The Daily Nebraskan
Researchers Seek Solution
To Potato Biight Problem
A cure for a new headache afflicting
Nebraska's farmers is being sought by
University researchers. The farmer's
problem is late blight of potato.
It was this blight which caused the
Irish potato famine in 1845 and resulted
in thousands starving and other thousands
fleeing to other countries. The blight has
been a chronic problem in many areas
of the world and the United States.
Nebraska potato farmers, however,
had never been bothered until a sudden
epidemic in 1951. The blight hit again
In 1953, 1954, 1957 and 1958. Nebraskans
had felt safe from the disease because
they thought the area too dry, accord
ing to an article in the winter edition of
the Nebraska Experiment Station Quar
terly, published by the University Col
lege of Agriculture.
The article by J. L. Weining and R.
B. O'Keefe, Extension plant pathologist
and instructor in horticulture, respective
ly, describes how Experiment Station
scientists determined the cause of the
sudden outbreak and helped set up a sys
tem for keeping the blight under control.
The scientists discovered that the
blight epidemic was sparked by the in
troduction of new varieties of potatoes in
to an area where a single variety had
always been rown. New varieties kept
the area in the blight-prone class.
Studies determined the susceptibility
to the blight fungus of various varieties
of Nebraska potatoes. A late blight fore
casting system was set up to warn
growers when temperature and humidity
conditions are right for the blight. Thus
warned, the growers can spray their
crops against the fungus.
The potato varieties have been classi
fied according to whether they have a
high, moderate or low blight potential.
Growers of the high rated varieties must
have a regular spray program regard
less of the warning system, beause once
the blight starts in these varieties spray
ing will not save them.
Those who grow moderate rated var
ieties can wait until conditions are right
for the development of blight and then
spray. Growers of low rated varieties
need not spray until the blight fungus

THi CHURCH FOR ALL...
All FOR THE CHURCH
Ilia Church is the frsa last fac
tor on earth for the building of
character and food eitiunship.
It is a storehouse of spiritusl val
ues. Without trout Church,
neither democracy nor civiliza
tion eao survive. There are four
sound reasons why every person
should attend sarvieas mfularrf
and support the Church. They
are: (1) For bin awn sake. (2)
Fat bin children's sake. (3) Far
the sake of his community and
nstioa. (4) For the sake of the
Church itself, which needs bis
moral and material support.
Plan to f o to church rsfularlr
and read your Bible daily.
WHAT MAGIC INGREDIENTS DO THESE
BOTTLES CONTAIN? Do they hold harmful, in
jurious poisons? Or are they filled with healing
medicines and vitamins? Will they inflict pain, or
will they cure disease?
i But what does it matter? If the contents are
bad, we can pour them out.
But the minds of children is an entirely dif
ferent matter. A small human being can be filled
with selfishness and hate, or he can be filled with
sincerity and love. Unfortunately, evil is more
qaickly dispelled from a glass bollle than from the
soul of a child. For in the human mind bad thought
can grow, and as time goes on, it is more difficult
to replace them with truth and love.
That is why it is so important to instill within
our children a sense of right and wrong at an early
age. Of course, by example, "you" can be a tre
mendous influence. But you need the help of your
church the wisdom of Christ's teachings. With
them, you can fill your heart with the essential in
gredients for a happy and fruitful life.
