That Apple a Day Is
Used in Many a Way
With the markets crowded with
bushels of tempting red and yellow
apples and pears from Oregon or
chards, homemakers are often par
donably bewildered as to which of
the many varieties will best suit the
family needs. Guidance in this
problem is now offered by the home
economics division of the Oregon
State college extension service In
the form of a list of apple and pear
varieties, grouped according to the
use for which they are best adapted.
The guide also gives approximate
dates when each variety is first
available as well as usual keeping
time. It is entitled "Varieties of
Oregon Apples and Pears Classified
for Best Use," and is free for the
asking from county extension of
fices or from the college at Cor-
Apples and pears deserve a place
in our diet practically every day of
the year, not only because of their
sweet delicious, juicy flavor but also
because of their ease of prepara
tion, convenience, low price, and
high food value," says Miss Lucy A.
Case, foods and nutrition specialist
of the O. S. C. extension service.
'Apples are a good source of Vita
mins C and G, and pears of B and
G, which help in maintaining phy
sical health and vigor. They also
furnish valuable roughage and min
erals and help to maintain the nor
mal alkalinity of the body."
While a large part of the apple
crop is eaten raw each year, the
fruit can also be prepared in in
numerable delicious dishes, Miss
Case points out Few could ever
exhaust such a list as baked ap
ples, cobbler, dumpling, brown bet-
ty, sauce, applesauce cake, upside-
down cake, fritters, stuffing, pud
dings, gelatine desserts, salads, can
died apples, jellies, butters, relishes,
spiced apples, syrup, cider and many
others. Pears are but slightly less
The best varieties of apples and
pears for eating are not necessarily
the best for cooking. Most va
rieties of apples make good pies, but
those that retain their firmness are
best for this purpose. For baking,
varieties which become tender and
juicy, yet hold their shape after
cooking are most satisfactory, while
for sauce those that lose their shape
with cooking are often preferred.
Most tart apples that are somewhat
immature make good jelly and are
good for canning.
Oregon Leads All States
In Bangs Disease Drive
Oregon passed the 300,000 mark
in tests for Bangs disease with the
close of October, reports Dr. B. T.
Simms, head of the veterinary de
partment at Oregon State college,
where the laboratory work for the
eradication campaign Is conducted.
October was the banner month since
the campaign was started in Sep
tember, 1934, with 34,540 tests
bringing the total to 203,042.
The campaign in Oregon is far
ahead of that in any other state
considering the relative total num-
Der ol dairy cattle, a national re
port on the progress of testing
shows. Minnesota, Ohio and Wis
consin are the only states exceed
ing Oregon in total number of tests
made, while there states each have
from seven to 10 times the number
of dairy cattle found in this state,
The number of reactors found to
date in Oregon amounts to 6.76
per cent with 2.92 per cent sus
pects. This is an exceptionally low
percentage compared with most of
the other states, accounted for by
the years of state encouragement of
Bangs disease clean-up. About 50,
000 tests a year had been made for
the six years before the federal pro
gram started, Dr. Simms" records
Under the federal clean-up pro'
gram approximately $450,000 has
been used or obligated in Oregon
Present allotment of funds will car
ry the program to January 1, and
a further allotment has been
sured to continue the work through
next June. Oregon farmers have
been cooperating heartily in the
clean-up work so that at present
the campaign is nearly complete In
many Willamette valley counties
At the conclusion of the program,
It is believed that all of the Wil
lamette valley counties, as well as
Curry, Clatsop, Columbia and Coos,
will have tested more than 90 per
cent ot the cattle. By October 1 a
total of 27,431 herds had been test
ed, of which 21,800 or more than 70
percent were entirely clean, while

Huge Tract Assigned OSC
For Grazing Experiments
Completion of arrangements by
which Oregon State college will op
erate a 16,000 acre range livestock
experimental grazing area in cen
tral Oregon, has been announced by
Willard L. Marks, president of the
State Board of Higher Education.
The land is located about 40 miles
west of Burns and includes what
has long been known as the Gap
The land has been made available
by the department of the interior
as part of its comprehensive plan
of administering range lands of the
public domain which have now
come under systematic control thru
operation of the Taylor Grazing act.
The interior department agreed to
furnish the land and equipment for
the huge grazing tract if the agri
cultural experiment station of the
state college would conduct the re
Preliminary steps toward com
pleting such an arrangement were
started nearly a year ago and have
now been confirmed by official
agreements, Marks announced. The
new experimental work will pro
vide Oregon stockmen with the ben
efits of careful research studies into
the best methods and practices of
range management which will re
store and maintain normal forage
production on the millions of acres
of range lands.
While this research will be car
ried on in Oregon, the station is to
be the only one of its kind estab

All Time License Record
Established This Year
Another all-time high in motor
vehicle records has been set this
year in the issuance of license
plates, with 293,343 distributed up to
September 30 by Earl Snell, secre
tary of state. In 1934, 272,745 ve
hicles were listed to September 30.
A 30 per cent Increase In the
number of certificates of title is
sued this year for motor vehicles is
indicative of the improvement in
business, believes Snell. In the first
nine months of 1935, 114,829 titles
were issued as compared to 88,002
In the same period in 1934. In ad
dition, 5,580 duplicate certificates
were issued, bringing total title
transactions for the year to 120,409.
Total fee collections during the
nine months were $2,660,476.53, as
compared to $2,148,029.96 in the
