Phone 800, CONTAINS ONLY A PORTION OS THE NEWS AND ADVERTISING OR THE .CENTRALIA DAILY CHRONICLE NUMBER 119 CENTRALIA, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, SEPT. 27, 1935 e Advertiser If a Good k.7 you'll find it In the "Advertiser" In an effort to secure valuable oata for possible Improved strains of dairy caUle and a sound future breeding program, records of bulls and cows which have been kept by dairy herd improvement associa- tions in the state of Washington are being analyzed and will be or- eanlzed as a part of a nation- wide program suggested by Secre- tary of Agriculture Wallace. During the past 15 years, many Washington dairymen have been members.of herd Improvement as- sociations and there is considerable valuable information available in their record books which has never been organized. The study will be made of dairy herds which have been under test for at least eight years, according to Dr. otto J. Hill, extension dairyman of the Agricultural Extension Service of the state College of Washington. A complete analysis of the herd is being sought since testing was started. It is hoped to secure superior strains of cattle measured by consistent transmission of high production and type. It wiii be possible to graphically show the production records of each foundation cow, and of all her daughters ot which records have been kept. This data will be exam- ined by breeding experts at'Wash- ington, D. C., and each bull given a rating for his transmitting abil- ity in terms of milk, butterfat and average test. It will then be pos- sible for breeders of pure-breds to study the strong points of his breeding program, as well as to eliminate the bad points. The survey is entirely voluntary. It has been received enthusiastic- ally by herd owners wherever It has been tried, Dr. Hill says. The study emphasizes the importance of conitnuous testing over a period of many years. Tests ot but one or two years are not sufficient for careful analysis. Records of herds fcwhich have begfi''teitea only once' povery three or four yeftrs. are also inadequate. It is hoped, Dr. Hill says, that this type of analysis will emphasize the importance of con- tinuous herd testing.

WASHINGTON STATE COL- LEGE, Pullman, Sept. choice steers and yearlings held fully steady at Chicago during the second week of September, ing to the weekly market review issued through the state college agricultural extension service. There was a, broad demand for grass steers and yearlings for replace- ment plrpbses. Best medium weight choice steers sold for Cows, heifers and vealers were steady to strong. Hog prices advanced almost I September and reached a top of highest since August, 1929. The lamb market lost most of the advance made earlier in the month, and best lambs dropped back to at Chicago. There has been an active demand. Irom western range states for feeding lambs, and a large proportion, of the supply has been contracted. Demand continued active in the Boston wool market and prices were firm to slightly higher. Av- erage 12-months Texas wool moved at 74 cents to 76 cents, scoured basis, and strictiy combing, medium grade, Ohio fleeces sold Irom 32 cents to 33 cents in the grease. The season's sustained strength of tho egg and-poultry markets probably has been the means of increasing more farm incomes than any other market feature. Pro- duction has been good, feed costs steadily during the first half of 1 (Continued on Page Four) DREAM KITCHENS ET FREE BOOK It's no longer neces- sary to close your kilt-hen door when, un- expected guests arrive.

If a standard tree Is pur- chased and planted now, a small number of nuts may be expected in the third year. A large number, a basketful, in the fifth year and there will be more as the tree ages. If you have a small garden, don't try to grow a walnut tree, I Dairy Herd Improvement associa- te- in time it will produce a head tlon, will return tp his duties on Second place went to the Cen- traiia high school Smlth-Huifhes judging team at the Western Washington fair in Puyallup last week end in a contest drawing 43 schools, biggest number ever to enter the event. Mount Vernon finished first, Lyn- den third and Chehalis fourth. Coach Jesse Helm today reveal- ed this was the second time Cen- tralia lia.s landed runnerup. Tl.p local team took first in 1930, sec- ond in 1933 'and third last year among 31 teams.

Holsteins will be judg- ed at Carnation and Jerseys at Allen Brothers'. Smith-Hughes judges will go into their final and biggest event of the year, the Pacific Interna- tional, at Portland, the first week end in October. _----------o------------ TO RESUME DUTIES Fred L. Thompson, assistant Thurston county extension agent, in charge of the Thurston-Mason as large as ft maple tree. In a large garden a tree can be Introduced with advantage; a standard will look well on a lawn and provide shade in later years, under which the garden seat may be placed. The foliage Is aromatic and will keep away flics. There are several kinds of wal- nut, purchase your tree from a reliable nursery; make sure 'that it Is the large-fruiting variety and has been budded or grafted. Walnuts are easy to grow from seed and if a iarge fruiting variety is sown the nuts are usually sim- ilar to those of the parent. If the nuts are sown in good ground, a good position being near the man- ure stack, they will form large trees in four years, when they will come into bearing. Mako sure that the nuts you sow are not kiln-dried, which will have destroyed the germ and these will fail to germinate. Choose good healthy nuts and insert them where the tree Is to remain. The nut should not be shelled; simply place It two Inches deep, putting or about November first. At the present time he is conducting a survey sponsored by the depart- ment of agriculture securing data for possibly improved strains of dairy cattle. Clarence Wivell, dairyman from Shelton, and former cow tester In Thurston-Mason and Grays Har- bor counties, has been secured to 'carry on the testing work in these counties until Thompsons return. IN HOSPITAL AGAIN Eino Laakso, well known Win- lock poultryman, who is director of the Standard hatchery, is ser- iously ill In Seattle. Recently he underwent a major operation and had partially recovered, only to have to bo returned to the hos- pital.

POTATO PLAN DEAD Forced abandonment of the new potato control program appears likely.
