A less plentiful supply nf nitro
gen fertilizer This xcht than an;
limp during the past three years
Is predicted by Arthur S King
soils specialist of the O S C. ex
tension service, even though pro
duction is greater than ever he
fore and there is no longer any
diversion for war purposes.
"Farmers are using more fer
tilizer and available supplies are
falling far short of demand."
King explains. 'The shortage of
fertilizer ts not confined to any
one section of this country. It is
As to straight nitrogen fertil
izer, however, the northwest is
in a more favorable position than
any other section of the country,
according to King. The govern
ment owned fertilizer plant at
Salem, now operated under lease
by the Columbia Metals corpora
tion, has been a big factor in
maintaining a nitrogen supply
in this area.
To assist the plant at Salem in
planning production schedules
and for protection to themselves,
growers and dealers will be wise
in ordering fertilizer supplies this
year well in advance of actual
need. King states.
Originally the production of
this plant was earmarked by the
government for use by farmers
in the three northwest states of
Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
This limitation no longer exists.
King states, but company offi
cials have indicated a desire to
supply local needs first.
While ammonium sulfate has
been available in substantial
quantities in this area through
the Salem plant, in the south and
east the only nitrogen available
to farmers has been in the form

Malheur county has received a
StVXJO check from the National
Foundation for Infantile Paraly
sis to pay for medical care and
hospitalization of 25 persons
stricken with infantile paralysis
in 1947, Felix A. Montes, state
representative of the national or
ganization announced in Port
land. The average cost of a polio
case today is estimated at $2000.
Judge Robert D. Lytle, Malheur
county chapter chairman, re
quested the aid after chapter
funds from last year's March of
Dimes were exhausted. One half
of the money collected in the an
nual polio fund drive in January
is allotted to the National Foun
dation for research, education and
the epidemic aid fund.
Since 20 cases of polio per'l-.U-000
population is considered ;m
! epidemic Malheur county exper
ienced a severe outbreak in 1947,
with 25 paralytic cases for a pop
ulation of about 20,000.
Judge Lytle estimated the
SC000 would be needed to pay
for treatment of polio patients in
the next 60 days, after which the
1918 March of Dimes contribu
tions will be available.

GIVE TO THE MARCH OF DIMES
with sales of bull calves from
the dairy herd at Oregon State
college where men in dairy hus
bandry department have decided
that sale of bull calves for breed
ing purposes throughout the
country is not done on a scien
tific basis. They have worked out
a plan to improve the situation
atd are going to put it into prac
tice immediately in the college
herd of Jerseys and Holsteins.
Under the new plan, prices for
dairy bull calves will be set en
tirely in accordance with a math
ematical index figure showing
the inheritance each calf posses
ses for production. To arrive at
this figure all records in the first
three generations of the pedigree
will be converted to a 305-day
mature equivalent basis, with
Thus the highest record of the
first three dams on the sire's side
will be averaged, as will the first
four dams on the dam's side.
These two figures will then be
i averaged to give the inheritance
index of the calf to be sold.
Whenever a tested sire enters
into the pedigree its equal par
ent index will be used in place
of all preceding dam records. The
same procedure will be followed
for tested dams.
A scale of prices has been
agreed upon for calves under six
months of age starting at $150
for those with an inheritance in
dex of 449 pounds or less, and
increasing by $50 or $100 steps up
to $600 for those with an index
of 650 pounds or more. Thus a
calf between 450 and 499 pounds
will sell for $200, while one with
an index between 550 and 559
pounds will sell for $400. For
calves more than six months old
an additional $50 will be charg
ed. The program is intended to
l give greater assurance that any
j bull calves sold from the college
l herd will transmit a high level
! of production.
