Dear Dr. Rolfs:

Uur journey to Brazil for the purpose of
putting into operation our Fellowship plans there has been
postponed to 1932. Then, however, we plan to go ahead
rapidly. I'm sorry about the delay, but we cannot do it
before 1932.

With kindest regards to you, I am

V We are enclosing eleven photographs, 4#f which"-P .
will interest Dr. Blake very much. Quite detailed legends
are written out on the back of the photographs, w1 will
not repeat in the body of the letter. 4-'

By laying out Photographs 5, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9,
Dr. Blake will see at once that it is dealing with four or
five different species, n all lumped off under the
name of brasiliensis.#iWe have now had fruits from the seed-
lings of E.S.A.V. Tree iQ 1. Our best specimen is represented
by Photograph N2 10.

Photograph N9 11 shows our seedling N2 104, budded
istaKen from the mother Tree N 1. Ten buds were inserted
of them took. At the present time, the buds have grown
Z-' until some of them are more than a meter long. This of course
is. the crucial test from a horticultural point of view. It is
not a matter of serious importance, horticulturally speaking,
whether this bears the name of Carpotroche brasiliensis or Car-
potroche something else. From a chemist's standpoint of course d-
it is of utmost importance that the tree from which h-e anal es
the seed is correctly identified. Horticulturally we have tot-
ten away .from that difficulty a- indicated above b numb ring
the trees with which we are working. $Our tree NX lV N-'
Photograph NQ 10), is likely to become the progenitor of a lot
of nursery sdsock. It.is precocious and a heavy fruiter. Whether
it will retain the good quality of Tree ho 1, in producing seed
of a high chemical value, is still to be determined. All of the
budded trees, including N2 104, (represented by Photograph N9 11
.l of course t-tt this character.

We have growing on the 6scola grounds some 500 seedlings
from Tree N6 2.

It just occurred to me that it might make an interest-
ing note for the American Mediaal Association, if you wrote up
a.little story about the Sapucainha. You have had some samples
of the commercial oil, some oil privately extracted and also
several kilos of the seed from Tree NQ 1. This chemical research
would give you a nice basit and by using several of the photo-
raphs it would make a rather attractive short atue. S-
I am hoping to get off some mze seed to you in th
course of a few days.

With kindest personal remembrances from oth, I am,

ESTADO DE MIMAS GERAE5 March 28, 1931.
5EDE VI" OSA.,

Dr. G. S. Jamieson,
Fats and Oils Laboratory,
Department of Agriculture,
Washington, D. C.
My dear Dr. Jamieson:

n. By this time you will think that I have completely
V forgotten about promises of more Sapucainha seed. However,
Si------- Cnt-ons over whic- L there was no particular control made
it somewhat difficult to get the material to you. I am still
hoping to secure some seeds. In the mean time, I want you to
see some of the work that we have been doing at the Escola on
the Sapucainha culture.
I am very sorry indeed that it has been quite impos-
sible for me to make a botanical reconnaissance of the Sapucain-
ha flora. So far as I know, there is no one available here who
could be entrusted with such a technical proposition as this
S/ would involve. All that we have been able to do in the line of
gathering specimens, and very few have been gathered, has had
to be done quite incidentally. As I see the proposLtion, very
little worth-the-wile work can be done unl s e by
i a systematist who It5 vaat his dispaer dwo~Ygfa i,
Sand at the same time, abundant eeans to move place ffAa place as
f the collecting would indicate. It is rather too bad tha7 such-o
a pretty problem, intrinsically so valuable, should have to go
begging for a"few pennies".

The old classification and the old keys are quite
defective It will be necessary to establish some other char-
o'isebythe ancient botanists. Under the pres-
ent financial depression it is quite difficult to see any
relief from either te Brasilian oi Mineiran sources.

Maybe an incident that has occurred during the last
year may give an idea of some of the difficulties surrounding
the securing of specimens of Uarpotroche. (Mrs.) Ynez Mexia,
a field botanist, has made her headquarters at the Lscola for.
over a year. She is making a general botanical collection af--
this region and has collected a total of about fifteen hundred
numbers in the State of Mines. When she began the work, I asked
her to be especially vigilant for specmens f Carpotroche. In
all her collecting I think she securedI'w' --ecas other that
our Tree NQ 1. And the specimens she got from these trees were
not what one would call extra good botanical specimens. Yet
there exists in iinas, at the present time, more species of
Carpotroche than are credited to all of rasil.

