Bruce, vice president of the National Dairy Products Corporation, has been designated as United States ambassador- to Argentina to succeed the career diplomat George Messersmith. the Argentine Foreign Office said today. The designation was accepted by Argentina, clearing the way for President Truman to propose Bruce's name to the U. 8. senate. The procedure of asking Argentina's approval was in line witn diplomatic protocol, but it was unusual for a country receiving a new {ambassador to make the ffrst announcement of his selection. Messersmith. credited here with smoothing American relation# with Argentina, will leave Bueno# Aire# June 20. The pro-govemment Argentine press has unanimously deplored Messersmith'# resignation.

They continue to blast the unions in radio and newspaper advertisements. Although now    highly organised, unionism is still    in its Infancy in Hawaii. For years labor organizations were meaningless. The war brought thousands of mainlanders to the Islands and a demand by Island laborers for a higher standard of living. When martial law was ended, union organization went into high gear. The CIO’s ILWU Jumped out in front by signing 20,000 sugar ; workers; 7000 pineapple cannery and field laborers; 3000 lonshore-men; and another 5000 to 10.000 workmen in miscellaneous Indus-j    tries. With the chief industries controlled bv the CIO. little was left for the AFL. The CIO’s most recent accomplishment was to invade Hawaiian politics with Its Political Action Committee and put union men in the 45 member bicameral legislature. They managed to control half of the seats. in the Territorial House of Representatives and prevent the pas-] sage of anti-labor legislation.

J —If you want to keep your home "mosquito-proof’ this summer, don’t overfeed the fish in your garden pond. Experts at the New' Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station say that hungry fish eat mosquito larvae, but fish full of packaged food allow larvae to grow. The entomologists have issued these IO commandments for mosquito control: 1. Eliminate all standing w’ater. 2. Cover rainbarrels with mos-J qui to-proof screens. 3. Seal cesspools. 4. Drain clogged roof gutters | and flat roofs. 5. Cut up or remove old tires. 6. Tilt wheelbarrows and pails so they can’t hold water. 7. Oil sewer Inlets, cisterns and excavations weekly. 8 Change water in troughs, fountains and oird baths twice! weekly. 9. Empty or crush cans and other receptacles. 10. Be sure that screens fit tightly, that doors open out, and that screen mesh is 16 to the inch, or finer. Mesh sizes of screens are Important. Some sizes once popular, notably 12x12 and 14x14 mesh, have been proved ineffective. Commercial Standard GSI38-47 of the National Bureau of Standards re-j cognizes only 16x16,    18x14 and 18x18 mesh, whether galvanized steel, commercial bronze and cop-| per,    * Of these. 16x16 and 18-14 are ! equal in efficiency in most sec- -  ■    -    —    lions. However, greatest protec- r-.r-.rr.    ^    r    tion is given by 18x18 mesh. with DDT used for mosquito control jR brands per inch in each direction. This is recommended for areas where there are many small insects.
