A. H. Bauer, Extension Plant Pathologist, late tomato blight has been found in the new plants now growing in the greenhouses in Western Pennsylvania.

By Glenn KUenbergcr Ass't County Agent Injures Pasture Cows, like thwir owners, are subject to spring fever. As the young grass starts, cows become restless and are anxious to get out on pasture. Evidence of 'fever' on the part of dairymen is that they turn them out too soon. If pastured too soon the grass will be injured for the rest of the season. When grass first starts it may contain from 85 to 90 percent water.

If cows are to be maintained both in condition of flesh and in milk production, continue winter feeding schedule for a few days when they are first turned on past-ture. As the grass becomes more mature changes in the feeding schedule can be made. Then grass makes up the larger part of the feed. But continue feeding dry hay throughout the pasture seascn. This practice has given many dairymen excellent results.

The dry hay helps to slow up the grass passing through the digestive tract and enables the cow to make much better use of the nutrients in the grass. Feed the dry hay either in the barn or from a rack in the pasture where cows can help themselves. The protein content of the grain mixture may be lowered to 12 to 16 percent depending upon the quality and amount of pasture, and less grain is needed if plenty of The most practical ounce of prevention that a farmer can use in helping lo control the spread of European corn' borer in Somerset County is the prompt plowing down of all corn stalks before the DEADLINE MAY 1. This practice buries the cocoon stage of the corn borer and smothers out the moth when it tries to get to the to fly away and lay eggs for the coming season. Not only must corn stalk ground be plowed but a complete job must be done.

One way in which this may be accomplished is to use a no. 9 wire 12 feet long with one end attached to the coulter post and the other end running underneath the coulter hub and trailing in the furrow being covered. This will drag down the stalks in orded that the next plowed furrow covers them. Every farmer must cooperate along this line to do a good job because moth that live over will flv mil Hugh L.
