Roger Babson Reports Our Federal Debt The direct debt of our Federal Government today, for which gov­ ernment bonds or short-term, bills are issued is approximately $240 billion. This means that when you buy a government bond as the best pos­ sible security, you should realize that many billions in these bonds have been issued. They are looked upon by banks, educational insti­ tutions, and other investors like yourself as the safest place in which to have one's mpney, but it is not generally realized how many such bonds are outstanding. It is as if you were buying shares of stock in a corporation and looked only at the price without giving any attention to the number of shares issued. In addition to these bonds, the government has also guaranteed billions of dollars in other fiscal obligations. These are known as \contingent liabilities,\ such as the guaranteed home mortgages, loans to farmers, aid to colleges, hospitals, veterans, etc. Although the U. S. is the greatest country in the world, it is very generous and extravagant. Furthermore, if we should go into a depression the Federal Government would take on some liabilities of states, munici­ palities, farmers, veterans, and many business concerns in order to prevent bankruptcies. All of the money being spent on armaments is not spent on missiles and other forms of explosives. When I visited Cape Canaveral in Florida and saw one of the' mis­ siles explode (all of us were in an underground vault watching via television), I saw a million dollars evaporate in a few seconds. This is not true of many military ex­ penditures. The i 'adar system which encircles this country to give us advance notice of enemy bomb­ ers is a good investment,—as are also our nuclear submarines, air­ plane fields, highways, etc. I recently visited Washington, D. C. and was astonished to find that our Federal Government is building the largest and best air­ field in the world. It is primarily for jet planes, and has runways two to three miles in length. War or no war, this is surely a good investment This airfield is about 20 miles-from Washington and the government is building a straight new highway from the airfield to the center of Washington. But this is not all. Some 12 miles south of the airfield is planned a most OCTOBER 20 - 21 - 22 New Ladies & Children's Shoe Store MANY PRIZES GIFTS FOR EVERYONE YOU ARE INVITED TO COME IN AND INSPECT THIS NEW, MODERN DEPARTMENT SHOE STORE SPRINGVILLE, N.

To eliminate this there will be tanks on the roof which will hold 100,000 gallons of water, which, in 2 hours, would clear the roof of any contamination from fallout I understand that mammoth airfields and structures similar to this arc planned for. areas near all the largest cities. Regardless of what is said in Congress or by Presidential candi­ dates we should realize that ex­ penditures have to increase rather than decrease. A tremendous effort must be made to keep the budget in fair balance in order to protect our gold supply and our credit abroad. The U. S. dollar must be kept sound as a means of protec­ tion. It is foolish to talk about re­ duced taxes. With the exception of reducing foreign aid and help to farmers, veterans, and other large and politically strong groups, we are bound to have higher federal costs and higher direct and indirect taxation. Let us pay these in­ creased taxes cheerfully and thank God we are living in the U. S. instead of anywhere else in the world. Fish Game WORLD by Mortimer Norton Even though hunters are getting into the thick of the game bird and animal shooting season, anglers are by no means idle at this time. Late autum fishing offers good and vigorous sport, with fine catches made in many of the mountain and lowland lakes and streams. During the past few days, for ex­ ample, fishermen have taken smallmouth bass from Lakes Pise- co, Indian, Saratoga, George, Cossayuna,, Otsego, Oneida, On­ tario, Champlain, and the_ Sacan- daga Reservoir, along with other waters in the southern Adirondacks and outlying districts. With the water temperature lowering, the fish remain inshore a large share of the day, and in the evenings or early morning will rise to the surface to seize insects and bugs that may be found there. On these occasions the feather- minnow, bass bug float, hair bug K tiny plug, or small spoon will prove tempting to hungry bass when cast to the lily pad patches, weed beds, or sunken log areas where the fish conceal themselves. You'll find the bass to be more lively and possess keener appetites than was the case during the warm summer days. This may not be as noticeable in spring-fed lakes, or where jutting rocky points-make cool, deep retreats, but in fairly shallow spots, or in rivers and streams, this condition will be more apparent. A bass