C. Republic S555 « Your lecul Travel Agent CARRY YOUR FUNDS IN COOKS TRAVELERS CHEQUES \ Colorful Plants May Be Grown For Christmas By W. H. Youngman When Christmas flowers are men tioned most people think of the poinsettia, with its tiny yellow flow ers surrounded by showy red bracts. In spite of its susceptibility to loss of foliage due to over-watering or to sudden changes of temperature, we all like it for its bright Christ masy colors. (There are pink and white flowered poinsettias, but they are grown only to a limited extent.) Poinsettias require a warm room, above 60 degrees, and a situation that is protected from drafts. A few chilling drafts from an opened door and the plants begin to lose their leaves. Over-waterine is an other cause of defoliation, but this is easily overcome with care. It seldom pays to keep a plant over from one season to the next because of the difficulty in handling. With a suitable situation—a sunny window protected from sudden changes in temperature—-they may be kept growing until the flower bracts drop. Then dry them off and rest them in a warm place for three or four months, but do not keep so dry that the stems wither. When they have rested the plants should be cut back and brought into a warm, sunny room and given water and plant food. In May the pot, may be set out of doors in a warm, sunny situation where it may make strong growth. Even with this care the plants do not always bloom the second year. For most people a new plant each year is preferred to the work and possible disappoint ment of growing this Christmas flower. Cyclamen Also Pretty. Besides the poinsettia there are several other worth-while flowers for the Christmas season, some of them easier to grow. The cycla men is fully as showy, with its red petals sharply reflexed and appear ing above the green, heart-shaped leaves, which have a grayish cast due to the white markings along the veins. There are lovely pink, white and combinations of colored flowers as well as varying forms of petals for those who wish "to grow something different. The cyclamen may be raised from seed or corms, although the flow ers of the latter do not compare too favorably with those from seed. For the home it is better to pur chase plants each season than to grow your own since there are a number of diseases and insect pests that make this practice rather diffi cult for the inexperienced grower. Cyclamen do best in a cooler sit uation than that required by the poinsettia. A night temperature of near 50 degrees and not much over 60 degrees in the daytime is essential if they are to have the long flowering period which is pos sible with them. Watering is a difficult problem that is best met by placing the pot in a pan of wa ter so as to keep the foliage and the surface soil almost dry. A third plant that is fairly com mon in this area is the Jerusalem or Christmas cherry. This showy little plant with its bright red or orange fruits is attractive. How ever, it has its problems, being verv susceptible to gas fumes and drafts. Like the cyclamen, the Jerusalem cherry does best in a cool situation. Should Be Pruned. The Jerusalem cherry may be raised from seed (sown in Febru ary) and the plants may be held over for a second or third year of Use. After the winter season is past the plants should be pruned, cut ting the branches back to 2 or 3 inch stubs. As soon as warm weath er is settled the potted plants may be set out in the garden in a shel tered spot, where they will grow into large, showy specimens. Addi tional plants may be started rather aneilar frnm the nmnincTR Among the more unusual Christ mas season plants are the Christ mas (Meloir) begonia, the pepper plant, and the Otaheite orange. The Christmas begonia is a lovely plant that belongs to the tuberous rooted group which has received so much attention in recent years. They begin flowering in November and carry, on into January. They are almost as showy as the sum mer flowering types, and are avail able in single, semidouble and dou ble forms in several named varieties. The corms are normally planted in May .for the winter-flowering season, although this lovely plant may be raised from seed sown in November or December of the pre vious year. The begonias do best in a partially shaded situation and during the winter seasoh prefer a cool night temperature and a moist atmosphere. The latter is the most difficult condition to meet in the average home. The corms will last for several years and *ew plants may be raised from leaf cuttings. Plant Has Bright Fruit. The pepper plant can be used In place of the Jerusalem cherry since there is not a great deal of differ ence In appearance of the bushy plants with their bright red fruit. Some gardens use varieties with large fruits which, of course, do have a heavier or massive effect. The pepper plant if relatively easily grown from seed sown in the early summer and the plants are kept in pots. They need a rich, fairly moist soil and full sun to make good growth. The small fruited varieties make the best plants. The cherry pepper is usually chosen for this