AAA Checks Move
Fast From Office
More than 2000 farmers in 12 of
Oregon's 36 counties have thus far
received checks in payment or co
operation with the 1936 agricultural
conservation program, announces JN,
E. Dodd, Baker, chairman of the
state AAA committee.
The state office at Corvallis is
now fullv caught up with the neces
sary clerical work and is forwarding
claims on to the branch disbursing
. office in Portland as rapidly as ap
plications are being received from
the counties. In many instances, it
is believed, pavments are being held
up because of delay of farmers in
annparine before their county com
mittees to complete applications for
Just before the end of February
checks had been distributed to 2006
farmers for a total of $244,413.67. It
is believed that this is approximately
10 per cent of the payments to be
mads under the 1936 program. At
that time checks were being cleared
at the rate of about 250 a day.
Counties having received at least
part of their checks at that time
were Baker, Benton, Clackamas,
Columbia, Gilliam, Jackson, Jose
phine, Marion, Polk, Sherman, Un
ion and Yamhill. Marion, Baker and
Josephine counties led with the lar
gest number of applications approv
ed and paid, while Baker, Sherman,
Marion and Gilliam counties led in
total amount of payments.
The state AAA committee has ap
proved the recommendations of the
technical committee regarding qual
ity of seed to be used by those plant
ing to apply for soil building pay
ments under the 1937 program. These
rules are in line with national regu
lations, interpreted to fit Oregon
Alfalfa seed from southern states,
Argentina, or southern European
countries is ruled out as being en
tirely unadapted for use here. By
southern states is meant southern
California, Arizona, New Mexico and
Texas. Alfalfa seed from Canada
and northern countries is suitable
and may be used. All imported seed
clover seed except that from Canada
is ruled out as unadapted.
Screenings or other grass seeds
that do not comply with the Oregon
seed law as to germination and free
dom from noxious weeds are banned,
and not to exceed 3 per cent of
Italian rye grass may be used in
permanent pasture mixtures where
soil building payments are being
Better farm prices, better local
management and the experience of
service are combining to make the
Federal Land Bank at Spokane a
sounder institution and capable of
serving a larger number of farmers,
it was brought out in a series of dis
trict conferences of national farm
loan association officers and direc
tors held in Oregon.
The first conference was held in
Grants Pass for the southern Ore
gon section and the second, attend
ed by more than 150 persons, was at
Oregon State college. A similar con
ference will be held in Pendleton.
In effect the conferences are in
tensive schools at which the district
and national leaders of the Farm
Credit administration are explaining
the problems and policies of the sys
tem and showing how more local
control may be exercised in placing
and servicing the land bank loans.
Now that the extreme rush of emer
gency depression period has passed,
all connected with the bank are ea
ger to get it on a normal business
basis where the local associations of
farmers will handle most of the
April 3 of this year marks the
twentieth anniversary of the found
ing of the Spokane Land bank. The
conferences now being held are in
the nature of anniversary meetings
dedicated to building a more busi
nesslike and better coordinated sys
tern, according to E. M. Earhardt,
In addition to national and dis
trict officers who took part in all
the conference programs, Wm. A
Schoenfeld, dean of agriculture at
O. S. C, and chairman of the board
of directors of the Spokane bank,
and W. H. Ragsdale of The Dalles,
also a member of the board, attend
ed the Corvallis conference.

Pictures on Walls May
Make or Mar Looks
. Many otherwise lovely rooms are
spoiled by the use of too many pic
tures, which, however beautiful in
themselves, tend to give the room a
restless and cluttered atmosphere,
says Miss Joan Patterson, home
furnishings specialist at Oregon
Contrary to the usual belief, pic
tures are not necessary to a well
furnished room, Miss Patterson says.
If the draperies are decorative in
coloring and pattern, and if the wall
spaces are not too large and bare,
or if they are paneled or have other
interesting coloring, pictures may
be actually superfluous.
Granting, however, that a few pic
tures will often add to the interest
and "honieiness" of a room, their se
lection and placing is worthy of the
deepest thought, Miss Patterson be
lieves. A good picture, she points
out, is generally considered to be
one that is inspiring in the idea it
expresses, pleasing in composition
and spacing, simple in effect, good
in color, and well related through
color, size and tone to the wall on
which it hangs and the space in
which it is placed.
Good taste requires that a picture
should belong to the room in which
it is hung, 'and not be used just be
cause it was on hand and would fill
an empty space, Miss Patterson em
There are definite rules to observe

in hanging pictures, if one wishes
to obtain the best effect, she points
out. It is important that a vacant
space equal to at least one-third of
the total width of the picture be
allowed on either side of a single
picture. Several small pictures
should be tastefully arranged in a
compact group rather than scatter
ed over the walls. In such a group
arrangement it is well to keep either
the upper or lower edges of the
frame in a straight line.
A most important rule in hanging
a picture is to place it so that the
center of the picture will be on a
level with the eyes of a person of
average height, says Miss Patterson.
Large square or rectangular pictures
are best hung with two vertical
wires so that the lines of the frame
are carried upward to the picture
molding. Small pictures, however,
are more conveniently and appro
priately hung by means of a small
hook fastened into the wall behind