Dear Miss Rolfs:-

Your letter of February 25th has been re-
ceived regarding a balance of $23.82 which you state we
have to your credit.

We hare made a very careful check of our
files and we regret that we cannot locate any record of
this amount due you. We received two orders from you,
one on August 3rd in which you enclosed check to the
amount of $26867 and a second order on August 12th in
which you enclosed check to the amount of $28.20. Both
orders were duly executed and sent by local express in
one P. Box and 1 Box on August 15th to Dr. P.H.Bolfs, Rio
% Vandergrift, at Mpire Forwarding Co. 264 West llth, St.,
New York City, in accordance with your instructions.

There were several items listed that we
could not supply which are as follows:-

1 pk. White Tartar Oats 1 pk. Storm King Oats
1 Early Newmarket Oats 1 Swedish Select Oats

Due to this fact our records shows that there was a balance
in your favor of $3.72. Probably there is other information
that we are not aware of due to the fact that we cannot lo-
cate any records. If you will be kin& enough to advise us
full details, we will be glad to give the matter further
attention.

A copy of our catalog has been sent to
you under separate cover.

We have carefully noted the results you
have experienced with the bulbs purchased from us. The
failure of Jonquils and Narcissus no doubt, is caused by
climatic conditions. This no doubt, is also the cause of
the remarkable results experienced with Gladiolus and
Tuberoses and Dahlias.

Dear Sir:-

I received today yo',;r letter addressed to my

father Dr*. P. H. Rolfs. Dr. Rolfs is at present in Brazil,

South Anmerioa and I regret that we 'have no cepy of his book

available.,

Probably the quickest way for you to obtain a

copy of his book will be to write the publishers, The

^ Fla. t,:Ite ICiaiogical Surve/y,
Thl.ahassze, Fla.,
IV den"r Harper;

'i.!-re are a. couple of letters from you, if not more, p.w.iting
a oonvoenient time for a ,s.-,l (since co,-Lin to t*,.il, the word "c-nvenieat"
has taken on a different meaning from what it fti ii:rly Ud.) Thank you
very much for the c1-;,ji ):-.!.'hioh yo u hAve oent in the last several let-
ter3. As you were among those who were sent a Chrisatmas c; r.i in the form
of a pri.n,.-L' letter you will Jkow how we ctuie thru the ravolu/tko,..

'-3v.-.i v.oekls after -1. L t quieted. Covwn ay rLfLLtuA.tr, MrS.
;I., ,ra.'v^ sent, us several rolls of Gainesville Suns- Vse were very inter-
ested in seeing that the ('. e;*.,.he ).-i.. In tha paper were
really m'nii..rabl/ more accurde th-a wis the information te r.coived
at Viya ... Of course ,i..i, inside ,he x-'volut.ion zones Wy movement ad-
vantageous to the o .,ioa':.ieo was either colored or deleted, I.o:-r.ver, I
a~s ay t~int r s
s, may h~t I as roeesbly surprised to .ee hou accurate t1he daily
RAIILL ;tin~i wore.

Two or three weeks uo, ,,.'s I sent -ou by reg'..tored, nail,
a statistical ic-lLti rd. report j. the St& e of i ,',i,.ai .:o. If it
has cofi' to your htA sB it will L-i'.LjubitoJly hlv.o bom quite interir-.stAdg
a.nd <,, 'i;c informatkive.

Speakin-, of hard Liwi.s, it is just now .,tvii Dv''sl with a
vengeance. Of course the first impact was that of the coffee debacle.
This resulted in a skrink.r.: af 'v,.lABn" some wht similar to that which
occurred in Florida afforthe boom. During, tife years when the State of
Pfo Paulo was buy.-.;,; a.ll surplus coffee, tahe plh.nters lived in .,eat
luxury, bu..inri aut ioOil(;s, baildii,,, houses ," investing"in trivp' to
*aro in I withoutt \,orryn.,, uch adout y,.- y ol, offtheir t.,:-i,. After
the slump, the old typc. coffee plmt nations were worth less than not'hif.i,
As a matter of fact, in one of the coffee centers, coffee trees .ere
cut down for fire iood. I i hn, there was just Qio-,-a .i of this to
make a "L., i.:'.. .-r stery. Because the ;, ral nirun of J.'.-OiM
wouldn't cut dow a fruit tree even if it is dead. ie 7-iimly has an
inacte -).sjudice : ,'i.,t destroy;'.mj any cultivated 0].'-,.

