Farmers of Morrow county are
familiar with the aims of the ever
normal granary plan for agricul
ture how it hopes through loans,
insurance and acreage reduction to
solve the major problems which
have beset the wheat farmer during
A review . of accomplishments
shows us that many of these aims
are being realized.
. This year, for example, wheat
farmers of the nation stored up un
der loan a total of 85,000,000 bush
els of wheat. In Oregon, nearly $4,
000,000 was loaned on 7,300,000
bushels. In Morrow county, about
$433,390 was loaned on 866,780
bushels. As a result of -these loans,
farmers were able to get a cash re
turn on their 1938 wheat crops im
mediately after the harvest, despite
low market prices.
Then, crop insurance. Recent fig
ures show that nearly 300,000 United
States farmers have applied for
' policies on this year's crop. In Ore
gon, 839 farmers are taking part,
guaranteeing themselves wheat this
year regardless of what happens.
In Morrow county, 45 farmers are
participating in the insurance program.
