It is easy to grow the popular
salad crop such as lettuce and en
dive if the gardener will keep in
mind that they are cool season
crops and are at their best quality
before the hot weather of early
summer arrives. .
This means that these crops must
be planted early in order to mature
early.'. MSany gardeners complain
that they cannot grow 'good bead
lettuce because the ; hot weather
damages It before it matures. That
is an indication that they either
did not plant early enough or that
they used a poorly adapted variety,
Young lettuce plants will with
stand a, lot of.fr oitly weather so
the frost date u not important. -In
fact, in the extreme eastern- portion
of the state it is now getting late
for best results, in central and Pied
mont areas it is Just about the right
time to set head lettuce plants and
In the mountains it is still little
early. Good plants may usually be
obtained from seed and plant stores
or from commercial growers .The
Great Lakes variety is the most
dependable heading variety for our
growing conditions" ,t v .
Lettuce and other salad . crops
require heavy fertilization to keep
them growing rapidly; Stable man
ure is an excellent fertilizer but
should be : supplemented with -
good commercial fertilizer to fur-
nun quickly available plant food.
Plants should be set about 12 Inches
apart in the row. Cultivation should
be shallow and watering Is essen
tial in dry periods, especially when
the heads are forming. Lettuce will
not thrive on very acid soils, r , '.
Some people prefer leaf lettuce
to head lettuce because the leaves
ed stone for' a parking area, or
parking .areas. ; .,. lf v . '
I suggest, therefore, that you be
gin your planning how, particularly
with respect to the items of equip
ment which you will require, . and
get together t the money necessary
to purchase these items. .You, of
course, are aware of the provisions
of law authorizing each unit to have
hot . be exceed twenty five contri
buting members ' at not less than
$10.00 per member 'each year. The
large - majority of contributing
members pay $25.00 each, per year.
Some 'pay $20.00, some pay $15.00,
and some pay $10.00. The Adjutant
General's Department has caused
to be printed and has available for
issue' to Unit Commanders a supply
of . Certificates of , Membership.- A
contributing member is entitled to
a Certificate Of Membership and by
reason thereof is entitled to exemp
tion from Jury duty in" the State
Court for a period of one year from
the date of his . certificate. Such
amounts as he pays as a contribut
ing member is a deductible item in
making up his income tax return.
" It is further suggested that you
scrutinize very closely your operat
ing expenses pending completion of
your new armony and endeavor to
accumulate as much as possible in
your unit fund.

are green and not so course. An
excellent variety is the new "Salad
Bowl" which makes . a compact
growth and will withstand quite a
lot of hot waether. Plants are usual
ly not available so seed of leaf
lettuce should be sown early. '
Endive is a salad crop similar
to lettuce but is not commonly
grown in home gardens. There are
two types - the curled endive with
frilled leaves and the- smooth leaved
type. Sndive is grown like head
lettuce, but makes a loose head
and the inner leaves may be blan
ched by tying the outer leaves over
them. Endive is stronger in flavor
than lettuce- and is much more
