pest, has invaded this city and surrounding areas to the extent that a cali-to-arms. has been sounded to all home owners who want to salvage their lawns, gardens and shrubbery before the tiny but dynamic invader emerges victorious in the fight now being waged between man and the bug. The beetle horde is the largest of 15 years and if proper treatment of the land by the home owners is not put into effect, this city is going to suffer the same fate as the residents of Long Island are facing today. The beetles are so great in number down there that they are found on almost every store counter and rapidly gaining so strong a majority in numbers that many of the folk down there are wondering if they aren't going to have. to move out instead of tho pest, if things keep up the way they are.

L. Fletcher Prouty, city forester, made clear the fact that beetle traps are not the solution in conquering the "little devastator." They help in trapping quite but the real treatment to "rough up" the destroy. ers, is to spread arsenate of lead over every foot of ground, which is one of the best means used today in combatting the beetle. Another' way the KO punch can he administered by the land owners is to spray DDT over lawns and bushes. One acre of ground requires about 500 pounds of arsenate of lead to be effective.

Small house lots can use about 50 pounds of the poison as a maximum in fighting the pest. Larger lots can be effectively protected by using 100 pounds. The seriousness of the situation is not to be minimized as the beetle, after being successful in absorbing the grass and bushes, moves on to "greener pastures," namely vegetable gardens, flower gardens and grapevines.

Denison in Probate Court today gave 22-years-old Virginia Melvina (Cannella) Patnode a. divorce from Wilfred Jed Patnode, who resides in the Hotel Barnes, and who is 50 years old, on. grounds of cruelty, and dismissed the divorce libel sought by the husband for Mrs. Patnode cruelthey were married Oct.

limited her to $1 a day from which she nad to buy bread and milk as well as any luxuries. The husband alleged that his wife failed to keep her home as clean as he thought it should be, and objected to her keeping company with men of her own age. A third witness who was to testify was ill and could not appear in court, so counsel went to the home of the witness and agreed on the testimony which this witness would give if in court, and reported this agreement to Judge Denison who granted the wife's libel and dismissed the husband's. Philip E. Caporale is counsel for the wife, and Henry Patnaude is counsel for the husband.

WAA Provided Hose and Pumps To Farmers After Some Batting While due credit must be given to the WAA for helping out local farmers in present emergency, just to make the record straight, certain statementa released today by the agency are not quite accurate. In a release emanating from the Boston headquarters of the agency, the WAA laid claim to "Immediate response" to the demand made upon them for hose and pumps in combatting the severe county drouth by means of irrigation. The officials state they had at once set machinery into motion which made possible the release of 16,500 feet of OCD fire hose to the cities of Springfield, West Springfield and Westfield and that, through this action the cities were enabled to aid the stricken farmers. Actually, the real. story behind! the present flow of supplies now in the hands of the farmers in this area is slightly different.

The whole thing began last week, when conditions began to get so severe that County Paul Browne was called upon to secure aid in the form of irrigation equipment order to save the crops. Got Run. Around Browne made four calls to the WAA, seeking pumps and hose. He got the run around and ended up right where he started, with nothing. The Evening Union learned plight Monday, and of the trouble he had had trying to convince WAA needed equipment and needed it badly, in order to avert serious losses to farmers.

the newspaper stepped into the picture. A. call was made to the agency and several underlings were given story, without any details being spared. One official contacted promised to do his utmost to help out. Later in the day a call was received which assured Browne of some arrangement to give him what he needed.

The Evening Union went to bed thinking all was rosy. The following morning, 1t was learned from Browne that he had had pumps offered to him, with certain red tupe attached, and some hose. The price set on the hose was however exorbitant. He declined the offer and went out on his own to see what he could get out of the local towns. Director Cuts Red 'cape The Evening Union once more stepped in.

A call was made directly to the regional director of the WAA. After a bit of bandying about on telephone connections, the call was finally Pute through. When director was apprised of Veterans Need Not Pay for Prescriptions Veterans being treated by Veterans' Administration doctors on State Street here may have prescriptions filled by a local druggist without charge to themselves, it was announced today. The veteran must be under treatment for a service-connected disability, it was stressed; if any medicine is needed, the VA doctor prescribes what it is, and vet takes the prescription to Raleigh's Drug Store, on the of State and Maple Streets, for preparation. Raleigh's is the only VA drug store agency in this city.

Bill for the medicine no given the veteran an is sent this pharmacy to the Boston ton office, of the VA ued to July 25 Emery Barnes, 43, of 1216 Parker Street, Indian Orchard, a carpenter, pleaded not guilty before Special Judge Ralph 'S. Spooner in District Court today to three separate warrants charging him with incest. Bail of $3000 on each warrant, for a total of $9000, which was set by. court officials yesterday when Barnes was arrested downtown by Crime Prevention Bureau officers, was ordered to stand by the court and trial of the case continued to July 25. Barnes appeared without counsel.

Barnes was unable to furnish high. bail and was committed to the House of Correction in default. awaiting the above trial date. The trial date is the same date to which the cases of Barnes' 17 and 18-years-old daughters, both of whom are principals in two of the warrants charging incestuous relations, were continued yesterday. The daughters were charged with being stubborn children, on the complaint of the mother, and denied the charges in District Court yesterday.

The intimacies with his three daughters, with which Barnes 1s charged date back as far as 1942, with the lact charges resulting from his with: A third daughter in March of 1015. PRE FAB HOUSE PERMIT HELD UP Robertson Wishes to Study Plans Further The permit granted recently to H. A. Povley for the construction of a prefabricated house at 153 Groveland Street was suspended by Building Commissioner Gordon Robertson today pending further atudy.

Mayr Reflects on Colorful Period With Military Intelligence When' Samuel L'. Mayr of 191 Street was drafted into the armed forces in December, 1943, he never dreamed at that time that his war travels would be so diversified and interesting. Trained As Engineer Because of his knowledge of the German language, was assigned as instructor in the post Army orientation program at Ft. Devens, a 'position he held for 14 weeks. Then followed his transfer to the engineer training.

center at. Ft. Belvoir, Va. where, after completing his training, he was again assigned to the orientation program which he held until his shipment overseas. Sailing for England as a member of the.

In January, 1945, he was sent to Paris to take part in intelligence examinations for four weeks. Once chosen as a member of Military Intelligence, he was assigned to a service team and at this point he embarked on a new and interesting phase of his military life. The MI team was composed of seven men, all of which rank a terrific amount of authority as Mayr was to find out later. At this point the purpose of the team was to enter a newly-captured city or town and, as quickly as possible, inaugurate restoration administration.

Later he was transferred to the Counter Intelligence Corps and attached to the Infantry Division for duty. He took part in the crossing of the Rhine. River and recalls that one hour after the river crossing, about 1000 German prisoners were Workers Urged To Appreciate Smoking Rights Union Photo plastics field held at the Kimball for the next four days by the Monsanto Chemical PLASTICS EXHIBIT section of the exhibition showing the latest discoveries and inventions in the Company, Plastics Division, of Springfield.
