CITRUS EXPERTS

Give Talks to Growers
on Frosted Fruit
Orchardists to Be Told How
to Recover From Recent
Cold Snap
BERKELEY, Feh. 11.—The college of
agriculture of the University of Cali
fornia will this week send through
southern California agricultural and
horticultural specialists, in a special
university extension train, to reduce
the losses of orange and lemon grow
ers from the late frost blight, and to
begin a method of cultivation which
will shortly refctore the frozen trees.
Economically, this mission of the
college of agriculture ranks as the
most important emergency measure the
extension service has ever undertaken.
Ever since the frost queries have been
made at the university for advice in
methods of reducing the losses.
Dr. Thomas Forsyth Hunt, dean of
the college, after a conference with
President Wheeler, determined upon
the relief expedition.
FLORIDA EXPERT ON* TRAIN'
On the train with Doctor Hunt will
be Dr. H. J. Webber, director of the
citrus experiment station at Riverside;
Prof. E. J. Wickson of the chair of
horticulture; Prof. Warren T. Clarke,
director of university extension in ag
riculture; Dr. J. Eliot Coit, professor
of citrology; Prof. J. S. Burd, in charge
of the bureau of fertilizer control;
Jacob B. Neff, who represents the uni
versity in farmers' institute work in
south, and several other faculty
members.
Doctor Webber was in Florida as a
government citrus expert at the time,
of the famous freeze of 1894. For
years he has studied the problem of
frost prevention and he is a world
authority on frost resistant varieties.

POINTERS FOR GROWERS
The specialists will show growers
how to distinguish the frozen from
undamaged fruit; how to care for the
injured groves, and how to offset their
present loss by planting between the
rows of trees such crops as tomatoes,
lima beans, barley, wheat and sugar
beets.
To pick out the frozen fruit a test
has been devised. The fruit will be
immersed in a bath of wood alcohol
and. water. The good will sink, but
that which was frozen will float, the
juices being dried out and the weight
reduced.
Tree surgery will also be demon
strated, to show the growers how to
cut away the dead tissue from the
limbs and to cauterize the wound with
burned coal tar. At the same time
Immune species or specimens will be
selected and used for grafting to make
all the groves as far as possible re
sistant to frost.
