Psoralea Soars To Popularity [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953
Psoralea Soars To Popularity THIS SPRING Psoralea bushes seem to be bigger and brighter than for years past. nPHERE are splendid specimens at almost every turn of the road in North Shore gardens,' where shrub-culture is al- most a passion, Psoralea pinnata was fore destined to success not so many years ago, when it first reached circulation. Thc lovely, sparkling blue (call it mauve-blue) of the massed, pea-shaped flowers ensured that. Both the pro- digality of them and their setting in serried array in big clusters make them stand out. Keep It Sliapely The bush itself is nicely ' decorative in narrow, nice green leaflets, lt grows lustily. In good soil Psoralea needs hard pruning , as soon as the flowers fall. Cut well back along every flowering branch and shoot, almost to the base of last summer's wood. That keeps it shapely and compact and a cover of those blue blossoms comes over it like a mantle again next spring. Watered well in summer, its surface-feeding, voracious roots nee...

Seed-setting Is Exhausting [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953
Seed-setting ls Exhausting TT" EEP pansies and pop * pies picked now that they are blooming freely. Even though we've had a few warm (even hot) days recently, it is remarkable how these early springtime colour-makers keep on flow- ering. The main thing is to water them well and often (not necessarily soak with sprink- ler), and mulch or lightly till the surface between water- ings. That way, poppies, pan- sies and sweet peas among other annuals can be kept going for quite a while yet in this mostly hostile season. These winter-workers are not as soft as they look. In places, poppies have been decimated by spotted wilt. These yellowed and roset- ted plants need removing. They are the usual casual- ties of a freakish and dry springtime.

KILL WHITE CEDAR CATERPILLARS [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953
KILL WHITE CEDAR CATERPILLARS TV/TELIA AZEDARACH, the white cedar, is a tree of extremely grace- ful aspect. It is beautiful when clustered with lovely lilac blossoms. Inland it adorns street and home gardens effectively. Next to the peppercorn and the Athel, it is a dry climate mainstay, putting up some splendid performances. Forbes melias are master- pieces. On the coast a blight in the form of a leaf-eating hairy caterpillar puts it out of court. Bul these pesty things can be controlled if the job is tackled early. From now on keep a sharp lookout near the base of the tree trunks. These caterpillars are noc- turnal feeders. They con- gregate during the day near ground" level. Watch, sweep and destroy them, but don't wait until they take charge.

Churchill Says Danger Is Further Away PARTY SPEECH From Our Staff Correspondent and A.A.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953
Churchill Says Danger Is Further Away PARTY SPEECH From Our Staff Correspondent and A.A.P. MARGATE, Oct. 10.-The Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill, said to-day that he believed danger was further away than when his Govern- ment took office. "Certainly the sense of crisis in our world relations is less than it was two years ago," he told 2,500 delegates at the Conservative Party congress. It was his first speech since his recent illness. j Sir Winston said:. "The vast majority of all the peoples wherever they may dwell', desire above all things to carri their daily bread in peace. "Our first duty is to aid the United Nations loyally and faithfully in ¡ts task. But the world also needs patience. It "needs -a period of calm rather than vehement attempts to pro- duce clear-cut solutions. "There' have been many periods where prompt and valiant action might have averted calamities. This is not one of them. "Even, if we entered on a . phase only of easement for five, or 10 years that m...

Compulsory Holidays STAFF CORRESPONDENT NEW YORK, Saturday. -Bank clerks in Indiana are being forced to take their annual holidays. They are the only work- ers who must take them on a compulsory basis. Indiana was plagued by bank shortages after World War li-. The new law has cut embezzlements to the lowest on record. Explains Mr. Joseph McCord, director of the State Financial Commission, "We found that most clerks who took money in the past refused vacations so their books couldn't be examined by someone else."

STURT GRIFFITH DISCUSSES Summer Check-Up [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953
ll CERTAIN FAULTS can lie dormant dur- ing thc cold winter months, but become active in thc heat of summer driving. HPHE most important I ?*. checks for the ap- proaching hot weather are thc radiator and thc tyres. Both of these units will be heavily stressed in the months ahead. The radiator and cooling system will undoubtedly be due for a flush. Buy a can of radiator flushing compound of a re- cognised brand recommend- ed by your garage, and fol- low its direction in cleansing the cooling system. Thc purpose of this flush out is to remove sediment and rust which reduce the effectiveness of the cooling system, and may choke the operation of the thermostat, and cause boiling. Having cleansed the cool- ing system, it is an excellent idea to add the required small quantity of soluble oil to the water in the system. This inhibits the forma- tion of rust and sediment, and so preserves the cooling system against further de- terioration. A disconcerting stoppage on thc road, and one thal ...
Hints To Motorists [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 11 October 1953
Hints To Motorists N.R.M.A. engineers offer the following hints to motorists: OIL CHECK When checking thc quantity of oil in thc sump, the rod should he Hiped clean when it is withdrawn and then inserted to take thc reading. Never check the oil while thc motor is running. TYRES A little soap and water rubbed over thc bend of tyres simpli- fies the fitting of these parts, and will lessen the possibility of dam- age to thc tyre bead and lube. FUEL CONSUMPTION Thc economical fuel consumption speed on most cars is 30 to 35 ni.p.li. Tramping on thc accelerator, or sud- den applications of the brakes and speeding up to 35 ni.p.h. are wasteful habits. SPANNERS Never use spanners with "sprung" jaws. It is cheaper to throw them away, as they fend to round bolthcads and make them difficult to remove.
