Thb scene The annual meeting of the Great Plains Section of the American So- ciety of Horticultural Science will be held in the Mandan-Bismarck and Fargo areas on Aug. 2, 3 and 4. Dr. E. P. Lana, head of the horticul- ture department at North Dakot'l Agricultural College, is a secretary of the group and chairman for the annual meeting. The first day's session will open at the Great Plains Field Statio,~ at Mandan. with Supt. E. J. George conducting a tour of the orchards, shelterbelts, silvaeulture projects, and plant breeding projects at the station. In the afternoon the group will tour the Fort Lincoln nurseries and commercial gardens in the area before driving to Fargo for the remainer of the meetings. The Fargo area meetings will be- gin Aug. 3 with a tour of orna- mental plantinas at Casselton and at the NDAC campus. In the after- noon the horticulturists will tour the fruit and vegetable plots and the greenhouses at NDAC A sup- per at Oak Grove Park in Fargo will conclude the day's sessions. On Aug. 4 the group will visit market garden areas m the Nod River Valley, observing specialty crop production, potatoes anti onions. In the afternoon they will observe the NDAC potato plots and green- house work with potatoes. The Great Plains Section includes nine states--North Daktoa, South Dakota, Minnesota. Wisconsin. Iowa. Kansas. Nebraska. Montana and Wyom ng. and three Canadian pro- vinces Alberta~ Saskatchewan and Manitoba. All persons interested in horti- culture in this area are invited to attend any or all of the group's .i: ! " L meetings or tours, according to Dr. Lana ~TAI~E DEER POPULATION GOOD North Dakota's deer population is in good stmpe, according to cen- sus figures compiled by the game and fish department. Biologist Jim MeKenzie reports,t that the winter deer counts show the t West River mule deer population, to be the highest of any year sincet surveys were begun in 1952. Also,~ il~e slatcwide whitetail population trend appears stable in most areas. The 1960 mule populations on selected study areas west of the Mis- souri river are twice as high as they were in 1956. and show a good in- crease over last year's count. In regard to wlntetailed deer. typi- cally, sonle areas have lower popu- lations than last season, but many areas show the same number as a year ago or increases. However. on a statewide basis, all management units have about the same deer num- bers as they did a year ago. The only exceptions of any con- sequence are the Turtle Mountain and Souris-DesLacs areas, where decreases were observd. Turtle Mountain declines were likely due to the following reasons: (l) The continued to decline in habit dut to clearing of land left.less food and cover, which also influenced (2) the winterkill of 1958-59. This year's lower population is partly an after- math of this situation. Along the Souris and DesLacs rivers the decrease was noted only in areas outside federal refuges. This was due to destruction of habit for commercial developments, after- math of winterkill of 1958-59 and increased numbers of domestic stock using rover bottoms during winters. However, the total whitetail popu- lation, including the federal refuges, in the management unit has held stable. In fact, the total number of deer there m higher than it was in 1956. w~JCs ~ W A FAMiLy IS "R Cg r-0 pJl, I, i. :tmE, USE INSECTICIDES TO CONTROL TR~EE PESTS Control of insects, mites and other pests on shade and ornamental trees ~s a major problem for most home awners. Fortunately, most of these pests can be controlled with insecti- cides now available at ,most seed stores and other places which handle such materials, reports Wayne J. Colberg, NDAC extension entomolo- gist. Equipment needed for applying insecticides usually is not expensive. If instructions are followed, satis- factor:,- control should result. Insect pests most likely to attack your trees this year are aphids, two spotted mites, common red spider, scale insects and borers. Less cam- caterpillars and eotoneaster web- worms. Plants attacked include shrubs. st~ade and fruit trees, ann ornamen- tal plants. Insects injure the plants mostly by eating, sucking or other- wise destroying leaves. O t h e r damage is done by boring into trunks, branches or roots. Fo r control, timeliness a n d thoroughness are important, Colberg emphasizes. Malathion spray is recommended for control of most of these pests. For borers, use DDrP instead of malthion.

The great "break- through" in medicine did not c~me until after 1900. Since then, and particularly since the ] 930's, progress has been phenomenal. New types of equipment and new techniques have made possible cures that would have been out of the questlan just a few years ago. Not until 1953 was it possible to operate directly on the heart, with the aid of the newly developed ."him~rt-lung'" machine. While the patient's motionless heart is probed by the surgeon's knife, the machine takes over the func- tion of pumping blood through the patient's body.
