The USDA has ask E. J. Bell,
Oregon stale wheat commission
administrator, to be the leader in
their study of the possibilities of
expanding Far Eastern markets
for Pacfie Northwest wheat, Jens
Terjeson, commission chairman,
Terjeson said that the USDA
has asked Bell to study dietary
needs and food supply in Japan
India and the Philippines while a
USDA chemist probes the milling
and baking end.
The wheat commission has

slate's department of agriculture
will send Archie Camp, La Crosse
wheat furmer and president of
the North Pacific Grain Growers,
Bell and Camp will meet with
northwest millers and grain ex
porters at Portland Monday to
get suggestions and arrange for
contacts with overseas represent
atives of Amercian firms. If
arrangments can be made, Bell
and Camp will go to Washington
state department, millers and ex
porters. The commission has an
economist in Washington gather
ing information and statistics in
market outlets in the Orient to
help the study.
"By sending these men over
seas," said Terjeson, "they wil
give us accurate, first . hand in
lormation on the best way to es
tablish a permanent market for
the suplus of wheat in the Unted
States. Our own region produces
100 million bushles of wheat an
nually of which 65 million bush
els must be sold outside the Paci
fic northwest. We hope they will
give us definite suggestions on
just what growers, millers and
exporters can do to maintain the
largest possible outlets over the
next 10 to 25 years.
'The project may take several
years and if a preliminary shows
ihat wheat would be beneficial
the United States may send 'food
missionaries' to the Far Eastern
people to show them how to pre
pare wheat products to suit their
tasles and methods of cooking.
Far Eastern people are getting
wheat now. They need wheat
because their population -is in
creasing under insufficient sup
plies of rice. We hope the project
will answer these questions
What kinds of wheat and flour
are the best for the people'
What's the most acceptable form
of gettng it to them? What else
can we do to gel the Far East
ern people to buy our wheat and
flower over a period of years?

Easier dish washing... jou II find the secret In petroleum
It may seem like a long trip to your dish
pan, but a good share of the "soapless
soaps" you use started deep in the earth in
an oil well.
These new cleaners, called detergents,
actually make water "wetter"... attract dirt
and grease almost like a magnet. They make
dishes sparkle, work well with nil fabrics
in hard or soft water, clean cars, and they
have many other home and industrial uses.
The practical means of making deter

basement with a bundle of ash.
"Is Smitty taldnjr in washing
those days?" I asl;od. "Not quite,"
she says. "He's just r"t in a new
automatic washing machine, so
the girls who work hove can pet
their laundry done while they're
eating luneh. Means more time to
relax at night and on weekends."
I thought whnt a swell boss
Smitty must be. Human relations
between the boss and employees
have certainly taken a big step
forward during my lifetime.
