week took a landmark that was
very dear to our hearts the lone
pine, directly south of Hardman on
the Katherine Mclntyre ranch.
When Emil Johnson owned the place
the tree was struck by lightning, 17
years ago, but it lived on and wea
thered many storms. It must have
thought that terrible wind was caus
ed by the Japs who were so close
to our beloved shores, and gave up
in despair. If it could have only
known that those tricky Japs are
just small wind to us, and "we stand

Farmers Urged to Turn
Wheat Into Pork
Oregon wheat farmers, particular
ly in the Columbia basin and Blue
mountain counties, have an excel
lent opportunity to increase the pro
duction of hogs during the war per
iod through greater use of wheat as
feed, according to O. S. C. livestock
specialists, who are authors of a
new extension bulletin No. 582, which
deals with this subject exclusively.
The eight-page leaflet discusses the
demand for pork in the western
states, the high value of wheat as a
hog feed, methods of feeding, the
use of pasture in connection with it,
and other factors in the' successful
management of hogs.
Investigators in Oregon have long
considered wheat a valuable feed
for swine and many years ago stress
ed its value in comparison with
barley and corn. Recent feeding ex
periments have emphasized this
value while the national defense pro
gram has created an opportunity in
Oregon to market more of the re
gion's surplus wheat through this
channel, the bulletin points out.
