as is now predicted and if a larger
acreage of crops with a higher av
erage yield is realized as is also pre
dicted, national farm prices may be
expected to average about the same
as in 1926.
Even if farm prices merely re
main at the 1936 level, total farm
income will be somewhat greater
for the country as a whole, Breit
haupt points out A part of this
extra income will doubtless be
needed to meet higher farm costs
which are now in prospect but un
doubtedly part of it will be used in
improving farm homes and family
Feeders' Meeting Dates
Shifted; Grant on List
One county has been added and
the dates for two counties changed
in the series of 11 feeders' and feed
resources meetings scheduled by
the O. S. C. extenion service for De
cember and January. Under the
new schedule, the first meeting will
be held in Grant county December
4 and 5, with the Wallowa county
meeting moved on to December 7
and 8, and the Union county meet
ing December 9 and 10. Other
meeting dates remain as previously
announced, starting with Clacka
mas county January 28 and 29.
Information has been gathered
through experiment station work
and observation of commercial
herds which, if generally applied,
would make possible fattening of
many steers and lambs profitably
on Oregon hay and grain Instead of
shipping them outside for finish
ing, extension leaders believe. These
methods will be explained and dis
cussed at the meetings.
Evidence that hundreds of visitors
to Oregon become permanent resi
dents of the state is contained in
replies to questionnaires being re
turned to the travel bureau of the
state highway department. Buyers
of farms predominate among the
visiting tourists' who have suc
cumbed to the attractions - off ered

permanent residents.

Danes Have Made Great Strides
To Put Country in First Class
(Editor's Note: This is one of several
articles written for this newspaper by
Eric W. Allen, dean of the University of
Oregon school of journalism who trav
eled In Europe on a fellowship granted
by the Oberlaender Trust of the Karl
Shun memorial foundation.)