There has boon no census j. 3rasil uince the one that vas taken
in 19.2. ?'.. foreror Fedoral ';ov. l.injt was too 1;u, k,.irin itself in
power to b... r wi:t"i auch a minor affair as a '.'.'i..rML census. The new
government, is. o:0treaoly bLvsy I.ryini: to get "I.h.in,-:s &ligad for the fu-
tuno welfare of the country.








-2-

-e hare just prepared a small bulletin on the Sapuoa inha (Carp.roc.he
.). This 'belongs to the Falcourtiaceas and contains a large amount of
chalAmoograI oil, You will probablyy roember that this oil has been found
.-o be a very fine specific for leprosy. ihndrod', if not thousands of
oaLionts have already been cured by its use, B3rasil has boat a dozen
species which givr a positive reaction for this oil. The genus Carpotro-
ohe is credited with more species giving a positive reaction thmi all
the other gen-ra. of the feaily. The work was begun in 195 and we cilmi-
na te thiu yoz-r by juacaeding in having a hundred or more.buds to take.
The se:us is described as polygamo-dMoecious. More than fifty per cent
of the 11u,-.y1 that we W'eccultir.atting wre stmainate. Of the polyga-
ious flovrezil plrts, only a small per cent are fruitful. In one copes
visited by one of our studeat3 who is hol -in, in the work, he found nearly
two thouannd s cimcris or trees but could fine only. one with fruit and it
'L.i only five frits, tho it wvas 1. iue anuughL to carry anywhere from five
hujLirRd to a thouqunul. Probably during en excessively frui'*J.l yoir it
would produce soie htudrods of fruits.

Mrq Ernest Hofer,
eIbourne, UwRaa
D ar Sir:

Your letter of Feb. l1th was received on archh 13Li.

ThIr-re ia ie many iujindred-. of thousands of acres of sood live stock
lend praceticilly unoccupied in Brrs.1. Some of it can be -onht for
a very small amount of money but that also was true of the forest at lands
in Florida about thirty ye-.rs -ago,. I as offered several :.oi..rid creek e
of the finest Southern pine at 75 an acre. I did not buy it because I
did not have the money. 'h-t more or less deni-ribo n thie situation ,s
it is in 1' .Lil at the present time.

As to th,'- chances of e-iployment, you would find it vera difficult,
if indeed not i,.i;..rl to0 find a remunerative _.rce. There are tL'ous-
ands of poople out of, 4 lJ-TyInt both in the State of Sio Paulo and in
the 2t to of "tr: who knov the !.: -0;,i md the customs of the people.

The .,.Titr,- ..-t r.to on v ,.-.y at thV present titme is very iuch greater
thai it is in the Uni -i'L States. 12 'f on State of government bonds, is
not an unusual rate. The rtte Epo-'cified in the boAd of course is only
ebcut 8 or 9 while the discount at whieh the boonds haIv to be sold,
brinj,- the -r.to up to 12 or more.

This oives you the sitiuttion as it ft,;:..l at th.- present time. Of
course this -aill not coutinuR Indefinately. Sooner or later there will
be a considnrrable change for bettiring economic conditions. You can
guess just as well as I can when that conlitton vill arise. No one
knows.

Thire are great o 'or unfies in the more ,-v,':i.ced states in Bra-
sil, for iziking a home and a comfortable livin5. There are mnay Swiss
people here who in :;.ito of the "hard times" p are (tble to make some
hei'dway. And of course when getter timed come .g.i./n they will Lmass
coniisidor'-blco fortunes. The m in difficulty with "iio.s C.raes, nd I
usaouri it is the svine case with mnm y other Stntes, is tiat there are so
few people who know how to farm. There is a ;r. 't mass of day laborers,
but very few or almost none who are able to guide this labor in produc-
tive rgrit-lturo. In the 't.af+.o of Minns there are rjiy well educated
men who direct the affairs of the Yovernryont intelligently and vrigor-
ously, .There are also a largr number of vhnt me might call capitalists.
Doth of these classes if they should give their time and attention to
economic ariculItra, would iaorr. thi.u .i aply the gre:t defid enoy that
now occurs in the State of TTinas. Iloiever, if t113hy did that, the
vicious, and unmoral would take over the reins o0. *ov-;rnr",it and the
rains of capital. 1'his would leave the state in a most deplorable
condition. '







