of ornamental plants and shrubs are
being tested on the Umatilla branch

plantings around the buildings.They
are being watched primarily for
hardiness, as many of the ordinary

THISTLE CONTROL REPORTED
Albany Keeping Canada thistles
constantly below the ground surface
through cultivation is the principal

farmers last summer. Farmers who
obtained satisfactory control culti
vated their land an average of 16
times, while those who got poor re
sults cultivated an average of eight
times. Starting cultivation early in
the season also seemed to give bet
ter results than where it was de
layed until late June or early July.
