in the fall, and this should be done
by making cuts an inch or two be

In case of serious outbreaks of fire

of preventive sprays during the

The disease, unless checked,
spreads from the blossoms into the
spurs and then to other portions of
the tree. Aphids and leaf hoppers
may carry the infection from dis

which are healthy. The bacteria
which cause fire blight cause can
kers to appear on the trees, and
these cankers are centers from which
the bacteria spread.
Fire blight affects pears, and dis
eased pear trees often have more
cankers than infected apple trees.
The symptoms of fire blight are
sudden dying of whole branches or
portions of them. The diseased parts
turn brown or black as if scorched
by fire. Summer pruning of infected
wood on pear trees is recommended.
Carried Soil Up Hill
To Save Swiss Farm
Ohio has quite a large group of
farmers whose Swiss ancestors
learned soil conservation in a hard
school whose final lesson was that
workers in the field should have a
knapsack which could be used to
carry back up the hill soil that had
washed down to the lower end of
Stark necessity dictated those
backbreaking methods because many
Swiss farms were steep slopes of
infertile soil. Poor as the soil was,
it had to be saved or half of the
Swiss population had to seek some
new way to make a living. The
struggle for existence was one of
the reasons why a large group of
Swiss left their homes and came to
Ohio then was just getting out of
the woods and had areas of level,
black soils, but those areas were not
chosen by the Swiss emigrants. Most
of those new citizens bought farms
in northeastern Ohio where the hills
formed a skyline that at least would
carry the eyes upward when the

customs of a strange land depressed
I the spirits.
To the Swiss, the Ohio farms ap
peared to have inexhaustibly rich
soil. The slopes were gentle to
eyes which were accustomed to al
most vertical walls of rock around
valley farms. Farming ought to be
an easy venture in Ohio.
Today, the third and fourth gener
ations of these Swiss people operate
the farms their ancestors bought.
They have found that soil moves
more slowly down Ohio slopes, but
that the movement is certain unless
some means are taken to defeat the
forces of erosion.
Gottleib Studer purchased a farm
near Wooster that quickly became
slashed with gullies under ordinary
tillage methods. Mr. Studer con
cluded that, if the farm was to be
saved, some drastic changes in farm
ing practices would have to be
adopted. The gullies were plowed in
until farm tools could be driven
To prevent further erosion, strip
cropping and terracing recommended
by the soils conservation service was
used. Mr. Studer did not stop with
the land used for field crops in
planning to work his farm on the
I contour. An orchard on the farm
is located on terraces which holds
the soil in place.
With the soil erosion stopped by
strip cropping and terraces, Mr.
Studer took another step in good
land use by improving his pasture
fields. Lime has been applied on all
the crop and pasture land, and 400
pounds to the acre of 20 per cent
superphosphate was applied on the
old pasture. Some of the steeper
slopes were added to the pasture
land after being seeded with a mix
ture of timothy, bluegrass, redtop,
and alsike clover.
Travelers over the Three-C high
way pass Mr. Studer’s farm, and it
is worth while to stop and compare
the appearance of the crops on this
place with those on similar land
where no erosion control is being
practiced. Mr. Studer expects his
soil will support as many genera
tions of farmers as will continue the
system of land use which he now

May Acquire Wealth
By Ignoring Riches
Choosing ideals which will permit
their owners to become useful mem
bers of -society rather than a des
perate striving for wealth, fame, or
power is recommended to Ohio high
school graduates by Dean John F.
unningham, College of Agriculture
a I’d Home Economics, Ohio State
Dean Cunningham quotes the
Oriental proverb, “He who has
money but no friends is not rich he
who has friends but no money is not
poor." The dean does not discourage
the ambitions of the graduates to
secure just rewards for their ser
vices but he believes their lives will
be richer if they realize early that
neither wealth, fame, nor power is
a guarantee of happiness.
Many of the graduates will con
tinue studies in colleges or univers
ities, but education alone will not
make a useful citizen. Whether or
not high school graduates continue
their education, Dean Cunningham
reminds them that a useful citizen
takes an interest in government, not
by seeking office but by being a
supporter of sane and sensible gov
In relations with other people, a
habit of always agreeing with their
actions and opinions often is costly
to all cncerned. A “yes man” loses
his self respect by agreement with
policies which he believes are wrong
and the other person may be en
couraged to continue a course which
will meet merited opposition later.
The chronic objector also is a
thorn in business and friendships.
The person who must disagree with
everything and everybody is as bad
ly twisted mentally as the one who
says “Yes” automatically. A proper
balance between the two habits will
make both social and business life
more pleasant and more profitable to
high school graduates and to their
The graduate’s acceptance of the
fact that everyone can not hold the
highest position nor pile up the
largest amount of wealth, should
not make him adopt an attitude of
defeat. Every worker can find sat
isfaction in his work if he can see
that it is a necessary part of a
system which brings greater rewards
to more people than any other na
tion has ever experienced.
The intangible things which are
called virtues must be considered by
those leaving high school for college
or for business. The finger tip of
circumstance points to those who
obey and those who disobey the
principles of morality. Morals are
simply a code of rules to permit the
close association of a group of
people with the fewest possible vio
lations of the rights and privileges
of each individual in the group.
Liars are not menaces to society
because their exaggerations reflect
undue importance upon themselves,
but because their lies impair confi
dence in the statements of all people.

There are 65,000 high school grad
uates in Ohio this year. Out of this
group about 15,000 will enter col
lege but, whether the graduate
leaves home for work or for further
education, the rules of society apply
equally. Flach individual must travel
on his own steam or be a burden
upon others. Every one of these
useless burdens is a handicap to the
progress of the human race.
