At least one attempt was made n the first session of the 84th con Hresc to remove the cargo prefer ence restrictions on sales of sur pluses for foreign currencies. It filed under a concerted attack by members from Stales where shipping interests Are of prime importance. In a current publication the american farm Bureau federa Tion looses this blast at cargo pre Ference Laws we should t have to give up farm exports to pay for the american merchant Licet. That s what we re doing with cargo pre Ference. You be heard about farm subsidies. You Dor t hear so much about other subsidies. The Mer chant Marine subsidy is one of them. Last Ovcar the u. S. Govern ment paid shipowners 125 million dollars opponents of the cargo prefer ence idea argue that it is a useless expense to ship half of any Given consignment in u. S. Vessels when this country is dealing with a country having its own merchant Marine. They Point out that countries like Norway and Denmark having Large fleets have refused to make foreign currency for surpluses deals us Long As cargo preference exists. Other instances were cited in which a country wanting to buy u. S. Farm products has currency things they need dropped leaving or credits with a third country lip parity ratio unchanged Froid with merchant ships and could use the currency to pay necessary transportation costs. Such deals arc prevented How Ever insofar As half of the total cargo is concerned. As has been pointed out Many limes before wages and other fac tors make it much More expensive to operate the american merchant Marine than shipping Lino. To run a foreign the july ratio of 84, the Federal state cooperative crop reporting service said last week. This was five Points lower however than in revised ratio for August 1 the Index of prices received Tennessee banners for All products dropped 6 Points or slightly More than 2 per cent from mid july to mid August compared to fou Points in the nation As a whole.

The questions below do not Deal with any one theme but instead cover a wide Range of gardening problems. Trouble with Iris. Many of the leaves turn Brown pull out of Root easily and Are very Slimy. Iris Are infested with Rorers. Remove and Burn All infected leaves now and Spray weekly with Dot or Methoxychlor. Kill Small borers by pinching them in lower part of tunnels. If severe rot is not present older borers May be Cut out of roots and cavities drenched with 1 Tablet dichloride of Mercury in 1 pint of water or nor Mal strength Temesan solution for rot control. In autumn remove and Burn All old leaves. Badly infested plants should be discarded. Live in a basement less House and Are troubled with ants along the baseboard of every room. Have heard that there is a Plant which will keep them out. What is it and where can some be Pur chased never heard of such Plant. Chlordane 5 or 10 per cent dusted on the ground All about the House especially on the door and window Sills will rid you of the ants. Look for their nests enlarge the openings and pour in some of the chlordane. Years ago we Cut a Large Maple but did not remove the stump. Since covering the stump with topsoil and sowing grass seed we have been troubled Wilh an almost constant growth of toadstools where the tree used to be. What can be done to get rid of this eyesore decaying tree stump is the cause of the Toadstool infestation. Loosen the soil in that area with a spading Fork and soak to a depth of two or three inches with a corrosive sublimate Tion using one ounce to 10 Gallons of water. Repeat when necessary lower leaves of my Phlox ing the blooms from other Plant plants Are turning yellow and ing. What is the cause and the cure red spiders working on the underside of the leaves Are present yellowing of Phlox foliage is generally due to a physio Loglia condition. So Spray with malathion if webbing underneath indicates red spider otherwise fertilize and water. A too wet soil can also be to blame. It ii buds of our Orlenta poppy blight just As they Are on the verge of opening. We water freely yet no blooms have developed since the topples were planted two years ago. Poppies can be de Pended upon to Bloom if planted in a Well drained sunny location in soil deeply prepared with humus and a fertilizer Strong in phosphorus. Protection from stand ing water at any time is essential you May be Over watering. Stems of our arc covered with some sort of scale. What is it and what should be done to get rid of it Likely Euonymus scale insects. Spray with malathion every two weeks during the summer and in Early Spring before growth starts Spray with a 2 per cent mis Cilc Oil. Out your Spray head Down under the leaves where the is. A we planted geraniums in our Yard and we would like to know f we should pick the blossoms when they Start to Wilt. Just what is the Best Way in which to care for them also do you advise pick such As Dwarf marigolds should pansies be Cut often Flowers of All plants should be picked otherwise the plants Stop Blooming. Either Cut them off close to the main Stem or carefully break them off at Tho joint. When cutting Pansy blooms Ake some of the foliage too this prevents straggly plants. Faded Flowers soon go to seed thus fulfilling the purpose of the Plant. I t v appreciate your Tell ing me what disease is affect Tiff the leaves on our Maples and How to treat it. Spray them with 50 per cent malathion but do not Enow if it will help. Spotting is common a Maples following wet Spring weather. Spraying now is of no help. However preventive spraying with formate or Bordeaux mixture two or three times in Spring at two week intervals As buds open and leaves expand is recommended. Malathion is of no help in com bating disease. Why do Success minded people take the Dale Carnegie course the honorable Joseph Foss governor of s. Marine plying Ace of would we 11.
