PHONE UM EXPERIMENT STATION GIVES DRY ROT DATA Editor Glacier : Some time ego there appeared in your columns a letter ask ing for information concerning some of the orchard problems of the valley. To adequately answer all of the ques tions we fear that much valuable space in the newspaper would be employed, perhaps to the impairment of the issue. However, a number of the questions asked are of much interest to many growers in the valley and we are glad to present such information on the sub ject as is available. It is regrettable that all of the facts which bring about dry rot and core rot of apples are not known. These dis eases are classified ; as physiological troubles, there being no definite fungus or insect organisms associated with them. Troubles of this sort are irreg ular in occurrence and must be traced back to some unbalanced condition, either in soil moisture, plant food or perhaps something irregular within the tree itself, probably induced by some of Itbe conditions already mentioned. Usually in extreme cases we find tree injury associated with these two troubles in the form of Dieback or so called Rosette. A well known Aus tralian author on this subject has pre' pared five volumes and has spent many years investigating the cause, but in his conclusions he is unable to place his finger upon the set of conditions which bring about this trouble. under our conditions at least, we can positively state that thorough orchard practices, such as careful cul tivation and rotation with cover crops, supplemented with uniform irrigation. has in many instances corrected large acreage severely affected by this con dition. However, there are many ex ceptions, and the trouble often contin ues to develop regularly despite the fact that growers have been very care lul with these practices. Ihis prob ably leads us to a point below the sur face of the ground, and it is quite probable if we could picture a cross section of this soil condition, that is. the ground throughout the year with reference to its dryness or its exces give water condition, we would be sur prised. Many observations that we have made lead us to believe that during some parts of the year, and perhaps for only a short time, water has be come over-abundant, resulting in some mechanical injury to the feeding roots or the trees. We have made some oo servations here at Hood River, with reference to the water table in some orchards, and have found this very high even on ground which would have the appearance of good drainage. It was probably due to this fact that dry rot and core rot developed, causing so much damage in these orchards. Jn one particular case as the water table lowered, the dry rot diminished pro gressively until not present at all. It would seem then, that growers should more critically understand their soil moisture and particularly the rise and fall of their water table if they are ex periencing much trouble of this sort. An examination should be made at def inite intervals throughout the year, as it would take regular observations, say not to exceed every three or four weeks to accurately determine this water condition because of fluctuations that occur during the season. We be lieve that drainage employed along with the practices suggested would materially reduce this trouble. In next week's issue, we will discuss water core.

L. Peck, professor of landscape gardening and floricul ture, at O..A. C. ;. "Many persons encourage the growth of moss by cutting the grass too often or too short, and by watering the lawn too oiten or too late in the season," says Professor Peck. "Grass and all plants take their en ergy from the sun through their leaves or foliage. If the leaves of a rose bush were constantly being plucked the bnsh would not thrive. Yet that is exactly what happens to the grata plant every time tne lawn is cut. The plant is devitalized to sucji an extent by too frequent cutting and too short Mrs. Laura M. Hoyt Recommends Cliamberlalu's Tablets "I have frequently used Chamber lain's Tablets, during the past three years, and have found them splendid for headache and bilious attacks. 1 am only too pleased, at any time, to speak a word in praise of them, writes Mrs. Laura M. Hoyt, Rock port, N. Y. iielore you buy an automobile you elieuld see the new Studebaker at the ! Cameron Motor Co. m4tf cutting that it is unable to compete with its hardy rival tne moss.' Moss thrives on a damp surface, hence the lawn should not be watered too late in the season, warns this ane cialist. The ground must have an op portunity to become dry occasionally. Shaded lawns are more subject to the moss evil than lawns in a favorable location The condition of the ground may also encourage moss growth, but this can be remedied by spreading air-slacked lime or fine wood ashes over the lawn, either in the fall or in the spring, - If the lawn is already covered with moss it should be thoroughly raked early in the spring. This is the only treatment now used. Where conditions are favorable for the growth of moss steps should be taken to prevent its growth. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and often saves time, money, and labor, according to Professor Peck. urass .seea can do sown either in the fall or in the spring. It is often desirable to plant one crop in the fall ana follow this with another crop in the spring, fall sowfbg should take place early or immediately after the nrst rain sets in. fepring sowing should be done just as soon as the frost is out of the ground, or about the middle of April, ibis gives the younz grass a chance to establish itself before the severe summer heat comes on. Pro fessor Peck favors spring sowing be cause germination is more rapid at that time and, in general, the results are more satisfactory. Beautiful lawn making is an art which should not be attempted unless the beginner has tome knowledge of grass seed. There are many kinds of seed, each adapted to Its own environ ment, and when taken elsewhere. yielding a doubtful result, or no result at all. Kentucky blue grass is excellent for lawns. It grows slowly but vigorously aimoat everywhere Dut on an acid soil Red top shows results more auicklv than blue grass and will thrive on a sandy soil. This makes a fine combin ation with blue grass. English rve grass grows quickly and shows almost immediate results. This also makes an excellent combination with blue crass for some sections .of the country, but its use is discouraged in Oregon be cause it grows . in benches which are hard to cut with a lawn mower. The cultivation of English rye grass for lawns has not met with success in this state, due to climatic conditions. Various-leaved fescue is good for shady and moist places. Rhode Island bent is good for-putting greens because it has a creeping habit 'and arrows In shady places. Creeping bent can be used to bind banks or Bloping places. It also has a crenping habit and irrows in sandy soil. Crested dog's-tail forms a low and compact sward, and is good for slopes and shady places. Wood meadow grass is very hardv and thrives best in the shade. Red fescue is excellent for poor soils and gravelly banks. White clover is not recommended for a lawn. Sheep fes cue is good tor light, dry sous "if the grans is adapted to the local lty, and is given proper care, it will crowd out most of the moss and pre vent iurtner moss iormation. sava rroiessor recK Help Our Own Poor If you have any old clothes that AWl have wear in them or food of any kind (fresh or canned) that you can spare, please notify G.
