Green, Dequty State Veterinarian, and County Agent Morse comqleted testing for tu berculosis on forty-three herds of dairy cattle this week. Many of these were family cows bo that a total of only 174 animals were tested. No re actors were found among these cows. This makes a total of 1015 cows tested this year with onlytwore-acteis, or less than 1-5 of one percent of the cattle tested reacting. This shows Morrow County is excep tionally free from tuberculosis in its dairy cattle, although if the entire conty were tested the percentage would .probably run higher, inasmuch as many of the herds tested this year were test ed two years ago and something like 17 re actors killtd. A com parison of the re-action in pthet sections shows that 617.610 cows tested in the United States dur ing March. 19,841 or more than an average of .three per cent re acted. In several states the average runs over ten per cent of re-actors, the State of Oregon as a whole averages a rate of one per cent re actors. There are approximately 217.- 745,196,000 board feet ot saw timber on the National Forests of Oregon and Washington, ac cording to estimates of the U. S. Forest Service. The principal species in this stand are Douglas fir, western yellow pine, western red cedar, and western Hemlock. Forest .officers point out that national forest timber is handled as a crop, and provisions made for growing a new crop when the mature timber is harvested. Pre vention of man-caused forest fires is the most serious problem in forest growing, it is said. The otal consumption of wood pulyin the United States has increased from 2,200 eords in 1869, to 5,548,842 cords in 1922, according to , forest service statistics.
