Timely Farm Questions
Answered at State College
Question ? What temperature
should be maintained iu the
brooder house during the first
Answer? The heat should be
regulated so as to maintain a
temperature of 98 degrees at the
outer edge of the canopy and on
a level with the chicks' head for
the first week. This should be
reduced five degrees each day uu
till the sixth week. Avoid run
ning the brooder at a sub-normal
temperature as the crowding will
make chicks very susceptible to
colds. The brooder should be
started ttiree days beiore the
chicks are to be placed in the
house so that the operator may
make any required adjustments.
Question ? How can I control
flea beetles in tobacco plant beds?
Answer ? A trap bed built
around the main bed will give ex
cellent results. A diagram show
ing how to build this trap bed
with fnll directions as to con
struction are given in Extension
Circular No. 174 on Control of
Tobacco Insects and a copy will

the bed with mixture of one
pound of Paris gr<ten and five

plied at the rate of one-half pouod
to each 100 square yards of bed.
The application should be made
when i tie plants are dry as they
are easily bnrned when moist
with dew or raiu.
Question ? What can I do for

Answer ? This trouble, iu all
probability, is caused by a defi

World Exposition Already
Growing Up; Seeks Active
Participation of State
NEW YORK. (Special).? The New
fork World'* Fair. Id which every state
In the nation must inevitably take small
gr prominent part, is out of its Infancy.
Preparatory construction goes on night
and day at the Flushing Meadow Sit*
sf lZlttt acres at the geographical cen
tra of New York City A steady Sow of
activities and announcements emanates
trom the Fair Corporation headquarters
on four floors of the Empire State build
ing. Judging from ill of these, the Fair is
? lusty, growing institution that will
reach full maturity?no question about
it ? by the scheduled opening day. April
TJie task of grading the site Is about
half completed. Battalions of men with
trucks have already moved over 3.000,
D00 cubic yards of dry fill in tht process
of turning the waste marsh landi of the
Flushing River basin Into park ground.
Dther battalions are scooping out "mead
ow mat" for use ?s fertile top soil for
the made lands, and In so doing excavate
the beds for the two large lagoons fea
tured In plans for the Fair.
The first of the 300 structures which,
?ccording to estimates, will house the
1939 Fair, has been completed and is
r;adj for occupancy. This is the head
juarters building for the field forces of
today and the employment department
of the exposition period.
Scheduled for early In the new year
Is the start of actual construction of the
(900.000 Administration building. The de
signs for this structure, let under ar
chitectural contract a few weeks ago, art
clearing the day of their approval in the
Corporation's offices. Upon completion
of this building, late in August. 1937, the
Fair headquarters, bag. baggage and sales
offices, moves to the exposition site.
'The most splendid and significant edi
fice projected for the 1939 international
exposition," the Theme building, as de
scribed at Fair headquarters, Is also well
along in its contractual period. The esti
mated cost of this great building for the
"Thematic Centre" of the exposition is
let at $1,200,000. The preliminary designs
are to be finished in about eight weeks
and the final plans submitted within four
weeks thereafter. Construction is sched
uled to start immediately the designs
From this Theme centre will radiate
all that is to be the 1939 Fair as con
ceived by Its founders and rendered into
concrete terminology and model by the
Fair's Board of Dssign.
"Our Job from now on is to give phys
ical expression to the plan and theme
of the Fair as announced and fcs set down
Dn paper In our headquarters," says
Grover Whalen. President of the Fair
"Starting next April 1, we plan to com
plete the design of one major building
every ten days for a period of seven
months. In all, we expect to design no
less than 30 major buildings to house the
exhibits from every part of the world.
Some 300 structures, in all, are planned
for the Flushing Meadow site, within a
few minutes' ride from Manhattan."
Without solicitation on the part of the
Fair, more than 250 American business
house- and Institutions have begun pre
liminary conversations regarding their
participation and are already planning
exhibits. Five of the great nations of the
world have already assured the Corpora
tion that they would erect their own
buildings, while no less than 32 other na
tions have Informally Indicated their
desire to participate.
And then, on top of all this display of
keen Interest, comes the announcement
that the International Convention Bu
reau, meeting In Paris, has allocated the
year 1939 to the New York Fair. This
means that the New York Fair has ex
clusive ranking as the "one international
exposition" of 1939, and assures it of the
active support of the 21 nations signing
President Roosevelt has just extended
official invitation to the nations of the
world. Governor Herbert H. Lehman, of
the host State of New York, has extend
ed invitation to the governors and resi
dents of 47 states. Grover Whalen, like
wise, has invited the governors in a let
ter pointing out that "the commercial
consequences of the New York World's
Fair are so great and important that they
alone would justify the active participa
tion of every state."
Fair Commissioners are already In
South America and Europe. Still others
are on their way to the Far East and
other foreign shores Major Dennis E
Nolan, retired, as head of the Depart
ment of Foreign. State and Municipal
Participation, will himself make .repre
sentation to the governors and legisla
tures of the various states.
Meanwhile, under the directloi. of Har
vey D. Gibson. President of the Manu
facturers Trust Company, and Richard
Whitney, former president of the New
York Stock Exchange, the prominent fig
ures in the financial capital conducted
a 28-day campaign to sell $27,829 500 In
debenture bonds of the Fair to finance
the construction period
Every confidence is being expressed
that the Fair not only will "pay its way."
but that it will bring a oillion dollars
more of revenue into Greater New York
and stimulate American industr} in gen- |
era! to an extent many fold that amount.
The total cost of producing New York's
Fair, Including collateral improvements,
is set at S125.00c.000 Statisticians esti
mate that the attendance will total more
than 50.000.000 persons
The City of New York, the State of
New York, and the Government of the
United States, according to expectations,
will account for $35,000,000 of the total
expenditures and thus lend an official
backing never before achieved.
Births and Deaths
It Is estimated that 100,000 persons
are born every day and 100,000 die. |
The population of the world, therefore,
