South Carolina's Corn Crop,
The United States l)epart
ment of Agriculture ini a recent
bulletin estimates the crop of
South Caroline at 49,740,000
bushels. A pleasing featurie of
the report was the announce
ment that the acreage had ini
creased duiring the year and ful'
ther that the average production
incr'eased from 16;.7 b~ushels an
acre to 21 bushels. This tremen
(ious Cr01) means that the farm
ers of the state will have a sur
plus of corn and will be able to
sell to other states. Tihe in

year ov r)0 a 8,000,0Q0

several years ago and there has
been a steady increase. No lon..

There was over 3,000 boys on
the farms of South Carolina who
planted an acre of corn last year
Several hundreds of these boys
produced over 75 bushels of corn
on one acre and have been awar
ded certificates of merit by the
State Superintendent of educa
tion and Gov. Ansel. More than
100 of the boys have produced
over 100 bushels on one acre,
and several produced 150 bus
helis. These boys will be the
farmers of the future and the
indications point to South Caro
lina becoming one of the leading
corn States in the United States
The work of the 3,000 boys
has been under the direction of
the U. S. farm demonstration
workers, of which Ira W. Wil
lianis is at the head in this State.
The champion boy corn grow
er of the world lives in South
Carolina, and he has produced
228 bushels on one acre of land.
The boy is 15 years of age, his
name is unknown. He lives in
the Pee Dee section of this State
and is a soi of a minister. T'he
marvelous Yield was secured on
the )parsoiage land. The re
cords of the boy are in Wash
ington and are being considered
by the national department of
agriculture, and his name will
be announced from there.
