Berry Canning Season
Brings Hints on Method
Raspberries and logans are the
seasonable berries now ready for
canning, and both lend themselves
well to the cold pack method of
canning, says Lucy A. Case, exten
sion specialist in foods and nutri
tion at O. S. C. Those living on or
near berry farms have the advan
tage of being able to can berries
within a few hours after picking,
or at least the same day, thus in
suring best color and flavor. Here
are some of the directions given by
Miss Case for cold-pack canning:
Wash the berries lightly, if at all,
in a colander. Place hot! sterilized
jars in a dish pan of very hot wa
ter. Pour a few berries into the
jar and shake them down by gent
ly tapping the bottom of the jar
against a wooden board. Place the
jar in the hot water again, add
more berries and shake them down
alternately to insure full jars. Add
boiling hot sirup made in the fol
lowing proportions: For one dozen
quart jars of red or black raspber
ries, bring to a boll seven cups of
sugar and 11 cups of hot water.
For loganberries use 10 cups of su
gar and 10 cups of hot water. Fill
the jars with sirup to one-half inch
from the top and partially seal. In
case of automatic seal type of jar,
place lid and clamp on jar. Leave
jar in the pan of hot water until all
are ready to process.
Have hot water bath boiling.
Place jars in boiler on a rack
which raises the jars at least one
half inch from the bottom, with
water one inch over the tops of the
jars. Cover the container and
bring to the boiling point again as
soon as possible to help insure full
jars. Boil 20 minutes, counting the
time from when the water Is at a
rolling bo(l. Remove jars imme
diately, complete the seal and in
vert to cool, except automatic type
Oven canning and other methods
of food preservation are described
in Extension Bulletin 450, "Home
Food Preservation," which is
available free at the office of the
county agent or at the home econ
omlcs extension office at Corvallls.
How Much Food to Can?
"Budget" Gives Answer
'If you plan to serve home can
ned fruit three times a week next
winter and spring, and your house
hold consists of four persons, you
will need to fill about 120 quart
jars with fruit this summer," says
Lucy A. Case, extension specialist
in foods and nutrition at O. S. C,
who is the author of a new leaflet
entitled "Canned and Stored Food
This folder also shows that such
a family of four could be expected
to use 90 quarts of tomatoes and
tomato juice and 65 pints of peas
or the same amount dried. About
300 pints of beans, corn, peas, spin
ach and other greens and soup
mixtures will provide the family of
four with vegetables five times a
week next winter and sprlng.

Special FM)d Values Are
Found in Oregon Pears
High vitamin content of Oregon
.pears and the presence in this fruit
of the rare levulose sugar has been
revealed in research carried on at
the Oregon Medical school and Or
egon State college on a cooperative
basis with the Oregon-Washington
In a recent report of this work,
Henry Hartman, horticulturist with
the bureau and stationed at Cor
vallis, reported that preliminary
findings are promising, but that
much work remains to be done be
fore the extent of their importance
can be determined.
The investigation of the vitamin
content of winter pears was made
by Dr. Ira A. Manville, associate
professor of physiology at the Ore
gon Medical school at Portland. He
found that the Winter Nelis varie
ty was particularly high in vitamin
C content and that winter pears in
general compare favorably with
oranges in this regard.
Intensive work on the chemical
content of pears has been carried
on by J. C. Moore at Oregon State
college. He has established defi
nitely the presence of levulose su
gar in the pear, ths only form of
sugar tolerated by the systems of
those persons afflicted with diabe
tes. He has not yet worked out any
practical method of extracting it in
Levulose now commands an ex
ceptionally high market price, run
ning up to $25 a pound because of
the difficulty in extracting it Re
cent reports are, however, that an
Iowa scientist has found a way of
refining it from Jerusalem arti
chokes at a cost of only a few
cent3 a pound. Mr. Moore is now
in the middle west investigating
this report and related matters
pertaining to possible recovery of
levulose from pears.
Whether pears as such, or wheth
er a fruit syrup made from them
will be of special value to diabetics
remains to be determined, says
It is hoped that by continuing
this work much valuable informa
tion for both producers and con
sumers of pears will be developod,
as past investigation of the food
value of pears has been unusually
Back - to - Primitive Used
In Harvesting New Grass
A "back to the primitive" move
ment in seed harvesting methods
appeared to have been inaugurated
at the Oregon Experiment station
at Corvallis the first week in July
when farmers from five counties
were seen carefully stripping by
hand the seed from the heads of
grass on several acres.
The explanation is that this grass

now it is ready for more general
distribution to growers. No ma

Harry Scohth, federal agrono
mist at the station, made county
agents the proposition that if they
cared to bring in some farmers
and strip the seed, he would assign
certain parts of some six acres of
the grass then ripening, and they
could have all they could strip. His
offer was accepted by farmers
from, Coos, Clackamas, Washing

The grass has been grown exper
imentally for 15 years and is now
known to be one of the most val

much like timothy. The grass
stands the lowest temperatures
here and can be under water for
months at a time and still come

year it was still growing when
other grasses were killed by the
cold. It is the one grass that ap

Finally Jesus knew the necessity
for repetition and practised It. One
of the sons of President Garfield
was traveling with him through
Ohio, when the President was ad
dressing county fairs. At the close
of the day he asked his boy what
he thought of his speeches. The
boy was embarrassed by the ques
"Why . . . why they were fine,
dad," he stammered, "but I felt
awfully uncomfortable part of the
time. You repeated yourself so of
ten; once you said the very same
thing In different words four time
Gartield slapped the boy's shoul
der with a hearty laugh.
"So you thought your old dad
was running out of ideas, did you?"
he cried. Well, I don't blame
you; but there's method in his mad
ness. Tomorrow when I reach that
passage in my talk, you watch the
audience. The first time I make
the point, you'll see by their faces
that a few folks near the platform
get it. But further back there will
be noise and commotion; people
will be turning their heads to find
out who has just driven up, or
what sort of a hat Mrs. Jones has
on and they won't hear me at all.
When I repeat it the first time a
few faces in the middle of the
crowd will show a response; on the
third go, I'll make still more con
verts, and on the fourth trial they'll
all have a notion of what I am
talking about. But It takes four
shots to land them all; experience
with all sorts of audiences has
made me sure of that."
It has been said that "reputation
is repetition." No important truth
can be Impressed upon the minds
of any large number of people -by
being said only once. The thoughts
which Jesus had to give the world
were revolutionary, but they were
few in number. "God is your
father," he said, "caring more for
the welfare of every one of you
than any human father can possi
bly care for his children. His King
dom is happiness! His rule is love."
This is what he had to teach, but
he knew the necessity of driving
it home from every possible angle.
So in one of his stories God is
the shepherd searching the wilds
for one wandering sheep; in an
other, the Father welcoming home
a prodigal boy; in another a King

amounts and expects them to be

The weave of a cotton fabric has
a great deal to do with the length
of its service, says Mrs. Sager.
Regularity of weave, even spacing
of thread, regularity In size of
threads, and the straightness of
weave, that is, warp and filling
threads at right angles to each oth
er, are qualities that are essential
both to good appearance and dura
bility of the material. Broken
threads, rough places where an un
even or knotted thread occurs, are
in many cases the cause of a tear
or hole in the fabric when it is used
or laundered. Cottons with coarse
or heavy warp threads and lighter
or finer filling threads or vice-versa
are only as strong as their weakest
threads. Heavier threads tend to
cut weaker ones, especially where
there is any rubbing, as under the
arms, at the elbows or at the side
