Blight Is Threatening
Beauty Of Dogwoods
The dogwood. loveliest of the
spring's flowering trees, faces a
dreary and blighted future because
of a newly discovered fungus disease.'.-'-.
The disease, which attacks
only the dogwood, withers or
splotches the rlelicate bloom.
Dr. Julian II. Miller of the Uni
versity of Georgia, one of the
nation's top plant pathologists, re
ports the disease now has been
found in . Florida,. Georgia, .1 the
Carolines, Virginia and Maryland.
The great tragedy- Is, says
Miller, that the disease can be
controlled, but who is going to
look after the wild dogwood
which each year turns the forest
into white and pink fairylands?
To those fortunate enough to
boast a dogwood on their private
patches. Miller wants it known that
he has found the fungicide called
the Bordeaux Mixture most effec
tive in controlling the disease.
The best time to spray, he con
tinues, is just before the trees be
gin to bloom.
How the disease first came to
light in 1048 is a story in itself.
Dr. A. A. Bitancourt, plant pathol
ogist from Sao Paulo, Brazil, was
passing through Savannah one day
en route to Washington.
With time to kill between
trains. Dr. Bitancourt went for a
walk. The walk took him past a
dogwood tree and that was

annah on that trip. He found the

Dr. Bitancourt took samples and
