Vivid airplane shots of the Col
umbia river‘ basin—ranging from
the mouth of the mighty river to
the picturesque Wallowa mountains
and from the fruitful Yakima val
ley to the pine-blanketed Deschutes
country—are one of the many fea
tures of “24-Hour Service," a sound
movie scheduled for free showings
at the Roxy theatre here Monday,
September 23.
Into every corner of the terri
tory it serves. Pacific Power & Light
company, producer of “24-Hour
Service,” sent the cameraman to
record the industry and resources
of each locality. Historic spots, out
standing scenic points and local
people at work and at play thru

the aerial portion of the picture was
taken was Roy Shreck. aerial weath
er observer once lost in the wilds
of western Idaho for several days
following a crash on one of his
meteorological flights.
Basically the picture is a fast
moving and dramatic story of the
electric power industry, picturing
the complex generation, transmis
sion and distribution processes of
modern electric service. On this
groundwork is built the whole fas
cinating p'cture of this part of the
Pacific Nzrthwest, with many se
quences showing various local in
dustries of the region at work.

Workers Should Inquire
Before Leaving for Jobs
Workers in this area who think
that jobs are plenr'ful elsewhere in
the state are asked to check with
the Walla Walla or 5 ice of the Wash
ington State Emp'oyment Service
before moving to some other place
looking for work.
John H. Thomas, manager of the
Walla Walla office of the State
Employment Service said today:
“The Employment Service is able to
tell workers what jobs are open
thruout the state. or when such jobs
might be open. If the workers will
ask us about possible job openings
before starting out, we will be able
to put them on the right track.
“Just a few days ago Jack E.
Bates, Commissioner of the State
Office of Unemployment Compen
sation and Placement pointed out
that a. contract has been let does
not mean that jobs are available,
and workers who migrate to that
point find no jobs and spend their
money needlessly. The State Em
ployment Service aims to prevent
this useless migration.
Mr. Thomas pointed out that
there is no charge for using the
State Employment Service facili
ties either to the employer or the
wprker. “The Employment Ser
vice,” he said, “is ready at all times
to help either the worker or the

cessful in fattening cattle on grain
and have made fairly goood profits.
He advised the farmers, however,
who are anticipating feeding cattle,
to carefully study the factors which
may cause sharp changes in beef
Turning to these factors and the
present cattle situation, Cagle as
serted, beef cattle in the United
States have been on the increase for
the past three years and the in
crease is expected to continue on
the upward trend for several more
Even other cattle have shown an
increase and a considerable number
are being placed upon the market.
The number of cattle offered on the
market during the last half of this
year may be less than the same
period of 1939, he said, because
many of .the farmers are holding
their cows and heifers for breed
ing purposes and to build up their
herds. This is due, Cagle said, to
the favorable range and pasture
Rising industrial activity, which
is partly stimulated by our defense
program and our exports of war
materials, will probably mean larg
er consumer incomes during the
rest of this year at least.
This in turn means a stronger
demand for meats and many other
farm products, Cagle asserted.
Imports of beef during the first
five months of 1940 have shown a
decrease of 30 percent from the im
ports of last year during the same
period. The import quotas are be
ing filled and the total number of
cattle brought in so far is 332,000
head. -
Cagle warned farmers planning
to buy feeder cattle to make sure
of the best purchase because the
price of feeders is high, and a sud
den change in market could be
Discussing feeding of cattle as a
highly speculative business, Con S.
Maddox explained to the group the
various phases of cattle feeding.
Maddox also emphasized the im—
portance of purchasing feeders at
reasonable prices and told the cat
tlemen lower feeder prices might
come from late buying. Likely the
price would not be higher then and
they might possibly be a little
cheaper, he said. _
Washington is a deficit area of
good quality fed cattle which have
a strong demand during the sum
mer months, he asserted and add
ed that stockmen should be inter
ested in feeding cattle because of
the large variety of feeds available.
In discussing the safe margin of
profit between the purchase price
of feeder cattle and the sale price
of finished cattle, Maddox pointed
out five influential factors. He
said higher priced feeders require
a lot margin; cheap feeds means a
low margin; the greater the gain
the more margin is required; good
quality cattle make larger gain and
therefore require a smaller margin;
and high market costs necessitate
larger margins.
The type of cattle to feed, Mad
dox said, would depend upon prices
of various grades, feeds to be used
and the season which the finished
cattle are to be marketed.
In comparing the feed require
ments of the various ages of cattle
it was shown that calves make the
same gain on 25 percent less feed
than two-year-old cattle.
When calves are ready for mar
keting they can be held for 30 to 60
days in‘the hopes of a more favor
able market, while two-year-old
cattle must be sold when they are
finished because the cost of gains
is not economical.
Maddox pointed out, however,
that the two-year-olds make rapid
gains and. use a larger portion of
roughage than calves.
Experiments on feeding calves,
made at Washington State College,
indicate about three pounds of al
falfa per head .per day was suffi
cient if calves received an abund
ance of other good quality hay,
Maddox declared.
Molasses has been found to be
worth from 75 to 100 percent of the
value of grain when the calves are
fed not more than three pounds
per day and it is used to replace the
grain. There is no difference be
tween beet and cane molasss in
feeding value.
