James Swenka claims Mystery farm picture The mystery farm that appeared in the Feb. 15 issue of the LEADER has been identified by the tenant, James Swenka. of RR.2 Fayette. The 240 acre farm is located two miles west and four miles north of Fayette. The Swenka's have lived on the farm, known as Dr. Proctor's farm, for the past five years. Two new feed floors, a pole cattle shed and hog house have been recent additions to the farm. James and his wife Roxie were married in 1954. They are the parents of two children, Jacque Ann, five, and Steven, two. Mr, and Mrs. Swenka are members of the Farm Bureau, and the First Baptist church. They raise hogs and holstein dairy cattle. ible. Gunderson stresses. Ho points out that it is difficult to got sufficient insecticide into all twig crotches of a tree 50 to 75 feet tall. However, Gunderson says, this should not deter home owners or communities from spraying selected valuable elms. Ministers must file For Social Security "April 1C is an important dead line for many of us, but especially for ministers who want social security credit for their earning," said Earl T. Johnson, district manager of the Waterloo social security office. "Ministers who have not yet taken action and who do wish to participate in the social security program must indicate so by filing a waiver certificate with the local Internal Revenue Service office before April 1C." Mr. Johnson emphasized that the derision to participate in the social security program is up to the ministers, but that his office »vill be glail to answer any questions or furnish information which may be helpful in making this decision. A leaflet which explains how ministers can obtain social security coverage is available from the social security office at Waterloo, or may be obtained by calling the office at Adams-4-15l>4. Ask for leaflet 33j. "As of early last year, about seventy percent of the full-time ministers who are eligible for social security coverage have elected to have their earnings credited toward future old-age, survivors, and disability insurance benefits," says Mr. Johnson, quoting a report of the Social Security Admin- County to face Decision on Dutch Elm disease control Communities and home owners in Fayette County will have to decide soon on procedures they will use to protect elm trees against Dutch Elm disease, says M. C. Wangsness, Fayette county extension director. Dutch Elm disease is spread by the European Elm Bark Beetle Iowa State University Extension Entomologist Harold Gunderson says. This beetle lays its eggs under the bark of recently dead or dying elm trees. The larvae excavate feeding tunnels in the cambium layer in the fall and emerge as adults after April 15. If the host tree is infected with Dutch Elm disease the bodies of the beetles become covered with the sticky spores of the disease fungus as they move through the feeding tunnels. After the beetles leave the host tree they fly to other elms and feed in the crotches of twigs the tree produced last year. As they eat through the bark some of the spores are rubbed off and carried away by the tree's water conducting vessels, inoculating the tree with Dutch Elm disease. An application of a residual spray, such as methoxychlor, before the buds begin to swell will aid in controlling bark beetles, Gunderson says. The chemical remains effective for six to eight weeks and kills bark beetles as they crawl over or feed on treated bark. It is effective and "much less" toxic to birds that DDT. The spray must be applied when the temperature is above freezing and every effort should be made to insure a thorough application. Spraying should not be attempted when the wind is stronger than three to five miles per hour. Either a hydraulic sprayer or mist blower will do a satisfactory job, providing it has sufficient power to get the insecticide to the top of the trees.
