Time and Money Saved
by Wise Tool Selection
(College News Sen-ire, O. S. A. C.)
Farm machinery and equipment
generally are subject to wear and
breakage, and constant attention to
repairs is necessary. The extent
to which repair work is done on
the farm depends upon local cir
cumstances. If there is a well equip
ped shop nearby where the work
can be done efficiently without loss
of time the greater part of it may
be done there; but if the shop is at
a distance, is poorly 'equipped, or
the mechanic in charge is incapa
ble of turning out good work, it will
be a saving to perform the work
at home. Besides, there is a large
amount of repair work which can
not be carried to a shop and of
necessity must be done on the farm.
The saving in time and expense
makes a repair outfit an important
part of the farm equipment. The
selection of the tools will depend
upon the scope and kind of work to
be performed. A small, well selec
ted outfit, efficiently used and well
cared for is better than a large
miscellaneous assortment improp
erly used. The following list of
tools includes most of the more de
sirable ones for the farm:
Wood-working tools: axe, hatchet,
crosscut saw, compass saw, ripping
saw, steel square, draw knife, brace
and augur bits, screw driver bit,
screw driver, smoothing plane, wood
chisels, claw hammers, spokeshave,
folding rule, chalk line, spirit level
and wood maul.
Iron-working tools: riveting ham
mer, monkey wrenches, S-wrenches.
aligator wrench, pipe wrench,
punches, cold chisels, flies, forge,
anvil, blacksmith hammer, sledge
hammer, tongs, vise, drill press or
ratchet drill, drill bits, hack saw,
soldering iron, stock and dies.
General tools: tinners' snips, pli
ers, cutting nippers, crowbar, claw
bar, oil cans, wire stretcher, staple
puller, leather punch, rivet set and
These lists of tools and supplies
may include articles not urgently
needed on some farms. In deciding
which to purchase first, selection is
based on the relative usefulness of
the articles. Saving is possible,
says the farm management depart
ment of the Oregon State college, if
tools can be purchased in combinations.

Stream Pollution Subject
for Expert Investigation
(College News Service, O. S. A. C.)
Corvallis, March 20. A compre
hensive program of control of
stream pollution in this state is
proposed in a preliminary report
just issued as a bulletin of the Ore
gon State college engineering exper
iment station. Steps proposed for
bringing about adequate control are
a preliminary survey this coming
summer of the Willamette valley
streams by the engineering experi
ment station in cooperation with
the state board of health and the
fish and game commission.
This preliminary survey, it is said,
would indicate the urgency of con
ditions and probable scope of a
state wide survey carried out under
the direction of the state board of
health and the fish and game com
mission. Only after such a compre
hensive study can adequate legisla
tion for the future be framed, the
Clair V. Langton, new head of
the department of public health
and physical education at the state
college, and Dean H. S. Rogers, di
rector of the engineering experi
ment station, are authors of the re
port, which also includes findings
of geologists, bacteriologists, zoolo
gists and chemists on the college
staff. Dr. Langton has conducted
similar sanitary surveys in large
middle western states.
Sanitary surveys, says the re
port, are conducted to ascertain
hazards to public health and con
servation of aquatic and flsh life.
Gathering of necessary information,
which is a highly technical proced
ure, would eliminate development of
unfavorable conditions and should
result in great economic savings in
The report was compiled at the
request of the executive committee
of the League of Oregon Municipal
ities which is studying the matter
of pollution of Oregon streams.

In a few minutes the young Rab

down at them as though he could
see, although he really couldn't look
at them until it was quite dark.

inherited quality. Quality is bred
into the seeds. A careful up-breeding
of vegetables and flowers has
been going on in the Ferry trial
gardens for 51 years. This means
that the Ferry's Seeds you can plant
today came from parent plants and
grandparent plants thatwere them
selves purebred. Sixty thousand
tests are made annually in the
Ferry gardens for germination.
Thousands of other trials are made
for size, form, color, resistance to
disease. So far as is humanly pos
sible, we determine that every crop
will meet the Ferry standards.
Ferry's Seeds are easy for am

Dclco Light Lightens
Spring Work on Farm
"Arrival of spring on the farm,
besides bringing intense activity for
the man in the fields, also brings
housecleaning time for the farm
woman and only, too often it is
necessary for her to spend from a
f eok to ten days In doing this work
by old-fashioned tiresome methods,"
says Wm. Mahrt, local Delco-Light
representative, of Hardman.
"However, several farm women In
this vicinity are going to do their
spring housecleaning this year in a
lot less time and without near the
hard work, through the modern con
veniences of Delco-Light electric
service and running water under
pressure," he continued.
According to Mr. Mahrt, these
housewives will do their sweeping
of rugs right on the floor instead
of taking them out on the clothes
line or on the grass to be beaten
by hand, and instead of standing
over a tub of hot water trying to
get their window curtains clean by
rubbing them on an old-fashioned
washboard, they will put the cur
tains in an electric washing mach
ine, turn a switch and let the wash
er do the work.
"Then when it comes to ironing
the curtains, it will not be neces
sary for them to make countless
trips between the ironing board
and the kitchen stove to keep the
flat iron hot, for they will stand or
sit right at the board and use an
electric iron that stays hot all the
time it is in use," he says. "But
that is not all the help they are
going to have, for instead of car
rying, nobody knows how many
buckets of water from the outside
pump to the house for scrubbing,
all they will do is go to the kitchen
sink or the bathroom upstairs, turn
a faucet and get all the water they
