There May be one still slowly scratching his fleas while we feebly scratch our head wondering How one could Ever find the answer. A sour tree q. I have a Lemon tree and it is pretty and i want to know How to fertilize it so it will Bear Lemons. . A. The encyclopedia of organic gardening gives this information. There should be generous amounts of compost in the soil or if you Are not re potting it replace the top Inch with humus Rich material. Humus is organic matter that has decomposed and broken Down into Fine particles. Fruiting plants do Best in full Sun the Ideal temperature is 55 to 60 at night and 65 to 70 during the Day. It is Best to keep air As humid As possible then give water amply at the roots when the surface soil begins to dry. Water Spray top growth at regular intervals to increase humidity and keep the Plant clean. A Horticulturist Ira Carter suggests the following for Lemon tree care. When new growth begins pick a Nice Day take the Plant outside and about 3 or 4 times at 30 minute intervals give it All the water it will take provided the Container has holes for Good drainage. This will flush out the soluble salts that have built up Over the past year. Then let it stand three to five Days to dry out. All Citrus like an acid soil about the same As azaleas. A pm of 4.5 to 5.5 is Best. Mix and apply a soluble fertilizer such As is used for azaleas and camellias something like a 27-7-7 Azalea special. You la need about three to four times As much nitrogen As phosphate or Potash. If you can to find this you could try a dry fertilizer like 10-5-5. Use one teaspoonful to a 6-Inch pot every two weeks or for a 12-to 14-Inch Container about a tablespoonful each two weeks. To get the acid soil the Plant desires use a Teaspoon vinegar to one quart of water and water with this about once each week til you get the desired pm or you can use aluminium sulphate. Use one ounce to two Gallons of water and water every week or two. Usually about three or four waterings will bring it Down sufficiently and then just occasionally every couple of months. Do this feeding just during the growing period. Around the last of August or in september the feeding should cease until the next growing season. Federal Energy office would put 14.1 million Gallons into North Carolina above february a allocation of 168.5 million Gallons. Holshouser said the increase plus an estimated 16,8 million Gallons reserved under an emergency allocation at the end of last month would push the states available Supply for March to 199.4 million Gallons. Most of the emergency allocation has not been delivered he said. The governor said the additional increases meant that for March North Carolina would have 105 per cent of its gasoline Supply for March 1972, the base year for Federal programs. The Feo said North Carolina was one of seven states with too per cent or More of its March 1972 Supply. Wholesale Price Rise subdued Washington a wholesale prices took another big leap Forward in february but the increase fell Short of soaring rates of previous months the government said today. The Bureau of labor statistics said that wholesale prices jumped by a seasonally adjusted 1.2 per cent last month the smallest Advance in four months but a highly inflationary rate nevertheless. The increase pushed wholesale prices 20.3 per cent higher than a year earlier an extraordinarily Sharp Rise for any 12-month period but still below record Levels. The february increase lifted the wholesale Price Index to 152.7 of the 1967 average meaning that it Cost $152.70 to buy the same volume of wholesale goods that $100 purchased in 1967. The increase Means that Consumers will be seeing Many of the rises at the retail level in the weeks ahead. About 70 per cent of the february increase was traced to Price increases for fuel primarily gasoline and residual fuels metals farm products and processed foods and feeds. In january wholesale prices Rose by 3.1 per cent the second highest monthly increase on record. Charles Vav.

The latest development in the watergate cases came after president Nixon had moved dramatically on wednesday to Blunt the Impact of the coverup indictment. A special grand jury investigating the break in at the Beverly Hills calif., office of Daniel Ellsberg a psychiatrist was believed ready to return indictments. Last Friday a Federal grand jury indicted seven former administration and Campaign aides on charges they conspired to Block the investigation of the watergate break in.

Zev wanderer a 41-year-old psychologist who directs the Center for behaviour therapy in Beverly Hills calif., says part of the reason for the Success of streaking is that it is self assertive activity. Quot in a generation where the Way to be Impact Ful is to be either a music Star or very talented or a thief an alternative for the student is to run around naked a he said. A it s a relatively easy Way to gain Fame and but wanderer says educators should not just laugh it off.
