The infesta- tions are so heavy in some ani- mals as to cause much loss of flesh and death of some animals may result unless control meas- ures are applied soon. The control of cattle lice is very simple through the use of a spray, dip or powder which contains ro- tenone in sufficient quantities. If a dipping vat is not available, an orchard sprayer is very satisfctory in making the treatment. If the weather is too cold for a wet treatment, excellent results can be obtained by working a roten- one dust into the hair over all parts of the.body_which are in- fested with lice. Two applications for control must be made 17 to 21 days apart to kill any new lice which hatched from eggs present at the time of the first treatment. Dual Purpose Treatnnt Insecticides used to kill lice are the same as those USed for cattle grub control. Treatments for lice made at this time at the lower ele- vations wil als oserve o kill a por- tion of the grubs present. At the higher elevations, however, more .effective eoirol of cattle grubs itt b-obtained late in February and march It is new.recommend- ed that herds heavly:infested with ice be permitted to remain in- fested so that a combination treatment can be made. The lice should be killed now and the grub treatment made later Most dealers in Okanogan Coun- ty have the necessary supplies to be used for these treatments. Complete instructions on the treatment of. these insects are ava.ilable at the County Extension service ffiee ifi !armgn. WANTS DIVORCE able salary iacreases for employ- ees. Fifteen to 20 per cnt for those being paid nder $200 and five per cent for those receiving the highest salaries. From present indications a firm hand will be held by the Gov- ernor on the purse strings of the state, a wise and popular move with the voters just at this time when such heavy demands are be- ing made by the federal govern- ment in meeting costs of the war.'
