Prosser Station
Celebrates 20th
Annual Field Day
The 19th Annual Field Day at the
Irrigation Branch Experiment sta
tion, near Prosser. on Thursday.
July 27th marks twenty years of
progress in the experimental pro
gram of that station, according to
H. P. Singleton, superintendent.
Twenty years ago, after the funds
for the establishment of an Inwa
tion Experiment station were an
thorized, the first gathering of far
mers, business and professional men.
at the station, took place. At that
time the entire station was in sage
brush and on a chosen day all turn
ed out to grub and burn agebrush
and otherwise assist in clearing the
land so that the experimental pro
gram could go ahead as rapidly as
possible. ‘
Now twenty years lam visitors
will have the opportunity 'of spend
ing the entire day at the station, in
seeing and discussing the val-lam
projects relative to the many prob
liems of irrigation agriculture that
are under investigation.
U. S. Department Help.
The program of the station has
not been carried by state funds
alone. The United States Depart
ment of Agriculture through sever
al agenciw that are cooperating with
the Irrigation Branch Experiment
station has made it possible to great
ly broaden the field of service for
the station.
A number of the projects that can
be seen on field day or will be dis
cussed are: forage crops, grain
crops, soils and fertilizers, varieties
of trees and small fruits, verieties of
and fertilizers for truck crops, crop
rotations, salinity of soils‘ and irri
gation water, soil and water, conser
vation, wireworm control Sundial.

vegetables, alfalfa diseases, corn

Grass Fire Burns
30,000 A. Range
Mrs. Haulinger. Agent
WHITE BLUF'FS - A grass fire
across the Columbia River from
White Bluffs, which started Tues
day noon and at this writing (Wed
nesday noon) is still going strong,
has burned off over thirty thousand
acres of the- Berg Sheep company's
range and is traveling toward the.
A. D. Olson range. It. is thought
to have been started by some mo
torists who went through that dis
trict about a half hour before the
fire was noticed. Oecil Borden, Matt
Wiehl, Henry Young and I". H.
Wotton. the latter being caretaker
for the Berg Sheep Co. camp. work
ed several hours, and were finally
reinforced .by the arrival of Jay‘
O'Keefe and a helper, who came up
from Pasco to try and save the pow~~
er line to Tau-ton. Fast work with
a spring-tooth harrow hitched to
the back of a truck, kept the fire
from spreading to the camp itself
and the power lines, but some old
shacks in the path _of the flames
and many of the Reclamation survey
stakes were destroyed.
The average motorist who is not
acquainted with the possibilities of
this range land, would see no harm
in throwing out a match or lighted
cigarette, but in this case. it has
cost range owners several thousand
dollars, and anyone who would
carelessly or intentionally start such
a conflagration. should be punished
to the full extent of the law.
While the attention of most of
the townpeople was turned on the
fire across the river. the old house
belonging to the farm of the late
Hagebert Eilerton, now the proper-1
ty of M. F. O'Brien. was destroyed
by fire of undetermined origin.
