PAGE SIX THE MOUNTAIN EAGLE, WHirESBTHtG, KENTUCKY LETCHERITES IN DETROIT When we walk down 12th St., here in Detroit, we see so many familiar faces from Letcher County, that we seem to be in one of our own small home towns. Everywhere we see men who are going to work in a defense plant, here, since they left their homes in Letcher County, where they were farmers, teachers, merchants, etc. Their wives have donned slack suits and badges and joined the great army of W.O.W.S., or "Women's Ordinance Workers" who are making the implements of war. These women are very busy, and haye only time to dream about their quiet peaceful homes down south, to which they will return when this war is won. Spring has at last arrived in Detroit. Lawns are green, flowers are showing themselves again, and children play in the yards, in the evenings after school. The foremen who have been out on a strike, in many of the defense plants here, returned to work today. We have been carrying on our work for the past three weeks without their supervision. The following are news items of former "Letcherites" who are here in Detroit, now. Mr. and Mrs.'Watson Adams are planning to return to their home at Jeremiah, Ky., for a few weeks. Mr. Benton Back and family spent several days with relatives at Jeremiah, Ky. Accompanying them was Grace Back. They all had a nice vacation. Misses Goldia and Ella Blair were called home on account of the illness of their mother, Mrs. Annie Blair, Jeremiah, Ky. Mr. Venson Caudill, former school teacher of Jeremiah, Ky., returned to his job here, after taking his examination for the army. Mrs. Lester Short is planning to visit her mother and family, Mrs. Betty Blair, Jeremiah, Ky. She is employed by the Chrysler Corporation. Mr. Monroe Blair, who is employed at Cadillac, is visiting his family at Jeremiah, Ky. His brother, Mr. Joe Blair, is also employed here. Mr. David Adams visited friends in Cleveland, Ohio recently. He is a defense work er at Motor Products. Misses Gwendolyn and Jacqueline Blair, small daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Grant Blair are attending the Benjamin Franklin School. They are doing their share to help win the war by taking all their newspapers to school, for the paper drive, and by buying saving stamps. Mr. and Mrs. Clifton Caudill and family, of Carcassonne Ky., were the guests of his siste, Mrs. Grant Blair. Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Back, and Mr. and Mrs. Watson Adams visited the Eastwood Park, Sunday. This is one of Detroit's liveliest amusement parks. Other places we like to go on Sunday are Belle Isle, Royal Oak Zoo, and across the Detroit River, into Windsor, Canada. Mr. and Mrs. Grant Blair and daughters, Gwendplyn and Jacqueline, were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Benton Back, and Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Collins, last Sunday. Other familiar faces whom we see quite often are: Mr. and Mrs. Watson Dixon, Jeremiah, Ky., Misses Marie Adams, and Flora Hampton, Mr. and Mrs. Tounsel Haynes, Joe Haynes, W. R. Back, Charlie Blair, Curwood Blair, Ellis Caudill, Darrel Hampton, Lester Short, Mr. and Mrs. Cliff e, Davis, Jean Fields. Vera James Salyers, Hobart Francis and many others, from good old Letcher county. The Mountain Eagle is like a ray of sunshine to all of us, who are so far away from our homes. Keep it flying! A Former "Letcherite". Eld-ridg- Attention Teachers! Remember that the workshop begins June 5 in the Whitesburg Grade building. This is a rare opportunity to get your college work AT HOME. Garden Enemies Rationing At A Glance Bean beetles are laying their eggs and now is the time to start spraying and dusting. Use Rotenone or magnesium arsenateand follow the directions on the package. Potato beetles Spray with 10 level teaspoons calcium arsenate plus 10 level teaspoons hydrated lime per gallon of water or two level teaspoons Paris Green plus two level teaspoons hydrated lime per gallon of water. Flea beetle Dust or spray with Rotenone. Also Bordeaux mixture is a good repellent. Cucumber beetle. These insects started their work shortly after the seeds were planted. The effects are not noticed sometimes until the vines begin blooming. The treatment should start as soon after cucumbers are up. Dust the hills every three or four days with Rotenone or with a mixture of one part calcium arsenate and fifteen parts Gypsum. A suitable form of Gypsum can be bought from dealers in building materials as fiber plaster. Lime should not be used as its effect may be as serious as that of the beetle. . Tomato blight may be causJ ed by several germs but the results are the same; the spotting and final killing of the leaves. There is" no cure for the disease but there is a prevention which is to copper coat the leaves; spraying with Bordeaux mixture every 10 days to two weeks. Mrs. H. Jackson of Va., is visiting Mrs. D. W. Salyer and friends here-Mrs- . Jackson was the. former Miss Effie V. Salyer and was raised in Whitesburg. She is a daughter of the late Col. L. H. N. Salyer. She has been away from Whitesburg for 25 years. C. Coe-bur- n, v PROCESSED FOODS Blue stamps A8 through Q8 in War Ration Book Four good for 10 points each indefinite ly.

This pertains both to grasses and legumes. At this stage of development a great percent of protein is obtained Mr. and Mrs. Mitt Meyers as well as a greater amount of and Mrs. J. S. Nicholson were vitamin A, both of which are week end visitors in Clinton. of great importance to the Tenn. animal whether young or mature. Then, too, they are more appetizing than the hays cut later in their development. Timothy hay has more food value in it when cut just be fore the bloom than any other time. Then legumes, with one exception, make the most palatable and nutritious if cut in the early bloom. The exception we spoke of is soy bean hay. Experiments show that the best time to cut soybean hay is when the seeds are about 4 mature. The afternoon rather than the forenoon is a better time in which to cut hay; for hay cut in the afternoon contains now; hence dry when ciit. 3-- Upper Bottom Fork News Mrs. A. J.
