LOCUST DAMAGE
WAR1GISSUED
Orchardists Urged to Pay
Particular Attention to
Avoid Loss.
STeclal Dispatch to The Star.
FAIRFAX, Va„ May 30.—As the
shrill cry of the 17-year locust swells
to a greater volume with each morn
ing, growers of orchard trees and
berry and grape plants, es pe
nally, are warned to pay careful at
tention to their trees and plants to
avoid a loss that may assume tre
mendous proportions when the on
slaught. of the pests has passed.
Fairfax County Agricultural Agent
H. B. Derr has announced that if
this year’s crop of the insect lives up
to traditions of former waves, prop
erty owners may expect to suffer
heavy damage to apple, oak, peach
and pear trees, and blackberry, rasp
berry and grape vines. While these
particular plants and trees are not
the only ones that may suffer, past,
experience has shown the greatest
damage to them, the county agent
explained .
in ms warning county Agent i**rr j
declared no pruning of trees and j
plants should be done until the twigs
in which the insects have deposited
their eggs have begun to wilt. When
this occurs, he stated, the twigs should
be carefully cut and burned at once.
To cut the twigs and allow them
to fall to the ground only aids the in
sect to get back into the ground from
which he will come in increasing
numbers, 17 years hence.
It was explained that the damage to
pltnt.s and trees comes when the fe
male cicada, by means of a small
lance-like appendage, makes row after
row of slits in twigs in which she
deposits her eggs. This in turn kills
the twig, which later drops to the
ground, allowing the freshly hatched
insect to return to the soil where it
lives for another period principally
under tree roots.
Because of the fact the eggs are
inside the twig, woodpeckers and other
birds and insects cannot reach them,
as in the case of insects that merely
deposit their eggs on the bark of trees
or limbs.
The county agent stated he has
been advised by Dr. W. J. Schoene.
State entomologist, that the current
wave of the pest will hit hardest in
Northern Virginia, and to date he de
clared the town of Fairfax, especially
the court house green, appears the
ienter.
Novel Kitchen Finish.
A pleasant kitchen seen recently has
a white dado banding the room to a
point four feet from the floor. Above
this, the walls are gloss-painted a
deep rose color. Woodwork is enameled
white. The floor covering is black,
white and rase. Canisters, kitchen
chairs and table are trimmed in Delft
blue.

closed the back door after bringing

its blurred penciling, he was about
to crumple and discard it when he
noticed a few scrawled lines which
stunned him.
"Can’t help it,” he read. "I had to

I’ve thought of it for a long time. I'm

Martin went cold. He could feel his

knees weakened under him.
No explanation. Didn't she love
him? Hadn't he been good to her?
Was—was there another man? He
grew sick at the thought and braced
himself against the stove.
He held the paper before him in
cold, trembling hands; then folded It
many times,1 creasing each fold hard
with his finger nails. He put the little

Simply he threw himself into a
kitchen chair—his own breakfast

he shouldn’t have been so stodgy at

I am selfish,” he chided himself. His
dinner grew cold while he mused.
Suddenly he jumped up and paid his
bill. He must hurry home. There
might be a telephone message.
He hurried up the stairs, but held

