The Massey-Harris Self
Simplay stated, up to 90 of the
grain separation in the Massey
Harris combine is accounted for
in the cylinder concaves and
beaters. This is accepted as a
proper setting in any combine.
In 20bushel wheat this would re
duce to 2 bushels the grain to
be accounted for on the walkers
and screen in over one-half mile
In the Super 27 model M-H has
increased the straw walker length
to 10 feet 7 inches and the
width to 37 inches. This gives
"fishe backs" on screens and
sieves make- the M-H one of the
most efficient combines for hill
side operation. Engineered to
give perfect balance with the
grain tank three -fourths full, the
M-H is also the easiest and saf
est combine to perate on hillside
There was one machine in this
area last season that was so
equipped for extreme hillside op
eration. Now is the time, before
this land is fallowed, to inspect
this field for results. There is no
this combine the largest capacity more impartial way to show this
of any on wheels. This arrange- machine's ability to save grain, ,
ment or walkers plus increased fuel, time, labor and money.

significance, but are still eaten during -the ent 're Lenten period.

Timber tree nurseries are adding
nearly 20 million seedlings this
year to the growing stock of
Washington and Oregon forests.
A survey just completed by
American Forest Products Indus
tries Inc. shows eight major "tree
factories" in the two states are
turning out 19,380,000 little trees
this season to help nature restock
idle timberlands for future crops.
Last year the same nurseries
six in Washington and two in Or
egon, distributed 16,237,500 trees.
Leading in production both
years was the forest industries'
nursery at Nisqually, Wash.,
which distributed 9,054,000 trees
or nearly 56 percent of the two
state total in the 1950-51 plant
ing year. This year Nisqually has
a planned output of 7,000,000 of
which 2,750,000 are earmarked
Other forest nurseries tabulat
ed are operated by the two states
individually, the U. S. Forest Ser
vice, Sou conservation service
and the City of Seattle. Pine tree
production at Pullman and Bend
nurseries, now getting into stride
is included. Altogether the eight
timber nurseries in the nation's
two top timber states have a pro
duction capacity of 30,650,000
trees a year, the AFPI survey dis
closed. In releasing the figure the for
est industry sponsored organiza
tion pointed out that while most
woodlands restock themselves
naturally, planting is sometimes
necessary where all seefl sources
have been destroyed or depleted.
Last year in the United States
half a billion seedling trees were
planted on nearly a half million
acres of potentially productive
Lifting, bundling and shipping
of the new seedling crop are now
in full swing in Oregon and Wa
shington nurseries west of the
Cascades. Planting is proceeding
apace. Hand planting of the vast
array of little trees represents
more than 30,000 man-days of
labor in a season.
