Ewe Paralysis Topic of
Expert; Lambing Starts
(Oregon Wool Grower)
With lambing operations under
way In western Oregon and soon to
start in eastern Oregon the subject
of pregnant ewe paralysis, as dis
cussed by Dr. W. H. Lytle, State
Veterinarian, is of much Interest to
sheep men at this time.
Pregnant Ewe Paralysis
This malady of ewes is a disorder
that is quite common in ewes that
are bred for early lambing. Old
coarse-bred ewes, that is those past
six years of age, are the more sus
ceptible because their teeth are not
good and their food is not so well
chewed, they are stiff and will not
move about so much, they are not
so rugged and they do not drink so
much cold water.
The paralysis is apparently due
to an excessive consumption of pro
tein feeds resulting in the forma
tion of albumin, uric acid, and other
excessive protein food and waste
products that poison the system and
cause a paralysis. The thing that
apparently kills the ewe Is a food
poisoning from food decomposition
taking place in the Intestines. Bul
ky coarse hay feeds, pressure from
carrying twin lambs, lack of exer
cise and the consumption of too lit
tle water all tend toward constipa
tion, food toxemia, and the fatal
In prevention lies the solution of
the problem of this disease control.
Such flock management as will
cause the ewes to eat less coarse
hay feeds and slightly more concen
trates, take more exercise, and
drink more water during cold
weather will tend to prevent the
The disease Is seldom ever seen
in ewes not being lambed in the
winter and is most frequently en
countered immediately following a
winter cold spell indicating that
the lack of exercise and the failure
to drink a sufficient amount of
water is a strong contributing
cause. This Is the time to be on
guard. During the winter's cold
snap, If within three weeks of lamb
ing, drive the ewes at least three
miles per day. This can be done by
causing them to follow a hay wag
on, if they can not be moved out to
the range or they can be driven
about the yard. In the Willamette
Valley section it is well to have the
feed yards or winter pasture a con
siderable distance from the sheds.
Also feed hay at night. This will
cause the ewes to go out and graze
during the day and get exercise.
A tank heater with warm water
if the ewes drink out of a trough"
will greatly add to the consumption
of water during cold weather, the
most essential thing for prevention.
When tank heaters are not used
molasses in the water or on the
feed will cause the ewes to drink
twice the amount of water. The
sugar warms up their systems and
they drink twice the amount This
additional water loosens up the
bowels, flushes out the kidneys and
eliminates the poisonous body
Treatment Is not aa a rule suc
cessful. If attempted, strong pur
gatives, drenching with molasses
and water followed by hypodermic
ally administered purgatives by a
veterinarian may save the mild
cages. Enemas or rectal Injections
of two quarts of warm water with
half an ounce of aloes and eight
ounces of Epsom salts will help get
the ellmlnative organs to function
ing. Valuable or pure bred ewes
may be saved occasionally through
a cesarean operation If undertaken
in time.

monster in the Arizona desert For
her efforts she was awarded 1st

current session will attempt to un
tangle. Thee Is also a possibility of legis
lation Increasing the damages paid
to owners of sheep killed by the un
known dogs, for In the opinion of
Senator Clarence Butt there is need
of change.
"The lump sum adjustment made
under the present law is unfair," he
said when Interviewed concerning
the harm done in Yamhill county
by sheep-killing dogs. "In 1927, the
damages paid averaged less than
$5.00 per head on sheep killed, re
gardless of the value of the sheep."
Senator Butt quoted figures to
show that In Yamhill county alone
there were 325 sheep and goats
killed last year by unknown dogs,
and that It was estimated at least
twice that many more were killed
but unreported. At an average val
ue of $10.00 per head, the loss in
that county amounted to about $10,
000.00 for the year.
Against this loss, however, only
$1410.05 was paid. It is with these
figures in mind that Senator Butt
claims that the present law Is "un
fair." Sale of Land for Taxes
The sale of land, acquired by the
state in lieu of taxes, will be made
easier, If a bill introduced In the
senate by Senator Edward F. Bailey
of Junction City becomes a law.
