We have a disease known as Downy Mildew that is very com- mon in many of our soybean fields at the present time. The disease in the early stages can be identified by indefinite yellowish-green areas on the top of the leaves. As the dis- ease gets worse, diseased areas become dark brown and are surrounded by yellowish-green margins. A gray fungus growth develops on the lower side of these diseased areas. There is nothing that can be alone and chances are it will not affect the yields very much if any. Resistant varieties are being developed. Are foliage feeding insects doing much damage to soybeans at the present time? We have not observed very much foliage feeding to date on soybeans. We saw more Mexican Bean Beetles than any other insects in the fields last AUGUST 22- AUGUST 26 week. Some adult white fringed beetles and stink bugs were observed. May we suggest that producers check fields at least twice per week for in- sects. Very often insects will do lots of damage before the producer realizes he has a problem then it takes time to apply insecticides. Play it safe and keep an eye on all crops. What can I do to control Southern Blight(White Mold)in my peanuts? There is no material or prac- tice known that will control this disease at the stage of growth that our peanut crop is in now. This disease will be increased by dead leaves that drop from the plants due to leafspot, there- fore, it would be beneficial to control leafspot. Other prac- tices that will help to control Southern Blight are: (1) Rotate peanuts (2) Turn peanut land early in the year and bury surface trash several inches deep. (3) Soil test and lime if necessary to correct soil pH (4) Plant peanuts flat (5) Use chemical week control. (6) Set plows flat when cultivating pea- nuts to avoid throwing soil on the plants. How long should I continue my peanut leafspot contol program? Continue spraying or dusting peanuts for leafspot every 14 days until 2 weeks before digging time. The last ap- plication of materials quite likely will be the most profit- able one due to a build up of. infestation. $1S.O0 ELAINE L.

REAL- ESTATE FOR SALE ZORN ROTH ERS STRAIGHT ABOUT OMOLENE vs. OATS of you have asked me how raolene compares to straight Let's take a step-by- at Omolene and oats and then their relative value.

That's because Omolene contains 2~% more Net Energy than oats, when you compare them pound for pound. FEEDINGS PER BAG If you use a coffee can or a scoop to measure feed, your feed cost depends , on how many times you can fill a feed box with a 50-pound bag. One 50-pound bag of Omolene fills a feed box almost one-and-a-half times as often as a 50-pound bag of horse oats. That's because Purina Omolene has 42% more feed by volume. OMOLENE=BARGAIN Whether .you buy Omolene for its guaranteed analysis, its high quality ingredients, or because it gives your horse more net energy and more feed- ings per bag, you'll see why Omolene is America's biggest bargain in horse nu- trition. You'll see a difference in your horse. You'll see a difference in your feed bill. And you'll see why dependable Purina Omolene goes into over 300,000 feed boxes every day.

I then went to see the priest at the church where these sales- people got my name and address. He "stated they were not church sponsored and personally wrote a letter for me asking for my money to be refunded. They an- swered my letter and cancelled the Bible order but would not return one cent of my money. I was forced by extreme coer- sign to make the purchase, and now that I couldn't get my mone3 back had to do without medi- cine which resulted in my being hospitalized. Please help me get my money back as I need it to buy medicine. I neverdid want the Bible in the first place and told these arm-twisting super salesmen that I didn't. However, a sick old man who lives alone cannot protect himself against the people who simply would not take no for an answer." This despicable act is an ex- ample of methods used by high pressure super-salesmen who prey on the elderly, poor and handicapped people who are so Jefenseless agamst such tac- tics. Had this man known ot the three day "cooling off" clause contained in the newly enacted mini-code, he could have cancelled his contract and received a refund on his down- payment. Because of frequent high pressure sales techniques ann often shoddy and over-priced merchandise, the law gives con- sumers a right to cancel a home solicitation sale until midnight of the third business day fol- lowing his execution of the pur- chase agreement. The method of cancellation can be by "de- livery" or when deposited in the mail properly addressed to the seller, postage prepaid. No- tice of the buyer's right to can- el must be conspicuously set out on the sales contract. A home solicitation sale does not include a sale, wherever consummated, if it is financed through a pre-existing open-end credit plan, or a closed-end plan providing for a series of sales; nor does it include a sale made at the buyer's residence after prior negotiations between the parties at the seller's place of business. We hope that you will be able to avoid consumer problems but you should have no hesitancy in complaining when you have a justifiable basis for a complaint. To file a complaint, simply write a letter stating all of the pertinent information. Be sure to enclose copies of any docu- ments pertaining to the transac- tion.