-2-

I hope the foreguoig pe.gae has given you a aocwhat elearer view
of the exmat conditions as they exit. If you were hore, anQd un.Jar-
itood the lngutpge, Potrtiugu:eq as wtll as the custom's o: the people,
you vould undoubtedly be able to uake a plr.ce for yourself and your
co.pnLion.1 whoU the aconZoiAI. conditions begin to I,.priva. If you come
to 3rasil at the present tl, yoia should oOme ..ith ssurficient money
to enable you to look over the ooutnlry and then dociJe where wo'ild be
the iDt lo,.t ion ',itablo luids way be bought alimo 3t anywhere in
th,. s.uth.rn part of Bras1I at a price very much lower than you "'i 'ild
have to pay in Iowa. .hi y b&nkera and financiers have been obliged to
tale over ioJ'l.ln : morf;a;EbJ to theB, *,ii'rl they '..:..ld be -lad to part
with these hololin .-, oeven at a f laeial los,.

The cliwtte of souther 'n 'inJ.'k is of course very f muh war-rkr 1 'ta.
tha. of Iowa. As a ,i ctter of fact tI ork,_,o. grows as far south a ia-
to Argent i.nri. In the southern most states of BLrasl, siiof.rll is ex-
peoted every year. In Iinfis Ge.-rue, I think such a thin, has never occurred.
ho in the 'id'.ir altitumin: frosts are ox.., .ted a-.v,5r winter.

Your letters of Jnn. 241ii tund I'b. i/t.L Re still imu'.s:arod.
7.y friend rof. Track, who was old enough to be niy.grandfather, u.;ed to
say to s,"'.:i, lot the letters lie, they will answer themselves, if you
do not bother them." That is almost the case with .oinr letters. They
have been practic7-l ly answered by the "grapevine telephone". After all,
the grapevine telephone fuictioiL5 much more epp.-litiously and with greider
certahinty than does the regular telopho,-j.

WV'j have been here at Lelio lirizonte since the night of the
14th, mostly poaJe.- iii ourselves in ,ittiedAe :ii waiting. Fortune.tely
we brought eiouig'i work material .igLg; so thut either ond or both could
be at work whenever the "spirit moved".

I was very ,lui -co receive the circular from 0. Pares e Cia.,

how much *.tron.-r (?) it would have been ifhe hud quoted H. Harold flum,
da ,.- r ...j I -l. -3 de Liorida. .

Wish you could have been here at DBelio Horizonte and r.led
around with us ov r this country. I think we would hfve ._.6ei! a much
better birds eye view of the country than you did tallin-, fish stories
which had to be -*aec,.od up on, or loolin. around thxu the jewelry stores

'r.. ..:.made a start fcrtao hIinoterlidtA, .,L as far as

to Vigosa for them to be ntt..chod to the sheets.

i'oo btlad Clarissa did not take "'rs. Cox to the '.'-*.'.r smith sO
that Ehe could yee tLhem 'eDat out the copper bowl. Of course she can tell
the whole story but you know lice the fish story: everybody cau'i toll if
it is rely so or not ? .'y the phyc'i-lo;ic-a. effect on the one that is
telling the story. I might suis;;, that a *.. out of the difficulty would
be to lot some of the servfnta use the b.- ivl to c jik in for .hile, and
then ahe can ior'Fn it os0 easily enough for a pre-iic., relic.

death of Mrs. Taylor or not but she passed away on
December 1, 1930. I wish to thank you for the floviers
sent by you thru Mr. and Mrs. Hargraves.

Miss Clarissia Rolfe,
Vioosa,
Mine Gaereas,
Brazil.

