Recommend Corn Pest Treatment Galesburfl Reglster*Mdil, (Sdfesburg, HI. Tuesday, June 2S t II Although cornborer egg-laying declined rapidly last week, some fields in an area bounded by a line from Hock Island to Peoria to QUincy may profit from treatment. To determine the need for treat' ment, entomologists at the University of Illinois College of Agriculture advise examining 50 to 100 plants for sfgns of fresh borer feeding on the whorl leaves. If 75 per cent or more of the plants show recent whorl feeding, check the tassel ratio. (To determine the ratio, measure the height of the plant with leaves extended, split the plant open and measure from the tip of the developing tassel to the base of the plant. Divide the tassel height by the plant height and multiply by 100. This is the tassel ratio.) Insecticides should not be applied until the tassel ratio is over 35, with the best time between 40 and 45. The entomologists suggest using one pound of DDT or one and a half pounds of Sevin as granules per acre for aerial applications. Sprays should contain a pound and a half of DDT per acre with the spray directed onto the upper third of the plant. The grasshopper hatch is progressing in the northern part of the state and will continue in second-growth alfalfa and red clover. The young hoppers are still confined to hibernating areas aldhg roadsides, ditch banks and fence rows. Two ounces of dieldrin or a pound and a half of toxaphene per acre should take care of them. However, these materials should not be used near fish-bearing waters or to pasture and forage used for dairy cattle or livestock fattening for slaughter. Not Expected Heavy The siege of army worms is not expected to be heavy this year. A fly lays eggs on the back of the armyworm, and when the fly maggot hatches, it burrows into the CORBY'S worm, killing it. However, if there are six or more worms per linear foot of drill row in grain, the experts suggest a quarter pound of dieldrin or a pound and a half of toxaphene per acre. Although negro bugs are not generally a serious pest, if they are numerous in grains or lawns and damage is evident (they suck sap from plant, causing leaves to wilt and die) a quarter pound of actual dieldrin per acre will halt the threat. Clover root curculio have been injuring soybeans that have followed clover plow-down. These small gray to iightbrown snout beetles eat crescent-shaped notches in the leaves and gouge holes in the stem aboveground and underground. They feed mainly at night, and are hard to find during the day. If plant loss is apparently going to be severe, one and a half pounds of actual DDT per acre will control the insects.

READ THE W/-NT ADS! entry** for your tnouqnty bear Penny, Joe and 1 have liked each other for five months. At school we saw each other every day, but now that school is out we only see each other once a week. He lives In the country and doesn't have his driver's license yet. There Is this other boy who lives in town and has his own car. He knows I like Joe, but he's asked me for dates anyhow. I've told him no, but I really want to go. Do you think It would be right for me to date this other boy since I only see Joe once a week? Joe and I aren't going steady—we Just like each other. WONDERING Dear Wondering, As long as you aren't going steady and have no definite agreement with Joe, I can see no reason for you to sit home and twiddle your thumbs. Alter all, you're only going to have one sixteenth summer in all your life. Can you afford to waste it? > Dear Penny, We need ladies to go to the County Home with us on Thurs- they really enjoy our coming. We would appreciate it so much if around 1 :30, and we leave the County Home around 4 o'clock. We give out treats and are friendly with the old people, and day afternoons. A Red Cross car will pick them up at their homes you could help us find some more ladies. They can call 342-3953. THANK YOU Dear T. Y., I can't think of a more worthwhile way to spend your Thursday afternoons. There are so many women who write me because they are lonely or haven't anything to do. I hope some of them will call you and volunteer some of their time. This would be a good opportunity for them to meet new people and still experience that warm glow that comes from doing something for someone else. Dear Penny, Our nextdoor neighbor Is a retired gentleman. Every Sunday morning at 6:30, regularly as clock-work, he warms up his power mower and goes to work right under our bedroom window. My husband works six days a week, and Sunday is the only morning us, but he pays no attention. It wouldn't be so bad if he had other things to do later in the day, but after he gets his lawn mowed (at crack of dawn), he just sits on his front porch the rest of the day. He goes to bed with the chickens and sure isn't bashful about letting us know if our children are too noisy in the yard. How can we get our point across? SLEEPY NEIGHBOR Dear S.N., If you are firmly convinced that your neighbor's actions are the result of inconsideration, give him a taste of his own medicine. Some evening when he is just settling down, wheel out your own power mower. Even if you have to use a yard light, mow your lawn, giving special attention to the area nearest your neighbor's house. One or two nights of disturbed sleep, and I'll bet he gets your point! Thinking of you . . . Penny Send your questions to Penny, in care ot the Galesburg Register-Mail.
