
sociation, thirteen - year - old wool

approximately 2300 western grow
ers. It maintains warehouse facil
ities in Portland, San Francisco
and Boston, and sales offices in Bos
ton as well as on the Pacific coast,
selling its members' wools direct to
The Pacific Wool Growers is one
of the first agencies to be approved
for handling 1934 wools under the
Farm Credit administration regula
tions which provide that wool from
sheep which are security for loans
received directly or indirectly thru
government agencies should not be
sold but mu3t be consigned to an
approved cooperative or dealer and
marketed in an orderly manner.
A similar program was in effect
last year, and the Pacific was one
of the agencies marketing these
government financed wools in 1933.
"A most successful year has just
been completed," says R. A. Ward,
manager of the Pacific Wool Grow
ers, "and we returned to our mem
bers prices several cents a pound
higher than wool prices during the
shearing season. Recognition by
the federal administration of the
orderly marketing program is grat
ifying to our members and direct
ors, who have been following a sim
ilar program in the selling of their

Even before the organization of
the Farm Credit administration in
1931 the Pacific was approved as an
agent to handle the wools of various
livestock loan companies and credit
corporations in the northwest.
Mr. Ward has just returned from
Washington D. C. and Boston where
he attended a meeting of the Na
tional Cooperative council, meet
ings of the National Wool Trade
association, and worked with the
association's eastern representa
tives in selling association wools.
Mr. Ward was re-elected vice-president
of the National Cooperative
council and acted as a delegate from
that organization to the newly
formed ' National Agricultural con
ference, which is a forum designed
to coordinate the activities of the
various national farm groups such
as the American Farm Bureau Fed
eration, the National Grange, the
National Cooperative council, and
The National Wool Trade asso
ciation, of which Mr. Ward is a di
rector, is also a new organization.
It is at this time working on a code
of fair practices which will govern
.wool buying practices in the United
States after it is approved by wool
growers and manufacturers' asso
ciations, and N. R. A. officials.

The World's Book of Comfort

When trouble overtakes us; when
the grave covers our dead, and we
wander aimlessly In the darkened
household, grieving "for the touch
of a vanished hand, and the sound
of a voice that is still," it is in the
Word of God, the Bible, that we
find peace and comfort.
In times of sorrow and affliiction
the Bible is peculiarly adapted to
our needs. It teaches us to say:
"God is our refuge and strength;
a very present help in trouble." It
assures us that, "Our light afflic
tion, which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more exceed
ing and eternal weight of glory."
The Bible reminds us, "Let not your
heart be troubled; in My Father's
house are many mansions." If we
are ready and willing to walk with
God here, there will be room in
plenty for us all yonder in heaven
and above all, in the great heart of

these, to read the Bible, believe it,

Seed Treatment Prevents
Early Peas From Rotting
Treatment of early planted gar
den pea seed with Semesan, an or
ganic mercury compound, has been
found to insure a markedly higher
germination and increased vigor
of the plants, in experiments car
ried on by the vegetable crops de
partment at Oregon State college,
Poor germination of peas plant
ed in cold, wet soil in spring, or
subjected to such conditions after
planting, is caused mostly by rots
induced by molds. Even where the
plant is not entirely destroyed, the
growth may be seriously impaired,
say the experiment station spec
Tests carried on under controlled
conditions of temperature and
moisture showed that the average
germination of treated seed under
favorable conditions was 90 per cent
compared with only 28 per cent
among the untreated lots. Later
growth records showed the treated
lots to average from 100 to 350 per
cent better than those untreated.
The treatment is simple and ec
onomlcal, costing only about a cent
for each pound of seed where large
lots are treated. A small quantity
of the dust equal to seven times the
size of a pin head is enough for the
ordinary 10 cent packet of seed.
Seed and powder are shaken to
gether several minutes to insure
complete coating. A full discussion
of the college experiments may be
had in a free Circular of Informa
tion, No. 90.
U. O. Professor's Work
Aids Lawyers of State
Eugene. Work on annotation of
the law of contracts with Oregon
cases, a project undertaken four
years ago by Charles G. Howard,
professor of law at the University
of Oregon, has progressed to a point
where it is now of great value to
lawyers of the state, it was an
nounced by Wayne L. Morse, dean
of the school of law.
The project Involves the examin
ation of cases wherein the law of
contracts is involved in the Oregon
Supreme court, and the determin
ation of what extent the common
law of contracts agrees with or
differs from the American Law
Institute's restatement in this field.
Clarity and uniformity in the com

which was formed to promote the
cooperative study of relations of all
countries bordering on the Pacific.
The Institute meets every two years
to hear reports and results of re

clearing house of information is
also maintained by the organiza

Most Seed Crop Yields
To pasture or not to pasture seed
crops in the spring of the year is
frequently a question hard for a
farmer to decide. Opinions differ
and experimental results are ad
mittedly incomplete, says the farm
crops department at Oregon State
Observation and experiments,
however, have convinced those who
have studied the case that under
Oregon conditions it does not pay
to pasture crops in the spring to be
used for seed, with the possible ex
ception of rye grass and red clover.
In general spring pasturing reduces
yields by retarding maturity, in
creasing the susceptibility to dis
ease and insects and damaging the
soil by puddling.
