Wheat Grass Seed
That proper fertilization will ma
terially increase yields of crested
wheat grass seed, in certain sections
of eastern Oregon at least, is indi
cated by preliminary results ob
tained at the eastern Oregon live
stock branch experiment station at
Results there, corroborated by ob
servations made on commercial
plantings, show that after the first
two or three seed crops, the yield of
crested wheat seed decreases rap
idly, even though moisture may be
plentiful. Where the grass is grown
for pasture purposes, supplemental
fertilization has not been found nec
essary, but the crested wheat plant
bears such a heavy crop of seed that
it usees a great deal of plant food,
the experiments show.
The seed yield on a five-year-old
stand was doubled by applying an
ammoniated phosphate fertilizer on
the station plots. One plot treated
with an 11-48 fertilizer, that is, con
taining 11 per cent nitrogen and 48
per cent phosphoric acid, returned
a yield of 600 pounds of re-cleaned
seed, as compared to the untreated
area which yielded 300 pounds. A
plot treated with a 16-20 fertilizer
yielded only 400 pounds of seed, or
one-third more than the check plot,
indicating that the phosphorus is
the element causing the favorable
response, points out Douglas Hand,
assistant superintendent of the sta
tion. The fertliizer was applied at the
rate of 200 pounds per acre in the
spring. It was placed directly beside
the rows of grass on or near the
surface of the soil. Placing the ma
terial close to the rows makes the
plant food quickly available to the
plants. A one-horse corn planter,
adjusted to feed the fertilizer at the
desired rate, and equipped with an
offset hitch to permit the horse to
walk in the middle of the row,
proved a convenient means of ap
plying the material.
OSC Joins in Land
The celebration of the seventy
fifth anniversary of the establish
ment of the land grant colleges by
Congress has emphasized the fact
that democracy in higher education,
na pmhodied in the Merrill act in
1862 has had to be defended from
that dav to this against attacks both
from within and without the ranks
of rrofessional educators.
This situation' was pointed out in
addresses before the annual confer
pnce of agricultural and home ec
onomics workers at Oregon State
college by Chancellor-Emeritus W.
J. Kerr, and by Chancellor Freder
ick M. Hunter.
Dr. Kerr, who served as president
of land grant colleges for more than
30 vears. including 26 years in Ore
gon, pointed out that the land grant
college act was first vetoed by rres
ident Buchanan before being signed
three years later by President Lin
coln. The act established the tun
damental Drincinle that high educa
tion of this tvte was to be under
state control and available to all
"The land erant colleges, when
successful, meet a two-fold require
ment which is as valid now as when
advanced many years ago," said Dr.
Kerr. "The dual nature of land grant
college education includes first,
training of the best practical value
to students in preparing for making
a living, and second- the best prep
aration for life through the acquisi
tion of a liberal education along with
the practical training afofrded."
' "After the passage of the Merrill
act," Dr. Kerr continued, The trou
ble of the land grant college advo
cates had just begun. Educators of
the old traditional classical school
have continuously attacked this
democratic conception of higher ed
ucation. Oregon State college and
similar institutions have had to pio
neer in establishing and defending
this type of educational work.
That these attacks have continued
to the present day was pointed out
by Dr. Hunter, who referred to the
current articles bv President R. M.
Hutchins of Chicago university, now
appearing in a national magazine.
Dr. Hunter characterized these arti

support were provided by the U. S.

Wn., in 1917. He joined the Oregon
staff in 1923 and was assigned to Co

THE GOVERNOR SPEAKS
Governor Martin this week ex
tend his pants kicking activities to
the National Labor Relations board
and Madam Perkins, secretary of
labor, with a gentle slap on the wrist
for the president thrown in for good
meaure. The governor's criticism of
the federal officials was voiced dur
ing a speech at Astoria in which he
placed blame for the impotency of
the federal administration In dealing
with labor troubles which have par
alyzed the Oregon lumber industry.
The governor's speech drew imme
diate fire from Howard Latourette,
democratic national committeeman
who charged that the governor had
always been an enemy of the presi
dent and his New Deal program.

Pioneer County Agents
Honored at Meeting
Pioneers in county agent work in
Oregon were honored at the annual
all-agricultural staff conference at
Oregon State college in December,
which observed the triple anniver
sary of the founding of the land
grant colleges 75 years ago, the ex
periment stations 50 years ago, and
of county agent work 25 years ago,
County agent work in Oregon be
gan two vears before the Smith-
Lever act was passed by congress in
1914, which established extension
work on a cooperative basis, the rec
ords show. A year earner, in 1913,
the state of Oregon made a definite
appropriation for extension work,
while even before that the beginning
of county agent work had been made
L. J. Chapin, at present a farmer
living near Salem, was the first
county agent in the state, having
been appointed September 7, 1912,
and assigned to Marion county. He
appeared on the program of the con
ference just held and told of some
of his early experiences as an ex
tension agent At the time he was
appointed the work was supported
jointly by the U. S. department of
agriculture, the Salem chamber of
commerce, and the crop improve
ment committee of the Chicago board
of trade. After January 1, 1914, state
funds were used for the support of
