" I ’m Siansky.”

C O R V A LLIS - A new pest, the
face fly, has Invaded Oregon and
bids to become a serious p ro ­
blem In the state, according to
D r . R. L . Gouldlng, associate
of entomology at
Oregon State U n iversity.
In Oregon, the face fly was
firs t noted and collected in late
June in Wallows County, Gould-
ing said. M ain areas of infest­
now are east of the
Cascades in Wallows and Union
counties near E n terp rise, Elgin
Im b le r, and LaGrange.
An Oregon State Departm ent
of agricultu re survey entomol­
ogist has also found the face
fly In Richland In the Powder
R iver area and at Durkee and
Baker in the Burnt R iver area.
Goulding said that the most
recent rep o rt Indicates the firs t
evidence of the face fly west
of the Cascades has now been
noted in P o rt Angeles, Wash.
The face flv is about the size
of the house fly and gets the
name from Its habit of clu s te r­
ing on the faces of cattle, horses
and open-faced sheep. It feeds
on eye secretions, open wounds,
and saliva deposits.
Face flie s are bothersome
to humans only because they
hibernate In homes and barns
during fa ll and w inter and be­
come active during w arn sunny
days, Gouldlng noted.
Anim als bothered by the .’ace
fly seek shade, thus In te rru p t­
ing norm al behavior and feed­
ing habits. T his causes poor
pasutre u tiliza tio n and results
in loss of production. There is
also the p o ssib ility that the
spead pinkeye
to cattle,
pointed out.
The OSU entomologist said
that presently there is no com­
pletely effective and p ractical
methods o f control. Some r e lie f
may be obtained by the careful
use of Insecticide baits, sprays,
and self-tre a tm e n t devices such
as back and face rubbers.
Goulding explained that the
face fly infestation now Invading
Oregon Is a European im p o rt,
from the northwest
European m a ritim e areas to
Canada in the e a rly 1940’ s.
It showed up In New Y o rk state
in the 1950’ s and gradually
worked westward. The face fly
was firs t noted In western Idaho
and eastern Washington in late
Although there seems to be
some c lim a tic lim itatio n s to the
face fly , Oregon’ s conditions
are most favorable, Goulding
said. The fly appears to be
following the Grande Rhonde
R iver System , moving slow ly
from herd to herd and ranch
to ranch.
The fem ale fly Is the most
troublesom e,
scientists say,
and p refers to bother the liv e s ­
tock In bright sunshine. Eggs
are laid only In fresh cattle
droppings and em erge as adult
flies from 10 to 21 days la te r.
Gouldlng forecasts a gradual
Increase In the face fly through­
out the state each yea r. He
expects it to show up In other
r iv e r drainage systems since It
may be following the lush I r r i ­
gation areas of the

Medical ID —
Card Or Band
A Lifesaver
All over the world a simple
six-sided figure has become (he
symbol of identification of personal
medical problems.
The symbol was adopted by
the American Medical Association
some four years ago and three years
ago was adopted
by th e W o rld
M edical Associa-
tion as the univer-
sal indication that
the individual dis­
playing the sign has personal
health problems that might re­
quire emergency attention.
Who should carry identifica­
tion? Everyone, says the AMA. A
card, such as the AMA emergency
medical identification card, is use­
ful to identify an ill or injured per­
son, to help locate family, friends
and personal physician, and to give
inform ation that w ill im prove
emergency care. People with spe­
cial health problems should also
wear a durable metal or plastic
alerting signal device on their
wrist, ankle or neck, indicating
their need for special medical care.
The emergency medical iden­
tification card should note special
problems that need immediate at­
tention in an emergency or that
could cause an emergency. For ex­
ample, diabetics must be identified
so that a person in diabetic coma
will get proper treatment prompt­
ly and needed doses of insulin will
not be overlooked during treat­
ment for injury. The need for cer­
tain medicines must be known.
Heart patients taking drugs to pre­
vent blood clots may bleed pro­
fusely if injured unless they receive
special care. Other people are sen­
sitive to certain drugs and must
never take them.
E pileptics could be saved
much trouble and unnecessary hos­
pitalization if they carried • card
indicating that they may have seiz­
ures. Neck breathers (those who
breathe through a tube surgically
inserted below their “Adam's ap­
ple’*) must be recognizable to pro­
tect them from smothering.

fication kit may be obtained by
addressing Box C, Emergency
