Salad Suggestions Offered
By Nutrition OSC Expert
The coming of spring means va
rious things to various persons, but
to the homemaker it means one
thing in particular a new supply
of fresh vegetables to aid in keep
ing the daily menus healthful and
One of the most acceptable ways
of serving vegetables raw, the state
in which they retain the greatest
number of vitamins, is in salads,
says Miss Lucy Case, nutrition
specialist of the home economics
division of the Oregon State college
extension service. There are thous
ands of salad combinations and
more are being discovered every
day by homemakers with imagina
tion and ingenuity.
To be attractive, however, salads
should always be cold, crisp and
fresh, says Miss Case. Ingredients
for bowl salads are best mixed by
folding and tossing with two forks.
Stirring is likely to result in a
mushy texture.
Another essential factor in pre
paring salads is to have the edge of
the bowl or plate clean and free
from drippings, and to look ingre
dients over carefully for specks of
dirt of other foreign material and
bad places in the greens. It is also
best to dry the lettuce leaves or
greens before using, and to use the
right amount of dressing not too
much nor too little, Miss Case points
Numerous other hints for prepar
ing salads, as well as a list of 101
suggested salad combinations of
vegetables, fruits, meats and other
foods, are contained in a mimeo
graphed pamphlet, HE 182, recently
prepared by Miss Case and now
available upon request at the col

Horse Numbers Shrink
During Past Ten Years
Should production of colts be con
tinued at the present rate, the num
ber of horses and mules will proba
bly be reduced to around 10 million
by 1940, according to a report just
issued by the Oregon State college
extension service. The horse and
mule population in 1920 was 25 mil
The horse and mule population of
Oregon on January 1, 1931, was 174,-
W(l head, compared to 286,000 head
10 years ago. This is a reduction
of 40 per cent.
The market outlook for horses
and mules depends largely upon
the extent power operated equip
ment may continue to replace work
animals, the report continues.
Prices remain low In the western
states, and only a slight tendency
for prices to advance has been not
ed in the eastern states. Some ob
servers think the demand, especial
ly for mules, may be good in five or
six years.
(From National Wool Marketing Corp.)
One of the principal points of
encouragement in the 1930 wool con
sumption figures of the U. S. De
partment of Commerce, as analyzed
bv the National Wood Marketing
corporation, is the sharp decline in
importation and consumption of
foreign wools.
Imports of combing and clothing
wool into the United States in 1930
were smaller than for any year
since 1913. Imports of carpet wools
for the same year were the small
est since 1920.
Imports of combing and clothing
wool for the past year amounted to
approximately 60.000.000 pounds, a
sharp decrease from the 1929 im
000.000. The maintenance of way
and structures budget, which in
cludes roadway and track, tunnels
and bridges, ties and rails, ballast,
fencing, signals and telegraph, and
buildings and other structures,
amounts to $27,000,000. The capital
expenditures budget, which covers
new work, totals $10,200,000. The
budgets indicate that the Union Pa
cific intends not only to maintain
the system at its present high stan
dard but also to actively prosecute
the improvement programs which
have characterized its transcontin
netal lines for a number of years.

The principal expenditures for

Well's Springs, historic watering
place on the route of the Old Ore
gon Trail, is now the site of oil drill
ing operations. Recently northern
Morrow county became suddenly in
terested in the operations because
a strong flow of gas was struck.
The gas when first released makes
a 30-inch column of flame, which
gradually falls away to about eight
inches, according to S. E. Notson,
district attorney of Morrow county,
who arrived in the city yesterday
for the meeting of the Oregon State
Chamber of Commerce, which con
venes today. Water taken from the
well, if allowed to stand, collects a
slight film of oil. The operators
were recently advised, however, by
a geologist that the more promising
location for an oil well would be on
a rounding hill near the springs. He
believes that this may be an oil
"dome." Mr. Notson stated that the
present shaft, which is now down
about 300 feet, will be continued in
hope of striking a strong enough
gas flow to supply fuel for the con
templated drilling operations on the
"dome." Well's springs are made
up of a group of artesian water out
croppings. The water has sulphur

In reading over hte Boardman
items it seems that they feel at lib
erty to speak out in public In re
gard to their school matters, and
as time is drawing near for the
hiring of our teachers for the- com
ing year, we as patrons of the
Hardman district are very much
interested in having a better school.
We believe this can be accom
plished only by hiring teachers who
have the welfare of the pupils at
heart and will take an active Inter
est in community affairs.
For the past year there has been
a great deal of dissatisfaction am
ong the parents even to the extent
that some have taken their chil
dren out of school and are placing
them in another district.
There seems to be a lot of com
plaint about the use of bad lan
guage on the school grounds.
We also feel that as the time
draws near, when our children will
take their final examinations that
they should lose no unnecessary
time that should be applied to their
work and yet it seems to be a daily
occurrence for school to take up
late and dismiss early, to say noth

thousands of people that during the
past thirty days alone thirty-two
leading physicians have broken the
rule of a Tife-time and have come
out openly and publicly to give it
their unqualified endorsement
So startling have been the reports
in many thousands of cases that
selected physicians in principal
cities were expressly retained to
study the Sargon formula and re
