O. A. C. Endorses Spray
Formula for "Brown Rot"
Given by Federal Experts
Last Saturday the Capital Journal
printed the C. S. government's hulletiii
on spraying for ' ' brown rot " of prunes
and cherries, with the formula therefor.
This is reprinted as follows:
In spraviiif, self-boiled lime-sulphur
8-8-50 and Bordeaux mixture 4 4-50
have both given good results,.! but the
former has seemed somewhat more sat
isfactory. Two pounds of resin-'f ishoil
soap should be used to each 50 gallons
of the mixture. Where this soap can
not be readily obtained, it may be made
up as follows:
Potash lye, such as is sold for
washing purposes ...... 1 pound
Fishoil 1 pint
Water 5 gallons
"The resiii is dissolved in tho oil by

therefore no results were omaincn on
the effect of spraving upon the bios-
som infections. The nrnwn-rot at the
canneries and in storage, however, wai
greatly reduced by late applications of
Bordeaux mixture and self-boiled lime
sulphur. With the Royal Anne cherries
better results were secured with Bor
deaux mixture than with the self-boiled
"It seems phnbablo that a treatment
for cherries similar to that outlined !r
prunes would give satisfactory control
of both the blossom infection nnd the
later brown-rut attacks on the fruit. ' '
Several local fruitgrower" called at.
the f'npital Journal office this week
and stilted that they were ut a loss to
know what to do, since the formula
recommended by the government nnd
that of the Oregon Agricultural col
lege differed in some material respects
To clear this point the Capital Journal
put the question up to the school of
agriculture and experiment station at
the O. A. C. receiving the following
Oregon Agricultural College,
March IB, lltlrt.
Mr. Hiss. If. Fisher,
, Tim Capital Journal,
I would say that although the recom
mendations Issued in tho clipping which
you inclosed in your letter of March
13 are not like those which were issued
in previous publications from the col
lege, they are in accord with the recom
mendations which are being issued in a
sprnying circular which is now on the
press, I would say that this college has
never tested out tho use of self -boiled
lime sulphur with sticker and did not
recommend self boiled limo sulphur
alone, nccause of its poor adhering
finalities. If tho government tests re
port success with this material with
sticker added, I would be inclined to
consider it 3 safe spray material to use.
Although I believe thnt it would be
more effective during the warmer parts

of the season than eany in the spring.
If the ordinary lime-sulphur is used
as a substitute for Bordeaux, or self
boiled lime sulfur, it should bo used,
after blossoming time, very weak, about
1 to 50, and should not be combined
with a sticker because of the chemical
changes which will occur. There is a
slight tendency to spray burn where
lime sulfur is used in strengths ordinar
ily recommended for tipple scab, but is
recommended in the strength which )
have mentioned for use on prunes in the
eastern Cnitcil States.
The growers will be, 1 think, entirely
sa'fe in adopting the recommendation's
of the government. This is certainly
true if they can use Bordeaux mixture.
I trust that this will explain as clearly
as possible our point of view in the

As Notaries Public
As considerable confusion lias arisen
j " article .wind, recently ap
1 " '.' s newspapers concern
mg the legality of office, holders act
ing as notaries public Governor Witnv-
combe wishes to call attention to the
tacts .is they actually exist.
The article evidently intended to enn
vev the information that office holders
may act as notaries, but for some un
known reason many people have mis
construed the article and have taken
it to mean th.it office holders cannot
properly net as notaries public.
This, however, is not the case. The
fact, is that any one otherwise properly
qualified umy ,c n notary regardless of
whether he is a federal, 'state or muni-
cipil otticinl or employee.
