TREAT NOW FOR GRUBS ON CATTLE Cattle on farms along the Ok- anogan River should be treated at this time for the control of cat- tle grubs, according to Vernon Chapman, County Agent. The time for treating is after the grubs have reached the backs of the cattle, and hav cut their breathing holes through the skin, since it is through these air holes that the poison is administered, At the higher levations. the cat- tle grubs may not reach this de- velopment stage for another 30 days or longer. Dust or spray containing roten- one can be applied to kill thse cattle grubs, which are the lar- va stage of the heel fly. "The Ex- tension Service recommends the use of rotenone powder mixed with sulphur and used dry, or a a wash or spray ,by the" addition of water. If it is impossible to 0b- rain rotenone powder, there are a number of commercial prepara- tions on the market which con- tin rotenone and which can be used. The important point is that they contain a sufficient amount of retenone to kill the grubs. Complete information on the life cycle and on the control meth- ods of the heel fly and cattle grubs can be obtained at the Ex- tension Office. Most dealers in Okanogan County have now ob- tained the supplies to be used in these treatments. Round Robin Letter Is Mailed To Invalid The Brewster Ladies Aid met Friday at the home of Mrs. R.

Program Being Practiced Farm Security Admnistratio Borrowers in Okanogan County; made outstanding records in 19- 44 food production, debt repay. ment and farm "improvement as revealed by the anntal review and summary of theprogram 'accord- ing to Arthur A.

Farm Security loans totaling $4.2.657 were made to 40 farm families including 25 supplemen- tal loans to families already on the program. Total repayments during the year amounted to $116,498 which were made by 211 farm families for an average repayment of $522 per family, Included in this amount are re- payments from 88 families who hae .repaid their indebtedness to the administration in full and hae ether become financially ndepend- en or who have attained: credit ratings making them eligibleS for - commercial credit. Repayments now total over 68 per cent of'all maturities due even though nUmy loans still have from 2 to;5;yra to run. That a sound live-at-hon pro gram is )acing practiced is evi- denced by the fact that homemak- ers averaged 481 q tmrts of fniit and vegetables canned as Well as providing most of the meat and dairy products used from the farm..This has meant an av.erage of 137 quarts per person which figure is well above the national standard for these items. Food produced on the farm :for he family averaged $395 in value and represented a cash saving which is attributed to. sound.plan- ning and effective follow through in food production activities.
