On 1932 Tax Rolls
(St. Helens Sentinel-Mist.)
One hundred sixty thousand,
seven hundred fifty dollars and
sixteen cents has been collected
on the 1932 tax rolls to date, ac­
cording to records in the sheriff’s
office. AH rumors and opinions to
the contrary, this is only a 5 per
cent greater delinquency than that
of last year, $174,000 having
been collected at this time last
year on the 1931 tax.
The total tax for Columbia
county for 1932 was $702,891.70,

LATE FORAGE CROPS ARE

Judging from the personal calls
and letters to the experiment sta­

late forage crops, growers fully
realize the necessity for emergen­
cy planting this year to replace
the normal feed crops destroyed
by the cold weather of the past
winter.
Soy beans are the only re­
maining legume crop possible in
Oregon for planting at this late
date, but they are usable over a
