FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 1929 THE CANONSBURG, PA., DAILY NOTES PAGE THIRTEEN WHAT IS ihjPM WITHOUT! FERTILIZERS FOR THE SMALL GARDEN The use of mineral fertilizers is increasing in every branch of horticulture, and nowhere more than with home gardeners. Animal manures, so long the standby, are becoming hard to get everywhere, even on the farm. At the same time there is a better understanding of the possibilities of concentrated fertilizers, and they are being made easier to get. The home gardener does not need to know a great deal about the use of fertilizers; there are no special formulas demanded by the different crops he may grow. It is not necessary to work out one combination for his root crops and another for his leaf crops, and still a third for his flowers. What he needs is a balanced fertilizer, one 'containing a fair proportion of the three elements of plant food, which are contained in fertilizers. They are nitrogen, phosphate and potash. Nitrogen is said to be chiefly effective upon leaf growth, phosphates on stem growth, and potash on fruit and llower development of plants. Rut each affects growth generally, and recent experience has emphasized the importance of supplying all three and thus providing a balauced ration for your p'nnts, if you are to have healthy ! and Xi's,-. .nis growth. A fertilizer is described by a form-1 ula consisting of three numbers with hyphens separating them, thus: 5-8-7. The first number indicates the proportion of nitrogen, or ammonia, which the mixture contains. The second stands for the proportion of phosphates, the third for the potash. Most states have laws which require that the analysis of a commercial fertilizer be printed on the bag it comes in. For the home garden a balanced fertilizer containing each of the three elements in . fair proportion is re quired. The formula 5-7-5, for example, is well balanced. For a special use emphasis may be put upon one element, as for example, lawn growing, where a formula rich in nitrogen, such as 12-S-S, would often be preferred; or a mixture for flower growing, where an extra quantity of phosphates might be needed. But or the average home garden one formula will be found to do for everything very well. In using mineral fertilizer special attention must be given to following the directions on the bag with the greatest care. It is easy to apply these quick acting fertilizers too free-, ly. They are quickly soluble and will often burn growing plants when used too freely. But when properly applied it is surprising the growth which they produce. Japan University Ball i German Actors Try Team Will Tcur U. S. Income Tax Dodge TOKIO. Japan, March 20. (INS) Meiji University's baseball team is en-route for the United States for an extensive tour during which it will cross bats with many American college nines. The first game will be played against a Japanese club in Los Angeles on April G or 7th. Meiji is one of the three strongest teams in the Inter-Varsity League in Japan. The other two are Waseda and Keio. There are 15 players to the Meiji contingent. After a tour of the United States they will go to Europe on a sightseeing tour. In addition" to the actual players, three other persons will accompany the squad to America. They are Joji Otsuki, head of the baseball department; Coach Okada and Manager 'Takizo Matsumoto.

Arrangements have been made for the Japanese to play 80 games against nines of leading American colleges and universities, and against Japanese baseball teams in the United States. .

(INS) Fritz Kcrtner and Curt Goetz, two well-known German actors, have converted themselves into stock companies. They are the only stock holders and officers of their companies, from whose earnings they allow themselves a living wage. They have taken to this unique expedient in order to escape part of the prohibitive German income tax. Under German law, they would have to pay up to fifty per cent of their personal income to the state as tax. By incorporating themselves, they pay the regular, personal income tax only on what money they actually spend, i The rest, technically representing earnings of the company, is subject only to a corporation tax. This corporation tax still amounts to 20 per cent in Germany. Curt Goetz, therefore, incorporated his company in Switzerland, where a corporation tax is almost non-existent. The net result of this procedure is that while they have to pay the regu lar, personal income ta$ on, what they iiciuuuy neeu ior nviug iney cio save a. large part of the income tax on their savings. CHICAGO, March 2!). (INS) Chicago is not a welter tf smoking pistols, violent gang wars, remorseless underworld feurls-to-the death, needled beer and "alky." It's citizens, suffering from a "crime" complex, and a desire to speak in superlatives at all times when mentioning this young giant of American metropolises, have themselves brought the name of Chicago into disrepute. Dr. Lee Alexander Stone, criminologist, makes these conclusions after a careful study of conditions here. "Chicago stands fortieth in the number of homicides per 100,000 population," Dr. Stone says. . "In ninety-three years it has grown from 100 persons to three and a quarter millions, and such growth demands a large stage, naturally resulting in a mind among its inhabitants that permits of nothing but superlatives when speaking of anything. Thus Chicago citizens have given the city a "crime complex." Uninhabited Islands The Hawaiian is'tnds, more than 2,000 miles from the nearest main land, are 20 in number, but only 9 are inhabited.
