G-rowers in the southern Part of thne *2ejstern-Shore ist-rict of IMaryland and Virginia are suffering an almost c omplate l-,osq of 'Che late potato crop,. due to the work of the potato ttuoer moth,

In Texas and southern California the boll worm seems to ",,e ev-e:n m.ore troublesome than usual, both a-, a corn and as a cotton pest.

The season as a whole has been normal from an entomological point of view. No widespread ser ious grasshopper outbreaks developed despiite the threatening conditions reported in the early paft of the season. The Hessian, fly, as a whrole, was not so serious as usual though Kansas suffered very seriously from infestation by this pest.

In May, June, and July a very wide,: read and serious cut break of
cutwormns took place, extending over practically the entu;re region east of the 100th meridian and also along th e Pa c -'f ic C oa s to, the 'U u nu mza 11v early appearance of the cotton lea:[ worm bat little genc-r! damage wvas done by this pest and in many sections it is evaii provir- be-neficial -in hze:stening the maturing of late bolls,

Except or the localized ou'ubreaks in tne Delta. secltio-ns of Mississippi and Louisiana LcTiinch bug vwas not scr ious.

During the season the Mexic-anx bean beetle vury rmter.'ally increa :ed
its range. It is now known to occur over the greater part of West Virginia, southwestern Pennsylvania, southern Indiam., and practically all of Ohio, with very little extension of territory to the south and west.

The boll weevil infestation as a -*o le was subnormal.


The codling moth was penerally *nore prevalent than dn'ring the last; three years in the East-Central 'States; op. thi_ cther hLand zho plr curculio was below normal in the .eor-,a fruit belt.The Oriental peach moth has advanced its range of' serious, abundance
southeastward to the Sand.I~li zccti on d' North Carolina and, southrestwvard- to the Firmingham section of Alabama,.

The Giptsy-moth situation was generally favoreole ex.-ept in the Cape Cod section of 1.aszach,.iEz:tts, and th2 IT Jeirsey center wcless ceriouc
