Good Cottage Cheese
Easy to Make at Home
Cottage cheese, a nutritious and
easily digestible protein food, is
made in small quantities for home
use by a very simple process and
with ordinary equipment, says Dr.
G. H. Wilster, professor of dairy
rnanufacturing at Oregon State
college. Dr. Wilster offers the fol
lowing suggestions for obtaining
the most palatable product by the
The first essential, he says, is to
start with good quality milk. Al
though left-over milk that has be
come sour may be used if it has not
developed a bitter flavor and if the
whey has not started to separate,
fresh milk is more satisfactory for
cheese making because it is possi
ble to direct and control the sour
ing. The best method is to allow sweet
skim milk to remain in a clean,
warm place at a temperature of
about 70 to 75 degrees F. until it
clabbers, when It should have a
clean, sour and pleasant flavor, Dr.
Wilster explains. This ordinarily
takes from 25 to 30 hours, but the
process may be hastened by adding
one or two tablespoonsful of good
flavored sour milk to each gallon
of fresh milk.
When thickened and clabbored,
the milk is cut into pieces about two
inches square and stirred thorough
ly, being careful not to break up
the curd too much. The next step
is to heat the curd. This is most
conveniently done by placing the
container In hot water to heat it
to 100 degrees F. The curd should
be held at this temperature for
about 30 minutes, during which
time It should be stirred for a min
ute at 5 minute intervals.
The curds and whey are then
poured into a colander or strainer
over which a piece of cheesecloth
has been laid. After about five or
ten minutes work the curds toward
the center of the colander with a
spoon, raising and lowering ends
of the cloth to help make the whey
drain faster. To complete the
draining, tie the ends of the cloth
together and hang it up until the
whey ceases to flow in a steady
The curd is then ' emptied from
the bag and worked with a spoon
or butter paddle until smooth and
about the consistency of mashed
potatoes. Sour or sweet cream may
be added to increase the smooth
ness and Improve the flavor, and
salt Is added according to taste,
about one tcaspoonful to one pound
pf curd. One gallon of skim milk
makes about li pounds of cheese.
Tourist Traffic Up
By A. L. LINDBECK
Salem. A pay-as-you-ijo plan
for financing the new capitol build
ing is gaining support in official
circles here. Advocates of this pro
posal explain that there is nothing
to prevent the legislature from
making a direct appropriation cov
ering the-state's share of the cap
itol cost With the Public Works
administration advancing 45 per
cent of the estimated $3,500,000, ten
tatively fixed as the cost of the new
building, thav state's share would
be $1,925,000. The fund to meet the
appropriation could be raised thru
the regular annual tax levies which,
it is now estimated, will permit in
clusion of approximately $800,000 In
the yearly budget for capitol finan
cing. In -its recent '"progress report"
the state planning board estimated
that it would require two years to
"omplele the capitol after the con
tract is let In that event there
would be at least $1,600,000 avail
able out of current revenues to ap
ply toward construction costs, dur
ing this period and the remaining
$325,000 could either be borrowed
from other state funds now lying
idle in state banks and earning no
interest, or trie construction pro
gram could be extended Into the
Governor Martin who 'has dis
cussed this plan with some of his
advisers raises the objection that it
would impose an unfair tax burden
on the present generation in pay
ing for a building designed to serve
for many generations. Sponsors
of the plan, however, counter with
the argument that it would save the
taxpayers from $300,000 to $500,000
in interest charges which would be
added to the cost through a loan or
The opinion of Attorney General
Van Winkle holding the proposed
rental plan for repayment of a
PWA loan to involve a violation of
the constitutional inhibition against
state indebtedness was not unex
pected in view of repeated rulings
by the Oregon supreme court dis
approving similar schemes by coun
ty and city governments in their
efforts to circumvent debt restric
tions. With the rental scheme definitely
"out" two alternatives are avail
able to the capitol builders. One is
the proposed legislative appropria
tion with annual tax levies within
the six percent limit. The other is
to resort to a special election for
approval of a loan or a bond issue.
Because the statutes do not pro
vide for the sale of 15-year bonds
as had been contemplated by the
state highway commission in re
financing its Coast Highway bridge
bonds, motorists of Oregon will be
stuck for an extra $400,000 or more
in interest charges over the 25 years
which the new state issue will run.
R. H. Baldock, state highway en
gineer, had figured to save approx
imately $2,000,000 by exchanging the
.present PWA 30-year revenue bonds
for 15 - year general obligation
bonds. The law provides only for
the sale of 25- and five-year bonds
but even on the longer term paper
it is believed there will be a saving
of approximately $1,600,000 in in
terest due largely to a lower rate.
The commission is advertising $3,
000,000 of 25-year bonds for sale on
July 25 and plans to float a short
term issue of five-year bonds cov
ering the remaining $1,200,000 nec
essary to finance the bridges, later.
Governor Martin has no intention
of setting himself up as a court of
appeals from the supreme court
He made this clear in a statement
this week explaining hla refusal to
grant executive clemency to Thom
as Black, Malcolm Samuelson and
James Hanlon, convicted of assault
and battery in connection with the
longshoremen's strike in Portland
last summer. "To interfere in these
cases would be the grossest abuse
of the power of my office," the gov
ernor declared. "Rather It seems
to me that the authority and power
of this office should be exercised
to uphold our courts and law en
forcement agencies in the mainten
ance of the law of the land."
George Smith, prominent Rose
burg sportsman and hotel owner, is
slated for appointment to the House
seat left vacant when Representa
tive Wm. W. Knight accepted ap
pointment as assistant district at
torney for Douglas county, accord
ing to grape vine information
reaching the capital this week. The
same source of information has it
that Walter Fisher, Roseburg dem
ocrat, is facing a lot of opposition
for re-appointment to the state
senate. Fisher who lost his senate
seat because he was a member of
the state bonus commission, has re
signed from the commission In or

