Another Year And The World
jafc Wtflfc aim
By F. F. WEHMEYER,
Heppner Forest Ranger.
During the past few years the
federal government and other tim
ber owners have been worried over
the heavy losses occasioned by in
sects. In the Heppner district thou
sands of trees have died. Losses
from this cause became apparent
about five years ago and increased
at a tremendous ratio until the
winter of 1932-33.
Bugs are generally unpopular
and distasteful as a subject to most
readers, but when they reach out
and do thousands and perhaps hun
dreds of thousands of dollars dam
age to the future timber revenues
of a community both, they and
their work should be recognized.
The bug doing the brunt of the
damage in this part of the country
is the Western Pine beetle and
whose name is several times longer
than his body. This beetle is a
brownish black scamp about an
eighth of an inch long and presents
the same general appearance as the
common weevil, found in flour or
other farinaceous products.
These beetles have two complete
life cycles each year, which means
two attacks. Sometimes if the
weather is especially favorable there
will be two and a half generations
each year. In other words the last
generation enters the tree and lays
dormant until early the following
The Mountain Pine beetle is also
prevalent in this part of the coun
try. It has nearly the same general
appearance as the western pine bee
tle but is slightly larger, has one
life cycle each year and usually con
fines its attacks to the lodge pole
pine, though it will readily attack
yellow pine, especially in mixed
We also have the White Fir Bark
beetle, which has made heavy in
roads into that species of timber.
Each species of beetle -may be
readily identified by the gallery
patterns they leave on the under
surface of the bark. When the eggs
of the beetle hatch the larva starts
to eat its way to the surface. Chang
ing enroute into a soft yellowish
white beetle. On emergence they
are a very light brown and still
somewhat soft. They stay on the
bark for a day or two, hardening
their shells in the sunlight, then
they swarm or make a flight to an
other green healthy tree. Here
they mate, then eat their way into
the cambian layer of the new host.
They eat their way along galleries
or tunnels depositing their eggs in
$eem$ to be ettm$ better every yearl ..
among the wood like body waste.
After the eggs are layed, the parent
Trees attacked can be easily spot
ted as the needles all start to fade at
once, owing to the tree being gir
dled. A close inspection shows saw
dust in the bark crevices. Pine
trees in an endeavor to drown out
the invaders often show pitch and
saw dust exudations on the surface
of the bark, where the beetles have
constructed tunnels to the outside
to ventilate the inner galleries.
If the tree is covered with small
round holes in the bark, it indicates
that the new generation has em
erged and swarmed.
Weather conditions during the
winter of 1932-33 were extremely
harsh on bark beetle life. This was
probably due to sudden and extreme
cold spells following rather long
periods of mild weather. Bark
samples sent to Portland from this
district for analysis by government
entomologists indicate a death loss
of 51 percent and much heavier
losses in other localities. However,
the loss here was sufficient to check
new work at least 75 percent during
the past summer. In October hun
dreds of woodpeckers moved in and
were acting as a mop-up crew. It
is hoped that the epidemic has been
checked. New work, including sev
eral trees in a cluster or group
should be reported in for investi
Farmers Ask Many Questions
Hillsboro What are the principal
things on which Washington coun

county agent? Of the 5366 who
called at his office during 1933,
about 1000 came to discuss either

MAGGIE ANN HUNT,
Why Hospitals Use
a Liquid Laxative
Hospitals and doctors have always
used liquid laxatives. And the public
is fast returning to laxatives in liquid
form. Do you know the reasons?
The dose of a liquid laxative can be
measured. The action can thus be
regulated to suit individual need. It
forms no habit: you need not take a
"double dose" a day or two later.
Nor will a mild liquid laxative irritate
The right dose of a liquid laxative
brings a perfect movement, and there
is no discomfort at the time, or after.
The wrong cathartic may often do
mnr harm than elnnA
A properly prepared liquid laxative
like Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
brings safe relief from constipation.
It gently helps the average person's
bowels back to regularity. Dr. Cald
well s byrup Pepsin is an approved
liquid laxative which all druggists
keep ready for use. It makes an
ideal family laxative; effective for
all aces, and mav be given the
youngest child. Member N. R. A.
CWA Funds Provide
Funds for State Cities
Eugene. Material for a complete
reference bureau and library on
municipal government will be com
piled and made readily available by
the Bureau of Municipal Research
of the University of Oregon, It was
announced here recently by Her
man Kehrli, director of the bureau
and executive secretary of the Lea
gue of Oregon Cities. Funds to pro
vide for Bix assistants to complete
the work have been obtained from
the Civil Works administration.
All cities in Oregon are requested
to cooperate with the bureau so that
the compilation may be as complete
as possible. Copies of budgets,
methods of raising revenue, espec
ially other than taxation and other
information will be sought from all
The bureau will analyze all city
budgets and compile comparative
data. In this way each city will be
able to compare Its expenditures,
income and other items with other
municipalities and the information
is expected to be of great value.
Statements will be obtained from
all county assesors on the delin
quent taxes of the cities, and tax
indebtedness will also be included
in the studies. Records for the past
10 years will be used.
The project Is hailed by officials
as one of the most valuable ever
made, and many cities are expected
to reap substantial benefit from it.

ON OREGON FARMS
Potato Situation Surveyed
Klamath Falls A recent survey
of the local potato situation by
County Agent C. A Henderson
showed that appoximately 1100 cars
had been shipped out up to January
1, and that 2300 more still remained
to be shipped. It also showed
some 60 or 60 new farm storage
cellars completed during the 1933
season. The 10,000 acres in potatoes
last year made an average yield of
150 sacks per acre, the highest av
erage yield ever recorded In Klam
Farms Drained and Irrigated
Corvallis Drainage and Irriga
tion projects have been worked out
by two Benton county farmers dur
ing the past month with the assist
ance of County Agent W. S. Averill.
A drainage ditch some 700 feet long
was laid out on the V. C. Carter
farm in north Benton county to
drain a swampy place comprising
some Ave or six acres in a field
On the Kelloway farm at Blodgett
an irrigation ditch was laid out for
a project that will eventually in
elude some 35 or 40 acres, part of
which will be In pasture.
Weed Killers Best Used Dry
Dallas The easiest, cheapest and
quickest way to kill Canada thistle
is by scattering the dry chemical
weed killer on the ground In March,
says J, R. Beck, county agent of
Polk county. This conclusion was
reached as the result of trials and
demonstrations on various farms
of the county. In every case where
the chemical was sprinkled on the
ground dry In the spring the kills
were better than by spraying, Mr.
Mrs. Pauline Quald came in from
Portland Monday evening and Is
