Drouth Ups Farm Prices;
Fruit Crop Near Normal
Some improvements in the gen
eral level of farm prices has result
ed from the droughty conditions
now involving nearly the entire
central and western portions of the
United States, according to a review
of the agricultural situation just
released by the office of the exten
sion economist at Oregon State col
lege. Grains, hay, cotton and dairy
products especially have increased
in price because of the prospect for
smaller supplies of these commod
ities. Well-established meat ani
mals have also tended to increase in
price, says the report, but this is
counter-balanced by lower prices
and heavy marketings of poor qual
ity stock from droughty areas.
The sixteen north central and
western states, in which small
grains, hay pastures and ranges
have been most seriously damaged,
contain about 46 per cent of the
nation's hay and pasture-consuming
animals and about 54 per cent of
the hogs. From these states come
a large proportion of the total mar
ket supply of livestock. Normally
much of the thin, unfinished stock
arriving at markets are returned
to the country for further grazing
and finishing but recently, says the
report, demand for these stackers
and feeders has been greatly cur
tailed by shortage of hay and feed
grains, both present and potential.
Fruit crop prospects cannot be
accurately measured as yet, but, ac
cording to the report. United States
production does not seem likely to
fall much below last year and, not
more than 10 per cent below aver
age. The pear crop, estimated on
June 1 at 21,425,000 bushels, is a
little larger than the short crop of
last year but about 5 per cent less
than average. Although Oregon
has an estimated crop of 2,740,000
bushels, which is about a million
bushels less than average, the three
Pacific coast states are expected to
produce in excess of 15 million bu
shels, or about an average crop.
Eastern states have poor pear pros
pects. Oregon, on June 1, had a condi
tion of apples somewhat better than
a year previous and about the same
as the 10-year average, but pros
pects for the United States gener
ally are much below average.
Students Labor to Make
Own Way Thru College
At least $40,000 was earned by
men and women during the past
school year from jobs obtained thru
the student employment offices at
Oregon State college, according to
the annual report made by those In
charge. Most of this was from
more or less steady positions where
students earned either board or
room or both, though much was
from more than 2000 calls for part
Men were willing to undergo a
great degree of privation to remain
in college, just as parents In many
instances made exceptional sacri
fices to keep children there, the re
port of Mrs. Lulu Howard, men's
employment secretary, shows.
Many men batched, even after
some board and room could be had
for $15 a month, as they said they
got by on $7 a month cash outlay
by getting farm produce from home.
Several mothers cooperated in op
erating a house for their children,
taking turns cooking, and in bring
ing supplies from home.

Clubbers End Big Time;
More Adults at Session
The Four-H club summer session
broke all records for numbers at
Oregon State college and the regu
lar adult session showed an early
increase of 100 students over the
low point of a year ago, which col
lege officials point to as an indica
tion of the lightening of both the
financial and educational depres
sion. Total club registration was 787
compared with 561 last year. Of
those 319 were boys and 468 were
girls. Leaders commented on the
exceptionally high type of young
sters present and their Interest in
their work and the uniformly good
conduct The adult session brought
an early enrollment of 370 not
counting those to come for later
term courses or those in field par
ties. This year a summer session geol
ogy camp is being maintained in
the upper John Day region in east
ern Crook county in charge of Dean
E. L. Packard of O. S. C. school of
science and Dr. Ralph Lupher of
W. S. C. Students are attending
from those two colleges and the
University of Oregon.
