(Charlie) Stalcnp Phone 2993 or 2598 HV HENHV.r,. -PHEE I Wrillen for NEA Service The Japanese menace Is by no means confined to Asia and the South Pacific. From Maine to Georgia and west to Chicago and St. Louis, a small Insect known as the Japanese beetle Is consolidating his beachheads and slowly hut surely gaining ground In the battle between man and Insect. This beetle came to America from Europe, landing first in New Jersey where no control action was taken until long after great damage occurred. The beetles are now spreading westward and, at present, constitute one of the most serious of all our insect pests. " The Japanese beltle will eat almost, any flower or leaf, in fact there are over 260 dicreiit plants on which he has been found feasting. I observed one rose with 19 hectics making merry and one small branch of an elm had at least 500 chewing on the leaves. . At present, the beetle is in Its gnil) form, nlxmt 4 to 8 inches below the surface of the lawn ard will work his way up just as soon as the earth begins to warm, feeding In the meanwhile OH the grass roots. During May the grub changes to pupa and then to the adult beetle which emerges during June to feed on foliage, flowers and fruit. After a short feeding period egg laying begins and each female lays 30 to 50 eggs, preferably In sunny sod near their favored plants. Such sod is sure to be damaged by fall and spring feeding of newly hatched grubs. Plants most frequently attacked arc: grape, raspberry, apple, chcr- The Japanese beetle Is easily recognized. to other parts of the yard. The best way to fight the beetle Is (o kill tlie grubs now In the lawn, throunh the use of lead arscnale, n-deadly poison, at the rale of one pound per 100 square feet; or, if available, a bacteria called Milky Disease Spore DiiKl, at the rate of one pound per 4000 square feet of area. Lead nrscnatc must be applied evenly to the soil and raked anJ watered into the top two Inches; one treatment will provide protection for five years. Milky Disease Spore Dust kills beetle grubs. Ijiit is harmless to you mid your pels Apply one teas\K)onful of this dust to the soil at five-foot Intervals, ii rows five feet apart. The InfecUx grubs die amk liberate additions millions of disease spores which, Ir theory, make (his method of contro self-perpetuating. willow.

Put Fertilizer On Garden Now Method Is Suggested To Increase System Of Plant Roots Mississippi County Victory gnr- deners should apply fcrlUlwr now Io the garden space reserved for the warm weather crops which will be planted during the next few weeks, Miss Cora Leo Coleman, county home demonstration agent, advised this week. Tlie fertilizer, she explained, should be placed In two bands oh each side of the row where seed Is to be planted or plants set out. In applying the fcrttUzcr,' gardeners should open furrows nt least four Inches deep on each side of the Hue where the crop is to be planted, mix the fertilizer well with the soil In the bottom of the furrow, then nil in the furrow to the ground level. If this method is used, roots will luivc n larger area In which to find plant food and will develop a greater rout system. This" will be an advantage when the dry weather of summer makes Its appcnrance.- Okra may be planted nny time now following a few days of warm sunshine. The ground should be fairly wnrin to Insure u good stand Soaking the seed for 24 hours before planting will hasten germination. The seeds should be sown uboul one inch deep and close to- Ki-lher in rows 30 to 36 inches apart. The crop should be fertilized with fo.n- or, five pounds of mixed fertl- li/r-r for each JOO feet of row. Good varieties are White Lightning, White Velvet and Cfcmson Spineless. Okrn plants usually bear until frost If the pods are not allowed to ripen. Cucumbers require so much space and produce such a small amount of food per unit area of land that they should not be grown In the very small gardens. However, II space is available, plantings tiray be made about April 15. If the weather should be cool at that time, planting should be delayed as warm weather is necessary for good germination, cucumbers should Implanted in hills 2 to 3 feet apart In rows 3 or 4 feet apart..Eight or 10 seeds arc planted in each hill and later thinned to leave two or three plants. This allows for damage or loss from insects and disease. Good results' can be obtained from'bed- ding n quart or half-gnlloh measure of well-rotted barnyard manure in each hill before planting. In addition, C or 7 pounds of commercial mixed fertilizer should be used for ench 100 feet of row. .If n slicing type of cucumber-Is desired the'Early Fortune, Colorado. Straight Eight, or A and C are good varieties. For pickling purposes, National Pickling or Chicago Pickling are excellent.

She ;>lans on a good garden this year and plans to can as much as possible. Mrs. Rlne still has sufficient canned foods on hand to supply llie family table until the new crop of fruits, vegetables, find meats are ready for canning. Only last week, Mrs. Rine canned several quarts of :hicKen, which were part of the 'ate fall flock of baby chicks. The results Mrs. Rine has obtained should be an inspiration to all other farm families who really believe in a live-at-home program. Tlie supervisory personnel in the county office recently attended a district conference In Little Rock, where various problems of supervision were discussed, and where the personnel learned how to better assist the families on the Farm Security program.
