Sta tint* Saving Campaign With
Families A ked To Pledge
That the consumption of suenr
in this country must be reduced,
in order that the nation's sup­
ply will not be exhausted, is
mot e than evident, with a nation­
al campaign now underway, ask­
ing families to pledge themselves
to use stipulated amounts per
day and the substitution of other
sweets in place of sugar.
Miss Lorene Parker. Clacka­
mas County’s Home Demonstra­
tion Agent, through the schools
and teachers is asking the follow-
* ing questions, which it would be
wise for every housew'ii’e to an­
swer and send a report to Miss
Schrepel, teacher of Domestic
Science in the Estacada Schools.
How much sugar is served on jour
table in a week?
What is the average amount which
each person uses in tea and coffee?
Does your family use sugar on ce­
Do you add sugar to the baby’s ce­
real and cup of milk?
What kind of dessert do you serve
most frequently?
Will . ach member of the family who
uses more than six tablespoonsful of
sugar a day—including the amount used
in caxes, puddings, preserved fruits,
etc., agree to reduce the amount to
four tablespoonsful?
Will you for one month substitute
dishes which contain little sugar in
place of cakes, puddings, etc? For in­
stance use molasses and syrups in
sweetening; use salads freely, and use
the canned fruits which you put up last
summer in place of such dishes as cakes
and puddings.
Will you agree to use fresh fruits,
raisins, dates, figs, nuts, popcorn, and
similar things for your holiday gather­
ings and cut down on candies and dish­
es which call for sugar?
If there are five persons in your
, family will you agree to limit the sugar
u ;ed in all cooking and served on your
table in any form, infcluding candy, to
one pound (two cups) a day for the
remainder of the year? This allowance
will go approximately three ounces a
day per person. For each member of
the family overfive and six tablespoons
additional, for less than five reduce the
amount six tablespoonsful for each
Will you keep a record of the amount
of sugar saved in this way?
The campaign makes a few
suggestions as to substitutes for
sugar, such as - cooking dried
fruits without suirar; cooking
cereals w’ith date# and raisins
and serving without^igar; sweet­
ening fruits with honey and ma­
ple and corn syrups; using con­
centrated fruit juices Ymd fruit
butters as sweeteners; making
puddings, cakes, etc., with corn
syrup, molasses or honey, instead
of sugar.

At the Estacada School Feb. 8th
at 2:30 P. M., Theo. M. Scheffer,
assistant biologist of the U. S.
Department of Agriculture will
give a demonstration in the trap­
ping of moles and the preparation
of the hides for the market.
Mr. Scheffer is a recognized
authority on the subject of ro­
dents and has had two years ex­
perience in the control of the
mole nuisance in Oregon.
Until recently the mole was
captured merely to exterminate
a destructive pest, with no
thought of saving the beautiful
and valuable pelt.
The demonstration will include
the proper traps for catching
the moles, ho.v to skin and pre­
pare the pelts for the trade and
the proper tools to work with.
On the same day Mr. Scheffer
will give a similar demonstration
at Eagle Creek at 10:30 in the
Farmers Bulletin No. 8 3 2 -
“ Trapping Moles and Utilizing
Their Skins” - compiled by Mr.
Scheffer may be had by writing
to County Agricultural Agent R.

Frank Ewing of Viola, with a
companion, made a two day trip
last week up the Clackamas Riv­
er, in the interests of the railway
work, going to Three Links on
Saturday and returning Sunday.
Mr. Ewung reports that the
main Clackamas River trail is in
bad condition in many places,
with the bridge over the North
Fork washed away by the heavy
floods of last month. The trail
near South Fork Bluffs, Moore
Creek and Roaring River washed
out in places and the water-gauge
house and cable at the Upper
Dam entirely gone, with the
foundations of the suspension
bridge at that point, badly dam­

On Friday of this week, the
rural free delivery route from the
Barton post office will be discon­
tinued, the patrons being served
by a new route, number 4 from
the Bering post office.
We are advised by the Rarton
office that temporarily all mail
may be directed as formerly, as
the carrier from Boring will stop
there and make collections.

years has been the popular car­

To date, nothing but complaints
have been heard from the pa­
trons, relative, to this sudden
postal change and it is still hoped

in a few weeks ago will result in
some more satisfactory service
than the new route promises.

According to a communication
received last week by the State
Highway Commission at Salem
from Chester L. Chambers of
the Eagle Creek Grange, that
organization intends to attack
the further sale of road bonds,
through an initiative vote at the
election this Fall and to annul
the vote of last Spring, by which
the bonds were provided.
The action of the Grange is
based upon wasteful methods
’ alleged to have been practiced
by the State Highway Commis­
sion, such as the purchase of
$36,000, worth of automobiles.
The Grange has also submitted
a list of questions for the com­
mission to answer, future action
to be somewhat dependent upon
the answers.
Engineer Nunn of the commis­
sion on Wednesday gave forth a
report in answer to the questions
of the Grange, stating that about
$12,000. had been expended for
automobiles, not including trucks
for handling the paving material.
He also explained the difference
in costs between Clackamas Coun­
ty paving and paving as done by
the state, in the difference in the
specifications and grade of ma­
terials used.
