These moth control agents--most of which contain paradichloro- benzene to do the real control job--work best in "sealed or semi- sealed containers such as cloth- ingbags, trunks, and boxes. Many homemakers place moth crystals in wool clothes only dur- ing the summer, although pro- tection is actually a year around job. Moths know no season in the modern day of well-heated homes. Moths in warm closets are as active during the winter as they are in the summer. Here is a list of simple rules for adequate moth protection: 1. Use moth control crystals or spray in sealed or semi-ealed containers. 2. Place crystals on top of clothing to be protected so the hav/er-than-air fumes will sink down among the clothes, Paradi- chlorobenzene will not stain clothes. $. Use moth control agents all year around fro, anything con- i taining wool, fur, feathers, or other animal-based materials. 4. Use at least 6 ounces of the ,control material in average-sized trunks (30x18x16 inches). It will last for approximately 10 weeks. 5. Have clothes cleaned prior to storage, but do not depend on just cleanliness to protect them from moth damage. e. Use paradichlorobenzene in ceder .hests because clothes al- ready contaminated with moths are as susceptible to damage as in any airtight box. The cedar cheat itself keeps out moths but will not control moths al- ready inside it. m 7ruth Be careful about using control agents in thin plas- tic bags. Some plastics soften ensiderably when in dense fumes. 'Legend of the Lost." On hib return, John won't have to do any more traveling until he files to Japan in July for "The Townsend Harris Story."

WHEN the switchboard operator at the Hotel Sahara in Las Vegas awakened Donald O'Connor at nine ayem with a call from Anchorage, Alaska, he thought he was hearing things. The call was from Morton Farrell, a complete stranger to Donald. As it turns out, Farrell is a wealthy lumberman whose daughter Ellen, an O'Connor fan, was celebrating her 17th birthday the following day and as a special gift wanted most of all to meet him, With Donald's permission, Farrell i explained, he would accompany his daughter by plane to the desert re- sort the next day, meet him, then return to their northern home. Much to Donald's amazement, they did just that. Before returning to Alaska, however, the Farrells were the guests of Donald and his wife Gloria at his early show that even- ing. JERRY LEWIS has a special reason for wanting his wife Patti to accompany him to a recording session when he recorded "I Dream of You" for his coming album. "Thirteen and a half years ago I was in New York and out of work," says Jerry. "At that time Patti and I were just going to- gether. She was singing with Jim- ,my Dorsey at the time and one day asked me to accompany her to a recording session. The number she recorded was 'I dream of yOU. BACK from New York where she appeared on the Perry Como show, Peggy King claims to be the relaxed singer's number one fan. "Why, you wouldn't have thought he was a guest on ,my show instead of my being one on his," she says. "He's the nicest man I ever worked with."

Stop Road Horrors DRIER WORKS ON CORN, GRAIN AND HAY CROPS Corn, small grain and hay can all be dried with the same drying equipment. If you are planning to buy drying equipment this year, get it earty en- ough for ue on all three crops. The suggestion is from A. H. Schulz, NDAC extension agricul- tural engineer. If you plan to combine your corn give some early thought to how this job will be done. Corn harvested with a corn combine must be dried before it can be placed in storage. For the farmer who wi]l feed his corn, unheated air drying will do an excellent job with a much low- er initial investment than is requir- ed for heated air equipment, Schulz says. During some late falls, tlis equipment may not dry the corn completely but it will dry it enough to make excellent feed and enough to prevertt spoilage during the winter months. Drying can be com- pleted in the spring. A blower that will dry corn with natural unheated air will also do an excellent job of drying small grains of hay. If you have a large volume o corn, or if you plan to sell your corn. you had better plan to either buy a heated air drier or have your corn dried at some elevator, Heated air driers suitable for corn are eguaLly suitable for hay or small grain. Many types of driers are available. Start early to determine the one that will suit your needs best. See your neighbors that have dried hay or corn, visit your county extension agent, andt see your dealers. All can help solve your drying problem.

This is called to at- tention by Julia E. Brekke, exten- sion clothing agent at NDAC. Remember these pointers when storing your winter clothing to pro- tect it from moths, Miss Brekke advises: "Clean all your woolens before storing. Moths are not attracted to manmade fibers, but are attracted to certain types or soil, Be sure to clean clothes made of synthetic the most widely used moth preven- tives. Use 1 pound for a closet 5 feet by 2 feet by 8 feet. With plastic bags, put the moth bars or crystals in a thin cloth bag so they won't touch the plastic. Place the container with moth balls or crys- tals at the top of closet or hag so vapors will filter down through the garments. Sprays are also effective. Read la- bels and follow instructions care- fully if you use them. Give protection to blends con- taining even a small amount of wool as moths can damage the fa- bric badly in getting to the wool. --Stop Road Horrors-- PSC INSPECPOR TO ATTEND MEETING J. C. Gull, chief inspector of the North Dakota public service com- mission department of weights and measures, and vice president of the national conference on weights and measures has been invited to pre- side at several sessions of the grotip's 42rid National Conference in Washington, D. C. June 2nd thru 7th. The national conference is a group of men elected from each state whose purpose is to unify the standards of measurements in all states according to the specifi. cations approved by the bureau of standards in Washington. As far as North Dakota is con- cerned, Gull said, we are up in the air as far as tle measurement of liquid gas is concerned. No stan- dard of measurement h yet been approved, however, we do have a matter that is quite accurate but cannot be used as a standard. I be- fibers also. lieve that this conference may re- ..... sult in the adoption of a standard "wasnable womens ca De maue I "u" moth repellent by treating themlmeasure for hId as. when they are rinsed. Otherwise, buy garments that have been dura- bly mothproofed and need no spec- 1 ial care in storing." [ When storing clothes, fasten all closings and hang on sturdy hang- ers, Miss Brekke suggests. Bags with zipper closures are more se- cure than those with other type closures. Plastic bags with heat sealed seams are more air tight than those with Plain seams. If se- wed, seams should be bound or fiat felled to keep vapor fumes frord escaping. "If you use a paper bag, plain or treated, it must be kept tightly sealed for complete protection, and moth preventives should be used," the clothing specialist say. Moth bals, cakes, or crystals are 22 FEET DOWN IN 10-INCH HOLE A flrenn and fellow rescue worker try to see the boy, trapped $2 feet down. The hole gets to only 10 Inches in diameter.
