KK;HT PRICE--THKKK CENTS Corn Borer Meat Prices Damage May Touch New WBe Extensive High Marks Battle Call Is Sounded Heavy Inflation Of Jap Beetles Also Reported: Dutch Elm Disease Appears Ear:y ::idica::o::s are that the European corn borer w:H do more sge -O the county's sugar and fie::d corn crop this year than last ear. unless weather conditions af- fee. the borer's existence, it was reported today. At the fa:«a :::::e. t:)e corn will be attacked by a great infestation of Japanese beetles, now countywide. Little corn Is in silk as yet so the beetles have not pounced upon it. Whc-ther the beetle infestation is greater than "ast year is a mailer of opinion. One corn packer said he didn't believe it was "quite as bad." Other sources said it appeared thai in this immediate vicinity there was as many or possibly more beetles than in 1947. Most Frederick residents will say that there do not appear to be any- fewer of the pests. The beetles should be on the wane by the middle of August. County Agent Her.ry R. Shoemaker said, although some of them hang on into September. The peak period is generally considered as from July 1 to the middle of Au- »ns-t ; » u;ss ! Although the beetles look worse. i sugar corn packers fear them less | than they do the borer. Two or three fieids of sugar corn, recently examined by one packer, were found to be "thoroughly infested" { with the borer, which is now at work in the sugar corK Holds. Mr. Shoemaker said the first borer brood has about run its course but a second brood will be p aiong in about ten days and this is the brood which is most feared by the corn packers and growers. A close tab is being kept on this second brood and when it is felt I that the borer i? about ready to go to work, farmers will be advised that it is time io spray. This may be in the next week or t-.vo. Once the borer gets into the corn stalks, it is too late. The borer r worms must be caught as they ·natch on the corn blades. One field corn staik was found with 19 borer -.vo'-rns inside of it. Indications are. it is said, that there will be considerable spraying in corn fields. Farmers appear interested and a number of spraining rigs, as well as aerial spraying apparatus. = e em to be available. DDT solutions are used for I both the borer and the beetle. U I msy be possible to spray for both l ^ a t the same time. ·9 Potatoes are reported cop.r-'ider- | ably damaged in many sections by I the early borer brooc. At the same time, shrubbery. {lowers, grapes, many shade tress ar.d even some garden vegetables are being attacked by the beetles, which come in great swarms in the current warm, dry weather. Grape arbors are particularly devoured fay the ir.sects. There is much spraying I by hand and by commercial in-' I tereots on trees and shrubbery ·phere. | ' Many beetle traps have been I leased to residents and they are I found crammed ·.vith the insects. Roadside sprayir.2 under direction of a committee which is seeking to decimate the insect? is killing thousands. Nearly all county roads will be traversed. It can be hoped that the beetles this year will be near their peak in the countv. It is reported that the insects have virtually deoart- . ed from some areas ir. northern ^"states where they were very ba-d six or seven vears aso. Diitch Elm Disease Here There were reoorts today that the Dutch Eim disease had made its appearance :n Frederick and that Forn.e trees were in very bad shape. Mr. Shoemaker said he was unable to confirm these reports. Ke said he believes that the arshids which caused leaves to fall in great numbers from some shade trees this spring have about run their course- ; May Get Worse; No Relief In Sight For Consumer; May Be Down Next Year Chicago. July 13 .'--'.Vith livestock pounding out new price records every few days, no isnmedia- ate drop in the high cost of living on meat was seen today. Both private trade experts and the Agriculture Department agreed the near future outlook offered slight hope for the consumer. If anything, prices probably will go higher later this summer, they said. The prospect for lower prices next year was calied encouraging, although largely hinged on the hope of a bumper corn crop this autumn. Hog prices at Chicago yesterday equaled their all time record of S30.50 s hundred pounds. A new record of $30.25 was made at East St. Louis. III. Other midwestern · markets rang up prices at about all time oeaks- Pietty much the same story was . told in cattle and sheep. East St. ! Louis had an al! time record for choice steers at 538.75. Steers at Chicago touched $40. equalling the July record set last week. Lambs . also were bringing the highest ; nrice for any Ji-K- in historv at : S32. In Sioux City. la., a load of 64 · steers averaging i.Oll pounds sold for S33 per hundredweight to set a world record for a single sale of feeder cattle. The gross price paid . for the 64 animals was ?25.324.10. George Dressier, secretary of, the National Retail Meat Dealers Association, said the normal summer · falling off ip demand for meat had appeared this year but wasn't big enough to make up for the shortage in me^t production. "Price? probablv are the highest · on record at retail shops." Dressier . admitted. A? far as consumer resistance wr.-; concerned. Dressier said some housewives backed away from high nrices but others went right on buying regardless of what the price was. Hager House To Go Up Al Public Sale Kajrerstowr..

