'ACE 9ft OF INTEREST TO THE Jrunc Black And Red Raspberries After Last Frost It Ifn't too late to do some profitable pruning of both the red and black raspberry. The Job should be done after the last heavy frost of the year, says T. J. Maney, Iowa Stale College fruit specialist, but inany Iowa berry growers are late with the work. Since the raspberry, because of its high vitamin C contest, has he- come an Important Item In the "Food for Freedom" campaign, farmers and other berry growers need to get the most out of every Slant. Pruning tho red rospherry Is a simple matter since It. means heading back the canes which grew during the 1941 season to a height Of 3 or 4 feet. The only additional prounlng necessary Is to cut out *uiy of the fruit canes of 1041. These canes should be removed as soon us the fruit it. picked for they carry over disease Infections to supplement. In the case of late farrowed pigs, which cannot be marketed before the large,fall run of pigs, It will probably be better to let the pigs get more out of pasture and not full feed the protein supplement. Corn or wheat alone, plus pasture, will probably be the most eConoml cal ration for these pigs. Hog raisers can get a good growth on those pigs In this manner at lower cost and it would probably pay to carry them over Into January and market them at rather heavy weights, Qualfe believes. When hogs are moved out to pasture. It Is essential that they have plenty of water conveniently located. Shade is also Important, Qualfe says. younger canes Tho row may also be thinned down by removing all weak canes. The Ideal red raspberry patch has About 12 strong fruiting canes to •eacJi /our feet of row. If the patch . 3i8s not been kept in rows, simply ^remove (he weak canes. Since tho black raspberry plant ••consists of four or five branched Shoots produced during the last •.growing season the pruning here Is ~a different problem. The procedure Is to select three tjr four of the strongest shoots and head each lateral branch back to 10 or 12 inches. • .Fruiting canes, as with the red raspberry, should be removed Immediately after harvest. Tho plant Soon Time to Apply Fertilizer to Roses Hybrid roses should receive their first feeding of a complete fertilizer !:>. cnr!y May,, according to L. C. Grove, extension horticulturist at Iowa State College. Additional feedlnes should (lion h? given every 2 or 3 weeks thereafter until Aug. Moderately vigorous hybrid leas can take 2 level tablespoon fills of complete fertilizer. Sprinkle the fertilizer In a broad band, keeping awny from the stem at least 4 Inches. Scratch the fertilizer Into the soil and water well. Roses should lie watered heavily each week when regular applications of 'ertlllzer are made, Grove advises, j Leaf dlreases and worms can be controlled by lead arsenate and sulfur dust. Mix 1 part of Ethe ar- senatu with 9 parts sulfur. This lust can be blown on the roses villi (i dust gun quickly.

Wool Likely to Bring Good Price This Year Farmers had better be brushing up on their shearing techniques noon. That's the warning voiced by -both W. F. LeOrange, Iowa State College professor of animal husbandry and C. W. McDonald, agricultural extension sheep expert. May is the best time to shear ip in Iowa. Shearing in that gives; the gretest weight and _ combined with the best re- iults for tho sheep. Farmers should get a full price .for -wool this year. There is no .reason to sell at a sacrifice price Just to get a auick sale. There definitely is going to be a demand tor wool and farmers are advised I to sell at decent prices.' i Although wool Is expected to bring good prices there are certain ^radices which will raise or lower wool value. To ket the best results In shearing only one cut should be made. Cut deep enough to get a full fibre length and at- fate should be used to destroy plant lice. A bordeaux mixture will control the leaf disease? for the gardener who prefers to use a spray. The foliage of the bushes should be given an application at regular intervals of 7 to 10 days to keep pests nwuy since It Is more difficult to control pests after they become established, Grove says. ' Tips on Strawberries From State College ' Specialist Do not remove mulch from the itrawberry bed until as late as possible. Only when the plants are •bvlously suffering from the mulch hould It be raked Into the middle f the rows. And even then not all f the mulch should be raked off. eave some on the plants and allow hem to come up through the mulch. » • * Since 73 percent of the straw- erry's roots are In the uppar 3 nches ot the soil, irrigation ot trawberries is very profitable. tempt no second cuts.

A third spray Is applied Just after blossoming. Upper right-Does the heel fit? If It fits loosely or slips, the shoes are not right for your feet.

This increased .wear and tear plus the effect of war on the shoe market make shopping for shoes this year a distinct problem. Military needs for materials, labor and manufacturing facilities will make shoes more conservative In style. Leather and dye shortage will limit colors and shoe materials; It is predicted that by fall only black and browns will be a- j vailable. Men In the army camps will get- most of the leather for [shoes, thus leaving civilians with I more cloth uppers. ! In spite of these adjustments caused by the war emergency, Increased active duty on tho part of civilians will acll for durable, comfortable shoes.
