A Farmer Views Washington, D. C. Globe-Gazette Farm Page Editor Writes About Visit to Capita! 'By ARTHUR PICKFORD No. 3 On Sunday, I attended the church in Alexandria, which Washington, it is said, attended, and in which he held an office. The service was Episcopalian as ..... ,,. ., _. . would be natural in old Virginia. *L llls " e f Cincinnati, Ohio, and The church was well filled and Gveendalo. near Milwaukee, Wis.. burial ground and a few marble slabs. It was a wooden building throughout. I was fortunate in being able to inspect Greenbell, a garden city in the making, in Maryland, a few miles trom Washington. It is one of three projects already started by the resettlement administration, with the aim to provide good homes, with plenty of room in locations where the city can be planned and the town will be sale from the encroachment of factories and undesirable types of houses. The cost will be within the reach of families of low income. The other two towns are Green- th pews were of the style of ICO years ago, evidently made by the local carpenters. Each pew had a door, so that, if one chose to be exclusive, he could keep the door shut. Around three sides of the room there was a gallery, as was customary in England, in the time of Washington. The pulpit was up almost as high as the galleries. The clerk, or _ the assistant pastor, read the Scriptures and the hymns, from a small platform at the base o£ the pulpit. When the rector preached he went -up five or six steps into the pulpit and over his head hung a sounding board which was supposed to throw his voice out into the room. Organ Is Modern A pipe organ occupied mqst of the end gallery. It was. no doubt, more modern than the church. The player had an electric keyboard and sat to the right hand of the pulpit on the ground floor, in front of a choir of about 20 singers. The choir and congregation had quite as much to do in the service as the minister and as there were about 20 o£ the young folks received into the church, individually, by the ceremony of "laying on of hands," the service was lengthy. The pews were uncomfortably straight in the angle of the back. When the collection was taken I noticed several five dollar bills on the plate. Interior Is Plain .My impression of the interior was that it was very plain. Around the church was an old JOHN DEERE STORE 1--F20 Farmall and Cultivator 1--Model A on rubber I--Model B on rubber ' . 1--15 ft.

S. W. and all are under the management of the resettlement administration of which Rexford G. Tugwell is the head. . Read About Tugwell In my newspaper reading I had heard of Mr. Tugwell, not always in a complimentary tone. If a project was unusual, fantastic, harebrained, it was referred to as Tugwellian and folks let it go at that. But this idea of bettering the living conditions of the lower 10,000 was not original with him 01 with the present administration. It already had been done successfully in Germany, Great Britain France and Holland and somf feeble attempts had been made ir this country, by some large manufacturers such as the city of Pullman, 111., and Kohler, Wis. The coming of the better highways and the motor car have enlarged the possibility of such better housing and because it is much easier to plan an ideal city if one begins with unoccupied ground, the three cities already projected were away from a large city, where land was suitable and cheap. Streets Fit Contour In brief, the streets fit the contour of the land. There is a business and an amusement center and there is to be no slum district anywhere. Houses are built to fit low and moderate incomes but are not segregated. The names Greenbelt, Greenhills, and Greendale suggest where the emphasis is placed. A ride of a day on the railroad, through the manufacturing cities and towns · of western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, where thousands of workmen's homes are built end to end with their, neighbors and not a square foot of sod is to be seen anywhere was a startling contrast to Greenbelt and the possibilities of a planned town. As to their success, financially, 1 am informed that the "Colonial Village,'' near Washington, which has 1,000 '^units'' or homes, was originally financed by the FHA because the banks and insurance companies were afraid of the venture. It was refinanced last week by the Metropolitan Life Insurance company at 4 per cent interest, which is one-half per cent less than the original rate. use. u. i, wr. OFF.

Olson, county agent, said Wednesday. Variations in weather conditions from season to season have a direct influence on the damage likely to be caused from apple scab or codling moth, the two most destructive pests of apples, the county agent explained. Reports Collected Reports on these weather conditions and their effect on fruit diseases and insects are collected throughout the season by Iowa State college entomologists a n d pathologists. This information is compiled and forwarded to the county agent's office by S. W. Edgecombe, extension horticulturist, with suggestions as to the time and method of control for the various fruit insects and diseases. Mr. Olson advises that the following dormant sprays be applied at this time. For apples--apply a dormant spray if scale insects are present on the trunk or main limbs of the trees. A spray composed of 6^4 gallons of lime sulphur to 50 gallons of water is recommended. Dry lime sulphur may be used instead of the liquid, at the rate of 12 to lo pounds. Oil emulsion or miscible sprays can also be used to control scale insects on apple trees. The manufacturer's directions should be followed in the use of these sprays. Usually they are diluted at the rate of 1 to 3 gallon of oil to 50 gallons of water. Give Peach Disease Cure Peach leaf curl was a serious disease in southern Iowa last year. A spray composed of three gallons of liquid lime sulphur or eight pounds of the dry lime sulphur to oO gallons o£ water, applied before the buds begin to swell, will control this disease. Care must be taken to spray the peach trees before the buds begin to swell, as spraying after that time will not control the leaf curl disease. If San Jose scale is present on the trees, the quantity of lime sulphur must be raised from three gallons to 65-i gallons to 50 gal- Ions of water. Both red and black raspberries are subject to anthracnose, which is easily detected this time of year by the grayish spots on the canes. Black raspberries are usually the most severely attacked. A spray of liquid lime sulphur at the rate of three gallons in 50 gallons of water will control the disease, providing it is applied after the buds break and before the leaflets have reached a length of ·7s inches. Spraying black raspberries once will not control an- thracnose, but the application of the dormant spray and the application of a pre-blossom spray, plus two sprays after the fruit is harvested, will control the disease.
