invasion of grasshop pers in half a century The inexperienced easterner may say Well what of it Inasmuch as it is of overproduction that the grain belt is complaining will it not be a blessing if the orthoptera eat up some of the espe cially Possibly so rejoins Dr W R Walton cereal and forage insect specialist of the agriculture depart ments bureau of entomology if the creatures would confine them selves to which by the way a vast deal already is harvest ed surplus and all and therefore safe from their ravages Unfortunately they are starting now on the corn which the farmers need to fatten their livestock t TO the entomologically ignorant Dr Walton admits that there must seem to be something almost deliberately malevolent in a fate which spares a crop that the farm ers actually would
