The school boards have offered the position of janitor for another year to John Bosserman, Green pleasure, A OF 5rV Among old-fashioned flowers none is more popular than the Canterbury bells (Campanula me- 1 dium) and the foxgloves (digi-1 talis). As they are biennials, thev will not flower from seed until the second year, and after flowering and ripening seed usually die. However, their period of bloom is so bountiful and showy that most gardeners consider it ample re- ward for the time and effort ex pended upon them. The Canterbury bells are of two tvpes, the single. Campanula medium, with large bell-shaped flowers, and its variety, Campanula medium calycantliema, called the cilD-and-s.nirer dmlm-hnt-v hillc (with calyx colored like the cor olla forming a charming cup and saucer-shaped flower. Both types are equally lovely and are obtainable in white, pink, blue and lavender. They form branching plants two to four feet high and when covered witli flowers in May and June make a colorful display in the border. The flowers are unusually lasting, both in the garden and when used as cut flowers. There also is a strain of annual Canterbury bells which will flower ill less than six months from seed. The plants should be started in early spring for late summer flowering. Much of the beauty of the summer flower garden depends on the brilliant color of annuals. -Although all people enjoy perennials there always will be a need for annuals to blend in with more permanent plantings. Annuals offer a wide choice in color, form nnd period of bloom. They also offer quick effects as only one season is required for full development. Many annuals such as nasturtiums, larkspur, zinnias, asters, snapdragons, California poppies, and others are commonly known and grown. Many less common annuals, however, uch as salpiglossis, godetius, claras salpiglossis, verbenas, godetias, clarkia, and lavat-cra arc well suited to the garden.

Withholding water tends 10 harden a plant, but this can be carried to excess. Too severe hardening may couse undesirable results as is the case with cauliflower or celery that "bolt" or produce a seed stalk prematurely. The earlier peas are sown in the home garden the better. An early start enables the plants to make a good foliage growth before blossoming and making pods. Warmer temperatures cause later peas to reach maturity considerably faster than earlier sown seed, inducing blossoming and pod forming often before the plant itself is fully developed. It is undesirable to rely on one seeding for one's entire crop, however. Coast grown peas can be sown well into ine early summer. Lettuce, early cabbage, spinach, peas, green onions, beets, carrots, Swiss chard, sprouting broccoli, radis and kholrabi arc semi-hardy to hardy and can be started at this time of the year. Onion seeding is best delayed until the ground has warmed up in early April. Kholrabi makes a good substitute for turnips and is less subject to maggot attacks. Swiss chard, planted now, will continue to grow until this time next year. To grow radishes in the home garden free from maggots the bed of radishes is protected or covered by cheesecloth, fine wire or double mosquito bar to keep out the radish maggot fly. "Screen out the fly and you keep out the maggot" is the slogan. Grow the radishes in a small rectangular bed and cover it rather than grow them in a long uncovered row.

Gentlemen: In the spring of 1930 we bought a Model 15 Standard Gauge "Caterpillar" tractor for use in our hop fields at Corvallis, Ore. It has worked six full seasons of about ltn days each. We have used it to cultivate our yards and bale hops after harvest. The first winter it cleared land preparatory to setting out one of these yards. The repair costs on this tractor have been a little less than $95 for something like 10,000 hours of work, which we consider an excellent record. The only overhaul it needs for the coming year's work is' a valve grind. . . Yours truly, '. (Signed) C. W. BUTLER, Manager Scavcy Hopyards. Corvallis, Oregon You Need "Caterpillar" Quality.
