They don't do much damage but they are a nuisance, enter ing homes through cracks and swarming on walls and furni ture. Don't suck them up in v a c u um cleaners. They an easily crushed and make un sightly stains. To prevent infestations, spray their leeding places in g r a s and shrubbery near the house and outside lower walls and loundations with Kelthane or chlorobenzilate. Indoors, use a pyrethrum spray or aerosol, which kills mites on contact. If you have caged birds or fish tanks, remove or cover them be- lore spraying. Requirements For Exhibiting livestock Set Following is a list of the requirements necessary for e x - hibition of all livestock and poultry for 1965: 1. Complete compliance with Michigan Department of Agriculture letter of February 5, 965 to all secretary-managers of county, district and com- nunity fairs —mainly: Grounds must be properly cleaned and kept up; buildings, pens and cages must be properly cleaned and disinfected at least ,hree weeks prior to opening date and physical facilities must be such that they will nsure the health and welfare of all livestock, exhibitors and latrons. 2. All required testing for Brucellosis should be done at least two weeks prior to opening date. Permits are good lor 90 days. 3. All testing and requests for exhibitioin certificates of record should be made in the herd owner's same —individual family owners, such as son o r daughter, etc., may list their names opposite the individual animal. 4. All animals requiring certificates of record or vaccination certificates must be accompanied by said certificate when presented for entry t o ground or barns. Failure to have the required certificates wi 11 result in the animal being refused entry. It is suggested that all cattle having certificates have the name of the animal on the top of the certificate. No animals will be enhibited from herds under quarantine for any reason.

Fair Books Are Distributed ESCANABA — Premium books for the 1965 Upper Pen- nsula State Fair are off the press FPd ready for distribution, 31iff Perras, fair manager, has reported An innovation this year is the three-color cover for the prize winning design by a young Manistique artist, Dietm a r Krumrey. Each year the cover is designed by an Upper Peninsula High School student and last year's winner was Darlene Waatti, Houghton. Copies of the premium book may be obtained at the U. P. State Fair office in Escanaba. Copies are also available at offices of county agricultural agents and Chambers of Commerce in the region. Two thousand copies have been printed. The premium book contains a complete listing of the awards offered for prize winning e x - hibits in all of the lair's many departments. The fair has a total of $27,000 for the payment of premiums, but because of the grow ing participation in the fair it is possible that premiums may have to be paid on a ceiling basis. This is the policy of the Fair Board, if such measures are necessary. The fair dates are Aug. 17-22 inclusive. The well is going dry, even in Michigan's Water Wonderla n d, and it is everyone's responsibility to help conserve the water supply. People are using 10 to 12 times as much water as they used to, says Carl Edwards, agricultural engineer with the Michigan State University C o operative Extension Service. Today we use at least 40 gallons of water per person each day. In the cities the amount may run as high as 167 gallons per day when the water for industrial uses is taken into account. Cities throughout the country are facing water shortage problems. 'Many are drilling new and deeper wells in search o f additional supplies of water. Edwards says that the problem is not one for the city fathers, but it must be tackled in the individual homes. Even with all of our modern equip' ment, such as dish washers garbage disposers, and auto matic washing machines w e can preserve many gallons of water each day. We can become water man agers, rather than water wasters, if we follow these water saving practices when we bathe launder clothes or merely wash our hands: 1. Be sure your toilet flush tank valve—the one in the bot torn of the tank —shuts off com pletely after every flush. Afte the tank has filled and the in let valve has automati c a 11 closed, see if water continue to flow in to the toilet bowl. I it does, the tank valve is no shutting off and the water goin through the toilet bowl i wasted. 2. Check the flush tank flo valve for the proper level an effective shut off. If the wate flows over the top of the ove flow pipe in the tank after th tank is filled, the float is risin too high in the tank and is no closing the valve, or the valv is defective and is not stoppin the water flow. 3. if you plan to replace your toilet or add a new one, get an outfit with a small flush tank- 2 quarts Instead of 20 to 24 uarts per flush. . You can Install a recently de- eloped flush control valve vhich allows a small flush with bout one-half the usual amount f water. This volume of water s usually sufficient for flushing,! but if not, the lever can be I pushed a second time or held down to use a complete tank Df water per flush. 5. Don't let faucets drip, o r you'll waste gallons of water jer day. Leaky hot water faucets are especially costly, since you are paying for wasted heat as well as the water. 6. You can save water by filing the sink bowl with a small amount of water to wash your lands instead of letting the water run while you scrub. 7. Use a new type mix i n g faucet which can be pre-set for the amount of hot water in the mix before starting the flow of water. Then, no water is wasted while you adjust the mix to a desired temperature. 8. When you take a shower, use a stopper in the tub and check the amount of water you use. If it exceeds the amount for a reasonable tub bath, the shower is wasteful. 9. Adjust the water level in the washing machine for the size load to be washed. Do a full load each time the machine is filled. 10. Some types of sprinkle r s throw water around and much of it evaporates before it touches the ground. Irrigate o n 1 j Pesticide Safety Rules Are Noted MADISON — Needless tragedy can be avoided by strict observance of one of the basic pesticide safety rules — alwayi keep all pesticides In the original labeled container, e m • hasizes Ron Doersch, weed ontro.i specialist at the Univer- ity of Wisconsin. It is important to store these hemicals in an inaccessible lace such as a locked cabinet, ince most accidents with pes- icides are caused by improper torage and handling. Never transfer these ma- erials into another container. Dven though you think you will 'emember what the chemical s, without the label, you can never be certain of the product you are handling, and there is no way to check the directions and prpcautions. Recently a Wisconsin man died because a weed-killer was stored in a beverage bottle and thor consumed by mistake. The weed-kiling chemical, sod- um arsenite, is highly toxic compared to other herbicides commonly used. A m i n ute amount of the sodium arsenite, 1-40 of an ounce, is calculated to be fatal to a 150 pound man, as compared to atrazine, another herbicide that has a lethal dose of 4 ounces. Arsenites and arsenates are hazardous to work with and have largely been replaced b y newer and safer pesticides that do the same job. Doersch says. when necessary, and use a sprinkler which puts the wate on the ground instead of in the air. None of us want to be withou the use of our modern appll ances, but we can't continu using them at our present rat of water consumption. Edward says, "These suggestions sourv austere, but not half so austeri as we'll have to be if the wel goes dry." New for 1965 are big, tub size clay pots for tree-like foil age plants. The 14 and 16-inc sizes come with matching sau cers. However, due to the low cost of the arsenite and arsena t e compounds, many people sti 11 use these materials. If you must use sodium ar- senite, Doersch stresses, a 1 ways keep it in the original, labeled container and out of children's reach. Last year a Wisconsin child died after tasting an arsenite compound. Wear protective clothing and use a respirator and goggles when applying the chemical. Ar- senites will burn your skin. When you feel the burning sensation, this is a warning t o wash the chemical off immediately.
