We have a very Small Garden just for our own pleasure and be far we be planted Corn five times and every time we Plant the Cern when it gets about an Inch High something is digging it up and what i d like to know is is there anything we can do to protect our Corn we have a scarecrow and we be tried putting aluminium strips All around but nothing seems to help. B. H. A. It May be caused by cutworms which feed Only at night and in a matter of Days can destroy Corn Cotton wheat tomatoes or cabbage. The worm is the larva of the Miller Moth a the kind you see flitting around lights in summer evenings. Control must begin in Early fall before the Brown and Gray Moths Lay their eggs. This they do in Early september attaching them to old stalks left in gardens and Fields. They Hatch in a few weeks move Down to the ground and feed on nearby vegetation. When cold weather comes they Burrow in the ground and spend the Winter As partially grown caterpillars. If the Field is slowed in Spring and planted in Corn the crop will probably go to the hungry Worms. Since they feed at night and rest in the Day you can look at the base of damaged stalks Early in the morning. If there is a Mound of beaded dirt beside a Small Hole dig it up and you la probably find a worm curled up about an Inch below the surface. Squash it. To prevent damage at planting time from Worms still in the soil wrap a strip of heavy Brown paper loosely around the Stem of each Plant As its set out. The wrapping should extend at least try Inch below the surface and fun Inch above. The paper can be removed around the last of june. You can also make a bait of Hardwood not Pine sawdust 25 per cent wheat bran 25 per cent molasses 50 per Cen plus enough water to saturate mixture. Scatter a handful around each Plant at dusk. Nie Sweet molasses attracts the Worms from the plants the bait clings to their bodies hardens by morning and makes them helpless to move or Burrow so be destroyed by Birds or Sun. It is not too per cent effective but it eliminates Large numbers of them. A ring of Wood ashes around plants also makes a Good Barrier against cutworms and slugs. If you think some other creature is doing the damage you can Call the county agents in Greensboro for advice. A direct line to their office is 888-9919, Extension 30.Casey s demise a. I would Uke to know wharf Cooey Jones Tho Engineer died in o train wreck. I heard on a program that he died in the Wabash Cannonball and i knew for sure that was t True.

The new or leans to Chicago Cannonball the fast mail train of the Illinois Central. Learning that the Engineer of the southbound train was sick he volunteered to take his run. Early the next morning through no fault of his his train struck two freight trains protruding from a siding at Vaughan. Mississippi. Tiey found Casey a body in the wreckage of engine 382, one hand on the throttle the other on the air Brake. By staying in the engine to apply the brakes he spared the lives of his Crew and passengers.

It is True the boats at the City Lake really do look As if they Are going to pot. I ought to know i am the boat Dock attendant. Lets look at this simple problem realistically. The City does no to dirty the boats a we clean them. If they re not clean its because i Haven to had time to clean them due to other trashy boats. Some of the fishermen take fish out of the Lake but they just flu not take their litter with them. I have found everything from Beer cans to Bass under to inches Long. Some of these people have used these boats for swimming platforms and Public restrooms. I have had some people complain not about the trash but about the people who do these things. Posting signs does no to help and if you ask them to take their trash out they want to beat you with their fishing rods. As far As the water goes its in the Lake and not in the boats after i leave. That is the Way it is. In a not a Public servant Birt a Public maid. If some people would make use of the trash barrels an the Dock it would make things a bit More pleasant for themselves and others.

