MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 4 BH-1937 NINE IET.Y Lawn Care i Is Subject at Meeting Ames Professor Discusses Ways to Keep Home Ground Green. Members of the Woman's club outdoor department heard a discussion on "The Care of Lawns" and saw a collection of slides on rose culture at a meeting Wednesday afternoon at tlie library assembly with Prof. John \Vingert, extension lecturer for the horticulture department of Iowa State college, as speaker. \ Selecting Kentucky blue grass as the best for the average home lawn, Professor Wingert pointed out that it has remarkable powers for recuperation and goes dormant, rather than dies in periods of drought. Mr. Wingert outlined the procedure in preparing a lawn, saying that in building n new lawn it is necessary to go to considerable trouble, but that the results justify the work. Plan for Drainapc. "Attention should be given first to drainage," he said. "The greatest damage is done to lawns where there are small pockets from which the water does not drain off. Under drainage is important and sometimes it is necessary to use tile to get proper results. Providing for surface runoff is also For Winter Vacations GLOBE-GAZETEE PEERLESS 15 CENT PATTERN 160 Fifth Avenue, New York City By DIANA DAY important. "Kentucky blue grass likes a rich loamy soil, f n flower beds and vegetable gardens we use fertilizer, yet lawns with millions of small plants competing for foods arc often left unfertilized. Lawns should be fertilized with manure or peat moss. We do not recommend bent grass for the average home ground because it requires more expense at the beginning than other grass and its upkeep is also more expensive. Physical Preparation. "The physical preparation 'of soil before seeding is important. It should be plowed and then a good surface provided by raking and rolling. There should be about three and one-half pounds of seed to 1,000 square feet of lawn and if seeding is done by hand it should be done three ways, across both ways and diagonally. There should be a light raking after the seeding .. "Seeding may be done either in spring or fall and in towns where a \Vater supply is available, the fall seeding is better. The latter part of April to the middle of Maj is the best time for spring seeding here. The lawn should be sprinkled lightly when seeding is firsl Marine Slacks, Halter' Blouse and Jacket Complete Costume for Winter or Summer Vacations.

"In feeding lawns, three applications of fertilizer are recommended andl a complete fertilizer and ones with the individual elements have been chosen. Nitrogen stimulates green growth and may be administered in ammonium sulphate or nitrate of soda. The lawn should be watered after it is put on to prevent burning. "Mowers are generally set down too far and they should be set higher. Never more than an inch and a half should be mowed and grass should go into the winter KM \937UHSQGflfES YOU WOULDN'T WIDER STAND,DEAR. BUT IT MEANS A LOT TO A WOMAN.

Types of lawns for rejuvenation named by Mr. Wingcrt were three In the first type where the soil i fairly good, but the grass has be come thin and there are a fe\ weeds, a light top dressing shoul be put on and then the lawn re ceded. Turn. It Under. Where the soil-is fairly good, bu .here is little grass and man weeds, the logical thing to do put on a top dressing, and turn under. This will give the grass quick start when it is seeded. If the soil is poor to begin with, oads of good soil should be brought in and then the same procedure should be followed as with a new lawn. 'The best way to control weeds to follow a good lawn main- .enance program," Mr. Wingcrt said. He told how to control dandelions, crab grass and quack grass and other weeds which members of the audience asked him about, period of questions followed. The program was concluded with the showing of colored slides of various rose gardens.
