concerning the Association work
were sent out this week by H.
B. Carroll, jr., county agent:

The directors are pleaded to
state that they have secured Mr.
Guy Anderson, of La Center,
Washington, to act as tester. Mr.
Anderson at the present time Is
employed by the Oregon Agricul
tural College and is doing official
testing in Oregon. He is a grad
uate of the State College of
Washington and specialized in
dairy work. He is thoroughly
qualified and will be of great as
sistance to the dairymen in work
ing out their feeding rations.
The Directors expect to get the
testing started about January 2
and wish to complete the 1500
that they started out to get. The
rate is still $1.25 per cow for the
year. Anyone wishing to join
may do so by sending their name,
address and number of cows to
Mr. J. A. Weide, Secretary-Treas

State College of Washington is
squarely behind this Testing As
sociation and will work hand in
