, Me». •, 1W6 Alflono (Id.) Upper Dot Molnet List Methods Of Control For Elm Disease Chemical protection to control elm bark beetles is one of the best methods to prevent Dutch elm disease, says Kossuth County Extension Director Galen De- Valois. DDT and methorychlor used in spraying and Bidrin used as a systemic injection can control the beetles that carry the disease and can greatly reduce its incidence, says Harold Guoderson, extension entomologist at Iowa State University. DDT should be applied in the fall after the leaves have fallen. Or methoxychlor can be applied in the spring before the trees bud out. In a chemic il control program, a mist blower or a hydraulic sprayer should be used to apply a ese chemicals. For the mist blower, mix 50 gallons of 25% DDT or 25%methoxychlor emulsifiabte concentrate with 50 gallons of water. Then, apply 2 to 3 gallons of the spray per tree. If a hydraulic sprayer is used, ejght gallons of the same solution of DDT or methoxychlor should be mixed with 92 gallons of water. Approximately 15 to 20 gallons of this solution should be applied per tree. DDT is more toxic to wildlife than methoxychlor, but it's less expensive, and longer lasting on the bark, says Gander son. Sprays should be applied only when trees are barren of leaves, when temperatures are above 32 degrees, and when wind currents are less than five miles per hour. If property owners don't want to spray, they can have Bidrin applied. It can be applied only by persons trained and licensed in its use. It has the advantages of no hazard to wildlife, less influence from bad weather and no requirement of expensive application equipment. However, Bidrin is effective for only 30 days after injection, so timing is important. GundersoD adds that no matter what chemical control method is used, it is important to do an adequate job so the beetles will be killed and Dutch elm disease can be controlled.

All teachers who have a particular child in class provide the assigned teacher with an evaluation sheet for that class. The main concern in improving understanding on the part of both parents and teachers as to the progress and welfare of each individual student.

Advance Feed Grain Program Payments, '67 All farmers participating in the 1967 Feed Grain Program may receive advance 'payments at sign-up time, Fred R. McLain, chairman of the Iowa Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation (ASC) State Committee announced today. In previous programs only farms receiving diversion payments were eligible for advance payments in early spring. Half of the total .price support payment (or diversion payment for small farms) will be available for requesting farmers. "Judging from last year's pro- gram we estimate that advance payments in Iowa will exceed sixty million dollars, 1 ' said McLain. "Additional funds in the spring when farm expenses are heavy will be of great benefit to Iowa farmers. The decision to provide advance payments for all farms in the 1967 Feed Grain Program should please all lowans," he concluded.
