Irrigating Methods May
Conserve Moisture, Crops
In this year of water shortage in
many irrigation systems east of the
Cascades, and a considerable num
ber of new irrigators west of the
mountains, careful attention to the
frequency and amount of irrigation
may serve to conserve both crops
and water, says M. R, Lewis, U. S.
D. A. irrigation engineer in the
soils department at Oregon State
It is an old rule of irrigation that
if one waits until the crop shows
real need of irrigation it is too late
to do the most good with the water.
Lewis modifies this a bit but says
that even though one does watch
for signs of the need of irrigation
in the crop, it is always bad prac
tice to wait till the crop is suffering.
"Any setback to an irrigated crop
because of water shortage will mean
a reduced yield at the end of the
season," says Mr. Lewis. "It is prob
able that irrigation is delayed too
long moie often than applied too
soon. Most over-irrigation is due
to the use of too much water at a
single irrigation than to too fre
Type of soil, nature of the crop,
size and rate of growth of the crop
and the climatic conditions all af
fect the time and frequency of irri
gation, making it impossible to set
any hard and fast rule for all cases.
Sandy soils often need irrigation
once a week in the peak of the
season. Loam soils in garden crops
may need watering every 10 to 15
days. Alfalfa or orchards on deep
soil, on the other hand, may not
need irrigation oftener than every
three to four weeks even in the hot
test part of the summer, says Lew
is. Actual soil moisture records are
the surest way of telling when to
irrigate but in the absence of these
the best way is to watch the crops,
he says. The occasional weeds in
an orchard are good indicators.
When they flourish there Is ample
moisture, but when they start to
wilt the trees will need water.
Field crops such as alfalfa will
first turn bluish or a darker green
when needing water, and before
they wither. Sugar beets and corn
frequently wither in the daytime
even when fairly well supplied with
moisture, but if the curling con
tinues at night they are really
Oregon Cities League
Gets $7500 for Work
Eugene, Ore. A grant of $5,000
for this year and $2500 for next
year, to be used to carry on the
present state-wide program of ser
vice and research, has been receiv
ed from the Spellman foundation
by the League of Oregon Cities, it
was announced here by Herman
Kehrll, executive secretary of the
league and director of the Univer
sity of Oregon bureau of municipal
research and service. News of the
grant was received In a letter to
O. R. Bean, city commissioner of
Portland and president of the lea
The work of the league in this
state, which has attracted national
attention during the past year, was
outlined before Sptllman founda
tion officials recently in Berkeley,
California, by an Oregon commit
tee consisting of Cris Schuebel, city
attorney and J. L. Franzen, city
manager, of Oregon City; Mr. Bean,
Mr. Kehrli, and W. M. Briggs, field
consultant for the league.
Previous to this grant the league
has already received notice that a
grant of $2500 had been made by
the American Municipal associa
tion. These grants, together with
financial support accorded by mem
bers, will make possible a varied
program of activities for the future.
A meeting of the league was held
recently in Eugene and marked suc
cess has been accorded several re
gional sessions held in various parts

To Increase Capital of
Federal Bank, Spokane
The capital structure of the Fed
eral Intermediate Credit bank of
Spokane is to be increased by $5,
803,000, W. E. Mayer, president,
announced yesterday. Two million
dollars will represent additional
capital stock and $5,803,000 paid-in
surplus. This brings the capitul
structure of the Spokane Intermed
iate Credit bank which serves the
four Pacific northwest states to ap
The funds will be invested in gov
esnment securities and consequent
ly increase the bank's earning pow
er. The appropriation will tend to
maintain the highly favorable mar
ket for intermediate credit bank
debentures. This favorable market
made possible the existing low in
terest rate of 2 per cent charged by
the bank as of May 16, the lowest
rate in its history. The bank's
reduction brought about the low
ering to 5 per cent of the interest
rate charged farmers by the new
production credit associations serv
ing Washington, Montana, Oregon
The appropriation represents the
Spokane bank's share of $25,000,000
recently called from the treasury
by Governor W. L Myers of the
Farm Credit administration to in
crease the capital and surplus of
the 12 Federal Intermediate Credit
The source of this sum is the $40,-
000,000 revolving fund created by
an act of congress, approved on
January 31, 1934, for the purpose of
providing the intermediate credit
banks with the additional capital
demand necessary to enable them
to meet the increased demands for
agricultural production and mar
Following the additions and
changes in the capital structures of
the 12 intermediate credit banks,
their combined capital will be $70,-
000,000 and their surplus, reserves
and undivided profits will be in ex
cess of $15,340,000.
Modern Farm Implements
Show Great Improvement
Many farmers who expect yearly
improvements in automobiles and
trucks may not realize that mod

equal improvement from year to
