: DEVELOPMENTS [ FftOMDEVALOIS ••••••••*•••••••*••• As food becomes scarcer in the fall, rabbits may turn to trees. Depending on the types of tree areas you have, there are different control practices you can use. Rabbit populations could be reduced by heavy hunting during hunting season in open, rural areas. Property owners themselves could hunt and encourage friends and neighbors to hunt on their land. In addition to protecting trees, such hunting also provides a welcome dish on the dinner table. Hunting should be a yearly practice, as populations build up. Repellents have been used, but sometimes with less than satisfactory results. In smaller fruit orchards, including backyard fruit trees, a loosely fitted wire screen is the best bet. Place wire screening from the ground up to the scaffold branches, or at least two feet high. If placed lower than this, rabbits can get at branches when snow falls. If you prefer a repellent, you might try a mixture of one gallon alcohol to seven pounds of resin. For just a few trees, though, this doesn't pay. Trees to be most careful of include evergreens, broad-leaved fruit trees, and in particular, apple trees. Rabbits generally leave shade trees alone. MEMOS FROM MARGARET It seems so early to be thinking about Christmas, but, decorations are going up in all the towns, stores are loaded with gifts and Christmas trees are appearing in large quantities. Christmas wreaths and greens are more distinctive and glistening when decorated with realistic — but no melt "snow." To make this, combine packaged soap or detergent with a little warm water and beat with a rotary or electric mixer until the suds form a stiff meringue. Then use hands or a spoon to drift this mixture over the greens. Red berries or small Christmas ornaments may be imbedded while the suds-snow is still wet. It will dry overnight to provide eye appeal and enjoyment throughout the holidays. If you get your Christmas tree early, keep it fresh by recutting the trunk with a saw and place the trunk end in a bucket of hot water until ready to use. The water will cool and do add water- cool, not hot when necessary. The water will help to make the tree fire or flame proof, especially if the holder has a container which is kept full of water.
