Just organized here is the Builders Glub, with the stated purpose of trying to get industry for Collingsworth county. This organization needs and deserves the backing of everyone who has the interest of pollings worth at heart—backing in the form of your time and thought and work and ideas and the small monthly dues that will be charged. These dues are the only financial support the club will have. The men in it are for the most part our younger business leaders. They want to stay in Wellington and not follow their brothers and cousins to some city to make a living. . Everyone in it is going to have to work, but no one is going to be pressured to join. As one member said, "If you get your feelings hurt easy, then it's not for you. If you are given a job to do and you don't do it, you can expect to be replaced by somebody who will." This week, also, we should remember that Wellington does have several industries, home grown by our own men . . . -as well as those other businesses such as cotton gins which are considered industrial and are a part of our life. Rummel Advises Treatment for Fruit Trees LUBBOOK. — Soaile insects comprise some of tlhe most important pests of fruit trees, shade trees, shrub® and greenhouse plants. These insects do not resemble ordinary insects, reports Don Rummel, area extension entomologist. Their bodies are covered with a waxy or resinous type scale. The immature forms (or nymphs) are fairly active insects and are known as crawlers. Scales are most often found on the leaves, stems or fruit of plants, although some species infest the roots. Injury results' from the scales sucking juices from the plant tissues. Heavy scale infestation may result in the death of large branches or entire trees. A number of scale insects are known to occur in Texas, says Rummel. The most common are San Jose, white peach, oyster shell, pin-needle, obscure, euonymus* and brown soft scale. Adult scales are difficult to control with insecticides. However, insecticides may (be applied during the growing season to control the crawlers and! .prevent infestation buildups. Diazinon 25% emulsifiable concentrate, melathion 50% e- mulsifiable concentrate or 25% wettable powder, and Dimeth- oate 43.5% enruilsifiable concentrate will give good control during the growing season; Two or more applications should be made at two-week intervals, according to manufacturers' di- rections. A miscible oil for summer sprays) at the rate of % pint per five gallons of water may be used as a carrier for any of the recommended insecticides and will usually improve control. Misciible oils can also be applied during the winter when plants are in complete dormancy. The recommended application rate is 3^ gallons oil per 100 gallons water. For a smaller mix, use IMs pints oil in five gallons water. A granular systemic insecticide, Di-Syston, has given good control of sucking insects on plants, including some species of scales. The chemical is applied to the soil, absorbed by the plants, and kills sucking insects feeding on the plant juices. To avoid injury to humans and to plants, insecticides should be mixed and applied- according to the manufacturer's directions and atppliecl only at the recommended dosage, the entomologist cautions. Contact your county agricultural agents office for additional information and Extension leaflets on scale control.

CROSSROADS REPORT Dear Editor: I see where our people in charge of self-sabotage have offered to burn 480 of our big bombers, if the Russians will play-like they are going to burn some of theirs. Now my over-smart neighbor says this is a projper move, because the U.S. is now so oiver- armed that all the other countries in the world are getting bo feel over-inferior. But it looks like destroying our own planes is a lot of unnecessary trouble, because we can just wait a while and the Reds will have enough of them shot down to keep us from getting over-powerful. Anyhow, the Russians keep on shooting down our fliers, and swapping them iback to us for grovels, and wheat, and other benefits. Time was, of course, when this kind of prank would have made us mad, and we would have quit doing business with the perpetrator nation, but that was back before we' got sophisticated and the world got so brother-lovely. <• • My siicker-seeker neighbor says the Reds have got a paying racket here, and he is thinking about ttrying out this tactic, by capturing some of his neighbor's wandering kids, and trading -them back to him for an armload of TV dinners. I see where Mr. Henry Cabot Lodge whipped all of the other candidates for President in the New Hampshire primary, Avhi living in Saigon and keeping his personal mouth shut. If we're lucky, Mr. Lodge's success story might lead to an all-new and improved style of political campaigning that would revolutionize the business. •Might even establish a custom that would require all candidates to high-tail it for some far-away country and hide out until after the elections, and then only the winners couldi come back.

K PORTER VISIT COME PRAY threats and samples of violence which it's said will Ibe used if Congress dallies much more about passing the Civil Rights Eradication bill. My modernist neighbor says threatening to throw violence fits is the 20th Century way to get laws (passed, and is more forwardish than, the old 19th Century method, where Statesmen just messed around arguing about the merits of a measure. He says the advantage to this system of legislating is mainly that with a mob threat STERILE FRUIT FLIES FROM MEXICO Agriculture Commissioner of Texas, John White, said Rio Grande Valley citi-us farmers are being "invaded" by sterilized fruit flies from Mexico, for a scientific study of their traveling habits. in his back, a Congressman doesn't have to be smart to know bow to vote.
