WHY WE SHOULD ELECT CONE
Governor Fred P. Cone speaks here tomor-
row in the interest of his candidacy for the
office of United States senator from Florida.
For those who will be unable to hear him, we
would like to present several good reasons
why "Old Suwannee' should be elected.
To begin with he's a man of force and de-
cision, of known capability and courage; and
he never dodged an issue in his life. When
the U. S. senate is considering a measure that
affects the people of his, state, you won't find
him out'at a ball game, or neglecting to vote
or arrange a pair on important issues.
The editor of The Star served overseas in
the World War and if he had a son of can-
non-fodder age, he'd rather have a strong
man of Fred Cone's views on war representing
Florida in tlhe U. S. senate than a weak sls-

Good Technique Vital

In Transplanting Plants


Transplanting is a task which one
must perform throughout the gar-
den year. So vigorous are the young
plants which we move, so often do
they survive carelessness, we are
apt to neglect even the simple
technique which will greatly reduce
the proportion of failures.
But failures do occur and not all
result in dead plants which can be
removed and replaced. Often care-
less transplanting will result in an
ailing plant, or one which fails to
produce flowers or fruit of good
quality. The following points, if
carefully observed, will insure that
your young plants have a reason-
able chance of survival.
Dig a hole large enough to spread
out the roots without crowding. In
the case of seedlings which have a
long tap root, it will help promote
stocky growth if this tap root is
shortened. Avoid permitting air
pockets to be formed among the
roots. See that soil is filled in prop-
erly to cover the roots, and then
firm the soil, so that contact is
close, since without this contact the
roots cannot absorb water from the
soil. Seedlings should usually be
set a little deeper than they stood
in the flat. In the case of over-
grown plants, it may be wise to lay
the stem horizontally under the soil
for several inches, rather than let
it project above the surface; this
is especially the case with toma-
toes.
,i Some of the top of each seedling

he r il should be soaked after the


transplanting operation is finished.
A little dry soil sprinkled over the
surface will check evaporation. If
the sun is hot the plants should be
shaded for a day or so by means
of paper tents, berry boxes, or
similar device, until the roots begin
to absorb enough moisture to bal-
ance evaporation.
Small seedlings may be planted
in holes made by a dibber. This
is a steel, wood or iron tool with a
round blunt point which is stabbed
into the ground and twisted, a much
faster operation than using a
trowel.
Observe distances carefully in
transplanting. The little plants may
seem lonely when set two or three
feet apart, but remember the size
they will attain at maturity and see
that they have room enough to
develop their best.
Vigorous growth in seedlings will
be assured if plant food is applied
while they are small. It will en-
able them to develop a good root
system, which will feed them well.
In transplanting vegetables mix.
thoroughly one level tablespoonful
of complete plant food with the soil
in'the bottom of the hole before set-
ting the plant. Then apply plant
food over a radius two feet from
the plant at the rate of one rounded
teaspoonful to each square foot of
ground.
Four to six weeks later another
application of plant food at the rate
of two pounds per 100 square feet
may be made. This is equivalent
to a rounded teaspoonful for two
square feet. Apply evenly over the
soil surface except that immedi-
ately adjacent to the plant.

IT WAS HIM
A hunter and his guide had
taken refuge in an abandoned
cabin during a storm.
"The feller that lived in this
cabin," said the guide, "was an
inventor. He invented a rifle cart-
ridge' loaded with nitroglycerlin-
stead of powder." '
"I suppose those spots on the
wall there are the explosive," said
the hunter.
"Nope," replied the guide, '.they
are the inventor."
