Paul Carpenter, Polk county agent,
has issued a statement to apple folks
in which he says:
"We are not able to get away
from the August worm spray this
year. The worm situation is bad due
to the fact that eggs were laid all
during the month of June. It would
be poor business to, bring fruit to
this season and then abandon our
worm control at a most critical point.
"About August 20th apply arsenate
of lead, three pounds of the powdered
to 100 gallons of water.
"To avoid blotchiness of fruit and
to seal the poison coat so. it "wont
come off" the use of a aualitv
spreader is urged. A high grade
commercial spreader will run about i
two bits to a 200-gallon tank.
"Anthracnose. This disease can
be brought under complete control by
a late usmmer application of Bor
deaux, 4-4-50. If a property is ser
iously affected by anthracnose it
will be well to combine the Bordeaux
with the August lead spray.
"Bordeaux in August likely means
wiping the fruit.
"It is just possible that the Augu ,
lead application will call for the sarr.
treatment, but not probable where
spreader is used.
"In a few orchards the Bordeaux
for anthracnose was put on with tt
July spray. This early use of Bor
deaux may control the disease and
still avoid wiping.
"The last one. Don't pass it up."

side of the river -will be the first
one to start hop picking this year.
Pearl Cooper, who is handling th9

be started Monday; Henry Ruch will
begin on Tuesday and Virgil De Cos

Ruch has about 30 acres and Mr. De

fuggles or early hops. This will be
about a week or 10 days in advance
of the customary time for harvesting.
The Wigrich has considerable
acreage in early hops and Walter
Acocks has about 15 acres. It will
probably be 10 days or two weeks
before either starts picking.
