New Plans Drawn for Control of Corn Borer in Iowa __ -1 Revise Ways of Fighting Pest Year of Experience Results in Changes Ames, (JP) — Recommendations for controlling the European corn borer in Iowa during 1949 are different from those of 1948 in several details, Doctor H.

Mr. Heiderscheidt was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Heiderscheidt. He was born on a farm near West Bend on Jan. 30, 1891, and except lor 13 years he spent his entire life in that vicinity. On Feb. 12, 1927, he was married at the Catholic church at St. Joe to Miss Cordia Speicher of Swea City. Asks Drivers to Compensate Urged to Reckon With Others' Shortcomings Ames—"It is not persistence, but a combination of persistence and proper attitudes that keeps some drivers with accident-free records and alive," says Doctor-A. R. Lauer, director of the driver training course at Iowa State college. According to Doctor Lauer, the 2 traits may be summed up in the term "Compensation." These drivers anticipate trouble while observing the rules of the road themselves. In this way, they watch out for themselves and allow, or compensate, for the shortcomings of other drivers. The compensating driver always knows what his car will do, what his reaction times are, allows for weather, road conditions and the unexpected event. But, there are certain psychophysical factors which must also be taken into consideration. These are vision, touch, co-ordination' and muscle-sense which will allow for a quick reaction. Lauer also states that certaii; items will detract from a driver's vigilance. Among these are pain, heat, cold, hearing, hunger and fatigue. If these items enter into the driver's concentration, it will cut his- driving efficiency. If he is in pain, if he is too warm, too cold, hungry or excessively thirsty and tired, his reaction times will drop. It is the opinion of Doctor Lauer that more compensating drivers could make the Iowa highway death toll a smaller one. Compensation while driving, rest periods to ease hunger or fatigue, a change of drivers to take over if one or the other should become ill, all add up to safer highways. Almost 500,000 have been sold States. television sets in the United day. ' ily. Harris said that another year of research and experience by farmers have added data indicating a need for revised methods of fighting the borer. Work Out Plans Harris and his staff worked out the specific recommendations for Iowa following a meeting of corn borer control workers in New York. Time of applying the first treatment to control first generation borers will be later this year. Harris advises treatment when 50 egg masses are present per 100 plants in corn 35 inches or more in height. Last year, farmers were told to treat when that high an infestation was present in corn 20 or more inches tall. Harris said the reason for the change is that borers have a high death rate in small corn. A second application for first generation borers 7 to 10 days after the first is advised only if eggs continue to be present at the rate of 50 or more masses per 100 plants and if weather conditions are favorable for corn growth. Results of experiments conducted by Iowa State college workers show that treatment of second brood borers will be profitable under certain conditions. Harris says to treat second brood borers only in late planted corn and then only when 100 or more egg masses are present per 100 plants. This treatment normally will come in August. DDT Effective DDT is the most effective chemical available for controlling borers, Harris said. A minimum of 1 pound of actual DDT per acre is recommended in either spray or dust form. If applied as a spray, li to 1£ pounds per acre is best. Rate of applying dust is 1J to 1J pounds. He says that equipment now generally available will give good control. This includes farrner- owned low-pressure sprayers and custom aircraft sprayers qnd dusters. Ground dusters and high pressure ground sprayers, if available, will give effective control.
