hardy barley believed to be resistant
to foot rot is being tried this year
by several Union county farmers
who were supplied seed by Dr.
Roderick Sprague, federal pathol
ogist stationed at Oregon State col
lege. Olympic barley is the name of
the new variety and it is being tried
on the farms of Henry Parsons, El
gin; Jim McKinnis, J. A. Garkill
and H. H. Huron, Imbler, and Claud
Woodell, La Grande. County Agent
Avery reports the plantings came

WEED CONTROL EFFECTIVE

control program carried out on the
Henry Howell ranch is apparently

liquid chemicals applied with press
ure pumps for several years, Howell
last fall filled boxes of his grain
drills with dry sodium chlorate and
spread the chemical on morning
glory infested land. The results
were apparently successful. Howell
has been able to use ' chemically
treated land again the third year
after chemical application, with
yields being nearly as good as on
adjoining untreated land.

No. 8 of a series.
And that's just the beer tax revenue this state
itself collects ... to lift the burden of direct tax
ation from your shoulders. Nationwide, beer
contributes over a million dollars a day to the
cost of government. Think what that means in
paying for relief, in public works, in old age
assistance right in your own community.
Then think of the million new jobs that beer
made. And then add to that a 100 million dollar
market for farmers' crops !
How can we keep these benefits ... for you
and for us? Brewers of America realize this
depends on keeping beer retailing as wholesome
a3 beer itself. They want to help public officials
in every possible way. They cannot enforce lawa.
But they can and will cooperate !
May we send you a booklet telling of their
unusual self-regulation program? Address
