AUGUST 19, 1017 Bean Leaf Beetle DamageChecked InMisscoArea University Expert On Entomology Here To Inspect Fields Uv. Cliiirles Lincoln, extension entomologist of the University of Arkansas' College of Agriculture, arrived in Blythcvillc today to inspect the damage done to North Mississippi County's soybean crop Ijy the recent epidemic of bean leaf beetles and the efficiency of the spraying program, it was announced today by County Agent Keith Bilbrcy. Dr. Lincoln, Mr. Bilbrey and several North Mississippi County agriculture lenders toured several ol the farms infested with beetles, and those that have been sprayed under the program launched by the Planters Flying Service. Mr. BH- brey stated. Dr. Lincoln will visit farms in South Mississippi county tomorrow and In Crlttenden County Thursday,- the county agent said. Meanwhile, the beetle invasion continues to plague the county's No. 2 crop which is estimated at 150.000 acres. "I have received several inquiries as to what effect the I present spraying program lias had on the beetle." Mr. Bilbrey stated, "but thus tar I have been unable to furnish a definite answer. One of the objects of Dr. Lincoln's tour is to estab'ish an answcre to these questions." he said- The invasion of the infects was reported over a widespread av:a in North Mississippi County last week and in parts of South Mississippi County. This invasion is the second such infesUon reported in this county this year. The iirsl cycle appeared last month but damage ^as 'negligible. Heavy Soils Hardest Hit "I do not believe that this epidemic, is as bad as the one that hit last year's crop," Mr. Bilbrey said. Most of the damage of-the present invasion appears to be in the heavier soils, he said, 'with no beetles: yet reported from the sandy soils of Western Mississippi County in the Leachville area. The rich, heavy gumbo lands of the ATmo~- rel-Barffelcl area appear to be the worst hit. he added. Fanners of this vicinity began this week to spray their crops with DDT and cryolite in ari effort to halt the beetle epidemic. Officials of the Planters Flying Service have announced that they were spreading more, than 1500 pounds of the two types of 'poison' over Mississippi County -crops daily, Mr. Bilbrey said. He pointed out that the multicolored beetle damages soybeans in two ways The spotted bug-type insect feeds on the underside ot the leaves and the stems of the plant, eating small round holes, while" the larva-type beetles chew the roots and stems just below the surface or the soil.

Rider issued a statement adding to the gasoline mystery from his hospital bed. He suffered a broken arm in the crash. He said the B-17 took off from Kwajalcin with 3.190 gallons of gasoline. Engine Replaced at Guam "Allowing for SCO to 400 gallon being consumed in the takeoff and climb, we still had enough gasoline tor 15 hours cruising." he said. "Our flight plan called for a 12 1-2 hour flight. I don't know what happened to the gas." He said the replacement engine installed at Guam may have user more gasoline than thc others but discounted the possibility that it could have used enough to exhaust the reserve supply. Rider said Capt. K. R. Still, the pilot wlio is missing, was fc.-. gasoline into each of liic four o,<i- gines from a separate tank. "Ke didn't have ttie fuel system crossfeed, which accounts for the engines cutting • out separately.' Two of the engines had stopped before the crash landing. _ "He didn't cut out the two en gines to save gas," Rider said.
