Chris and Ellen,
I urge you, please, get a written report of your experiences related above to
Currier McEwen. Currier has an on going project on diseases and pests of
Siberians and Japanese, and has been collecting every possible datum re this
subject. He has worked to get research done in these matters, and it is very
important to get him this information. Thanks. Clarence Mahan in VA
