Cldim Quarantine
Is Best, Way To

The state-patrolled quarantine of1
the townships in the three eastern
tiers of .Washtenaw county due to the
presence of the corn borer has turn-
ished considerable attention toward
the borer itself. The corn borer is ofj
European origin, according to govern-

The Department of Agriculture has
issued a bulletin on the Europear
corn borer and its control. The bul-
letin explains the most injurious stage
of the borer as being that of the
young, or caterpillar stage. And the
pest is of prime importance in that
it not only attacks corn but also a
large variety of useful and ornament-
al plants as well as grasses and
weeds. This naturally increases its
destructiveness and adds greatly to
the difficulty of controlling it and re-
stricting its spread.
Among the plants commonly at-
tacked, especially in the New EnglandI
states, are: The aster, barley, beans,
beets, celery, the chrysanthemum,
cotton, the cowpea, the dahlia, glad-
ioli, hops, millet, peppers, potatoes,
rlubarb, sunflower, and the sorghums.
In the corn the most serious injury
caused by the borer is through the
work of the larvae in the ears and
the stalks. The larvae bore into the
stalk, cutting off nutrition from the
ear, and into the ear itself when the.
ear has had time to develop, totally
despoiling it.
The most effective means of con-
trolling* the spread of the European
corn borer seems to be strictly en-
forced federal quarantine. In des-
troying the borer in the infected areas
arsenical poisons have been found in-
efficient. Some of the more effective
methods are: Regulating time of
planting, early crops appearing to
suffer worst; trap crops, early crops
which attract and are remitted to
gather the moths from the overwint-
ering borers and which are destroyed
at the proper time; and plowing un-
der of the infested corn stubble and
weeds in the fall. The only really
effective measures of control involve
the destruction of infested material.

Second Lecture on School Supervision
Given By Detroit
Principals of schools should be re-
lieved from the burden of actually ar-
ranging and developing the plans of
administration, according to Dr.
Charles L. Spain, deputy superinten-
dent of the Detroit public schools,
who spoke on the."Adiminstration of
Supervision" at 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon in'.theUniversity high
school. In the ideal system of ,ad-,
ministration the principal should have
the full responsibility of carrying out
those plans which the supervisors
have previously developed and per-
To better instruction and to pro-
mote a more scientific attitude in
principals and teachers is an import-
ant objective which may be realized
if supervisors are directly responsible
to superintendents, and work in co-
operation with the principal, he said.
Dr. Spain will conclude his series
of lectures on supervision at 4 o'clock
this afternoon in the University high
school. His subject today will be

August 10 is set as the date of the
official opening of the new University
hospital when the "out" patient serv-
ice will be moved from the old build-
ings into the "out" patient service
located on the lower floors of the
building, with 22 examination rooms
on the first floor, and 12 others in the
surgical wing. Eleven of those on the
first floor are devoted to the depart-
ment of internal medicine. Nine of
I the others will be used by the gen-
eral surgical department while three
will be devoted to dentistry.
The new building is capable of ac-
conimodating 12,000 "in" patients and,
50,000 "out" patients each year. Dur-
ing the last month some 35 crippled.
