'.t the University of Toronto before
accepting his present post at Cornell
two years ago. He was recently
appointed president-elect at Smith.
Professor Davis' special field is the
rcy of 18th century English. He
has particularly devoted himself to
research and devaluation upon Jona-
than Swift, his times and his works.
He has frequently contributed ar-
ticles on 18th century English, and
has edited several authoritative
wor ks upon Swift for American pub-

share of trouble to the healthy growv-t

the botany department, remarked.
St'hese insects, all of which can
barely be seen with the naked eye,
attack the young part of the plant
and destroy, sometimes leaving it
dead overnight, Professor Gustafson
said. Because most of them are suck-
ing insects, that is, they have a struc-
ture whereby they draw out the juice
of the leaf, it is difficult to destroy
them for it is necessary to hit this

grreen white or red drssiay be dim-
in~ited with nicotine sulphate.
Red spiders attack and destroy
the plant chlorophyll and are very
difficult to free from the plant once
started Professor Gustafson said.
They build nests on the leaf which
seems necessary for the activity of
the spider and if it is washedi of f
regularly, it is frequently possible to
rid the plant of them.
The best check on damning off
fungi is to free the groun~d of any
trace of the insect before potting the
plant, he pointed out. This may be
done, he said, by heating the soil
thus effecting a steam sterilizer, by
saturating it with formaldahyde, or
with sulphur dust.
