Health Group to Pick-Up Trash, 'Cans in Hope Campaign Against ^ Mosquitoes to Be Carried Out March 17-20 Mosquitoes and spring cleaning may ^nol seem to have any relationship, bu U does exist. Spring is here, and mosquitoes will soon be breeding. To carry out a mosquito control program without a preliminary spring clean-up of the winter's accumulation of tin- cans and other trash is to admit Juefcat before starling. If mosquito breeding starts and there are numerous tin-cans, old barrels, and other artificial water containers •scattered around the homes vacant lots, and alleys, the first brood -?i , mos q.u'toes will be hatched and - . before any reasonable number of mosquito conlrol men could pos sibly find Ihe cans and oil or carry them off. J The first brood is always cxtra- aad,j£>,wj-y,itiany .egcape dty- ^cpvcry and survive to hatch as"flying, singing, biting mosquitoes, the whole program is a failure. Not only is tho town full -of mosquitoes, but their very numbers make certain that all water, from a lake to a mud- hole will have eggs laid in it and make r so much work that the mosquito fighters cannot keep up. To the first brood are added the survivors of the succeeding broods which hatch about every seven days until the town is swarming with the posts. 1 ,•• To get the jump on the mosquitoes . •*very citizen of Ho ' please?"

Before the day of national dvertismg there were about 300 lakes of automobiles, each manufac- ui-ed by a different company. But dverlismg within a generation cut ic 300 lo about 30, and 90 per cent all cars were manufactured by ree companies. And in this genera°n American automobiles became Total of 9 Producers in Midway Field Frankel Well Making 368 Barrels; Prepare for Test in Hempstead By Spccinl Correspondent STAMPS - Nine producers ore now flowing m the new Midway field of Lafayette county, and a 10th is due in some time next week. The two most recent completions very citizen of Hope is asked to < known a* the cheapest and best clean up all tin-cans, old barrels, old " " tires, and any other unwanted water catchers on his premise!!. Dr. Don Smith, city health officer, has directed Eugene Cox, John New/•berry and Walter Hardy lo assist in in '"story. the world. And the same thing happened in every field of manufacluring, sales, and consumer demand. It never happened any other time tills spring cleaning. From Tuesday, March 17 through Friday March 20, these mosquito control officials will pick up tin cans and trash that are placed near the street where Iho men can remove them to the truck. To make sure lhal all Ihe tin-cans and other artificial water containers arc picked up, Boy Scouts, under the direction of Clyde Coffee, Troop No. 62, S. E. McGregor, troup No. 58, and . Jlendrix Spraggins, troup No. 66, will devote their evenings and Saturdays to inspection of premises and lo collection of tin cans from vacanl lots and public properly. This time will count toward service bands. This clean-up campaign is no substitute for the usual city (rash collection. Tho campaign is aimed at Uie over-looked or forgotten water-containers. The Local Health Departmonl is cooperating with Dr. Smith and the field .workers through the services of Dr. 'Edward Budd, medical director, Creo Jones, sanitarian and Allen Mayfield, malarua control worker. Their services arc not confined to Hope, but arc county-wide. The local health department stands ready lo extend its scr- ,H>ices or advice at any time. It never happened anywhere in the world but in America. This is what we have—as Americans. This is what we have lo lose by listening to weasel-eyed economic fifth columnists who are trying to tear down all that the hard-headed business men, skilled workers, and able salesmen, of America hiwo given to Ihcir country ami its people * * * Consumers Union •• proposes as u substitule for advertising—which puts brands before the people and lets the people decide for themselves—a system in which "experts" would appraise all brands and determine which arc best for the people. Who arc these "experts"? Who are the persons that, so Con- arlificial sumers Union says, will determine which are the best automobiles, the best radios, the best washing-machines, the best furniture, and so on? Well, Consumers Union lists an "advisory commillec" of 12 persons—anc all of Ihem are professors! Professors! No class is so ignorant of all things except books, as professors. I assume the members of Consumers Union's advisory committee are individually acting in good faith. But Ihis does nol clear Ihem of Ihe obvious charge that just such organizations as theirs proposes to be pavud the way for the collapse of democracy in Europe, and built up the bureaucratic edifice that eventually became Dictatorship. For as you know, in Europe these professors' "advisory committees" as fast as they became national in scope were incorporated into government— and pretty soon the people, instead of picking their own goods, had government picking their goods for them. But adverlising lels the people choose. Senator Lloyd Spencer sent The j It is the democratic way of life-as for this week arc Bamsdall Oil Com- panys Bond No. 2 SE SW of section ll-].>-24 and the Beck No. 1 NE NW of section 14-15-24.

