The 4-H’ers and adults with thel
know-how of keeping fruits and
vegetables in good condition from‘
the time they're picked, dug, or‘
pulled until they go on display
at the fair are the one: who usual
ly land in the blue-ribbon group.
That’s the opinion, at least, of
John' Snyder. extension hoftlcul
turist of the State College of
Washington. .
Most people, Snyder says, know}
the importance of selecting vege
tables of the same general size
and shape. They also know the
color, shape and size should be
typical of the variety. Form, size,
uniformity, and color, are impor
tant, of course. And each one ac
counts for from 15 to 20 points on
the judging score card.
In any fruit or vegetable exhi
bit, however, condition is usually
given the highest single score on
the card. For most exhibits, con
dition counts 25 to 39 points.
“Eb—nvdi t i o n, Snyder explains, I
means the fruit or vegetable must}
be in the “pink”. It shouldn’t 'bei
wilted or too ripe or too green.‘
And it should be firm and freew
from bruises or blemishes.
For people wishing to make a
pbrfect score on the “condition”
of their fair exhibits, Snyder;
passes along the following pointw
ers: _ ‘
Harvest your fruits and vegea
tables carefully. Pick the fruit‘
so there are no bruises, and dig‘

Life has been difficultin the
KCR offices this week. A slight
jbreeze which passed through these
.premim last Thursday has
reached gale proportions. Frankly
we’ve been trying to turn out the
sheet in surroundings which are
fast losing the appearance of a
newspaper office and taking on
all the aspects of a Wright Field
wind tunnel.
Reason? Somebody, wholly un
informed and sticking his aero
nautical neck into the nearest
whirling propellor, went way out
on a wing and stated, in the
sacred paragraphs of the Side
walk Reporter, that Wilbur made
that by-the - seat-of-the-jeans.

;who speak with the tone of an
'authority who might have help

flying disc to the latest jet
propelled Batwing. Invarhbly

carrots and other root 'crops so
that the skin isn’t torn or broken.
Use the same brand oof tenderness
in cleaning off excess dirt. Don’t
scrub.- That will probably break
or tear the skin or covering. If
you can, wipe off the loose dirt
with a soft, damp cloth. If that
won’t turn the trick, dip the'm
gently into water until the dirt
comes loose. But don’t leave them
in the water long.
Root vegetables such as carrots
and beets should have the leafy
tops trimmed to within an inch
of the top of the carrot or beet
itself. This prevents. moisture from
evaporating too rapidly through
the leaves. _ ‘
Store the fruits and vegetables
in a cool damp place until you’re
ready to take them to the fair.
The basement or cellar is a good
place. And if you’re afraid either
is too dry, add some moisture
yourself. Just put a gunny sack
over your exhibits and sprinkle
it with water.

Crash Near Here
Tragedy struck a death blow to
the holiday flight of a young
Roseburg family, when Mr. and
Mrs. Paul Lund and their two
small children crashed to oblivion
near Ritzville on Sunday, August
3rd. ' 1
Investigators who examined the ‘
wreckage of the two-seater PT-23,1
Which was not discovered until‘
last Saturday, stated that the‘
death dive had occurred when a
14-inch section of the plane’s pro—
peller had fallen off in mid-air.
The intense vibration resulting
apparently threw the small craft
out of control, __‘ _ _
? Officials at Vista Field were
:the last to See the Lunds, who
touched down at the local airport
that afternoon to refuel their
plane. Since they took off from
Kennewick shortly after 2 p.m.,
the good tail wind which was
then with them should have
placed them in the RitzviJJe vici
nity some 35 minutes later, Vista
field spokesmen reported.
The Lands, with a 4 year old
son and a 5 year old daughter,
were enro'ute from Roseburg to
Shelby, Mont. Although early.re
ported overdue it was three weeks
before searchers discovered the
plane’s wreckage. .
Bichland Youths
Crash Here
Four teen-age Richland youths
were involved last Thursday
evening in a near-tragic smashup,
when their car failed to negotiate
an oblique turn at the corner of
First Avenue and Fruitland St.
Apparently traveling at excessive
speed, the car ran out of control,
ripped across a lawn, carromed
off a tree, and then burst into
All four youths have been
booked by local police on charges
of intoxication. Two will appear
before juvenile authorities, while
the cases of. the other youngsters
will be heard at police court in
the near future.
One of the youthful passengers
sustained 'a broken foot; another
a broken nose and loss of blood.
A third boy ran from the scene
of the accident, and was found
by police about an hour later,
hiding in some bushes near a
residence on Kennewick Avenue,
three blocks away.
The youth told officers that
the boy, who ran from the scene
of the crash, had attempted pre
viously to restrain the driver
from starting out with the car
again. The driver is 'reported to
have struck the objector several
times, insisting on continuing. ‘

In reply to numerous questions
about the status of reserve offi

those of the regular army. All per

officers will draw full pay and

announced, to permit them to ac

said, to remove the objection that