Permits issued by the city engineer showed total valuation of construction to be 51.053.110 as of June 30. indicating that 1948 will probably produce the largest construction figure in the history of the city. Valuation figures are considered to be generally low by officials so- the total will undoubtedly be higher than is shown by the permits. Total construction in 1947 was 5967.235. In 1945. it was S509.694. The 1948 figures, of course, reflect the higher cost of construction these days. A million dollar figure now wouldn't compare to a figure ot say S750.000 in the prewar days. A 55300.000 permit for the con- -truction of the apartment units ir Watkins Acres pushed the 1948 to- ial past the million dollar mark. However. 1947 had a near-comparable figure in the nermit for the new gymnasium at Hood College. .June's- total authorized construction amounted to S45I.735. which is as much as iva? approved for a whole year during the war.

No dark horse but an old and honored wheelhorse of the Mew Deal--Sen. Albe:i William Barkley --rode to the rescue wf the torpid Democratic national convention. l:i 6S stirring minutes of o!«i- fa:.hiotied siedge ha:nnier oratur ! ast !iij;hl he welded the quarrei- ;f.K. delegates together u a tremendous outburst of party enthusiasm. They ssve him n l!$-mi:tu'.e ovation. It was the first time the Democrats had fouixi anything ?h?y could agree to cheer--or be cheerful abou!. I: was an antique bugle Barkley blew and an old but popular tune--the call to battle. !t i. the ca!i that through the ages has made men bury their differences ?nd faU i:s line. As he stood there, a chunky, powerful man in a white linen suit, he was a kind of elderly David trying with verbal music to win King Sau!--in this case the Democratic convention -- back from black depression to hopeful action. And he sang his summons to political war like a skilled minstrel who knows his tale well. This was the third time in his IonTM career he had sounded the keynote battle cry at a national convention. He spoke from a rostrum behind which towered the portrait of Franklin Delano Roosevelt--the man he had served so long and who once nelped name him as his captain in a letter beginning "Dear Alben." Like any veteran commander who knows that no army wins by internal weakness, he stressed Democratic claims of achievement rather than convention differences. His powerful, eloquence hit at the Republican enemy time after time, but he never mentioned the two key words that have split this convention like a raw. red wound--civil rights. But he touched upon the issue in interpreting Thomas ' Jefferson's statement in the Declaration of Independence that among the self- evident truths of mankind is the proposition that all men are created "equal. And the old man from Kentucky went down the line for President Truman, just as he had for President Roosevelt, even after he broke with him. The delegates cheered repeatedly his praise of the New Deal record and his quips at the Republicans. They laughed uproariously wher» he jibed that "a bureaucrat is ?. Democrat who holds some office thai a Republican wants" and "the Republican politicians have not been cioser io Lincoln in two generations than to quote him." When he finished with a prayer, me convention erupted in plannecl and unplanned tribute. The rebel yells broke out. and for nearly hai/ an hour the band played Dixie rr.f- ?ic. "The Missouri Waltz." anci "The Sidewalks of New York." There was camaraderie there in the aisles, and cheers and weeping, and James Roosevelt sang with the crowd--"My Old Kentucky Home." He went to the rostrum and held high the hand of his father's old fellow campaigner- The crowd loved it.
