Summer Pruning, Fertilizers Are Keys to Chrysanthemum Success By WAYNE SIEFERT Area Extension Adviser Fall blooming chrysanthemums can be grown as short stemmed beauties if you prune down to six inch stub and thin the clump. One last pruning before the 15th will not harm the flower color or size, but will produce a snort compact clump. Prune otf the entire clump to six inch stubs. After pruning, pull out the thin stems so only five or six of the largest stems remain. LPSS competition for water, sunshine and fertilizer will result in strong growth and extra beauty. Fertilizing with 12-12-12 or a lawn fertilizer will give them an extra iwst and extra quality. Punch hf'les six inches deep near the clump on four sides and put a large teaspoon of fertilizer in each hole. Thorough watering will help the fertilizer dissolve. Occasional deep watering during July and August and your extra fertilizer will produce the finest chrysanthemums you have ever grown. Pincushion mums are a special dwarf wariety. Use the extra fertilizer and water but do not prune these dwarf varieties. Pincushion mums will be dwarf and flower in August without prunin? But extra fertilizer and water will give these extra beauty f oo. It is still not too late to divide sorr.e favorite clumps. After pruning use a shovel to cut the clump into two or three portions. Carefully transplant each portion *o a new location. You may decide to replant in t h e same location after you remove weeds and add fertilizer. A New Theory of Gardening Too much hoeing and culti- avting slows down growth of gar denia. Lots of complicated ex- periments have proven too much cultivating harms the plant by pruning the roots and disturb- in the soil. The best growth occurs when there is no cultivating. But here is the riddle! How can you get rid of weeds without hoeing and cultivating? Home gardeners are already using lots of good methods. Some use straw to mulch potatoes. The same idea will work with tomatoes, melons, peppers, etc. Landscapers use gravel and mulches to control weeds In shrubs. You can adapt the same idea to flower and vegetables by using ttack plastic, ground corncobs, compost OP a variety of other materials. Hoeing is still necessary in lots of situations, but the strategy has changed. Hoe very shallow to kill weeds but do not disturb the plant. Never deep-cultivate unless you want to prune the roots and slow down the plant. Sheinwold on Bridge Game of Nature By ALFRED SHEINWOLD Have you ever wondered what kind of bridge animal you are?

Hot Weather Breakfast Menu 7-f By MARY SUE MILLER A Lovely Mother writes: Please suggest some loW-calorie breakfast menus for my teen daughter. She's determined to lose weight this summer, although our doctor says her weight is just right. She has a summer job and goes off mornings without so much as a glass of milk. I am anxious about this. The Answer: All reducers need a severe lecture when they pass up breakfast. There is scientific proof that unless you eat breakfast you will have a hard time losing weight. For the reason that you snack in the morning and eat too much lunch. Designed for a quick morning meal with hot weather appeal, these low-cal breakfasts: Chilled cantaloupe, % peeled and thinly sliced; 1 slice lightly buttered raisin toast; 1 cup skim milk. (205 calories.) Berries of choice with skim milk, i/fc cup each; toasted corn muffin, lightly buttered. (219 calories.) Sliced orange; 1 cup bran flakes with % cup skim milk and sugar substitute. (244 calories.) Beef consomme, served on ice cubes with lemon garnish; 1 poached egg and 1 slice broiled Canadian bacon on toasted English muffin. (227 calories.) Black coffee and plain tea may be added if desired. Because the counts are so very low, whole milk may be substituted for skim milk. It is a fact that teens should consume more food at breakfast than is suggested here. But this is a case where something is better than nothing. POCKET CALOHIE COUNTER Do you really know the calorie counts of the foods you eat? Our new booklet, "Pocket Calorie Counter," tells the score at a glance. It also gives a diet plan—a way to eat and slim. For your copy, write Mary Sue Miller, in care of Alton Telegraph, enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 25 cents in coin. MISS OGLESBY this is that West refuses the first two trumps but takes the third round of trumps. Since dummy is then out of trumps West can lead his last diamond. South must use his last trump to ruff the diamond, and West eventually takes the setting trick with the nine of spades. The bridge goat ruffs the third diamond, leads a low trump to dummy's queen and returns a rtump to the king. When the bad trump break shows up our goat starts to run his winners in the side suits. West eventually ruffs with the nine of spades and takes the ace of crumps to defeat the contract. A different kind of animal— a shark—makes four spades despite the bad trump break. Our finny friend ruffs the third diamond and leads the jack and the ten of spades, carefully leaving the queen of spades in the dummy. When West refuses to take the first or second trump South takes the . ace- king of hearts and then the ace and king of clubs. South next leads the jack of hearts, and West is caught in the middle. If West ruffs with the nine of spades, dummy can overruff with the queen. If West ruffs with the ace of trumps, dummy can discard; and if West refuses to ruff, South wins with the jack of hearts and continues with the queen. No matter what West does he can get only one trump trick, and South makes his contract. Dally Question As dealer you hold: 4 K J 10 5 4. V Q J 8 7. • 4 3. * K 2. What do you say? ANSWER: Pass. You have 10 points in high cards, and 2 points for the doubletons, but this 12-point hand is not close to an opening bid. If the two black kings were aces, you would be able to open with one spade.
