STERLING DAILY GAZETTE* STEELING, ILLINOIS November 6 141 Find Corn Borer In Northern Part Whiteside County Invasion Feared Within Two Years As Pest Multiplies A:tho-.i?h not officially stated «< havinit the European corn horfr In Whlte<ide county, (hi.' danerrou* plant insert is no*' in thr northern part of the countv. according to farmers who Hvc near the Carroll county linf. In the latter countv. as we'll a,< Le* «nd Ogle, the borer is unusuallv numerous. \V. p Flint. ^ntomolojjiM of the University of Illinois, has iwnipd a warning to farmfrs that unless control methods are adopted immediately, the infestation may assume serious proportions. In 1939 the corn borer was discovered In five northern counties. Latest reports from field *cout« of the department of agriculture rereal that 43 counties have become infested. Entomologist Flint w»id tl*re was no sever* damage to th« corn crop this year by the pest, and added that no aeriou* damage was likely to occur next year. Reports Indicate, however, that the borer producing two generations a year and this rapid multiplication under favorable weather conditions may eventually apel! disaster for corn producers unless some action is taken. In one stage of its existence the borer is a moth capable of flying 15 or 30 miles. One prominent Gtnesee farmer states that these moths were so thick in his field at times a short time ago that it was difficult to get through without getting covered with them. The borer works up from the bottom of the stalk, inside, and eventually Into the ear. where it eats •t the kernel, thus spelling the corn. Flint advises all farmers to plow under all crop refuse and weeds In or Minimum charge Rate, l&c pw nn^er thi» heading a mlnljwtrra of fir* of ' m»y Singers of Carthige College Will Appear Af Sf.

GRAIN REVIEW CHICAGO—(AP)—Wheat prices soared about three cents a bushel and soybeans more than eight cents today as the grain market responded to Increased buying which traders said was inspired by international developments and a return of wet weather. Reports that Russia was inquiring about the possibility of importing some, wheat from the U. «.. and news regarding operation of German submarines off Newfoundland and of Japanese-American relations were cited as factors which stimulated buying. There were fresh reports of delayed corn and soybean harvesting and the forecast indicated unfavorable weather would continue. ' Receipts were: Wheat II oars, earn 115. c»ts U. Farmers AND Truckers Wheat closed 24 to 3«; cents higher than yesterday. "December (1.17 to 11.164, May 11.22'»-'*: corn 14 to 14 up. December 78H-4. May M4-V. oats 14 to 1H higher; rye 2% to 34 higher; soybeans 8 cents higher. The advance in beans, which carried December contracts to 81.C7S. was the maximum permitted in one session. Prices dosed at the per- mlssable highs, with trade virtually at a standstill because buyers could bid no higher and sellers were reluctant to dispose of contracts. The action of soybeans, which traders blamed largely on abort covering operations, with heavy stop loss orders forced into execution on the advance, produced sympathetic buying in other pits. Harvesting of beans is weeks behind schedule^ in most Important producing sections and estimates of production have been lowered compared with what they were a month ago.
