Rex Wheat Found
High in Vitamin
Content By USDA
That both chemical analyses and
baking tests show flour made from
Rex wheat to be of superior quality
in many respects is shown in official
reports of the federal bureau of
plant industry received at Oregon
State college. Rex is the variety
constituting 80 percent of Morrow
county's wheat production the last
two years, according to report of C.
D. Conrad, county agent.
Among other qualities Rex is
shown by these tests to have the
highest carotene content of any wes
ten wheat with the exception of Jen
kin club, the favorite winter wheat
of western Oregon. Carotene is the
basic source of vitamin A and, un
less bleached out, gives flour a slight
Although Rex wheat has tested
considerably high in carotene con
tent, flour made from it bleaches
white without difficulty when de
sired, the report adds.
Officials of the Eastern Oregon
Wheat league, concerned with recent
milling discounts against Rex wheat,
are pointing to these federal reports
as indicating the surjerioritv of Rex
flour. Rex, a hybrid originated at
the Moro branch experiment station,
has become the favorite winter
wheat in most parts of the Columbia
basin because of its high yields,
smut resistance and hardiness.
Millers have discounted the wheat
after reporting difficulty with it in
certain milling processes.
In aking tests the federal bureau
has reported Rex as unusual in that
it combines a long "doughball" time
usually associated with hard wheat
with large particle size characteris
tic of soft wheat.
Rex or the Rex selections are list
ed among the varieties that made
the best cookies and cakes, while as
to bread the report says that "it is

Federal Income Tax
Man Scheduled Here i
In addition to assistance available
to everyone at the office of the Col
lector of Internal Revenue at Port
land, Oregon, in the making of re
turns for the federal income tax for
1940, a deputy collector will be in
Heppner on February 24 to give spe
cial assistance to anyone desiring it.
Federal income tax this year will
be based on gross income instead of
net income as in former years, an
nounces J. W. Maloney, collector.
The base also has been changed, so
that single persons whose gross in
come is $800 a year and married
persons whose combined gross in
come is $2000 a year, must file a
return. Last year ' this base was
$1000 for single persons and $2500
for married persons.
The exemptions have also been
lowered to $800 for a single person
and $2000 for married persons. The
credit of $400 for each dependent
has not been changed.
Last year nine million income tax
returns were filed with the Bureau
of Internal Revenue. This year, part
ly because of these changes, the
bureau expects fifteen million re
turns to be filed.
To meet this great increase the
bureau has augmented its force of
field deputies. But if the taxpayers
wait, as many of them do, until the
last minute to file their returns,
congestion will result, and many
persons may not get their returns
into the collectors' offices by mid
night March 15.
With the income tax the govern
ment this year is also collecting the
Defense Tax, which is an added rea
son for promptness in filing the re
turn. This tax and the income tax
can be paid 'in one lump sum or in
four equal quarterly installments.
of interest to note that Rex and the
two Rex selections were highest in
loaf volume even though they were
inferior in grain."

FARMERS MAY NOT
CUT TAILS OFF COWS
Is it illegal to cut off a cow's tail?
And how about plucking live geese?
These two humane-angle queries
were directed to Dr. W. H. Lytle of
the animal division of the state de
partment of agriculture, whose ans
wer in each instance was "no."
A farmer in one section of the
state was reported to be docking the
tails of his cows, leaving them about
a foot long. Presumably the tails
were a nuisance at milking time.
Dr. Lytle pointed out that there
is a law which makes it illegal to
mutilate animals. A jail sentence
and-or fine up to $100 is the legal
penalty. This same law exempts,
however, the dehorning of cattle
or the docking of horses or sheep
as practiced by stockmen. .
On the premise that geese are
animals, this same law would make
illegal plucking of live geese.
