"Kill Any Black Spider
East of Cascades," Mote
The sudden infestation of Black
Widow spiders that has been re
ported from many parts of eastern
Oregon has brought many inquiries
concerning their identification and
the effect of their bite to Dr. Don
C. Mote, entomologist of the Ore
gon Experiment station. In a re
cent interview over the state owned
station at Corvallis, KOAC, Dr.
Mote says that so far as he knows
these, spiders are not found west of
The three distinctive features for
identification given by Dr. Mote are
the glossy black body with a round
abdomen about the size of a pea;
long, strong black legs that stick
up above the back somewhat like
those of a grand-daddy longlegs;
and finally a distinctive red mark
ing on the lower part of the abdo
men of the adult female.
Though roughly described as in
the shape of an hourglass, these
red markings may be in a number
of different forms or may even be
rather indistinct, warns Dr. Mote.
At times two triangular red marks
may touch to form an hourglass
shape, while again there may be
four spots instead of two or the
two may not touch.
Though the ordinary spider does
more good in eating insects than
harm, it is a safe practice in re
gions where the black widow is
known to exist to kill any black
spider, says Mote, but in doing so
to be careful not to be bitten.
The bites of the black widow do
not prove fatal on humans so far
as authentic records go, though
there are some reports of death in
the southeast that may be true. The
distress caused by the poison is so
great, however, as to warrant every
care to avoid being bitten. Several
days in the hospital is a not uncom
mon result of the bite of the black
widow. There is no specific treat
ment, according to medical men,
the only thing to do being to put
the patient to bed and give sup
The spiders are not known to
willingly attack man unless one
comes in contact with a web where
the female has a sack of eggs. The
spiders are found most frequently
in outdoor toilets, old sheds, barns,
and wood or rock piles.

N. C. Donaldson, for seven years
county agent in Wallowa county,

wheat administrator for Oregon
under the AAA and has established
headquarters at Corvallis in con
nection with Oregon State college.
Donaldson will be in charge of the
compliance work and general ad
ministrative details during the life
of the wheat contracts. Until now
the college extension service has
been the "clearing house" for this
work pending the necessity for the
permanent organization plan. Don
aldson has done outstanding work
in his county in the AAA programs
and is experienced in working with
the wheat industry.

Preliminary reports from the vol
untary city surveys of milk con
sumption shows that the amount
now in use is far below the mini
mum rquirements for general
health, says the consumers council
of the AAA which is conducting the
study among school children of the
principal cities. A news release
from Washington received at O. S.
C. states that the Portland, Ore.,
committee found that consumption
of milk and other dairy products
is "decidedly below" even the cheap
est possible adequate diet The
analysis shows that the average
consumption of milk among Port
land families questioned is less than
three quarts a week per person.
Government Shuts Down
On Shady Seed Dealers
Federal enforcement officials are
"cracking down" with considerable
regularity on seed dealers who mar
ket seed to farmers that is not as
represented in the way of purity
and germination, according to word
received by G. R. Hyslop, head of
the plant industries division at O.
In a recent case a dealer was
prosecuted for selling 100 bags of
rye for seed labeled as having 82
per cent germination which tested
only 32 per cent. Some 40 bags of
the lot still in the hands of a local
dealer were seized, and released on
ly after bond was given that the
rye would be ground or otherwise
denatured. The government main
tains seed testing laboratories
where accurate tests may be had
by growers or dealers, one of which
is located at O. S. C.
