O.T BEETLES ARE SCARCE IN MICHIGAN FIELDS , ' Bean Growers Are Assured That No t | Serious Damage is to Be i Expected. . Michigan hean growers will he re- ' assured by the reports recently made by the United States Department of •= Agriculture which shows that the ' Mexican bean beetle has made ho ap- j preciable progress in Michigan during " the first year of its presence. | Thorough scouting by the federal I department and hy entomologists ;-.t ' Michigan State college has resulted ; in the finding of the beetle in only | two new areas in the state. Last | year the insect was found in three localities. 1 Only a few of the insects were 1 found this year in the area where ' they were located and no commercial | damage had been done by those ; found. j In view of the small numbers of : the insect present in the state, the ' college entomologist repeats his [ statement of last year that producers ! of beans in Michigan need not worry ' about the bean beetle for the next few years. The federal report shows that the beetle is spreading slowly in a few of the northern states but it does not seem to develop rapidly enough in numbers to be a serious menace in this section.

OFFER USE OF BOC-SS FOR WINTER READING State College Library Selects Material for Rural Readers. In making plans for- passing the long evenings of the winter season, farmers and their families should not neglect the opportunity of obtaining reading matter offered for loan by the Michigan State college library. The material offered to the farmer and his family contains discussions on both agricultural and home economics subjects. This material is set apart in the so-called package loan library and may be obtained on request. A list of subjects will be sent tc any one interested who will request the list from the Reference Librarian M. S. C, East Lansing. Patrons will be asked to pay only the mailing' cost, and any of the subject matter can be held for four weeks. The offer is limited to residents of Michigan. Local leaders of home economic; extension groups will find much oL this material serviceable in their work, it is said. Farmers clubs anc other rural organizations Will find it valuable for use in studies of rura problems. The material is in pamphlet form and the mailing costs wil" be small. A survey conducted by the Unitee States Department of Agricutun. shows that rural people are not behind city dwellers in the amount of. reading done, but that the farmers do most of their reading during the winter.
