The U. S. Deparement of Agriculture is undertakhag this research as an emer- gency measure H. D. ore of the fruit and vegetable chemistry labra- tory at Los Angeles, will be in charge of the work at Wenatchee. Mr. Pore was loaned for the work by E. N. Chace who has charge of the labra'ory at Los Angeles. Mr. Chaee spent several days last week in Wenatchee and the Okanogan val- ley, looking over the territory. S. W. Griffin of the federal lab- ratory, Leo Antles of the Amel:ican Fruit Growers and Hnry Hobson of the North Central Washington Grow- er's association have been instrumen- tal in getting the work started. The N. C. W. Growers Association has long advocated the further develop- ment of apple by-products and are as- suming a part of the cost of the: work. Juices And Concentrates According to Mr. Pore, his first efforts will be directed toward the development of juices and concen- trates. As some preliminary work has already been done in this line, the work at Wenatchee can be started on a semi-commercial scale. According to Mr. Hobson, various firms and individuals in Wenatchee have indicated a willingness to aid in the work. NEW GRAVEL ON 2ND STREET Filling In Holes And Ruts. Grading To Be Done Soon Marshal Bruce Plemons and Roy Plemons have been busy the past three days spreading gravel on Sec- ond street in the block just south of the postoffice. This street was becom- ing rough and it was thought best to make repairs before more expensive work became necessary. The gTavel is being hauled from near the Bert Berry place on the Bar. It is planned to have this street graded and smoothed up as soon as the gravel coat has been applied. The street has more travel since the mov- ing of the postoffice. REBEKAH PRESIDENT WILL VISITLODGE Tuesday night, September 27, the Brewster Rebekah lodge will hold a special session in the lodge rooms.

Cook, state organizer, will be in Brewster next Monday evening, September 26, to try to organize alo- i cal branch of the United Producers l of Washington. The meeting will be held in the Odd Fellows hall at 8: p.m. Locals have already been organiz- ed in various counties, including Ok- anogan and the present merbership is over 300,000. The purpose is to create jobs for the unemployed by leasing of all idle industries and stor- ing of grains, vegetables, fruits, etc. There are no fees or duel CLIFFORD TELLS OF TRIP TO PENDLETON The following letter is from F. J. Clifford. Mr. and Mrs. Clifford and i daughter Olive visited friends in Brewster about a month ago. The two ladies made the trip to Pendle- ton by horse. Editor, Brewster Herald : Well, according to my promise there is due you and your readers an account of our trip to the .Pendleton Round-Up. Our trip from Brewstev to Grass Valley, Oregon was soon ac- complished. The nags were all O. K., complished. The nags were all O. K. horseback to cola'al Prince, Olive's horse. And what a time getting them shod. No .blacksmiths, or rather, horse sheers anywhere. A couple of far=n hands and I got the front shoes pegged on and the others at two dif- ferent townh. Greta and Olive stopped at the Ben Swigert horse ranch where Hoot Gibson once worked and also obtain- ed his movie horse From there they hit across the sheep-desert and had one hell of a hot and dusty ride. But Pendleton sure made them welcome and treated them and their horses royally. Olive rode in the dress parade but Greta wanted to see it (she has a weakness that way) so a deputy sheriff, nephew of sheriff Tom Gur- dane who captured Hickman, rode Pi- lot with the others. The round-up itself was good. So too was the treatment of the visiting puplic, no gouging allowed, nor car- nivals. But the attendance was not up to par so the show, it is report- ed, went in the hole considerably. Some people criticised the high price, same as last year, $150 and $2.50 I am told. But the show is fully worth it, too much so in the steer-roping. Four lost a horn each and two had broken legs. They've got to change this if it's to be featured. Greta and Olive shut their eyes when the steer was tripped and sent hurtling to the ground. Another thing they must change is the announcing. The white owners of relay strings were announced.

Important Road Meet All highway interest 'throughout the state will be centered in Spo-, kane this week. The meeting yester- day of several important committees, particularly the committee which will recommend new roads to be add- ed to the state system, will draw a considerable number in advance of the convention proper, as twenty-five communities sent in delegations pe- titioning for new projects. BRRWSTER, OKANOGAN COUNTY, WASHINGTON. i n WILL MOVE STORE STOCK NEXT SAT. L. J Orton is busy this week mak- ing alterations in the room formerly occupied by the Brewster postoffice.

