Not Always A Crippler
People have a lot of strange notions about diseases, one of
the most prevalent is that. infantile paralysis kills or serious-
ly cripples whomever it strikes. Proof to the contrary comes
in the statement of Dr. Hart E. Van Riper, acting medical
director of the national foundation for infantile paralysis,
that as high as 75 per cent of those stricken with the disease
can be expected to recover without serious after-effects.
In an article appearing in the June issue of "Hospitals"
magazine, Dr. Van Riper goes on to say that the paralysis
so commonly regarded as an integral part of polio has been
shown to be a comparatively rare sequel of a wide spread
innocuous ailment. It is notable, however, that Dr. Van
Riper predicates a maximum recovery rate on accurate
diagnosis, adequate medical nursing care with early ther-
apy and immediate hospitalization.
With the polio epidemic season usually ranging from
late June through September-already evidencing itself
throughout the land, it would seem wise for the nation to in-
ventory its medical resources, so that crippling effects of
the disease may be held to a minimum. It is comforting to

treatment available at general hospitals wherever polio

Florida agreulturists were
shown a new celery variety, re-

viewing experiments and discus-
sing results with the University of
Florda's crops of Everglades re-

DDT is still tops among insecti-
cides after another year of tests.
The new celery variety, not yet
named, was developed by Dr. G.
R. Townsend. of the Everglades
station, collaborating with Dr. B.
A. Emerson of Cornell university.
Bred from crosses between Turk-
ish celeraic and the commercial I
variety known as Cornell 19, the
new celery has proven virtually
immune to early blight. Without
fungicide treatment of any kind.
stands of the new variety are now
thriving at the experiment sta-
tion. Nearby plots of the Supreme
Golden variety have succumbed to
blight despite 16 different fungi-
The new bean developed at the
Everglades station is being re-
leased to seedsmen this year. An
improvement on the Florida Belle
variety, it will be known as the
Dixie Belle. Growers who saw It

A New Booklet On DDT
Facts and Fiction
has just been published from the pen of C. F.
Ladeberg, manager of the Insecticide Division of
the Kilgore Seed Company, which indeed is a most
timely and informational treatise which should be
in the hands of every progressive farmer.
To the end that this is possible Kilgore has
supplied the stores at Belle Glade and Paho-
kee with a limited number of these booklets,
which are free upon application. They are book-
lets that should be preserved for the farmer's
library, as it will be a work often sought for, the
latest and best information on DDT and its com-
panion insecticides, for it contains the formula
and manner of use of all the combinations possible
of this important new WONDER insecticide, along
with its chemical history and adapted uses.
