FROM OUR EXCHANGES BEER LICENSES MEETING WITH MUCH OPPOSITION C. L. Wood, Baltimore county sani tation officer, has announced that ap plications for the renewal of beer and liquor licenses in Prince Georges County are being rejected at a ratio of about 1 to 12 because of the fail ure of applicants to conform to sani tation laws.

Keller last Friday on an inspection of a number of strawberry fields in different sec , tions of Somerset county. It was found that the strawberry weevil or clipper was present in large j numbers in some of the fields and ■ j considerable injury was being done by the insect in cutting the blossom stems. A count of the injuries in some of the fields showed as high as , 30 per cent to 50 per cent loss of blos_ poms on some plants. The recent few warm days were suitable for the weevil to become very ; active and indications are that there will be a severe loss from this insect this spring. Strawberry growers have been 'j warned to be ready to control the j weevil and it is important that the strawberry plants be dusted at once. Dr. E. N.

Applications can be made with hand or power dusters, at the rate of 20 to 30 pounds to the acre. The dust should he applied when the first buds begin to push out of the crown, and should be followed with a second application just before the first buds begin to open. Practically all the injury is done before the blossoms bloom, and it is not desirable to dust the plants when ( the blossoms open, or small green fmit develops. Prompt dusting will be necessary if a heavy loss is to be avoided in some of the strawberry fields. It pays to hem dusters, as one will not then be obliged to go over her work and pick off threads. AN F. B. I. MAN GETS CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTOR i' The F. B. I. representative visited ' Kent county and accompanied John J O’Patta, of Rock Hall, to Baltimore for a hearing. Mr. O’Patta declined , to register for service and claimed to be a conscientious objector. He says he served in the first World War, but since that time has been convert , ed and does not believe in War. He is about 40 years of age. His wife is a Rock Hall lady, formerly Miss Collyer. It is said that O’Patta told officers that he had never voted for a presi dent of the United States, a congress man, a senator, or a governor, and therefore no laws which they passed could compel him to register for war services. However, it was pointed out that there is a provision in the Back The United States Savings Bond Campaign S Pocomoke City Pharmacy 1 registration blank for those who wish to escape military service on the grounds of “conscientious objection,” and O’Patta could have filled this provision out and kept within the law. i He will go before the U.
