Tuesday, Jun« IS, 1946 Five Steps In Corn Borer's Life Take a good look at the picture nbove. It Shows the Europe Corn Borer in all stages of development. At the left is a mass of about 30 newly-laid eggs. They are whitish in color. Next is an egg mass just ready to hatch. It is darker in color/ In the center is a full grown corn borer. Next is the corn borer pupa. This is the cocoon or resting stage. At extreme right is the full grown COMING FRIDAY Kent Motor Co. ALGONA, IOWA THE NEW '49 FORD female moth. All stages are pictured somewhat larger than normal size. Great numbers of these potential crop destroyers lurk in Iowa corn fields this spring. Surveys by Iowa State college and U. S. Department of Agriculture entomologists indicate that European corn borer infestation within the state has reached an all-time high. These borers went through last winter, housed comfortably in stalks lying in the fields, or in large weeds. Cold weather didn't kill them. Freezing won't hurt a corn borer. In the spring the borer goes into the pupa or cocoon stage. The female moth emerges about May 15, and begins to lay her eggs on the under side of corn leaves shortly thereafter.. When the borers hatch, they begin to feed on the corn stalk. Two most effective way t s to fight the corns borer are by. clean plowing and use of insecticides. Clean plowing'will turn all corn stalks under/ and 8 buried corn stalk means that the borers in it will die. By watching fields during the growing season, farmers can best tell' when •• to' use insecticides. Treat corn with DDT when the borer eggs start to hatch, advises l-tarold Gunderson, Iowa State . college entomologist.- Corn shbuld bd at least 20 to 30 inches tall when treatment is begun. 'A minimum of 50 egg masses per' 100 '•' corn plants should be observed, before. DDT treatment - is worthwhile, Gunderson says.. Three Hostesses At Ledyard WSCS Meeting, June 10 By Mrs. D. B.

Faster — easier to handle — easier to clean. You gsi both with TINMAN LOW-VACUUM M IL K E R Modern Research hcs proved 'l-.o superiority of LOW-VACUUM Milking — a principle pioneered by HINMAN! Actual dairy practice, too, has proved that the HINMAN LOW-VACUUM method takes all the milk . . . takes it faster . . . cr.d takes it safely! That's why owners of many of Arr.crica's leading Championship Herds use the Hinman. Valuable udders cannot be entrusted to a milker that is lers efficient. Low-Vacuum action is gentle to teats and udders, soothes the cow, and gets her complete cooperalicn.

With my old milking nuichine I was afraid of ruining the odder, because, her teats were black and blue after milking. The DeLaval magnetic milker instantly relieved this. I also have a couple of big-uddered cows that I couldn't get un* der with the old machine, but with my DeLaval it can be done easily. Cows unhandy to milk with other machines, have responded well to the DeLcjvd, «nd milk better than be;o-e. One of the biggest selling points on fill;; machine is hew C::s;- :t h on the cow's udder. .
