The battle to control insect pests should be;;in in tin; homo vegetable garden In the spring, \vhen' plants are youny and before they ! have been damaged bv insects. Since LJ.n.T. became available to home gardeners, methods of fighting insect pests have been greatly simplified. This ne\v material destroys so many dilterent insects that it is simpler to list those Which it does not kill, and against which other Oeslruclivo means must be used. Vegetable pardon pest-; "gainst which U.D.T. is ineflccti\ rludo the Mexican bean beeti,. .unto worm, and c:ibb*»se, tursil^ and melon nphids. It kills cucumber beetles and squash borers, but in some cases is reported lo have in- juri-O. plants of cucumber, squash and melons, so its use on those subjects is not yet recommended. Against leaf-hoppers which attack beans, potatoes and other plants; and flea beetles, which attack potatoes, tomatoes and egg plant. D.U.T. does an excellent job, better by far lh;m any other material which was previously known. It lulls both kinds or cabbage v.orms, the European corn borer, aphids -on peas nnd potatoes, the. Japanese beetle, gladiolus Ihrips, jind most other pests of ornamental pkmts, but not the red spider.mile. All tho - common ^insect peats -kvliit-ii D.D.T. does not kill con cU stroy(:U by :otciionc, whicli is availrLblc this ycnr in ample sup* ply, so that a mixture of these two materials will .srrve as nn all- around insecticide for garden usj. Most convenient way lo apply them, cither singly or together, is as a dust. This should be obtained, ready mixed, since it is diHicnlt for tlie amateur lo mix technical D.D.T. with a carrier; and the D.D.T. con- lent should be at least 3 £ ,j with 5% preferred by most advisers, fot- garden use. lit a spvay is preferred, then a wcttable D.D.T. powder is recommended, rather than one containing any solvent. The D.D.T. does not dissolve in water, but a wet table powder will mix thoroughly with it, and be held in suspension. It can thus be applied evenly lo a plant and when the water evaporates the D.D.T. will remain as a deposit ou the stems and leaves. This "residue" will kill insects which walk across it. whether they be the type that eat plant tissues or drink plant juices. K may remain on the plant for weeks or even months depending nn its strength in the first place, mid its exposure to sun and rain, both o£ which shorten the toxic period. In any event it i^ elective much longer than the older poisons and requires fewer up- plications. This quality of D.D.T. makes it possible. ; io -protect garden plants before damage lias been done, and prevent insects from griming a foot hold in your garden.

Applications from Arkansas j should be wiled not later than July 1. a-s time is required for pronp.s to make arrangements for having samples taken. Additional time is required to process applications ami |o deliver .supplies to sampling ' agencies. Mr. Kohlheim stated, ''Producers find that the classing and Market News services put extra cash in their pockets. By knowing the ^ratle and staple length of their ; cotton and what that quality is worth, they are in a bftter position to bargain for a fair price. The classing service helps them to get larger lots of uniform cotton and thus attract buyers to their community. It serves as a check on care used in picking and ginning. It liclps them to check on the performance of planting .seed and to learn winch variety is best adapted to their farm and community." Applications for services under Hie Act. according to Mr. Kohlheim were approved tor 407 groups with H.9H5 members in 1940-47. This represents a very substantial increase in the number to use the services, since they became available in 1938. During the 194G-47 Benson about 3BO.OOO samples were classed for members of cotton improvement groups in Arkansas. Applications will be accepted i\ til August I. but none can be accepted after that date for approval.