connected with a fly rod or spin casting outfit will give you all the thrills hoped for in late sea­ son fishing, and test your skill to the limit. Under the situation, a black bass gives as creditable an account of himself as does a rain­ bow trout. •But autumn angling also provides fine catches or walleyed pike, northern pike, pickerel, and especi­ ally muskellunge. The walleyes will have left their deep water summer haunts and come inshore to feed on minnows and other forms of natural food, and the' northerns will have followed suit. These fish will seize a minnow trolled or still-fished over their usual feeding grounds, or will grab a June Bug spinner baited with a small perch or chub, pork strip, or ball of angleworms. They will also go for shiny spinners, bright streamer flies, and plugs. Look for walleyes and northerns along the weedy stretches of shores where there is some depth of water. Walleyes in rivers will be more accommodating to the still- fisher or bait caster. Live bait fishing from shore, or a boat, at this season will be the means- of bringing large northerns to net, as is frequently practiced at the Scan- doga Reservoir. Plug casting from shore will like­ wise induce big pike to strike, especially in those coves bush-lined and grassy banks allow you to keep concealed and drop your plug, spoon, or feathered spinner several feet out and reel i\ slowly to cause a weaving and ducking movement. Bullheads, sunfish, yellow perch, rock bass, calico bass, and similar species' of panfish are ready on sunny days to take angleworms, small crawfish, and crickets. Perch, in particular, will also seize feather-minnows, small feathered spinners, and tiny spoons or plugs, and for this reason they make top favorites from the sport angle on light tackle .at this part of the year. You are apt to note that the fla­ vor of black bass, rock bass, and yellow perch has improved over the sultry summer days, and this is another important factor in their favor for anyone who likes to eat fish as much as catch them: Right now is about the best time of the year to go after the stubborn muskies of the St. Lawrence River, and it's worth traveling many miles for the chance to conquer one of these water tigers. Take your Sturdiest trolling tackle, and' be ready for a long rough, unrelenting battle if you're lucky enough to make a solid connection with an adversary of this .character. practical method of coping with these is to discard them and select jearlier varieties. Placing plastic sheets over them at night will pro­ tect them against frosts. Or if you can pot them up (even in bud or bloom stage), and bring them indoors for house plants. It's no fun raising mums if they don't put on a show for you in fall before a black frost hits, so I'd concentrate on getting some earlier varieties. Incidentally, if you have been losing mums over winter, chances are they smother out due to ice and water. The best way to keep mums over winter is to dig up clumps and move them to a cold- frame, packed closely together. They keep fine this way for us. By spring each clump will yield many new shoots and divisions. I root the young shoots in sand and start a new collection this way. A rooted cutting in spring can be a big husky plant by fall. HAWTHORN NOTES r We've had a lot of complaints from gardeners telling us that their hawthorn trees have leaves with black spots, caus­ ing them to shed. This trouble is a leaf blight, a fungus that winters over on fallen leaves. That means you should rake the fallen leaves now and burn them.'l Also next spring you should start to spray the tree while dor­ mant, using lime-sulfur, 1 part in 8 parts of water. Then as soon as the leaves begin to open, spray with Zincb and repeat in two weeks. Actidione, an antibiotic fungicide also does a good job if applied 3 times at 10 -day Intervals, starting in Mid-July. Incidentally, many hawthorns have a gall formation on them which many gardeners assume are seed pods. These growths are caused by an orange rust fungus which attacks both leaves and fruits, causing severe defoliation and deformation of fruit. Control: Spray hawthorns with ferbam, 4 or 5 times at 7 to 10-day intervals when the orange masses appear. If you have Junipers nearby, spray them too. GREEN THUMB CLINIC- A reader writes; \Why is it I can't root ivy? The cuttings always turn black and die.\ Your cuttings dry up belore they get a chance to root. Try placing some moss in the bottom of a plas­ tic bag and rooting them in this. Or place soil in a pot, insert the cuttings, water well, and then a plastic bag over the pot and all. This acts like a miniature green­ house. CALLING ALL READERS: Friends, when you write to The Green Thumb always include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
