FRESH EGGS at AIX TIMES Welfare Program To Be Continued, Truman Promises (By United Press) No one need speculate any more about the Democratic platform for the 1950 camfpaign... .the leader of the party—Harry S. Truman- had made that clear. The chief executive says he will keep plugging for his legislative program... .for welfare legislation. And he predicts that the voters will show they are for that program in the 1950 elections^ That was the essence of Mr. Truman's remarks in a nationwide radio address from St. Paul last night. Some 12,000 persons who heard the speech in St. Paul liked what iMr. Truman had to say in the address he called non-political. But Republican National Chairman Guy Gabrielson didn't like it at all. He wired the Columbia Broadcasting system—which carried the broadcast—that Mr. Truman's \vordii were political . and he demanded radio time for a GOP reply. C-B-S says it will check the text of the address and let the Republican party know its decision. A GOP leader Senator Robert Taft of Ohio, warns tthat a defeat for conservatives in the 1950 elections, means the nation will go Socialist., on the lines of the British labor government. Taft told the Ohio Chamber of Commerce yesterday that the President's welfare program would add 20-billion dollars to the national budget.

BODY FOUND Easton, Nov. 4—(UP)—The body of a 62-year-old man has been j found hanging from an apple tree Record Catch A RECORD catch on light tackle if this 53^pound, 3-ounce king salmon proudly displayed by fisherman Erne St. Claire of Portland, Ore. After the strike, the angler waded in and played his catch for some distance downstream in the Ne- halera River before maneuvering it into the shallow water.

Evergreen Needles Dropping Call For Watering, Mulch Countless tree owners are worried this Fall by the appearance of their evergreens. The needles are browning and dropping off. It to not the usual dropping-of three-year-old needles, reports Dr. Rush P. Marshall, director of the Bartlett Tree Research Laboratory. But two-year- old needles are falling-" as well, making: an alarmingly large carlptet of dead needles beneath the trees and shrubs. White pines look bald, almost like "picked chickens," with only this year's growth of needles /•enaaining 1 . Hemlock, flrs end spruces have been equally hard hit. Many arborvitae have taken .on a brownish cast, with only the tip?, of the fan-like spray of leaves remaining green. The trees are dropping the needles, Dr. Marshall says, to reduce their leaf surface and thus protect tremselves from the effects of the long Summer drought. With less moisture available than normally to the roots, these trees by some 'mysterious signals of their own shed their leaves to cut down transpiration losses. What can tree owners do? Water their trees well before the ground .freezes. Evergreens need water in the winter for there is transpiration - loss or moisture constantly. But avoid over-watering- which may cause roots to rot. If your soil has a hardpan bottom, there is a tendency for wafer to stand giving a tree "wet feet." Hemlocks like a moist soil, for example, but they cannot stand as much water as a white r^ln^ Most evergreens prefer moist but well- drained soil. After watering, apply a mulch of oak leaf compost. This will prevent deep freezing of the ground and help retain moisture. Evergreens tha't have been transplanted this Pall are in ipar, ticular need of water and mulch'!' Water daily until the plant has been well established. There should be a slight depression rather than a mound at the base of the tree so the water will be held in. For newly transplanted evergreens,- an extra heavy mulch is recommended, tout this .should be partially remo\*d next Spring.
