YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. DISEASES OF PEAS FOLLOWING are ex- cerpts taken from weekly letter of the Lethbridge Re- search Station. "Peas are grown for seed and for processing on 15 to 20 thousand acres in Alberta, The crop is mainly confined Lo irri- gated farms in the south. The growing of peas is not with- out its hazards for peas are sus- ceptible to a variety of dis- eases. The stand and yield of garden and processing peas may be markedly increased if the seed is treated with a suit- able fungicide. Captan and Sem- esan, applied at the rate rec- ommended by the manufactur- er, have proved highly effec- tive in tests conducted at the Canada Department of Agricul- ture Research Station at Leth- bridge. "The fungicide acts to con- trol seedling diseases caused by soil-borne fungi that attack the cotyledons, roots, and shoots. These fungi will frequently kill the unprotected seedlings be- fore they emerge. Peas should be sown In a firm, moist seed- bed. Peas sown into dry soil and Irrigated within a few days are very susceptible to disease and often fail to emerge. "Root rot is the most serious disease of peas in this and many other pea-growing areas. In fields frequently cropped to peas the soil-borne fungi lhat SAND GRAVEL ASPHALT TOLLESTRUP SAND AND GRAVEL Construction Co. Lid. PHONE L 328-2702-327-3610 A Young, F.R.H.S. cause the disease, build up rap- idly to the level where pea growing must be abandoned. Land lhat is heavily infested with these organisms may re- quire ten years or more for the population to decrease to a level where peas can again be profit- ably grown. All the common pea varieties are susceptible to root rot. A crop sequence where peas are grown once in four or five years will prevent the build-up of large populations of these root-rotting fungi. "Wilt may also damage peas. This disease is caused by a soil- bome fungus that damages the conductive tissues of the plant and interrupts the movement of water and nutrients. The dis- eased plants become yellowish, collapse suddenly and die. This fungus also increases in soil cropped frequently to peas. Fortunately, most new varie- ties of peas are highly resis- tant to wilt. Only varieties spe- cified as wilt-resistant should be grown where wilt is a prob- lem. "Powdery mildew, the dis- ease that produces a white, powdery covering on the leaves, stems, and pods of peas, is fre- quently severe on late-matur- ing varieties in the field and in home gardens. Dusting the plants with sulfur as soon as the symptoms appear is effec- tive in controlling this disease. Bacterial blight, a seed-borne disease that causes spots on the leaves and pods, seldom causes significant damage to peas under the dry conditions of southern Alberta. Its main significance is that seed from a crop where bacterial blight has been found cannot be ship- ped to the United Kingdom, one of Canada's best customers for pL-n seed. Bacterial blight can be avoided by sowing m'scnse- frce seed in Inrrl not cropped to peas the previous growing sea- son."

BENY MURRAY BULLOCK CHEVROLET OLDSMOBILE OK SUPERMARKET CAR LOT PHONE 327-3140 Oct. 1970, there Is a chemical caUed KaraLhane for controll- ing powdery mildew on peas. Do not apply when the tempera- ture is over 80 degrees F. or when plants arc in flower. Be- fore applying, be sure to read the directions carefully. Pow- dery mildew may also be con- trolled by giving the plants good air circulation that is, not planting them too closely together. Also keep water off the foliage especially in the evening.

Unsightly cracks In interior walls arc often pressure poinls caused by tlic building's movc- monl. When this is Hie case, fill- ing them with ordinary patch- ing compound may provide only a temporary repair. If weath- er or vibrations set up more movement, the old cracks may open again or new ones will form nearby. One way to handle this prob- lem is with a material that hardens lo the touch, but re- mains soft and pliable beneath the surface. This will absorb shocks and movement of the building that ordinarily cause the cracks to reappear. First, clean (he surface sur- rounding the crack, chipping away any loose particles of plr.sler. Then, using a specially designed applicator or any flat ubj'ect, such as a putty knife, apply a coating of the material, filling the opening and smooth- ing it out about 2 inches on eilher side of the crack. The next step is lo cut a strip of fiberglass mesh material lhat comes in a kit, allowing it to extend about an inch be- yond the crack on either side. Using the same anplicator that was used to fill the crack, smooth the fabric into the soft material. As a final slep, apply another thin coaling, just enough to completely hide the fabric. You will find that the. material is of a thick enough consistency to be able to match the finish of your plaster wall, whether it is smooth or stippled. Draw it out smoothly along the edges so lhat it will show no ridges. For the best results, the manufac- turer recommends allowing the repair lo stand for a day be- fore painting. Then, after paint- ing or papering your wall, you will have a completely invisible repair that will absorb future house movements without re- appearing. By MR.

