FRIDAY, .TUNE 5, 1958 SLYTHKVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE tent Caterpillars, Army Worms on Rampage in Mid-West, Eastern States By The Associated Press Two of mankind's toughest Insect foes — army worms and ten caterpillars — are voraciously rampaging in record hordes in severa sections of the country this year. A check by Associated Press bureaus brought such comments as "heaviest infestation in 20 years," . . . "worsening by the hour" . . . "million dollar damage to crops," and comment by the U. S. Depart- of Agriculture that preliminary results of a survey now underway showed a "general outbreak" of army worms from the East Coast to the Mississippi. At Watertown, N. Y., tent caterpillars blanketed railroad tracks in such hordes that a freight train was delayed 35 minutes as wheels Pamphlet 1 to Aid Gi's in Buying Their Homes WASHINGTON UP) — A 32-page pamphlet designed to tell veterans many of the things they need to know about buying homes with GI loans has been published by the government. The Veterans' Administration said today the guide covers such things as what a veteran should r — look for in location and house, costs | Ocularly heavy army worm out- skidded on the pulpy mass. Minne sola was ready to do battle, with the most complete pest contro program in 30 years, against wha experts have predicted will be the state's "worst tent caterpillar in festation" in history. Two other Insect pests were re ported out in major force in more limited areas. Massachusetts Is contending with gypsy moths tha are expected to strip trees of their foliage across 25,000 acres; and the grape steely beetle is plaguing vineyards in an area around West field. N.

Weather Blamed Tent caterpillars are concentrated in New Jersey, New York Minnesota, Wisconsin, Washington Georgia and Maine. No one coulc say what the cause of the outbreak was, but freakish weather was mentioned as a possible reason some quarters. The U. S. Department of Agriculture said its survey showed par- of home ownership, contract details and what to expect before and after moving into a new home. Veterans who apply for certificates of elgibility for QI loans will be given copies. Veterans may also write to the VA's regional office for copies. The pamphlet is free. Brodie Twin Appears on TV NEW YORK OT—The world's rarest baby, 21-months-old Rodney Dee Brodie, went before a big audience last night, looking like any pink-cheeked tike awakened from his evening nap. He appeared on a nationwide television show — six months after an operation seperating him from his head-to-head Siamese twin brother. He Is the only child in medical history who has survived such art operation. Wearing gurgled contentedly while doctors in Chicago told of the delicate eur- | gery which gives him a chance for j a normal life. ! His brother, Roger Lee, died 34 i n__i. /%££:,__ fl-. ~J days after the operation. rOSf VrrlCG lrlOS€Cl a floppy cap. Rodney breaks in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Tennessee. In addition, It reported damage hi Illinois and Indiana by the corn flea beetle and harm to the cotton crop in some sections of the South by the boll weevil. The army worms concentrate on grass crops such as clover and grains like barley, rye, wheat and corn—but if supplies run out they readily turn to tobacco, tomatoes and other garden crops. They are about an inch and a quarter long, thick as a pencil, and have smooth greyish-brown appearance. After they have eaten their fill, within the next two weeks in most sections, they go underground and emerge in the fall as moths. The tent caterpillar (furry, inch and a half long) also becomes an autumn moth, but digests its feast of leaves on tree branches. All of the pests are night eaters, which means that the men armed with sprays of DDT, arsenate of lead and Paris green are handicapped in daytime extermination efforts.

Lieutenant Colonel Martin Charteris, the Princess's private secretary, liardly crediting the news, sought confirmation from London. It was the Duke of Edinburgh j "" who gently told his unsuspecting wife the news of her father's death and that she was now Queen of England. When she first understood what he was saying, she wept, but, said Lieutenant Colonel Charteris. she took the news "bravely, like a Queen." It was the first time in history that a British monarch had no ceded to the Throne in Africa. X"^»^^__ _*/* f> !••! *—-"^^^•••"^ tH«T*l»UT«0 PXINTIOt HALL. INC. T NtA imvlCI lik« to attain.

So began the Atalanta's 4444- mile return flight, to Britain and the airport from which only six days previously the King had waved his daughter farewell.
