Forum to consider elk
management plans
Management of the elk
herds in Eastern Oregon will
be the subject of an Oregon
Forum program to be held in
Heppner, at the high school,
the afternoon of Sept. 22.
Speakers will represent con
servationists, the timber in
dustry and sportsmen, said
Alwin-Marie Turiel, assistant
director of the Oregon Forum,
who was in Heppner this week.
She is hoping for an atten
dance of 75 to 100 people from
Morrow and Gilliam counties
and parts of Umatilla County.
Bill Hunter of Eugene, the
Forum director, is expected to
open the workshop with an
explanation of its purpose and
to present the speakers.
On the agenda will be
Warren Aney of LaGrande,
regional director of the Ore
gon Fish and Wildlife Depart
ment; Jack Ward Thomas,
biologist with the U.S. Forest
"Service research station at
LaGrande; Jim O'Donnell of
Spokane, representing the
Northwest Pine Association
and Beryl Stillman of Hepp

would also have a speaker
representing ranching inter
ests. The Oregon Forum is a
program funded by the Na
tional Science Foundation to
conduct a series of public
education workshops on the
slnte's forestry resources. The
elircl on (ho elk herds of forest
clearcutting is a matter of
concern to foresters and
sportsmen alike, Turiel said.
When underbrush is removed,
for example, the herds lose
their forage.
She explained the issue will
be considered in a draft
statement being prepared by
the U.S. Forest Service for the
Heppner and Elgin manage
ment units.

sticky feeling in the fields are
still with the wheat farmer.
Looking out across the fields
there is always a shimmer of
heat, but hot weather is good
for the harvest, and neces
sary, for the wheat does not
thresh out easily, or cut as
well when weather is cold or
damp. The farmer cuts the
wheat with one eye on crops
and machines, and the other
on the sky, watching for the
unwanted clouds and storms.
The harvest goes on, day
after day. The routine is
disturbed only by breakdowns
and weather. The crew gets
tired, and tempers get short as
the work goes on. ..but they are
still a learn. Urgent! Get the
crop in. ..all else can wait!
Eastern Oregon is summer
fallow country. This means
only half the acres are seeded
to crops each year. The other
half is plowed in the spring
and lies "fallow". This half of
the farm is kept clean of
weeds which would use the
moisture needed for next
year's crop. The land is
"weeded" as often as neces
sary.:. another costly opera
tion. Good rains or moisture in
the summerfallow means
going over the unseeded land
many times to keep it weed
free. Fertilizer is applied to
the summerfallow land, so it is
ready for the seed in fall. The
yearly harvest is the product
of two years work by the
