Automobiles will jump to a premium and bears out our statement of former date

, Federal Trade Commissions
; Report Will Come Before
r -
Washington, Aug. 10, With the
federal trade commission prepared to
present legislation necessary to place,
transportation and distribntion of meat
under the railroad administration to
smash the "packers' trust," members
of congress today were divided on the
commission's remedy.
The packers' ease will be presented
to congress when it reconvenes-
Houso members here were inclined
to opposo the proposals, declaring the
railroad administration has enough to
do and that the food administration
should move to reduce meat prices be
fore anything else is attempted.
'The best (iud quicke ( ftvay to
reach the meat packer would be to reg
ulptb prices, but the federal trade
commission way also seems to be an
effective one," said Representative
Avers of Kansas, author of a general
price-filing bill.
"I am not a prophet or son of a
prophet, but I am ready to prophesy
that if anything of the sort suggested
by the federal trado commission is
done it will result in the people paying
largely increased prices for meat pro
ducts and securing much less satisfac
tory service," said Representative
Moudell of Wyoming.
"My best guess is that the president
has too much horse sense to follow the
federal trade commission in this ad
vising the government to bite off a few
more chunks of business control before
it has time to assimilate the business
affairs which have already been taken
"The housewife who has ent a eon
to war wants something done to etop
profiteering before anything else," de
clared Representative Focht of renn
sylvauia. Livestock men hero scoffed at the
packer pica that only two per cent is
made on meat production. E. C Lns
siter, membor of the market committee
of tho American National Livestock
association, declared, granted the pack
ers do only take two per cent, their
profit is made on every turn-over of
capital, which is eleven times a year,
and therefore makes the total profit on
capital invested twenty two por cont.
Ho called attention to the fact that
during tho four war years the five big
packers have mado $140,000,000 in
profits. He declared a report being
prepared by the agriculture department
will show that meantime tho farmer
is making no profit whatever in eattlo-raising.
This bulletin contains general informa
tion concerning road conditions in or
near the. National Forests of Oregon
and Washington, based on data furn
ished by the field rn.cn of the Forest Ke-serve.
A dangorous forest-fire season is at
band. AH forest travelers, autoists,
campers, fishermen, hunters, and others
are warned to be careful with fire in tho
open. The present extremely dry con'
dition of the woods, due to drought and
drying winds, makes them especially
susceptible to fire, and unusual care is
necessary to prevent destructive eon
flagrations. Tho cooperation of every
one using the forests is needed to keep
them green and attractive. By build
ing small camp fires in safe places and
completely extinguishing tluem before
leaving ,one of the chief causs of forest
fires may be removed. Smokers should
be cautious with burning tobacco and
matches. No patriotic tourist will pur
posely start a fire and endanger the
timber and forage of the forests. Aside
from the commercial value of the woods
which can be figured in. dollars and
cents, thero is their value from a re
creational and aesthetic ' standpoint
point which can only be estimatcd.IIolp
keep the forests valuable by preventing

One Man Discs 27 Acres a Day with tho New
TI V7R1AA xn
Discing is rapidly and economically
done with the new Moline-Universal
Tractor, Model D, one man with an
8-foot tandem disc harrow covering
27 acres in ten hours. With a 10-foot
disc harrow he covers 38 acres, and
with a 20-foot peg-tooth harrow 76
The light weight of the Moline
Universal Tractor, 3,380 pounds,
makes it especially adapted for disc
ing and similar work, as it does not
pack the soil and uses but little fuel,
running on less than half throttle
most of the time. It is light, but
more than enough power to cull two
14-inch plows at high speed, ajl its
weieht being traction weight.
The Moline-Universal Tractor at
taches directly to the implement and
forms a single, compact unit with it
that is controlled by the operator
from the scat of the implement,
where he must sit to do good work.
One man with the Moline-Universal
docs as good work as two men with,
the average tractor.
The Moline-Universal is adapted
if or all classes of farm work. Its high
clearance, ZO'i inches, makes it ideal
for cultivating, and it is equally well
fitted for planting and harvesting. In,
addition, it has ample power for belt
work, pulling a 24-inch grain separa
tor or 10-inch ensilage cutter with,
There is work on the farm every
day in the year for the loline-Unt-versal
Tractor. It will do every field
operation that can be done with
horses and do it better, faster, and
cheaper. This is why the Moline
Universal really replaces horses, and,
at the same time, by enabling one
man to do much more work than
ever before possible, solves the farm
help problem. .
The detailed construction of tho
new Moline-Universal, Model D, is
the best it is possible to manufacture.
Perfected 4-cylimlcr ovcrlicad-valve
engine, electric starting and lighting
system, complete enclosure of. all
working parts, and fifteen Hyatt roll
er bsarmgs, are a few of the main
features. . , .
