Families moving into new ir

help in developing housing plans
suited to the region.
The workshops are arranged
by county extension staffs. The
study and work sessions during
the two days are directed by a
trio of extension housing experts
from the State college. They are
H. E. Wichers, specialist in rural
architecture; Helen Noyes, econ
omist in home management, and
Arthur J. Cagle, economist in
farm management.
The nine county workshops
are part of a statewide series
which the Extension Service
has been conducting in the state
for two years. The purpose of
the training is to enable farm
families to break the main bot

Progress in controlling smut,
lodging, and winterkill, major
production hazards of winter
wheat in the Tri-state Palouse
area, has been assured by the
release of two new wheats de
veloped at Washington State
\ The two new short-strawed
soft white winter wheats, named
Elmar and Brevor, were devel
oped at WSC by Drs. S. P, Swen
son, dean of the College of Agri
culture and former head of the
department of agronomy; and
Orville A. Vogel, U. S. Depart
ment of Agriculture agronomist
stationed at WSC. Plant breeding
at the WSC stations is carried
on cooperatively by the State
college and the U. S. Department
of Agriculture.
Announcement of the release
of the two wheats was made by
Dr. Mark T. Buchanan, WSC’s
agricultural research head, fol
lowing successful commerclal
scale milling and baking trials
of the two new grains. Both
wheats have been proved to pro
duce excellent pastry flours.
Robert Fletcher, Walla Walla,
field secretary of the Pacific
Northwest Crop Improvement as
sociation, stopped at the office
and told of these tests. The asso
ciation sponsored the tests in
cooperation with the State col
lege and Pacific Northwest mill
ers. Milling tests were passed by
both wheats earlier this month.
Elmar wheat, in particular, is
welcomed as a valuable aid in
the Pacific Northwest’s anti
smut campaign. The new wheat
has the Hymar resistance to
dwarf smut and to apprOXimate-

Popular Wilh Farmers
Veterinarians and farmers are
making a lot of use ct the year
old livestock and! p ultry dis
ease diagnostic labératory at
Already the laboratory has
had what Veterinary Dean R. E.
Nichols of Washington State col
lege called today “an excellent
growth of function which should
be of considerable value not only
to farmers in the area, but to
practicing veterinarians, and the
teaching and research people of
WSC.” He said the laboratory
also acquires data useful to
teaching and research while pro
viding services. _
Actual work at Prosser is
carried out by Dr. H. A. Trippeer
as veterinarian in charge. The
laboratory is the result of co
operative efforts at poultry and
dairy raisers, feed dealers, the
State Department of Agriculture,
the division of veterinary scr
ence of the WWSC agricultural
experiment stations and the Ir
rigation experiment station,
Prosser, where the laboratory is
located. _ 7
Dean Nichols pointed out that
the diagnosis and control of in
fectious disease of animals is
important also to the general
public and that the laboratory
works with public health units
to further common aims. Efforts
are made to restrict the move
ment of animals having diseas
es transmissible to man, and one
of the goals is to secure 100 per
cent vaccinations of horses and
mules for sleeping sickness.
Diagnosis at the laboratory
began about May, 1948. During
the first year approximately
2,000 subjects were submitted
from farms and ranges. But the
1y half of the other known races
of smut. The rapid spread of
dwarf smut during the past two
seasons has been of particular
concern to growers and research
ers. Only control for this type
of smut is to plant resistant va
rieties. _ A _
Brevor is also highly smut re
sistant. It has moderate to high
resistance to all of the known
races of smut. -_ _
Like Elgin, both new wheats
have short straw and outyield
present varieties by 10 to 15 per
cent. Elmar is a white club wheat
and Brevor is a common white.
Both wheats are adapted to pro
duction in the winter wheat
areas of Washington, and other
Pacific Northwest states. :2-
cause of their short straw, they
are resistant to lodging. Both be
ing winter-hardy, stand up well
under severe winter weather
Dr. Buchanan said Northwest
wheat growers will not be able
to obtain planting seed of the
two. new varieties until 1950.
work involves much more than
diagnosis and practical advice.
During half of the current
year 141 consultations were held
with practicing, teaching and re
search veterinarians, 23 with
county extension agents on lo
cal disease problems, and Dr.
Trippeer attended numerous
meetings related to animal hus
bandry and disease control.
During that period the labora
tory received requests concern
ing 1,240 cases in cattle. includ
ing 755 samples from problem
herds, 24 cases in swine. 36 in
horses, 114 in sheep, 1,208 in
turkeys and 136 in chickens, and
also rabbits.
