In view of the very poor crop condi
tions this year in the Willamette valley
and the question as to the cause of the
same, Mr. E. B. Townsend, manager of
the Portland Flouring Mills Co. in Al
bany, wrote to Prof. A. B. Cordley, of
the department of zoology in the Oregon
agricultural college, calling his attention
to the presence of insects found general
ly in wheat straws and asking his opin
ion as to their connection with the crop
failure. Prof. Cordley's reply follows'
"The insect to which you refer as feed
ing in the joints of wheat straw is com
monly known as the joint worm and be
longs to the chalcid genus isosoaia. It
is an insect capable ot doing considera
ble injury, in fact there was one period
during the first half of the century when
the farmers in certain parts of the east
were compelled to abandon tile grow th
of cereals for a short time. So far as I
have observed in this vicinity, however,
only a small proportion of the stems are
infested and 1 believe that this insect is
only in a very slight degree responsible
for the general failure ot the wheat crop.
In certain sections in the lower part of
the valley the wheat has been badly in
jured by the true Hessian tiy, and of
course throughout the valley it has per
haps been slightly injured by the aphis,
but undoubtedly most of tile injury is
due to our system of farming, and to un
favorable climatic conditions. By the
growth of wheat after wheat, without
the intervention of clover, or other simi
lar crops, particularly by our system of
summer fallowing, a very large propor
tion of humus has disappeared from the
soil, which, in consequence, has a ten
dency to become cloddy. The frequent
rains of last summer, alternating with
drying weather, probably increased this
tendency, and as there was practically
no frost last winter to break up these
clods, the soil has remained in a condi
tion very unfavorable for the retention
of the capillary moisture which is so es
sential to plant growth.’’
“Through the months of June and July

Damage to last year’s wheat crop
by rains, and the poor crops of this
year, have left the wheat farmer in
poor condition financially. It is en
couraging to find however that the
farmers generally are not discour
aged, although very much disgusted.
The change from a one-crop way of
farming to a system which will in
clude live stock and the growth of
forage plants in rotation with grain
will come about much quicker than
anyone could have hoped, and men
who for many years have been un
wavering in their fidelity to wheat
are now looking for sheep or other
stock and inquiring about the cul
ture of clover, rape and other forage
plants. When the next year of very
poor wheat crop comes in the Will
amette valley, it will bring distress
to but few, because nearly every far
