He located thr> den and found a fox, with nine pups. In addition to the dead duck, Mr. Helmick found the remains of three or four lambs, three pigs, several rabbits and pheasants, a mud-hen and chickens. Some Towns Will Fight Mosquitoes If hungry mosquitoes took the pleasure out of your sitting in the yard or walking in the garden last summer, take hope. Science ma}give you a better weapon against them. Experience in controlling mosquitoes with DDT during 1947 shows that it is possible to reduce their numbers sharply. Harold Gunderson, Iowa State College entomologist, says it is best to use a 10 percent DDT dust, or a spray with two to four tablespoons of 50 percent DDT wettablc powder in one gallon of water. Cover the hedges,'shrubs and small trees in your yard, and you can reduce the mosquito count for at least a week, Gunderson says. Community Cooperation Of course, other mosquitoes will drift it from outside the yard during the evening. For that reason, community copcration in which everyone sprays or dusts his premises is a desirable thing. The larger the area treated, the fewer the mosquitoes. For individual property owners a garden dust gun or sprayer works well. One such outfit may be used by a number of persons in a neighborhood. Some towns in Iowa have pretty well freed their parks of mosquitoes by using an orchard sprayer to drift the DDT around all foliage in the park. Webster City was one town which had success with this method. Airplanes Worked Some 10 to 20 Iowa cities went at the mosquito problem on a community basis, using an airplane to dust large areas with DDT. Iowa towns that reported favorably on this method were Ottumwa. Marshalltown, Oskaloosa and Marengo. Cost of applying the recommended two to 10 pounds of DDT per acre by this method usually runs about 25 cents to 50 cents per acre, and the effect will last 12 to 18 days. By applying only a small amount of DDT, it is virtually certain that the only living things to be killed will be flies and mosquitoes, according to Gunderson. He pointed out that malaria- carrying mosquitoes are found in 94 of Iowa's 99 counties. In addition, mosquitoes carry both equine and human encephalitis (sleeping sickness.) A deep sincerity is sure of success, for God takes care of it.— Mary Baker Eddy. VOTE. FOR Arthur W.
