TWELVE EVENING TIMES. CUMBERLAND, TUESDAY, MAY 21, 1957 Some Sectors Of Maryland Needing Rain COLLKCE PARK. Md. wv Drought-breaking rains brightened! prospects for most Maryland and' Delaware farmers last week end] but more rain is urgently needed' in Southern Maryland. The Maryland-Delaware Crop and Weather Report said considerable damage already had been done, particularly lo strawberries which are now at the peak o[ harvest on the lower Delmar Peninsula. Newly transplanted tomatoes and green peas also suffered from the prolonged dry spell and rapid deterioration was noted in pastures and some of the small grains. A decline in condition of the hay crops also was reported although Ihe dry soil provided ideal conditions for harvesting hay. The crop and weather reporters said prospects for barley and oats, now beginning lo ripen in Southern Maryland, and on the lower Shore were seriously affected by the lingering drought. Elsewhere, these grains were progressing normally. Wheat, maturing later, has not yet been seriously hurt by the dry weather and is now headed in the southern two-thirds of the two states.