I
I
BY J. W. WELLINGTON.
IN THE last decade, there has been
no innovation in gardening to
compare with the use of peat
moss as an improver of soil texture
and as a mulch for perennial borders.
It has particular value in soils of the
two extremes, namely, stiff clays and
light sand. Most of the local home
gardens are located on clay and those
gardeners that incoporated peat in
the upper soil layer have been re
warded by a more easily worked soil
and a soil that holds moisture better
during dry periods. Each particle of
peat moss acts as a sponge and re
tains moisture as a reservoir for the
tiny roots.
Most of the peat now used in
American gardens is imported from
Northern Europe despite the fact
that there are thousands of acres
of peat in the United States. The
European peat is apparently of a more
desirable nature than American peat,
but it is to be hoped that methods
of handling American peats will be
developed.
Some companies have added fertiliz
ing nutrients to pest, but whether
i this is a desirable addition is not 1
L fully known. Peat itself is of little 1
value as plant food and it would ' 1
seem as though added nutrients 1
might offer a means of making the
material even more useful in the j'
garden if the additional cost Is not too !;
great. Peat and sand, half and half, i
! make a good material in which to j
root cuttings.
Lawn Grasses.
A CCORDING to grass specialists at •
Cornell University, most all of j [
our lawn grasses are natives of Europe i
but have been here so long as to be- |!
come fairly well naturalized. How- !.
ever, this foreign origin explains some ; 1
j of the difficulties that are encountered i'
in developing good lawns. Blue grass. I
through centuries of adaptation to j
the cool climate of Northern Europe. :
is not able to endure easily our hot
Midsummer periods. Usually this i
! poor performance in Midsummer is
| ascribed to water shortage but the
Cornell investigators compared rain
fall in England with that of - New
j York and found that New York had
1 more Summer precipitation on the
average. However, much of the Sum
mer rain in England falls quietly and 1
i not in heavy downpours and is hence
‘ more available to grasses. White .
! clover in the lawn mixture is desir- '
able since it grows better in Midsum- 1
mer than does the blue graste and. ; j
through its legume nature, contributes
nitrogen to the soil to the betterment
of its associate, the blue grass.
It Is evident that lawn grasses need ’;
the study of the scientific agricultur- j
1st, that is. the study of desirable
combinations for different regions and |
possibly the isolation of types that j j
would better endure Summer heat. | j
There are a few grass specialists in j ]
the commercial field and. although . (
lawn grass seed from established j •
seedsmen costs more in the beginning, j
it may indeed be well worth the t i
initial cost. The great expenste in ]
preparing a new lawn 1s, after all, J :
in the soil preparation. In most j (
years, September is the ideal month ;
for establishing new lawns because |
the temperature Is descending, mois
, ture Is usually more abundant and
inferior grasses, such as crab graSb,
are less of competitors at that sea
1 son. To tide over until September.
I one can sow Italian rye grass, which
germinates and grows rapidly but is ,
i of a temporary nature.
Climbing Roses.
'T'HERE are many reasons why home
; A gardeners like to grow climbing j
: roses, namely, their astonishing
l vigor, their great mass of flowers and.
I in most varieties, a comparative free
i dom from devastating pests, such as
' black spot. Yet in the past two or
three years gardeners have had many
heartaches over their climbing roses.
Varieties, such as Dr. W. Van Fleet. •
which had come to be considered as
almost fully hardy did not always sur
vive the Winter and especially the
climbing varieties of hybrid teas
proved too tender during the recent
Arctic-like temperatures. Certain
roses, such as Dorothy Perkins,
American Pillar and Christine
Wright, were able to endure. Yellow
climbers, such as Golden Yellow
Climber Jacotte and Emily Gray, all
show’ed a lack of satisfactory resist
ance during the past two Winters.
If we assume that severe Winters
are to be expected in this general re
gion, there is definite need for an
entirely new race of hardier climbing
as well as bush roses. No one cares
to grow a rose plant to full size and
beauty to see it occasionally cut to
the ground by Winter. The time to
prune climbers is Just after the plants
have bloomed, saving young canes
and cutting out mo6t of the old canes
at their base. One needs a pair of
long-handled shears and a pair of
stout leather gloves to do the job
safely for the climbers, with one or
wo exceptions, such as Thousand
3e,.uties, are equipped by nature to
•esist invaders. It might well be
toped that when the breeder develops
tardier climbing roses he also con
sider thornless types.
The Vegetable Garden,
J'HERE are many simple devicea
that may be practiced to insure
in early vegetable garden if one has
he time and Inclination. Lima beans
ind sweet corn may be planted in
tots and held in a cold frame until
ill danger of frost is past. When set
n the garden these plants are ready
o go ahead irrespective of cold, wet
ioil. It Is too late this year to resort
0 surh practices for open soli sowing
s now mast logical. Radishes
tlanted at this time are certain to
>ecome infested with white worms,
ret by covering a frame with coarse
cheese cloth it is possible to grow
adishes until the hot weather of
lune stops their successful growth,
rhe young cabbage plants may be
irotected from the same worm that
nfests the radishes by placing a disk
>f tar paper clasely about the root or
>y saturating the soil about the roots
with a solution of mercury bichloride,
1 part to 1,000 of water. Cut worms,
he burden of newly set tomatoes,
'abbage. peppers and the like, may be
joLsoned by sprinkling a mash made
>f wheat bran, a little Paris green
ind thin sugar syrup.
The Cold Frame.
A LTHOUGH one thinks generally
of cold frames and hot beds in
connection with early Spring plants,
here is no reason why the cold frame
ihould not be in use the whole year,
rhe side walls should be made of
irick or concrete rather than wood,
o as to better resist termites and de
■ay. A sash for early Spring and a
attice rover for Summer complete
he equipment. The cold frame is
eally the ideal location In which to
trow seedlings of such plants as
tolumbine, delphiniums. trolllus,
teums and the like. The soil, if
nixed with leaf mold, peat moss and
and will not become hard and the
attice covering will prevent too rapid
trying or injury from heavy rainfall,
fhe cold frame is a fine place for
ootlxig soft cuttings and becomes
n Summer a small propagating house
n which many plants may be grown
dr subsequent planting in the open
jarden when they have become large
in strong.
rH#n Vatai
PJHINA ASTERS fail in many home
gardens because the soil has be
•ome infested with an organism of
he fusarium group, which persists
n the soil long after the owner has
tiven up the crop in despair. This
organism comes in with purchased
seeds that have not been treated with
nercury disinfectants and one can
not be certain that the seed is
tree of disease unless he treats it
nimself. Fortunately, a much better
solution is in sight since plant breeders
nave developed varieties of asters so
resistant to this disease that they
•an be grown in badly Infested soil.
Certain seed dealers now offer such
seed in their catalogues. Yet the
story is not fully told since there is
mother disease of virus nature that
nay be brought to the asters by leaf
noppers flying in from various weeds
>f related species. From these hoppers
ind their burden of disease, there has
>een found only one sure prevention
ind that is to grow asters under
:oarse cheese cloth tents. However,
idth the fusarium resistant strains,
;here is a fair chance of success,
particularly in city gardens where
seeds are scarce.
The snapdragon is another fine
garden flower that is beset with
trouble, namely, a rust disease that
jreaks out in brown ruptures all over
the leaves. This trouble bids fair
to disappear shortly altogether as
;he California and other agricultural
experiment stations are developing
completely immune kinds fully as
beautiful as the old. In a few years,
such seed will be available at moderate
prices.
While on the subject of floral
diseases, the hollyhock rust Is another
serious disease that offers a great deal
of trouble to home gardeners every
where. This disease defoliates the
plants even before they commence to
bloom. Persistent dusting with pre
pared sulphur from the early Spring
onward will protect the plants. The
California station is working on the
breeding of Immune hollyhocks and
gardeners may well hope for success
in this direction.
Wherever one travels in the North
eastern 8tates, he may observe fre
quent planting of the yew as a
foundation evergreen. Its capacity
for holding its leaves and color
throughout the entire year seems to
make the yew very desirable. With
the new upright growing forms com
ing into the market, there would ap
pear to be an Ideal hedge plant that
would be more beautiful than privet
and not require the Incessant clipping
in Spring and Summer.
Rose of Sharon is sometimes used
as a hedge with good effects, but Is,
of course, bare In Winter. This shrub
may be severely pruned In early
Spring for the flowers are borne on
the new shoots.

