When people approach you with a promise of big profits, just remember that it's better to obtain a, reasonable, rate of interest and have your principal remain secure than to take a chance at an impossible profit and lose your investment.

Schnebelt's Bakery Army Worms Show Up In Michigan Again Reported Damaging Crows in Sag' inaw Bay District—M. A. C. Field Man Investigating Army worms are working on Michigan crops again this year, according to reports received by the Michigan Agricultural collefe from counties in the Saginay Bay district of the state. Outbreaks in Alcona county (near Harrisville) and in Sanilac county are said to be resulting in extensive' damage. The worms, which are capable of cleaning up whole crops when they appear in numbers, have been, reported from Sanilac, Tuscola, and Huron counties for the last two years, and are being watched closely by specialists at the college. R. M. Hain, held man of the M. A. G. entomology department, is working in the infected district this w'eek, making an investigation ,of the recent outbreaks. "One hopeful sign about this year's outbreaks," say£ Miss Eugenia McDaniel, of«the college entomology de- partmeht, "is the faCjt that all the. army worms sent have been parasitised with a fly which is expected to aid in the control of the pest. "Treatment in the control of these worms should be applied at the time they first appear. There are two broods, one about the 4th of July and the other late in August, and it is at these times that control measures should be taken. It is probably too late now for control-.treatment, in places . where action has not already been taken, for tbe worms are going in to the pupa stage." The following information on control of army worms is given by Prof. H. R. Pettit, head of the entomology department at M. A. C. 13ven though it is too late to. dOi much tliis season, it is important that farmers of the state have, a knowledge of the proper qontrol methods, in order that they may ^ct at the right time if the worms' put in an appearance .next summer. Reports of army worm outbreaks often reach Ihe college too late for information to be sent-into the district in time to be effective. "Two methods are in common use in restricting the progress of army worms. One depends on a barrier to keep the worms, from 'spreading into new aeries and the other actually kills the worms- The barriers used consist of, two or three, deep "furrows, plowed around the area infested, and spac.ed S or 10 feet apart. Tiirn the furrows towand the advancing \ worms, in order that when the worms tumble in the furrows they will have to climb up the smooth, land side in order to" get out, then when these furrows fill up turn them under, thereby, leaving fresh furrows for the worms to fill. Now worms work at night and. during lowery weather and therefore, it will be necessary to keep watch of things all night for the few, days that elapse before these .worms get full size and descend into the ground. .."Poison baits are most successful when the worms are sctttered and also, they may be used in addition to the, ditching. The following formula is one that has be.en very successful in the past and . which is easily filled." Sift together 1 pound of paris- green or 3-4 pound of white arsenic (not' arsenate of lead) and 20 pounds of bran; add half gallon of molasses or syrup- and a little water, and-s'ir in three oranges or lemons, ground fine- in food-chopper, skins and a 11- This may be -broad-casted over from 2 to 5 acres of land. It is -very attractive^ to both cut-worms and grasshoppers. ^Do not try to substitute any other poison for the par- is-green or white arsenic. Neither arsenate of lead or calcium will do the work unless very large quantities are used. Neither should one use this -bait where poultry are likely to pick up much of it, although the bait should be distributed in a finely broken up condition rather than in lumps?'

That wheat growers of the state must be careful to plant at a "fly free" date, in order to avoid loss from Hessian fly, is -the statement of Prof. J..F. Cox," head of the M. A. C. farm orops department. These safe planting datesv vary greatly for different parts of the state, local conditions governing the time. "Hessian fly has caused great dam age in Michigan wheat growing sections," says Prof. Cox, "particularly in the southern part of the state. For this reason it is highly advisable for wheat growers to plant at a fly-free date, late enough to Insure protection from the fly; and early enough to give time for sufficient top growth in the fall to carry through the winter. / "In Ingham county, LAKE-ARMBRrSTER At 5:30 Wednesday afterrioon, September 1, occurred the marriage of Miss Lucille Armbruster ,to Donald Lake of Detroit at the home' of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs., Aaron Armbruster, last Michigan avenue. The ceremony was performed by Rev. C. H. Wittbracht in the presence of near relatives of the bride and groom.v. Miss.Estella^Armhruster acted as bridesmaid and John Schumacher as best man.

Testimony meeting Wednesday at S:00 p. m. A cordial invitation is extended to all. Sunday school 11 a. m., to which pupils under 20 years may be admitted. The college is" keeping close watch on the fly conditions and can furnish ,dates for individual counties, based on fly situation. In general, wheat should be planted In the lower -two tiers of Michigan counties between September 20 and 28; in the two central tiers September IS to 25; in horth-central Michigan, September 10 to 15; ' and in northern Michigan August 25 to September 5. . It is difficult to generalize accurately, since the planting date is a local question. "Where the fly is very bad, planting in the latter part of these periods is advisable. It must be kept in mind, however, that if wheat is planted too -late in Michigan a decrease in the possible* yield can surely be expected, but It is equally important to . control the ily before greater damage results." iMdividual. farmers are urged to inquire of their county agent or -farm bureau manager in regard to their local planting dates, or to write io the Michigan Agricultural eollege, East Lansing.
