HI9H SCHOOL NIGHT

I HAYAuAN '
These debaters furnish the color to the University of Hawaii debate team which is touring the
Pacific coast for the first time, and which will meet the Willamette university team here Monday.
From left to right they are, Dai Ho Chun, the Chinese member) Shigee Yoehida, the Japanese; and
Donald Layman, a Canadian.
In the fire plants, all milk
passed under strict supervision
and results were recorded by au
tomatic devices. Pasteurization
process requires SO minutes of
heating at 132 degrees Fahren
heit. Average bacterial count of all
pasteurized milk in 1929 was
500. a decided improvement ov
er the cdunt of 9,500 recorded for
the nine months in 1928 in which
check was made on the produc
tion. For raw-milk, the 1929 av
erage bacterial count was 16.300,
,300 counts less than the 1928
During 1929 five dairymen sold
their businesses but four new
ones entered the field, leaving at
present 11 distributors obtaining
supplies from. 14 distributing
plants, BMnkhorn's books show.
n addition to the higher averages
for last year, in 1929 all milk
handlers in distributing plants
were given health examinations to
make sure that all were free of
contagious disease and examina
tions wre started of the nearly
400 milk handlers on the produc
ing plants which sell milk In Sa
lem. These latter examinations
are being given each week now.
Although greatly pleased with
the definite Improvement over
the previous year, Bllnkhom says
the big thing which developed In
his Inspections in 1929 was the
cooperation exhibited both by dis
tributor and producer. Both
these agencies are coming to real
ize that It Is to their own Inter
ests as well as to those of the
public for them to cooperate in
making possible higher standards
of milk 418 well as greater con
venience in handling.
Members of the so-called Inter
im committee created by the 1929
legislature ho conduct an Investi
gation of state printed textbooks
for the schools, will hold their
next meeting In Salem early in
March. This was announced here
Saturday by Arthur Brock, fore
man of the state printing depart
ment and a member of the inter
Brock said that samples of
state printed textbooks had been
received from many parts of the
United States. He declared that In
moat' cases these textbooks ap
parently had proved satisfactory.
and that the cost of production
and delivery to the consumer had
been reduced materially. It was
made plain by Brock that the in
terim committee is not consider
ing free textbooks as has been re
ported in the press.
At the next meeting of the in
terim committee figures will be
aralahle showing the cost of state
printed textbooks, royalty de
manded fbr the texts, and the In
vestment 'that would be required
in Oregon to make possible the
printing of the books.
The meet serious problem now
facing the Interim committee is
that of obtaining suitable texts at
reasonable figure. Brock said
this obstacle probably would be
overcome before the final report

IE HIGHLY POPULAR
Washington cities are far ahead
of the northern Oregon ones in
progressireness, declared Ray L.
Fasching, - local real estate man
and representative in this terri
tory for the Apple Vendor sales
company of Seattle, upon return
Saturday from a four day busi
ness trip to Tacoma and Seattle.
Fasching made It a point to be
come acquainted with business
conditions along the route, and
a result he sees Washington
towns and cities as much more
progressive and getting ahead
through a real cooperation among
the business men. He points to
the Neon signs and tubings which
are huge attractions not only In
Seattle and Tacoma but in small
er cities, as being made up in feet
where those in Portland and Sa
lem are made in Inches, and finds
in this a likely illustration of the
differences that dominate the
Business men In the north
claim money has been a little
scarce there and hard to get, but
conditions are not so depressed
as some have tried to make them
selves believe. They are taking
hold and adopting the slogan.
Business is Good' ", Fasching
In connection with his confer
ence with the director of the Ap
ple Vendor sales company while
in Seattle, Fasching sees nothing
but a bright future for this new
Idea in marketing apples and
says that Pacific coast people
who are becoming . acquainted
with the idea are responding to
the idea whole heartedly. In
Washington, Fasching met many
growers as well as buyers of ap
ples, and found them too to be
in accord with the machine meth
od of marketing apples in units in
Profits being derived already
from this three-year old enter
prise are almost unbelievable, the
local man says, with December
reports running 64 per cent in
Los Angeles. "Officials of the
company estimate that 25 leading
cities in the United States will ab
sorb 25,000 of the large vending
machines and facilities have been
provided In the factory at Seattle

CUT 2 CENTS
General Reduction in Rates
Made by Dairies Oper
ating in Salem
What might have been a "milk
war" in Salem subsided in a quiet
cut of two cents per quart in. the
retail price of milk here yester
day when Capital dairies took the
lead and others followed.
The local cut is in line with the
general trend of the dairy market
which "has been on the toboggan
for some time. Local butter fat
prices were cut to 36 cents Satur
day and the price of whole milk
has been steadily on the down
grad for sometime.
The slump in butter fat prices
has trown a surplus of whole milk
on the market, since dairy men
can not produce butter fat at the
present price and have tried to
sell milk instead. This has caused
an over production of milk, with
the resulting price drop.
Improved weather conditions
have increased the milk produc
tion, which slumped slightly dur
ing the cold wave.
No further cut in the retail
price is expected soon, although
increased production In the spring
may bring a further cut.
Although Salem residents are
glad that snow days are apparent
ly over, other parts of the coun
ty are still looking out each day
upon a white ground. Because It
is so, a Lincoln resident writes to
The Statesman of feeding birds
there, hoping that others will see
that birds in their neighborhood
are taken care of so long as need
Says the correspondent:
"A very popular feeding place
for the birds since the snow came
is in the orchard on the Willam
ette river on C. C. Grimm's place
at Lincoln, where flocks of birds
of many varieties congregate each
day to partake of the banquet
spread by Mr. Grimm for them.
"Quail, pheasants and several
smaller kinds feast on the apples
and grain put out. Also in the
yard at Lincoln store which is
owned by Mr. and Mrs. Grimm,
large flocks are attracted by the
scattering of breakfast oats, corn
and sliced apples oa tables to
which come snow birds, yellow
hammer, robins, brown birds and
a red variety.
"The birds come at daybreak
staying until dusk. Invitations to
the feast Eeem to have been
broadcast to all the hungry birds.
