Winter Wheat Brings High Price
In spite of an increasing population,
there has been no substantial increase
in the polio death rate, says Dr
Gaylord Anderson of the University
of Minnesota school of public health
• When an infantile paralysis epi
demic occurs, there are two out
breaks." Dr. Anderson remarked.
‘‘One is an outbreak of polio, ond the
other an outbreak of hysteria."
The doctor points out that more
cases of polio are now being reported
because additional types of cases are
now included in the statistics.
In addition, better methods of
diagnosis increase the figure as does
the fact that many states did not
previously have statutes requiring
formal reports on polio cases.
Figures released by Dr. Anderson
show there were less than 1-2 deaths
per 100,000 persons from polio in any
year for the last 16 years.
In the disastrous polio year of 1916,
there were ten polio deaths for every
KANSAS CITY—After spirited bidding, the first carload of
winter wheat, a ripple in what will become a flood of golden grain,
was sold for $2.44*4, regarded as an excellent price Last year’s first
carload brought $1.99*4 Harvested in Temple, Okla., the first of the
new grain was graded as No 1 hard It test-weighed 61.7 pounds and
protein content was 12 per cent
Warm, dry weather in southern sections of the winter wheat
belt resulted in early maturity of the advanced grain. As the harvest
progresses, .Massey-Harris Self-Propelled combines like the above
will again be seen in large numbers, each machine combining 50 or
more acres per day Rains halted a critical stage in crop prospects
in some large-producing areas Timely moisture brought some im
provement in yields and the Department of Agriculture's report of
154 millions in Kansas alone may be topped by 10 million bushels.

Rock Creek Timber
Up For Auction
All salvable timber in the Rock
i Creek area south of Mill City will be
offered at oral auction by the state
forestry department at Salem, Mon
day July 24 at 10 a. m.
The sale involves a minimum of
of eight million board feet of timber,
Lynn F. Cronemiller, assistant state
The sale covers salvage of patches
and scattered stands of yellow fir,
snags, windfalls, hemlock and red
cedar on about 7,000 acres of state
forest land. This area was logged off
some twenty to thirty years ago by
the Hammond lumber company.
Present high lumber values make
it possible to remove this type of
material. It would not be economic
ally feasible to cut this timber under
ordinary conditions. Removal of the 1
old stagnated timber and replacement
with young fast growing trees is a
part of the state forestry plan to get
the land back into maximum timber
Minimum stumpage prices that will
be considered are listed as follows:
Old growth Douglas fir—$5 per
thousand board feet.
Western red cedar and hemlock
—-$3 per thousand board feet.
