This year the hopper population should lie at a record low. "But if landowners go slack, or Imagine trouble from grasshoppers Is just past history, they can get out of hand again overnight." Dutton said Hint desp|i/> the expected low incidence this year, full scale spraying and poisoning campaigns will be waged in many threatened areas. Most anti - grasshopper activity The pest's most dangerous "hot spot", according lo Dulton, is in Slox and ScoiiKblulf Counties of western Nebraska.

The plum curculio Is a major pesl In Arkansas peach orchards Satisfactory control depends on liming spray applications m accordance with abundance of ctir- culics,- and on locatim; any areas of heavy Infestation. Since it is Impossible to Inspect every leaf on each peach tree, Ihe practice of Jarring the trees, and counting the number of curcullos lhat fall off, has- long bec-n followed. In the past ,the entire peach tree was shaken In nicking such counts, with the curcullos falling onto a large sheet under the tree-. Several persons were required to hold a sheet large enough lo cover (-he area under a large peach tree. Otherwise, Ihe sheet had lo be placed on the ground, and In orchards with uneven terrain or grown up with weeds or cover crops, that presented new difficulties. Furthermore, when the Bheet was placed on the ground it became soiled, ami it was difficult to Jar the tree without walking on the sheel.

The (best may to clean aluminum and make It last longer Is: 1. clean thoroughly with steel wool pads. 2. Wash in hot soapy water. 3. Rinse In c| f«r, hot water and dry. If you do these things, jour aluminum utensils will remain bright and shiny n long time. Of course, there's often the problem of removing burned or dried-on foot!. In that case do not scrape with a knife or other metallic kitchen tool, she advises. If steel wool pads, with or without snap, or a metal snmtge will not, clean in a jiffy, fill the pan with water and boil for a few minutes. Then scrape loose with a wooden clothes pin or small stick. Then the pan may be I ."tourer! with a sleel wool pad and washed clean. Be cautious In using soaps »n<J cleaners containing strong alkalies. Aluminum sometimes is discolored by the minerals In water, Mrs. Hol- Iman pointed out. This discoloration Is harmless and Is easily removed. Simply arid two tablespoons of cream of tartar to each quart of water and boll i n the utensil for o to 8 minutej.

At Iht? end of the jarring period, usually 5 minutes, the bce- Ites colleclnti in the sheet are counted. Curculio abundance Is calculated by determining the number of beetles collected In n given period of lime. Usually (he operator jars the limbs on one side of a tree, and then moves on to the next tree. Dr. Wyllc designed his small framed siieet for use In his experimental studies on the control of the plum curculio, and he has been using It In that work since 1919. He reports, however, that Arkansas pench growers who have seen Ihe sheet nre beginning to adopt II In their orchards sincn they have found It nn easy one- man way to determine when to stnrt spray applications for control of curculio.