Porch boxes that hold water with
out leakage are apt to become oVer
moist and foul and the plants fail
to grow properly. Practically, one
can overcome this defect by placing
one container Inside another with
holes in the first to permit the out
flow of excess water. Very few plants,
except purely aquatics, enjoy stand
ing in .water all the while. This is
why there Is a hole in the bottom
of all flower pots and why many
plants will flourish on slightly slop
ing soil, from which excess water can
easily flow. Where water stands, oxy
gen cannot enter freely and the plant
actually may smother.
jrem-niuc me viaraen.
\ ,f ANY of the English and some of
the American books on garden
ing devote considerable space to the
trenching of soil as a necessary means
of preparing the garden for flowers
and vegetables. Roses, in particular,
are said to require this treatment,
which essentially is spading two or
more depths. The name trenching
is derived from the fact that a trench
Is first made by throwing out the top
layer of soil and then working deeply
Into the second layer. At the same
time, manure or fertilizer is incorpo
rated Into the lower soil before the
trench is refilled. At once, the
gardener can realize that this is a
laborious operation and, frankly, one
that does not commend itself to
the busy home gardener who has to
do his own work. Too, many of our
local soils are relatively shallow and,
if one digs into the subsoil, he is likely
to strike coarse gravel or equally
worthless material. Theoretically, if It
were possible to work abundant
manure down into the deeper layers,
it would be very desirable but, in
most cases, the manure, as well as
time is lacking. Having seen very
fine gardens developed without this
painstaking care, the writer is in
clined to doubt the practical need of
such strenuous effort.
In planting individual shrubs and
trees, it is well to dig deeply and dis
card the lower layer altogether, work
ing in good top soil. This is trench
ing in a modified form and brings good
results, but is far different from
working over a whole garden.
Violet Shades Exquisite.
Red-violet and blue-violet are ex
quisite shades that are too rarely used
in room decoration. Because of thei*
Intensity they should not be selected
for large surfaces. These two tores,
found in iris, combine well with yel
low-green. gold, deep green and straw
color.

