Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma Webworms Hit Hard On Trees In Ada Vicinity A 'tiny little fellow with a lust for pecan tree juice is spreading his web of destruction more than'usual this year in Pontotoc County. He's the fall webworm, a misnamed bug (active all year) that can been seen squirming inside webs on more than half the trees in the Ada area. One buyer of pecans is pessimistic about a good yield year for pecans because of webworm damage. "It looks like another bad year from all I can see, the i pecan dealer said.

Farmers and ranchers and even town residents report the fibery webs are gaining on trees. But there's a way to stop this culprit, say the ones who know. Feed him a little arsenic con- taining spray DDT or pa- rathion. If that doesn't halt the little bugger then get out the clippers. For weeks now information has filtered through the county agent's office and to the NEWS office on the webworm's advance. And throughout the county he can be seen taking on new terri- tory. Treis. All covered with unsightly webs that look like the work of spiders. _.u_____ Actually the fall webworm makes the webs by feeding on leaves and branches. Usually all the members of a colony hatch from a mass of eggs deposited on a leaf by a single moth. The caterpillar feeds on both sides of the leaf of a tree while spinning the fibrous web. As they grow they need more leaves. If he's contained when inside the cocoon or web then his dam- age won't amount to much, says county agent Cy Hailey. But if he ever gets past a certain growth stage and leaves the web then watch out. When full grown the cater- pillars are a little more than an inch long and are covered with Jong white and black hairs.

Zorin was asked in a news con- ference if the Soviet Union would be willing to accept international inspections on its territory, if the United States and Britain drop their proposal for internationally staffed seismic detection stations inside Russia. "No Compromise" He said the Western plan was "no compromise at all in our view." U.S. Ambassador Arthur H. Dean said on his arrival Saturday the Western powers are ready to1 make this compromise to help get a treaty, but would insist the ac- cord provide for international in- spection of the site of a suspicious event detected on Soviet soil. The new Western idea has not yet been raised in the disarma- ment talks, which resumed today after a month-long recess. Russians "Compromise" Zorin' said the Soviet Union has already made its own compromise by accepting as a negotiating ba- sis a neutralist proposal provid- ing for on-site inspections only by invitation of the country where the suspicious event took place. "We are prepared to conclude a test ban treaty on the basis of the neutralist proposal, and on no other Zorin added.

Lee Hills, executive editor of the Knight newspapers and president of the American Society of News- paper Editors, led the party which has been on a three-week tour. The editors recalled Khrushchev saying Berlin was the key ob- stacle to relaxing international tension. But the official Russian tran- script, released today, toned this down to "one of the main ob- stacles."

Big Shot is 40 times more rigid and four times heavier than Echo I and is designed to retain its shape until returning to the at- mosphere.

The experiment was to test the effects of 50 per cent exposure to the radiation that man is ex- pected to encounter in future jour- neys into space. Flower beetles, which are ex- tremely sensitive to cosmic radia- tion, also went in a separate cap- sule on the ride at alti- tudes of up to feet across the North American continent that began Saturday. First reports from the wilder- ness area where the capsules fell did not mention the insects' fate. A third capsule carried instru- ments. up into Oklahoma Territory in a covered wagon from Texas. In Sulphur, he launched what came to be the town's most prom- inent livery stable. He operated drayage service, hauling par- ticularly for the then fashionable Artesian Hotel and the Oklahoma School for the Deaf. He also operated a "hack" line from the train station back to the hotel and other points in the city. He prospered in Sulphur and in fact entered the automotive field there. He came to .Ada "in 1916 and was the Ford dealer here until 1930. In that year, he disposed of the dealership and launched one of the best known cattle ranches in this area, south and west ofc-Ada on SH 12. He relied heavily on the old Hazlett breeding and over the years built the ranch into an establishment with a formidable reputation for producing fine reg- istered stock. In recent years, as his health began to fail, he disposed of the ranch and moved back into town. He was vitally interested in the economic advancement of Ada and this area. He was a civic worker. He served as president of the Ada Chamber of Com- merce. He was interested in the land. In fact, it was on his ranch where one of the first structures in the Sandy Creek Conservancy District was constructed. He was a member of the Methodist Church and the Masonic Lodge.

It's The Lady's Birthday Girl Scouts Open International Roundup BUTTON BAY, Vt. (AP) Ladies generally don't brag when they reach their 50th birthdays but Girl Scouts open a rous- ing 10-day female stag party Wednesday to commemorate the event. The second International Girl Scout Roundup marks the golden anniversary of the year a lady named Juliette Low of Savannah, Ga., organized a group of girls to teach them such maidenly arts as camping, cow. milking and rein- ing runaway horses. "Honor.the the Fu- ture" is the theme of the round- up which will continue through July 31. President Kennedy will send greetings. The Post Office Department has issued a com- memorative stamp. Button Bay, a flat, 450-acre site which will be converted into a state park after the girls depart, has been furnished with a water system tapping nearby Lake Champlain for gallons a day. The suout organization built an amphitheater for persons. The Army has supplied 100 tons of tents and a 100-bed field hos- pital. The New England Telephone and Telegraph Co. has installed a microwave tower to handle long distance calk. Girl Scout officials say it will be the largest mass movement of teen-aged girls in the country's history. Eleven special trains from all over the United States, 100 chartered buses and a hay wagon which will convey a troop from nearby Rutland, Vt., are in- cluded in the retinue. Scouts 14 through 17 years age will do much of the. work but adults will be on hand to supervise and lend assistance. Each patrol of eight girls will live adjacent to at least three other patrols from different parts fires, getting supplies from the commissary and washing up. Numerous food firms have do- nated tons of groceries, 'including you-know-what for pancakes, from the Vermont Maple Industry Council. A village green has been set aside where costumed Girl Scouts from New England, New York and New Jersey will give demon- strations in such colonial arts as weaving, quilting, candle dipping, tin painting, and, an old Indian squaw scout trick, making birch bark canoes. A mass campfire July 20 fea. of the country.

Girl Guides, the equivalent else- where of the Girl Scouts, are par- ticipating of them com- ing from as far as Japan and Nigeria. Its a far cry from the day March 12, 1912, when Juliette Low had a group of girls the first scouts over to her house to tain them in camping, Morse code cow milking and how to catch a runaway horse. Now there are 3Vi million Girl Scouts and runaway horses are as rare as a Boy Scout in Button Bay.
