K (AUK.) COUIUlSll NKWS [''[ill)AY, .IANUAUY I!, I'MY Earthworm Finch Its Place In Sun '' • Scientists Say f ' Lowly Worm Proves s - Beneficial To Soil I B V\VL F. E1.L1S • United Press Science Writer ', BOSTON, Jan. 2.—(UP) — The earthworm Is one of mini's best friends. • < 11 III addition to being goori lish bait the earthworm's benefit to man. Henry Hopp and Homer T. r Hopkins of the U. s. soil conservation service, believe Is to make the farm lands more productive. That ' means more and better farm crops. These two- men, who mrcde a ve- \ port of new experiments \\ilh earthworms at the I13th anmml ' piecting of the Amcricnn Association for the Advance m e n t of > (Science, were somewhat perturbed that science has done little about this field. . . • * "The subject of earthworms is a ' full-grown challenge to the soil scientist." they said. "It i;; time to taie stock of where we stand. First, it must be admitted that we do not know truly and finally the extent to which earthworms promote the fertillt of soil.' Second, we do not fenow if it is possible to increase the earthworm population b practical farming methods}-. Third, there is enough 'smoke 1 , experimentally n" cl observatlonalty, to indicate there must be some degree of 'Jire' lo thls_ earthworm idea." These two experts on soil conservation told of experiments with earthworms in crocks filled with earth and in which plants were grown. It was found that the lifetime of an earthworm is very iliort, but that the worm before death had left eggs which hatched, bringing forth a new crop of baby earthworms. s Thc decaying remains of the dead worms fertilized the soil, and in each instance there was an increase in plant production. The tests showed that the death Of the earthworms in the soil resulted in a. release of nitrate and ninonia. ' Prior to their death, the earthworms laid eggs, from which a new Cleaning House Workmen clean and diist'lhc chamber of the Hoi;-; of Ki'pri-M nlvitlves in prrparntion for the opening ol the 80th.U.

A-Bomb Best Against Land Installations WASHINGTON, Jim. 3—'UP) — 'Die House Naval Alfulrs Committee .sFiid yesterday a study of the ISikina atomic: bomb tests convinced it that the bomb Ls more effective against hind installations than fleets. At the same time, the commit- fjencration hatched,' 1 (hey said. "Therefore, the continued presence of earthworms ill .soil may increase yield if conditions are maintained that permit a normal, continued cycle, of birth and death in the earthworm population. "Sustaining their cycle of birth and death appears, so far, to be the key to using earthworms for increasing crop production." They admitted that^more information is needed on how to cultivate (he earthworms—since It is estimated thai the cold winters destroy about 15 per cent o f the worm population.
