There are two things that the rail
road strikers are standing for that
never can win :
By their actions the assume to say
"I will not work and you shall not."
"We are willing to accept the find
ings of the labor board when it raises
our wages,, but will not submit when
it reduces our wages." , .
Every person, be he union sympa
thizer or not, is bound to see that
such a position will not be counten
anced by the 'majority of the people.
If the union element of the country
: which is admitted not to exceed ten
millions thinks it is reasonable or
possible for that small minority of
the one hundred and ten millions of
people to control the other one hun
dred million, they are doomed to dis
appointment. If the railroad workers only could
see it, they are doing the very worst
.thing possible for their future inter
set. Even now there are many thous
and trucks hauling millions of tons of
freicht. and nassenoer hnue nrp
hauling many thousands of people that
were formerly hauled by the' railroads.
The present strike will do more to
impress people with the necessity for
more good roads than anything that
has happedend for years. The more
good roads the more trucks and pas
senger busses and the less strikes will
effect the people as a whole.
Within teu years the number of men
employed by railroads will be many
thousands less than at present for the
mofor buss will drive the railroads
more and more to tlxe long haul, which
means that fewer men will be needed
,io operate the trains.
A .There never was a situation so bad
i"J nal tne Public would not find a way
f io remedy it. i'nis present tiniair
and unreasonable strike is sure to
drift' the public to a remedy that will
utterly defeat the strike idea for all
However, the fault is not all with
the raihvorkers. 'Hie time will not be
long in coming when paying a presi
dent of a railroad $50,000 to $100,000
a year will have to stop, Also having
from three to six vice presidents on
huge salaries, along with a multitude
of other relatives and friends on the
pay roll who render little or no ser
vice, but who are allowed to draw
' a handsome salary, and the public
forced to foot the bill, will also have
All the necessary remedies will come

"God riries and the government at
Washington still lives." No one need
fear the disolution of this government
it has stood many hard shocks and is
better able to stand today than ever
before. True patriotism dwells in the
hearts of the majority of our people
, whether or not wc realize it. That i
patriotism will assert itself when nec-

By T. F. Peck, Commissioner of Agriculture
THE MEXICAN BEAN BEETLE
The following article on the Mex
ican Bean Beetle has been prepared
by G. M. Bentley, State Entomologist.
Chief among the insect pests in
Tennessee at present is the Mexican
Bean Beetle. Dozens of letters with
speciment are coming to the office of
the State Entomologist, Knoxville,
Tennessee, daily. If you have not
done so, acquaint yourself with this
most destructive pest and realize the
heavy losses that fcave already been
made, and probably greater devasta
tion awaits the agricultural interests
of the state from the injury of this
insect than yet known. It is a mat
ter of considerable alarm and every
one should learn to recognize the
beetle in its different stages and how
best to control it. From the stand
point of agriculture the pest may be
even more serious than the boll weevil.
The latter affects only one crop, where
as the bean lady-bird beetle destroys
the most essential crops of the South,
as' peas and beans are grown iQr hu
man food, for stock food, as forage,
and are very necessary for soil im
provement and the conservation of
EASY TO RECOGNIZE The pres
ence can best bo determined by ex
amining the leaves of garden beans,
lo hnd those with leaves eaten in
irregular patches with the thin upper
tissue of leafe entirely or partly
covering those eaten areas of the leaf;
or to find yellow and dry leaves with
practically all of the body of leaf
eaten, the fine net-work of leaf alone
remaining, is the first thing to look
for. Finding bean leaves thus in
jured look beneath these leave.s
More than likely you will find some
stage lof 'the bean beetle. Finding
yellow or copper colored lady-bird
like beetles about one-fourth inch in
length with 16 small dark dots upon
their backs, you may feel reasonably
sure that they are the adults of the
Mexican Be?n B-:tle. To find bright
yellow, soft and spiny-bodied insects
from one-eighth to three-eighths
inch in length feeding on under sur
faces of bean leaves is almost posi
tive evidence of the presence of the
young beetles. Immediately report
your finding and send in a tight,
tin box some specimens to your State
Entomologist, University of Tennes-,
see Knoxville, Tennessee.
HABITS The pest breeds rapidly
and feeds voraciously. In 3 to 6 days
it vvill ruin an entire crop. Its life
history n the West confirmed by ob
servations in Tennessee indicates that
4 weeks are required for its
velopment from egg to adult. It pas
ses the winter hidden away beneath
rubbish, trash, leaves, stems, etc., in
the adult stage to become active in
March if food plants can be found.
Eggs are laid in yellow masses con
taining from 50 to -75 eggs in each.
Occasionally we find a smaller egg
mass. The female may deposit her
eggs on the underside of bean leaves
or on nearby growths. The young
feed entirely on the underside of the
WOW SPREAD Adults are strong
fliers and by this means they infest
new ;ircas The eggs, young or pupa,
may be conveyed on fresh or dried
host plants or 111 case ot pupa and