The next completion duo is the company's Bond No. 4 section 11-15-24 which has been shut down because of high water. Production pipe will be set, since porosity was topped at 6345 feet.

The latest gauge on Ihe Frankel tests which is of most interest to Hempstead county citizens, is 368 barrels through a 16/64 inch choke in 24 hours Tubing pressure is 150 pounds and packer was set at 64GO feet. Also of interest to Hempstead is the fact thai E. G. Bradham is moving in to begin operations at the Hy- grado Oil Company's Ford- No 1 in section 32-14-23, Hempstead counly Tho test will be watched with interest as its successful completion will mean much drilling aclivily on this Hempstead side of the line. Three miles east of Stamps in the Bucknor field, Bradham drilled below 3000 feet at his Sue Keys test m section 7-16-22 and six miles south of the McKamie field, McAlester Fuel Oil company drilled below 8870 feel at the Jeffus No. 1 wildcat in section 419-23. Its successful completion will open an entirely new territory for -tafayette county. The McKamio field will probably resume its drilling activity now that the distillate fields of this section have Jcen ordered opened.

P ' Leaf Curl Spray Material Waste Unless Trees ore Sprayed Before Buds Swell Spraying for control of peach leaf curl after buds swell is usually a waste of material, says Oliver L Adams, county agent. Peach leaf curl, the cause of serious leaf fall and wcaking of peach trees, is one of the easiest of all plant disease spores arc on the surface of buds and twigs, and infection takes place as the buds swell and open. Ulie spray commonly recommended hu said, is the ordinary 4-4-50 Bordeaux, to which is generally added stock solution of lubricating oil emulsion for control of the scale insect Since supplies of copper sulphate or bluestone for Bordeaux mivture will probabl ybecome scarcer as the war progresses, growers may have to c- turn to winter strength applications of. commercial lime sulphur, which was used for both leal curl and scale control until recent years. This strength, Oliver L. Adams said, is obtained by adding GU gallons of commercial lime sulphur to 50 gallons of water. In using the spray, it should be applied before the buds swell, and care must be used to completely cover ^tfS&S£^jg^®&sr*' S^T—MffU?

Many who hiterto were lukewarm oday warn hotly that there remains o us no margin of safety in time or pace. of whether freezing tlie buds. Regardless killed the fruit buds, the spray'should be applied, because this year's leaves produce the food and store it in the wood to form next year's fruit buds Failure lo hold leaves Ihis year will cause a low set of fruil nexty ear, and what fruit is set will bo poorly nur- shed and of poor quality ,the agent warned. Also, leaf loss weakens the ree and may result in failure to jroperly mature wood which makes it nore subject to winter injury. The late peaches are already in Jloom in Hempstead county. The ;arly peaches in many cases have buds that have not swollen and the ibove spray could easily be applied They declare that if the Nazis and apanese are nol slopped where Ihey re, tho oceans not kept safe for our i-oops and supplies, then the war may e dragged out ruinously and per- aps even lost. This grim view is eld by well-informed people, who "Never since the Revolution was it so true as today that 'if we don't all hang together, we 'H aU hang aratcly .". They mean "hanging together" in u imlilary sense. Belief increases that he armies, navies and air forces of the United Nations and the United Mates are less united than they should be. To some observers their efforts seem diffused by an effort to win the way by committees, which history j since ancient Greece, proves is sui cidal. Nazis Coordinate; United Nations Don't The United Nations have in Wash ngton separate committees to con- Vr<>! munitions, shipping an d Ftu • iast strategy. The last has eight members. London has more committees controlling European, Near Eastern and Middle Eastern strategy. General Wavcll has a near-committee in Java controlling four armies and foin fleets. And we, although practically everj victory in this war has been won by Auzi land, sea and air forces perfectly co-ordinated under the Wehrmacht's single command, still have two i-om- inands, almost three or four, (counting autonomous air forces) not coordinated but "co-operating" under another committee of eight.
