Several proposals looking toward
a general strengthening of state live
stock laws have recently been made
by a special committee of the Ore
gon Cattle and Horse Raisers' asso
ciation. Representatives of the association
met last week in the Salem head
quarters of the state department of
agriculture, at which time W. B.
Snider, president, appointed the
committee. Those present were par
ticularly concerned with the brand
ing laws, according to C. L. Jamison,
The committee favored a new
brand recording in 1940 and the pub
lication of a state-wide brand book
at that time. This was considered
necessary to eliminate obsolete
brands which have been on the state
records since the last brand record
ing in 1917. Changes in the present
brand inspection laws, the re-allocation
of brand inspection territories
and the removal of certain exemp
tions were also suggested.
Besides Snider, the special com
mittee consisted of Ben Nichols,
vice-president of the Western Ore
gon Cattle and Horse Raisers' asso
ciation; William Kitridge, president
of the Klamath County Stockmen's
association; Edward Kubli, secretary
of the Jackson County Stockman's
association, and W. W. Vaughn, Har

Processing is Way ,
To State Progress
Oregon today needs to do a "bal
ancing act," as far as its economic
condition is concerned, it is de
clared in a recently published report
of the Oregon state planning board,
"Oregon Looks Ahead."
Oregon's economy, the report
points out, grew from its soil. The
beginnings of the state were rooted
in agriculture. Grain, livestock, and
lumber were the exportable prod
ucts, and are still the principal com
modities of trade, but Oregon has
always been deficient in manufac
turing and processing industries.
Lumber and agricultural products
comprise about 90 per cent of Ore
gon's shipments to other parts of the
nation, the report points out Con
versely, manufactured articles com
prise about 90 per cent of the com
modities Oregon buys from other
Such industries as the manufac
ture of paper and pulp, the report
declares, should be fostered because
of its relatively high volume of em
ployment per unit of output and
because it presents further oppor
tunities for the processing of semi
finished products. Instead, Oregon
exports enormous quantities of pulp
for processing elsewhere. In 1936,
17,249,891 pounds of wood pulp went
to Japan and 1,016,895 pounds to
Industry within the boundaries
of Oregon should be fostered. The
state now has access through its wa
ters to potential electric power
equal to a third of that now in use
in the entire nation. Other indus
trial enterprises .could be made as
successful as the dairy products in
dustry, built largely by cooperative
efforts, and the fruit and vegetable
canneries, which have shown an ex
ceptional rate of growth, the board

College Student Diet
Improves Year by Year
The diet of college coeds, partic
ularly in relation to vitamin C, ap
parently improves in fairly direct
proportion to the time they remain
in school, judging from a prelimin
ary report on a four-state research
project in which the school of home
economics is participating. Dr. Mar-
garet Fincke, associate professor of
foods and nutrition, is in charge of
the Oregon phase of the work.
Research specialists in nutrition
at the Montana, Oregon, Utah and
Washington experiment stations have
since 1937 been conducting a coop
erative inestigation of the diets of
college coeds with respect to ascorbic
acid or vitamin C. This is the anti
scurvy vitamin, the best sources of
which, among the ordinary foods,
are citrus fruits, tomatoes, raw cab
bage, green peppers, and raw or
canned strawberries. The next best
sources are fruits of other kinds,
canned or raw, raw vegetables, and
potatoes. Other cooked vegetables
and milk also supply vitamin C to
The scientific measurements on
whether the coeds are receiving
enough vitamin C were made by an
alyzing urinary excretions of vita
min C. These showed, with more or
less definiteness in the different
states, that as a general rule the
freshmen students gave off less vit
amin C than upperclassmen, and

that graduate students gave off still
more, while the few faculty mem
bers checked showed a far higher
surplus of vitamin C.
This type of test is based on the
discovery that a body well "satur
ated with Vitamin C from the diet
will give off more than will a body
that is maintained at a low level of
this important vitamin.
After measuring the results from
the ordinary diet in this manner,
each student who joined in the tests
was given a heavily concentrated
dose of the vitamin, and the excre
tion again measured.
While the study is only in its pre
liminary stages, it is believed that
much new and valuable informa
tion may be obtained by this work
with adults, as heretofore most of
the nutritional research in regard to
vitamin C has been carried on with
small children or with patients in
