Oregon Fight for Just Corn-Hog
Quota Brings Big Increase
ThougTi Not All Asked.
Agricultural adjustment benefit
payments in excess of $3,000,000 are
scheduled to be distributed to Ore
gon farmers during October and
early November under provisions
of the wheat and corn-hog adjust
ment programs, according to fig
ures compiled by the Oregon Exten
sion service. These payments, all
made from the receipts from fed
eral processing taxes, are to com
pensate Oregon growers for re
stricting their production in line
with the national plan for these
The amount to be received under
the corn-hog plan is more than
twice as much as would have been
due Oregon farmers under the or
iginal state production figure as
signed by the bureau of crop esti
mates, though it is still below the
figure considered just by many
county allotment committees and
the state college extension service.
The final base production figure
allowed Oregon is 229,165 hogs for
the total of all contracts. This fig
ure compares with 108,250 total con
tract base given in the first estimate
of 124,250 for the entire state in
cluding those hogs not under con
tract On the other hand it falls more
than 20,000 hogs short of the 250,
000 which the extension officials
considered the absolute minimum
which could just be assigned as
While the summer-long effort of
the farmer leaders and extension
service representatives to obtain a
just quota for Oregon was not en
tirely successful, the outcome was
a considerable gain even over what
was declared to be the third and
"final" quota of 213,000 hogS, points
out F. L. Ballard, vice-director of
the extension service.
Mr. Ballard adds that the troubles
encountered In Oregon and a num
ber of other states in carrying
through the corn-hog program were
not the fault of the plan itself,
which was fundamentally sound,
but arose from poor administration
of the plan in this state by some
representatives of the corn-hoe sec
Corn-hog benefit payments au
thorized for Oregon now total $859,-
365 of which two-fifths is payable
at once. Under the original quota
tney would have been less than half
that sum. Baker and Union are the
first Oregon counties to receive the
first payment checks.
Final 1933 wheat payments are
estimated at $834,800 in this state,
while the 1934 wheat payment, to
be distributed immediately after
tne former, is estimated at $1,829,-
427, making a total distribution for
the next month or so of more than
three million dollars in this state.
Meanwhile county corn-hog com
mittees have completed arrange
ments for taking the referendum
among contract signers on the twin
questions of continuing some corn-
hog plan for 1935 and of working
out a single contract for all grains
and livestock starting in 1936. Votes
will be taken in one or two meet
ings in each county before October
Additional purchases of drouth
cattle, in excess of the original quo
tas which expired In September,
have been authorized in Washing
ton as a tapering off process. Or
egon has been allotted $63,374 in
this cleanup buying which will pur
chase about 4500 head additional.
State directors In charge of the cat
tle buying have been authorized to
purchase cattle only from producers
clearly unable to provide adequate
feed supplies for their stock.
Oregon wheat farmers used near
ly half of their contracted acres as
additional fallow land, according to
a survey made of 26 states includ
ing Oregon. The figures gathered
by the AAA show for Oregon 46 6
per cent of the land left out of
wheat used for fallow; 23.3 per cent
was in new seedings for pasture or
hay, slightly more than 20 per cent
lay completely idle, and 8.3 per cent
was used for food and feed produc
tion for home use. Less than 2 per
cent was devoted to weed control
and other miscellaneous uses.

Mr. Winter believes that the stu
dents of Heppner high school should
have the advantage of a course In
etiquette. Some phases of etiquette
in which the sound thinkers of the
school would appreciate Instruc
tions are: How to introduce people
and how to act when introduced;
the way to approach and address
an older person, as well as one an
other; the impoliteness of combing
hair, chewing gum and girls using
compacts In the classroom; and
how to act at a social function. In
other words, we should desire to

Athena Plays Here Friday
Next Friday at 3:00 o'clock the
Heppner Fighting Irish will meet
the Athena team in a battle to win.
Last year Heppner defeated Athena
7-6 on their own field. This year
we understand that Athena is go
ing on the field undefeated. They
have won or tied all of their games
so far. Heppner has been defeated
only once and we feel sure that
Athena will have to show more pep
and work harder than ever to win
Pep Rally Held
'The pep rally held Friday to
arouse the students' enthusiasm
for the Pendleton game was well
attended. Starting at the post office
they serpentined up Main street.
At the intersection by Gilliam &
Bisbee, they sang the school song
and gave some yells. Forming an
"H," they marched down Main
street to the post office where they
disbanded and went to the golf
course to burn the letters.
The freshman initiation was held
in the schol gym Friday at 8:00 o'
clock. As usual the frosh had to
undergo various stunts including
races, airplane rides and singing
songs. After they were sworn in,
the four high school classes were
served refreshments in the base
ment of the schoolhouse.
The detested green ribbons which
the freshmen have been wearing
for the past five weeks were discarded.

Pheasant Chicks Reared
By Artificial Methods
A prelminary study of artificial
hatching and brooding of pheasants,
undertaken by the poultry depart
ment at Oregon State college at
the request of and with the finan
cial cooperation of the Oregon
State Game commission, indicates
that it is possible to hatch and rear
pheasants successfully and econ
omically by such methods, accord
ing to a progress report of the ex
perimental work just issued.
Pheasant eggs were produced on
the Eugene game farm and fur
nished by the game commission.
They varied in age from one to 11
days when set. Hatching was done
in three different types of incubat
ors, and handled the same as with
hen eggs. Five hens also were set,
to serve as a check on the machine
hatching and brooding.
The brooding experiments were
principally to determine the results
upon growth and quality of baby
pheasants from different rations.
Six electric brooders were used,
and temperatures slightly higher
than usually recommended for or
dinary chicks were maintained.
In the hatching experiments,
chicks from the still-air incubators
were of a quality equal to that of
chicks hatched by natural methods.
Need for further experimental work
in determining the proper humidity
conditions for best results was in
dicated. Three different rations were test
ed. The pheasant chicks were
found to develop much more satis
factorily on moist mash than on
dry mash. It was also brought out
that the standard college turkey
ration did not produce as satisfac
tory growth with the baby pheas
ants as did the standard game farm
ration or a third combination.
Although the work done so far
indicates that pheasants can be
reared successfully and economical
ly by artificial methods, more ex
perimental work is necessary to
solve some of the problems in con
nection with their propagation, ac
cording to the report

The dose of a liquid laxative can be
