$32,000 Auto Chassis
Given to Oregon State
Oregon State College A cut-away
Chevrolet chassis which wa exhibit
ed at the New York world fair and
which is valued at $32,000 has been
donated to the school of engineering
at Oregon State college for use in
the automotive engineering labora
tory. The 1940 chassis was presented to
the college by the Chevrolet Motor
division of the General Motors cor
poration through the Brands Motor
company at Corvallis. R. T. Ure,
representing the corporation, was in
Corvallis recently checking the ex
hibit with W. H. Paul, associate pro
fessor of mechanical engineering,
who was instrumental in procuring
the equipment for the college,
very piece of the equipment is
cut open so that observers may see
all moving parts. Valve action, pis
ton movement, transmission gears
and differential gears are exposed
so that without any explanation one
may see where the power comes
from and how it is transmitted. The
bsttery is even made of glass.
"The corporation realizes that Or
egon State is advancing rapidly in
engineering," Ure said. "Never in
the country's history has there been
such a demand for engineering ad
vances and never has this profession
held a greater future for the many
young men who adapt themselves

Plan, Estimate Sheets
Signed in AAA Work
The county AAA office has been
busy the past few weeks assisting
farmers and stockmen who intend
participating in the 1941 Farm and
Range program to fill out and sign
their farm plan and estimate sheets,
according to Henry Baker, chairman
of the county committee. He went
on to say that the purpose of the
forms is to inform operators of their
approximate allowances and to help
them plan their 1941 program to
get the most benefit from that al
lowance. He added that in order to
get a 1941 farm or range payment
it was absolutely necessary that the
forms be signed and, on file in the
county office prior to May 1, and
that whils practically all wheat
farmers and a large percentage of
the range operators had already
signed there were still a few who
could qualify for a payment who
had not yet signed.
In reporting on other phases of
the program Mr. Baker said that
field work in connection with 1941
wheat seedings was practically com
pleted, and that more than 97 per
cent of the wheat farmers were
complying with their acreage allot
ments; and that while the parity
payment rate had not yet been an
nounced, applications for payment
were being prepared and signed so
that as soon as the rate is announced
there will be no delay in making
Study of Pacific Ocean
Needed, Governor Says
Oregon State College A keener
appreciation of the possibilities of
the Pacific ocean and an increased
study of these possibilities were ad
vocated by Governor Charles A.
Sprague in a recent address to the
student body of O. S. C.
Governor Sprague explained his
belief that there is too much of a
tendency for people of the coast to
look inward while disregarding the
potentialities of "this great ocean
which lies at our doors." He said
more study should be made of using
the Pacific not only as a highway
for commerce but as a means of ob
taining food and other products.
