THE PEACEFUL REVOLUTIONISTS


Down On The Farm. Over the past quarter of a century a revolution
has taken place in America--a peaceful revolution that has freed
the American public from the need to grow its own food. The role
farmers and others in the agricultural complex have played in
this event is presented in a new slide set from the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture. Titled "The Peaceful Revolutionists," the
195-frame set tells what took place in agriculture and related
fields during the past 25 years to free an entire Nation from the
soil and to make this country the most literate, the most af-
fluent, and the best fed Nation in the world. The presentation
includes information about our food prices and eating habits and
compares them in terms of average wages with other countries and
with the past. The slide set sells for $50 from the Photography
Division, Office of Communication, U.S. Department of Agriculture,
Washington, D.C. 20250. A 35-mm. single-framr(n,jmstrip version

GARDENING HOBBYISTS 3 1262 08740 1104

Is Your Dreamhouse A Greenhouse? Almost every gardener eventually reaches a
point where he decides his green thumb deserves a treat...a greenhouse all its
own. Once the big decision is made to build a greenhouse, there are a few more
things to consider. For instance, how much time, money, and work do you want to
expend on your greenhouse? A hobby greenhouse can range from a simple polyethy-
lene covered framework to a fully automated conservatory with many choices in be-
tween. In "Building Hobby Greenhouses," a new booklet from the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, potential greenhouse owners will find help in making a choice for
their year-round gardening pleasure. The booklet discusses best locations for
greenhouses, basic types and their design and construction, and information on ob-
taining plans and drawings. There are sections on temperature, humidity, and light
control and the equipment needed to keep everything under control. Copies of
"Building Hobby Greenhouses" (AIB..357) are available for 25 cents each from the
Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402
or from GPO bookstores for 15 cents each.


REPELLING INSECTS

Their Attitude Is Poor. Ants aren't the only uninvited guests that can spoil a
picnic...often chiggers, mosquitos, gnats, fleas, ticks, or combinations of these
want to join in the fun. And YOU are on THEIR menu. Granted, a picnic, hike,
camping trip, or any other outdoor activity takes place on the home grounds of
these pests. But since they show no evidence of having a gracious live-and-let-
live attitude, there are protective measures that can be taken. Entomologists of
the U.S. Department of Agriculture have outlined some of these measures in a new
booklet titled "Be Safe From Insects In Recreation Areas." Included is information
on repellents, space sprays, mechanical methods (such as nets and screens), and
other means that can be used to help prevent insect annoyance. Since we can't win
them all, the booklet also tells how to deal with insect bites. Copies of "Be
Safe From Insects In Recreation Areas" (G-200) are available for 10 cents each
from the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, W-shington, D.C.
20402.
