OREGON'S WHEAT PROBLEMS OUTLINED
IN SERIES OF NEWSPAPER ARTICLES
(Editor's Note: Upon the prosperity
of the wheat farmer largely depends
the prosperity of this section of Oregon.
The AAA farm program has been of
fered as a means of aiding prosperity,
and wheat farmers of Morrow county
are cooperating with it in the belief
that it will help bring better times.
This is the first of six articles by the
Morrow County Agricultural Conserva
tion association explaining this aim of
the 1939 farm program.)
In China, the poor man's food is
rice. In Ireland, it is the potato. In
the United States, it is bread. No
matter how little money a man has
in this country, almost always he
can get enough bread to eat.
This shows the dependency of this
nation upon the wheat grower, for
bread baskets are filled first of all
when shopping is being done.
When the Agricultural Adjust
ment administration was set up,
this fact was recognized, and an im
portant place was given wheat. It is
shared only by corn and cotton.
The AAA farm program recognizes
that the wheat farmer plays such an
important part in the life of the na
tion that his prosperity must be kept
intact. And the program has found
him very willing to cooperate with
his neighbors in attempting to bring
back this prosperity.
In the state of Oregon, 45,000 far
mers are cooperating in the farm pro
gram. Here in Morrow county, six
hundred farmers are taking part.
Their one aim is to place farming
on a level whereby it enjoys a fair
and proper income.
In 1938, Morrow county produced
approximately 2,000,000 bushels of
wheat. Oregon produced 23 million
bushels of wheat. The nation pro
duced 931 million bushels.
One might think that Oregon far
mers could easily get rid of their
wheat since it is such a small part
of the nation's total production. But
the nation has a surplus, and Ore
gon's crop only adds to that sur
plus. People of this nation use 700 mil
lion bushels of wheat a year. Last
year they grew .931 million bushels.
Once they could get foreign nations
to take the remainder, but now oth
er countries are trying desperately
to be self-sufficient.
If wheat farmers are to prosper,
either new markets must be found
of they must keep production down
so they don't raise more than they
can sell. The AAA wheat program's
big aim is that of solving this prob
