Bill McCullough, former Olympia Ev- ergreen League pitcher, held the Loggers pretty well in check the rest of the way. Next Sunday the Loggers go to Elma for a return game with the Elma Townies. “'HO MAKES THE POPPIE.‘ ‘.’ The American Legion and Aux- iliary poppies are made by dis- abled war veterans in govern- ‘ment hospitals and in convales- cent workrooms maintained by the Auxiliary. Many hundreds of vet- erans, unable to do other work, are given employment during the winter and spring months, their‘ annual earnings exceeding $100,- 000. This year poppies were made with approximately 12,000,000 of the flowers being produced. AVEVIR USE MR'SII/Frfk {7 may acct-“Rana” umwoar IVES/74770” .r O half—way measures with ~Hydra-Matic Drive!

We hear that 13,000,000 man-days have been lost thus far this year. That means a lot of tanks—12,000 someone says. , 1 The loss is great and must be reduced. When the nation is straining every nerve to perfect its defense any serious loss of strength through strikes iin erils the enterpriselputs all the people in Jeopar. y.‘ I Just now,"we measure the loss of national strength and-productiveness through strikes, a voluntary refusal towork. It will be logical and appropriate, when this. crisis has been passed, to make similar calculatiOns of the loss of national strength through that other way of wasting man- unemployment. From 1930 to 1940 there was an average of 10,000,000 unemployed in the United States. The time and labor of 10,000,000 menwere going to waste. These losses of labor are figured in man- days lost. In four months, through strikes, it is said that 13,000,000 man-days have been‘lost thus far this year. With 10,000,000 men unemployed, as in the last decade, we lose 13,000,000 man-days, the 1035‘ ' through strikes in the past four months, every 13 days. Through these 10 years we were losing in use of labor every 30 days as much as is lost, at this year’s rate, in a. whole year of strikes. The huge loss by unemployment doesn’t jus- tify the lesser loss by strikes in time of threat of war. Yet it is a loss. The labor loss in these 10 Iyears would have given us, to use the calculation of this year’s strikes, 144,000 huge tanks and heaven knows What clouds of battle planes each year.

The genus includes nearly 300 species and an even larger num—, Colors ' ber of beautiful hybrids. include white, yellow, pink, red, lavender, mauve, violet and pur- pie. ' As to shape of blossoms, under this classification we can divide the clematis into three groups: 1. Those with small white flowers in panicles or loose and irregular spreading clusters (such as Clematis paniculata). 2. Those with bell—shaped urn-shaped flowers (such as Cle- matis texensis). 3. Those with more or less flat or open flowers (such as Clematis montana and Clematis jackmani). Where a light, open vine withl a showy bloom clematis is ideal. It is best to use a trellis to provide means for climbing, and this trellis should be provided as is wanted, the soon as the vine is set out; the. stems are very brittle and easily broken by the wind, and thus im-. mediate support should be pro— vided.

All that is necessary is to ‘ remove dead and weak shoots, or lthose that crowd. Examples of this type are Clematis montana; Clematis florida; and Clematis patens. Species which bloom on lwood (young basal shoots) in the summer and fall require more lsevere pruning. This would in— clude the large flowered group such as Clematis jackmani, and . it also includes Clematis panicula- ta. The late flowering Clematis paniculata may have the lateral shoots cut back almost to the main stem in the spring, where it is necessary to restrict growth. ; After the summer and fall bloom— ling clematis is well established, cut the Vines back :In the early spring to a height of to 3 feet, to encourage vigorous new grow— I I l I l l I l I i l 3 only t tilel‘c and 0105 Feed in early spring, applying} l l :3. , urc placed l ed before doing much in the way!

How—' p 2’ A y ever, when clematis is planted in full sun, shade the lower stems and roots with low—growing plants or ground covers, or mulch with peat moss, as nearly all speciesI like cool moist root-run, whilef the top of the vine requires sun. Soil I Most clematis growers recom-l mend an alkaline soil for thisl vine, and hence suggest occas- ional applications of lime. How— ever, since authorities have found that some clematis will do well in acid soils, they have not def- initely satisfied themselves whe— ther it is the alkalinity of the soil, or its texture, that is most important. The soil should be a rich, well-drained loam, and deep— ly dug. It should be light and porous. If the texture of the soil is heavy, lighten it by the addition of sand or peat moss, S The addition of peat moss will also increase the moisture-holding capacity of the soil, which is very desireable. How to Plant: Do not plant too shallow. Plant with the collar of the plant to 3 inches below the surface of the soil. Be sure that you have pre- pared a hole that is sufficiently large to accommodate the roots easily.
