Vote on Future Control
Asked of Corn-Hog; Men
Corn-hoe adjustment contract
signers in Oregon will be called
upon by their county association to
vote soon, probably during the sec
ond week in October, on two ques
tions submitted from Washington
and growing out of the recent re
gional conferences, in one of which
extension onlcais of Oregon btate
college took part.
AAA ofllclals foresee serious dif
ficulties In the next few years if the
natural reaction from present
drouth conditions are allowed to
develop, as they have in past years,
Into a cycle which will carry pro
duction of forage crops to the op
posite extreme stimulated by scar
city and high prices of the present.
Such a condition, they believe,
would be disastrous to the corn
and other forage crop producers
and the livestock growers a3 well,
particularly the hog growers in the
In order to get a definite expres
sion of opinion from growers them
selves, the AAA officials have re
quested the state extension services
to arrange for the taking of a ref
erendum by each corn-hog county
association on the following ques
1. Do you favor an adjustment
program dealing witn corn ana
hogs in 1935?
2. Do you favor a one-contract-
per-farm adjustment program deal
ing with grains and livestock to be
come effective in 1936?
It is explained that if the pro
ducers vote favorably on the first
question, AAA officials will confer
further with representatives of pro
ducers in developing details of a
suitable contract. Any 1935 pro
gram will follow the general out-
ine of the 1934 program but bene
fit payments would probably be
somewhat larger for corn and ma
terially less for hogs than under the
program this year.
In voting on the question, west
ern producers will be faced with
the fact that this region is a deficit
area for both corn and hogs. Sug
gestion was made that control of
too rapid expansion in hog produc
tion be attempted wholly through a
contract dealing with corn produc
tion alone, but western men ob
jected strenuously to this at the re
cent Salt Lake conference, con
tending that it would be unfair to
continue the processing tax on hogs
and pay out the proceeds entirely
to corn growers.

Football season is now well start
ed, with everybody thinking or
talking about it. Why shouldn't
we, it's one of the most interesting
and exciting games there is.
Is it the cleanest game? Perhaps
not, but it produces more tempta
tions to the players. Why not safe
guard against these little afflictions
as much as possible? If the play
ers do their part, why can't we by
being prepared to take proper care
of the injured? Since it is impossi
ble to have an ambulance at the
games, we should see that there is
a suitable car an hand to carry the
victim to a physician where he will
receive the proper medical care.

An assembly was held Friday
morning at 10:45. The meeting was
called to order by the president,
Ervin Perlberg. The secretary,
Lorena Wilson, having no minutes
to read, read the traditions of the
high school, including class rush,
freshmen initiation, reception, and
the junior-senior banquet.
Among the new business brought
up was the subject of having high
school dances. It was practically
unanimously voted that a commit
tee be appointed to work further
on the idea.
A new law was passed by the Stu
dent Council to the effect that the
student body and other spectators
attending the football games must
remain in the grandstand except
Two freshmen girls, Harriet Ha-
ger and Norma Blahm, were called

Sophomores Win Class Rush
On Wednesday afternoon the
sophomores and the freshmen met
for their annual class rush. As the
freshmen were defeated by about
40 points, they must according to
tradition, have a small green pen
riant hanging in the assembly for
.the remainder of this year.
