SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
The Veteran class of the Sunday
7school of the Methodist Episcopal
-church held its annual meeting at
the hospitable home of Mrs. J. B. Lee
on New Year's day. Notwithstand
ing the continuous rain and biting
cold a goodly number of these youth
ful veterans braved the weather to
attend this meeting and enjoyed the
day together. However, on account of
the severe weather and illness of
some of the members the attendance
was incomplete. Those absent were
greatly missed. The following mem
bers were present: Mesdames Lee,
Russel, Gallop, Shoemaker, Scoggins
and Mr. Radeke. Besides Mr. and

Mirth and good cheer pervaded the
Smeeting. It was most inspiring to see
how these youngsters in their 60s, 70s
and 80s retain their appreciation of
pleasantry and wholesome fun. Not
a dull nor a sad moment was mani
fest throughout the day. Each one
of those elect members contributed
to the feast and just at the right time
a most sumptuous dinner was served.

the NOW IS THE TIME TO SPRAY
urt FOR SAN JOSE SCALE
aid Baton Rouge, Jan. 9.-The San
Jose scale is the most widespread and
destructive pest that Louisiana fruit
growers have to contend with, yet,
this insect is not hard to control, ac- e
cording to B. Szymonisk, fruit andf
nut specialist, Extension Division,s
Louisiana State University .
"Pully 98 per cent of fruit trees a
are infested with the scale," he says, c;
"and it is so destructive that in neg
lected orchards it kills the trees In
two to three seasons. This insect not d
only InJares the trees by sucking the w
jfuices but also Injects a poison in the -
region where it feeds.
"The San Jose scale can be con
trolled by spraying the fruit trees
during the winter with lime-salfur
solution. Where the grower is pre
pared to make the solution at home,
he will find it much cheaper, other
wise he should resort to the usea of
commercial lime-sulfur. Spraying
can be done any time during the dor
mant season but the work will be
much more effective if it is done in
the fall within a month after the
trees shed their leaves, or Jaust be.
fore the buds begin*to swell in the
spring. It is best to select a warm,
sunny calm day for spraying. Use a
good spray outfit and drench the
trees thorousghly. The San Jose
scale is killed by the spray solution
coming in direct contact with the in
sect, so each insect that is not touch
ed with the lime-sulful solution es
capes and next year infest the fruit
trees, where the orchard has never
been sprayed it is best to give two
dormant sprays--one in the fall and
one in the spring.
"Growers are warned against fake
spray solutions. They should con
sult their parish demonstration agent
or write to Extension Division, Lou
isiana State iUniversity."
