New Corn-Hog Plan Out;
Crop Restrictions Are Off
Smaller benefit payments for
hogs, but less reduction and more
liberal contract requirements in
other respects, characterize the 1935
corn-hog adjustment program, ac
cording to advance announcements
received by extension officials at
Oregon State college from the Ag
ricultural Adjustment administra
tion. Copies of the new contract have
not been received, but detailed re
ports of their provisions show that
growers who voluntarily choose to
sign again will be permitted to
raise up to 90 per cent of their es
tablished hog base instead of 75 per
cent as was the case this year.
Corn growers may also plant up to
90 per cent of their base acreage,
though they may elect to reduce
down to 70 per cent, as was allowed
this year, and take rental benefit
payments on the 30 per cent
The benefit payment plan on hogs
will be changed so that instead of
receiving $5.00 on each hog raised
under the allotted quota as was the
case this year, the grower will be
paid $15.00 a head for the number
represented by the 10 per cent re
duction. The effect of this is that
in the case of a man with a 100-hog
base he will receive $150 in benefit
payments as compared with $375
under the original plan. He will be
able to raise and market 15 more
hogs, however, and will have no
restrictions imposed as to number
and kind of other livestock pro
duced. Benefits for the corn growers
have been raised from 30 to 35 cents
a bushel and yields will be figured
on a firm basis rather than on the
particular acreage left out of corn.
All restrictions as to the use of
what was formerly called "contract
ed acreage" have been removed un
der the new corn-hog plan, and the
contract signer can raise anything
he pleases except corn on this land
and for any purpose, except as he
may be bound by other adjustment
Thsi lowering of restrictions on
what are now termed "shifted
acres" is explained by the Washing
ton officials as being necessary in
view of the shortage of feed which
is expected to develop early next
season in many of the areas affect
ed by drouth. The AAA leaders be
lieve continuance of the corn-hog
control is necessary in the modified
form, however, to prevent rapid ex
pansion of the corn production and
repetition of the surplus conditions
first in corn and then in hogs.
Regional meetings In connection
with the new contracts will be held
soon after Thanksgiving, the one
for this territory to be in Salt Lake
city. Soon after this the extension
leaders and county and community
committees will prepare for the new
campaign, with the new contracts
probably being offered sometime In
OSC Beef Feeding Tests
May Bring New Industry
Possibility of developing a prof
itable winter cattle feeding indus
try in western Oregon is being in
vestigated this season by the animal
husbandry department of the OSC
experiment station. The experi
ments are the result of the chang
ing consumer demand ,for a higher
quality beef than is normally of
fered in this region in the spring
Twenty head of feeder cattle from
eastern Oregon ranges were pur
chased at the Portland stockyards
this fall and, together with 10 head
of calves raised on the station, have
been placed in feed lots at Corvallis
for the winter.
One of the older lots is being fed
on a combined hay and barley ra
tion, while the other is being given
hay and mill by-products, the pur
pose being to compare the relative
economy of several methods of feed
ing. The project is being carried
on by B. W. Rodenwold, assistant
professor in animal husbandry, who
has several year's results already
on a smaller scale.
"The Willamette valley usually
produces a surplus of hay and feed
grains, especially some of the lower
quality hays not suitable for dairy
herds," explained Professor Roden
wold. "With the present premiums
that are being paid for well finished
beef in the spring, it is our belief
that farmers in western Oregon can
profitably market this surplus feed
by fattening feeder cattle on their
"In some places this is being car
ried on already in a limited way, but
profits have been limited by the ap
parent necessity of feeding too
much grain. If the larger tests this
year bear out preliminary results on
a small scale, feeding recommen
dations can be made that will be
The change in consumer demand
in the last 10 years has been so
marked that many packing com
panies have been forced to carry
on extensive winter feeding opera
tions to get high quality beef to
supply their trade in the spring.
One Seattle packer is reported to
have fed out 5000 head last winter.
An important by-product of such
a new enterprise would be the in
creased fertility to follow feeding
operations on the farm, the OSC
Fruit Outlook Discussed
In OSC Economic Report
Featuring long-time trends In the
outlook for fruit and nut crops, the
first installment of the 1934-34 Ore
gon agricultural outlook reports
has just been released by the ag
ricultural extension service at Ore

fruits has increased 20 per cent in

oranges, pears and cherries show
ing the greatest gains. Nut produc
tion also shows a strong upward
trend, with nut imports falling off.
The circular contains 10 pages of
condensed information, with out
look statements on apples, cherries,
pears, prunes, walnuts, filberts,
strawberries, other berries and
grapes, and other horticultural pro
ducts. Copies are available from
county egrciultural agents.
With reference to current farm
price levels, the report shows that
for the nation as a whole farm
prices now average almost exactly
the same as during the 1910-1914
prewar period, but in Oregon they
are only about 80 per cent as much.
Since mid-September the general
farm price level has declined slight