purpose. Some may desire those types which are grown for orna mental purposes while others will Drefer an edible fruited variety. The Otaheite orange is not un common in the florists trade, al though they are seldom to be seen during the Christmas season in homes. The ornamental fruits which reach 2 inches in diameter on the small compact bushes are the main reason for their culture, although the fragrant white flowers are attractive. The fruits are in edible. | The Otaheite orange is not diffi cult to grow and may be kept in pots for several years. They need a fairly warm situation in a sunny window, moderate moisture and an occasional feeding. Other plants for the holiday sea son consist for the most part of those which can be forced into bloom. They include such attrac tive flowers as the azaleas and bulb ous plants, including the gladiolus and t^ie lilies-of-the-valley. Most of these are too well known to need more than mentioning here. They are all attractive and add much to the cheer of the holiday season. They are commonly grown or bought for home decoration, and are mo6t acceptable gifts. Glazed and painted pots require Ins watering than do the ordinary clay pots as moisture evaporates more slowly. However, there is more danger of overwatering plants. Fanchon Ash, i, stands in front of authentic Dutch fireplace mantel arranged by her mother, Mrs. Robert Ash, in home of Gen. and Mrs. Charles D. Herron, 7211 Fairfax road, Bethesda (see Garden Club activities). In mantel center is old Dutch clock between Delft containers of mag nolia grandiflora. The Dutch put straw in the wooden shoes and kept a basin of water handy for St. Nicholas’ horses. The shoes—not stockings—were placed before the fire to receive goodies. Apples were provided in case the jolly saint shou Id be hungry. The Bible on the mantel is Dutch, printed in 1818, clasps of gold. The old iron money chest was used to stow the family treasures. —Star Staff Photo.

Christmas Trees Safer in Water Christmas trees may be kept re sistant to Are if placed in water as soon as cut and left there until discarded after the holidays. George W. Trayer, chief of the Forest Products Divisions of the Forest Service, said the water method is preferable to the use of fire-resistant chemicals. The tree should be cut diagonally and placed in a container with the water level maintained above the top of the cut. Freshly cut trees standing in water cannot be ignited by candles or match fires, but, of course, will not withstand a large source of heat. Farm Net Incon Dairymen in This i In Prices Receivec By James Birchfield The farmer fared well in 1947, so well that the Bureau of Agricul tural Economics expects him to net $18,000,000,000 by the close of the year. This would be about one-fifth more than last year. His gross income this year, includ ing home consumption and the rental value of dwellings, in addition to cash receipts, is estimated at $34, 600,000,000, while production ex penses are estimated at $16,600,000, 000. The two last items also are about one-fifth greater than last year. The bureau said cash receipts from farm marketings this year are ten tatively estimated at $30,000,000,000, or 22 per cent above last year. With Government payments of about $340,000,000, cash receipts this , year should total about $30,300,000,000, or 19 per cent more than last year. Government payments this year, the bureau said, are about 60 per cent below last year largely because of the expiration of tHe production payment program for dairy products. Uaa# nnttlA nn/4 phcnn onH IqiyiKc nn June 30, 1946. American farmers marketed about 3 per cent more products this year than last. Marketings of livestock were about the same, while crop marketings were higher, reflecting the sale of the 1946 record corn crop, the huge wheat crop this year and the relatively good cotton crop. The bureau pointed out that while the total marketings of farm com modities did not change greatly from last year, prices for farm prod ucts gained., an average of 19 per cent. During the first six months, the bureau added, higher prices ac counted for about three-fourths of the 39 per cent gain in cash receipts. Dairymen in the Washington milk shed stood near the top in prices received for fluid milk, according to Disease Outbreak In Cattle Reported M. L. Dalton, assistant animal husbandman for the Virginia Ex tension Service, has reported an outbreak of anaplasmosis. a cattle disease, in Central Virginia. Six teen casualties recently were re ported in -one purebred herd in the Eastern section of the State. The disease may be partially con trolled by the use of DDT in killing ticks and other insects. Instru ments used in dehorning or other surgical operations on cattle should be thoroughly sterilized. le Rises 20 Pet. Vrea Stand Near Top l for Fluid Milk an Agriculture Department survey of prices in lear!'"