The bill which provides for the can
cellation of interest and penalties
on delinauent butea nn nrnnoptu on-
quired by the state, Is sponsored by
me worm war veterans state aid
"The passage of the proposed bill
will aid eraatlv In th Kaiiincr r
state owned land," said Frank
Moore, secretary of the World war
veterans' state aid commission. "It
means that the sale price will be
materially lowered, allowing many
the opportunity of buying. The land
will come to us much cheaper, which
in itself it a big item, since many
war veterans buy on a 10 or 12
year contract
"With every sale of state land It
means added tax revenue. Where
land Is sold on contract we retain
the title, but the land Is placed back
on the tax roll. Thus, land which
has not been yielding one cent of
taxes, again produces a revenue for
the county," Mr. Moore said.
Under the provisions of the pro
posed bill, the state land board will
be benefitted In the sale of its land,
Mr. Moore added.
Would Limit Holiday
Holidays have reached their ze
nith, especially school holidays,
said Representative James H. Hai
lett of Hood River county when
questioned concerning a bill he in
troduced into the house during the
current legislative session. His bill
proposes to amend an Oregon law
to do away with Washington's
birthday as a school holiday.
Representative Hazlett pointed
out that under the proposed law it
is necessary for school to be called
for at least an hour and a half be
fore dismissal for the holiday. In
rural districts where it Is necessary
to transport tne pupils to and from
school, the day is not only disrupt
ed but there is a needless expense
to the district
It is the opinion of Representa
tive Hazlett that, holidays have In
creased beyond reason, both for the
schools and the business world.
Banks, he said, are beginning to
protest at the number of legal hol
idays which interfere with their
regular business.
Controversy Expected
Considerable controversy is ex
pected when two bills, concerning
dower and courtesy rights intro
duced by Representative James H.
E. Scott of Umatilla county, come
up for debate later in the session.
These companion bills would extend
the rights of dower and courtesy to
personal property, a departure from
the present law which restricts such
inheritance to real property. De
cided opinions for and against the
measures have been expressed, and
nveiy aeoate is anticipated on them.
Under the provisions of these
bills, in cases where a husband or
wife has died intestate, the dower
and courtesy rights include one-
third of the personal property, in
addition to the already existing
right of life interest in one-half of
the real property. A further pro
vision of the bills is that the widow
or widower may substitute a title
in one-third of the lands for the
life interest in one-half of the lands.
Representative Scott pointed out
that in many cases where there was
no real property, the present law
works a real hardship to the heirs,
and that these bills were designed
primarily to provide justice in such
cases. Several other prominent at
torneys inteviewed upon the sub
ject, felt that it was quite a radical
legal departure and that the terms
"dower" and "curtesy" could not be
interpreted to mean anything but
real property.
Some Tariff Memorials
"I am a good .Democrat," said
Senator Edward F. Bailey of Junc
tion City, "but if I voted 'no' on a
bill to increase the tariff on poultry
poducts I should be afraid that my
constituents who were poultry rais
ers would pelt me with eggs on my
This seems to be the sentiment of
the four lone Democrats in the Sen
ate and House at this session of the
legislature, for with one exception,
they have so far endorsed the five
memorials to Congress increasing
the tariff on agricultural products.
Representative Joseph N. Scott of
Pendleton voted 'no' on the propos
ed increase on bananas, but wheth
er for fondness for bananas or fi
delity to the principles of his party
prompted his vote he did not say.
mere have been five proposed
memorials to Congress on tariff in
crease, these covering timber, cher
ries, Alberts, eggs, and bananas.
The question of a blanket memor
ial covering all agricultural products
was discussed in the House commit
tee on Agriculture. The chairman.
Representative Chindgren of Clack
amas county, felt, however, that
too general a raising of the tariff
would jeopardize some products,
and he urged rather, that a careful
survey of the agricultural products
of the Northwest needing tariff re
vision be made, and those products
included in one memorial.
Senator In New Head Piece
Senator Fred E. Kiddle has a new
hat It is not the kind of hat us
ually seen on men who come from
such counties as Morrow, Umatilla
and Union. Neither Is it the kind
of a hat which loyal Republicans
wore during the recent political
campaign. It is a derby hat; and
when Senator Kiddle appears in it
about the legislative halls he cre
ates a mild sensation.
