Hyslop Impress Left on Grain Growers of Eastern Oregon Almost any amount that Morrow county farmers and business men might give toward the George Hys lop Agricultural Research Memor ial fund would not equal the annu al increased income here resulting from his work, Stephen Thompson chairman of the committee, said in reporting good response to the fund campaign. Thompson cited "Prof Hyslop's work in originating seed certifica tion, working for varietal standard ization, promoting grain grades and bulk handling, and establishing the Moro and Pendleton branch stations as examples of his effective service to the farmers of the Columbia basin. When Hyslop first came to Ore gon, he found eastern Oregon wheat growers producing 15 to 20 varieties, all of which were so bad ly mixed that 40 percent of the wheat marketed was discounted 3 to 10 cents per bushel. He started picking out the cleanest fields of the best varieties, inspected them before harvest and "certified" such wheat as good for seed. Many, say Hyslop deserves nat ional recognition as founder of cer tified seed as this was the first timle grain seed, at least, was cer tified in the United States. Esti mates are that elimination of mix ed wheat is easily worth $25,000 a year to som(a of the larger wheat growing counties for the past 30 years. Wheat grades in the early days were just about what each buyer decided they would be. "Prof de cided this was undlair to producers so advocated federal grain grades Ldrninistered by unbiased trained officials. National grain authorities freely acknowledge that the pres ent national system of grain grades is partly due to his work. Grain was all sacked and handled through flat warehouses mostly owned by wheat detalers when Hys lop began his work in Oregon. He believed in the economy and effi ciency of bulk handling and spent week after week during the first world war arguing for farmers' ele vators now common throughout the state, including eight large public elevators and several privately owned in this county. Along with his fight for bulk handling, "Prof later successfully defended the system when a suit was brought in Umatilla county claiming that bulk handling reduc ed the value of steed grain. He also helped feke the fight for a fair re lationhip between coast and Chi cago wheat prices over the head of grain administrator ,to Presidfent Wilson, where it was suocesful. Hyslop was also the man behind the establishment of the Sherman county tend Pendleton branch ex periment stations which developed improved cultural practices and practically all the grain varieties row used in eastern Oregon. Whatever money is raised in the present state-wide effort will b.-' kept as a perpetual fund, the inter est from which will be used to help continue the service to Ore gon farms that was the life work of Professor Hyslop, Thompson concluded.
