Home gardeners are advised to use a 3 per cent DDT dust for most potato insects, especially against leaf hoppers. These leaf hoppers are now the most serious insect threat to potatoes. Be sure that the dust gets on the underside of the leaves, say Iowa State college specialists, to get the leaf hoppers sucking the juice from underneath the potato leaf. Gardeners often confuse leaf hopper damage with blight. Shaking the leaves will make 'hoppers appear. The potato leaves turn brown along the outer., edges and later over the entire surface when leaf hoppers attack the plant. If the plants die, potatoes will be small. The specialists recommend dusting every week to 1Q days as long as potato vines are green. VISITS PARENTS Osage —The Rev.

Robinson, secretary of the Iowa Corn and Small Grain Growers association Tuesday reminded soybean producers who may wish to enter the contests. Entry must be completed in local contests and names and addresses of local contestants forwarded with entry fees to the Iowa Corn and Small Grain Growers association, Robinson emphasized. All entries must be postmarked not later than July 31, he said. Government crop reports indicate there will be some good soybean yields in the state this year which should make for spirited contests and possibly break all yield records, Robinson says. All- time Iowa yield record was set by John Knudsen of Albia, Iowa soybean champion in 1946. Entries in the 1948 Master Soybean Growers contests must be made through local contests. Soybean producers interested in entering such contests should contact county agricultural agents, Smith- Hughes instructors or local soybean processors, who have the necessary information, Robinson said. To the winner of the state contest will go $50, the John Sand trophy awarded annually to John Sahd, Marcus, Iowa, soybean producer, and the title of Iowa Master Soybean Grower. Second and 3rd prizes are also offered in the state contest. Fifteen dollars and master soybean growers' medals will be awarded to each district first place winner, with additional prizes for other place winners. A certificate will be awarded to first place winner in each local contest in addition to prizes by local organizations in those contests. The contests, which have been held annually since 1941, are sponsored by the Iowa Corn and Small Grain Growers association and the Iowa Soybean processors association.

M. Roney on his farm near Swaledale, are cited in an article in the August issue of Capper's Farmer entitled "Land Mat Silo." A photograph of Roney's silo accompanies the article. "Metal landing strip," the story in the nationally circulated farm magazine points out, "makes Roney a good temporary silo. He bought 2 rolls as war surplus and cut them in two. These lengths with a 3-foot space for doors, made a 13i-foot circle. "Two. 35-foot light poles set 3 feet apart formed the door frames and the ladder runs. Ends of the landing mat were fastened to the poles. In filling, Roney set the rings up one at a time as he would slat or wire cribbing and wired the upper to the lower each time.

That the period of enlistment is 21 months. "2. That a reserve obligation is incurred as follows: (1) Upon honorable discharge from the army I shall be transferred to the enlisted reserve corps and serve therein for 5 years unless sooner discharged, or (2) If offered enlistment in an organized unit of any reserve component of any of the armed forces, 1 will serve therein satisfactorily for a period of at least 36 consecutive months. "3. That the reserve obligation may be discharged by: (1) Extending my enlistment for one year, or (2) Re-enlisting in the RA for a period which will make my total active federal service equal to 33 months or more under such terms .of enlistment as are authorized by the army. "An individual enlisting for 21 months under this authority may extend such enlistment by one year to a 33 month period. Recommends 3 Year Enlistment Lt. A. C. Early from the local recruiting office states that although the 21 month enlistment sounds enticing, actually a boy is far better off with a 3 year enlistment. He states that the army is a peculiar institution. It has a lot of good jobs and the good jobs will be done by the boys who go after them. If the young man has the ambition and determination to get through one of the 200 top flight schools the army offers 3 year enlistees, the instructors make it their job to see that he gets through and well on his way to a planned career. Lieutenant Early states it all boils down to this: "The opportunity is there. The army can prove with thousands of case histories that a young man who wants a college education and is willing to work for it, can join the army, learn a practical trade, earn enough credits to complete half of his college education and still save enough money to pay the rest of his way to a college degree." Further information may be had by contacting the army and air force recruiting main station, 115 First S. E., or phone 809. Anticipate Large Fall Pig Crop Ames—Iowa's spring pig crop turned out much better than expected, and indications are that the fall crop will be the largest since 1945, I. W. Arthur, Iowa State College agricultural economist, reports. In spite of being the smallest spring crop since 1941, Arthur: points out that it is still about 1 per cent above the 10-year average and considerably above the total indicated by the intentions of farmers last fall. The number of sows farrowing was cut only 13 per cent and more pigs were saved per litter. Arthur says that this made the spring pig crop only 6 per cent below the spring of 1947. Iowa farmers saved almost 6 and one-half pigs per litter last spring, more than a half-pig more per litter than the year before. This number of pigs saved is the second largest on record. Later farrowing dates and favorable weather during the peak farrowing months is given much of the credit for the increased number saved. Arthur reports that the June farrowing this year was one of the largest on record. In addition, Hawkeye state farmers intend to have 725,000 sows farrow from June to December—10 per cent more than 1947 fall litters. Intentions to increase fall litters is statewide, with the largest increase reported from the western one-third portion. It may be possible that some of the heavy cattle feeding areas will increase the number of fall pigs as an outlet for a larger share of their 1948 corn crop, Arthur believes.
