Loans on Wheat
Pass Million Bushel
Volume in State
Sherman County in
Lead; Wallace to At
tend Kansas Meet
With more than 100 warehouses
throughout eastern Oregon approv
ed for storage under the wheat loan
provisions of the AAA, actual loans
are being made rapidly at present,
according to latest reports to the
state office at Corvallis, The chief
limiting factor is the delay in get
ting the large Portland terminal
warehouses qualified under the act,
says N. C. Donaldson, secretary of
the state AAA committee.
At the end of the third week in
; September, offices in seven eastern
Oregon counties reported 366 loans
made on 1,475,000 bushels. Loans at
:that time totaled $629,257.11, or an
average of approximately 43 cents
a bushel. While this is considerably
below the average loan rate at
country points for No. 1 wheat, the
loans reported include all classes
Sherman county, with every
warehouse except one qualified to
store wheat on which loans have
been made, has taken the lead in the
number of loan applications com
pleted. A total of 227 loans had
been made there, involving 730,000
bushels, with total loans of $371,620.
Umatilla county, which eventually
will probably show the greatest num
ber of loans, was slow getting start
ed because of delay due to the
warehouse situation. All warehouses
in that county, with the exception
of one chain, had been approved
late in September, and it was ex
pected to qualify within a few days.
The importance being attached to
the wheat situation in Washington
is indicated by the calling of a
meeting of state committeemen from
wheat growing regions at Hutchin
son, Kan., Thursday, September 29.
Scheduled to address the commit
teemen at that time on an import
ant statement of policy was Secre
tary of Agriculture Henry Wallace.
His speech was to be on the subject
of the present situation of American
wheat farmers in the light of ex
isting conditions here and abroad
and included a discussion of plans
for administering the AAA wheat
program during the coming twelve

cyclists is being studied by a com
mittee of Portland citizens repre
senting civic organizations and city
and state officials, according to Sec

tect the lives of thousands of young
sters who cross the street several
times daily on their way to and
