It May Be July But Its Christmas Tree Trimming Time Cub Infielder Good Field, But No Hit CHICAGO 'UP) — Jack LHtrell does everything in major league fashion, except hit. That's why the new Chicago Cubs shortstop tries something new every time he steps to the urday in Woodlawn hospital in Rochester. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kough and son of Logansport spent Sunday here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Crabill. Her father has been ill for sometime, but he ii imporved.

Shearing Christmas trees in July—that's what extension forester Ed Loll, center, advocated yesterday at a dcmnnstration on the Jim Black farm, east of Lgansporl. , Lott watches as Dick Wlngard, Purdue student in training at the extension office In Delphi, and W. S. Weaver, Christmas tree grower from (Pharos-Tribune Photo-Engraving.) well-iliminated, otherwise the growth formed, and salable. In one acre, and shape of the tree will be Delphi, try their hand at It. Christmas tree growing, if done a tree that will be dense in line with standards laid down by university extensions, is not a lazy man's job. This was in evidence Tuesday afternoon at a tree-shearing demonstration on the Jim Blark [arm east of LogansporL Clipping away under a beaming year, about Three Yanks Gain Semis WIMBLEDON, England (UP)— All is not lost yet for some Americans competing in the Wimbledon tennis championships. Fort he firstt imei n 32 years, the Yanks found themselves o.! the outside looking in for today's semifinals of the men's singles, which pittedd efendingc hampion ,Lew Hoard of Australia against __ _. iSven Davidson of Sweden and Cubs Manager Bob ScheMing j A S t,i cy Cooper against Nealc Fras- rales Liltrell as top grade in all c , r j n am ) a ii-Aussie affair. shewed and explained • to Carroll and Cass county spectators the pruning methods advocated by the university to grow a quality Christmas tree. Each tree, said Lptt, must be sheared by and to eventually have plate with a bat. and why he I sun, extension forester Ed Lott works overtime in the practice cage. "I hit real well the last half of the season with Portland last he said. "Must have hit .350 with about 18 home runs. But I -don't have movies of what I did then, and I've tried to hit the same way here that I did there, and it doesn't feel natural." Littrell, 26, said he used a closed stance when he had his hitting splurge with Portland to finish the season with a .307 batting averaqe, the only lime he's been over- .300 in nine years of professional baseball. "I don't know why it hasn t •worked here," he said. "I've tried to open my stance for a few games and then go back to the closed stance, but it hasn't worked yet. If I ever get to feeling natural, I'm sure I'll hit." where they are spaced live feel apart, there can be 1,742 trees. Black has about % acres. Lott noted and demonstrated four salient points of pruning; 1. Between, whorls, on the main 'vertical trunk, there mil si. be uniform distance, 10 lo 12 inches. This is done by cutting a main branch each year, starting ihe third year of growlh. At the point where the scissors snip the branch, the side branches, or laterals, bloom and spread out horizontally. 2. "Double leaders" musl be e- warped. A "double leader" is a tree with two main trunks. Priming Christmas trees piggy-back beats a step-ladder. Tuesday at the Christmas tree pruning demonstration on the Jim Black farm, eight-year-old Paul Nunn climbed aboard the shoulders of extension forester Ed Lott to snip that upper branch. Nunn is the nephew of Chris Held, of the Cass County Soil Conservation Service. Lolt averred'that Christmas tree growing was hard work but he was optomistic about the future of the business.

Only the tree that has the side branches, other side'pleasing form will get the best branches will sprout and fill in market. The most effective way any noticeable gaps that detract from the shape of the tree. This is the most effective way of getting compact form. 4. Growth of big, wide laterals is controlled by shearing. Any side branches which spread out and obstruct growth ot others can be clipped off, and thus controlled.
