Monroe R.eally Glen Guptdl Harold Fankhauser clams and having a good time. Now, back on the job trying to get some of the work done that got stacked during the vacation. While down in Grays Harbor county I spent one morning visiting a eras. berry grower. He was telling me the trouble the scare caused them last Fall. He mentioned that they only sold 25% of normal during the holiday season. On his place, even with the help from the U. S. Government, this meant a differ- ence of $4000 on his eight acres which is about the average size of bog in that area. This, he feels, isn't the worst because of the loss, they will suffer in future years be- cause of this scare. Mter hearing of all the precautions the cranberry growers are taking we can be sure of what we buy as customers. DRY WEATHER This warm dry Weather is good for making hay and just plain liv- ing, but certainly is causing the pastures to dry. Of course, many farmers are using sprinkler irri- gation during the dry season to make sure they have enough feed for their cattle. The question is just how much does this pay and what is the increased yield. This can only be answered in general as every place will vary accord- ing to land conditions and what is growing. Irrigation will probably pay if there is a need for more forage than is norrrlally produced during the dry period. The species of grass and clovers that may up the stand is very important. If it is old sod usually irrigation will not pay because the native grasses do not respond in sufficient quan- tity to pay. If the desirable plants are grow- ing and they are properly fertilized then additional plant growth should result from irrigation. COW CUD I have been around cattle most of rriy life except for some three years in the Navy and I ran into something the other day that was unusual for me. I was out on a farm and in the spot where the cows bed down at night there were a lot of what looked like cuds that had been spit out by a cow. I didn't know what caused this and/ or what the trouble might be so went to a veterinarian for help. He suspected the trouble right away. He told me that when this happens the cow is sick and in- stead of it being a cud was actual- ly more than that, and was throw- ing up from the rumen. This, he explained, is usually caused by a wire in the ruses that gets in the folds and causes an irritation. This isn't very common the Vet told hie, but does happen and is some- thing for a Vet to correct. This is one of the reasons that county agent work is interesting; always something different coming up. ROOT MAGGOTS There are many types of root maggots that affect the garden crops. The one affecting radishes showed up in our garden the other day causing a complete loss of the spring planting. The root maggots also affect cabbage, onions, turnips and other crops. The adult fly looks much like the common house fly except being smaller. They lay their eggs at ground level and move down to do their damage on the roots. The best prevention is using aidrin or lindane prior to planting and treatment later is. al- most of no benefit. The radishes have little worm holes all through them and are, of course, not fit for eating. On cabbages they af- .feet the roots and on a warm day the plants will wilt and sometimes die. eated in the midst of the down- town section of Los Angeles and has facilities for handling a very large membership. The church supports missions in most parts of the world as its prin- cipal activity in Christian work, in addition to its ministration to the religious needs of the Los An. geles community. Rev. Dingfield asked to be re- membered to his many friends in this area and said that he and iris family plan a visit to the north- west next summer. Acceptance Ceremonies The acceptance ceremonies of course were held at the gigantic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. We went out there in 95 degree temperature to observe the show with Lee Kirby and companion from Edmonds. Our tickets entitled us to seats in the reserved section of the coliseum where we relaxed in the afternoon sun and watched the proceedings. We noted that lavish prepara- tions had been provided for the press at tables on each side of the raised rostrum, and told our com- panions that this was too much to resist. We left them and hopped the fence barricading the press sec- tion wearing our press badge for protection. We were seated at a table just a short way from where the ad- dresses were to be made. a ring- side seat so-to-speak. While like the rest of the world we did a heap of, listening, we also took many feet of color movies of the scene. The trip back to the bore.1 was made in the company of Arthur Heaps of Vancouver, B. C. who conducts a nation.wide program over a Canadian radio network. His observations of the convention and Americans in general were in- teresting. He doesn't think that these con- ventions are very "democratic" as compared to the Canadian system of elections, but said the Canadi- ans are most interested in the United States political picture any- way, and that was why he was in Los Angeles. SMOG. Before drawing the curtain on this adventure perhaps some addi- tional comment should be made about Los Angeles. They really DO have smog and it DOES make the eyes water, and there seems to be little that can be done about it. The Los Angeles transit system is one of the best we have ever seen with close scheduling of ve- hicles and courteous and helpful drivers. The freeways--well, we wonder what L.A. could have been like before them. To the uninitiated, they're a frightening experience, but one gets used to noise, speed and changing lanes. And in conclusion, as always, the Skykomish Valley is nice to come home to. Race Assn.
