BY ADOFFIOIIS WARD, DEFUNIAK SPININGS uestions Answers BY PIKE AND LINDER My okra is beginning to rot before the bloom falls off and never devlops a pod. What can l do to stop this? This situation is called blos- som blight. It is a fungus dis- ease for which no effective con- trol has been found. Blossom blight is usually worse during periods of high humidity, in rank growing plants where blooms are shaded and might be worse where high rates of nitrogen have been applied. What are the recommenda- tions for controlling lesser cornstalk borers in. peanuts? Check fields closelytodeter- mine damage the insects are causing. These insects are worse in dry weather, their da- mage will not be as severe when good growing and produc- tion moisture is available. To control, apply Z !ha. technical (100% material) of Parathion granules in an 18 inch band over the row and pegging zone or spray with I pound techni- cal Azodrin over the row and pegging zone. Azodrin is not cleared for more than two (2) applications per year on pea- nuts. SAVE ON MEN'S SUITS BEACH PARTY! NARDIS! BoBBlE BROOKS!

The second Imtch-out of wee- vils is occurring with square puncture counts ranging from I0 to 90 percent depending on con- trol efforts, Square punctures average 15 to Z5 percent. Most cotton producers in South Ala- bama are doing a good job of weevil controk Bollworm are causing more problems than boll weevils. Bollworm moth flights increased 5 to 10 fold over the past 15 days. This means that producers must keep an eye on the worm situation. How can l control hagworms on my shrubs and trees? Bagworms attack various evergreen and decldlous shrubs and trees. Arborvitae, cedar and Arizona cypress are very succeptible. Actually, the best control method is to hand-pick and burn the wormbags in the winter or early spring. After eggs hatch ia the spring, spray with one of .the following in- secticides: Toxaphene 60% E.C. - I tablespoon per gallon of water; or Dimethoate 23.4 % (Cygon, Defent) Z teaspoons; or Malathion 57% E.C., 5 tea- spoons; or Lead Arsenate 95% wettable powder, 6 tablespoons per gallon of water. It is hard to kill the insects, especially while they are in the bags. Will spider mites attackpea- nuts? Yes, spider mites will attack peanuts, especially in fields where insecticides such as toxaphene has been used earlier for thrip or coffeeweed control. By using an insecticide you kill the beneficial insects that nor- mally control spider mites, worms and other insects. Mites do not attack peanuts very often but watch field for leaves that turn pail yellow and/or die. Mites are very small insect- related pest (8 legs) that suck sap from the underside of pea- nut leaves. Azndrin is the recommended insecticide for mite control - - - but make i sure you have a problem be- fore applying any insecticide. THE FLORALA NEWS - THURSDAY, Social Securi News Over 3 1/2 million disabled workers and their families are getting monthly payments as the social security disability pro- gram begins its 17th year this month, according to Vernon A. Kilpatrick, social security manager in Andalusia "Only disabled workers bet- ween 50 and 65 were eligible when the first social security disability benefits were paid in July 1957," Kilpatrick said. "Today, workers of any age under 65 as well as dependent members of their fannlies can have the protection of disability insurance," he said, "Since July of last year, Medicare health insurance has been avail- able to disabled people if they've been entitled to social security disability payments 24 or more consecutive months~" An insured worker becomes eligible for payments if he suf- fers a severe disability ex- pected to keep him from work- ing a year or longer. Pay- ment begins for the 6th full month of dxsability, Generally, a worker who be- comes disabled in 1974 must have worked 5-3/4yearsinem- ployment covered by social se- curity to be insured. Five years of the work must have been during the 10-year period State Agency decide whether the worker is disabled under the social security law. "In most cases," Kilpatrick said, "The Alabama State Agency can decide on the basis of medical evidence from the applicant's physician. If more evidence is needed, additional medical tests may be required at the Government's expense" In selected cases, social se- curity helps pay for vocational rehabilitation services, which can include job training and physical therapy Social security disability benefits are paid to over 2 million disabled workers and over 1 I/2 million dependents The average payment is $205 a month. About 1.8 million peolJle get- ting social security disability payments have Medicare cov- erage, according to Kilpatrick.

There are ability experts in the Alabama many who have had the sad experience of having to endure such a terrible ordeal in their church. They trouble in a church can spread like fire in on a windy day. One would surely ask the questions; "AJ supposed to be able to get along with one different cults, sects, religions, etc., be able to get along and work together rest7" Yes, they should; and, furthermore, trouble that is created in churches is not christian's action but the result of actions or backslidden church members. Now, no church has a foolproof systexn t~ unconverted and backslidden people, In lac, type of equipment available to analyze the person's heart (spiritually speaking). The way that a church can operate is to extend the ship to everyone who applies and hcrpe yoU d( There have always been unconverted people never been born again) in the churches, a always will be until the Great Reaper the tares from the wheat. Read Matthew The Lord was aware that unconverted membership in the local churches. That's ~hY scripture about wolves in sheep's clothing. 7:15. You see, the sheep represent the Christians. The wolves represent the converted church members. The wolve~s take 0 appearance of sheep and intermingle ~ith the matter how cunning, nice, and appealing the} they are still wolves at heart. Yea get the is that sheep's clothing doesn't make a neither does church membership make a Let's look at the characteristics of a easygoing, and in constant need of a shephe~ the lamb typlifles Christ so well; he is The wolf, however, is another story.
