FACT KGHT BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK,) COURIEK NEWS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1950 Abraham Orlcllus Is credited with atlas 5710 In brae!, which has adopted the Fire Safeguards On Farms Urged Prevention Officials . List Three Rules For Reducing Hazards Half of all farm ftres and their dangers, averaging 100 million dollars annually, may be -averted if three safeguards against fire are '/adopted by the nation's farm lami- '<Hcs, fire prevention officials report. '- First of the safeguards Is to coh- 'striict find maintain fram property r *o as to reduce fire hazards. Loca- 'ttoiv'of buildings is Important. To prevent the spread of fire from one "rmilding to another, It is recom- 1 mended that a minimum distance if 'lOQ feet be kept between all large 'farm structures, Protection Against Wnrts For the same reason, prevailing winds- deserve consideration. Sites of buildings should be staggered so that normal .winds cannot sparks or flames from one building to the next. Winds arc least hazarcl- •ous when blowing at right angles to a straight ling connecting buildings Fireproof building materials, such us concrete, sheet metal, and fire-' - resistant sidings and roofings, are suggested for all farm building con- 'struction. Proper maintenance requires prompt repairs, using such materials. The second safeguard against farm fires; is providing adequate fire fighting equipment. Ladders are especially important, since chimney sparks often attack roofing. Roof and ground ladders should be located within quick .walking distance of all farm .buildings. . . . ; Galvanized Fire Pall* Fire, extinguishing equipment for Individual farm use need not be expensive. Usually, ft good supply of galvanized steel fire pails offers convenient protection against .average fires.:A recommended practice is to keep one pail, filled .with water Just Inside the entrance of every farm building. It is also wise to keepislx or more galvanized steel pails near a farm's water-supply. These may be nested together when net In use. But when a fire breaks but, they are ready.for a bucket brigade. A properly eqiilp- ,ped bucket brigade,can usually extinguish* a fire, or at least prevent flames from spreading until additional help arrives. : S 1 Assurance of getting fire fighting help whenever it is needed Is .the -third safeguard. One way to do this Is to organize .a community fire de- .partment. Such an organization can be manned on a part-time basis by the neighboring farmers. Ah organization of this type' can maintain T more .effective equipment than .the Individual, farm family can, nfford. Within the radius of the organization's fire" command, every par^ tlclpa'ting farmer may equip his farm home with a simple alarm. Then when a large fire begins, he U able to summon additional manpower and equipment quickly. Fertilizer Use Study Urged by Horticulturist MAGNOLIA, Feb. 24—At tills time of year, when farmers are making plans to tnkc care of their fertilizer needs, study of fertilizer uses is In order, advises Laron E. Golden, Instructor of horticulture at State A&M College here. Golden recommends this chemical summary: Nitrogen — Gives plants a dark- green color. It increases leaf ami stem growth and causes rapid early growth. Phosphoric Acid — Stimulates early root formation and gro\ | h, It gives plants a rapid, vigorous start, phosphoric acid hastend maturity and Is especially important in seed formation. It Increases the ratio or grain and fruit to stalk. It promotes winter hardiness of full-seeded grains and other crops. Potash — Gives plants increased vigor and disease resistance, it produces strong stift stalks and Increases plumpness ol grain and seed.- It Is essential In the rormn- tlon nnd transfer of starches and sugars. Lime — Promotes early root formation and growth, Improves plant vigor and stiffness of straw. Lime aids plants in takin up other plant foods. H may neutralize some poisons produced in the plant. It encourages grain and seed production.' Nitrogen starvation — Indicatc< by pale yellow color of leaves am stunted growth In corn. It ma: cause dying of lower leaves along midrib. Phosphorous starvation — In small grains such as oats, rnilun to "stool" or "tiller." Causes splnd ly straws of stalks, purpling o leaves in young corn. Potassium .starvation — cause marginal firing of lower leaves li corn. In soybeans or cotton, It ma cause rusting or dying spots 01 areas of leaves. Sphagnum Moss in Gardens Aids In Control of Bacterial Diseases Polio Plavs Cruel Trick oh Parent NEW YORK, Feb. 24. (ft-)— Ln. sii'mmer, with'an Infantile piirnlys epidemic sweeping the Unite States, It'hart seemed like a goo idea lo Pnul. Atlas to leave li young daughter In England. She would be safer there, ou^iti - ;. So he came home from the fnmi vacation -to his grocery business Brooklyn. Ills wife am! their s year-old daughter; Mutoi Rut stayed behind. Yesterday, a big military Iran port plane, flying on a special me cy mission, brought the little gi Arkansan Given Prison Sentence HEIDLEBERO, Germany. Fob"' 24. (#T—The U. S, Army announced that U. David W. Tucker, Har- 'rison. Ark., had been convicted of manslaughter by a general court .martial and sentenced to three years in" prison. He was found guilty of killing tli r ee Germans while driving his car recklessly near Miesau in the French occupation zone. He was' also ordered dismissed from the service with forfeiture of all pay and allowances. Sphagnum Is a moss that grows*.in swamps, which lias many uses In horticulture. To amateurs, Its most Important quality Is that It is antibiotic, a sort of penicillin for the plant kingdom. Bacteria and fungi cannot live In the dried moss, which has been gathered from swamps and baked kill weed seeds. It forms a spongy ass, which holds water well, and nkes excellent humus but con- ins no plant food. It Is tnexpcn- ve, being chiefly used as packing aterial for nursery plants. In iing It for humus remember that Is very acid. Antl-biotolc qualities In Sphag- .im were discovered by U.S. gov- •nincnt workers who observed that icds grown in it never got dainp- ig-6ff, or any other fungous or actcrial disease. Seeds sprout ilckly In sphagnum, and plants row rapidly, if plant food Is sup- lied. To prevent disease the amateur in fill a flat with it, and sow the ecd. Just as In sol), in this case must supply plant food as soon the seeds begin to grow; use solimblc plant food In the ;rength recommended by the man- ifncturer. The flat should drain ;ell and the moss should be soak- d by applying water from above, so hat it remains moist. Ovcrwater- ng does no harm. Its protective powers may be ised without the need for special ceding, If after the flat has been icnrly filled with soil, a layer of iphitgnum half an Inch thick Is ipread over the top, rubbing thro- igh a sieve of one-third Inch mesh, jow the seed In the moss and over it lightly with the same material, well pressed' down. The moss should be thoroughly wet when the seed is sown, and the seed box then covered with a lane of glass. Germination will usually take place .before additional watering is necessary but the moss should not be allowed to dry out; and It must be watered on the surface, because sublrrlgatlon is not effective on this 1 , material. Plants grown In sphagnum develop henvy root systems, nnd the moss adheres to the roots much better than soil, which enables transplanting to be done witli little no loss of rot area. The weight of the moss Is much less than soil. Bucket Brigade Saves Schools NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Feb. 2-1. W—A bucket brigade of grade school boys possibly sayed the Sylvan Hills primary schools from destruction by fire yesterday.