School of Journalism.
KOPENHAGEN. Denmark is a
sensible little country, if there ever
was one. It has to be. If the Danes
make any serious mistakes, there is
no chance that Nature will make
up the deficit, or kick, or politics,
and perhaps not even Providence.
So the Danes just watch their step,
and they have accomplished won
ders .
Denmark is almost without nat
ural resources. Yet the Danes eat
better, sleep warmer, live in more
modern houses, enjoy a superior ed
ucation, are socially secure, and get
through life with less tribulation
than almost any people one could
name. A young Nazi in Germany,
a war baby himself, told me he
would hate to live in Denmark be
cause life there was so peaceful and
All the Danes had to start with
was a small country made up ap
parently or sanddunes covered with
a thin and not very fertile soil. Now
they have a land that seems more
like Oregon than anything else in
Europe. The Danes are about as
artistic as the Americans. Whether
that is saying much or little is left
to the reader. Their idea of what
constitutes a good town is the same:
the streets should be wide, and
clean, and well paved. The houses
should be well built The store
windows should be large, and spot
lessly clean, and filled with the most
modern goods the world can offer.
attractively displayed. A few neon
lgihts and a little snappy advertis
ing in brilliant colors warms the
Danish soul, as it does the Ameri
can. The automobiles should be
streamlined, and they are as no
where else in Europe.
But to see the star exhibit of Dan
ish life one must go outside the
cities and note what has happened
to those ex-sanddunes. All Den
mark is a food-factory. Every Dan
ish farmer mixes his own fertilizer
and he always knows exactly what
he is doing. There is no guess about
it He knows his chemistry and
his biology and his bacteriology and
he keeps careful statistics of results.
One could not walk through his
clover field without tripping and
falling. The yield of everything
per acre, or, as he would say, per
hectare, is very large.
We saw a stock fair at Odense
as we drove through and were sur
prised at the quality of the animals.
Afterwards we were told that low
grade stock has just about disap
peared from the country. Hogs are
so standardized that when they are
brought to the bacon factory (not
"slaughter house") the farmers are
penalized in price if the sdies are
an inch or so too short or an inch
or so too long. Danish butter is a
standard luxury throughout all the
world's tropical regions and in those
lands where it is noon at the Dan
ish midnight. The Danes know ex
actly how to make it so that it is
all absolutely standard and of the
highest standard how to put it in
tins so that it will keep, how to
market it and ship it and how to
charge for it
Marketing, in fact, is exactly
where the Danes shine. Only in a
country where a very high quality
of education is general almost uni
versal, in fact could their complex
organization of dozens of coopera
tives be successfully conducted, and
become the basis of a country's ec
onomic and cultural success. Even
the farm hand, or the porter at your
hotel, is likely to be a college grad
uate and answer your question in
good French, or German or Eng
lish if you cannot understand Dan
ish. There are bookstores every
where, with big stocks in several
languages, not only in Kopenhagen
but in the small town. There are
far more newspapers in proportion
than there are at home, and they
are lively, American-style sheets,
with lots of pictures and a great
deal of interesting news, not the
pseudophilosophy and propaganda
that now characterize the newspa
pers in too many European coun
tries. And they get lots of adver
tising, which helps a newspaper to
keep up its quality of service and its
intellectual courage.
The Danes think and freely say
that American papers, compared
with their own, are not sufficiently
well written, and are not vivacious
The Danes have their troubles,
just as other peoples have in this
troublesome period in the world's
history. They have some unem
ployment, largely owing to unecon
omic tariff policies followed by cus
tomer countries, but it is written
into the constitution that no Dane
shall go hungry and he doesn't
There are no slums, or at least the
Ford car hasn't been able to find
any and the Danes tell us there are
none. There is an elaborate sys
tem of social insurances that pro
tects everybody, and this again is
only possible where a high standard
of education, honesty and self-respect
in general In Denmark you
just park your car in one of the
wide boulevards over night and save
garage rent Nobody will steal the
accessories or drain out the gas.
We saw nine soldiers across the
street at the Rosenborg palace yes
terday, but have not yet identified a
policeman. The chap in a bright
red coat turned out to be a mail
carrier. And this is Europe, in the
year 1936! Of course, there must
be soldiers and policemen some
where, but they are not so thick
that they get into one's hair, as
the case in most of Europe.
These shores of the North Sea
figure in the ancestry of almost
every Oregonian, if one traces it
back far enough. Here, and along
the German coast where we are go
ing next, is where the Anglo-Sax
ons originated. A new book just
issued in Germany the Germans
are much interested in "race"; far
too much so, in fact makes fun
very sensibly, of the tendency of
scientists to figure that every race
that is found anywhere at the dawn
of history must have come from
somewhere else the Caucasus or
Central Asia for preference. The
writer asks, with very good reason,
where else could a tribe be bleached
out so white as we are except right
here? This is a very bleaching
climate, and it is very easy to be
lieve that it was right here that the
Oregonians acquired their white
skins. Throughout the entire per
iod of American drouth and heat
wave, we have had in Europe, ex
cept for a few days in Italy, weath
er that is exactly like an Oregon
winter or damper and part of the
time colder, if anything.
It is no wonder that Europe is so
beautifully green. The wonder is
how completely the Europeans have
conquered mud, and how neat, snug,
well painted and well kept every
famhouse is and nowhere more
so than in rainy Denmark.

1937 Farm Price Outlook
Viewed by Breithaupt
A prospective increase in con
sumer purchasing power and a
somewhat corresponding increase
in farm production are the two most
significant forecasts made at the
National Agricultural Outlook con
ference held recently in Washing
ton, D. C, reports L. R. Breithaupt,
extension economist at Oregon State
college, who represented Oregon at
this annual meeting.
A voluminous report on the out
look for all major crops and animal
products was compiled from the
national viewpoint. Copies of this
are in the hands of all county
agents who will be glad to go over
any part of it with those interest
ed. Mr. Breithaupt is now engaged
in localizing parts of the national
report to Oregon conditions. His
conclusions will be Issued by the
college from time to time in the
form of regular agricultural situa
tion and outlook reports .
The first of these for the new crop
year will deal with horticultural
crops, plans for which are usually
made in the winter. The import
ance of the prospective rise in pur
chasing power is shown by the fact
that the Oregon farm price index
has shown an almost exact corre
lation with the national industrial
payroll index.
For example, the average farm
price index in Oegon for the five
depression years was 57.4 per cent
of the 1926-193 period. In the same
years the average United States
factory payroll index was 58.4 per
cent or just one point difference.
If the consumers' purchasing
power increases 10 per cent for 1937
