The American Red Crow assisted n-1

United States during the year ending
June 30, 1935, than through any similar
period in the peace-time history of the
organization, Admiral Cary T. Gray
son, chairman, -revealed recently in
commenting on the annual - report
which has just been released. -
f( "The 128 domestic disasters In which
the Red Cross extended aid during the
fiscal year exceeded by 56 per cent the
average over the past few years," Ad
miral Grayson said. "Not only was the
period heavy In the number of disasters,
but the geographical distribution was
wide, with 37 States and 353 counties
'. "Through these disasters and times
of community distress, the Red Cross
assisted 110,000 persons," the Admiral
Spectacular service was rendered In
many disasters because of the unique
ness of the problems and the far-flung
points affected. The work of the Na

Peach Trees Need Attention

Fruit growers who hope to harvest
at least a normal crop of 8,000 car
loads of peaches next summer will play
safe by spraying their trees for lear

Dormant sprays for leaf curl are
usually prepared so that any scale" In
sects present may also be killed with
i the one application. For this purpose
a strong solution of lime-sulphur has
been the standard In past years. It Is
prepared by mixing 12 gallons of
liquid lime-sulphur in 100 gallons of
water, or If the grower is certain that
scale is not present, the leaf curl can
be controlled by using half the amount
of llme-sulphur, or 6K gallons In .100
gallons of water. V'.1, V-'
When applying the spray, It Is essen
tial to hit every twig,. as any. branch
missed, may develop the disease next
spring. Fortunately, the leaf curl fun
gus rarely spreads to new growth in
the spring months after It appears, and
consequently missed branches alone
