Leaf Troubles EWNY BUSmESS Plague Trees During Heat By Hershberger [ SHADE-TREE leaf troubles are among the many at this time Leaf troubles are now plainly visible in many parts of the country. The troubles are associated primarily with the rainy spell this Bpring and the lack of rainfall eince then. In some cases, the troubles were undoubtedly aggravated by the weakened condition of the trees as a result of neglect In the past. Several distinctly different diseases are involved. The first, the so-called leaf scorch disease, is prevalent on sugar and silver maples. Leaf scorch is believed to result where the roots are unable during hot and dry periods to supply sufficient water to the leaves. Such a set of conditions occurred during the heat wave early in July The type of growth which de veloped just prior to these high JBBS. RUTH HALE, 910 Pennsylvania, Is the office clerk at the new Anthony School. She is from Texas and has a BS degree in vocational home economics from the Texas State College for women at Denton. Her husband, Marcus Hale, is on a leave of absence from civil service work at the Fort while he studies .for his master's degree at the University of Kansas. 'It's the man instinct starting to show up!" temperatures and the soil moisture content were without doubt contributing factors in the severity oi the scorch. Infections produced by leaf spotting and blighting fungi are easily confused with leaf scorch and can be differentiated best by a microscopic examination of the browned tissues. Leaves attacked by parasites usually show more or less circular spots of varying sizes, scattered over the surfaces, whereas leaves affected by scorch show browning primarily along the edges in severe cases, and scattered, angular jlotches between the veins in milder cases. Moreover, fungus infections are more abundant on the lower, inore shaded portions of the tree, whereas scorch is more prevalen- on the side of prevailing winds or sun rays. Because leaf scorch is not caused [by attacks of parasite agents, ! sprays will do little good. Any practice which will improve the general condition of the tree should be initiated. Fertilization 'this fall | or early next spring probably is | the best treatment. The tops of trees with restricted or injured 'root systems should be reduced by CARMV VL By Dick Turnei T. K. P.,. U.

Trying to sneak something of a personal, domestic nature into my campaign promises?" . judicious pruning in order to increase the supply of water to the remaining leaves. Leaf spots and leaf blights due to fungi do not occur with enough regularity or with sufficient destructiveness to warrant the application of several Bordeaux or other sprays necessary to curb them. The fallen leaves should be gathered and burned to eliminate an impor- Unt source of next spring's infections.

Iff)—Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Richard M. Nixon promised Saturday that a new Republican administration in Washington "will spend less than it takes in." The California senator said: "A family which year after year spends more than it takes in will go bankrupt. The same is true of a government and it means a reduced value of the dollar you earn." He said he was sure the Republicans could make better use of the money sent to Washington as taxes. "We must get rid of the crooks in the Department of Internal Revenue and other agencies who have been stealing the money you have been sending there in taxes."
