However, a major menace Is the secondary borer, which can be discouraged by keeping trees in hiah vitality or by restoring them to hlsh vitality as quickly as possible Primarily, this means feeding and watering or doing those ' things needed to promote better arboreal health. Feeding Is among the more essential procedures at this time. Experts have found that augmenting the natural diet of tree friends helps them weather depleting arid periods of August and September. Scientific tests show feeding with a sepcial tree food high in nitrogen content aids trees In resisting the effects of water scarcity. Drought-weakened trees are favorite sanctuaries of the secondary borer. gust have made It difficult to put up hay.

Bartholomew, associate dir cctor of (he University of Arknnsn Agricultural Experiment Station. Various soil management piac tices were used in the experiment, most of which were conducted i the Main Agricultural Experimei fetation, at Payettcville, on a fin sandy loam soil. These included on iwo. Ihree anti four-year rotation and fertilization with various form of nitrogen, phosphorous, potas slum, and calcium, wlrte variatloi m climatic conditions were en countered in the 28 years of test mg. In Bulletin 497, "Crop Rotalio nnd Fertilization for Soil improve merit " Dr. Bartholomew present detailed results and summarize ine conclusions lo be drawn. H points out (hat results "show cro rotation alone will not malntai «op yieltis over a period of years even though uie roation Include a legume crop and improved vnr ictics are used, it was also in dlcated that one of the essential n soli Improvement is building u the organic matter content of th soil. Practices which did this re suited in improved yields, Addin phosphates proved especially i m POrtant from the standpoint o producing larger yields of legum nay crops. A direct comparison of rock phos Phate was only a third that o superphosphate. However, when rotation including a legume cro was followed for a period of tinu rock phosphate eventually bccnm about as effective as supcrphos Phate in producing large yields.

EDSON ^Continued from Page « years' Imprisonment, on conviction Mumll-Ktrj-uson Bill RipUlned In (he cases of the a top Communist leaders convicted under the Smith act of conspiracy to advocate overthrow of the government, the Mundt - Ferguson bill would have a slightly different Impuct, says Senator Mundt, All the H were open and admitted members of the Communist Party. As such they would have registered. So there would be no case against Ihem unless It could be proved that they had violated other sections of the act. The principal Mundt-Ferguson bill restriction on registered members of the Communist Party would be that they could not apply for V. S. passports and could not secure government Jobs. As to whether the government should now seek to take Alger Hiss and Judy Coplon Sacolov into custody, Senator .Mundt says he has no opinion. Sen. Homer Ferguson of Michigan, co-sponsor of the Mundt-Ferguson bill, makes several other points on its effects, If it were law today. The bill would make it a crime for any government employe to pass I government documents to a Com-' immist. Judy Coplon was accused of having jxisswl such papers to the Russian UN employe, Anlo Cubit- chev. Alger Hiss wan accused of perjury In denying that he passed government heporte u> whlttaker Chambers. If passed now, the Mundt-Ferguson bm would not touch either Judy Coplon nor Alger Hiss because their alleged offenses were committed before passage. H would be 'ex post facto," ns lawyers say. .u f!? FWson also points out that the Mundt-Ferguson bill would make easier the conviction of persons accu-cd of advocating overthrow of the u. S. government. The Smith act makes it a crime to advocate overthrow "by force and violence." The Mumlt-Fcrgiison bill would make It „ c ,j, 1JC mcrcl y to "substantially aid" advocacy ol overthrowing the government More ItarfHins nl Goodrich!
