"A tract of land conilitlng of l.dOO

employed by tbo Btato nndor tho
"'After twonty por cent Is paid on

$l,C0O Is to bo used In the .construe

the nocfltiaary stock and Implements.
This loaves a bolonco of $"00 to car
ry lio px-norvlco man until ho gets
his first returns from his crops."
Tho first land to bo secured' for
soldier settlement under the above
plan Is a tract of 1240 acres In the
Squaw Crock Irrigation District In
Central Orrgon, according to Secre
tary Quaylo of Ihn Btato Chamber.
Half of this land Is Irrigated and will
bo sold to tlio ox-saldloin at from $30
' "Tho 8fiuaw Crwk land is only tho
'beglnhlnr;," said Hocrotory Quaylo.
"Wo plan to litivn'land roady for tho
ex-rfil(tlorn In both Eastern and west
em Oregon by tho time tho bonus Is
available. An effort' will bo mada
to placo tho soldier In tho section to
which ho Is suited.
"The Idea of this plan Is to tako
raro of Koldlorn who wlnh to get on
tho land, but who havono funds with
which lo make a first payment. Un
der this plan both tho ownor and the
eoldler aro proloctod. Thoro are
largo areas of land In the State await-

noldlors entitled to the bouus who
are anxious to get on the soil. Wo

Elvers, Stato Adjutant of the I.oglon
today. "NVTion It Is Bbnernlly known
that ex-soldiers who aro without
funds or property can buy land un
der this plan, I bollovo that a higher
