Orchards Imperiled By New Bug Dangers Dr. Graham Describes Planned Changes in Spray Program Fruit growers will have to revise their spray schedules this year to combat two insects that have become a serious threat to apple crops, according to Dr. Castillo Graham, field entomologist for the University of Maryland, who is stationed at the Hancock fruit laboratory.- Dr. Graham said dial the damage was done last year by the European red mite and the red banded loaf roller, and outlined a spray program for adequate control. "The red banded leaf roller is to he controlled by the addition of four pounds of lead arsenate to the petal fall spray and three pounds of the same material to the first two cover sprays," Dr. Graham said. "The petal fall spray should also contain a fungicide, and the first two cover sprays should contain both an insecticide and a fungicide." Dr. Graham pointed out that there are indications that the increase in the pest may not be caused by DDT's destruction of its natural enemies, as popularly believed. It had not been causing much damage in Maryland before 1946, but resulted in as much as 15 per cent loss in some orchards last year. DDT, however, is blamed for the sudden appearance of the European red mite. Planned changes include the addition of one and a quarter pounds of DN-1H to 100 gallons of cover spray, or the use of one pound of Zanthone (Ceni- cide). The DN-111 may be used with Fermate or Karbam, but is not recommended with Bordeaux mixture, lime; or sulfur. .Zanthone may be used with any of these materials except sulfur. .The entomologist said 19-17 spray calendars are now available, and warned against relying on 194G schedules.

Additional Air Routes Are Recommended New Carriers Would Operate Passenger Planes in Mid-Atlantic Washington, March 11 '(/P) — Civil Aeronautics Board examiners recommended today that five new air carriers be allowed to operate passenger service in the Middle- Atlantic area. They also recommended additional routes or stops for five air lines already operating in the area. These recommendations were made by examiners Charles J. Frederick and Joseph L. Fitzmaurice in a consolidated route- application proceeding known as "the Middle-Atlantic area case." The applications included air service in New York, New jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware. Maryland, the District of Columbia, and adjoining states. All American Aviation of Wilmington, Del., which for years has been tbe nation's only airmail pickup operator, was recommended for its first passenger service on a route from New York to Cleveland, and from Pittsburgh to Buffalo, for a three year period. However, the examiners said there would be no recommendations for air pickup routes. Other new carriers in the passenger field recommended for routes, were: Atlantic Airlines, Inc., headed by S. J. Solomon of Washington, D. C.. one-time president of Northeast Airlines, to operate for a period of five years between Newark, N". J., and Washington, between Atlantic City and Pittsburgh, and between Newark and Pittsburgh. Iroquois Airlines, Inc., to operate three years between Albany and Niagara Falls. N.

Ot this number about one-third atioii. The exams, held each month, are in charge of William supervisor of high C. Diehl, schools. Another report showed there are S7 veterans now attending city and county public "high schools and that 4S will graduate not later than June of this year. Ten have already met all requirements for graduation. A study of school buses showing number of years of operation and condition was presented to the board.' It showed about one fourth are 1940 models or over while another one fourth have been in use ten years or more. Consideration will be given to the nee'' to purchase new buses and possibly adding new bus routes or changes in them, effective in September, for the 1947-19-18 school year. Not much new equipment could be secured during the war. Another report, of maintenance work during February, was submitted. A number of repairs were made at twenty schools, the largest being installing the cafeteria at Surrey School. Surgeon Reports .Improved Method Of Repairing Important Arteries Sail Francisco, March 11 (/P)— An improved method of repairing major arteries damaged by gunshot wounds, knives, glass or smashups was reported today by Dr. Norman E. Freeman, vascular surgeon of the University of California Medical School. The outstanding feature of Dr. Freeman's technique is the use of crosswise stitching in sewing the artery together after the damaged section has been removed. The operation is used on patients who have recovered partially from the initial injury and face the prospect of a handicap because of damaged circulation. The stitches run crosswise of the artery instead of longitudinally, as in most such operations. This results in less constriction of the blood vessel after healing and less pain to the patient when he exercises the affected part, Dr. Freeman said. He reported his work in the Annals of Surgery, a medical publication. Among his IS operations of this kind was one involving the abdominal aorta, a main branch of the great artery leading from the heart. This was described as the second successful operation of its kind on record. A major break in the abdominal aorta usually results in bleeding to death. Two kinds of handicaps may result from arterial wounds, in one instance the mangled artery and a nearby broken, vein may' start growing together and short-circuit some of the blood. In the other the arterial break may heal but weakness somewhere along the arterial wall may cause it to bulge out like a defective inner tube. Blood then dots in the bulge, forming a tumor-like mass which restricts the circulation. Maryland Legislature Will Work Overtime Annapolis, Md., March 11 (/p) — Maryland lawmakers, who usually go home Friday afternoon and remain until Monday night, will have a shorter weekend beginning this Saturday— when they will work.

Cow At Clearspring Is Near Record Age Lady Pontiac Friend Piebe, 19 Years Old, Freshens Again Believed to be the oldest oo\v in Washington county, and possibly the oldest in the state of Maryland, H registered Holstem owned by H. Page Smith, Clearspring, freshened with a large healthy heifer calf last month, at the ripe old age of 19 years. The cow is "Lady Pontiac Friend Piebe". And though no records are available on the oldest cows in this section, she is probably one of the most ancient. The calf with which she freshened on February 4 is her 15th calf, all of which were healthy and good type. This matriarch among dairy animals bore her first calf, a heifer, wheu she was two years of age, and has given birth to a calf each year since then except in the years of 1943, 1945, and 1946. Of these calves, Mr. Smith still has five in his herd. He also has five of Lady's granddaughters, a grandson, and five great-granddaughters in the herd. When a heifer, Lady won several blue ribbons at the Hagerstown Fair. She was also judged grand champion hi the Calf club, and in the open class,.'way back in 1920.
