Spray Mosquito Swamps
Mosquitoes are effectively con
trolled by DDT. According to a de
partment of agriculture report,
“the most reliable method of apply
ing larvicides over a wide range of
conditions is by means of spray
ers.” The wet, swampy mosquito
breeding areas should be sprayed.
Much relief can be obtained around
the home by spraying screens, trees
and shrubs where the mosquitoes
light. Any good sprayer can be used
depending upon the amount of
spraying to be done. The same
sprayer also may be used for ether
Divorce for Gabbiness
An old penal code of China pro
vided that a man could obtain a
divorce if his wife was too talkative,
or if she disregarded his parents,
according to Encyclopaedia Britan
aica. He also could obtain a di
vorce, the code held, if his wife had
an envious or suspicious temper.
Oriental Rng Colors
The colors and forms of nature
have been the inspiration of weav
ers of Oriental rugs through the
ages. Because of this the basic
colors and fundamental designs of
Oriental rugs have a fresh feeling
which, as one decorator points out,
imparts a touch of warmth and
hominess to modem interiors.
“New Look” for Dinihg Room, Too
TOP PHOTO—This drab, dull dining room with its dingy wall*
paper and dark furniture demanded a “new look” which could be
provided by a thorough paint-up, clean-up job. LOWER PHOTO—
After a few days work, the same room with same furnishings looked
like this. A single coat of cheerful Kem-Tope covered the old, dingy
Wall-paper and two coats of enamel paint added new life and smart*
ness to the old fashioned furniture.

Millions of Maps
When the United Nations invaded
occupied Europe they took with
them 125 ftilllion maps, the result of
a “combined operations” job by the
corps of engineers, the army air
forces and the best brains of mili
tary intelligence and thousands of
enlisted personnel in the army.
Aerial photographs have com
pletely taken away the "mystery”
of the Pacific islands, and the loca
tion of every hut and palm tree.
More original maps of France were
produced by the Allies in 2 years
than by France herself in 2,000
Entertaining New Fork
There are in New York City 2,320
amusements places, il,438 places to
eat and 5,201 places to drink as
well as 522 hotels.
Plants Discover Minerals
A possibility that certain types of
plant growth may come to be more
widely used as clues to mineral de
posits has been suggested by Uni
versity of Wyoming workers. They
point out that selenium indicator
and accumulator plants are now
commonly relied upon as guides to
rocks and soils which carry that
element. They suggest that vegeta
tion also may be used as a guide to
other minerals. Certain toxic vege
tation is known to carry relatively
high rare-metal values, molybde
num being one example.
I Miss America of 1947 (center),
Barbara Jo Walker of Memphis,
and other models show a completely
washable wardrobe of formal attire
at a recent convention of laundry
owners. Miss America’s evening
gown is of white chintz. The model
at her right wears an evening gown
of striped cotton. Other gowns',
left to right, are a jacket-and-dress
set of cotton, a bridal gown of cot
ton pique, an evening suit of cotton
velvet and an evening gown of cot
ton velveteen. The style show at
which this photo was taken wa(
part of a demonstration of how
manufacturers are working with
the laundry industry to produce
new washable fabric marvels.
Fresh Produce Markets
Faneuil Hall market in Boston is
200 years old and the French mar
ket in New Orleans is 150 years old.
Other markets, handling fresh
fruits and vegetables that are more
than 100 years old include Pearl
street market in Cincinnati, Dock
street market and Callowhill street
market in Philadelphia, and the
Roanoke avenue market at Norfolk.
Many others have been operating
for more than 50 years. When these
markets were built the produce was
hauled by horse and wagon, or
brought in by water. Most of the
produce now arrives by rail.