Dear Friends Miss Rolfe and Daddy:-

Just like I ger.erally do I have been tLhinkin' of you folks, and
threatening to write you, and just keep putting it off. One thin
that pcompts me I consider it a duty if nothin-f else to acknowledge the
nice stamps you sent me a long time ago. I knew the issue was out,
but had none of them so they were quite an addition.
I have hesitated about writing iurin the uprising, but as that
has been over some time i feel certain .rbere is no longer delay in
tne mails, P'roi what little I learned of the conditions there I am
!lad that it is nob worse for you folks than iG is, of course I had no
particulars, anyway I assume you are both still living_ which is consi-
derable.
Have not seen Effie for a long time.
Things here are just creeping along as usual. A little improvement
now and then, but it comes so slow there is no appreciation in it.
Things in the Museum however, are quite different than when you ware
last here. Have just recently finished installing a lot of new oases.
Will be flai to hear from you anytime as I always appreciate a
line Prot friends so far away.
i do not know whether you are in touch with Dr. Ernest 'G3. Holt
or not, but he is down there with the National Jeographical Society
on a survey along the Brazilian border, but which border I have for-
Botten. I owe him a letter also.
With kindest reards to both of you, and the usual greetinjs of
the season, I am,
Very sincerely, yours,

TVH/MK .

Box 495, Tallahassee, Fla.,

March 22, 1931.


Dr. P. H, Rolfs,

Vigosa, Minas" eraes, Brazil,

Dear Prof. Rolfs:-

A few days ago I received from you a nice new

and bulky statistical bulletin on Pernambuco, for which I Qwnk

you. Of course I haven't had much time to study it yet, but I

guess I can get about the same sort of information out of it that

I did from one for Minas Geraes that you sent me a few years ago.

I find in it some annual statistics of weather, crops, births,

deaths, etc., since 1920, but no indication of any census of popu-

lation since 1920. Vtas a census taken in Brazil last year, and if

not, are there any plans for a new census soon?

I have lately published a short study of the population of

Cuba (which was written several years ago), in the Pan-American

Magazine (which you may see), and I have read proof of one on

exico for the same magazine, which ought to be out in a week or

so. I have just gotten some census reports from the Bahamas,

which I am working on intermittently, and President Hoovers trip

to Porto Rico this month has stimulated me to look into conditions

.n that crowded island, which I can easily do by means of U.S.

census reports. I am also working on a longer article on Mexico,

for which I have some preliminary 1930 census figures. So you see

I am getting to be quite an explorer of tropical counties from a

distance, just as an astronomer explores the moon with a telescope.

Not only that, but I am also dabbling in tropical botany

these days. Since I wrote to ou in December I have gotten from










Paul GC. Standley of the Field Museum two bulky Aristic monographs,

one on Yuoatan and one on a small valley in Honduras, which I can

make good use of. The one on Yucatan interested me because that

peninsula is similar in geology and climate to some of the country

south of IMiami, and there are a good many plants there common to

Florida; more than Small ever credited to Mexico in his Florida

books. Standley says he has never been in Yucatan; but you would

never guess that by reading his work, for the notes on common names

and economic properties (taken largely from Gaumer and Millspaugh)

are very full; and instead of making more mistakes in compiling, he

seems to have corrected a good many of the mistakes of his prede-

sessors.

If I have time enough I may write two articles based on Stand-

leys Yucatan flora; one a semi-popular one on the useful plants of

Yucatan, and the other a dry fkoristic comparison between Florida

and Yucatan. I don't get so much out of his Honduras study, for

that is pretty far away, but it did throw some interesting light on

a problem I discussed in the February Torreya. It came just a few

days too late to be mentioned in that, but I have written a supple-

mentary note for the next issue, and have already read proof of that.

When that comes out I will send you a reprint of the two com-

bined, together With the article on Cuba, the one on Mexico if it is

ready, and anything else that mpy come along in the meanwhile. I

don't remember whether I told you that I published 17 papers last

year; but even if I did, I could now add that I got out six more in

the first two months of this year. Most of these last were in news-

papers, but I consider them scientific contributions, and may have

them reprinted some of these days.










Since I wrote you in December I have done no traveling or

botanizing to speak of, for the weather has been rather cool and

disagreeable most of the time; though we have escaped severe freezes,

and I don't know that the temperature has been below 30 here at any

time during the winter. Spring is opening up nicely now, though,

and I guess I will soon be on the road some. I am looking for Dr.

Small here in a few days, on his way to i-ew Urleand again to get

some more Irises, and I suppose I could go with him, but I ought to

stay here and look for some more travelers who are coming by a little

later, one of whom is E. J. Palmer of the Arnold Arboretum, on a
Orataegus expedition.

