Cause 4-H Show
To Be Postponed
Due to flood conditions in the
Columbia basin, the Eastern Ore
gon Wheat League 4-H club show
scheduled to open Monday, June
7, at The Dalles has been post
poned until June 28-29-30. This
information was received Wed
nesday from George Lindsey, one
of the publishers of The Dalles
Optimist and chairman of the ad
vertising committee for the show.
Advertising and other publi
city will follow on a new sched
ule to keep 4-H club exhibitors
and visitors informed on the new
date and any plans that may
have to be changed.
The Dalles, like other points
along the river, has had a cer
tain amount of flood conditions
to contend with, and while the
show might have been carried
through on the original sched
ule, transportation difficulties
made it seem imperative to post
pone the show.
The U. S. government is un
doubtedly the greatest show on
earth! Its continuous performance
costs money a great deal of
money, and the audience, whe
ther it boos or cheers, digs deep
for its tax-tickets. Northeastern

SUBMERSIBLE CRAFT WAX INTO ADULTHOOD
torn where I sit ... y Joe Marsh
Maybe yon rrd, where a frest
encyclopedia has sorted all basic
Ideas into s few select groups. Un
der the letter T they have:
Temperance - Truth - Tyranny.
Soatds like s funny combination.
And to philosophize a little, notice
that Truth is in the center 6e
tween Tyranny and Temperance.
Now and then you hear folks
criticize temperate people who en
joy a moderate glass of beer...
who talk sbout "two beers" getting
some one into trouble, and claim:
Then Truth steps in between, and
points out that two beers never
got an.vbody into trouble and that
somebody's trying to distort the
facts. No, there shouldn't be s Isw
there thould be Truth,
From where I sit, those ideas
are arranged just right Temper
ance on one side, Tyranny on the
other and Truth in the middle
seeing that Tyranny never en
croaches upon Temperance.

Majoring in physical education

R. Ralph Clark, OSC extension
service horticulturist, says there
ire three garden crops to avoid
planting in June, yet a whole
host of others must be planted
now with assurance they will do
well. Crops to avoid planting
now are peas, radishes and spin
ach. The latter two may bolt
and go to seed if planted in warm
weather while peas are just not
warm weather crop. All three
do best in cool, moist weather.
Commercial vegetable growers
have had the same difficulty this
year that backyard gardeners
have experienced in getting their
crops planted. Rain postponed or
eliminated planting of a good
deal of acreage in the state that
normally goes into processing
vegetables. Obviously, this will
result in a comparatively short
supply of processing crops.
Prices for garden truck are
high now and there Is every rea
son to believe they will stay up
or even go higher. This fact
makes the backyard garden even
For planting now, avoid the
early season varieties of veget
ables, Clark advises. However, he
says summer varieties of any of
the following vegetables will do
well if planted now; carrots
beets, corn, beans, tomatoes, pep
pers, eggplant, cabbage, celery,
chard, lettuce cucumbers, squash
vegetable crops planted now
will grow rapidly, Clark points
out, but as a result of excessive
spring rains it will be necessary
to watch for signs of low soil fer
tility. Yellowing and stunted
growth are good indicators, he
says. An application of nitrogen
fertilizer will correct this soil
condition. Continued watering of
vegetable crops is also important
as soon as dry weather starts,
Contented cows? Farmers and
ranchers who have used DDT fly
control sprays know the real
meaning of this expression. Horn
flies, the insect that put the orig
inal switch in the cow's tail, are
readily controlled by DDT sprays
It was not until DDT came Into
use that we found out just how
really expensive that switch was.
In tests which have been carried
on in Kansas, treated cows gain
ed 42 to 51 pounds and calves
gained 47 to 70 pounds more per
animal than untreated cows and
calves. In some states, dairy far
mers report 5 to 15 percent more
milk from cows after being treat
ed with DDT than they had be
fore when the cows were heavily
infested with flies.
Many Morrow county farmers
and ranchers are using DDT to
very good advantage in control
of flies. Flies have been showing
up during the past week and it is
now time to make the firsjjreat
ment. This should last about
three weeks at which time anoth
er spraying can be made. "Past
experience has shown that in nor
mal years two to three sprayings
kept the cattle free of flies dur
ing the entire season.
Eight pounds of 50 wettable
DDT to 100 gallons of water is
used for fly control. Cattle are
sprayed at the rate of about one
and one-half gallons per animal
This can also be used around
barns and other buildings where
Many farmers have purchased
high pressure sprayers during the
past two years and these should
be used to good advantage the
whole year through. Spraying for
tiles with DDT is the timely job
