CROMIK Farm Ji"<m-stt>r, Soiit.hwosti;rn Connecticut So many readers have expressed interest in the subject of girdling weed trees in their woodlots, casually mentioned several times in previous farm forestry articles, that I thought it best to discuss it here in some detail. Girdling was practiced by the Indians long bcforo tho coming of the white man. They bruised the bark in a ring about the trunks of trees with stone hammers to secure space and sunlight for their small crops of maize. Within a yenr or two the girdled trees would be dead and the. mni?.o could be tri-o\vn iimic! tho standing- trunks. 'L'hu curly colonists followed this same practice, using axes. In forestry. likewise, 1 when: troea arc unduly crowded and the thinnings would be unsaleable, It is cheaper, neuter in appearance mid causes less inlorforence with forest life •if weed trees nro girdled, in this way speeding tip the growth of the remaining "quality" or "crop" trees. Girdling is done by nicking with .a sharp axe a "collar-like" ring, or in thick-barked trees a continuous chipped notch, about the trunk of tho Iree, tit waist height. This severs the bark, the cambium layer of growth cells, and a. few layers of sapwood. The work can be done in any season of year. As tho good future crop trees and undergrowth- of small trainer trees und shrubbery arc loft untouched, leaving the ground in partial Kluulo, the girdled trees t!o not sprout anew from their roots. In a year or so they die, They then 1 slowly crumple away, from the top down and as one ulieiu Maid, "return ns plant food to the earth from whence they came." -Meanwhile these girdlr;d trees furnish suslor.ance and shelter to a normal bird, animal and insect . life that customarily suffers when ovcry dead stick and twig is cleaned out of a woodlot. Tree girdling is really inter-esL- infr work, li requires observation and judgment. It is easy enough lu be curried on !>y persons who would not h a v e the physical strength to make progress in felling trees, It is not really time- consuming for instance, I have in official acreage tests averaged at the rate of girdling one C- to 10- inch diameter I.roe per minute: and I feel certain that any owner of woodland, man or woman, or any hoy or girl of 15, can be quickly trained to select and girdle the weed trees in a waodlot at the rate of onr aero per day. Usually, only 25 10 100 trees nregirdlod per aero, with 200 to 500 I roes per acre left standing. It is best to be con- I sorvative in girdling, confining-the | O(>«r;il/)n to crooked, forked, or PRECIOUS EYESIGHT IN DANGER! S TUDY this picture carefully. Here arc two young people un- Jkiiowiiigly c;ui*!iig damage to tlicir precious eyes. They are -what many thousands of other school children do to coii« triluite to llie alarming situation of defective eyesight among young folks. They arc injuring their eyes because of the glare of improperly diffused light. The lamp is a pretty one and giving sufficient illumination. But its* direct light from hare bulbs is reflected from reading surfaces wiih glaring results that cause eyestraiii. If this lamp were raised to a higher level and had a light-diffusing bowl these school children could study better ill the soft diffused light without danger to tlicir eyes. IVow is the time lo check over your home lighting. See that it is arranged to safeguard eyesight. Clean the bulbs and shades so that you get the full benefit of the available illumination. Prevent glare and waste. If you need light diffusers we still have on hand a stock of various adapters for your present fixtures and complete units designed to improve home lighting.

During this process,-your food can Jose from 5 per cent to 30 per cent of the energy potential it hnd on your plate. Moral: Eat a better breakfast to do a bigger job.

Your gastro-intestinal canal is your fuel tank; ic holds the food, or fuel, you need to get you through the day. That's why you may slow down or stall on a skimpy breakfast. That's why you purr through the morning's work at top speed a<id efficiency when you've eaten a good breakfast. That's why you need a better breakfast to do a better job. means breaking your fast Of all your meals, your breakfast follows your longest period of fasting. You average only 5 hours between breakfast and lunch, only 6 hours between lunch and dinner, but a full 12 hours between dinner and broakfost the following morning. So—breakyout fast with a breakfast that givos T you a break, "not a brake. Listen to your muscles work When you work, your muscles contract. When muscles contract they use up netvous energy, consume food, produce acid, create fatigue. For proof, plnce a finger tip in each ear. Tighten your jaw muscles by clenching your teeth. The roaring noise you hear is your jaw muscles vibrating as they work. To counteract muscle fatigue, eat better breakfasts and . . . learn to relax.
