Dr. David Fairchild Wins High Horticultural Award After 41 Years i
Visited West Africa, South
America, Australia, India,
and Other Countries
Selection Includes Aligator Pear,
Avocado, Dasheen, Guava,
and Jujube
Washington, D. C. Dec. 23.—<NEA)
—After 41 years of activity in the U.
S. department of agriculture, Dr.
David Fairchild, famous botanist and
plant explorer.- has received one of
the highest awards in agriculture, the
George Robert White medal for hor
ticultural work, annually bestowed
by the Massachusetts Horticultural
Few city dwellers know of this
man. But countless farmers praise
him through the numberless plants
which he has introduced into the
United States from foreign countries.
Dr. Fairchild started out in the U.
S. department of agriculture as a
young man in 1889. Today, well past
middle age, this gray-haired man
looks back with pride on the achieve
ments he has accomplished in the
plant world.
His first work with the department
entailed research in plant physiology
and pathology. While in this en
deavor, he and other men in the de
partment became interested in the
wealth of plant material growing in
other parts of the world. Young
Fairchild decided he wanted to in
vestigate and collect these plants for
possible introduction in the United
States. • -
Visits Europe
He went abroad to engage in post
graduate work in plant physiology in
Italy and Germany. On his travels
in Europe, he met Barbour Lathrop,
an American traveler. The two men
found their interests were along the
same line.
Thus the then young botanist
found himself started on the road to
international plant exploring. One
of his first trills with Lathrop took
him to the Far East to lands not pre
viously visited' by a department of
agriculture scientist.
After this trip, in which he found
hundreds of plants new to this coun
try, Dr. Fairclflld returned to de
velop the systematic exploration and
plant introduction of the department
which has since -grown into the pres
* ent office of foreign plant introduc
tion of which he is head.
In his work of exploration, which
took him to West Africa. Senegal,
South America. Australia, India,
South Africa and numerous European
countries, the explorer gathered
about 80.000 varieties of plants.
Among these are the allgator pear,
avocado, dashecn, guava. Jujube and
Micro- Photographer
In his work with plants. Dr. Fair
child became interested in micro
photography, which he uses in his
scientific research. In this field h*»
saw great opportunity of photograph
ing details of plant and animal
structure In a way that would appeal
to the layman and the young.
His work so impressed men outside
of government service that some of
them have contributed largely for
plant gathering expeditions that the
department of agriculture would not
be able to finance alone.
The plant scientist’s wife, younger
daughter of Dr. Alexander Graham
Bell, inventor of the telephone, has
been a great aid in his work. She
collaborated with him in preparing
hb “Book of Monsters,” which pic
tures fhe monster-like characteristics
of many insects.

Government Report Shows
Slight Boost in Fall Plant
ing This Year
Grand Forks. N. D., Dec. 23.—North
Dakota’s 1930 fall seeded rye acreage
Is estimated to be 1.354.000 acres, com
pared with 1,327,000 acres seeded in
the fall of 1929 and with 1,194,000 acres
harvested this fall, according to a re
port of the federal agricultural statis
tician for North Dakota. This estimate
is based on information furnished by
over three thousand farmers repre
senting every section of the state.
The acreage planted this fall is
somewhat larger than was indicated
by the August intentions report, which
was issued at a time when soil mois
ture conditions were not favorable to
seeding fall grain. General rains late
In August in all sections of the state
except the northwest Improved the
moisture situation greatly and resulted
in the increased acreage. The Decem
ber 1 condition of the crop, at 77 per
cent of normal, is 5 per cent below
that of a year ago. but is still some
what better than in the fall of 1928,
when the supply of soil moisture was
far below normal. Condition of the
crop is poorest in the northwest dis
trict. Here a short moisture supply
caused uneven germination and re
tarded growth. Reports indicate that
some fields have been reseeded.
The December report covering the
seeding of winter wheat in the United
States indicates a decrease in the
acreage as compared with 1929. The
1930 acreage of 42,042.000 represents
98.9 per cent of the 42.913.000 acres
planted In 1929. The December 1 con
dition of the crop, at 86.3 per cent of
normal, is above the condition for
this date not only in 1929 but also
in 1928, and is above the ten-year
average condition of 83.2 per cent.
The fall-seeded rye acreage is
placed at 4,158,000 acres, or 4.1 per
cent above the acreage planted in the
fall of 1929 and more than 16 per
cent greater than the 1928 acreage.
The crop on December 1 was below
average for condition and below the
condition as reported on this date for
the last two years.

were played over KFYR at 4:30 p. m.
Tuesday, by experts under the super
vision of Milton C. Work, noted
bridge authority.
The Bidding
South, no trump; West, pass; North
pass; East pass.
The Play
Trick one —West led the six of
clubs; North played the 10, East the
trey and Declarer the nine.
Trick two Declarer led Dummy’s
trey of Diamonds; East played the
seven; Declarer the Ace and West the
King In order to prevent declarer put
ting him In the lead by forcing him
to take the next diamond lead.
Trick three —Declarer led another
Diamond, West played the six; Dum
my the Queen and East the nine.
Trick four Declarer led the Bof
Diamonds from Dummy; East played
the jack and took the trick.
East then led a club which enabled
West to capture the declarer’s guard
ed king and run five clubs, thus sav
ing game.
Commenting on the hand, Mr. Work
complimented Mr. Smith for recog
nizing his chance to make the spec
tacular and difficult exit play He
also called attention to the fact that
Mr. Smith did not monopilze the ex
pert play. On trick one, Mrs. Brad
bury played beautifully, and the trap
she set for Mr. Smith would have
succeeded if he had not been a mas
ter player. Mr. Smith led a small
Club to trick one. and Dummy's Ten
held the trick. Mrs. Bradbury with
King-9-2, played the 9. hoping to de
ceive Mr. Smith into thinking she was
left with a singleton King. If Mr.
Smith had been deceived, he would
have taken the second Diamond trick
with the King and led the Ace of
Clubs, expecting Mrs. Bradbury’s
King to fall. Instead of that, she
would have played the Deuce, and
then would have been able to make
all the rest of the tricks, scoring five

Opinion Expressed in Statement
Made Public by’Federal
Farm Board
Washington, Dec. 23.—(/P) —The na
tion’s farmers are, in the opinion of
the farm board, gradually controlling
a greater volume of their products as
these move through marketing chan
nels to the ultimate consumer.
Of the two mUllon odd farmers
comprising the membership of 12,000
farmer-owned and controlled cooper
ative associations, in the country, the
board said today, more than a mil
lion have been aided through the
agricultural marketing act in the
handling of more than 40 farm crops.
Developments were described in a
new farm board publication covering
activities of the board together with
the organization and marketing plans
of cooperative sales agencies.
Expectation was expressed that
eventually competition among coop
eratives handling the same com
modity wUI be ended. Then, said
the board, “with the majority of pro
ducers inside the master commodity
circle, where the sales are controlled
by a single national marketing or
ganization fanners may be able to
put agriculture on a basis of eco
nomic equality with other industries.”
