Green Manure Is Aid to Bacteria Clover or Any Legume Crop Plowed Under Improves Soil Greatly. (Prepared by the United States Department of AKrleulture.) When a farmer plows under a green manure crop such as clover or any of the legumes he brings about almost unbelievuble changes in the world of living things under the soil, according to Nathan It. Smith, bacteriologist of the United States Department of Agri culture. Under favorable conditions plowing under a large amount of green ma terial may Increase the number of bac terla as much us ten times within two duys, says Mr. Smith. In four days there may be fifteen to twenty-five times the original number of bacteria in the decomposing material and ad-* liering soil. After about seven days the bacteria decrease in number al most as rapidly as they Increased. No change in the number of bacteria takes place in the soil one-half inch away from the decomposing material. Bacterial Decomposition. Bacterial decomposition of green ma nure gives rise to carbon dioxide and ammonia. The carbon dioxide escapes from the soil into the air; the am monia Is absorbed by the soil and, through the action of bacteria, is first changed to nitrite and then to nitrate. The greater the percentage of nitro gen in the green manure, other condi tions being equal, the more nitrate will be formed from its decomposition. When crops low in nitrogen, such as mature rye, are turned under very lit tle benefit will result for the follow ing crop, since the amount of nitrogen hound up by the bacteria in decompo sition inay he greater than that ob tained from the rye. Eventually this nitrogen is changed to nitrate, per haps too late for the crop. Influenced by Temperature. Decomposition of green manure Is greatly influenced by the temperature and moisture of the soil. Most soil bac teria require a temperature of 65 de grees to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, or often higher, for rapid activity. Under favorable conditions succulent green manure is usually decomposed in about seven days. It has been known for many years that growing a cover crop and plowing It under as a green mahure improves the physical character of the soil, in creases its capacity to hold water, and helps to prevent erosion. The mere growing of legumes, says Mr. Smith, has a stimulating effect upon the bac teria of the soil, and succeeding crops may be benefited even though the tops of the legumes are reroored. Maturity of Products Is Influenced by Seed The mnturity of garden products is directly Influenced by seed, tillage, temperature and soil conditions. Every one of these factors is placed within the hands of the farmer. lie may purchase only good sc£d from a re liable and reputable firm. Do not ex pect good seed nt a low price as much of the cheap seed sold in hulk is from cases that have been “taken up” by the seed houses In the fall anil held over and offered at a discount to dis pose of fIT Tillage not only influ ences maturity but also controls tem perature and moisture; two important factors in vegetable growing. Tillage means nil of the operations necessary In raising the crop; plowing, harrow ing and cultivation.

THE noBTH.I’AjWNTY DEMnnp *m Longer-Tongued Bees Need of Red Clover Careful Biometric Studies Made by R ussians> (reared by ifrggyu,, D ,p. rlmenl n °„ ions "tongue ala,aid a honey made care '“ studies of bees la areas »""'•« there lias been rela tively little ‘fterregiotml shipment of bees, nnd *'"rethe bees In any given, region are f» rly uniform in race and strain.

In the South the season lasts* longer and the honey flow is not so In- ' tense. The southern bee needs a long er tongue. From the standpoint of the red clover grower hi the United States it might he desirable, says W. J. Nolan, of the United States Department of Agriculture, to have bees with longer tongues in the red-clover regions. He explains that the corolla tubes of the red-clover blossom are too long for the sshorer-tonguedter-tongued honeybees who find it difficult or impossible to gather honey from them. This tends to re duce the visits of all but the longest tongued bees, and. consequently, many clover blossoms are not pollenlzed by visits of bees and do not hear seed. The races of bees most common in the United States are not exceptionally long tongued. Introduction of. long tongued bees in areas where cloven seed production is Important would probably result in larger seed crops and in a larger clover-honey supply. Health of Plants and Man Amply Protected The methods of controlling plant I diseases are probably as numerous ns I those used in fighting human ailments I and since they are both concerned I with the suppression of germs and or- 1 ganisms the means of dealing with I them are somewhat similar, according I to Dr. R. J. Haskell, who lias charge of the plant disease survey work in I the United States Department of Agri culture. Doctor Haskell says there'are four I main lines of attack in dealing with I plant diseases. The first method is to l keep them out of the country by means of quarantines and rigid inspection. | The second line of attack is by eradi cation, which may he successful if be gun before a disease bas spread over • wide area. Another method is pre vention of fmvetan by placing a bar rier between the “germ” nnd the host plant. This fs done by spraying with fungicides, destruction of insect car- i riers, nnd In numerous other ways. I The fourth method Is selection and I breeding for resistant varieties. J Sweet Clover Gaining Support in Illinois Nitrogen worth from 520.000.000 to Sfio.OOO.hdO is produced each year in s by the 750.< mm i acres of sweet clover. ’ according .to C. M.

Moslem Faith Kept by Tatars in Lithuania More than 500 years ago when Vytautas the Great was ruling over the. grand principality of Lithuania, then at the height of its power and l prosperity, he brought back as pris oners from one of ids campaigns in the southeast several hundred Ta tars. They remained in Lithuania intermarried with the native wom en, hut did not give up their Moslem faith and customs! United with the remnnnts of the Tatar troops lent by the grand khan to tlie Lithuanian grand duke, most of whom fell in the wars with ihe Teutonic knights, these faithful fol lowers of Mahomet planted the ban ner of the crescent In these northern legions; and'their descendants have kept-it flying right down to today. In connection with the solemn cele bration this year in all Lithuania of th(j 500th .’anniversary of the death of- Vy(aiitas the Great, the League -of Lithii'ulilan Tatars recently held a meeting iii Kovno (Kaunas) and decided to build a central mosque in the Ca)Sij,ul city. The Alaskan Flag Alaska has recently adopted an of ficial flag. It has a blue field, bor dered on three sides with a narrow band of gold. In the upper right-hand corner appears Polaris and below it the constellation Ursa Major, with its two “pointers” indicating the North- .star. The field of blue is held to symbolize the evening sky the .sea, mountain lakes and the wild flowers of Alaska; nnd the gold bor der, the wealth in Alaskan hills and streams. Polaris is the ever-constnnt guide of the explorer, woodsman, prospector and surveyor. And Alas kans hope that the northernmost star may some' day take its place ns the forty-ninth in our national emblem. For your daughter’s sake, use Red Cross Bnll Blue in laundry.