Mike gravel Dalaska about arrangements for publication of the Pentagon papers. The 5 to 4 decision was written by Justice Byron r. White who was supported by Tbs four Nixon administration appointees. White said the Constitution does not immunize either legislators or their aides from testifying at trials or before grand juries when their a a legislative functions Are not under Challenge. For example White said if a congressmen or an assistant makes an illegal arrest or seizes the property or invades the privacy of citizen a cannot claim an exemption from questioning. By 5-4 vote High court strikes Down death penalty by Barry Schweid associated press writer Washington a the supreme court held 5 to 4 today that the death penalty As it is now used in the United states violates the Constitution and cannot be imposed. While the decision leaves the door open for Legislatures to reinstate capital punishment in some circumstances one of the last . Execution Luis j. Monge was put to death in the Colorado state Penitentiary on june 2, 1967. Monge was the last person to be executed in the . He was Given the death sentence for the killing of his wife and three of his ten children. This picture was made in 1963 As Monge listened to his sentence. A wire photo after sole by Farmer vegetables fruits put under controls by Bill Neikirk after dated Presa writer Washington a president Nixon brought fresh fruits eggs vegetables and seafood under Price controls for the first time today but Only after the first Sale has been made by the Farmer. Nixon signed an executive order removing the current exemption on raw agricultural products from Price controls after the first Sale meaning that it win apply primarily at the wholesale and retail level the action will have virtually no Impact on the Selling Cost of meat to Consumers. Processed meat such As beef and pork have been under controls since the inception of Nixon s Price controls last november for the first time however products such As fresh vegetables fresh fish that has undergone some processing and other raw products at wholesale and retail will be subject to Price commission rules. These rules limit businesses profit margins and require stores to justify All Price in creases through increased costs. Donald Rumsfeld director of the Cost of living Council told newsmen that Nixon s action a cannot drive food prices Down Only increased Supply or reduced demand could do that it but he said the decision is designed to put discipline on Price markups and margins at each step of the food processing Chain Rumsfeld said Nixon a action probably will not be greeted with much enthusiasm at the wholesale and retail level. Nixon announced last week he is lifting meat import quotas for the remainder of the year in an Effort to slow the Rise in beef and pork prices. But the president has been reluctant to tighten the control program to make it apply to the farm level. Some of the products that win be affected include eggs in the Shell All fresh vegetables All fresh or naturally dried foods and All raw seafood products including those which have been shelled scaled skinned iced eviscerated or decapitated. Nine opinions issued by the court said the immediate result is to remove the death sentences from the 600 condemned inmates across the land. All nine justices filed statements of their views. In the majority were justices William o. Douglas William j. Brennan jr., Thurgood Marshall and with some reservations Potter Stewart and Byron r. White dissenting were the four Nixon administration appointees chief Justice Warren e. Burger and justices Harry a. Blackmun Lewis f. Powell jr., and William h. Rehnquist. Reversed immediately by the decision were two death sentences for non fatal rapes in Georgia and Texas and a death sentence for murder in Georgia. Here is How the majority was formed Douglas concluded capital punishment is incompatible with the concept of a equal Protection of the Laws. That he found to be a a implicit in the eighth amendment. Brennan based his judgment primarily on the theory that the death penalty a does not comport with human he also cited the eighth amendment. Marshall found capital punishment to be a morally unacceptable and a a excessive when measured against the eighth amendments prohibition on cruel and unusual punishments. Stewart concluded that the death penalty is now applied in a a a Wanton and a a freakish manner. White said the death penalty is invalid mostly because it is used infrequently and did not meet a any existing general need for retribution. Burger in dissent said the decision leaves Legislatures free a to carve out limited exceptions to a general abolition of the he said the court had gone a beyond the limits of judicial Power a but added a while fortunately leaving some room for legislative Blackmun saying he yields a to no one in the depth of my distaste antipathy and indeed Abhorrence for the death penalty a nevertheless dissented because he wrote a i fear the court has overstepped a a Powell said none of the five opinions by the justices in the majority a provides a constitutionally adequate foundation for the courts for the present he said the ruling a removes the death sentences previously imposed on some 600 persons awaiting punishment throughout the Rehnquist said a the court s judgment today strikes Down a penalty that our nations legislators have thought necessary since our country was he said the ruling had completely disregarded a judicial the Central question before the court was whether capital punishment violates the eighth amendments prohibition against a cruel and unusual Man arrested in hijacking Detroit a a 28-year-old unemployed Man was arrested at his Home and charged As the Airliner Hijacker who got $502,500 Ransom and parachuted Over Indiana last weekend the Fri announced today.