It must have be-en since I last wrote to you that I got a cir-

cular from the Torrey Botanical Club, soliciting funds to help pub-

lish an account of the discoveries of G..H*J. Tate on Mt. Duida,

Venezuela, which it seems had never been climbed before. Nearly all

the plants on top of the mountain were undescribed, and he got a

couple of new species of the supposedly monotypic x ftaia eliamphora

(pitcher-plant), and several new genera. In Science the other day

there was an account by Standley of the death of a botanist I hadn't

heard of before, Ekman, who had been exploring the West Indies and
discovered a lot of new genera on islands that were thought to have

been pretty thoruugh1 explored. So perhaps if you hustle around a
little you can find some new genera in Brazil yet.

I forgot to say above that I found an editorial in an Ohio
paper about a month ago, entitled"The worlds best claimers". It
says the Brazilian statisticians claim that country to have over
40 million people now, and they expect 50 000,000 in 1910,76,000,000
in 1950, and 240,000,000 in 1990. I don t like to part with that,
but I may make you a typewritten copy and send it to you next time.
In the meanwhile I will enclose a fw other cli iLup this way
ow are you getting along, ana when are you m
agaln? Sincerely yours,

Dr. P. H. Rolfs, March 20, 1930.
Consultor Technico de Agric.,
do Estado de Minas Geraes, ', ..)
Escola Superior de Agricultura,
Vicosa, M.G. Brasil.

My dear Dr. Rols:

I was glad to get your latter of Feby. 3, and to learn
of the splendid prospects for the opening of your new School.
Certainly one must not despise the day of small beginnings.
How well I recall the I.S.C of 1893 in comparison with the wonder-
ful institution there today, and yet it was 25 years old when
I entered. Witness the rapid growth of the Texas Technological
ollege,out at Lubbock, in West Texas, during these few years!
e more progressive countries of South America must be fertile
soil for large advances in agriculture.

I had noted the adverse influence of the coffee situation
on Brazilian prosperity but had not kbown just what effect this
would have on neighboring countries because I have not kept up
with S.A. commercial inter-relationships. How closely the
whole world is bound up in these matters. And how much more
effective commercial rivalries will be in future than in the past.
In this country we have seen newly developed sections well-nigh
ruin older sections by their greater ability to producetcheaply.
And so between nations. Changing conditions also change habits
regarding food and clothing, and upset prosperity most unexpect-
edly for some groups.

Nothing has opened yet for me, but developments naturally
will be slow. In the meantime I am writing a bit. I learn kUm
thereby, it is good discipline, and it may pay. It surely
will in future years. In the meantime, should you learn of
opening I will be glad to be kept in touch.

Congress still is one mad scramble of tariff, investigat-
ions, accusations, and all the other making's of ammunition for
the political campaign of the coming sutnmer and fall. But
the country survives.

With warm personal regards, and best wishes,

Vet cerely, _



(Carleton R. Ball).

simplesmente por carecer de conhecimnetos da lingua ingleza, e n9o powder, por-
tanjo, entrar plenainente na vida academic e nas actIvidades dos es'tudantes,
actividades estas quo forman parte muito important da vida universitaria norte-
americana. Taes difficuldades nao somente affeotam o estado de animo da pessoa
senao tambem tendem a diminuir os beneficios das bolsas de estud6s que a meudo
se conferem a estudantes latino-americanos. Corn o fim de evitar ate onde f6r
possivel tao desagradaveis experiencias, ideou-se o piano destas pessoas pres-
tarem exame nos seus ,respectivos paizes, antes de tomar os passes definitivos pa-
ra entrar em uma universidade dos Estados Unidos.
Este annoy o plano a que nos referimos, ensaiado em 1930 com-notavel exito.
em varias capitaes europeas, foi ampliado consideravelriente a fir'de servir aos
universitarios ou futuros universitarios de 30 paizcs differences, Figuram nes-
ta list a'maioria das Republicas Latino-Americanas, sendo que istp se conseg(iiu
em resultado das actividades da Seccgo de Cooperaqao Intellectual da Uniap Pan-
SAmericana e da boa voriade da Junta encarregada dos examnens de entrada as univer-
sidades dos Estadosfbuo3^ege Entrance Ecamninations Board). Devido a exiguidade
de tempo, este anno/ no tern sido possivel nomear examinadores para todas as capi-
taes da Hispano-America, mas no anno proximo espera-se extender tal privilegio
a todas ellas.
No mez de abril, os estudattes dos pontos mai.s apartados da terra, que tenham
interesse em fazer'estudos geraes ou de especializacgo nas universidadis norte-
americanas, prestarao exactamente a mesma prova, seja na Europa, na Asia ou na
America. Exercergo as funcqces de examinadores, pessoas idoneas nomeadas depois
de acurada consideracao para des-mpenhar tao delicada tarefa. 0 exame tern Por
fim ceterminar os corhecimentos das pessoas no que se refere a comprehensEo do
iiglez oral e escripto, e a correceab em esdrever e a facilidade em se exprimir
nesse idioma. Como j6 ficou dito,.a sua funcqao especial consiste emnevitar
estorvos e gastos desnecesaarios aos estudantes, facilitando desta maneira a sua
adaptacqEo a un meio Ja de si extranho. Por outro lado, estas provas facilitarao
para as universidades a tarefa de determinar se as pessoas que solicitam algum
privilegio especial, ou simplesmrnte adcbiissab aos cursos, estgo capacitados para.
tirar o devido aproveitamento dos seus estudos. A
Damos a segair os nomes dos examinadores nomeados para o Brasil, corn a ad-
vertencia de qul as pessoas interessadas devem dirigir-se a ellel immediatamente
para se inform nmarem sobre a data exacta do exame e outsos particulares:

