Local fishermen have j been paid S1.50 per bushel. The luck of the menhaden fleet also has changed.

" It is not always possible to positively identify the Granville Wilt disease of tobacco on the basis of field symptoms alone, because there are other wilt diseases which have symptoms very similar to Granville wilt. However, the first sign of Granville wilt on tobacco in the field is usually evidenced bv the drooping or wilting of one 01 iTktir leaves, and this effect is followed by wrinkling, yellowing, and death of the leaf or leaves. Before the first leaf which showed symptoms of the disease has lied. ~>the? leaves, usually those idjaoent <.o the ~ne which was iffected first, develop symptoms \ ind progress through the characteristic stages. In most cases the iisease progresses until the entire plant is killed. If a crosssection is made of a tobacco stalk in the early stages of the Iisease, the woody portions will je marked with yellow streaks, vhich in later stages turn brown >r black. If the cut end of a dis;ased stalk is pressed with the 'ingers, or otherwise, the discol>red strands of tissue will yield i dirty, yellowish ooze. Release >f this ooze upon the application >f pressure to the cut ends of diseased stalks is one of the most :haracteristic and reliable symptoms on which to identify the Cranville Wilt in the field. Sometimes the presence of a few dead roots with the brown discolored tissue is another reliable distingishing symptom. In the late stages of the disease, the stalk of the plant turns black at or near the soil line, which is followed by a complete collapse of both the above and below ground portions of the plant. Characteristically, the Granville wilt disease kills a high percentage of the plants in infested areas in the field, which are usually scattered, in contrast to sore shank and southern root rot which characteristically kill plants at random. If you are uncertain of the identity, send in the roots and lower part of the plant} (Continued on Page 12.) Tide Table Following is the tide table for Southport during the next week.
