farmers' organizations, marked an epoch
in agricultural cooperation, declared C
M. Gustafson, chairman "of the Farmers'
Grain Marketing Committee -of Seven

slight that after all, when It come to a
consideration of the I common funda
mental . problems, ' the. committee was
able to agree unanimously on every
point in the development of the plan.
GIYE'AJf, TAKK JPOLICT
"There 'Are indications on every, hand
that this spirit of true cooperation
which was developed In the committee
of seventeen is being applauded by all
farmers organizations - and that the
same 'broad-minded policy- of give and
take will govern the larger body of
farmers' organisations which will meet
in the ratification conference in Chi
cago April 6. . If the farmers' repre
sentatives at that conference can keep
the, same broad vision . of true coopera
tion before them and present a united
front . on a marketing- plan and ' a - na
tional .marketing organisation of - their
otvnrtfrT f armers' of America itfirr have
made the most important step forward

COWS ARE SIGNED
UP FOR TESTING
Montesano, March 26. More than
300 of the 600 cows necessary for
a cow testing association were signed
up 'at a meeting here under the su
pervision of F. W. Kehrli field spe
cialist for the state college at Pull
man. '-.!:. " is
A proposition made by" a group of
Thurston county dairymen for a Joint
association was, rejected at the meeting
and plans laid for "completing a Grays
Harbor county organization.' - - -
Plans call for a paid tester who will
spend his entire time visiting the differ
ent herdaln the association. Every cow
will be tested at least one day each
month and an accurate record kept of
her milk yield and the butter fat content.
At the end of the year the dairymen will
be able to tell which cows are profitable
and which are merely boarding with him.
The first cow testing work. was done in
Denmark, according to Kehrll and was
the beginning of the farm work coopera
tion that has made that little country
famous. , ." : ' ; . f s--

GRESKAM COW HAS
BIG MILK RECORD
": Multftomah county registered Hol
steina are still adding to their lau
rels. Recently Stanhope Belle Jo
hanna, owned by H. G. Mullenhoff
of Gresham, surpassed . the ; record
made by Bessie Veeman Aggie de
Kol, owned by J. Luscher of Fair
view.'; I.' 'I'.""-: '
. Stanhope Belle has just finished still
another record which surpasses her pre
vious record as far as butterfat is con
cerned, - college officials- who .'have just
checked this record announce. The rec
ord as It now stands is '841 pounds of
milk - and : 26.78 pounds .of butterfat in
seven days.- This is believed to be a
Pacific coast record and is close to the
national record for milk production. Her
highest production for one day was
138.5 pounds of milk. ,
. Bessie Veeman ' produced during her
week's test 703.1 pounds of milk and
23.46 pounds of butterfat. A notable
fact is that both of these cows are be
ing fed during their tests with a ration,
the concentrate portion of which con
sists of 30 pounds of "Milk Maker," a
product-developed by S. E. Hodg'en of a
local feed company. One of 4be big ad
vantages of this concentrate seems to
be- that ,the cows are able to eat and
utilise an enormous quantity "of the feed.
: The Mullenhoff cow was also fed on
corn silage, kale,' mangles, beet pulp
end ' molasses with clover hay. . The
Luscher cow -received almost the same
ration except that she was fed alfalfa
as a hay ration. Mullenhoff expects to
carry ; Stanhope 1. Belle on through a
year's work and will try to make her
the national champion for a year's work.
Both of these Holsteins show wonderful
confirmation , and constitutionality.
Proved Success, in
Roseburg, Or., March 26. A most as
tonishing demonstration of the -value of
spray " in the control of . anthracnose,
one of the most serious diseases of apple
trees, is to be found in Garden valley,
near "this city, according to Professor
H. ,- P. . Bares, who arrived here this
week from the Oregon Agricultural col
lege to inspect some of the orchards of
Douglas county". Last year Uie anthrac
nose was very- bad over the entire state
and County Fruit Inspector . Armstrong
spent a. great deal of time in giving
growers information and aiding them
in fighting the disease. Under, his di
rection, spray 'Was put on In many
places as soon as the apples had been
removed, - and the great value of the
spray is shown this . year, when ' very
few evidences of anthracnose can be
found, -'In - orchards where spray" was
not used last August according to rec
ommendations of the ' inspector, many
trees . are so badly infected that their
removal will be forced. h; ',;

FARM BUREAU IN
' Burns, March 25. Little progress
is being made by the Farm Bureau
movement , in Harney.-county, due
principally to the lack of a man to
push the movement forward. De
pending' mainly upon one product to
make up their Income, the benefits
to be derived from the farm bureaus
is, pot as yet fully, realized ;by the
Harney, county farmers.
Livestock is the chief product and It
is marketed by selling to buyers who
travel through the country, ' represent
ing large concerns, and cooperative buy
ing and selling is little practiced. ,
Catilow valley has a. fully established
and operating farm bureau, which is the
only, one operating-in the county.: Four
others were . irt . the process - of ' being
formed when the discontinuance of the
office of county agent left the movement
without the aid of anyone who could
afford to give time to the work. ;

BY FARM BUREAU
.La Grande March 26. -The Union
county farm bureau is taking on new
life under - the leadership of Harry
G. Avery? county agent, who took
office recently. Sulphur,; nitrate of
soda for orchards, and. distillate will
be ordered in carlots within V week
for. the members. ;';"-y 'V
The Island City-, Pig club was reor
ganized this week with-eight members,
three of whom have been in the club two
years. Albert Boskett,' one of the older
members, has several valuable sows,, two
of which he purchased recently at a Poland-China
sale in Nampa, Idaho. - A
corn growing club will be organized by
these boys later for the purpose of' growl
ing feed for their stock. ' -
Avery will continue the work St urg
ing the farmers tp grow Grimm or Bal
tic alfalfa. Among the extensive grow
ers of these varieties in the Grand Ronde
valley is F. K. Reynolds. - In discussing
his experiences in growing alfalfa he
called attention to a 180-acre tract of
common alfalfa being killed out by heat
ing several years ago. Adjacent tracts
of Grimm alfalfa were undamaged. His
experience also shows that on the same
ground, all other conditions being sim
ilar, including a well-prepared seed-bed,
an average of one ton an : acre better
yield is secured, the return in cash being
far greater than the extra price paid for
the seed. i-'i ; . ;-
In Dairy' Herd as
Result of Test Made
La Grande, March 26. A report was
issued this week by Dr. G. W., Trubey,
who applied the tuberculin test to six
commercial ' dairy - herds and 14 family
cows recently. ; The family cows were all
free of tuberculosis, but the dairy herds
contained as high as 74 per cent tuber
cular animals. The herd which had this
high percentage of diseased tows had 27
animals," only seven of which-; were
healthy. All of the milk from these
cows was sold to a creamery, hotels and
restaurants." - : .1 ;.' ,
Two or the six herds were found to be
free of all tubercular cows. The six
herds contained 134 animals and 109 were
found healthy, 25 being tubercular. These
latter have been slaughtered under fed
eral inspection. .' " : -1
