Proper Machine Care
Saves Farmers' Money
Neglect of farm machinery is cost
ing American fanners millions of
dollars annually, says W. J. Gilmore,
head of the agricultural engineering
department at O. S. C. Few machines
actually wear out, but many are
rotted or rusted out he pointed out.
Good care of farm machinery calls
for protection from the weather by
housing, protection of the parts sub
ject to rust or decay, and repairing,
adjusting and replacement of parts,
A shelter for farm machinery
needs only to be adequate to protect
from moisture, sun and dust, and a
simple building with wide doors
for easy storage or removal of ma
chines is desirable, Professor Gil
more ponits out. If space is at a pre
mium, poles or tongues and eveners
can be removed without disturbing
other parts, he explained.
Professor Glimore offers a few
suggestions on storing harvesting
machinery. It is especially desirable
to place the mower, binder and com
bine under shelter to avoid high de
preciation and repair costs, he says.
When storing, a block under the cen
ter of the tongue may keep it from
warping. If the mower is stored with
the cutter bar in a vertical position,
it is well to place a block under the
inner show to relieve lifting parts.
If stored with the cutter bar down,
unhook the lifting spring. If bar is
tilted so that pitman is under a strain
it may take a permanent twist and
cause trouble later.
Combine and binder canvases may
be removed and placed in a dry
place away from mice and rats. It is
well to clean off the dirt, tighten
loose bolts, spread cotters, grease
wearing parts, paint the wood parts
and order the repairs that will be
needed before the machine is used
agcin. At least, a list of needed re
pairs can be given the dealer so that
delays may be avoided when the
machinery is needed again.
16 Oregon Counties to
Have '38 Potato Goals
Sixteen Oregon counties have been
officially designated as commercial
potato areas for which potato goals
will be included in the 1938 agri
culutral conservation program, it is
announced by N. C. Donaldson, ex
ecutive secretary of the state com
mittee. Establishment of potato goals in
these counties follows a recent poll
in which 82 percent of the farmers
voting favored this action. The coun
ties for which these goals will be
established are Baker, Clackamas,
Crook, Deschutes, Hood River,
Klamath, Lane, Linn, Malheur, Mar
ion, Multnomah, Umatilla, Union, .
Washington and Yamhill.
"The new program including po
tato goals for 1938 is entirely volun
tary and should not be confused with
the old potato control law," says Mr.
Donaldson. "These potato goals will
be handled just the same way as
those for other soil depleting crops
under the conservation program.
"Although no state goal has been
set yet, the national goal is between
3,100,000 and 3,300,000 acres. This
compares with an average annual
acreage of 3,346,000 acres during the
past 10 years. So while this will not
materially reduce potato acreage, it
is believed that it will help stabilize
As under all soil-depleting crop
goals in the '38 program, payments
will be reduced if the goals are exceeded.
