Better Prison Care Inmates at Fort Madison state prison, who say they are treated better now than they were 40 years ago. credit a large porportion of the beneficial changes to Warden Percy Lainson and the late Warden Glenn Haynes, who died in 1942 after serving nine years. A recent issue of the Presidio, monthly magazine published by the prisoners, pointed to an expansion of prison buildings, progress in modern administrative methods and a change in "philosophy of prison officials" as examples of better treatment now than in 1910. Abolition of the lock step, chains and strict silence rules were cited as major improvements in conditions. A. A.

MEETINGS SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 24 Three soil conservation meetings will be held in Allamakee county on Thursday, June 24, at the following farms; Melvin Steffenson farm, Makee township, Thursday morning, June 24, 9:00 a. m.; Vivian Zoll farm, French Creek township, Thursday afternoon. June 24, 1:30 p. m.; Paul Pufahl farm, Linton township. Thursday afternoon, June 24, 1:30 p. b. These three meetings are being supported through the cooperation of the S. C. S., A. A. A., farm bureau an extension service, in complying with the governor in setting the week of June 21 as soil conservation week for Iowa. At each meeting improved methods of soil conservation practices will be observed, including strip cropping, contouring, pasture mixtures, etc. Representatives of the county There is no room in Allamakee county cornfields for the corn borer. The approximate damage in Allamakee county from the corn borer last year amounted to $129,572. Programs are now being outlined to fight this menace. Here are the main steps, as outlined by Harold Gunderson. Iowa State College extension entomologist, for stopping corn borer damage. Start watching your earliest planted corn when it reaches an average height of 18-20 inches to the tips of the longest leaves. Examine carefully three groups of 10 plants in widely separated parts of the field and count the number of egg masses on the plants in each group. When you find an average of 15 egg masses on the 30 plants (50 masses per 100 plants) make arrangements to treat the field, using one to one and one-half pounds of actual DDT per acre. Second Application Usually it js best to wait a few days before treatment unless most of the eggs are black and hatching. A second application of DDT at the same rate should be made seven to 10 days after the first treatment, if 50 white egg masses per 100 plants can still be found. Tractor-mounted ground sprayers equipped with a boom which provides three nozzles per row will give satisfactory control of first- brood borers. The spray pressure may range from 35 to 350 pounds per square inch, and all three nozzles should be adjusted to provide a maximum concentration of spray in the whorl and leaf axils. Cover all parts of the plant with DDT to kill young borers as they hatch from the eggs. May Apply as Dust The DDT may be applied as a dust, using ground dusters having two nozzles directed at each row. Here again, apply one to one and one-half pounds actual DDT per acre ' per treatment. Dusts drift badly when wind velocities rise above four miles per hour, however. Spray or dust may also be applied by airplane. .that's why and ONLY Chevrolet lilllltlllli More value—more motoring en/oy- ment for your money!
