WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON Elsewhere on the investigation front: A probe into Agriculture Department affairs was opened by the Senate Agriculture committee, with particular emphasis on short- ages in the department's price support program. New inquiries into the purchasing program at Wright-Patterson air force base at Dayton, Ohio, have resulted in a guilty plea by a former procure. ment employee to five counts of receiving gifts from an air force contractor and of conspiracy to commit fraud. An Indiana federal- state housing administrator was~ fired for obtaining through his own government agency insurance for an apartment house he owned. Ousted commander of the army's tank arsenal in Detroit, Brig. Gen. David J. Crawford, was demoted to rank of colonel and shipped to Turkey after investigation dis- closed he had accepted fees from! companies doing business with the l tank arsenal while he was in com- mand. -~WHH-- tIow much is a billion? This question is bothersome to many of us who rarely have occasion to deal with figures much above a hundred or so, in our own personal affairs. Let's look at a billion this way-- it would take a clock 31 years and 8 months to tick off one billion seconds. And carrying it one step fur- ther: During the life of the now- defunct Economic Cooperation Administration, whose duties now are charged to the Mutual Seeur-~ ity Agency, this country sent about $12 billion abroad. At the rate of one dollar per second, it would take 371 years and 6 months to spend that total $12 billion. ---WHH-- Things-I-Never-Knew-Until-Now Department: The Veterans Admin- istration doesn't know how many patients its hospitals can hold. The VA's excuse is that VA branch offices, after World War II, were given a free hand to operate with- out keeping Washington informed. Hospitals were altered to meet existing needs, and later the branch offices were abolished. Records they were supposed to have been keeping were lost in the shuffle, the VA says. --WHH--- Who says Uncle Sam is just Santa Claus slimmed down, inso- far as the 48 states are concerned? A tax table prepared by the Tax Foundation shows that taxes go- ing to the federal government from Wyoming total $287.53 per capita. Grants to Wyoming from the federal government amount to $80.82 per capita. Twenty-five of the 448 states pay less taxes, per capita, to the federal government than does our own Wyoming, the table discloses. The figures, for fiscal 1951, were compiled from Treasure Department reports. CARELESS SPRAYING FOR CATTLE GRUBS NOT EFFECTIVE Laramie--There are several tea- ,sons why some stockmen fail in their efforts to rid their stock of cattle grubs. Most failures can be traced to careless spraying, says T. R. Robb, entomologist with the Wyoming Agricultural Extension Service. For the most effective spraying,, the spray nozzle should be held no" farther than 18 or 24 inches from the back of the animal, and at a right angle. Holding the nozzle at almost right angles to the back will deliver the spray evenly and at full force Adjust your sprayer so that, with a single nozzle, the area sprayed will be no more than three or four inches in diameter, says Robb. You won't need to use much over 400 pounds pressure for the best effect. Spraying cattle from a dis- tance of four or five feet or more is.a waste of time and effort. The spray must be delivered at close range, thoroughly and carefully, so that the Rotenone penetrates in- to the grub holes. Adding more and more Rotenone won't help you. The original 7.5 pounds of ! 5-percent Rotenone per 100 gallons of water is all you need. Spraying cattle in large pens where they can move about easily is not effective, Robb warns. A narrow chute with a catwalk on each side that will permit the sprayer operator to work directly above and close to the animals is most successful. By a few simple precautions, l you can do your cattle and your- i self the good turn of a good ,spraying job. A careful job of spraying is the most effective. 011899 NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR UNITED STATES PATENT Bureau of Land Management, Land and Survey Office, Cheyenne, Wyoming.