The bean beetle seems to
higher sections of the ,
state, although by no means do we
CinH them alone in such sections. Last
year heavy infestations occurred at

AND METHODS FOR ITS CONTROL.
Signal and Lookout mountains and in
many sections of the highland rim in
Cumberland Mountains. It is sup
posed to be a native of Mexico and
first established in arid regions of the
Western United States perhaps in
Colorado. From Thence on alfalfa
hay to Birmingham, Alabama, possibly
in 1918, but certainly in 1919. In the
summer of 1920 reports of the beetle
were sent to Alabama Entomologist.
In the spring of 1921, it was discov
ered in Chattanooga section of Ten
nessee. On June 2nd specimens were
found 11 miles north of Chattanooga
and by November it was located in 32
counties in Tennessee. A very care
ful study of the dissemination of this
pest in Tennessee was conducted by
the United States Bureau of Ento
mology, and the Tennessee Board of
Entomology in co-operation. Since
1922 the spread has continued and to
day it occurs in many new territories.
Almost daily new areas are being ad
ded. To complete this study of spread
of the beetle in Tennessee you can
render great assistance by sending in
tight tin boxes specimens taken from
any section of the state, to G. M.
Bentley, State Entomologist, Knox
HOST PLANTS Among the food
plants the Mexican Bean Beetle are
all varieties of table beans, including
cowpeas, shell beans, lima, or -butter
beans and all kinds of field beans, soy
beans, exceptions being taken on
English peas and velvet beans. May
occur and eat portions of many plants
grown near to host plants.
CONTROL Keep watch of bean
plants finding a few bean beetles pres
ent, destroy by hand picking the in
sects or brushing them. Several
plants infested should be treated by
thoroughly dusting of under surfaces
of host plants with one part calcium
arsenate and nine parts hydrated lime
well mixed. Never ue acid or ordi
nary lead arsenate or Paris Green.
The bean foliage is susceptible to ar
senical injury. Where the infesta
tion is serious only bufh varieties of
beans should -be planted as they caii
be dusted easier and they mature soon
er. Where the infestation is light,
however, pole beans can be success
fully grown with a little care. There
are several types of dusters on the
market adapted to different condi
tions, ror gardens or small acreages
a hand duster is practical. A depend
able and practical liquid spray at pres
ent is not known, since basic lead
arsenate and magnesium arsenate are
de-!not commonly available,
CLEAN CULTURE Leave no ac
cumulation of weeds, grass, leaves or
stems under which adults may pass
CONCLUSION Look for the bean
beetle and finding it act at once to
control it. It is a matter of great im
portant especially to the inhabitants
of those states where the pest occurs,
Colorado, Alabama, Tennessee, Geor
gia, Kentucky, North and South Caro
line. Its ability to spread rapidly and
to completely destroy esseutialcrops
also considering the fact that the host
plants of this insect are generally
grown and are of great importance for
food and soil fertility, and also that
the insect will survive a temperature
