For Removal Of

mediately, Miss Lucy Lane,
O. S. C. extension clothing and
textiles specialist, implores. Dry
cherry stains are much more dif-
licult to remove man iresn ones.
First action on either white or
colored cotton, wool or silk is to
sponge the fresh stain with cool
water, men worn glycerine or a
soapless shampoo into the stain.
After letting the garment stand
for several hours, apply a few
drops of vinegar. Let it stand for
a minute or two oeiore rinsing
thoroughly in water.
If some of the stain still lingers,
Miss Lane suggests sponging it
with 20 V peroxide. Ana, sne
adds, this is not the medical va
riety. As an aaaea precaution,
before using the peroxide which
has a bleaching action, try It on
an inconspicuous Inside garment
seam to make sure the color is
fast, the clothing specialist adds.
Follow the peroxide with a
thorough cold water rinse.

all types of loans available

the state director emphasizes. Is
well suited to meet needs of young

Only farmers who are unable to
secure credit at reasonable rates
from other sources are eligible to
secure supervised credit from the
Farmers Home Administration, It
is pointed out. ,
Duffy slates that the Insured
mortgage program put into effect
in 1947 has made it possible for
banks, Insurance companies and
individuals to cooperate with the
government in a program of de
veloping and Improving local com
munities. Loans made through the
Insured mortgage plan are serv
iced by FHA fieldmen and repay
ments to the lender guaranteed
by the government.
Ninety thousand dollars was
loaned to Oregon farmers whose
property was damaged or destroy
ed by the 1948 Columbia River
flood, Duffy concludes.

Ruinous Worm Feasting
On Bumper Cherry Crop
THE DALLES, June 27. OB
An Oregon State College experi
ment station entomologist, Sid
Jones, was called here to find out
what kind of worm is ruining the
bumper cherry crop.
Growers reported a serious
larva infestation in some orch
ards It was discovered late; the
30,000-ton record crop is already
70 per cent harvested.
One grower was notified that
27 tons of fruit he had sent a proc
essor would all be useless. It was
partly infested; and processors
said the larva it so hard to de
tect that sorting out bad from
good cherries would be prohibi
tive In cost.
The worm, which appears seri
ous in some orchards but non
existent in others, may possibly
be the mlneola moth larva. Grow
ers, however, were not sure.

29 Attend Grass, Forage
Meet At Glendale Grange
Twenty-nine local farmers and
livestock men were present at
the grass and forage meeting held
at the Azalea Grange Hall June 8.
County Agent J. Roland Parker
was present and took the men on
an inspection of the grass nurs
ery in the field next to the Grange
Hall and gave short talks on each
of the grasses and legumes.
Afterward, a discussion of the
conservation program took place

state office giving a few pointers.
The farmers were told they can
get lime loaded on their trucks
at the plant on Roberts Mountain
Road for $4 per ton.
The grass nursery was started
last fall by Parker In cooperation
with the Grange and consists of
13 varieties of grasses and le

four kinds of commercial fertili

seed production, and in the case
of the leaf and root crops, when
seed bearing begins, quality is so
impaired that the harvest ends.
Conspicuous examples of this

Root Crops Also at Best
Root crops also like the fall
weather, but to enjoy the highest
quality summer sowings should
be made so that new crops of
beets, carrots and turnips will
reach maturity In the early fall.
This Is an excellent time to have
the canning and freezing crops
available. While old plantings of
both beets and carrots will retain
fair table quality until freezing
weather comes, they should never
be used for freezing or canning.
and younger plants will also be
more welcome on the fall menu.
Eor green onions. In the fall,
onion sets will rarely be available,
since last year's crop cannot be
kept dormant in hot weather, and
the new crop is not sufficiently
cured to start growing again wlthr
out a winter's rest. The only way
to Insure fall green onions is to
sow onion used six to eight weeks
before the crop is edsired.
Cool Days Aid
Slow growing vegetables, which
need only to be sown once in or

enjoy the cool days and more
plentiful rainfall of autumn as
much as the early types.
Swiss chard should be kept
young by cutting off all leaves
more than 10 inches long, and en
couraging new growth, which will
be more tender. New Zealand
spinach can be harvested until
freezing weather. Parsnips reach
top quality after the first hard
frosts, though many consider
them excellent when half grown,
and use them all summer. Pep
pers and egg plant produce abun
dantly In the fall,' and the late
maturing tomatoes and sweet
corn combine top quality with the
heaviest yield of the season.
Truly, the autumn harvest Is
the finest of the year!
