Most State Crop Land
Now Under AAA
Seventy-one per cent of Oregon's
total crop acreage was represented
in work sheets under the 1936 agri
cultural conservation program, while
93 per cent is represented in work
sheets this year, according to a sta
tistical summary issued by N. C.
Donaldson, secretary of the state
committee. Nationally there was 67
per cent of the total crop land in the
United States actually covered by
application for grants under the 1936
program, the annual report of R. H.
Tolley, administrator, shows.
Oregon had 14,209 actual applica
tions for grants among approximate
ly three million such applications in
the country as a whole. The national
report shows that soil building prac
tices were carried out on approxi
mately 53 million acres of land dur
ing 1936, exclusive of western range
The program is described in Ad
ministrator Tolley's report as "de
signed to conserve and improve the
productivity of the nation's farm
land by encouraging shifts from soil
depleting to soil conserving crops,"
and by the use of sound soil building
practices. The extent to which such
changes were effected in Oregon is
shown in the statistical summary
issued by Donaldson.
In Oregon, for example, more than
40,000 acres of new seedings of per
ennial non-irrigated grasses were
made, of which 23,000 were in east
ern Oregon and 17,000 in western
Oregon. In western Oregon alone
more than 51,000 acres were seeded
to non-irrigated alfalfa and red clo
ver. East of the mountains trashy
summer fallow methods were car
ried out on approximately 111,000
acres. In the state as a whole the
shift from soil depleting crops
amounted to 13.5 per cent among
those participating in the program.

creased return of a cent a pound, and
similar results have been obtained
in other commodities. There remains
room for much more work in this
respect, Beck said.
Before taking his present position,
Beck was county agent in Polk coun
ty, and he cited a large increase in
income there brought about through
the organization of a Jersey breed
ers' association through which the
quality of dairy stock was built up
immensely, and which resulted in a
demand in eastern states for breed
ing cattle from the section at good
Other club visitors included Chas.
W. Smith, former county agent and
former club president, now assistant
state county agent leader; Paul A,
Sayre and A. A. Lesseg, members of
Rose City Lions club of Portland,
and Dallas Jacobson, local Union
Oil company agent.
The club passed a resolution spon
sored by the Springfield chamber
of commerce looking to preserva
tion of natural beauties along high
ways of the state, and recommending
that the forest service be empow
ered to trade public domain timber
lands for private timber lands along
the highways to insure such pres
ervation. The club named F. W. Turner,
Marvin Dixon and R. C. Banister
as its Rodeo float committee.