Dr. P. H. Rolfs, 2 /
Esola Superior de Agriculture e
Veterinaria,
Estado de Minas Geraes,
Vicosa, Brazil, South America

Dear Doctor Rolfs:

Your letter of October 16th has been received. I have looked in the
letter files but do not find a letter from you (or the general manager)
Of August 1930. I have one of June 17th giving definitions of bosque, matta,
cerrado, etc. of great interest to me. The next letter is October 31
telling me that the "fracas" was over, that the white paper sent to you
had been used by Mrs. Mexia, etc.

I am so sorry I did not have the directions for sending the grasses.
I hope' the statement "sem valor" brought the packages to you direct,
that they did not go to Bello Horizonte. I should have written earlier
for directions, or have waited for this letter from you before sending the
packages. I shall be terribly distressed if they fail to reach you.

I hope the Escola will develop some young botanist who will enjoy
caring for the herbarium. Dr. Diehl of the Division of Mycology here is
to send you the first set of duplicates of the fungi. I think I wrote
you that some six new species of smuts were published--I asked the author
(forget his name, here in the Department of Agriculture) to send you
reprint.

I am glad Mrs. Mexia made so good a collection. Vigosa will be
classic territory and a century hence botanists will be combing its hills
for "topotypes". I hope capim gordura will not have taken all the country.
I have been wondering why we do not receive her grasses. We have seen
none from Rio Doce yet nor anything later than 1929 or early 1930. Is the
Escola set of'her plants being mounted? I sent a number of mounted speci-
mens in my packages which may give a young mounter some ideas.

Thank you for A. MUda de Citrus. I have read quite a bit of it--good
practice I sent to the library for your article in the Pan American
Magazine, but they sent Spanish instead of Portuguese. I guessed through
most of it. Isn't the man on p. 98 of Mudas Jose Aquino?

The American Society of Agronomy is affiliated with Ai.A..S. and meets
with it each winter. I fine president is Dean W. W. Burr, University of
Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska; Secretary, Dr. P. E. Brown, Iowa State College,








2--Dr. P. H. Rolfs
0
C- Ames, Iowa. Professor Hitchoock is going to be in Ames next week.
I shall give him a memorandum on Dr. A. Menezes. It may be his name could
be presented at the meeting in December-January. Professor Hitchcock is
rejoicing in another grand daughter. There are now three boys and four
girls.

Love to Clarissa. I shall be glad to hear from her. With very best
wishes,

Sincerely yours,



Agnes Chase, Associate Agrostologist.

Dear Vts Clarissa,

-' Your'letter of the 27th of February just came
* and I was extremely glad to receive the news.

S. The "mudas" left ljst thursday withka most
fervid "gragas a Deus" on my ;art as the ship left
Sthe harbour'of Rio.


--






1.


