Usts Steffen Lactation Records Albert H. Steffen and Son of Mon- roe were listed by the Holstein- Friesian Association of America as one of four area dairies with new lactation averages for registered Holstein herds. The Steffens have 38 completed production records averaging 14,- 419 pounds of milk and 540 pounds of butterfat. Lactation averages are calculated on the commonly-employed two milkings a day, 305 day, mature equivalent basis. This provides a uniform basis for comparison and selection in registered Holstein breeding programs. Washington State University su- pervised the weighing and testing of production. Others in the area listed are Earle Bailey and Son of Snoho- mish, Henry F. Polinder of Lynden and Olaf Strand of Arlington. The oldest known map is one pre- pared 2,200 B.C. for taxing pur- poses, and is preserved now in the Istanbul Museum. Illllll l 1 Dr. E. C.
