Why Not Plant A Few Nut Trees?
By DEAN HALLIDAY
Central Press Association
Fruit trees are frequently
planted on home grounds, but
why not include a few of the
newer nut trees in your planting
plans? They are uecorative and
in addition to their beauty they
will bear edible crops in two or
Ail nut trees do best when
planted in good garden soil.
Hickories, ha-’0' and pecans
ill do fairly well on so-calle
jjoor soil, hen . r, however,
that no varieties of nuts will
make satisiactory growth or pro
duce well on soil that is poorly
Most varieties of nuts bear bet
ter if several trees of the same
sort are planted fairly close to
each other, as cross-pollination is
necessary to insure a good crop
European filberts and Ameri
can hazelnuts can be used to take
the place of tall hedges. When
used for hedge purposes you are
assured of good cross - pollination.
The American hazelnut bears fine
nuts of good size, one of which
is illustrated in the accompanying
Also illustrated is the Chinese
chestnut. This variety does not
grow into trees of majestic size,
but it bears excellent nuts and is
highly resistant to the blight that
has nearly eliminated the Ameri
can chestnut. It is necessary to
plant two or more chestnut, not
over 25 feet apart, to insure a
crop of nuts. Burrs begin to form
five or six years after planting.
The northern hardy pecan, il
lustrated, is rapid growing and
makes a beautiful shade tree.
When it comes into bearing it
will yield nuts of delicious quality.
The Chinese walnut, illustrated,
is similar in size, shape and
flavor to the English walnut. It is
extremely winter hardy and will
produce a high yield of large nuts.

_ A complete new Easter outfit

suit at $40 is the dressmaker cape

soft spring green wool, the suit
has a skirt slightly full and a
figure-hugging jacket buttoned to
the neck. Buttoned on at the
shoulders and the upper part of
the sleeve is a graceful capelet

Good quality rayon faille suits,
dressier but less versatile than

and brown at B. Altman's for
$40. The cutaway is the most pop
