"Many persons do not seem to real

The visit of Paul Maris, the new
state leader of county agricultural
work," to The Dalles and the recent in
stallation of that work in Wasco
county requires some general under
standing of the function of that office,
writes the new county agent, A. R.
The office of county sgent or county
agriculturist is a cooperative one be
tween tbe county, the state and tbe
U. S. department of agriculture and
each of these departments bears a por
tion of the expense. Heretofore the
state and United States departments
have worked out many valuable discov
eries which have saved many millions
of dollars to the farmers of the nation.
The control of the cotton boll weevil
alone aaved many millions of tbe far
mers of tbe south. Thst is only one of
hundreds of examples of tbe applica
tion of modern science to agriculture.
Now the climate and soils of Oregon
are so many and varied in type that it
has been difficult for the United States
department or tbe stste department of
sgriculture to fit the msny new ideas
to all local conditions. The same
might be ssid of any other state.
Also the average farmer haa not bad
access to many of the valuable things
that the experiment alationa of stste
end government are working out
Publicity of such methods is the work
of the published bulletins, the stste
extension workers snd the county
sgent Then too, tbe college and tbe
government can find out better what
the needs of each individual locality
are. Information gained through tbe
county agent can be used by a great
many men, while information sent to
one individual usually never gets
spread about The eotnty agent then
la the great cooperative agency for the
solving of local problems and their
One man can do little toward the
salving of great problems, but by co
operating with many men the county
agent can get tbe ideas, an experience
of each and ny systematic experiments
reach some definite results. As Mr.
Maris pointed out one man may have
discovered some valuable facta but
they seldom get over tbe fence that
separates him from his neighbor. The
experiences of several successful far-
mere brought out by discussions at tbe
recent O. A. C movable school at
Dufur and The Dalles showed tbat a
definite system of orgsnising and
publishing these valuable ideas would
go far toward improving conditions in
(n Wasco county there are problems
of fruit pollination, pruning, and
spraying, soil handling to conserve
moisture, improvement of grain varie
ties, fertility problems, use of summer
fallow, production of cheap feed, in
troduction of new planta auitable to
the region, control of plant and animal
pest, improvement of breeda of farm
animals, msrketing, and organisation
of farming communities. Msny of
these problems can be worked out by
cooperative methods between tbe var
ious farmers and farmer'a organiza-
tiona and the county agent, with tbe
help of state and national experts.
Some idea of what tbe county agents
of Oregon sre attempting to do will be
gained from the following extract from
the Rural Spirit.
"The activities of the county agri
culturists covered a wide range of sub
jects, as counties in all sections of the
state are carrying on tbe work.
"Cooperative marketing of farm
producta received a great deal of
attention. The county agriculturists
have taken the lead jo farming organ
isations for marketing poultry and
eggs, livestock, potatoes, seed corn
and dairy products. Considerable
progress has been made in the direc
tion of decreasing costs of production
by better seed selections and improved
methods of handling soils, establish
ment of crop rotations, and so forth.
Organization of rural communities
along lines important to each has been
successfully accomplished in Crook
county. Tbe existing farmer's organ
izations have been greatly strength
ened and many new ones organized in
"Grasshopper, potato beetle and hog
cholera ravages were checked, rabbit
poisoning campaigns conducted with
good success and ravages of pear
blight, scab and other fruit diseases
combatted. Much cooperative demon
stration work with farmers was con
ducted with new or improved varieties
of grains and grasses which in a
majority of cases showed increased
yields over those in genearl use. This
was especially true of red clover,
sweet clover, Sudan grass, oats,
wheat, barley, field peas and dry land
alfalfa in cultivated rows. Corn grow
ing contests were carried on in Marion,
Malheur, Lane, Coos, Tillamook and
"Drainage districts have been organ
ized and surveys secured. Several
small drainage and irrigation systems
have been planned. Boys' and girls'
club work has been carried on in co
operation with tbe state department of
public instruction and the industrial
club department of the O. A. C. exten
sion service. Severs) men have been
of great service to the county and
local fairs in rearranging premium
lists and greatly improving the quality
and number of exhibits. New crop
testing and breeders' associations
have been organized and those contin
ued which were stated in 1914. Insti
tutes and moveable schools have been
held at several different places in each
county, the county agriculturists being
assisted by the specialists of the ex
tension service o the Agricultural
"The work as outlined for 1916 will
be continuations of projects already
under way and tbe addition of some
new ones. Advisory committees of
leading farmers and one member of
the county court will be formed in each
county where such committees have
not already been formed. These com
mittees will meet with the county
agriculturist from time to time to
advise with and aid him in working out
the particular agricultural and rural
social problems of the county."
It will thus be seen that tbe main
work of tbe county agent must be car
ried on through projects with some of
the leading farmers of the county and
this work will be used later for demon
strative purposes of results are valu
able. It would be impossible to resch
all of tbe 200 or more farms of Wssco
county in sny one yesr and secure defi
nite results. It will also be observ
able that the results of the work must
at first necessrily be limited but that as
months and years go on, it must con
tinue to grow more useful. The broad-
minded individual must see that the
field of agriculture is tbe broadest field
in tbe world and tbat one man cannot
expect to be familiar with every line
of agriculture in all its details. But
the opportunity to eall in specialists
from tbe outside to help solve the
knotty problems of the farm aa they
arise in esch locality and the subse
quent publishing of this knowledge to
all concerned ia incressed by the exist
ence of the county agent. The office
is for tbe use of the people of the
county in the broadest possible wsy,
and farmera are invited to cooperate to
the fullest extent"
