13 THE LA.WTON CONSTITUTION, Thursday, Auguit 22, 1963 The mother of the sculptor Frederic Bartholdi served as the model for Lhe Statue ol Liberty. ·Eurasia is the. name .used when speaking o[ Asia' and Europe'as a single continent. .. ...they'd give MILNOT Government Laboratory Seeks Better Ways To Control Pests By DICK WEST United Press Jnic'rnallciiixl WASHINGTON UPI) -- One b£ the major tasks confronting mankind is finding a means of. doing away wilh insects without, upsetting 'Rachel Carson. . I n her book "Silent Spring," Miss Carson put her . loot down regarding the use of chemical pesticides. This brought loi-Lh siiRfjesLions' that slie should try putting her loot down on a lew bugs. Il was generally agreed, however, that her point aboul pesti- cides upsetting the 1 , balance ol nature was. well laken.. As one '.who has. been leeling a 'little unbalanced myself, I am pleased .to 'observe that Miss Carson's . message has begun to make ilsell.felt. New Laboratory At Gainesville, F!a., this week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is dedicating a new insect research laboratory to Ihe pursuit of bettor methods of controlling pests. Among other things, the .lab will study various biological measures, such as insect birth control. I don't have- the program for the dedication 'ceremony, but I think it woi;!d be appropriate it they invited Miss Carson lo throw out the first cockroach, or something like that. In addition lo (ills project, a team of departmen; scientists at Bellsviile, Md., has slarled a search for new physical methods o( controlling four types of flies, They are investigating the I merits of light rays, sound j waves, air currents and geomet- ] ric patterns as weapons against 1 these pests. Apparently they have concluded that the fly swatter is obsolete. Other Good News No results (rom Beltsville are expected for a long time yet, but there is good news from the Agri- cujture Research Service at Corvallis. Ore. Scientists there have discovered l h a t female houseflics apparently use some sort of per- f u m e to attract male flies, i Proof of the role that scent plays in the romance of a house-1 fly was obtained wiih a device called an olfaclometer. The scientists .put some male flies in one chamber and ihen put some females in another chamber where the fellows couldn't see them. Despite the absence of sight or sound to Jure them, a significant number of the males wound up in the chamber with the females. It is assumed, therefore, that the perfume got 'em. According to ihe Agriculture Department, the Corvallis experiment holds promise of developing into something big in the way fly control. I would not care I speculate just how.