7 Dierberger did very good workA sending one
of the brothers (not the one I met in Sao4Faulo) to
aassitt us- l' readespatchi -the "mudas" in Rio.


b **:. . .4i
Every available inch of decicspace on the'
steamship '"Maranguape" looked as though it had broken
out with a bad caje of citrus fever. In fact I never
imagined that 4,000 odd "mudas" would take up so much
space. They even placed crates on the Captain's bridge,
and it will be a feat of no small accomplishment to .
get them unloaded at Santarem,where, I upderstand,there
are 'no dock'cranes. *


We wired Bahia and Acife to contact the
.*.. ." Captain of th# boat to see that our recommendations for
handling en route are being carried out, and Also liberally
,; .- ... tipped the boat personnel to give the "midas" a little
"... drink once in a while (not whisky, gin or salt wate~r). -

I have asked Part to let me know in detail as
to how the shipment arrive, and also to give me a report
from time to time as to how their orchard progresses,
*and vll&take a great deal of pleasure in forwarding the
,reports as I receive them to*your father, as I know and
deeply appreciate his interest.

We had the pleasure of seeing this morning a
Mr.HaI1, one of M;.Cox's Forest "nenneers, who spent
some months in Pata, and who told us many things about
the Company's activities there. Feeling that your father
might be intezr-ed, I am attaching some pictures taken

IMPORTANT EMORAITUDA
relative to

The following points are based on the decisions of a joint
meeting of members of the Program, Finance, and Publicity Committees
at Cody Villa, January 21, 1931.i

HIGH-SCHOOL ESSAY:- The subject of this essay is "The
Scenic Highlands." Contestants must be pupils attending the High
Schools of the Scenic H. .-,hlands. L1,7it 1200 words. The first
elimination is to be mat. if more tian two essays are offered from
any one High School, by the English teacher or teachers of each High
School, who will forward to Grosvenor Dawe, Secretary of the Associ-
ated Boards of Trade of the Scenic Highlands, Lake Placid, on or be-
fore February 10th, the two best manuscripts from each High School,
unsigned but with sealed envelope attached bearing name and address
of contestant. Judges will be announced in February.

0ONE-ACT PLAYS:- All one-act plays will be presented in com-
petition at the High School in Lake Wales and not out-of-doors, owing
to sound difficulties. The hour will be later announced. Eisteddfod
tickets will admit all interested in this contest without extra
charge. Judges will be announced in February. All entries close
February 10th.

ORGAN SOLOS- The competitive organ selections are:
A "Concert Overture" Ra-L, Kinder (originally incorrectly credited to
Hollins; B "Indian Serenade" Vibbard. All organ recitals will be

nounced. Eisteddfod tickets will admit all interested in this con-
test, without extra charge. Judges will be announced in February.
All entries close February 10th.

CHORUSES:- In the original outline of program it was
stated that choruses must have no less than 20 members equally divided
as to four voices. It has now been decided that 15 members will be
the minimum, with no definite rule as to the number of voices in each







of the four parts. As choruses will be the outstanding element of
the whole program, all communities that have not yet decided to enter
a chorus in competition should do so at once. All entries close
February 10th.

Dear Sir:

The Hardie representative in Florida has written us re-
garding the shipping of citrus trees to Brazil, where we
understand considerable planting is under way.

It is our understanding that this development is under
your direction and that you are familiar with the citrus
growing business in Florida. Probably you have already
received a copy of the bulletin which we are enclosing,
issued by the United States Department of Agriculture on
the subject "Spraying for the Control of Insectsand Mites
Attacking Citrus Trees in Florida'l

The importance of high pressure spraying is being emphasized
today more than ever, because it has been found that the
most efficient and profitable results are obtained by high
pressure spraying. During the plague in Florida about a year
ago, the government purchased a large fleet of Hardie high
pressure sprayers and were successful in combating the in-
sects that were ravaging the fruit.

A copy of the Hardie 1931 sprayer catalogue is enclosed.
You will find many improvements in the design and construc-
tion of the various outfits which are specially designed and
built for continuous high pressure service. Each and every
pump and outfit has the same general type of design and
construction.

If you have not already done so and are considering install-
ing spraying equipment, we would greatly appreciate it if you
would give us an opportunity of submitting to you particulars
on Hardie sprayers for your particularrequairements. We are
confident you would be pleased with Hardie construction and
efficiency. As an experimental station, we would be willing












...2 Prof. P.H. Rolfs.


3/3/31


to quote special prices as we would naturally like to have
Hardie sprayers used where commercial growers would have an
opportunity of seeing them under the right conditions.

We would be very pleased to receive your inquiries which
would have careful and prompt attention.
