T!ie Tomato Yield Damaged by Some Sprays FAYETTEVlUjE, Ark. — "Spare the Ilnrdraux mid save Ihe lomo- to plant" Is (he lutes! version uf the proverb about the rod nnd the child. At least dial is what scientists at the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station are recommending to the state's tomato t;ro\vei'S. Dr. V. II.

'1'lie Ksperlmcnt Station has been carrying on tomato sprayiun studies since 1030. looking for the best ways to control leaf spotting. These studies have shown I hat spraying \\ith Bordeaux may be definitely harmful to the plants because it makes them lose their water too rapidly l>i* evaporation. It is especially dangerous h" used just before or after transplant- Ing, when it often kills the plants or stunts them severely. However, If tomato folllngc show. 1 leaf spotting early in the season and showers or heavy dew hell' spren<| the diseases, some inethoc of control must be used, Dr. Yount. agrees. Otherwise Ihe plants wil lose most of their leaves and r poor crop of low quality fruit is almost sure to result. In place of the Bordeaux, lie recommends using "fixed copper" sprays or such materials as fcrmatc and y.erlatc. These sprays will give excellent control of leaf spoiling di- Second Victim of Auto Crash Dies at Gassville MOUNTAIN 'HOME. Ark., May 22.
