Wheat nursery trial plots were
seeded the past week at the
Werner Rietmann farm north of
lone and the Frank Anderson
farm south of Heppner. These
nurseries are seeded each year
to compare varieties for height,
strength of straw, maturity dates.
yield, and any other quality of
advantage or disadvantage to
wheat. Nineteen varieties are
seeded in each plot, these being
seeded in rows of three, with
three series of the nineteen var
ieties so that an absolute yield
comparison can be made. Plots
are harvested each year for yield-

All Morrow county farmers are
invited to watch these plots and

The week of October 5-11 is
National Fire Prevention week.
While this week is set aside by
President Truman for special
emphasis on fire prevention, ev
ery week should be fire preven
tion week on our Morrow county
farms. Did you know that a fire
breaks out in this county once
every 20 seconds right around
the clock or 1,700,000 fires a
year and that about 11,000 Am
ericans lose their lives by fire
each year more than half of
them women and children. The
tragedy is that 90 percent of all
these fires are preventable.
On a daily basis there are 1,-
650 building fires,. 140 store fires,
6 church fires, 6 school fires and
3 hospital fires. If you value
your life, your family, your
home and your farm, be con
stantly on the alert to the caus
es of fire and how to eliminate
it. Remember ninety percent of
all fires can be prevented.
Now is the time for farmers
in Morrow county to be thinking
about planting trees for wind
breaks, even though actual plant
ing time is not until next spring.
It is an excellent plan to decide
now what kinds of trees are
needed and to find out where
they can be obtained.
The state forestry department
at Salem will have plenty of
black locust and Russian olive
trees for planting in the dry
lands of eastern Oregon, as well
as the usual conifers, such as
Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, Ar
izona cypress, and one or two
Charles R. Ross, OSC extension
forester, gives some advice on
to emphasize the importance of
early preparation of the ground
for planting," he says. "About
two-thirds of the seedlings will
die if set out on dry land that
has not been cultivated. To low
er the mortality it is necessary
to work the soil Just the same as
with other crops. On dry land
where there Is no irrigation, sum
mer fallowed soil is best, while
soil plowed in the fall is next
best. It is advisable to plow
deeply and prepare the soil
The extension forester also
pointed out the importance of
shallow cultivation of the trees
following planting. This should
be continued until the trees are
large enough to shade the
ground. It is also advisable each
year to replace all trees that die.
Oregon spring wheat crop is
now estimated at 4,704,000 bush
els. The winter wheat crop is
figured at 17,424,000 bushels so
state's total wheat crop is indi
cated at 22,128,000 bushels and
the 10-year "average production
of 20,585,000 bushels. The spring
wheat crop for the three north
west states is estimated at 37,-

The Hunting Is Good Here!
If you don't bag a buck during the deer season, re
member you can always get choice steaks and roasts
here. And pound for pound, you will pay less. Of course,
there is less excitement in merely going to the market
to shop, but we try to make it interesting for you on every
item you buy.
The best food hunters are not always those who
are termed "bargain shooters." The buyer who
knows food quality and recognizes fair prices is
the one who does the best "shootin' " in the long
run. That's why we're busy over here on the cor
