WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 1948. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE. IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. turned} For the Herald'a Homemakera by Iowa State College Home Economists Spring Cleaning Alphabets— START WITH DDT DDT, applied with a pressure sprayer or paint brush to baseboards and cracks' in the floor. Is death to carpet beetles and silvcrflsh. So, when rugs are up and the house is cleared—housccleaning time—wage your war on Insects. If clothes moths arc your big problem, remove all clothing from the closets and give the closets the works with your DDT houseclcanlng aid. Dust, grease, grime—all banished in spring housecleaning. But how about the insects and larvae that resist the broom? They remain a headache during Iowa's "buggiest" months—be- ween April and September. DDT can play a major role in your sprint; housccleaning by destroying WM. C. BAKKUM CHIROPRACTOR In Postvllle Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays jJOSEPH B.

It's all trick of knowing what form of DDT to buy and how to use it, says Harold Gunderson, entomologist at Iowa State College. Oil Spray Best. The best all-around spray for home use is probably the odorless, colorless, non-staining oil spray containing 5 percent DDT. Its effectiveness depends upon its proper use with n coarse spray to places where insects will be in contact with the resulting DDT crystals. DDT powders also may be used dry with good results against some insects. But, Gunderson says, powders should not be mixed with water unless the label specifically states that this maybe done. The small household fly sprayer is inadequate for applying DDT sprays. If n 3'-.- gallon pressure sprayer is not available, the solution may be applied with a paint brush. Spray During Cleaning. Housecleaning time is a good time to paint or spray the DDT solution. Clear and scrub closets, clean baseboards and ceilings. Gunderson warns homemakers not to expect miracles from the spray. They should study their insect problems and attack each individually. Insects Attacking Clothing: Silverfish, clothes moths and carpet beetles may be controlled by spraying all parts of the closet, including floor, wall, shelves and behind baseboards and drawers. Woolen clothing, rugs, carpels, blankets, upholstered furniture and other articles can be sprayed without damage. Flies and Mosquitoes: Wet walls and ceilings with the spray. Apply one quart to 5-percent spray evenly to 225 square feet of surface. This will usually give control for two to three months. Gunderson warns that DDT in oil solution is poisonous. It penetrates through the skin and may cause a toxic condition. So, when considerable spraying is to be done, wear rubber gloves and cover nose and mouth with a cloth. There is no danger, however to children or pets playing on treated rugs after the spray has dried. Although the base oil in this type spray is stainless, it may cause a smudge if touched before the oil has evapoorated, usually two to four hours. Also, before venturing into a DDT- ing of your household, it's important to determine if the oil used as a DDT "Carrier" in the spray is inflammable. If so, it should never be used near an open flame.

Cheney, Iowa State College extension agronomist. Fortunate is the man who owns or | can obtain a grain drill with a fertilizer attachment, Cheney says. This | implement is most satisfactory for applying fertilizer either to small grain | and grass seedings or to pastures. Lacking this equipment the fertilizer must be broadcast. Low-down fertilizer spreaders, trailer, limestone spreaders or end-gate seeders may be used, provided the fertilizer is spread evenly and thoroughly worked into the soil. Disking to get the fertilizer well mixed with the top four inches of soil is important if it's spread on the surface. Since phosphate and potash fertilizers combine readily with the soil they remain where they are placed, Cheney says. That's why it's important to work them down into the soil where they will be available to plant roots. Special Meeting. A special meeting of the Town Council of the Incorporated Town of Postville, Iowa, was held on Monday, April 1, 1946. The Council met and organized at 12 o'clock noon. M. C. Deering took the oath of office as Mayor, given by A. J. Palas. F. C. Ruckdaschel, H. H. Schroeder, Keith Gregg, Glenn Olson and James Overland were duly sworn in as Councilmen, as was J. L.

Or you can plant them indoors in April for a head start, then set them out about the middle of May. Larry Grove, extension horticulturist at Iowa State College, .says the use of a "starter" solution at transplanting time may help avoid a check in growth. In the garden the plants should be set 3 to 4 feet apart, and 1 to 3 feet | in the row. All varieties should begin ripening early in July. That goes for the old fashioned garden ground cherry and the large-fruited varieties which are being handled by some seedsmen now. The large-fruited varieties, Grove points out, do not as yet possess the | high quality of the small kind. SALS3URY 5AL V 'm parky again - // wasn If too late, The boss increased my dosage to eight.
