Few motorists stop to think of the
possibility of their automobile's
catching fire, says Secretary of State
Earl Snell, and for that reason they
are often panic stricken when a fire
does break out, whether under the
hood or in the upholstery. If a fire
extinguisher is not handy, the sat
est thing to do is to throw dirt or
sand on the fire, Snell says, water
is to be avoided as an extinguisher,
since it causes a blaze in oil or gas
oline to spread rapidly, rather than
putting it out. The ignition switch
should also be turned off at the first
sign of fire.
Crocket Sprouls of The Dalles and

Gets New Head
F. F. Hill has received appoint
ment as governor of the Farm Credit
administration, succeeding W. I.
Myers, recently named head of the
Department of Agricultural Econ
omics at Cornell University. Hill has
worked continuously at the Farm
Credit administration since it was
organized in 1933, and has been dep
uty governor since 1934.
Although still only 37 years old,
Hill is widely known for his work
in agricultural economics and farm
financing. His experience was drawn
upon heavily by the Farm Credit
administration in perfecting the
"normal value" appraisal policy
which enabled- the Federal land
banks and Commissioner to refin
ance over two billion dollars of farm
mortgage debts following the break
down of agricultural credit in 1932-
Born on a farm near Kingman,
Kansas, not far from the heart of
the winter wheat belt, Hill lived
there until he was 12 years old when
his family moved to a 1500-acre
farm near Davison, Saskatchewan.
At that time American farmers were
homesteading new Canadian spring
wheat land. While he was growing
up, going to school and farming,
what Hill saw of the boom and col
lapse in commodity prices and land
values during and after the World
War period impressed him lastingly.
At Cornell university where he
was awarded a scholarship in 1923,
after graduating from the Univer
Gazette Times, Heppner,
sity of Saskatchewan and working
for a time as agricultural extension
agent, Hill specialized in farm man
agement, agricultural credit, coop
erative marketing and other studies
accenting agricultural stability.
Later, at the Federal Land Bank
of Springfield, Massachusetts, where
he was agricultural statistician and
comptroller, and afterward at Cor
nell as Research Professor of Land
Economics,. Hill made exhaustive
studies which showed the vital im
portance to farmers of good soil in
lifting mortgage debt. He was among
the first to point out the almost uni
versal tendency in American agri
culture to over-value poor land and
under-value good land in apprais
ing farms for mortgage loans.
The new governor has also taken
a leading part in developing the 535
production credit associations and
13 banks for cooperatives, in line
with the Farm Credit administra
tion's policy tf providing a complete
and permanent system of coopera
tive credit for farmers.

session of a fine buck. Mr. Cox re
