fruit pests. , He" says 'that the apple
crop east of the Rocky mountains to
Ohio, Is almost a total failure, but the
crop In northern Klchlsran. and New
York is normal. He- also says that

bring a good price and have a percep

Mr. Geer w ishes the fruitgrowers In
his district to understand that the, re
strictions upon the sale of lnfecte.1
fruit will be rigidly enforced, and h!s
Inspectors have instructions to confis

promptly destroyed. This will apply
as well to fruit found ir. the hands or
