School meals have provided warm and nourishing meals to millions of boys and girls throughout the nation. For many of these children the warm breakfast or warm lunch is the only hot meal they will be able to have during the day. In 1967, on a nationwide basis, about 3 million needy children were served with hot school lunches on a nationwide basis. But by this past school year the number of boys and girls served had increased to more than 8 million. In addition, another million school age youngsters from needy families received hot breakfasts. There are 1322 Alabama schools taking part in the lunch and breakfast program. In fact, only one Alabama school does not take part in the program. During the recently completed school year, from September, 1971, until June 2, 1972, these Alabama schools served almost I00 million meals--averaging 600,000 each and every school day. Of these, more than 38 million were provided free and another three and a half million were at reduced prices. Alabama school authoriUes tell me that the school meal program in our state will grow between six and ten percent during the coming school year. This means that up to ten mil- lion more meals will be served between September and June. The United States spends hun- dreds of millions of dollars each year to provide food for hungry people throughout the world, and that is very fine and I do not object to that. But I feel that we have a duty to make certain that our own child- ren, in Alabama and in other States, have ample meals so that each child will be pro- perly nourished and will not go hungry when he is in school. A hungry child is in no position to try to learn. Just one year ago I presided over hearings of the Subcom- mittee during which we pro- posed a bill to provide emer- gency funding to keepthe school meal program going. This bill was aonroved by the Senate in almost record time. It is my hope that Congress will take speedy action on these new pro- posals so that they might be- come effective when school starts this fall. jl /!, ~ , / BY CLAUDE W. PIKE AND ROBERT E. LINDER - EXTENSION Film GENTI~ How can I control pecan wee- vils in my orchard? Check for the presence of this insect by August 15 or before. To check for weevils spread a sheet under a tree and shake limbs vigorously and collect weevils that fail from the tree. The following weevils have been a problem. Make three (3) applications of Toxaphene, Epn or Guthion at 10 days intervals, beginning about the 15th of An- gust or earlier. These recom- mendations are given in the 1972 pecan spray schedule. How can I control worms in my squash? More than likely the worms that eat into squash is the pickle- worm. This worm affects cu- cumbers, squash and related plants. Tocontrol pickleworms, spray or dust plants with Se- ven at the rate of one pound of technical material per acre. This material should be ap- plied at weekly intervals throughout the growing season. Other insecticides can be used to control this worm but they would not be as safe as Seven. 1972 COVINGTON ELECTRIC CO-OP / ANNUAL MEETING Thursday P.M., AUGUST 3 | J You're cordially invited to the 1972 MEMBERSHIP MEETING, COVINGTON ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC.

First, let me say applying the insecticide at the proper time is "most important" for peach borer control. Because the adult borers come out of the tree trunk during June, July and Au- gust. They lay eggs on thetrunk and lower limbs. The eggs hatch. The small be,era work their way into the tree, tunnels under the bark until the next summer then come out as adults and the cycle starts once more. The borers attack the trunk of trees from several inches above ground to 2. or 3 inches above ground to 2 to 3 inches below the ground. Home owners should follow a spray schedule for other insects and also for borer control. For borers apply 3 applications to the trunk and lower limbs using one of the followin: (1) Thiodan (5 tablesppons of 50% wettable powder per l gallon of water); or (2) Dieldrin (3 tablespoons of 1.5 pound per gallon of emulsifiable concen- trate per gallon of water). The first application should be made about July 10 and two other applications at 3 to 4 week intervals. The insecticide mix- ture can be applied to the trunk and lower limbs with a lower pressure sprayer or with a paint brush. CAUTION. Do not get the insecticide on your hands. If peaches or plums are still on the tree(s), care should be taken not to get the spray on the fruit. I I SOIL CONSER VA TION NEWS Throughout the country citi- zens are called on to consider what the Soil and Water Con- servation Districts program means to their individual wel- fare and to the prosperity and security of the Nation. Soil and Water Conservation Dis- tricts have been organized in every state in the Nation for the purpose of preserving our pro- ductive soil and vital water sup- plies. Never before in history has there been such a great and conserted movement in this di- rection. No person observing our land during the past decade could have failed to notice wonderful improvements. He would have noted the trend toward a planned program of conserva- tion instead of careless and wasteful abuse of our land her- itage. He sees trees, andgrass growing abundantly where once there was only a gully washed hillside. He sees carefullyter- raced fields cultivated with saving of soil and water in mind. He would learn that farmers have begun to plant crops on their land which are most apt to hold the soil in place and keep water in abundance for plant growth. He would see many ponds and lakes that have been built to save valuable water and to control floods. And a little thought would tell him that land covered with vegetation is the kind of land which takes up water to make the most abun- dant reservoir. He would know that not only farmers but city people and in- dustry require untold quantities of water. And most of all he would begin to appreciate what farmers banded together in Soil and Water Conservation Dis- tricts are doing for him and fu- ture generations. MINUTE SPORTS QUIZ 1.
