Washington, D. C, Jan 27. Seed
for cover crops is rapidly becoming
one of the important resources (yf
Oregon. In 1942 there were 236,300
acres planted to variolas seeds and
this year the acreage will be ex
panded, according to AAA. Four
years ago there was very little cov
er crgp seed in the state but through
the soil building program . of
Triple A, together with a fair price
to the grower, the industry has
spread from the Willamette valley
into Eastern Oregon
Hairy vetch, 125,000 acres; rye grass
Acreage figures of Triple A are:
84,000; Austrian winter peas 78,000
Willamettet vetch 22,000; common
vetch 14,300, crimson clover 13,000.
The first year of the program Triple
A set a price of 3 cents a pound
for peas, 7.5 for hairy vetch, and
last year paid 5 cents a pound for
peas, common vetch and rye, 6.5 for
Willamette , vetch, and 10 cents for
Cash price for the 1943 crop,
which has not been planted, it is
computed, will bring into the state
almost $20,000,000. A decade ago
the seed business was almost no
thing. Salem distillery applied for per
mission to maunfacture industrial
alcohol fiom surplus wheat. The
government agency addressed threw
cold water on the proposal by say
ing that the chief disadvantage of
manufacturing on the west coast
lack of market and that there is
a tank car shortage which prevents
the product being shipped to the
middle west or east.
War man power commission is
still trying to devise a method of
providing farm labor on a volun
tary basis. This year an average
of 400,000 men will be inducted
into military service each month
and this will further sap the supply
of farm labor There have been
talks between Claude Wickard, food
administrator, Paul McNutt, man
power commissioner, and General
Hershey seeking some way to give
farmers a break. To date nothing
has been accomplished. Mr. Mc
Nutt is thinking of using women to
replace manpower on farms but
this is only a makeshift, for com
paratively few women, and espec
ially those from the cities, can
stand farm work. ,

When Eating in The Dalles
GEORGE COOK, Prop.
What the farmers are trying to
figure out is how they can raise
more food in 1943 than they did in
1942 (the alltime record) with less
help and less machinery. Depart
ment of agriculture answers this by
telling the farmers to work harder.
Big factor in raising crops is wea
ther and no one is promising any
thing on that.
Potato growers of Redmond, On
tario and Klamath basin can logic
forward to the time when people
are rationed on spuds .The allow
ance for 1943 will be at least 10
percent under consupmtion last
year and it may be cut still deeper.
OPA is discovering that with
people turning to potatoes to fill
out their diet the spud supply is
tightening A general expansion of
acreage planted to netted gems is
predicted this year.
To promote the "good neighbor"
policy in LatinAmerica the govern
ment has had three old Norwegian
freighetrs modernized and made in
to refrigerator ships .These boats
are to bring hundreds o boxes of
pears from Argentine, together with
grape.1?. There are immense quanti
ties of pears in warehouses on the
Pacific coast in all the fancy pear
growing districts (Medford, Hood
River, etc.) and these Argentine
pears will be in direct competition
with the domestic article. It has
been estimated that in excess of 260
freight cars will be required to
move the imported pears, which
incidentally, are consigned to an
importing firm in New York city.
Reason assigned for having Argen
tine ship the fruit is that the nUiti
ed States hopes to win away that
country from Germany.

PAYMENT FOR PRODUCTION
To encourage extra production of
potatoes, dry beans and fresh veg
etables, production pavmeni will
be made on acreage of each crop
between 90 and 110 per cent of a
farm's goal. Payment rates are 50
cents a bushel on the normal yield
for potatoes, $20 an acre for dry
beans and $50 an acre for fresh
FARM LABOR POOL
Men who can qualify as skilled
farm laborers, and who are not
now employed in jobs entitling
them to deferment, cannot bs in
ducted into the armed forces until
the U. S. employment service has
been given 30 days in wh'ch to
place them on a farm with the re
quired war units rating. This will
give the employment service an op
portunity to build up a farm labor
pool and is another reason why
farmers should! register their labor
needs with the employment service.
FARM VICTORY FORNT
The size of the victory American
farmers scored on the food produc
tion front in 1942 ia even larger
than first reported. Final USDA
figures show the 1942 output of
livestock and livestock products up
12 percent over 1941, as compared
with goal of 9 per cent. Vegetables
for processing were up 13 percent
all crops nearly 14 percent, and to
tal agricultural production more
production than 12 percent, double
the gool. Total cash farm income
is estimated at close to 16 billion.
MIXED FEED PRICES
Poultry and livestock mixed
feeds have been bought under OPA
price control, in a move toward les
sening pressure against price ceil
ing of such foods- as milk, butter,
cheese, eggs, meats.
CERTIFICATES OF WAR
Farmers wishing to appeal for sup
plemental gasoline on certificates of
war necessity are advised by the
county transportation committee
that they should furnish sufficient
information showing why supple
menal gasoline is needed.
The transportation committee is
finding it impossible to grant alp
lowances requested by some farm
ers because there has been insuffi
cient information on the applica
tions to show that additional gas
oline is needed.
The farmers who will not be
needing additional gasoline until
the second, third or fourth quar
ters are advised to hold off making
their appeals until such time as
they know quite definitely how
much gasoline they will need.
