For the better and safer world
in which we live today, man
kind must give great credit to
Louis Pasteur. French father oi
bacteriology, born on Dee. 27.
1822. Having studied in Paris,
he investigated the process of
fermentation and his work re
sulted in great improvements
in the French liquor industry.
He discovered the method of
arresting fermentation in milk
called after him pasteurization.
Why we say

satisfied with (he newer pasture
mixtures of grasses and legumes
now being recommended. During
the past spring, Harold seeded
approximately forty acres of Ran.
ger Alfalfa, one of the first seed
ings of that variety in this coun
ty with alta fescue and tall mea
dow oat grass. A good stand was
established, in fact two light
cuttings of hay were taken from
the new seeding. But the out
standing results were obtained
from grazing this fall. The grass
and alfalfa provided pasture for
livestock with calves at weaning
time making gains instead of the
usual loss.
Man farmejs in Morrow county
are finding that a mixture of
grass with their alfalfa seeding
not only keeps undesirable an
nuals such as cheat from becom
ing a nuisance, prolonging the
life of the seeding, but that this
mixture also provides a very fine
pasture in the fall.
For those liveslockmen who
have not yet sprayed their cattle
for lice it is suggested that it be
done as soon as possible. Spray
ing should be done before lice
begin to cause unthriftiness in
animals. Spraying should be
done with at least a 250 lb. pres
sure, 400 lbs. being more satis
factory. Twelve pounds of 50 per
cent wettable DDT per 100 gallons
of water is now recommended.
This should be applied at the rate
of one and one half gallon per
animal. In winter weather spray
ing should be done early in the
day in order that cattle can be
dry before evening.
1 . When the operator says "thank you" as
she handles your call, she is of course following
a telephone tradition for courtesy. And every
day, up and down the Coast, those words are
repeated mi. re than four million times by local
and long distance operators who arc as always
doing everything they can to give prompt,
cheerful service.

2. These are busy days in the West's tele
phone offices . . . more equipment is handling
more calls, twenty million of them each day. And
service generally is better, you'll notice. There's
relatively little wait for the dial tone. Operators
are able to answer more promptly in most places.
Long distance calls usually go through in two
minutes or less.
4. As 1948 ends, Pacific
Telephone adds another "thank
you for your patronage. We
deeply appreciate the under
standing of those waiting for
service. We are doing our best
to provide the telephones the
West needs and to make your
telephone increasingly valu
able to you.
3. He's "dropping a line" for another new
telephone . . . since V-J Day more than a million
have been added on the Coast. We're putting in
still more thousands every week. And telephone
people . . . operators, installers, service represen
tatives ... all are doing their level best to welcome
our new customers in their usual friendly and
Selpful way.
