More Crested Wheat
Planted in Oregon
Additional crested wheat plant
ings of close to 50,000 acres in the
Columbia basin wheat belt are be
ing made this season, constituting
the largest acreage ever to be plant
ed in the state in one year, reports
E. R. Jackman, extension crops
specialist at OSC.
Three factors are chiefly respon
sible for this rapid increase, says
Jackman. In the first place, many
growers had to reduce their sum
merf allow acreage this fall in order
to complete compliance under the
1938 AAA program, and become eli
gible for wheat loans. In the second
place, under the 1939 program, pay-

A True Story from the Records of Pacific Power & Light Company
Fire Destroys Arlington Water System
P. P. & L. organization responsible for rapid
restoration of service!
1. On July 4, 1931 a blister
ing hot day v-fire destroyed
the pump house and motor of
the Arlington, Ore., water sys
tem, leaving the city without
water except for a few hun
dred gallons in the storage
2. Before water could be
pumped again, a new motor
had to be secured and installed.
A P. P. & L. man, who was at
hand, volunteered his assis
tance began making long
distance telephone calls. The
warehouses were closed, but
he finally located a motor dis
tributor at an ocean resort.
3. This man sped back to
Portland, opened his ware
house and assembled a crew
of electricians, who worked so
skillfully that a motor adapt
ed to Arlington's needs rode
the express car of the evening
4. At midnight the motor was
skidded from the car to a wait
ing truck. A company crew
summoned from Kennewick
had hung new transformers,
replaced poles. Another crew
from The Dalles had cleared
debris and built a heavy plat
form for the motor.
5. Before 5 a.m., the motor was in
stalled, and the pump operating. Ar
lington again had running water, large
ly because P.P. & L. men and materials
are "Always at your service".
The 761 men and women who comprise
the P.P. &L. organization are exper
ienced in meeting emergencies. Fires,
floods, storms and other catastrophes
are constant foes of electric service,
which must be maintained in spite of
them or restored as quickly as possible.
In preparedness, crews of skilled men
and material resources are so organ
ized that they may be promptly mobil
ized at any point in the company's
12 districts in Oregon and Washington.
The Pacific Power & Light Company
people who live and work in your com
munity have also helped make possible
the steady reductions in your electric
rates. Today, P.P. & L. rates are among
the lowest in the United States, and will
continue to drop as more and more peo
ple take full advantage of our low-cost
dependable electric service.
