Work Given to
Congress at Start
Present Bill; Dams
on Snake Included
As congress swung under way
Tuesday, Inland Empire Waterways
association received this word:
"We are today introducing in both
houses a bill in exactly the form
submitted by you." The wire was
signed by L. B. Schwellebach and
Knute Hill, Washington senator and
The bill provides for the further
improvement of the Columbia river
at Umatilla rapids and the improve
ment of the Snake river between the
mouth and Lewiston, a program that
the waterways association has been
long working for.
Judge Bert Johnson, Morrow
county director of the association,
has been in correspondence with
Herbert G. West, executive secretary,
concerning the proposed bill for
some time. He heralds introduction
of the bill at this time as a welcome
step in the course of obtaining low
er transportation costs for the coun
ty's farm products.
The bill calls for construction of
dams at Umatilla rapids and at four
different locations on the Snake riv
er, with appurtenant structures such
as navigation locks and suitable and
adequate facilities for the passage
of fish, in accordance with former
recommendations of the chief of
engineers in his report on Columbia
and Snake rivers, Oregon, contained
in House Document 704, 75th con
gress, third session.
The bill further provides that in
making such improvement, due
consideration shall be given the in
terests of navigation, irrigation, flood
control, eventual power develop
ment, the preservation of the rec
reational, wild life and scenic value
of the area in which such improvt
ments are to be made, and other
Locations and types of all struc
tures shall be determined by the
chief of army engineers, and con
struction work upon any portion of
the project may be undertaken as
soon as the character of the work
for that portion of the project has
The secretary of war is further
authorized to expend not more than
$10,000,000 a year upon the construc
tion and improvement of the project
from funds before or after appro
priated for maintenance and im
provement of rivers and harbors.

Slated for Kamela
The Oregon Trail Ski club of Pen
dleton and La Grande today an
nounced preliminary arrangements
for the second annual Eastern Ore
gon Ski conference to be held Feb.
4-5 at Pendleton and at Tip-Top
mountain near Kamela.
The event, which will include
downhill and slalom races and ex
hibition jumping, is under the su
pervision of the Pacific Northwest
ern Ski association. Contestants are
expected from all states of the Pa
cific northwest and possibly Cali
fornia also will be represented.
Judges will be Harald Lee of Port
land and Darroch Crookes of Seattle.
Lee is one of the outstanding judges
in the west and Crookes, now with
the Union Pacific railway, is a for
mer Olympic team member.
Both men and women skiers will
participate. Saturday will be de
voted to registration and informal
skiing during the day and a queen's
coronation dance at night Sunday
will begin with a skier's mass in
Pendleton and then competitive and
exhibition events at Tip-Top moun
tain during the day. A conference
banquet will be held at night.
The queen contest will begin Jan
uary 14 and conclude February 4.
The Oregon Trail club expects to
exert every effort to make the events
at Tip-Top mountain attractive not
only to skiers whether expert or
novice but also to spectators. Ar
rangements will be made to pro
vide for ample parking space in
close proximity to the slide.
Early indications are that a dele
gation from this community will
participate in the conference.
Increase in Hog
Growing Seen in
A reasonable increase in hog num
bers on Oregon farms is justified
under present conditions, stated H.
A. Lindgren, extension livestock
specialist at Oregon State college,
in a recent analysis of hog produc
tion in the west, given over KOAC.
In the past Oregon farmers have
limited their hog production to ap
proximately the numbers needed to
consume farm waste, such as skim
milk, cull fruits and vegetables on
general farms, or in gleaning stub
ble fields in wheat areas. This policy
tended to maintain a favorable price
differential between Portland and
In recent years, however, the sit
uation has changed both as regards
this price differential and the avail
ability of low priced feed grain.
Seven of the 11 western states pro
duce fewer hogs than they consume,
the deficit for the entire area
amounting to about three million
head a year. It is interesting to note,
he points out, that if the average
wheat surplus in the Pacific north
west, amounting to about 40 million
bushels a year were all fed to hogs,
it would increase the production by
approximately this figure.
The big deficit in hogs is in Call
fornia, which would mean that ex
cess production in the northwest
would find its major outlet there.
The Los Angeles hog prices have in
recent years averaged about 34c
more than Portland prices, although
the freight from Oregon points would
be somewhat higher than to Port
Contrary to previous belief, it is
now known that wheat is just as de
sirable for fattening livestock as corn
or barley, when properly used, says
Lindgren. OSC experiments have
shown that it requires in the neigh
borhood of 420 pounds of grain to
produce 100 pounds of pork, where
grain alone is used. Skim milk or
good alfalfa pasture during the fat
tening period make possible a con
siderable reduction in the feed grain
Wheat at the present time is con
siderably lower than the average
price of corn on which middle west
ern farmers have been able to show
a profit in hog production. The rapid
increase in alfalfa acreage in the
Willamette valley affords additional
inducement for growers in that area
to give hog production more consid
eration, Lindgren concludes.

MAKES FINE HITCH
T. L. Fields of Wasco, with Fields
garage of that place, was a business
visitor in the city Tuesday. Mr.
Fields is manufacturing a tandem
tractor hitch for Moline disc plows

market, and is advertising it through
the columns of the Gazette Times
