Bad News for Bollworm in Texas Fields COLLEGE STATION.— Two of the country's most destructive insects, the cabbage looper and cotton 'bollworm, have been successfully controlled by mass produced insect viruses that are harmless to man. Both insects are well known pests in Texas and as John Thomas, entomologist for Texas Agricultural Extension Service iputs it, just ask any Texas cotton producer about their resistance to chemical controls. Tests conducted by the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service, much of the work done at the research center at Brownsville, indicate that early-season spray applications of virus will artificially induce epidemics' and control tihe insects before they can damage crops, explains 'Thomas. Work is now underway to determine timing, rates and frequency of application of the -viruses. Studies indicate only a small amount of insect virus material is needed for effective control. The scientists believe a man probably could hold enough powdered cabbage loop- er virus concentrate on the nail •of his smalt finger to treat five acres. They also believe the looper and bollworm viruses can be produced at prices farmers can .afford. But, adds, Thomas, artificially produced viruses for insect control are still experimental materials and none are available for use by the public. Research has established "these -points: both viruses are highly specific. One infects only the cabbage looper. The other bolhvorms and the closely related tobacco budworm. Both viruses are harmless to man, .animals and plants. 'Fungi, ibac- teria, insect parasites or ipred- ators, and other natural enemies of the looper and boll- Avorm are not harmed. Objectionable residues do not occur on treated crops; in fact, ineffective forms of the viruses occur naturally on crops at•tacked by these two insects. Thomas says scientists have long known the potential of viruses for biological control of insects. Recently developed mass-producing techniques however, make it possible to exploit these two viruses, Thom- .as says.

The church membership increase and the country's population growth are both given as 1.6% in the annual compilation of church statistics. The tabulation shows that 117,946,002 Americans are members of churches, synagogues, or other was 16%. The percentage rose to 23% in 1860, but declined to 18% in 1870, recovering only in the last decade of the century when the figure for 1890 is listed as 22% and for 1900 as 36%. The largest increase in any decade of the current century was registered in the war-dominated 40's when church membership increased from 49% in 1940 to 57% in 1950. |By contrast, there was no increase in the decade of the first World War, church memberships being fixed at 43% from 1910. to 1920.

Failures Due to Weaknesses in Management COLLEGE STATION.— According to business reports, per cent of all business, failures are due to weaknesses in management, says Kenneth Wolf, agri-business economist with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. Agribusiness firms, like all other businesses, are finding that managers must continually 'become more skilled if they are to solve the ever-increasing problems which they face, reports Wolf. Management is the only unique feature which any business firm can expect to 'have that no competitor can exactly copy or duplicate, he •adds. The Bureau of [Business Research in Austin, reports Tex•as business activity during a recent month was down by 4% but despite this, the index of 'business activity in the state lor the first three quarters of 1963 registered a gain of 4.5% over the same period of 1962, says Wolf! These analyses indicate that although the overall business trend is favorable, there are rough spots which can toe overcome only through better management skills, he continues. A recent comprehensive study made in Texas concerning business practices emphasizes the need for more formalized long-range planning by businessmen to avoid the pitfalls of random decision making. The days of operating a business from the "hip pocket" are gone, according to Wolf. He explains that the question each agribusiness firm manager must answer before getting involved in details is: "Where do I want my business to ibe in 1970, and what specific programs do I have to set up to help me get there?" Cost of Stock Feeding Rises It's expensive to farm. A survey of 76 hog^beef fattening operations in the Corn Belt showed farm capital Jan. 1, 1963 averaged $98,814, with $66,000 of this in lands and buildings. Farms surveyed ranged from 160 to 640 acres, 100 to 300 hogs, 30 to 150 feeder cattle fattened, and less than 10 milk cows. They represent 63.4% of the total •population, the same as a year ago, but slightly less than the all-time high of 63.6% recorded in 1960. The report traces church membership as .percentage of population since 1850 when it WHO, ME?