~ cities. Washington a.... dairymen, who received $6.13 per 100 pounds for fluid milk adjusted to 3.5 per cent fat, were topped only by dairymen in the Jackson and Miami (Fla.) area and in the New York milk shed. At Miami milk brought $7.15 per hundredweight, at Jacksonville, $6.85, and at New York from $6.08 to $6.32. At Baltimore, dairymen were paid $5.65 per hundredweight, and at; Richmond, Va„ fluid milk, adjusted! to 3.5 per cent fat, brought $5.88. The current average retail and producer prices are the highest for anv month on record extending back to 1919. Daily milk production per cow in herds are kept by crop correspond ents dropped 2 per cent under last year, but remained 6 per cent above the 1936-1945 average. This year’s production decline, it was said, was the sharpest decline between No vember 1 and December 1 in 23 years, with the exception of 1936. The department said cold, stormy November weather this fall con trasted with mild weather in many dairy sections a year ago, and high costs of grain and concentrates have caused farmers to use supplementary feeds carefully as cows were shifted from pastures to winter rations. eterans' By Maj. Thomas M. Niat A question came in a few days ago about a subject which was very much In the public eye two years ago. That is re-employment of vet erans under section 8 of the old Selective Service Act. The United States Department oi Labor handles re-employment now, but there has been no change in tne re-employment provisions—return ing veteran* are entitled to their old job without loss of pay, status of seniority for a period of one year, provided they apply for their old job within 90 days of discharge and can perform their duties. The Department of Labor tells me these re-employment provisions will stay in effect until "such termit nation date as Congress may effect by joint resolution.” That means that any one who enlists today, or vjho re-enlists, or who still is in the service, will be eligible for re-em ployment rights no matter when he or she gets discharged. And every one who enlists in the future—just so long as it happens before that joint resolution—will also be eligible for re-employment rights no matter when he gets discharged. The question I received was: "Do veterans who go back to their old Jobs have any special rights after their first year of re-employment is over?” The answer is—No. Your local State employment office is the place to go to find out more about your re-employment rights. Ask to see the staff officer there. Query from W. D. C., Pickens, S. C.: “1 received $100 mustering out pay after my first enlistment in the Army. Then I re-enlisted two years later but never received any more mustering-out pay when I got I discharged the second time. What can I do?" The Department of the Army tells me that nobody can draw muster ing-out pay more than once. From F. R. D., Oklahoma City: “I let my National Service Life Insur ance lapse when I got out of the Navy. Now I want to take it up again and convert it. Is that pos sible?" Sure, if you do it on or before July 31, 1948. Day; before yesterday the VA de cided to extend the limit for easy reinstatement of national service life “term” insurance another six months. The date had been De cember 31, this year. All you have to do to reinstate lapsed, •‘term” insurance on or be fore July 31 is to sign a statement that you are in as good physical condition as you were when your insurance lapsed. Then pay two months’ premiums at your old rate, and everything's jake. Matter of fact, you probably will be able to reinstate even after July 31. The rules are that if you can pass a physical exam you can al ways reinstate your “term” insur ance, provided the term hasn't run out. And even if you find yourself with a lapsed “term” policy after that date you don’t have to take the physical exam to reinstate if your insurance has been in a state of lapse for less than three months.

Bishop, concluding a suc cessful term as publicity chairman of the National Capital Dahlia So ciety, constantly contributes useful information on dahlia care. Recog nizing the twin evils of crown rot from moisture and too much drying during winter storage, he offers this technique: "Out the stalk back .to within 3 or 3 inches of the crown. Store clumps upside down 4n containers SHADE TREE I CARE I PHONE CH. 3141 FORMAN & BILLER TREE EXPERT CO. I w = E»t. 1919 ■■■■-" well lined with newspapers to keep out the air as much as possible. Paper cartons, wood boxes, bushel baskets and barrels have been found very satisfactory. Store the con tainers as far away from the fur nace as possible. A temperature of 40 to 50 degree is best. Do not cover stems or stalk with wet pack ing material as this is conducive to crown rot. “After the clumps of roots have been stored for about two or three weeks examine them. If decay has set in trim out any decayed parts and dust with sulphur. Leave ex posed to the air for two or three days before repacking. If the roots show signs of shriveling moisten a newspaper and place over the roots. Shriveling and crown rot are the dahlias’ worst enemies in storage. More clumps and roots are lost in January and February than any other months from improper care. Watch them at intervals to avoid loss.” Coming Events. Williamsburg symposium — Jan uary 19 to 30.
