AAA Heads to be

of Wheatmen's Meet
Pendleton One of the largest
mass meetings of wheat growers and
general farmers in many years is
expected here next Saturday, Feb
rary 11, when R. M. "Spike" Evans,
administrator of the AAA, is sched
uled to make his first visit and first
address in this state since his re

Evans will be accompanied on this
brief western tour by N. E. Dodd,
Haines, former ' state committee
chairman for Oregon and now as
sistant director of the western di
vision of the AAA. Before reaching
Pendleton Evans will have given'
only three other addresses on the
tour, one each in North Dakota, Mon
tana and Spokane, Wash. The meet
ing here will open at 2 o'clock.
The situation confronting wheat
growers will be the chief topic of
discussion at the meeting, although
other matters concerning the agri
cultural conservation program will
be touched upon. Evans has just re
turned from attending a wheat con-1
ference in Canada at which world
wheat problems were considered.
Besides presenting the results of
the Canadian conference Evans will
take up matters of export possibil
ities, wheat marketing quotas, pro
cess taxes and other means of fi
nancing the agricultural program.
Possible nature of the 1940 program
will also be touched upon.
The meeting here will also afford
Oregon growers the first opportu
nity to hear a report from their rep
resentative to the recent wheat con
ference in Washington, D. C. Sim
Culley, Weston, will make such a
report just before Evans speaks,

most pleasant working conditions
possible attain. A company esprit de
corps has thus been obtained in
which the speakers reflected pride.
Local people were given liberty to
ask any questions, which were an

Leash vouchsafed, he had never
sued nor had never been sued in
court. His company has always dis
counted its bills and has paid its
way wherever it went. He said they
were not asking Heppner for any
financial assistance though they
would not refuse to accept the site

No one can say accurately where
production service ends and mar
keting service begins, hence the
most effective service in improving
the marketing of Oregon's farm pro
ducts can be provided through the
very men involved in serving pro
duction activities. Such is the opin
ion expressed by Wm. A. Schoen
feld, dean and director of agriculture
at Oregon State college, in an ad
dress before the annual convention
of the Oregon Dairymen's associa
tion in Eugene.
Dean Schoenfeld reviewed the
marketing service of the college to
agriculture over the past 25 years
and pointed out that this service had
been constantly coordinated with
the efforts of other leadership in
the field of agriculture and the in
dividual enterprises themselves.
"Oregon among the states has the
oldest continuous service to coop
eratives," Shoenfeld pointed out. "It
is now in its twenty-fifth year. The
state has upwards of 200 agricultural
cooperative associations serving 42,
000 farms doing an annual business
of approximately 44 millon dollars."
The dean pointed out that one fea
ture of the ixk million dollar small
seed industry in Oregon has been
the development . of the Blue Mt.
Seed Growers cooperative at La
Grande, which in three years has
become the largest marketer of
crested wheat grass seed in this
country and one of the largest han
dlers of alfalfa seed.
The speaker referred to the spec
ialized marketing unit at the state
college headed, by Paul Carpenter,
which provides service in marketing
organization, transportation, mar- j
keting finance and related work.
This unit, he says, is very much un
After reviewing the marketing
accomplishments in the fields of
dairying, grain growing, horticul
ture, food industries, market news
service and others, Dean Schoenfeld
said that under the present organi
zation all production specialists wbrk
closely with the marketing special
ist, and in fact are "in marketing
with both feet all the time."
"I believe any expansion of mar
keting service should rest firmly
upon the foundation already laid
and similar methods should be
used," he concluded.
