A total of 5867 cows were tested on the Standard Plan, and these cows were in 131 herds'. The cows averaged 1046 pounds of milk and '40.9 pounds of butterfat. The herd of T. A. Rpeteisoen- der,, Everett, was high i~ the small herd division with an aver- age production of 1299 pounds of milk and 55.9 pounds of fat for the 23 cows. The 18 cow herd of W. l~. (Doug) Larson,'East Stan- wood, averaged 1229 pounds of milk and 55.1 pounds of fat. Oth- er herds in the small herd divi- sion were thos~ of William A. Toev~nen, E~erett, 16 cows which averaged 1079 pounds of milk and 53.3 pounds of ~at; John Kroeze, Arlington, 24 cows with an aver- age of 1080 pounds of milk and 52.2 pounds of fat; and William Roetcisoender, Everett, 20 cows which averaged 1644 pounds of milk and 52.0 pounds of ;fat. The herd of John Kempma, Granite Falls, 35 cows, with an average of 1431 pounds of milk and 53.5 pounds of fat, lead the herds in the herd sized group of 26 to 40 cows. Olaf Strand, Ar- lington, with 32 cows had an av- eraged of 1469 pounds of milk and 52.1 pounds of fat; Ted Ricci, Monroe, with 26 cows., had an average of 1563 pounds of milk and, 50.8 pounds of fat; Paulvin OLYMPIA Governor RoSellini.. got home last week from his European sa- fari, in which he vieAted Rome, Tel Aviv, Brussels, and Scandi- navian countries, and is checking up on what the boys did while he was away. Pro newsmen thought he did a good job of reporting his travels for one of the state's lead- ing metropolitan newspapers, and the stuff was a good deal more readable than the much earlier accounts' of adventures of Marco Polo. Some of the credit should go, no doubt, t~ Bob Reed, his press secr~ary, who did a work- manlike job in putting the facts into column style. One official the governor had no cause to worry about was Lieut. Gee. John A. Cherberg, who was acting governor while the big boss was away. Cherberg held no press conferences, fired no Republicans, raised no funds, and did not frighten anyone by intimating that he might call a • special session of the state legis- lature. He presided at some • meetings, attended some com- sion hearings, and took care of a few mandatory social ~unctions, but his conduct was impeccable. He called on the press services for some amiable chats, but he refrained ~ r o m pointing w i t h alarm, or viewing anything with. pride. In a nutshell, he did not rock the boat to create a single ripple. • Fund Disc}osure ~'hile the governor was'in Eur- ope there came disclosure here that state directors, commission- ers and other heads of state de- partments contribute to a DFT ' fund Which is available to the governor for expenses he cannot Barlond, Arlington, 37 cows with charge to ,the state.

In the herd size group of 41 to 60 cows, George Grimm, Arling- ton, 41 cows had an average of 963 pounds of milk and 47.0 pounds-of fat. Other herds in this group included those of EMng- son Bros., East S~anwood, 43 cows, with an average .of 1321 pounds of milk and 46.6 pounds of fat; Ste~fen Farm, Monroe, 45 cows, with an average milk of 1268 pounds and an average fat of 46.5 pounds; Svend Lars~n, Stanwcod, 50 cows which aver- aged 832 pounds of milk and 46.4 pounds of fat; and Fred Steen, Marysville, 42 cows which aver- aged 993 pounds of milk and 46.3 pounds of fat. In the large herd group, Edwin Stocker, Snohomish with a herd of 62 cows had an average of 1471 • pounds of milk and 48.4 pounds of fat. Harold Fjarlie, Eas~ Stan- wood, 80 cows, had .an average of 1532 pounds of milk and 48.1 pounds of fat; R.-E. Bartelheim- er, Snohomish, with 159 cows' had an average of 1214 pounds of milk and 47.4 pounds of fat; H. F, Boushay and Sons, Everett, 84 cows, had an average of 1037 pounds, of milk and 47.3 pounds of fat; Duane '.Kuhlman, Snoho- mish, 69 cows, had an average of 847 pounds of milk and 47.3 pounds of fat; and S. Sinnema, Stanwood, 73 cows had an aver- age of 1183 pounds Of milk ,and 47.0 pounds of fat. In the total production of ani- mals, based on the lactation period, and grouped according to ~ge, F_.arl Bailey and Son, ~Sno- homish, had a two-year old that gave 16~510 pounds of'milk and 581 pounds of fat. John Lovgreen, East ~tanw~d, had one that gave, 9,190 pounds of milk and 544 pounds of eat; and T. A. Roetcis- oender had one that gave 10,680 pounds of milk and 536 pound, of fat. The State Reformatory had one that gave 512 pounds of milk and Earl Bailey and Son had another that gave 13380 pound~ of milk wnd 50~ pounds of fat. In the three-year old group, Van Ess Br~., Monroe, had a cow that produced 16,320 pounds of milk amd 665 pounds of fat, and Steffen Farm had one that ,gave 15,060 pounds of milk and 573 pounds of fat. Dale TwinE, East Stanwood, had a cow in this * age group .that gave 8,010 pounds of milk and 531 pounds of fat, and Frank Bueler, Snohomish, had one that gave 530 pounds of faL Ray McCarLhy, Everett, had one' that gave 12,730 pounds of • milk and 517 pounds'of fat. In the four year old group, T. A. Roetetseender, had one that gave 13,200 pounds of milk and 629 pounds, of ' fat. William R. Williams, I~st" Sta~wood, had ~. cow that gave 13,700 pounds of milk and 582 pounds of fat, while .Olaf Strand had one that gave 17,860 podnds of milk and 580 pounds of fat..Lloyd Barker, Sno- homi~h, bad one"chat gave, 15,450 pounds of milk and 554 pounds about it. Pearson said that among other things, the directors are trying to pay off the governor's campaign deficit and build up a fund for the next political cam- paign. This disclosure highlights t h e fact that a major political cam- paign now is so expensive that it prices a great many potential candidates out of the running. Practical politicians put the cosf of a campaign ~or the United States Senate or governor at a minimum of $100,000. They sBy a figure of $150,000 is even more realistic where a candidate has to go through ~both a primary fight and then the