Last week about 250 farmers
of central Washington, viewed the
research work and program be
ing carried on at the experiment
station at Prosser. Superintend
ent Harold Singleton and his staff
conducted very interesting tours
to the work being done with the
tree-fruits, small fruits, varieties,
agronomy, crop rotation, soil con
servation, insect control, and
others. It was felt that a very
worth while day was spent at
this station. It should be remem
bered that this is your experi
ment station, set up for your
benefit and should be used as
much as possible.
And speaking of research, the
mint question is one of those
problems with which we are still
struggling. Samples are being sent
in for analysis at weekly inter
vals. As yet no definite recom
mendations can be made but pre
liminary information leads one
to believe too early cutting is.not
advisable. More can be men
tioned next week.
DDT controls the ear worm.
DDT has been successfully used
against ear worm in sweet corn,
USDA reports. This insecticide
when mixed with mineral oil or
thrum in 1944 field tests made
in an emulsion gave better con
trol of ear worms than did pm
in Illinois. Before DDT can be
recommended for ujarm use, how
ever, scientists m t determine if
any poison hazard exists for men
and- animals in the residue left
from it.
How many farmers can judge
good-quality dry hay lying in the
field, the stack or the mow?
Leonard Hegnauer, Washington
extension agronomist says that
to many farmers a “ton of hay is
a ton of hay,” but careful buyers
look at the quality.
Farmers who know value in dry
legume hay are willing to pay
more when they can get the kind
with the following four points of
merit? ‘ _ _ _ _
1. Good color. Hay should be
bright green and free from staek
burn, weather stain and other dis
2. Leaves should be plentiful, as
food value of hay is stored mostly
in them.
fin 3. Stems should be light and
e. .
4. Hay should be free from
weeds and other foreign_materlal.
“A. ton of hay may be a ton
to some people; but high quality
hay is worth more than low qual
ity,” states Hegnauer. .
“Alfalfa hay that was cut when
the blomm was starting to go
to seed and which lay in the wind
row or swath until it was bleached
out probably is low in protein
and l“vitamin A and isn’t worth
muc .
“Farmers have the chance to
examine hay before they buy it.
If they consider the four points
of merit listed here, they’re apt
to get hay of a desirable quality;
and, likewise, sellers will find it
pays to grow the kind of hay
which is in demand. ‘ j
Farmers who are mowing chic
kens for meat poduction should
‘choose strains which feather out
and can be picked at an early age,
because these birds may be mar.
keted sooner at higher prices, ac
cording to Fred Frazier, exten
sion poultryman of Washington
State College.
A number of hatcheries in the
county, recognizing the advant-‘
age of fast feathering for early
marketing, pay especial attention‘
to providing the farmer with this
type of heavy chick, says Frazier.‘
‘At ten day of age, fast-feather
ing cockerels and 'pullets have;
tail feathers about one-half inch
in length, whereas, slow feathero,
ing cockerels and pullets have
‘practically no tails,” continues
iFrazier, quoting research men of
the poultry department of the
University of Maryland, where
a great deal of work has been
done in selecting poultry breeding
stock for meat production.
The Maryland researchers add
that “In fast-feathering chickens
the tail feathers begin to de
velop at about five days of age.
At 10 days of age, fast-feathering
chicks have wing feathers that
reach nearly to or beyond the
tail, whereas with poor-feathering
chickens the wing feathers do
not usually reach over half-way to
the tail. 7 _
Fast-feathering strains of all
varieties usually have wider feath
ers over all parts of their bodies
than slow-feathering strains, the
University of Maryland has dis
covered, according to Frazier.
Only fully ripened onion bulbs
can be expected to keep well in
storage, says John C. Dodge, as
sistant extension horticultunst.
The bulbs are just right for stor
age when the tops are dead and
shriveled and the outer skin is
completely dry.
Onions should be removed from
the field before the fall rains be
gin, so the bulbs won’t start sec
ond growth and become difficult to
cure, Dodge points out. Ripening
in the garden may be hastened
by allowing the soil to become
dry, bending the tops just above
the bulbs or by cutting the roots
with a spade just below the bulbs.
After the tops have become
partially dead, the bulbs should
be pulled and windrowed for a
few days or placed in shallow
trays or crates in an airy room.
When the tops have become com
pletely dry they should be remov
dry room, if possible.
Special precaution should be
taken that onions in storage do
not come in contact with damp
floors or walls. Trays or slatted
crates should be used if onions are
to be stored in the ordinary root
house or cellar where there is
considerable moisture in the air,
the hoticulturist states.
....While on a "peach tour" in
Yakima county recently, approxi
mately 70 members. of Washing
ton State horticultural association
displayed much interest in sprink
ler irrigation systems, fertilization
practices, insects and spray meth
ods, and new varieties of peaches
that may be used to extend the
canning and freezing season.
The use of the sprinkler irri
gation system in peach orchards,
which does away with the need
for rills and. is no more expen
sive than the rill system, was
favored by many of those making

Tells of Baltic
‘ (Continued From Page 1)
that day being . a high hill. The
number of the hill was 271. I’ll
never forget that. After we took
the hill, which took us only about
three hours, we had twenty-nine
men left in our company In about
two hours that morning we lost
that many men! We had only one
officer left that morning.
After Metz fell we received one
hundred and five replacements
and when the war ended we had
only about ten or fifteen of those
men left.
“We had it pretty easy for about
a month after Met: fell. We were
holding one of those large forts
at Metz, in which the Germans
hadn’t decided to give up yet. We
left there about two days before
the arrival of another outfit to
relieve us. 7
After we left there it got rough
again. We received replacement
after replacement—l don’t know
just how many each time, but we
got a lot of them! Many times
we would get men as replacements
and they would be hit or killed
even before we could get their
names. '
I wouldn’t attempt to tell you
what we went through, because
no one would believe it. And
really I wouldn’t want anyone
to believe it anyway—except the
men that went through it.”
- We lost more men fighting for
Metz alone then we lost from the
timeewe entered Germany until
we reached the Rhine River,
‘but it still was not considered a‘
‘major engagement. We also lost
a lot of men in the Bulge. I‘m glad
we weren’t in Luxembourg when
the Jerrys made that break-thru.
If we had been we would have
probably lost about all of the Dl
- We were there in four
days after the Jean started
through. At that time all that
happened we were in Sarr Lan
teren, Germany, and boy, it was
plenty hot there too! That was
a big town, an of the fightinz
being house to house. We .would
blow holes through the bmldings
and go through that way. because
if you ever went out on the street
you were just a “dead duck." The
division that relieved us there
Bulge got pushed backput of the
town across the Sarr River before
they could stop the Germans. 1