Readers profit by money errors By MORI REED Searching for errors in regis- ter, off center printing and mismatched serial numbers is no longer an exclusive pursuit of the avid paper money col- lector. An equally keen public awareness, stimulated by news- paper coin and currency col- umns, has created a demand for professional guidance. In response, publishers of Coin World have issued the sec- ond of their Numismation Ser- ies, "Price Guide for the Col- lector of U.S. Paper Money by Ed Kcuce, paper currency expert for Coin World. Until 19G4, reliable informa- tion on the value of paper money eiTors was scarce, es- pecially for the amateur col- lector. By the demand was so great for such information, three articles and their follow- ups written by Coin World's James G. Johnson and assem- bled in reprint form were sold out quickly. Prices were changing almost daily. Some up and some down, and it was apparent a new at- tempt had lo be made to up- date and expand this first at- tempt at establishing values for paper money errors. In 1971 all recorded paper money errors held in Coin World files were submitted to four paper money experts for study and assessment. The col. lection represented virtually every known misprint or error specimen existing on small currency Issues from 1929 to dale. When the evaluations had been completed, prices were "averaged out" for a price guide to paper money errors and published. Values shown were for notes in fine, extreme- ly fine and uncirculated condi- tion and pertained solely to the error itself. Denomination of the note was to be added lo the error values. Since the anpcaranoi! of this test material, the demand for such a guide in book form has been overwhelming. Every page In the book contains illus- Lralions demonstrating each er- ror. Ncuco also brings to light many manmade errors In an effort to produce a collector's item. Such productions have ab- solutely no numismatic value. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

Use your imagination. For patios and parking areas you will want to use concrete or some form of stone to make it an all-wenther form of pav- ing. Care necessary for outboards Most small boat owners will je putting between 50 and CO lours on their out-hoards this season. The amount of wear and tear on the engine is equal to putting miles on your car! In that length of time, for a two-cylinder oulboard, 0 Each spark plug fires times. O Contact points open and close times O The magneto delivers charges of current, volts per charge Bowling balls of metal banned Bowling balls are generally made of a hard rubber compo- sition. Balls made of pastic materials can be used, but bowlers cannot use metallic balls. Check your house The outside of a house should be checked twice a year in the spring and the fall to determine whether there are any small openings that require caulking. Spark plug wires deliver a total of volts The crankshaft will rotate times On this basis, it's easy to see why engine parts, parliculary the ignition system, wear out. Conditioning your outboard be.'ore the boating season be- gins can eliminate the embar- rassing situation where you are first in the water and also first out, long before the fun season end! Make sure spark plugs are cleaned and gapped. If this was done last season, consider in- stalling new spark plugs to get this season off to a good start. Go over the rest of the igni- tion system carefully making sure contact points are in good condition, adjusted to the prop er gap, and that spark timing is set correctly. Check all cab- les for broken insulation, loose connectors or for frayed spots. Replace all worn cables. Make sure you have an extra set of spark plugs on board as well as a wrench to install them. Keep these in a good, dry place to avoid rusting. See that the fuel feed system is clean, and all components operating properly. With these sorts of precau- tions plus your other normal "get back in-the water" checks and adjustments, you're ready [or another trouble-free fun season on the water. Outline the area with wood strips after excavating. If drainage Is good, concrete can bo laid directly on the earth after excavating to the desired level. But if drainage is a prob- lem, provide up to six Inches of gravel first. Several inches is good in any event. The base, no matter what it is, should be well packed. A path through your lawn can be made with pieces of paving rather than in one long length. Broken paving will do. So will small amounts of concrete that you can pre-cast into slabs first. Excavate for each piece of paving, going down to a depth that will keep it a little lower than the surrounding grass. This permits easy mowing. Moriarless patios are popular because they can be done by an amateur and done over a period of lime. Once you have poured enough concrete for a large slab, you must work quickly. Patio blocks and used bricks are both popular materials. Ex- cavate to a depth equal to the thickness of the material plus two or three inches for a bed ol sand. The sand base pro- vides both foundation and drainage. Install a wood form around the excavated area to hold thi material in place. The wood should be treated with a pre- servative first. Pour In the sand and rake It level. Wet it and pack it. Place the bricks, setting each one firmly and checking with a level frequently. When all are in, sweep sand over the surface and sweep off the ex- cess. Wet the area and sweep in more sand after the first amount has settled. Slabs cut from railroad ties can be used the same way. These have already been treat- ed with a preservative so they will stand up to the weather. You can use the same mater- ial for paths through your lawn. Gravel is a popular ma- terial for a path. Dig out a few inches of dirt, line with wood held in place with stakes and then fill gravel. Rake it smooth and level. Whatever you use, remember that the idea is to provide a dry, non-muddy path to garden, barbecue area and playground equipment. Enterprise ASSD.)
