Pea Vine Silage Found
Good For Lamb Feeding
Union Many inquiries have been
received from time to time as to
the feeding value of pea vines, a
by-prouuet of the rapidly expanding
pea canning industry of eastern
Oregon and Washington.
In order to obtain some informa
tion on the subject these were in
eluded in the materials fed in lamb
fattening experiments at the live
stock branch experiment station
here last fall. If pea vines are
properly fed in connection with al
falfa hay they constitute a valua
ble addition to the ration and will
replace alfalfa hay in the ratio of
approximately three pounds to one
Pea vines used in the experiment
were hauled directly from the Mil-ton-Freewater
district and were
run through a hay chopper before
being trampled into a trench silo.
Thus treated, the pea vines changed
into silage with little waste.
Three lots of lambs were fed all
of the silage they would clean up,
together with varying amounts of
grain and hay. Best results were
obtained when the pea vines were
fedj with one pound of chopped al
falfa hay per head each day, and
whole wheat On such a ration the
lambs consumed an average of 3.7
pounds of pea vines per head each
day and made good gains.
The feed cost per pound of gain
with this ration was about the same
as when the lambs were fed wheat
or barley with alfalfa. The lot of
lambs fed pea vines without alfalfa
or with less than a pound a day
did not make satisfactory gains
and hence the gains made were at
relatively high cost
An observation of salt require
ments of lambs on fattening ra
tions showed that the lambs mat
ing the best gains consumed the
largest amount of salt Forty lambs
on grain, hay and whole barley ra
tions which made slow gains con
sumed only 96 pounds of salt for the
88-day feeding period while 40
lambs on good rations of alfalfa
hay and grain consumed 114 pounds
in the same period. About one
pound of salt per head per month
is tne average requirement
STATE CAPITAL NEWS
(Continued from First Fagt)
House during the last session, is
said to be ambitious for advance
ment to the upper chamber.
There appears to be considerable
room for argument as to what can
be expected to happen to the House
membership. Last session the Den
ocrats controlled the House for the
first time in more than 60 years
with 38 members in the regular ses
sion and 34 in the special. Repub
licans, calling attention to their
normal majority in the state regis
trations, insist that this can not
happen again at least for another
60 years in which event there will
be a sizeable turn-over is the House
personnel on this account to begin
with. Democrats, on the other
hand, have been digging in ever
since their major victory of 1934
and are preparing to defend their
gains with all the heavy artillery
they can bring to bear on the ene-
my camp in the approaching battle
of the ballots. A number of the
House members, however, will not
try for a come back. Howard Lat-
ourette, Multnomah county demO'
crat, wilj try for election as na
tional committeeman and E. W.
Kirkpatrick, Clackamas county
aemocrat, is already out as an
avowed candidate for Congress.
Among the republican members
several are said to be anxious for
advancement to the senate. Among
these are W. A. Johnson of Grants
Pass and Harvey Wells of Port'
.land, the former having already de-
clared his intentions.
The state supreme court handed
the Home Rule amendment
knock-out blow this week so far
as traffic regulation is concerned,
In an opinion by Justice Bailey the
court held that when city traffic
laws conflict with state laws the
latter are paramount The opin-
ion represents a complete reversal
of the court's position in the case
Kalich vs. Knapp in 1914 in which
a state law was held to be uncon
stitutional because it attempted to
regulate the speed of automobiles
in the city of Portland. In its opin-
ion this week the court held that
the state has and retains, either
by act of the legislature or by vote
of the electorate, the right to en
act general laws prescribing the
speed of motor vehicles and gen
eral rules regulating traffic on the
highways of the state, which right
when exercised cannot be curtailed,

