Hairy Sherman, farmer on Wil
low creek above Heppner, has
found that a seeding of ladino
clover, smooth brome and orch
ard grass is hard to beat for an
irrigated pasture. Two acres of
pasture near his farm buildings
were seeded to this mixture in
the spring of 1946.
The seeding was pastured
some last summer to keep it
from growing too rank. This
spring Mr. Sherman has had to
add cattle from time to time to
keep the pasture grazed down
until at present he has iive cows,
three calves, and three young
bulls in the two-acre plot.
Mr. Sherman, a purebred Short
horn breeder, uses the pasture
to keep up registered animals
needing attention. This pasture
seeding is one of the recommen
dations made by the Heppner
Soil Conservation district in a
farm plan written for Mr. Sher
man. FLOWER ARRANGEMENT

New Textiles on Market

Characteristics and labeling

subjects to homemakers this
A new shrink-proofing process
known commercially as "Res
loom" and "Lanaset" has been
developed for wool socks, mit
tens, sweaters and blankets.
Near the end of the war the Ar
my was buying about seven mil
lion pairs of socks per month
which had undergone this pro
cess. Treated socks washed two
hours in Army washers shrunk
10 per cent and were soft when
they dried. Untreated socks
shrunk 30 per cent and were
stiff. This shrink-proofing pro
cess is not the same as "pre
shrunk." Nylon curtains have proved
unsatisfactory to homemakers

Home Freezer Discussed in
The question of buying or
building a home freezer, or whe
ther to get one at all, involves
many angles that differ from
those connected with an ordin
ary domestic refrigerator, accord
ing to authors of a new O.S.C.
station cicular, "Buying or Build
ing a Home Freezer." This bulletin-,
by F. E. Price and N. G.
Cropsey, agricultural engineers,
does not attempt to tell what or
which is best, but does list the
features to be considered and
the advantages and disadvan
tages of each.
Rntal of a freezer locker In
town may be the preferable me
thod of obtaining frozen foods
for the family, the authors point
out. This is often the cheaper
method, but for many families
the convenience of a freezer in
the home and the high quality
of food obtained cannot be mea
sured in dollars and cents, they
A comparison between top
opening and front opening cab
inets is made. The former is us
ually less expensive to build, the
doors do not freeze shut so of
ten, and frost accumulation is
usually much slower. On the
other hand with the front ope
ning types the packages are j
much more accessible, they have
better circulation of air, more
even temperature distribution,
and occupy less floor space for
One important factor to re
member in either buying or
building is whether the freezer
will pass through a 30-inch door,
or at least through the door to
the room where it is to be kept,
the authors warn.
The 16-page bulletin is illus
trated with both photographs
and drawings and gives a list
of plans for home-built freezers
which may be obtained for a
