Dear Mr. Van Trump: I thought
perhaps this letter of Professor
Waite'a, which I am. enclosing,
would be of interest to you. I
agree with Professor Waite that
probably the dry weather of last
season, accompanied perhaps by
other conditions affecting the
nutrition of the trees, was re
sponsible for the trouble,, as we
were not able to secure any evi
dence that any sort of parsitlc
fungus was present. Sincerely

Prof. Bares: I regret that I have
I neglected answering your letter
of May 12, , about the dropping
of winter buds of Italian prunes.
I About' the time your letter came
we received a set of Italian prune
specimens from Oregon sent in by
Mr, Kniman. These specimens
did not show the eummiog fun
gus or any parasitic organisms
and were pretty dry and stale
when received so that we could
not learn anything definite from
the specimens themselves. They
gave, negative, results on miero
soopie examination and we there
fore had to fall back -on chemical,
nutritional or climatic conditiins
to account, for the trouble-
wing exactly what these