A huge tract of timber compris
ing 350,000 acres In eastern Coos
and western Douglas counties and
another tract of 50,000 acres in the
southern end of Coos county were

Governor Martin Monday. The
closure was recommended by Lynn
Cronemiller, state forester, as a
precaution against forest fires.
Tourist traffic is on the up-grade
again. June registration of out-of-state
automobiles totalling 14,720,

One of the oldest documents in
the oflicial archives of the state Is
a commission signed by John W.
Davis, territorial governor, ap
pointing Noah Hubcr as prosecut
ing attorney for the second Judicial
district. The commission which Is
done in longhand throughout, bears
the territorial seal and is dated
June 5, 1854. Acceptance of the
appointment is dated July 12, 1854,
which makes it just 81 yean old
this week. The document was un
earthed by Secretary of State Snell
in rearranging the official records
of his department ,
More than 96,000 full time work
ers are now employed in Oregon
industries which have accepted the
protection of the Workmen's Com
pensation act, according to records
of the Industrial Accident commis
sion. This compares very favorably
with the 81,630 workers on the com
mission's records a year ago and the
69,793 employees who were holding
down Jobs In these same industries
at the depth of the depression in
1932-33. Peak of industrial em
ployment in Oregon as revealed by
the records of this commission was
in 1929-30 when 111,252 full time
workers were under the protection
of the Compensation act
Negotiations between the com
mittee appointed by Governor Mar
tin and trustees of Willamette uni
versity for the purchase of the uni
versity campus for a capitol site are
understood to have reached a stale
mate over the matter of price.
University students are under
stood to be agreed to sale of the
property but at a price which will
permit purchase of a larger tract
and replacement of the present
buildings with new and more mod
ern structures. Estimates as to the
amount necessary to cover this pro
gram range from $500,000 to as high
as $1,000,000 with many legislators
known to be opposed to even the
smaller amount as the price for a
new capitol site.
Friends of the university see in
pie present emergency a splendid
opportunity to unload the school
property as a preliminary step
toward expansion of the institu
tion. On the other hand state offi
cials regard the campus as an ideal
capitol site, susceptible of land
scaping into a beautiful setting for
the proposed new state house if it
can be had at a price which the
state can afford to pay.
Grants Pass is the tourist gate
way into Oregon judged by records
of the automobile registration de
partment. More out-of-state cars
register at the Grants Pass office
than at any other point in the state.
For the first six months of this year
7913 foreign cars secured visitors'
permits at this Junction of the Red
woods with the Pacific highway.
Ashland, with 5199 registrations,
was second and Brooking with 2004,
third. Other registration points
report the following records for the
six month period: Arlington, 1448;
Clatskanie, 83; Forest Grove, 54;
Free water, 178; Hillsboro, 57; Hood

Official Oregon was pretty well
scattered about over the state on
Independence Day. Rufus Holman
state treasurer, was the orator of
the day at Port Orford in Curry
county. Earl Snell, secretary of
state, made the principal address
at the Salem celebration. Governor
Charles H. Martin spent the day
quietly on the McKenzie river, leav
ing the oratory to his pinch-hitters,
with his secretary, W. L. Gosslin,
speaking at Albany and Frank Mc
Culloch, utilities commissioner,
J,wlsting the tail of the American
