First State Corn Show
Set for Nov. 29-Dec. 4
Premiums for Oregon's first state
wide corn show, scheduled for Port
land, November 29 to December 4,
are divided equally between adult
growers and 4-H corn club members.
The two groups will compete against
each toher only for sweepstakes,
however. Hundreds of entries in both
groups have already been made, say
those in charge.
The show is sponsored by the First
National bank of Portland, with the
cooperation of the agricultural com-1
mittee of the Portland chamber of
commerce and Oregon State college,
and will be held at the Portland
public market. J. J. Inskeep, Clack
amas county agent, is chairman of
the committee in charge, which is
composed of representatives of the
three agencies concerned.
In pointing out the importance of
the development of corn growing in
Oregon, R. E. Fore, assistant agron
omist at Oregon State college, and
a member of the committee, said
that while it is estimated that there
were about 76,000 acres of field corn
grown in Oregon this year, it would
require 200,000 acres to supply the
demand in this state alone. There is
no question, he said, but that Ore
gon can and should raise a great
deal more corn, as soon as varieties
most adapted to conditions here have
been definitely- determined. Many
farmrs of the state are now coop
erating with the Oregon extension
service in carrying on demonstra
tion trials of various varieties of