‘AIR-CONDITIONING ’
TERMED MISUSED
Manufacturers' Association
Official Holds Word Basis
of Misrepresentation.
"Air-conditioning and air condi
tioned, are much misused words and
are often the basis of voluntary or
Involuntary misrepresentation," warn
ed William B. Henderson of Washing
ton, executive vice president of the
Air-Conditioning Manufacturers Asso
ciation, in an address before the
Building Owners and Mangers' Con
vention held this week in Dallas, Tex.
He drew attention to the fact that
the National Better Business Bureau,
after a thorough survey of authorities
in the field, had defined air-condi
tioning as "the scientific preparation
and simultaneous control of the atmo
sphere within a structure and that
Summer air-conditioning means at
least the cooling, dehumidifylng and
circulating of air. Winter air-con
ditioning means at least the heating,
humidifylhg and circulating of air."
The United States Federal Trade Com
mission has taken a generally similar,
view of what constitutes air-condi
tioning. "The only assurance of pro
tection a buyer of air-conditioning
has." continued Mr. Henderson. "1*
to deal only with suppliers of air
conditioning who have a record of ex
perience and competence in the air
conditioning field and who have the
ability and desire to back up their
guarantee of performance.”
Not a New Art.
"Tile advertising of ‘air-conditioned’ i
shirts, underwear, shoes and other
merchandise was only amusing,” said
the speaker, "for the truth was so 1
obvious to even the mo6t gullible buyer
that it really could not be classed as
deception.”
It was pointed out that air-condi
tioning is not a new art. It has been
generally used by American industry
for over 25 years. Today hundreds
of varied industries, from heavy steel
products to cosmetics, use air-condi
tioning as an Integral part of their
industrial processing.
Factory employes reacted so ben
eficially to air-conditioned environ- j
ment that today's popularity of human
comfort air-conditioning is the nat
ural result. Mr. Henderson cited many
Interesting instances of improved |
health resulting from air-conditioning.
The American Tobacco Co., in
P— 1
Philadelphia showed a net cash profit
of $23,372 from its air conditioning
installation in one year as a result
of the improved health and efficiency
of its employes working under manu
factured weather conditions
A survey of merchants disclosed
that greatly-increased business vol
ume, decreased merchandise spoilage
and higher net profits followed the
uae of air conditioning in their stores.
"The complete acceptance of air
conditioning by the American public t
as a commonplace feature of dally j
life is undeniably grooving buying
and living habits of the people to |
air conditioned environment,” said
Mr. Henderson.
FARMERS’ SONS AIDED
Resettlement Helps Young: Be
come Established on Own Farms.
One of the most encouraging de- ;
velopments in the rehabilitation pro
gram in Maryland under the Resettle- |
ment Administration is the assistance
given a number of fanners' sons in
becoming established on farms, ac
cording to E. I. Oswald, State director.
He points out that many of these
young men would normally go to the
cities for employment in industry;
during recent years they have not
been able to secure employment there
and as a consequence have been de
pending upon agriculture for a liveli
hood. Many of these young people,
he says, have married and are en
deavoring to support their families as
laborers, either on their parents’
farms or farms of neighbors. They |
are intelligent and industrious, but
lack of opportunity prevents them
from adequately providing for their
families.
