Soil Depleting Base
Sent to Washington
New soil depleting county bases
for the 1937 agricultural conserva
tion program have been reviewed
and compiled by the state AAA com
mittee for Oregon and were for
warded to Washington for final ap
proval late in April. In compiling
the bases the committee worked
with two representatives of the west
ern regional AAA office, who, after
completing the task in Oregon went
on to Washington and Idaho to work
with those state committees.
Comparatively minor changes were
made in the totals submitted by the
36 county committees, according to
N. E. Dodd, chairman of the state
committee. County committees had
made adjustments caused by changes
in crop or practice classification be
fore the listing sheets were submit
ted to the state committee.
Final approval of the new bases is
expected early in May and as soon
as this is received the figures will be
reported to the counties together
with the adjustment in county pro
Vetch has been definitely included
as one of the legume crops for the
planting of which Oregon farmers
may receive soil building payments
under the 1937 agricultural conser
vation program. Uncertainty over
this feature was settled recently
through personal conferences be
tween F. L. Ballard, vice-director of
extension, and officials of the AAA
in Washington, D. C. The inclusion
of vetch will mean upwards of $100,
000 to Willamette valley farmers, ac
cording to estimates made by the
state AAA committee.
While in Washington Mr. Ballard
also obtained the correction of an
error by which Wasco county farm
ers had been charged with $26,000 in
excess expenses in conducting the
program in that county. While pure
ly a clerical error, the mistake had
proved difficult to correct at long
Mr. Ballard while in the east also
served on a special committee which
called upon Secretary of Agriculture
Wallace to discuss relationships be
tween the extension service and oth
er agencies of the department of agriculture.
TELLS HOW NOT TO LIVE.
Brakes are put on cars for a pur
pose. But any convenient tree, tele
phone pole, fence, ditch, or almost
anything else will do as well," notes
Dr. E. B. McDaniel, president of the
Oregon State Motor association.
NEW LIGHTS SOLUTION.
Washington State replied to in
quiring Oregon State Motor associa
tion traffic safety examiners that the
sodium-vapor lights where installed
in the northern state had cut the rate
of automobile accidents in half.
