OltEGOX CREAMERY HEADS
PLAN NEW CREAM GRADES
BOARDMAN, OREGON, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1923.
PERRY MONUMENT, TOKYO
THE HOME TOWN PAPER
At Call of State Dairy and Food
Commissioner Factory .Men ('ou
ter on Better Buter
At the call of C. L. Hawley, state
dairy and food commissioner, a num
ber of Oregon creamery men recently
met in Portland and adopted a def
inite grade for cream and have now
gone out to get the cooperation of
every creamery in the state.
Oregon creameries are making
more but I or than is used i i ' state,
disposing of the surplus in out of
state markets. The best of these
are San Francisco and Los Angeles,
which demand a high grade product.
A discount of six cents a pound is
charged against butter falling from
93 point to 89 point. A single can
of bad cream is enough to reduce
a whole churning these four points
and pull the price down from 4 6
cents a pound to 39. This loss on a
ton lot is $120 cash. Worse yet,
the drop in quality means disaster to
the Oregon export butter market. j
"Oregon creameries are now up
against the proposition o? putting
qualiy into their butter or going out
of business," says V. D. Chappel, sec
retary of the Oregon Buttermakers'
association and head of dairy pro
duction at the state college.
The managers will be informed of
the methods of grading adopted at
the Portland meeting in time to put
them into effect by October 1 They
are urged to start now by churning
their good cream separately. Also
to send lists of their patrons to the
federal dairy division at Washington
for dairy bulletins, and tell the col
lege dairy department their needs.
The western dairy division at Salt
Lake will go so far as to send an
expert to work with the dairyman
for two weeks on producing and
handling high quality cream.

The newspaper starts in
When you are born;
Relates about your excellence
And tells about your sweetness.
It follows you to school,
And prints the honor roll
If your name is found there.
It tells of your graduation
And speaks of the excellence
Of your magnificent essay;
It tells of your progress
During your college career
And then dilates much about
The choice of your profession.
Then it gives a nice notice
About your marriage
And praises the blushing bride
Till her kinfolk don't know her.
Then, in the course of events,
It tells about the bouncing baby
That happens in the family
Thereby beginning its life work
All over and over again.
The newspaper does all this
And does also much more.
It tells of the progress
Made from time to time
And boosts when others knock
Simply because it craves
The good things about life,
It gives free publicity
Worth thousands of dollars
To its own home town
And asks no favors from friends.
There are scads of things
That all good newspapers do
For which they cannot be paid.
That Is why every citizen
Should do his darndest
To support the newspaper
In every possible way.
The old home town paper
Is a community asset
That Is always undervalued
In the way of dollars and cents.
BordMMH Controls Apple Anthraciiose
Apple tree anthracnose has been
brought under control in a' large
number of orchards in western Ore
gon and the Hood Kiver section by
spraying in July or August with Bor
deaux mixture, says the plant path
ologist at the O.A.C. Experiment
station. Unprotected orchards in
these districts are likely to experi
ence very serious infections this fall
as soon as the rainy weather begins,
If Bordeaux mixture Is not applied
at once. For the owner of an an
thracnose Infested orchard to delay
his spray until after the fruit is
picked has proved to be a mistake.
This is too late to avoid the early
fall infections from which the most
Berious damage results.
A number of Boardman young peo
ple are leaving for college this fall.
Ethel Broyles goes to Pullman, where
she will take pharmacy; Edna plans
to return the second semester to
continue her work; Dorothy Board
man goes to Willamette university
at Salem, where she will take advan
tage of the scholarship she earned;
Doris Healey will attend normal at
Monmouth; Uram Messenger and
Paul Hatch will continue at O.A.C.,
being in their Junior year. Perhaps
there are others of whom we have
not heard. .
Albert Macomber returned home
Monday night on No. 23 from a trip
to Kansas, having gone with the Staf
ford family several weeks ago. He
left them at Greely, Colo., and re
turned on the train In order to be
here to drive the school bus. He re
ports a pleasant trip and good roads
most of the way east.
Wooden props for holding up ov
erloaded fruit tree branches are less
reliable than masts and wiring as
they may get out of position or fall.
