NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES Codling Moth May be Plentiful [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 3 December 1942
NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES Codling Moth May be Plentiful There is evidence to date to indicate that the codling moth population this year is likely to be a big one. The overwintering brood was particularly large and far more than that we have had for many years past. Even at an" early stage when the fruit was no larger than a thumb nail, grub-infested fruit co'uld be seen on the tree6 in spite of the early sprayings given in nearly all cases. Once again I would like to remind pear growers.that the position regard ing subsequent broods will need watching, and that lures hung in the trees with a ten per cent solution of molasses, still wine, or pure vinegar will give an indication of moth flights. If the vinegar is not pure but consists of acetic acid and water (as some brands are) it wiil not have the same attraction for the moths and will therefore be of no value as a guide. A timely warning given by Mr. J. Proven, ft.Sg.Sc. (Principal of the School of Primary Horticulture at Burnle...

Odd Column INCREASED PROFITS! [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 3 December 1942
I Odd Column! | | Conducted by "GLEANER" | i I «* I I INCREASED PROFITS! Ml-. Abe Philpot (chairman of the Renmark Hotel committee) in review ing tlie history of the Hotel a little while back (the story appeared in "The Pioneer") estimated that profits which had been distributed to local charities amounted to £100,000. This fact was referred to in another iS.A. journal recently, but a misprint in the article gave the figure as £100,0000. It was felt in some local Squartei's that the fact that the comma appeared after the second ' 0" and not l after the third, would enable the read ing public to draw a correct conclus i ion on the matter. Such however, was apparently not the case, for an interstate publication printed subse quently has spelt the sum out as fol j lows. "Profits from the local hotel have been distributed to the extent of more than one million pounds." LOXTON SOLDIER IN DARING DESERT RAID WCpl.
