Apple Measles) Investigators at West Virginia Experiment Station have come ta the conclusion that too much manganese in the soil is the raue of apple "measles." At least they were able; to produce the disease In snplt trees by adding manganese to the soiLand where apple orchard soils contain a dangerous amount of manganese the use of sufficient lrme to tie up the manganese tended to prevent the trouble. Symptoms of apple "measles" are irregular, dead, brown-colored pockets scattered throughout the outside bark. Infected young trees sometimes die in a short time, but mo of them linger for many years and fail to produce profitable crops of apples. j Gross-Bred Pigs j .

A definite and determined effort should be made by thoae directly responsible for the. development of sporting events, 'and the participants of athletic con tests, to keep sports above re proach. They will be the irst to suffer once the gamblers are able to fix athletic contests. It Is their responsibility to clean house and keep It clean. And It is Just i as important that it appear honest as well as actually be honest and unsullied. ; 2.
