Lower price» for pears, higher
price» for prunes, and a large surplus
of filberts were noted during the past
week, according to the weekly fruit
and nut crops review prepared by the
OSC Extension Service from USDA
reports and other data.
NW I’rocexMors Ooen On Bartlett».
Processors in Portland and Yakima
opened prices on Bartletts during the
second week of August. Prices being
offered were $50 a ton for No. l’s,
2% inches and larger, and for No. 2’«
$32.50 a ton.
Dried Prune Crop Harvest Start«
Harvest of California dried prune
crop got underway in most districts
of the state during the second week of
Producer price ideas were
generally reported strong and only a
few scattered crops have been con
tracted. Packers have been offering
to buy at firm prices or on open price
contracts with or without minimum
guarantees. Most packer offers, made
on a firm price or as guarantee, were
on a 10-cent basis for size 34/71’s.
This is one cent higher than last year’s
It equals the 1950
opening price, when California’s pro
duction was 9 per cent larger. Most
of Oregon’s Italian prunes grade out
in the basic size range of 34/71’s.
National Hour Cherry Crop Falls
The U. S. Crop Reporting Service
in its August 11 release estimated the
national sour cherry crop to be some
what smaller than expected in early
June and July. The August estimate
placed production at about 100,000
tons compared to same 140,000 tons
expected a month earlier. Most of
this reduction is due to heavy winds
and rain» in Michigan. That state’s
production was cut nearly one-third.
Estimates have also gone down in New
York, Wisconsin, and most other
Oregon’s sour cherry crop, now esti
mated at 2,600 tons, is down some 400
tons from the July 1 estimate.
Board Recommends 31% Surplus
The Filbert control board has rec
ommended that the salable percentage
for this year’s filbert crop be estab 1
lished by the secretary of the USDA
at 6(1 per cent and the surplus per- '

portion of Linn county people are
without library advantages as in the
state as a whole.
Six of every ten Linn county per
sons live in ureas without library
service as compared with about two '
in ten (22% to be exact) in Oregon.
The reason for Oregon's better li
brary coverage is found in the fact
that of the state's 36 counties 13 have .
county libraries. These are Clacka-
I mas, Clatsop, Deschutes, Klamath,
| Multnomah, Tillamook, Hood River,
Jackson, Josephine Lake, Malheur,
Umatilla and Wasco.
The first six of these have book-1
i mobiles. With such a mobile library I
! of a thousand or more volumes, n
county librarian can take books to all
parts of a county, making scheduled >
| stops in rural communities, neighbor
hood centers, or wherever several fam
ilies can come to a central point to
select books. Books are also taken
to rural schools and to town libraries.
County support thus provides li
brary service for rural people living
outside those cities and towns which
already have their own libraries.
Oregon, with such county library
systems in more than a third of its
counties compares favorably with the '
rest of the country. There are 735
county libraries in the 3070 counties
of the U.S.
In the state of Washington, 17 of
the 39 counties have county library
service, all started within the past
ten years; all but three have book
mobile«. some large counties more

QUESTION: Our wall« are finished in a
texture paint finish with a stippled surface.
We would like to remove this lor papering.
Can you tell the best way to go about it?
-J. J. B . Woodside, N. Y.
ANSWER: Unless covered with waterproof
paint, the surface can be well soaked, scraped
as nearly level as possible, and when it has
dried, sanded smooth. A power sanding ma
chine used on the dry wall will accomplish
the same purpose. In both cases, fill remaining
depressions with spackling compound to level
the wall (or paper.
QUESTION: My house, stuccoed with a
scratch coat and an outside coat of %-inch
white sand and cement, has broken at the
chimney and two corners. I’ve had this fixed
once, but it has broken off again. Can you
offer any solution?
-J N., Carbon. W. Va.
ANSWER: Stucco repairs often fail due to
application of stucco to oily or dirty surfaces.
Best way is to apply strips of metal lath to
the broken area, anchoring them to the ma
sonry, then applying new stucco to this lath.
QUESTION: I added a room to my brick
home, but could not match the shingle«. Could
you tell me where 1 can get a «tain to match
the asphalt shingles on the rest of the house?
—T. W., Salt Lake City, Utah
ANSWER: Neither water nor oil stains are
apt to penetrate waterproof asphalt shingles —
at least with any degree of permanence. Paint
that would adhere and color would also be
quite conspicuous — probably worse than no
stain at all.
QUESTION : Would painting the bare wood
with aluminum paint before I put up insula
tion improve its effectiveness?
-E. A. B.» Chicago, III
ANSWER. While aluminum paint does pro
vide a certain amount of heat-reflective qual
ity, it cannot be accurately measured when
so applied. Regular foil insulation leflects a
measurable 90% by tests, making further