If limbs are loaded to the breaking
point some sort of support is es
sential. Forked saplings are cheap
est but call for great care to pre
vent wounding the branches.
EMPEROR OF JAPAN
Rotation of crops costs little In
diversified districts and is usually
profitable on the soils. It permits
Increase of humus and nitrogen by
tinning under clover and other crop
ivsiduoss. On the experiment sta
tion farm the average net profit of
rotation for seven years was $8.82.
Winter protection for the bet "l
onles will mean more honey next
spring. Painting the hives will pre
vent cracks that otherwise are likely
to form in the hard weather and
cause the bees to work at filling
them with wax next summer when
they would otherwise be making
Peach Blight Threatens Havoc
Peach blight Is likely to play hav
oc In Oregon peach orchards this
fall and winter where growers do
not spray their trees immediately af
ter picking with Bordeaux mixture
6-B-5 0 as a preventive of twig and
bud infections, sure to begin with
the first fall rains, reports the plant
pathologist! at the Oregon experi
ment station. Blight Is responsi
ble for more damage to Oregon
peach orchards than any other dis
ease, and because of conditions pre
vailing this season a more serious
attack may be expected this fall than
i usual Directions for the proper
preparation of Bordeaux mixture
can be had on request from the ag-
i lioultnral college.

Almost any product grown in suf
ficient quantity to make a volume
ef business can be marketed suc
cessfully under a selling agency if
the organization is on strictly busi
ness and economical lines. As local
associations form and gain strength
they naturally federate and out of
them come state-wide organizations.
However, there can be too many and
too small associations to succeed.
One hundred cars of potatoes can be
handled by an association almost as
cheaply as one. There must be suf
ficient volume In sight to make a
local association self-sustaining.
Once more the Importance rf a
solid, hard-headed, business org h
liatlon should be impressed on ,
leaders of any proposed co-Operative
selling agency, be It great o- mall,
It must be started right a-id run
right or it will fall. A' lllty Bl"ta
must count In working QUI a plan.
Men who have made successes must
be on the hoards or directors and
they must give as "inch time and en
ergy to the work I tln v did to their
private business, Which they made a
QOMM of. They niiisj i ? cf to
work without much or any compen
sation unttl the organization la on
Its feet and the work then taken ov
er in large part by the officials.
And the officials must be chosen
by the same rule that other Indus
tries apply. They must know their
jobs and be capable of building up
Jobs and bo capable of building
a business. They must know how
and when to sell products, never
having too much of a commodity in
one locality and too little In anot'- ,
They must know marketing, distri
bution, delivery, grading, financing.
They must be trained specialists and
they must be -well paid
And of equal importance to the
permanent success of any co-opera
tlve organization Is that of getting
the products to the buying public at
price that will assure normnl con
sumption. r the puhlc wll !not
buy, market and price control are
of little value. The beaten path be
tween the farm and the home must
be shortened; the system of market
ing revised, middle profits and ex
penses eliminated as far as possible
and the products transported from
the farm to the retailer by the short
est and chenpest course. The selling
agency must be its own middlemen
as far as possible and practicable.
The middle profits must be materi
ally cut down or the efforts to get
higher prices for growers and lower
prices for the homes will fail.
I'amphlets regarding the new po
tato grading and Inspection law,
which will go into effect September
IT., are ready for distribution and
will be mailed to any person re
questing them, Address .State Mar
ket Agent. Court House, Fort
land. These pamphlets give the
four grades In full and the rules and
regulations of the Market Agent.
Compulsory grading and laapac
lion of Oregon's potatoes will put
the slate on a basis with Wahingfon
anil Idaho and will be of great advan-
agl i" marketing. The fancv grade
will undoubtedly lie developed , as
Oregon produces a large quantity or
potatoes that can make this grade
Ton land dealers state that alre.iily
there has been a marked Improve
ment In the grading of potatoes re
reived In the city, although the law
has not gone Into effect. One of the
large dealers stated that when grow
ers realize that I hey can get a better
price for their stock with the culls
left on the farm for feeding than they
could for the whole crop, they will
welcome the grading law and abide
by Its provisions.