some increase during the first half
Farmers generally are expected
to increase crop acreage in 1935, es
pecially of crops not under adjust

summer as well as upon the amount
of improvement which may occur in

Federal Leaders Coming
For Wheat League Meet
Headed by George E. Farrell,
chief of the AAA wheat section, a
notable list of agricultural special
ists are scheduled to appear on the
general program of the eighth an
nual convention of the Eastern Or
egon Wheat league in Arlington De
cember 7 and 8. The tentative pro
gram has just been issued by Chas.
W. Smith, secretary of the league
and emergency county agent leader.
Unless last minute complications
arise, Mr. Farrell will attend the
session, he has assured J. B. Ad
ams, Moro, president of the league.
He will speak on latest phases of
the wheat reduction program and
the world wheat situation. He vis
ited the state last summer and was
much impressed with the way the
wheat program was handled in this
Others listed to take part in the
program include Rex Willard, head
of the regional land planning pro
gram, or his assistant; W. A. Roo
kie, head of the federal soil erosion
work in the northwest; Bert Whit
lock, federal grain inspection serv
ice, Portland; Dr. W. H. Dreesen,
taxation specialist from OSC; Ar
thur Geary, freight rate attorney;
Ray Gill, state grange master; D.
E. Stephens, superintendent of the
Sherman County branch experi
ment station, and D. D. Hill, crops
specialist from the college.
Action of the convention will be
taken by adopting reports formu
lated by committees to work thru
the session. These deal with pro

Heavy Water Price Drops
Says U. of 0. Scientist
University of Oregon, Eugene,
November 27. "D20" or deuterium
oxide, as "heavy water" is now
known, can now be purchased com
mercially in the United States, for
use in laboratory experiments, and
because the price is not out of
reach for many institutions and re
search organizations, interest in
this extremely interesting chemical
is expected to be greater than ever,
it was declared here by O. F. Staf
ford, professor of chemisty at the
University of Oregon. Professor
Stafford recently won attention with
his research project here which in
volved concentrating 10,000 gallons
of ordinary water down to heavy
water. When the water was con
centrated to about 50 gallons of
residue, It was sent on to the Bu
reau of Standards at Washington
for final processing.
When Professor Stafford began
his project nearly two years ago,
heavy water" had just been diS'
covered, and it3 value at that time
was placed at about $150,000 per
quart. A year ago a quart was still
valued at about $70,000 and difficult
to obtain. Announcements received
here within the past few days, how
ever, quote the fluid at $20 per gram
for 100 percent concentration and
much cheaper for lesser concentra
tions. A firm in England is also
offering the material at 2 Pounds,
or about $10. At this rate, a quart
could be purchased for about $40,-
000 in this country, or $20,000 in
The possibilities of manufactur
ing this valuable solution have by
no means been exhausted, Professor
Stafford points out If the demand
for the material continues to grow,
it could be manufactured at reas
onable cots at many plants where
electrolysis is employed.
The use of the heavy water In re
search is steadily increasing, Pro
fessor Stafford says. One of the
most recent is an experiment that
involves using the heart of the

Practical Art Museum
Described 'by Sculptor
LTniversity of Oregon, Eugene,
Nov. 27 A "dream" museum, which
turned out to be a practical sug
gestion for art appreciation for ev
ery campus or community in the
country, was described here recent
ly at the University of Oregon by
Lorado Taft, famous American
sculptor, who addressed a large and
enthusiastic audience of university
students, faculty and townspeople.
Mr. Taft's "dream museum"
would simply be a carefully lighted,
well arranged repository for copies
of great works of art. Such a col
lection, he pointed out, could be
amassed for a fraction of what just
one original would cost
A museum such as he described
would not only develop art appre
ciation on the part of students and
others, but would be of great aid in
encouraging those who aspired to
be artists, Mr. Taft said.

Any attempt on the part of the
coast counties to remove the toll
provisions from the Coast bridges
contract will probably meet with
strenuous opposition, particularly
from southern and eastern Oregon
counties, according to information
reaching the capitol. The Coast
bridges program met with unani
mous support in the last legislative
session largely because they were
being promoted as self-liquidating
projects to be paid for out of tolls.
In fact the session went on record
by an almost unanimous vote as op
posed ever to diverting any of the
current revenues of the highway
commission toward payment of the
bridge debt, except an amount equi
valent to the annual cost of free
ferry service which the bridges
will supplant. Ferry service on the
Coast highway now costs $125,000 a
year. This figure was expected to
mount to $175,000 within five years
with the Increase in traffic and the
demand for all-night service. Re
tirement of the bridge bonds, inter
est payments, maintenance of the
bridges and operation of the draws
on the Reedsport and Siuslaw spans
will require an annual outlay of
approximately $300,000 a year or
$125,000 more than the peak cost of
the ferry service. Shauld the legis
lature approve the free bridge pol
icy it would mean that this amount
would have to come out of new
