Mr. Goeders is always the same easy-going good fellow, and he has changed little since we first knew tfantile paralysis are only a few of the many diseases due to filtrable viruses. Q.: Where did this horse disease originate? A.: Probably outbreaks of encephalomyelitis have occurred several times during the past 100 years. Most authorities feel that the widespread "Kansas Horse Disease" of 1912 was true virus- home encephalomyelitis. The present outbreak a/ppeared first in the San Joaquin valley of California in the summer of 1931. About 1932 a severe outbreak occurred on the east coast in Maryland and New Jersey. 3.: How extensive was the disease in 1937? i\.: Since the original west coast outbreak of 1931, the disease has spread until it involved all states east to the Mississippi river, also Wisconsin, and from the Canadian, provinces to the gulf^tream in Texas. On the eastern seaboard it spread as far south as Carolina, Georgia and Florida. All told, some 22 states have suffered losses. Q.: Is there any official survey on just how many cases occurred in the U. S. during 1937? A.: Dr. H. W. Schoening of the United States Bureau of Animal Industry reports that the government received authentic re- iports of 157,984 cases. One could conservatively state that at least a fifth of a million cases occurred in 1937. One midwest state reported 35,000 cases with a death loss of 7,000 head 1 . toward shielding your horses and mules from mosquitoes, biting flies, gnats, and other insect life. Stable at night, and avoid low pastures or stagnant streams streams and ponds. Carry your own buckets on the threshing crew, and it might even pay to screen barns where valuable stallions or other horses are kept. Use fly covers, and have your veterinarian write your government or state college for bulletins on fly and mosquito control. Q.: Are such methods practical or beings contracting the horse disease? A.: While this cannot be answered 'Positively, yet it may be said that ordinarily man is not susceptible to the disease. Q.: In case we do not vaccinate our horses what should we watch for if the disease is in the neighborhood? ' A.: Inspect your horses at least twice daily. Look for tendency to stumble, circle turn*, failure to drink or eat, and especially for a faint yellow discoloration of the eyeballs. Q.: What if one of my horses gets the disease? A.: Put the horse in a quiet cool place away from flies. (Jail your \etorinariiin at once. Anti-En- cephalomyelltis Serum will often give good results if used in the fliirly stages of the disease. This is the specific serum obtained ifrom horses that have been hy- perimmunixcd against the disease. Do not confuse the Serum with the Yw'ciiH! as they are entirely different and each one has its own field of usefulness. Q.: What else can I do? A.: Follow your veterinarian's instructions to the letter, and remember that all authorities agree that good nursing is extremely Important. If a man nurses a $200 horse through the sleeping sickness he has ;imdc $50 per- day. If one or more of my Horses comes down with the disease should I have my veterinarian vaccinate those that seem to be well and are not showing symptoms? A.: Yes, by all means. The results may not be as good as thoug't they had been vaccinated early, before the disease appeared. But you will still save most of the horses so vaccinated. but only two products will prevent sleeping sickness. They are the two-dose brain Vaccine and Anti-Encephalomyelitis Serum. Q.: If a lot of us in this section have our veterinarian vaccinate our horses early, will it help to prevent its spread? A.: Yes, every vaccinated horse serves as a natural barrier against the spread of the disease. Q.: Where can I obtain additional up-to-the-minute information? A.: All graduate veterinarians are well posted on encephalomyelitis and keep their knowledge abreast of late developments. Q.: During an outbreak of encephalomyelitis isn't it possible that some of my horses may sicken, or die, from other causes? A.: Yes. So it is important to have your veterinarian see such cases so that he can make proper diagnosis and institute correct treatment. BETTER CHEAPER sure? A.: Only to a small degree. The only sure and safe method of prevention is to have your veterinarian vaccinate your horses wibh the two-dose-method brain tissue vaccine developed by your own government—in the U. S. Q.: Some of the folks said that a traveling horse doctor claimed he could prevent the disease with a "shot" other than the two-dose government type vaccine. What about it? A.: During the big outbreak of last year many fakers and unlicensed quacks cashed in on the farmers' hard luck by selling them, or using, influenza bae- teterin, hemorrhagic septicemia vaccine and other products. These are good in their places, Philippines. (We are not sure .that we are spelling his name right. It may begin with "Je" instead of "Gi." We'll find out next time we call.) Q.: How is the virus of sleeping sickness spread? A.: The opinion of most research veterinarians and other scientists is that mosquitoes are the chief spreaders of the disease. In this respect it resembles human malaria.

Q.: When should we have oui horses vaccinated? A.: Nationwide surveys showed ii 1937 that of 70,000 horses given the two doses of vaccine befori the outbreak season, only 55/100 .percent failed to receive adequate protection. In other words, 994 horses out of every 1,000 head, properly vaccinated, received protection. Q.: Again I ask, when is the proper time,to have horses vaccinated? A.: The Ideal time is at least a month before the time the disease is likely to appear in your district. Late spring or early summer. Or, to put it another -way, before flies and mosquitoes are prevalent. Q.: Is such vaccination expensive? A.: No. Not when it is considered that the vaccine must be made from the brains of horses and that its use necessitates two trips on the part of your veterinarian. Q.: Will vaccination lay the horses up from work? A.: No, it usually affects them very little. Veterinarians always avoid injecting the vaccine •where collar or harness will rub.

High-lime soils, often called "white alkali," are usually so low in available potash that corn does not grow normally unless high-potash fertilizers are applied. The plants show signs of potash hunger (yellow streaking of the leaves, brown edge scorch, lodging, and chaffy ears of low feeding value.) . . . Manure applied to these soils will produce good quality corn, but it requires 10 tons of good manure to supply the quantity contained in 200 Ibs. of muriate of potash. It is a waste of the valuable nitrogen in manure to apply it on "alkali" soils just to get the benefit of the potash. See your fertilizer manufacturer or dealer about high-potash fertilizers such as 0 - 8 - 24, 0 - 9 - 27, or muriate of potash. Apply the fertilizer in the hill or row at the rate of 100 - 200 Ibs. per acre. Write us for further information and literature on how to fertilize your crops.
