Warns Against Plant
Diseases Over State
Weather conditions have favored
heavy outbreaks of plant diseases

Poole, plant pathologist at the N.
C. Agricultural Experiment station.
Apple scab has appeared in many
orchards, he continued," but it can
be controlled with sulphur sprays
when the -weather is mild. In hot
weather, spray with Bordeaux mix
ture. Had weather has retarded the de
velopment of cotton, corn, beans,
melons, and other plants, but they
will have , a fairly good resistance
to disease if they are not thinned
. Don't use Bordeaux mixture on
peach trees,' Dr. Toole warned.
Spray o'r dust with sulphur to con
trol brown rot on peaches, cher
ries, and plums. For spraying, use
any type of sulphur that suspends
well in water.

squash, pumpkins,' clovers, lilacs,

be controlled with sulphur spray or
Leaf spot, or blister disease, on
maple and oak has appeared in
parts of the, state. Although it mars
the foliage, this disease will .not kill
the trees. It can be controlled by
spraying or dusting with sulphur.

plants can be grown from good
seed planted in soil free from dis

on land where they were diseased
And don't transplant young to
bacco plants that are afflicted with

til the plants have recovered. Plenty
of sunshine will aid their recovery
while in the seed bed.

a more desirable quality than fer
Gather the eggs twice a day in a
wire basket or other ventilated con

12 .hours before packing them in
cases. Eggs should be kept in a
cellar or other place where the
temperature remains between 35 to
60 degrees. v '
Air should circulate freely be
tween the eggs. If the air becomes
too dry, in hot weather, a few
pans of water set on the floor will
help keep the room moist.
Take the eggs to market at least
twice a week, if possible. " Clean
eggs bring more attractive prices
than dirty eggs.

skimping on feed. Poorly fed birds

but it is a good plan to save feed
by culling out low-producing birds.

Clubs Learn to Help

together as never before in the
national social progress program.
Thousands of groups are achieving
results never dreamed of, and open

to submit a record of cooperative
projects such as meetings, exhibits
and educational demonstrations,
public ' entertainments, radio and
music activities, fire- prevention,
conservation, social welfare, play

A score is designated for the dif
ferent activities and each county
selects its best club on that basis
to compete for state honors. A na
tional victor is then named. Each
county winning club receives through
the Radio Corporation of America
and its services, NBC and RCA
Victor, choice of a handsome Victor
Book of the Opera or 4-H song
records ; state winners receive a
$100 RCA Victor radio or portable
player or victrola and selected rec
ords valued at $100; the national
winning club receives a 15-tube
RCA Victor latest model phonograph-radio,
valued at $450 and $100
worth of RCA Victor records for
use in 4-H and community activit-.
