The Better Half.
BACK in the early days of the de
pression, a banker in a middle
western town irked a considerable
number of the bank's customers.
Men who before had received ac
commodations at the bank quite
freely, and who had established
good credit ratings, were asked by
this particular banker for the sig
nature of the wife on the note along
with that of the man when he called
for a loan. The good wife, the
banker reasoned, was legally half
owner of all the man's property
and should be equally responsible
for the loan. He probably reasoned
also that it was good business for
the wife to have knowledge of the
loan and to share in the direction
of the expenditure of the money.
There was another bank in the
community. The banker there wa9
more popular, as he made loans
without signatures of the wives.
The first banker's bank is still op
erating, however, while the second
banker's bank went into liquida
tion before the depression was well
There s another story about a
man and his wife who made a nice
sale of their business in a small
town in Washington, and invested
their money in rich potato land
nearby. They were favored with
an abundant crop the first season.
and with the potatoes nicely tucked
in the sack, they called at the buy
er's office. They were offered $89 a
ton The man wouldn't sell, and as
they passed out the door the good
wife grabbed him by the arm and
plead with tears in her eyes for him
to go back and sell. "Hell, no,
they're going to a $100!" was the
man's reply. They didn't sell then;
the price didn't go to a $100. Af
ter carrying the potatoes through
the winter, and throwing half of
them away in the sorting next
spring, the man nally old the po
tatoes for $19 a ton.
These are stories of actual hap
penings.the like of which could be
related ad infinitum. The person
who told one of the stories offered
the suggestion that it might be wis
dom for the man on the farm to
turn the wife's half of the crop over
to her as soon as it is harvested to
sell as she pleases. After a few
years the man and his wife could
compare notes to see who had done
the best job of selling, then the one
who had done the best could be
placed in charge of that end of the
business thereafter. He was in
clined to believe that in many in
stances the wife would get the job
More often than not, it seems, the
farmer who holds his crop for the
expected better price does not get
it Many of the more successful
local farmers, year in and year out,
have followed the practice of sell
ing their crop as soon as it is ready
for the market. There may be years
when taking exception to this rule
pays, and this year may be one of
In any event, the advice of the
better half is worthy of considera
tion. It should be remembered that
she is a 50-50 partner in this game

Land Pleasuring Near End
In Most Oregon Counties
With the big task of measuring
contracted and seeded wheat acre
age nearing completion in most
Oregon counties, compliance forms
will begin moving to Washington
soon to be followed by distribution
from there of the second benefit
payment of 9 cents a bushel on
growers' allotments, says N. C. Don
aldson, state supervisor for the
wheat section of the AAA stationed
at Oregon State- college.
Morrow, Sherman, Gilliam, Wash
ington, Benton and Crook counties
were among the first to complete
the measuring, and Gilliam and
Washington were the first to get
compliance forms ready for sub
mission to Washington. Just how
long it will take after these are re
ceived at the national headquar
ters before the checks will be dis
tributed is not known, but word
from the AAA is that utmost speed
will be used in getting the second
payment out to the growers.
Umatilla county, which has been
using the airplane photographic
survey method of measuring is re
ported getting along well with the
plan after some preliminary diffi
culties, and is finding it accurate
and convenient. Once the task is
finished this year, most of next
year's measuring will be done as
The Wasco county committee has
now let a contract for a complete
air survey there as well, although
some ground measuring had al
ready been done. Committeemen
there believe that the savings next
year will justify making a complete
photographic map now. Some other
counties have obtained permission
to begin ground measurements of
summer fallow this fall rather than
wait until next year to do the en
More details of the proclamation
of the secretary of agriculture con
cerning next year's benefit pay
ments and processing tax on wheat
show that while the payments and
tax will be the same as last year,
the amount of crop reduction is not
fixed definitely other than that it
will not exceed this years 15 per
cent. Should national or interna
tional conditions warrant, growers
may not be required to reduce that
much. More definite announcement
is expected sometime in August in
advance of fall seeding dates.
Needy Students to Get
Work Aid Thru SERA
Corvallis Federal funds for as
sisting students of Oregon colleges
through labor relief will again be
available for the coming year, ac
cording to notification received by
E. B. Lemon, registrar at Oregon
State college. Funds for a limited
number of students will be distrib
uted through the state emergency
The percentage quota allowed will
permit 224 students to obtain aid
not to exceed $20 a month and an
average of not more than $15 a
month. Half of those receiving this
work must not have been in any
college or university last January.
Applications are being received now
by Registrar Lemin from those who
would not be able to attend or con
tinue in college without such aid.
