GE 5-2498 1960 Big Year In Scouting The year 1960 was one of the busiest and most successful for the Evergreen Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, it was re. ported today by Mr. Addison Shoudy, president of the coun- cil. Last year was the move- ment's 50th anniversary. Mr. Shoudy said that the Ev- ! ergreen Area Council now serves a total of 5,357 boys in Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and ~Exploring.

There is a net gain of 2 units over the previous year. Serving these units and the local council as adult volunteer leaders are 1,432 men. Together with the 407 women serving in Cub Scouting as Den Mothers, these persons represent an in- crease of 24 adult Scout leaders, making it possibly the largest body of volunteers any one or- ganization dedicated to the cause of youth.

COUNTY AGENT COMMENTS By Al Estep Do you remember back fat' enough to the time when in or- der to get milk you either had to keep a cow or buy from a neighbor. Actually this t{asn't been long as time is measured. Now, however, the marketing process of getting the quality milk from producer to consum- er is complicated es pointed out by Dr. Elmer Searls at the Ex- tension Winter Dairy Meeting. Not only tl~ dairyman but the consumer both have a big stake in this process. It was interest- ing to listen to Dr. Searls point out the spots along the way where efficiency and ways of doing the marketing have been changed over the years. This in- formation was passed on to dairymen producing about 1C )er cent of the milk in Snoho- mish County. Lime Soon Already many farmers are sending in soil to be tested to determine their fertilizer needs for the year ahead. This is good because then they can plan their program to follow in the spring. For those fields where lime would be needed for proper growth this is of special im- portance. Through research it has been shown that best re- suits for lime is obtained it The Arlington Times 3 Thursday, Feb. 9. 1961. HETTIE LOWE GUILD TO MEET FEB. 15 Hettie Lowe Guild will meet on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 8 p.m. at the home of Doris Fairbrook, 524 North Dunham. All women interested in the church are in- vited. the lime is spread and worked into the top soil at least two months prior to planting. This would mean that the .time is growing short to get the soil tested and results back to see if lime is needed. We have soil boxes in the office for those who wish to test their soil. If it is not convenient to drop into the office, write us a line and we will mail them to you. Water Many times water can be a limiting factor for growth or production for farm animals. Without adequate water the an. imals cannot either grow or produce and utilize the feed properly. In dairy cattle, water is important for the health and nutrition. Because milk is about 87 per cent water, a cow pro- ducing 50 pounds of milk per day needs about 44 pounds to replace that excreted in the milk. Cows may drink 3 to 4 pounds of water for each pound of milk produced or 3 to 4 pounds of water for each pound of dry matter. Lack of good clean water will cause a de- crease in milk production.
