Nor is the war over for the hundreds of thousands of our battle cashaities who are still in hospitals, the war w,l never be over for some of these boys; those who are coming home crippled for .life.

Although killing properties of space sprays may be improved by aiding small amounts of DDT, the entomologists do not advise the use of DDT in a combination space and residual spray.

The par- adichlorobenzene hould then be applied in a smooth ring around the tree about'1% to2 inches wide !and 1 z inches from the trunk. The paradichlorobenz'ene should then be covered with several sho- velfus of dirt. The dirt should 'be mound'ed around the old trees should be removed at the end of four weeks and on older trees at the end of six weeks. Ethy|ene dichloride emulsion used carefully is safe on trees of all ages. It may also be applied later in the season than paradi- chlorobenzen'e. Before applying ethylene dichloride emulsion, it is necessary to fil any soil cracks around the tree to prevent the material from eaching the roots. The material is ap,plied hy pour- ing it on the soil around the bse of the tree and then covering with several shovelfuls of dirt. Care must be taken that none of the ethylene dichloride emulsion gets on the trunk of the tree." CAMP FIRE GIRLS PLAN HALLOWE'EN PARTY [ The Camp Fire Girls met at the Chas.
