NDAC DEVELOPS NEW PLANT DISEASE TEST In 19~9, many North Dakota and Minnesota barley fields had con- siderable loose smut. with the per- cent~ge of smutted heads in some fields running as high as 30 per een~ the result of ~ulanting seed which has ~ecorne badly infected during the 1958 growing season. To help growers avoid a similar yield-loss situation in 1960. the North Dakota State Seed Depart- ment, Fargo, is offering a new ser- vice to seed growers and seeds-men a quick method of determining the amount of loose smoot in barley seed, using, a new technique devel- oper by Dr. Donald Morton, assist- tant pathologist for the North Dak- ota Agricultural Experiment Sta- tion. In using Dr. Morton's method, the seed is procesed to remove the em- bryo (germ) so they can be exa- mined under a microscope to deter- mine the percentage of seed infect- ed with loose smut. Another method would be to plant the seed in a greenhouse and count the infected plants, but this takes about two months. Dr. Morton's embroyo test can be made in a few hours. To avoid loose smut in a barley crop, y6u must use seed with little or no smut in.feetion. Chemical seed treatments used to control covered smut and other diseases will not control loose smut, explains L. A. Jensen, NDAC extenion agronomist. The amount of loose smut in a barley field dose not indicate the amount of the disease in the seed from that field, but only the per- centage of smut-infested seed that was planted. State Seed Department officials urge that harley samples to be test- ed be submitted now. A~bout 8 oun- ces of seu~d are enough. It should be mailed in a seed envelope or other strong carton. Results of the test will be more accprate if seed from each field is sampled and test~ ed separately. Ask for the "Embryo Test" by let- ter when submitting the sample. A charge of 5 dollars per sample will be made by the department. EWE SAID IT, this Dorset ram at the Pennsylvania Farm show in Harrisburg has about the biggest "earrings" in existence.

Approximately a hundred mem- bers of the Burleigh County Mental Health Assn. heard Bismarck psy- chiatrist, Dr. Cecil Baker. trace the history or psychiatry and dis- cuss factors in mental illness Tues- day evening at Trinity Lutheran Church. It is a mistake to worship a techn- ique of treatment. Dr. Baker emp- hasized, as opposed to doing what is of benefit to the patient. Modern psychiatric scmnce recog- nizes that man is physiological. mobile, gregarious and a symbolic thinker, and he must be treated on all levels. Citing a recent magazine article on the practice, of psychiatry, Dr. Baker deplored a current tendency to regard the treatment of mental illness as a matter of dispensing pills or psychoanalysis, or a com- bination of both. Total treatment of mental illness, he explained, must take into ac- count physiological factors which may contribute to the condition which is to be corrected. In the evolution of psychiatry, various schools of thought have era- phasized specific contributory fact- ors to mental illness, whereas today, the science of psychiatry emphasizes a fusion of all recognized psycho- physiological treatment techniques. lenic culture stressed a so-called natural approach and m so doing, fostered the art of medicine.' Thus man's psychological nature came to be regarded apart from his physio- logical make-up. References m St. Paul and St. Augustine to the subconscious pre- ceded Sigmund Freud's later de- velop:nent of concepts linking sub- conscious processes with mental ill- ne~, Dr. Baker noted. The speaker touched briefly on contributions by Messmer, Adler, Levin, Jung and other pioneers in the field of psychiatry. Messmer emphasized the use of hypnotism, Freud developed the idea of sub- conscious factors, Levin stressed Man's relationship to his environ- ment and the existentialists develop- ed the concept of Man as a sym- bolic thinker with power to antici- pate death and catastrophy. Modern psychiatrists do not wish to identify with any single school of thought but seek rather to apply all available knowledge in their treatment of patients. Members of the Mental Health Assn. elected Eugene Rich president, Robert Lundberg yice president, Martha Dunn secretary and Mrs. Olov Gardebring treasurer. --4:3-- Bruce Johnson ing, plus some transmission lines in Iowa. Johnson. 47, will be director of reclamation for the regional area. Johnson is a native of Grand Forks and a graduate ,~f the Uni- versity of North Dt~k ~ta. He has been with the bureau 20 years 17 of them in North Dakota. Johnson said he has had no word of a successor here. At Billings he succeeds Frank Clinton. Clinton is being transferred March 1 to Salt Lake City, Utah, to have charge of the Upper Colorado re- gion. Rep. Don L. Short (R-ND) told the Associated Press in Bismarck, "It' is encouraging to note that Mr. Johnson will *be able to ma,ntain his long interest in the Garrison diversion project, which is of crit- ical importance to our state." Johnson has been a leader in support of the diversion plan, un- der which water would be taken from the Garrison reservoir for ir- rigation, municipal and industrial uses in eastern and southern North Dakota. As regional director, he will re- tain responsibility over the area in which the diversion progra,~n would operate. Johnson said he will go to Wash- ington Saturday to confer with Re- clamation bureau officials. He ex- pects also to appear as a witrN~ss later in behalf of the Garriso]l di- version authorizing legislation when ~t is taken up by congressional com- mittees.
