Civilization Found Already Established When European explorers first arrived in Central and South America, the established Indian civilizations were the Incas in the highlands of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador1 and northern Chile; the Chibchas in the high- lands of Colombia; the Mayas of Guatemala and Yucatan; and the Aztecs of Mexico. YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.5. 0 fja RF POTATOES of the most popular and important of all vegetables and known as 'King of the Ta- ble' is the potato (Solanum tu- It offers more pos- sibilities in the number of ways it can be prepared than any other vegetable. It was first grown in Spain in 1570 and in England and Ireland about 1587. To get the best yield and quality you must start with good certified seed. Avoid the use of ordinary table potatoes as the tubers have probably been treated with a growth in- hibitor. If you are able to grow good disease free potatoes you could save your own seed, but it is recommended Uiat you pur- chase certified seed at least ev- ery second year. Potatoes grow best in a good sandy loam, in full sun, but with the proper preparation incor- porating an ample supply of or- ganic matter and fertilizer a good crop can be raised on clay soil.-Do not use fresh manure as this tends io increase scab. However, some can be applied in the fall and dug well in to a depth of'at least 6 inches. Commercial fertilizers are also satisfactmy and are used at the rate of 1 level tablespoon for each hill for the home garden and 200 pounds per acre for those on farms. Use 14-14-7 or 10-30-10 for sandy soils and 16- 20-0 on heavier soils. Apply in the bottom of the hole and dig well in, making sure the potato pieces do not come in with the fertilizer. If you examine the tuber you will note that on the end to which the potato was attachec there are no eyes or buds, bul on the opposite end there is quite a concentration of them. Whole potatoes may be planted and should Weigh 2 to 3 ounces. Seed pieces cut from larger tu- bers give best results if they contain 2 to 3 buds and weigh at least 2 ounces. Cut small po- tatoes in half and the larger ones in quarters. For an early crop place the tubers in a shallow tray in a warm place and expose to the sun. Soon thick green sprouts will for. i. This should be done 2-3 weeks before planting is Discard any potatoes which show internal discoloration or rot. Plant seed pieces about 3 to 4 inches deep on a light soil and 2 to 214 inches on heavier soils, about 12 inches apart, in rows approximately 30 inches apart. When the potatoes are three to four inches high, give the first hilling-up, and again when six to eight inches high. This helps to protect tender shoots from frost and prevents greening of Ihe tubers. In any event, it should be completed before the buds form on the stolons, for at this stage of growth the tubers begin to develop. The potatoes reach maturity when the tops die down. Some good varieties are Early: Norland, Warba and Early Ohio and Viking. Mid-Season: Irish Cobbler, Canus, Chinook, Late: Netted Gem (not suitable on dry Columbia Russet, Kenne- bec and Red Ponliac. Scab is caused by a common soil-borne bacteria which is us- ually found in alkaline soils. To acidify, apply flowers of sul- phur, 2% ounces to the square yard. You can also purchase preparations to Irent the tubers before planting. Mr. B. I have grown some Schizanthus from seed but they seem to be very straggly. What would you recommend I do with them? Ans. This is one plant that can be "pinched" back several times during the growing sea- son. That is, nip off the top of the plant when approximately 3 inches high and again later on to make the plant bush out Ay questions should be sent with self-addressed, stamped envelope to Mrs. I.

Spray them with Niagara Wonder Weeder, the deluxe lawn weed killer and they're gone for good. And so will Plantain, Chickweed, Creeping Charlie and all those other lawn weeds. Niagara Wonder Weeder kills right down lo the roots and leaves nothing to sprout again. It won't harm your valuable lawn. If you only have a few dandelions or small weed patches, spot kill them with the handy aerosol spray form of Wonder Weeder. Unless you 'Dig' dandelions. NIAGARA CHEMICALS Burlington, Ontario. These Fishermen Don't Use Nets Portuguese fishermen, unlike those of other countries, use only hooks, never nets, to catch cod. The fisherman, working with bare hands in freezing weather, pays out a long line with 400 to baited hooks, and a highly skilled or lucky fisherman may hook as much as a ton of cod in a single day. Telling Time In the 24-hour system of tell- ing time, there is no change for the hours before noon; 12 is added to the hours after noon. Four digits are always used to express time in hours and min- utes. For example, a.m. is 0345; noon is 1200; p.m. is 1930. In this system, the letters a.m. and p.m. are omitted. Build Web Chair And Lawn Table r. Time brings many changes and unless we keep searching for new answers to old prob- ems we seldom hear about them. For example, a few years ago making smart pieces of urniture took considerable skill and experience. Then manufac- urers of m a n y products, de- signed originally for factory as- sembly, started to market their iroducts through retail stores. This gave homeowners an op- portunity to use the same short juts to furniture making used >y the professionals. But, some- hing was lacking. Since the av- erage homeowner didn't know vhere to use these new prod- ucts, the need for directional material resulted in full size patterns. Today, anyone who :an read and follow simple di- rections can build designer tyled furniture. The patterns not only specify the same mate- ials found in the highest priced articles, but by building it your- self, you can usually make sub- stantial savings. A case in point is this chair. All materials for three chairs cost less than one chair purchased readymade. The step-by-step method of construction outlined in the pat- terns .offered below takes all the mystery out of building. The material list not only tells what to buy, but also where and when each is used. Full size patterns can be traced directly on lumber, then cut to exact shape required. A one dollar keyhole saw or sabre saw can be used. Since patterns indicate exact location of adjoining parts, there's little chance for error. Send fof Chair Pattern No. 548.