The state emergency board
meeting here today (Thursday) to
consider requests for deficiency ap-
propriations totalling more than
$23,000. This is the first meeting
of the board since the session short
ly after the close of the 1935 regu-
lar session when two of the mem
bers were held to be disqualified
because they had accepted other
public employment and forfeited
their seats in the legislature. Top-
ping the requests for help before
the board today are two from
H. Gram, state labor commissioner,
one for $7098 for the bureau of la
bor, and another for $7010 to fin
ance the work of the industrial
welfare division. O. D. Adams,
Btale director of vocational educa
tion, is asking for an appropriation
of $3472.73 for a mining survey In
cooperation with the federal gov
ernment which will match the state
money. Wallace S. Wharton, new,
ly installed executive secretary to
the governor, is asking for another
$5500 to run the budget department.
Four thousand Oregon employ
ables who were at work on sea
onal jobs last November are out
of luck now so far as jobs on re
lief projects go. Governor Martin
asked the WPA to advance the re
lief registration date to May 1 so
that these workers could qualify
for jobs but the federal adminis
trator refused to accede to the re
quest As a result those who were
not on relief rolls November 1 can
not find jobs on relief projects.
The budget department is steal
ing the legislature's thunder. When
the lawmakers met in 1935 they de
creed that salary savings in self
supported state activities should go
into the general fund.. Now the
budget makers are taking credit
for this salary diversion as savings
brought about by this department
Is fact they admit that these sal
ary diversions constitute the big
end of the departments alleged
$195,000 in "actual savings" accom
plished during the past year.
Seins may be nets to the average
individual but not to the fishermen
of the Columbia river. There a per
ennial fight wages between the
seiners and the gill netters. The
latter are sponsoring an initiative
measure to bar the seiners from the
river along with fish wheels and
traps. This week the seiners hit
back at their rivals with a measure
of their own in which they propose
to cut down the length of gill nets
from 250 to 150 fathoms. If the
seins are barred, these fishermen
say, the seiners will have to join
the gill netters in order to earn a
livelihood, and since the river is al
ready pretty well taken up with
nets they want to make them small
er in order to make room for more.
Both measures will probably be
before the voters next November,

February, 1933, when contributions
to the compensation fund covered

Such is often the case with spinach
and pea seed among the earliest
to be planted. Commercial grow
ers of these vegetables frequently
prevent this by treating the sed
with a dust of an organic mercury
compound, such as semesan, or with
copper oxide. A circular on treat
ing pea seed is available from offi
ces of all county agents.
Hotbeds in which young vegeta
ble plants are growing rarely need
to be closed down tightly except in
cold weather or at night. Losses
of plants caused by "damping-off"
are frequently induced by the hot
bed operator keeping too warm and
humid atmosphere in the frame.
Plants, even when young, need
some air circulation but with no
cold draughts. Good temperatures
are 65-75 degrees F. with lower
ones prevailing as the plants in
crease in size.
Amateur vegetable growers who
operate hotbeds and grow early
vegetable plants will succeed best
if the seedlings in the seed rows
are not allowed to become too large
for transplanting. If seed is sown
broadcast or at the rate of eight to
the linear inch the plants will have
become sufficiently crowded when
they have three leaves at which
time they are best shifted. O. S. C.

Early planting of vegetable seed.
especially in cool and moderately
wet soil, sometimes results in seed
rotting and a poor stand of plants.
Back in 1911 I met a great Ger
man scientist, Dr. Duisberg, who
showed me a set of tires he had
made for the Kaiser's car, from
artificial rubber of his own inven
tion. . I asked him how he did it
"It's perfectly simple," he replied
"It's done by the polymerization of
isoprene. " Which left me right
where I was at the start
Since then thousands of others
have tried to make rubber syn
thetically. Some have got better
results than others, but nobody yet
has produced a rubber substitute
that answers all the purposes of
natural rubber and costs no more
An American company has pro
duced something that works, but it
is too expensive for ordinary use,
The latest report from Germany is
that a synthetic rubber superior to
the natural article is being made
from petroleum. That is doubted
by practical rubber men.
Some day, however, somebody
will turn the trick.

Beef Fattening Again
Profitable in Trials
Low grade hay with reasonably
priced grain rations again proved
successful in fattening steers this
winter in tests reported on at the
annual western cattle feeders' day
held at Oregon State college Feb
ruary 22. The trials this year dif
fered in that older feeder steers
were used, and a mixture of barley
or wheat was added to mill-run
which was fed alone last year.
Barley mixed with the mill-run
made the brain more palatable,
eliminating any trouble from "go-
ing off feed." Ground wheat when
used instead of barley in the same
way served well to fatten the steers,
though the gains were not quite as
rapid. Wheat might well be used
however, if other conditions made
The steers fed this year ended the
three-months feeding period with
good finish and were expected to
top the Portland market at around
$7.25 per cwt. The difference be
tween the price of feeder cattle in
the fall and fat cattle in the spring
is less this year than the normal
$2.50 spread. Even so the opera
