INCREASE IN PRICE OF FARM LAND Here are some highlights of intrest to agriculture from price administrator Chester Bowles' recent statement before the sen- ate banking and currency com- mittee in which he reported the record of price and rent control for th past two years. "Absence of control over he prices of real estate, urban and rural, is bringing about a boom in this field reminiscent of the lush twenties" "Farm land prices .rose 43 per- cent during the period March 19- 39 to November 1944. For the last year and, or/e half the increa- se has been at the annual rate of about 14"percent, and it is esti- rhated hat by the spring of this :ear "farm land prices will have increased by 50 percent since the spring of 1939, we have been ser- iously concerned with the certain effect inflationary movement in real estate upon the purchases by discharged veterans under the provisions of ,the so-called G. I. Bill. Mr. Bowles said that tht pro- blem was a matter of concern ,to a numbr of agencies, and that al though he did wish to be thought to speak for them, nor to express an opinion about whether or not OPA was the appropriate agency for control, he did urge the com- rnitVee to ggive its attention to the problem. * * * Turner Brown, Clyde Miller, Mis Marie Hansen, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Herr and Mr. and Mrs. George Ives attended the Bouska sale in Bridgeport Wednesday. .. ,NOTICE HERALD-REPORTER, BREWSTER, WASHING1ON CONTROL WIRE- WORMS IN GARDEN Wireworms in gardens can be controlled so that they will do very little damage through the ap plication of naphtalene flakes, ac- 'cording to Vernon Chapman, Ok- anogan County Agent. This mat- erial should be applied while the garden is being prepared in the spring. According to information just received from the wireworm ex- periment station at Wallla Walla, 300 pounds of crude naphthalene flakes applied and mixed with the top 9 inches of soil will kill a ma- jority of the worms which cause the damage to truck crops. It should be applied at the time the soil is plowed, and immediately discd to mix the naphtalene thr- oughout the entire soil layer. Planting should be delayed for about three weeks after the treat- ment is made. PHONE LOCAL ITEMS TO 37 HDRALD-REPO RTER HAZARDS OF FRUIT AND VEG. CROP Th price administrator be- 1/eves in the principle of" adjust-l ing maximum prices of fresh fruits and vegetables for. hazards. Howeer the "disaster clause" has been a source of frequent and serious increases exen in the good crop year of 1944. In a year of poor yields it could easily.have a major effect upon the cost of living Mr. Bowles called the com- mittee's attention to possible al- ternative solutions, for th pro- blem of providing adjustments for crop loss. H suggests "com- pensatory payments made exclu- sively to growers, on an insuran- ce basis, or otherwise." "This would", he saidj "constitute a far less costly and inflationary means of recognizing the hazards of fruit and egetable produc- tion." Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Dicus and Pfc. Norbert Dicus and wife went to Tonasket on Wednesday to vis- it .the Everest Dicus family. Nor- bert and wife will soon return to Dugway Proving Grounds at Toole, Utah.
