THE EVEMN6 MISSOUBIAX, OOLF MBIA, MISSOURI, THUKSDAT, MAYJ7, 1980.
Dr. Haseman Says the Heavy
Rains and Vigorous Vege
tation Will Stop Scourge.
ARE MANY WORMS
Dry Spring Forces Pest to Go
rrom Field to Field, De
stroying All Plants.
The heavy rainfall and vigorous
vegetation and crops of Boone County
will probably save it from a scourge
of army worms like that which is rav
aging Stoddard County and other lo
calities in Southeast Missouri, in the
opinion of Dr. Leonard Haseman, state
The army worm only becomes mi
gratory when it becomes necessary to
move in order to get food. If there is
plenty of vegetation in the fields orig
inally Infested, the army worm will
stay there. If there is not, the mi
gration to other fields will begin.
This is the condition found in Stod
dard County now. The number of
worms is enormous and a dry spring
has forced them to move from field to
field, destroying every bit of plant
life in their path.
Each year a different locality suf
fers heavily from them. In 1913-14,
there was an outbreak in which Mis
souri and several adjacent states were
infested throughout. Boone County had
its share of the plague in those years.
The pastures of the animal husbandry
department of the' University, to the
southeast of Columbia, looked as if
they had been burned over.
Since that time, this section has had
no migrations. The worms are present
each year, but there is enough food to
keep them in the fields originally In
fested. If the next two or three
months are excessively dry, there is
a small possibility of Boone County
having a migration this year.
Doctor Haseman advises that farm
ers who find the army worm in their
fields take measures to exterminate
them. Had Stoddard County started to
work before the worm became a
scourge, a great deal of the damage
could have been prevented. The worms
when fully grown are about one and
one-half inches long. They are dark'
in color, smooth and have almost in
visible longitudinal stripes. They
closely resemble the cutworm, but are
more active. They eat almost any kind
of vegetation, especially wheat, corn,
and other cereals, alfalfa, legumes and
The best way to exterminate them is
by poison bait made as follows: 50
pounds of bran and 2 pounds of white
arsenic or Paris green mixed dry. Put
about 2 or 4 quarts of cheap molasses
in from 5 to 7 gallons of water. Stir
until the molasses is dissolved. Then,
add the juice and chopped up peel of
from 3 to C oranges or lemons to the
water and molasses. Pour this over
the dry mixture of bran and arsenic
Work into a stiff mash, using more
water if necessary. Care should be
taken not to make it sloppy or soggy.'
It should be of such consistency that,
when sown broadcast over the fields,
the flakes of brah will not stick to
gether, but will fall separately. If it
is lumpy and sticks together, there is
danger of cattle and poultry getting
enough of the arsenic to kill them. If
properly mixed, there is no danger to
stock in having them in poisoned pas
tures. This was determined by experi
ments here several years ago.
The bran mash should be sown in
the same way as oats. The best time
is in the late afternoon, as the worms
do most of their feeding then.
If the worms have 'already started
to migrate to other fields, the poisoned
mash should be sown in strips in their

Missouri's strongest competitors
will be the Kansas Aggies and Ames,
both of whose teams are strong in
certain; erents. Coach Simpson be
lieves, however, that if the points of
the other schools are well divided,
Missouri will have a good chance to
win. It is impossible to ngure out
the final outcome of the conference
by the results of any of the dual
meets earlier In the season, because
several schools are sending only a
few men who are sure to make points
and upset the dope.
The following men will make the
trip: Barlow, Parker, Albus, "Roney,

Williams, Maxwell, Scholz. Hamilton,

Kansas las one of the best teams In
the conference but like the Missouri
team it has been unfortunate in los-
"nR games by one score. The two
teams broke even in the'.r series at

Missouri in ten innings 4 to 3 and

G. F. PERRY, Adjutant O. R. JOHNSON, Commander
H. M. Cottrell Tells of the
Spirit of Cordiality at
Visit to College of Agricul
ture Instructive Because
of Its Adaptability.
Judging from an article which ap
peared in the Arkansas Gazette, Lit
tle Rock, Ark., the delegation of
farmers, bankers', and business
men from Arkansas who visited Co
lumbia a short time ago on an agri
cultural Inspection tour were well
pleased with their trip.
The paper quotes H. M. Cottrell,
one of the delegation as saying;
"Ihave never met such a spirit of
cordiality as we encountered on this
trip. Everywhere wei went we were
received with open arms and the peo
ple acted as If we couldn't do enough
"The climax was the banquet ten
dered the members of the party at
Columbia, Mo., Saturday night by the
business men of the town and the fa
culty of the Missouri College of Ag
riculture. No party of men ever re
ceived a more cordial welcome."
&fr. Cottrell goes on to say that
the visit to the College of Agricul
ture here was especially Instructive
because practically all the work that
is being carried on is adaptable to
Arkansas. He says this Is not true
of the Iowa College of Agriculture
"Especially interesting to us was
the fact that the Missouri college
started with almost nothing and it
has never had large appropriations.
But it has had highly efficient men
in charge of its affairs and is now
recognized as one of the greatest ag
ricultural colleges in the country."
