Wild Life Intrigued
by Orchestra Music
Luring wild game to its death by
means of music may not be legal
but it holds possibilities if the ex
perience had by Charles McElligott
and Mr. and Mrs. Warren Blakely
last Sunday counts for anything.
While riding m the mountains
Sunday afternoon the party saw
several deer in the vicinity of Ar
buckle mountain. The animals were
little concerned over the presence
of an automobile and while not
lingering long after its approach
they just casually faded out of the
picture. McElligott turned on the
radio at one spot and the deer be
gan to venture closer. This expeir
ment was tried in several places
where the animals were spotted and
had the same result in each instance.
They would stand still and listen
intently, turning their heads first
one way and another trying to detect
where the strange sound was com
ing from. Music seemed to have a
special appeal to them, the experi

Barley, Wheat Loans
Will Assure Incomes
Regardless of uncertain markets
due to troubled world conditions,
Oregon farmers who grow wheat and
barley will have assured incomes as
a result of 1940 federal loan pro
grams just announced.
The state AAA office in Corvallis
gave as an example a typical Uma
tilla county farmer who markets his
wheat in Pendleton. If he has com
plied with the AAA farm program,
he will be eligible for a loan of
58.6 cents a bushel on his No. 1
soft white wheat. In addition, he
may earn conservation and parity
payments totalling 19 cents a bushel
on the normal yield of his acreage
allotment. If he has an average
yield, this means he will have a
guaranteed return of approximately
78 cents a bushel for the wheat har
vested this year.
Eligible barley growers may bor
row 35 cents a bushel for No. 1
grain on the basis of farm storage.
Rates will be seven cents less if
the barley is stored, in warehouses.
Interest rate is 3 per cent.
