son of Russian immigrant parents, is a boy farmer, but he's no

producing spuds. .
No "victory garden" is Harry's potato patch. This year he'll
dig up enough potatoes to feed a city the city of Cincinnati for a
week. His "patch" for table potatoes comprises 135 acres on eight
farms. In addition, he had 60 acres planted to certified seed
potatoes, tomatoes and hybrid corn.
Harry was graduated from high school only last spring, but
before he got his diploma, he had already earned a net profit of
more than $6000. He is successful as a grower because he re
members that selling is important, too. One year, by smartly
storing his crop for a few months, he made $1000 extra.
Typical of Harry's enterprise is the way he relieved his neigh
bors of their fears about getting their grain threshed this summer.
He solved the. problem by buying a combine for $800 and doing
the job, making $300 profit in one week.
' This year he is taking a marketing course sponsored by the
National Junior Vegetable Growers association and is competing
for one of the cash awards from a $5000 scholarship fund pro
vided by the A & P Tea company for students in 30 states.
Harrv started his career as a farmer at the age of 14. He
joined the Future Farmers of America at his high school, and, as

for his seed that first year, but

PORTLAND, Sept. 3 (.!')
Temperatures ranged from the
low 30s to the middle 90s in
Oregon last week and light rains
fell over the greater part of the
state, the department of com
merce's crop-weather summary
showed today.
Harvest and threshing of grain
were delayed slightly by ruin,
but little grain remains in the
fields. Corn is late but is mak
ing good progress.
Picking of peaches and Bart-
lett pears continued with yields
generally satisfactory, although
in the Rogue river valley there
are some frost-marked pears.
Prune picking for fresh ship
ment in northeastern counties
was delayed by rain and labor
shortage. The western Oregon
prune crop is light but the size
of the fruit good.
Cutting, stacking and baline
of hay and threshing of legume
and grass seed continued with
some local delays by rain. Most
wild hay has been cut and stack
ed. There has been widespread
irrigation of pastures, whero
water is available. Unirrigated
pastures and ranges are dry and
some green feed is being used.
The condition of livestock most
ly is good. Some lambs are be
ing sheared.
Much flax has been pulled
and hauling Is in progress. Pick
ing of early hops continues in
the southern part of the state
and is beginning elsewhere.
Shipping of early potatoes in
eastern counties is nearly over.
Fall lettuce in that region is be
ing planted, and good germina
tion is reported. Picking of
beans for canning is in full
swing. Watermelons and canta
loupes are fairly plentiful.
