TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA, PAGE THREE. FOREIGN ENEMIES MORE DANGEROUS THAN SUBMARINES Anported Injects ami Plant Dls. eases C»»se Loss of 1500,. 009 a Year. U MOSTLY IN FOODSTUFFS Ktt-s Nearly -{,000000 STM Sap- U«d With rr*vi»loB»; Importation Sh»»ltl Mop Aaericu V.rowers Able ·*· Fr«»««at* A»y Plants We °ced. It It were announced that 500 food- ladeu ships valued at 41,000,000 each had been sunk by submarines, the people would be appalled^ Especially would that be true at this time ot food ' ^shortage. But, the officials ot the Uni- ''ted States Department ot Agriculture tell us that conservatively estimated 1500,000,000 is the loss caused yearly / to our form, orchard and .forest crops by imported Insects. ,yet -we continue to import plants on which these peats come into tie country- .This loss of $500,000,000 annually -is;mostly food stus, which, would keep an army of nearly 4,000,000 men continually 5 up. pUed with provisions. Tiiese losses are so stupendous and so vital at this .time that further importation of ornamental plants should cease at once,. as a war measure, il {or no other reason. ; According' to a recent report of the ... Federal Horticultural Board of the United States Department of Agrir Jfcultare, 103 insects and 116 plant .-diseases which might prove harmful · T o American plants were detected in .that year on imported plant materials : by Federal and S'tate Inspectors^ These -inspectors admit is impossible . : to detect all of these insects and dis- ^ eases, and this accounts for the dis- \*c*T*ry*ev'ery year of several new r pefits established here. The valne ot these imported plants seldom exceeds $5,500,000 in any year, yet we are told by certain'im- porters that it would be a great hardship on the country*!! this importation were to be stopped. The facts · show that to continue such importation is "a hardship many times greater. ' and all out of proportion to tie gain. Based on the growth and value of our nursery and floricultural establishments as. recorded by the census of 1910 these establishments are worth today, nearly $90,000,000. ,tt would seem that these nurseries could grow Ibis comparatively 'small amount of material that vre import. Our leading hortic'uturists, agriculturists -* and nurserymen agree that we can prop- igate any plant in this country that we now import. We would keep the- money at home that now goes abroa'd and we would not endanger our native plants by' these foreign pests. The Federal Bureau of Entomology has prepared '· list of 5,000 insects alone not to^'speak of the large number or plqat' diseases, which has not yet been compiled, that would be harmful to our native plants, but which have not yet readied here. Many of thtse are sure to come if we continue to bring in plants which are the natural, carriers of these pesw. ^Ks are already spending; .more n»ri«y yearly,- fighting · imported insects and plant diseases, than the value of all the plants imported and the lass caused by these imported plant enemies is over one hundred times the value of these importation.-,. Other countries have legislated against imported plants but the United States continues to be a dumping ground for these pests. Our system is haphaz- zard; endangers'our resources, and is unjust to the producers of oar food. The Hessian Fly. Alfalfa Weevil, San Jose. Scale. Codling Moth, Citrus Canker. Chestnut Blight! Pine Blister Rust. Gypsy Moth, Brown-Tail Moth and Leopard Moth are only a few of the' well known insects and diseases that are costing the country millions each year. There are scores of grubs, blights, wood and bark bores gnawing away at our resources. There is only way to avoid increasing .this tremendous burden anil that is'the prohibition of importation .of plant materials. A Senate bill now before Congress seeks to do this a"d It should have the support ot ever? j producer and consumer of food stuffs T^Tille it will prohibit the wholesale ·importation of plants it does not prevent ns from obtaining new plants for propagating purposes through the Department of · Agriculture.
