Governor Spry Writes to Judge
Governor William Spry has written
Juvcnllo Judgo II. A. Podorson, and
tho school authorities calling attention
to tho opportunity Just extended to
tho school children of tho stato to
contribute toward tho purchaso of tho
silver botvIco for tho battleship
"Utah." Tho governor is urging tho
matter because of tho nearness to the
tlmo of closing tho schools for tho
year, and is very anxious for tho
school authorities to give tho matter
lmmcdtato action.
Each of tho school children who con
tribute to tho fund receives a certi
ficate signed by tho governor and
committee. A great many of tho
schools of tho stnto havo reported
and tho rcsponso to tho invitation to I
contribute toward tho purchase of tho '
silver servlco Is moro general than
tho committee first .had hoped for.
It would bo n source of universal
regret should Cacho county fall bo
hind In this matter. It Is tho first
'opportunity of tho kind wo havo had,
and ono that will perhaps not occur
again,. at least whllo tho present gen
eration of school children aro In tho
district schools. Tho matter should bo
taken up at onco and pressed with
determination nnd vigor, in order
that each child may havo tho privi
lege of contributing to tho fund, nnd
receive n certificate that ho may
keop through life, showing that ho
contributed toward furnishing tho sil
ver eorvlco for tho battleship named
In honor of the Stnte of Utah.

As yet Millvllle Not Greatly
In n teccnt Isauo of the Republican
n story was published from Mlllvillo
with regarded to n scourgo of tho al
falfa wcovll at that place Bellovclng
thnt sonio mlstako hnd been mndo or
that tho reports of tho scourgo wcru
greatly exaggerated, we mado enquir
ies, nnd tho result of thoso enquiries
It seems that M. E, L. Morgan of
Millvllle, a former resident of Salt
Lake County, recently visited his old
homo and was shown tho alfalfa wco
vll In tho fields In that neighborhood.
On returning homo ho went out to his
own alfalfa fields nnd in making a
search discovered what appeared to
hlra to bo tho samo wcovll In nbun
dnnco. Further Investigation showed
that thoy woro present in nearly nil
tho fields around thnt soctlon. This
wns communicated to so mo of his
neighbors nnd ono of them furnished
tho Information which resulted in tho
publication in tho Logan Republican
of recent date.
On Investigation, It was found that
the wcovll which Mr. Morgan found
ns much moro common In red clover
fields than In thoso of puro alfalfa
nnd that in tho section In tho lower
part of Mlllvillo wh"r? Mr. Morgon
rosldcs thnt almost nit of tho nlfalfa
fields aro mixed with red clover. In
fact, tho water Is so clcoa to tho stir
faco that tho clover thrives much hot
ter than tho nlfalfa docn. Ono young
field of alfalfa wbb found, howovor,
In which thoro nppearcd to bo no rod
clover and In this field a long search
only rovealed two weovils nnd thooo
Irobably BtrayB from tho nearby clo
ver fields. In somo places tho wtovlls
woro found ns thick us thoy occurred
In places In Snlt Lake Valloy whoro
tho entire crop of last Benson was de
stroyed. It this had been tho nlfnlfa
weovll, therefore, last yoa'r'a hay crop
In thin section would havo boon prac
tically ruined. Instead, nn examina
tion of tho hay stack from this field
showed that tho nlfnlfa wns not nt
all tnjulrcd last Reason,
A number of specimens of tho weo
vll were brought to tho laboratory and
compared with tho true alfalfa weovll.
They were much smaller, lack tho
light brown color of that speclos and
aro qulto dlfforcut iu tho structuro of
tho snout, so much different in this
cfiarnctcc, in fact, that UjIb rather
doubtful ns to whether thoy feed on
clover, ns tho snout la too largo, ap
parently, to oven boro n clover atom.
Thoy will bo sent rast to specialists
fr determination.
In tho meantime, It is certain thnt
thoy aro not tho alfalfa wcovll and
that thoro is uo dasher to tho alfalfa
from this bource, that oven If thoy
prove to bo 11 red clovor weevil that
thoy aro apparently not very Injurious
ns tho clover was not Injured lu this
locality last yoar and red clover Is
only a very minor crop in Cacho Val
loy In nny enso.
A word of caution might Mjo given
In this connection. Tho Introduction of
tho nlfalfa weovll Into Cacho Valley
wlllmcan nn annual loss of $100,000
or moTo to tho farm'ng community
yes, probably two or tbrco times that
much In consideration of our dairy
intorests nnd thu ruin that it would
bring to them. Therefore, It behoovos
oyoryono to keep a constant and sharp
lookout for tho appearand of tho wco
vll in tho fields or thia valloy. Tho
first appearhnco thnt will ho noticed
will undoubtedly bo tho whitonlng of
tho loaves noar tho top of tho growing
alfalfa somotlmo In Juno or early In
July. And if oxnmlncd closely theso
leavos will bo found to havo had tho
grcon coloring matter Btrlppcd off
and tho baro framo work exposed. A
curled green larva with light stripes
will bo found doing this work. It Is
of llttlo tiso to sci'rch nt this time for
tho weovils themselves ns It would
bo Imposslblo to find them In nny
field whoro thoy had not boon num
erous enough tho previous year to
havo seriously Injured tho crop. It
