Cftrtw, hwd of the bohifly MM) plant pathology section of the Illinois Natural History Survey. "Up In the present time there | to no known cure for Dutch ettn once a tree has bwotne of thwn aR! hifpctwl," says Dr. Carter, "and thin fs ns true today ax it has brvn sinw the now was first discovered. 5-Piece Curved "The Natural History Survey is In frequent contact with all agencies in the United States doing Scientific research in Dutch elm: disease nnd has not yet learned! of any proved cure," he continu-, ed. "Each year many chemicals are found that halt or suppress growth of the Dutch elm disease fungus under laboratory conditions j but when the fungus i sirrtroduced into trees either before or after! treatment with such chemicals, the trees die of the disease." j No Known Cure Many people claim to have found a cure for Dutch elm disease i but no one has so far presented evidence that is recognized as ./valid by responsible plant pathol-, ogists. Such evidence can be ob-; tained only from trees positively known to be infected with the disease. It must also show differences In results between trees treated and trees remaining untreated. Tets for any proposed cure must' be carried on over a period of, several years and must involve a! sufficiently large number of trees to have statistical significance. j "The only control procedures; that have proved effective are sanitation and spraying," Dr. Carter emphasizes. "Sanitation means the removal and immediate destruction of all elm material in whkh bark beetles can breed. This means that not only trees affected with Dutch elm disease but elms affected with other wilt diseases, struck by lightning, or dying or weakened from any other causes should be destroyed before elm bark beetles can breed in them." Spraying Not Sufficient Spraying is not adequate to give elm trees the required protection unless i tis accompanied by thorough sanitation. A single application of an insecticide during the dormant season (from the time the leaves are shed in the foil until buds come out in the spring) is recommended by Natural History Survey plant patbolo- gists to protect healthy elms. DDT is the insecticide most commonly used. Methoxychlor is an equally effective insecticide and is much less toxic to birds, but it is more expensive than DDT. Dr. Dan Neely, associate plant pathologist on the Natural History Survey staff, recently reported on Dutch elm disease control in municipal areas of Illinois. He says many Illinois cities that have conducted comprehensive control programs for^five or more years reported that they have held annual losses of elms to an extremely low level. Officials of a number of Chicago suburbs have said that their losses from Dutch elm disease were close to or below one-half of one per cent of the total eml population. Increased in I960 "It is interesting to note that the cases of Dutch elm disease increased in almost every city in Illinois in 1960," Dr. Neely j added. "As the sources of fungus growth and numberof bark beetle vectors increase in areas without Dutch elm disease control programs, areas with control programs are subjected to] greater stress. This stress was; especially evident in northeastern j Illinois and in some Chicago suburbs in I960." In communities where Dutch elm disease is widespread it is not necessary *° submit samples! from all suspected trees (or labor- j atory culture tests, according to Dr. Carter. *?* ^^ 14-Feet of Functional Seating!