general elec- tion push. There is now a law on the statute books requiring a report b:~ candidates of what they spent, but, no penalty for failing to re- port. Some report and some do not. There is no audit. A candi- date reports what seems ~,proper to him and that closes the mat- ter. Attempt to ~:equire reporting of expenditures and receipts, in de~ tail, and prescribing a penalty for failing to do so lost out in the 1957 legislature. A bill spon- sored by the Legislative Council got to second reading in the Senate but died in the rules com- mittee. There is apparently no present intent to revive it. Pleasure Boat Excise,Tax Pleasure boat operators are going to be downright unhappy. Recently they raised a tremen- dous' outcry of protest when it was disclosed that a subcommit- tee of the Legislative Courlcil pro- posed an excise tax on pleasure boats in lieu of the present prop- erty tax. NOw the same thing has been recommended to the Tax Advisory Council by its sub- committee on Taxation of .Prop- grty. The subcommittee on Taxation of Property says the recdmmend- alien was approved because of the present inequities and prob, lems involved in" taxing pleasure boats under an ad valorem tax. The subcommittee says it favors legislation that will also provide f o r valuing a n d depreciating boats in a manner similar to the state's motor vehicle excise tax procedure. It says that while the number of boats has grown sub- sta'ntially within the state during recent years, the assessment rols do not reflect the increased value, In 13 counties there are no water- craft assessments at all. It is estimated that a state excise tax of one per cent would yield more than $500,000 annually, to the state based on the present as- sessed boat valuation of $25,636,- 626. Rush To Get Signatures Desperate efforts are being made to put Initiative 202 on the November election ballot. T h e sponsors need 90,319 valid signs- milk and 635 pounds of fat, and Christofferson, Van Putten, Ar- lington had one that gave 17,620 ROUND-UP tures on petitions by July 3 and now s~y they have 63,000 of them. Latest development was endorsement of the initiative by William M. Allen, president of Boeing Airplane Company. Allen keynoted a meeting of business executives, the other day to launch a campaign to get 40,000 signatures before the deadline. This is the so-called "voluntary unionism" initiative, successor to Initiative 198, which failed at the last general election. The in- itiative would guarantee workers free choice as to whether they join unions or stay out. Political Letter Revived Governor Rosellifii's politcal op- ponents are reviving a letter he wrote to-a number of state em- ployees during his campaign for election which said in part "I said, and I repeat to you, that no one in our state departments who is qualified for the position he or she now holds, need to fear for his or her job when I take o~ice next year." In light of thb wholesale poli- tical turnover that since has oc- curred, one wag said: "No one needed to have any fear. If he were realistic, he should have known that he was going ou{ and the job would be safe in the hands "of a deserving part:? worker." Telephone Hearing Lengthy hearing before t h e state's Public Service Commis- sion on the Pacific Telephone Company request for rate in- creases'totaling $9,300,000 a year has been concluded. It covered 38 days of testimony and the transcript was 4968 pages long. Public Service Commission offi- cials saidthey would have to reach a decision and issue an orde~ in the case by July 14. Otherwise, they said, the full in- crease requested by the company would go into effect automatical- ly. Prosperity Through New Industry It.does not look as, though Gov- ernor Rosellini's plan to bring prosperity to Washington State through advent of new industries, broadening the tax base and solving the state's fiscal prob- lems, will bloom immediately. As an indication, H. Dewayne Kreager, director of the Cbm- merce Department, said in a re- c e n t department publication: "Dramatic additions to industrial development in the form of new or e x p a n d e d manufacturing plants, as a primary channel for putting people to work, will be slow in coming during the next few years." This 'is not essentially bad news to some in state government. For instance, Lloyd Andrews, state superintendent of public instruc- tion, has expressed the fear that bringing in new industries, would cause workers to flock here from other states and result in ,greatly expanded needs for schools., sew- age disposal facilities, housing and other services. Andrews. said it would be unlikely if the in- creased tax revenues from the new industries would pay for the additional services. The picture has .always been that the demand for services is ahead of revenue, said Andrews. Others have ex- pressed the same view. SO it Engineer Completes Maintenance Course Army Pet. Gary A. Armstrong, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert E. Armstrong, Rou~ 2, Monroe, recently completed the engineer equipment maintenance course at Fort Leonard Wood, Me. Armstrong er/tered ,the Army last January and received basic training .at Fort Ord, California-. He is a 1957 graduate of Mon- roe high school. Monroe Soldier Finishes Special Job Army Pet. Ray C.

If new industry is slow in coming, so will be the de- mands it brings. State Minerals To Be Studied A research project aimed at • greater use of the state's mineral resources' has been initiated by the Seate Department of Com- merce in cooperation with the State Division of Mines and Geol- ogy. The project was started to obtain more adequate informa- benefits for their survivors. Davis stressed that there is no deadline for those who file with- in'a year from the time they be- come disabled. The June 39, 1958 deadline applie~ only to those who have been disabled for a pro- longed period.
