SNOW SURVEYS GREAT HELP TO IRRIGATIONS Irrigation farmers - of Oregon will have more information available this year on prospective water supplies than"ever before,' as a result of the beginning of cooperative snow survey work being conducted in the major irrigation sections of the state. Snow in the mountains constitutes a vast surface reservoir, ,or as some have termed it, "frozen assets," but lack of accurate information in the past has prevented detailed forecasts as to the water supplies available at any particular season. The division of irrigation of the federal bureau of agricultural engineering has now been made responsible for snow- surveys throughout the western country, and in Oregon is working in close cooperation with C. E. Stricklin. state engineer, and the Oregon State college experiment station. A series of district meetings to report on prospective water supplies for this year has just been held at Medford, Bend. Pendleton and Ontario. In charee of these meetings have been J. H. Ryan, as-isisftant state engineer, who has developed valuable records in some localities in the past seven years; M. R. Lewis, irrigation engineer of the state college staff, and R. A. Work, associate irrigation engineer and superintendent of the Medford branch station. In all instances reported on, irrigation water supplies are expected to be equal or better than last year. In some instances they are the best since the start of the dry cycle. In the Medford area, snow measurements in the Cascade rangy iiiunuit: a kuuii wan t 3ujjfij adequate to produce all crops. Soils are now well soaked. In the Upper Klamath basin, snow supplies are some 18 per cent greater than last year. In the Deschutes river valley there is the greatest amount of water in storage in the Ochoco reservoir since 1932 and an increase ' of about 80 per cent over last year. Snow depth and water content in the headwaters of the Deschutes are about the same as last year, though underground storage is believed to be improved. Cultivated lands in the region are in excellent condition as to moisture. Observers in the Umatilla-Walla Walla river headwaters find that there is considerably more snow than was the case last year, ranging up to 00 per cent increase. Cross Slope Rows Save Loss of Soil Salem; Ore., April 21. Plant in strips across a slope instead of up and down hill and save tremendously in soil and water, the U. S. deparment of agriculture advises. One experiment by the department showed that an up and down plot lost 650 times as much soil and 14 times as much water from July 7 to November 15 as two similar adjoining plots planted across the slopes. The former lot lost nearly -14 tons of soil per acre and 14 per cent of 18 inches of rainfall during the period. The two cross-slope plots lost only 43 pounds of soil per acre each and water run-off was only 1.1 per cent on one and .35 per cent on the other plot. Do not be too anxious to lift narcissus bulbs after they have finished flowering. They are better left undisturbed for three or Mour years. " CONSISTENTLY . .

A boy of 12 in one of tho counties of western Oregon is making his spending money growing parsley which he sells to butcher shops, hotels, and restaurants. There is a steady demand for this green garnish and the crop is one that-is produced over a long season. Spring set Cauliflower plants often run to seed prematurely before making a normal foliage growth because the plants are checked by cool temperatures and insufficient nitrification of the soil. Plants set out in tho summer for the fall crop rarely show this fault. " Strains of varieties of tomatoes sometimes show variation so that when one has chosen a variety there yet remains the question of the breeding and selection back of the strain. The standard varieties most widely planted in Oregon include Bonny Best, John Baer, Chalk's Jewel and Pritchard. Others used to a lessor extent are Earliana, Perfection, Marglobe and Indiana Baltimore the last being a canning variety in simthern Oregon. New hybrid strains of Sweet corn such as Golden Cross Bantam, the most important sweet corn introduction since Golden Bantam was introduced in 1902, are arousing interest among commercial growers. These inbred hybrids have a greater uniformity and yield more heavily because of this uniformity. They also have a smaller percentage of nubbin ears. The season of Golden Cross Bantam is about 8-10 days later than Golden Bantam. A number of early hybrids are being developed. Sewing Club Holds Meeting on Thursday Peoria.

John McLaren and Mrs. Charu Weber. , Sulfate of ammonia is not only a good vegetable fertilizer to help sumuiaic me growtn ot early gar-jden vegetables but it is also useful in killing moss on lawns. Sprinkle lightly, taking care that tne moss is completely covered with the fertilizer. In a very short time, especially if the application is made during a shower, the moss will have turned brown and the grass will be showing a decidedly invigorated growth and dark green color. Sometimes sulfate of ammonia is used in a standard solu tion of one ounce (full tablespoon-ful) to one gallon of water and as I such has a stimulating effect on 1 young plants or in fact any plants to which it is applied. Fertilize curb and shade trees and conifers regularly. They will show a marked improvement. D.-H.

The VOICE of UGLE ANN' 'WlwraL starring LIONEL GOOD LAWN HELD TO BE POSSIBILITY ABOUT ALL HOMES Contrary to general belief, almost anyone can have a beautiful, velvety green lawn. To be sure, certain fundamental principles must be followed, but they are few and very simple to grasp. If your lawn making efforts have not been crowned with success, try again this spring. If you follow the suggestions below carefully you will always have the kind of lawn you've always wanted: Soil: A sandy loa.m is ideal for a lawn but not a necessity. It is well, however, to approximate this I type of soil, which can be done by working in a little sand with sous which consist principally of clay, or working in a little clay with soils that are very sandy. Preparation of seed bed: Spade the area which is to be made into a lawn to the depth of six inches, provided that this is not deeper than the top soil covering the area. After spading work the soil with hoe and rake until it is finely pulverized. . Applying plant food: Apply four pounds of complete plant food per one hundred square feet evenly over the area and work it lightly into the top couple of inches of son. i nis is impunum iui iu-w suns contain, in an available form, the many food elements grass plants need for healthy growth. Seed: As in most things, cheap seed is false economy. Buy good seed suitable for your location. Consult your local seedsman. Remember that shady areas in your lawn must be seeded with shade-i tolerant grasses. Seeding: Apply the seed evenly. If you seed by hand, apply half of the seed lengthwise and the other half crosswise. After seeding, roll ' the area or tamp it with a wide board to assure good contact of the seed with the soil. Watering: Immediately after rolling, water the lawn thoroughly j using a very fine spray. Water 1 daily thereafter until the seeds Select your seeds this year as you would the food for your table. Diamond quality seeds in the Orange and Green seed boxes are packed with healthy seeds that have been tested for crop assurance. You'll llnd Ih Ortngt and Green ! boxes at your better neighborhood store. germinate. After the seeds germinate, water thoroughly once or twice weekly, as' needed. Clipping: Do not let the new lawn grow higher than three inches. Remove the clippings from the lawn. It is best to make your lawn as early in spring as possible, for then the grass has an opportunity to become established before the hot, trying months of summer. Forage Crop Study Centered at O.S.C. Supervision of federal forage crops and disease investigation in the Pacific northwest states will be centered at Oregon State college in charge of Harry A. Schoth, lor many years federal agronomist stationed there. Under a new organization setup recently announced E. V. Cordon, chief of the division of forage crops and diseases in the bureau of plant industry, Schoth will direct investigational work in various places throughout the northwestern states. Close cooperation will be maintained as in the past with the state college experiment stations and with soil conservation service. Improvement of dry land forage plums for the Inland Empire and similar areas of the west is a major, project being undertaken immediately. D. C. Smith, lormcr-ly on tlie O. S. C. staff, has been transferred to federal work and will carry on plant breeding activities at Pullman in connection with the dry land, forage development work. H. H. Kampton, assistant agronomist, has been added to the staff at Oregon State college. Continued studies in seed crop development will be carried on. Community Program Presented by PTA Tennessee.
