"General Lee: Traitor or Patriot?"
His book, concerning the senior
major general under George
Washington at the time of the
American Revolution, will be
published April 23 by the Louisi

My interest in the revolution
began, Dr. Alden explained, when
I was a graduate student at the
University of Michigan. With the
fine William L. Clements library
of American history on the
campus, I naturally became inter
ested in that part of our Ameri
can heritage, he said.
My interest in history, develop
ing from my use of the library,
he said, led to my first book,
"Southern Colonial Frontier."
Colonial general Gage capitvated
me next, he related, and I wrote
"General Gage in America."
Then, Alden said, one thing led
to another and I moved on

Weed researchers at the Uni

effective ways of controlling the
annual headache for farmers.
Here are some of the projects
which are underway:

various ways to control weedy
grass in bromegrass. They're us

Lincoln and Lancaster brome
mixed with hairy chess and
downy brome. The scientists are
using varying rates of nitrogen
in conjunction with other weed
control practices. There will be
chemical herbicides applied, using
a mixture of TCA and dinitro
compounds. Mowing and burning
also will be compared in their
effects on weedy bromes and
jdea of the fertility treatments
is to increase the vigor of the.

'of tht smooth brome. Mowing
j and burning may eliminate the
seed source of the weeds, and
subsequent crops may be rela
tively free from weedy brome.
Past results with TCA has given
good kills of the undesirable
plants, but the smooth brome has
been injured somewhat. There)
are no recommendations yet fori
its use. I
Another experiment which is
designed to find the best kinds
and rates of application of chem
icals to kill grassy weeds in al
falfa will be underway.
Sagebrush control experiments
in the western part of the state
will continue. The tests ere made
through 'the cooperation of the

various pseudonyms, of which
"Anglus Americanus" was per

acquaintances thought him to be
insane. According to Alden, Lee
would say anything anytime.
"There was nothing ordinary
about Charles Lee, he remarked.
And since no one had made a
real effort to get information
about Lee, I decided to write
about him. I traveled through the
South and East, gathering fur

searched through Lee's letters, old
