New Watermelon Varieties Raised
DAVIS, Cali/., June 27—OP)—Con-
sider, for a moment, tiie problems
of a watermelon breeder.
Displayed recently were super-
tough-skinned watermelons dcvclp-
oped by Professors Glen N. Davis
and Arthur R. Spurr of the Uni-
versity of California college of
agriculture here. Final refinement
of the melon for release will take
a year or two more—and possibly
for these reasons, according to

new melons was that toughness of
skin is closely related to toughness
of flesh. Breeding a melon tailor-
made to certain specifications
takes time, crossing poor quality
melons of tough skins with tasty
and tender-skinned melons. An-
other factor complicated the prob-!
lem. The public prefers black j
seeds, seeming to think they in-1
dicate ripeness. So our ideal water- [
melon has to have black seeds, '

Constantly increasing costs of everything that goes into making up a daily news-
paper . . . labor . . . materials . . . maintenance and upkeep of machinery, etc.,
have made it imperative that we increase the price of delivering The Daily Tri-
bune to you, our customers and readers.
Not since February 1947 have we raised the home and mail delivery price of
our product, notwithstanding the fact that during that time, almost all the costs
of production have advanced steadily. Postal rates have increased more tnan
30%, and a bill is now in congress, which if passed, will further increase the
cost of getting our papers to our mail subscribers.
In announcing our new rates. The Daily Tribune is tardily following a pattern
already set by most publications in every field.
Our carrier delivery boys will receive a portion of the increase on home delivery,
and we feel sure that they will give you better service as a result. We don't want
to lose a single subscriber ... we need you . . . and we like to think you need
the many fine features The Daily Tribune will always give you and your family.

Birthplace of Justice
Holmes To Be Wrecked
BOSTON, June 27—ilfi—Historic
Boston is losing another landmark
— the birthplace of former Su-
preme Court Justice Oliver Wen-
On March 9, 1841, Holmes’ fa-
ther, the famed poet-essayist,
"Last evening there appeared at
No. 8 Montgomery Place a little
individual who may hereafter be
addressed as Holmes Esq., or The
Honorable Holmes, Member of
Congress: or His Excellency
Holmes, President, but who for the
present is content with scratching
his face and sucking his right fore-
The little individual grew up to
become the great jurist.
Today the building at 8 Bos-
worth street in downtown Boston,
formerly 8 Montgomery Place,
faces demolition to make way for
wider knowledge of the pro-
The purpose of the acreage re-
serve program is to cut back on
surpluses in wheat, corn, cotton
peanuts, rice and tobacco, by ad-
justing acreages below established
According to the information re-
ceived by county officials farm-
ers may participate in this pro-
gram by underplanting, loss
through natural destruction or by
plowing or cutting the crop be-
fore the deadline.
The wheat program for the soil
bank calls for the farmer to cer-
tify that the wheat was underplant-
ed due to adverse weather condi-
tions or that the wheat was lost
through natural causes.
If the farmer certifies that he
underplanted due to adverse
weather conditions the payment to
the farmer is $4 an acre while if
wheat destruction, due to natural
causes resulted, the payment is $6
an acre, according to the program.
Underplanting in the program
calls for a maximum of 50 acres
or 50 percent, whichever is larger.
The minimum for participation in
the program is 10 percent of five
acres. This means that if the
wheat allotment is less than 50
acres the entire allotment may be
placed in the acreage reserve pro-
There are thre ways that farm-
ers may meet requirements for
the cotton reserve program: un-
derplanting, destruction by natural
cause, or plant the full allotment
and plow up a portion of the allot-
If the farmer underplants he
will be paid at a rate of $.15 per
pound, times the normal yield for
the area. The same payment is
made if the full allotment is plant-
ed and part is plowed up or cut.
But, the payment for destruction
by natural cause is $6 an acre.
The maximum participation in
the cotton reserve program is 50
percent or 10 acres and the mini-
mum is 10 percent or two acres.
The same three methods are
available for participation in the
peanut reserve program but the
payments arc different than cot-
If the peanut acreage is UDdcr-
plantcd the payment is based on
$.03 per pound times the normal
yield, but if the acreage suffers
destruction by natural causes or
is plowed or cut the payment is
based on the appraised yield, or
the normal yield, whichever is
smaller, but the payment will not
be less than $6 per acre.
The maximum number of acres
that may be placed in the peanut
reserve program is 10 acres or 50
percent of the allotment and the
minimum is 10 percent or one

Picker Active at 84
PORTLAND, Tenn., June 27—<W
—Florence Hudson helped pick the
first commercial strawberry patch
in this area and she’s still at it—
74 years later.
Aunt Florence, as the spry
Negro woman is known, is 84 but
when strawberry season comes
around each year she’s right there
in the fields.
The most she ever picked in one
day was 42 gallons.
Aunt Florence is the only person
still living who helped pick the first
crop in this area. Her pay then '

Used on thousands of acres of cotton
land, dieldrin has proved to be one of
the most effective insecticides for con-
trol of boll weevils. So effective is
dieldrin’s killing power, that weevils
and other major cotton pests are fin-
ished for keeps if they touch, taste,
or breathe it.
Long lasting. A single application of
powerful dieldrin will knock out boll
weevils for many days after applica-
tion. Even hot, dry areas cannot dis-
courage dieldrin’s long-lasting
Easy to use. Dieldren can be ap-
plied as a spray or a dust. Either way,
you can be sure of effective, high kill.
Don’t put up with boll weevils and
other cotton pests this season—use