Even better results have been ob- tained by Carl Allison on his place near Galbraith's orchard and on some of his trees only two light covers were used. Galbraith has been working on the electric trap idea for several years, realizing that lead and other spray combinations were failing to control moths satisfactorily and at the same time were too costly to put on and take off. This trap is grounded, either to a tree or to the ground, and the tin portion of the trap is connected with a member. Burial was in the Locust Grove cemetery. Pioneer Resident Anna Fries was born in Aalborg, Denmark, on June 25, 1863. Her par- ents were of I,utheran faith and she was confirmed in that church when 14 years of age. She became betroth- ed to U. E. Flqes who sailed to A- merica to find a home in the new world. Upon receiving word from Mr. Fries, she'left her old home in Den- mark on October 28, 1891 and made the long ocean crossing and traversed the continent to Sprague, Wash., where she married Mr. Fries on No- SEPTEMBER 23, 1932 NUMBER 19 I lull Ill n I I S n i WHEAT PRODUCER URGE SALE OF GRAIN TO CHINESE GOV'T. 300 DELEGATES PASS AUTHORIZING RESOLUTION RELIGIOUS DRAMA NEXT SUNDAY The bi-monthly services in the Church will be held next Sunday with a special sermon by the minister in the morning, on the topic "Arc We in a World Revolution?"

Word was rea(I from Senator Boraln urging such action aud promises of COOl)era- tion were also received from Sena- tin' Jones and Senator Dill of Wash- ington. A committee chosen, two from each state, hy the managers and di- rectors of the local cooperatives who were l)resent, brought in the follow- ing resolution : WHEREAS, it appears that a fur- ther sale of Northwest wheat to the Chinese National Government is now under consideration, approximating perhaps 25,00.0,000 bushels 'Resolution BE IT RESOLVED by this gather- ing of 300 delegates representing all the producers of the various .grain areas of the State of Orgon, Wash- ington, ldaho and western Montaria, that in our opinion such a sale of wheat is the only solution of our marketing problem in the Pacific Northwest at this time; that the sur- plus of the wheat of the 1932 crop amounts to approximat(.ly- 50,000,000 bushels; that in the present condition f the export '.narket, it is not pos- sible to sell this surplus at this time at a price that anywhere near ap- proximates the cost of production; I that the proposed sale to China will move a htrge percentage of our sur- plus wheat to the market and greatly relieve our marketing prohlems; that fit is our understanding that Recon- :struction Finance Corporation was authorized by Congress to provide :funds for the marketing of surplus grain am[ other agricultural commod- ities to foreign govermnnts where the power lines. The circuit is so set: up that no power is used until an in- sect flies between this cage and the main body of the trap when an in-! tense electric spark jumps across, e-I lectrocuting it. The trap is a baited trap, and should not bc eonfused l with the illuminated trap, used in some sections the last three years. Show Effectiveness That the traps are effective to a considerable degree is evidenced by a comparison of Galbraith and Allison's orchards to other orchards on the Bar where similar or better spray programs have been carried out. There are fewer wormy apples in the orchards that have been trapped than there are in untrapped orchards even where considerable more spray has been put on. Significant too is the scarcity of worms under the bark in Glabraith's orchard. Although the trees are very rough and there are literally hund- reds of hiding places on each tree for worms, it is difficult to find any in the trapped orchard. In an old coat stuck in the crotch of a tree several hundred feet from the nearest.trap which had been given a very sifiailar spray treatment 101 worms .were found. Galbraith and other sponsors of the traps are eager to have growers and horticulturists visit the two ten vember 22. The newlyweds immed- iately started for the Okanogan coun- try by team and wagon.

It promises to be a lively !scrap. One thing is certain. From this time on the ohl line Democrats will not be so thoroughly and completely sold on the direct primary in the future as in the past. Every two years the Democrats have either sat back and aided so- called ultra-progressive or liberal candidates, (a charitable way of say- ing radical.) to use the Republican :primaries. The Democrats have even assisted at times by using' the Repub- lican ballots on primary day them- selves.

The plan was put into practice last week- end when the first two volunteer watchmen went on duty Each night Marshal Plemons selects two :nero volunteers and they are on duty from midnight until (; o'clock in the morn- ing. There are sufficient voh|nteers on the list so that no man's turn wilt come so frequently that the duty will become burdcusome. It is planned to use this system until the latter part of October, or the first of Novem- ber. By that ti:ne a great many "knights of the road" wilt have departed for warmer climes.
